What's New - February, 2005
27, 2005: I'm developing simulation program for an aircraft instrument simulator called the Horizontal Situation Indicator
for Mac, an Air force pilot who programs in Delphi just for
fun. Mac plans to convert an old DOS "Fix-to-Fix" navigation
training program to Delphi during his next deployment.
Here is a Wind Triangle
demo program written just to make sure that I understood the concepts and mathematics for
planning a flight in a specific direction when the wind is
February 22, 2005: Wow! I just updated our Most Popular Downloads report and see that there have been 2200 downloads of Cutlist in the last 30 days - most popular by far! Alert users have found a couple of minor bugs which were corrected last night ("Rotate" rotated the part above the one selected one, attempts to edit the the "field names" line in the Parts list caused a fatal error). Programmers need users - otherwise how would their code ever get tested?
February 20, 2005: I recently posted a notice of availability of our Cutlist program in response to a user's question in the Woodworker's Journal "Ezine". A "Cut List" or "Cutting List" shows the how to cut a required list of parts for a project from an list of available material. Apparently, many of the down-loaders actually used it to create lists for their projects! And wrote me asking how to print results. That was one of those features planned but never implemented. Cutlist Version 2.1 posted today adds that as well as another requested feature - the ability to name the parts in the Parts list.
February 8, 2005: Viewer Phil had written asking how to insert up or down arrows in the sort column header for a sorted string grid. Seemed like a good idea to me so I modified the StringGrid Quicksort program over in Delphi Techniques to do that.
Feb 5, 2005: Here's a clever little puzzle program to amaze and amuse you. The Mindreader can identify the symbol you are thinking of with surprising accuracy
