  • Yay! My pombe tetrads pulled very nicely today. Which may not mean anything to any of my followers but makes me happy. #
  • @AmnestyUK I can see where some of the feelings come from. If it weren’t from Amnesty, I’d have been confused about its intent. #
  • Looking forward to Braid on the PC. Will be availible on Steam £9.99 #
  • @andyvglnt Ahh, don’t have an Xbox myself, or I’d have probably got it already. Find I don’t tend to replay single player games much anyway. #
  • Written to MS complaining about the Xbox live user banned for stating she was a Lesbian. Forgot to save my letter though. #
  • Err, rather I was complaining about her being banned, not complaining about her. Just to be clear. #
  • @smallmatryoshka they are hashtags, and make it easy to follow events etc. hashtags.org/ #
  • And now to bed. Its late, and I should have been in there a while ago. #
  • Ryan Air’s move to charge for the loo isn’t cost cutting/profiteering. It is advertising. The company wants to be seen as cheap and sleazy. #
  • #backgames Planescape Torment: The Nameless one becomes immortal and then walks around forgetting stuff. Oh wait?! #
  • @jonathancoulton It gives them a sense of superiority. They don’t get it; easier to pretend it’s stupid, than worry they miss something. #
  • Am I unusual in finding something desperately sad in the idea of a grey death of the universe? Entropy finishes its sums, and all is noise. #
  • Just completed Aquaria. Excellent, beautiful game. #
  • @BitBlot Thank you. Aquaria was absolutely magical, beautiful and yet strangely melancholy. An amazing game. #
  • Yay! http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/7912235.stm I’m so glad there is going to be a second series! #
  • Bloody awesome final episode of Being Human! Roll on series 2! #
  • @BenGoldacre What wonderful nonsense here http://tinyurl.com/blf7rh Clearly readers of Bad Science aren’t liberals. Does the Guardian know? #
  • @antonvowl I find checking is the masthead says Daily Mail/Express is a good first step. #
  • @bremxjones I bet its Games for Windows live attempting to mimic the 360’s RRoD. #
  • Why am I Tweeting when I should be working. I only logged on to print something out! #
  • Trying to bee all contentious, and just getting the fail whale as a result ☹. Will explain the lack of avatar shortly. ☺ #
  • Uh, I mean be. How on earth did that second e slip in? #
  • Hmm, seems that some twitter users spam on mention of certain phrases. Try tweetin RRoD for spam from @JamesonJans #
  • @BillyWilliwaw How exactly would that work? #

  • @PC_Gamer Excellent! You always manage to time your podcasts with when I have a long train journey coming up. #
  • About to head home, and tomorrow will head home-home. #
  • Ahhh. Westbro Baptists Church coming to protest in Basingstoke. They really are an obnoxious bunch of farts aren’t they? #
  • @andyvglnt This Friday apparently: http://tinyurl.com/beukp8 #
  • Okay, where have all my socks gone? I seem to have a load of pairless socks, even though they are all fairly new! #
  • Synching my MP3 player, which seems to have decided that ALL the files have changed. Grr! #
  • Bah! No Wifi on the train. I also left music player and headphones at home. #
  • Got home with little trouble. Tried to hop on to the WiFi in Birmingham, but couldn’t get a web connection. Was Ad-hoc though, odd. #
  • Just been to visit Nana. On the way back now, take away this evening #
  • Hmm, a friends wedding the week immediately after I ‘upgrade’ my undergrad degree. Do I have time to spare for both, or just the wedding? #
  • I wonder how many twitters you need to follow for tweets to come in as fast as you can read them. You could spend the entire day on twitter. #
  • @GOGcom I want a Good Old Game for free http://www.gog.com #GOGgiveaway #
  • @slummymummy The Tiger Who Came to Tea was my favourite book as a child. Got a pop-up anniversary edition from brother for last Christmas. #
  • Taste tested the new Walker’s flavours, Ready Salted won out, the rest were pretty grim, although Squirrel was passable. #
  • @thewllis I saw @charltonbrooker ‘s comments on the crisps, although can’t agree on the Onion Bajji, was grim. Not as bad as the breakfast. #
  • Oh, and I brought a mortar and pestle today, for those of you left hanging on Tuesday’s tweet! #
  • Read my first graphic novel, @neilhimself ‘s Sandman (Part 1). Not entirely convinced by the format, need to learn to ‘read’ the art. #
  • @andyvglnt I started with Sandman because I’m a @neilhimself fan. I felt it offered a good bridging point. I’ll look out for blankets though #
  • How silly. Board train to Edinburgh them change for another train to edinburgh. #
  • Bah! Standing. Glad I am not taking this one to Edinburgh. #
  • Help! Gmail is down. I hope the outage doesn’t last long! #
  • RT @bobbylocksville: http://twitpic.com/1nxvr – hahahah A rather quick response to gmail being down! V clever! #
  • @botherer Bah! I still can’t get mine. Lucky person. #
  • Our reliance on the internet is only going to increase with cloud computing. The loss of any major node could cause major problems. #
  • @Mikeystrong I could have been your first follower, but damn Downing Street had to get there first. #
  • @Jennymac22 Clearly 😉 #

