@Catfish_Man I like Objective-C syntax. Swift seems easier to type, but I’m used to having my colons aligned…

He didn’t know how to delete it, as the dialog suggested, and was worried that doing so would also delete his data.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mjtsai

My dad, who doesn’t read the blog, just called in a panic because he got the dialog saying that his 1Password is damaged.

@MSch @steipete I'm talking about the bookmarklet for @feedafever. It doesn't seem to see the <link>. Works when I enter the absolute URL.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to MSch

@MSch @steipete Thanks! Feed auto-discovery doesn't seem to work with Fever, but worked when I manually entered the URL.

@grahamwetzler Only other device on that account is a Mac that’s been asleep since last night.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grahamwetzler

@dafacto Nope. :( I sent this last night, and it said delivered, never got there, didn't fall back on SMS, either.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dafacto

Oh, iMessage, why do you insist on saying Delivered when the message never made it to my recipient’s phone?

via Tweetbot for Mac

@danielpunkass I keep thinking back to How Apple Rolls and how they uncharacteristically didn’t in this case. macworld.com/article/115123…

@rosyna No unrealistic optimistic locking VCS joke?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rosyna

Some sort of Finder caching since 10.11 where the preview pane and Get Info don't update the version number of an app after it's updated.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@dokas In other words, in the Organizr there is a command to Add tags to the selected photos, but not to Remove them.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to dokas

@dokas I don't want to remove the tag from all my photos, just the ones uploaded with Lightroom 6.2.

Updated my Standardize Windows script, since El Capitan Finder has a different definition of window size: c-command.com/scripts/finder…

via Tweetbot for Mac

@grynspan Finder only shows Open With if a document is selected, not an app.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

@grynspan I don't want to run the script, though. I just want to edit it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to grynspan

Seemingly no way to drag and drop an applet onto Script Debugger for editing—Gatekeeper error with no override. Can open within SD, though.

Tip: If iOS 9 keeps asking for your password when you try to turn off "Find My iPhone," it may from no Internet rather than mistyping.

@rbrockerhoff I was also surprised that Apple linked to the wrong section of their own guide and didn't highlight the creation date issue.

@jgordonshare I think it’s worth it just for San Francisco. Some big Mail fixes. Otherwise, not a huge deal for most people, probably.

@rbrockerhoff Of course, because corporate wouldn’t go on record. Unclear whether employees were following training or not.

@rbrockerhoff I don't recall having to quit/relaunch until El Capitan.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rbrockerhoff

@BrianSlick I see lots of non-t.co pages in Safari that don't load until I quit and relaunch it.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to BrianSlick

I meant Shift-Spacebar.

via Tweetbot for Mac

Isn't Option-Spacebar in Mail supposed to scroll up a screen instead of scrolling to the top? (Works as expected in Safari.)

via Tweetbot for Mac

@cedricbozzi Thanks. It seems to be a general Safari issue, but that should handle 80% of the cases.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to cedricbozzi

I think I'm restarting Safari about 5x per day now, because it keeps stalling when loading pages (particularly t.co).

via Tweetbot for Mac

@mattstevens Right. My question is, does Apple's sample code implicitly use the current date? (Guess: No. So this wouldn't be a problem.)

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mattstevens

@mattstevens So if you don't check it, it won't falsely cause validation to fail?

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to mattstevens

@mattstevens @tapbot_paul Does that apply to the Mac App Store? It's not mentioned in Apple's sample code.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mattstevens

@morrick Annoying, now that I needed to re-download several apps, that there is no search in the Purchased tab.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to morrick

@siegel @tapbot_paul @reneritchie That was my understanding. I thought when you get App Damaged it doesn't even run your code.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@reneritchie I think @siegel is right. Your OpenSSL/SHA-2 theory would seem to predict that my apps wouldn't launch, but they do.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@pitts_man Yes, but I did not find it very convincing. It’s Xcode 7, not that particular project, that enables side loading.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to pitts_man

@olebegemann Most apps get it right for me, except that iTunes always gets it wrong.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to olebegemann

@olebegemann I was pretty sure there was no API for that, other than the regular NSWindow stuff and user manually assigning apps to spaces.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to olebegemann

Changing the colors makes more of a readability difference than turning the brightness down.

It’s midday, but I’m actually using the Mac version of f.lux now because my eyes are dilated from the doctor’s.

via Tweetbot for Mac

@Dman228 You think the screenshot is fake? I tend to believe it, having seen many crazy Apple Support e-mails that my customers forwarded.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to Dman228

@sf_avi Yes, but since Apple keeps battery life about the same while making the computer thinner, that’s what they’re using the thinness for

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to sf_avi

I updated the MAS post with more tweets and some notes about what Apple Support is telling customers: mjtsai.com/blog/2015/11/1…

@danielpunkass @chockenberry @siegel Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I think the oldest OS I have a problem report from is 10.10.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to danielpunkass

@rbrockerhoff How would one do that? I don’t see a spctl reset command like tccutil. has.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to rbrockerhoff

@siegel Yes, including multiple restarts (they say).

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@siegel That’s a good summary of all the tricks I’ve seen so far, but I’m getting e-mails saying they tried all that and it didn’t work.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@rbrockerhoff @chockenberry @siegel I’m still getting reports from customers for whom password, restarting, and reinstalling all failed.

@notio Thanks for the reminder. Look like somehow the RSS got dropped from my list, or the URL changed, or something.

First occurrence in 10.11 of the Mail bug where a redirected message gets stuck sending until I quit and relaunch.

Having an issue where sometimes iPhone 6s ring/alarm/notification sounds are muffled/distorted. Seems to be software since rebooting helps.

Otherwise, stacks are only accessible via the database, and even then can't be used in a smart collection without a plug-in.
