PoE to ethernet + micro USB converters

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/06

The first is 100mbit, some do not get it to work with Raspberry Pi 3B+, but others do get it to work, even at 1Gbit:

The second is 1Gbit, about 40% more expensive, but just works:

Via: [WayBack] Thread by @Nick_Craver: “Shout out to @mstum for reminding me 1Gb PoE USB splitters are completely viable for Raspberry Pis – now running a fi PoE switches and using just 1 outlet on the UPS: … Less wiring and if the network’s […]”

OpenCandy – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/06

Hmm, one of my machines contained OpenCandy – Wikipedia as found by Malwarebytes (software) – Wikipedia:

Tracking back the installation, revealed it came with ImgBurn, which is now on my black-list.

In my case this was how to remove it:

rd /s /q %AppData%\OpenCandy

This is not universal; you might need to take additional measures like in [WayBack] How to Remove PUP.Optional.OpenCandy (Removal Guide).

I use this batch-file to get the most recent Malwarebytes and Chameleon:


:: redirects to something like wget
wget --content-disposition
:: redirects to something like wget
wget --content-disposition

If you do not have wget on your system, then try this PowerShell alternative (which does not show progress) via [WayBack] Windows batch file file download from a URL – Stack Overflow

:: in case you do not have wget:
powershell -Command "(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('', 'mb3.exe')"
powershell -Command "(New-Object Net.WebClient).DownloadFile('', 'chameleon.exe')"
:: note these do not show progress!

het verbindingsboogje en de punt achter de noot – YouTube

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/06

Omdat ik laatst iemand hielp met het lezen van noten en het bepalen van lengte, wat linkjes en een video.

Mijn eigen ezelsbruggetje is altijd een patroon van 2/# wat 3/# wordt:

  1. hele noot (4/4 of 2/2) wordt 3/2 of 6/4
  2. halve noot (2/4 of 1/2) wordt 3/4
  3. kwart noot (1/4 of 2/8) wordt 3/8
  4. achtste noot (1/8 of 2/16) wordt 3/16
  5. zestiende noot (1/16 of 2/32) wordt 3/32

Ooit maak ik daar een mooi plaatje van, als ik een on-line plek heb gevonden waar ik noten kan schrijven zonder te hoeven inloggen. Dit hielp niet echt: [WayBack] Best music notation software: online, offline, apps and everything else – Creative Music Education of [] What is the best free online music notation software? – Quora

De linkjes
