@mhenders Great app. Between Soulver and OmniOutliner, I rarely need to use a traditional calculator or spreadsheet these days.

@leebennett Hmm, I don’t think I’ve gotten spam to my special LI address. But I do get lots of e-mails from them to other addresses…

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@leebennett I’ve been wondering that, too. I guess you can turn off the e-mails. Plus, you’re not exactly a job-hopper. :-)

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Perhaps you’re using Wi-Fi syncing? This iPhone was set to sync via USB whenever it was connected.

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@leebennett iTunes is supposed to do that automatically before it updates the OS.

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@leebennett At the very least, iTunes should have made an updated backup before it installed iOS 6!

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@danielpunkass Yeah, nothing to salvage there. Possibility that some of them are in Gmail…

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

A friend updated an iPhone to iOS 6 and it wiped out the Contacts from both the Mac and the iPhone. Wasn’t using iCloud. No local backup.

via Hibari

So frustrating that when there’s an error redirecting an e-mail, Apple Mail just silently fails.

via Hibari

@cocoalabs Link says “AccessDenied”.

via Hibari in reply to cocoalabs

@wooster @cjwl And yet PDF.js renders better in some ways, because OS X no longer lets me turn off subpixel anti-aliasing for its renderer.

via Hibari in reply to cjwl

BBEdit’s jump points are so great—when I remember to use them.

via Hibari

@drdrang I can’t believe that bug hasn’t been fixed yet.

via Hibari in reply to drdrang

@joar_at_work Thanks. No way to silence the Notification Center alerts?

via Hibari in reply to joar_at_work

@joar_at_work Where? IMO, closing the notification (rather than clicking a button) should *not* open the MAS app.

via web in reply to joar_at_work

@rob_rix Yeah, NSFastEnumeration can be tricky. Once you get your primitives right, you should have much less need to implement it directly.

via Hibari in reply to rob_rix

@grynspan I’m not saying it’s a good distribution, just that hash(i) != i.

via Hibari in reply to grynspan

@rob_rix I don’t really see how it separates the concerns, but it is pretty neat what it enables for streams.

via Hibari in reply to rob_rix

@grynspan Where do you see that? In the 10.6.8 CF source, I see _CFHashInt() multiplying the int by HASHFACTOR.

via Hibari in reply to grynspan

@0xced Sounds good, although documentation should describe the *intent*. Can I rely on it being case-insensitive in future versions?

via Hibari in reply to 0xced

@0xced It’s not documented, so one could write code that makes invalid assumptions (e.g. about repeats) and therefore gets the wrong result.

via Hibari in reply to 0xced

@0xced That seems convenient but possibly problematic.

via Hibari in reply to 0xced

@rob_rix It would be interesting to hear your motivations for preferring lazy operations.

via Hibari in reply to rob_rix

@thepoch Thanks, but the problem is that setting doesn’t work.

via Hibari in reply to thepoch

@leebennett In Settings you can set the Default Alert Time for Birthdays to 9 AM. I had it set to None. Midnight isn’t even a choice, yet…

via Hibari in reply to leebennett

@dianeoforegon I don’t have such a group in Contacts. I want the date field filled in, just don’t want the alert. (Last resort: use DnD.)

via Hibari in reply to dianeoforegon

@the_soulmen Not my birthday today. I mean that it beeps/vibrates at midnight for the birthday of everyone I know. Since iOS 6, I think.

via Hibari in reply to the_soulmen

I’ve never had birthday alarms enabled on my iPhone, not even showing that calendar, yet it still beeps every birthday at midnight.

via Hibari

@fetchguy You could get them from, e.g., http://t.co/B8GCu04u, instead of your bank.

via Hibari in reply to fetchguy

@Jury CodeRunner seems so simple, yet it’s really useful.

via Hibari in reply to Jury

@CrashPlanHelp Same thing happened twice. Had to re-login. Both times, the error went away after it finished generating the ZIP file.

via Hibari in reply to CrashPlanHelp

@nriley Maybe I should set that up for next time. Is there an easy way to use Back to My Mac when the other Mac has a different Apple ID?

via Hibari in reply to nriley

@rosyna It was in the autosave folder, but TextEdit was not auto-opening it, and screen sharing wasn’t working. So I got it from the backup.

via Hibari in reply to rosyna

(No File:// / URL, just plain text from an RTF document.)

via Hibari

She had said that she was typing the text into Mail and suddenly it disappeared. Turns out, when I paste it into my Mail, it crashes, too!

via Hibari

All in all, @crashplan was successful. Restored unsaved TextEdit document that Grandma had been working on.

via Hibari

Trying to do a Web restore from @crashplan, but got: [{"name":"SYSTEM","description":"Cannot invoke method isDirectory() on null object"}]

via Hibari

Contacts keeps deleting the Middle Name field after I enter it. Oddly, toggling the Company Name checkbox seemed to help.

via Hibari

@wklj That’s the problem. What if I want to use iCloud D&D syncing for Pages but not Mail? (And the Mail checkbox is for something else…)

via Hibari in reply to wklj

@jimcorreia Yeah, lots of people think Mail no longer syncs since the prefs UI was removed with MobileMe.

via Hibari in reply to jimcorreia

@jimcorreia Right. So no way to turn it off for Mail but leave it on for other apps?

via Hibari in reply to jimcorreia

Anyone know how to control iCloud syncing of Apple Mail rules?

via Hibari

@jablair @danielpunkass Yeah. Though in this case I’m surprised there isn’t some sort of pinch gesture to show a third “sec” wheel in Timer.

via Hibari in reply to jablair

@danielpunkass That’s interesting since you can’t do it from the GUI, though I’ve wanted to.

via Hibari in reply to danielpunkass

@schwa I just had a bunch of sandbox bugs, which seem to obviously be bugs, closed as “works as intended,” too.

via Hibari in reply to schwa

@juggularity Ah, you’re right. However, it doesn’t seem to make the annotations available on the Web, like when you purchase from Amazon.

via Hibari in reply to juggularity

@mzarra One reason I like buying the Kindle version from Amazon is that they will synchronize and let me back up my annotations.

via Hibari in reply to mzarra

@mzarra That’s good, but I’m still curious whether it will be available from Amazon. And, if so, would that version include bug fixes?

via Hibari in reply to mzarra

@mzarra Will it be available on Kindle from Amazon?

via Hibari

@brentsimmons Yay, excited to see what you’ll come up with next.

via Hibari in reply to brentsimmons

OmniFocus 2 looks good, although I hope it’s still possible to make very vertically compact action lists…
