Looks like macOS 10.12.4 update signed me out of Messages without telling me.
@EggFreckles Me, too.
@EggFreckles The page I linked to says that the behavior changed with 10.12.4. Before that, it was the version that came with your Mac.
@tedsvo Ah, yes, years later I still forget about those buttons that are hidden until you scroll.
@sawlls My understanding is that lets you see the SSD’s own diagnostics but doesn’t itself test the media.
@charlesismcom You now have a choice of versions.
@sawlls Oh, I’ve checked it with Disk Utility. The issue is that I know there are lots of problems Disk Utility can’t detect.
@sawlls Check how?
The new Internet Recovery worked great and got me a macOS 10.12.4 installation that finished booting.
Swift 3.1 update went well. Just a few bridging changes and all tests pass.
@sawlls SSD. Could be, I suppose. How to be sure?
@EggFreckles Yes. Different modifiers for different versions.
Trying the new Command-Option-R recovery to reinstall the latest OS.
And the main Mac, which recently had a clean install, got stuck completing the 10.12.4 update and now won’t boot.
@nriley I thought they had a mail relay to keep your address private. :(
@nriley How do you think they got it?
@lapcatsoftware At least they won’t make you migrate your file system to get the next round of fixes.
@lapcatsoftware For my external drives.
Updated to macOS 10.12. Keychain forgot stuff for FileVault, Tweetbot, Hibari, Arq. And some sort of 1Password problem that it self-fixed.
@iljawascoding Code completion shows off the type system.
@iljawascoding I would settle for being able to make it through one coding session without the syntax highlighting getting messed up.
@fzwob Maybe you could mount a disk image at the right place in the Mac file system?
@joely Rough guess: probably. But I haven’t looked into that at all.
@schwa Really? Pretty much all the ones I’ve seen have been sandboxing or general frustration.
@McCloudStrife Nope. That's interesting—thanks.
@tclementdev Interesting. But I don’t think the app can set those sort of preferences. They have to be enabled in a file outside of ~/.
@lapcatsoftware Isn’t os_log great?
@mcelhearn Kindle 3/Keyboard. So it’s a huge step up. I can see a Voyage making sense if you don’t want a case.
@mcelhearn And the asymmetry gives lots of room to hold it without covering screen with fingers.
@mcelhearn The battery pack is perfect for me because I just store it in the cover. No need to hold the battery when reading.
@mcelhearn The lightness/shape make me so happy. Even more than I expected. Most pleasing hardware change for me in many years.
@mcelhearn I saw some reviews mentioning streaks. Sounds like you had a lemon.
@mcelhearn My Oasis has both Futura and OpenDyslexic. I haven’t had any problems with the lighting. Battery with light plenty for 1 session.
@mcelhearn How many sizes do you have to choose from? I have 8 and use second-smallest in Bookerly.
@mcelhearn I just counted, and Oasis has 10 fonts vs. 8 in iOS app. iOS app’s extra sizes seem to be on the huge end, so would never use.
@mcelhearn Main iOS Kindle advantages: interface speed, color highlights.
@mcelhearn iOS (and Mac) apps also have buggy collection syncing with the cloud.
@mcelhearn Wow, I totally disagree. Typography seems equivalent. Kindle has more fonts. More features. Better support for collections.
@mcelhearn I thought Amazon‘s typography engine was equally so-so in the iOS app. Or are you talking about the screen?
@dafacto Oasis. I’ll try to blog about it soon.
Really glad I bought that Kindle instead of waiting for a lighter iPad mini.
@jablair Don’t forget the mandatory sysdiagnose. :)
@owensd Interesting about the buggy TB, though. Haven’t read much about that. Assumed the simulator bugs I was seeing were simulator issues.
@owensd Hoping my 2012 can last a while longer. If it dies, I’d get used or the non-TB one that’s not even on the specs page. :(
@jablair But if it’s related, perhaps you’re looking at a WebKit issue rather than a PDFKit one.
@jablair I think I did see that a few years ago, but it pertained to opening messages in separate windows. I don’t save e-mails to PDF.
@jablair I’ve seen issues where -runOperation returns before the PDF has been fully saved. Not new with Sierra.
@sunildvr Not that I’m aware of.
@NSExceptional I realize that’s the current plan, but that doesn’t mean it will only be used for that purpose.
@lapcatsoftware It was necessary to have different spellings, not necessary to have different implementations.
@lapcatsoftware Yep. There will probably never be more parity than there is now.
@lapcatsoftware Right, but they don’t need to do that.
@lapcatsoftware But presumably the APIs will diverge unless they want to forever limit SwiftFoundation to what Objective-C can do.
@lapcatsoftware It could if they wanted to vend an Objective-C API.
@lapcatsoftware And I thought we were taking about implementations, not API.
@lapcatsoftware Agreed, but only because one appends “Ref”, and I’m not sure how this is relevant…
@lapcatsoftware Maybe at some point they’ll re-unify by having the Objective-C version wrap the Swift.
@lapcatsoftware And it’s not as though the CF and NS stuff was fully unified, anyway. One has wrapped the other, switched. Duplicate imples.
@lapcatsoftware Yeah, not ideal. But if they really are serious about Swift, it *should* be used to write this stuff, not wrapping ObjC.
