@SharnQuickBooks Thanks. Any change to the Ref No. length limit?

via Twitterrific in reply to SharnaSF

@QBGirl Is there no more detailed description of what's new?

via Twitterrific in reply to QBGirl

@seiz Yes, that's what started this conversation.

@danielpunkass How do you make Dropbox "sync down" to a different folder without deleting the original one?

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I guess to use that with Dropbox you'd have to make it sync down to a removable drive.

via Twitterrific in reply to danielpunkass

@DonMcAllister It throws away resource forks, extended attributes, the bundle bit, etc. without reporting to the user that it's doing this.

via Twitterrific in reply to donmcallister

Dropbox really should be more up front about the fact that their product destroys Mac metadata.

via Twitterrific

@QBGirl I was asking about the Mac version. Is there a detailed change list somewhere? Why doesn't my special offer code reduce the price?

via Twitterrific in reply to QBGirl

Updating my DiskWarrior DVD.

Path Finder 5 is still a regression from 3.x IMO: http://tinyurl.com/69mcsx

@stevenf The way I remember it is that it's always the opposite of what I'd expect.

@leebennett Such cables are easy to find but not included.

@dmkash Put an alias to your library's "To Import" folder in your Pictures folder and then choose it from Snapz's pop-up menu.

@manton iLife and iWork don't have upgrade discounts, either. I'm not sure what the thinking is, other than that they can get away with it.

via Twitterrific in reply to manton

Air Sharing 1.0.2's new image viewer is great.

via Twitterrific

Intuit wants me to "upgrade" to QuickBooks 2009, but there's no upgrade discount and hardly any info about what's new. Indies, step up!

via Twitterrific

@kcase Yay--I'm looking forward to turning off httpd.

via Twitterrific in reply to kcase

iTunes: Please fix your search field focus ring to match the Graphite appearance.

@jamesthomson I'm drooling now. Too bad Apple doesn't let you save your own Default.png. It looks funny switching button themes at launch.

via Twitterrific in reply to jamesthomson

@jamesthomson I'd use the Roll slot for the 2nd button and use 2nd-Swap for Roll.

via Twitterrific in reply to jamesthomson

@jamesthomson I realize removing 3 M buttons doesn't free up a row. I'd make AC and Drop the 2nd functions for C and Del like on the HP.

via Twitterrific in reply to jamesthomson

@jamesthomson I'd love to see 2 rows of stack on the main screen instead of that row of buttons. Or maybe 4 rows with a smaller font.

via Twitterrific in reply to jamesthomson

PCalc's new default layout is a big improvement. I also like the new themes. But I'd like to get rid of the memory buttons in RPN mode.

via Twitterrific

@siegel Why wouldn't a 30-inch display work with the new MacBook Air?

via Twitterrific in reply to siegel

@leebennett It should use regular buttons and pop-ups. The HIG says the other style is for scope bars. (Time Machine also uses it...)

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

Why does the new Trackpad pref pane use a scope push button and a scope pop-up menu? http://tinyurl.com/43zgok

via Twitterrific

Apple Remote no longer included. Dual-Link DVI Adapter $99 extra.

via Twitterrific

@leebennett No, I mean the integrated cable that splits into MagSafe power, DisplayPort, and USB.

via Twitterrific in reply to leebennett

According to the photo, they really did remove FireWire from the MacBook!

via Twitterrific

@kevinhoctor A good direction, yes. I just think it's more of a niche technology. Would like to be wrong.

via Twitterrific in reply to kevinhoctor

Snell: "The MacBook doesn't seem to have a FireWire port. I don't think they mentioned it, but I didn't see it in the video."

via Twitterrific

@kevinhoctor I'm skeptical. Are the any public numbers on the effect of the GPU/OpenCL on normal code?

via Twitterrific in reply to kevinhoctor

Granted the Apple one is nicer, but Dell has a 24-inch display for $419 instead of $899.

via Twitterrific

@siegel I was comparing to the 2006 MBP, which was 2.33 GHz.

via Twitterrific in reply to siegel

They removed the FireWire port from the display?

via Twitterrific

However, in the nearly 2 years since my MBP, they've only improved the processor by 0.5 GHz.

via Twitterrific

New MBPs look good, but no eSATA or Blu-ray. Great that the hard drive is finally accessible.

via Twitterrific

@dsandler Good question. Maybe switch fingers mid-drag?

via Twitterrific in reply to dsandler

@kevinhoctor You could write a macro to add one for you...

The CUPS hangs are back, even though I don't have any printers configured.

via Twitterrific

The NYT doesn't know what a negative feedback loop is: http://www.nytimes.com/2...

via Twitterrific

Deleted tons of cache files, and now the CUPS hangs are gone.

@ays I don't see your e-mail; I don't think it made it through. (Yes, I checked my spam folder.)

via web in reply to norarubinoff

@ays Yes, importing is a spot in time. I recommend bulk-archiving at the end of the week or month. Or importing select ones as desired.

via Twitterrific in reply to norarubinoff

@ays It copies into the library and indexes whichever messages were stored there at the time of the import. So, past but not future.

via Twitterrific in reply to norarubinoff

Seeing lots of hangs in cupsDoIORequest as it seems to be waiting on a local HTTP server.

via Twitterrific

@ays Please send your EagleFiler question to eaglefiler@c-command.com

via web in reply to norarubinoff

@kch That doesn't sound right. Please use Activity Monitor to sample Mail and SpamSieve; send the files to spamsieve@c-command.com.

via Twitterrific in reply to kch

@kch Take forever to do what? Which mail program are you using?

via web in reply to kch

@mgrimes I just need simply monthly and weekly repeats.

via Twitterrific in reply to mgrimes

Finally moving my repeating to-do items from iCal to OmniFocus.

via Twitterrific

Not a big fan of Time Machine for my own use, but it's great that my customers have it.

via Twitterrific

@chockenberry Yeah, and I'd like a replacement Clock app that could play songs from the music library...

via Twitterrific in reply to chockenberry

Tons of forum spammer registrations over the last day. I'm going to try reCAPTCHA now.

via Twitterrific

So the explanation is that Apple wanted to file patents about the SDK rather than the actual shipping software? Does that make sense?
