@_ryangoodlett Yep, I did that. It was eventually able to connect but still couldn't send the files.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to _ryangoodlett

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to atomicbird

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to atomicbird

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.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@siegel I mean APIs that used to work and stopped: e.g. in 10.10 your Core Data migration, NSString lossy encoding, NSSharingServicePicker.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@siegel Hmm. I would probably go with stuff that mysteriously stops working.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@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.).

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.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siracusa

iTunes Connect has been down for about half an hour, but the system status is still green: developer.apple.com/system-status/

via Tweetbot for Mac

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jmfd

So what is the order of the apps in the Security & Privacy > Privacy pref pane? Doesn't seem to be alphabetical or date accessed.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Anyone know what happened with the PDF engine in Yosemite? Seems to be slower across all apps and more crashy.

@marcusramberg Command-line build. Xcode wasn't even open.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to marcusramberg

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.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to betalogue

@0xced And some of those mean "name" while others mean "full path"…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to 0xced

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to wklj

@wklj Mail title bar unread counts in Yosemite are solved by relaunching but then quickly disappear again.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to wklj

Unread counts for Mail smart mailboxes aren't working again. :(

via Tweetbot for Mac

@betalogue It's been that way for several versions now. The new bookmark files embed high-resolution icon data.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to betalogue

@dpcleitao Most of the time I'm at my Mac, and if not I can wait until then to check.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dpcleitao

@dpcleitao I have a server rule that moves them to another mailbox, so they never show up in my inbox.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dpcleitao

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dpcleitao

@nriley Why use Geneva if you’re going to smooth it?

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to nriley

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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jsnell

@jsnell I think the .io is part of the objc.io magazine's name.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@notio Yeah. It's unfortunate that the stores can't stock the parts for fixing the bigger problems.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to notio

@notio Why not do it by mail? That usually takes less than a week, plus less driving.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to notio

@marcoarment Probably right, but it's sad because in my experience Thunderbolt is much more reliable than USB 3: mjtsai.com/blog/2014/06/1…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marcoarment

@rbrockerhoff I see something like that but quitting Safari fixes it.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to rbrockerhoff

@samstigler Yes, it was like that except that option is unchecked.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to samstigler

Weird Yosemite behavior I'd not seen before: screen flashing when volumes not zero and sound outputs are correct. Restarting fixed it.

via Tweetbot for Mac

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 @nickheer True. The reason for doing it that way may not have been a limitation of Lightning itself.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to chockenberry

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."

via Tweetbot for Mac

@crashplan Yup, that's where I got the uninstall advice. Thanks, though.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to crashplan

And the other Yosemite (I guess) bug today: my Mac is no longer receiving iMessages.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@crashplan Thanks, but I don't see anything relevant to my issue there.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to crashplan

@oluseyidotinfo AFAIK, Apple does not offer AppleCare beyond 3 years from purchase.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to oluseyidotinfo

@oluseyidotinfo Great, just as AppleCare for this Mac is ending.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to oluseyidotinfo

I hate this voodoo, but uninstalling and reinstalling CrashPlan did get its menu bar item working properly again.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mhenders Yeah, I had to update my DiskWarrior USB stick to boot my current Mac, which made it lose ability to boot older Macs. :-(

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

@mhenders And just now it came out with the super white screen that @oluseyidotinfo mentioned yesterday.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mhenders

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.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@leebennett Looking at the code, it seems to do one database transaction per comment…

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@leebennett I'm not, but I believe Daniel Chvatik was using Drupal for one of his businesses, so perhaps see who he used.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@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.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Turns out that after upgrading my Web server it was in a different data center (and coast) than the MySQL server.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@leebennett Yes, but it was really slow. After several hours it had only deleted 8,000 or so spammy comments out of 12,000.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

@leebennett I am getting thousands per day, and it was no longer auto-emptying after x days. Manually emptying would time out.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to leebennett

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…

@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.
