Well, I finished watching Battlestar Galactica. I enjoyed it the whole way through, but thought that the "God did it" ending was a cop out.
The sounds of a brass band playing Misirlou are floating up to our office from Swanston Steet. Awesome.Google's Doctor Who doodle is rad
Apparently my son is "too shy" to brush his teeth. Uh huh.All the more incentive to forge ahead with my own git deployment strategy I guess!dploy.io is also expensive compared to http://t.co/zGBt2buftq, which is 6 quid for 10 projects. Such a shame.i.e. Beanstalk = $15/mo for 10 repos. Dploy = $29/mo for 10 servers. I use 2 servers per repo (staging/prod), so that's double the price.It's great that Beanstalk now have a service that can deploy from github & bitbucket, dploy.io, but it seems pricey compared to Beanstalk...

Won the princely sum of $7 betting on the Melbourne Cup. Considering a career as a professional gambler.

Designers who don't use a grid system, and just place content willy nilly wherever they feel it looks best: For the love of God, stop it.The Stack Overflow answer I always look at has 685 upvotes, so I guess I'm not alone!Every time I need to use jQuery to scroll to an element, I google it. I do this on a nearly weekly basis. I should have memorized it by now!
I finally watched the last episodes of Battlestar Galactica season 3. What a finale. On to season 4!@senongo I like your style.

@jefffis It seems you're right - even with an annual commitment Adobe charge for CC monthly. I'd prefer a single yearly charge, but oh well.A cheap present for your offspring: update your tablet's OS. After I updated our iPad to iOS 7 my son told me he "loves the new iPad"
@jefffis I signed up for an annual plan, so once my 30 day trial runs out Adobe get to take a lump sum soul withdrawal.I signed up for Adobe Creative Cloud.

Sigh.Spent 45 mins looking for car keys. Found them in my son's sport backpack, with his skipping rope. It's a long story.
@johnallsopp It seems appropriate that one of the demos uses the CSS class names "red" and "big", as if to emphasise how wrong it all is.To some people FTW is an acronym for For The Win.
