@FatherBob @MarekRivers Thanks very much for that, Bob. Sometimes it does feel like we’re screaming into the void.

@deplorablejam @TurnbullMalcolm I can, but you’d be better off reading the many excellent works by experts rather than a few tweets from me.

@oliyoung Well I would pay to see that, yes.

@R_Chirgwin Nah, the follow stuff is all in order, or at least that’s what it displays. Hang on, I’ll toggle it.

Get a grip, @TurnbullMalcolm. Be a leader, not a knee-jerk poll-driven jerk. Oh wait. Yeah. Back soon, teaching a duck to play the trombone.

Well, except when @dobes does an @ at me. Workaround: @dobes could @ me in every tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

In fact Twitter has stopped showing me @dobes. I’ll work under the assumption that it’ll magically work again at some point.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@dobes I can see you when you @ me, but not otherwise. And you’re on no blocks or mutes. I am disappoint.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@dobes Heh. Let me look at the new settings for this web site.

For some reason TweetDeck has stopped showing me @dobes, which is kinda sweet.
