  1. I don't often like to be negative online, but the recent customer service from @Halfords_uk has been absolutely appalling. I've had a case open for 6 months and keep getting fobbed off and then having to chase when they don't reply. Absolutely fuming
  2. Christmas tree obtained 🎄 #cycling #BetterByBike

  6. Managed to accidentally start a Tabs vs Spaces war in the @typo3 Slack community
  7. I find the Nest app for Google Home hubs so buggy. Maybe it's because I'm a cheap-ass and don't pay for Nest Aware...

  12. On the train headed to #ffconf - looking forward to seeing some old faces
  13. I've got an existing rack on the front of my bike, and I'm looking for a basket thing that attaches to it. bonus points if it's a waterproof bag that can be taken on and off. #cycling

  15. Looking for recommendations on domain/website/SSL monitoring tools. Bonus if it does page speed and/or server space too


  1. It’s 2018. Write code however you bloomin’ well want to. If it works for you (and it works) then it’s perfect 👍 Don’t let a medium article make you feel bad just because you’re not “trendy”

  2. I'm on the hunt for a back-end developer to come and work with me. We currently have a primarily LAMP stack - full job spec to come in the next few days, but if you are someone/know of someone then drop me a DM. Preferably Sussex based. Of course: No agencies.
  3. Overheared at a conference: I thought Kubernetes was a philosopher. #brightonruby @brightonruby
