Project #plywood is on! (After payday, goes without saying)Hmm. Do I even care that much?It would appear that the OSX 10.9.4 SMB ACL issue still hasn't been fixed. So binding our 10.9.X clients to AD probably isn't going to work.Whaaaat? Chocolate Lego? Where do I sign? http://t.co/yQMwergtbL

@virginmedia many times. Seems that the super hub isn't as super as they wish it was...Anyone got a recommendation for a good (cheap/used) N router to buy? @virginmedia provided "super hub" barely gets out the room. #wifi@elementary OS Freya beta1 has been released! Time to #scream and shout, and let it all out!

Shouldn't of had that half a cider last night. #gutrot #lightweightI kind of fell into this nerd life. I wanted to be an artist, but then I fixed someones mac, then I kept doing it. How do I fall out again?@AndrewWrites @arstechnica I occasionally power up the G4 Quicksilver to have a game of Dark Vengence or Sim City 2000.

Munki is running sweet now (my mistake). Now reposado is playing silly buggers with the 10.9 SUS catalogue. #macadmin@grahamgilbert Our cleaners won't come into our office anymore because of all our 'computer equipment'. We take a relaxed approach to tidy.

Oh munki. You work so well for ages then you decide that you're all broken and you can't find your catalogues, or your own repo #munki #pitamunki is buggering me about something rotten today.
Should I sack off the day job and go it alone? Gah. The decision is killing me.Today's office high: 31c. Outdoor temp. 29.5c. Just gone 9.30, still 27c. #hot #meltingKasabian's new long player is something rather wonderful. Go and buy it kids, with money.@Gordon_Keenan *quickly registers .scot to cash in later*.
A year older. A reminder of all the things I was going to do in the last 365 days that I haven't done.The lady behind the counter at the bank just sang happy birthday to me. It's a thing now, personal service... want to clear my OD as well?
The air is so think today it's like breathing soup. Oh for Aircon.
Suppose I ought to be thinking about all the things that await me when I go back... or carry on looking for new jobs. #toughcallAh, the end of a week off work. Best thing about that is... I've got another one starting, now!
Yes you can have a print. No, you cannot have it for free. #freeloaders
I know I can claim the mileage back, but I hate coming to the city centre. It's just a pain in the arse. #BristolThem: I need this fixing. Me: OK, I'll be down tomorrow morning. So I go to the place. There's no one here to let me in. Brilliant.

Retweeted by Grumpy Technician.Dear majority of YouTube product reviewers. A couple of things to note. 1. Speak clearly. 2. Buy a f***ing tripod. That is all.We got a new apprentice today. His name is Dave. He smells. The kind of smell that strips paint and curdles milk. #modernapprenticeshipsDespite my best intentions, I did not ride my bike to work today. #bikefailure #carwinRussia's ban on swearing in books, films, music, theatre and blogs comes into effect today.

I wish Apple would concede to the idea that microSD is a good thing to have in their products. (Just run out of space on my ipad.)
Virgin have just called my mobile to tell me I only have 5 days left to take them up on the incredible offer where I pay them more money!
@Gordon_Keenan ah yes, the going it alone ploy. So tempting, but perilous what with rent to pay blah etc.Current mood: locked in to a job I used to like, but changed so much it is no longer recognisable. http://t.co/fmavgJaQYiIs it the weekend yet?Great little series of films. With the network proxy would let me watch them. http://t.co/SEKvoxrx7W
Sitting on the balcony, sipping tea with my lovely. I wish I was doing that, not stuck in this office with a deadline and this heat.Dear whoever invented the popover advertisement for websites: I hope you fucking die.

Places to go, people to see lady behind the till having a long conversation with someone on her phone.“Mid-century-modern is so totes now”. I like 50′s design as much as the next guy, but this person needs to shut it.

Welcome @melmackay7 to the world of twatter.
@Gordon_Keenan Reality is a bitch, but it's the only one we've got, so get interested... this is it.@Gordon_Keenan Absolutely... it's important to let young people make mistakes, because they know everything, and won't be told anything.@Gordon_Keenan Sure is, and all these art students want to go out and make money from making art. I haven't the heart to tell them...@Gordon_Keenan I'll just tell them to abandon all ambition at the door of McDonalds, then hand them an application form. Here is your futureCan I just spend the rest of the afternoon sat in the sun? I don't want to do any more printing, or helping students realise their potential

Our Journey Begins: #TwoDots http://t.co/5iG31x0JmX http://t.co/UYGVfZrZiTBut the question remains, what is it exactly I want to do. You’d think that 35, I’d have some idea, but I don’t. #lacksdirectionI need a plan. 1. More take-home pay. 2. Less time working. 3. More creative freedom. 4. Better working conditions. Any ideas?
So here it is. Monday. And then there were two technicians left in this boat.
