    @matigo Meh. Jason Williams did things during actual NBA games that the Globetrotters didn't have the stones to try on the Generals. Like the time he passed the ball with his elbow [youtu.be]…

      @matigo A sequel was rumored to be in development last summer, until LeBron James squashed it. Oh, well. We'll always have Thunderstruck [youtu.be]! ;-)

        @matigo 'Tis the universal modus operati of the one-hit wonder with marginally successful follow-ups!

          Hey @bearsfan34. Welcome to the _real_ ADN! :-) I looked through your stream and noticed that you switched cars sometime in the past year; what are your old and new cars, respectively? I've been window shopping for over two years! :-P @eyes

            @matigo Be-de-be-de-bop! :-)

              @jws It doesn't, since it yields NSUIntegers, not NSNumbers. It *does* offer enumerateWithBlock:, though, and I might switch to that depending on whether dispatching a block from within a block and mutating a property from within is safe.

                @evs @joemmac @misterpoppet I’ll be sure to share the eventual public version here, at a minimum :-)
                oluseyi
                  @misterpoppet Thanks. Based on feedback, I’ll start refining it. I’m sure I can find a conference somewhere to then road-test it. Also some thoughts on Core Animation with Auto Layout. @joemmac

                    @misterpoppet It’s internal at my employer, scheduled for next Friday, but I could see refining it with feedback to create something public. Embracing Auto Layout, vector-based images and reappraising consequent design approaches. @joemmac

                      @joemmac Fortunately, I’m at a stage in my career where I can just reply “No” to such asinine requests :-) I’ve got some designers quite excited at the potential of no longer having to rasterize control designs and render 1x and 2x versions [www.paintcodeapp.com].

                        @oluseyi Might have to invite the designers to my Auto Layout tech talk!

                          New grouse: we need to overhaul the pixel-centric design approach. Especially when working on a desktop application, with fonts specified in points, retina and non-retina displays, and variable dot pitch…

                            @clarkgoble Hmm. Python generators are about reentrance, though (and generative values, obviously)—the magic of yield, if you will. I’ll revisit the RC docs to see how streams map; I wasn’t struck by any similarities when reading them last year.

                              @clarkgoble I used ReactiveCocoa on a job last year. Massive overkill for what I’m looking to do here, too :-)

                                @redqueencoder No, I’m working in Objective-C. I just wanted a reentrant method for enumerating/iterating an ordered collection, but only because I was looking at efficient ways to work NSRange into NSFastEnumeration. I just used a for :-/

                                  @clarkgoble There’s some fun stuff in that implementation, like the case label in the middle of the while inside the switch! :-P Too much for me to pull in for the limited scope of my immediate problem. Reading Listed for later, thanks! :-)

                                    Find myself wishing Objective-C had Python-style generators, that you could have categories on structs (!), or that Apple saw fit to create an exception and allow NSRange conform to NSFastEnumeration. »sigh«
