    There's a tree in this washroom…

      @brianpugh I kinda like it though. I like trusting Stephenson to weave his crazy stories. Maybe I'm just a fan

        Five and a half hours in and I still don't know where this story is going.

          Today I'm reading Seveneves, the new Neal Stephenson book. It's satisfying my need for long tedious explainations of space life and realistic, yet heightened, adventures. Good performance by the narrator too [www.audible.com]

            I will not write my own UILabel… I will not write my own UILabel… I will not write my own UILabel… I will not write my own UILabel… I will not write my own UILabel… … I probably will though.

              @remus it it's quite strange. Stranger yet, after setting the a UITextView's backgroundColor and is subviews' backgroundColor, Instruments still colors it as a blended later. Lighter than without setting bg, but still blended

                @remus yes, I believe so. I use a background of white for both cells and tableview and the performance still improved.

                  @matigo I started using nice when on my Mac. Better than alpha in many respects, the biggest of which is posts aren't full width. That's one problem I haven't solved on iPad, yet
                  shawnthroop
                    @matigo yep. Though, I accidentally slipped the word iPad in there, the next release isn't guaranteed to be a Universal update, but if there's one after that… it's looking hopeful

                      Oh my. I even surprised myself with how smooth scrolling is on an iPad. Never underestimate the performance improvements of an opaque background applied to the subviews of a UITextView.

                        @edporras the best part is she said it all. Or at least the non-punctuation characters. It took like 30 seconds in total

                          If you own a 13 inch MacBook with a retina screen, you got to try putting your display at the highest density. It makes it feel at least a 15 inch.

                            It's pretty crazy the amount of files I have created for Prose. It doesn't help that I am now using my own model objects so I have a ton of small files for that. One big upside to ADNKit was the automatic support for NSCopying and NSCoding.

                              @33mhz you got to carve out some time at some point. I can't explain how good it was with words

                                    @remus I'm my own worst enemy. I rewrite and rewrite and rewrite my rewrites… one day soon
