It’s not as big as the photo might suggest. The main thing is, it is just fantastic. It cost £90 or so at the time, now more like £150. Listen to my attempt to do it a tiny bit of justice… and failing, ha ha (click on “SoundCloud” below to go to the site rather than just play the snip):
(but OK-ish in the end for the emulator but not the phone – check the end of the post)
In installing Windows 10, I trusted in my VisualSVN server (good), trusted in Azure (good), but my published Windows app now fails to deploy with an error. What error? Too late to talk about that, but here are most of the screenshots that led to that point. Some tidying and explanation may follow (also, since Windows 10, the snipping tool hangs for 30 seconds, then fine – can’t see anything in task manager to indicate why).
One last argh.
15 minutes later….
And now it’s OK, with absolutely no changes on my part. I wonder if Windows 10 was still sending in its updates, along with Visual Studio etc, and it thought I was a bit quick off the mark.
We’ll see if it’s still healthy another day.
Trying to deploy to the phone rather than the emulator I get this…

That file is too big to post here, but the final lines give no clues, other than the word “CrossGen”:

I’ve been looking at various books and online tutorials for learning AngularJS, and although it was staring me in the face every time I downloaded an AngularJS… js, I didn’t take much notice of the course. Today I did: just based on the first part, it is really nicely put together with tests at the end of each module to check progress. I think I’ll persevere with it, and drop the others.
My daughter now effectively has her own Spotify account, and I wanted to get my old playlists from her. I thought it would be easy just by Following… but when looking for Friends in Spotify, I could not find the account.
Saving playlists is do-able by other means, namely:
“If you are not sure which module is missing, use the not minified angular.js which gives a readable error message:"Error: [$injector:nomod] Module 'ngRoute' is not available! You either misspelled the module name or forgot to load it. If registering a module ensure that you specify the dependencies as the second argument."
