    Always fun when Apple responds to a bug report by requesting a sample app and all you have to do is create an empty project with the default template and send it in unmodified.

      @zev In what universe does ESC mean "go back" anyway? It's like the people who made this have never used the web or software or computers before.

        @zev Oh wow. I have autocorrect disabled on OS X so I never noticed that. Terrible.

          Apple's Bug Reporter is so baffling. It's not just that it's bad, it's that it's bad in such weird, self-inflicted ways. Like watching a kid run around with his eyes closed and then smack into a wall and cry. What did you think would happen, kid?

            @fields Not so far. Just OS X and Mail.app.

              @garrettmurray I tried boot someone caught with their fishing pole in an old muddy creek a few years ago, actually. The compose view was really nice but it didn't support S/MIME, so.

                @sblowes Yeah, same here. The passwords being app-specific makes it hard to tell where the failure is, but I'm pretty sure it's only OS X Mail that's ever given me this problem.

                  @garrettmurray Show me something better that supports more than just Gmail and I'll switch.

                    @sblowes Are you regenerating passwords used by Mail.app, or other things? People are telling me this is Apple's bug, not Google's.
                    dwineman
                      @garrettmurray It may just be yet another Mail.app bug. It often refuses to accept newly generated passwords on the first several tries, too.

                        Do Google 2FA app-specific passwords stop working and have to be revoked and regenerated every couple months for everyone or just me?

                          Holy crap, this post is damning. “OpenSSL is not developed by a responsible team.” I retract all my past rage at Apple for deprecating it: http://article.gmane.org/gmane.os.openbsd.misc/211963

                              Today the Supreme Court heard oral argument in a case which could limit or even invalidate software patents. Here’s the (surprisingly readable) transcript: http://www.supremecourt.gov/oral_arguments/argument_transcripts/13-298_869d.pdf (69-page PDF)

                                      @ancientbuho It does. Makes no sense at all.
