I gave up caffeine since I was off work. It led to 4 days of headaches and napping in the day. Feel fine now though. @burkeholland @code You’re made of stonger stuff than me. I cried at the good dinosaur. @burkeholland @kshep92 Web and software are always changing it can be tiresome, but at least it’s interesting... and grid is beautiful. @burkeholland And after that I felt really comfortable with it. @burkeholland It really is just a days worth of tinkering it’s straightforward. I spent about 4 hours with it re-la…

@bobbyllew Damn damn damn I missed it!

Retweeted by Martin BeebyAligning the kernel from wp7 to wp8 was neat engineering. As it transpired had no commercial benefit. Millions of work hours. @sethjuarez @Golnaz89 Try Garden Leave.

Controversial, but I preferred Cars 3 to lala land. @Wicko73 @annatkinney @mtaulty For me it’s more of an exclusive timber building. @triblondon You are a better man than me. I’d have just put chocolate.“I’m painting a picture of a sunny place. I’m painting a picture of Bristol”. I am not sure where he gets that from love a good trampoline park. @burkeholland Yes no where calls it soft whip. I meant soft serve... I made that up. In the uk we call it mr whippy. @ConnectedMJ It’s all I got @ConnectedMJ I worked with the director Edgar Wright on a project once for IE9 it was called Brandon Generator: @burkeholland May I suggest change the word crap to ‘soft whip’ it avoids offending anyone and also adds a new level to the joke.Do you remember when you joined Twitter? I do! #MyTwitterAnniversary

Retweeted by Martin Beeby @astroXP No MS is great. Excited about the opportunity in the new role @DannyT I like how I am an object and not a string. That was deep. @thebeebs MS.Employees.GoodPeople.RemoveAt(TheBeebs); #sadtimes Congrats on the new gig bud.
Retweeted by Martin Beeby @paul_v_m I suspect speak to @andspo @brucel The secret was... I never thought it was a beast at its heart. Just a dick sometimes.My leaving Evangelist tip: talk and show what makes your product great not what makes your competitors bad. @mtaulty Thanks mike. You have always been the best. If nothing else I will still follow your blog for stuff I can steal ;) @thebeebs heh! Seriously, good luck: you did a cracking job of being the friendly, human face of the Redmond Beast.
