Linus and Luke not knowing of 'winget'.
1 project | reddit.com/r/LinusTechTips | 10 Jan 2022
I really like chocolately. It’s a windows repo service sort of like npm but for windows applications. It has a UI too. I imagine it’s similar to winget. https://chocolatey.org/
Recommended way for win(7 or 10) VM?
1 project | reddit.com/r/archlinux | 8 Jan 2022
Check out https://chocolatey.org/ for a cli based pseudo-package manger. Looks like they have a package for llvm.

I recommend ninite or chocolatey.

If you are on Windows, you can use Chocolatey instead of homebrew.
Helping set up parents' brand new Dell remotely, Windows 11, what most basic items should I load + clean for them? (usually a Mac user)
1 project | reddit.com/r/software | 5 Jan 2022
That wasn't really a question. But I would suggest using something like a Ninite installer to add the programs you want and keep them up to date. If you're a little more tech-savvy, you could use the Chocolatey package manager which gives you a lot more options.

Automating Clickonce deployment for .net 5.0 Winforms. Just went through scripting my deploy with power shell and wrote it up.
2 projects | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 20 Nov 2021
But the command line tooling for deploying separate channels (e.g., dev/test/prod) is really poor and in 2021 this is table stakes. Projects like squirrel have been spun up to get around this.
Are there any good game platforms for distributing scientific experiments?
1 project | reddit.com/r/gamedev | 15 Nov 2021
Since you probably don't want to bug the user to install the Itchio app launcher to provide update and are not distributing it through a channel that provides auto-update of your application (such as the Microsoft Store, Steam, GoG/Steam/Epic Games Store, etc) you may want to look into something like Squirrel to package your application into an installer that provides this auto-update capability.
Libation 6.4 -- Custom file naming
3 projects | reddit.com/r/audible | 11 Nov 2021
Having read through the (long) issue 1470 support thread I'm intimidated. There's a ton of stuff in there that I've never heard of. It would be a great learning experience to grok it but I doubt I'll do that. The idea of rolling my own seems incredibly naïve.

Need Some Help
1 project | reddit.com/r/csharp | 24 Jul 2021
Can we do partial deployments?
1 project | reddit.com/r/dotnetcore | 28 Jun 2021
