As it hits -2°c here in Paris, it got pretty hot in Australia, in some places 48.5°c, as well as raging bushfires that can be seen from the International Space Station.It has been so hot, that the Australian Metrological department has to add an extra color to their heat chart.
It reached 1° Celsius today in Paris, I had to wear gloves and a tshirt for my run. Damn it was cold. The area I usually go running just next to the Seine river is still flooded, though this is a season event. Time for a holiday I think, somewhere warm, maybe Seychelles:
The good news is I did finish my Paris Metro HD app for the iPad and people heading to Paris. I uploaded it to the store this morning, and it will be free. I think I will add in the route finder part in the next version, but you may have to pay for it.
Also I just learnt to type the degree symbol ° is option+shift+8.
So what does this mean? For electricity prices, they get very expensive. From the Australian Energy Market Operator, the governing body of Energy in Australia, you can see the following table of spot Prices ($/MWh). This is what a heatwave does to prices.
You can make four icons (as of today) for your app and they can all have a different look – not necessarily based on the 512×512 image.
- corner radius for the 512×512 icon = 80 (iTunesArtwork)
- corner radius for the 114×114 icon = 18 (iPhone/iPod touch (Retina))
- corner radius for the 72×72 icon = 11 (iPad)
- corner radius for the 57×57 icon = 9 (iPhone/iPod touch)
If you do create a set of custom icons, you can set the
UIPrerenderedIcon option to true in your info.plist file and it will not do any of the gloss or corner rounding for you but it will place a black background under it with these corner radii so if the corner radius on any of the icons is greater then it will show black around the edges/corners.
