Twitter seems broken and has been for about 20 mins.

Has the US nuked somebody?

Haha, cool. In a similar vein, gin never gives me a hangover (really cheap nasty ones do, but they don't count).

Geek-out with internet usage stats by region (measured in Petabytes): http://www.adverblog.com/2011/07/09/the-internet-in-2015/

I love huge numbers, but I also remember when a Megabyte was almost inconcievably large.

So, Google introduct 'verbatim search': http://insidesearch.blogspot.com/2011/11/search-using-your-terms-verbatim.html

It is a real shame it doesn't go far enough.

This morning I discovered the rather amazing 'question comma' which is a punctuation symbol combining the questionmark and the comma. I searched for a little more information with the search phrase ["question comma"].

Unfortunately this matched "question, comma", "question. Comma", "question: comma" and a lot more besides; all of which significantly change the meaning of the text.

Thinking that verbatim search might be the answer, I tried again with this fresh, new tool and it made no difference. It seems that punctuation, something that alters the meaning of text wildly, is not considered.

Pfft; thanks Google.

Is this irony or honesty on behalf of Nike? Or maybe bare-arsed laughing in our faces? Perhaps a bit of each.

If you like cocktails, and you like gin: http://www.ginmonkey.co.uk/2011/07/12/greenalls-gin-competition-2011/

If you don't like gin - don't read it.

I am suffering from a lack of gin-buddies on G+.

Always tonic. I haven't experimented much with soda water but I can imagine it lets the gin shine on its own; with Hendrick's I can imagine it letting the rose out a bit more. I will have to try that.

I don't have a gin buddies circle yet, but this is only for the lack of gin buddies. They are all on Twitter and don't typically work on the internet (so aren't in G+ yet). I will set one up though.

The negroni is not quite to my tastes. The Sloe Negroni on the other hand is divine: http://t.co/fQjvvF0 Divine? Maybe I had a few too many.
