The GPL will be more important than Bitcoin (BTC) to the World’s future

A short one for today, but just to say, amidst all the hype, when all is said and done, it is my firm belief that when in future we look back to big things that shaped the world we will then inhabit, the GNU General Public License (GPL), will have had a bigger, more lasting, and more important impact than Bitcoin (BTC) #justsayin.

It will take as long as it takes

In a recent Slack chat with some fellow developers, there were certain tasks (like server moves encompassing upgrades to PHP 7, for example) which are not easy to specify in terms of how long the task may take.

Mrdalekjd methods for $$$

Don’t worry. I’ve not gone insane. Also, the comment spam you probably received wasn’t from me. I received it too. So whoever you are, Mrdalekjd, please stop comment spamming. It will not lead to $$$. It will just frustrate people a tiny fraction.

If you’re beginning your Tweet with “33/ …” you probably should have blogged it…

I was thinking about making this blog post in fewer than 140 characters in order to create some kind of pithy ironic platform abuse point, but no, I can’t be bothered. The luxury of not being curtailed by character limit is just too good to pass up.

It was acceptable in the 80s

In the wake of charges being raised in 2017 relating to the Hillsborough disaster of 1989, it may be time to revisit other awful things that happened in the 1980s that were covered up and swept under the carpet?

Happy Wednesday

It’s Wednesday, that time when you are only half way through the week. According to my statistics from the past decade, I get most emails and inbound calls on a Wednesday. So, happy Wednesday.

New header pic

The picture of the plant was nice, and all, but I decided to change the picture at the top of this website for something that was not quite so generic, so I went ultra personal, and google searched a picture of “the internet” as if such a thing exists, and collected one of the top results for a header pic.

Apologies if this caused a huge breach of copyright, but like everyone who rips something off the web and re-publishes it online: “no copyright intended (sic)”. Okay?

Anyway, the picture at the top is thereby explained. I live in the internet, and this is a picture of my home.
