  • Tram time. 08:49
  • @dacanning sitting looking at the great swim start line. 09:37

  • Is Snow Leopard a minimum requirement for @plexapp now? /cc @leafmuncher 08:21
  • The Plex Queue stuff is amazing! Sent a YouTube video to my iPhone in seconds! 08:41
  • Brilliant, iPhone now doesn't show up in iPhoto or Image Capture. 09:06
  • @domster plug it in, iPhoto opens (as normal), but no devices listed. Tried rebooting phone etc but nothing yet. 09:13
  • @domster still running 8 ('09). There's nothing in the newer versions to make me buy it. 09:15
  • I ran 3.64 km http://t.co/2p4eYBTj 09:19
  • I ran 3.51 km http://t.co/1WPs1MzC 09:20
  • @watchinharrison yeah, used my forum account. Having problems? 09:31
  • @leonbarrett the phone itself has indexed all images and there's only about 10 new ones since last import. 09:42
  • @leonbarrett iPhoto 8 doesn't have photostream and I'm not upgrading just for that. 09:46
  • @deplorableword nope, they'll only support latest two releases of OS X, so it's Snow Leopard or higher now. 10:58
  • @deplorableword does this mean you'll have to violate your only inviolate law? 11:02
  • @David___Lewis what's going on?! 11:11
  • @deplorableword Linux even. 11:13
  • Don't know whether to head to town or not today to get some work done. Decisions. 11:17
  • @russellhancox wwwwwwhat?! 11:17
  • Making fruit salad and watching Harry Potter 7.2 14:48
  • @watchinharrison tis awesome! 17:28
  • @watchinharrison not sharing libraries etc until they've nailed the permissions. Don't like the current open-to-all model :/ 17:31
  • @jcuk ideally would like the Apple Find Friends model e.g. share this movie with this person for the next 24 hours. Don't like leaving open. 17:36
  • @jcuk cheers, would be grateful if you did! Don't like the thought of everyone in the office streaming my stuff (ISP limits and all). 17:37
  • Head is literally spinning and I'm dicking around with spl autoloaders. Not feeling my best. 17:46
  • RT @jaimeohm: Coders are special. "We are expected to know how to do things we've never done before and estimate how long they will take ... 18:07
  • Good to see almost all of my twitter followers/workmates are rocking @plexapp :D 18:08
  • Autoloading FTW. Now to puke. 19:07
  • Man I love Super 8. 20:02
  • @watchinharrison yep. Seems to be a big divide of people who just don't like it all, but the nostalgia effect always gets me :) 20:05
  • Watching the first episode of Harsh Realm. I remember when PC Format included it as a special preview 10 years ago :/ 00:01
  • Trying to enjoy a lie-in. Trying and failing. 09:02
  • Off to @urbancoffeeco in a minute to meet @Andy383 for a day of dev'ing. 10:11

  • RT @metaltoast: Love Russell Howard's tagline for the Conservatives: 'putting the "n" into cuts' 11:07
  • Won some wine in the @urbancoffeeco Halloween raffle :D 11:23
  • For some reason, every time in this collection is reporting it's size as 2Gb exact. Don't know what's happening :/ 11:36
  • Ergh, stupid me, max size for a 32 bit signed integer. Bugger. 11:40
  • @deplorableword exporter for Plex. Someone sent in a bug report saying all their HD films were showing up as 2Gb. Running older OS :/ 11:55
  • Tempted to use the ORM methods in Kohana but know some queries will need raw SQL anyway :/ 12:12
  • @jaspertandy I'm still tempted to use MongoDB but know that'd turn out to be even more of a pain. 12:27
  • The best thing about Kohana v2 was it's documentation. V3 has barely any and they're all contradictory :( 12:46
  • First query and I'm already not using the ORM. Sod it. 13:35
  • @rasga it always seem to be find if you're just making a blog but any real world app invariably needs some obtuse logic ultimately. 13:36
  • @Andy383 that's what she said. 13:59
  • Trying to think up the best of structuring this app. Using class names to denote directory structure really isn't conducive to proper naming 14:19
  • Two cops have just used their handcuffs to chain their bikes to a lamppost. 14:28
  • Does anyone have a copy of the ANEW database kicking around before I start grep'ing this PDF? 15:34
  • I didn't think I'd ever say this but, I think I'm going to have to not use a framework for this. Mainly because I'm building a framework. 16:12
  • Switched coursework, gonna try and get as much done as possible today :/ 16:34
  • Had a nice pub meal with @Andy383. Run and cinema later. 18:12
  • Amazed this wine isn't broken. Shame I don't drink alcohol. Or caffeine for that matter. 18:45
  • Angry Birds plushies? Need! 18:49
  • 3.8 miles, 31 minutes. Funny passing all the trick & treaters. 20:08
  • Just bought 3 Angry Birds (red, blue & yellow). Because they're *awesome*! 20:30
  • Would love to add this idea to an app but just really don't have the time to do it :( V2 maybe. 21:05
  • Waiting for Saw 3D to start with @mikemike11. Poor @dacanning working late :P 23:22
  • Seriously can't believe it's Friday already, so much to get done today but it has to be finished. 07:34
  • In the office and working away. 08:17
  • @robborocks probably not me, might have one night in this week. 08:33
  • Can haz Wave! Will let others know when I have invites. 08:48

  • Getting __PHP_Incomplete_Class errors on some SagePay transactions but not others, no idea what's causing it! 11:51
  • Does anyone know how to cast an object to a class in PHP? The only way seems to be hacky serialize/change/unserialize trickery. 12:31
  • Finished one project phase, fixed major bug on another and now getting dinner. 13:05
  • There are 60x more farmers on FarmVille than in the US, insane! http://bit.ly/4u2tyQ 13:49

  • FInally have Internet back after a weird break, stupid cables coming lose in the rack. 16:13

  • @dacanning really not sure. 17:33
  • Really want to go for a run but feel absolutely knackered. Seems I've beaten @sukhidehal in a 5K challenge by default as well! 18:29

  • first driving lesson was awesome, didn't stall once. 12:18
