@barryf Strong name for a brand. I see a partnership forming.

@BenHobson I can see it now: “barryfrost” on billboards in Times Square, emblazoned on football shirts and whispered by Rihanna in a TV ad.

“Sir… We formally received an application that… KHK Global Limited were applying to register ‘barryfrost’ as their Brand Name” Seems legit.

@barryf Lol I still get one a week from that bunch informing me about a "great siebel opportunity in the M3 corridor"....

@cronkshaw They’re infuriating. I have a rule now which automatically deletes anything from their domain. Siebel!

GOV.UK social sharing buttons: the first 10 weeks

So far in this study, sharing buttons haven’t driven significant traffic. I’d argue that the clutter and page slowdown meant they had a negative effect

Computer Futures recruiters: you’re all still sending me unwanted emails I can’t unsubscribe from; I’m still marking each as spam. Give up.

Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle series 3 begins on BBC2 on 1st March

And just as exciting is the news that Chris Morris will be appearing as the interviewer. He did a charming off-the-cuff intro for Stewart at last week’s Royal Festival Hall show and I was hoping he might be involved in the TV series. A perfect replacement for Armando Iannucci.

Update: The Guardian (or at least the headline-writer) goes so far as to say that the Chris Morris “comeback starts here”.

Can anyone recommend a time based 'to-do' app that will sync across my various apple devices please? #lazyweb

He was tall and looked very rich and manly.

@StevieBuckley RT GerardButler Just walked past a guy checking me out in Covent Garden. He was big and mad looking.

Forget the noise surrounding the Year of Code. This is why it is so important: http://t.co/cqRpU0m2wi @ukcoding #yearofcode

@barryf your right though. That's where it all started for me too. I was an Acorn Electron boy though.

@ppounder Me too. Loved that cream box.

@barryf I always put a semi colon after the PRINT command so it just followed on without a carriage return. #thewayiroll

@ppounder OPTIMAL!

@barryf brings back memories - agree!

@nick365 Tweets about the advisors miss the point. Weening kids off consoles and getting them coding is what matters http://bfr.st/86

Anything that encourages kids to code is worth backing. Where it all started for me:
