David I's "The Developer Twelve Days of Christmas 2014" Back in 2010, I wrote a blog post with a simple Delphi VCL program "The Developer's 12 Days of Christmas" which displayed the traditional lyrics and my attempt at some updated technology based lyrics. For 2014, I've created a FireMonkey version of the same application. Similar to the original sample, this multi-device FMX version has two TButtons and a TMemo. I have added a TToolBar component and also made sure that the buttons are half of the TToolBar's width and resize based on the target...

I have a Windows VM running on the Mac on which I do all my dev builds.  My dev machine is a Macbook Pro. I run VMWare Fusion, in unity mode, and life is generally good; it's a very nice cross targeting solution.  The hitch was that when I switched VPNs, DNS no longer worked from the Window...
