  • Bah, silly antibodies, binding tot the wrong things. If you were in a person your host would be dead by now. #
  • Bah! Booking train tickets is the biggest lottery ever. Managed to get save £50 by splitting my ticket half-way. #
  • @charltonbrooker Very good. Have you heard the term ‘Reverse Ferret’ by any chance? http://everything2.com/node/1942475 #
  • Wow, more friends getting engaged. I guess I have reached ‘that age.’ #
  • Testing out the new twitter #search #
  • @LadyMsScamp You can get paid for it? Now I feel sheepish, as I’ve been doing it for free. #
  • @bengoldacre Really? So I take it that this is more advertising do than serious conference? Sleazy at that, doesn’t exactly give confidence. #
  • Friday, and sunny. Lets just hope my westerns work. #
  • http://bit.ly/GXJyA No, he attacked her because he was a violent jerk; sandwich wasn’t the cause. Why does the media always seem to do this? #
  • Meanwhile I have convinced myself to head into the lab tomorrow. Damn work ethic! #
  • Oh, and that last tweet was my 500th. I’ve been watching the counter and forgot last minute. Bah! #
  • Seems that the residents of Broughton were so bothered about their privacy that they got the BBC cameras in for interviews and pictures. #
  • Gah! I suck at #Spelunky I can’t even get to level 5! #
  • Gah. Its the weekend and I’m in the lab. Not helped by feelings of ennui, only tempered by the fact it means I can use ennui. Great word! #
  • Trying Omegle, its odd. Like a throwback to chatting on the web circa ’98. Have basically just done a verbose a/s/l, feel dirty. #
  • Gah, what to blog about. #
  • @wplifestream Have upgraded to 0.95 and like the new streams, however [lifestream] is returning “There are no events to show at this time.” #

  • I just had spotify crash on me for the first time. #
  • @thewellis For a moment there I thought you were denouncing our @VickieWire and was breifly shocked. #
  • Oh dear god. Just checked the interest rate on my savings account. 0.15% Gros Pa. Terrible! Will be spending it soonish though. #
  • Hmm, considering Co-Operative bank as I like their ethical investment policy. Google; Christian Voice against them. Point in favour I think! #
  • Watching ‘Come Dine with Me’ Trash television at its finest! #
  • Does anyone else think renaming Norwich Union, Aviva, just makes it sound incredible corporate and impersonal? #
  • Aww, I’m disappointed that I’ve never been added by any right wing politicians, I want to subtlety warp their thinking in 140 characters. #
  • @slummymummy1 I was always more partial to the word Tosser. #
  • RT @guardiannews Video reveals G20 police assault on man who died: http://tinyurl.com/c7wv9e #
  • @Palestinebat I say give yourself an honoury doctorate #
  • This http://bit.ly/14zkkX indicates why this http://bit.ly/3MXLZ is a bad idea. #

  • Back in the UK now. Twitter use will recommence #
  • I’ve just realised how depressingly few photos I have of certain people. #
  • Whoops. Completely missed the #boatrace. It seems we lost though. (And that I disproportionately follow Cambridge supporters) #
  • GAH! What it the point of making me use a special ‘downloader’ when the damn thing won’t let me ‘resume’ 5GB of download wasted! ARGGGH! #
  • Oh I see, I’m meant to use the little close button, rather than the big ‘stop’ button next to pause. Well it would be nice IF IT TOLD ME! #
  • Lets see whether it is bright enough to detect the results of file recovery #
  • Excellent. It took a bit of a fiddle, but I’ve managed to rescue it. Now to send an E-mail. #
  • @alibally13 http://twitpic.com/2kpq1 – They definitely got it out: http://tinyurl.com/gotitout I also vote for removable #
  • @Dave_Gorman Not fake, but the bollards are probably removable. Google Street View: http://tinyurl.com/gotitout in reply to Dave_Gorman #
  • @oliverchalliner Thanks. I saw the photo on a forum a couple of years back, and the location was narrowed down to Quay St. Manchester then. #
  • @LadyMcScamp Disapointed to hear that the SexEdShow was a bit extremist/reactionary. I saw the premise in G2 and thought it had potential #

