I didn’t think I could possibly care less than I do about the Harry royal wedding, but it turns out that there is a whole level of caring less, and that is what I feel about the pages of news stories on the BBC news website as to whether his fiancées dad is going to the wedding.

Just bizarre.


TV coverage starts at 9 fucking 15 on Saturday. Prepare for desperate reporters talking to moronic members of the public who’ve been lining the streets since the middle of April, in an effort to avoid having any dead air throughout the whole day.

I hope the happy couple have a lovely day, but i really don’t want to know anything about it.

I actually only found out that Harry's wedding was this weekend on Sunday.

Also, only found out today that Will's recent spawn was number three! Had no idea of the existence of the middle one. Charlotte, apparently.

We're now almost completely certain that Daub is laying twice a day, which would be the source of soft shells and random eggs appearing in the run (in addition the 3 eggs in the best boxes).

How do I tell a new client that their website is a massive shitstorm, without badmouthing the previous developer (who is a nice guy and has put lots of work my way)?

"It's self-evident that your website experienced a very challenging birth which I can only imagine is attributable to a client full of terrible ideas and an entirely misplaced belief in their own expertise, and wouldn't know UX if it crawled up their backside and shat tooltips out of their mouth. I'm not surprised the previous developer did one. That'll be 20 grand please."

"Christ, this is a shitstorm!"

Or, more sensibly, blame it on something like "current fashions".

Can we see it?

You wouldn't see much - visually it looks fine. The code is just a mess. It's the same one that inspired this tweet:

I don't want them to think "oh new dev is trying to take us for a ride saying it's shit" but I also don't want to spend 4x the time doing everything because it's a hot mess, because that isn't cost effective and makes me look bad. Caught between a rock and a hard place. I may have used the words "interestingly coded" in my last email.

Friend at work lended me his copy of Yakuza 0.

First of the Yakuza games I've played and it's absolutely bonkers. Anyone else played it?

HUGE Bonus points for having playable arcades within the game that include Space Harrier :luv: , Outrun and (I've not found them yet) Super Hang On & Fantasy Zone.

I've played demos of various of them and always had a good time but never got round to picking up any of the full games.

What pisses me off about printing is tryng to print photographs the right size to fit off-the-shelf photo frames. Not that I do it a lot, but when I do it drives me bonkers. I have to print black and white rest prints on plain paper to get the sizes right before wasting coloured ink on photo paper.

I used to have this problem until I started using an old Microsoft digital imaging program. Since then, it'll print exactly as I want it which is very useful when I'm printing off game covers!
