The servers go off on 8/31, and Brent is still figuring out what to do about clippings, hierarchy, and "special" characters?

So the executive summary is that the existing NNW sync will stop working and, even for a price, the new syncing won't be equivalent?

via Twitter for iPhone

@dsandler Yes, as I recall unsyncing didn't help.

@dsandler For me, error 13019 was stopped by deleting my voice memos.

Drive Genius goes out of its way to prevent me from getting my hands on the updated .dmg file.

The new MobileMe iDisk apps seems to be faster than AirSharing Pro, but overall not as nice.

Testing the final build on PowerPC, so I'm once again reminded how dark those old PowerBook screens were.

@siracusa Displays. But I guess they're not rumorworthy.

@marcoarment Yes, Google is pretty open about Checkout. Opaque and untrustworthy with AdWords, though.

Would it be too much to ask for PayPal's "Payments sent" link to actually go to the list of sent payments rather than the whole list?

@danielpunkass I think you'll like it. May make you question the wisdom of bindings, though.

@leebennett That wouldn't be a useful split for me because I mostly have data, and data is what I want to be fast.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@tbridge Makes sense. Having two volumes can make things complicated, though.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tbridge

@tbridge I'd love to go with SSD, but I want at least 500 GB.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to tbridge

I won't go back to 5400 RPM.

via Twitter for iPhone

@fraserspeirs Would be nice if Macworld had told the RPM and whether it would fit in a MacBook Pro. Still good news, though.

Notes in Mail are actually not too bad, except for the constant (seemingly spurious) errors about saving.

via Twitter for iPhone

I like Trails' cleaner interface and ability to turn off the display, but sometimes I couldn't get the display to come back on. And crashy.

The camera in MotionX-GPS only saves 640x480 versions of your photos. Beware.

via Twitter for iPhone

@mattgemmell That doesn't seem possible. Are there really so few computers sold over $1000?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mattgemmell

@fraserspeirs Doesn't it seem really small after the 30-inch?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to fraserspeirs

@fraserspeirs Yes, I'm shocked that Apple hasn't fixed this since October. Sleeping the display often helps, but sometimes I need to reboot!

@richarmstrong Nevermind; I just got your e-mail. Thanks for looking into this.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to richarmstrong

@richarmstrong Much appreciated. I'm not seeing an e-mail from you, though.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to richarmstrong

I'm still trying to get my head around FogBugz itself. Best Web-based issue tracker I've seen, but hard to give up e-mail and OmniFocus.

via Twitter for iPhone

@richarmstrong My domain is c-command.fogbugz.com. Sometimes it's really quick, but sometimes loading a short case list takes 4 seconds.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to richarmstrong

@justin It seems to work OK. It's kinda slow, but then so is FogBugz itself.

Trying out Inbugz, an iPhone FogBugz client. http://calftrail.com/inb... Seems to work well, but there's no search.

iTunes wouldn't sync with error 13019 until I deleted my voice memos.

via Twitter for iPhone

@pilky Ah, so you mean "resuming work on it." Looks nice.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky "Starting work…coming out towards the end of the summer.…" Are you in the Southern Hemisphere or a super fast coder? :-)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky Perhaps it was intended to be reused for other kinds of views?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky You have more than one Lighthouse app? Is there a forthcoming iPhone version?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky Yeah. Desktop and iPhone apps would make FogBugz interesting to me.

PCalc touch 1.7 is fantastic! 4-line display, HP48-style RPN, faster launching.

Was getting error -50 syncing my iPhone until I deleted Aperture's "iPod Photo Cache".

@leebennett You don't have the MDP connected to a Dual-Link DVI adapter, do you?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@matthewglidden My understanding is that it's a software problem affecting all Macs with mini DisplayPorts. My MBP has an NVIDIA card.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to matthewglidden

@HowardGMac Thanks, but that's for VGA. I'm using Dual-Link DVI. Apple has newer versions of the adapter, but apparently they're even worse.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to HowardGMac

The Mini DisplayPort adapter problems are becoming more frequent. Five times in the past half hour.

via Twitter for iPhone

@mattgemmell Ditto. So I guess either the rumors are wrong or we're missing something.

@snej It seems too yellow to me, compared to the first-gen.

@jonathandann -globallyUniqueString only guarantees unique for the network and doesn't specify the length or what characters will be used.

@pilky Why is the iPod touch more amazing? Thinness?

@gruber A search didn't turn up much. My guess is "paraphrase so I don't have to cite."

What does it mean to do a "write-through" of the source material?

@adamengst If you measure it at 40mpg going 70mph, then yes. I thought you meant that the EPA rated yours at 40mpg going 55mph in 2001.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to adamengst

@adamengst I read that the testing method has changed, so that you have to subtract 5-10mpg from an older car to make the numbers comparable
