    @migurski @bobbiejohnson Oh yes, hot wax, not hot glue. Pasting up a page with hot glue would get messy.

    @monkchips @mattb I hope there is such a thing… A frequently-updating Spotify playlist of his favourites would be good. No pressure Matt :)

    @willsh Thanks, I'll have a look!

    Having avoided Twitter over Christmas I've missed any links to good 2012 best-of music round-ups. Any suggestions?

    @bobbiejohnson 1995 here too, at Bristol Evening Post. Scalpel, hot glue, black tape for borders and column separators.

    @gwire I didn't read about Big Fat Quiz in the newspapers, so thanks for letting me know there's some joke I should be outraged about.

    @alruii Have you endorsed him for anything yet?

    @pixellent @gwire It's true, you're not crazy for that reason!

    @gwire I was thinking that the other day, when pondering an iPad Mini as an iPhone replacement. Can't quite ditch the "phone" part yet.

    @iamdanw He didn't know the difference between .seconds and .total_seconds(), the bufflehead.

    @LillyLyle If only he'd tweeted the correct things!

    RoboPepys already malfunctioning. Suspect operator error in the new software.
