    @chaemolaen i think, perhaps, you overestimate the number of mac users on ADN. that said, i'm quite happy with Kiwi. it makes enough money for me to work on it a few times a year. a perfect hobby project. :-)

      @rabryst during startup Kiwi will ask App.net what the maximum PM length. if your 'net connection is flakey at this time, it will fall back to low limit to be safe. restarting Kiwi with a solid 'net connection will get Kiwi to ask again.

        @rabryst that is very weird. i can’t think of any reason to that. and i’m not seeing that on my MacBook. do you have any other details?
        kiwi
          @benjennings @ggirton you are not alone... but there is only one other user (that i've found) with a similar memory issue. all others are report roughly < 1/10th that usage. clearly it's a bug, but i'm quite at a loss what is causing it.
          kiwi
            @ggirton @benjennings 140 is within the normal range. kiwi caches images (user images mostly) so depending on what's happening in your timeline anywhere from about 50MB to about 200 is normal. @benjennings is over 10x that. something else is going on.

              @benjennings i wouldn't really expect any of those things to interact with Kiwi in any way that might make for runaway memory. but since it happens so fast, it might be worth switching them off for a minute to ensure they're not the culprits.

                @benjennings is there anything else interesting that might make your environment different than mine? retina display? special utilities? any other odd behavior on your machine?

                  @benjennings wow. that's crazy. i'm running 3 copies of Kiwi that have all been running at least a few days. two have been running for > week. photos.app.net/25281817/1

                    @benjennings and you're using the released version? 3.2.0? or something else?
                    kiwi
                      @benjennings if it's more of a, "it leaks out memory over the course of a week" type of a thing, then it's a lot harder problem to pin down. perhaps just telling me what you normally do with kiwi might be a good start.

                        @benjennings if it happens pretty quickly after you launch, then you can pull up the activity monitor and just watch while you use it. if there's something particular that pushes it over the edge then let me know.

                          @benjennings woah. the memory use varies a lot depending on what you do with it of course, but even stress tests with global and deep hierarchies i have never seen it get beyond 500MB. normal viewing of your timeline should usually be < 100MB

                            @alexdyas we did that in Kiwi 1 and Kiwi 2, but many folks complained about the complexity of our app. for Kiwi 3 we chose to simplify and that was one of a few features that got cut. for the time being we'll leave that feature for Cauldron. sorry.

                              @alexdyas if you click on a hashtag you can view a timeline of that hashtag.

                                @mps we'll need a special mode just for you.

                                  @alexdyas @morrison that said, if the ADN API supplied that sort of interaction data we could definitely find a way to reveal it in Kiwi.

                                    @alexdyas @morrison it's a nice idea, but doing this just on a client means permanently caching info about all of your social graph -- potentially thousands of users. in most cases things that operate on the whole graph are best solved on the server side.

                                      @muddylaces oh, ok, interesting – but probably unrelated.
