The red train you see in this picture is the new model of trains, Forchbahn, a small train leading from Zürich zu Forch and Esslingen, recently bought. This is the very same train that sohuld have been used for public transport next monday. The first new model for 12 years.

Now it seems that I have to wait for some more time before trying it out ;-)

And again: Final Fantasy in concert not as far away as the last one in Japan, but still too far. Of course I will be getting the CD’s…

I’ve just looked at the logs of this webserver and - under the search strings used to find this page, found this: <blockquote>delphi cannot debug anymore</blockquote>It happens that tough I have not written about this particular topic, I certainly have some hints to this fellow searcher (although, they possibly come to late now):

  • Have you compiled your project with debug information? (Project/Options/Compiler).
  • Have you rebuilt your project after changing above settings?
  • Do your files by any chance have Unix-Lineendings? If so, the debugger won't work
  • Have you restarted your PC? Sometimes this works too.

I’m quite sure there are more things that could make the debugger unusable, but unfortunatly I can’t currently think of any more of them. Maybe becuase just the ones listed above are common enough that I remeber them? Delphi is very nice, but sometimes it can be so unstable

My own bookmarks-management is somewhat non-existant. Those few pages I’ve actually bookmarked are the ones with long URLs (longer than for example - a page which definitely is one worthy of being in my bookmarks-file). There are so few bookmarks, that I use only the “Personal Toolbar”-Feature of Mozilla Firefox - the Bookmarks-Menu is completely empty.

As I wanted to do some coding and tweaking around with MovableType, I’ve deceided to create this little tool which renders my original bookmarks.html from my mozilla profile to something more useful.

I initally tried to just apply a CSS-style to the original file, but that was not possible because a) it has much too less named identifiers or structure to style it properly, b) I would have had to do some coding anyway bacause I wanted to display the bookmark-image and c) the original file is nowhere near XHTML-compliant - so that’s another reason which would have forced me to do some coding anyway.

I hope you like the thing and forgive me those two “evil” links - there is virtually no way to get to subtitled animees the legal way, so I have to refer to “other” channels. Much the same with english video games: You simply can’t get them here in Switzerland, so I usually buy the german version and download the english one (Broken Sword 3 was the last one).
