  • Feeling a tad delicate this morning :( 08:02
  • RT @zacharyvoase: It seems like the more I look, the more I find examples of confirmation bias. 08:02
  • It’s funny when you see people lengthen their stride to run faster/go uphill. 08:34
  • DNS providers servers under a DDOS attack. Cue frantic searches. 09:46
  • Love the way @dacanning doesn't even react to my oddball texts now :P 12:33
  • RT @mixedreality: Sweet Kinect Hack video that turns your body into a music mixer http://t.co/rcJfLrPA 16:47
  • Looking forward to jumping in the pool later. 17:32
  • Feel like that bit in Jarhead: hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! 18:28
  • Pool was lovely and cool. Packed, but cool. 19:46
  • Broke out the sports technicals meet casual tees, super cool :) 21:04
  • This is why I love reading Matthew Reilly, two days in and I’ve read 230 of the 520 pages. 22:37
  • Ended up in Walkabout in need of H2O. 01:25
  • Big Bite. That is all. 01:53
  • Watching Rio while @mikemike11 plays with an unconscious @dacanning. 02:38
  • *Never* fall asleep at a mates house. 03:11
  • Awesome night culminating in @dacanning chasing @mikemike11 down the road with pen across his face. Missed these days :) 04:17
  • Woken by the parents worryingly asking where the car was. Took me a moment to remember :/ 10:12
  • @LOVEFiLM how did you know?! 10:40
  • Torchwood episode three to watch later :) /cc @deplorableword 10:41
  • Okay, I want to play Anniversary edition now :) http://j.mp/oiaM6c 11:13
  • May wake up in Lichfield. 12:50
  • @john383 some people have no issues, others lots. Not sure about soundflower but sounds right. I'm holding off. 13:20
  • Main reasoning of thought with Lion upgrade atm; if it ain't broke, don't fix it. 13:31
  • Okay, upgrading to Lion, you lot win. 13:50
  • @jaspertandy never used spaces on Mac which is weird considering I've used them on every other OS. 13:56
  • Backing work up; every line of code I've written doesn't even equal the size of one video :/ 14:39
  • My WD Passport contains images of Windows XP & 7, two MacBook Pros (Leopard & SL) and now the Lion installer. Also, Ubuntu + Gentoo. 15:10
  • I want to use the new scrolling direction in Lion, but it just renders it incompatible with every other OS. 16:07
  • Lion has knackered the performance of my MBP :( 16:29
  • I *physically* cannot do some of these mouse gestures now. 16:33
  • @jaspertandy wouldn't mind so much except they're all swipe up. Down is a much easier motion on a trackpad. 16:37
  • @jaspertandy definitely, three fingers is okay, fours pushing it. But asking for the thumb, pfhh. 16:40
  • Using Safari, but only until Chrome updates. Still not using Mail, UI backstop next to Sparrow. 16:49
  • Sorry for the Lion tweets all as well. 16:49
  • Gnome! That's what the new button style reminds me of! 16:54
  • Swipe up you get Mission Control, up again it goes away. Down you get app expose, down again it doesn't go away. Grrr. 17:12
  • Oh, and I like all the little window opening animations. (Sorry @jaspertandy) 17:13
  • @joelgascoigne Preferences > Profiles > Window > Style = Top of Screen. Then Keys > Hotkey to that Profile. 19:14
  • They couldn't make it three episodes into Torchwood without bringing back the old Barrowman? :( 19:53
  • Do you know what Halo anniversary shows? Ten years of graphical improvements don't mean squat compared to gameplay. 21:05
  • Looking to get an SSD for my MBP; recommendations people: make, model & store? 21:54
  • Just bought my sixth year of Flickr Pro, not sure why though anymore :/ 22:21
  • @PhunkyVenom hah, I was thinking more Modern Warfare or LA Noire. 22:45
  • @jaspertandy moving to anywhere else? Have too much metadata to lose at the moment. 22:47
  • Sony's CAPTCHA. View source. Face palm. http://t.co/qeHffUI 22:54
  • @leonbarrett put it like this, the images include very informative attributes. 23:17

