  • @slummymummy1 Don't worry, 'unstructured first year' probably saves you from DM hood. in reply to slummymummy1 #
  • Oooh, got brought an Aperature Science mug. #
  • @rockpapershot Eeep?! They pulled them? Due to the layout problems, or just other reasons? (Assuming you can even say) in reply to rockpapershot #
  • @PrincessZelda Oh no! What happened? in reply to PrincessZelda #

  • Noise downstairs again. They really are inconsiderate buggers. Chatting to other flat in the building and everyone seems annoyed by them. #
  • Vending machine ate my 20p, making me sad. Will have to buy chocolate from a non-cheaty source #
  • Wow! Gameswipe is trending. Should be good though. #
  • @charltonbrooker Very much enjoyed Gameswipe. Was pleased to see older stuff in there, and not just the top ten from the past two years. in reply to charltonbrooker #
  • @ashens Hehe, I'm glad I wasn't the only one growling 'she was his housekeeper damnit!' at that point. in reply to ashens #
  • Cock. Why is it always Windows that cocks up my dual/tripple boot setup. Will need to repair it all tomorrow. #
  • Pft. Does the sun's weather forcast also claim that it 'backs' rain, and later that it rained 'cause the sun said so? #

  • @ashens Oooh, care to reveal any details? I have a small suspicion as to what it may be. in reply to ashens #
  • Why on earth is one of the Jonas brother's birthday wishes trending? I thought twitter was supposed to be uncool with teens. #
  • @kierongillen Is wombed bread safe to google at work? in reply to kierongillen #
  • @rockpapershot Looking fancy, albeit still sluggish. Forum looks much improved, though I still need to explore it in depth. in reply to rockpapershot #
  • Uneven sausage cookage leads me to conclude that I have a wonky grill. (And to suddenly feel self concious about the fact I'm not vege) #
  • @OyeBilly But I like the skin! Unless we are talking about bananas. But otherwise, most skin is tasty. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • @OyeBilly Ahh. My squid experience is probably insufficient to conclude as to whether I prefer it with or without skin. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • @slummymummy1 I'm in the lab. It would probably get me sacked, or worse, covered in nasty chemicals. in reply to slummymummy1 #
  • Gah! I HATE disco stick, or whatever it's called. #
  • Have the horrible feeling that I'm forgetting something important! #
  • Huh? Where's my avatar gone? #
  • No bacon rolls due to 'half day.' However I won't be taking half day either. Bah! #
  • Why do the interwebs keep trying to sell me weight loss programs and teeth whitening stuff? #
  • Bet @Derrenbrown 's latest trick works by getting you to sit in a manner in which it is physically difficult to stand. #
  • Yup, if you sit legs straight in front, back into sofa and hands placed fingers in at top of legs is v. difficult to stand. Possible but … #
  • 'course, if it does work that way, is still a neat trick. Wonder what kind of padding we'll get this week? #Derrenbrown #
  • Much better than last week, and looking like my prediction is wrong. #Derrenbrown #
  • Mwhahah! Okay, I was right. #
  • Just had a wasp try and repeatedly dive bomb my lips. #
  • Great analysis of dating replies over on okcupid. (via B3ta) I especially love the performance of the word zombie. http://bit.ly/12haVb #
  • Gahh! Major follow spam! #
  • 11 followers in 9 minutes!, all spammers. #
  • Back into playing a bit of Dwarf Fortress. Embarked somewhere where all the surface water dried up come summer. Need underground river! #
  • @LadyMcScamp To be fair, I'm pretty sure his daughters would regret it; when he trired to CUT IT OFF WITH A KNIFE. in reply to LadyMcScamp #
  • Fed up of the bulkiness of my neolithic MP3 player. Contemplating upgrade. #
  • Eeep, half the trending topics are just spam. #
  • University didn't deliver registration forms for '4th' year. Treck across city to join long queue. Would prefer to be doing actual work. #
  • @bengoldacre I'm more annoyed by their atrocious links to papers. No excuse in a world of dois and short urls. http://bit.ly/kCkLp in reply to bengoldacre #
  • @bengoldacre Unfortunately never seen a paper linked directly from a newspaper, occasionally links to journal front pages. in reply to bengoldacre #
  • @bengoldacre 'Atrocious' was somewhat of an understatement, and 'non-existent' would have been more accurate. in reply to bengoldacre #
  • @bengoldacre Come to think of it, do any of your links to papers survive the cut? I'm more used to reading on your blog. in reply to bengoldacre #

