winforms – Where is the Tab Order Assignment dialog in Visual Studio 2012+? – via: Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/27

Duh: same for VS2013

It is still available, you just need to add it back to the View menu. Tools + Customize, Commands tab, Menu bar = View. Select the menu item in Controls where you want to insert it, say the bottom one. Then Add Command, Category = View, Commands = Tab Order.

Building and running upc_keys.c on Mac OS X

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/27

Even after the SpeedTouch password algorithms were disclosed 2008, ISPs keep using weak algorithms to generate their default WPA/WPA2 passwords in their routers:

A short while ago, blasty published code to generate the WPA2 passwords for UPC routers. Even though Ziggo now owns UPC, a lot of  this UPC equipment is still in use. I guess it won’t be for long that similar code for Ziggo routers will be published too.

The code at https://haxx.in/upc_keys.c is easy to download, build and run on a Mac OS X machine even when you don’t have Xcode installed (use the “xcode-select –install” trick):

wget https://haxx.in/upc_keys.c
gcc -O2 -o upc_keys upc_keys.c -lcrypto
./upc_keys UPC0053284 5
./upc_keys UPC0053284 24

c# – How can I create a temp file with a specific extension with .net? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2016/01/27

You’d think this is a simple question.

Be amazed by the many ways leading into to creating a temporary file with a specific extension.

This list doesn’t even cover all of them:

  • Create a file name based on GetTempPath, a Guid and an extension.
  • Use the TempFileCollection from the Compiler in System.CodeDom.
  • Get a random file name, then change the extension. Loop until it is unique.
  • Use a timestamp to generate unique file names.

All via: c# – How can I create a temp file with a specific extension with .net? – Stack Overflow.

Which one would you choose?
