@mhenders No, didn't win the ticket lottery. (And right now it's probably best for me to stay firmly planted in front of Xcode, anyway. :-)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Also, you can only reorder in projects, not contexts, so I like my projects to be of like items, not relying on contexts to group.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Right, I don't mix like that. (I did for a couple years but found that it was more work to micromanage the context assignments.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders I have several projects of those, in rough priority order. Sequential so only one item is available, and sometimes even deferred.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Yes, the best/worst part of OF is that it's so flexible. I use a not-really-GTD system that works for me. It's still evolving.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Several ways: different contexts, different project types, defer/due dates, flags. Takes a while to come up with a system.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Yes. There are some annoyances, but I like it much better than I expected to.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders It doesn't seem to be very time consuming. If I'm out, I enter from the receipt (or OmniFocus note if no receipt) when I get home.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Yes (like an animal). As they happen. Otherwise it's just skimming, not reconciling, and no way to see what's outstanding.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders I don't think I have many vendors that map cleanly. For instance, I might buy toilet paper at the grocery store or milk at CVS.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders And if you aren't entering the information yourself, it's just "reconciling" against the institution's own data.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Automatic download has never made sense to me. It will never be smart enough to categorize everything properly.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders In MoneyWell I have separate buckets for Household Supplies and Clothing.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders Those apps don't let you assign a category/bucket to each transaction?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@malcolmbastien @kcase Don't forget place Space to complete an action.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to malcolmbastien

Amazon's "Manage Your Content & Devices" page is getting better, but it can only perform actions on 10 items at once.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@bavarious Yup, those are pretty much what I was seeing.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bavarious

@bavarious I was using the bison that comes with Xcode, which seems to be from 2006.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bavarious

@bavarious I guess the proper fix here would be to file bugs against bison so that its generated code doesn't trip up clang.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bavarious

@bavarious I didn't find a good way. The .ym file doesn't change often, so I added the derived file to the project and set its warnings. :(

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bavarious

@bavarious I recently had a reverse Apple glow moment trying to adjust the warnings Xcode uses when compiling generated yacc files.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bavarious

@rentzsch Fixed; thanks. (But which browser are you using? It worked OK for me with 2 slashes, which is what's in his feed.) /cc: @dev_etc

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rentzsch

@nriley That does sound a bit odd. I typically have the whole action selected, i.e. it's not in edit mode.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nriley

@nriley Services work for selected text (within an action's name or its notes), but not selected actions.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to nriley

In OmniFocus 2, system services no longer work with selected actions, so I wrote a script for opening URLs in them: c-command.com/scripts/omnifo…

via Tweetbot for Mac

@discourse Yeah, I had found this topic a while ago. meta.discourse.org/t/format-for-h… Not sure what else there is to say.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to discourse

@discourse Yeah, that's not what I'm looking for. I want to see the topic and use in-page search to jump around.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to discourse

@discourse What's the best way to report issues? In your forum?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to discourse

@discourse @kcase The problem I'm seeing is that even if the whole page is loaded, it unloads the offscreen parts so they can't be accessed.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to discourse

Here's a script to defer the selected OmniFocus actions until tomorrow. With hotkey, easier than clicking +1 button. c-command.com/scripts/omnifo…

via Tweetbot for Mac

Liking some of the changes in the @FogBugz UI update, but Helvetica isn't the most readable on non-Retina displays.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@kcase Understood. Maybe you can convince @discourse to fix them. :-)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kcase

@cparnot I never got a notification from them about the breach. Nothing even when I logged in.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to cparnot

Related, the HDR Auto feature is very conservative about when to use HDR. It usually won't even with bright window behind a dark foreground.

via Tweetbot for Mac

8 months after iOS 7 shipped, the Camera app still can't remember that I set HDR to On. discussions.apple.com/thread/5485315

via Tweetbot for Mac

@kcase @discourse Select All + Copy text doesn't work. Instapaper doesn't work. Wanted to like it, but feels like my Web browser is broken.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kcase

@kcase @discourse Sorry to hear that. I find Discourse hard to use. "Find in page" doesn't work, nor does saving page as Web archive or PDF.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to kcase

@backblaze This page suggests that creation dates, xattrs, Finder flags, symlinks are not backed up. Still accurate? haystacksoftware.com/arq/backblaze-…

Why in Flickr's newish design does clicking a tag not show your other private photos with that tag, but rather do a fruitless public search?

via Tweetbot for Mac

@roustem Why are you looking at Web visitors rather than people running your app?

spamsieve SpamSieve 2.9.14 adds support for Mac OS X 10.9.3, improves filtering accuracy, documentation, and more: c-command.com/blog/2014/05/1…

@danielpunkass I think there was also a difference simply when accessing lots of files, though I don't recall the specifics at the moment.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Sure they do, e.g. if you have an open/save panel with a delegate.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass Like I said, it sounds good. But the current implementation is full of bugs and limitations, plus performance penalties.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass OK then. I don't recall ever seeing that with my apps or others, except for the notorious Apple installer that hated spaces.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@danielpunkass I agree that safety net makes sense in theory, but have you ever actually seen a case where it would have helped?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@jmfd I did, too. But that doesn't seem like a good reason for the System Status to say that it's up.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jmfd

iTunes Connect is down, but Apple Developer System Status is not showing that. developer.apple.com/system-status/

eaglefiler EagleFiler 1.6.2 includes lots of enhancements, fixes, and optimizations: c-command.com/blog/2014/05/1…

@drance And now when I hand my phone to someone to take a photo, it often inadvertently comes out square.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to drance

@siegel That probably makes more sense now that Xcode has so many other -Return shortcuts for opening editors.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@siegel Well, at least I can bind Control-Command-B to Open with Guess-What.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

Seems like there's still no way in Xcode 5 to get the frontmost file via AppleScript.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Wonder why sdp generates "- (void) copy NS_RETURNS_NOT_RETAINED;". Even the compiler thinks this is weird.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@betalogue Right. And the order in the left column is alphabetical within each account type (IMAP, Exchange, etc.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to betalogue

It doesn't look like 10.6.8's Apple Mail uses garbage collection, but maybe a early developer seed did?

via Tweetbot for Mac

Trying to remember why I added "GCC_ENABLE_OBJC_GC = supported" for SpamSieve's Apple Mail plug-in in 2008.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@betalogue Yes, only alphabetical within each account type?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to betalogue

@betalogue I think it's just alphabetical by account description and then, within the account, the order that you entered its addresses in.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to betalogue

@stormchild Yeah, I was surprised at how poorly it worked.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to stormchild

@alldritt My condolences to you and your family. I'm so sorry for your loss.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@peternlewis Not sure. I’ve gotten that error in apps that didn’t call any libdispatch APIs…

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to peternlewis

@peternlewis I still get those, though less often with recent versions of OS X.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to peternlewis

Trying to report a bug in Apple Maps, but the feature to drag the pin to the correct location doesn't actually let me drag the pin. :-(

via Tweetbot for Mac

@bjhomer @boredzo Interesting that because Command is part of the shortcut, it opens in a new tab.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to bjhomer

Amusingly, the same trick works around both APIs that over-release and APIs that leak.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Good thing we're still allowed to spawn helper processes.

via Tweetbot for Mac

WebKit crashing because it's accessing an object that it released. Running in a short-lived helper process, so I'll just not drain the pool.
