@CocoaKevin Great. And then you invoked the command-line tool from a shell script build phase?
@CocoaKevin Please do. If it ends up being useful, I’ll see if I can make it easier and write up some instructions.
@CocoaKevin OK, I will investigate that. Probably can just enter the license info via the keys MJTOwnerName2 and MJTSerialNumber2.
@CocoaKevin I haven’t done that. Are you able to edit that user’s defaults? Is the account able to launch apps?
@McCloudStrife Best Macworld Expo demo I ever saw, from Steve himself in a tiny one-Mac booth.
@McCloudStrife TMON, which I never used; and Jasik’s “The Debugger,” which had a really weird and powerful interface. Hope there’s a video…
@McCloudStrife And there was actually a market for third-party debuggers that were better than the built-in one…
@McCloudStrife My first Mac had an actual switch to break into the debugger and maybe get back to the Finder if the system crashed.
@McCloudStrife None taken. I had a good laugh.
@McCloudStrife Also, having used the combination of unprotected memory, system extensions, and a non-journaled filesystem, I’ve seen worse.
@McCloudStrife Probably right, because as many problems as there are, there doesn’t seem to be anything better coming along to replace it.
@NSShadowCat Server down?
@macguitar Glad to here that. Fantastical is one of my favorite apps for Mac and iPhone.
@mcelhearn Hmm. I wonder what the difference is. I am *not* a very fast typist.
@mcelhearn Are you using Icons view? It doesn’t happen for me in there. In List and Columns view it’s happened on all my Macs for years.
@mcelhearn Shouldn’t matter because it should be buffered. Like I said, this worked 25 years ago.
@peternlewis Yes, I guess that’s the problem. We are not actually their customers.
@rosyna No, just HTML.
@mcelhearn Yes. Not sure why the slowness should matter, though.
@rosyna Been away for a while.
@marcoarment Was told I would get that notification but never did. When I finally checked manually, the app had finished processing long ago
@betalogue Yep. :(
@betalogue Yes, that should work. Thanks for reminding me.
@betalogue Preview is an interesting case because I so rarely save changes in it.
@betalogue But, yes, I wish I could turn this feature off. Makes things slow and confusing when I know I don’t want to save any changes.
@betalogue If you check "Ask to keep changes" it should let you revert when closing and then auto-restore the old file and date.
@McCloudStrife It used to be there, and they removed it. Now when I need it I Control-Return into BBEdit, which has a “you are here.”
@McCloudStrife I just wish that Xcode still had a way to show the number for the current line. I never need to see all the numbers at once.
@McCloudStrife Seems like unnecessary clutter to me, given that there is already a command to jump to a particular line.
@nickheer No, but I have Mail notifications turned off.
@McCloudStrife I still like it when it works. It’s still full of bugs.
@McCloudStrife I suppose so. I’ve changed my mind a few times about what that tag should refer to.
@oluseyidotinfo I’m much more critical of the software itself than the business model. But OTOH surely they are related.
@oluseyidotinfo Subscriptions would actually eliminate the problem he had with Acrobat.
@oluseyidotinfo Yep. We’ll see how long that remains true.
@oluseyidotinfo Good point. So do you think most customers are happy (enough), or have no choice, or these charts are lagging indicators?
@Catfish_Man Yeah. What happens if the resource changes type after I create the URL? In general, I can’t prevent that from happening…
@Catfish_Man Similar issue just creating a URL. And in bulk it’s slow even with an SSD.
@t0mat0 No kexts.
No further ideas so I’ll revert to my clone and try to update again.
@ScooterComputer It fixed problems but still won’t boot other than through recovery.
@ScooterComputer Seems like a different issue. I’m just getting lsd crashes that seem to prevent login.
After Disk Utility it now freezes at login with a half progress bar instead of a full one. Or an empty bar in verbose mode.
Disk Utility on recovery partition is fixing volume information. I thought it would do this much earlier in boot automatically.
The system.log in single user mode shows a continuous stream of lsd (launch services) crashes.
@brysonholland I went out for 3 hours and still hung. Something like this happened with 10.11.x before (SIP migration?) but fixed itself.
@willco007 It logs some stuff, then hides the log and gets stuck with the apple and progress bar again.
Main Mac won’t boot after 10.11.4 update. Just freezes with full progress bar after logging in.
