Firefox: waar gaan die RSS feeds naartoe?

V. Ik heb eindelijk de RSS feeds gevonden in Firefox, maar waar gaan die naartoe?

A. De RSS feeds kan je vinden bij de oranje knoppen RSS of XML in de webpagina’s die die knop aanbieden – en in Firefox staat er in de adresbalk een RSS icoon bij de websites die een feed aanbieden. Verder:

  1. Je kan een abonnement nemen via SUBSCRIBE NOW.
  2. Je kan kiezen waar je dat abonnement wil plaatsen – standaard wordt de Bookmarks toolbar voorgesteld.
  3. Via View, Toolbars kan je die Bookmark toolbar zichtbaar maken Als je geen menu ziet, druk op ALT.
  4. Klaar: nu heb je een knop met de laatste items van die website.

 

Cirkel rond getal

V. Is het mogelijk om in Word een cirkel te trekken rond een getal?

A. Ja. In Word 2010: Invoegen, Vormen, cirkel (of gelijk welke andere vorm). Teken die vorm en selecteer hem. Dan Vorm, Naar achteren, Achter tekst plaatsen.

Eén post verbergen voor zoekmachines

V. Kan ik één post of pagina van mijn WordPress sites verborgen houden voor zoekmachines?

A. Neen, niet echt. Je kan die post of pagina beschermen met een paswoord (Visibility: Password) of alleen zichtbaar maken voor leden (Visibility: Private) . Maar de Google Webmaster Tools laten je toe om aan te geven dat een element niet mag geïndexeerd worden.  Alleen: dat is voor Google, niet de andere zoekmachines.

XWiki 4.1.4 07 Sep 2012 20:20 Release Notes: This is probably the last bugfix release for the 4.1 series. It provides 30 bugfixes, mainly in the Extension Manager, including important fixes for extensions which provide components or script services (see XCOMMONS-231 and XCOMMONS-232). It also improves the large data migration introduced in 4.0, in particular to support MS-SQL, and fixes an important issue which caused the migration of annotations to be unintentionally skipped http://freecode.com/projects/xwiki/releases/348002

Blue Mind 1.0 RC 1 10 Sep 2012 22:31 Release Notes: All expected features are in. This release adds full meeting handling on all devices (Smartphones, Outlook, Thunderbird, and Web). Calendar can display declined events and event location in the popup. Auto-complete now hides empty groups. Webmail has been updated to roundcube 0.8 with its own ICS plugin. The contact app has been completed with an improved UI, distribution list management (with sync with Outlook and Thunderbird lists), and offline search. Many other enhancements and fixes were made http://freecode.com/projects/blue-mind/releases/348064

Cerb 6.1.2 17 Sep 2012 21:03 Release Notes: This maintenance update includes 15 fixes and usability enhancements. A new “Sender is worker” condition is available to Virtual Attendants on mail filtering behavior. A minor CSS issue in Chrome which caused the overlay for disabled plugins to be positioned improperly has been fixed. Message worklists may now be filtered, quick searched, and subtotaled by ticket status. Clicking the “(none)” owner subtotal in a ticket worklist will no longer display an error. This release fixes an issue which caused knowledgebase articles to intermittently not save due to latency (mainly in Chrome). Subtotals now work for URL and number fields http://news.freecode.com/projects/cerberushelpdesk/releases/348259

TOMUSS 5.0.3 18 Sep 2012 21:42 Release Notes: The HTTP request handling has been rewritten in order to not freeze the server when a browser opens a connection without sending the request. If a browser uses a different IP address for each request, TOMUSS will reject it. It is now possible to dynamically import a column from one table into another http://freecode.com/projects/tomuss/releases/348286

OpenDocMan 1.2.6.2 18 Sep 2012 08:08 Release Notes: A small security fix, a new file access_log feature, new translations, and various bugfixes. This release contains database changes. http://freecode.com/projects/opendocman/releases/348269

Interessante (updates van) openbron .NET en andere projecten in Freecode:

