This is a Christmas star.
I don't like the results so far....
I just 'completed' setting up one of these projects in vscodium, installing the c/c++ support, and the server it needs, the Python script to generate a giant compile_instructions.json (is custom flags per file so common that this is the good way to push people?). And it still can't find my include files.
This is not meant to be hard
3.5 hours for "yes there is a real problem, looking into it"
Slower than I'd like, but they confirmed the issue
Our IT support company has 'set up' a managed Linux cloud server for us. I log in and attempt to install useful packages, connection to servers fails. Put in support request to have that fixed at 10:30am Friday.
They say it should work, maybe the update servers were down. This email came at 8am Monday.
8:30am I reply that all outbound connections are failing, can they please fix.
When should I expect the next useless reply?
I don't think I've listened to a more interesting interview with an Australian politician
