Definitely isn’t that we’ve heroified any white dude with a uniform and gun to the point that there is no expectation of accountabilityKind of a weak closing there, don’t you think?http://t.co/rotrSFrbCq “…beyond Ferguson, we won’t know without better data why grand juries are so reluctant to indict police officers.”12 things white people can do now after #Ferguson http://t.co/9ZxUGN8j9z

Jim Jefferies on Gun Control http://t.co/hs4SEnEyYOSwift without mutable variables feels a hell of a lot like writing Lisp. Just don’t tell that to the Cocoa community. Might scare ‘em.The lesson here I think is that sometimes, just sometimes, state is pretty okayThere’s a bunch of gameplay bugs but getting it perfect wasn’t really part of the exercise here 😜I built Tetris in Swift — without using mutation (almost at all): https://t.co/Dfo32iWmvk Only `var`s are for handling the host view.2014 is posited to be the most erratic year of my life. Not sure if that’s good or bad yet.
I wrote some words on Swift’s Optionals targeted at Objective-C devs who’ve been reluctant to dig into it. http://t.co/uMyZhalV6d@alexnaj what have you got against pumpkin flavored things@engers it’d be worlds better with a slightly less black black. I think I can better than both tho :D@engers I’d agree if they had picked one that was easy to read 😜 I guess they wanted to look playful? But it’s an app for reading text!@engers 1) font choice 2) awkward margins and weird use of white space 3) line spacing looks off 4) contrast is off http://t.co/oOafOKNzwt@engers but I also want regex filtering, better image loading, and downloading of other threads while you’re reading. I got big plans@engers I hate everything about the typography in the AMA. I spend the most time reading r/AskReddit, that’s my #1 improvement priority@sturmen you must use Android so you can’t see how ugly and unappealing it isA little better but not exactly pretty. http://t.co/jnClsj5meEStarted writing a Reddit client for iOS.

Dad vs. Autocorrect http://t.co/cgKMJ1iof9Symbolic breakpoints just not working in Xcode 🆗Man, I love Chasing Amy. One of my favorite Kevin Smith films.
@engers true, I should probably do this. I already keep my phone on Do Not Disturb most of the time anywayIt’d be nice if I could opt out of libc defs for autocomplete in Xcode. I never, ever want the `index(3)` function you dumb computer program@engers exactly it’s absurdly obnoxious especially since the default Messages for Mac ping noise is annoying as hellIt’s very un-Apple to not have made text message forwarding prefer one device if your computer & phone are sitting right next to each other.
@alexnaj Aren’t those the same thing thoI have to contantly remind myself how old I amSomewhere in LA, a 19-year-old who hasn't sold a series to CN yet is sighing with relief. RT“@ColleenDoran: Yes. http://t.co/8nmQHLKm0C
Retweeted by jp@jc4p ya. You think they gave him shit after the ex-employee AMA and this was just the icing on the cake?@jc4p ya I believe it myself, not that it makes any less silly https://t.co/udrP0X9xvp@jc4p the thing I don’t understand is why they’d bother making up a story like that."adults under 35 have a savings rate of -2 percent, according to Moody's Analytics." http://t.co/0tc2HQTr4g NEGATIVE percent.

Decaf coffee is so unsatisfying I’d almost rather continue being sickI always assumed it would be a garbage pointer like any other scalar value and never questioned that assumption. https://t.co/YjnHYOfXTCTIL: “…for object pointers … the compiler will automatically set the variable to nil if you don’t specify any other initial value”This cold or whatever is wrong with me finally beat out my last bottle of DayQuil. And I only have one tea bag left. It’s winning the war.
@engers getting rid of my desk huh? oh okay i see how it is :’(@nicklockwood ya :) it’s a little strange that Swift classes aren’t req to inherit NSObject like in Obj-C when the RT often depends on it@nicklockwood ex. put in a Swift class that doesn’t inherit NSObject, then try and print the set. Doesn’t impl methodSigForSel: & will crash@nicklockwood to get hash/isEqual. AnyObject can def blow up in a set though. Swift classes only partially conform to NSObjectWhich deity to do I need to bribe in order to be able to breath normally again. I’ll throw in extra if they make the coughing stop.@nicklockwood if you’re requirement is putting it in an NSSet, then you’d want <T: NSObject>@nicklockwood yup.

Three days later: still sick.

Jeeeez. https://t.co/rZGlsvspfM@watchinharrison https://t.co/rZGlsvspfM a little verbose, but this seems to do the trick@jc4p doctor banging on the tardis was also a very powerful scene"Never trust a hug.

Retweeted by jp@jc4p wow ya totally opposite opinion. But I thought kill the moon was okay so shrugWell done, Moffat.
Kind of crazy how horribly broken strings are in SwiftWriting code is essentially grunt work. Knowing how to design systems that scale & don’t need to be rewritten every six months is invaluableThe more consulting work I do the more clear it becomes that architecture design is a far more lucrative skill than programming itself.@steipete @oletterer clever!@markcwebster @gdcaplan wow this is seriously cool…Not needing a physical office is my favorite part of being a dev. I’ve got this crazy strong urge to go on an extended working road trip.@jc4p \o/Problem solved http://t.co/s4OfKIjNExWhere’s a hot toddy when you need one
@jc4p that was my favorite one dear god so funny@jc4p did you watch the others in that reddit thread!? holy fuck I was laughing so hardXcode crashing every time I use Open Quickly or Project Search. I guess today is a good day as ever for a night off.
Drink every time I go back and realize I was dumb enough at some point to name a property `description`. Go!@engers sanity what’s thatThough, it was a pretty good exercise in wrangling some crazy legacy code. Plus, you know, whatever it takes to pay the bills 😜My personal hell is having to work on a codebase with multiple KV observers added to a global user singleton. …is it hot in here or what? 🌋
