Pinned toot

👋 I’m Ben Scheirman. I’m a software developer from Houston, where I live with my wife and 5 kids.

I run nsscreencast.com, a site that produces screencasts for iOS & Mac developers.

I also do software development consulting for iOS, Mac, and backends with Rails. You can find out more about this at ficklebits.com.

I do a couple of podcasts with friends (vibrato.fm and appdevdiary.com)

If neglected blogs are of interest to you, you can find mine at benscheirman.com!

Reminder: I’m doing a live stream playing some guitar and playing around with Guitar Rig 5.

12:15pm CST today

I’m pleased to announce Ejector, an app that gives new purpose to your ⏏️ key. Without a CD drive, this key does nothing; now it shows all your mounted drives and volumes and helps you eject them.

The app has a 7 day trial, and costs $10

ejector.app

Have had 2 really annoying support cases in 2 days (with both @stripe@twitter.com and @heroku@twitter.com) where the support person didn’t read my question properly.

I don’t mind waiting for an answer, but what’s the point if they aren’t going to even read your question.

As of today, the new CEO of @NintendoAmerica@twitter.com is named Doug *Bowser*. Let's all take a moment to process this information and reconsider whether or not we really are living in a simulation.

ew, why

The renaming of "Open in Finder" to "Show in File Manager" in @AtomEditor is the most cross-platformie decision ever.

Really, the CTRL+ALT+CMD+G to re-run the last test has been an incredible productivity boost in . Fixing tests is a lot nicer now! 🚀
