Rumour has it that Colette Mullenhoff is only the second woman to win a Sci-Tech award.  Of course, the number should have trebled Saturday night with +Rachel Petterson and Colette should have two!

Xcode 6.1 Ad Hoc Provisioning...

For those of you who are interested, I was finally able to solve the mystery of the failed ad hoc distribution of my iOS app.  Sadly, this rocky road is strewn with so many pitfalls that no one was really able to come up The Answer; however, the answer to the most important question, "How do you debug this?" is a little better than the dart throwing exercise it seemed to be.

In Xcode 6, open the Devices window (Shift-Command-2) and plug in your iOS device.  At the bottom of the window is a Console drawer tab.  You can view NSLog entries and the errors and warnings during the installation attempt.  Now, interpreting those entries is another matter entirely...

As for the actual cause of the ad hoc failure, well, it was all about entitlements.  Troubleshooting guides at Apple detail at a somewhat gross level what should match (see the photo) but when you create your AppID you'll notice that you cannot remove the GameCenter and In-App Purchases services.  Should these be turned on in your Xcode app?  And if so, why don't they appear in your entitlements?

I noticed that the entitlements listed in the Archive just before ad hoc export did not list these, and so I became suspicious of what was necessary and what wasn't.  It took me several hours across several weekends, but YES!  This is the issue.  The entitlements listed here must be present when Xcode signs your code.  AFAIK, it is only these entitlements that you must match (signing and provisioning).

Don't be fooled by trying to use the Plist editor to add these to an entitlements file in your target.  Because the keys listed here were not listed as choices in the Plist editor I lost an entire day exploring this avenue.  In desperation I just cut and pasted the dictionary entry from a failed embedded.mobileprovisioning file I extracted from the app bundle.  These entitlements were keychain-access-groups, get-task-allow, application-identifier, and com.apple.developer.team-identifier.  Also, when you copy in your entitlements file to the build, don't forget to check the "Target" checkbox so it's part of the build solution.

I've now spent a total of 3 times as many hours chasing down this issue as I did coding the entire app.  Needless and sad.

I wrote a flashcard app for iOS ages ago. I'd like to use it again. But I can't face the hoops I'll need to go through.

A good friend of mine is selling his NSR250.  I think it's jealous of his RC30.  California plated and titled.  Rare.  Not cheap.
Clean title. CA registration. Ready to ride on the street. I bought it 2nd hand. Don't know the actual milage. Runs great. Minor scratches (see photo). Otherwise the cleanest NSR I've seen. Tyga-performance race pipes. Comes with ENGLISH shop manual and parts list. New battery (original sat ...

This should leave a smile on your face a little less lethal than Beauregard's final grin -- may he be swingin' by his gracefully tail for all eternity.

My neighborhood association is sponsoring an effort to have a bathroom installed at the "boatpark" playground at 45th Ave & Lincoln Blvd. in the Outer Sunset.  We've been meeting with Katy Tang (SF District 4 Supervisor) for several months and are in the process of competing for SF Community Action Funds.  If you think it's a bad idea for your kids to play in the midst of human waste around the bushes and hedges lining the playground, then take a few moments to sign this online petition.

BTW, I wasn't kidding about the poop.  It's true!  Children use the bushes for emergencies all the time.  Gross.

If you'd like to help the Mount Diablo territories this is the place to do it.  SMD is the caretaker and guardian of many of the lands surrounding Mount Diablo and sponsors the annual Mt. Diablo Challenge, the most important race on my calendar.
Since Save Mount Diablo's founding in 1971, preserved open space has increased from less than 7000 acres to over 110000 acres in more than 40 parks. Mount Diablo is still threatened by development. That could mean the loss of wildlife corridors, ecosystems and recreational opportunities.

"She went for the emergency medical kit and turned up the heating in the hold, but when she got back to the stretcher, the cold, blank-faced Banks was dead."
