Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISO formats: Microsoft, please do this the same for Visual Studio 11 (#VS11 #W8)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/02

Hopefully they will add Visual Studio 2011 ISOs (no, not the current ones that still download the prerequisites in the background) like they did with the Windows 8 Consumer Preview ISOs:

Zo moet het dus niet: Zorg en Zekerheid zet relatienummer niet meer op polisblad (gemiste kans voor @zorgenzekerheid)

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/02

Verminderen van lastendruk is leuk, maar het is natuurlijk niet de bedoeling dat gegevens die op een verzekeringspas ineens niet meer op de polis staan.

Zorg en Zekerheid krijgt het toch voor elkaar: op het polisblad van 2012 staat het relatienummer niet meer vermeld, alleen het BSN nummer.

Als curator van mijn broer doe ik vrijwel al zijn administratie, dus ook het aanmelden van een vakantiekamp voor mensen met een verstandelijke beperking.

Die willen graag het relatienummer weten (en het BSN nummer geven gaat mij wat ver: hoewel ik de organisatoren vertrouw, ben ik bij mijn broer nog huiveriger voor identiteitsdiefstal dan voor mijzelf).

Die verzekeringspas (waar beide nummers op staan) is al een jaar of 3 oud, dus wat lastiger electronisch terug te vinden dan het polisblad.

Dank Zorg en Zekerheid dat jullie het voor elkaar krijgen om dit soort dingen moeilijker te maken!

version v3.3.4.14431 of Beyond Compare released by Scooter Software

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/02

About a week ago, version v3.3.4.14431 of Beyond Compare was release by Scooter Software.

For me, this is the ultimate comparison tool as it runs on Windows and Linux natively or under WINE on Mac OS.

It has a massive change list:

v3.3.4.14431      February 24, 2012

- Notable Changes
  - Fixed context menus on newer versions of Konqueror, Thunar, and Nautilus.
  - FILE-REPORT (and TEXT-REPORT, etc.) commands will now accept a saved file
    compare session name instead of a pair of files.  E.g., "file-report
    layout:side-by-side output-to:printer MySession".

- Archives
  - Fixed extracting files where a single deflate block contains more than 1MB
    of data.
  - Fixed zips showing non-existent files if a zip contained another zip and
    the outer one had additional data after the archive comment.
  - Attempting to extract a file from a zip using an unsupported compression
    algorithm now shows that as an error.
  - Split up zip error messages for "Error during extraction" and "Unsupported
    compression algorithm".

  - Fixed foreground selection coloring when using white on blue system colors.
  - Added key accelerators to "Save changes" dialog.

- Folder Compare
  - Long file operations will now keep Windows from going to sleep due to
  - Using "Compare to" to open a file view and then using "Next/Previous
    Difference Files" now closes the file view.

  - Fixed support for FTP listings with filenames containing Chinese
    month/year characters.
  - Fixed parsing Comau C5G FTP listings.

- Home View
  - When editing a session, dropped files/folders are ignored unless they're
    on a path edit.
  - Expand All and Collapse All commands now affect the shared and auto-saved
    sessions nodes.
  - Fixed behavior when using "Collapse All" hides the currently selected

- Linux
  - Fixed context menus on newer versions of Konqueror, Thunar, and Nautilus.
  - Fixed Folder Compare crash when performing rules-based comparisons.
  - Fixed clicking the "Next Difference Files" link on the message panel when
    using "Next Difference" at the end of a comparison.
  - Fixed various comboboxes incorrectly allowing editing.

- Misc
  - Fixed menu checkboxes not showing on Vista and Windows 7 when using the
    Classic Theme.
  - Dropping files/folders onto a path edit no longer changes the edit if the
    drop results in a new view.
  - Added "RE Examples" buttons to Grammar Item dialog.
  - Improved Open/Save dialog handling of file type options.

- Options
  - "Customize Commands" dialog's "Default" command now checks to see if
    shortcut is already in use.

  - Fixed loading .reg files with a '\' before hex data.

- Scripting
  - FILE-REPORT (and TEXT-REPORT, etc.) commands will now accept a saved file
    compare session name instead of a pair of files.  E.g., "file-report
    layout:side-by-side output-to:printer MySession".

  - Fixed support for STRIKEOUT-RIGHT-ORPHANS in TEXT-REPORT command.
