Embarcadero community RSS links

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/28

As G+ refused to put this in a comment at [WayBack] Does anybody know whether the Embarcadero blogs have got individual RSS feeds? And what’s the URL of the RSS feed for all blogs? … – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+:

No RSS logo is visible for me on the blog pages, but inspecting the source reveals the 404 link below; deducting from that I got 200 results:

What doesn’t work for RSS (CC +Marco Cantù) as you get 404:

  • events
  • individual questions
  • individual blog posts

Failure examples:

No it was not possible to install PowerShell 3 on a Windows Server 2003 or 2003 R2? – Super User

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/28

Since it was not possible to install PowerShell 3 on ancient Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2003 R2 machines, I opted for this workaround during the time they were being retired:

I’ve investigating how much work it will be to migrate the machine, as opposed to adapting the scripts with Poshcode/Jaykul modules (of which many have external dependencies that I’d need to check first). It’s about the same order of magnitude, so I’ll be migrating the machine earlier. In the mean time, a different machine will run the scripts and access the required data over a network share.

For my link archive:

If your mail auto-responder directs to a new email address, don’t have the new one also auto-respond

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/27

Base on the below (Dutch) tweet where an organisation had an auto-responder like this:

Thanks for your message. As of 20150701, we have a new email address: foo@example.org.

Did you use any of our old email addresses, then we forwarded it to the new one.

You will get a response to your e-mail within 5 working days.

Any mail to foo@example.org would get the same auto-response.

They should just leave out the first 2 sentences.

IRC Private Messages – /msg, /invite, /query, Internet Relay Chat

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/08/27

I’m from the BITNET RELAY era, so every now and then I need to get used to how things are done on IRC:

[WayBack] IRC Private Messages – /msg, /invite, /query, Internet Relay Chat

Summarised in my own words:

  • /msg nick single private message
  • /query nick private channel
