@DazeEnd Yea, it's black magic alright.

I did the multiple feedings daily, because my fav pizza place does it. I got a very stable starter pretty quickly.

@DazeEnd I do 50% whole wheat, and 50% white. I've also heard that rye is pretty good for getting starters going.

@DazeEnd I had success with feeding mine 3-4 times a day to get it going. That was over two years ago, when it’s active I’ll feed it 1-2 tines a day.

Have you looked into “the pineapple solution “?

@DazeEnd what’s the diff between feedings? And how old is the starter?

The one where Gus tries to come up with a better explanation as to why deep images are important.

Has anyone written a piece yet on how NSVisualEffectView looks like absolute crap in Mojave dark mode?

Hot take: NSVisualEffectView makes apps in dark mode look like shit.

@chartier I'm with you on this one. I don't get what the big rush is.

I want to give a shoutout to the Core Image team at Apple. MacOS 10.14 Mojave was released today, and in the over 10 years I've been developing Acorn, this has got to be the smoothest and most bug free release day for the Core Image framework I've ever seen.

So many thanks. Most folks won't know or care, but this graphics API guy certainly did.

It's not a huge thing, but it puts a smile on my face. Piggybacking on the Apple News app, FMDB is now shipping in MacOS Mojave starting today, and has been shipping as part of iOS for a number of years. That's my software being used on a lot of devices.

"What's New in This Version can't contain the following character(s): ⌘"

Really App Store? Really?!

I’ve not had a chance to use the latest (within the past 5 years or so) built in Xcode unit testing frameworks, because my needs are pretty specialized. I tend to build my own.

But I’ve been using the stuff in Xcode 10, and it’s pretty dang great. ^⌥⌘G & ^⌥⌘U? Wonderful.

Sometimes when my mind is bored and drifting I'll find myself typing versiontracker.com into Safari, even though it's long gone for many years now.
