What is the state of the art of “How Can I Sync My Files Without Having To Store Them Online?”

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/27

Wondering what the state of the art is now, as the article is about 9 months old. How Can I Sync My Files Without Having To Store Them Online?.

Basically I want to keep about 10 TB of data (and growing) in sync on multiple locations (server at home, server in data center, maybe some backup server somewhere else).

New Micro Cornucopia issues on BitSavers (including the Final May 1990 issue)

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/26

Back in the days I started programming, Micro Cornucopia was a wonderful magazine, so I’m glad that BitSavers scanned a few more issues and put them online today, a week after some great PDF scans: Turbo Assembler/Debugger (1993/1994), Borland C++/Object Windows Library (1993):

They covered a lot of languages (x86 and 68k assembly, C, C++, Turbo Pascal and many more), and very interesting hardware designs.

TreeMap DiskUsage view Android Apps on Google Play

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/26

If you want to view a TreeMap of your Android device then DiskUsage – Android Apps on Google Play is a great choice.

Simple, easy to use, fast.

It showed me that my SD-Card suddenly was almost full because /sdcard/LOST.DIR contained a 2 gigabyte file full of garbage.

Waar mag je nou wel of geen 130 rijden?

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/01/26

Waar je nou wel en geen 130 mag rijden is voor velen een zoekplaatje, ook voor mij.

Zelfs op de weg is het vaak niet duidelijk met een oerwoud aan borden en onderborden.

Ook on-line is er eigenlijk niet heel veel nuttige informatie te vinden, onderstaand is wat ik heb gevonden.

Veel plezier ermee (:


  • in de randstad mag je vrijwel nergens 130, zeker niet overdag
  • buiten de randstad liggen de grootste stukken 130 in het noorden (kop van Noord-Holland; Flevoland, Friesland, Groningen, Drenthe, met uitzondering van een fiks deel A28)

En de links:

Helaas zijn de JPEG kaarten slecht, die hadden PNG moeten zijn, maar ja, ze zijn verminkt met JPEG artefacten want veel web editors hebben geen oog voor beeld kwaliteit.
