    @okke Sweet! I’ve been away for this so long I had no idea. :)

      @drinkipa You can register for free as a developer to see the docs for Mavericks, iOS 7 and such. You have to pay to get access to the Beta stuff.
      donmelton
        @drinkipa Well, sort of, they have beginner’s guides and such. With Apple, the hard part isn’t learning the programming languages. The hard part is learning the toolkits.

          @drinkipa The first thing you should do is join the developer program so you can get access to the Beta and the other documentation. Very useful.

            @okke Cool. What’s the best hack to point the command line tools to the Beta? Are $PATH hijinks enough?

              @tangentworlds That’s what everyone else is saying so, yeah, I’ll take the plunge. :)

                PTSD has prevented me from doing this since I retired, but I’m now considering installing Apple beta software just so I can play with Swift.

                  @swilliams We’ll definitely get to Ridley’s “Alien” but I would love to do Cameron’s “Aliens” as a separate show even though it’s a sequel and therefor violates my original guidelines for content. But… what the hell, why not? :)

                    @swilliams I couldn’t make it through any of the AVP movies. Thank god I only tried to watch them on home video and not the theater.

                      @swilliams “Prometheus” is one of the few movies I’ve seen where I actually wanted my money back after I left the theater. :) Very disappointing considering the filmmakers.

                        “It’s not a toomah!” Unfortunately the biopsy said otherwise. So my doctor removed a basal-cell carcinoma from my face today. Ouch.

                          @drinkipa Ah, a man who knows the classics. :)

                            @drinkipa It just seizes up and won’t respond. Occasionally performance sucks, too. But it’s the complete wedging of WiFi that forces me to reboot it.

                              @jonathandugec Indeed. Great hardware. Shitty software.

                                  Stupid question: What’s the least lethal Java 6 Runtime to install on OS X? (I need this for the Harmony Remote software.)
