"New Gear": An overview of changes to my active toolbox over the last couple of years:
Hypervisor workstation horrors:
Today I learned why recently my primary workstation VM would just die on me from time to time:
Had forgotten to actively set up swap for the hypervisor and had recently increased overall system memory pressure. So whenever I hit the memory ceiling, the memory manager would kill the hungriest process - easily the qemu process for my main workstation VM.
- #Unity will ignore the -executeMethod flag when the -runEditorTests flag is also passed.
- The #Unity test runner _does_ wait for completion of other domain load invokes, including invoked script reloads, before responding to -executeMethod.
So: If you want to parameterise a TC Unity test run, use custom CLI parameters.
TIL: Unlike other targets (including the editor mono JIT), #unity IL2CPP very much does not like it when you keep things in the stack for later.
LD, DUP, OP, OP
LD, OP, LD, OP
Handling of the unfortunate case is _not_ very graceful: Nonsensical generated C++. Thankfully it at least doesn’t compile.
Second stab at family photo storage:
Piwigo is very promising so far. Fast to set up and get going, plugins very quickly sorted initial bits of missing functionality. Auto-upload from phone just goes full speed right out of the gate.
Will run this in parallel with the fruit company service for a while, evaluating as we go.
Vacation definitely over. Feet noticed that morning walks are back and yesterday started with work mail broken. Wohoo!
On the upside I am now back with a non-broken mouse (click means click) and once some paperwork juggling is done I get to the "fun" task of juggling .net/mono runtimes, figuring out the probably fascinating reasons why our patcher crashes when run with the Unity-shipped mono binaries.
Future-me who gets to reap the benefits better be appreciative.

And now for something completely different:
An "our terms of service have been updated" email which I found enjoyable reading :)
#protip for companies: It is possible to communicate without using barely-softened legalese.

Big ♥️ to our very own @mdiluz , who has done a ton of extremely necessary, even though not always extremely glamorous, work toward making this a reality.
