Last Wednesday  in Jury’s Croke Park Hotel Dublin, Embarcadero ran the latest in their series of interactive workshops – RAD Studio XE2 in Action LIVE! As Irelands authorised Embarcadero Reseller Partner Micromail was in attendance. Presenting was Embarcadero’s Stephen Ball who as always gave an excellent presentation. FireMonkey with its cross platform capabilities was the biggest crowd pleaser on the day.

After chatting with some of the developers in attendance the subject of re-starting the Irish Delphi User Community was raised again. As a first step I have created a new LinkedIn group with the imaginative title of Delphi Irish User Group. This is an Open Group so any Delphi users out there, please feel free to join and contribute.

Look forward to meeting you there.

Most Symantec customers are well aware of the support/maintenance subscription that comes with their Symantec Licences whether it be for Symantec EndPoint Protection or Symantec Protection Suite etc. Support is usually procured as Basic or Essential with your original licence purchase and renewed annually thereafter.

Some recent news from Symantec may impact the next time you are looking to renew your Symantec Maintenance.

Symantec previously had a generous grace period whereby you could renew your maintenance upto 90 days post expiry. While not recommended for such an important security update many customers would have renewed support quite late in the day. Recently, Symantec has decided to close this gap and from April will operate a strict 30 day grace period for all renewals.

Our recommendation – get your Symantec support renewed before expiry date but certainly within the 30 day grace period so you are not faced with Upgrade costs to re-instate this vital maintenance contract.
