Tips and picks

Tip of the week: Dev is back, baby!

Follow along as I revive two of my previous article series:

App pick of the week: .NETpad

Soon, everyone will be able to download the WinForms version of .NETpad. It has a few key advantages over Notepad.

Enterprise pick of the week: Microsoft fixes yet another botched Patch Tuesday update

Windows Server admins weep, then rejoice (maybe?)

Codename pick of the week: Nickel

Back to the periodic table this week for our codename. Windows 10 (and 11) 21H2 was Cobalt. Windows 10 and 11 22H2 is Nickel. Some references to Nickel have been showing up lately. Thanks, Tero.

Beer pick of the week: Shacksbury The Vermonter Cider

The Vermonter is a dry, gin botanical cider made by slowly fermenting apples and adding juniper berries. 6%. Vergennes Vermont. Very flavorful.
