I disabled crossposting from Twitter, after the email that pointed out it’s ruining the platform. πŸ˜…

Posting manually will make the conversations I have here more deliberate and easier to follow. It could also mean that I’ll post a lot less. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Still an issue with Catalina Beta 2 unfortunately.

It took a while, but @repairalert@twitter.comappened: Apple announced a new repair program! πŸ› 

Apple's determined that in a number of 15-inch MacBook Pro units the battery may overheat. Affected units were sold between September 2015 and February 2017.

Maybe the best part about this video series by The 8-Bit Guy isn't all the (awesome) technical details he shares about creating Planet X3, but the insight into what an insurmountable amount of work it is to ship a game to 2.500 people. 😱

I moved my dedicated home office into a cabinet a few weeks ago. πŸ—„

Here’s how that looks and what I did to add some variety to my working environment. πŸ‘‡

Pipvid v1.1 is out now! πŸš€

It adds size-based window management. This means you can just shrink a window down to trigger Pipvid and snap the video player into a corner. It's pretty cool! πŸ“

Pipvid's still one of my personal favorite apps though and I hope to push out another update this week.

Here's a video that shows what it does. 🧲

It didn't get on the @ProductHunt@twitter.com homepage, which (I realize now) I relied too much on. Will change that in the future.

Pipvid version 1.0.1 is out now. Thanks @sindresorhus@twitter.com for the feedback regarding stealing focus. πŸ˜‰

If you watch videos at all, have a look at Pipvid. I think it's rather great. 🧲

OMG tccutil in Catalina actually accepts the bundle ID it has claimed to accept for years:

The sample macOS project uses SwiftUI btw. I like it.

In iOS 13 you can now change the preferred language for each app individually. Developers get this new settings preference automatically without even updating their app for iOS 13.

Music's scripting support is a case of split identity. Half of it still thinks it is iTunes. I can retrieve the artwork just fine, but track info isn't working atm. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Oh, it's not just my tablet. None of my devices connected through USB work after I've logged in. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ

Almost forgot what an absolute nightmare @wacom@twitter.com drivers are with each new release of macOS.

My tablet does nothing on macOS Catalina. It's not even recognized.

I do still need to add support for the Music app to Denied. Looking into that right now.
