When someone writes UTF-8 and UTF-16 strings to the same file in binary format without converting between them…

The Wiert Corner – A while ago, I had to fix some stuff in an application that would write – using a binary mechanism – UTF-8 and UTF-16 strings (part of it XML in various flavours)  to the same byte stream without converting between the two encodings. Some links that helped me investigate what was wrong, ...

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

Why I care about QC and the Delphi community.

The Wiert Corner – QC now forwards to QP and it is no longer possible to see your older open QC posts. Since the RAD Studio IDE still appear to report issues to QC – how can we now keep track of our submitted issues?

List of “Plain Text Offenders”; hopefully someone publishes a list of https offenders too

The Wiert Corner – Without announcing an actual date, right before the weekend Embarcadero killed their [WayBack] QualityCentral publicly accessible and search engine indexed issue database.

delphi – How do I parse a web URL? – Stack Overflow

The Wiert Corner – It looks like the platform-neutral TIdURI from Indy solves some corner cases that WinInet.InternetCrackUrl doesn’t. Someday I’ll check it against the .NET Uri class and report back about this. An addition, you might want to extend it as it lacks some features: Indy, TIdURI.PathEncode, ...
