Raven Zachary, holding iPhone upside-down

  1. Funny. It would be a FAIL if I didn't know up from down, for sure. I was speaking in front of 400 people on stage and I pulled out my iPhone from my pocket to talk about the connected nature of the device. It happened to be upside down in my pocket and I didn't even look at the front while holding it. I'm glad to see that someone finally noticed it other than me. I've used this photo for years and laughed at it from time to time.

  3. I think this falls into the category of ... if you can't find anything better to criticize, then they must be doing pretty well. ;)

  4. @ravenme... I agree. I just thought your web site was so beautiful and well organized and, well, nearly perfect, that the upside-down phone leapt off the page. I've decided that it's reminiscent of the perfect flaw concept of japanese pottery.

Data Recovery from bad RAID 1 mirrored volume on Mac OS X

If you're reading this page, it's because you are trying to find good advice on how to recover data from a bad mirrored drive, also known as RAID 1 (one) on Mac OS X or Mac OS X Server 10.4 (Tiger) or 10.5 (Leopard).First, as it says on the cover of the good book, don't panic. Take a deep breath, and take your time.It's very likely that you can recover your data [NOTES 1, 2] in this situation (a probable bad disk in a RAID 1 mirror). The path to doing so is unfortunately not as obvious as it might seem, and not as obvious as it perhaps should be, but it's pretty simple.Read a whole lot about the subject before you try anything, understand what each tool does before you use it, and then read and think some more before you take the first step.Before You BeginNow, a bit of background. Typically in such a situation (a bad drive in a RAID 1 mirror) one would expect to be able to "break" the RAID 1 mirror, using the software controls you used to establish the m…

A better sample gitignore file for XCode Cocoa projects on Mac OS X (iPhone, too)

When we switched to git last year (from Subversion) we took a little time and beefed up our ignore file. While working on another project recently, I realized that most of the example .gitignore files for Cocoa/MacOSX/XCode on the web are really not terribly complete, and the results can be very frustrating when you're just getting started with a new repository.Here's a better .gitignore example. Let me know if I left anything out. (I saw a few examples from people who exclude the pattern "profile", but as far as I can tell, that's really not a very good idea. I assume they have a specific use case of some kind which eludes my pondering.)The current version of this file can be found on GitHub:
