Nieuwe publieke WiFi van @DeWaterkanten is best snel

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/28

Voor de verhuizing van het Sportfondsen zwembad van van Sportcentrum de Lis naar Sportcomplex de Waterkanten was het publieke WiFi internet daar niet vooruit te branden.

Na de verhuizing gelukkig wel: grofweg 40/10 Mbps downstream/upstream.

De verbinding loopt via Ziggo Zakelijk:

Nu de draadloze PIN apparatuur nog, want die doet het niet.

Gelukkig doet het bedrade PIN apparaat het wel (:

OS X Finder: viewing hidden paths

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/27

One of the most frustrating things on a Mac is that the OS X Finder does not allow you to browse all paths.

Unlike Windows the Windows Explorer, where it is fairly easy to switch a preference for enabling/disabling showing the hidden files and folders, there is no option in the Preferences. There is a command-line trick (see below) to enable/disable showing hidden files and folders.

Luckily, both the Windows Explorer and the Mac OS X Finder allow you to specify the full folder path to browse, where you can enter a path that otherwise would (partially) be invisible.

  • Windows Explorer: just enter a full path in the address bar.
  • Mac OS X Finder: press Shift-Command-G (or Menu -> Go -> Go to Folder...), then enter the full path.

An alternative for Mac OS X is the payed (but great tool) Path Finder which is one of the best Finder replacements I know.

For both FX and DX lenses: printable Nikon lens hood templates – via Nikon Rumors

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/23

Since I posted In case I ever misplace/break one: Free printable cardboard lens hoods, I found that Nikon Rumours had covered that too.

Now the added even more coverage in Printable Nikon lens hood templates | Nikon Rumors.

Which is kind of neat as now there are two kinds of printable lens hoods: DX (for my D300) and FX (for my D700).


PS: Missed Schedule fired again on this post as it was originally scheduled for 6:00 some European time zone (not sure which, as is unclear about that though).

Home Labs made easier with VSAN 6.0 + USB Disks | virtuallyGhetto

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/20

Interesting; steps can be found in Home Labs made easier with VSAN 6.0 + USB Disks | virtuallyGhetto:

Disclaimer: This is not officially supported by VMware and should not be used in Production or evaluation of VSAN, especially when it comes to performance or expected behavior as this is now how the product works. Please use supported hardware found on the VMware VSAN HCL for official testing or evaluations.

For a VSAN home lab, using cheap consumer USB-based disks which you can purchase several TB’s for less than a hundred dollars or so and along with USB 3.0 connectivity is a pretty cost effective way to enhance hardware platforms like the Apple Mac Mini and Intel NUCs.

How to move your Google Code project to GitHub

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/18

Thanks David Millington for pointing me to How to move your Google Code project to GitHub.

A small quote from it:

By the end of this article, you will have:

  • Moved the repository, including commit history, from the Google Code project to a new GitHub project
  • Updated the Google Code project to redirect to the new project location
  • Updated the Google Code repository so users updating will find out they need to use the new project location
  • Set up some basic project settings in your new GitHub project.
