@McCloudStrife Maybe the Dell one will be better?
@McCloudStrife I already have a regular service. The issue is that the keyboard shortcuts in the Services menu no longer work reliably.
@McCloudStrife How would you invoke it with a hotkey?
@dafacto Not yet but planning to.
@DamienPetrilli Was wondering if was related to the optimization in my recent post…
Flickr is showing thumbnails from other people’s photos in our private album. :(
@lapcatsoftware Multiple windows!
@genadyo Interesting. Was just talking with a normal this morning who didn’t know there was a separate iMessage App Store.
@McCloudStrife Yep, I did see that.
@McCloudStrife Have I seen what?
@Kentzo :( Haven’t seen that one.
@SQLProApp Yeah, will be interesting to see whether the marketing aspect ends up being more important than the recurring revenue.
@McCloudStrife I try the latest stuff at the Microsoft store whenever I go to a mall. Recently used a friend’s laptop, which I think had 10.
@McCloudStrife I would miss Lightroom, though.
@McCloudStrife Only if my job changed and I needed it for that. Otherwise, I would use Linux if I weren’t using a Mac. Never liked Windows.
@fzwob I had very few Mac Bluetooth issues until 10.12.2. Since then, unreliable, with third-party peripherals somewhat better than Apple’s.
@manytricks Very nice.
@grynspan Told fixed, still seeing them.
@vmwarecares Thanks, but I’m not seeing any problems with VMware. I’m just using it to help investigate Apple bugs in macOS.
@apontious Already broken for 6 months or so.
Just verified a bunch of PDF display bugs that were claimed to be fixed. All easily reproducible in a clean VMware with submitted test files
@mulle_nat Apple keyboard also misbehaves with cable. The other keyboards and mice that I like are wireless.
@DrMickeyLauer Hopefully there will be new desktop Macs and I’ll see whether that makes a difference.
@DrMickeyLauer Apple Hardware Test says it is, but no way to be sure. Some of these issues also affect other Macs and VMs.
@maikm Definitely for 10.8, probably once since, but I don’t recall when.
Logitech wireless mouse appears to be dead now. Switched to backup Microsoft mouse. Bluetooth, so it’s spontaneously disconnecting like KB.
@z31r4m I’ve done that and tested the memory, and the hardware seems to be OK. I’ve seen the same Mail crash from other Sierra users.
Services keyboard shortcuts seem to be busted.
@mjdrayton Mine, neither. Keyboard already disconnected once.
Several hard reboots later, macOS 10.12.3 finally installed. Mail crashed on first launch with internal inconsistency exception.
macOS 10.12.3 update stuck at 1 minute remaining for 45 minutes. Can’t remember the last time one of these worked normally.
Archived my old Aperture library. Given that it’s taking all morning just to empty the trash, this should greatly speed up future backups.
Had a bunch of Mac App Store reviews this summer that completed in just hours, but currently at 10 days of waiting for a bug fix update.
@danielpunkass My guess is that what you are doing will percolate down, though. Point is that it’s not only due to your using Python.
@danielpunkass Without that, Jenkins itself would actually see lines out of order, which messed up its parsing of test results.
@danielpunkass Interesting regarding “python -u”. I just drive xcodebuild directly from Jenkins and had to add “NSUnbufferedIO=YES”.
@nickheer Autocorrect seems to have really gone downhill.
@nickheer Yes, I’ve seen it with the Magic Keyboard in wired mode.
@dafacto In my code “expected” means the API returns an error, and “unexpected” means got an exception from API that says it never fails.
@z31r4m How are you cross posting?
@z31r4m Any idea what the regex was?
@z31r4m Thanks. I have an account but never check it because there’s no native client and I don’t know anyone there (except you, I guess).
@Jon_Alper Could be.
@Jon_Alper Agreed. I’m just saying that Apple designed the system in such a way that made this possible. Didn’t have to be a gatekeeper.
@gruber your data. But because they only allow distribution through the App Store, China can compel them with apps.
@gruber The NYT-China situation is of Apple’s making. Apple rightly doesn’t want to be in position where they could be compelled to give up
@McCloudStrife I mean like Python/Ruby where the code works without entering any types.
@geoffhackworth Yeah, hard to believe it ran for 19.5 hours with the backlight on.
@geoffhackworth What does it mean if they do the exact same tests with the bug fix from Apple and get consistent results?
