Repeating is broken after the first attempt (sometimes?)
*X
Alarm is being moved to expired list on expiration, then when app is restarted, it gets reactivated
*X
If I turn on NSZombieEnabled it doesn't happen.

>X
Non-US (non-English?) localized date formats don't work.
*X
We are not initializing Date::Manip with the correct locale. We need to detect the date format and use it (not necessarily the same as the UI language).
>X
We're not passing non-ASCII characters correctly to Date::Manip.

-CSD means we assume stdin/out is UTF-8.

Finish up date completion: don't try to override user-specified capitalization (e.g. if trying to type "Thursday week")
*X
Or, just add weekdays by themselves to autocomplete list.
>X
Can we switch back to a real combo box? If not, can we autocomplete anyway? This will fix the "today" problem, I think, much more easily. (I tried implementing command-T = today. This was an unmitigated failure: it is a bad, bad UI design.)
*X
What we've got is better than a real combo box, I think.
*X
The tab order is a bit messed up since we replaced the disclosure button. Fix this.
*X
Tab order is borken even with tab-to-everything not enabled. We should wrap.
>X
Display relative dates for today/tomorrow (is there an API for this?)
*X
Apparently not, but we can steal /System/Library/Frameworks/Carbon.framework/Frameworks/HIToolbox.framework/Resources/*.lproj/BrowserControl.strings
*X
Just replace "on" with "today," or "tomorrow,".
*X
For saving/restoring focus: SetFrontProcessWithOptions ( &psn, kSetFrontProcessFrontWindowOnly )?
*X
Switch to tomorrow automatically if necessary when tabbing into "on", just like hiptop Pester
*X
Huh, we still have a NSMovieView in MainMenu.nib?! This shouldn't be, and is breaking SL's IB.

Use something else for the expando button
Sep 1 21:19:45 babs Pester[198]: Instantiating NSNavExpansionButtonCell (superclass of the also dead NSDisclosureButtonCell), which is a private class not used by the AppKit and will be removed. Use an NSButton with NSRoundedDisclosureBezelStyle instead. You can drag one out in IB. Break on _NSInstantiatingDeadDisclosureButton to debug. This will be logged only once. This may break in the future.

And ouch, if new alarm window is in another Space, activation will pop up the alarm window in this Space and switch to the other Space for the new alarm. Yikes.
*X
Here's my basic rationale for the current behavior: choosing "Set Alarm" or using the keyboard equivalent means you want to set an alarm with minimal intrusion. Clicking on the Dock icon means you want to use Pester as a whole, therefore it should switch to whatever Space is appropriate. People can always add Pester to all Spaces if desired.

Beta 9

You can set =, `, etc., as key chars. Not in punctuationCharacterSet.

Readd "– All" via Option key
>X
"Wait for idle" option doesn't work as expected. When the dock icon starts bouncing, Pester comes to the front (because of [PSAlarmAlertController performAlertsForAlarm:]).
*X
PSAlarmNotifierWaitForIdle should act on PSAlarmAlertController as well.
*X
Now, Pester coming to the front stops dock bouncing.
>X
Make Dock bouncing more reliable.
VX
Reproduced 4/2010
VX
Dock icon bounce only works *once* (with bounce, movie, speech only)
*X
Yes, because we never call NMRemove if the alarm isn't dismissed another way
VX
With Pester in front, it bounces forever

But sometimes it doesn't.

Dock icon timings round up, dock menu timings round down
*X
Dock displayed time is a minute off dock menu displayed time
*X
Perhaps this was intentional... but does it explain the following?
*X
62 second timer never updated properly. Oops.
*X
Probably related: Alarm times can be off by up to one second in certain cases. (Yup, this is true.)
*X
Possible solution:
*X
Remove debug logging.
*X
NJRHotKeyField doesn't reset when you switch away from the window (via Spaces or cmd-`); also, it was left justifying when we activated prefs
>X
We need to disable the hotkey while editing; otherwise, you can't assign a superset of that hotkey (setShortcutsEnabled: why don't we use it?)
*X
Enabling shortcuts also seems rather broken right now.
*X
Handle audio devices being plugged/unplugged while Pester is running.