  • RT @TechCrunch Twitpocalypse II Coming To A Twitter Client Near You This Friday http://bit.ly/10w5m7 #
  • #DerrenBrownLotteryPrediction Simple sleight of hand? I doubt collusion with Camelot. Camera trickery would be out of keeping with him… #
  • @SarahFCraig Difficulty with that is the number of combinations involved. More likely somehow assembled sequence after event. in reply to SarahFCraig #
  • Just seen a diet advert in which the 'before' photo appears to be a pregnant woman. Lose 10lb in 1 week it says. Hmmm. #
  • @DerrenBrown Will be dissapointed if its just camera trickery. in reply to DerrenBrown #
  • @bremxjones Mainly due to RPS and PC gaming in general. in reply to bremxjones #
  • Gah! Flat beneath being noisy again. Hope they don't go on 'till half twelve again. Sounds like guitar practice tonight… #
  • @antonvowl You owe me the braincells I just destroyed bashing my head against the heel of my hand after reading that comment. in reply to antonvowl #
  • Gahh! Now things have stopped inducing! Why? Why would they do that? #science #rant #
  • Main TV in use by temporary flatmates, so watching Derren Brown on analogue via 6cm long aerial. Quality VERY poor! #
  • So how long is @DerrenBrown going to bullshit us for before he reveals that his numbers were only determined AFTER the draw? #
  • More impressed by the mouse trick than the lottery one. #
  • @DerrenBrown is still clearly trying to mislead us #
  • Talk about misdirection, I'm pretty sure he's been flat out lying so far. #DerrenBrownLotteryPrediction #
  • Oooh, just noticed how all previous guesses also came AFTER the draw. #DerrenBrownLotteryPrediction #
  • Errm, one heap of obvious bullshit, followed by a marginally less obvious heap of bullshit. #DerrenBrownLotteryPrediction #
  • We began with an impossible, moved on to an improbable, but there are a darn sight more probables which aren't impossible! #
  • @LewieP Bah, I don't even buy his 'fixing it' excuse. Plenty of easier and far more legal ways of achieving the same result. in reply to LewieP #
  • I really should write about popular trending stuff more often! I get so many more visitors to my blog that way. #
  • Hehe! Props to the person that found my blog Googling "derren brown maths bullshit" #
  • Nooo! No interwebs via desktop until Monday. Just tripped bandwidth. #
  • Yay! Just realised that some of Friday's stuff worked after all. #
  • @OyeBilly I'm secretly pleased when I overhear small children spotting my long hair and mistaking me for female. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • @OyeBilly Only had one adult do it though, which was mildly amusing as they suddenly got all appologetic. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • Just seen District 9. Had avoided reading about it, so didn't know quite what to expect. Good, although style changes a bit odd. #
  • Gah! A party downstairs AGAIN! They appear to be listening to dance version of 'Love story'?! WTF? #
  • @jimrossignol Yep, RPS reader. Well not exclusively, I have other facets of my personality, but they aren't so relevent in this case. in reply to jimrossignol #
  • Trying to decide on tomorrow's tea. Casserole Chorizo, butter beans, shallots, red wine, chestnut mushrooms. Suggestions? #
  • Confused by spam implying correlation between my penis size and travel arrangements. It didn't even make sense metaphorically. #
  • @Jestrun @gunnarsimonsen Sorry, not the right person. in reply to Jestrun #
  • Like some of the new default twitter icons, better than the blue on brown emoticon thingy. #
  • I wish news agencies would do a little bit of research. The use of a GPU as a general purpose parallel processor is well established. #
  • The fact that a researcher in Warwick used an Xbox 360 does not make it novel. It just makes it a bizzare choice for running custom code. #
  • @Optimaximal Indeed, and I wouldn't be surprised is the XBox in question was a dev version supplied by MS. in reply to Optimaximal #

