Project WONDER nightly build server

Whoo hoo! Mike Schrag has setup a build server for Project WONDER here. This is from his email to the Project WONDER list:

It functions very much like the WOLips nightly build server. Each morning at 5am EST, it does a checkout from the cvs server. If there were any changes, it increments the build number and does a Framework, Application, and Examples build. One difference is that it does not tag cvs with that build number, though it could if people particularly want this.

Great news! Thanks a tonne Mike.

Fix for missing QuickTime stream audio

I tried to watch Apple’s October 5th Special event stream but was stymied by missing audio on my PowerBook. It worked fine on the iMac so I got my fix of Special Event Goodness™ OK.

minusdelta posted a fix he (she/they) found to the Apple forums and I repeat it here:

  • Quit Quicktime.
  • Open /Applications/Utilities/Audio MIDI Setup.
  • Select the Audio tab
  • Set the output to 44100 not 96000 and quit
  • Try again in quicktime.

Weirdest thing…