We can just use ceil(...) for generating output but we should not use it for the timer. Go back to fractional seconds and solve the problem.
*X
Actually, no.
*X
Basic issue, just as Peter identified: ceil(...) works fine for <1m, but there's the specific case where we've got a time between x:00 and x:01 instead of x:59 and x:00, the timer goes off, it's set for 60 seconds and the problem just gets perpetrated forever. Maybe just set for slightly more than 60 seconds.

With async initialization being triggered from when the software needs it versus on library initialization, startup time decreases less, to about 0.6 seconds.

NSCalendarDate (deprecated) ⇒ NSCalendar + NSCalendarComponents + NSDate
Prior to 10.9, NSCalendar was not thread-safe, which required the +currentCalendar and -copy/-copyWithZone: methods to make time consuming full copies. This has been improved so that expensive copy operations will be deferred until the object is mutated. If you can avoid calling setter methods on NSCalendar instances, you'll likely get better performance.

Tried this with Shroud; too many problems. We *could* try to use timed alerts in Notification Center for some of it, but probably not worth it.
V
*
What I promised in the Read Me from long ago
• Better repeating alarms, such as a “real time” option so you can schedule an alarm to go off every hour, on the hour, for example.
• Better handling of non-repeating expired alarms—offer the option to have the alarms go off when Pester is restarted?
• Notifications before an alarm goes off, as in xalarm.
• Full localization of all text in the application, not just date and time formats.
• User interface overhaul (Philippe, I am not forgetting :-)

Make the interface simpler, less cluttered.

Interval alarms don't get saved as interval + date; this is a difference from the hiptop Pester

Do this early before people starting using the app much

In particular, make sure we can support everything the hiptop alarm format does

It's weird how this interacts with snooze, so be careful

Do we need two intervals? I think I've thought through time resetting interaction more carefully on the hiptop version.

...or does that interfere with tab-to-increment-date? How about making command key necessary for +/-? Then no autoincrement.

Huh, it seems we never cancel wakeup ever ([PSPowerManager clearWakeTime]). This is dumb.

Get scripting working again
>
Switch scripting to use OSAKit (10.4+)
V
Run script in a separate process (LSUIElement), that way you can kill it when alerts are stopped.
*
Or consider using an XPC service for this on 10.7+.
*
See has's comment on how to call handlers by using objc-appscript
*
Great use case: sending multiple Growl/Prowl notification (see email from Dennitzio dennitzio@yahoo.com)
V
*
In order to support stopping the script, we need to set an active proc and a send proc. From Chris Page:
This is what the "active proc" is for. It is called periodically during script execution and can return an error to stop execution (usually -128).
Note that sending an Apple event can take arbitrarily long amounts of time, and the active proc is not called while waiting on replies. To cancel waiting for the reply, install "send proc" that calls AESend() and passes in an idle proc that checks for cancellation.
*
Got a simple example of aborting scripts in Beep.xcodeproj.
V
OAOSAScript has an ActiveProc but no SendProc (or IdleProc).
*
It seems to try to give events to Cocoa, though.
V
So does NDAppleScriptObject, which is what I was using until I stopped... Gah.
*
code.google.com—NDClasses looks like the newest place for this stuff.
*
But this code is very ugly
*
ASTranslate has a SendProc: osdir.com—msg00065.html
>
Use multiple handlers running in a separate thread (or not?)
*
Perhaps one handler when the alarm stops going off; one when it's going off.
*
We can make these standard handlers with "using terms from app..." - see MultiAd Creator Pro.

