    I’m three episodes into The Night Manager and I’m really enjoying it. I’ve never read the source material but like Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, another Le Carré adaptation, it doesn’t treat you like an idiot

      There is something really nice about typing on a Macbook keyboard with really clean and dry hands. Something in the sound and the glide…

        I've been rewatching Arrow lately and there are some clever little Easter eggs. In the first scene with Caitlin and Cisco, Cisco causally asks "Are you getting a bad vibe of this guy?" Is there a hat tip emoji?

          Recreated my custom label yesterday. Now when you present an modal view controller (like a UIAlertController) all the selectable text goes grayscale like the system controls do. It's all in the little details #prosedev

            @thomasbrand those title cards… damn I love that show

              @jws yep, kind of a facepalm moment. I was trying to count things based on a set of known variables rather than just using the same units of measurement that NSString uses under the hood. It's funny how it took 2 weeks to get there hahaha

                As much as Swift's implementation of strings is complicated and cumbersome, it allows a lot of insight into the strings and therefore extensibility. Also, reduce() and map() are becoming staples for eliminating verbose for statements #prosedev

                  In my ongoing fight with Unicode I feel like I'm the boy that cried wolf. That being said, I might have finally won the war. For finding correct offsets, enumerating over composed characters and then using each Unicode Scalar's UTF16 length does the trick

                      Made some solid progress with Share sheets and Action sheets tonight. Development slowed down lately because I have been more active at work. Also, the Share sheet API is not fun to build a layer on top of. #prosedev

                        @neilco Wow, I always pictured Wales as a place without bodies of water. Looks very peaceful. (Also: clearly I know nothing of Wales)

                          @neilco I'm so jealous. Whereabouts is this?

                            @jws I actually got it wrong, it's supposed to be http://🍺🍺hashtag.tk, does that still crash? // @33mhz @jaredsinclair

                              @33mhz and even in some urls too. @jaredsinclair broke some of my parsing with his http://🍻🍻hashtag.tk a week ago 😉

                                @jasonflexsteel it's an internal build, I haven't got the theming layer coded yet so the system just uses default blue. My mockup in Sketch has much nicer colors

                                  @jmreekes no promises I'm afraid, I'm moving this summer and originally planned this to be released last summer. So… ya I'd rather under promise and then over deliver

                                    Colors are still a bit off and the layout will be tweaked but this is progress. Next I have to make those buttons work. Post streams with a selected post [photos.app.net]

                                      I've finally made a list of all the things that need to get finished and I might actually get this app finished #prosedev

                                        @jws if that wasn't what that linked to I was going to post it. Please tell me you own that domain? @33mhz
