    @shawnthroop I'd also look towards things like twitter's text library rather that gruber's regex for inspiration. Twitter will have found way more edge cases that grubers (and is more maintainable). Their objc version [github.com] but they've got ruby, java, js too.

      @duerig @shawnthroop trust me, you're going to have to touch it again—and every time you do it will suck :)

        @shawnthroop Not sure exactly what your use case is but if I had to do this from scratch I'd: -Use different patterns for detecting and verifying a link -Use _many_ smaller patterns to build up a final pattern (ex: scheme, subdomain, domain, path, qs, etc.

          @abraham Ok, that should be fixed now. Sorry about that.
          mthurman
            @abraham Whoops, rolling out a fix.

              @ludolphus I'd keep it a little shorter. There's a preview on that editor page so you can see what a user will see on the oauth screen.

                @ludolphus Thanks for letting us know. You probably want to fill in a description for that content type to make the prompt a little more friendly: https://account.app.net/developer/content-types/

                  Developers, starting today, you can ask users for access to only the data you need. We're launching fine grained permissions for authorization called Extended Scopes. Check out the announcement [blog.app.net] or dive straight into the docs [developers.app.net]. #rollout

                    @eik3 Calls that take more resources or contain more sensitive data can require authentication so we can monitor API usage more closely and prevent abuse.

                      @keita did you see this? https://posts.app.net/27567930 (and his other posts around that time talk about that issue)

                        @berg I also think of him as paxos/distributed systems guy and always forget that he brought us LaTeX too.

                          The Thinking for programmers [channel9.msdn.com] presentation from Leslie Lamport is good. His point: every program should have a spec whether it's a one line comment or some TLA+ model for complex distributed systems—making the spec forces you to do required thinking.

                              @jeffmueller Makes sense and that definitely happens. But I also think lots of stuff gets bought and shut down _because_ it isn't independently viable. And in the alternative universe where it wouldn't have been bought, it would've shut down anyway.

                                @jeffmueller For you, is this sentiment mostly: - Fear that something you like will change for the worse? - Disappointment that the company isn't "independent" any more? - Something else? I'm really curious to understand this sentiment.

                                    @billkunz that episode was really good. In general, this season has been better than last (not hard) but has still fallen pretty flat to me. It's trying _really_ hard.

                                      @willnorris I wanted to let you know we went back and updated this. If you reverify your domain we'll start generating https links for it.

                                        Thanks everyone! We're really excited.
