Be as nice to the folks guesting on my channel while I'm off, OK? See y'all in September! ❄️Right! I'm away to the Arctic. Three weeks, no phone service, no internet. Please don't break the world while I'm gone. See you soon!

@leeky @pubstandards Not going to make it this month, sorry! Give everyone my best :)Some more detail on climbing up the wind turbine: @cr3 wrote it up for Buzzfeed! Includes vertigo-inducing photos. https://t.co/LSxgdeTSvr @seanski44 Ha, that's lovely! Thanks for the heads up :)New video! The problem with renewable energy, and how we're fixing it: https://t.co/zsggSqdDH7 (with many thanks to @SSE!)I wanted to write something on Citation Needed Live, but couldn't find the words. Gary has found them, and I agree. https://t.co/f7GLXn8HPr

@coldclimate I am incredibly jealous. Have a fantastic time. @London_Geekfest Found on a generic industrial estate in the Lea Valley. No idea why. (I tidied it up!) https://t.co/KCRkKhZrMOTo be clear, I'm demoing as part of a PR event, they were a-OK to take and post that. I just never heard the camera! https://t.co/iT8D5bi9ef @solace_aderyn I'm there as part of a PR event, so the press were pointing cameras constantly, part of the job!In all seriousness, public VR is being blindfolded in a room full of strangers. Rules and trust on touch, photos, permissions are IMPORTANT.I had no idea anyone was taking this photo and that's really weird. https://t.co/pQP7QEWLBfFound a @colin_furze! https://t.co/4OvknC9E4cThis morning is weird. @hannahwitton @thetomska are lovely. So are these people. https://t.co/gCnDgQM5wi

Someone left us a YouTube comment on stage! https://t.co/RSeDAHjhzwThe scene backstage in the green room with @jayforeman and the Tech Dif crew. Under ten minutes to go! #techdiflive https://t.co/WksW2e296KThe doors are opening. One hour to showtime. https://t.co/nxfSJDdwrzAccurate representation of @garybrannan right now. #techdiflive https://t.co/ULEjSD35uE @Aosher Thank you! @thixotropic Thanks! This will hopefully be shorter than that… @Vaanimaa No assigned seating; first-come first-served! @sheilamu Thank you :) @LovedayBrooke Thank you! @coldclimate Thanks :) @_lucasys Bit busy :)To answer many people: yes, it'll be recorded, but not streamed. It'll be put online if it's not a disaster! @bobbyllew Thanks very much!Setting up in @ConwayHall for today's #techdiflive. That's a big hall. We sold it out. Doors at 1, show at 2.

Thank you, everyone! Two benches in the bag.About to film Park Benches with @unnamedculprit. What should we talk about? Go! @mattround A chugger asked "are you friendly?" to me the other day and I only thought of "no, I'm Tom" five seconds too late.

@garybrannan @Beardy_Ed No Dubonnet. I'd say [checks Wikipedia to make sure they're still a safe punchline] the Krankies. Scottish, y'see. @TRJeffries @garybrannan Buzzfeed lets anyone write community posts, that's all I'm saying @ChickenGrylls Yep! Røde mic: https://t.co/J3xhGQVuUE To connect it to a regular recorder, not a phone: https://t.co/EGLgGJeJOB @BRE_Group Hello! Thought I'd ask one last time about filming with you, just in case an email's gone missing. No worries if not! @noneatnamesleft Should've sent that as a DM, sorry. :/ To add to David: sudoku was a hard slog with little payoff; Tribbles relied on GK.

@garybrannan "It's a home crowd." @NokkTheDwarf @testedcom Yes! @mashedkeyboard @youngrewired No idea, sorry!Got advice and a pep talk for Saturday's live show from @eggshaped and the QI Elves. They've done this before us… https://t.co/JUGSG7GeYO @LydiaMonnington 59 minutes! Poor set of puzzles this month, we thought. @DisguisedFairy Ah, that just made me remember the brilliant flying dream I had last night! Thank you :)

@Meowter_space @unnamedculprit I'm already safely home! Sorry — another time :) @felix_cohen All the people with that cloud-to-butt Chrome extension are about to be really confused. (Good luck with it, it'll be great!)Last night, @unnamedculprit and I took a camera and ran around @emfcamp. Sometimes literally: https://t.co/wj0w178XCH @ChickenGrylls @MakerFaireDERBY @mousefad Yes! Sorry I won't be able to properly film today, but hopefully this'll make up for it :)

Very, very best of luck for the future!This was Hebocon, it was brilliant, video soon, and I absolutely love this photo https://t.co/Yq7FgIAMABAttention @emfcamp: I am about to host the hell out of some Hebocon.

I am posting the night's adventures at @emfcamp on Snapchat: 👻 tomscottgo. So far it includes FIRE PONG. https://t.co/atupNdakYu @XBlueMinecraftX Ha, thanks :) @pinski1_ I've tipped over in one of those before going round a corner, probably best if I don't! @stecks @jonty Pretty much. Aim for the lights, no covering your pac."There are a lot of lasers on site. For safety, don't look into them." — @jonty opening @emfcamp https://t.co/VHJGuro3RA @whoisdanw @emfcamp Hi

@Simmehchan I'd start at the latest season and work back!Tumblr's official "how to turn off ads" FAQ is unexpectedly sarcastic. (from https://t.co/4ihWrdJJhc) https://t.co/LonoekmKZ9New video! The mushroom cloud over Britain: RAF Fauld and the Hanbury Crater: https://t.co/vh5DwMmdGP @spacedogprinces I've not heard the term enbyfriend before! That's lovely. :) @tomgrant95 @speakercone @WillObeney I have no idea why the news seem to have suddenly picked this up. Thanks for the heads up though!

@sam_cook @tef @vetraskr @DanielMorsing @jonty I’m up north with my folks, have fun!Filming with the @coptercamuk team today, with a proper drone rig. Tomorrow’s video should be good. https://t.co/4WZsKbCuGQ

Today’s Park Bench with @unnamedculprit has never-before-seen footage from 2010′s failed “Milton Keynes Pacman”: https://t.co/1J1tJTjQnf @JustAndrewYT Far too late. The form was really clear about how it worked, even if you weren't able to submit. Use it for your channel!I'm going to be hosting the first UK Hebocon (crap robot fight) at @emfcamp next weekend! It'll be... an experience. https://t.co/uKWfXK6eFz @JHHC91 It was straightened all through that series! Far too much hassle though :) @JustAndrewYT That's not how the guest videos work: the first stage was just sending an idea. Did you fill in the form while it was open?

@garybrannan No, just researching. First time at the Archives; they’re amazing. @garybrannan Damn right.Fascinating day at the @britishlibrary and @UkNatArchives, reading once-classified files. This’ll be a good video. https://t.co/nlTNpqZlIb

@ScootyRSN Not from here, but the links at https://t.co/Ob9WFEJweN will put the right cookie on your browser :) @cackhanded @coldclimate I actually had a line about "salt and sauce" but cut it as it wasn't strictly relevant! @BRE_Group No worries, thanks – sorry to pester! @juliakite So I reckon that might be because they overdilute it to save money. At the right concentration, it should taste almost identical. @CharlesYarnold They were really good. That probably doesn't help. :)
