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.

  • The end of Last Resort was suitably anti-climactic. 20:06
  • Watching Arrow, Ben Browder got fat. 20:20
  • 343 Industries is probably the first studio to get episodic content right. Big pack with game, then free packs after launch. You guys rock! 21:51
  • Only just realised I’ve passed 30,000 points on Xbox Live as well! 21:54
  • The new A List Apart design just looks like a lack of design. I get this minimalist thing, but where's the structure? 22:05
  • Half Life 1 has been released for OS X and Linux. Only 15 years late, but still probably the best game ever. 22:19
  • Off to see Movie 43, the badder the better. 22:37
  • Sometimes, things are just too simple in OS X /cc @leonbarrett 09:42
  • The River looks to be about as scary as Paranormal Activity, which is to say: not very. 12:59
  • @4ndyR not working late? :p 15:13
  • It really annoys me when people don't use the proper reply mechanisms in Twitter now. Conversations are just destroyed. 16:20

  • @deplorableword launchd + basic script at the moment. Want to turn it into an obj-c menubar app eventually. 12:48
  • Ah dammit, Plex adds a show to recently watched even if you're still watching it. 12:49
  • @deplorableword was looking at PyObjC (same thing effectively) but Xcode doesn't natively include them anymore. Gonna look at it though. 12:50
  • @deplorableword actually MacRuby looks much nicer. 12:51
  • RT @snookca: Amazon launched Simple Email Service (SES) http://aws.amazon.com/ses/ I wonder what CampaignMonitor or MailChimp think of this. 12:57
  • @deplorableword that was the biggest problem with PyObjC, it was only a small team who had to keep up with changes to Cocoa. 13:17
  • Should probably learn Ruby before trying to view Cocoa to Ruby comparisons. 13:21
  • @deplorableword interactive mode should make it ignore correctly? 13:24

  • I just watched The Italian Job on #Plexapp 16:14
  • Original gravity; who the hell thought up that for measuring booze? 17:31
  • Hate it when the price on a website changes in between going from one device to another. 17:53
  • Reading news articles and seeing people comment No Russian makes me frown at those idiots who then go on to defend the game. 18:13
  • I just watched The Da Vinci Code on #Plexapp 19:48
  • I'd like to point out re: #plexapp I'm not the only one watching it. 19:49

  • Getting paid to use Facebook #win 14:15
  • @mikemike11 cool. Are you all right to drive then @dacanning? Do you even know where my office is? 14:40
  • Screwed up character encoding on a database. Sigh, this is going to take a while. 14:47
  • @dacanning 16 Graham St, just follow Newhall St, as it turns the corner it becomes Graham. We're opposite the temple. 14:54
  • Always feels weird when I have to set-up PHPMyAdmin myself, so used to it being ever ready on new servers. 15:07
  • Would like to try making a Facebook application but will have to wait until they sort out their own site. Bugger. 15:49
  • First Facebook app finished in about 5 minutes, nice and simple playing with data. 17:06
  • Stupid cinema website! Heading to Nando's to kill time. 17:54
  • Just spent an hour playing Trivial Pusuit with @mikemike11 and @dacanning. Sad or what. 20:19

  • Off to see Underworld 3 in a while, still got Valkyrie and 7 Pounds to watch as well. 17:32
