@kevinwalzer Oh well. The sandbox does work with NSURL, right?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

@kevinwalzer What kind of drag type did you register for?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

@kevinwalzer I thought that was supposed to work. Do you mean drag and drop to the app icon or to a window?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

@rentzsch @dnanian Though in some newer code I’m using NSFileManger with URL resource value prefetching for the keys I want.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rentzsch

@rentzsch Not sure whether @dnanian still uses it, but I believe it was fts that I mentioned. It’s super fast.

I generally find Excel much more pleasant to use than Numbers, but those drawing artifacts when I resize the window…

@michaeldupuis @ccgus @stevenf My phone reboots every day. I thought giving up system utilities was supposed to get us stability in return.

@usethetools @tapbot_paul They only seem to have low-watt equivalents.

@siegel Thanks. I think that’ll come in handy for an aux drive.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to siegel

@tbridge That’s what I have now. I found that it often spontaneously unmounts.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to tbridge

@siegel Have you found a good USB 3 drive dock?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

It’s not in the man page, but “tccutil reset Accessibility” works.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@danielpunkass Yeah, I often need to view/search attached log and plist files. Or test a different configuration in VMware…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@markbaumann I mean when I’m not scrolling and I press the button in the middle. It does the right thing but the animation looks backwards.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to markbaumann

The way Tweetbot loads tweets in the middle of the list makes it looks like it put the new ones below your current position.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@danielpunkass Would be nice, but I haven’t found that iOS has enough screen space to comfortably do tech support with FogBugz.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to danielpunkass

@basilshkara Various people have asked whether it’s OK when the MAS re-signs it. Apple has been silent. But I’m glad it’s working for you.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to basilshkara

@basilshkara I see. What do your end users do? Sounded like @chockenberry says that this can affect them as well.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to basilshkara

@basilshkara Thanks. Do you have to tell your customers to do that? Unfortunately, it didn’t work for me.

Sorry to see that Mac OS X 10.9.1 didn’t fix the “storeagent: Unsigned app” bug that affects testing one’s Mac App Store build.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Looks like 1Password 4.1 did add back the ability to search notes. You have to select Search All Fields in the menu. app-updates.agilebits.com/product_histor…

via Tweetbot for Mac

I can’t believe that 1Password 4.1 still can’t search the contents of its notes, or that virtually none of the reviews mention this.

eaglefiler EagleFiler 1.6.1 improves support for Mavericks tags, works with TextExpander, plus lots of improvements and fixes: c-command.com/blog/2013/12/1…

@ClarkGoble @siegel Same here. But my grandmother has the same issue in Snow Leopard (Mail).

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to ClarkGoble

@sethwillits For me, removing the designated requirements arguments from codesign worked around that. (Though that causes other problems.)

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to sethwillits

@kevinwalzer Sorry to hear that. I wonder how hard it would be to change the directory Tcl uses. Does it use TMPDIR?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

@kevinwalzer Ah, yes. Didn’t this issue already come up for you last year?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

@kevinwalzer I don’t see a compelling reason to use “open” when LS would work, but I would think it’s safe to run it from in the sandbox…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kevinwalzer

spamsieve SpamSieve 2.9.12 works with Mac OS X 10.9.1, improves “Train as Spam” speed, improves Airmail and MailMate support: c-command.com/blog/2013/12/1…

via Hibari (retweeted on 5:50 PM, Dec 16th, 2013 via Hibari)

@cocoadog Thanks. Those are all great apps that I use on a regular basis.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to cocoadog

@jemostrom That’s because Mail’s regular AppleScript is slow in 10.9. Using System Events makes it faster.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jemostrom

System Events takes a while to start up, so Mavericks auto-killing it when it’s idle isn’t the best thing for AppleScript performance.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@danielpunkass I didn’t realize the sandbox was so lenient; assumed it was getting app info from trusted daemons.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass @uliwitness Right, in this particular case, I’m going to recommend that the Airmail guys just precompile their script.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I don’t know. Don’t some apps need to be launched because they provide the dictionary dynamically?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Right. I assume they specifically allow access to /Applications on purpose.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass “Sandbox: Airmail(75741) deny file-read-data /Users/mjt/Documents/Programming/SpamSieve/build/SpamSieve.app” => error -2741.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

So apparently the app sandbox prevents an app from compiling an AppleScript that targets an app that’s not in /Applications.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mjtsai @tullera @danielpunkass @rosyna And the Eudora settings had numbers rather than names.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

@tullera @danielpunkass @rosyna Yes, I got the idea from Eudora. (Though Eudora didn’t put the links in its manual.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to tullera

@danielpunkass @chucker That could work—if you’re allowed the sandbox entitlement.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@mcelhearn @danielpunkass I’m actually not satisfied with that. Those settings will be more easily discovered/explained in the prefs window.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mcelhearn

@danielpunkass @chucker Perhaps. It’s too bad, though, because the system help search engine works pretty well now.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@chucker @danielpunkass Unfortunately, the system help viewer now blocks custom URL schemes. (Not sure whether this is intentional.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to chucker

@danielpunkass Thanks, although now that you posted a screenshot I see a typo. :)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I’ll let you know how many of them can be factored away when I switch to auto layout. :-)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Nice post. At what point is it better to just write the constraints in code, where you can factor out the commonalities?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@bbedit Did you change your download server? It seems to be super fast this afternoon.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@rentzsch MotionX-GPS, Gaia GPS, Maplets if you want to use GPS. Though I tend to use GoodReader with a photo of the relevant paper AMC map.
