At ancient times (1997), in the Delphi-L and the Delphi-Talk mailing lists, we had a discussion about placing
a logo in our applications to inform users about the great RAD Tool DELPHI with which we
created our applications (find additional information about the campaign at my "Delphi News"-Page).
Since then, we've found and built some nice "prototype" logo images for this purpose
(see above), choose the one you like most for placing it in your application as Bitmap.
Currently, a total of 36 cool variations is available, also "Powered by JBuilder" and 2
"Powered by C++Builder" variations as well as some great splash screen variations:

Borland officially supports the "Powered By Delphi" Campaign, so feel free to use
the logos and buttons without headache about copyright questions etc. Finally, no one of
the creators of these images claims a copyright for them (even not for the Delphi splash
screens, according to Anders O. from Borland.com). So their implementation in
About-boxes etc. should be a matter of course for each "real" Delphi-Fan (IMHO)...!
If you have created other buttons or optimized one of the above and would like to
donate your creation(s) to the Delphi community by offering it for download here,
please send them to me (it would be
appreciated if they have sort of a "Delphi-look" to ensure their recognizability)!
New: now also contains some variations of the official Delphi splashscreens
as well as the official "Powered By Delphi" variations by Borland (find more about
Borland's official support page for the campaign by clicking here,
and you can find a number of official Borland logos for other purposes here.

Developers are always looking for high-quality button images ("glyphs") and other graphics. During the times I've collected
9.452 of them from various freeware collections etc., and am offering them to the public domain now.
Note: to save download size, the files are strongly compressed in the Cabinet (.CAB) format, you need an appropriate
tool which is capable to extract such archives like Windows Commander or
Warning: the collection might easily fill up your disk, especially if it is formatted
without FAT32 or the Windows NT file system. You should reserve at least 20 MB free space
before starting extraction.
(if your browser makes problems downloading, right-click the link with your mouse and choose "Save link as.."!) or
try it again at faster Internet times (at late night, for example) by using download tools like
NetVampire or Gozilla which
will enable you to continue the download from exactly the position where you lost the connection -
the file itself is NOT corrupted, I've checked it several times.)

Question: Can anyone help us all by organizing them into directories ?
p.s.: you should check out our award-winning utility, the Resource-Grabber, which will
scan the directories and drives on your computer and extract all Bitmaps,
Glyphs (button images), Icons, Cursors, JPEG images and AVI clips it finds inside the programs and
DLL files in any directory of your choice. This will give you thousands of
high-quality glyphs, images and clips in a few minutes. It's definitely worth a try!
Some undocumented registry settings of Delphi 5 (which -slightly adapted- might also work
with Delphi 4 and below) modify the behavior of the Delphi component palette in a manner
you may like! Just download the .REG file by right-clicking with your mouse and read
the explanations inside to make it work as desired! (no support, no warranties)

In 1999, 3 US students started a big survey about Shareware - its image on the software market,
marketing issues, registration incentives, pricing questions and other things which are often
discussed controversially amongst developers.
After reading the results of this survey, many questions should be answered and you will learn
about important things you should know if you are offering programs as "Shareware".
Please note that the file is quite large (requires 33 MB on your harddisk) and
can just be opened by Write or Wordpad (yes, we converted it to RTF in case you don't have
Micro$oft Word 97/2000 installed on your machine).
If you are interested in Shareware publishing, be sure to check out the "Publishing your software"
section of our DELPHI-BOX!

The enclosed textfile describes a detailled procedure to compress Win9x/ME registry files
regardless of their size, or the size of the key values within the registry.
Save space on your harddisk, you'll need it for other huge-sized Micro$oft Applications... ;)

On some Windows NT systems it might happen that you see the message
"Cannot find NETWORK.DRV" pops up instead of loading your screensaver.
I had this problem a few months ago when I had one of my screensavers
running (my first thought was "oh no - a bug in one of my programs!) -
but no: much detective work resulted in my discovery that this weird
behaviour is caused by an incorrect setting in the Windows registry -
and please don't ask me what's been causing it, I simply don't know... =:-)
However, since I find this question showing up in common Windows support newsgroups quite frequently,
I decided to publish my solution, hoping that it might be of help for some of you out there.
After downloading, simply "execute" the .REG file contained in the archive by double-clicking
it with your mouse (Warning: of course, you should only apply this fix if if you actually have the described problems. No support, no warranties.)

During the times, I have collected a large list of antivirus and anti-spam rules for the IMAP server.
If you have this server installed, you could use this ruleset as a basis for your own! Of course you could also use
it to set up a list of rules for your email program, other mailservers like Procmail etc.
Please be warned, though: No support, no warranties. I can not guarantee that this rule set works on your
computer as intended, "as is", it might delete important mails or allow passing unsolicited mails, so it would
definitely be important that you check it carefully before activating it on your server. Also, don't forget to
read the readme file that's included in the ZIP file below.