  • Oh dear, things are looking more complicated than I had assumed. The hope of getting any more results before Lisbon looking slim now. #
  • @LadyMcScamp The New Dora is wearing fishnets? Or have I misunderstood? #
  • @LadyMcScamp That makes more sense. I saw the silhouettes and couldn’t help but think it disturbing, like some gross parody. #
  • @slummymummy1 You could at least try and track down the owner. #
  • Right. Think I’ve got everything together for the next release of my FO3 mod. Just changelog etc. to do now. But before that bed. And work. #
  • About to have a ‘how to write your thesis’ course. Seems you can’t just print it all off from Wikipedia. #
  • @LadyMcScamp Never actually seen LW, but only heard bad things about it from pretty much everyone. Does anyone like it non-ironically? #
  • We have a new centrifuge. Woo! My life is clearly overwhelmed with excitement. #
  • Bugger. ‘incident’ on the line. Delays, busses and cancelations. #
  • Yay! Blockage cleared! No replacement bus needed. #
  • @slummymummy1 Totally with you on Lidl, a lot of rubbish, but some amazingly fantastic stuff as well. Their tomatoes are great. #
  • Been nuking Edinburgh, http://www.carloslabs.com/node/16 #
  • @bengoldacre How on earth can endnote claim a violation of the EULA for someone who doesn’t even need to accept it? Wish Opera had Zotero. #
  • Blooming eck! I know I’m at home on a Friday night, but four singles ads on Facebook is a bit much! #
  • Five rather! #
  • Bah. Watching TV now have craving for poppy seed cake. Mmmm, poppy seeds. #
  • It is sunny and I an wearing my summer jacket. No sunglasses yet though. #
  • @stephenfry Get back to advertising Twinings, the current ads are terrible! #
  • @antonvowl I can pick up a copy for you if you like. #
  • @antonvowl I’ll see if I can sneak a photo. in reply to antonvowl #

  • @thewellis Can you get it on inter library loan? #
  • @rockpapershot Racism in World of Goo, after all, its abbreviation is WoG. (And yes, that was a silly suggestion) #
  • @rockpapershot A More serious idea on gaming elements in non-gaming media. (Eg. Social networking, flickr, Google Street View) #
  • Oohh! My local excahnge is trialling 60Mbit/s broadband! #
  • Oh damn, goes live ‘Early next year’ when I’ll no longer be here. #
  • Going to be in Lisbon on conference from tomorrow. Will try and check tweets etc. but imagine it’ll be a bit awkward. #

  • Hmm think I have everything packed, but know I’m missing something #

  • I have food at last. I hate defrosting stuff. #
  • @robmanuel Ahh, before you fleshed out the list I thought badscience referred to @Bengoldacre fanboys, rather than their targets. #
  • @stephenfry Twitter is obviously far more mainstream than I had assumed if it contains folks who don’t know about the Kindle #
  • Once again everyone is complaining about the new facebook. Seems that folk just don’t like change, or like complaining. #
  • @VickieWire They are rolling it out slowly, it wont have changed for many people yet. #
  • @inkiepixie Yes, I was just amused at how quickly the complaints started up. I wondered if they were the same people as six months ago. #
  • @inkiepixie Whoops, just realised you probably didn’t see my tweet @vickiewire Yes, they are rolling it out slowly, most don’t have it yet. #
  • How odd, someone clearly plugged my website on a bondage chatroom, at least if my referrer logs are accurate. #
  • @slummymummy you want to keep the # out of the brackets if he is to find it. eg. #hashtags #
  • @VickieWire What did he do? Include BNP pamphlets with the semi-skimmed? #
  • Bah. After a recent tweet this feels hypocritical but ‘New Facebook Sucks!’ It won’t let me update my status with Opera! #
  • @VickieWire I thought you hated Avon? Or is this the reason why you hate Avon? #
  • Pah, I may just as well remove the google ads on my blog. In three years I’ve made a total of $4.38 and they won’t even pay out until $100 #
  • @thewellis I wondered where you were going with that. I thought you’d ask us what we wanted #
  • @thewellis Hmm, I shall have to have a think. There are films I hate, and films that are just crap, but something that will have me shrivel? #
  • @ladylikepunk 29th March #
  • Just noticed the ‘featured user’ bit in the sidebar, when did they add that? #
  • Yay! Facebook now works again in Opera. Seems that my little ‘downgrade’ last night didn’t actually work. #
  • @slummymummy To steak or to blowjobs? #
  • @bonzrat Do you need example replies from your keen followers. Because if so here is a prompt yet boring one. #
  • Am I the only person who did a double take on hearing the arrest of a ‘leading Republican,’ until I realised the story was from N.I. not USA #
  • @qikipedia Assuming of course no near-lightspeed space travel #
  • @stephenfry Is there ever a week in which you aren’t travelling somewhere? #
  • Finding errors in scientific papers. When a person gets the author wrong it makes the reference hard to find. #
  • Vaguely amused by the return of the Megadrive. Strangely tempted to pick one up. #
  • @smallmatryoshka Ahh, I have a 400D, haven’t got any abandoned victorian warehouses though. in reply to smallmatryoshka #
  • Bah, wish my graphics card had video capture like my old one. I need to grab some Wii screen-shots for a blog post. #
  • @slummymummy1 I block them because I think it trips twitters ‘suspicious activity’ filter. #
  • @slummymummy1 If you click on a banned account you get a message saying the account was flagged for ‘suspicious activity’ in reply to slummymummy1 #
  • My cells grew too slowly to use today, but tomorrow, tomorrow they will face my wrath! #
  • @slummymummy1 No trouble here #
  • Bah! I’ve just spent an hour and a half trying to work out why a window wasn’t displaying, only to realise that it was just off-screen #

