All in 💸 just take the money!
In 2017, the Weymouth Food Bank served meals to 1692 adults and 951 children. Nearly 24,000 meals served. It’s volunteer run by a church. Not the council.
Do you ever feel as a society we might have our priorities mixed up?
Can’t help but think @gruber comment on non subscription apps going the way of the dodo forecasts a lot of apps will get left behind.
For me to take a chance at even trialing a subscription based app now with subscription fatigue…?
Whoa boy it’d better be good…
“That’s no moon”
A rare visit to retail prime. At least I get some daim 😋
Baked a Dorset apple cake with the boys today.
Great fun with a delicious end result 😋 🍰
Pic from the comment “IT is not a healthy profession” on that article in my last tweet.
An old colleague of mine moved jobs to become a head of department at another firm. First week in someone died of a heart attack. I believe same happened again in the first 12 months.
This Story about InfoSec Pro’s and Alcohol rings a lot of bells to me. Hard drinking is reflective of a lot of IT culture as a whole. Especially here in the UK.
Not enough is done to give people work/life balance and keep them healthy. This is one of the costs.
Five Guys verdict = Good Burger. I like ShakeShack better still though. Shacks Potato buns & shack sauce are still my favourites.
Nice fries and you get a LOT (small was like 3x McDonald’s large size fries), but heavy.
Burger worthy of being called premium. Good stuff 👍
Finally going to get a 5 Guys for the first time. Let’s see how it compares to shake shack 😋🍔
Sat in a bar and a girl at a table next to us just said “Greek food is peng!”. At that point I truely felt like a very, very old man.
And a photo of the (much) busier main beach. 🏖
Enjoying the weather in Weymouth on the lesser populated beaches ☀️ 😎
Harrington says if the BBC keeps its own shows on iPlayer for longer it is in the tricky position that they will be worth less when it comes to sell them
AFAIC I’ve already paid for them with my licence fee. I should be able to enjoy the content I’ve paid to help produce whenever i want within that window. It’s always been frustrating you have this tiny 30 day window to enjoy the content.
BBC produced content should be on iPlayer for 12 months for UK licence fee payers. Nuff said.
It’s telling as a family we probably watch more BBC programs via Netflix than iPlayer.
“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators, in every nation.”
We’re not quite Jacking into our cyber decks yet… but so far, my first VR experience, it’s pretty cool… 😎
Apple ending the App Store Affiliates Program sort of shows how iOS/Mobile gaming is evolving as a whole.
It’s so hard for premium games or ports from other platforms to make a worthwhile dint vs the F2P & shovelware that comes out nowadays. Mobile a few years ago felt like a really exiting horizon and part of an evolution of what the GameBoy used to fulfil. The Goldrush days for premium games on iOS seem to be over now however for all but a few select developers. Even then, front page promotion can be make or break for small studios. Apple still doesn’t really care about these experiences over grabbing a percentage and having a flashy graphical demo they can wheel out every so often on a keynote. Curation and promotion are still as big a problem as they ever were.
Touch Arcade reporting and content has mostly pivoted away from more thoughtful pieces towards a swarth of positive reviews of shallow F2P games and less deep reporting or critical pieces. Touch Arcade have said this is because it’s what gets clicks. This is the content people want. And I 100% believe them. It’s reflected in the App Store as well. Apple only caring about their own promotion and curation of their market place doesn’t surprise me. Of course they want that control.
There’s a huge market for ‘gaming’ on mobile. It just no longer sync’s up with what older, more traditional gamers expect for the most part. F2P, Gatcha & Paid Advertising experiences don’t need to be written about or scored in the same way as larger, story based/premium games. If everything is surface deep, there’s nothing to dive into and discuss anymore.
As 2018 rolls on, Touch Arcade has probably become a relic itself of the market it chose to report on as gaming on mobile evolves.
Awesome article about mainstream papers video game reporting and how tabloid stories are put together. Well done for Eurogamer for putting this out.
You know this doesn’t end at how they report on a popular video game.
Good fun watching historical sword play at Dorchester Borough Gardens #LoveParks event in the sun today.
Hats off to them wearing all that replica armour in this heat.
Listening to 🎶 Jesse Kivel - LA Story 🎶
Perfect tune for a lazy evening walk back home as the sun starts to lower over Dorchester 😊.
Had awesome pizza at the Stable in Poole today. Really impressed. Lived in Dorset for years but never been to one before. Good quality, interesting toppings and kid friendly. 👍🍕
Waiting for some 🍕 at Stable in Poole checking out the decor 🐷 😂
The kids hamster gets pretty extreme after hours… 🧗♀️ 🐹
Seeing a conversation between @craigmcclellan & @gb about equipment lists lit a fire under me to update my Gear, Playing & Reading static pages on my Micro.Blog. Still a fair bit to add to the Kit List. Will be interesting to see how it changes over time.
We decided to make the most of our Sunday afternoon and make haste to Chesil beach for some rock pooling & ball throwing.
Days like this are so good for soothing my soul before the crazy work week begins again.
Darn tootin’ he is. 🤘
