Cocoa/Video Job

I've got a lead on a good (Cocoa) programming job. The job entails importing and playing video, drawing colored lines and rectangles over the video, and allowing users to step through the video frame by frame. The product also includes a video library full of short videos that need to be played (or used for […]

Though eventual Bloglines integration is planned for PulpFiction, those wishing to get a head start on the whole thing should check out Bloglines in PulpFiction Newsreader. An XSL file marries PulpFiction to bloglines, and full instructions are included. Check it out!

I'll be brief and expose the details to those who are potential candidates. I have a standing offer to write a book covering Cocoa software development, and am seeking a co-author. The former co-author was/is, well, quite bad to be as gentle as possible, and so I am looking for a replacement. Incredible command of […]

We use a few defaults in PulpFiction to control the badge, and though you can't ever change them in the UI, they're quite accessible to those who what they're doing. The keys are FSSDockBadgeColor, FSSDockBadgeTextColor, and FSSDockBadgePosition. Here are some pertinent code snippets. You should be able to figure out what you need to do […]

PulpFiction 1.2.1

PulpFiction 1.2.1, a bug fix release, is now available. Primarily designed to fix an issue with the Lite version, we were able to sneak in a few fixes and improvements for PulpFiction itself. Here's the changelog: Articles are no longer marked read when the preview pane is collapsed. Clicking on the dock with no windows […]

My friend Dave just let me know that PulpFiction earned 4½ mice in the March issue of Macworld. Better still is the fact that they reviewed PulpFiction 1.1.1 which, though a good piece of software, lacks quite a few nice features found in PulpFiction 1.2. Macworld's Buying Advice: We were excited to see so many […]

It just occurred to me today that 50% of the original staff of Cocoa Dev Central (Me, Jeff, Jason, Andy, Brad, Brian) worked or works for Apple. Andy's in Austria and hasn't applied, Brad is enjoying his role in life and hasn't applied, and Brian is quite young still (and has not applied). Nifty!

College students will have the support of our entire library of code, our help, our promotion, etc. Pay will […]

PulpFiction 1.2 is now available. PulpFiction Lite 1.2 will be available later today or tomorrow. Over the past ten days, we've been counting down some of PulpFiction's new features. A quick recap of the ones I like most: Smart Folders Enclosures support Wide view Local feed support NetNewsWire Stylesheet support Authenticated feeds More control over […]

Tomorrow, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the past ten days, I've discussed one of PulpFiction's new features. Today's is the last one prior to its release, and it is my favorite. Today's feature: smart folders. If you can filter by something, you can likely create a smart folder by it as well. […]

On January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator. Today's feature: support for enclosures. Enclosures are included in the preview pane and can be downloaded as a result of filter actions. The files are just downloaded, but […]

On January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator. Today's feature: wide view. PulpFiction can now toggle between standard view and wide view, with folders in a drawer (left or right), an article list left, and the […]

On January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator. Today's feature is one I've used several times myself: we've added support for local feeds. Local feeds are simply XML files that live on your disk. I've created […]

On January 20*, we'll be releasing PulpFiction 1.2. On each of the next ten days, I'll be discussing a new feature we've added to my favorite aggregator. Today's feature is a simple one: we've added support for "another aggregator's" stylesheets. They load within PulpFiction's "Web Display" preferences in their own section. So now, not only […]

Are there any database-knowledgeable golfers out there? Or perhaps a golf-knowledgeable database administrator? I'm working on a little project and am trying to set up a database. Database design is important, and if the database is simple I (anyone) can do it. This one's a little more complex. Starting with the right design will save […]
