Over the last week I’ve been asked repeatedly about INN’s status So I’ll post the same answer I’ve give n out several times
It seems to have been a series of bad luck & timing
Garry was in the process of transferring operation of INN to me Just as I was going on holidays
And apparently Digital Ocean had a node failure and thats where INN was housedAs far as I know Garry hasn’t investigated or invested any time to get it back up and running since he was moving away from being the admin anyway
And I’ve been on hotel wifi so couldn’t get anything done
The intent IS to get the domain transferred and the discourse instance back up and running as quickly as possible
UPDATE : I am HOPING that once the domain transfers that INN will be back up That could be later this week after Nov 23 Fingers crossed !

Flat out I’ll say Thanks to Xojo for the 2.1 decision to revert the event name changes. Of all the changes that one was probably the hardest one to deal with as there’s no easy way to #if around an event definition or event handler.
Properties may still cause some grief if you start a project in 2019r2 or r2.1 since they don’t retain the “old” values” so going back to an old version can be tricky if you start in 2019r2 or 2.1.… Read the rest
There are ways to see what is / isnt being recompiled
Its one of those many temporary files xojo creates
First thing you need is the PID of the specific instance of xojo you’re interested in. It makes life simpler IF you just run one version at a time Once you start Xojo you can look in Activity Monitor & get its PID
If you find the dir referred to by SpecialFolder.Temporary… Read the rest
