Up and down the Eiffel Tower, Champs-Élysées, Arc de Triomphe and the Pompidou Centre. Dinner well earned.

Finally doing research into online Contact Lens suppliers and impressed to find that @Specsavers are still cheaper. Good work guys!

@barryf And did you write the name of the perfume down?

@GrahamM_6t9 I think it was called Ammonia.

In reply to https://twitter.com/7567782 post on Twitter
@barryf to clear seats?

@GrahamM_6t9 There was enough to clear the whole of Surrey.

@barryf There's a word I've not herd in a long time... #WOTD #Schadenfreude

@Lynden2883 It doesn’t get used enough. One for your next newsletter!

@PaulCaudell Probably trying to mask the smell of something worse.

@barryf To get enough room to spread out and relax on the train? ;-)

@andrewscrivener Well it backfired: a big fat guy just squashed in beside her. Schadenfreude.

In reply to https://twitter.com/22610785 post on Twitter
@barryf Probably best if you don't think too much about what she was attempting to mask...

@grayhaze Oh god no! gags again

Abandoned my seat on the train because the perfume on the woman next to me was so strong I was starting to gag. Why use so much?!

@barryf Sadly I couldn't make. Lightning talks are usually excellent. Hopefully catch you at the next one?

@martinbtt Shame: good talks and interesting bunch of people. Next one for sure.

Thanks to @globaldev (esp. @steviebuckley and @barryf) for sponsoring drinks at @lrug last night.

@andrewmcdonough Thanks, Andrew. Great to speak to you and @samsworldofno. When are you launching that dating site?!

Early to #lrug. No point hanging around: it’s freezing out there.

Kicking Mailbox’s tyres. Very slick. #InboxZero via @Mailbox http://twitter.com/barryf/status/300969533240385538/photo/1

I used to discover breaking news at work via Twitter. Now it’s via the @globaldev Campfire room #pope

@martinbtt Are you going to LRUG tonight? Would be good to catch up if so.

P. U. B.

@PriscoCBS: It's Friday and there are no football games this weekend. What?” this makes me sadpanda :(

@boffbowsh Nonsense. Watford v Palace tonight. 7:45 ko.

@agit8or would love to see that @barryf

@nstanley @agit8or Ha, no promises, Neil! Interesting alternative flow though.

The really clever feature of Mega is that you can use it BEFORE creating an account. Well worth borrowing that idea. https://t.co/Mh40G6as

@nstanley I love that pattern. Imagine a dating site where you search, write a message and then register+pay as part of the send process.

@timblair @andrewscrivener I do yeh. I used to use Divvy but now Moom. Being able to pull it up from the green maximise lozenge is nice.

@barryf @agit8or Already added and booked up until mid-June.

@thesambarnes Efficient. I’ll do all our planning via Twitter in future.

@barryf @codeclub there's not one near us, so going to start him on Scratch and see how he gets on!

@agit8or Superb. Ruby and MySQL next! When can we add him to the schedule?

In reply to https://twitter.com/19501149 post on Twitter
Dev types, anyone used Scratch or heard of it. Thinking of using as 7yo wants his own laptop and have a go, any views out there?

@agit8or I’ve heard it’s brilliant for helping kids understand and enjoy programming. Used by @CodeClub too http://bfr.st/XkNB70

@barryf Very impressive! And just in time for the next cold snap.

@jonnyhobbo Long overdue! Relieved not to have to decide between warm showers and warm rooms.

@barryf sounds dangerous :o

@hobbsy Terrifying. Flinched when I turned it back on. Feeling smug now.
