@SharnQuickBooks Thanks. Any change to the Ref No. length limit?
@QBGirl Is there no more detailed description of what's new?
@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?
@danielpunkass I guess to use that with Dropbox you'd have to make it sync down to a removable drive.
@DonMcAllister It throws away resource forks, extended attributes, the bundle bit, etc. without reporting to the user that it's doing this.
Dropbox really should be more up front about the fact that their product destroys Mac metadata.
@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?
Updating my DiskWarrior DVD.
@mgrimes Tired of losing metadata?
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.
Air Sharing 1.0.2's new image viewer is great.
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!
@kcase Yay--I'm looking forward to turning off httpd.
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.
@jamesthomson I'd use the Roll slot for the 2nd button and use 2nd-Swap for Roll.
@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.
@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.
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.
@siegel Why wouldn't a 30-inch display work with the new MacBook Air?
@siegel Why not?
@leebennett It should use regular buttons and pop-ups. The HIG says the other style is for scope bars. (Time Machine also uses it...)
Why does the new Trackpad pref pane use a scope push button and a scope pop-up menu? http://tinyurl.com/43zgok
@leebennett That does look silly.
Apple Remote no longer included. Dual-Link DVI Adapter $99 extra.
@leebennett No, I mean the integrated cable that splits into MagSafe power, DisplayPort, and USB.
According to the photo, they really did remove FireWire from the MacBook!
@leebennett Loss of DVI port, new tri-cable.
@kevinhoctor A good direction, yes. I just think it's more of a niche technology. Would like to be wrong.
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."
@kevinhoctor I'm skeptical. Are the any public numbers on the effect of the GPU/OpenCL on normal code?
Granted the Apple one is nicer, but Dell has a 24-inch display for $419 instead of $899.
@siegel I was comparing to the 2006 MBP, which was 2.33 GHz.
They removed the FireWire port from the display?
However, in the nearly 2 years since my MBP, they've only improved the processor by 0.5 GHz.
New MBPs look good, but no eSATA or Blu-ray. Great that the hard drive is finally accessible.
@dsandler Good question. Maybe switch fingers mid-drag?
@fraserspeirs Yep, Subway Shuffle is great.
@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.
The NYT doesn't know what a negative feedback loop is: http://www.nytimes.com/2...
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.)
@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.
@ays It copies into the library and indexes whichever messages were stored there at the time of the import. So, past but not future.
Seeing lots of hangs in cupsDoIORequest as it seems to be waiting on a local HTTP server.
@ays Please send your EagleFiler question to firstname.lastname@example.org
@kch That doesn't sound right. Please use Activity Monitor to sample Mail and SpamSieve; send the files to email@example.com.
@kch Take forever to do what? Which mail program are you using?
@mgrimes I just need simply monthly and weekly repeats.
Finally moving my repeating to-do items from iCal to OmniFocus.
Not a big fan of Time Machine for my own use, but it's great that my customers have it.
@chockenberry Yeah, and I'd like a replacement Clock app that could play songs from the music library...
@uliwitness AppleWorks does not live resize.
Tons of forum spammer registrations over the last day. I'm going to try reCAPTCHA now.
So the explanation is that Apple wanted to file patents about the SDK rather than the actual shipping software? Does that make sense?
