Nice, exactly what I was looking for!

Visual Studio Fix: Intellisense Not Popping Up or Not Working « OmegaMan’s Musings

I was monkeying around with Resharper optimization and lost Intellisense altogether! Here’s how I got it back.

In quick launch type “Statement Completion” and choose the first one  “Text Editor -> All Languages -> General” to be taken to the options page for all languages.

On the general options page in the “Statement Completion” section override whatever is in the boxes “Auto list members” and “Parameter Information” and makes those checked. Such as shown here:

A caution about git branch names with ‘/’s

Git, you tricky bastard.

Let’s say I first create a branch named ‘wip/foo’:

git branch wip/foo

Git will create a file named ‘foo’ in the folder .git/refs/head/wip/. Now, suppose I attempt to create a new branch named ‘wip/foo/foo-offshoot’. git will return an error:

error: unable to create directory for .git/refs/heads/wip/foo/foo-offshoot
fatal: Failed to lock ref for update: No such file or directory

Introducing Quick File Search | Bitbucket Blog

I’m glad I found this, I’ve really been needing/wanting it. In Bitbucket, you can press ‘F’ to bring up a quick-search dialog and type in any file name to find & jump directly to a file in the repository. Until now, I’ve been manually clicking through directories and hating every second of it! (But this is apparently old news. Using ‘.’ to open the Omnibar is the way to go now. Exact same idea, though!)
