@grynspan Yes. What’s new (to me) is that holding down Control, too, disables the smooth scrolling in Tweetbot.

Just discovered that I can press fn-Control-Up (instead of just fn-Up) to Page Up in Tweetbot without smooth scrolling.

@bnastic I’m guessing related to the system disk cache, since other heavy I/O also triggers problem. Not sure why it won’t use the free RAM.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bnastic

@bnastic Retina MacBook Pro, so I think “no.”

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bnastic

@bnastic So something is getting cleared or reset when I reboot, but I’m not sure what.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bnastic

@bnastic I tried purge, and it increased the free RAM by 1 GB but didn’t help Aperture, which wasn’t only using about 2 GB.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bnastic

I don’t understand why restarting the Mac speeds up Aperture so much when I have 4 GB of free RAM.

@vjbridd Yes, but currently I don’t have a way to correlate that with the number of sales.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to vjbridd

@pmcg Maybe. I suppose this will change with Mavericks.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to pmcg

A lower percentage of my Mac App Store customers update to the latest version, even though all of them can and some direct customers can't.

@secboffin Well, CFDictionary.h does say “The access time for a value in the dictionary is guaranteed to be at worst O(N)”.

More appreciation for developer Evan Gross: mjtsai.com/blog/2012/07/1…

Most Mac apps are code signed now. So by default, if a binary is horribly damaged, the OS shouldn’t launch it just to malfunction or crash.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mhenders Yeah, so it won’t be backing up your other files while it’s uploading the big DBs. For me: Arq currently lacks Glacier pruning.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders In this case it’s more than 1 GB of derived files that change each time I launch the app.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

I’ve been wasting time and space backing up ~/Pictures/Aperture Library.aplibrary/Database/apdb/. Aperture can rebuild it from the plists.

@dinhvh That’s too bad, but thanks for explaining.

@jgpmolloy USA, New Hampshire. The address is on a major state highway and is at least 15 years old.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jgpmolloy

@dinhvh I’m not syncing with CardDAV, but I do have contacts in Gmail, and I don’t see them listed anywhere in the Google Maps app.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dinhvh

@jgpmolloy I entered a street address, and it put the dot in completely the wrong place.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jgpmolloy

@dinhvh How do you get Google Maps to sync contacts?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dinhvh

Thought I’d try Apple Maps tonight and save a step copying/pasting from Contacts. It was off by 4 miles. Google Maps was dead-on.

@tofias I’ve got a lot planned for my current apps right now. Once I get that done I’ll see how things look.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias Too bad the system script menu can’t do that. Maybe I should add my own. :-)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias And then it runs it in the context of the current page? Cool!

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias I only use ReadKit with Fever and Pocket, so perhaps it works differently for different services.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias Do you mean NNW 4? I don’t see any bookmarklet stuff in NNW 3.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias Not sure what you’re referring to. I think I just authenticated once per service.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias Do you mean a bookmarklet to add news items?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

@tofias Looks like it may be better at handling network errors, too. Still needs AppleScript support, a non-widescreen mode, etc.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tofias

I like ReadKit’s new option to group items by feed: webinhq.com/blog/brand-new…

@cocoalabs I don’t even need RAID. Just a reliable enclosure that doesn’t randomly disconnect.

All I want for Mavericks is for Apple to fix the bug in Mail that corrupts messages containing large attachments if you view them too early.

eaglefiler EagleFiler 1.6 updates the user interface for Retina, improves performance, viewing, searching, email, and lots more: c-command.com/blog/2013/08/0…

Not sure what’s different about Mavericks, but far more of my customers seem to be running the prerelease builds than with any prior 10.x.

@amitm It does now show a missing image for the Instapaper banner image (in the doc, not the browser). Known issue?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to amitm

@amitm I just reset it for about the 10th time, this time holding the power button for about 40 seconds. Deeper reboot voodoo? Now it works.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to amitm

@amitm Yep, I’ve never been able to load the new Instapaper server on the Kindle. Have tried rebooting. Is there another way to reset it?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to amitm

Archiving from Kindle no longer fails with “Instapaper Has Moved”; now it says “Your Kindle is unable to load the requested page."
