Links

  1. Dandelion Radio | Mixcloud

    Ooh, Dandelion are putting their previous month’s shows on Mixcloud. Brill. Rocker’s my favourite, but lots of good stuff generally.

  2. AZPianoNews: REVIEW - Classenti CDP1, CDP2, CDP3, GR1 Digital Pianos From China - Not Recommended - Digital Piano Reviews

    Says that the Classenti and Broadway digital piano brands, promoted by the afore-linked UK Pianos, are owned by and exclusive to the man behind UK Pianos, and that they’re not that good, although the writer hasn’t played them… Intriguing.

  3. The Amen break: Just a sample | The Economist

    Finally got round to reading/listening to all of this, 15 months after everyone else linked to it. I love this stuff, because I’m so oblivious to the details of samples normally.

  4. Test-Driven Django Tutorial

    Quite verbose tutorial, in a good way. Assumes very little Django knowledge, which is great/tedious depending on your own level.

    @plsj Those reviews put me off seeing it. Btw, the BBC have just started showing Parks and Recreation!

    @aden_76 You get connected to a new, random fellow queuer every 30 seconds, so you can share tutting and sighing and small talk.

    @luke_duke @wonderlandblog @joroach Google Glass broadcasts of live haircuts! One day…

    @aden_76 The music would also have to somehow get more desperate.

    After the tenth minute of being on hold I began wondering if the recorded voice wasn’t entirely honest about its sorriness for the delay.

    @kassschmitt @csi_popmusic You started it!

    @txd Blimey, really? Thanks! Let me know anything I should do. And, I should buy you more than a drink!

    @csi_popmusic @kassschmitt And the former are as bad as the women who feel entitled to leave the seat down!

    @txd Not really… I thought cloudview was moved, but then I still need to move things? I was/am confused! Not sure how/when.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @txd OK… still waiting for my support ticket of 2013-01-07 asking about what I’m supposed to do to be answered! :)

    Realising how many things on my @txd server try to connect to other servers, now they’re all complaining. Small pieces, not at all joined.

    @LimaMikeGolf I don’t think I’d heard of “weblogs” as a thing then. But did read blog-like sites like macintouch.com

    @LimaMikeGolf I thought it’d be interesting for the mailing list. I used Userland Frontier to build the first version en.wikipedia.org/wiki/UserLand_…

    @LimaMikeGolf @bmagnanti I think @RobinGrant’s perfect.co.uk started before Haddock Directory, not sure when web.archive.org/web/1997061310…

    @LimaMikeGolf @bmagnanti Haddock Directory started sometime in 1997, with the older links backfilled.
