Financial Information & Real-Time Matchmaking (FIRM) Expo.

The Financial Information & Real-Time Matchmaking (FIRM) Expo seems to be another recent effort to support business in Jamaica, and of course I applied as soon as I heard about it. So far I haven't heard anything but I'll be posting updates on how things go.

StartUp Jamaica is here!

Start-Up Jamaica is (according to their website) "an accelerator (a physical facility that takes equity in start-up technology companies that go through an intensive selection process, in return for seed capital, training and mentorship)". I applied to Start-Up Jamaica almost as soon as I heard about it. My application was rejected but I'm still excited to have an accelerator in Jamaica. I've checked out a few like TechStars and Y Combinator but I never expected to see one in Jamaica (at least not so soon).

Anyway, I just thought I would do my bit to promote Start-Up Jamaica.

Creating Irie Pascal 3 April 2014

I have added support for two major new features to StrongLib (i.e. the library that makes it easy to create Windows applications). These new features are:
 Irie Pascal 3 may not use the support for TCP/IP sockets, but I added it because I needed the support for another project.

Irie Pascal 3 will use the support for bitmaps because some windows controls (like Toolbar, Ttree-View, and List-View controls) can use bitmaps.