@peternlewis That makes sense. I started using NSRA because of problems that emerged with the Process Manager. Seemed unlikely to be fixed.
@peternlewis :( NSRA has been working OK for my limited uses. I’m getting the same error sending an AppleEvents to the Finder.
@olebegemann Happens to me multiple times per day. So annoying.
@andrewabernathy Even if you have Live Photos turned off!
@mcelhearn That would be great. Thanks.
@geoffhackworth That makes sense, although is there really much difference between the prices of MacBooks and high-end iPhones and iPads?
@Bagelturf The path must be fewer than 255, so technically you only get 254!
@bwebster Yes, and I think this can happen implicitly when bridging with Objective-C…
@danielpunkass Nope, Time Machine has always been much slower for local backups, too.
@McCloudStrife No, because I’ve never liked using Windows. I still like the overall way OS X works. Just wish it weren’t so full of bugs.
I wish there were a way to make the system always use the version of San Francisco with monospaced digits. So much text slightly misaligned.
@leebennett I haven’t checked, but probably both.
@daniel_a_a It looks like that may have been what happened because eventually both uploads showed up in iTunes Connect.
@danielpunkass Yeah, I guess either that or wait because sometimes it takes hours for builds to show up in iTunes Connect.
And the API analysis file is too large, like always. I don’t understand how there are over a million apps and this never works smoothly.
Build doesn’t show up in iTunes Connect, but if I upload again it says “Redundant Binary.” So not clear what to do.
Application Loader says it can’t proceed because “an existing transporter instance is currently uploading this package.” News to me.
@rosyna Right. Thanks for reminding me.
@rosyna So are you saying that there can't/shouldn't be alternative fonts?
@AppleSupport Clicking “Review” doesn’t work. I sent more info by DM.
@rosyna Not personally, but from random things I’ve read I thought it was pretty popular.
@JeffNotLapcat True. I see the issue more as iOS no longer being an equal platform in their eyes, which could be trouble for Apple.
@jmfd And anonymous so you can’t contact the customer to provide a fix or get more info.
@jmfd Why not? Seems like they already made changes to the reports for better privacy.
Which reminds me: what is the current best practice for sandboxed apps to access their own crash log files?
@paulhagstrom I wish it were that. I do receive occasional crash reports from MAS customers via my own reporter.
Mac App Store always says “Too few reports have been submitted”. So either store bug, I don’t sell enough, or I don’t ship enough crashers.
@paulhagstrom In theory, Mac App Store developers are supposed to be able to download them, but in 5 years none have been available for me.
iTunes Connect sandbox is again not working for me. I think I have the updated certificates as described here: indiestack.com/2016/01/mac-ap…
@owensd I missed a question, and when I got to the end it was hard to see which one that was when I went back.
@steipete Put it in a macro. :)
@concreteniche I don’t know.
@nickheer I think it's a read error. Sometimes they have me reinsert the card. Or swipe and then insert. Happens for multiple cards.
@nickheer Well, that gives me hope that it can get a lot better. I’m getting errors about 1 in 3 or 4.
@nickheer Does it usually work the first time for you?
@nickheer One cashier was telling me that their new chip reader takes 90 seconds on average.
@nickheer I don’t know. I kept reading about how well it worked in Europe and Canada but was horrified when I actually tried it here.
@rbrockerhoff Yep. OS bug. I had to stop using NSBundle to read the version info because it was returning stale data.
@pmod Based on what? Didn’t this certificate expire on the normal date as planned?
@pmod Right, but in this particular case, how would I be worse off if it weren't signed? (Like installers used to not be.)
@pmod In general, yes. But in this case I downloaded Apple’s installer from Apple’s server over HTTPS. So how is code signing helping me?
@pmod Everything I’ve seen says that in this case it just expired, was not compromised.
@pmod Sorry, not following you. Which certificate do you think was compromised? And how could that endanger the installer I already have?
@pmod In what scenario would it be beneficial securitywise for Apple to disable their own installers that users downloaded from their store?
@pmod Which hiccups do you think are related to compromised certs?
@pmod What exactly is the security angle here?
@bartdorsey Yes, I was able to redownload the installers for 10.7 through 10.11.
@bartdorsey You'll need to redownload them or possibly change your clock when installing.
