    @D_Nye_Griffiths @tomcoates @benhammersley Ah. Just asked Mary if I'm inept or a psychopath: "Both."

    @D_Nye_Griffiths @tomcoates @benhammersley Phew. Maybe I am inept rather than a psychopath after all! But it's not for me to say.

    @D_Nye_Griffiths @tomcoates @benhammersley (I was talking about the Nice Guy article linked from usvsthem, not the strip.)

    @tomcoates @D_Nye_Griffiths @benhammersley Yes, not denying any of it.But *early* bits of article equally apply to some *actually* nice ppl.

    @tomcoates @D_Nye_Griffiths @benhammersley The early stages of being a Nice Guy seem a lot like being socially inept and shy. Er, I imagine.

    @tomcoates @D_Nye_Griffiths @benhammersley I didn't even know Nice Guys aren't nice guys. I'm so behind.

    Often, these days, imagining @samuelpepys defending his actions with “It was just a joke, a bit of fun! They enjoyed it! … Not all men!”

    @blech @mattb Oh, I only saw the 1970s date on the document, and didn’t realise there was a later one. Fair enough.

    @UPLIFTDesk Yes, very true. I need to find an affordable way to make my desk adaptable. Suggestions welcome! (In the UK.)

    The joy that a speedy and accurate answer to a Stack Overflow question brings. I’ll feel like I can achieve anything for several minutes.

    @genmon I bet David Icke has a theory!

    Woke up with aching feet and legs… might have to give this standing desk lark a break wile I’m at home all the time.

    @mattb Although "Approved for public release"… why did they need to steal it?

    Worth noting: Quora has no public API, no backup/export tools, blocks anonymous display of answers, and banned the Wayback Machine entirely.

    Quora has taken $151M in funding. How can they say this with a straight face?

    Thought I saw the woman from the comic shop in the Palace of Westminster, and thought "can't be, it's Wednesday".
