When +Google Nederland maps only fills one or part of the map tiles…

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/18

I still have to do this every few weeks on all my desktop machines: [WayBack] When +Google Nederland maps only fills none or part of the map tiles… – Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+

When +Google Nederland maps only fills none or part of the map tiles at https://maps.google.nl, but https://maps.google.com works fine, then remove any gsScrollPos cookies from www.google.nl.

I need to do this every couple of days to keep maps.google.nl working.

Later I also found it can happen for YouTube, then did more digging for gsScrollPos and found a better workaround: [WayBackAwesome Cookie Manager where you can just delete the gsScrollPos cookies from all sites in one go.

Even later I found out that this can be one of the causes for the WayBack machine giving an error 400 when archiving. A more common reason however is that many archived web-pages try to create cookies in the web.archive.com subdomain resulting in the same problem.

The cause seems to be the Great Suspender plugin which should be fixed by now, but might not automatically update to the latest version. See:

Pending a new Great Suspender release, below is a quick way to manually remove them if you are into SQL scripting for sqlite. It basically comes down to executing the below statement when Chrome is closed:

delete from cookies where name like 'gsScrollPos-%'

When your triple/quad-play providers refuse to give your VoIP SIP credentials, but allows access to your modem: use Wireshark on the LAN side

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/12

Every now and then I hear about providers that refuse to hand over the VoIP SIP credentials.

If you do have access to your modem, you can Wireshark the WAN side, then reset the modem and capture traffic until it has obtained the VoIP information:

Veel mensen op het forum van Telfort vragen zich af of ze de SIP gegevens kunnen krijgen voor telefonie zodat men de ExperiaBox niet hoeven te gebruiken. Gezien dat de Telfort Support deze gegevens…

Research list: machine sometimes not visible on LAN

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/04/08

When one of the machine isn’t active for a while it seems to disappear. Even when it’s active some of the machines have intermittent errors pinging it as like every 10-30 seconds one of these ping results appear:

92 bytes from tl-er5120 (192.168.71.1): Redirect Host(New addr: 192.168.71.193)
Vr HL TOS  Len   ID Flg  off TTL Pro  cks      Src      Dst
 4  5  00 0054 05de   0 0000  40  01 644d 192.168.71.108  192.168.71.193

Sometimes even a simple

Request timeout for icmp_seq 6900

So I need to dig into  ICMP “Redirect Host” .

It might be a simple ARP thing like mac mini – Why the different results for ping? Or why is the Time Capsule getting involved? – Ask Different [WayBack] but like usual stuff I bump into is of a more complex kind so I’ve archived at least these:

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:

The tracker is well under way: [WayBack] Googleplus tracker Dashboard. History: archive.is 1; archive.is 2

Viewing is simple, but what about saving?
