You know what we need to bring back? Tunics. They’re a better summer option than either shorts or dresses because 1) shorts are nonsense wear and 2) not everyone wants to wear a dress, but a tunic combines the chill androgyny of shorts with the nether-ventilation of dresses. We could wear them Roman-style with a belt and sandals. WHO’S WITH ME.

I wonder why macOS doesn’t seem to support unnamed semaphores (at least in sandboxed apps?). Is there a recommended workaround ?

So the people who complain about people taking calls in restaurants, maybe even on speaker phone:

Do you also complain to people who dare converse in public?

Is there anywhere selling pre-made #pronoun #stickers for conferences?

The little ones that say “he”/“she”/“they”/“ask me“ (or whatever) that a techy conferences/events can leave out for people to use. I'd need a few hundred. (feel free to boost)

hey uh. usa people. imagine you were using a vpn. i'm guessing you would prefer multiple available locations for the usa since it's a big place. per city or is east/west/south/central good enough?

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.

Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.

Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".

@breakthesystem If you think I‘m sticking it in that grape drink you‘d be sorely disappointed! 😳

starting a bondage session alright let's set up the rules

The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL
NOT", "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and
"OPTIONAL" in this document are to be interpreted as described in
RFC 2119.

Every time I open App Store Connect, I see the iPhone version of the Talking Moose with its rejection badge from years ago … it was rejected for “not having enough functionality”.

One day I’ll finish the Mac Moose for MAS and then take another stab at the iPhone version.

Dear “Wish”, I ordered 3 hoodies, isn’t it a bit excessive to send me

welcome e-mail
order confirmation
3 “preparing for shipment” e-mails, one for each item in the order
an e-mail ad for more clothing
an e-mail ad for a sale on bike equipment

WITHIN LESS THAN 48 HOURS?!

Is there a way to turn off the export compliance confirmation on the App Store Connect web site? At least for TestFlight? Without that, this app would just upload and be live.

So what’s going to happen with iTunes for Windows?

Will it keep existing as iTunes? Will it be split up into “Apple Music”, “Apple TV” etc. like on macOS? What about the device sync parts?

Swift peeps: Beginning programmer friend has been using SQLite in another language and now wants to try Swift.

Any recommendations for a thin Swift SQLite wrapper? Something that doesn’t need package managers, just a few files to drop into Xcode and start using?

@rnickson IMO any company that shuts down their DRM servers should be legally required to distribute the keys and/or a tool to remove their own DRM

Neat how easy Git is to extend: Each sub-command is literally just an executable file named git-xxx looked up in your PATH.

So if you wanna extend git, with a “frobnitz” command, create a git-frobnitz script that does the work and write a manpage for it.

There’s no step 3!

Thinking of a friend, missing his voice. Then realized YouTube has where I heard his voice first (before I even knew him) youtube.com/watch?v=94Td10o2jp

Is there a way to run a script only when building for archiving? Would be neat to have it auto-bump the build number before submitting to TestFlight so this dumbo doesn’t forget it every time.

Have a phantom link error now. The function is there, the prototype is there, the function is extern “C”, the exports file contains the name … but Swift says it’s not in the lib.

UIScrollView: I want a form for entering text, as wide as the scroll view, as high as the views (auto layout). What was the trick to not get error messages about content height again?

Also, is there a way to switch a UITextField to not vertically resize? (Single-line mode?)
