Need to check out which weather widgets I can get working for a really long period of time with a refresh every minute.

Need to check out which weather widgets I can get working for a really long period of time with a refresh every minute. [WayBackJeroen Pluimers on Twitter: “@Weerplaza ik heb via de widgets op https://t.co/DvF9tucAi9 een pagina voor mijn verstandelijk beperkte broer gemaakt op https://t.co/se9wAjJhaU Na maanden OK, gaan helaas de widgets van WeerPlaza daar niet meer goed. Komt het omdat de page-refresh (1x per minuut) te hoog is?… https://t.co/NX9XTj04Gq”

These will help me fix that:

PlasticSCM: seriously? Comment size too long (which means your checkin message is too long), and why can’t I request a code review?

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/13

Good job PlasticSCM! Imposing limits on what you can write. Not!

It is not actually the comment size, but the commit message length (naming things consistently is hard).

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Comment size is too long. Its current length is 2397, whereas the maximum allowed length is 1000
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

This after I had a big fight where the PlasticSCM “Undo Unchanged” action is unreliable: after that, if you refresh, then diff some of the files they show as “idental”, nor nothing at all happens (Beyond Compare is if big help showing “files are binary the same”).

After the commit (which is actually called “Checkin” in the UI button, so far for naming things consistently), I cannot even request for a code review:

Finally I need to find out the cause of the below message when I click on “Checkin” (i.e. not Checkout):

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Can't perform a checkout in an edited xlink.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

How I made my own VPN server in 15 minutes | TechCrunch

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/13

People are (rightfully) freaking out about their privacy as the Senate voted to let internet providers share your private data with advertisers. While it’s important to protect your privacy,…

Interesting: easy setup allows for creating disposable VPN servers.
