I am working with an app which is updated infrequently every few months. This time it was necessary to build with the SDK iOS 9.0. But when I want to build the app using XCode I got this error:
“This app is not allowed to query for scheme cydia”
BUT WHO THE HELL is Cydia? Because I never used Jailbroken devices I didn’t know that Cydia is the App Store alternative for jailbroken devices. My App uses Splunk MINT for monitoring and they call the scheme “cydia://” to check if a device is jailbroken, because most jailbroken devices have Cydia installed. Anyway. This was the message everything started with and finally led to a chain of updating different parts.
Moving to a new domain can smash your Google ranking – unless you tell Google about it. If you are a user of Google’s Search Console aka Webmaster Tools you have the option to use the “Change of Address” page which can be found in the settings.
I like the AWS Data Pipeline and love to start EMR clusters with it. Unfortunately it’s currently not possible to use the EMR-4.0.0 release when starting a EMR cluster using the pipeline. You currently just find the amiVersion option in the EmrCluster options. Which is bad if you like to use a Hadoop version greater than 2.4.0. This is not supported in the highest amiVersion 3.9.0.
This is the most up-to-date configuration you can get:
What does Amazon says to this? I just found this comment in the forum:
currently emr-4.0.0 is not supported on Datapipeline, we are working on it but at the moment I cannot provide and ETA on this.
Good news everyone. We have updated and refurbished the Activity Timer for OS X. Now you can manage your activities with less mouse clicks. We have also added the long wished keyboard shortcut functionality for starting and stopping the timer.
The “smart” input allows you to define activity times using values like “1min” or “4h” or even “10:30:30. With this you can define more accurate activity lengths. Give it a try, it still integrates smoothly into the status bar.
We have just released a neat, clean & terrific theme for the blogging platform Ghost. It has been build using Gulp, Bourbon, Neat and other fine stuff. It’s freely available on the official Ghost marketplace.
The main reason for me to develop software is and was always because it’s fun and I love creating things. And most of the time it starts with a little problem, for which I need some kind of software-based solution.
First I stumbled across the Pomodoro Technique couple of months ago and I really loved the simple approach of optimising the daily tasks using well defined small time periods.
After a while I thought that I need the simplest timer possible which integrates smoothly into my Mac OS X system. There was no such timer application in the App Store which satisfied me and so I started to create this little app.
Some users who installed the timer, use it in the same way I use it. But because it’s relatively generic and not only focussed on the Pomodoro Technique it can be used also for other timing tasks. One of the most interesting usages is the one I recognised based on a rating in the App Store:
I really like this approach and it also makes me happy – not only because it’s a good rating :). It makes me happy mainly because it also shows the diversity of the people, which is in my opinion one of the best things in mankind.
