    @cgiffard Word can be a great tool, if and only if used properly. Unfortunately many use it the Wrong Way™, because the thing they want to achieve is oftentimes easier to do it like that.

      Spent the day re-typesetting a really awfully formatted document in Microsoft word with my (for my) mum to use 100% semantic styling and outlining. There’s probably two hundred pages to go. My eyes feel like they might fall out of my head at this point.

        I guess it's officially christmas. Just finished watching the ultimate christmas movie.

          @thedoctor That's what I heard (from a colleague, who heard/read it from somewhere). But yeah, it was a dark movie. But it was dark in a good sense. It showed that rebellion is not as easy as a Sunday walk in the park.

            @thedoctor It is a dark movie. I also heard that originally it was even darker.

                @manx Yeah, there wasn't as bad waves as a year ago, and the city was nice in spite of the wet snowfall. I agree, it would have been nice to fika, but such is life. Maybe next year, when we have the next cruise.

                  Weird bugs are truly weird. When you fix one, you squash another at the same time. I won't complain, though…

                      @thedan84 I managed to get it fixed by moving the smallest horizontal constraints to the margin of the custom UIView to the view controller and setting the UIView in the view controller to Clip To Bounds. Now everything is where it should be. 😊

                          Ahoi, dear iOS developer friends! How does one make the width of a subview, which is loaded from a NIB, to match that of the view controller it will be displayed in? I'm using autolayout, so there should be a checkbox (or 2) that will make that.

                            @morrick Lifeline, a text-based game, actually does that. It sends you a notification, when it requires attention (there some gaps in the gameplay). If you open the app but don’t go forward, it sends you a couple of reminders, it stops sending them.

                              @neilco Oh dear. I do consulting work for a news media company and following their day to day business from the close proximity revelas that also they are also having very hard times at the moment.

                                @bsag Thanks! I hope my worst-case scenarios won't become reality.
