It was a fine morning in the virtual channel, but as you can see the elbows were out as I was passed by people who can actually swim.

I'm 8% in on my virtual channel crossing raising money for people with spinal injuries if you'd like to sponsor me.

+FazZ Khedoo​ & +Irena Savchenko​ Some of us are old enough to remember the Dreamcast classic. I can see you shaking your controllers to this. 
Space Channel 5, the classic Sega rhythm game about sassy TV reporter Ulala's cosmic battle against aliens alongside buddy Space Michael Jackson (yes), is returning with a demo to be shown at next...

Already played and punched the wall whilst testing it 💃 ...but yeah, it's great fun so far ...and the DreamCast was one of the greatest games consoles in history, that was far a head of its time 🎮

I hate to be that guy and I had little sympathy for those saying it before but, it's starting to feel like as soon as I start relying on a Google product or feature it gets removed or retired.

Since owning a Chromebook I quite liked the idea of useful apps that just appeared where I was working whatever the OS as long as I had chrome installed. Little things like my slack client (SlackDeck), a handy customisable text editor (Caret), Remote desktop and terminal emulation even.

So these will disappear on all but ChromeOS because not enough people are using. OK, I can see the writing on the wall here. With Android apps coming to ChromeOS it won't be long before the blog post will be "Not enough people are using web apps so we're pleased to announce your ChromeBook/Box is now exclusively Android".

Portability was good while it lasted.

It looks like it's time to start heavily divesting from dependence on Google. I can't afford to rely on Google technology when it could easily disappear tomorrow.

Like others who reviewed I was in the area looking for lunch and tried this place. Wasn't expecting much but was served well presented and tasty food. Was drawn by the VBites name as they make a good selection of vegan foods that regularly occupy my fridge. They have a small shop downstairs for grocery items. Not just their own.

Customer service handbook must have been lost in the post. One friendly staff member out of??? Basic food difficult to get wrong. Cheap and cheerful pub grub. Update: Recently revisited. Order wrong and food below average. Probably won't come back.
