Watching the @24ways live stats. Can’t you guys tell the time? It’s not midnight yet! :)
@maxvoltar Running out of space for archives. Redesign next year?
@anna_debenham It’s totally the best way to do it.
*deep breath* … okay.
@friendlymilk No, we’re not strictly anything. We work most commonly in PHP/MySQL, but tech is tech - we’ll use the best tool.
OH: “It’s more of a Big Red Apache Reconfiguration, really.”
Anyone know any HTML?
jimray Show me on the web page where the bad man said “above the fold”
I did a blog on the rug. http://allinthehead.com/…
Oops, forgot to blog for 182 days.
@maxvoltar Yikes! I’d better make a website for it!
@danwrong Best place to be. :)
@ded Well, that’s it. Surely there must be patterns for this? It’s not uncommon. Templates don’t look like the answer.
@KuraFire Keeps the wind off my ears.
@KuraFire Mine is for warmth.
Whoops, forgot my hat.
Bartering in web magazine articles. My favourite currency.
@alistair_uk Not in a long time - which version of Chrome?
@marcssanders no the Pages app hasn’t changed.
@nathanpitman Sounds like a mod_rewrite issue.
@cphilippsen Right, should be easy. Back up. Replace the files and run the /perch/update script.
To Perch 1.6! http://twitgoo.com/1r7xow
@spiky_simon Thanks for the write-up!
You know when you can’t remember the name of an app and you have to go hunting through everything in your Applications folder? Miro.
@owltastic BUT MORE IMPORTANTLY - is it still drinkable?
@kylefox I’d imagine going around with a clipboard taking pre-orders might prove unpopular. In hell.
My @24ways spreadsheet is lighting up like a Christmas tree. Appropriately.
@diveintomark Wouldn’t selling water in hell present a significant technical challenge? You’d need to prevent it evaporating.
@nathanpitman Yay! Glad you noticed.
@CraigGrannell Currently I use a Magic Mouse, but today my right arm is mostly useless to me due to sharp shooting pains.
Thanks for the Magic Trackpad opinions, folks. Seems it’s like Marmite - tastes of yeast and gets everywhere.
Anyone using a Magic Trackpad? Would you recommend it as a viable mouse alternative?
@ryancarson We’ve just been doing the same at Terminal 3 :)
To the airport!
@johnmcc We kick off on Wednesday - pushed enough for time as it is!
Snuggly cat is snuggly. http://twitgoo.com/1r5a50
@lloydi Just in and out for a meeting near the station, I’m afriad!
@peccadilloman it’s ok, we’re less boho, more hobo.
On my way to sunny Swindon.
@sil I stand corrected. My unreserved apologies.
@sil I’ve warned you about those Thai sex lines.
Making (what I hope is) the final commit on Perch 1.6.
@claypole Yes, it was very good.
@trovster Ah, just seen you email.
@trovster wassup? I have working hAtom2Atom in PHP if that’s any use.
@solobasssteve We do a dance in the office each time someone buys a Perch license. The rabbit sings, we dance.
@notxonhoj It seems to be actively trying to not be part of the web, however.
@PaulAdamDavis Right, so it’s obvious to the user what’s happened.
When a browser opens a link in a new window, I’d like to see the new window zoom out from the link. Like a reverse-genie. #notasexact
@sazzy Now you’re a whore AND a grass! ;) (wow, some people…)
7 days to go. Argh! Don’t panic!
@solobasssteve I don’t feel the need to strike or make life miserable for an employer, so I think I’m ok without a union.
@solobasssteve Nope, not me. Not sure what I’d need one for, or if there even is one.
@solobasssteve A union? Aren’t those for train drivers and miners?
Dear OpenStreetMap, ARRGGGH. Yours frustratedly, a regular web developer wanting to implement an open map.
In tonight’s performance, the part of Jimmy Wales will be played by a mime.
A set aside Finder window has a photo of @jenseninman peering up at me from the corner like the most helpful version of Clippy ever.
Now I think I hear @karenmcgrane too, so chances of it being The Big Web Show have increased.
