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 (apple.com). 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 […]
