TypeScript in Visual Studio Community 2017

Just loaded up the VS 2017 community release. The TS 2.1 features include strong types relating to null and undefined. A bit annoying, but none the less it does force some decent console logging of salient error potential. I’ve found that many apparent error conditions are being removed. If only I could find a way to stop the coercion in JS, such that it is. It is one of the things I never liked about JS. I’d prefer an explicit cast every time.

How Moving to Outlook Destroys Your Gmail

Just testing out office 365. Surprising features in Outlook include unsubscribing folders, still makes them delete-able. Which is very surprising as you’d likely unsubscribe to a folder to not consume local space and download, and just want it left alone on the server. But alas the default to spam fill everything, with no subscribe wizard, and a bad default action on unsubscribed folders, and you’d think Microsoft never ever tested this thing in the real world of reality.

I have been thinking of a short cost saving by an Azure migration, but this has to be tested before committal. The last thing I need is to find that Microsoft has some limits on root servers. I find my current provider good, and would not want to end up between a rock and a hard place.
