Need to check out which weather widgets I can get working for a really long period of time with a refresh every minute.

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/13

Need to check out which weather widgets I can get working for a really long period of time with a refresh every minute. [WayBackJeroen Pluimers on Twitter: “@Weerplaza ik heb via de widgets op https://t.co/DvF9tucAi9 een pagina voor mijn verstandelijk beperkte broer gemaakt op https://t.co/se9wAjJhaU Na maanden OK, gaan helaas de widgets van WeerPlaza daar niet meer goed. Komt het omdat de page-refresh (1x per minuut) te hoog is?… https://t.co/NX9XTj04Gq”

These will help me fix that:

PlasticSCM: seriously? Comment size too long (which means your checkin message is too long), and why can’t I request a code review?

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/13

Good job PlasticSCM! Imposing limits on what you can write. Not!

It is not actually the comment size, but the commit message length (naming things consistently is hard).

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Comment size is too long. Its current length is 2397, whereas the maximum allowed length is 1000
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

This after I had a big fight where the PlasticSCM “Undo Unchanged” action is unreliable: after that, if you refresh, then diff some of the files they show as “idental”, nor nothing at all happens (Beyond Compare is if big help showing “files are binary the same”).

After the commit (which is actually called “Checkin” in the UI button, so far for naming things consistently), I cannot even request for a code review:

Finally I need to find out the cause of the below message when I click on “Checkin” (i.e. not Checkout):

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Can't perform a checkout in an edited xlink.
---------------------------
OK
---------------------------

CodeRage 8 replays: REST stuff

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/12

It seems I forgot to schedule this post, as it was still in the drafts.. So here it is for historic purposes. Likely a few links have died by now.

Last year I could not make it to CodeRage 8 as I was prepping for EKON 17 and ITDevCon 2013.

But there were some nice presentations, some of which I really wanted to see again.

So I was glad to have found the CodeRage 8 Replayshttp://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLwUPJvR9mZHiaYvH9Xr7WuFCVYugC4d0w.

Especially for these sessions as REST support is an under-marketed aspect of Delphi XE5:

And a few others as well:

Delphi TList.Grow and TStringList.Grow perform differently

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/07/12

Just as a reminder to self: the non-generic TStringList and TList grow way less aggressive than the generic TList:

  • TList.Grow and TStringList.Grow:
    • 4, 8, 12, 28, 44, 60, 76, 95, 118, 147, 183, 228, 285, 356, 445, 556, 695, 868, 1085
  • Generic TList growth via TListHelper.InternalGrow:
    • 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024
