    @ggirton Oh and an SFTP plugin because I can’t use FTP to update WP and plugins etc.

      @ggirton Just Jetpack which adds the ability to customize quite a few things.

        @ggirton Yes, nothing wrong with that. I’m just lazy, and more likely to post elsewhere if I know it will serve a double purpose as it were :-)

          @ggirton Thank you! It has been quite a fun process, and I’m surprised how well it has worked.

              The delightful thing about having shiny bike rims is that you glance down on a sunny day and see the wheel glitter as it turns. It’s like riding a disco ball.

                @cgiffard Ah, that makes sense. How tempting! @tomcat

                  @tomcat My mind is boggling right now 😳 @cgiffard

                    @tomcat Ooof. That's ridiculous. Murdoch sticks his sticky beak in over here too. @cgiffard

                      @cgiffard I LOVE the BBC. I don't love everything they make (game shows, celebrity stuff etc.) but that's fine. As long as they carry on making independent, quality stuff, I'll support them whole-heartedly. @tomcat

                        @cgiffard I would hope the BBC would be in the same position, but some papers like The Daily Mail whip up anti-BBC sentiment and accuse them of ‘bias’, which means ‘not totally right wing’ when the DM says it 😒 @tomcat

                          @tomcat Tell me about it 😒. They would wreck something really valuable. Sigh.

                            @tomcat That’s sad. I guess the BBC does make a fair amount, but the Governnent want to reduce the licence fee, which the Beeb relies heavily on.

                              @tomcat I know. I'm terrified the Tory government is going to destroy the BBC when the Charter comes up for renewal 😞

                                @tomcat It was on BBC1, but also on BBC America I believe. And there's a DVD box set coming out soon too :-)

                                  I feel a bit bereft now that the TV adaptation of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell has finished. It was superb, and has made me want to read the book all over again.

                                    Oh no! Just watched the last episode of Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell. What will I do with my Sunday nights now? It was a fantastic adaptation I have to say.

                                      @bestoftimes Great album. It really stands the test of time, particularly when you listen straight through.
