Final airport run of ScaleConf. After this, it's sleep for a week.
Hello to all my new followers from ScaleConf! I must warn you, though, I mostly tweet about toilet paper and weird stuff a waiter just said.
@CmdrDats we'll try get the videos up as soon as we can, but they all need editing and so on first
Man, gotta stop doing that.
@pharkmillups Huzzah! \o/
@warwickp Fly safe dude - was really great to meet you. Same excuse for the same trip next time!
@pharkmillups Ended up being the tamest evening of them all - thai food and bed. Off to penguins and coastal roads now! Fly safe...
And it looks like @pharkmillups made it to LHR intact - also excellent news.
@coda Glad you made it safe - feel better.
@nxsy Thanks to you at least a bit
@holman outside now
@MDCore Then who builds AWS, on what hardware? This stuff is important, at the bottom.
@imsickofmaps which is why I think it's important we had this talk
@sragh That was sb1's load and publishing's http accesses, taken this week. Every Yola engineer should be watching them :P
@coda Can we bring you your favourite dish for supper? I'm bummed.
@coda :( :( :(
@tom_bamford To be fair, uplink is underspecced because we could only pay for a smallish uplink. New conference, cheap tickets = low budget.
That awkward moment when you tweet from the conference you helped organized instead of as yourself.
@atmos left side. If you're a speaker. (So, yeah, right side.)
@peterpza I've got an iCable if you want - I'm sitting right at the front.
@atmos Yo yes. Where you sitting? I'm right at the front.
@holman are your plans sorted?
@holman yeah so you're probably about two minutes crawl from us. We'll make a plan later...
@holman yeah, I meant later - otherwise see you this evening (need a lift?)
@coda If you pay your bill with a note that has a buffalo on it, your tip should be at least a rhino, preferably an elephant. See? Simple!

What the heck is the difference between Continuous Deployment and Continuous Delivery? Words are starting to blend.
I see there is some scheduled downtime for the Kulula website tomorrow: https://t.co/SFGJVMof
@MicheChelle I could probably have done with the exercise. Ah well - I'll let you know how it goes!
@holman Fly safe. See you in a few days!
South Africans, a report-back: "The Gods Must Be Crazy 2" is also as heartbreakingly sweet and sentimentally funny as you remember. Rewatch!
Shouldn't the @SiliconCape account be clearly marked as a parody, in case people mistake them for a real organization?
@lefauxfrog In that case, you can also change "en.wikipedia" to "en.m.wikipedia" to get the unblocked mobile site...
obxlaw Quick, who is the current hereditary prince of the Hapsburgs?
South Africans: "The Gods Must Be Crazy" is still one of the most charming, innocent and pleasant comedies you can find. Nostalgia city.
smn Cape Town heat wave productivity tip: take a break, have lunch & go for a quick swim followed by a cold shower.
If there's one thing nicer than an ice cold beer on a hot summer eve, it's the guy you were supposed to have it with getting the venue right
@gussilber Don't let her get trapped in a structured degree. I did philosophy computers english maths history physics drama linguistics...
@gussilber Sorry I'm late. I registered for BA, did the courses I wanted, and got given a BSc at the end of it. Fulfilling.
@mattgemmell I just mean he should "vote" for your site because he thinks you're saying something worth discussing (even if he disagrees)
@mattgemmell re: Welch's post - isn't the subject matter that he writes about the thing your post supplies, and thus a reason to link back?
@singe Plus, it's not "prestige" they're after, it's the ability to work on amazing systems with clever people. Opportunity, not fame.
@singe Your "straw man" label is an ad hominem against my slippery slope. These geeks aren't worried about "the Situation" is all I meant.
@singe I'm sure nobody has the swart gevaar, or illusions of a first world utopia. It's just wanting to get in on the cool stuff overseas.
@singe I'm pretty sure you made up every single one of those reasons (speaking as one of/good friends with the group to which you refer)
@NateKettles Your tweets can't be public and private at the same time. You can't "have some degree of privacy" if you are public. Fin.
@NateKettles How have you lost any privacy by having a bot follow you? I really have no idea what you are worried will happen to you.
@NateKettles I'm still not seeing the problem. There are dodgy sites out there, but you don't have to click on them?
@NateKettles What would you say that that difference is? How are they "monitoring" your public info and misusing it?
@NateKettles Your tweets are public. Anyone can read them. Why are you worried that a spam-bot is "monitoring" something that's in the open?