Following my in-depth tour on the construction methods deployed in Windsor Castle, there’s literally no reason @beep can’t now build his own
@RellyAB ARE THEY WATER SLIDES?
@NeilCrosby It was the ‘an’ implying a pronunciation of ‘exmass’ that affronted me :)
@NeilCrosby “An xmas”? Really? Really?
has entered a Santa Fun Run. YOU HEARD.
@rnsloan Thanks, perfect.
@clivewalker Handy, thanks!
@jrodgers Yup, of course!
Updating a certain site to Textpattern 4.3.0
I may be working, but at least I have wine.
@hchamp Hey Heather. Wondering if you got my email on 16th? (Totally don’t mean to nag, sos.)
@danbenjamin Apple keep on breaking it, however. I had entire configurations trashed before I learned my lesson.
@danbenjamin Friends don’t let friends use the default OS X apache.
@Malarkey EarPLUGS at the ready.
@brucel Next up, Buck will be leaving a comment from beyond the grave. Great story.
@cphilippsen Nothing planned. It’s a small CMS for small sites - why do you need search? :)
These Dell laptops have actual CD trays. Like, from the past.
@zeldman IT’S A JOKE WE PLAY ON FOREIGNERS. HA-HA. REAL COFFEE IS UNDER THE [REDACTED].
Who in web design, development or production has inspired you most this year? #bestweb2010
Best twitter search ever. http://twitter.com/#!/se…
It’s a shame the use of “au contraire” has fallen out of fashion.
PHP on IIS is flippin weird.
My morning began with a mild panic attack as I couldn’t find the average response time stat in the new @tenderapp admin. Found it. Phew.
@StuRobson It’s by invitation only. But then authors submit (i.e. send in) their drafts.
… and the first @24ways 2010 article submission is in. This has to be a record.
“DJ KING ASSASSIN wants to be your friend on foursquare”… Something tells me that may not be a great idea.
@solobasssteve If I was playing more, I think I’d pick up a LittleMark III.
@solobasssteve It’s amazing, isn’t it? As it happens, if I’m after a bass amp, I don’t want it to do 100 other things. I just want an amp.
“Ashdown ABM - More than just a bass amp” - actually, I think you’ll find it is just a bass amp.
“It looks like a news site” is usability testing’s “it tastes like chicken”.
Team Macromedia! http://twitgoo.com/1qmv54
Freebie from when we did some work for FileMaker http://twitgoo.com/1qmv52
Do trophy makers have an award for Trophy Of The Year? If so, what do they win?
@maidbloke Some might say the best value ;) Let us know how it goes!
@lanyrd Have you thought of adding Call For Papers dates/info? Would enable speakers to see all confs currently seeking proposals.
I now class my occupation as removing cat hair from clothes with lint roller, reducing software development to a mere footnote.
Itch from The King Blues http://flic.kr/p/8T1jA6
@PhotoGlow New toys? I have a Yongnuo flash, and it’s been great.
@tommorris Ah, I see. Ok then ;)
@tommorris With comments in Disqus?
@tommorris Says he on Tumblr :)
@English50cent should really be called 31pence. Which, as it happens, is about the price of a Curly Wurly.
@PhotoGlow True :) At any web conference someone on stage is guaranteed to cite a choice paralysis study involving a shop with lots of jam.
Choosing pyjamas in Marks & Spencer is like trying to choose jam at a web conference.
Apparently, I’ve been on Twitter for four years as of today, fact fans.
It’s very difficult to position a background image you cannot see. #bloodydesignerators
Oh, I missed this. Textpattern 4.3 released. And just in time. http://textpattern.com/w…
@julien Just grow it long on one side then do a momb-over.
Parsing XML like it’s going out of fashion.
Email: “As someone who has rated Dreamweaver 4 Magic…” Yes, Amazon.com, I did rate that book. NINE YEARS AGO.
@bencc Charcoal seamless for me!
Hurrah, a delivery from @CalumetPhotoUK!
@nathanpitman No bahing from me!
