  • My "little" jog took a detour when I ended up in New Oscott estate. 9.75 km later and back home :) 19:49
  • @watchinharrison haven't used the website in ages, utter tripe. Garmin Connect has a much better UI for actually *doing* stuff. 22:33
  • Love the way Google is promoting how to get revenue from apps when most Android users won't spend a penny. http://t.co/cnZ0ck9 10:03
  • Too many deliveries this morning, impossible to get anything done. 10:40
  • @mrsteveheyes did not realise clicking on either of those links automatically votes for you. Big UX fail. 10:53
  • @mrsteveheyes MAMP Pro FTW, makes setting up virtualhosts much easier than editing files :) 10:55
  • @mrsteveheyes definitely, makes changing Apache/PHP/MySQL/VHosts drop dead simple. Only wish updates were easier. 11:01
  • Watching Game of Thrones. Here's one that always annoys me; how much did medieval swords weigh? Don't google it, guess. 12:03
  • @AlexNewbury replicas don't count, but that's actually pretty close. 12:05
  • @watchinharrison waaaaay over. 12:05
  • @AlexNewbury woah awesome. 12:08
  • @watchinharrison ~5kg. Always wondered how they could wield such a huge sword so asked a teacher while back. Kills the mysticism :P 12:11
  • @AlexNewbury people still use Opera to browse the web? What next, IE5.5? 17:21
  • Done a bit of revision and played a lot of Prey today. If only exams gave you gamerpoints. 19:19
  • Prey has crashed twice at the final boss battle. Enough. 20:07
  • It is 9pm. I demand my evening back! 20:58

  • Feel awful, so tired and now have a killer migraine to boot. 10:00
  • Houston we have lift off; PHP-FPM is now listening to Nginx. Will teach me to trust a default conf file buried away. 11:30
  • @noscope want! How get? 11:31
  • @noscope hmm, I can pin it and it works, but it's lost when I close the current window. 11:34
  • Loving Nginx, makes Apache feel so obsolete. 12:15
  • 6 creme eggs for 67p? Don't mind if I do. 12:55
  • Need to catch up some serious z's tonight :( 13:16
  • Struggling to finish Aliens vs Predator; not because it's hard, it's just so mind-numbingly boring. 15:14
  • @arjaneising dang, you're just ahead of me. Only seen 39, behind schedule :( 17:29
  • Finally passed 18,000 points on Xbox Live, now just waiting for @Andy383 on Reach. 18:18

  • @arjaneising heh, not quite as bad as seeing Avatar 5 times then :P 18:46
  • Freshly cut lawn. #twitpicgarden http://gdzl.la/82AYT1 19:19
  • The fact that I'm still waiting for Apache Bench to finish with Dreamhost while reviewing Linode's stats should tell you everything. 19:38
  • For anyone who's interested in servers and geek stats: http://www.flickr.com/photos/dachande663/4612712472/ 19:45
  • @russellhancox nothing yet, there's a comparability table to help transition too. Only trouble is setting up PHP-FPM. 21:26
  • @russellhancox Heroes yes, but FlashForward has actually redeemed itself since coming back. 21:27
  • Grr stupid shin, got raised bumps all down it and no idea what's causing them. 21:35
  • ran 3.75 mi on 16/5/2010 at 8:15 PM with a pace of 8'36"/mi http://go.nike.com/6pvm4dc 21:38
  • @mikemike11 seriously? Don't you have Uni work yourself to be looking at rather than frog porn :P 21:52
  • @mikemike11 I've had 'em before but they normally go away if I take it easy for a few weeks. More that I don't know what's causing them. 21:53
  • @_Vaughany seriously, you're scared of frogs? Frogs?! 21:56
  • @jaspertandy sure, I'll whack 'em online tomorrow for ya. 22:32
  • Renaming Family Guy episodes so they match up with TheTVDB.com but given up after 3 seasons. 00:12
  • A PHP blog showing insecure scripts (no DB sanitization) is no PHP blog at all. 00:14
  • RE previous tweet: Or the norm for PHP developers unfortunately. 00:14
  • Finally up and got to do some shopping today. 10:47
  • @Rice you have to celebrate afterwards! Or at least rub it in for @dacanning. 11:12
  • @dacanning @Rice I'm up for anything! More zombies? 12:54
  • Finished renaming all of my Family Guy episodes so they now show up correctly in Plex. 14:12
  • Haven't found a single track I like on Eminem's new album yet. 15:10

  • 115 episodes of Family Guy correctly ordered, now 88 episodes of Futurama to do. #fb 16:46

  • Calculating vector reflections for a Project Euler problem. On a Saturday night. 19:19

  • @Andy383 gave up with that after sister got 176. Have fun! 21:31
  • Finland are about the only country I could consider and that's mainly because it sounds like a dance track @dacanning would play in his car. 22:07
  • My Lovefilm recommendations are now starting to get more useful. 23:12
  • up after being awakened by a whole series of phone calls this morning. Don't these people ever sleep?! 07:54

  • @Timmargh thanks, got cut up by some muppet on a roundabout, but still had fun. Stalled again. Damn petrol. 10:31
  • despite all my troubles with Python, I'd still take Django over any PHP framework I've used. 11:35
  • @Rice do not be surprised if lightning hits your house again for such heresy lol. 13:03
  • installed docutils on Dreamhost in 30 seconds, now I have automagically documented models in Django. 13:19
  • I know gmail notifier checks every 2 minutes, but it's just not often enough for me. 13:27
  • shame Django can't modify existing DB tables, not that it causes much trouble in an empty installation. 14:18
  • lost 30 minutes in Python because I forgot to swap names of objects. Well Post and Photo are pretty similar. 15:35
  • managed to get my tumblelog system working in Django, had to play around with the save and delete methods on other models though. 15:52
  • @russhancox like http://hybridlogic.co.uk/doing/ 16:05
  • @russhancox cron to pull it in, parse it and store the results, then PHP at runtime to grab local files and build the result. 16:12
  • @russhancox and I haven't updated it in a loooong time (hence the discrepancies in music, twitter etc). 16:12
  • @russhancox I'm planning on something like tumblr, but only as a part of the overall design. Too many things to do! 16:20
  • hmm, anyone know a good Xbox Live scraper to generate RSS feeds? 16:22
  • added my tumblelog to my Django project homepage, now to go up the road and get a fish and chips. 17:52
  • trying to decide how to structure URLs, Django has a lovely feature that can totally uncouple URLs from models. 18:58
  • 9 o'clock, time to stop work and watch TV 19:59
  • mapped out URI structures while watching NCIS. And spent 10 minutes talking with Dad; barefoot on coooold ground. 20:38
  • wireframing with pen and paper now I'm comfortable with Django. So much stuff to fit on homepage. Time for lateral thinking. 21:08
  • now I'm getting more used to Django I'm adding models left, right and centre. Gonna have some fun this weekend. 22:16
  • off to watch the last 10 minutes of Jonathan Ross and then Timecop. Night all. 22:25
