Re: How to set up multiple parallel running processes

isnt tsnet asynchronous? if it is then you get multithreadedness by effect. scheduling can be done lots of ways. i have a cron-ish library at https://github.com/macMikey/mikeys-cron-library . it is designed to be a levure helper but there is no reason why it cant be tweaked so that it is independent...

Re: Add Repeat option for mobileCreateLocalNotification

You don't need to write an external, you need to push the notifications to the users.
One advantage that has is that you have more control over the process.

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

I don't think I agree with LC's marketing staff and skill or lack thereof (but their behavior in this case is odd). I had a couple of conversations with Kevin a couple of years ago about this topic, and I was surprised at how sophisticated they seemed to be with their approach. They still should hav...

Re: BBC article about HyperCard

It's PR and Marketing. What wouldn't you say? Occasionally said individuals converse with news agencies, especially if they've placed an ad with said agency at any time in the last 20 years, because the news agency will be spamming the company regularly. - or - you could go the Wendy's Twitter feed ...

Re: Adding days to a date

Yes but the rest of you already dealt with that, so I was just on mop-up duty.

Re: Adding days to a date

Fun fact and imho a better way to do date math: use dateItems. All math works great and no extra math like dealing with seconds

Code: Select all

put "4/7/19" into tDate
convert tDate to dateItems
add 365 to item 3 of tDate
convert tDate to short date

Re: Reading Push Notifications

One other thing to remember, because sooner or later this will bite you: On iOS, the pushID of the device WILL change periodically (and the user might also disable push notifications, so the pushID would be empty). It can happen when the device gets wiped, when there is a major OS update, when the u...

Re: Reading Push Notifications

ios only because we're not doing android at this time A. There are multiple feature requests for push on ios in the quality center, so you might want to read those since push doesn't work as well as we'd like. Also note that APNS does not guarantee delivery, so it's up to you to manage your data sep...

Re: Strictly for bonkers types

Not sure what you mean by file manager, but I have something started that might resemble a file manager, called scanhammer. It's clunky and in need of love, but its a start.

Re: Pasteurized Arrowkeys

The scripts do not have line numbers, at least the engine does not count them or support this. In some ways that's a pity. :( Structured languages that lack GOTO definitely make some things harder, but line numbers are not a good thing. Line labels seem to be a reasonable tool (even if they can mak...
