  • Posted to Very proud of our company's rebrand of one of Canada’s largest telcos, Eastlink. Check out what we did :), Jun 04, 2018

    This was an odd post to see. Saw Eastlink, then the Chickenburger article, then looked at the Revolve domain. I work on the floor above your office.

    Glad to hear it! I mainly use the Music app for songs that I can't access through most streaming services, be it because the songs aren't very well known, the artists or bands "don't believe in streaming", geo-locking, etc.

    I've probably missed any mention of it if it was on the page, but is my understanding correct in that I'll no longer be able to add my own music to my iPhone, unless I'm using a 3rd party music app?

    "Tracks" for me. I'm trying to get through every Megadeth studio album before the end of the day!

  • Posted to Album with three different covers - good or bad?, Nov 18, 2014

    System of a Down did something like with their "Steal This Album" CD, but it was the design on the CD's themselves that were different, as the album didn't really have a traditional cover/booklet. Each band member created their own limited edition version, and there was also a more generic version.

    You mentioned all of the covers would be based on paintings by the same artist. I think that's a good plan to help keep consistency, which is always nice!

  • Posted to Ask DN: What file naming convention do you use?, Nov 14, 2014

    Whatever convention you decide upon, I would suggest using dashes in place of underscores.

    Should you ever need to rename part of a filename for some reason, or if you were to copy a large number of filenames for editing in a text editor for example, you can use CTRL (Command on Macs I think?) plus the left and right arrow keys to quickly jump between words or blocks of numbers. Example, using a | as a stand in for your cursor:

    • |YYMMDD-project-lastname.whatever
    • YYMMDD-|project-lastname.whatever
    • YYMMDD-project-|lastname.whatever
    • YYMMDD-project-lastname.|whatever

    Using underscores, if you were to try the same thing, it would only place your cursor at the beginning or end of the filename. You would then have to press the left or right keys for every single character in the filename. Example:

    • |YYMMDDprojectlastname.whatever
    • YYMMDDprojectlastname.|whatever

    It might seem trivial, but if you're at all interested in saving as many spare seconds of your time to equal large savings in the long run, it's definitely something to look into.

    I read somewhere that it's not available in Canada yet, or won't be for some time. All I get when I visit that link is an empty YouTube page.

    You think they would have setup some sort of "We're sorry, this service is not available in your country yet" or something like that. Instead, it just looks like it's not loading properly, at least IMO.

  • Posted to Video: Using Apple Pay at McDonalds - iOS 8.1 on iPhone 6, in reply to Johnny Lam , Oct 21, 2014

    Thanks for the reply. That's good to know should I ever make a trip to the states and don't want to look odd when ordering at a restaurant!

    It's probably a better system anyways. Saving a small amount of time just asking for a meal by number instead of it's full name, and only having to listen for a meal number instead of the full meal name, or having the staff member at the cash register just look at you and then point to your food.

    Adding to that, paying with Apple Pay would seem to speed up the process even further. (It looked like there was a slight hickup initially in your video?) I've always noticed that McDonalds debit machines seem to be faster than most places I pay with debit/credit at, but they seem to take roughly the same amount of time as paying with cash instead. Would you say the process feels faster using Apple Pay instead of either regular debit or paying with cash?

  • Posted to Video: Using Apple Pay at McDonalds - iOS 8.1 on iPhone 6, Oct 21, 2014

    Very cool! Off topic, but I'm assuming this was at a US McDonalds? I only ask as from any of the ones I've ever been to (I'm from Canada), I've always asked for the name of the meal or items themselves (Not meal numbers. "A Big Mac" instead of "A number 3"), and then just wait off to the side to get my order (No waiting for an order number to be called out).

    Is the way things go in this video pretty standard practice in the US, or perhaps it's just at larger/busier McDonalds?
