Fonera Simpl Wireless Settings : Fon Support

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/21

Somehow my Fonera insisted that WiFi channel 2 was a good choice.

It isn’t so I forced it to be on one of the good 1/6/11 channel choices.

This links describes where those settings are: Fonera Simpl Wireless Settings : Fon Support.

Today I learned… :) I didn’t know about this syntax for properties… (via: Roman Yankovsky – Google+)

Interesting: Roman Yankovsky just wrote about a property syntax that I didn’t know about either:

Today I learned… :)

I didn’t know about this syntax for properties:

FStrings: array [0..1] of string;
property String0: string read FStrings[0] write FStrings[0];
property String1: string read FStrings[1] write FStrings[1];

Now I hope someone finds out in which Delphi version this syntax was introduced.

Chrome’s Click to play feature can avoid “Chrome wakes me up in the middle of the night, with monsters.”

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/04/21

A while ago I came across this very neat bug report:

Issue 224182 – chromium – Chrome wakes me up in the middle of the night, with monsters. – An open-source project to help move the web forward. – Google Project Hosting.

It isn’t so much a bug report, but a big annoyance with many browsers and web-sites: they auto-start playing video or audio (or other “active” content) as soon as the page loads, even in a background window.

The Chrome’s Click to play feature can help avoid this: you can configure this to the individual site and plugin level to select which ones to auto-play or block.

It increases your security, speeds up browser load times at the cost of a click here and there to enable a sites active content (on some sites: a lot of clicks, but alas: they should redesign to be less dependent on active content).
