I'm still using a Nokia Lumia 735, my second WP. The sales guy tried his best to persuade me to get something else a couple of years ago. It was the last one they had and the price was 1/5 what they wanted for others. The only problem I've had was that my bank app for mobile deposits was dropped...now I use an older android tablet for that.
Foster kids are like library books, you eventually have to return them.
Serious note, we do fostering and the need is great. If you have the space and the heart please consider looking into it. You can start by providing respite care. That's people who will provide a place for a child already in care whose foster parents need to travel out of state. Foster care rules usually do not allow the child to leave the state and they definitely cannot leave the country.
I didn't want change from 2013 to 2015 but then my work forced me to and it didn't actually hurt very much and I didn't notice any bugs except once it crashed for no apparent reason. Only happened once that I remember.
I then didn't want change from 2015 to 2017 but then I got a new, better job and they were already on 2017 so I got used to it - and it didn't actually hurt very much.
There is the very occasional bug where TFS got out of sync with reality (just needs a restart of VS to fix it) but I haven't got it for several weeks now so maybe a recent fix fixed it. no other bugs have been apparent and I finally changed from 2013 to 2017 at home as well - with no pain at all.
- I would love to change the world, but they won’t give me the source code.
I have run across two bugs with it and both have been fixed. The last one was in 15.8.2 and fixed in the latest update. It wouldn't load the resource file plug-in so I couldn't edit resources visually. The other bug would crash the compiler if a given class' parent did not exist. That was fixed around the 15.6 time frame.
I should point out that I do only native c++ development with it.
