  • They went down well, more to make later. 16:01
  • I’d download Spartan Ops just for the cutscenes, so awesome! 21:03
  • @watchinharrison carrying pails of water always works well for me. Big buckets, small buckets, frequency, pipelines etc. 21:56
  • Finished Episode 7 on Infinity, definitely my favourite so far. Swords & Rockets FTW!! 22:39
  • Forgot how weird it is driving in new shoes. 23:02
  • Brother's in Good Hope for his op, should go all right :) 08:14

  • @watchinharrison it sounds like a sandwich the size of a barn :/ 08:29
  • @watchinharrison like a footpath? (Mum's half-scouse) 08:34
  • Getting an education in northern slang this morning :) /cc @watchinharrison 08:37
  • After seeing how long it's taking deb/ubuntu to push out patches, I'm once again tempted to try arch. Anyone ever tried it? 08:44
  • RT @patrick_allaert: A: Do you have a time estimation to develop it? B: Mhhh, about 2. A: Hours? B: Don't know the unit yet. #epic #est ... 09:08
  • Doing HTML cut-up. It's been a while. 10:07
  • Are you kidding me? Some bbc.in shortlinks just go the news homepage with a stupid tweet hashtag. Fail almighty. 12:36
  • The new iPad: it's not that impressive in person. Noticeable, but not as big a leap as iPhone retina appeared to be. 13:41
  • http://t.co/yxNKJJY0 is everything that is wrong with the "new" google. 14:28
  • Re my previous tweet: remember when Google made really awesome products with crap UI? That's the Google I loved. Now it's all about the ads. 14:40
  • @Si exactly, it was a question of when not if. But also, going back to a 3GS you can *really* notice the difference, not as much with iPad. 14:42
  • My Top 3 #lastfm Artists: District Tribute (56), Martin O'Donnell (10) & Ludovico Einaudi (9) http://t.co/rSbaFRWv 15:03
  • The next Forza needs: more tracks, dynamic weather and much harder AI. 22:04
  • Was comparing 13" MBP to MBA, then realised Pro has a smaller resolution. 07:38
  • Printing dissertation :D 11:45
  • Dissertation is off to be bound! http://t.co/KlgT35r 12:33
  • 5 days to bind, then I can hand in. Too long. 13:22
  • You won't hear me say this often, but sometimes I miss strict types in PHP. 16:48
  • @joe_turner it's gold leaf bound with unicorn feathers and dragon blood. Bloody cost enough. 17:35
  • Anyone know how to get the expiry time for an item in memcached? Seems like an obvious feature but not even the protocol sends it. 17:36
  • @joe_turner used up £40 in free uni printing credit to actually print the pages :) 17:37
  • @brianlmoon cheers, figured as much. 17:59
  • @brianlmoon awesome, would like to see how others have accomplished it. 18:18
  • @JacobDutton Minority Report, MC is meh. 18:42
  • Watching David Blaine on TED in the @383project office :) 18:42
  • LED streetlights down Allman Rd are weird. Like isolated pools of light. 21:24
  • ran 6.36 km on 16/3/2011 at 8:26 PM http://go.nike.com/8egt99h 21:31
  • So that's how they're ending V? At least we got to see one of the buggers without its skin. 22:22
  • Trying to watch Tron Legacy late at night is futile, it's 90% bass. 22:54
  • It's been a long time since I've woken up feeling this bad. Ergh. 08:02
  • Having a sodding nightmare with this jQuery and Cufon mix. 10:14
  • @Rice does that include yourself then? 10:34
  • My brain has shriveled up into a tiny little ball that hurts if I try and use it. Now I know what @KateLanchester feels like. 12:26
  • Hey @spotify, how about actually, you know, playing some music today? 13:36
  • The hardest writing assignment I ever did was a chem report for under 2K words. Seriously. It's harder to write less than more. 15:06
  • Put my iPhone on shuffle and resisting the urge to skip any tracks, so far only passed on stars and stripes. 15:22
  • @KateLanchester that's just sad on too many levels. I don't think they have an OSI layer low enough to transport that sadness. 18:19
  • Just got Rucksack for Mac OS X completely free. Nothing paid! Really awesome! But hurry, only until March 23rd at http://www.macbuzzer.com 18:24
  • Watching the first episode of The Pacific. 18:38
  • Is it telling the first kill in The Pacific is friendly-fire? 19:18
  • The fact you can now take on 4+ enemies at a time in Splinter Cell kind of means it's not Splinter Cell anymore. Still hope it's good though 20:29
  • The good thing about @Lovefilm's game rentals is I can try games I'd otherwise give a miss. Lego Batman et al should be fun. 21:01
  • In bed, shattered. 21:12
  • had best nights sleep in months, packing bag with stuff before heading off to Uni. Now where did I put my earbuds? 08:12

  • @russellhancox typically late. 09:54
  • Etc and whatever count: 3 already 10:02
  • Awaiting my new Bluetooth keyboard outside the apple store. 11:31
  • Back to uni; a harddrive lighter and keyboard heavier. Two meetings, a lecture and seminar to go. 11:46
  • So handing in coursework and getting it signed off isn't the same as submitting it. 40% mark for me then. 12:33
  • Got to find something to do for 20 minutes before group arrive. #bored 12:39
  • In lecture with @jasdeepbhamra and trying not to fall asleep. 14:31
  • lecture nearly killed me, seminar is pointless (shakes fist at Oracle). Heading home now. 14:52
  • Love my new little apple keyboard, makes using Plex much easier than the basic remote. 17:05
  • @russellhancox that's erm... long. yeah. Firewire is good but my Macs are the only PCs I know with ports for it. 17:15
  • the one month I don't top-up to get free texts and I end up sending about 50 a day. Nuts. 17:42
  • right, off to see the Unborn in a few minutes, that leaves just 2 films I haven't seen this month that I want to. 17:49
  • Priblem with 2 for 1 cinema tickets: we end up seeing two films. Unborn first then Hush. 19:16
  • Unborn was a good comedy, not sure that was the producers objective though. Hopefully Hush will be better. 21:28
  • completed all but 2 time trials on Forza. Just missed target time on Nurburgring by 2 seconds, nuts. 00:53
