The [WayBack] and [] links in my blog and G+ stream

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/12/13

Answering a good question on [WayBack] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers – Google+:


Kevin Powick: Why do so many of your posts have [WayBack] embedded in the text? I’ve never been able to figure it out.


On the blog they point to WayBack URLs of the link that succeeds it because I found out that web pages nowadays last a lot shorter than they used to be so link-rot has increased big time.

I still need to write a bookmarklet that automates that process for me: verify if a page is in WayBack, if not: try to store it, if it fails, store it in, then generate the full HTML for me to put in the blog.

#Tech45 – Nederlandstalige tech-podcast

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/03/05

Al een jaar of wat volg ik de Nederlandstalige #Tech45 podcast van

Tech45 is een wekelijkse technologiepodcast. In minstens 45 minuten loodst een panel je door het interessantste technieuws van de voorbije week.

Ze hebben altijd een leuke titel zoals bijvoorbeeld de eerste van 2016: [WayBackTech45 #322: Ik heb eigenlijk alleen maar slechte voornemens

Wees niet verbaast als het ineens 60 of 80 minuten duurt en vol humor zit. Meestal luister ik ook na afloop en soms meerdere episodes achter elkaar.

Misschien is de nieuwe layout al af, zo niet dan staat het experiment op [WayBack

New feeds for Dilbert, Penny Arcade, W.T. Duck

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/08/09

Now that Yahoo Pipes is stopping, Chris Bernard rewrote his Dilbert/Penny Arcade/W.T.Duck feeds and published source on GitHub:


If you use Feedly, and some (or all) pictures don’t show up for the Dilbert feed, then that is because of Feedly caching content. Use a parameterised URL fixes this:

How to Prevent a specific Blogger Blog from Redirecting to Country Domains

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/02/09

The article How to Prevent your Blogger Blog from Redirecting to Country Domains describes to prevent the country redirect from within a blog itself.

But what about outside readers that want to see a specific blog on the .com link?

One of the reasons they want to do this is that Google does not index the country redirected sites, they only index the com site.

I had this while reading It kept redirecting to (as I’m based in Amsterdam; in Germany for instance it would redirect to

But a search would return nothing whereas would return the full index for the blog.

The trick is to browse the .com version of the blog with NCR once:

If you do that, Google forces a no-country redirect (just like you can do with browse to, and it remembers that choice too.

Note that BlogSpot has not done this country redirect for ever.
