    I seem to remember tweets to the effect of "Wow, 'Luther', blimey!" on the penultimate episode's broadcast. Now I know why. Blimey.

    Whenever I see the grassy green hill on the Windows desktop I want to see Stewart Lee chugging across it in his comedy vehicle.

    Are there any programming languages that require the use of “curly quotes” rather than "straight ones"? That would be good.

    To be fair, I'm also swearing at Facebook Connect, so that feels like more modern, with it and generally up-to-date cursing.

    I can't believe it's 2010, the future, and I'm still swearing at Internet Explorer 6.

    @wonderlandblog I was wondering about switching to Orange because O2 are so flaky.
