Please no more posts about DiskWarrior until the CD updater is ready.
Downloading MarsEdit 2.1.
@brentsimmons That undoing a tab confused me when I was trying to undo moving a folder.
@jessegrosjean Dropping SearchKit would be nice for other reasons, too. Glad to hear you're working on it.
Time to relaunch Growl, TaskPaper, and Twitterrific to get their RAM use below 200 MB each.
There should be a way to make NNW reload pages for you and tell you when they change.
Apparently, Arc is now an acceptable Lisp.
@ccgus Congrats on the ++
nibtool doesn't like NSSegmentedControl.
@retrophisch Seems easier than I thought those were supposed to be.
@rentzsch It's better than 10.4 Finder not showing some of the mounted disks...
NetFinder: Now there's a name I've not heard in a while.
Who clicks those next/prev buttons on Google ads?
Just got a tech support question about Claris Emailer.
If you're adding a category to a system class, *please* prefix your method names.
Yes, by all means stick to a tiny subset.
@danielpunkass It's much friendlier than the .strings format, I think. Yet easy to read/write using NSXML*.
@danielpunkass Plus an XLIFF editor like LocFactory for the localizers.
@danielpunkass IMO: Localizing in code doesn't work well. The GUI tools are lacking. Best to use scripts, XLIFF, nibtool, BBEdit, VC diffs.
@particlenparcel Certainly, and I'm not saying I expected him to do it. But based on their match at the US, it was certainly possible.
@particlenparcel Not really...Djokovic is pretty good.
@danielpunkass I was reading just such a crash report when you tweeted that.
@eridius I like what HFS+ is trying to do, but I'm not sure it goes about it the right way. Perhaps it should be preserving...
Disabling GoogleCheckout. Too many people getting delayed order processing or not receiving order confirmations at temp Google addresses.
"Wouldn't it be great if we could fix everything with a restart?"
Testing on Panther. Look: a drawer.
@bwebster My previous tweet was in error. The problem is with -wait, not -broadcast. Seems like -signal is probably useless without -wait.
@bwebster I don't think it's usable at all on Tiger. The specific problem that bit me was that it raises when you call -wait.
Confirmation from DTS: NSCondition is broken on Tiger.
The first step in a procedure of this type is...to attach gdb.
@leebennett It works with Intel-based Macs.
@bricooke Did you use --repack or "git gc"?
@retrophisch Yep, one of the best of the year.
@nriley I go back and forth. Really liked early versions. Hated the version with "wands." Then it got good again, but 9.0 is a little weird.
@luomat Yep. Ping and traceroute are gone, too, but at least OS X has easy built-in commands for those.
Seems that Interarchy 9 removed the network traffic watching feature, without warning.
@rentzsch Yeah, needing to do that walk confused me at first, too.
@danielpunkass Was it "never got my S/N" or "you never sent my S/N"?
@rentzsch Do the docs lie?
@fraserspeirs Yeah, or possibly with a big white border.
So it seems hopeless to get this right except in certain limited cases where it pays to be extra careful.
NSBundle doesn't handle Unicode normalization, and neither does -[NSString hash].
Turns out that -[NSString isEqual:] doesn't handle normalization, either, even though -compare: does, by default. Spooky.
@natevw IIRC, Junio outlined a potential solution (adding some normalized info to the index).
@natevw Comparing filenames with each other and with unicode's and NSStrings from the user and from databases.
Wondering if I should be worried that unicode.__eq__ doesn't handle normalization.
Best of show but has Windows screenshots and ships in March? Lame.
Why does PS Elements 6 work on a G4 but not a single-core Intel processor?
These Google Checkout forwarding addresses are nothing but trouble.
@danielpunkass Yes, exactly. Eventually Steve will tell us how the technology was finally ready and Apple was uniquely able to do it right.
If it were really good, and content were easily available, I could see it increasing reading. Isn't that what the iPod did for music?
60% of people in the U.S. is a huge number. Online content or not, who wants to read long-form content at a desk or on a laptop?
The 40% almost seemed like a non-sequitor to me; isn't the relevant question whether the people who *do* read would like Kindle?
@eridius SpamSieve works with the iPhone the same way Mail's filter does: when the Mac's running, use IMAP to clean out the spam.
So, according to the new HIG, source lists in open/save panels shouldn't be blue?
How can this iPhone update be only a 0.0.1 bump?
Wondering how many corrupt backups Time Machine will create due to copying files/folders in inconsistent states.
Updating expect scripts.
If you're going to send HTML e-mail, at least make the links clickable.
@danielpunkass Much better; thanks.
I asked him to try: defaults delete com.apple.mail "NSToolbar Configuration NSPreferences"
@ccgus 10.5.1 doesn't have the lozenge for me. Neither did the builds from the last year or so.
I'm too picky to buy anyone else's code, so it'd have to be something with a cool algorithm worth rewriting.
Customer hid his Mail Preferences toolbar when using Tiger, now is using Leopard which doesn't have the lozenge button to get it back.
@natevw Interesting. Thanks.
@schwa Don't forget to re-raise the signal after handling it.
PSA: Top-level AppleScript variables are implicitly global *and* persistent. (Thanks, Matt Neuburg.)
@retrophisch You got that right.
@iacas Apple claims only 1.2x on Final Cut HDV rendering.
growl.info has been 404ing for a couple days now.
No Blu-ray in the new Mac Pros?
To clarify, please e-mail email@example.com.
Please contact me if you're one of the people who saw obscenely long SpamSieve launch times on Leopard. New build for you to try.
PowerMate 2.1 restores AppleScriptability, but it seems to leak memory like crazy.
Just got a crash report from someone running the current version of SpamSieve...in Rosetta.
I though "for change" was just a generic politician phrase. "We campaigned on the issue, and the issue is change! Change for the future!"
I would not have expected that Cabel was an Emacs user.
@sethdill Of course.
And Mail won't import its own .imapmbox folders. Will drag them into EagleFiler to convert to mbox, then import the mbox files into Mail.
There's a backup from a couple days ago, but Mail's import command is confusing with double-click vs. the Choose button.
Wouldn't be a problem but for compulsive trash-emptying.
The downside of IMAP: Dad deleted some messages from Web mail, and now they're gone from his Mac.
People find it off-putting that my products say "Recommended: Growl."
