Hardly any gigs

After COVID, the situation is dire. There are hardly any gigs for bands. Note that there are gigs for singles, duos etc…. There is no one place like Gordon Biersch was for having music regularly although I have heard there’s a place called Work/Play that has bands. I heard the Tapa Bar is having pop bands again.

Searching for an Apple Watch app

The App Store from Apple has a terrible search. What I mean is that any search that cannot find a unique string is bad by default. Every search worth anything can find a hashtag or a unique word easily. You have to change the programming so it doesn’t find a word on purpose. I have two applications, Intervalz and Musical Keyboard made for only the Apple Watch (not iPhone) that cannot be easily found on the App Store. Even Apple support couldn’t find these apps. All because the App Store cannot find a literal/unique string!

Well, it turns out there is a way. The Apple Watch does have a watch app called App Store. This is the App Store app that runs directly on the watch itself. This marvelous piece of engineering is able to do what the entire ecosystem of Apple cannot do – find a simple unique name.

So press the crown, find the App Store app on the watch, scribble in Intervalz or Musical Keyboard and install!

Moving Flutter projects

It’s unbelievable that simply moving a Flutter project from one computer to another can cause it to not run. In the interests of saving people time, here is the fix.

After moving a project from another computer or even from another folder!

1: Enable dart Support (it will prompt you)
2: Run flutter pub get in terminal in the project root directory
3: Go to Preferences->Language & Frameworks -> Flutter and set the flutter SDK path
