so i spent a few hours this morning adding a feature to XNJB so that i could export a list of music currently on my zen micro. now i can figure out which music i've deleted off my micro because it sucked too much, and update my laptop collection accordingly.

anyway, the main point is that it was my first time programming in objective-c using xcode. it's not something i'm looking forward to doing again. i don't particularly like the smalltalk-ish syntax of objective-c, and although xcode is nice in terms of features, i don't like the multiple code windows floating all over the place. i also don't like the way the code windows scroll - when you reach the bottom/top of the visible area, it'll scroll by half a page. sounds normal, but for some reason it confuses me in practice and i keep losing my cursor. it also took me a while to figure out how the GUI editor worked, although once i figured it out, using it was pretty painless.

if i do program specifically for the mac later on, it'll definitely be in java, using the java-cocoa bindings. unfortunately, since apple has deprecated these bindings in leopard onwards, that just restricts options even further. i guess i'll stick to non-platform-specific java :)
