@_ryangoodlett Yep, I did that. It was eventually able to connect but still couldn't send the files.
@atomicbird By "work" I mean that the Mac showed up. Dropping files onto it showed it "waiting" for a long time and then eventually failed.
@atomicbird 2010 MacBook Pro. AirDrop has always worked before. Today, it did work but took a really long time for the newer Mac to show up.
So it looks like with the new AirDrop, you can send from a newer Mac to an older one (if you click Search) but not the reverse.
Looks like 10.10.2 didn't fix the Mail bug with placeholder format strings in the Activity window.
@siegel I mean APIs that used to work and stopped: e.g. in 10.10 your Core Data migration, NSString lossy encoding, NSSharingServicePicker.
@siegel Hmm. I would probably go with stuff that mysteriously stops working.
@siegel While we're dreaming: they could document where a given API is expected to work (sandbox, 32-bit, 64-bit, which OS versions, etc.).
@siegel Great. Thanks for checking!
Does anyone know of an app like RetinaCapture that takes proper 1x screenshots and works with dual-display setups? mjtsai.com/blog/2012/09/1…
Cause of low-disk-space warning: after updating to 10.10.2, iTunes decided to redownload 10+ GB of the Software Engineering Radio podcast.
@siracusa Haha. I'm surprised the menu bar items still aren't reorderable. Seems like it would be a popular feature that's quite doable.
iTunes Connect has been down for about half an hour, but the system status is still green: developer.apple.com/system-status/
@jmfd No. I just reset it, and three apps added themselves. In order of first requests, it's #3, #1, #2. Also not alphabetical by full path.
So what is the order of the apps in the Security & Privacy > Privacy pref pane? Doesn't seem to be alphabetical or date accessed.
Anyone know what happened with the PDF engine in Yosemite? Seems to be slower across all apps and more crashy.
Pick a capitalization: "<old version> Ready for Sale <new version> Waiting For Review"
@marcusramberg Command-line build. Xcode wasn't even open.
Building for the Mac App Store, and codesign can't find the certificate that Keychain Access shows is in there. Delete. Re-copy. Works.
Created a documentDidSave() attachment script for BBEdit to make sure that when I save a property list file the syntax is valid.
@betalogue I wonder whether they even consider the new behavior a bug because otherwise why would it change after many years the other way.
@0xced And some of those mean "name" while others mean "full path"…
@wklj In the sidebar, I'm not sure it's a spotlight issue because clicking on the mailbox temporarily makes it shows the proper count.
@wklj Mail title bar unread counts in Yosemite are solved by relaunching but then quickly disappear again.
Unread counts for Mail smart mailboxes aren't working again. :(
@betalogue It's been that way for several versions now. The new bookmark files embed high-resolution icon data.
@dpcleitao Most of the time I'm at my Mac, and if not I can wait until then to check.
@dpcleitao I have a server rule that moves them to another mailbox, so they never show up in my inbox.
@dpcleitao I like them in my e-mail inbox because they are searchable and I can see the diffs. I don't want to see them in the apps at all.
@nriley Why use Geneva if you’re going to smooth it?
Sue would be nice if the read status of calendar notifications synced between devices. Or better yet turn them off and just read the e-mail.
@jsnell The “.io” is on their About page and in the subject and body of every e-mail newsletter.
@jsnell I think the .io is part of the objc.io magazine's name.
@notio Yeah, wouldn't that be nice.
@notio Yeah. It's unfortunate that the stores can't stock the parts for fixing the bigger problems.
@notio Why not do it by mail? That usually takes less than a week, plus less driving.
@rbrockerhoff I see something like that but quitting Safari fixes it.
@samstigler Yes, it was like that except that option is unchecked.
Weird Yosemite behavior I'd not seen before: screen flashing when volumes not zero and sound outputs are correct. Restarting fixed it.
Dash is a great app. I had no idea it was so successful: blog.kapeli.com/my-year-in-rev…
Something keeps causing CrashPlan Menu Bar to quit with this in Console: "Received `applicationShouldTerminate:` message".

@chockenberry I'm glad that you wrote your post.
Another Yosemite bug: after updating 6 apps via the Mac App Store, 3 of them don't appear in the "Updates Install in the Last 30 Days."
@crashplan Yup, that's where I got the uninstall advice. Thanks, though.
And the other Yosemite (I guess) bug today: my Mac is no longer receiving iMessages.
@crashplan Thanks, but I don't see anything relevant to my issue there.
@oluseyidotinfo AFAIK, Apple does not offer AppleCare beyond 3 years from purchase.
@oluseyidotinfo Great, just as AppleCare for this Mac is ending.
I hate this voodoo, but uninstalling and reinstalling CrashPlan did get its menu bar item working properly again.
@mhenders Yeah, I had to update my DiskWarrior USB stick to boot my current Mac, which made it lose ability to boot older Macs. :-(
My Mac came out of display sleep in a super wide/short resolution, and Displays pref pane only offered TV-style resolutions to pick from.
@leebennett Looking at the code, it seems to do one database transaction per comment…
@leebennett I'm not, but I believe Daniel Chvatik was using Drupal for one of his businesses, so perhaps see who he used.
@leebennett DB server has now been moved to the same data center, and WordPress (no plug-in) deleted the remaining 4,000 in a few seconds.
@leebennett Turns out that after upgrading my Web server it was in a different data center (and coast) than the MySQL server.
@leebennett Yes, but it was really slow. After several hours it had only deleted 8,000 or so spammy comments out of 12,000.
@leebennett I am getting thousands per day, and it was no longer auto-emptying after x days. Manually emptying would time out.
Yosemite and DYMO label printer issues seem to be solved by direct-connecting, no USB hub. Try that on a 12-inch Air… mjtsai.com/blog/2014/12/0…
The Batch Comment Spam Deletion plug-in for WordPress seems to be working, albeit slowly, to empty spam w/o timeout. wordpress.org/plugins/batch-…
@BCiechanowski I have a "sample" from Activity Monitor.
Got back to Mac and Mail was beachballed in Core Animation again.
Used Siri five times in car this afternoon to add OmniFocus actions. Fast responses. Perfect accuracy. Best experience since introduction.
