In preparation of twitter’s inactive-username purge I’ve spent my afternoon building a twitter username monitoring system using Bash, Automator, AppleScript and WebKit. This all runs on Leopard on my G4 Cube.

I finally found a use for my old iPad 3
This underground Cold War airbase is humongous. There must be at least 50 aircrafts in here!
This product does look mighty appealing but I would not have imagined there was such demand for fancy, expensive tripods. $2 million raised in a few hours 😳
So ehm, does anyone wanna buy my old tripod?…
How cool is it that Wikipedia has an actual wax cylinder recording from the 1800s of Lord Tennyson himself reciting The Charge of the Light Brigade? His reading has a totally different rhythm compared to how I’m used to reading it. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Charge_of_the_Light_Brigade_(poem)
Anyone else on here watching #Eurovision today? www.svtplay.se/video/219…
I’m sad there won’t be any App Camp 4 Girls camps this summer 😢 But… I’m extremely happy the Live at WWDC fundraiser is going ahead 🤘 I look forward to seeing all the AC4G heroes there!
During WWDC week I’m visiting the Tesla factory for a tour on Thursday at 5 pm. I have one spot open. If you are interested in joining the tour, let me know.
TIL that grabbing a bottle of Nikka From the Barrel for $45 at the government liquor store during my last visit to Sweden was a better deal than I realized 😲
I’m going to WWDC 19! Hopefully there’ll once again be a microblogger meet? They’ve been fun in previous years…
Doing app store releases in a company set up for big platform releases you get to experience the best of two worlds. The uncertainty of Apple’s review process, combined with the ball and chains of inscrutable platform release procedures. #NotAgile
I have successfully escaped the snowpocalypse. Currently changing the Panic sign in Portland.
Rushing to Portland in a vain attempt to avoid Seattle’s snowmageddon.
Despite spending the weekend at PodCon I could still handle one more podcast event this week. Live recording of @glennf’s The New Disruptors at Ada’s Technical Books & Café.
Hey podcast fans, anyone else going to PodCon in Seattle this weekend?
Are there any good how-tos on how to sign a Mac app installer package (.pkg) to avoid the macOS Gatekeeper’s “can’t be opened because it is from an unidentified developer” warning?
Preparing breakfast at 14:00… I do love taking it slow on a day off.
I came up with a game concept today. Please tell me if it sucks, has already been done, or if perhaps it would be worthwhile trying to implement. — Young woman locked in tower uses the distractions of a prince’s bumbling rescue attempts to sneak out of her luxury tower prison room and mount her escape down the many levels of the tower.
On reaching her freedom she hops on the prince’s abandoned stallion and finds herself with a decision to make. Does she ride off to her freedom, or try to rescue the vast number of princes who have been incarcerated in the cellar dungeons after failing to rescue her? (Yay, extra levels!)
Configuring new build machines for the office. Thank you Apple for keeping HDMI and USB-A ports on the new Mac Minis for BYOKDM purposes. No need to buy dongles 🙌🏼
Does anyone know what the Chinese voicemails I endlessly receive on my phone are about? I can’t be the only one who gets them, right?
So 🤬 frustrated with Apple’s Mac App Store review process right now. Trying to put an enterprise business application in the app store their rejection wording is so vague it sounds like they for whatever reason think it contains in-game-currencies 🤯
Thank Jobs we have the fallback option of distributing it outside the app store on the Mac.
I wonder if solar powered electric airships/dirigibles are feasible. I’ve always wanted to cross The Atlantic on a zeppelin, and if airplane pollution is going to be priced in in the future perhaps a slower but cleaner way can be competitive?
Yes, I dressed up as a Pantone color for Halloween… #KeepingItSimple
