1. Jovian Salak: @BarnabyWalters such nice weather! UK is predictably bad...

    Jovian Salak the weather here is predictably unpredictable :) It was gorgeous when I took that two days ago, since then it has been freezing, murky and (in the last few hours) snowing a lot. All good fun!

  2. John Nye: @BarnabyWalters Shhhhhh, don't tell anyone.

    john_nye not sure I’ll be able to get one shipped to Iceland anyway (for a sensible price at least, plus import duty). I wonder if they’d donate one to your testing lab?

  3. Jovian Salak: @BarnabyWalters Well where is it?! Lets see it! (coincidentally @catwall95 showed me a great #panorama of Dartmoor today!)

    Jovian Salak I’ll see if I can get it up this evening. Got lots of emails, code and postcards to sort as well though!

  4. Jovian Salak: @BarnabyWalters If I have time, I'll buy my domain from http://t.co/BV6k81mo6r tonight. Any specific 'package'? Then we can begin...

    Jovian Salak just go for the cheapest one. Looking forward to seeing your photos! I did a nice panorama from the office roof a couple of days ago, and have made a fancy way of showing it on the web

  5. Jovian Salak: @BarnabyWalters Not sure they're working you hard enough in Iceland! (Maybe they should pay you in coffee!)

    Jovian Salak not working me hard enough? Why’dyou say that? :)

    Sounds like you’re seeing some bloodthirsty stuff at the “festival” :/

  6. Zachary Kain ☯: @BarnabyWalters I use <pre> for poetry, since it is pre formatted text. I don't know if I'd ever warrant using a <br>

    Zachary Kain as pre retains all whitespace it might be dangerous to use it for poetry — e.g. preserved indentation, lack of minification ability. In poetry’s case, br is more semantic — it represents the presence of a line break. Also you don’t get wrapping (although you may want it).

    As usual, the “read the spec, make up your own mind, be willing to change it” rule applies :)

  7. Laura Kalbag: And <br/> tags used instead of <label>s in forms makes me downright stabby.

    Laura Kalbag my current pet peeve is a h1, then a h2 directly below it which is not a header, just a paragraph the author wanted to make look bigger (or a subheader, like bootstrap does with the downright weird h1 -> small). I saw it once a while ago, now I’m seeing it everywhere :/

  8. Kyle Weems: I dislike having to deal with kludgy browsers too. But I also know my clients aren't interested in turning away many of their customers.

    cssquirrel Zepto is nice for browser extensions, where the browser will always be modern and capable

  9. Robin Andrews that’s the idea :) Use it for sarcasm, jokes, logging, diary, short conversations, political statements, quotes, links… just not conversation :) IRC/XMPP is better for that
