Signing your Delphi executables with a digital certificate.

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/25

Using Delphi build-events (see my post Delphi prebuild/prelink/postbuild events), you can automate the process of signing your Delphi executables with a digital certificate.

Below the steps for signing Windows executables.


  1. You have your digital certificate in a PFX file.
    (for testing you can use a self-signed certificate, for the real world you want a certificate leads to a CA).
  2. You have the Windows SDK installed that provides SignTool.
    (in this case, I presume a Windows 7 or 8 x64 machine with the Windows Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows 8 installed. If not, you have to change the path in the various statements, for instance when using the Windows SDK: Download the Windows SDK for Windows 7 and More | MSDN.)

Instantly save a web-page to the Wayback Machine (Internet Archive:

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/24

Saving a web page for posterity is really easy: just prepend in front of the URL in your browser, then open the page.

The Wayback Machine (Internet Aarchive) wil instantly archive it.

See this great answer by Jeff Atwood quite a while ago:

One thing that the ineffable Jason Scott just pointed out to me on Twitter:

if you give the url of the page to and wait five minutes, it will archive that page. How about that?

Also you can enter to have it happen without visiting the page.

So if you want to ensure that a popular soon-to-be or may-possibly-be deleted question gets archived by the Internet Archive, manually feed them to the URL above.

I suppose for already deleted questions, we could also undelete, wait 5 minutes, let it archive, then re-delete.

[NL] Full-page kaart van Parkeren Amsterdam – Gemeente Amsterdam

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/11/23

Helaas bevat de web-pagina Parkeren Amsterdam – Gemeente Amsterdam maar een heel klein kaartje.

Een beetje door de HTML heen bladeren lijdt tot een full-page kaart met parkeertarieven op
