Working with David Cui (Zuizin) on EyeSpy for macOS

Lately I've been working on various projects with several new #freelance #iOS#Swift #mobileapp developers, including David Cui (Zuizin).

David is helping us update the illumineX, inc. cartoon-eyes toy, EyeSpy (for macOS), which we've been ignoring for a few years.

David is enthusiastic, professional, and effective. He's the type of developer who likes to leave a campsite cleaner than he found it.

While doing routine maintenance on the product (updating it for Swift 5 and Xcode 11.5) he noticed there was a tiny bit of test code accidentally left in the product for years, and causing a little glitch. He brought it to our immediate attention, and fixed it.

David also cleaned up and modernized our In-App Purchase system, which hadn't had any attention for a few years. It turns out that even though our IAP store had been working in sandbox testing in the lab, it had been failing silently about 1/3 of the time in production. Doh!

The IAP system in EyeSpy is a well-oiled machine, now, thanks to David's attention to detail and thoughtful approach to what was originally thought to be a routine maintenance project.

I enjoy working with David and recommend him very highly to any iOS team.

Blogs: Not dead, yet!

If you're a blogger, you might find this essay, recently shared to YCombinator's Hacker News from a blog, to be of interest. It's perhaps a little pessimistic, but has some fair observations about the state of affairs in the #blogosphere. 
If I could bring one thing back to the internet it would be blogs It's almost impossible now to find a blog that's not on a focused theme because that's what search engines focus on and how websites profit. But you want the opposite, a blog that never tried to focus or even thought about it.  The observations about the role of the only search engine that presently matters, Google, in the state of the blogosphere are worthy of consideration. In the discussion at Hacker News, the author was criticized a bit for saying that Google Blogger was "dead" —which itself seems a pretty fair criticism if not strictly accurate in a pedantic sense. Google basically abandoned Blogger in place years ago. Sure, our own illumineX blo…

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…
