  • Sat, 21:23: I see London now gets the Pokemon Go locator that was in beta in SF. https://t.co/DmShay20tj
  • Sun, 16:13: It's probably good that a startup mailed nearly every tech journalist in the world without a BCC on a Saturday. No one replies on Saturday.
  • Sun, 18:28: Back to the 90s. Much of this was my UK Online soundtrack. #NowPlaying The Collection by The Shamen ♫ https://t.co/9AUulgkFCC
  • Sun, 18:35: Rather enjoying the Lethal Weapon TV series. Classic buddy cop comedy that still turns into a decent police procedural.

  • Fri, 13:34: A bald ram is trapped in a field by angry german shepherds. He must save all the lambs. It's Christmas. Die Herd.
  • Fri, 14:45: A loud squawk from the garden, a flash of green: two parrots heading out over the railway cuttings, followed by a pigeon. New combatants?
  • Fri, 17:03: I almost like the "alt-write" joke that was going round, but then I realised it was intended to make actual neo-Nazis less scary. Nope.
  • Fri, 19:00: RT @JolyonMaugham: As you tootle off for your weekends, spare a thought for the lawyers preparing for the Supreme Court. Their bundles are…
  • Fri, 22:50: Recent Reads: Nobody's Perfect. Westlake's Dortmunder bungles another caper. Stolen paintings and drunken Scots; nothing ever goes right.

  • Wed, 17:29: Never understood why they translated the titles of Yann Tiersen's early albums for the recent re-release.
  • Wed, 17:34: Brexit means Brexit means GNU means Emacs. It all makes sense now!
  • Thu, 10:28: Interesting. HMD, the company using the Nokia brand for Android devices in 2017, is working with FIH, who bought the feature phone business.
  • Thu, 11:29: (putting the heating on)
  • Thu, 13:51: As falls Wichita, so falls Wichita Falls.

  • Wed, 12:54: Ted Chiang's latest short is a sombre meditation on the Fermi Paradox: https://t.co/W44vk57K6X
  • Wed, 13:13: Package tracking: FedEx is an Outlook extension. UPS is a Skype Bot. I just want unified package tracking in one place!
  • Wed, 13:15: As far as I understand it, the Autumn Statement boils down to "Brexit broke the economy, but we'll spend lots of money to make it better."
  • Wed, 13:58: Can I get to volunteer to get this promised Fibre To The Home; after all my words are a valuable export commodity.
  • Wed, 14:58: In the wake of the IP Act's data retention requirements UK ISPs have made a new hire: https://t.co/RStFbsFo2h
  • Wed, 16:02: Cheese-on-toast o'clock.
  • Wed, 16:55: Today I defeated the Gaggia and made a decent latte for the first time. Not only that, but it passed the @marypcbuk test.
  • Wed, 17:06: This is why we say rocket science is hard. So close, and one error means it's all over. https://t.co/RKFUCQrHj4
  • Wed, 17:28: Microsoft Solitaire now on Android. https://t.co/YqG5zF37cX

  • Mon, 18:59: Discussion of a warrant canary disappearing turns into an argument about pronouncing FOIA. Oh Hacker News, never change.
  • Mon, 19:33: Study In Emerald #flickr https://t.co/Ip4tYguIF1
  • Mon, 20:02: TFW you're listening to a Seattle radio station in London and it's advertising Sasquatch seminars as a reason for going to a casino.
  • Mon, 20:45: A flooded Bonneville Salt Flats and a reflected peak #flickr https://t.co/ZaSujVK3wR
  • Mon, 22:50: So x86 on ARM? Quite possible with the latest ARM architectures. THUMB2 is a very flexible instruction set. And ARM has hardware VM support.
  • Tue, 14:35: Worried about Powershell replacing CMD? Don't be: you can use all your command line skills in Powershell, you just get access to more.
  • Tue, 14:46: I'm not worried by the return of the Hofmeister Bear. It's the rebranding of it as craft beer that I find personally offensive.
  • Tue, 14:59: For some reason today is being brought to you by The Beatles. FYI I'm pretty sure that reason is Luc Besson.
  • Tue, 15:10: There's a whole generation of internet users who don't know the joy of seeing a "SKIP INTRO" button.
  • Tue, 15:16: Decided my new one-line bio should be "Been there. Done that. Have the pile of t-shirts to prove it."

