Redistributing toner.

via Twitterrific

@danielpunkass More importantly, it uses continuations present a linear control flow!

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

Using "git checkout" to strip resource forks.

via Twitterrific

Not happy with Leopard's string hashing.

via Twitterrific

@atomicbird Can't beat the syntax, but a good macro could probably do the job well, too.

via Twitterrific in reply to atomicbird

@atomicbird Wouldn't that require that it box the indexes, thereby negating the "fast" part?

via Twitterrific in reply to atomicbird

Filed bug for Web Kit crasher.

via Twitterrific

@adamengst Flat discount on a product, flat or percent on the whole cart. For a bundle you'd probably need a separate SKU or a SKU variant

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@adamengst Can download transaction log. I have it ping my server with info for each transaction and run reports from my own database.

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@adamengst There are item- and cart-level coupons, with some flexibility, but not coupons like "If these two products purchased, do this."

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@adamengst Cross-Sell: I think it can promote other products when they purchase one, but it won't auto-discount them.

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@adamengst Best I've seen, although eSellerate is pretty good in that department.

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@adamengst I'm just setting it up; it's not live yet. However, so far their support people have been very responsive and helpful.

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

It's the opposite of E-junkie's which is in Flash and super-fast.

via Twitterrific

eSellerate admin interface keeps timing out.

via Twitterrific

@rentzsch The RTX-Q-1 is close, but pricey.

via Twitterrific in reply to rentzsch

@rentzsch What I want is an enclosure that's let's me really treat them like floppies. Enclose the drive, but let me slide it in the front.

via Twitterrific in reply to rentzsch

@rentzsch That looks nice, but I couldn't get past that it's *more* expensive than the TT-XE that encloses and prevents vibrations.

via Twitterrific in reply to rentzsch

Deleting font caches for the third time in the last day.

via Twitterrific

Naming my locks.

via Twitterrific

Switched my dad to IMAP.

via Twitterrific

@sethdill Looks like I may have to go in with mysql and do some find/replacing.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

Conversion didn't work since it replaced non-Latin characters with '?'. Restoring from backup.

via Twitterrific

LaunchBar now works with Leopard developer documentation.

via Twitterrific

Agreed: NSOperation's use of "concurrent" is confusing.

via Twitterrific

Just noticed there's a ToughTech FS.

via Twitterrific

Got some ideas for reducing lock contention.

via Twitterrific

Oops: gotta Rebuild Forum Information, too.

via Twitterrific

Shame there's no one-click way to remove mass comment spam.

via Twitterrific

vBulletin > Threads & Posts > Prune > Prune by Username. Then Rebuild Thread Information.

via Twitterrific

Goodbye AutoBaseClass.

via Twitterrific

@mgrimes Yup. I'm actually using BBEdit for my release notes, though.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

Fully switched to TaskPaper just as OmniFocus goes beta. Stilll like the latter, but it's way too slow.

via Twitterrific

GIFs support more than 49 colors, Google. http://tinyurl.com/22e6mr

via Twitterrific

"Helvetica" is now in Netflix's catalog.

via Twitterrific

After installing 10.4.11, restarted and got stuck at blue screen. Powered down, turned on, and it seems to be OK.

via Twitterrific

I still think it's odd that Leopard volunteers to repurpose external drives, full with my files, for Time Machine.

via Twitterrific

You call that "blazingly fast"?

via Twitterrific

Received the replacement RAM from Crucial, and this time memtest likes it.

via Twitterrific

I'm not sure what changed, but after years of avoiding them I'm suddenly creating tons of text factories.

via Twitterrific

Received a huge ADC renewal box containing...one DVD.

via Twitterrific

So far no one's complained about the dropped Jaguar support. One person sent a thank-you for retaining Panther support.

via Twitterrific

The updater asks for an admin password to be sure that replacing the app will succeed. Nothing left in an inconsistent states.

via Twitterrific

The databases are back up.

via Twitterrific

@retrophisch Wasn't going to get any coding done today, anyway, so might as well release all the updates at once. :-)

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@cipherswarm Thanks for the report. The database seems to be down.

via Twitterrific

Dropped support for Jaguar.

via Twitterrific

@danielpunkass Actually, I was referring to MarsEdit not keeping the .dmg file after Install & Relaunch. Or am I misunderstanding you?

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

Annoyed with Sparkle updaters that don't save the downloaded file.

via Twitterrific

Oops, my spam test account accumulated 55K messages. All clients get dropped before they can retrieve the message list.

via Twitterrific

Easy vBulletin update thanks to better version control.

via Twitterrific

You'd think I would have learned by now not to believe it when a customer says that it looks exactly like the screenshot in the manual.

via Twitterrific

The forum got a mortgage spam in the thread about getting rid of mortgage spams.

via Twitterrific

Photoshop still has the easiest Replace Color command.

via Twitterrific

Several interactions between AppKit and WebKit behave differently on Tiger and Leopard. :(

via Twitterrific

@leebennett I usually use DMS, but this time Crucial had a better price, and blog/twitterfolk seemed to like them.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

Not understanding the Crucial love. First they sent me defective RAM. Now it's been two days and they haven't replied with my RMA.

via Twitterrific

Acorn plug-ins can now resize and crop—maybe I can retire Foto Trimmer.

via Twitterrific

Out of habit, still pressing Space to get to the top of the list and opening Quick Look instead.

via Twitterrific

Applying three MIcrosoft Office updates in sequence. Why don't they have combo updaters?

via Twitterrific

Received the Leopard DVD from ADC.

via Twitterrific

Version 1.5.3.5 fixed git-log --follow!

via Twitterrific

@fraserspeirs Agreed. I guess I was expecting it to be worse, based on your tweet. Seems rather typical, unfortunately.

via Twitterrific in reply to fraserspeirs

Loving the way TaskPaper and Git work together.

via Twitterrific

Fast User Switching is awesome for testing, but VMs would be nicer.

via Twitterrific

@sethdill Yeah, or we could just wait for 10.6 to build Twitter into Mail...

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

According to the crash log, in Leopard NSInvocation is defined in CoreFoundation.

via Twitterrific

Was going to put this feature off, but it was too much fun to write a tiny code generator.

via Twitterrific

The new Growl seems to use much less RAM, but the new Twitterrific uses even more than before.

via Twitterrific

@Twitterrific Could you check for memory leaks? 3.0 is consistently using 90+ MB of RPRVT.

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

@particlenparcel For the customer I'm helping, it's somehow set to move every message to the Spam mailbox, and it won't stay deleted.

via Twitterrific in reply to particlenparcel

@particlenparcel It's created by every new installation of Apple Mail, to process messages from Apple mailing lists you may be subscribed to

via Twitterrific in reply to particlenparcel

@twitterrific Why can't you hide the tweets I've read? With new tweets popping up below the read ones, it's hard to keep track.

via Twitterrific in reply to Twitterrific

Attack of the "News From Apple" rule.

via Twitterrific

Address Book now uses Core Data instead of Metakit.

via Twitterrific

The TaskPaper CLM is nice.

via Twitterrific

Look who walked through that door.
