Yesteryear

This page shows what I was doing around this time of year in years gone by. It works because I store a local copy of all tweets, runs, photos and other elements of my life that I track on this blog.

  • Strava would be useful if the times were so obviously not set by people in cars :/ 09:40
  • Bike can fit in car, huge success! 10:18
  • Annoyances in the last 24h: Google Fibre is 1 Gb *not* GB (8x difference), Berners-Lee invented the www *not* the Internet. That is all. 11:07
  • New cycling jersey. Getting brighter each time. 12:52
  • @jaspertandy yup, doesn’t offer enough over Garmin Connect to make me wanna switch. 13:12
  • Have doughnuts ready for tomorrow. It’s what I race for :P 13:15
  • @jaspertandy it’s basically a data site, good for reports etc but less so the social side of things. 13:17
  • @john383 is this the same foot pod that said you’d done the fun run half way round? /cc @leekemp @edmoore 13:34
  • @john383 @leekemp @edmoore need to take one of the Polars with you. Or trace the route on an OS map like I did. 13:43
  • You know what would be awesome? If swimming in the British Gas Great Swims took money off your British Gas bill. 13:45
  • @john383 would sell you mine but it’s now got bite marks in it :P 13:48
  • @john383 ah google maps takes an approximation so could have been longer. 15:04
  • Changing development strategy for an app I've been working on for a long while: done is better than best. Throwing stuff into it now. 17:31
  • The weather is currently clear. The temperature is 19 C, with humidity at 43% and wind coming from the west at 14 mph. 17:55
  • Pasta, stat! 19:22
  • I ran 4.13 km http://go.nike.com/5l6r2hm 08:01
  • I ran 6.11 km http://go.nike.com/gojedh 08:02
  • Didn't realise it but that last run was paused from Spaghetti to Erdington :/ 08:02
  • Copying 1.96Tb. Then another 840Gb after that. Then got to copy the whole lot again. 08:05
  • Knocked a USB drive while copying files in Lion, complete system lock-up. Not even Linux has this much trouble. 09:02
  • What?! Spotify uses the radio-versions for songs in my own library? Sure this didn't used to happen. 11:13
  • @simonhamp be careful, it can be a *lot* more expensive than just performing another query depending on what you're doing. 11:45
  • @simonhamp found it was good with simple stuff, but joins just nuked it as it does full table scans etc. 11:47
  • Brainstorming lunch FTW :) 13:40
  • So using Google Page Speed would make my site 23.6% *slower* than what I have at the moment. Erm, win? 14:04
  • Written a mini animation handling framework in JavaScript for this site, looking pretty cool now :) 15:12
  • Eating a bag of doritos on my desk. Feel like @russellhancox. 15:50
  • Looking forward to a quiet evening in for once this week. 17:04
  • Used Cornerstone for some SVN merges (shudder) and it handled them really well, blows Versions out the water. 17:11
  • @jaspertandy he's like a tardis! /cc @russellhancox 17:13
  • Replace compiling with deploying and you have a web geek: http://t.co/pjIaRVa 17:28
  • 50 lengths = 1,250m = a fish & chips for tea. 19:55
  • 800Gb transferred since 8 this morning. Only another 1.2Tb to go. 19:58
  • @Sarah_Treacy going for the Tapping look? :p 22:07
  • Considering how much I loved James Barrington's first book, can't say I enjoyed Payback. Felt far too forced and artificial. 22:28
  • RT @JasonPunyon: PR is just real world SEO. And just as sleazy. 00:26
  • Never letting @KateLanchester on my MBP again. Woke to find it unresponsive, no sound and loads of errors. 09:39
  • @dacanning Amazon, dirt cheap. 09:45
  • This is not a good morning. Might leave the house before I snap. 10:06
  • Never realised how much I missed that start up dong ;( 10:11
  • @jaspertandy you Internetz and your dirty minds :P 10:24
  • @Timmargh do I have to choose? 11:01
  • @jaspertandy why not all on one page rather than an awful lot of wasted space? 11:39
  • War was actually more enjoyable than I thought it would be, the film not the action. 13:56
  • Got OAuth management all working in this plugin, now to do the actual business-y stuff. 16:16
  • Using an iPhone in an iPod dock = a lot of crackling speakers every five minutes when it checks in. 16:40
  • The reason for my current need to refactor Twitter systems: http://countdowntooauth.com/ 17:02
  • @deplorableword ah FFS, just started hacking around with the default Twitter OAuth library to add multi_curl. Thanks for the heads up. 17:17
  • If you see weird tweets in my timeline don't worry, I'm just mucking around with the API :) 19:50
  • Array or Object, make up your damn mind API! 21:05
  • Watching Kick-Ass with the little sister, really need a new Mac Mini, it's struggling with HD now :( 21:37
  • If you throw an Exception, put a *frakking* error message in it! 22:17
  • This asynchronous Twitter library is... volatile to say the least. 22:28
  • @Andy383 run an import script 3 times, get 3 different values back. It makes no logical sense and the developer doesn't give a toss. 22:33
  • Must relax, must relax. Do not WHOIS the developers domain and hunt them down. Must relax. 22:57
  • Accidentally made a couple hundred requests to Twitter = rate limit hit = no more work for 45 minutes. FFFFUUU 23:14
  • Swimming followed by Apple store + meeting @Rice tomorrow, need a break now. Badly. 23:21
  • @Andy383 in the afternoon tomorrow. No sound, restart no help, shows no audio devices. Not what I needed today. 23:30
  • I'm calling it an early night before anything else goes tits up today. 23:33
  • Just remembered loads of little bits of work I'm supposed to have done, bloomin' Uni. 07:54
  • Hate having nothing to do in the morning, might just set off for work now. 08:11
  • Home to the office in 15 minutes, gotta love leaving early. 08:35
  • @dacanning that's just plain lazy. Up to much today? 12:56
  • Making a very late lunch run. 14:07
  • An idea I had ages ago for a new version of HybridLogic has just come back in full force. Now to actually align the stuff. 15:41
  • Made a fresh design, not sure how long it'll last though. Heading home now. 17:02
  • Anyone up to anything tonight? #bored 17:26
  • @mikemike11 nah, too late. Cinema tomorrow? 19:38
  • Watching Midnight Meat Train, pretty gruesome so far but fun nonetheless. And tweaking site design. 20:08
  • Spoke too soon, think I'm gonna hurl. 20:11
  • Midnight Meat Train was bloody weird at the end but definately watchable, if you're not squemish. 21:08
  • @mikemike11 The Taking of Pelham 123, 1830 or 2100? 21:37
  • @mikemike11 he won't mind. I'll meet you there about 1820, will be driving from work so can give you a lift home. 21:59
  • Tomorrow begins the tweaking phase for this new design, then moving on to other pages before even touching HTML. 22:00
  • @KateLanchester has just started cooking biscuits. Can you say dysfunctional family? 22:12
  • @leksibaby_x no I've been eating properly. @KateLanchester on the other hand... 22:45
  • enjoying my holiday, off to see Dark Knight later. 08:46
  • going sailing, too hot for cinema. 09:50
  • wrapping up a brilliant day out. Great fun out on the lake, barbecue rained off but fun nonetheless. More tomorrow! 22:05
  • up and ready for the day ahead, still more tasks to do, never ending I tell you. 08:53
  • nearly completed Chaser and hopefully off to see Transformers later. 14:53
  • mates round, off for McDs. Didn't like transformers that much, the direction didn't work for me but the effects rocked. 21:46
