They're everywhere, I know. I wrote about some earlier ones here and today I discovered a new case in Preview. Dragging a proxy icon to the trash did nothing. But opening the trash and dragging the proxy icon to the trash can's window properly moved the file to the trash. Perhaps now that things like [...]
Here's what I need to be able to do: Play video via Flash, including support for slow-speed and frame-by-frame playback. Position a second layer of Flash above the movie along with some basic drawing tools. Save the drawings (lines, circles, etc.) to the proper spots in the video in such a way that the drawing [...]
Can those of you with copies of Cyndicate try this please and report back? These are the commands you'll enter in the Terminal (with Cyndicate not running). If you're uncomfortable in the Terminal, skip this post entirely. First, note the size of your "Cyndicate.cyndata" file. % cd Library/Application\ Support/Cyndicate/Cyndicate.cyndata/ % sqlite3 dataStore.sql SQLite version 3.6.12 [...]
Rivet uses a free library named jhead to read EXIF information from JPEG files. In its pre-built state, it's a PowerPC-only library, and I was recently reminded of this when I viewed a few hundred pictures on my Xbox 360 and then returned to my Mac to see a few hundred instances of Software Update [...]
Rivet 2.2.4 is now available. Originally the plan was to release Rivet 2.2.2, but a few problems necessitated a few more updates. This update is free and it fixes the Snow Leopard issue where a thumbnail was not always generated. It also fixes the issue with streaming MP4 video files to the PS3. They should [...]
Scorecard 2.2 is now available for download from Cynical Peak's website for both Mac and Windows! Scorecard 2.2 adds the ability to export your statistics to HTML: the index page will now automatically show a "Stats" tab with your current stats using all rounds played after your master marker date. It fixes a few little [...]
Rivet 2.2.1 is out. It adds a option to turn off generating thumbnails and also fixes an issue with the thumbnail caching. Grab it - it's a free update. As we all know, too, Snow Leopard comes out in a few days. I'm happy to report that all Cynical Peak software, like Rivet and Scorecard [...]
Question for the Rails developers out there… Suppose you have a video file (a .mov or .mp4 or .m4v or whatever) and you're going to use JWPlayer or another flash-based application to "play" the video on a user's browser, but you want to obfuscate and hide the actual location of the video so that the [...]
What's your favorite method of technical support? Support Email Company Support Forum Phone Call (if available) AIM/Twitter/chat with Developer Ask Other Users/Friends Search Engine(s) View Results Personally, I tend to hate registering in a forum just to ask a question, but I like forums because I can find the answer for myself most of the [...]
Cyndicate, our desktop application for aggregating and reading RSS and Atom feeds, is now $19.95.
http://erik.thesandtrap.com/ - click the "stats" tab. It's not an earth-shattering feature, but publishing the stats along with the rounds is new, and it should help people coordinate with their instructors, compare themselves to their buddies, etc.
Scorecard 2.1 is now available for download from Cynical Peak's website for both Mac and Windows! Scorecard 2.1 changes the way nine-hole rounds are matched for stats to provide a more accurate picture of your abilities. In Scorecard 2.0, 9-hole rounds were paired to form an 18-hole round for all stat calculations with the restriction [...]

Added metadata support for the date and duration of movies. Improved loading speed of photo thumbnails. Improved parsing speed of media and libraries. Fixed display [...]
Scorecard 2.0 for the iPhone is finally available. The approval process for iPhone apps seems to have been delayed - badly - due to WWDC, so we're glad it's finally approved. After all, we shipped the desktop app some time ago. Don't believe the reviews, either (currently 2 of 5 stars). The app works beautifully, [...]
