It's amazing it took me this long to start using Xcode for Python stuff. My usual minimalist, works-everywhere setup is screen, vim and a set of reflexes dating from the Age Of Green Pixels, and it has served me well up to now.
But this afternoon I decided to put all that wasted disk space under /Developer to good use (I seldom use it except to poke around in Cocoa stuff). I created an Xcode project for my Snakelets tree, pointed its SCM handling at my Subversion server, and let it rip.
Fifteen minutes later I fired up Console, dragged and dropped my server log onto it, and was pretty much in heaven. Xcode is full of little nothings that remind me from my MPW days (way before I was forced to take up Visual C++ and its mammoth IDE), but a server log viewer doesn't seem to be one of them.
- Microsoft Live. Ouch.
- Gaim has been ported to Maemo - cool. All I need now is an SSH-enabled Remote Desktop client.
- BBHub is crawling with Blackberry/8700 shots and trivia.
- Via pfig, iView Media Pro 3 is out. The trial is a gazillion times faster than iPhoto, reads my Canon/EOS 350D RAW/CR2 files without a hitch, and knows how to use metadata properly. Unless iPhoto gets fixed real soon, I'll probably be switching (I have a feeling that all its functionality will work on my iBook, something that doesn't happen with iPhoto...)
- In the meantime, I also missed photoDrop.