  • Sent a fax today. Who still uses fax? Especially as I was faxing a form printed from their website. #
  • @JonStrickland For that joke, I am sorely tempted to stop following you. #
  • @VickieWire That’s great! Feminist makes a huge appearence in mine as well http://tinyurl.com/dx9dc5 but so does 22? #
  • @rockpapershot Features are good, but I also like the spontaneity. I quite like the feature series you do; unknown pleasures, space week. #
  • Bah! I just knocked a couple of sausages off the oven shelf on to the bottom of the oven. I then had to carefully fish them out. #
  • @stephenfry Your power to drive people to websites rivals that of slashdot and digg. Instead of slashdotted, sites are fryed (or fried). #
  • @leighalexander At least that one makes vague sense. #
  • Looks like very soon I might be dealing with lots of different chemicals that can kill or harm me in a number of different ways. What fun. #
  • @slummymummy1 Regularly, well, maybe not Anna Karenina, and I prefer Double Deckers to Curly Wurly’s but the feeling is the same. #
  • QI! Accompanied with salmon parcels and sauteed sprouts. #
  • Sad to hear of the end of the Home of the Underdogs. I hope @Fringer will find it a new host, or that someone else will resurrect it. #
  • Pleasantly shocked by the GSK news http://tinyurl.com/bqbrxy Lets hope it isn’t all empty promises made for publicity reasons. #
  • @VickieWire Wow, at least you know what diet to use should you ever find yourself needing to shift weight in the opposite direction. Cou … #
  • Trying to find figures about variation in computer game genre preference from country to country. #
  • @ladylikepunk @VickieWire Whoops, I misread that as glamour model and was mightily confused. #
  • Bah! Why is it that my S.pombe cells have decided to grow so slowly! #
  • Once again I have referred to Tudge, (http://tinyurl.com/tudge) probably my most regularly referenced text after finishing university. #
  • Hope the curry I’ve got turns out okay. Realised too late that our flat doesn’t have a mortar and pestle. Something I shall correct soon. #

  • Shocked that the Radio 1 presenter didn’t seem to know how long it took for the Earth to go round the sun. #
  • @stephenfry #frylift seems to have attracted 36 new articles on Google News. http://tinyurl.com/adp929 #
  • @stephenfry Oh, well it appears that Google’s news algorithm was off and it has grouped any mention of you and twitter. #
  • I wanted to find The GIMP at work, but couldn’t recall the address. I Googled carefully, ‘open source image editing.’ #
  • Bah! You’d think after three and a half years in Scotland I’d have seen some decent snow, but NOOOO, its still all down south! #
  • I can’t help but think that EVE online is the greatest game I’ll never play. The stories of politics and backstabbing are fantastic. #
  • @ValveSoftware I don’t know if you read @ replies, but can you give any indications about if PC users will have to pay for the DLC? #
  • @GuyNesher Sorry, hadn’t noticed your @JamesG. Yep, you were correct, and I managed to solve the problem. Thanks. #
  • Oh dear, I think I’m coming down with a cold, and seem to have a headache. #
  • Yup, I’m ill. Now to huddle up with soup and crusty bread feeling sorry for myself. #
  • I sincerely hope that the ‘referrer’ from an anal rape porn site is entirely fake, and that they don’t actually list me as an affiliate. #
  • @VickieWire Party rings are great anytime, although I don’t think I’ve ever eaten them for breakfast before. #
  • @VickieWire Ooooh! BACK page. I read front page, and was wondering if you were excited by velociraptors. Didn’t check the back page though. #
  • Oh dear, and now I’m reminded why I stopped reading the Independent in favour of the Guardian. http://tinyurl.com/deuf57 #
  • Although granted, I think that is the Indie’s equivalent of Cif. #
  • @ladylikepunk Ooh, now we’ve got a tag #dmhffh but doesn’t that miss out the all important n #
  • @ladylikepunk Oh, of course, its one word #
  • @ladylikepunk My Mum has said she feels like she’d be intruding if she joined fbook. She wasn’t impressed when I mentioned limited profiles. #
  • Still really enjoying Being Human. This is how you do intelligent, mature, supernatural drama. Torchwood has a hell of a lot to learn. #
  • @ashtreza Hello, and welcome to twitter. May you have many happy tweets. #
  • Gah! What is up with Opera! For the past few weeks its been crashing with alarming regularity! #
  • Only just noticed the snow when I headed off to bed. #
  • @rockpapershot Install the wordpress twittertools plugin and you can make little tweets whenever you write a new post. #
  • @bengoldacre You just got a heads up on the @rockpapershot podcast, a PC gaming blog in case you are unfamiliar. #
  • @slummymummy1 Owch! I wince for you (regarding the foot burning, not Natwest, with whom I have no experience.) #
  • Well I completely uninstalled Opera, cleared all profile folders, killed all background tasks, disabled plugins, and it still crashes! #
  • Next stept is upgrading video drivers, as the crashing began a few days after the last update. #
  • @LadyMcScamp Re: http://tinyurl.com/cyqhn5 Good article. Someone you know? #
  • @feliciaday Bah! Completely failed to realise series two of the guild had begun, and was still patiently watching my Youtube feed. #
  • @rockpapershot Toasted Cheese Sandwiches. And you have already committed the first act of twitter addiction, tweeting about food. #
