Embarcadero closing down their Spanish office

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/24

Embarcadero closes down their spanish R&D office putting some 80 people on the street and diminishing the total Delphi R&D team.

Former Chief Scientist Allen Bauer commented:

The Spain office had taken on most of the IDE, Delphi RTL, GetIT, Installer, some DB, Bluetooth components, IoT, QA, and other miscellaneous tasks. They were by-far the largest single group working on RAD Studio. They were all a wonderful, dedicated, excited group of folks. They were eager to learn and truly enjoyed their jobs. I am deeply saddened by this development.

Dell Dimension 9200 Updated to 8GB. – General Hardware – Desktop – Dell Community

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/06/24

From old stock, I still had a few of these machines and gave them away maxed out at 8 GB with a Windows x64 installation and SSD.

You need 4 of these: 2GB DDR2 PC2-5300 @ 667Mhz non-ECC non-registered memory DIMM. Faster DIMMs work too. Registered DIMMs don’t work.
