Just panicked and checked @barryf wedding date vs world cup schedule... phew, good planning Sir :-)

@cronkshaw Don’t worry, that was top of my list to check for!

@Georgefine @barryf Want the Tues Champs League game Barry? George can't make it.

@cronkshaw No, sorry, I can’t make that one either.

Compelling day at the rugby (league) semi-finals. England so close to beating NZ. Australia irritatingly rampant.

@barryf these conversations are such a novelty! :D

@boffbowsh When you start questioning The Arsenal you embarrass yourself. Stick to the gridiron!

Arsenal didn’t beat us, we beat ourselves. Bring on Chelski next week #SaintsFC

@boffbowsh Pipe down, Bowsh.

@barryf Happy birthday mate, I think it's about time you took the plunge and treated yourself to a new R8! - http://t.co/bc8Fc4Y1uA

@BenHobson Cheers. Just need an Innerspace-style laser to shrink me down and I’ll take it for a spin.

Tinsel, the little guinea pig with an eyepatch who was my avatar on and off over the years, passed away this morning. She was the best.

@grayhaze Very sorry to hear that, KP. Best wishes to you and Mrs P.

New article: Monitoring my broadband connection http://barryfrost.com/2013/11/monitoring-my-broadband-connection

BT spends £900m on Champions’ League rights. As a customer who still rarely gets more than 2Mbit/s from their broa http://bfr.st/64

BT spends £900m on Champions’ League rights. As a customer who still rarely gets more than 2Mbit/s from their broadband I’m not best pleased. And I doubt participating football clubs’ ticket prices will come down either.

Monitoring my broadband connection

My home internet connection quality seems to yoyo from day to day. Our area is yet to receive so-called “superfast” broadband and I’m stuck with somewhere between 0.5-2Mbit/s depending on contention. Frustrating.

“Can UK economy stay top of the league?” @peston compares table-topping Arsenal to the resurgent UK economy. http://bfr.st/63

Can UK economy stay top of the league?

Robert Peston with an entertaining comparison of the recent upturn in the UK economy with Arsenal’s ascent to the top of the league. Arsenal answered fan discontent by signing Özil while the government boosted confidence through the Help to Buy scheme.

We just need to buy a striker/get a new PM…

The cat’s really not enjoying the fireworks this week. Too scared to go out, last night she made her own dirty protest in the sink.
