GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/18

Soon this is a thing of the past, but for just a few more days, you can help: Archiving Google+.

Either run this project: [WayBack] GitHub – ArchiveTeam/googleplus-grab: Archiving Google+.

Or even better: run the appliance, and help the WayBack machine with any archiving projects setup by the virtual appliance: the [WayBack] ArchiveTeam Warrior – Archiveteam.

See some of their other pages for more background information:

You can donate both to the archive team, and the internet archive:

Run cmd as elevated user (via: windows – How to run batch file command with elevated permissions? – Super User)

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/13

Based on [WayBack] windows – How to run batch file command with elevated permissions? – Super User:

powershell -command "Start-Process cmd.exe -Verb runas"

This works better than "runas /user:administrator cmd.exe" as that forces to use the specific Administrator account, whereas the PowerShell way allows you to specify the actual account during elevation.

ESXi 6.5: change the host name in the “new” vSphere HTML5 Web Client, or using DHCP option 12

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/03/06

With the removal of the C# based Windows vSphere Client in ESXi 6.5, the vSphere HTML5 Web Client is the way to go.

It doesn’t cover all functionality yet, and some functionality is in different places in the UI, so below the steps to change the hostname.

Since I prefer a central location of name and address management, I’ve also documented on how to do this with DHCP option 12.

Oh: I’m not alone in finding the changed place

Before I begin, some background reading on DHCP Options as I plan to do more with that in the future:
