Yahoo Pipes Blog – Pipes End-of-life Announcement

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/06/05

Too bad. It was fun while it lasted: Yahoo Pipes Blog – Pipes End-of-life Announcement (thanks to Dennis for reporting this).

Which means that in a few months time, this pipe will be gone: Delphi Pipe – Delphi related RSS feed running on Yahoo Pipes – via twm’s blog « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff.

There is an alternative:

That redirects to which works fine from home, but at the client for I the McAfee gateway currently cannot handshake to it:


Reason: error:14094410:SSL routines:SSL3_READ_BYTES:sslv3 alert handshake failure

Anyone who knows what that is?

When Windows 8 will not boot: the Automatic Repair disaster | Gadget Writing

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/06/05

The Automatic Repair Wizard is very limited and – worse – sometimes plain wrong.

So, this important tip from Tim Anderson can be a real life saver:

if this happens to you, I recommend looking at the logs. It is the only way to get real information about what it going wrong. In some cases you may need to boot into the recovery console from installation media, but if your hard drive is working at all, it should be possible to view those files.

I had the same happening with Windows 81., and I asseume other Windows versions react the same way.
