Cool that we're reached the point in the pro critic vs influencer to social media post divide that ordinary people mentioning that the new Pokemon looks (technically) one of the weaker games on the Switch is rallied against. The same week that pop-in & framerate drops in the new Star Wars game are front & centre in quite a few pro reviews.
"These fans use technical terms but probably have no idea what they mean" isn't a great response from critics who are also not devs.

Btw Fancy Zones doesn't look particularly convenient right now: lacks almost any configuration, is-alas- not working together with altDrag, saving/switching layout is not that comfy and reopened windows sometimes end up all overlapped on the same zone. I guess it can only get better with future updates if anything.

I wonder if, when combined with FancyZones, it might almost make life as convenient as on Linux...

The P4V client has got to be my least favourite piece of software currently. Slow, rudimentary, clunky, cluttered with mess and missing (or hiding very well) fundamental features. I'm really considering migrating to purely using the CLI, but I'm not sure how practical that would be.

I just spent 10 minutes trying to figure out how to pass files from my phone (Android) to my PC (Windows) via USB. In the end I gave up and am passing them through Wi-Fi.
Such is the state of phone usability in 2019.

Nice to see git addressing some of command line complexities. "checkout" command is way complexicated, the new "switch" and "restore" make sense. github.blog/2019-08-16-highlig

Yay, now I have to sign software that I've built locally to run it on my own computer!
Thanks, Apple!

The amount of time I waste looking up ways to disable unwanted behaviour on Visual Studio is outrageous. Such a horrible experience and a horribly over-complicated IDE.