>
Try to get hog mode working? Probably not.
>
If hog mode won't work, add a "warning: if other audio is playing through this device, it will get louder while the alarm sound is playing."
*
Or not; just dump it.
>
While we're playing, set to hog mode, and set volume to 100%. We can overlap alerts at will with this and don't have to worry about the volume stack.
V
*
To release hog mode you set the Hog mode PID to -1.
See /Developer/Examples/CoreAudio/PublicUtility/CAAudioHardwareDevice.cpp: CAAudioHardwareDevice::ReleaseHogMode()
*
Or rely on it to happen automatically? See kAudioHardwarePropertyHogModeIsAllowed.
*
One thing to worry about, however: can we affect the volume of speech the way we do with a movie? Yes, there's setVolume: in 10.5+. Just don't make the volume control affect speech on 10.4 (or just use AUSpeechSynthesis, for which we can use kSpeechVolumeProperty)
*
But even if we do this, there's no sound with hog mode enabled. WTF.
*
Hog mode (may?) take a while to set up. We (may?) need to preload it.
*
Ideally, we could quickly reduce volume to 0 before setting hog mode and put it back afterward.
*
Looks like this will not work. See here: can't redirect QuickTime/NSSpeech audio...or can we?
*
However: "NewMovieFromProperties also supports an audio context (kQTContextPropertyID_AudioContext). This allows you to specify an audio output device, set up a channel configuration, assign particular sound tracks to particular channels, and generally make use of the features of Core Audio, bypassing the limitations of the old Sound Manager. If no audio context is specified, the default output device and channel configuration are used."
*
If we're going to be doing this, need to factor more between the alert and the preview movie view. Perhaps allow PSMovieAlertController to handle previews too.
>
Reference counting a given output device should work fine.
*
Need to consider speech (and beep?) as well: don't want to change volume during speech.
*
Maybe volume should be a property of the alarm (or the alert stack) rather than an individual alert.
*
So, we need: (a) multi-alert volume handling; (b) an alarm stack to prevent audio alerts from overlapping.
*
Don't forget that you could change the default audio device while Pester is playing.
*
Investigate MTCoreAudio? Yes, somewhat useful for sample code, but overkill.
*
But also new HAL APIs: developer.apple.com—tn2223.html
*
Make speech through selected device optional? (May not want it to go to everyone.)
*
We can move the calendar window by dragging on the calendar itself. Should not be possible (was it always?)
*
Intercept -/+/= (except where part of localized strings) and use it to change date/time

Seems that message history isn't aging properly

Don't autohide Pester when brought to the front if there are other outstanding undismissed alarms

Remember default alarm time/interval, like hiptop Pester
*
Also: save the relative date (i.e., "next Thursday"); will have to do it along with the locale
*
When adding/resuming a time-based alarm, first try the saved date, then try the saved relative date, then try the next occurrence of the time (today or tomorrow)
V

Better, remember alarm time/interval/alerts with combo box contents
I would have two suggestions: The first would be to store the timing and other settings along with the timer’s title and fill those parts out as well. I could imagine this working well without introducing new UI and like the simplicity of such an approach. But I also see the danger of it being unexpected/confusing. The other would be having a menu. I could imagine either a favourites menu there or a history menu, not really sure which one gives the better tradeoffs (control vs needing an editor window).
One possibility I thought of was having some kind of "lock" or "link" control which would keep the settings associated with the name and prevent editing.  A history option for the selected alerts would make sense too.
Another detail that irks me (even though I can understand how the behaviour is perfectly logical in itself) is how Pester reliably remembers the last snooze interval I used. That’s a good thing in itself. However, it does make me think »stupid computer« when I am offered a 10 minute snooze after a 90 second timer. Again, not a real problem as it doesn’t really make sense to snooze after the 90 second timer anyway, but perhaps an interesting detail to share.
It'd be perfectly reasonable and non-confusing, I think, to save a snooze interval per timer, along with the alerts described above.  Will add it to the list.
*
UI cleanup: the creation window is too cluttered. Also, maybe use some shading?
*
Dispay time remaining for every alarm, not just the next one (list? HUD? widget?)
*
Save alert info even if the alert is disabled
*
Can't undo deletion of an expired alarm (by design?)
*
Allow drag and drop of .ics, import and export of alarms
