I'm dry again this year, offshore Qatar, but did have a lovely fillet steak for lunch and then just had some excellent roast beef and lamb for dinner.
Been watching all the moaning coming from the facebook groups about the taxes that started today, on tobacco, alcohol and other unhealthy products like energy drinks etc. 100% tax on some products and 50% tax on others. Hate to think what the hotel booze prices will be now!
At least they got a petrol price cut to compensate.
Anyway, Happy New Year everyone and I wish all of you and your families a Healthy, Safe and Prosperous 2019.
Just realized when going to bed, that started 2019 with setting up my ever first Java application (for Andriod) - it was actually interesting to play with... Didn't felt the pain of the different language (a C like too) and probably was too busy to learn to notice anything really bad about...

It could be construed as a programming question.. hence I hope you will forgive me for putting it here...
However no code is involved and.. it's just an easy to ignore, VS debugging user experience question...
When I debug with Visual Studio, everytime I break the code, by clicking the pause button it show a goddamn screen (replacing whatever current file I was looking at) "The application is in break mode... here is some useless information in fullscreen for your viewing displeasure..."
How do I get rid of this goddamn f***ing useless, nay irritating, window?!
For now I placed it at the bottom with the various diagnostic windows and VS remember. But it's so f***ing annoying...
Remark: this really started when I disabled Diagnostic Tools. But my VS debugging experience was suddenly very slow after I started collecting CPU info, so I disabled the diagnostics.
Just the feeling that you're thrust almost immediately into a world where nothing is named rationally or intuitively, and nothing is where you would think to look* is enough to wilt your enthusiasm. And that's one of the minor hassles!
My first few days with it, a browser with a search-engine spent more time topmost than the IDE.
* E.g. What bright spark put all the CVS commands exclusively in a right-click context menu, under "Team"? Not the first place you'd look? I'd say it's a place where no-one would ever look!
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
