So anybody with an email address will get spam email. It's pretty much a fact of life, and fortunately filters find 98% of it and maybe the odd email goes to your spam folder by mistake.
Who unfollowed me on SoundCloud and who do I follow who doesn't follow me back? Well I've written a handy application to answer just that question.

I'm trying out this new fasting diet, and thought it would be interesting to share how it's going.
tl;dr "Fast" two non-consecutive days per week, of two 12 hour fastings beginning with a single meal of 300 calories. "Feed" five days of "eat what you like".
After using SubSonic DB for a few weeks, refactoring out an old DAL/ORM I found that I needed to hook into the Entity Behaviour; Initialize, Save and Load etc.
Replace <select> dropdown list controls with a clickable visible list of items on the page. Save that annoying 'click to view list' 'click to select' friction when picking from a short list of options.

While refactoring one day, I couldn't work out why my code had broken. That's not unusual, and so I checked and re-checked the new code that I'd written. Nope, it was bug free!
As part of the XDA Facebook Windows application I wrote an interface for Facebook Chat. This article has lots of sexy techno-bable like X509, TLS, Base64 and some yummy X-Facebook-Platform too.
Maybe I just caught Bing on an off day?
I just finished watching the marvelous Derren Brown’s “How to Win the Lottery” program, as well as watching the live “prediction” last Wednesday where he reveals the numbers after the draw.
I really like Facebook. It’s a great website for connecting with friends and sharing pictures and stories.
