don't start forest fires this summer!
@sourcetree Wasn't sure if it was also possible on OS X, so I wanted to double check to make sure. btw I'm really liking SourceTree so far!@sourcetree To clarify earlier tweet "Your web page about SourceTree Windows says its possible. Mac too?" Meaning, it *is* possible Windows@sourcetree Thanks for clarifying. Some friends want to set up a private git server hosted on their own machines.
@sourcetree can I use my own private Git server with SourceTree for Mac? Your web page about SourceTree Windows says its possible. Mac too?
@cedge318 can we use AWS S3 to backup/restore of files on HFS+ OS X server? Preservation and integrity of file system metadata (ACLs etc.)?
@EricGibbons Awesome app! What part of the country to you use it in the most?
@EricGibbons what do you mean by "Been done on it." regarding Dark Sky app?
@justinrummel … only a Mac running Server app for remote sys admin can subscribe to Server Alert Pushes. Sys Admins have iPads too! Ugh.@justinrummel same here - I use an "organizational" Apple ID for Server app and got an Apple Push Notification Certificate but ...@justinrummel I'd like to use an iPad to receive Server Alerts (via APNS, not email). Only choice is a remote admin Mac w/ Server app, true?
@justinrummel do you think Apple might be planning an end-of-life for OS X Server?@asymco So, is it really worth your (and your readers) time / energy answering questions from H. Blodget? Next time use the "ignore" button.@asymco H. Blodget is a hype monger who thrives on mountains made from molehills since the SEC barred him for life from securities trading.
@moxie thanks, got RedPhone working! Its a a great accomplishment to have real time ZRTP dialogue via low latency servers and smartphones!
@kellyhodgkins thanks for your article about backing up Google Reader. Any recommendations for an RSS client for Retina MacBooks?
@moxie Thank you for clarifying this. I'm looking forward to trying RedPhone (looks like I'll have to get my Android phone fixed)@moxie my Android phone's SIM card reader is damaged. Is it possible to use RedPhone on Android via WiFi?@sawant thanks for the suggestion, I hadn't tried Vienna, great to know. Open source and good on Retina!
@the_pc_doc the speakers on the 15" Retina MacBook Pro are quite impressive and are pleasantly surprising (power and fidelity) for a laptop!
@the_pc_doc I hope you enjoy your new Mac and look forward to your writing about it and comparing with the recent Windows Dell experience!
@the_pc_doc which CPU did you get w/ your 15" Retina MBPro? I'm in the market for one and was thinking of 2.66 or 2.7 GHz w/ 8MB L3 cache
@Wayne_819I'd like to try ML on an Xserve. I see there's an 8 GB RAM limit. What graphics card upgrade do I need for Xserve?
@DmitriCyber I had a look at several of these slides and it appears this is Windows specific. Glad to be using UNIX / OS X!
@nathanmarz and besides, isn't GitHub meant for everyone (for the world to use and share)? You want Storm to take off globally right?@nathanmarz furthermore, it reminds me of how long it took for Unicode UTF-8 to finally take off (the U.S. is not the center of the world)!@nathanmarz that's a rather ethnocentric viewpoint (do people who travel from Japan to S.F. say the same thing when they return home)?
@grokr is groklabs the same as, or spin off, of the now defunct grokker?
@nikolaikrill is Patterns available for the iPad? Having both for iPad and OS X would be great!@cedge318 regarding FreeBSD / NetBSD, John says it will run on all sorts of hardware, but big question, will it run on legacy Xserve?@cedge318 nice article about NetBSD last week on 318's but silly/dumb that 318 blog comments have to login with Facebook.