MUSCLE (Multi User Server Client Linking Environment) is an N-way messaging server and networking API. It includes client-side networking APIs for various languages, including C, C++, C#, Delphi, Java, and Python. MUSCLE lets programs communicate over a network via streams of serialized Message objects. The included server program (“muscled”) lets its clients message each other and store information in its server-side hierarchical database. The database supports flexible queries via hierarchical wildcarding, and “live” updates via a subscription mechanism. http://freecode.com/projects/muscle 5.81 14 Sep 2012 00:49 Release Notes: This is a minor release. The main change is that the ZlibUtilityFunctions implementation now uses ThreadLocalStorage to store its internal state, rather than sharing ZLibCodec objects across threads. This has the advantages of allowing greater parallelism and avoiding any chance of deadlocks http://freecode.com/projects/muscle/releases/348165

SoaBox SoaBox lets you create a virtual version of your SOA environment. http://freecode.com/projects/soabox 1.1.6.GA 17 Sep 2012 20:59 Release Notes: This is a production-ready release. http://freecode.com/projects/soabox/releases/348249

Guacamole 0.6.3 19 Sep 2012 22:30 Release Notes: A security vulnerability in libguac has been fixed. The Debian packaging of guacd has been updated to run guacd as a reduced-privilege user by default. http://freecode.com/projects/guacamole/releases/348292

Patch voor veiligheidslek in Internet Explorer

Microsoft bracht een patch uit voor het recent ontdekte veiligheidslek in IE. Je vindt die patch op

MS12-063: Cumulative Security Update for Internet Explorer: September 21, 2012
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2744842

maar de patch wordt ook geïnstalleerd door Windows Update. Meer informatie vind je verder in

IE 9.0.10 Available via Windows Update http://blogs.msdn.com/b/ie/archive/2012/09/21/ie-9-0-10-available-via-windows-update.aspx

Veiligheidslek in Internet Explorer: opvolging

Bezorgd over al die geruchten die de ronde doen? Lees dan:

Microsoft Security Advisory: Vulnerability in Internet Explorer could allow remote code execution http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2757760/

Internet Explorer Fix it available now; Security Update scheduled for Friday http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/archive/2012/09/19/internet-explorer-fix-it-available-now-security-update-scheduled-for-friday.aspx

Je kan die patch (eerste referentie) installeren als je acuut ongerust bent, maar als je veilig surft, is het waarschijnlijk voldoende de tweede referentie even te bekijken, en morgen Windows Update te bezoeken.

Veiligheidslek in Internet Explorer?

V. Ik zie allerlei verontrustende berichten over veiligheidslekken in Internet Explorer. Wat is dat allemaal?

A. Eerst en vooral: geen paniek. Lees dit arikel:

Additional information about Internet Explorer and Security Advisory 2757760 http://blogs.technet.com/b/msrc/archive/2012/09/18/additional-information-about-internet-explorer-and-security-advisory-2757760.aspx

en pas de patch toe die beschreven is.

Verder: het is normaal dat er in softwarepakketten af en toe veiligheidsproblemen ontdekt worden. Wat een browser betreft, zijn er twee dingen die -jij- als gebruiker kan doen, en waarvoor jij 100% verantwoordelijk bent:

  • Wees veilig bij het surfen (geen gevaarlijke websites bezoeken, adequaat reageren bij dreigend gevaar [=verlaten met ALT+F4]) en het installeren van software (geen torrent of peer-to-peer, geen valse antivirus, geen ‘versnellings-‘ of ‘opruim’software en wat mij betreft ab-so-luut geen Norton)
  • Update je software regelmatig

PDF opsplitsen op Mac

V. Kan ik uit een PDF bestand delen (pagina’s) halen? Ik werk op Mac.

A. Ik werkte met PDF splitter en merger (UPDATE hier) om PDFs op te splitsen in aparte pagina’s.

Voor Mac is het natuurlijk net wat anders. Blijkbaar kan http://www.verypdf.com/app/pdf-splitter-mac/index.html het (maar die is betalend). verder deze twee freeware in Java die in principe ook op Mac moeten werken:

Diagnil is a GUI application to help solvers of diagramless crossword puzzles.
