Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/27

Since I tend to forget the exact statements for starting a fresh repository and push it to a git hoster like GitHub or GitLab: [WayBack] Git: Push a new or existing repo to Github · GitHub

Chrome 78 update at least to 78.0.3904.108 to access saved passwords

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/27

If you have Chrome 78 before version 78.0.3904.108, there is a high chance you cannot access (some of) your saved passwords.

This has been fixed in 78.0.3904.108: [WayBack] Chrome 78 update has removed all saved passwords for over 50 users – Google Chrome Enterprise Help

Google is aware of an issue causing saved passwords not to appear after upgrading to Chrome 78. Even though the passwords are not showing up in the UI, they haven’t been lost or deleted.

The fix is included in version 78.0.3904.108 which is now pushing at 25% for Mac/Win/Android and 100% for Linux (and will ramp over the next few days based on the field issues and feedback).

Delphi: IOTASourceEditor uses UTF8, so conversions are needed to/from regular strings

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/27

Some important points from [WayBackGo straight to JAIL! DO NOT Pass GO! DO NOT Collect £200 – Dave’s Development Blog.

The most important one is that the IOTASourceEditor (which is hardly documented in the docwiki) uses UTF8, so conversions are needed to/from regular strings.

The other is that by now any Unicode letter can be used as part of an Object Pascal identifiers so if you match, you need to take that into account.

Note that in practice using non-ASCII Unicode letters still fails with a lot of tooling (not just limited to Object Pascal), so be careful with those.

windows – How do I limit MS SQL Server memory usage? – Server Fault

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/26

Sometimes you need this so it easier to run other services on the same system: [WayBack] windows – How do I limit MS SQL Server memory usage? – Server Fault.

Thanks wfaulk.

From How to configure memory options using SQL Server Management Studio:

Use the two server memory options, min server memory and max server memory, to reconfigure the amount of memory (in megabytes) managed by the SQL Server Memory Manager for an instance of SQL Server.

  1. In Object Explorer, right-click a server and select Properties.
  2. Click the Memory node.
  3. Under Server Memory Options, enter the amount that you want for Minimum server memory and Maximum server memory.

You can also do it in T-SQL using the following commands (example):

exec sp_configure 'max server memory', 1024
reconfigure
