  • Sat, 14:32: OK. @bing are being evil. Today's UK image is ice lollies. Lots of them.
  • Sat, 15:44: This Is The Night Train, Crossing Suburbia. Blurred, but I like the glow of the firebox in the cab.
  • Sat, 15:48: The Trainspotter. A large fox down by the railway lines in Putney.
  • Sat, 16:29: Side effect of FTTC: Internet Explorer's SmartScreen download verification tool takes longer to run than many downloads.
  • Sat, 16:32: Second milkshake of the day. Continuing the caffeine theme but dialling it down a notch: chai milkshake. Will be doing that one again!
  • Sat, 17:07: Spam of the day: apparently God is looking for somewhere to sponsor and host a return to Earth. Sorry God, I don't work with spammers.
  • Sat, 18:20: Have realised the one downside of upgrading my desktop PC to Window 8. My unbroken 1500+ game streak of Freecell is gone. Noooooo!
  • Sat, 18:33: Aging the Night Train
  • Sat, 19:00: A380 slowly descending into the setting sun. Gone, gone into the uttermost West London. Well, Hounslow, really. But no elves in Hounslow.
  • Sat, 20:04: Cooling off nicely up on the roof. Which means I'm actually getting some writing done.
  • Sat, 20:10: RT @SimonBramfitt: I wish I was on the Apple/Samsung jury. I'd award each side $1 and make both sides start using BB Playbooks
  • Sat, 20:45: All around, without any fuss, the LED lamps were turning on. (The Nine Billion Little Lights)
  • Sat, 20:46: Ah! So that's where the Windows To Go tooling was hidden...
  • Sat, 20:47: RT @timoreilly: Oh yes!!! RT @chrisbrogan: Dear every restaurant on the web: plain. Text. Period. Stop it with flash. Stop it with PDF. ...
  • Sat, 21:17: Making my first Windows To Go stick. Luckily I'd made a WIM in MDT 2012 Update 1.
  • Sat, 21:40: @MichaelGillett Ah well :-) Of course you could just do it as a DLL...
  • Sat, 21:43: Dear foxes. Stop it. We know what you're up to and it's getting noisy. Also you'll have a litter of cubs to deal with. No love. Me.
  • Sat, 21:45: Ouch. Just burnt myself on a USB 3.0 stick. That thing runs toasty!
  • Sat, 21:53: Excellent. My new Windows 8 RTM Windows To Go stick is booting. Not for the beginner, but easy enough once you have a WIM on a share.
  • Sat, 22:27: RT @marypcbuk: Why on earth doesn't the Windows Store put a flag on apps I already have installed when I'm browsing?
  • Sat, 22:30: @robertmclaws @kurtsh Yeah, I wrote that as a ZDNet post a while back. People don't seem to like using their keyboards :-)
  • Sat, 22:31: The Windows Store is officially a real app store. It has a Flashlight app.
  • Sat, 22:43: Ha! Installed Gleek on Windows 8. It has a Verge Mode option: "will inaccurately report errors from Twitter as problems with Microsoft".
  • Sat, 22:46: Actually Gleek is now my favourite Modern UI Twitter client. Lots of nice features, and one horrible UI issue.
