And now, another language

You know, I was getting quite comfortable with Obj-C, C++11, and everything else I had learned over the years… now Apple has to go and introduce another language: Swift I don’t know what to make of it. How much better can it be than Obj-C? I guess I’ll find out over the course of the […]

Perforce and Xcode5

In a previous post, Perforce and Xcode4, I created applescripts to work with Xcode4 and Perforce. I updated the AppleScripts to work with Xcode5 only and added a couple of new scripts. One, called p4_file_renamed.scpt, is used to update the renamed file Perforce when you are using Xcodes rename functionality, either directly or through the […]

Perforce and Xcode4

I created some AppleScripts that allow you to control some basic Perforce functionality in Xcode4, which was lost when Apple released the latest version of their IDE. Perforce actually published a way of checking out files using the Behaviors functionality in Xcode (Xcode and P4), but I wanted a little more. Note, these scripts are […]

PowerBook G4 suffers another problem

Apple doesn’t go out of their way when they have a batch of computers that have problems, unless of course those computers blow up and cause bodily damage. The problem I’m talking about is the PowerBook G4 lower memory bank dying ( Apparently, there was a whole lot of laptops that had this problem, but […]

WWDC09 Sold out?

You know, I want to go to WWDC, but I couldn’t justify the trip. I had to many things going on at that point in time. The more time went on, the more I thought about going. The track I was really interested in was OpenCL. Honestly, I didn’t think it would sell out. But […]

Revisiting Me, My PowerBook and Apple

This is old news, but something I felt compelled to write about anyway. Last November, for the first time, I packed my bag, my PowerBook and headed over to Apple.  I was there to attend the a week long Performance Workshop for the product that I work on at Nikon. Now for those who don’t […]
