# Current Engineering Project

I keep this engineering notebook more for my own use more than for any other reason. It's invaluable when trying to find a solution to a problem I know I've solved before. You are welcome to browse though it to see what it takes to build a SETI station a Cosmic Ray detector or a replacement brain component..

You can access earlier chapters from the main menu (Engineering | Notebook) or use the custom search below.

## 445 - Installing GENESIS Neural Simulator - 2020-04-25

I final decided I had to find a baseline simulator to use while I worked on mine. All the simulators require Linux, which I hate with a purple passion, but I finally got one to run under Windows.
If you want to use the GENESIS simulator under Windows here are the steps.

Install Cygwin on Windows 10

## 444 - Delphi Frame - 2020-03-27

I can never remember how to build a new Delphi frame and add it to a project. Here is the recipe.

1. Start a new project and get it running
2. Then start a new frame with: File | New | Other | Delphi Individual Files | VCL Frame (This takes a few seconds so cool your jets)
3. A new unit will appear in your Project. Rename it to something memorable like 'uTestFrame'
4. Change the frames form to something memorable like 'TestFrame' and SaveAll | Close All

The to get the new frame in the palette do

1. File | Open and navigate to the uTestFrame.pas file Open it
2. Now with the blank frame form showning Right Click | Add To Pallette
3. Then Change the Component name to something like TTestFrame (leave the leading T) and use 'Standard' for the palette page
