I've spent days trying to figure out why Xcode would crash after archiving a new version of Scribble. It wasn't App Clips, Xcode Beta, or Cocoapods.

It turns out, Xcode can only handle 255 archives so the 256th will cause it to crash. ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™‚๏ธ

OMG, that's hilarious. Project Zero found vulnerabilities in Symantec's unpackers (ala UPX). They sent a reproduction sample via email as a password "protected" archive. That crashed the server, as it triggered the vulnerability. Antivirus bad. pic.twitter.com/p7ZPuqMEZQ

Thinking of the time the WiFI was down at the coffee shop, and the barista walked up to a customer to tell them "I'm sorry, we can't make pourover coffee when there's no internet" https://t.co/bIwjbYGrJU

It was easier to change the language of biology than to fix the default in excel- or to alter researcher habits.

I think about this every time a software developer uses the word "just". https://t.co/w9GdSiASlH

BTW, the video for this talk is up!https://t.co/afIdYdVKmM

I'm not a particularly good speaker, so I'd actually recommend the linked transcript instead of the talk itself unless you strongly prefer video or audio, though ๐Ÿ˜… pic.twitter.com/ShFROKSmcu

Late last June, Google bought out "North," a tech company based in Waterloo, ON, which manufactured "Focals," a line of "smart glasses." A month later, the company is turning off the servers the glasses rely on, bricking every pair they ever sold.https://t.co/zh3XQ6pyUR
