@paulwiggins There’s simply something weird about this machine. New logic board a couple weeks ago, but the problem has returned.

@paulwiggins Towards the upper end of the bell curve, perhaps, in terms of hours, but not all that heavy on usage. Not just then anyway.

Given the lost time tonight and the need to be on the 0606 train tomorrow, I’m moving the podcast yet again, sorry. Friday now. Sigh.

@andrewmaiden @mwyres So basically, how fucking dare you accuse me of advocating theft. How fucking dare you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to andrewmaiden

@andrewmaiden @mwyres Indeed, I’ve criticised entitled arsehats who reckon their “need” to see things NOW trumps their ned to pay.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to andrewmaiden

@andrewmaiden @mwyres That’s really funny. You’re hallucinating things I didn’t write and have never said.
