What really impresses me is that Erin McKean did such a great talk on linguistics and coding without even mentioning the Chomsky Hierarchy and its contribution to the understanding and design of programming languages ;)

A magic pairing of singer and song - does anyone do vulnerability as authentically and unsentimentally as Sinead O'Connor?

What a treat - the (remaining) Pythons in their "One down, five to go" tour at the 02 last night. The parrot's still dead, but the competitive corpsing was unexpected and entertaining - "'Have you been ad-libbing again?"

Thanks for this! I've just bought a Flex 2 14 i5 / 6Gb, and I'm wondering if you could recommend anyone who'd be willing to sell and install an upgrade to 16Gb, who is in or around South West London?

Really appreciate the thought that went into the explaining design pattern and rationale in the first part as much as the project itself. Any chance of this making it into a future version of Angular.js 1.x?

Stranded in Le Roeulx in the rain, glumly scrolling through a grim-looking list of hotels on the SatNav, La Ferme de l'Abbaye (The Abbey Farm) seemed like a ray of sunshine, if it was as good as it sounded. It was in fact even better. The building itself is indeed a 19th century abbey farmhouse surrounding a square courtyard. which has been lovingly converted as part of a ten-year project into a beautiful home and gites, with two spacious suites and one twin bed room, all en-suite. Madame is a really nice person, extremely helpful, who effortlessly took our seven-year old off to help feed the donkey and the horses. Coming in the middle of a three day car trip, l'Abbaye Ferme St. Feuillien turned our longest (and rainiest) day from an ordeal to a treat. We'll be back.
