Appreciate that Lewis Hamilton was unhappy after the crash, but no need to throw his expensive steering wheel out of the pram... I mean car.

Why are tower defense games so addictive? Was doing well, but even on easy these levels are getting a little bit difficult now.

Penalties. This doesn't bode well for England. Fingers crossed.

Aaron Sorkin's The Newsroom starts on Sky Atlantic in July, looks good! Sadly, Girls doesn't air until September. Why? http://t.co/nhmKd5zX

Found: two new/unused 640GB laptop hard disks in my junk room. Excellent.

The downside to sleeping most of today is that I'm wide awake at 01:30. On the plus side I can secretly watch rubbish TV. Don't tell anyone.

Awesome, I've slept half my day away. I love having a lie in on annual leave. Wait, it's the weekend already? Where did my week go?! #garden

#WhenIWasAKid Netscape made the best web browser; websites used RealMedia, Java and FutureSplash; Google didn't exist; pop music was good.

Windows Phone 8 has "shared core" with Windows 8. Presumably WinRT. MS finally moving from 9x/NT/CE to single common kernel for all devices.

Extra official's only job is to spot the ball cross the line and he misses the ball cross the line! Why not use proper goal line technology?

Expected Microsoft to announce ARM based Windows 8 (RT) tablet. Wasn't expecting x86 with Surface for Windows 8 Pro! Possible iPad killer?
Monday 18th June, 2012 23:34
There's going to be an x86 version of Microsoft's Surface tablet! OMG this actually might not suck. When can I buy it?!?

Built another Windows version of Nmap yesterday from SVN. All the goodness of the 6.01 official release plus more! https://t.co/jLLZGJEg

Is anyone else's cat obsessed with staring at the kitchen sink? Or just mine? http://t.co/62w9g0jL

Cat let in, cat let out, cat let in, cat let out. Cat wants in. Me: "F**k off!". Cat goes off and sulks.

A Christian guy followed me on Twitter, but I don't say anything religious (except jokes). He's following 20K+ people. Blocked. Feel guilty.

Think I've fixed phone so I can make calls. Known issue in ICS for 2 months. Disabling Smart Reflex seems to have worked for last 24 hours.

Might try Windows Server 2012 RC tomorrow to see what it's like and determine if my lack of networking is a hardware issue. Hyper-V 3.0 :D
Saturday 9th June, 2012 20:56
Switched over a network card in my file server and now networking is broken. No adapters showing in Device Manager. Not very useful. Grr.

ICS 4.0.4 Signal Issue http://t.co/sX56y2lv

ICS 4.0.4 Signal Issue
Friday 8th June, 2012 16:59
I upgraded my phone over the air (OTA) from ICS 4.0.2 to 4.0.4 a while back, but ever since then I've had problems with phone calls and getting a mobile signal. Google appear to be well aware of this issue, but aren't really doing anything about it, marking it as "medium" priority. There are rumours that 4.0.5 has been delayed, but there's never been an announced date for the next minor version. I bought my phone to be a phone, not a small tablet over a wifi connection. It appears there's a reliable workaround (method 4), but it requires root access on your phone. I haven't bothered doing it for a few reasons (a general fear of change, wanting to try the official user experience, and mostly because unlocking your phone will wipe your data - I'm less concerned about the warranty), but I decided to finally backup, unlock and root my phone in the background this afternoon. The two hardest parts were being patient during part 6a of the manual driver installation and trying to remember my long and complex password.

Driving to work today. I <3 my car. So much nicer than taking the train.

Glad I'm not signed up to LinkedIn or eHarmony. Can't imagine attackers want the passwords to set people up on dates or find them new jobs.

Probably the best singer in the final 3, @leannemitch has won #thevoiceuk

If Bo tried to push herself like Danny is doing right now I'd be far more impressed. Respect to Danny in that duet. Only Danny. #thevoiceuk
