++ to fastmail. Their spam filtering has been excellent and they have a good stance on privacy.

Anything is possible, but I don't think judgement of visual aesthetics maps at all to quality of writing.

I'm a damn good technical writer and can break down complex ideas into clear and understandable prose, but I don't know the first thing about fonts or typesetting.

I think it's likely a sincere question. I, for one, would not wanting to be physically touching a radio that people may have been turning on/off depending on whether the device is located before or after their ability to wash their hands.

Not the OP but maybe they just leave it on all the time?

Thimbleweed Park was highly enjoyable. Done by Ron Gilbert and Gary Winnick, two of the people from the classic days at LucasArts.

Oooh that looks like a winner here. I'll try it soon, thanks!

Facebook/Meta has a freeze through the end of the year.

Recruiters are still reaching out to me tho

> and if Visual Studio ran on Mac I'd probably switch my PC out also

Not sure if it supports all the features you need, but it exists.


That’s just a rebranded Xamarin IDE - but for .NET development on Mac, I’ve found JetBrains Rider does most of what the full Visual Studio package does

I like Rider better even on Windows. My favorite thing about Visual Studio on Windows was always the debugger, and I think Clion and Rider have lapped them there in the past two years.

Yes it's just Xamarin modified to look like a native Visual Studio for Mac.

Much better off using Rider (also works nicely on Linux).

IntelliJ is still a little broken on wayland I think. Last I checked they were waiting on a patch to Swing, so right now it's only running under XWayland, it's fairly buggy and doesn't scale nicely. You also need to set some env variables or you'll get a blank screen. It still works pretty well though, which is better than any other similar IDE.

Seconding Rider if you're on macOS. It shares its analysis code with ReSharper, so it's extremely featureful. In fact, it's usually faster than VS + ReSharper because it isn't running two code analysis engines at once and it doesn't have to run the analysis out-of-process.

Note that if OP expects anything like the "real" Visual Studio that runs on Windows, this is really nothing compared to it. I'd even go further and actually prefer Vscode with the right extensions compared to this "Visual Studio".

sounds like when we try to run iTunes on Windows - each competitor is intentionally crapping on the other's users

Don't worry, the Music app on macOS is just as bad as iTunes on Windows...

It's more that Visual Studio is a massive project that was built around running on Windows. It would be a huge undertaking to bring it over to another OS and probably not add nearly enough value. The only reason macOS has "Visual Studio" at all is because Microsoft bought out Xamarin and rebranded their Xamarin Studio product.

Yup it would just not be worth it to bring real VS to macOS. Then why decrease its brand value by marketing a crappy product like Xamarin (which I think has always been bad, and I honestly don't know why MS bothered to buy it) as if it was VS? Just call it Xamarin, or VS "lite", or anything, but not VS as it is not VS.

Consistent branding. Visual Studio is the name they're using for all their code editing software. I don't think it's a good idea given the confusion it causes when people talk about the various programs, but they are distinctly named Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, and Visual Studio for Mac.

Microsoft has never been good at naming things. They made that mess of Windows naming at multiple points and they are still making a mess with the Xbox brand.

iTunes is crappy in Macs, too!!

We use Fluent Migrator for out C# based applications.


It's not done using dynamic SQL tables.

The key insight is to note that FIELDS table actually defines the name, ordering, and config for each of the fields of a given note type, and that the actual notes data is stored in the Notes table in the DATA column, most likely as JSON.

To add to/reiterate the above, they use a separate table to store metadata. Whenever you see a situation in a webservice where there is a custom way to store data, it's likely that they either store metadata in a table, store is as a more lose format like JSON or XML, or a combination of both.

In my experience, most services don't make tables on the fly that are meant to hang around, since storing metadata can get you very far.

Thank you for that! How 'safe' is it to store notes data as JSON? So how can that be validated, compared to storing in table columns?

Verbing weirds language.

The iPhone 12 User Guide warns about this.

From the online version at https://support.apple.com/guide/iphone/important-safety-info...:

>Medical device interference iPhone contains magnets as well as components and radios that emit electromagnetic fields. These magnets and electromagnetic fields may interfere with medical devices, such as pacemakers and defibrillators.

>Though all iPhone 12 models contain more magnets than prior iPhone models, they’re not expected to pose a greater risk of magnetic interference to medical devices than prior iPhone models.

>Consult your physician and medical device manufacturer for information specific to your medical device and whether you need to maintain a safe distance of separation between your medical device and iPhone. There are many types of medical devices, and manufacturers often provide recommendations on the safe use of their devices around wireless or magnetic products to prevent possible interference. If you suspect iPhone is interfering with your medical device, stop using iPhone.
