Music maniac, wanabe musician, Delphi addict.

Delphi is just hobby, but quite a serious one. I sincerely like being helpful. Answering questions and coming up with solutions are also a kind of nice training for me.

Some of my special interests are: graphics / drawing, component building, and VCL knowledge.

Answers I am most proud of: Key sorting, Intersection and duplicates of arrays, Smooth zooming, Master & slaves, The size independent image badge positioner, TAwImageGrid.

And it baffles me I keep getting upvotes on this simple answer.

comment Clarification about closing a loop in The Looper
@Oli Ok, then the question remains: "How does Abe know when to send a Looper to kill someone?" The movie doesn't explain that, but it's likely that the mobs from future send instructions to Abe in the present, just minutes before they send one to get rid of. In that case, when a Looper dies prematurely, no instructions are send and there won't be 'no-shows'.

comment Why does Cobb wake up in the water?
I have read this answer multiple times by now, but I cannot find an answer in it. Do you mean that the viewer has to make up a reason for Cobb awaking in the water? That's against the logic and the explanatory character of the rest of the film, isn't it?

comment Clarification about closing a loop in The Looper
@Oliver_C Then he doesn't have to be send back in time in order to get him killed, isn't it? He's dead already, problem solved. Slightly more problematic is Abe not living for 30 more years, but he can order his staff to take care of it.

comment What techniques are used by directors to make an actor cry?
+1 I recall a making of of The Portrait of a Lady wherein director Jane Campion gets Nicole Kidman to cry for multiple takes, over and over again. It really was kind of hard to watch, especially if you see both Jane and Nicole having a hard time too.
