So this is a modern version of random.org?
Seems cool, but it seems a bit odd to rely on a 3rd party service to introduce randomness into your project

We provide VoIP and have a direct link to BT to pass calls, and we have to provide BT with address details that match with the CLI of the line.
We don't let customers set their own CLI, (and even if withheld to the other party, BT still see the real CLI) so emergency calls still get the correct address data.
What I want is a small standalone device for playing music.
Basically, an Ipod Mini that fits in the cash pocket of my jeans, but for spotify.
It could sync to my phone to update playlists etc, but have untethtered offline playlists. That way I can use my phone for phone stuff, and have my music separate, and not have my battery being used up.
I've been paying for Evernote Premium for about 7 years now, but I recently cancelled the renewal.
If I'm paying for a Office365 subscription anyway, I might as well use OneNote - from my testing it does everything I need it to.
Just a shame that they haven't seemed to add anything of value to Evernote during the time I've been paying them, so really there is no reason to stay.
What's up with this sliding out overlay that seems to have appeared on articles?
Kinda annoying having to move the page up and down to be able to read the last bit of the article.
Could you put a close button on it so at least I can make it go away?
Once it all gets finalised and secured properly, it's going to make for some cool stuff being built - lots of nice interactivity without having to resort to Flash.
I noticed that since I have started doing this with one of my spare domains (I went back and changed emails on quite a few existing accounts as well), the amount of spam I get has dropped. Could just be a coincidence, but I have this image of a marketing bod running a "select email from customers where email not like '%mycompany%'" or some such thing
The problem is when 2 or more independent parties come up with the same algorithm - might be a long shot, but not outside the realms of possibility. If both parties have spent millions and years to develop it, why shouldn't they both be allowed to profit from it? "I got here first so pay me loads of money" just seems wrong.
Why does everyone hate on Yodel?
I've never had a problem with them, in fact they have been super helpful.
Had deliveries that I missed, they left a card with a mobile number, rang that and the driver came back 15 mins later. This was at 18:15 when I got home from work.
Seems good to me.
So the lesson here would be not to base your entire business upon someone elses data.
At the end of the day, it's Twitter data, that is generated by Twitters users, you can't really complain if they then decide to change THEIR business model, and you are stuck because you didn't think that those nice people at Twitter would ever end your cosy agreement.
Saying "But I was here first!" doesn't really mean a great deal TBH
Or have I completely missed something here?!
Personally, I find it a pain in the arse to read, it constantly looks like something is missing, and I don't really want to learn a new syntax and stuff to get to where I already am..
I had a very basic example here, but the forums don't keep formatting... https://gist.github.com/3736194
