@mdales thanks :)
@ej I don’t think it’s the same people, but the idea is of course very similar. Apparently you can go listen to Longplayer in London, I need to go do that sometime. I guess I’ve got a while though :)
Oooh, type support for Ruby looks super interesting (and easy to integrate)! https://sorbet.org
@jonobennett oo no, I'll take a look and sort it out.
@ej welcome back!
Advantage of our office location is that I can hold 1:1s with my team at the #ExtinctionRebellion protest at Oxford Circus.
Did a teletype pairing session this morning with @huwdiprose, but we accidentally left it connected. So suddenly a few hours later he starts typing onto my screen, like my computer is haunted.
What a time to be alive.

@K_J_Holmes I love how versatile they continue to be even now. From thumping darkness like that there Prime Evil, to somewhere almost pop like Rush Hill Road off the latest album, to the wonderful ambient stuff on COW. One of the few bands where I can find something to fit every mood.