@reseauxsansfil @tiqrtag thanks for pointing out that very important distinction between OATH and OAuth. Sigh.@alfa147x @arekdreyer This is what bothers me the most about Google (they offer free candy then take it away). Many people like free!@arekdreyer @alfa147x Good catch. I echo your sentiment about supporting and valuing paid apps (eschewing "free lunches")
@alfa147x @arekdreyer You can hear Eric Schmidt bellowing "here little children, come get my *free* services and get hooked on them"!@alfa147x This is what people get for developing a habitual dependency on a company like Google. Count on them to eventually screw you over.@tiqrtag Is Tiqr based on Oath 2.0?
@Marware do you have a case for the iPad 2 that will simultaneously allow the iPad to connect to Apple's iPad Dock? Thank you.
@bywordapp Can I use your app w/ my own secure (https) WebDAV server (instead of iCloud or Dropbox)? Public clouds are *not* for everyone!
@iFixit If I buy a 2012 Mac Mini from Apple w/ 2 HDDs or 2 SDDs, do I need iFixit's Mac Mini Dual Hard Drive Kit for future drive swap outs?
@TFTCentral agreed - good old email still has a place in the world! I didn't readily see your email address, maybe I missed it?@TFTCentral See also this document from Apple about multichannel audio (up to 8 channels) over Mini DisplayPort => http://t.co/igZCT0LZ@TFTCentral I thought the Asus PB278Q could only play audio carried via HDMI. If DisplayPort audio is also supported, that would be great!@TFTCentral Are you sure its possible to play audio through the speakers if the audio is carried via DisplayPort (I.e., from a MacBook Air)?@TFTCentral "… as well over those connections in case you want to connect headphones."@TFTCentral "An audio output is provided for when you are using the HDMI or DisplayPort interfaces and audio is being sent to the screen …"@TFTCentral your excellent Asus PB278Q review states (not enough room to fully excerpt in a single Tweet) …
@jollyjinx Great post on byo fusion drive for Macs. More important, your note about ZFS. How do you glue ZFS and OS X? Via iSCSI?
@drewcovi If you sign an email on your iPhone, does the recipient also need the StartSSL Intermediate cert or is the Root CA cert ok?@drewcovi I've got it all working now too, kind of a hassle but worth it in the end. Thank you for your suggestions and feedback!@drewcovi its possible my cert remained untrusted because my iPhone Config app in OS X was initialized with an untrusted cert … hmmm …@drewcovi I got it to work, thank you (I had to email the certs to myself too - my email is SSL on the Mac and iPhone so that's ok)@drewcovi including the Intermediate CA (in .cer format)?@drewcovi did you install the StartSSL Intermediate CA onto your iPhone with iOS 6 via web browser (Safari)?@drewcovi Sigh. I exported StartSSL Intermediate CA from keychain into iPhone Config utility then into profile then into iPhone. No go.@drewcovi thanks! I've done a bit more looking around and I might be able to install the StartSSL Intermediate CA via iPhone Config Utility
@cloudpundit Who to trust when amid turbulent clouds? Bezos as landlord could become wicked in future? Ballmer's MSFT Azure? OpenStack? Sigh@cloudpundit was thinking, how often do consortias work and persist? Is OpenStack akin to Unix consortia of past (Sun, IBM, SCO, SGI, etc)?@cloudpundit tks for your Openstack report. Good to keep the consortia honest! Also nice to know Gartner doesn't do commissioned reports.@deedubs sorry for the delay in replying (was traveling Twitterless). Nope, I didn't get an answer to this :-(
@pauliooj thanks for the update. I've been testing 10.8 on an Air and its been stable, I may update my Mac Pro tower soon.
@pauliooj Radi looks great, just discovered it. Can I run it on Mac OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion? My Air was just upgraded to 10.8.
@jalifax Cool! Who supplies the weather info? I presume you're not a meteorologist :-) Forecast accuracy is as important as the UI / UX!
@pkedrosky "maddening" only to those without a view and who risk using proprietary software (glad I didn't use it, I still have my sanity!)
@mbostock A friend just got Square Reader for iPhone! He showed me the accounts Payments page (history etc.). Very cool! Powered by Cube?
