Pepys' Diary starting again

My nine-year-five-month project of posting Samuel Pepys’ diary entries, day-by-day, finished in May 2012. As 2013 gets going, the whole thing is rolling back to the start and beginning again.

  • 09:09am: RoboPepys already malfunctioning. Suspect operator error in the new software.
  • 09:11am: @LillyLyle If only he'd tweeted the correct things!
  • 09:57am: @iamdanw He didn't know the difference between .seconds and .total_seconds(), the bufflehead.
  • 11:35am: @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.
  • 11:44am: @pixellent @gwire It's true, you're not crazy for that reason!
  • 12:05pm: @alruii Have you endorsed him for anything yet?
  • 03:01pm: @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.
  • 05:00pm: @bobbiejohnson 1995 here too, at Bristol Evening Post. Scalpel, hot glue, black tape for borders and column separators.
  • 05:01pm: Having avoided Twitter over Christmas I've missed any links to good 2012 best-of music round-ups. Any suggestions?
  • 05:11pm: @willsh Thanks, I'll have a look!
  • 05:12pm: @monkchips @mattb I hope there is such a thing… A frequently-updating Spotify playlist of his favourites would be good. No pressure Matt :)
  • 05:14pm: @chrislunch So I hear.
  • 06:58pm: @migurski @bobbiejohnson Oh yes, hot wax, not hot glue. Pasting up a page with hot glue would get messy.
  • 07:03pm: @russelldavies You probably know it, but just in case, Billy Bragg’s ‘A13, Trunk Road To The Sea’:
