[WayBack] Google’s AI can create better machine-learning code than the researchers who made it:

UPS PIco HV3.0 documentation not on github: “03_0x38_W_UPS PIco HV3.0.pdf”

So I tried searching for them: https://www.google.com/search?q=UPS+PIco+HV3.0+A+Stack+450+Plus+installation+instructions which turned mostly github based URLs.

Luckily, they responded quickly to my tweet So I got my “UPS PIco HV3.0 A Stack 450 Plus” @ModMyPi but no assembly instructions. Where do all the non-soldered parts go when using RPi3? and a quick respons thread revealing I needed 03_0x38_W_UPS PIco HV3.0.pdf which – TADAAAA – is on Google drive and on the forums at [WayBackUPS PIco Firmware Update & Troubleshooting : Technical Support

TEncryptedIniFile: easy to use class for handling app settings with encryption in Delphi – TMS Software Blog

[WayBackTMS Software | Blog | TEncryptedIniFile: easy to use class for handling app settings with encryption

via: [WayBackA new blog has been posted:TEncryptedIniFile: easy to use class for handling app settings with encryption – Michael Thuma – Google+

I wonder how that works with encryption algorithms based on thin Delphi wrappers around proven open source encryption libraries.

PS: Note the G+ link died. Not sure why, but that’s why I archived the original as a WayBack link when writing this post.
