Anyone else noticed that the "Vote leave" campaign logo is basically the DPD logo?

I'd not actually seen the logo before. It does. Maybe they can also get lost.

The unintended consequences of the sugar tax.

Or, I guess maybe it was intended.

And the sugar free stuff is worse for you, right.

Went back onto Android N after the 2nd release of the developer preview. Seems to fix my performance issues I previously had. Will see how it goes.

Theory: there is a big feature planned for android N that hasn't been in any of the developer previews. They are going to announce it in the keynote tomorrow and it'll be in the new dev preview hours later. #io16

Will it be 'bluetooth volume is fixed'?

Is it so hard to get a good task manager? The more I see omnifocus, the more I want it. But I don't want iOS or osX at all. No task manager app is any good in every category.

Hmm. I'll have a look at that one. Looks OK.

Re the android dev, I'm going to give Xamarin a proper try shortly whjen I get a breathing space from clients and a task manager would be a good test project.

Another Space X launch to the ISS (and attempt to land the rocket) in 15 minutes. Excitement.

Remember, everyone. If the bankers tell you to do something, do the opposite. 
A list of 250 business leaders who support Britain leaving the EU is published by the Vote Leave campaign group.

Leaving the EU would be idiotic.

Very interesting idea which I am slowly coming round to. Bundling npm packages would solve many of NPMs issues. 
If you write JavaScript tools or libraries, you should bundle your code before publishing.

Summer appears to have crept up on me and I don't have my sunglasses or sun tan lotion. Stress.

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.
