Firefox 63 security warning issue

The latest version of the Mozilla foundation browser – Firefox Quantum 63.0, introduces an issue with some websites, where even though there is a valid security certificate, it doesn’t load the page.
The below image shows a website that i usually access using Firefox. Other browsers like Edge and Chrome validate the certificate correctly and display the page.

Previously there was an option to add an exception and continue to the site anyway (which is also described on the help page), but in this situation it doesn’t exist, probably because the certificate is found as valid. While i do not know the source of this issue, the fix is very simple if you encounter it – click on the shield icon in front of the URL and “Clear Cookies and Site Data”. In the popup click OK after verifying the domain name – this will clear all temporary data in your browser for this website and open it clean, the next time you load the page.

YouTube’s skewed “Official artist channels” feature

In the beginning of this year, YouTube started rolling out a feature they called “Official artist channels”, meant to make it more easy to find content from your favorite artists.

However, while I was browsing, I stumbled upon this video from Lenka:

Only to find a surprise. I liked the song and I wanted to see if there are more like this on her channel… but the link didn’t lead to her channel.

From the screenshot, you can see that, instead, I was led to an empty channel owned by Sony Media Entertainment.
It seems that she was partnered with SME before, but cancelled her contract, so why is the “Official channel” still the now empty SME channel?
I’ve reported this bug on 24th of October 2018 and now, over a month later, it’s still not fixed.

Funny thing is that when embedded, the above video shows the channel name as “LenkaVEVO” while on the YouTube page it shows “lenkatv”.
If you search LenkaVEVO on Google, it will lead you to the correct channel.

YouTube, the community have been asking for some stability to the already existing features, before adding new ones.

Crypto-currency crazyness

Hey everyone, today is a double-video-post day. I’ve decided to join the gold rush by making a crypto-mining rig. The recording was quite long so the first video shows parts unboxing and the second shows how i assembled the machine.

Изпълнение на custom scripts в SharePoint 2013 с включен MDS модул

ВЪВЕДЕНИЕ

SharePoint е практически изграден на базата на JavaScript.
Скриптовият език се използва за всичко – от смяна на видимото съдържание, до най-различни козметични ефекти.
Тъй-като MDS е сложна обвивка(wrapper) около основната част(ядро или core) на SP, писането на JS бива леко усложнено.
Проблемите възникват предимно поради слабата документация около MDS и неговият програмен интерфейс(API).
В тази статия ще ви напиша основните неща, които трябва да се разгледат при писане на JS за SP2013.

КАКВО Е MDS?

Minimal Download Strategy(MDS) е технология, която позволява значително намаляване на трафика,
необходим за изпълнение и визуализация на SharePoint страници. Това става, като се изчислят само
регионите на страницата които имат нужда от обновяване и се зареди информация само за тях.
Например, ако разглеждаме една галерия, няма нужда да се презареждат навигационните бутони и менютата,
а само снимките за различните страници. Това спестява трафик и повишава производителността на сайта.
