8 Out Of 10 Cats + Countdown + kittens = best show ever!

Arsenal might be about to sell Gervinho and buy Suarez? The latter seems like a nasty person, but he's a much better player than the former.

Most musical comedians aren't funny.

Running the Android emulator inside a Fedora VM with low amounts of memory is not something I'd recommend. Performance is slooooooooow.

What are the odds that opting out of "default-on" gets you added to another list? Or am I being too cynical? ;)

Firefox (and other apps using NSS) finally supports TLS 1.2. Only 5 years after the standard was first defined.

Guy that needed some change for parking yesterday morning just gave it back to the generous woman today. Some people are nice after all! :)

Cavani presumably taken by PSG, Suarez and Higuain getting too expensive, potentially snubbed by Jovetic, will Arsenal target Lewandowski?!?

Holy crap Finn (from Glee) is dead! Cory Monteith was only 31! http://t.co/WZFZSfvG6k

Revenge Wears Prada
Wednesday 10th July, 2013 20:59
This is possibly the most disappointing book I have ever read. Not only was it poorly written, it also destroyed what could have been an interesting franchise around some interesting characters. It makes me wonder if The Devil Wears Prada was even written by the author. If it was, it had to be some kind of fluke.

Windows 8.1 Preview looks pretty good. Nice to have a Start button again; less keen on default search, but can customise it to be useful.

TLS 1.1, TLS 1.2, DNSSEC, IPv6 adoption is very low despite standards existing for years. I'd like to say that I'm surprised, but I'm not.

HTTP 2.0 will take at least a decade before most people use it. Even if clients support it (off by default?), majority of servers won't.

We can cope without TV5, if Kos or Per get injured/banned we can play Sagna as CB with Carl or Ramsey as RB. I'm joking, but it'll happen.

Twitter doesn't support animated gifs? :(

It must be summer, I'm outside and I'm not wearing a coat. I hope it lasts.

Person sat next to me on the train stinks. Really stinks. My poor nose!

I said earlier that Andy Murray was going to "do a Rocky" and come back to win... BUT I WAS JOKING! #comeonandy
Opera Now More Compatible
Tuesday 2nd July, 2013 19:04
The new version of Opera is now available, according to The Register. Apparently users care about being able to browse web pages:

"The vast majority of problems users had were with compatibility – with sites not following the standards and Opera following the standards. It’s now compatible with most sites – and we have the features most people want."

It's strange to see Opera abandon their principles... I mean change their stance on web standards.

Waited 8 mins to import an OVA file into VirtualBox. Import failed because .vbox file already exists. Why not check *before* writing .vmdk?!
