    @joshpennington that’s what it’s made for. Very cathartic as well. Pro Tip: wear leather gloves or you will get blisters.

      @kirbyt as guybrush threepwood would say: you can sleep when you’re dead.

        @smc the probability of a technology demo working is inversely proportional to the number of people witnessing the demo

          I put a new antenna on the roof. Now we get 60 channels for free. It’s just like cable, most of them are crap. I feel like we live in the future.

            @grosvenor I have never had leftover risotto. Must make extra next time.

              Main MBP could use a little souping up. Any experiences on going with the 480GB SSD v a smaller SSD and replacing the cd rom (ie run SSD and normal HD)

                So...before I go and write my own rails app to collect analytics for my iOS apps does anyone know of a self-hosted option? I want device type, os version, first launch, most recent launch and a few statistics on the in-app database.

                    Submitted v1.1 of Flippy Unicorn to the store. Now with game center support and new rainbow farts. Thanks to everyone who has bought a copy. My daughter is so proud of her artwork. We're also humbled that people who are not my mom say it's a fun game.

                      @kirbyt I’m already working on Game Center. Kitty is drawing the achievement badges as I write this. It totally needs leaderboards. Good idea about steering. I redid the rainbow particle emitter. It’s much cooler.

                        @kirbyt Sprite Kit was the special sauce. In the past I could never turn things around fast enough to keep the kids interested for more than one or two iterations.

                          @fmcauley I have an IT/MBA crossover type degree. It was very helpful when I became a CIO and even more helpful when I quit that to become an Indie developer.

                            Flippy Unicorn has gone live! https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/flippy-unicorn/id839557990?mt=8 Trying to hook my daughter on the idea that making games can become a job. If you can spare the 99 cents I would appreciate it.

                              @roberthaworth @fifthposition I've recently been thinking that a UITableviewContoller was just a convenience for new iOS folks as it breaks MVC. I've even gone so far as making a separate class for my Datasource/delegate so I can do unit tests.

                                @roberthaworth @fifthposition that's what I do, embed the table view in a view controller and keep going.

                                  A soundtrack heavy on OutKast and Ludacris makes for a surprisingly effective debug session.

                                    Oh wait...the error log continues: "An exception has been avoided for now. A few of these errors are going to be reported with this complaint, then further violations will simply silently do whatever random thing results from the nil."