@aral For some reason I can’t read “Ribbon Hero” without my brain autocompleting it to “Heron”.
@spiky_simon Uh oh, you’re onto me ;)
Strongly disagree: http://bit.ly/bKrAVt
@conanobrienswyf Cole’s Law is “Anything tastes good when covered in mayonnaise, even cabbage.”
@PathMobile This was with a bbPress forum. Has proved very effective for me.
@tenderapp AND screwed up its Average Response Time statistic.
@crouchingbadger No, it came in an email with the subject “Your Akismet API key”.
Last night I enabled Akismet. By this morning the results were so good I bought an API key. By this evening I’d forgotten we had a problem.
@toddowyoung Maybe a gun this time? :) (I kid, I kid)
@regularjen Or, you know, a Leica M9 ;)
@RellyAB Oo! oo! oo!
@regularjen I see fantastic results from Flickr contacts with the Lumix LX3.
@intranation Needed to sign up anyway, then saw your link while looking for instructions to fix my ubuntu VM again.
@intranation Certainly did!
Thinking about doing another 365 photo project next year. Somebody stop me.
@cphilippsen yes, using start and count. the only thing you don’t have is a total.
@KuraFire Weirdly, yes, I just found my SXSW 2006 program guide.
Buffing my bass.
(Totally a euphemism.)
@Roshorner That’s an awesome film. It its way.
Waxing my bass (not a euphemism). #fb
First gingerbread latte of the year. Nom.
Not sure if I’m the organ or the monkey grinder.
@thefremus No, just doing some browser testing. Like all reasonable human beings, I use a Mac :)
IE9 is great.
Step 1: Burn DVD of Mugabe TV documentary.
Step 2: Substitute into 13YO daughter’s ROBsessed boxset.
Step 3: Wait.
Ill laughing. http://damnyouautocorrec…
Does anyone actually like films with opening title sequences?
@drinkerthinker An ‘FAQ question’ being one question appearing in a collection of questions known as ‘an FAQ’.
HEY GUYS let’s write an FAQ question that is actually a statement and then start the answer with “that’s not a question”. IT’LL BE FUNNY.
Fonts.com pro tip: If you have a webfonts.fonts.com account, you can’t log in at fonts.com. Must log in at webfonts.fonts.com. Fonts.
Fonts.com has a nice technical implementation for webfonts. No JS requirement, and one stylesheet link per project, which doesn’t change.
@synx508 Hmm, so only if you’re redistributing it?
@synx508 Isn’t that just if you need support? It’s still open source, isn’t it? I’m confused. Licensing is confusing.
One day record companies will get their way and no one will ever see or hear their output. Then they’ll be happy.
Here’s a great idea! Spend a fortune creating a promotional video for your artist’s song and then disable embedding on YouTube! Genius!
TheDollSays The Tea Party sounds quite nice until you discover their tea tastes of homophobia and their fondant fancies are made of guns and rage.
@GeoffLloyd I loed once, but it was only for about 15 minutes so I don’t think it counts.
@monkeyphil I’m not sure how open it is to receiving direction.
I can see a fox.
@csswizardry Yes! Including a warming rack.
@bencc By my estimation it’ll take the hand of Mr Warburton himself.
It has 4 slots, you guys, 4 slots! #livingthedream
@AlunR I went for the 4 slot ‘lite’ - it’s two toasters in one. IN ONE!
Bought a Dualit toaster at the weekend. My life is SO glamorous.
@john_mcguirk Nothing to do with me.
@iestynx HTML gets stripped by default. You’ll have to add html=”true” to the field in the template. (or use the Code Block template)
@intranation Thanks. Also, happy birthday!
@intranation Could be useful for a global audience though, right? Else I’d need duplicate US and EU S3 buckets.
@intranation Just thinking about it as an option for reducing latency on 24ways assets. Currently using S3 for those.
Anyone got direct experience of CloudFront? How’s it working for you?
I think I just wrote the weirdest email evar. /cc @beep
@loulou We could lose you against a wall in the edgeofmyseat.com office.
