@__leroux @adrianrossouw @NodeCPT This old thing only seems to do VGA... Hopefully @timkeller can sort it out?

via YoruFukurou in reply to __leroux

@NodeCPT @adrianrossouw You still need the Yola projector? DVI or VGA?

@darb If everybody gets treated as special, then nobody is special. Maybe you should read up on the definition of "special"?

@peterkleinct @gpreezy It's pretty good - large pieces, fresh sushi, although a tad more expensive than most. Try the sweet kiss.

@holman And ain't it the most beautiful sight when it's not rushing up towards you and gaining speed at 32 feet/s/s?

@singe And I just replied to that, but I think it got eaten by your blosxom?

@imsickofmaps Yes, absolutely they do. But not if it means having to deal with that sort of person.

via YoruFukurou in reply to imsickofmaps

@imsickofmaps Well, yes, why would we want to engage people that do nothing but talk about how "we" need to do stuff?

via YoruFukurou in reply to imsickofmaps

@imsickofmaps Typical @SiliconCape talking about needing to act, instead of acting. While the rest of us are busy actually, y'know, acting.

@chrischameleon It does have another meaning, if you google "santorum" (see )

@Jaco_van_Wyk And are you going to waste it like you wasted that one?

@heavychef Your last seven tweets are slightly ambiguous. Who, exactly, is speaking at the next HeavyChef, so we can be sure?

@__leroux it's just a meetup for beer and conversation (like yours) - why not do the nodejs thing there at codebridge?

via YoruFukurou in reply to __leroux

@__leroux Dude, nasty clash with the next Codebridge happy hour - why don't you guys come do your thing there?

I hate it when a form says "permanent residential address". I'm allowed to move later, right? What if my flat burns down?!

@pharkmillups and I'd organize an entire one-track developer-focused event to get awesome people like you guys out here again

@kelkulus Any sentence can be improved if you add "all over my face!" to the end of it, all over my face!

Pretty sure the guy at the next table with earphones in doesn't realize the sound is coming out of his laptop speakers. Cool tune, though.

@holman @atmos GET IN A CAB, MAN. (Glad you made it.)

@atmos @holman Fer chrissakes, are you home yet?

To the baby at the next table who won't stop screaming, and just cries and cries its heart out: I get you, man. Feel the same way sometimes.

warwickp @Hum4n Fine. I'll simplify. SA accent = log[AU / NZ] / sin[DE * NL] * tan[GB / BE] + floor[BE] * π + L - 0.25. Clearer?
