Added a few links to my “Tools” page, @WordPress bug spuriously inserting div tags still present.

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/12/28

While re-designing a Visual Studio 2010 plus Delphi XE2 install for a specific client, I updated some of my Tools page links:

And found out that the WordPress still wrongly inserts div tags when you step out a list by pressing Enter twice is still present. Annoying, as it has been there for at least 2 years, so I’m still interesting in people having a workaround for it.

Station Sassenheim opgenomen in de Android Sneltrain app, lezen @NS_Online en @NS_Stations even mee?

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/12/27

Eerder schreef ik over De NS en UserExperience: er valt nog veel te leren over ondermeer het nieuwe Station Sassenheim en het gebrek aan ondersteuning in Apps omdat de NS webservice na (inmiddels) ruim 2 weken nog steeds niet in haar webservice heeft opgenomen.

Daarmee geeft de NS haar eigen site dus een concurrentievoordeel tegen apps.

Inmiddels is er voor de Sneltrein Android app een update geweest en kun je daar toch Station Sassenheim kiezen. Dank Jouke!

Nu nog een iOS versie van de Sneltrein App :)

Google Calendar: Quick Add to specific calendar? – Calendar Help – @google

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/12/27

It would be so cool if Google re-added this feature:

  1. Deselect all calendars but one
  2. Quick Add an event
  3. The event gets added to this one selected calendar

Now all events always get added to your default calendar. I remember this worked somewhere in 2010. But now it fails when adding about 200 events by hand on a secondary calendar :(

See this discussion thread:

tiburon200; 3/21/09

When using quick add, is it possible to place the new event on a specific calendar (ie, home, work) or is that only an option through the regular “Create Event” method?

Thanks for any insight… seems like it should be pretty easy, but I can’t find the right syntax.

This used to be possible by just hiding all other calendars, but this got broken some time ago…

Merry Xmas

Posted by jpluimers on 2011/12/25

It is christmas morning, with a beautifull green dike behind our house: obviously it is not winter, and with 10 degrees centigrade it almost feels like spring :)

At about 0900 it was still wonderfully silent outside, what a change to the last few days!

With the Christmas tree snowing – my brother was very proud he could help assembling it a few days ago – its tiny polystyrene snow perls.

Listening and watching (asx) the Top 2000 has become a tradition, and we’re really looking forward for our astronaut André Kuipers to open this years edition at noon today live from the ISS International Space Station where he is part of Expedition 30.

Tonight, a lovely dinner, and tomorrow a dinner we will be at my brothers place with my mom setting up a bouillon fondue (he will get an electric fondue pot as a present, so no chance he will set his house on fire by accident) and using the ingredients in the kerstpakket he got from his company to make really nice salad.

Wishing you all a very nice Christmas!