@geoffhackworth It’s also a well-known issue in science to change the number of results collected after you start seeing the data.
@geoffhackworth Except they reported the range of results, not just the 10.
@geoffhackworth Would also damage their credibility if they got surprising results and didn’t publish them. Hope there’s a good explanation.
@geoffhackworth I wonder what the timeline was. They did say that they found the results odd and reported them to Apple before publishing.
@OluseyiSonaiya If they fit you, they really stay in amazingly well. But I hope they make more sizes or license or something.
@geoffhackworth I guess, but why do that when there’s a setting?
@owensd Works for me.
@jgordonshare Yes, interesting considering that they seem to be stretched thin.
@McCloudStrife Couldn’t it be designed to work closed but still work better when open?
@zcichy Yep. If they can’t add buttons, I wonder if it would work to have double-tap do something different for each ear.
@jgordonshare Yep, the LinkedIn story is in my drafts folder. Wonder whether the timing is a coincidence.
@McCloudStrife GPU processor use is virtually zero, according to iStat Menus.
@McCloudStrife I don’t the beachball for no reason, but the fans start up and don’t seem to stop despite low CPU use.
@sdagley Makes sense, but yes the time zone was correct.
@rosyna Yeah, in hotels I plug in my MBP, but that’s messy because it doesn’t like switching iTunes accounts.
@rosyna I was just looking into whether the 4 would solve the problem by letting me pre-download videos.
@rosyna Not for my Apple TV 3.
@rosyna There’s no app, just the command in Settings. I don’t remember what it said—very little info—but the gist was “no problems.”
@dafacto Could be. Does plugging it in help?
@angeldominguez Yes, been like this for years, but only from the Apple TV. Streaming to phone and AirPlaying to TV is super fast.
New TV iPhone app is clunky and then has “Get More Episodes” to bounce me into the store app. I’d rather have an iPod-style set of lists.
@angeldominguez Yep, I tried two Wi-Fi networks and Ethernet, and it was taking 1 hour for a 20 minute show. Every other device is fast.
Even with all the storage, even the Apple TV 4 apparently can’t recache video content. :(
Apple TV again failed to download at reasonable rate, but speed test succeeded and AirPlay from iPhone was fast.
@McCloudStrife Yeah, I had no idea these existed. Seems like a great idea.
@McCloudStrife Yeah, pretty sure it requires USB-C.
@zcichy About the battery or losing them?
@zcichy Right. Seems to not work as well if I leave them outside the case, for faster phone call answering.
@dafacto If the messages aren't in the trash, might be able to find them with View > Show Deleted Messages.
@dafacto Also seeing Bluetooth issues with my replacement Logitech keyboard, but it seems better at reconnecting.
@dafacto Yep, that’s what I’ve been seeing since updating to macOS 10.12.2.
@Ianmurren Lots we don’t know so far. Presumably there’s a big battery.
@jgordonshare Plus, they’ve already effectively brought a lot of it to the US by selling bonds.
@codinghorror Because the software is in a perpetually buggy state and adding unsupported hardware would likely make that worse. Stuck.
@simX Not clear to me whether he’s anti-stickers or just finds the interface confusing.
@BryanPietrzak As far as I am aware, Photos does not sync projects at all. Glad glad to hear that you were not using any dropped templates.
@gruber Also note that Photos couldn’t import lots of iPhoto projects.
@gruber Yes, except for the initial iCloud Photo Library syncing bugs. To me “ready” is more about “can it replace” than stability.
Last few days, macOS 10.12 has been forgetting my Services preferences: re-enabling disabled ones and forgetting my keyboard shortcuts.
@IfMatt Sounds very nice in theory, but I don’t know if I could ever trust it.
@steipete They told you at WWDC that they don’t have tests? That’s surprising on multiple levels.
@z31r4m Does the Enter key (fn+Return) work for you? It sometimes just gives me a Return in Tweetbot.
@steipete Why do you say “no tests”?
@gruber Except that Photos is still missing stuff that iPhoto could do, and the workflow isn’t as smooth, never mind Aperture.
@z31r4m So far, the K811 seems pretty good, although I wish it didn’t need a driver to make the normal function keys work.
@noelc I had just been saving as PDF, but maybe I should write an AppleScript to create a text file.
(Fantastical doesn’t print notes. BusyCal wants me to run an installer.)
Time to make year-end calendar archives, so of course Calendar is crashing when I try to print.