  • Can't wait for this! http://mashable.com/2010/07/22/tron-legacy-movie/ 02:06
  • Honestly torn over the WordPress theme GPL snafu, open source is good, but a company has to protect it's assets in some sense. 02:11
  • First stat section done, heading to bed :) http://dribbble.com/shots/37417-Cinema-Visits 02:20
  • @russellhancox exactly. Most worrying fact to me was use of API is equivalent to copy/pasting GPL code. Dangerous precedent. 09:39
  • Ah, that was a nice episode of Futurama. #S06E06 10:23
  • Might start tracking more people on Xbox, just because I can. Sorry API limits. 14:07

  • Need data! 15:25
  • Lol, looking at table of when I go cinema. Most hours 1 or 2 visits over 18 months. Friday @ 11pm, 24. 16:23
  • Playing around with Raphaël to make some infographics for hybridlogic, fun times. 16:39
  • @aajhiggs you need to .bind() to elements that are pulled in via AJAX. 16:53
  • Raphaël is pretty damn cool, so quick to get stuff up. http://dribbble.com/shots/37565-Rapha-l-Cinema 17:48
  • My Top 3 Weekly #lastfm artists: Nomy (51), Infant Sorrow (27) and Hans Zimmer (21) http://bit.ly/bQMhSL 18:01

  • I think I've found a use for Quicksand, now to see if it actually works :) http://razorjack.net/quicksand/ 19:07
  • Finally got this bit of JS working, stupid DOM. 20:10
  • Want to go and see Splice but don't think anyone's free :( 20:44
  • Dammit, using hoverIntent and setting the title attribute don't play nice together. 20:54
  • In other news, rescuing @Andy383 from his boredom to see Splice. Slowly desensitising him to horror films :) 20:54
  • 5p baguette makes a great breakfast/lunch. Just getting ready for work, when I get home we'll have new carpet and car! 07:59
  • It's not even 12 and I'm getting hungry. 11:37
  • Mega rain outside, so glad I brought lunch in today. 12:31
  • http://hey-it.com/download.html 13:34
  • Google Engineers + a sense of humour = http://bit.ly/WRORk 13:36
  • Machine tags + APIs = next version of my site. Before the current one has even been released. I know @Andy383'll be happy, not. 13:58
  • @Andy383 50/50 split? 14:51
  • Just finished updating a plugin across two dozen sites, now to find the inevitable bugs (mostly from the clients and sloppy HTML). 15:41
  • @KateLanchester you're never going to get to drive it though! 16:50
  • Having for @Rice's bday with @dacanning, @mikemike11 and @robborocks 19:37
  • Add curry to previous tweet, not eating @Rice. 19:37
  • Very nice curry but can't remember the name of the place, just above the Bank of Cyprus in Sutton Coldfield. 21:28
  • Bro is getting up early tomorrow just so he can drive the car, means another lift from the always prompt @john383 Taxi Service. If he will. 22:20
  • @sukhidehal sister has just started watching that, weird. And yeah, funny but only if you appreciate that style of humour. 22:32
  • @john383 You talkin' to me? Well I'm the only one here. 22:47
  • woke up to a yellow light on my Time Capsule, can't be bothered fixing it now. 06:29
  • at the office, only problem is no one else is here. 07:46

  • notes made on minutes of notes made during meeting. 09:49
  • @Rice is that overall? 10:37
  • It's official, I hate XML. It is the most stupidly verbose language ever. 10:54
  • @Si I use Transmission because it's just so simple, but I know a few who use XTorrent for its extra features. 11:28
  • right, IM chat over, time for lunch. 11:42
  • got XML-RPC up and working, now to actually tweak it so everything I need is passed over. 13:23

  • more WordPress error messages: "Cheatin' uh?" 16:05
  • @Timmargh absolutely loving it, already one of my favourite Zimmer albums. 16:19
  • delved deeper into the heart of WordPress than any man should, must go home now and undo the damage caused. 16:28
