@dnanian Figures. I've got an sdef that has duplicate attributes that 10.5 complains about to maintain compatibility with 10.4.
@sburlot Thanks. I don't care about the Console filling up. Good to know it's not an indication of a serious error.
iTunes submitted a mobile crash report for a crash I didn't notice.
Looking at Console: tons of malloc errors from Xcode and QuickBooks. ScriptSuite error from SuperDuper. Malloc error from ScriptDebugger.
Happy that Twitterrific 3.2 will remember which tweets I've read.
@leebennett Just noticed your Disney photos. Very nice.
@robertscherer No. From what I'm reading, it's a hardware problem.
Apple support specialist said they've never heard of any problems with the Mini DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI adapter.

@jamesthomson Nice job with the new PCalc splash screen. Much better than seeing the button style change.
@kevinhoctor Agreed. The current MBPs are terrific.
No bad blocks on the new drive. Starting clone.
@swgs It helps that it's short and doesn't change between versions.
Should I be worried that I've memorized my DiskWarrior serial number?
@BLUEFROGweb Comments are perfectly safe. They've been part of the Finder's AppleScript API since before OS X. Pain to work with, though.
@BLUEFROGweb It might work fine, it might corrupt the index, it might not preserve those attributes, or index them reliably. We don't know.
@BLUEFROGweb Open Meta is writing data into an area reserved by Apple. Spotlight's behavior with custom metadata keys is undefined.
@cparnot Open Meta seems to have the same pros/cons as Tags. Misleading that they describe it as not doing anything secret. Ugly API. 10.5+.
@ctp And also immutable...
@rentzsch Yes, let's.
@ctp It would understand standard formats like UTF-8 and plist, and your app would declare a schema with what it should expect.
@rentzsch It's not necessarily just a namespace problem, since Spotlight's behavior is undefined when encountering unknown attributes...
@rentzsch If it's searchable by Spotlight but not in the comments field, it must be using a com.apple xattr key. I don't call that Safe.
@rentzsch Which standard metadata is it using?
@gregtitus Wow. Large fonts, or great eyesight?
@ccgus Me, too. Have you found anything better than fs_usage?
Signed up for Amazon Payments. Works a lot like PayPal. Hopefully E-junkie will add support soon.
@Huperniketes Well, I don't think ditto handles hard links.
@leebennett I had been using Time Machine over FireWire for a year or so, without experiencing that problem. Just started with Time Capsule.
It also slows down URL caches and Spotlight comments for other applications.
For some reason, backing up to a Time Capsule makes Safari very slow at setting metadata for downloaded files (on other volumes).
@DericHorn Thanks! Looks much easier than NetInfo Manager.
@iacas Python, I think.
@nriley No, this started when I installed Picasa.
@leebennett It's just like when they improved video quality to "near-DVD" a while back (before HD was available).
@jonshea I'm trying to prevent Google's software update agent from running, since I'm not even using the app.
Info about laptop hard drive and SSD performance: http://tinyurl.com/7mkr22
I'm pretty sure the .exe files in Picasa are just so it can copy them to burned CDs. http://tinyurl.com/9qhcuz
@rentzsch But is there an adapter to use a MacBook Pro with a full-size DisplayPort?
Getting the RAM from Apple is OK, but I want to be able to access the hard drive: http://tinyurl.com/a5pez8
@bwebster The battery video seems to go out of its way to show that the bottom is completely clean.
@bwebster Is there a way to upgrade the RAM yourself on the new 17-inch MacBook Pro? I didn't see a door on the bottom.
@bonaldi Yes, it just seems like Apple is afraid to say that.
Are the hard drive and RAM easily accessible on the new 17-inch MacBook Pro?
Apple continues to only talk about SSD as being more durable, not faster.
@cortig Probably not much, since it doesn't need large amounts of RAM. Could potentially make some stuff faster, though.
Who are these people that run four-year-old versions of my apps on Snow Leopard?
@ccgus I like "Event Scripts" better. Fits in with other kinds of scripts, e.g. BBEdit menu scripts, EagleFiler metadata scripts.
@bwebster There's lots of good stuff in the Foundation and AppKit release notes.
@command_tab Me neither. Most Mac users I know only have one battery, anyway.
@dmkash Please put a few test messages in a mailbox, find it in ~/Library/Mail/, and e-mail it to me.
@dmkash Drag and drop causes Mail to create a .eml file without the tags. You need to use EagleFiler's capture key to import MailTags.
@iacas Yes, just make a regex with a capture that matches the title attribute.
