  • @thezombiecow There'd be a shock revelation in week six when it's discovered that one of the Brians is infact a Bryan. (I vote May BTW) in reply to thezombiecow #
  • Yay, package arrived safe and sound. #
  • Backing up and ready for reformat. Doing it all manually as don't trust automatic systems to grab everything of importance. #
  • @LadyMcScamp Its interesting that they've done it the opposite way round to usual and thus have minimised disruption. in reply to LadyMcScamp #
  • @LadyMcScamp I don't think its thoughtfulness so much as realising that they risk screwing themselves otherwise. in reply to LadyMcScamp #
  • Didn't watch #bbcqt for fear of shouting and spitting at my TV. However twitter feed suggests Griffin just getting trounced. #
  • No they're fucking not! The British population has had different groups moving across it for many thousands of years. #
  • Oh fuck. Now all the anti-immigration folk start speaking up. #
  • The Moir article would have still been wrong if Gately was alive. #bbcqt #
  • Heading home early with illness. Hope I can head it off before it downs me for proper. #
  • @andyvglnt If it is anything like their laptops, it should be possible to get a converter dongle. (Which they still charge a fortune for.) in reply to andyvglnt #
  • http://j.mp/2IwN9I Teach both evolution and creationism say 54% of Britons. WTF?! I can only hope they don't intend equal consideration. #
  • I can understand it being covered from a historical perspective, to give background to Darwin and subsequent work, but little more than that #
  • Shouldn't have been back to work today. Major hedache started 2ish. Gave up an hour ago, took 'till now to get stuff to a leaveable state. #
  • Gah, can't decide to call in sick or not. Feeling better than the worst of yesterday, but worst than the best. #
  • Would a dynamo powered by a slider be sufficient to provide enough energy to refresh an e-ink screen I wonder. #

  • Oooh! Just noticed Twitter have added little descriptions of why a topic is trending. Neat. #
  • Yay! For once the mistake that cocked up my experiments wasn't mine but someone else's. #
  • In an E-mail from my web-host: "I apologize for any incontinence this may cause." Clearly web-hosting issues can cause some serious fear. #
  • @slummymummy1 Google Wave is bit like a fusion of chat, E-mail and a wiki, and allows for multimedia rich, real-time, messages. j.mp/bkvFj #
  • Oh dear. All my stuff slipped out of the plastic wallets it was organised in. Now I'm not sure what goes with what. #
  • @Gaoandlove Replace it all with J-pop. in reply to Gaoandlove #
  • Wow, Twitter has been busy today. I feel like I've missed out. #
  • Assumed thumping bass was soundtrack to peep show, was vaguely impressed with TV speakers. No, just the neighbous again. #
  • Oh dear, twitter is doing its time-warp thing again. At least the associated trending topic is vaguely amusing. #
  • Oh, how odd, I've noticed Seesmic is picking them up okay #
  • Got tonnes of spam last night for some reason. #
  • Random thought: Does the rhyme scheme of a limerick sound silly because of their content, or is something more implicit in the rhythm? #
  • @antonvowl Ahh, once again my education lets me down. I only half followed the wikipedia page on spondees. in reply to antonvowl #
  • @LewieP I can still see it all proper like. I'm assuming you've tweeked the DNS records? If so it can take a while to propergate. in reply to LewieP #
  • @RealDMitchell Well your imposter has been suspended, so all should be back to normal soon. in reply to RealDMitchell #
  • Crap. Amazon have dispatched my order by Shitty Link. No Idea how I'll reach their depot in the middle of nowhere. #
  • I'd have prefered to have it sent my Royal Mail, even if it means it'd arrive a bit late due to strikes. At least I'd get it. #
  • @TimRogers Oooh! How did you go about doing that? I've got the same issue and it would make my life a lot easier. in reply to timROGERS #
  • City Link are actually a bit more competent than last time I dealt with them. Arranged to have parcel left outside or with a neighbour. #
  • Just booked tickets to go see @jonathancoulton in Edinburgh in November. #

