    @hondanhon @antimega He makes Ben Stiller look like a natural comedian. And with that, I must sleep. 'Night!

    @hondanhon @antimega He is the least funny, most show-offy thing in it. Well, nearly.

    @blech That’s certainly another data point.

    @suegyford Weird. The dog was about the only thing that made us smile!

    @matthewbloch :) It was a pleasant surprise.

    Surprised how very unfunny Anchorman is. So bad. Like children showing off, rather than acting. Is it an American taste? Do Brits like it?

    @chrislunch @tomcoates You’re supposed to write your own blog post in response, then send a Trackback to the original via 2004.

    @tomcoates I reckon you’re on track to pick up Best European Weblog again!

    @tomcoates Worth waiting all those years!

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @tomcoates You should totally blog about what you think of it.

    @pkqk Your Christmas present to me is way too generous! This ‘Call Me Maybe’ earworm is going to last me FOREVER!

    @joe_malia @tomstuart Have you just got the next gen equivalent of a single game home console like Astro Wars? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Astro_Wars

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @chrislunch Oh. Any other chores you need doing? Anything?

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @kevinmarks @holgate @dracos @Zoonie @tomcoates Sorry, fair enough.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @kevinmarks @holgate @dracos @Zoonie @tomcoates “push”? You’ve already lost most people.

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @0898CHEATHCO Yes

  • philgyford’s avatar

    @dracos @holgate @Zoonie @tomcoates “just” can hide many complexities for a non-coder :)

    @holgate @blech @Zoonie @tomcoates @indec Ghost is the latest thing isn’t it? But node tricky to deploy, relatively.Nothing beats php still.