  • @robmanuel 2007 had a few, but ’08/’09 is more limited. Sackboy? Sony certainly is trying to make it. Mirror’s Edge’s Faith? #
  • Trying #spotify interface seems smooth, I’m just somewhat shocked by being able to listen to anything I want. Now need to fiddle. #
  • @slummymummy Its a media player, but instead of playing your own music you stream it from their servers, giving access to thousands of songs #
  • @slummymummy Its all legal, supported by advertisements or a monthly subscription. Seems okay, but I wish it could play local media as well #
  • Hmm, spotify seems fairly nice. A few interface annoyances, and some slightly odd categorisations (Atomic Kitten, Rock?) #
  • Doing simple but lengthy work at the moment, so mind drifting. Was wondering how human society would have evolved if we were hermaphrodites #
  • @VickieWire Good going. #
  • Oooh, just noticed the new search box. That makes things all sorts of simpler! #
  • @inkiepixie I wondered that at first, and then slowly my dependency grew. #
  • Each year, 1 in 10 women in Britain experience rape or other violence http://www.oneten.org.uk #
  • Bah! Bioedit just crashed on me, and I lost my alignments. Poor sequence, lots of it read manually. Time wasted, only some on clipboard. #
  • Oww, I have chilli burning my nose #
  • Re-skinned my twitter page. The background is a touch larger than I’d have liked, but my experiments with low colour versions looked poor. #
  • @slummymummy1 Don’t leave us hanging, what was in the package? #
  • @rockpapershot All fixed this end, had some issues with Opera, but they seem to have cleared up. #
  • @bonzrat Look kindly on the fools, for they may be Vortigaunts #
  • @qikipedia I call shenanigans on that last one. Only sources I can find are quack conspiracy sites and a spoof: http://tinyurl.com/bm83g6 #
  • Lead in bed, on laptop. Listening to occasional bursts of rain on the windows. How very Sunday. #
  • Rain now stopped up here, and now nice and sunny. Cold. But sunny. Have window open to air room even! #
  • @BuckSexington Wait? It’s Be throttling Steam speeds? I thought they were one of the good guys. #
  • @BuckSexington Ahh, okay then. #
  • @Dave_Gorman Descartes? in reply to Dave_Gorman #
  • Bugger. I was just thinking of heading out for a walk, maybe with my camera, and the rain starts again. in reply to BuckSexington #
  • I’m somewhat miffed by some of the major restrictions in Bethesda’s scripting engine. #
  • @Dave_Gorman For G I nominate Galileo Galilei. Not only is he a genius, but qualifies for the G category twice! #
  • @rockpapershot I’m torn, I like the idea, but know it will result me spending money I don’t have. #
  • Gah! Was checking if a blog comment was spam. It was. It linked me to porn. At work. Note to self. Do not check comments while at work. #
  • @cliffski Bah, I’m heading to Portugal soon, so shall catch the flipside of this effect. #
  • Either Facebook is down, or work has blocked it. #
  • @Dave_Gorman Mendel for M please, father of Genetics, and all done with peas in a glorified potting shed. Then ignored for years. #
  • @andyvglnt It appears that the Torygraph allows users to put in anything as the .html bit. It seems unlikely that this was the author’s … #
  • @BillyWilliwaw Disgusting, on the part of the Express. I saw @antonvowl ‘s comments on it earlier. #
  • Gah! I’m utterly despairing at the findings of the home office report ‘Violence Against Women.’ http://tinyurl.com/violencewomen #
  • Just had day of talks, now off to the pub, and then to Thai. #
