Notes

I don’t care what you say; Great Western Railway easily has the best livery on the network. If only the same could be said for its service and punctuality.

Watched After Life fully expecting to hate it but, aside from its chocolate-box depiction of England and overly saccharine moments, think it may be Gervais’ finest work since The Office. As vehicles for his opinions go, it’s surprisingly thoughtful and delightful.

Based on @tobefrankj’s glowing recommendation, went to see Us this evening. Proper good horror fodder, aspects of which brought to mind episodes of Inside No. 9 and The Shining, which can be no bad thing. Great soundtrack, too.

With his rare combination of design, development and leadership skills, if your team needs help building a digital product, grab hold of Jon before somebody else does!

Wasn’t able to cancel my gym membership, so spent an hour working out instead. The system works.

Always difficult to compare new stuff with the old and familiar, but having watched the first episode of This Time twice now and laughed throughout both viewings, I think it’s safe to say Alan’s back! Incompetent and insecure, out classed and out of touch. Ah-ha!

Still looking! Seeking an interaction design and/or front-end development role. Permanent or contract. Brighton, London or remote. Please share far and wide!

Still digesting the content from yesterday’s @naconf, but in the meantime, I wish to thank @colly and @hellogeri for creating a space in which important and worthwhile topics could be addressed. Was a pleasure to be just a little part of it all.

Made a little modification to my @naconf name badge so as to remove the logo of @shopify, a company that still maintains its support for far-right organisations like Breitbart. A Sharpie has its uses!

Every interview with a politician about Brexit:
Presenter: “So, what happens next?”
Politician: “Well, what happened was…”

Stan & Ollie is a love letter to two comedy maestros and their enduring friendship. With hilarious support from their wives (“two double acts for the price of one”), this funny and heartwarming film is not to be missed.

Remembering that one time in 2005 when I accidentally deleted a construction company’s website while moving some files around over FTP. Simpler times maybe, but not necessarily better times.
