  • 09:41am: Start the weekend early with the 12” Disco Fever Mix of De La Soul’s “Saturdays”, from here: (Also: TWENTY YEARS OLD!)
  • 10:58am: @FinalBullet Just recite some lines from ‘Red Dwarf’. It’ll be fine.
  • 11:36am: @antimega Some reviews of Chiswell Street Dining Rooms here:
  • 02:50pm: Google Books’ “Snippet view” should be called “Worthless Result There’s No Point Clicking On Because There’s Nothing Here view”.
  • 03:21pm: @revdancatt Nice. I tend toward alphabetical but I bet yours looks prettier.
  • 03:23pm: @revdancatt I probably use the wrong ones, but then I haven’t been doing python long. You sound very good at it.
  • 05:01pm: If you’re into such things, I just wrote about hyphenating text on the web, because I couldn’t find a decent summary:
  • 10:14pm: Watching the Autotune Channel. Or "4Music".
  • 10:16pm: @paulpod Infuriating isn't it. I've lost count of how many times I've tweaked the same bit of WordPress CSS and then it's overwritten later.
  • 10:20pm: @janetgyford Click 'Profile' at the top, then there's a link for 'Favorites'. It makes no sense!
