@chockenberry Yes, I'm shocked that Apple still hasn't fixed the various Mini DisplayPort problems.

Well, I'm not sure whether it was my bug or Apple's, but CIPerspectiveTransform behaves differently in Snow Leopard.

@ObjColumnist Probably best to use ([theEvent modifierFlags] & NSCommandKeyMask) == NSCommandKeyMask.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to ObjColumnist

@xctotd Yay! The whole build results pane is so much more usable now.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to xctotd

@dnanian Interesting. I'm seeing the problem (especially with Preview) even when it's not already open.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to dnanian

@ianbeck I'm still testing it, so I'd be interested to see what others find, but early results look pretty good. Acorn's so much faster.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to ianbeck

On the plus side, it looks like the OS's JPEG-writing code has improved to the point that I might be able to replace PSE with Acorn.

via Twitter for iPhone

Oddest thing about Snow Leopard: bulk image opening is buggy in Preview, Photoshop Elements, and Acorn. Sometimes only one or two open.

@leebennett I didn't know about those keyboard shortcuts!

Pleasantly surprised to see a new DiskWarrior today.

So far, the only app I use that's unusable on Snow Leopard is QuickBooks. It crashes every time I try to enter a sale. http://bit.ly/3z9qJq

Liking the new Image Capture app.

@dnanian Actually, the problem seems to be that the 2.6.dmg file contains 2.5.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to dnanian

@dnanian The release notes inside the app package don't seem to be updated for 2.6.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to dnanian

@dnanian Yay! I wouldn't want to run a new OS full-time without SuperDuper.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to dnanian

@fraserspeirs Can't agree there. You still can't put Quick Look in an NSView.

RT @sethdill You may start buying bundles of mac and iphone software to benefit the PMC cancer charity, now. http://blitl.us/zBW9

All of a sudden, I'm getting a bunch of messages from my customers saying "I just updated to Leopard and..."

via Twitter for iPhone

@schwa Are you saying that's a bug in Core Data? Or did you type backwards? I thought -objectWithID: was documented to never return nil.

@leebennett Apple has free shipping with Friday delivery, too.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@leebennett So, with shipping, it works out to the same price as from Apple?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@retrophisch Didn't realize they had more. I have the original in black.

Sped up Terminal opening by deleting /etc/paths.d/git. http://bit.ly/14c3cn

@danwood That would be great. There isn't even a good way to do it programmatically, AFAIK.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danwood

@leebennett It says the *drive* shipped with the June models. I have the same drive.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

@leebennett My MBP is from January, but I have the same hard drive (and, I think, symptoms) as the newer MBPs.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to leebennett

Hmm, the hard drive update says my Mac doesn't need the update.

@backblaze Apparently I misread item 16 on your FAQ. Apologies! I'm glad to hear that Backblaze does handle sparse bundles.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to backblaze

@incanus77 Good idea. I don't see it listed on his site, but I'll check.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to incanus77

Does anyone know who develops the CTLoader input manager (for Safari toolbar extenders)? It seems to be causing problems for @spamsieve.

via Twitter for iPhone

@sethdill Bottom line, I think, is that @siegel is still working on it, and maybe this will pick up some more users dissatisfied with Mail.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to sethdill

Updated the links for Mailsmith's new home.

via Twitter for iPhone

@stevenf It's worrying that Backblaze doesn't backup sparse bundles or say which metadata they copy. CrashPlan seems to offer more control.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to stevenf

@Huperniketes Yes: "@[]" should be used for NSArray literals. :-)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to Huperniketes

Thinking about trying CrashPlan.

I was wondering about these freezes. Didn't hear clicks, though. http://www.macnn.com/art...

@pilky I think state vs. action/behavior is the strongest point. Why should those be separated? I thought OOP was about not exposing state.

@sethdill I discovered the image browser via Acorn's File > Open Folder, but going forward I'll probably use drag and drop or LaunchBar.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to sethdill

Somehow I only just noticed that Acorn has an image browser!

via Twitter for iPhone

@fetjuel And that @gruber uses hyphens as en-dashes. :-)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to fetjuel

@jpkang No info, sorry. I'm using a different Mac for 10.6.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jpkang

@jonathandann How so? It does look like you still need the app if you want to edit the files.

NetNewsWire 3.1.7 is offering me an update to the beta, with the default to accept, but only the "b" to indicate beta status. Not good.
