@barryf Don't get it?

@cronkshaw I think someone decided to scroll back through all tweets referring to Arsenal and found my one was the first so RT’d it.

@GoonerJenkoo @barryf @GoonerCheema Took me 7 years of scrolling down

@LadGooner Bit embarrassed that tweet of mine was a moan. Even back then Twitter was a good place for a whinge!

Getting a few RTs tonight of an innocent tweet I posted in 2006 about Arsenal. Might be the first one on Twitter? https://twitter.com/barryf/status/27690

@barryf Over 7 years and they still haven't took your advice on board, Barry.

@cescwh7 Jesus, that was a long time ago. Can’t have been many Gooners on here to read that frustrated tweet.

@RealBradHaverly Have a look above your right-hand shift key.

Intercom: If it's important, don't hack it

“Growth hacking is a dirty world. Scraping websites and spamming activity feeds grows a business in the same way anorexia solves weight problems, swapping sustainable solutions with short term kludges.”

How a Math Genius Hacked OkCupid to Find True Love

Entertaining story behind how someone hacked/engineered his OkCupid profile to be compatible with as many women as possible. But it didn’t guarantee him success in the real world: only after 88 meet-ups did he progress beyond a third date.

I’m also pretty sure he breached OkCupid’s terms of use by doing this :)

@barryf The District line difference on that is insane.

@tomgiddings @david_kirton I wonder how long from Windsor to Shoeburyness. Not sure you’d have much time for a day out at the seaside.

I’d love to be able to jump on a tube here in Windsor and pootle along all the way to the Essex coast at Shoeburyness. A few stops in between though.

We’ve been trying out Slack in the globaldev office. It’s the best alternative to Campfire I’ve seen and is free for now (with an invite), but the standard post-beta pricing ($8/user/month) looks steep for our team of ~50 compared to our unlimited $99/month with Campfire.
