What is in my keyring:

What is *not* in my keyring:
- Key.

In case you are using and need to deal with data, you might want to check my module SQLSimplePS - github.com/texhex/SQLSimplePS.

It allows, among other things, commands like [SQLSimple]::Query("SELECT * FROM dbo.TestTable", $connectionString) which returns a hash table.

I also thought the property names I choose are way too long. But then I came across this gem from docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dotne

Switch.System.ServiceModel.DisableUsingServicePointManagerSecurityProtocols=false

I think it's a clear indication that you server code needs work when testing it with cURL returns this:

curl: (26) read function returned funny value

How good is Visual Studio Code compared to PowerShell ISE?

It's "I released a new version of my personal PowerShell module because working with VS Code is fun" good.

From the [Factorio Wiki](wiki.factorio.com/Production_s):

The timescale can be set to 5 seconds, 1 minute, 10 minutes, 1 hour, 10 hours, or 50 hours.

If you are a new player, you might find the idea of playing a single factory for 50 hours ridiculous. **You'll change your mind soon enough.**

I swear, the DI.FM Nu Disco channel is playing Take That. Which year is it?

I learned today the hard way that the [InstallDelete] section in fails silently for locked files. No error, no message. If the file is locked, Inno just ignores the delete command.

I replaced it with a Pascal Scripting section that use FileDelete or MoveFileEx: github.com/source-foundry/Hack

@thecapegreek Forgot my personal adventure highlight of the year: "The Sexy Brutale". Short, but amazing mechanics and story telling.

And no, this ain't a sex game.

@thecapegreek Did you checked "They are billions" already? I like it a lot - but can play one hour at most because I suck at it ; ).

@fdgonthier Good to know, thanks. If you ever make the switch to LOS, please let me know if the camera still perform as good as on stock. I have seen some reports that with LOS the camera isn't as good as on stock.

@jon_valdes @fdgonthier I like my G4+ also, but to be honest: The camera fails in low-light situations so it disqualifies itself for a lot of people. I'm looking at you instagram ;).

@fdgonthier It also supports LineageOS ("Lux") but although it shares a lot of hardware (SD 615 vs. 617) with the G4+, it costs ~250€ Euro so it was outside my range. Are you on stock or also on ?

I bought the Moto G4+ to have a cheap device (~150€) to play around with but it turned out to be one of the best device I ever tried. Pure standby time at about 6 days, good performance and MicroSD support. Just the boot loader unlock process sucks.

At least in one cut scene, Assassins Creed Origins becomes Unity... mastodon.technology/media/WWSX

Shadow of War game files are 65 GB in total.

Mordor seems to be huge place.

The Sexy Brutale is one of the best adventures I have ever played and also puts in some pun from time to time.
