Evernote released a new version 1.0.1 of the Safari Clipper for Safari 5.1.1

https://www.evernote.com/shard/s13/sh/308e08ed-3521-42ca-81fa-703ff88e1a7b/3c900009ae7e7ab9fccf25cf5e626c05

When you have an older version installed you might see two extensions. The correct one is easy to identify: It's the one that is working. Drag the other one off the toolbar or - better - open the preferences dialog (Cmd+,) and uninstall the older version from there.

Dear Evernote: The whole Evernote Safari web clipper experience is a big disappointment. You are not a tiny company that doesn't have the developers to fix these issues. It's not that we are not paying customers. It's not like Apple hasn't given you access to Lion and Safari 5.1.x how long ago? Months? A year?

Why the heck is it so difficult for you to provide an extension for Safari users?

The SYS(127x) family of functions is among the hidden trouble makers in Visual FoxPro.

Given a reference to a fully initialized form, SYS(1271) returns a string with the name of its SCX file. If the form is stored in a VCX or PRG file, then the function returns a logical value .F. instead. You might expect an empty string in this case, so carefully check the return value type!

While this is an inconsistency that is documented, the second difficulty is a more subtle one. A value that SYS(1271) relies on is only available after the form has actually been loaded. During the Load event SYS(1271) always raises error 43 - Not enough memory to complete operation.

This is important when you have generic code such as an error handler that iterates over the _Screen.Forms collection. As Visual FoxPro adds forms right from the beginning some of the forms in the collection might not yet been fully initialized when executing the Load event raises an error.

A simple fix is to wrap every call to SYS(1271) into a TRY...CATCH block unless you now for sure that the form is already initialized.

Thank you very much, Apple, for showing me what a blue screen looks like on a Mac. It would have been kind, though, to wait until after I saved my code. And, BTW, you might want to update your knowledge base, as this certainly happens on OS X v10.7 Lion, too. It did for me.

By followfish leben die Fische am Land und selten im Meer... Dank eines Trackingcodes kann man genau den Fangort bestimmen. Spannend wird es, wenn man diese Position einmal mit Google Maps anzeigen lässt.

Whoever praises the ease and stability of Apple's Mac has never regularly used Disk Utility. Only Aperture crashes as often, but unlike Disk Utility doesn't require a reboot.

Another Team Foundation Server gotcha: If you add a DBF file through the VFP project manager, then later add the first memo field, VFP won't add the FPT file automatically.

Just discovered that BeyondCompare can save a snapshot of a directory and compare against this later on a different machine. Great for syncing files to another computer when there's no VPN connection between the two.

Another problem with Lion: My LaCie backup drive isn't recognized (as aren't most non Apple drives basing on Linux). Apple discontinued a protocol, LaCie doesn't update the firmware because the drive is too old (over 18 months).

It should be possible to reconfigure the system but that will require a reboot of the Mac... again.

A microphone just appeared in my google search box... Doesn't recognize my name, but still a great start.
