    This is angry but, yes, unfortunately I agree with pretty much of all of it. We should look at the closing ceremony as epitomising what the opening ceremony, and the brilliant subsequent two weeks, were encouraging us to move away from. (via @blaine)

    @jar0n @tomtaylor I’ve got Internet Enterprise Edition. I don’t know if that’s better than 2007 or not.

    @jar0n @tomtaylor Have you got an Internet? I think my one’s out of date and I don’t know how to upgrade it without calling IT.

    @blaine @tomtaylor @beng (Not that it makes me comfortable enough to have given them money.)

    @blaine @tomtaylor @beng Seemed more like paying not donating to me too. But done like this because a soc net needs numbers to be viable.

    I was inspired to do ten extra lengths. I'm practically on the podium in Rio.
