Fun day at @londonhackspace@twitter.com making ever more rectangular rectangles. (Made a crosscut sled that now cuts pretty square.)

My stool is finished and ready to be used. This one has been in progress for a while and delighted to see it finally finished!

Merry Christmas to everyone from gate 43 this morning. My 19th year of airports at Christmas. This song by the @TheDoubleclicks means so much. youtu.be/2LBTPpaGmkE (And happy holidays too...)

I now run a service which helps you diagnose slow queries in PostgreSQL. It makes a diagram from the query planner output, helping you see which bit is slow.
