Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-04-25

  • Man – that was nasty! 50 mins looking at wonky stack pointers only to realize I *wanted* a crash, just not the one I was seeing! #
  • @fraserspeirs BA is offering crossgrades to ocean liners now ? in reply to fraserspeirs #
  • @mattgemmell Bond has been delayed: http://bit.ly/b4amla in reply to mattgemmell #
  • Winchester station closed due to accident – southbound trains running soon #mbta #
  • @aschmitt Yep, it was not a good scene at the station this morning. Those on the Haverhill express were stuck for at least 90 mins. in reply to aschmitt #
  • @aschmitt reports seem to suggest a suicide ('not an accident') but no name has been released AFAIK in reply to aschmitt #
  • @kylesm ouch! That sounds as though it might be expensive! in reply to kylesm #
  • @mikebernardo and on a poorly surfaced downhill street with a sharp turn and a big wall at the end? in reply to mikebernardo #
  • Hmm… rumor is Apple wants to acquire ARM ? Perhaps they shouldn't have sold their stake back in the 90s after all! http://bit.ly/aXiNBW #
  • Managed to dodge one thunderstorm on my ride to the station. I wonder if I'll be as fortunate on the next leg from station to home? #
  • I think @fraserspeirs might have misplaced a 'd' in that last tweet about @danielpunkass ? 8-) in reply to fraserspeirs #
  • Grrrr…. iTunes/Applescript is really p***ing me off ! I can't get it to do a simple 'tell … add POSIX file "/path/to/movie.mp4" no errors! #
  • @cdmnky What's the magic for alias conversion ? I tried alias("/path/to/movie.mp4") and didn't get anywhere in reply to cdmnky #
  • @cdmnky Turns out the problem was nothing to do with the script. iTunes will silent fail to add *video* files with an mp4 suffix! Use .m4v in reply to cdmnky #
  • @gruber Isn't it just a 'rumor' according to CNet? You can't expect a paragon of journalism such as Gizmodo to report on rumor and innuendo. in reply to gruber #

Twitter Weekly Updates for 2010-04-11

  • For my little brother : http://bit.ly/cgSQKa (hat-tip to @siegel) #
  • @dsandler My office-mate with a natural keyboard agrees completely (if he taps really loudly I wonder if you can hear him 7 floors down?) in reply to dsandler #
  • @kylesm Cool ! Like to take a look one was 720p24 the other though is 720p30 (essentially). AppleTV ONLY does 720p24 and rejects others #
  • Cool! Thanks to @kylesm I can be sure that my (phantom) iPad will be able to play 720p 30fps video (AppleTV can't do that !) Looks good too! #
  • @chockenberry I thought at all AppStore apps (including Apples) obeyed the 'no private API' rule? It was the bundled apps that are exempt? in reply to chockenberry #
  • RT @emilsit: Maven's local repository is not thread-safe? And no parallel builds? Uh, wow. http://bit.ly/9q3IOF Uh @evanscha !? #
  • Feeling left out at this Cocoaheads – approx 40% of attendees have iPads out! #
  • @cdmnky well now you can comiserate with @jtrainer neither of you willget the goodness of iPhone OS 4.0 in reply to cdmnky #
  • @danielpunkass I think that is entirely the point, the language gives Apple freedom to make choices. They can say "We warned you" if needed in reply to danielpunkass #
  • RT @danielpunkass: New on Red Sweater Blog, a debugging story – http://bit.ly/auKAhh. As Kon & Bal would have said "Nasty!" #
