After a four-year hiatus I have decided I want to play music again and I have joined a band. This is probably very bad timing since most of the places we will likely play have been ordered to shut down. I guess we will have plenty of time to rehearse.
Anyway, tonight is the first rehearsal following the (successful) audition. A little while ago the guitar player sent me an e-mail about learning another song that wasn't on the list. It's by The Police and it's called, "Don't Stand So Close To Me." For these days, I can't think of a more topical song than that.
-edit- it has morphed into an extended medley and maybe a whole set. We'll also play "Keep Your Hands To Yourself" by the Georgia Satellites.
Can you think of any other songs on the topic?
"They have a consciousness, they have a life, they have a soul! Damn you! Let the rabbits wear glasses! Save our brothers! Can I get an amen?"
And, coincidentally, I just ordered new strings (Rotosound flat wound), some blank nuts, and a maintenance kit for guitars. The bass (Musima Action 2001) has been sitting there since the DDR dissolved.
And I tore apart my amp trying to track down the intermittent no-sound problem. I *think* it's one of the pots.
We won't sit down.
We won't shut up.
We won't go quietly away.

I posted a request earlier today regarding whether I should use Github or Dropbox for my current project and got some good feedback. I think I should use Github. Can I find a basic article on how to use Github from Visual Studio without Azure or some other stuff I don't use ? NO. I need a simple howto ( assuming nothing ) of how to create a HW project and push / fork / branch / share / pull and a myriad of other terms to GH from VS. Please help

I found GitHub's online documentation to be fairly good. I have absolutely no patience for learning these kinds of systems, because I'd rather write code. But it didn't take long to get used to GitHub. Just jump in and you'll probably be OK. Sorry, but that's the best advice I can offer.
The command line?! You're a much better man than me. I use the VS extension and would only research the command line if I was trying to do something that didn't appear to be supported within the extension or when using GitHub in the browser.
It's pretty easy to be honest and there are a lot of things you can do that aren't supported in any Git software I've used (GitHub Desktop or VS) like rebase and stash.
Most of what is commonly done can be done using add, commit, merge, branch, status, push, and pull. Not even any complicated options or multiple parameters. To each their own though
EDIT: Viewing branch histories is usually easier in graphical interfaces to be fair, but you can view that on GitHub or use git log --oneline --all --graph --decorate from the command line. I have an alias for it so I don't have to remember all that. Not as pretty as GitHub though.
Atlasian Sourcetree does both. Stashing is dead simple, the rebasing UI is confusing enough that I need to read the docs every 3-6 months when I need to do it. Which is a shame since in GUI app you should be able to indicate what you want to go where by dragging the first commit you want to move to its destination. For simple cases I just cherry pick in a manual point and click loop.
Did you ever see history portrayed as an old man with a wise brow and pulseless heart, weighing all things in the balance of reason?
Is not rather the genius of history like an eternal, imploring maiden, full of fire, with a burning heart and flaming soul, humanly warm and humanly beautiful?
