  • Moving forward I don’t think I would ever accept working on another mixed ObjC / Swift app. It has to be one or the other. Using Swift with Objective-C concessions is awful.

  • Flexing my AppKit muscle memory to add some UI to what has been a networking only side project to date. Working with NSTableView and NSTextView + dynamic cell height is no fun but it’s kind of working.

  • Even Gordon Ramsay is doing unboxing videos on YouTube. Pixel 3. www.youtube.com/watch

  • Been experimenting with some Swift design patterns in a side project and a little in a client project. I’ve never been happy with my form abstractions. Any code out there you like? Just form data and validation. Not UI rendering.

  • A bit grumpy today. 🙁

  • Happy Friday everyone! Mixed feels since I still have a lot to do for my weekly checklist but it’s mostly fun side project stuff so happy times regardless.

    Any big plans for the weekend yourself?

  • Gotta catch ‘em all!

  • Got out of the apartment today for some coffeeshop fueled writing. Pretty happy with the result. Sad I’m such a slow writer but oh well. Tonight back to Xcode some some network stack hacking.

  • If I was running Square I’d put the Final Fantasy team on a new 2D project, something outside the FF lore. Something where the tools wouldn’t get them off track and they could focus on gameplay and story. Sadly best I can tell it’s only gotten worse with the FF7 remake.

  • I didn’t care for FF 15 and I really wanted to like it. Found this video today which was entertaining and did a great job pointing out many of the issues.
