Old school software development

Is still the best way to do it. Not just because of upgrade prices being what they are today, but because whilst a lot of new things have come along, most matter not to me.

And that means older tools work just fine for me. Just about every piece of software I've written for use here doesn't rely on new, clever GUI elements, or do they need 64 bit, unicode webservices, XML and such. Most of it is plain number crunching below the 32 bit boundary. And I prefer the IDEs of old, so that's another reason to not upgrade as well.

I love you Delphi 6 Professional. And Turbo Pascal 7.01, I shall never forget thee, loyal friend through out the ages.
