• About to head southbound to Xcoders’ Cyclops. Food and drinks and friends.

  • It was flagged though, so it must have been important.

  • “Node to pass info to adder arrrat/dice to pull out in info control er” is an email I sent to myself a month ago and I have no f’n clue what it was about now.

  • I’ve got a old tower G5 I need to get rid of. Take it to Apple to recycle, or try and give it away on OfferUp/Craigslist? Not sure it’ll even boot anymore…

  • The latest builds page for Retrobatch is up: flyingmeat.com/download/…

    Fresh bits, most weekdays.

  • Just found myself looking at some older Cocoa Script stuff I was working on and man I wish I had finished up this stuff.

  • .jpeg or .jpg?

  • This is me leaking a sneak peek at the new batch processing app: flyingmeat.com/retrobatc…

    It’s very usable, and getting better every day, hopefully a 1.0 soon.

  • What’s the thing called where you have a stupid regression in your app for months and nobody notices until all of a sudden everyone notices at the same time?

  • Shape Of: Here’s an idea I’ve been tossing around lately- Apple should make an Instagram clone for iCloud users.


  • Your song for the moment. I haven’t listened to the whole album, but this one song is great:

    Do What You Wanna: music.amazon.com/albums/B0…

  • Shape Of: A Couple of Climbing Links: shapeof.com/archives/…

    More folks are getting into climbing, which is aaawesome. Here’s some links for ‘em.

  • CGImageDestinationCopyImageSource is a bunch of bullshit. Nobody wants to have to pass in a CGMutableImageMetadataRef, just use the f’n tags and dictionaries an image was loaded with.

  • Something funky for your Monday morning: www.youtube.com/watch

  • For future reference, to open up a man page in BBEdit:

    man 5 sdef | col -b | bbedit

  • Acorn 6.1.2 is out for direct folks. It’ll be making its way to the App Store later today assuming the direct release goes smooth.

    Yea, I’m using direct folks as guinea pigs (I usually do).

  • HyperCard Zine: crime.team/~hypercar…

  • Those were the days.

    I just came across this code in Acorn. It’s obviously not used anymore, and dates back to FlySketch. Boy, we used to be able to do anything back then- apps couldn’t get away with this these days because of code signing.

    - (IBAction)swapShowInDockPref:(id)sender {
        NSString *infoPlist = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"%@/Contents/Info.plist", [[NSBundle mainBundle] bundlePath]];
        NSDictionary *d = [NSDictionary dictionaryWithContentsOfFile:infoPlist];
        if ([sender state]) {
            [d setValue:@"0" forKey:@"LSUIElement"];
        else {
            [d setValue:@"1" forKey:@"LSUIElement"];
        if (![d writeToFile:infoPlist atomically:YES]) {
        NSString *command = [NSString stringWithFormat:@"/usr/bin/touch \"%@\"", [[NSBundle mainBundle] bundlePath]];
        system([command UTF8String]);
  • So I’m working on a new batch image processing app, that’s nothing like any other ones. And I need some new testers! If need some image processing done and would like to kick the tires, let me know: gus@flyingmeat.com
