iPhone-Simulator Cropper

Saturday, July 25th, 2009

If you’re doing a lot of iPhone work then Oliver Fürniß’s Simulator Cropper can be a major time-saver.

But not as much of a time-saver as completely ignoring Apple’s style guidelines.  Which is always so tempting.

Abstract Classes versus Interfaces

These are two things I think about every once-in-awhile. Usually late at night. While drinking. Heavily.

Also I think about them while writing code. And typically, when I have to make a decision between one or the other, I choose the wrong one. Probably because I’ve never deeply thought about them in an IS-A versus CAN-DO relationship as outlined here.  Which, despite the broken English, is the best overview I’ve ever read on the difference between the two.

Freaking finally.  It must have been the nice note I sent the reviewers on the Fourth of July.

See the Kanji Fuda site for details.

A good, free Outlook duplicate email remover..

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

Following up to my recent post about emails getting sent twice in Outlook, I discovered a nice little free utility to remove (most) of the thousands of duplicate emails I had managed to generate.

ODIR, the Outlook Duplicates Remover from Vaita, adds a convenient de-duper menu item to Outlook.  And it seems to work across all my various IMAP account, Google or otherwise.  I just wish it supported UTF-8.

Recommended for those, who like me, viciously copied themselves twice on all outgoing emails.

PS. To Tee: I did, in fact, find this via bing.  Though, really, you guys should have named it “bong”.

Bong..  Huh huh. Huh.
