Disqus can go fuck itself

November 7, 2013

Moment of rage here. For those unaware, Disqus is a commenting system you can add to your site instead of rolling your own. I used to be a fan – instead of creating a new account for every blog you wanted to comment on you could log in with an existing twitter/facebook/google account. And then […]

Reddit is just cats now

September 13, 2013

So i used to be a reddit fan. Great way to find new stuff. Except these last months it seems to front page has turned into a pet show-and-tell. Cut animals are all very well, bit hardly newsworthy.

I don’t know who designs cycle lanes. But one thing is for sure: they aren’t cyclists. This thought struck me as I waited on the “cycle path”, conveniently situated in the middle of a double lane of traffic, waiting for a gap in the roaring wall death coming from the two lanes either side of […]
