@notio Looks like I didn't fare too badly once I found the right phrase to Google. Will take a while to resync IMAP, though.

The normal Apple Mail database rebuild didn't restore accounts. What did was deleting the Container.plist file in Mail's sandbox container.

@elliotclowes @mailmateapp Yep. Lots to like about MailMate, but I'm not ready to switch.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to elliotclowes

Not sure what happened, but Apple Mail just spontaneously lost all my mail accounts (even though they are still in the prefs file).

Closed comments on a few popular (but old) blog posts, and comment spam cut by 3/4.

@westy2018 What do you mean? The description in iTunes says it edits.

@mattt With that cover, I'm expecting some great footnotes.

@jimmyjamesuk123 You're right. The iPad-specific single apps are much bigger.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jimmyjamesuk123

@jnouwen Probably most of it. But it's relevant since I use neither, and it was filling up my phone.

Microsoft Office for iOS is 58 MB. Pages alone is 266 MB.

@Catfish_Man @boredzo Sounds like great news for all concerned.

@0xced Hasn’t that always been the case with macros back to GCC?

@brentsimmons What if, instead of passing an NSDictionary, you passed a smart object (à la NSCoding) that had the collection methods?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to brentsimmons

@danielpunkass I do that as well, for a backup and for when FogBugz can’t reach server, and also manually Bcc every sent message to myself.

@myvanity Not sure what attachments have to do with it. I’m referring to text that’s hidden even though it’s in both alternatives.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to myvanity

Disappointed that FogBugz still doesn’t handle multipart/mixed. I keep having to check whether I’m only seeing part of the customer e-mail.

@maxwellarm As I recall, the classic version of Nisus Writer supported that.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to maxwellarm

@maxwellarm Haha. Actually, it would be pretty neat to be able to export in a VCS format to record the history of the database.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to maxwellarm

Nice to see that MoneyWell can now export reports as CVS (not just PDF).

@notio When I sort the 10.9 Activity Monitor by Disk, Mail always has by far the most activity. Beats mds, MediaLibraryService, and backups.

@gparker In practice, with the current NSArray implementation, but the documentation does not actually promise that.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to gparker

@basilshkara It’s OK. Just doesn’t seem to be improving and isn’t available on iOS.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to basilshkara

@dinhvh @basilshkara That did not fully solve the problem in my case. Ended up indexing in a separate process that’s short-lived.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to dinhvh

@dinhvh @basilshkara @indragie Did you happen to compare with SQLite FTS?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to dinhvh

@basilshkara I found that SearchKit worked but leaked when indexing.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to basilshkara

@ddribin @brentsimmons Yeah, I think NSConditionLock or a semaphore would be simplest.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to ddribin

@brentsimmons Agreed. (And someMethod does not have to be main thread only.)

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to brentsimmons

@brentsimmons Perhaps worth noting that you can’t use NSLock for that pattern because unlock would be in a different thread than lock.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to brentsimmons

@rosyna I think that was just for digital content, not apps.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rosyna

@dnanian Not great for multiple people accessing the same database.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dnanian

@dnanian True. Although the online version at least makes it easy to work on your data from multiple locations.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dnanian

@hidvorak Didn’t realize you were at Omni. Thanks, at least, for definitively answering that question for the rest of us. :-)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to hidvorak

@hidvorak I don’t believe it ever did. What you cannot do is give a discount on the direct version if purchased previous version in MAS.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to hidvorak

TurboTax is one of the few apps I’ve seen where the Mac App Store version is more expensive than the direct one.

@olebegemann Just certain books? It’s worked for me in the past.
