I’m a fan of Visual Studio, and recently installed VSC on my Linux Mint. However recently I did a deep-dive on Richard Stallman’s site reading about just how evil and depraved all the big tech companies are, including Microsoft (not that I didn’t already know that these companies are evil, I just didn’t realise the extent of their depravity).
Now I’m feeling edgy about having VSC on my machine. I’m security and privacy conscious, and use TOR browser often. I read recently that on Windows 10 machines, opening certain files through TOR browser reveals your real IP to Microsoft. This being the case, I’m wary of having microsoft software installed on my machine.
I was wondering what the risks are if I keep VSC installed on my Linux Mint 19? How can I confirm that this program is "sandboxed"? I don’t want it spying on me. What sort of information is it known to transmit to Microsoft, and what other information could it potentially be collecting without my knowledge?
Forgive me if this is a stupid question. I’m not sure how to do an independent investigation which is why I want to come here and ask the experts. If no one knows a direct answer to my question, I will still upvote pointers as to how I could investigate it independently. (I haven’t confirmed this, but knowing microsoft, VSC is closed-source, which obviously makes the job much harder)
I have a list of sqlserver on on table on tbl_servers which have 500 server. example:
Select IP_instance, DBname, username, password from tbl_servers which will return the all sql server and their sa credential.
–> 10.10.1.30, myDatabase, sa, password
I would like to add all of this into the Registered server, can this done by SQL scripting? or any faster way to add?
In new futures of Microsoft company remove debugger in
SSMS database engine 15.0 and they are called improvement. (-_-)
I tried use debugger in visual studio 2019 by this answer :
How to add the Debug button to SSMS v18?
But i’ve below error when run debugging :
As a consumer of Visual Studio Marketplace extensions, I frequently find myself wondering if this or that nice little add-on might be a security problem. For example, maybe it uploads my code somewhere. Is this a risk I simply have to take? Is this somehow checked? In the case of a popular add-on, would it be reasonable to assume that if it did do something like that, someone would have noticed?
I’m having to connect to a customer’s Microsoft SQL Server. I generally don’t need to do much in databases besides your average SQL, so using the database features in IntelliJ IDEA have so far been more than sufficient for various PostgreSQL and Orcacle databases. In this case though I was given a heads-up that I will have to change my password first, and when I use IDEA to connect with the credentials I received it does indeed reject them and gives me an error message saying I need to change my password. I was also told to use SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) to do so.
SSMS is only for Windows, I’m running a Mac. The SSMS download page refers to Azure Data Studio for use on a different OS. An initial try of the latter did not let me change the password though. Even if I eventually find a way to do it, is there really no other easier way to do this that doesn’t involve installing another full-blown db tool that I have no intention of using in the long run? Or worst case: buy a windows computer for the sole purpose of installing SSMS so I can change a password? Surely there must be a bunch of Mac- or Linux-using DBA’s that know of a simple command-line tool or alike that allows them to change their password initially on a Microsoft SQL Server, after which they just use their favorite db management tool to access it?
After several tries to draw my player, enemy object in my game, I often face a problem rendering either because the method cannot be resolved or because
I have a player and enemy classes both extend Sprite class. First, I tried representing them as Bitmaps, after that as drawables:
and then I would set bounds and use player.draw(canvas)…
What is , from your experience, the most efficient way to display moving objects in the game screen.
I am using Unity 2018 with Visual Studio Code version 1.43.2 on a Mac.
Things seemed to work fine between Unity and Visual Studio Code, but now I realize that something is wrong with Code. I have been following along with a tutorial and the autocompletion functionality of Code seemed fine until the function
OnTriggerEnter, which was shown as autocompleting for the guy in the video (who was using the other Visual Studio), didn’t fill in. However, many other Unity things do automatically show up as options.
I looked at this Microsoft help page about VS Code and Unity, and I have everything it I seems I would possibly need to combine the two; I have .NET, Mono, Debugger for Unity, the C# extension, and got Unity Tools for good measure.
Generic C# things like
int, etc. autocomplete, so the C# extension seems fine. Many Unity things, like
transform, etc. also autocomplete like they should.
What is wrong here? How can I fix this and get full autocomplete?
Being weak at English, I face many challenges in coding as I often miss the meaning or purpose of a method especially in java. What I ask for is not a course but simply a mini dictionnary hilighting the important java classes and methods of android especially game-related ones. Thank you
I’ve had this problem for a while and can’t find anyone with the exact same issue.
I get the error when trying to select top 1000 rows.
I checked in the PublicAssemblies and it is not there. the lowest version there is 9.0. And I can’t find a copy anywhere else.
Thanks for any help.
