It seems I never did write an . How typically rude.

I'm _aD. , , . Only sorry about the poet bit. I fix computers, perpetuate , enjoy , love astronomy, play video and suffer an unrequited love affair with the . I'm British. Sorry about Brexit.

I keep an online journal at which has, in recent years, ended up being 95% .

It's 3am and I cannot correctly type "raisine" until after the third attempt. It's all part of the raisen conspiracy.

Customer: can you fix this thing on my computer/device/Internets/dog pix uploader?
aD: Sure!
Self->aD: How?
aD->Self: Sssh, just take the wheel, we'll figure it out as we go along.

Ah, a profusion of @byttyrs 's hott calves are causing the crash. With great power comes great responsibility.

Alright, own up, which one of you has changed your avatar such that it crashes Tusky every time I open it with a data connection available? You won't stop me this easily.

"And you could, like, connect, withdraw, adapt [...]" trying not to eavesdrop but it sounds like they played Tongo during lunch break

"check snapshots, trees and blobs"

Signs that your computer is playing Slime Farmer instead of working as it has been ordered.

Shitposting until both of a) my connection stops flaking out b) customer's connection stops flaking out c) customer's server isn't as slow as snail syrup.

Holy shit, TeamViewer have literally invented the device for stabbing a person's face with a fork via the Internet! Sign me up!

Take a table at the pub and place my jacket on the back of the opposing chair to establish dominance

@Louisa from flappers to bodysocksers, classy days. Laughing at my screen like a loon :-D

If anyone's not listening to Weaponized Language podcast, you should be!

So your message is anonymous, except to Google who know which page you were on at what time and day, from what web browser and device, your IP address and likely your Google cookie, which uniquely identifies you. And all this whether you send a message or not, so not only is the message not anonymous: neither is your viewing of the page.