  • 'Last Chance to See' Starts on BBC2 this Sunday. @stephenfry revisits the endangered animals in Douglas Adams' book. http://bit.ly/3dNNBn #
  • Ahh, about time. Was having major trouble tweeting for a while then, was worried tweets would be duplicated several times. #
  • @rockpapershot inspired by the strange glove thing, do you see anything doing in the kb+mouse as the primary control system for PC Gaming? in reply to rockpapershot #
  • Ugh, a pornbot tweeted, "It's pretty difficult this site, maybe a cute boy could help me out ;)" At least I hope its a porn bot ::shudders:: #
  • Eeep, I'm keeping a close eye on bandwidth usage. Getting dangerously close to 10GB monthly limit on mobile broadband. (Resets 14th) #
  • @Gaoandlove 1st September? Its the 4th today. in reply to Gaoandlove #
  • Whoops, my flat situation wasn't as long term as I thought. Eeep! #fb #
  • Homophobic crap trending. (Oooh, as an added bonus there is racist shit thrown in there as well.) Won't add to it. #Idontcarewhoyoulove #
  • This is truly chilling, skimming PDF now. RT @wikileaks: EU thinktank declares war on the poor http://tinyurl.com/wleuiss #
  • Hmm, page 19 and so far the PDF itself seems fairly innocuous. #
  • Gah, getting late. Think relevant stuff starts on Pg. 61 (Pdf page 63) but need sleep. #
  • Its like a parody of industry immaturity and sexism. Except its real. Ugh. RT @bremxjones: Fucking developers: http://bit.ly/SPYld #
  • Overheard: "What is the big deal about a moose?!" What indeed? #
  • Great, appear to have attracted the attention of Christian spambots. Maybe the moose was a metaphore for Jesus. #
  • @Filmstalker Ahh, is that what it was. It was flying very low over the West End, was a bit worried it was in trouble. in reply to Filmstalker #
  • @Filmstalker Not especially, and given its height (and size) I would certainly expected a bit more noise, but I'm no expert on these things. in reply to Filmstalker #
  • @bengoldacre I have long hoped for capes to come into fashion. Perhaps you could be a trend setter. (amongst geeky skeptic types at least) in reply to bengoldacre #
  • Want to play computer game, but nothing I own really leaping out. A bit silly. #
  • Oh dear, Radio 1 is a Chris Moyles wankfest this morning. #
  • @bengoldacre Much better than the guy I heard last week suggesting that everything should be automatically irrevocably patented. in reply to bengoldacre #
  • Why does every mildly interesting result I get in this PhD inevitably turn out to be an artifact? #

  • @VickieWire It is the latest version of OSX, the operating system found on Apple Macs. (Think of it as a new version of Windows.) in reply to VickieWire #
  • @slummymummy1 I don't know, I don't even know who some of the people following me are. in reply to slummymummy1 #
  • Oh dear, I've just noticed that whenever I read the word 'simple' I add an s to the end and hear it in a faux-Russian accent. Stupid adverts #
  • @slummymummy1 How odd, a spambot just retweeted your last tweeting @ me. (See @thatstwit) in reply to slummymummy1 #
  • Racing the clouds home. #
  • Tweet barely sent and already fearing I'll loose #
  • @andyvglnt I think they are a voice we need, even if they seem to eschew sense for sensationalism on occasions. Though it would be nice… in reply to andyvglnt #
  • @andyvglnt … If more moderate (read 'evidence based') greens got a louder voice. Otherwise too easy to write off problems with panics. in reply to andyvglnt #
  • @andyvglnt Was treating one as a subfaction of the other though. Is there something I'm missing? in reply to andyvglnt #
  • @andyvglnt Ahh, getting our tweets crossed over a bit here. Instant messaging it ain't. in reply to andyvglnt #
  • Gahh! almost home and remembered that I needed to set something up #
  • just voted "Atheist! :D" on "Show Us Twitter's Religious Diversity." vote too ➔ http://bit.ly/LIJ8G #

  • @OyeBilly Yep, last Sunday. Was good thanks. in reply to OyeBilly #
  • @ladylikepunk Ahh hello, sorry I couldn't join all you lot, PhD proving a bit of a time sink. Hello to everyone there though. in reply to ladylikepunk #
  • Oh dear, where did that glass of wine go? It was full a moment ago. Drinking on own a worrying development. #
  • @Feminazery RT Ahh hello, sorry I couldn't join all you lot, PhD proving a bit of a time sink. Hello to everyone there though. #
  • Haha, reading LastFM comments, some people miss the point, EPICLY "I got very disappointed when I found out that Lola was a man ¬¬" #
  • Noooo! Not only have I fallen into the rabbit hole that is TV Tropes, but I linked across into Wikipedia. Well there goes Sunday. #
  • @PrincessZelda I think I might, I currently stand at 16 tabs, and some of those will certainly spawn more. in reply to PrincessZelda #
  • Just pre-ordered Scribblenauts. Never thought I'd pre-order a DS game. #
  • Jealous of those who have today off. #fb #
  • @yuribou Welcome back, hope the honeymoon prooved fun! in reply to yuribou #
  • @BuckSexington Some people would panic buy Bog Roll if they thought it made an anti-EU statement. in reply to BuckSexington #
  • Was MC Hammer naff in the 80's or is it merely a status acrued with time? #
  • Feel like requesting something subversive on Radio 1 but they seem to be playing it very safe with requests. #
  • I really need an additional anonymous twitter account, but who'd follow it? Telling friends and followers here would defeat the point! #
  • Gah, why do I have Christmas songs stuck in my head? It's september! #