@lapcatsoftware How would you introduce the parallel structs without removing the NS?
@lapcatsoftware Yes, but it’s better than having a totally separate solution for Swift on other platforms.
@DanFrakes Looks great. Thanks!
@isaiah I bet it will be a popular Hackintosh.
@jckarter Very interesting. Thanks.
@jckarter But it sounds like they had much better results with a previous version of the compiler, unless you’re saying kernel regressed.
@ameaijou How so? I saw people say that, but when I tried it it seemed to work…
@dori So sorry for your loss.
@peternlewis I haven’t tried it because I don’t have any iOS xibs.
@McCloudStrife Are things better now? Or have you not had problems with airline apps?
@lapcatsoftware Yes. Code reusability and switching delegate to change behavior.
@petermaurer Interesting. Doesn’t seem to apply to osacompile.
@fzwob I have a menu command in my apps that does something like that. Works but unbelievably slow.
@z31r4m I think I already linked to that.
@stormchild I’ve heard that it no longer works.
@iTod Not the type of tokenization I need, but it looks cool.
@McCloudStrife It’s been almost 10 years, so who knows whether Apple will ever do it.
@McCloudStrife That would be fine, too, but since the OS can’t do that now, apps need to implement themselves.
@EggFreckles There have always been issues, but I have never seen so much breakage as with Sierra.
Filed as Radar 30951820.
@wklj I’m actually having problems with Mail search, too. Not sure whether it’s related.
Some words are broken into pieces. Some phrases joined into a single term. Indexes whitespace and punctuation, which should be ignored.
Looks like SearchKit’s tokenizer is completely broken on macOS 10.12.3.
@DonovanBond Yeah, I don’t like it as much as I remembered.
@dssstrkl My MBP is on an arm as well, about a foot off the desk, though I’ve also had problems with an MBA that’s on the desk.
@freshapplenews Haven’t tried it, but these days I like narrow, low-profile keyboards.
@macfixer I find the travel too short.
After switching back to the Magic Keyboard, it’s apparent just how much better the K811 and even the old aluminum Apple keyboard feel.
@jordanmerrick Aha. Seems to work for me via USB if I unpair it in the Bluetooth pref pane. Otherwise, I was getting the same disconnections
@jordanmerrick I was not able to get the Magic Keyboard to work reliably over USB, either. Does it work for you with BT off?
@addisonwebb Surprising how much I miss fn and the dual-purpose function keys.
AirPods somehow unpaired from my phone, and when I opened the case it saw them but thought they weren’t mine.
@command_tab Maybe, but the color sequence didn’t match that, and you’d think support would know if there was a recent update.
@Gryzor Right, I see a lag, but it doesn’t get stuck like the other cases.
@Gryzor I haven’t been able to reproduce the StackExchange logo one, even moving slowly.
@dafacto That happened a lot (often with the Delete key) when I was using the Apple keyboard. Currently using Logitech, which just stops.
@pgor That sometimes fixes it. Resetting Bluetooth (Option-Shift) sometimes fixes it. Sometimes resetting is the only way.
Restarting the Mac again because my Bluetooth keyboard stopped working for the 4th time today.
@rgigger That’s a feature. :-) I want them to make phones that are more comfortable to hold rather than thinner.
@rgigger My understanding is that it’s only very slightly thicker.
@rjonesy Much better screen. Fits in my back jeans pocket. I doubt my iPad will get much use now.
@rjonesy Well, I am updating from a Kindle 3, which I had stopped using. Oasis is much faster. Impossibly small and comfortable to hold.
@rjonesy Kindle Oasis. Before that, AirPods.
@olebegemann I think they’re equivalent. What difference do you see?
@stephenbraddy Personally, I think it’s a general lack of caring about smaller bugs. Not sure this is Mac-specific.
@stephenbraddy On the plus side, the cursor issues could all be from one bug.
@stephenbraddy I’ve seen many of this level of UI glitches recently, as well as larger ones like Bluetooth and inability to order in Photos.
@stephenbraddy Yep, I see that one, too.
@stephenbraddy Me, too. Never any guarantee, but Radar seems to have a higher success rate than regular support channels.
@stephenbraddy Sorry, but I have to ask: did you file a Radar?
@stephenbraddy I do see the hand cursor stuck in the Mac App Store.
@stephenbraddy I’m also seeing the Finder I-beam cursor issue.
@stephenbraddy Can reproduce I-beam cursor sticking when text box is partially scrolled off.
@stephenbraddy Cannot reproduce hand cursor with Stack Exchange logo.
@stephenbraddy I can reproduce the horizontal resize cursor issue sometimes. Oftentimes it changes back to the pointer soon after I release.
@stephenbraddy Thanks for sharing. I’ll look into this tomorrow.
@stephenbraddy I haven’t seen that, but maybe because I don’t use a Bluetooth mouse. I’ve had lots of Bluetooth keyboard issues…
@zcichy Yep. But I wouldn’t trust my content to them. Long history of discontinuing the distribution platforms that they used to have.
Setting up SparkPost as a backup SMTP server in case Amazon SES goes down again.
@mpweiher Bought it. Looks great.
