@boredzo Yeah, I’m pretty sure stat doesn’t work for that. But despite the documentation I don’t think NSURLTotalFileSizeKey does either.

via Hibari in reply to boredzo

@boredzo Cool. What about resource forks?

via Hibari in reply to boredzo

@boredzo BTW, curious why you used readdir instead of fts.

via Hibari in reply to boredzo

@boredzo I was asking since I know “du” doesn’t. It counts the number of blocks.

via Hibari in reply to boredzo

@boredzo Does it handle files that are compressed with HFS+?

@grynspan This window didn’t even exist until QuickTime X in Snow Leopard.

via Hibari in reply to grynspan

Why is the time estimate in QuickTime Player’s export progress blue with an underline? It doesn’t seem to be clickable…

via Hibari

@nriley Actual labels. See my previous twitpic.

@_toddmc Seems good to me. Would be nice to have maps of malls, museums, etc.

via Hibari in reply to _toddmc

When did Flickr reduce the chrome on the Web site? It’s nice.

via Hibari

Just realized that Google has mapped the aisles and restrooms of my local Home Depot.

@command_tab If the directory has contents but there aren’t sufficient permissions to list them, it returns an empty array.

via Hibari in reply to command_tab

Odd that NSFileManager returns an empty array if it can’t read the contents of a directory. Expected an error or a delegate method.

@bbedit_hints What would be an example of when that would be useful?

via Hibari in reply to bbedit_hints

@samstigler 16 GB right now, and it’s full. I’ve ordered a larger card; they’re pretty cheap now.

via Hibari in reply to samstigler

@atomicbird Key document folders and EagleFiler libraries, development and Web site folders, git repositories, most App Support and prefs.

via Hibari in reply to atomicbird

@stormchild Ah, yes, drag the invisible grow box to make the sheet way larger than its parent window. Odd, but at least it works.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild It would be a lot easier if you could resize the Time Machine exclude list view, but it’s part of the System Preferences window…

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

@stormchild Exactly. Would be nice to be able to tell Time Machine what *to* back up, rather than giving it a massive exclude list.

via Hibari in reply to stormchild

Ever since I scaled back Time Machine to only back up key folders to an SD card, it’s been working great.

iTunes 11.0.1 seems to fix some of the Podcasts display glitches.

via Hibari

@gruber My experience is that even if you give Google your contacts data, and log in, you still can’t access it from Google Maps for iPhone.

via Hibari

@smorr I am on the Mac, but not on iPhone. Various articles confirm that on iOS VIPs is limited to the inbox.

via Hibari in reply to smorr

@leebennett I don’t want a single server VIP mailbox. I like how, on the Mac, VIPs is an easily changeable view that cuts across mailboxes.

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@abrahamvegh By server I mean the mail server at DreamHost. They have a nice Web interface on top of what I assume is procmail.

via Hibari in reply to abrahamvegh

VIP mailbox in iOS 6’s Mail is useless for me since it only pulls from inbox. My VIPs are filed into mailboxes at the server level. Oh well.

via Hibari

Kudos to the @1Password developers on a very smooth upgrade process.

via Hibari

@mattgemmell What I mean is that when I take it out of the Dock or turn it on, it starts out at a very low brightness and slowly warms up.

via Hibari in reply to mattgemmell

This iOS 6 slow brightness ramp-up is really annoying. Any way to disable that “feature”?

via Hibari

If Google ends up releasing Maps for iOS, maybe I won’t have to keep looking at that red “1” on my home screen.

via Hibari

Hadn’t checked Mint in a while. Surprised to see that more than twice as many visitors are using Chrome than Firefox. WebKit is about 80%!

via Hibari

@EricFromCanada On second thought, I tried it with a 160K text file with very little markup, and it’s incredibly slow.

via Hibari in reply to EricFromCanada

@EricFromCanada That seems fine here. I wrote my CLM a little differently in order color __, ::, ``, **, and the heading lines.

via Hibari in reply to EricFromCanada

@EricFromCanada Tried it, but it only seems to recognize the first reST heading in each document. I use the style of =’s above and below.

via Hibari in reply to EricFromCanada

@EricFromCanada That was too slow when I wrote it. I use an attachment script to generate (indented) markers for reST functions when saving.

via Hibari in reply to EricFromCanada

@EricFromCanada Cool. I’ll be interested to give that a try. My own reStructuredText module doesn’t scan functions.

via Hibari in reply to EricFromCanada

@mattgemmell For my rMBP, the ghosting didn’t show up until after a few weeks of use.

via Hibari in reply to mattgemmell

@drance Strange that -[NSData bytes] can work using NS_RETURNS_INNER_POINTER but for actual CF objects you must outsmart the optimizer.

via Hibari in reply to drance

@drance That’s a mess. I thought this was a header bug that could easily be fixed. Is there something more subtle going on with ARC?

via Hibari in reply to drance

@bbedit Haha, didn’t answer my real question, but I’m glad to see that 10.5 is there now. It wasn’t when I sent the previous tweet.

via Hibari in reply to bbedit

@bbedit Great release. What’s the prognosis for the MAS version? Seems like you’ve added significant new features to require sandboxing.

via Hibari in reply to bbedit

@danielpunkass @danwood It’s easily fixable, since none of the Samsung screens have that problem.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@danwood That issue is very common with the Retina MBPs. So much expected hassle to get mine fixed that thus far I’ve decided not to.

via Hibari in reply to danwood

Maybe Time Machine will work if I tell it to back up just the most essential, fast changing, files to an SD card. Portable, offline, quiet.

via Hibari

Spending a lot of time managing Arq so that it can upload old files to Glacier in small batches so that there’s time to put new ones in S3.

via Hibari

After what I’d read, I was prepared to dislike iTunes 11. It seems a little crashy, but I like what they’re doing with the interface.

via Hibari

Even with streaming, you still have to buy the other three movies to get “Raiders of the Lost Ark” in HD.

via Hibari

Spent some time with an iPad mini. Very nice. Easy to type. Would rather see it get thinner/lighter than go Retina.
