• The brand new 1Password Mini is amazing. I was kind of discouraged during the 1Password 7 Betas at how, well, crappy the appearance of the 1Password Mini was, but it turns out that was because it didn’t matter as they were replacing it.

    I especially love how, finally, 1Password Mini will suggest logins for native apps.

  • Ah, the info comes from a group of European researchers, so I guess they timed the announcement for Monday morning in Europe.

  • The EFF says that a new security vulnerability has been discovered in PGP (and GPG) that affects email clients and plugins, and that you should disable PGP support in your email client (if enabled).

    Why they’re announcing this after 11PM PDT on a Sunday night, I have no idea.

  • If you’re curious what Apple’s build server destroots look like, run

    echo 'puts [::tcl::pkgconfig get libdir,install]' | tclsh

    On macOS 10.13 that spits out a long path starting with /BuildRoot/Library/Caches/com.apple.xbs/Binaries/tcl/install/TempContent/Objects/OBJROOT1/.

  • Brooklyn Nine-Nine was picked up by NBC!

  • FOX just cancelled the best show on TV. I really hope Brooklyn Nine-Nine manages to get picked up by another network or streaming service.

  • Bonjour Browser 2.0 is now available on the Mac App Store. Due to Apple owning the trademark on Bonjour its new name is Discovery - DNS-SD Browser (this matches the iOS app).

  • I misread something tonight and came up with a phrase never before seen on the internet: Benevolent and Protective Order of Elvis.

  • Apparently you can’t have a Mac app and an iOS app with the same bundle ID. The Apple developer program center won’t let you register both. This is a surprising restriction and I can’t think of a reason for it.

  • Has anybody figured out if it’s possible to trigger custom Xcode Runtime Errors in your own code?

  • Trying to decide if Bonjour Browser 2.0 should keep the name “Bonjour Browser”, or if I should rename it similar to the iOS version in order to put it on the MAS (since Apple will never approve “Bonjour Browser” for the MAS).

  • The real measurement for my weight loss is the number of links I’ve taken off of my Apple Watch link bracelet.

  • Really bummed to hear the news about the Black Pixel layoffs. Best wishes to everyone now looking for a new job!

  • The original Bonjour Browser used a program written in Haskell to scrape the dns-sd.org service type registry (to get those human-readable service names).

    The iOS version rewrote that in Go.

    For the new Mac version I’ve now rewritten it once again in Rust, partially because I don’t want to depend on Go (as I don’t use it anymore), and partially just as an excuse to try out hyper and tokio.

  • It feels strange to be working on a Mac app again (rewriting Bonjour Browser) after a decade (!!) of iOS. Though I do appreciate how much faster it is to launch a build.

  • Oh wow, the original Bonjour Browser project is so old it has a configuration called Development (Zero Link). Anyone remember “zero link”?

  • Is it just me, or is Slack becoming even more buggy over time?

    For example, I used to never see the “you’ve found a glitch” screen in the Mac app. Now I see it all the time. I just relaunched Slack and every single team except the active one became a “glitch”.

  • Dammit. Uber acquires bike-share startup JUMP. I thought JUMP was pretty cool and was planning on starting to switch my commute to using it. Guess I’m not doing that anymore.

  • 6 hours in and Ni No Kuni 2 is exceeding my expectations. Fantastic game. If you have a PS4 you should pick this one up.

  • iOS 11.3 is out, along with Xcode 9.3 and whatever else is going along with this (macOS release?)
