Illustrations for Bowel resection for colorectal cancer

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/24

I finally found some great illustrations having to do with my lower anterior resection.

They are from [Wayback/Archive] (Bowel resection for colorectal cancer)

The most important for me is this one (as I have end-to-side where “end” is on the very tiny bit of rectum left and “side” is on the descending colon):

CyberChef: The Cyber Swiss Army Knife – a web app for encryption, encoding, compression and data analysis.

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/23

[Wayback/] CyberChef:

a simple, intuitive web app for carrying out all manner of “cyber” operations within a web browser. These operations include simple encoding like XOR or Base64, more complex encryption like AES, DES and Blowfish, creating binary and hexdumps, compression and decompression of data, calculating hashes and checksums, IPv6 and X.509 parsing, changing character encodings, and much more.

The [Wayback/] Solve Crypto with Force! needs to run without most script blockers, so best run it in an anonymous/private browser window.

Source code for SCWF is at [Wayback/] DaWouw/SCWF: CTF tool for identifying, brute forcing and decoding encryption schemes in an automated way.

To Favor Microsoft VS Code, Microsoft’s GitHub is Killing GitHub’s Atom Editor – time to prepare switching to another open source editor with a rich ecosystem in less than half a year

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/21

If you are still on Atom, try to see if other cross platform open source editors suit your needs.

The official announcement is at [Wayback/Archive] Sunsetting Atom | The GitHub Blog.

Various sites reported it in different phrasings:

Interactive @waybackmachine achievement unlocked while manually archiving 4 pages.: HTTP 429 Too Many Requests

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/06/20

[Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Interactive @waybackmachine achievement unlocked while manually archiving 4 pages.
