Cool: [Wayback/Archive.is] eidam/cf-workers-status-page:

Monitor your websites, showcase status including daily history, and get Slack/Telegram/Discord notification whenever your website status changes. Using Cloudflare Workers, CRON Triggers, and KV storage

Will try this out in a while, hopefully before this actually reaches the front of the blog article queue (:

Missing a KB article? Try the Microsoft KB Archive – BetaArchive Wiki

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/21

Over the last years, Microsoft has been retiring a lot of KB articles that in some situations can be of great value, not just when using legacy systems: sometimes they are the only source of accurate information on current systems as well.

I was glad to find that many of the retired articles made it to the [Wayback/Archive.is] Microsoft KB Archive – BetaArchive Wiki.

From that page:

Microsoft KB Archive

This is a new part of the wiki – an archive of all Microsoft KB articles (currently with >210000 articles). And perhaps the only archive where you can help make it better and more complete!

See A guide to mass-adding files for a guide on how this was done. This could also be adapted for other situations as well.

Click here to view the forum announcement for this archive. We particularly thank 3155GGfd for allowing us to import his massive collection into the archive.

Important: The copyright requirements for this section are different from the rest of the wiki. Please read the wiki guidelines; this part of the wiki is NOT released under a free licence and reproduction is NOT allowed without prior permission from a moderator or administrator. The main reason is that these articles are technically owned by Microsoft, unlike the rest of the wiki (where the articles are by the individual contributors).

And from [Wayback/Archive.is] Introducing the Microsoft KB Archive – BetaArchive:

Sat Jul 18, 2020 8:25 pm

BetaArchive now has a new section – the Microsoft KB Archive. The aim of this section is to provide a database of old KB articles that Microsoft has since taken down. It’s available now at the wiki: Microsoft KB Archive.

There are currently more than 215000 KB articles in the wiki, covering all kinds of help articles from DOS to Excel 2000 to more, with some being over 32 years old! Nearly all inter-article links and many images have been preserved, so you can seamlessly jump to a KB article that is linked from another one, and images appear as expected. You can always use the wiki search interface to look for a specific KB article or content.

Converting inline svg xml to png

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/19

A while ago, I had a web page showing the logo as inline svg xml code.

It took a while to find a place to convert that on-line: [Wayback/Archive.is] inline svg xml to png – online html sandbox – InfoHeap (via [Wayback/Archive.is] Convert svg xml text to png image using canvas – InfoHeap):

The solution is a bit of JavaScript (quoted below) that you can run-online: modify the svg bit in it, then run it, scroll down in the result and verify if the canvas fits (when not: adapt the canvas side, then re-run).

The svg xml code needs to be all on one line, so remove any line breaks in it before running.

I have tested it in Chrome, but it should work in non-Chromium browsers like Firefox as well.

The inner workings of the JavaScript conversion code is explained in [Wayback/Archive.is] html – Convert embedded SVG to PNG in-place – Stack Overflow with more demo code at [Archive.is] Rasterizing In-Document SVG (thanks [Wayback] Phrogz!).

Some @MCH2022Camp badge updates I found on Twitter

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/07/19

For all attending [Wayback/Archive] May Contain Hackers 2022 , a few things to check out:

  • their blog contains new posts with exiting news: [Wayback/Archive] Weblog | May Contain Hackers 2022 – blog
  • Tweeps and tweep-groups are fiddling with the MCH2022 badge already resulting in cool things like:
    • The MCH2022 terrain as a gameboy map (which runs on the MCH2022 badge)
    • There is a batch housing you can 3D print
    • Thumb knobs for the MCH2022 badge to it is easier on your fingers (2 models)
    • More software to run on the MCH2022 badge (like a CTF game)
    • Doom running on the badge (that of course was just a matter of time)
    • After MCH2022 there are 3 more hackercamps in Europe

More below…
