Windows Sandbox – Microsoft Tech Community – 301849

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

For my link archive, as I totally missed it when it was released: [WayBack] Windows Sandbox – Microsoft Tech Community – 301849:

  1. Install Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise, Insider build 18305 or newer
  2. Enable virtualization:
    • If you are using a physical machine, ensure virtualization capabilities are enabled in the BIOS.
    • If you are using a virtual machine, enable nested virtualization with this PowerShell cmdlet:
    • Set-VMProcessor -VMName <VMName> -ExposeVirtualizationExtensions $true
  3. Open Windows Features, and then select Windows Sandbox. Select OK to install Windows Sandbox. You might be asked to restart the computer.
  4. Optional Windows Features dlg.png
  5. Using the Start menu, find Windows Sandbox, run it and allow the elevation
  6. Copy an executable file from the host
  7. Paste the executable file in the window of Windows Sandbox (on the Windows desktop)
  8. Run the executable in the Windows Sandbox; if it is an installer go ahead and install it
  9. Run the application and use it as you normally do
  10. When you’re done experimenting, you can simply close the Windows Sandbox application. All sandbox content will be discarded and permanently deleted
  11. Confirm that the host does not have any of the modifications that you made in Windows Sandbox.

mkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost (Windows/Mac/Linux) — a short blog post about it, by FiloSottile

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

Cool: [WayBack] Filippo Valsorda on Twitter: “mkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost — a short blog post mkcert now that it’s almost done 🔒 “

Blog post: [WayBackmkcert: valid HTTPS certificates for localhost:

The web is moving to HTTPS, preventing network attackers from observing or injecting page contents. But HTTPS needs TLS certificates, and while deployment is increasingly a solved issue thanks to the ACME protocol and Let’s Encrypt, development still mostly ends up happening over HTTP because no one can get an…

Code: [WayBack] GitHub – FiloSottile/mkcert: A simple zero-config tool to make locally trusted development certificates with any names you’d like.

It is cross platform and works way better than good old Windows makecert (which is from the 2000’s era: [Archive.is] Public Key Infrastructure: Second European PKI Workshop: Research and … – David Chadwick, Greece) European PKI Workshop: Research and Applications (1st : 2004 : Samos Island – Google Books).

In Amsterdam zonder Ja-Ja sticker hoef je de @AxenderBV bezorger geen fooi te geven

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/12/21

In 2019 instrueerde [WayBack] Axender B.V. (@AxenderBV) | Twitter haar bezorgers om langs alle deuren te gaan, ook die in Amsterdam geen JA-JA sticker hebben.

Die bezorger hoef je dan dus geen fooi te geven, want je krijgt geen folders.

Axender bezorgt ook incidenteel de City krant: bij ons in Amsterdam 1 keer in 2018.
