Adding static libs to github repo, next steps

 Not sure if git got confused or I did something wrong. I had to do a clone of the repository after uploading some static libs. The libs are required as this was the distribution mechanism for the files. May have just been a one time thing but writing this down in case it happens again.

had to manually populate with the github web interface, couldn't use the github desktop. might have been a .gitignore setting that i just couldn't see the files, investigate later.

for example, 'where fxc'.

disabling profiling in visual studio 2019


Disable in Options->Debugging->General->

Enable diagnostic tools when debugging.

Startup and shutdown of apps during debug is much faster, especially on remote debug scenarios.

After lubricating the treadmill also have to go into a menu called 'maintenance' and reset the average current or it will not compute a current based on the new lubricated treadmill.

this is not documented as far as I can tell.
