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!

running dig DNS under Windows

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/21

The dig (domain information groper) command under unix/Linux is a great way to help verify that a DNS host like BIND is working properly.

A few of my servers are Linux, but most of my desktops usually are Windows, so I was happy to find the Using the dig dns tool on Windows 7 article by Dan Esparza explaining there is a Windows version.

So I:

  1. Downloaded the Windows version of BIND (I took the BIND 9.9.2-P1 ZIP file)
  2. Unzipped that into my C:\BIN\BIND directory
  3. Ran this command, just like I would on a Linux box:
    dig @192.168.171.214 pluimers.com
  4. Checked the below output to the zone configuration on the openSUSE box serving the DNS for my domain

; <<>> DiG 9.9.2-P1 <<>> @192.168.171.214 pluimers.com
