Just a question for the directorates: Has there been a date set for when MH2 is going to start? Last year, the wheels started turning right around now didn't they?

And John, there are a few issues with iClip 4 in Leopard, so I was also wondering when we could expect an update?

hmm... I wish there was a date.
And as for iClip, I have been meaning to buy it soon but haven't... sadly. Maybe I will if a new Leopard iClip comes out wink. I have been using that widget far too long...

Let's turn this into a "guess the date" thread, since I don't expect an answer from the directorate at all...  (here's your chance to make me look bad John wink  )

I'm guessing: Nov 25th (as they probably don't want to work over Thanksgiving like last year).

Thanks!

As for actual question about the MH2 start date... yup, definitely, sure, we have one. And I know that's not the answer you wanted. wink

As for the iClip Leopard issue, we've gotten a bunch of people who've reported this issue that you're seeing but none of us can reproduce it yet. If you or anyone else who's seeing this would submit a System Profiler report to Inventive support, I'd really appreciate it. It's definitely not something that's affecting every user but enough to be a big concern.

In addition to this bug, there's a major one with rich text previews that I'll be fixing for the Leopard update. And there's an iClip lite preview bug that needs fixing too (not to mention the website fixes that are needed for Safari 3).

I'll be switching gears from MH2 planning for a couple of days so that I can get these fixes out.

They had a deal where you entered in a coupon code and got free exhibit hall admission for the three days.  All I would need to do is find a place to stay and pay for a plane, but I doubt that'll happen in 2 months.

Heh. Apparently someone (mdmunoz) wasn't here for the great smiley wars....

Seriously though.  Smiley's can kill page load times and put a hurting on the server, especially when these forums are busy.  A little joke here and there is amusing, but don't  let it get out of hand - ban hammers are no fun (well except John seems to enjoy swinging his wink ).

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't browsers just use the cached version of the smiley once it's viewed? which means you can have 350,000 of them and shouldn't notice much load time difference.

jer2665, you might be right.  I don't know for sure how the page rendering technology works relative to smileys (esp. in different browsers), but your explanation makes sense. 

Thanks for calling me out on the technical explanation.  I was going off memory, without thinking it through all the way.

I don't remember the details of why it was objectionable, though dtl's link above brings back some memories....

well, I wasn't disputing the whole don't overuse smilies, just pointing out it's not because of server load (though in very busy time it could have an effect.) but because the people that do it are annoying.  tongue
