Signing your Delphi executables with a digital certificate.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/25

Using Delphi build-events (see my post Delphi prebuild/prelink/postbuild events), you can automate the process of signing your Delphi executables with a digital certificate.

Below the steps for signing Windows executables.

Prerequisites:

  1. You have your digital certificate in a PFX file.
    (for testing you can use a self-signed certificate, for the real world you want a certificate leads to a CA).
  2. You have the Windows SDK installed that provides SignTool.
    (in this case, I presume a Windows 7 or 8 x64 machine with the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8 installed. If not, you have to change the path in the various statements, for instance when using the Windows SDK: Download the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and More | MSDN.)

The post-build event code Read the rest of this entry »

Instantly save a web-page to the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive: www.archive.org)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/24

Saving a web page for posterity is really easy: just prepend http://liveweb.archive.org/ in front of the URL in your browser, then open the page.

The Wayback Machine (Internet Aarchive) wil instantly archive it.

See this great answer by Jeff Atwood quite a while ago:

One thing that the ineffable Jason Scott just pointed out to me on Twitter:

if you give the url of the page to http://liveweb.archive.org and wait five minutes, it will archive that page. How about that?

Also you can enter http://liveweb.archive.org/http://www.website.com/page to have it happen without visiting the page.

So if you want to ensure that a popular soon-to-be or may-possibly-be deleted question gets archived by the Internet Archive, manually feed them to the URL above.

I suppose for already deleted questions, we could also undelete, wait 5 minutes, let it archive, then re-delete.

[NL] Full-page kaart van Parkeren Amsterdam – Gemeente Amsterdam

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/23

Helaas bevat de web-pagina Parkeren Amsterdam – Gemeente Amsterdam maar een heel klein kaartje.

Een beetje door de HTML heen bladeren lijdt tot een full-page kaart op http://amsterdam-maps.bma-collective.com/embed/parkeren/tarieven/index_desktop.html.

Handig!
