cool: “A small app to browse through which is what in css” (via: This is why I Code – Google+)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/17

+This is why I Code has pointed me to a really nice app called CSS Vocabulary which interactively shows you what is what in CSS.

Click on the CSS code or the column with CSS syntax elements on the right to see their correspondence.

The app is written by About Ville – Foolproof by design and source code is at the sakamies/css-vocabulary · GitHub repository.

The blog entry is at CSS Vocabulary – Foolproof by design.

Fiddler2 to the max: inserting proxy authentication to use DropBox (or other app) behind a corporate firewall

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/04/16


A while ago, I was working with a not so cooperative corporate firewall. All web browsers would work fine, but most other applications would not go through the proxy in a nice way.

For instance, DropBox would show the dreadfull “Connection Error” dialog shown on the right.

That dialog basically means “Dropbox has no clue what happens, try fiddling with your proxy or account settings, then press Reconnect Now” to retry.

Many other applications had issues (for instance Visual Studio connecting to Team Foundation System was very unreliable and the workarounds clumsy).

CNTLM: not the solution

I got inspired by the I code and code: Tutorial: How to use Dropbox behind a corporate proxy server using CNTLM, even though I was pretty sure the corporate firewall was not NTLM based.

And indeed, CNTLM -v -M http://google.com -c CNTLM.INI would give errors like this:

cntlm: Proxy returning invalid challenge!
headers_send: fd 4 warning -999 (connection closed)
Connection closed

HTTP Fiddler: looks promising

So I fired up my old buddy Fiddler 2 HTTP debugging proxy.

Further on, you will learn that Fiddler2 is much more, but right now it is enough to know that it basically sits as a local proxy between your applications and the outside world. Read the rest of this entry »

EU Cookie Regulations vs. Google+ plugins (via: Gerwin Sturem; Google Drive)

Posted by Jeroen Pluimers on 2014/03/31

Interesting article by Gerwin Sturm on EU Cookie Regulations vs. Google+ plugins.

It’s not just that the directive causes this nagging because “of course we can’t remember that users haven’t given us consent for storing cookies, because that would require storing a cookie, so the consent banner will always appear until the user has actually given consent.”

Some other valuable tips are in this article as well. Now go read it (:
