Refined: Alternate (offline) Google Chrome installer (Windows) – Google Help « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of Wiert stuff

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/30

Just updated my earlier post on Google Chrome offline installers with this info:

Google Chrome has two offline installers: one single user install, and one for all users on the same Windows machine.

It ends up at one of these download pages, each with a download link for the current version (which changes for every new version):

Shortcut URL for login with NS Businesscard as @NS_online made it way to hard to book a trip in a fast and friendly manner

Posted by jpluimers on 2012/03/30

Somehow the Nederlandse Spoorwegen “improved” their site for business users.

They added a lot of functionality, and made the User Experience the for most frequently used feature a lot harder: book a trip with a NS Business Card with the accompanying PIN code.

You need to login, follow a close to a dozen steps before you land on the booking site. Not handy when you are in a hurry to book your Fyra trip.

Luckily the auto-login URL for that booking site is very easy: it is parameterized with your NS Businesscard number (lets say it is 9876543210) and PIN code (lets assume 1234).
Then the URL is this:

https://boeken.nsbusinesscard.nl/wwwTR/component.servlet?component=selectAutoLogin&action=autoLogin&CARDNUM=9876543210&CARDPW=1234

Presuming you have a personal machine with adequate protection, add that shortcut to your favourites and you are done.
