No, it's free. You just go and set up a login and password for
yourself. There's some cool stuff at CodeCentral if you're into
Delphi. The search engine is pretty lousy though, so if you picked up a
CodeCentral link from Google, save it to a textfile somewhere and paste it
in your browser once you're logged in to your CC account.

Well, I do, but it's a pretty crufty method that requires owning Acrobat
Professional. I export a query to CSV format using IB_SQL, open the file
in Excel, select the rows and print it to Acrobat PDF Writer.
