          @morrick @kdfrawg @larand I always appreciated the Iain Banks / Iain M Banks split - as a reader I know it's the same person, but also the genre he was aiming at each time.. I absolutely don't think you need different-different names though..

            Amputations and stoning are barbaric punishments which don't deserve to exist in this century. https://t.co/eszihAhAGf

              @neilco In which case, watch the Horizon episode about online dating, and also talk to @askvirginia over on Twitter - she's good at helping people write profiles etc..

                @neilco It might be one of those zen things. Stop looking, be happy and who knows what might happen.

                  @pme It looks like it's using a combination of approaches, using iCloud for the data state..? Good article here: http://m.imore.com/handoff-ios-8-os-x-yosemite-explained 2/2

                    @pme Yep, along with Bluetooth LE. Must admit I initially considered that it might use BT to exchange credentials, in order to establish a new ad hoc WiFi connection, similar to Air Drop. 1/2

                        I saw the pilot episode of Preacher on Amazon Prime earlier. I've read a bit of the comic, and I thought it did a good job of the 'feel'. Smart and very darkly funny, with some great characters...

                          @pme Not 100% sure, but I think it might be related to Handoff..?

                            @literary Firstly: Happy Birthday! Secondly: Woohoo! Thirdly: There are a number of ADNers in Seattle - maybe one has a spare room, or knows someone looking for a lodger?

                                I joined the Lego VIP scheme today. What could possibly go wrong with that...?!
