The title of Episode 9

should be NSResponder. I see you have it spelled correctly on the right sidebar, so it seems to be just a typo in the announcement title.

Feel free to erase this post after you have fixed the problem. I wanted to e-mail you privately, but I could not find a way to do that.




Thanks for pointing it out, now fixed

These two look to be pretty

These two look to be pretty promising, important episodes. Please ask Mr. Hillegass about an updated and expanded version of The Book for the impending 10.5 release.

Yes, please do.

I am very courious about the next revision of the book. I want to buy it, but I'd prefer to have an updated book with all the Leopard goodies. God knows there's plenty of that, especially relating to garbage collection and properties.

By the way, you didn't talk about the funding needs of the podcast (or did I miss it?). You said that you'll discuss it in this week's episode.
