    @1password - question - can I upgrade to 1Password4 on iOS and stay on 3 on the desktop or do I have to upgrade everything?

      @chrifpa Small price to pay for simplicity though, I suppose. ZeroMQ is worth checking out though if you get some time in the future, gives you lots of options for little problems like this, also would make your code horizontally scale on multiple nodes.

        @chrifpa Yeah, sometimes it’s best just to start out with what will work, and I suppose the lock file will. The issue is of course if something crashes while the lock file exists.
        jkelly
          @chrifpa well be careful though, because you could end up with multiple processes writing to the file at the same time. You could potentially create a check for a lock file and just sleep until its gone, but that's not very elegant.

            @chrifpa I'd personally use zeromq, but you may not want to learn another framework, although its pretty light weight.

              @chrifpa well, I definitely think a db would be the way to handle this, but perhaps a process that handles persistence on its own, and can handle accepting an arbitrary number of connections and writing the data out to a file?

                    @oluseyi New battery on them is incredible, just got one for my wife. 11 hours a charge. @chriskrycho

                      @oluseyi throw in a pack of stickers of the keyboard? :P It’s too bad about the constraints being different, because yeah, that class of machines is one where even by price the Apple hardware shines. @chriskrycho

                        Ugh. Very slowly writing a very terrible 500 word essay on prospects of Hezb-e-Islami coming back into the governmental fold in Afghanistan.

                            @mattstkc VLC is available on Android though? Maybe just an issue with the beta? Also it’s available on iOS too. :) @michaelb
