@kevinwalzer That said, sometimes they will refund an incident if it’s clearly due to an OS bug and they can’t offer a workaround.
@soryu2 No. Which one? I don’t see anything unusual in the logs.
@avi4now ZFS is a good start, but I’m not sure that it can do self-healing from a mirror drive that’s been offline for a while.
@avi4now I mean that the filesystem could detect files/blocks that no longer checksum, and clone/heal with intermittently connected drives.
Bit rot detected on one of my archive drives. Copying good file from a redundant drive. Would be nice to solve this at the FS level, though.
@kevinwalzer That’s just how it works. Most of the support incidents that I file end up being not my fault, but you’re paying for DTS time.
@bwebster I create a new case in the product’s project and refer to the inquiry (and any future inquiries) in the inbox project.
@kevinwalzer I did, because the iTunes people would only look into this when prompted through DTS. I typically have extra incidents, though.
@kevinwalzer I’ve been working through this with DTS, and it looks like the fix was just rolled out on iTunes Connect.
If you update to vBulletin 4.2 and freak out at the new homepage: you can turn it off in the Navigation Manager. https://t.co/HVdCNqoi
@stormchild Siri’s accuracy is good enough that I would use it to take notes in certain circumstances. Problem is availability/reliability.
@WriteUpApp Great! I look forward to trying it out.
@prasannag WriteUp 3 looks nice. Is there a Web page listing the changes that I can link to? (Last blog post is from July 2011.)
@siracusa Selectable text first. :)
@bwebster Yes, I know because people complained when a DropDMG Automator action stopped working on an older OS (due to -fobjc-gc).
@uliwitness You’re supposed to unplug all devices before running Apple Hardware Test. Newer Macs can run it via the Internet.
The recovery partition is great, but it looks like I have to burn a DVD to run Apple Hardware Test.
@mmunz In hindsight, it’s not clear to me that working on Mac App Store stuff was a better ROI than regular dev work. Certainly was less fun
@ccgus Same here. It also works to use a nib compiled on 10.7.3.
@ccgus No crashes. I’m getting solid white for the very first displayed page. And occasional 80-pixel black squares drawn atop the content.
Setting the view, in code, to not draw concurrently has no effect, but [window setAllowsConcurrentViewDrawing:NO] fixes the problem.
PDF display bugs on 10.7.4 seem to be due to ibtool silently setting the PDFDisplayView in the nib to draw concurrently.
@petermaurer Perhaps. Is hope improvement or the lack of further regression?
@danielpunkass Crickets in the dev forums, though.
@kevinwalzer iTunes Connect support sent me to App Review, who told me to file a DTS incident. I’ll let you know what I hear.
@kevinwalzer It’s saying that several files/folders in a bundled framework should be replaced by symlinks.
Updated my hotkey-using app 8 days go, but the MAS version isn’t even “Waiting for Review” yet due to a bug in the automated binary checker.
Depressing hotkey reactions: lack of surprise, this’ll protect us from malware, it’s OK because you can just download apps outside the store
@chuanp I remember that one. “My first impression of the game was the 7 MB download size.” :-)
@preppeller When I’ve encountered OS leaks like that, I put the API calls in a short-lived helper process. Kernel cleans up when done.
@danielpunkass Unusual, yes. But I’m tracking three different UI glitches introduced by 10.7.4.
There seems to be some PDFView weirdness depending on whether the same code was compiled on Mac OS X 10.7.3 or 10.7.4 (10.6 SDK, GCC 4.0).
@danielpunkass Yes, it’s great now that the e-mails contain the post body. Can make Mail rules to flag posts of interest.
@siegel Also running into a problem with PDFViews starting out solid white.
On the plus side, it looks like WebKit’s PDF link generation, broken since July, is now fixed. https://t.co/lbmA0qgB
@siegel -[NSWorkspace iconForFileType:] is broken for at least one system file type. But getting a path’s icon works. rdar://11421092
Always lovely to have a new OS come out and introduce an ugly bug hours after you ship an app.
@macgeek02 The link in your blog post says “htttp”.
@CodingJournal Clean install of Mac OS X 10.7.3.
@stormchild Yes, and it can auto switch when you plug in the display.
@mikemccracken VMware 4.1.1, fresh installation of Mac OS X 10.7.3, no 3rd-party software except EagleFiler. Just created a bunch of files.
@mikemccracken Just ad hoc.
The supposedly 50 MB “incremental” iOS 5.1.1 update is 802.8 MB for me. I wonder if that’s because I had deleted the previous .ipsw file.
Google Drive seems to be a bust. 30 seconds to sync each 135-byte test file. Doesn’t preserve metadata. Console errors about missing pool.
@danielpunkass My sympathies. Something like that happened to me once, and it was also on a weekend.
@danielpunkass If only there were a utility that could listen for a hotkey, run an AppleScript, and send the source to your favorite editor.
Not sure what happened, but hiutil now takes a couple minutes to index my Apple Help where it used to take seconds.
@danielpunkass You forgot reading good code.
