What's New

This page details the changes I've been making to my Web site.  It's a matter of convenience, if anything: it rounds up the various changes under one roof so you don't have to wander around the site trying to spot the new things.  Especially for frequent viewers...

Without any more preamble:

30 June, 2000

EZDSL has moved to a new home. 


29 June, 2000

Yes, it's me again! No, I'm not dead, I just have no life. Anyway, EZDSL is being changed...  

26 October, 1999

Yikes, it's been a while since I updated this site... Anyway, I've released version 3.02 of EZDSL. Not many changes, just official support for Delphi 4 and 5. Download it now!

16 June, 1999

Added more comments on the sorting chapter from Delphi 3.0 Algorithms on the Computer Book Reviews page.

5 May, 1999

I've added a review of Digital Typography by Don Knuth. This book has really impressed me; I found it completely fascinating. Well worth it.

17 March, 1999

I've added a book review of Enduring Love.

11 March, 1999

I've added book reviews of Summer for the Gods, Cosm, and A Song of Stone.

4 March, 1999

I've updated the Plays page (about ruddy time too!) with the reviews of What The Butler Saw. Also the day before yesterday, I ran across a couple of funny sites which I've put in my Miscellaneous page. Unfortunately IllusionWorks ho longer has a web site so I removed it. Boy, does FrontPage go gaga when an image link is broken...

27 January, 1999

A little clean-up, hardly worth mentioning really, to the Computer Book Reviews page.

13/14 January, 1999

I've written a few more book reviews. Novels this time, including a favorite from way back by Christopher Priest. The lengthy review of Delphi 3.0 Algorithms has been moved to a new Computer Book Reviews page.

12 January, 1999

After a long time away from my site: I'm baaaaaack! Who knows why it's taken me so long to update everything from last September? Well, I got married, we were broke, I was behind in my articles for The Delphi Magazine, I wanted to catch up on some reading, etc, etc. And since last September, FrontPage did it to me again and trashed my Web site - OK, it's official: I dislike it intensely and will be moving on.

In the meantime, I've also purchased a domain name and have been designing that new web site (it won't use FrontPage extensions, fer shure: twice bitten, in the trash). I bought a great book to help me: The Non-Designers Web Book by Robin Williams and John Tollett; more of which later. The new web site will be dedicated to my programming stuff (EZDSL, my articles, various new how-to articles, etc), leaving this web site for my personal stuff. Of course there'll be links to and fro. I'll be revealing the new site when it's presentable.

So onto the new stuff today. The plays page changed with news of my new part in What the Butler Saw. I finally finished my review of Ready to Run Delphi 3.0 Algorithms by Rod Stephens: a blockbuster of a review. At least it shows I read the damn book which is more than can be said for any tech editor during the editing stage.
