Time really is running out to register for the number one event on the Australian Delphi Calendar. Registrations will close at 11pm, this coming Tuesday 19th March with the event itself held in Melbourne on Thursday 21st March and Sydney 22nd March.

Members of ADUG can register with some very significant discounts by first logging into the ADUG website and then registering.
Non Members can register by clicking here.

So I was made an Embarcadero MVP about two weeks ago, an achievement I’m quite proud of. It was, I believe, largely for my work on the TIndex and my off-line ADUG activities more so than my blog entries here.
Meanwhile everyone’s favourite grumpy old uncle (well he reminds me of a grumpy old uncle anyway) has made a few comments here and there about the impartiality of the new MVPs. Come on Uncle Jolyon, can’t we MVPs have the benefit of the doubt for a few weeks at least. Continue reading
