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


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.**

Step 1: Make ice tea and name your company "Long Island Iced Tea Corporation"
Step 2: Rename it to ""Long Blockchain Corporation"
Step 3: Profit (+200% stock price)
Step 4: ???


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.

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.
