  • @metaltoast it says you can mark it anyway you want as long as it's clear in the article? 13:03
  • @metaltoast you just can't write a stupid statement that may make your choice ambiguous. 13:03
  • @LOVEFiLMLucy one for films, one for games. Means I can say I only want one game at home at a time. 13:04
  • @metaltoast signing = non-secret = what do they expect. comment = allowed but may be rejected. If someone's an idiot they deserve rejection. 13:38
  • Listening to the Halo Wars soundtrack, didn't realise one had been released for it. 14:36
  • The netbook is dead, long live the iPad. (Not really true) http://www.readwriteweb.com/archives/ipad_killing_netbooks_already.php 16:15

  • VisibleTweets.com + HDTV = awesome status board. http://gdzl.la/7Z51Kk 17:49

  • @jacobdutton don't look up! 17:52
  • Off to the polling station, hope it doesn't rain. 18:39
  • Got twenty minutes into the first episode of Luther before switching over. British television just can't compete with American shows. Shame. 20:17
  • Spotify has royally screwed up my iTunes library. iPod says it kind find loads of files, Plex gives file read errors. Grrr. 20:53
  • @sdmix yep. Wish it just indexed it, didn't realise by allowing it to "correct tags" it would screw with everything under the sun. 21:58
  • @sdmix woah, from bad to worse. No backups anywhere? 22:03
  • I can feel the country slipping away already. Off to bed now. Night all. #ge2010 22:06
  • @samroberts12 ain't that the truth. 22:38
  • Started reading Nikki Heat, always funny reading fiction based within fiction. 22:39
  • Up, packed and on train within 20 minutes, record. 09:56
  • Coursework nearly finished, one piece at least. Town then home. 13:10
  • Picked up some stuff in town, student discount FTW. Heading home now, shattered. 14:23
  • @dacanning walking, tut tut. You either run or stop. 14:25
  • Gmail is really taking it's time uploading attachments lately; it either works quickly or takes ages. 15:09
  • For some reason 24 has got less and less interesting as this day has dragged on, only 3 more episodes to go. Fringe and Castle next. 16:09
  • Damn Fringe is awesome, that's one show I'm going to miss when it finishes. Off for petrol for the mower now. 17:14
  • @russellhancox they did say it was a top priority (and currently dedicated to one developer). 18:11
  • My MacBook Pro is at 105C encoding a video and yet the fans remain at their normal 2000 RPM, WTF?! 18:59
  • @russellhancox iStat Pro hasn't lead me wrong so far, and I can't hear them spinning hard. 19:47
  • @russellhancox I could quite easily boil an egg on the section between keyboard and screen. Done now though. 19:53
  • Might start putting some TV episodes on the iPhone so I can watch them while commuting. 22:31
  • If I share a folder on Mac I can't access it from other Macs, if I don't share it no-one can access it from Windows. 22:50
  • Need new iPhone apps, recommendations anyone? Games, utilities, just general stupid apps for no apparent reason other than to annoy? 22:56
  • Please spot Fry and Lela: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dachande663/3508056345/ 23:14
  • Damnit, iPhone can't play videos in their current format, too tired to start converting them now. Night all. 23:30
  • @Timmargh http://bit.ly/ovun via @Lovefilm 23:34
  • @Timmargh not sure, but it seems unlikely after poring over the image, seems odd that Bender, Farnsworth and Hubert would be but not them. 23:45
  • And @KateLanchester is going to have a great surprise in the morning, I'm just warning her not to wake me up, I get grumpy is all. 23:46
  • @KateLanchester nothing, nothing... 23:57
  • try as I might, I just can't seem to get a good nights sleep. 07:11
  • must work. Resist. temptation. to watch. BSG. *fail* 09:42
  • @Timmargh ah, touché. 10:58
  • played some Call of Duty in between Uni and design work. 15:35
  • @russhancox nope, was just playing against a friend who doesn't have GTA yet. Keep on mixing up buttons though. 15:37
  • @strawpoll monkey, I don't like fish, even mammalian ones. And monkey's have opposable thumbs. 17:31
  • I hate GTA. Realtime seems to follow game time, it just flows by. 19:15
  • I have done sod all Java work this bank holiday but I couldn't care less. Off to bed now, night all. 21:56
