    @blech @tharpo I only read it a couple of months ago, to beat the film release.

    @blech Oh, this theatlantic.com/entertainment/… “It's like throwing a Lolita-themed children's birthday party.”

    @blech I read something about exactly that missing of the point the other day. No idea where though, as ever.

    @mildlydiverting @yoz @bobigail I missed that first time. Woooo!!!

    @antimega I think that’s Google’s new motto.

    @antimega Open a new tab. Bottom right, next to ‘Recently closed’.

    Chrome’s ‘Other Devices’ feature: brill. I forgot the URL for my Candy Box game, but left it in a tab on my sleeping work Mac. Chrome knows.

    Olia Lialina and Dragan Espenschied at the Photographers’ Gallery, on net.art, Geocities, etc was brief but quite good. All the pixels.

    @mortoni @samuelpepys The Great Fire will happen in 1666, or 2019. You’ll have to be patient!

    @Futtrup_Jan I’m not sure I need it right now, and am short of time, but thanks.

    @dotcode I’ve got something in my eye…

  • philgyford’s avatar

    Just realised the bank holiday threw me, and I’ve been struggling with Tuesday’s crossword instead of Monday’s. That’s my excuse.

    @phl Hadn’t seen that thanks. Tricky isn’t it: “fail fast” is fine, unless it screws everyone that committed to the failing thing.

    “our mission of saving and sharing the Web … the Clipboard service at clipboard.com will be discontinued.” What a bag of wank.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @alirayl @mathowie Thanks. Clipboard’s going up there as soon as I’ve added two other exciting transitions!

    @antimega WE’RE SO EXCITED! (thanks)
