1. Jovian Salak: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> It's like cheese - all it takes is a couple of drops of lemon, and BOOM, milk becomes curds! Okay, maybe not best e.g...

    Jovian Salak “BOOM”? I would be concerned if milk made that noise when mixed with lemon!

  2. Just had my first truly nerve wracking driving experience. A car pulled out of a give way in front of me (they could clearly see me). I started to slow but realised I would hit them — sped up at the last moment and missed them by about 30cm.

  3. Sophie Dennis: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> no, but you do make some of us feel very old ...

    sophiedennis if it’s any comfort, most of my friends saw it years ago, I was a but late to the party for some reason :)

  4. John Nye: People that have implemented PubSubHubbub in their feeds, do you push just to the <a class="auto-link" href="http://pubsubhubbub.appspot.com">pubsubhubbub.appspot.com</a>? or others? Or use RSSCloud?

    john_nye I use the appspot server (for the moment — it doesn’t handle HTML)

  5. bruce lawson: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> would love to. Also have a &quot;real&quot; original folk/rock song that could use dulcimer

    bruce lawson cool, I don’t play much any more (mainly ) but would be nice to get it out again! I’ll drop you an email with some lyric ideas I had earlier :)

  6. This evening’s project: quoting UIs. Why they suck or for some reason do not exist, research into existing ones (found a nice github example) and silo equivalents.

  7. bruce lawson: <a class="h-x-username auto-link" href="https://twitter.com/BarnabyWalters">Barnaby Walters</a> what's a filk? ( damn autocorrect)

    bruce lawson a popular tune/song with new (often geeky) lyrics retrofitted, e.g. your “like a rounded corner”

  8. Stressful evening and now stressful morning — wondering round the house with a cushion like a flagellant trying to get burnt food smell out. Looking forward to a nice quiet afternoon instrument making.

  9. So, which is more annoying, POSSE permalinks w/ … if continued, in () if not, or Aral Balkan’s …tweet…continued…thing…? For comparison:

    Personally I find the …/() permalink/shortlink/short id pattern to be much more readable, especially when there are multiple long tweets happening at the same time, and they are mainly one or two words over Twitter’s limit. But it is more cluttered than the … technique.

  10. Sees google plus people talking about how great their new profiles are. Looks at profile (Tweetbot, iPad). Profile is same aneamic mobile version.

    You cannot anticipate context — but you can safely assume that if you tweet stuff, people are going to look at it on mobile devices.

  11. Why do XYZ reader applications mark things as read as soon as I select them? Just because I’ve glanced at them doesn’t mean I’ve read them. At least defer that judgement until I’ve scrolled to the bottom of the main content
