Push notifications have a lot of moving parts. To help people figure out where things may not be working (and to make sure everything is enabled), there is a new push notifications screen.
Somehow when I made the Mac client I forgot to enable offline contacts. I was obviously thinking about it because there was a toggle for it in the preferences but for some reason it was never hooked to anything. Quite an oversight. One which has been resolved now in the Continue Reading
I have decided I want to maintain a list of good, free XMPP servers. Primarily as a way of steering people away from Google. Additionally, assuming the owners of these servers are ok, I’m thinking of including registration links in app. I think a lot of people — including myself Continue Reading
For a variety of reasons, I’ve been staying up late at night these days. This gives me time to do the kind of coding I wouldn’t do normally. UI work. It’s mindlessly easy and I find it relaxing like some people find coloring books relaxing. I know it’s an important Continue Reading
As I’ve purged and rewritten a lot of code recently, I am revisiting things that I implemented in 2009 and then never really looked at again — why fix something that is working? Cell sizing in a table view used to be a real pain an involved a decent amount Continue Reading

Google talk was great when it came out but has been abandoned by Google. I’ve been maintaining support because I know a lot of people use it, but I myself will stop using it. I’m going to try using an account on the hot chilli server rather than run my Continue Reading
Monal hasn’t been very good about showing you what it sees on your server. This results in debugging issues becoming just a shot in the dark. I did add verbose logging to beta versions but that’s not something the average user has any use for. To rectify that, I am Continue Reading
