You: “there’s no such thing as a perfect film”


Lovely event tonight in London, with nice blend of audience interaction and a great talk on Lean Impact from Ann Mei Chang. Worth watching the stream:

SO glad I managed to get to the cinema to see Spiderverse before it stopped showing. Brilliant film, and such a visual treat.

Can anyone in my network do contracting on Wordpress internals onsite in London? Plugin dev, DB rationalisation, etc etc? Hit me up or recommend someone, I need a quote for some work. No agencies or offshoring companies please.

Just realised that most of my email backlog isn't even from 2018, but 2017. This has got a little out of hand.

New smart meters installed. What are the chances I can get data off this thing? No, didn’t think so. An API from the power company? No, didn’t think so either.

Send encrypted passwords, tokens, API keys direct from the command-line with our new release, Fluidkeys 0.3 💻 🤫

Given Australia's new (upcoming?) encryption legislation, how do we feel about Fastmail these days, given they're based there? Getting off Gmail in 2019, but where to?

I am so fucking angry.

Oil companies, for decades, have been DELIBERATELY ACCELERATING global warming in order to MELT THE FUCKING MELT THE POLAR ICE CAPS so they can extract oil from the Arctic more easily!

These people are murderers. They are destroying our planet and wiping out the human and non-human life for easy profit!

I’m gonna become rich by inventing a set of roasting tins that tesselate perfectly onto oven shelves.

In 1947 Bell Labs invented the transistor. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

As a parent

I want fewer Father Christmases around during December

So that my children don’t see him 12 times and have a pile of tat before Xmas has even arrived.
