Knock on wood, but it’s been a long time since I had an asinine Mac App Store review rejection. I wonder if training has improved, or I’m just getting lucky?
Yesterday I released MarsEdit 4.3.5, with a new feature to prevent unexpected behavior when the app is moved on disk: red-sweater.com/blog/3516…
I love these, both because I think they are a tribute to positive social self-governance, and because I like to imagine a city official with a tea cup taking a sip of tap water.
I’ve worked in tech for almost 30 years. I appreciate my own willingness to embrace the new. You won’t find me complaining about Swift, or ARC, or Objective-C, or 32-bit, or writing apps in programming languages instead of assembly. Tech keeps getting better. Bring it.
I didn’t realize how amazing Shazam has gotten. It can show you live lyrics for what you’re hearing.
Vegan sushi and vegetable fritters at Franchia In Manhattan.
Anybody who doesn’t know, I was in the movie “Trekkies 2”. It’s my claim to IMDB fame and gives me a ridiculously high “Bacon Number”: www.imdb.com/title/tt0…
Anyway, if you ever notice that I’m not saying “how could anybody do that?!” it might be because I have in fact done it. I’m not proud but it does inform my judgment of others who are publicly shamed.
One of my most vivid memories of childhood is playing “cowboys and indians” in the woods. I made that stereotypical noise by hooting and tapping my mouth with my hand. I had no idea what I was doing.
I don’t think I ever wore blackface but I bet there were times in my childhood when I might have. I watched “Soul Man” as a kid and thought it was funny. I’m not defending myself or other white men, but we’re all on a learning/recovering journey.
What if California added a $5K “emissions surcharge” when registering a car that doesn’t meet its “preferred” standards? It would have the same effect on manufacturer compliance.
iOS 13 testers, check your App Store “Arcade” tab. I was tipped off by MacStories and discovered I have early access. www.macstories.net/news/arca…
We cannot have a fundamentally dishonest Justice on the Supreme Court.
Musicians never really die.
I have to confess: I want to see Kavanaugh weep again.
Whatever I’m not paying enough attention to, Elizabeth Warren probably is.
If you belong to more than one development team, the Mac app notarization tools demand an “ASC Provider Shortname.” Here’s how to find it. indiestack.com/2019/09/n…
Sorry if I’m distant. I’m practicing my apology. For when SNL hires me.
I don’t think I’ve shared how my my frozen ziploc hack works in reverse. After thawing a batch of sauce, pop it back in a bowl for easy serving.
I got a current-era Apple Magic Keyboard after two of my Logitech keyboards died in succession. I can see why people rave about this. I would LOVE to have a MacBook Pro with this keyboard.
Parents today warn their kids to “be careful, everything you say on the internet lasts forever.”
Nobody warned me in 1991 when I was 15, answering USENET questions about running UUCP on an Amiga. groups.google.com/forum/
Apple should train Siri on its development API names.
“Remind me to learn about an ass text checking controller.”
At some point along the line (maybe with 10.15 Catalina?) WebKit’s web inspector got some fancy rulers and alignment indicators.
Do you feel like you keep learning new things that were announced at WWDC but you missed? Me too! I found this excellent collection of tidbits from Patrick Balestra: patrickbalestra.com/blog/2019…
