@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.
@bnastic Retina MacBook Pro, so I think “no.”
@bnastic So something is getting cleared or reset when I reboot, but I’m not sure what.
@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.
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.
@pmcg Maybe. I suppose this will change with Mavericks.
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)”.

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.
@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.
@mhenders In this case it’s more than 1 GB of derived files that change each time I launch the app.
@mhenders For backups to S3/Glacier: yes.
I’ve been wasting time and space backing up ~/Pictures/Aperture Library.aplibrary/Database/apdb/. Aperture can rebuild it from the plists.
@mrmachinetool Isn’t that dialog Chrome-specific?
@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.
@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.
@jgpmolloy I entered a street address, and it put the dot in completely the wrong place.
@dinhvh How do you get Google Maps to sync contacts?
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 Thanks for your support.
@tofias I’ve got a lot planned for my current apps right now. Once I get that done I’ll see how things look.
@tofias I think that would be fun.
@tofias Too bad the system script menu can’t do that. Maybe I should add my own. :-)
@tofias And then it runs it in the context of the current page? Cool!
@tofias I only use ReadKit with Fever and Pocket, so perhaps it works differently for different services.
@tofias Do you mean NNW 4? I don’t see any bookmarklet stuff in NNW 3.
@tofias Not sure what you’re referring to. I think I just authenticated once per service.
@tofias Do you mean a bookmarklet to add news items?
@tofias Looks like it may be better at handling network errors, too. Still needs AppleScript support, a non-widescreen mode, etc.
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.
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?
@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.
@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?
Archiving from Kindle no longer fails with “Instapaper Has Moved”; now it says “Your Kindle is unable to load the requested page."
