mm coffee

It has been a bit of work these past few days, but I managed to get the native
(Cocoa) OS X version of NINJAM nearly fully functional. So hot. The whole Cocoa
and Objective C thing is pretty decent, I must say. Takes a bit of getting used
to, but it ends up feeling a lot like PHP (i.e. with autorelease objects that
you don't have to worry about). I probably have a ton of memory leaks that I
haven't noticed, though.  Too bad it doesn't have the uber-easiness (and 
obvious of function names) and uber-well-documentedness (I find at times that 
a particular method has been deprecated, but without explanation or a 
replacement method) of PHP. Anyhoo, when we do finally release, Mac people 
(Mac using musicians, too!) might be happy too. Just gotta get text scrolling
for the chat box working, and do a bunch of preference items. Yay.

really? part of the goal of Cocoa team is to create intuitive, consistent API names - particularly names that suggest parameters clearly. if you're worried about leaks, run the app under ObjectAlloc (in Performance Tools) and they should be clear. yay for apps on mac.

mainly you just end up digging a TON finding out functions to do a particular task.. You'll look at the class itself, then any (all) of the supers...
