@siegel @boredzo You can use typeKernelProcessID to target an Apple event by pid_t.

@marcoarment You just have to use the app to remove a computer; doesn’t have to be running on the computer you’re removing.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to marcoarment

@grynspan That works if you want to select the full range of clickable text. The modifier would let you select just the range of interest.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

When in Safari, I still miss how in iCab you could hold down a modifier key to select clickable text without following the link.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@maxwellarm Haha. The weird thing is that the app is only using 2.5 GB, but the system quickly exhausts 16 GB, plus 9 GB compressed.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to maxwellarm

Aperture is faster on Mavericks, but it keeps giving me the “Your system has run out of application memory” window, then I have to reboot.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@simX Yeah. Several people thought SpamSieve was marking the messages that color.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to simX

@simX I’ve gotten bug reports about that. :-(

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to simX

With Mac OS X 10.9 being free, it finally happened: more people are now running my apps on 10.6 (12%) than on 10.7.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@basilshkara Hmm, I wonder if that would explain the Safari text rendering regressions as well: mjtsai.com/blog/2013/10/2…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to basilshkara

Since updating to @tweetbot 1.4 (Mac) the tweet text looks much fainter, hardly any black pixels.

via Tweetbot for Mac

It’s been a while since I’ve used the iOS Kindle app. It seems much improved. X-Ray is pretty neat.

@betalogue That’s one of the things that drives me crazy about Word just about every time I use it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to betalogue

@kevinhoctor Sorry to hear that. You have a great product. Hope you can find a way to get it in the hands of the people who need it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinhoctor

@waleedswagger Do you mean powering off or erasing all content and restoring from backup?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to waleedswagger

Updated to iOS 7.0.4, but my iPhone 5s is still unexpectedly rebooting (SpringBoard crash?) every day.

via Tweetbot for Mac

iCloud Reminders does preserve the order across all of my devices.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Is it supposed to be a feature that the order of iCloud Reminders is different for each user sharing the reminders list?

via Tweetbot for Mac

@dnanian Me, too. Good news is that my scripts still work. (For now?)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dnanian

@dnanian This similar script seems to work fine: tell application "System Events" to get first process whose creator type is "SdPr"

via web in reply to dnanian

My crashes loading Web archives on Mavericks seem to be due to using NSURLRequestReturnCacheDataDontLoad for the cache policy.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@gparker Wow, turning Smart Copy/Paste *on* does fix the extra space selection in Safari. Thanks so much!

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gparker

After restarting my Mac, double-clicking a word only selects the trailing space in Safari (no extensions), not other apps with WebKit.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mcelhearn Not that I’m aware of. Pretty clean system. But it doesn’t happen in a clean VMware. Hmm…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mcelhearn

@mcelhearn It didn’t used to for me, either, but now it does (in the body of the message).

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mcelhearn

In Safari and Mail, is there a way to make double-clicking on a word *not* select the following space? I already have Smart Copy/Paste off.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@fetchguy @notio Concord seems unlikely, and Manchester isn’t that far from the Nashua store. A PowerHouse store would help them serve VT :)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to fetchguy

@jsnell Thanks for the review. Sounds like the right iPad for me.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jsnell

Disconcerting that when I purchase an app on my iPhone, Apple keeps sending e-mails saying that I’d never used that Apple ID on that device.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mpweiher @danielpunkass Interesting. I had tried NSApplicationLoad(), which didn’t help. Will try this. Thanks.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to mpweiher

@danielpunkass My code doesn’t depend on those, but framework code does. Tried swizzling to break dependencies but ran into trouble.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Cocoa likes to call NSUserDefaults, which doesn’t like it when there’s no main .app bundle with an identifier.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass That’s what I’d like to do, but I found that a lot of NSAttributedString stuff will crash if it’s not running inside an app.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@gparker Good idea; if I’m ever near a store I’ll ask. The sensor does accept my finger reliably right after training, though.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gparker

@gparker I’ve tried 5 times with the same thumb, 5 different fingers, 5 different scans of the same thumb, etc. Perhaps related to dryness.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gparker

@siracusa Yes, in Mavericks. :-( Tabs not responding, or even displaying sometimes. Not using Flash, either.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siracusa

@tantramar @leebennett It worked great for me the first day, too. And usually for a while after retraining. Fingers much change over time.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tantramar

@leebennett The thumb-pause would be OK if it worked reliably, but I go through the fail-5-times-type-anyway dance probably 10 times a day.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@retrophisch @gedeon Actually I’ve been working with the Airmail developers lately, and there’s a beta with SpamSieve support.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to retrophisch

Gave up on Touch ID. I was typing my passcode way more often than before (due to no delay), plus all the time spent pausing with thumb.

via Tweetbot for Mac

3.5 years into WebKit2, and Safari still gets borked all the time. Can we just declare this a failure and go back to the version that works?

via Tweetbot for Mac

spamsieve SpamSieve 2.9.11 adds support for “Mail Update for Mavericks 1.0”: c-command.com/blog/2013/11/0…

@edgecasesshow Your Web site seems to be down.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Got what looked like a Notification Center window from the Finder, but Finder doesn’t show in the Notification Center preferences pane.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@leebennett Yeah. I’m glad they didn’t just consider the old redesign done.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

Nice that the new Flickr design no longer hides all the metadata below the fold.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mhenders I only use iPhone ones. Currently I prefer WriteUp.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

The HDR button in the iOS 7 Camera app is in a terrible place. People always hit it by accident when holding the phone to shoot.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@leebennett I don’t think that’s correct, since Numbers controls what it puts on the pasteboard, and it worked with previous versions.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@bwebster I tried that, and was also pasting into a plain text e-mail. The plain seems to be wrong.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bwebster

@leebennett It doesn’t paste properly into other Cocoa apps, either.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

And apparently Numbers ’13 can no longer copy/paste Tab-delimited text to Mail. It works via BBEdit, though!

via Tweetbot for Mac

Numbers ’13 can’t even remember the document zoom and inspector state. :-(

via Tweetbot for Mac

@reppep That stopped working for me with 10.9 until I unchecked “Displays have separate spaces.”

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to reppep

@petermaurer About half were local. IMAP had always been slower but not that slow.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to petermaurer

@mhenders Of course. Why not delete them? Mail really bogs down with large amounts of Mail, as do Spotlight and backups.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

Deleting 20K messages in Apple Mail. This used to take a minute or two. With 10.9, it’s been 30 minutes and still going.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@thomasborowski Yes, 5s. The 4S never crashed with iOS 7 (and barely at all with iOS 6).

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to thomasborowski

@thomasborowski I also haven’t had a device spontaneously crash/reboot this often since the early 90s.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to thomasborowski

After rebooting my phone the clock is now synced up.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@maxwellarm I checked it a few times this morning, and the second hand seemed to be about 45 seconds slower than the status bar clock.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to maxwellarm

The iOS 7 Clock icon shows the time, to the second, but it doesn’t match the time in the status bar! Neither does the World Clock.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@lokiware No, I’ve not seen that before. Please send an e-mail.
