I'm a Delphi developer mainly, with 12+ years of experience, having done things ranging from ActiveX controls, maintaing and evolving systems to creating an (private) web service acting as business layer in Delphi.net.

I have some experience with C#/Vb.net too.

comment Task manager network graph; what's yellow?
Because that menu "Network Adapter History" only appears when WTM is showing the Networking tab.

comment File sizes in Windows not making sense
@ZanLynx: Sincerely, even being born and live in a metric country my whole life, some measures of the Imperial system are MUCH better for everyday use. I tried it for 2 days and never in my life I had a so successful experience in estimation. Inches in television sets, for example. So, they are not wrong. That system is coherent once you understand it. So is the system used in storage of bits/bytes. It describes the quantities of binary units. So makes a lot of sense to use powers-of-2 for it. It's perfectly coherent.

@ZanLynx Mega = 10^6 in decimal. Since tradicionally storage is measured in binary sizes (not in SI), it's used the nearest power-of-2 - which is 20, so the result is 1048576 bytes.

comment Does 5 GB of jpeg images take the same amount of time to download and/or import as 5 GB of plain text?
What was the database involved? Different RDBMS are more or less "network efficient" than others. You measured from connection establishment or just the dataset data? I'm really curious.
