@ctp Too bad he doesn't blog more.

@iacas Right: a project or a multi-document window. I just use Command-N and (optionally) Move To New Window (Command-Option-O).

via Twitterrific in reply to iacas

@iacas Document adds it to the current front window.

via Twitterrific in reply to iacas

And the Web page only says 3.1.

via Twitterrific

Bad NetNewsWire. 3.1.7 available from Sparkle but not the Web site.

@mgrimes I like seeing keywords and strings colored the same as during normal editing. Otherwise, I'd prefer green and red like Trac.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@mgrimes Nothing wrong with Changes, but I don't see anything to win me over from BBEdit's diff window. I like syntax coloring...

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

Anyone want to beta test BBAutoComplete for BBEdit 9?

via Twitterrific

@siegel Very nice, and congrats on 9!

Writing a script to generate licenses for @sethdill.

via Twitterrific

What if you don't support Silverlight or Quartz Composer?

via Twitterrific

@grynspan There are 4 * 13 characters of whitespace, so the line begins in column 52+1.

via Twitterrific in reply to grynspan

If a line begins in column 53, you need to refactor.

via Twitterrific

Wouldn't it be nice if something like this were built into the OS? http://code.google.com/p...

via Twitterrific

@retrophisch Congrats! (I never got the tweet via SMS; must have messed something up.)

via Twitterrific in reply to retrophisch

@schwa Yes, but you could just add a HOM for creating an NSInvocationOperation. Do you have more than half a dozen uses for invocations?

via Twitterrific in reply to schwa

@schwa Why do you need to make the invocation and grabber explicit? I think it's cleaner to use a trampoline: [[target onMainThread] method]

via Twitterrific in reply to schwa

@mountaineerdave SpamSieve isn't supposed to appear in any Thunderbird menus.

via Twitterrific in reply to mountaineerdave

@mmc No reason to use Java, but should it be a scripting language or C? :-)

via Twitterrific in reply to

@fraserspeirs Yep. Although it includes a nice script for combining PDFs.

via Twitterrific in reply to fraserspeirs

@kcase Looking forward to trying that syncing optimization.

via Twitterrific in reply to kcase

@BaxterG4 They wouldn't be; that's why apps would add buttons to copy text that isn't detected.

via Twitterrific in reply to glhaynes

@schwa OK, but then you'd get each app inventing a Copy button.

via Twitterrific in reply to schwa

@onecrayon My apps ask InternetConfig which downloads folder to use. It should be settable in Safari. If it doesn't work, please e-mail me.

via Twitterrific in reply to ianbeck

@mgrimes Thanks. I'll have to check that out. Looks nicer than Files.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@onecrayon Pick a different downloads folder?

via Twitterrific in reply to ianbeck

@sethdill Although said rule might be disabled if you had trained a message from that address as spam.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

@sethdill Unless you've turned auto-training off, there should be an auto-created whitelist rule for that address.

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

@sethdill Seems unlikely. Is that really what the log says?

via Twitterrific in reply to sethdill

Ran into Time Machine problem (http://tinyurl.com/6afcgb) but a restart fixed it.

via Twitterrific

I don't think I've ever had an incident that was useful. Need seeds, though.

via Twitterrific

@danwood Not magic, but it's easy to write a helper class to act as the perform's target, call the desired method, and record exceptions.

via Twitterrific in reply to danwood

Making a wallpaper in Acorn.

via Twitterrific

You still owe Apple the 30% if the sale is refunded? Yet another reason to prefer PayPal.

via Twitterrific

The second restore lost my alarms, and PCalc wouldn't launch. Now everything seems to be back to normal.

via Twitterrific

Sync done, but now my iCal is totally messed up. Every day shows 15 duplicate copies of events from years ago.

via Twitterrific

Recovery done. Will skip syncing media until I'm sure it's stable.

via Twitterrific

Recovery mode again.

via Twitterrific

Still no word on why BoxOffice was pulled?

via Twitterrific

iPhone totally locked up, wouldn't reboot or show in iTunes. Restored, synced, home screen jumbled, doing the long backup. Want TM for it.

via Twitterrific

@mgrimes The iPhone app or the desktop app? The desktop has always synced fast for me.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

@jsnell It's absolutely worth the time, but please let's stop saying "grep" when we mean "regex."

via Twitterrific in reply to jsnell

@adamengst (.*\r*.*)* is needlessly complicated to match. Try something like (?s).*

via Twitterrific in reply to adamengst

@leebennett iTunes is still confused, but the App Store on the phone isn't.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

Finally got apps updated from the phone. 2.0.1 still doesn't preserve the positions on the home screen.

via Twitterrific

Updating apps from phone, App Store crashed at password prompt.

via Twitterrific

Deleted duplicate copies of apps, but iTunes' updater is still very confused. Says 2 are available, shows 12, 6 of which are duplicates.

via Twitterrific

@mattgemmell Good post, but why bother with the NDA bit when you have no idea what the reason is? You just assume there's one and it's good.

via Twitterrific in reply to mattgemmell

@retrophisch Nice post. I can't believe it's been 10 years. It's been great working with you.
