Balls. I can't play #Firewatch becuase my 2 year old Macbook Pro doesn't have enough video RAM. I've been waiting a year for this...I voted for @CaseyNeistat in the #ShortyAwards because they’re my favorite internet human https://t.co/JmPtIlBFdBNext update: 'Tweets we get paid most for to show you first". https://t.co/VZHiHI4JdMFinally... https://t.co/ZOlZnPAG8zI really don't understand the fascination with watching someone else play a video game. Surely, it's not a spectator sport?I want a new jacket, but my criteria list is long, and is met only by garments outside the acceptable price range. *gah*

I'm going to throw the fucking vinyl cutter out the window in a moment if it doesn't start cutting my shit correctly. Bastard!Plus Alto's Adventure is getting the android release this week. It's a good weak for beautiful games.Firewatch is finally here. I've been waiting what seems likes years. Maybe a year, maybe... eitherway... #FirewatchPart of me wants to try that Wileyfox device, but part of me knows its exactly the same hardware as what in using now. Tricky.

I'm having concrete ideas. As in moulding things out of concrete. It's cheap. I have the tools, the ideas. What could possibly go wrong?

One good reason I stopped using an iPhone, here's another. Fuck you Apple. Make things that don't break so easily. https://t.co/Xdsq03HTnyWhy doesn't watching netflix also hoover the flat and mop the kitchen floor.

Making the triumvirate of MySQL, Apache and PHPmyadmin work should be simple enough, but not here, with this firewall. Can't brew anything. @YPLAC This cock followed me half an inch from my bumper into the carpark, and abandoned it like a cunt. https://t.co/YluSvC9rZVHey @edfenergy I just went to pay my bill, but it's been set back to zero. I'm guessing no-one has been a malevolent benefactor and paid it.They're letting the ones who's eyes are too close together out into the public areas with scissors. This cannot be a good idea.

Yes, Chrome on iOS is now much faster, but at the expense of Do Not Track, cookie settings and enterprise features. Great job Google.There's a Sainsburys round the corner from me. Might have to dash out at lunchtime. Still not as good as £1 at Coop. https://t.co/eE7SAffiEv

I'd live in one of these. We'd have to get rid of a lot of crap, but it's it nice. C20 architecture is something to be treasured."My computer keeps telling me my disk is full... what does it mean?" Have a guess. Go on, just try and use that squishy head muscle.What happened? I had loads of time, so I drank half a cup of coffee, and now I've got 10 mins to shower, dress and get moving. Arse. #mondayThe Clangers: Knitted ham-mice in gladiator costumes make psych folk on the moon. Proof the real classics are un-focus-groupable.

@Gordon_Keenan https://t.co/DHIvAxlzXk listen and learn!What, might I ask, is a Savages, and why is it infecting every social media platform in an attempt to make people interested in it? #savagesHad a day off yesterday. Can't be bothered with it today. Must buy a lottery ticket and give myself a chance of exiting my current employ.

The automated announcements at my doctors just turned Genevieve in to Gunerrveee.But does it have a phono preamp built in? No?

Well this is fun. https://t.co/jNLuXctRncIf only Bristol traffic was more predictable. Just took me 20 mins to do what would usually take an hour. Very early for appointment now.So the rolled out RPZ in Spike Island. No one noticed, becuase everyone in Lower Clifton cycles, or float about on a cloud of superiority.I wonder where all the excess stock goes when a new one comes out, because you can't buy them after a new one hits the shelves. Hmm. Thinks.I guess if the iPhone 7 dumps the audio jack, they won't be adding headphones in the box. Those will become an optional magic purchase.

@Gordon_Keenan Samsung will probably have it on the Galaxy 8, or whatever they're on now. It will be out a week before the 7. @Gordon_Keenan That's coming on the 7s. The thought-to-text feature isn't really ready yet. @Gordon_Keenan 2mm thin. 4D touch (yes, you can touch time, its magical). No ports. Bezel free screen. No buttons.

Deal with it.Although finally getting my portfolio online is probably something I should do. I've been. Putting it on my to-do list for two years.2016 starts tomorrow. I best think of my resolutions that I will keep up with for a couple of weeks, then give up on.

622mb of 667. 3% battery. Which will finish first?Waiting... waiting... waiting for this download to finish. Man alive, my wifi is crap. It's time to step up the networking in my flat.I have also just gorged on too many christmas sweets, knocking all the good intention of the salad lunch out the fucking window.Hey, it's December 29th, and I've just put a jumper on. Must be winter or something! #winter #finally #comingWhat, there are 12 days of Christmas. So it's still Christmas now? So it's not over then? Oh man alive... No wonder everything's shut."There is no USB device connected". I wish to disagree with you, oh wise one.

@AmazonHelp I bought a kindle as a gift, so how do I gift a few ebooks to her account? Seems like I can't. Surely that's not the case?I think the next car will be a land rover. An old series 3 or defender. We used to have a S2A back at the homestead. It was great.
