Trying out Firefox after using Google Chrome for the last couple of years. I forgot how good it was.
Windows is treading on very, very thin ice on my home computer. Spyware has appreared out of nowhere. Considering a reformat.
@mikestenger otherwise known as the Tuesday curse.
I love Windows Update... "No Important Updates Found"... (clicks "Check for Updates")... "144 Important Updates Found"
I'm thinking Path would be pretty damn good if I knew anybody using it :)
I have never seen a reaction on the internet like this before - rest in peace Robin Williams - you were loved by many.
I have never seen a reaction on the internet to the passing of Robin Williams - it's pretty humbling.

Finally off to see Guardians of the Galaxy - after somehow managing to avoid any spoilers, or even the trailer! https://twitter.com/jonbeck...
Things I learned this week - unless you have connections in the media, or serious money for marketing, Kickstarter doesn't work.

@EwenRankin excellent photo of the ISS though! My other half spotted it zooming overhead a while ago, and I said "nah - that's an aeroplane"
Sucked into watching Community trailers - https://t.co/4mapcJrPXQ - still funny the 20th time :)
@EwenRankin The trailer of the first episode is on YouTube - https://t.co/R0jCaQe2Ul
@EwenRankin how do I get a shout out about http://pluggedout.org on one of the BTN shows then ? :)
@EwenRankin I'm thinking that already (1 episode in) - I still think the most funny/original TV show out of the US in years is Community
@hexenhr1 if it works I will buy a new laptop at least - and a server, and hosting. If not, at least it might attract some new members
Just started watching "Curb Your Enthusiasm". I never watched Seinfeld. Not sure what to make of it so far.
@hexenhr1 I think it was the IBM guys in "The Mythical Man Month" that said you should always throw away the first version :)
Interesting - somebody just added me to a Twitter List as a "Tech Journalist". I'm struggling to figure that one out...
p.s. sitting at home trying not to do anything because you have a chest infection and moving causes you to cough like a lunatic is hard.
I finally pulled the trigger on the PluggedOut Kickstarter - if you want to get behind it, visit https://t.co/nifcmmZ5Y5
Just tried out http://www.justunfollow.com/ - and decimated the number of people I'm following on Twitter. I like :)
(p.s. I just realised I haven't posted anything on Twitter for WHOLE DAYS)
Oh crap... Kerbal Space Program has the update with contracts, and money, and stuff... goodbye life.
