Moving on

You may have noticed that I've not done any programming or updates to Delphidabbler.com for quite a long time. Neither have I been active here.

I keep telling myself that I'll get round to maintaining and modernising the site, but the hard fact is I won't.

So I'm announcing that delphidabbler.com will get few if any more updates and will close in one year. I've just renewed the web space for another year ... it will expire on 15 June 2020 and after that the site will be gone.

I will try - no promises - to do one final release of CodeSnip that removes it's dependency on the web server.

I will be retaining ownership of delphidabbler.com for at least a while longer because I'm dependent on it for email. The plan is to point it at my GitHub account and to move more stuff there. If anyone would like to take over the site content, please get in touch.

What am I doing instead? I'm concentrating on my guitar playing and learning to play acoustic blues under the pseudonym Alo Phogg. If anyone's interested check out my YouTube and Facebook accounts.

I'm sorry that I've neglected the site after investing so much time in it since 2002. It was the escalating costs of updating Delphi that discouraged me in the first place. But when my love of guitar playing resurfaced that sealed it. Anyway, it's not gone yet. I'll keep you posted thru this blog. And thanks for the support over the years.

Cheers

I would also like to say "Big Thanks" to you. I have used a few of your components for several years, especially TPJCtrlDropFiles, TPJFormDropFiles, TPJWdwState. Your Console Application Runner Classes are the first class. All the best for you!
