Day 8 as a iPhone/Mac Developer

Today I started with a full hard drive on the Mac. Another employee was working on it over the weekend and filled it with his video files, so I got a lot of "disk full" errors. After removing 20 gigs worth of files, all was well again, but word trickled through the grapevine and I started getting all these phone calls and e-mails from team members, asking, "is your development Mac OK?" I swear, I thought I was in a scene of "Office Space".

I got all of my web service calls to work. I had some issues getting NSXMLDocument to parse the results, but then I found this ominous-sounding post. I'm not sure if it's true or not, but it motivated me to ditch using NSXMLDocument. I really didn't need it anyway - the results are pretty easy to parse.

I think at this point, I'm going to stop with the daily "iPhone/Mac developer" posts. I'm at the point where I got things working, and while I'm not a Mac/Xcode/Cocoa/Objective-C expert, I feel like I'm at the point where I'm functional enough to get the application done. I'll probably post some "closing thoughts" later.
