email file decoding: Encode/Decode Quoted Printable – Webatic

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/26

For my link archive: [WayBack] Encode/Decode Quoted Printable – Webatic.

It did a splendid job at decoding email files in MIME format Quoted-printable.

Chocolatey: installing Forticlient

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/26

I needed Forticlient on a machine one day, so this is how to install the most recent Forticlient 6 using chocolatey:

choco install --yes forticlient --source

This ensures you can automatically update from Chocolatey instead of manually from the Forticlient GUI.

The update command is slightly different as a choco update will complain it cannot find the source for forticlient; you need this in stead:

choco update forticlient --source

Based on [WayBack] public-choco – forticlient | MyGet.

Interactive tool to record a web-site, then archive it as WARC: GitHub – webrecorder/webrecorder-user-guide: webrecorder user guide and glossary

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/26

Learned about this in the fall of G+: [WayBack] GitHub – webrecorder/webrecorder-user-guide: webrecorder user guide and glossary

Back then, fully automated tools were easier.

So it is on my list of things to try one day for smaller projects.

From the glossary:

Quick Start

  1. Enter a URL in the box in the center of the screen labeled ‘URL to capture’.
  2. Press the ‘start’ button (look down and to the right of the box where you entered the URL).
  3. Interact with the web page that loads so Webrecorder can capture the content displayed on this page. To collect audio or video from a page be sure to press ‘play’ so the file will load into the browser.
  4. Continue to visit and browse the pages you would like to capture. Each page you view will be included in your capture session. Note: you will be capturing the contents of each page you visit but will not automatically obtain pages that are linked to on the pages you collect (hyperlinks).
  5. To end your capture session hover over the ‘Capture’ button in the upper left corner of the screen so it changes to read ‘Stop’ then click that button.
  6. Your capture will then be browsable. Note: the capture will not ‘replay’ like a linear recording but instead be an interactive copy of the pages you have collected.
  7. If you are a logged-in user, this session will be saved to your account automatically. If you are not logged in an account, you can sign up for an account or log in to your existing account to save the collection after you create it. If you do not log in you can still download your collection for a limited time (approximately 90 minutes from when you stop your recording session).
