The latest xcode does on-the-fly static/error checking and the now de rigueur completion stuff -- and the first thing I do is turn it all off. Programming is creative writing, and I want a quiet place where I can think with out the system popping in and pulling me out of flow. Certainly time-based visualization has uses in certain problem domains, but it is important this circus of capabilities be able to be put into the background and come only when called. Perhaps this is just an implementation detail. Of course, I've been programming professionally for 30 years, so I am an ossified old fart. GET OFF MY LAWN!
