Apple on App Store Review Guidelines: relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/09/10

To quote the Apple statement:

we are relaxing all restrictions on the development tools used to create iOS apps, as long as the resulting apps do not download any code. This should give developers the flexibility they want, while preserving the security we need.

Which seems to mean you can use both Mono (using MonoTouch) and Flex to develop your Apple iPhone and iPad apps.

Flusing the DNS cache

Posted by jpluimers on 2010/09/10

DNS is the fundament for resolving names to IP-adreesses.
Without it, no internet browsing or other connections to the outside world.

Like a lot of communication optimizations, caching improves the speed of DNS too (All programming is an exercise in caching -Terje Mathisen).

Sometimes, bad or unwanted DNS entries end up in your cache.
Those prohibit some of the communication.

Luckily, How to Flush DNS explains this for 3 platforms: Windows, Mac OSX and Linux:

  • Windows:
    ipconfig /flushdns
  • Mac OSX:
    10.5 and up: dscacheutil -flushcache
    pre 10.5: lookupd -flushcache
  • Linux:
    /etc/init.d/nscd restart

–jeroen – now happy he flushed an unwanted DNS entry from the cache
