In Holland Staat Een Huis

Een jaar of 5 geleden kwam ik het boek In Holland Staat Een Huis van J.C. Alders tegen.

Dit vond ik zó'n leuk boek, dat ik in 2012 volledig heb ingescand.

Ik zag dat ik het plan had dit boek destijds op mijn website te plaatsen, en dat nooit heb gedaan. Dus doe ik vandaag.

Echt de moeite waard om eens te lezen.

Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates


Since webbrowsers like Google Chrome and Firefox begin to complain more and more about insecure HTTP traffic, I'm converting all my domains  to HTTPS. For some domains I use the Comodo Essential Wildcard SSL certificates, but for the most I use the free single-domain SSL certificates from Let's Encrypt - Free SSL/TLS Certificates

I have a very skilled hosting provider (ANU Internet Services) and when I prepare my vhosts, he runs certbot to install the certificates, also for my domain-aliases. After that, I add my permanentRedirect directives, et voilá, HTTPS everywhere in 10 minutes.

Please donate to Let's Encrypt to motivate them to keep up this very good work!

The Blogspot Stack 1.1.5 for Stacks with RapidWeaver


Version 1.1.5 is out with the following changes:

Released on 05 mar 2018.

  • Better error handling.
  • Reports error message from Blogger, when there is one.
  • Added localization field for 'No posts found' string.
  • When no posts are found, a 'No posts found'-string will be shown. If you do not want this message displayed, simply empty the corresponding localization field.
  • The categories-list is now sorted case-insensitive. Categories in Blogger are case-sensitive!
  • Added a category-filter to only show posts and an archive-list of specific categories. If you specify more than 1 categpry (comma-separated), only posts which have all specified categories will be listed.
  • Moved the common shared PHP code files to the side-wide assets folder.
    This means that you can clean-up the 'files' folders inside your blog-folders.
    To do this, first republish all your blog-pages with RW, then start your FTP client. Open your site folder, open the folder of the blog-page, open the 'files' or 'index_files' folder and delete all of the following files, when you see them there:
    • archiveMonths.xml
    • blogContents.php
    • blogEntry.php
    • blogspot.css
    • blogspot.js
    • feedtimeline.js
    • LHPEAR.php
    • localVars.php
    • rapidblog.js
    • rapidBlogHelpers.php
    • remoteGrab.php
    • Requestrb.php
    • Socketrb.php
    • URLrb.php
    • xmlrb.php

What has changed:

- Resizing the modal sheet windows is now disabled.

Switch from Onedrive and Google Drive to Dropbox


SkyDrive, Onedrive and Google Drive are, as far as I care, exit. I made the move to Dropbox, and have moved my Calibre library there. So ... I have replaced all old links to Skydrive, Onedrive and Google Drive by a shared Dropbox-link.

If you find a link to a file or book in my blog history which still points to SkyDrive or OneDrive, or Google Drive : please send me an e-mail with the faulty link, so I can fix it.

    The Blogspot Stack for Stacks with RapidWeaver


    As a replacement for the old RapidBlog from Loghound , I created a replacement, named Blogspot.

    Although RapidBlog was a page-plugin for Realmac's RapidWeaver , my replacement is a stack, for use with YourHead's Stacks-plugin .

    Read all about it here

    The advantage now, is that:
    • You don't have to add new posts inside RapidWeaver. Blogger is much better for that purpose.
    • It's mobile-friendly
    • By using Stacks, you can place a Blogger-blog anywhere in the content-area of the page.
    • It's fast
    • No usernames and passwords required to login to Blogger.
    • Blogspot.stack displays any public accessible Blogspot-domain.


    Redirect your Google Blogger (Blogspot) blog to your own website

    Here's a tip on how to redirect visitors of your blog on Google permanently to your own blog-page. Very handy when using my Blogspot.stack to display your Google Blogger blog on your own website.
    When doing this, you don't have to worry a bit about the Blogger-theme ... no-one will ever see it.

    Login to your Blogger-account and choose the blog you want to redirect.
    Then, click on the 'Edit HTML' button:

    When you see the source code of the theme, add a 'meta refresh' tag to the HEAD-section, as in the example in the screenshot:

    Note: when you have saved this change, you won't be able to preview new blog posts from within Blogger... because the preview will redirect you immediately to your website.

    Some things to consider:

    When editing the source code or when you write a blog post, you might get the warning from Blogger that you are mixing http and https content. So ...
    1) your own domain is HTTP and you load images or other things from a HTTPS domain, like from : no problem
    2) your own domain is HTTPS and you load images or other things from a HTTP domain : problem, needs to be avoided!
    3) when your domain is reachable via both HTTP and HTTPS, always redirect HTTP to HTTPS. This can be done via editing the Apache VirtualHost file and add a permanentRedirect rule, or add rewriteCond rules to a .htaccess file in your root website folder : search Google for rewrite rules

    So, now that you know a bit more, you can ignore the warnings from Google because you know why the warning pops up.
    Furthermore, in the case of adding the META-tag, the warning is irrelevant, because you redirect any visitor immediately to your website.

    Last but not least: if you load things form other domains than yours, install Privacy Badger (from EFF) and test your site with it. You’ll see what gets blocked and that’s what visitors, who also use a plugin like this, might experience too.
