Microsoft Word loves HTML

Word is a great text editor, whatever die-hard fans of the late WordPerfect may say. I will, however, admit that WP had a few advantages when it comes to transparency of the underlying code. After more than 20 years, Word can still annoy me because WYSIWYG does not live up to its name. No better illustration than HTML, because there we do see the underlying code.

Setting up XBMC with MySQL

You have a central media server and several XBMC/Kodi devices connect to it. Unfortunately, what you watch on one device isn't marked as 'watched' on another and each device needs to refresh its library individually. The solution: use an external database. XBMC uses SQLite, but most people use MySQL if they isolate the library part.

There are plenty of guides already around for this, but quite some of them are confusing, outdated, version specific and/or assume the configuration will happen flawlessly. That seldom happens. I hope to be able to help anyone who got stuck with other how-to's.

My media server runs on a Windows Server 2012 R2. My MySQL runs on the same server (XBMC doesn't talk MSSQL), so my guide is Windows based. Most issues are platform independent though.

I know this pretty good restaurant in Berlin... just don't order their soup. Not in English, at least.

... of toch een goede kandidaat. Ik werk (onbetaald) sinds kort in een (zeer kleine) elektrozaak om terug te 'leren' werken. Veel werk heb ik niet: wat eenvoudige PC-reparaties, wat scripting en wat HTML. Een product uit het keukenassortiment trok mijn aandacht vandaag:
