Altnernatives for Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast – Google Store

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/13

A long time ago, I wrote Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast – Google Store « The Wiert Corner – irregular stream of stuff

As a reminder for self, order when I’m back in the USA: Ethernet Adapter for Chromecast – Google Store.

In between, it has been available in many countries, but when writing this, it is not available in The Netherlands, Belgium or Germany any more:

Alternatives are for instance [Archive.isUGREEN Ethernet Adapter für Chromecast und TV: AmazonSmile: Computer & Zubehör, or fiddling with OTG splitter cables and an a USB ethernet adapter which I found via [WayBack] Google Chromecast – Google Cast – Deel 1 – Mediaspelers en HTPC’s – GoT especially[WayBack] Google Chromecast – Google Cast – Deel 1 – Mediaspelers en HTPC’s – GoT: search for “ethernet.

The cool thing: these solutions also work for things like Raspberry Pi Zero, Fire TV Stick, etc.

regex – How to write a search pattern to include a space in findstr? – Stack Overflow

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/13

TL;DR:

  1. If you use regular expressions (/R) with FINDSTR, then pass them as /C:"regular-expression-string"
  2. If you forget the /C: the string will be used as a normal search string
  3. If you forget the : after the /C you will get an informal error, but the search will continue giving you wrong results

Hiding your number when calling from an Android phone

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/12/13

Via [WayBack] This was well hidden outside the regular Anrdoid settings I was trying at first. You need to start with the stock Android phone app, then go to settings… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+.

The steps are in the images below, starting from the stock Android phone dialing app.

It helped solving this problem:

[WayBack] Twitter thread

@jpluimers: A friend of mine cannot receive anonymous calls: his #OnePlusOne on @KPNwebcare with latest Android available for it does not ring, not even in safe mode. But calls do appear in recent calls list. This used to work in the past months ago. Any tips?

@KPNwebcare: I suggest he try his SIM-card in a different phone to determine if the problem persists. This helps us figure out if the problem is related to the or our network. If the problem remains then I recommend that your friend contacts us directly!

@jpluimers: OK. I will assist him doing this. Thanks!

@jpluimers: Thanks for the offer. Enjoy your weekend. Somehow it’s the device. To be continued…

@jpluimers: After trying to reset many individual settings, the only thing that worked was a complete phone reset then restore apps from backup. Of course not all apps backup just as well, but that got us 90% with only 10% of manual configuration left. Phew (: And thanks for helping us out.
