Movie #121 - Using reFind to fix System.UITypes warning

QC does this logon call to http://qc.embarcadero.com/coBugCGI.exe/soap/ICDSReportPublicInterface

The Wiert Corner – I drafted this in 2014 and given the recent QC news: I was quite shocked to see that the Embarcadero QC client logs in over HTTP, not over HTTPS, especially since it passes the password in plain text.
