Total Collection is indispensable for all serious Delphi developers: don't be without your copy!

The Delphi Magazine has been in publication, in online or printed form, since April 1995. However, all good things eventually come to an end, and the March 2007 magazine (Issue 139) was the last full issue to be produced. Some bonus articles were also published in April 2007.

Subscriptions are no longer available. If you wish to access the articles from the magazine you can purchase a copy of our Total Collection product: all the articles ever published on one handy USB Flash Drive.

It's quite simple: you make a digital payment (of the amount requested, equivalent in £). Then, you'll receive an physical USB stick with all the *.pdf articles, source codes, and so one, in a small cardboard postage box: there is nothing to download. If I remember correctly, I think I had sent an order request with a cheque in €, to iTech or maybe Mr Frazette. British Pound Sterling, apparently, is not yet as volatile as Bitcoins, having regard to the Brexit: so, it should always do the trick.

I think the main question is whether these are still delivered considering that the website is only available in the Internet Archive...

I have the complete collection USB (I also wrote a couple of entries), but I am sure the distribution itself is copyrighted, so I am afraid to put this in the public domain without permission from Chris. At least MY code is in the public domain, because I own the copyrights for the code.
Note you have to consult an archaeology professor to make everything work as intended.

The only thing I can say about Putin - born st Petersburg- is that he is indeed Russian, as opposed to Stalin, who was Georgian. Depending of historical time frame they could both be Lithuanian or Polish...even German. Shut him up!

Indeed, and not half as good as the delphi magazine was.

Be careful with that! Although the contributing authors (including me in some collaborations and code reviews) did have - in general -  the intention to open source their sourcecode contributions, there is a copyright issue. That is why I never published my version of the complete collection.  AFAIK it is OK for the sourcecode in most cases, but not for the magazine itself.
If the editor gave permission then I would like to see that permission in such a distribution. It is by no means freeware. (As opposed to e.g. UNDU, which was an almost equally rich source).
The Delphi magazine payed its authors....

So the issue at hand is: did the original publisher release it to the public domain?
(Like some other companies later did do! )
Then he must have changed his mind.... Possible, but knowing him, not likely: I asked him to consider that.

That is not what this is about.
But because I have his email address and family address. I will ask him what he wants.
If he or his legal representative says no, I will ask the moderators to remove this thread.

You should have done this when the original post was published on November 05, 2017

Well, I am free to publish my articles or articles to which I contributed, see here:
https://www.thedelphigeek.com/2008/01/reposting-tdm-articles.html
That also means, as it reads, that not every author wants that for his code to be the case.
I sent an email, so let's wait for reply.

Reading this forum is really a time-bending experience. Someone ask something, years later another person answers with a link, then another says this thread should be removed after being online for 5 years :D

The difference in time scale being that the "late one" put it online recently. which is not allowed without permission.
(And my person already participate in the discussion from the beginning, what he seems to have missed)

Anyway, I would not be surprised if a total release is possible, because individual authors that asked for permission have been granted that explicitly.
