Wow, Amazon’s buttons are flat now.
@nickheer Support told me in September that this was a high priority to fix. :(
@mjtsai This is for both the time estimated and the failure message. The only thing that seems to happen when I click it is that it jiggles.
There also seems to be a QuickTime Player bug where exports fail with a permissions error if movie window closed before done. Sandboxing?
Why does QuickTime Player use blue-underlined text in its Export Progress window?

@griotspeak if they can’t make the basic functionality work, what makes you think they can design something for proper subclassing?
@atomicbird The documentation says that propertiesToGroupBy supports expressions. Does that not work?
Ran into this easter egg a few times before I figured out which app was causing it. support.iconfactory.com/discussions/qu…
@drewcrawford How do you get system frameworks out in the open?
@_danielhall "don’t worry, because the new versions…will enable" Sounded to me like they specifically don't want to enable that.
What about large numbers of smaller bugs? With a fixed schedule, it's just not possible to take care of them all before release.
@roopeshchander Yes, but only overridable within your code, right?
@roopeshchander Pretty sure that’s less flexible, though I’m not super familiar with how protocols work under the hood.
@roopeshchander Eventually they’re going to want frameworks that take advantage of Swift features that don’t work with Objective-C.
@nuoji But MVVM, like MVC, is not a full solution for how to structure your code, neatly into three buckets.
@nuoji I think view models are fine as one tool to make code a bit more testable and organized.
@nickheer The app itself isn't very big, anyway.
@bwebster Wonder why this one has been around so long.
@jckarter Just used swizzling to work around a CorePDF crash. I’m not a fan of scar tissue, but it’s better than crashing.
@lucvandal Last few builds it's typically taken about 5 hours for me.
@nickheer Fixed; thanks!
@rgigger Most of the dynamic stuff he wants is already there. The language can't do both simultaneously; it's clear what their choice is.
@rgigger No. Do you think that would help? My impression is that making it static was one of their design goals.
I see a lot of complaints about AirDrop between Mac and iOS, but it’s been solid for me lately.
Here’s a script for choosing the sending account in Mail since keyboard shortcuts for the menu are broken in 10.11.2 c-command.com/scripts/mail/s…
@jckarter That’s why I said temporary. Long-term, in theory the bug will be fixed, but in the meantime things are broken.
@jckarter It’s not future proof, but it works great for debugging or temporarily working around a framework bug.
@jckarter Not when my program is linking to code that already has the dynamism compiled out.
You can tell Swift is fundamentally static because otherwise there couldn’t even be talk about the compiler optimizing the dynamic parts.

Suddenly seeing a bunch of NSInvalidArgumentExceptions for -[NSFileManager fileSystemRepresentationWithPath:] for the first time.
@alanthonyc Yeah, it's been doing that with me for iMessage (other Apple ID) for a while now.
@joesteel First suggestion was to throw away this Apple ID and create a new one, even though all my developer stuff is attached to it. :(
@mjtsai And, an hour later, Apple support is stumped but hopes to have a solution within 24 hours.
Filled out the form to change it to an e-mail address, but then nothing happens.
Can't get app-specific password because appleid.apple.com suddenly requires that my Apple ID be an e-mail address instead of a name.
Can't submit to the Mac App Store because Application Loader needs app-specific password.
@nickheer Organizations do. Multiple employees have used the same Mac. Someones one of them leaves. No way that I can look it up for them.
Mac App Store doesn’t eliminate licensing problems. Customer can’t remember which Apple ID was used to purchase app, so can’t redownload it.
Apple receipt shows the wrong device name that purchased apps from the App Store.
I love posts like this: omnigroup.com/developer/impl…
@bogo_lode Then why do they always work in Chrome and also work in Safari after I restart it?
@siracusa Yep, that’s toll-free.
Can't quit Safari to make those t.co links load because Xcode is downloading.
@grantosborne Thanks for the pointer. Good episode. Things are going well here. Hope they are for you as well.
@_karsten_ I've read that it works better if all the Macs update to 10.10 or 10.11, but some of these can't. Used to work great.
@_karsten_ I don't know what's going on. One Mac hangs with the spinner while connecting. Other one can chat and video but not screenshare.
OS X built-in screen sharing through Messages has been really flaky the last few years. Giving @edovia’s Screens a try.
@ddribin Just had a Cree bulb with a 10-year warranty die after 8 months. Another is flickering. Hard to actually use the warranty.
Actually, the new messages showed up *before* I took Mail back online.
That thing where you take 10.11’s Mail offline and then online and instantly see lots of new messages that should have shown up hours ago.
I added some responses to the post about Sketch leaving the Mac App Store: mjtsai.com/blog/2015/12/0…
