Task-orientated email

Sat, 20 Dec 2014 22:20:37 +0000

I just don’t get it. I mean, I get it, but I don’t get it. I’m old school email. This article recommends the mail client Mailbox. Note it’s only criteria for not using Mailbox is if you have an email address that’s not Gmail or iCloud, not that you don’t like task-orientated email interfaces. I’ve […]

Fibre to the node – hahahahahah

Tue, 28 Oct 2014 05:54:52 +0000

My house, which was on the pre-Coalition 3 year NBN roll out, but was afterward nuked by the LNP when they won, currently has an issue with the copper that runs from the footpath to the house itself. The last 10 metres of the copper. This took two visits by a Telstra technician to verify. […]

Google Chrome Notification Icon – how to get rid of it on OSX

Sat, 31 May 2014 06:54:16 +0000

If you use Chrome on MAC OS X you may recently have noticed a really annoying “bell” icon that has appeared in the menu bar, which also had the super-annoying property of not obeying the usual rules for OS X menu-bar icons (such as being draggable off the menu bar entirely). There were a set […]

Python, XML, and databases

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 11:41:02 +0000

People who read this blog regularly (all two of you) might know that my day job involves lots of “enterprise” level technology such as Java, JEE, Spring, heavy duty messaging systems, and Webservices, both of the limber REST species as well as the well-lumbering SOAP type. Also the more attentive reader of the pair of […]

Some code I wrote – a plugin that’s useful to you if you write Pandoc with Sublime Text. It’s on github but you really want to install it via Sublime Text’s Package Control plugin.

How to explain backend changes that support undelivered features

Wed, 04 Dec 2013 01:48:13 +0000

My current work environment is in a cost-pressured large national transport enterprise with a familiar internationally-recognised brand name. We have to build a lot of systems that model many real-world, highly-regulated, parameters and states. This data is often used to feed into other systems that feed the voracious information maw of an often severely critical […]

More about Mail in Mavericks

Sat, 26 Oct 2013 13:17:48 +0000

Well, that’s been nothing but a huge disappointment. It’s confirmed that and Gmail in Mavericks don’t get along. Mail behaves absolutely abominably with the non-standard IMAP of Gmail. I’ve tried the number of tricks listed in that article to get the ship righted again but it’s looking pretty dire. At this post you can […]

The Mail.App in OSX 10.9 is buggy and awful

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 17:55:01 +0000

The Apple in Mavericks is a terrible step backwards. Smart mailboxes behave flakily – I’ve got one that’s called “All unread” (it’s rule is simply “message is unread”) and it said that there were 5 messages unread, until I click on it and suddenly there’s 21 unread messages. This is true of any Smart […]

OSX 10.9 ‘Mavericks’ and ‘Spaces’

Thu, 24 Oct 2013 01:15:56 +0000

One of the more interesting changes in Mavericks is the way it now handles multiple screens and what was called “Spaces” (is it still even called that?)(yes, yes it is). Previously if I had a second monitor attached to my MacBook Pro, both screens always changed when I switched Spaces. It was like each Space […]
