Great - if only PayPal cared as much for its customers as its employees

They've been sitting on $5k of your money for four years, and you haven't contacted them for it back?

-----


Look at the man's profile. He has quite a bit of money, I speculate.

That's an awfully nice interest rate on that loan he made to Tesla (from Tesla's perspective)

-----


Tesla also makes a tidy profit on each car sold.

Anything similar in the UK?

I work on two systems at the moment, and they are in very good condition

> I rarely see articles about the evils of internalization, something that I strongly believe brings great harm to the markets

How?

-----


Internalization disincetivizes people from making tight markets in lit venues because you will only get filled when an internalizer thought the flow was toxic. This in turn means that markets are wider for all participants.

Holy crap, so it does

Works well for me

I have 16GB of RAM on my work machine and if I leave two instances of Visual Studio running the machine saturates after half a day.

Plus even they admit to the slowness[0]. But regardless I bet a certain core demographic of Resharper users are never going to admit to a problems (slowness/lag/slow startup/RAM usage/memory leaks).

If this new IDE (which uses the same Resharper codebase) ends up being a lot faster than VS then we'll know where the bottleneck is.

-----


Well an IDE with less features is going to be faster than VS, that isn't a question. Just see Sublime Text, insanely fast until you start adding extensions and it gradually gets slower and slower.

But Resharper is an absolute hog. For as slow as Visual Studio can be, it quadruples it in all categories. Just look in this thread, you can see dozens of people saying the same thing: Resharper has massive performance problems.

In principle, only a small proportion of features need to be actively consuming cycles. Most require no resources until invoked by the user.

Only a small proportion of those features are actively involved with drawing and so need to block the UI thread sometimes.

And only a small proportion of those features perform some essential drawing operation and so need to block the UI thread every frame.

So while a badly designed IDE with fewer features will outperform a badly designed IDE with many features, both will be trounced by a well-designed IDE with many features. It's the design that matters.

-----


In my experience, no other VS extension even begins to affect performance to the degree ReSharper does. JetBrains readily acknowledges the performance issues. Is there a conflict of design between VS and ReSharper? Perhaps. But that their homegrown IDE build around ReSharper will work faster than VS + ReSharper is a pretty safe bet. Apples and oranges, here.

-----


He is right to a degree, VS2015 implemented many refactoring tweaks and functions that were only available in ReSharper.

Now VS2015 can refactor and inspect code by itself pretty darn good.

-----


Yes, your understanding is correct

-----


That's buy-side, a different kettle of fish.

-----


We were indeed on the buy-side, but we traded with the banks on the sell-side, which we observed becoming increasingly automated.

-----


We already know that software doesn't need to be run on the same OS in order to work together.
