@NSExceptional @steipete I wonder if it would work similarly to create the strings in a way that avoids the tagged pointer optimization.

@0xced So since Swift is now part of the OS, it’s going to be years before our lowest deployment target has this fix?

@siegel Ah, that makes sense. I would prefer that, too, were it not for the components currently available to us.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to siegel

@siegel @tapbot_paul @pilky Is it less glossy than the iMac’s display? Or some other reason that you like it better?

@bwebster Yeah, so checking the preferences it looks like it was actually using SMB. Regardless, I haven’t changed it since 10.14.

@Jon_Alper Checking the preferences, it looks like FileI Sharing was already set to SMB.

@Jon_Alper Not sure. I’ll try that next time.
