If all you had to eat . . .

My youngest son frequently likes to clean the dirt from between his toes.  During a recent cleaning session he asked me (out of the blue and with a straight face):  “Daddy, if all you had to eat was the dirt from between your toes, would you eat it?”

He likes to take pictures on the iPod Touch, and he sometimes gets himself; I think he probably does this by accidentally engaging the rear-facing camera.  Anyway, here’s one he took recently.  (Maybe he was thinking about eating the dirt from between his toes.)

Embarcadero XE2 Rollout

Yesterday I attended the Embarcadero XE2 conference in Arlington, Virginia.  I’m still trying to determine if it would be worthwhile to upgrade from Delphi 2006.  I really like the LiveBindings implementation and FireMonkey, but I didn’t hear a single reference to MVC.  I also asked if they have the capability to define the object model and then migrate it into a database schema automatically as you can do with Django/Python, and the answer was No.  If they would implement this easy database creation functionality that is available via Django, as well as Better GUI Separation and Abstraction , i.e. MVC, then the upgrade decision would be easy.
