KISS: stickers to protect your webcam from being spied (Dutch: Bescherm je laptop met een principiële sticker « Bits of Freedom)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/27

Didn’t notice they published these stickers while I was on holiday earier this year: Bescherm je laptop met een principiële sticker « Bits of Freedom.

There must be stickers like that in other languages as well, just did not yet search for them (:

.NET 4.5 versus 4.0 and C# 5 versus C# 4, or the funny way how StackOverflow closes good answers

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/27

I’m more and more amazed (actually I’m not, this is how life on forum-like communities when moderatorss take over) about which StackOverflow questsions get closed, and which ones stay alive.

It seems the best way is to ask longer questions way beyond what most moderatorss can grasp.


Still open:

A great point in the comments of the first question is that

you can technically can write .NET 4.0 / C# 4 applications on a .NET 4.5 / C#5 equiped machine and deploy them on machines that only have .NET 4.0 and C# support.

Don’t. I learned that in the .NET 3.0/3.5 and C# 3.0/2.0 era that combining is bad as the version matrix allows for subtle combinations that are hard to test.

.NET 3.0 with C# 2.0 applications written on a system that had .NET 3.5 and C# 3.0 installed would occasionally fail on systems that only had .NET 3.0 and C# 2.0 installed.

Very interesting: Kristian Köhntopp – Google+ – Eine Anleitung für Exim-Benutzer ….

Will try that when I build my next Linux based mail server.

Edit: Kristian Köhntopp – Google+ – Tagged Mail bei der Arbeit.

PowerShell – Special Characters And Tokens (via: Welcome to Neolisk’s Tech Blog)

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/02/27

This and next week, a few PowerShell posts appear on my blog.

Victor Zakharov, also known as Neolisk collected all the Special Characters and Tokens used in PowerShell on one page (they are scattered around the PowerShell documentation if documented at all).

The page is so immensely useful when learning PowerShell that I’m really glad I found it.

It is even better than Less Than Dot – Blog – A Cheat Sheet for All the *{_(%#$] PowerShell Punctuation.
