@danielpunkass Odd! Let us know if you figure out why it's doing that.

@pilky Cool. I didn't know you could weak-link blocks.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to pilky

@pilky Maybe only use blocks in 64-bit?

@wilshipley Surely that would leave a distinct pattern Apple could detect. Then they'd just apply 3.3.1's "originally written in C" clause.

@peternlewis A file reference URL tracks movement like an FSRef.

BBEdit's ZIP browser informs me that the e-book contains some .png.jpg files. Hmm.

@rentzsch Thanks for the heads-up. I can now download my O'Reilly ebooks, too.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to rentzsch

@gruber My O'Reilly e-book purchases aren't showing up for download, either.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to gruber

@LKM Yeah, I'm not worried. O'Reilly is a reputable company. Odd that my e-mail bounced because their server "failed to parse" the headers.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to LKM

Ordered an ebook from O'Reilly (coupon FAVFA), it doesn't show up in my account, and their support e-mail address bounces.

@leebennett I've been getting AARP promos since my early 20s...

This documentation writing is really messing up my track record of EBS estimates in FogBugz. But the end is in sight.

@BoredAstronaut Sure, but that link is after it tries to sell you on Automator. It could go to the AppleScript Editor page, for example.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to BoredAstronaut

Interesting that http://www.apple.com/app... now redirects to Automator.

@danielpunkass Is there a way to get that toolbar in MarsEdit?

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@nriley Well, the other direction wouldn't work very well. :-)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to nriley

Yes, of course the guy running the old version of the app is the one whose MobileMe account lapsed so that I can't tell him.

@mikeash On the one hand, it's a magical device that's the future of computing. On the other, it's just a little gadget so don't you worry.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mikeash

@mdhughes I agree. Just saying, it's not fear mongering to suggest that you really have no leg to stand on if you clearly violate the rule.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@mdhughes You seem to be saying, don't worry about clearly violating the letter of the agreement because they won't enforce it against you.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@mdhughes RegexKitLite is by definition a translation/compatibility layer atop the APIs in the SDK. (And Engelhart warns about this.)

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@danielpunkass What was his complaint? Seems to me that if you liked MarsEdit 2 you'd like 3, too.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@tristan Checkout, Lightroom, Dropbox, Acorn (parts),...

via web in reply to tristan

@mdhughes Also, if you parse anything other than data, then your app includes code not written in C/JavaScript, so you fail that way, too.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@mdhughes Unrelated to exposing it to the user. If you use a parser generator the parser code wasn't "originally written" in C.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@mdhughes Unless you want to use a parser, or RegexKitLite, or any number of tools that reasonable people would consider proper.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mdhughes

@incanus77 Yes, that's a fine solution if you want to build Mac apps that wouldn't benefit from mobile versions or tie-ins.

@natevw If more join, there will be more potential apps that people won't know about and so can't miss.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to natevw

@mikeash Yes, I see it as proof of moving in the wrong direction, but I guess most people are happy that the reviewing times have decreased.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mikeash

@mikeash The best argument I can see for not caring is that 3.3.1 is just a named subset of the arbitrary power that already existed.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mikeash

@mikeash Well, I think most people see it as just a ban on crummy apps and developers who can't be bothered to learn real languages.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mikeash

Not sure what happened, but FogBugz is once again working properly with Safari and other WebKit browsers. Thanks for filling in, Camino.

via Twitter for iPhone

@mikeash @rentzsch What can the community do? Complain? Granted, I would have liked to see more of that, but Apple holds the cards.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to mikeash

@jpkang Not currently, unless you're a student.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to jpkang

@uliwitness Always wondered why that wasn't called NSExceptions.h...

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to uliwitness

@cocoastream @rentzsch I think this may be a case where it would all fit in a tweet, but I'll see whether I have more to say...

@danielpunkass No identical To/CC. For me, if the To address doesn't match my mailbox name, it puts the To address into the Cc when I reply.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass No, but I've noticed that FogBugz now auto-CCs in an annoying way...

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Agreed. I use some macros to catch unexpected exceptions in action and observer methods, etc.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to danielpunkass

@drewmccormack The one hosting the blog post that you linked to. Was getting hangs and errors. It's working now, though.

via Twitter for iPhone in reply to drewmccormack

@drewmccormack Your server doesn't seem to be responding.

I was skeptical at first, but I'm really liking the new Transfers UI in Transmit 4.

via Twitter for iPhone

Updated to Aperture 3.0.3, but it still gets stuck updating information for sharing previews.
