July 2008

Turned off auto-sync. No sense in firing that up every time I'm on EDGE and can't access my LAN.

via Twitterrific

Convinced OmniFocus to combine its hundreds of XML files into one, and now it syncs properly to the iPhone again.

via Twitterrific

So there's no way to have 1Password *not* ask you to install the browser extensions at each launch?

via Twitterrific

Is there some way to just turn off data detectors? They're never helpful and get in the way when selecting.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett I read that the buds are the same but the cable is different.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

...and now my home screen icons are jumbled.

via Twitterrific

Some of my apps have updates in the mobile app store but not in iTunes.

via Twitterrific

@stevenf Knol will have higher PageRank than you, so more people will see your stuff there.

via Twitterrific in reply to stevenf

The last several mac.com addresses I've tried to send to have returned "unknown or illegal alias" errors.

via Twitterrific

@danielpunkass I'm not sure there's anything wrong with the new layout. I'm just not used to it.

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

Is it my imagination, or does MarsEdit 2.2 have tighter spacing between the source list and the article list?

via Twitterrific

@danwood My beef is the "@"--to me that says e-mail address, not URL.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

@natevw "No two selectors are the same, and all methods with the same name have the same selector." I think "same" implies bitwise equal.

via Twitterrific in reply to natevw

@mgrimes 10.4 now, but when Sparkle came out I supported 10.2.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes I had update code that predated Sparkle and worked on earlier OS versions. I don't like the Sparkle UI and need features it lacks.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@bbum The docs seem pretty clear on that point, and huge volumes of code and Apple examples use ==.

via Twitterrific in reply to bbum

@bbum That a SEL is a (char *) is an implementation detail, but at issue here is whether equivalent SELs must have identical values.

via Twitterrific in reply to bbum

@danwood The funny thing about that is that the text says it's using _cmd as the mutex.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

@rentzsch Why? Even the July 2008 revision of the Obj-C book does it. And there's nothing about it in the 64-bit transition guide.

via Twitterrific in reply to rentzsch

@rentzsch I think SEL is automatically interned, so you can use ==.

via Twitterrific in reply to rentzsch

SuperDuper's elapsed time text field isn't wide enough to handle double-digit hours.

via Twitterrific

iTunes says there's a 0.0 MB update to version 1 of Light. How much more white could it be?

via Twitterrific

Yes, I realize that wifi traffic is sniffable (would like a secure built-in WebDAV server for OmniFocus), but it's not as easy as using LS.

via Twitterrific

I'm not the type to run Little Snitch, but I'm glad others do. But who can run it for me on their iPhone?

via Twitterrific

Benchmarking some SATA enclosures and getting huge differences where I expected small ones.

via Twitterrific

Return of the "alert volume is always zero despite what the slider says" Leopard bug. After a restart is seems to be OK, though.

via Twitterrific

@danwood Well, there's NSAttributedString's -initWithHTML: if you don't mind using the main thread.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

@danwood pydoc htmlentitydefs.name2codepoint

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

Too bad, because it works pretty well for the part that I can see.

via Twitterrific

With Vine server I can set it to connect with fewer colors, and it's faster, but it's still limited to showing part of one display.

via Twitterrific

Mocha VNC Lite isn't working for me with OS X's built-in VNC server. It loads part of one display, slowly, and then hangs.

via Twitterrific

I still head to the bottom of the iCal window to try to change the month.

via Twitterrific

The other advantage to WP Super Cache is that most pages still work when your database is down.

via Twitterrific

Trying Name Mangler. Seems to have a nicer interface than ABFR.

via Twitterrific

@jessegrosjean Who says they didn't type in iT? ... Hey, it's finally letting me download Bubbles.

via Twitterrific in reply to jessegrosjean

OmniFocus is forcing me to get things done. If I don't review my task list and clean it up, my iPhone will run out of RAM and hang.

via Twitterrific

Apparently the bricking of my iPhone deleted all the alarms in Clock. Other application data seems to be fine.

via Twitterrific

Enter to edit/commit makes more sense than Escape in OmniFocus, but I'm having a hard time adjusting. Plus, Enter requires my mousing hand.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett Just out of curiosity, why are you using SMS?

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

@nriley Not close. Blue→Green, Orange→Red, Red→Blue, Green→Blue, Purple→Orange, Orange→Purple.

via Twitterrific in reply to nriley

@jimcorreia Maybe there's a trick, like disabling and then enabling accounts in Mail to re-order them in the source list.

via Twitterrific in reply to jimcorreia

Why don't the event colors in Calendar match those in iCal?

via Twitterrific

It's a shame there's no way to bookmark pages in the iTunes store without using another app.

via Twitterrific

Syncing Pocketpedia. Why doesn't it use a progress bar?

via Twitterrific

Movies app is kind of lame. 2 clicks and a scroll to get to the showtimes. I can see it all on one screen in Google.

via Twitterrific

The iTunes support link for Twitterrific links to a Web page that just links back to the store.

via Twitterrific

iPhone restored at last.

via Twitterrific

iPhone restore completed, but I still get error -4 when clicking on it in iTunes.

via Twitterrific

Unbricked. Now "Restoring iPhone music and videos." This will take a while.

via Twitterrific

...and then stops with error -4.

via Twitterrific

Now instead of reporting an error, it hangs on "Accessing iTunes Store..."

via Twitterrific

I can still get to the iTunes Store. I think the update completed, but it's failing to connect to the activation server.

via Twitterrific

Unknown error -9838, and now I have a brick.

via Twitterrific

Finally starting iPhone software update.

via Twitterrific

Wishing for a NetNewsWire touch that synced directly with my Mac. I don't want to use NewsGator's server.

via Twitterrific

@charlesarthur Yes, that's my point. There was nothing unusual about that bug report.

via Twitterrific in reply to charlesarthur

So, uh, I could have helped track down the Greatest Bug on May 27.

via Twitterrific

Delicious Library 2.0.2 beta updates my library (about 5,800 items) in 246 MB of RPRVT instead of 2+GB and lots of thrashing.

via Twitterrific

Fixed a composed character bug.

via Twitterrific

Man of my clang FPs came from trying to trick GCC into being quiet. Clang is smarter.

via mobile web

@mgrimes I don't know. I'm only using a tiny bit of gc at present. Still lots of false positives.

via mobile web in reply to mgrimes

Ran clang across all my code. Found 14 leaks, 8 of which were in Shortcut Recorder.

via Twitterrific

Another software update, another SMC reset so my displays aren't black.