  • @dave_turner I've asked for a touch more off on occasions, but that's usually when its my Dad doing it. in reply to dave_turner #
  • Do any of my followers have Google Wave? I've realised a flaw of wanting to test a service with no one to talk to. #
  • Google Wave seems to be struggling with server load issues at the moment. Hope they scale things up soon. #
  • Two girls behind me pretending to be German. They have the most unconvincing accents ever, and laughable, 'Dis is the British Isles yah?' #
  • @OyeBilly Sadly my German extends to counting to ten. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • The way the papers are treating it you'd have thought the Tories had already won the election. #
  • Hmm, Amazon order dispatched by Royal Mail. Despite strikes I'm still somewhat relieved. Somehow other couriers manage to be even worse. #
  • @SmartLudmilla Yeah, in the UK a C— is far more likely to be male than female. It implies arrogance and general unpleasentness. in reply to SmartLudmilla #
  • Amused that Bono is trending higher than Cameron. #
  • Everyone is a bit quiet arround here. Is twitter having issues? #
  • Errm, how odd. I can see people's tweets if I go to their page, but my feed isn't updating. #
  • Hmm, seems I'm not the only one: http://bit.ly/RamdN #
  • Talking into this void somewhat highlights the ultimate futility of twitter. Or something. Either way, it feels odd. #
  • Twitter timeline slowly seems to be grabbing posts, but all in the past. Still not convinced I'm seeing everything though. #
  • Ooh! Only 15 minutes behind now. That possibly even means all is well! #
  • Just read an article for the second time, only then to notice that it was illustrated with gratuitous breasts. Why?! #
  • I realize that my previous tweet was ambiguous. My Why?! was directed at the need for gratuitous breasts, not that I didn't notice them. #
  • @MsKitton@bengoldacre Many UK freecycle groups have now split off from the US parent and are called freegle groups. http://j.mp/1Xbbkb #
  • http://twitpic.com/kt6tg – Unfortunately named sweets. #
  • Gah. Completely lost track of politics etc. and am now entirely confused. #
  • Crap. Just said 'wanker' at passing car pumping out loud dance music. Windows was open. Driver wasn't happy. #
  • @OyeBilly At least your grievence was somewhat more severe than being subjected to their taste in music. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • @OyeBilly http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/OddNameOut in reply to OyeBilly #
  • Fuck. Fuck. Fuckity. Fuck. Yet another shit result. Seriously don't think I'll be able to get these experiments working in time. #
  • While I like consistency across a computer, I somehow doubt its value when it adds my cat to my address book. #
  • Finding Micro Men strangely sad. #
  • @GeekinTheGambia Aggh! I did Biotechnology YES a couple of years ago. We were useless, had no idea about buisness stuff whatsoever. in reply to GeekinTheGambia #
  • Hah! Once again the Streisand effect is evident in the trending topics.There is something enormously satisfying in that. #
  • @janole I think fetch date may be better as otherwise things may get confusing across time-zones. in reply to janole #
  • @leighalexander Planescape:Torment obviously not only removed death, but made the PC's immortality central to its story. in reply to leighalexander #
  • @MsKitton Did you know that you've been linked by Sunny over at Pickled Politics? http://bit.ly/rPJcx #
  • Just had a 'wrong number' on Skype, which shouldn't even be possible with my privacy settings. How odd. #

  • Applied for a Google Wave invite. Doubt I'll get one, as I can't exactly explain why I want one. Other than for pure curiosities sake. #
  • @qikipedia There are a series of genes that control development called hedgehog genes. Inc. Indian, desert and, erm, sonic hedgehog. in reply to qikipedia #
  • @qikipedia Mutations in sonic hegehog can result in polydactaly (extra fingers and toes) in reply to qikipedia #
  • RT @indiegamescom Machinarium Demo is Available for Download http://bit.ly/47Svzt #

  • Court order served via twitter http://bit.ly/uFD1a (With URL this time) #
  • @guardiantech So that'll be one peak rate first class open return between Edinburgh and London then? in reply to guardiantech #
  • Just had a chilling thought. Perhaps MS intended the whole W7 launch party thing to be a viral mess of saccharine opiated horror. #
  • I am a mastermind-seeker, what kind of gamer are you? http://survey.ihobo.com/BrainHex/ #
  • Just caught the end of DB before peepshow. Did he genuinely fuck up, or did it make more sense in context? #
  • @botherer CiF especially has always been a bit mad, seems that they'll let anyone write, but that is just laughable. in reply to botherer #
  • @botherer I'd suggest getting Goldacre in there, but that would only reinforce Andrew's bizzare notions that there is some kind of war on. #
  • Ugh, how do you go about complaining about noisy neighbours? Last time I tried (different set) they just started ringing my doorbell at 4am #
  • @MsKitton I think it just sends you through to the police station. Its not too bad though, I have earplugswhich cut out most the noise. in reply to MsKitton #
  • Yay! Finally seem to have the knack for unlocking front door. Unlocked first go twice today. In, up and twist. #
  • Oh dear god, I'm glad that was an advert to attract social workers and not a poorly concieved Tetlys advert. #
  • @rockpapershot To celebrate Kieron's defeat to the monster, what is your favourite monste? (Gaming or otherwise) in reply to rockpapershot #
  • Smoke alarm going off downstairs. How do you know when a flat is actually on fire? #
  • @LadyMcScamp It seems to have stopped now. So either they've sorted it, or it is a smouldering heap of burnt plastic. Possibly both. in reply to LadyMcScamp #
  • Receiving spam (allegedly) from someone famous enough to have a wikipedia page about them. It appears to be encouraging peace. How odd. #
  • Wait, people still use Hotmail? #
  • Yes! I have a Google Wave invite! An actual invite, activation URL and all! #
