From The Editor
Mike Prestwood

Hi all,

Social Networking - This month we are featuring an article on social networking for business. In other words, using Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and YouTube for marketing and connecting with other like minded people to collaborate on business.

Our community is now split from our business!  Our online community and our business website are now separate! For a very long time we've wanted to separate our business website from our online community but it took a long time to figure out how to do it. We ended up merging into and doing away with Although it still works for a short period of time. We're mostly done but there are some tweaks we still need to make in order to separate the two even more.

Internet Marketing topic:
Social Networking Business Strategies
by Mike Prestwood

Marketing and sales is about reaching out to people. People are on social networks so you, or your company, should be out there too. For some companies, a particular social network such as Facebook is another valuable marketing channel. For others, a social network might be a way they interact with their key customers or vendors.

Language Basics topic (classic post):
Delphi Comments (// or { ... } or (* ... *))
by Mike Prestwood

Delphi uses // for a single line comment and both {} and (**) for multiple line comments. Although you can nest different types of multiple line comments, it is recommended that you don't. A special comment. Delphi compiler directives are in the form of {$DIRECTIVE}. Of interest for comments is using the $IFDEF compiler directive to remark out code.

What are the benefits of Win32/64 native code such as in Delphi over .Net?


In general terms, native code offers faster potential performance and a smaller footprint but can be more complex to build. Also, native code does not require .Net's runtime -- Common Language Runtime (CLR).
