Just so long as they don't hardcode DB connection strings

If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
Yes, seriously, at work for desktop apps etc I still use app.config style, as all the apps run from a central place on a server which is seriously locked down it's fine - all it shows is the very basic connection properties ( i.e. no user/password ) so it's not a problem

My mouse has been getting iffy - it releases sometimes while drag and dropping, double clicks when I single click, you know the kind of thing. Trouble is, it's a Logitech Trackman, and they don't make 'em any more. The newer model I don't find as comfortable (as well as being £80) and is wireless, which I don't like either. I like wired keyboard and mice so the cat can't remove them.
So it's replace the microswitch time. Buy 5 switches from Amazon on Prime next day (£4 for Omron ones), open it up (4 screws), detach the PCB (two clips, one spring), solder suck 3 joints, replace switch, solder three joints, reassembly is the reversal of disassembly.
About 5 minutes in total. Works fine!
So ... something has gone properly today, which makes a nice change.
How's your day going?

Yep once you get the hang of soldering you don't lose it.
I've been up since 3am, couldn't sleep working in the Nextion Editor - Nextion[^] to learn how to use a Nextion display. Ordered 2 of them for a project I'm working on and they provide a TFT with touch screen that an MCU can communicate with over UART. Has a simple language of it';s own and is pretty dang nifty! Right now am working with the simulator until I get the actual devices!
