Sweet! http://t.co/ZZQBSxZZWhI shit you not... A MacBook Pro I got fro FREE as it was "dead"... The oven trick actually works. http://t.co/z0kaDJYH18Irony is, the iPad I'm typing on is more powerful in computing terms than the MacBook Pro I'm trying to repair.Mmm. What's for dinner? MacBook Pro logic boards! 7 1/2 mins at gas mark 6, and it might revive this old dog. http://t.co/kQprWmBUXq

@Gordon_Keenan yeah, I like xubuntu. All the benefits of canonical, none of the unity bloat. No native proxy support though.@Gordon_Keenan Mm. I had a 3G USB that windows didn't have a clue what it was. Ubuntu knew right away. 3 mins later, internet. Tux FTW.If anything, we should be wishing that George W. Bush took painting up sooner.

Microsoft is still paying for its mistakes in the IE6-8 days in the form of extended legacy support for busted ass, non-standard webapps.

@TheOnlyWarhead probably a wiser thing to do.@TheOnlyWarhead Was worried I was about to start a NintenoSegaMacPC thing.@TheOnlyWarhead @AnthonyOram with its fixed lens... Some love it, I feel for £900 I'd like some flexibility. Just an opinion. No flamewars.@AnthonyOram Used one, liked it, quite restrictive, and frankly over-spendy.

@TimWrigley2 @GeorgeFergusonx Personally, I think it's fraud.@TimWrigley2 @GeorgeFergusonx Don't care who you voted for, but nobly 20% of Bristol turned out. That's not democratic in my estimation.@TimWrigley2 @GeorgeFergusonx Exactly. If you didn't want him, you should have voted. I assume you voted?@GeorgeFergusonx @TimWrigley2 Democratically elected, taking 35% of a 20% turnout. If you didn't want him, you should have voted NO.Then they get pissy when you drive close to them to overtake on this busy but narrow road...There is a sub species of cyclists that refuse to use the separated lane provided along a busy road, choosing instead to mingle with us cars
