How I use Linux to write software for multiple target platforms using Wine, Delphi 7, Lazarus and Delphi Berlin

How I use Linux to write software for multiple target platforms – Kris Kamil Jacewicz – Google+

WINE has come a long way. Many things do not have a native look and feel, but so do many Delphi FMX or Lazarus LCL applications.

In fact I use quite a few tools (including Mikrotik WinBox) through Wine on Mac OS and it runs a lot more stable than quite a few of the FMX applications I’ve tried and ditched.

So for business applications not requiring a platform specific look and feel this indeed is quite acceptable direction to follow.

How does one configure Notepad++ to use spaces instead of tabs? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/27

The StackOverflow screenshot it out-dated so a new one is below.

  1. In the Settings menu, choose Preferences...
  2. In the Preferences dialog, choose Language
  3. Ensure the (default empty) Replace by space checkbox is checked
  4. Optionally change the Tab size from 4 to another suitable value

I prefer these settings:

Mikrotik – viewing when users logged in/out (on/off) when logging is high-volume

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/09/27

When logging on a Mikrotik is high-volume, then you need to have either:

  • separate logging actions (they end up in logging buffers each having the same name as the action) and logging rules for specific information that you want to retain
  • log to file in stead of memory

Since my devices have plenty memory, I made a separate accountAction with a rule sending the topic account to accountAction which I then can query like either of these:

/log print detail where message~"logged"

/log print detail where message~"logged" && buffer=accountAction

Here is the /system logging export condensed result:

/system logging action add name=accountAction target=memory
/system logging add action=accountAction topics=account
