House move done. Now off for a weekend on the Isle of Wight to escape the endless unpacking.

@kaleighjane @jasonkneen Thanks very much.

Last tweet not quite excited enough… Woo woo! I’m a homeowner! Yay! :)

Completed on our house earlier today. Since then, cleaning and last-minute packing before the actual move tomorrow. Tired but excited.

If @sparrow evolves into the Gmail (and Apps) Mac and iOS app then I’m happy.

@easyjo So much easier than via Homebrew/MacPorts. Smart move by Heroku: much cleaner to use PG locally if you’re going to deploy with them

Postgres for Mac - @heroku sponsored Mac Postgres install

Run Heroku buildpacks locally and remotely via Vagrant

Run Your Jekyll Site On Heroku

Describes use of Heroku’s new custom buildpack to generate the site at build time - much cleaner.

@nstanley Ha, more accurately… #moving

I’ve also been packing boxes and calling utilities companies while home alone. Can’t wait to get back to work!

Today I have spent over £1600 on electrical goods, none of which have an Apple logo. Or even a USB port :(

@andrewgarner Smart typography and clever touches. Looks like an attractive town too.

Loved finally seeing The Stone Roses all together on Friday and then an epic 3-hour show from The Cure last night. Tonight: Radiohead.

There’s not enough watery Heineken at this festival for me to enjoy Mumford and Sons.

@jasonkneen Thanks, Jason.

Off to @optimusalive festival in Lisbon for the weekend. Stone Roses, The Cure and Radiohead await! And some lovely sun

Scanner Pro

Scan multipage documents, upload to Dropbox and Evernote. Now with iCloud integration.

Now using Scanner Pro for scanning pages from iPhone/iPad. Impressive B&W scanner/fax-like results

Gig booked: I’m seeing The Whitest Boy Alive at the Coronet in August

Inexplicably, football legend Carlos Valderramma is in Windsor to jog through the town with some fire

@neilmiddleton Good work. Looking forward to reading that.
