Why not?!You can wash your hands, but how do you know the last person to touch that toilet door isn't a dirty bastard that didn't? Oh the humanity.If you surround yourself with negative people, be prepared to get dragged down to their level. It’s time for change.Xerox. Oh Xerox. Why do you mess me about so? I give you toner, you report none available. I replace your fuser, you report the error still.I love the way Ubuntu has the ability to work daily for weeks, then pop! Suddenly it's got a problem with the SD card reader and won't boot.
So @evernote for iPad doesn't work... Just crashes on launch, every time.. Delete reinstall. Same issue. Delete!
What exactly does all this council tax get spent on?@JACKfmBristol I regret buying another lotto ticket. I had it all (£2) then lost the lot.

Retweeted by Grumpy TechnicianAnd because I am a hopeless caffeine addict, that second cup has put me behind already.Ah. 9 hours in bed... feel a lot better this morning after a wipe out weekend. Shame I have to now go and do it all again. Bring the coffee.
@buffer will give that a try…@buffer you would be correct in the connecting an account...
It would seem that the @buffer iPad app isn't ready for any input quite yet. http://t.co/o1H645KXaf
Hello weekend. I have plans for you. Don’t look so downtrodden. They’re fun plans, involving making things. You’re looking better already
Found a lav at work that’s got wifi coverage. #littlethingsthatpleaseme #helpsyouthroughtheday
@AnotherEscape ah! Good. I thought I’d missed it. Happy days.What! Issue 4 of @AnotherEscape is out? How did I miss this news?I was surprised to hear Guns N Roses on @BBCr4today until I realised it was my radio playing silly buggers. Normality now resumed.What Made In Bristol TV is lacking... along with content is someone who knows how to record sound.Look! A 'smart' product that reduces the functinoality of your laptop. http://t.co/wklpf6FXcU
@ustwogames I'm not happy about paying for updates to something I have already paid for, 'tis all.@ustwogames correct. Clear saw sense when they charged for the iPad version of the iPhone app everyone already paid for.Good news! @ustwogames announce new monument valley levels next week. Bad news! You’ll have to pay for them. #alreadypaid
So the Moto G 2014 edition, isn't 4G, but the older model was? Eh? What?@IanAMartin but.... NOTHING!
Googles new material design seriously makes me think about jumping ship, but I am too tied into apple. No iMessage or FaceTime. Can't do it.I hate eBay liars that call a 1.8ghz dual core a 3.6ghz machine. It doesn't work like that, and you f*^%ing well know it."Systemd... it makes people go "weeee, my system booted in 5 sec!!!" and it makes developers go "f**k it broke this this this and this...Should have left for work by now. Running all the way... #anothercoffee
I'm a bit late in starting all my Yuletide projects. These things take time and materials I have yet to source.Hmm. I don't like it when my primary external drive says that it's unreadable. Do I want to Initialize, Eject of Ignore. I want it to WORK!
Mum and dad conversation. Fugazi.Oh my god… #parentsvisiting #sevendays
It's Friday night! I am going home for a cup of tea and a nice sit down. #exciting #yes #very #dontcare
Bacon sarnie update: @ArnolfiniArts canteen must surely be the best in the west. Bacon super crisp. Tomato relish fantastic. Hard to beat.
While it is possible to run #Yosemite with 2gb of RAM, unless you're a fan of waiting, don't.
Should have left for work by now, but I got delayed because of coffee. #coffee
Yosemite going on the primary MacBook... TRIM Enabler 3 best do it's thing and disable that whole kext signing nonsense.Well played that man. http://t.co/ioCk1xPIPQ
Retweeted by Grumpy Technician@Gordon_Keenan BASTARDS!@Gordon_Keenan Yeah... good isn't it? Just so they can sit on the profit for a few days and earn more money out of a refund.Yep. it's still in Alpha, and there's still quite a few things wrong with it, but #EvolveOS is great.So a shop can take money from my account in a few seconds, but a refund takes '2-3 working days'. Why? Why not refund it RIGHT NOW?
@Gordon_Keenan appears at the centre of the screen now, not a drop down…@Gordon_Keenan was spotlight disabled before? You might have to re-enable, and not wanting to sound like an utter plank, the search box 1/2@Gordon_Keenan don’t think so… not seen that before! Was this an upgrade or a clean install?@Gordon_Keenan but you’ll have to google that because I can’t remember it. It involves modifying launcd.@Gordon_Keenan you’ll have to elaborate on high mouse? Are you trying to turn spotlight off? There’s a terminal command to disable.@Gordon_Keenan and connecting to AD with SMB2, still broken. Weekend project is install on 3rd party SSD with TRIM. Should be fun.#yosemite. I like it. I thought I didn’t, but I like the new UI. Still full of crap I’ll not use but generally, it’s good.It's not the fist time Apple stole something and passed it off as an invention. Alfred. Spotlight. Go fish.We think our Yosemite v1.0 looks pretty good @YosemiteNPS #California http://t.co/TU4dFSzot1
Retweeted by Grumpy TechnicianI'm just going to hard reboot this f***ing thing in a moment. I've got a backup...@Gordon_Keenan How much RAM you got in the MBP's? When I was testing the Betas, the 2GB required minimum was absolutely NOT enough. 4GB fine@Gordon_Keenan But my macbook that's running Beta 6 is flying along... no rhyme/reason. Yours are probably just spotlight indexing.@Gordon_Keenan You've managed to install it? Wow. Lucky you. My iMac has had a black progress bar showing half-done for about an hour now.Woo. Grey screen. half and black progress bar. Looking slick there #YosemiteClassic "less than a minute remaining"... been there at least 20 mins now. #YosemiteProblemsInstalling 10.10 on my main machine. I know this is probably a dumb idea. Always wait for the X.1. ALWAYS. Do I learn? No.It seems that Apple finally fixed iCal (or Calendar as they call it now). Day view is more or less like it was 5 years ago. Winning!Reading #YosemiteProblems feed. Looks like I'm not missing out on anything #Leave_It_A_WeekSo, if you're on Beta 3, you need to install beta 4,5,6... then maybe I can have the full #Yosemite?And I wonder if they fixed the bug with TRIM, well, it's not a bug per se, but will break your day if you have an SSD and install #YosemiteSo Apple launched some things. I wonder if they fixed all of the broken things, like SMB2? #10.10

Retweeted by Grumpy TechnicianAbsolutely loving trying out the #EvolveOS alpha-4. Cannot wait for this thing to go deployment ready.Hmm. 10.10 Yosemite. If you've got less than 8GB RAM, don't bother. You need 8, but will be happy with 16.
Is it me, or is the Design Observer makeover something of a retrograde step?
Just as I was starting to feel better, I'm get dragged back into another forced marriage with the common cold.
It's quite nice being back in the darkroom, especially as I have my own personal stash of Seagul FB - although it's getting a little thin😮Student: It's a bit dark in here... Me: Yes, it is. That's why they call it a "darkroom"...Mandaponium. That's manic pandemonium.
I agreed with the experts 16 times out of 20 on the @FastCompany Design Sense Quiz. Can you beat me? http://t.co/MCTaW4VaR3

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician@paper_smiths @offscreenmag happy days. I'll be in for a copy when you're open. Missed your pop up shop, sadly.Man alive. iOS 8 on a iPad mini (1st gen) is going from a MacBook Pro with an SSD to a G3 PowerBook. Everything is just so bastard slow!
@FaberBooks @HUCKmagazine The LWL book is worth the RT alone, let alone all the rest.
@offscreenmag I hope @paper_smiths will be stocking your magazine, but they're not open yet. (hands sweating in anticipation though).
