    I had no idea there had been quite so many attempts to come up with gender-neutral pronouns for quite so long.

    A new swipey daily news format. Weirdly little amount of content and the navigation feels oddly fussy. (via @tomcritchlow)

    @deflatermouse @NOWTV @nowtvhelp Perfect! Brilliant, thanks!

    @Sofaville Luck rather than judgement! I hope it seems sensible to come and visit some day.

    @EricBurritt @NOWTV @nowtvhelp Yeah, it’s an annoying shame.

    For anyone interested enough to keep track, but not interested enough to read my weeknotes regularly and promptly, please note that while we've been here since January we have decided to stay and so now live in Herefordshire. gyford.com/phil/writing/2…

    @eliothill I can never remember this and have to check it biannually.

    @blech The NowTV app was odd - seemed OK first screenshot but next one shows a dialog (with a link to a non-existent help page) and you have to quit the app. BUT turns out even the first screenshot results in an image as if the app wasn't there - it shows app/desktop behind just fine.

    @monzo I need to change my postal address but the one generated using my postcode in the iPhone app isn't quite right. I can't see a way to fix it, or to ask for help within the app.

    I'm trying to get some screenshots of the crazy wall in 'Perry Mason' S1 E8, around 29 minutes in, for crazywalls.tumblr.com but @NOWTV's Mac app doesn't appear in screenshots, like a digital vampire. Infuriating! Contributions welcome, no rush. cc @nowtvhelp
