Despite having the musical ability of a metal oil drum full of ball bearings falling down the stairs, I downloaded the new Garage Band yesterday and after the press of a few buttons I’m all set to compose the score for the next John Carpenter movie.
(My opinion of my musical ability has not changed and neither should yours)
(It wasn’t me!)
From the dreariness of the show, you wouldn’t know that anyone on The Voice had a personality – but one of the contestants obviously did. He used his time on the show to secretly draw cock and balls all over the set. Signs, graphics, walls – everything got a large dick etched on it.
The producers went nuts – ordered the set to be completely cleaned. Time passed, new graphics and signs were made and the team were quietly pleased when the Phantom Penis Penner was eliminated. Until one day, towards the end of the show, they went for a meeting in a quiet room at the back of the studio, closed the door… and saw a huge penis drawn all over it.
That is why no amount of cajolery, and no attempts at ethical or social seduction, can eradicate from my heart a deep burning hatred for the Tory Party that inflicted those bitter experiences on me. So far as I am concerned they are lower than vermin.
They condemned millions of first-class people to semi-starvation. Now the Tories are pouring out money in propaganda of all sorts and are hoping by this organised sustained mass suggestion to eradicate from our minds all memory of what we went through. But, I warn you young men and women, do not listen to what they are saying now. Do not listen to the seductions of Lord Woolton. He is a very good salesman.
If you are selling shoddy stuff you have to be a good salesman. But I warn you they have not changed, or if they have they are slightly worse than they were.

I’ve been a user of the Tweetbot Twitter client on my iPhone for quite some time and quite frankly I still rate it as one of the best available. In my tweeting lifetime I’ve used Echofon, Osfoora and even Twitter’s official once wonderful now wretched abomination.
But I digress, Tweetbot supports syncing of timelines and direct messages over iCloud meaning that whichever device you pick up to tweet it should remember where you last left off. Not a feature that was of any particular interest to me when I only used Tweetbot on my phone but since I’ve acquired an iPad it is a feature that has been of great interest to me, not to mention a massive source of frustration.
Apparently “it just works”. Unless it doesn’t, in which case… errm it doesn’t. I know this because I’ve Googled my fingertips flat trying to find out what stops it working and discovering that nobody seems to really know. However, if you’re a fellow sufferer, before you proceed I’d advise following this excellent troubleshooting guide from the Tapbots blog.
Anyhow, finally, it’s working (and bloody useful it is too) so here is – to the best of my recollection – the sequence of events that I carried out in my attempt to sort it out once and for all.
If working you should now find that if you have both clients open at once and actively use one the other will update and update a few seconds later.
Whether streaming was set on or off made no difference.
Also, now it is working I can confirm that no Tweetbot data is visible in your Settings » iCloud » Storage & Backup » Manage Storage section.
There’s a lot wrong with this approach. It’s a proper blunderbuss technique, it involves the dreaded hard reset which I am not a fan of, there is no way of knowing which step actually solved my problem and there’s no guarantees it’ll work for you. The whole method is a product of frustration and a lack of time to invest into a more detailed and methodical investigation.
How very scientific.

My Dear Friend,
As you read this, I don’t want you to feel sorry for me, because, I Believe Everyone will die someday. My name is Mr. Richard Andre I have been diagnosed with O esophageal cancer.I want God to be merciful to me and accept my soul so, I have decided to give alms to charity organizations, as I want this to be one of the last good deeds I do on earth. So far, I have distributed money to some charity organizations in the Oman, Algeria and Malaysia. Now that my health has deteriorated so badly, I cannot do this myself anymore.
I once asked members of my family to close one of my accounts and distribute the money which I have there to charity organization in Bulgaria and Pakistan, they refused and kept the money to themselves.Hence, I do not trust them anymore, as they seem not to be contended with what I have left for them. The last of my money which no one knows of is the huge cash deposit of thirteen million united state dollars $13,000,000 that I have in England from a contract i did with for amex.
I dont know how much time i have got to live and i would like to entrust my dying wish to you so you can help me make them true and to make things fair you can control 30% of the funds which should be ok for you and the rest for my last wish .
A little bit cute
