Abel Wang, a true legend, is gone.

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/07/30

Hopefully my response to his spouse was appropriate enough:

Thanks for this tribute. It’s amazing, lovely, wonderful, all at the same time.

Abel is one of the persons that I would have loved to meet in real life.

I’m forever grateful that Scott Hanselman got me into touch with Abel Wang. Abel informed and motivated me. After that we stayed in touch every now and then about being ill and how to deal with that.

I had to contemplate for a while as this hit me harder than I thought, especially given the “always positive Abel” he is in my – and many others’ – minds.

So to all his close ones: remember the positivity and try to be like that. Abel expects that from us.

Glad I could send him some good thoughts last week, and miss him already.

Check if this still happens: some Twitter content in the WayBack machine gets a slash in the URL removed during rendering on Chrome

From my research list; check if this still happens: [WayBack] Saving Twitter content in the WayBack archive: the fully loaded page has a wrong trailing URL (missing the second slash before the authority) · GitHub

  1. Visited
  2. Saved it using

  4. Observed the trailing part is not a valid URL any more https:/ it is missing the second slash before the authority (see

This might be a thing:


  • I have only tested this with my Chrome configurations on various machines (both regular and anonymous tabs) over at least a year; I need to figure out what happens when using different browsers.
  • It does not always happen.

Het hopelijk tijdelijke afscheid door Haagse Insider🕵🏻‍♂️ (@HaagseInsider) | Twitter

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/05/13

Gisteren was er een (hopelijk tijdelijk) afscheid door [] Haagse Insider🕵🏻‍♂️ (@HaagseInsider) | Twitter.

De indrukwekkende draad is helaas niet beschikbaar op, maar wel beschikbaar op het web archief.

Sowieso wens ik meer rust en afstand voor HaagseInsider. Daarnaast duim ik dat het een weerzien wordt.
