Most people in the uk got their panther discs and week and a half after the release date, even though apple said they'd be delivered the night of the release...i'm predicting around the end of next week for most deliveries.pulsewidth947 said:I'm guessing we'll have to make our own then.
Shouldnt be too bad. I'm definately going to look into it as soon as my Tiger arrives. I was reading up on how widgets are made and its easy stuff. The hard part is coming up with a useful widget, rather than a gimmiky one. Conversion from US widgets to UK shouldnt be too hard providing there is a relevant UK resource (i.e. Amazon.com/.co.uk)
Jaffa - i notice your 40 mins drive from me - you got your Tiger disc yet?
I know apple quoted 29th April for me, but I'm envious of the Americans who've already got theirs!
It's sort of correct to be in US English The local (as per computer specs at least) is EN and this is US english. It would not be so bad is OSX had proper EN_gb (which I believe is the local for UK English) support.crap freakboy said:Cleethorpes...hee...sorry made me smile, memories of a bleak summer childhood holiday.
Back on topic, the dictionary being US English is just plain wrong...its ENGLISH. I'm stopping there before I start ranting about the cancereous US culture.
Yeah, en_GB is proper English, and OS X support for it is very small. RealPlayer is the only app I've seen that supports it.robbieduncan said:It would not be so bad is OSX had proper EN_gb (which I believe is the local for UK English) support.
No such luck I'm afraid!pulsewidth947 said:Jaffa - i notice your 40 mins drive from me - you got your Tiger disc yet?
I did read somewhere that someone ordering Tiger over the phone in the UK was told that unlike the US, there is no guarantee of delivery on 29th here. And it was more likely that they wouldn't ship until 28th/29th. So yes, next week may be more likely particularly with the bank holiday in the middle.Sky Blue said:Most people in the uk got their panther discs and week and a half after the release date, even though apple said they'd be delivered the night of the release...i'm predicting around the end of next week for most deliveries.
i dont see why this would be the case....doesnt every country have a yellow pages. The tracker might be true but that doesnt make it impossible not to make a widget that can do that...daijones said:As well as Yellow Pages finding US numbers only, I believe the parcel tracking widget only tracks US parcels
I'm in goole - about fourty mins from each of you guys - no tiger yet - though apple shipped it yesterday afternoon - so I'm off work looking for the welcome orange truck pulling up alongside my houseJaffa Cake said:No such luck I'm afraid!
Anyway, looking at Apple's site and what's been discussed here it looks like us non US-types won't do too badly from the default widgets, and worse case scenario we can go third party. Any Europeans lucky enough to get Tiger delivered early care to fill us in?
