@rentzsch You can't even select text in most places.

@sethdill I assume you mean event_mixins.js? Congrats!

via Kiwi in reply to sethdill

Spiffy new animating navbar on apple.com.

via Kiwi

Giving Backupify a try.

via Kiwi

@Fogbugz There's a mobile interface?

via Kiwi

@stevenf I'm really enjoying the Retro Room photos. Ah, memories…

via Kiwi in reply to stevenf

@dnanian You're saying that's normal? USB is supposed to do that?

via Kiwi in reply to dnanian

@joericioppo Mostly running my own helper tools as tasks.

via Kiwi in reply to joericioppo

@grynspan The GCD error is often in releasing a semaphore (various OS-created threads) or cleaning up an NSOperation from NSFileManager.

via Kiwi in reply to grynspan

@grynspan No, the child process isn't crashing, although sometimes NSTask is in the process of raising an exception.

via Kiwi in reply to grynspan

@jfroy I went back to the official version of GitX because it was more reliable…

via Kiwi in reply to jfroy

@eridius I hope so; that would make it easier to work around.

via Kiwi in reply to eridius

@ccgus It's not from using GCD directly but from using NSTask (on 10.6). Dies in [NSThread exit] and such; logs say "BUG IN LIBDISPATCH".

via Kiwi in reply to ccgus

Sick of these weird GCD crashes. Thinking I should just write my own NSTask.

via Kiwi

@iacas I find it easier to overwrite it on purpose and then restore my changed lines via version control.

via Kiwi in reply to iacas

@drewmccormack Put another way, payment and installation are important, but if Bodega came pre-installed in the Dock it would do very well.

via Kiwi in reply to drewmccormack

@drewmccormack No, because the stores go in it. (And the Apple menu, too.)

via Kiwi in reply to drewmccormack

@drewmccormack I thought Apple's main advantage was the Dock.

via Kiwi in reply to drewmccormack

Amazon seems to be getting more aggressive sending me e-mails pushing products related to what I've looked at but never bought.

via Kiwi

@joeldev Agreed, and I guess it's soaking up RAM, too.

via Kiwi in reply to joeldev

@altimac Also, there are Mac App Store issues for some other mail programs due to where files need to be installed.

via Hibari in reply to altimac

@altimac That’s possible, although I’m not sure whether it would be worth the confusion. Most MAS customers probably have Apple Mail.

via Hibari in reply to altimac

@altimac Apple consider's Mail's plug-in interface to be private API. Additionally, MAS apps are forbidden from writing into that folder.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to altimac

@vjl Not only did she break her promise, but she says the bugs would have gone unfixed were it not for the Mac App Store.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to vjl

@dnanian Are you going to try to find one of those reviewers? Or avoiding the store for SuperDuper?

via Twitter for Mac in reply to dnanian

@ianbeck Yes, although problematic if they approve you and then decide to reject later, after some customers have bought the MAS version.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ianbeck

@ianbeck Makes me wonder whether it's worth rolling the dice instead of crippling my app.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ianbeck

@bricooke Well, good for you. I hope they let you keep it in the store.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bricooke

@tjw I asked about that for my apps and was told the filesystem guidelines still applied.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to tjw

How in the world did rooSwitch get approved for the Mac App Store? Isn't its basic job moving other applications' files?

via Twitter for Mac

@retrophisch Apple Mail plug-ins are specifically not allowed. Neither are plug-ins or scripts for other applications.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to retrophisch

@jtamboli @danielpunkass The irony is that I could make a version of SpamSieve that passes the guidelines, but it would be *harder* to use.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jtamboli

@danielpunkass Working on it. Apple won't allow SpamSieve, and my other two apps use encryption. They won't even let me upload a binary yet.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@bbedit Indeed it is. Very clear FAQ, BTW.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bbedit

@cwakamo Hmm, wired aluminum Apple Keyboard here. The behavior does indeed change depending on the fn key preference.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to cwakamo

@bbedit Did you forget to note the root privileges differences?

via Twitter for Mac in reply to bbedit

@danielpunkass You'd think they could afford to add an affordance or two.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@jnouwen @danielpunkass I have standard function keys turned on, so I have to hold fn to get mirroring. So regular Command-F1 should be free

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jnouwen

@cwakamo I don't see that on my Mac. Tweetie and System Preferences both let me assign Command-F1 to other commands.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to cwakamo

@danielpunkass No. I quit Tweetie and also restarted my Mac.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Window > Timeline is Command-1 on my Mac, not Command-F1.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

Trying to figure out why Twitter for Mac won't let me use ⌘F1 as the show/hide shortcut like I could with Tweetie.

via Twitter for Mac

Even though it isn't iTunes, you still can't select and copy text in the Mac App Store. :-(

via Tweetie for Mac

@macfixer Yes, TextWrangler 3.5 won't ask for extra permissions if they're needed to save the file.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to macfixer

@bbedit If I buy you from the Mac App Store, will I get the command-line tools and the ability to save files I don't have permissions for?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to bbedit

@uliwitness Seems a lot more responsive than iTunes, too.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to uliwitness

Interestingly, the App Store replaced my TextWrangler 3.1 in ~/Applications instead of installing a fresh one in /Applications

via Tweetie for Mac

Hey, App Store, BBEdit is supposed to be the top item in my Dock.

via Tweetie for Mac

@kevinhoctor For now? How would you ever migrate if you changed?

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to kevinhoctor

Looks like discounted iTunes gift certificates are out of stock everywhere. Hope you stocked up before the opening of the Mac App Store.

via Tweetie for Mac

It's confusing for an app to show up "installed" if the App Store version has different functionality.

via Tweetie for Mac

@dnanian I don't understand why there's no one-click button to mark as spam and ban the user.

via Tweetie for Mac in reply to dnanian

Record amount of forum spam today. Wondering whether vBulletin 4 makes it easier to delete.
