I’m on my second (soon third, I expect) keyboard.

This reminds me of the time I changed a MacBook Pro keyboard on a client laptop. So many tiny screws, grain of rice for scale:

Sorry guys, 2019 iMac 5K with 40GB RAM here. But I need that sort of power just to run Adobe Illustrator satisfactorily.

Yeah, IPA for the mobo, soapy water for the individual keys I popped off and scrubbed clean. G&T is sticky.

So many tiny screws

Ain’t that the truth! And not just one type. No, two or three different screwdriver bits required. Triangle head, star head, cross head, …

Changing/cleaning the keyboard is my least favourite maintenance job. Especially since any such intricate work is a massive cat attractant and then my carefully-laid-out array of screws so I know where they all came from is for nothing. Note to self: invest in a magnetic work board so the screws stay put in the orientation I set them out.

Invest in and curate a magnetic board, otherwise you get this (mine, just now):

Ahem. I mean, I know what they all do…it’s just…yeah, it’s chaos.

Re: PHP 8, MAMP, alternatives for local development

Not seen one of those magnetic boards before. I used the lid of the small ifixit toolkit. I forgot that I also replaced the keyboard and the battery in the MBP and also had to deal with the 100 tiny screws. Taking out the existing keyboard meant disassembling the innards, peeling off the backlit foil and then literally ripping the faulty keyboard free of the aluminium body. Unfortunately a lot of the aluminium pegs didn’t pop out with it, so need removing individually with a flathead screwdriver placed on one side and a tap with a hammer. Felt very archaic taking a hammer to a piece of electronics … but it worked :-)

I’ve had that board for years, it’s showing its age now. There are many generic ones out there, back when I purchased it they were quite new and priced accordingly.

Re: PHP 8, MAMP, alternatives for local development

Just gone down an Internet rabbit hole and found project boards like this. Handy as I’m always mucking around trying to find bits of card to solder onto to avoid ruining the kitchen table. But you can’t draw on these mats to label stuff like you can with a magnetic white project board.

The search continues…

Re: PHP 8, MAMP, alternatives for local development

I still have a macbook pro titanium from 2006 which still works, be it without the battery which I took off years ago. I keep it to open old documents the formats of which are no longer compatible with my current setup.

Re: PHP 8, MAMP, alternatives for local development

To get back to your original request:

Bloke wrote #327567:

So please, if you would set up a Txp installation from scratch using 4.8.5-dev to stress test:

  • No database connection at all
  • Incorrect DB login and/or password
  • Incorrect table name
  • Correct table name but tables already exist
  • Correct/incorrect table name with prefix that does/doesn’t already exist

You shouldn’t see any yucky PHP error messages during setup, just nicely formatted (red) error messages from Txp itself, with the real PHP-generated errors squirrelled away in your logs.

I went through all your tests with the current dev branch cba9688a… / 18.12.2020 and all is good.

Re: PHP 8, MAMP, alternatives for local development

Yay! Thank you for testing those, Sir. Glad I’ve not bungled it. It’s fun debugging something when you can’t see the error so have no clue besides intuition whether it’s been fixed or not :)