  • Mon, 16:24: Where does one "move on" from UKIP? https://t.co/6PXuXKdmeO
  • Mon, 16:45: Not surprised that Apple is stopping making wireless routers. Current WiFi is pushing the boundaries of RF, and good RF engineers are rare.
  • Mon, 16:50: One area where Apple has always been weak in Airport is in antenna design; right from the original devices.
  • Mon, 16:53: Recent Reads: Altered Starscape. Ian Douglas' delivers deep future space opera, in colliding galaxies full of megastructures. Widescreen.
  • Mon, 18:01: So Many Rainbows #flickr https://t.co/DsQjcXwlFO
  • Mon, 18:16: "Why, sometimes I've believed as many as six impossible things before Brexit."

  • Mon, 18:47: It occurs to me that SF showed the world the future, and the world ignored it again. Sadly this time though it was the Puppies.

  • Wed, 15:43: Meetings today plus the last few months are gelling thoughts on digital transformation. Now I need to find someone to pay for them.
  • Wed, 15:54: So is @natfriedman the new @scottgu?
  • Wed, 16:45: The Cloud at Cafe Nero is far better for streaming than BT at Starbucks. Also the coffee is better.
  • Wed, 17:16: So MS is taking dependencies on Appium despite its recent issues?
  • Wed, 17:29: Also, custom monitors are so much better for my ears while listening to a stream. Windows volume at 15, everything clear.
  • Wed, 17:31: RT @AhirShah: I have a Brexit plan. You don't know her. She goes to another school
  • Wed, 17:34: RT @timanderson: Over 60% of contributions to .NET Core come from outside Microsoft #msftconnect

  • Thu, 11:51: I never imagined a comedy show about the philosophy of ethics could work so well. Really loving The Good Place.

  • Sun, 18:56: Hope all my NZ friends are OK.
  • Mon, 11:54: In times like these it's worth reading John Brunner's 1970s quartet of futurist SF. He lived our 21st century before we did.
  • Mon, 11:57: Recent Re-reads: Lord Valentine's Castle. Robert Silverberg's Big Planet picaresque continues to provide much needed escapism. A delight.

Linked your Microsoft account? Make sure you do this too to protect your connection. https://t.co/zQtOgQxiGB Tue, 16:25: RT @Halo: Do your civic duty, Spartans. #electionday https://t.co/RuXmUs199H Tue, 19:32: So what effect on the Candy Crush MAUs will the election queues in the US have? Maybe King should offer free lives for voters... Tue, 19:54: So how do I reset a US Amazon Echo to be a UK one? @ckindel?

Gains, access to UK resources. And a British accent Tue, 21:01: Someone needs to show this chump a history book. It was July 4th 1776. Kind of shows the historical illiteracy that… https://t.co/R13RzSSRmA Tue, 21:36: If you say "Yes please" or "Yes thank you" Cortana can't understand you. I was brought up to be polite. It's hard talking to AI (@marcusash) Tue, 21:57: Pretty sure that the radio was just advertising a "high quality Linux furnace". Tue, 22:13: Skype Preview uses a BlackBerry-style splat for notifications. Flashback time. Tue, 23:52: RT @kclemson: Allow me to take a break for a moment to tweet about work for a change. https://t.co/UD40nSWSyo Tue, 23:56: RT @eliotpeper: Let's not let our country turn into an actual dystopia. They're more fun to read about than live in. https://t.co/D6hfwcUZoq Wed, 07:39: Oh crap. Wed, 08:02: Step back from false equivalences, from "balance". This should be about facts, nothing else. The world is broken, it is up to us to fix it. Wed, 10:21: Yeah, this. https://t.co/X0o6IdMXWl Wed, 11:34: Switching to the new Skype as my default IM platform. Wed, 11:52: (Finding 2016 almost as depressing as 2003 was. Though for very different reasons.) Wed, 13:02: Oooh. My custom in-ear monitors have arrived. Wed, 15:09: Is there a known issue with Surface Book and O2 WiFi? This is the second time I've had to fake up a DHCP lease to get connected. Wed, 15:19: The fundamental problem lies in Wall Street, and in "run the company for shareholder value". Until you end that, you won't get change. Wed, 15:41: The Lucifer binge watch will continue.

  • Mon, 12:13: The real surprise to anyone familiar with email e-discovery tooling is that the FBI took so long to analyse those emails.
