Anyone who knows about http://sourceforge.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/HEAD/tree/branches/RADStudio_Rio ?

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/28

It look likes sourceforge.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/HEAD/tree/branches/RADStudio_Rio is gone (though docwiki has more than a couple 100 mentions of [Archive.is] “radstudiodemos” and [Archive.is] “RADStudio_Rio”), for instance here:

I have not seen an announcement of this branch disappearing, so I wonder what happened and why.

sourceforge.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/HEAD/tree/branches was a great resource, as it had a consistent history from Delphi XE through 10.2 Tokyo (apparently there used to be 10.3 Rio too) that made it very easy to see the differences in various versions, giving a great indication of new features and differences in products, often before the docwiki got updated to reflect them.

SVN not being centralised, now makes this chain break for Delphi 10.3 Rio, which is quite a pity.

If anyone has the complete SVN history including Delphi 10.3 RIO, please let me know: Delphi 10.3 Rio Update 1 now finally being out likely means many more people start using it as initial issues found in the public have been fleshed out.

It would have been so much more convenient to have for instance a git converted repository keeping all the history and including Delphi 10.3 Rio somewhere.

If anyone has that, I’d be interested in that too. One can dream, right?

Sidenote

I bumped into this via a link pointing to URLs having these fragments in them, which are now invalid:

This means I have to fix some 150 links later: [Archive.is] site:wiert.me “radstudiodemos” – Google Search.

It looks like radstudiodemos.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/radstudiodemos/trunk got replaced with sourceforge.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/HEAD/tree/trunk and https://svn.code.sf.net/p/radstudiodemos/code/trunk, which should give me a head-starting on how to fix the links.

Bye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/28

Interesting approach: saying good bye isn’t that hard if you do not share a lot things with other people through it.

[WayBackBye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa:

I spent this past weekend de-Google-ifying my life and, despite my expectations, it wasn’t too hard to do. I started by moving all of my websites off of Google App Engine and onto a dedicated box that I had already owned. That was straightforward enough. Next, I removed any Google Analytics snippets from each of them and replaced those with my own analytics server that I had built a while back (it doesn’t store any PII, only aggregate information (and very little of that, too)).
