After the recent price changes I’ve been searching.
No more Neostrada (= Versio = TWS) for me.
Never again!

I also decided to move all my clients to their own hosting accounts and packages. I started using the services of mijn.host myself. Much faster, Litespeed servers, easy Directadmin environment and affordable.
Takes time to move, but so worth it.

That’s all folks!
Have a nice day…

PS. update 28 november 2023:
Whoppaah, and another >20% added for whatever reason!
So glad I switched to mijn.host!

Robocopy Quirks

Old-fashioned, but I still use batchfiles to automate tasks on my computer. One of them is a backup mirroring script, using the robocopy command. Recently I wanted to add a folder from C:\Program Files\appname\ to the backup, so I added the following line to the backup-script:

Robocopy "C:\Program Files\appname\" "\\SERVER\Backup\LAPTOP\appname\" /MIR /XJD /R:8 /W:15 /MT:32 /BYTES /V /NP /LOG:log-LAPTOP-appname.log

However this did not work, what’s the problem? Who knows… but the solution is to add a space before the closing end-quote. So just use:

Robocopy "C:\Program Files\appname\ " "\\SERVER\Backup\LAPTOP\appname\ " /MIR /XJD /R:8 /W:15 /MT:32 /BYTES /V /NP /LOG:log-LAPTOP-appname.log

On another note, check this, and use (also note the * and not *.* !!!):

"C:\Program Files\7-Zip\7z.exe" u -r -up0q3r2x2y2z1w2 -mx=0 -password Z:\somefile.zip "C:\Somefolder\*"

That’s all folks!
Have a nice day…

How to clear the DNS cache on your computer

Many computer operating systems use caching to store DNS lookup results. Normally this is not a problem, and accelerates network performance.

To clear the DNS cache, follow the appropriate procedure below for your computer’s operating system or web browser.
