@nicklockwood No, but thanks for the heads-up.
@gparker Bug ID# 13108298
@danielpunkass I don’t go that far, but I’m still using Xcode 3 for the shipping stuff. Wanted to update it due to random freezes on 10.8.
@danielpunkass Was planning to ship some code that uses ARC relatively soon. Thought it was RFPT. Still have lots of users on 10.6, though.
@danielpunkass I try not to be too snarky, but how can this not even be in their test suite before shipping?
Verified that something broke in Xcode 4.6. An app compiled with ARC crashes on Mac OS X 10.6 if optimizations are on.
@nriley Yup, it’s amazing how much that bug affects.
Clicked on a link in a Mac App Store RSS feed, and it tried to display in iTunes.
I’m no longer using the “Close windows when quitting an application” preference, yet Finder still doesn’t re-open its windows when I reboot.
@nriley I would think USB 3’s advantages would show for random I/O. I think that’s what I’ve seen, and how it worked for FireWire vs. USB 2.
@nriley Hmm, for me it made a huge difference SuperDupering.
Record Apple quarter in revenue and profit (despite lower margins and one fewer week) yet AAPL is down after hours from $514 to $481.
@Catfish_Man Will do; thanks. Seems like this is something they could fix without a major redesign.
@rentzsch I wonder whether they have calculation cells registering for KVO with all the dependent data cells…
@cocoalabs I use the default resolution with an external monitor and 1680x1050 on the go. 1920x1200 makes some things kinda small.
Opened a 4.5 MB CSV file in Numbers in 58 seconds on rMBP. Do a search, it beachballs for 20 seconds. Excel opens it in 1 second.
@luciuskwok Maybe if you dynamically load a bundle rather than weak-linking the framework?
Ah, the joys of typing relative paths into @bbedit’s “Open File By Name” window.
Does Amazon Cloud Player user IAP for purchases? http://t.co/N59MgBLN
@zobskewed That’s interesting. Wonder if Intuit had to rewrite it so that it doesn’t do all that self-updating directly from their servers.
@jgpmolloy Actual typing works OK with an iPad and Bluetooth. But terrible ergonomics when you have to tap anything, which is inevitable.
@jgpmolloy I’d rather not, but it worked OK in the past. OTOH, I could see more and type better on Macs 20 years ago than on iOS today.
iPhone is great. I like the iPad mini, too. But if I had to pick one, I’d keep the rMBP and go back to a Nokia candy bar and a Sony Discman.
@TomEck Thanks for the recommendation. At this point I just want something simple that I’ll remember to use.
It looks like I will be making frequent use TextExpander and of LaunchBar's clipboard history. Not sure what took me so long.
@nriley I thought not, but perhaps I should give it a try.
@nriley Ideally, I’d like it to take effect before the app starts up that far.
Been using Command-Option at launch to show reset/rebuild dialogs, but some users seem to have lots of trouble with this. Better way?
@mikeabdullah Hmm, in retrospect I think you’re right.
@mikeabdullah Seems like the meaning of that would be ambiguous.
@drdrang I like PCalc, but Soulver is nice when you need to re-evaluate the same expression.
@dhh Cool. Time to make more bookshelf space. The dead tree versions actually have pretty good resale value.
@mhenders Maybe things are better now, but I found that CrashPlan was incredibly slow—could only use a fraction of my (slowish) connection.
@mhenders Too bad they aren’t AppleScriptable…
I’m using FastMail.fm to send crash report e-mails since I want them to come “from” the customer’s address. Amazon SES can’t do that.
Amazon SES seems to be working well for sending order- and forum-related e-mails. Relatively easy to set up and great price. DKIM works.
@danwood Check your outlet box first to make sure that it’ll fit.
@eschaton Would like to see the Marathons in the *Mac* App Store.
Whoa, I didn’t realize Amazon SES had an SMTP interface. It sounds like a really good deal.
@tofias I just have it as my homepage in Chrome, since that’s all I use it for. :-)
I still have trouble remembering that Google Docs works better in Chrome (no random freezes) but Gmail works better in Safari (styled text).
@drdrang Yes, since 10.4. I assume the bug is just due to poor design or testing. Don’t really understand why people keep mentioning ICU.
@danielpunkass Right. ICU’s API is a side issue; the real one is that Apple didn’t test.
@iacas As far as I know, what you’re looking for doesn’t exist. vBulletin Forum 4 is good (but not small) if you turn off lots of stuff.
Awful Apple Maps prioritization means that the Yelp app doesn’t show the train station even though it’s a 2-minute walk from my destination.
