So… did someone make up a difference to generate page views (well, someone lying on the internet, it could happen one day), or does the iPhone manufacturing process actually allow for a difference between individual devices big enough to be noticed?
Yeah, I’ll probably go on and assume it’s the former. (Not that I care; I’m just obligated to post this because I blogged about the original news.)
Conversely, think before asking strangers to test software. It’s hard for them to say no; if they do, most won’t helpful provide feedback.
Don’t know how anyone manages to find their way in the AdWords back-office. (Got a voucher, trying to use it to sell some apps.)
Oh, that’s fun, you can use “self” in an Objective-C static method. Of course, chances are it was a mistake and your app’s gonna crash.
Three days later, my AdWords ads still haven’t gotten a single impression. Why? I have no fucking clue.
Dear Apple: now that users have multitasking, an iOS app really needs to be able to self-terminate when something went irreparably wrong.
Et vas-y que j’ai passé trois heures à convaincre mon bandeau de pub d’afficher un fond qui se répète autour de l’image.
For some reason it looks like I’m getting ready to spend the next three hours staring into the void while waiting for the new DNS to take.
How about Apple use its billion-dollar reserves to lobby for a less brain-dead reworking of patent law?
May have said it before, but I hate hate hate how commenting on Reddit is getting me so used to Markdown that I miss it on my own blog.
I’d just like to have a CSS property that says “don’t fuck up my layout no matter how many exclamation points a stupid user has typed.”
Oh, that one’s my fault, I’d forgotten I had put a <table> there. In the meantime, found out about “word-wrap: break-word,” so yay.
Remind me — I’m supposed to blame Adobe when a couple of animated gifs make my Safari lock up, right?
At least if Twitter goes on pushing third-party apps away, maybe it’ll motivate them to finally implement list management in their own app?
Right, so today is one of those days when I empty my iPad’s battery downloading the new version of a game I never play #infinityblade
The hell? The “Message” button in Facebook opens a chat window now? What the fuck was the point of a new messaging system, then?
Still reluctant to move my personal data from the MacBook (whose drive is regularly cloned) to the Drobo (has no backup if software crash).
I’m kinda curious about Tweed for iPad but not quite to the point of buying it.
Ah, ouais, ça fait une demi-heure que je demande à mon client SQL pourquoi il ne veut pas se connecter à mon serveur SQL qui est éteint.
Bien sûr ça aiderait juste un poil si le message d’erreur ne disait pas que ça vient de la connexion SSH.
Je peux être content d’avoir poussé mon client à transférer le domaine sur Gandi pour que la commande de certificats SSL soit en rade…
That looks terribly tacky to me.
No idea why No Pic choked until I increased Apache’s MaxClients even though it worked just fine on the old server with the same setting.
Just looked at Snow Leopard for the first time in weeks. Honestly couldn’t believe the aqua scrollbars - we lived with this for ten years?
TMG’s server was running a custom-written administration program coded in Delphi. It had the unusual security feature of not requiring any authentication at all, allowing anyone connecting to port 8500 to send commands to the server. […] The update command connects to an FTP server, retrieves a file, and then executes it—all without authentication—and rather than connecting to a specific FTP server, it allows the server to be specified when the update command is given.
Laugh out loud.
Where the hell did Apple hide the bitmaps for its iOS search field? I don’t want to have to redo them myself, it’s absurd.
Launch Xcode and Photoshop, divide productivity by ten. It’d be faster to quit each and launch the other every time I need to switch.
Get that bullshit out of my site.
I need to write a script to erase temporary pictures after two months, but I’m paralyzed by the fear of screwing up my “rm -rf”.
The social network has passed the name, email address and telephone number of a south Tyneside councillor accused of libelling the local authority via a series of anonymous Twitter accounts. South Tyneside council took the legal fight to the superior court of California, which ordered Twitter, based in San Francisco, to hand over the user’s private details.
I didn’t expect that a European entity, “libelled” by a European citizen, could go to California and get a judge to subpoena the account’s information from Twitter. Eep.
Les connards utilisent “signaler au webmaster” pour clore les conversations, maintenant. This is why we can’t have nice things.
Glad that I’m not the only one. Disabling PEX & DHT seems to be helping.
