I absolutely loathe everything that has transistors and runs code written by puny humans. #tf

+John Duffey But he appends #tf  to every single post.

Is he so untrustworthy that unless he does so, everyone will assume he's lying?

I was going to go with tittyfuck, but that made no sense. Neither did turtlefondler. 

I'm at a loss.

I don't know why I even bother arguing with certain people on the internet. Especially when they have no arguments for what they are arguing for. I respect people who stick to their guns, but only if they have reasons for it. #tf

In this whole "Farage did some dodgy stuff with EU expenses", no one is pointing out the hypocrisy of him accepting EU money. Would UKIP survive without the EU? #tf

That's not really what happened. They voted no, so they didn't sign it. Then they asked again later and voted yes. Between those 2 votes a massive amount had changed in Ireland (financial downturn etc). The swing was massive. It wasn't close either time.

As for the referendum. Fine, whatever. Let's have one. My problem is, the majority of Scotland is firmly behind the EU, and I'm not sure about the rest of the UK. So, yet again Scotland's vote wouldn't matter if the majority of English don't want the EU. Hence why I like the idea of smaller countries working together. Then we can be as much in the EU as we want (and we do want), and you guys can leave.

Dear American news sites. Stop saying "Glass is available to everyone today". It's not. Only Americans. #t

The part is not the whole. Working for our exchequer reminds me of that as well as how rich of a world there is beyond our borders.

I have the final, and undeniable argument as to why Scotland would be better off financially as an independent country. Have you not heard of the stereotype of us being tight? We don't spend anything if we don't need to.   #voteaye  :-P #tf

A Quaker is someone who can buy from a Jew, sell to a Scot, and still make a profit.

Snow still hasn't melted. So cold last night that ice started forming on standing water again.

I know it's only in York just now, and won't even be available till next year there, but at the rate BT are going, I'll be able to get BT-less fibre before I get BT fibre (despite being told it was being put into my cabinet 2 months ago). More competition is good. But it'll just be another service I can't get...  #tf  
If you're a broadband provider like Sky or TalkTalk, one of the only ways you can get around using BT's infrastructure is to build your own. That's

Story
Tagline
I'm a geek
Introduction
Well, I am a Computer Science student, living and brought up in Scotland. I have a keen interest in web design (although, design is probably not a good way to describe it, as I'm not arty in the slightest), as well as system administration, and I really love just typing a few letters and making loads of servers do my bidding.

I use Linux 24/7 (except when I use my laptop cause I keep forgetting to install Linux on it) and spend what little free time I have playing games and spending time with my beautiful fiancée :-)

I am also a Christian and just want to help people.
