illumineX ships EyeSpy 2.2.4 — Googly Eyes for macOS!

EyeSpy 2.2.4 was released today at the Apple App Store for Mac. This release includes a bit of polish to the drifting balloon #GooglyEyes character, Squeaky. 

What's New in EyeSpy 2.2.4

• Corrects issues related to switching characters by normalizing the on-disk saved User Defaults for EyeSpy (which had accumulated cruft from old character IAP data)
• Corrects information in the IAP bundles for the balloon and pending zombie ArtPaX which fixes some character selection issues
• Fixes a bug with the balloon character which caused it to perform a “slide home” animation and sound effect when resizing the balloon
• Improves robustness of IAP system
• Fixes a bug which reset the user’s preferred “home” location if the ballon character was selected with hot keys (Command-Right-Arrow)
• Fixes a bug which led to the ballon occasionally not drifting when “Who let the dogs out?” was selected

Did you know? 

When EyeSpy is the in-focus app (CMD-Tab to switch to EyeSpy from any running app) you can use hot keys to switch between characters.

• Command-RightArrow and Command-LeftArrow cycle through your available characters. 
• Command-UpArrow and Command-DownArrow cycle through the character sizes (Itty Bitty, Normal, and Crazy Big).

We realized this week that EyeSpy is Big in Japan!  Almost 40% of our downloads this month came from Japan.

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:
