Bugs… :/

Posted 2009.04.14 20.31 in iPhone by Stephanie

I discovered a bug in PassGenR today. 🙁

It’s an odd one – it did not exist in the iPod Touch, but it does occur on the iPhone. Both are running the same version too — 2.2.1 (the latest version).

It does prove the point that you really need more than one device to test on; ideally I guess someone would have both a 1st and 2nd generation iPod Touch, and a 1st and 2nd generation along with a 3G iPhone.

Then of course you’ll want to test on every available firmware version… sheesh. No wonder professional development is so costly.

Anyways, I was able to find and fix the problem in under an hour, and have sent the new binary to Apple for their approval process. Look for PassGenR 1.01 on the App Store sometime soon.

Computers are Evil

I’m absolutely exhausted, and the servers and routers and switches and cables are all conspiring against me. They laugh at me when I’m not looking, they’re dropping packets all over the floor and leaking bits down the back of the shelves.

At night they must have little fights — or maybe they’re getting up to something naughty — because the cables all get twisted and knotted up into a big tangle.

I don’t know why they hate me so. I try to keep them happy and well-fed. I only get tempted to pour soda pop onto their CPUs after they’ve been acting up. They started it. 

They’re mean and nasty and evil. Stoopid computers. 🙁

p.s. Next time someone mentions the dust on the server shelves, I’m going to tell them that it’s not dust, it’s all the bits we keep losing from the packet collisions. And I’m going to try and keep a straight face. “Don’t touch it! It’s digital!”

Liber Umbrarum Submitted

Posted 2009.04.14 7.09 in iPhone by Stephanie

My second iPhone app, Liber Umbrarum, has just been submitted to the App Store.

The tentative release-date is set for April 30th, aka May-Day Eve, aka Bealtane.

I will follow-up with a confirmation and download link once it has been approved.

Cheers! — and, Blessed Be!
