I have many a Borland tale too. Great guys. Where are they now?

I once turned up for an interview that was, in reality, done and dusted,
only to be told that the CEO had put in place an employment freeze the
day before. I'd flown across the globe.

I later did a keynote speech at one of their confs while at Sun. I was
a Java dude by then.

Delphi was the nuts back then, imo. Pascal or not, it beat the crap out
of the c++ nonsense.
