Fucking tough. 19 Jun 2015

This week has been tough. Fucking tough. I’d like to think I was transparent about things. I aim to be. But it’s tough. I skirt the line of being offensive/hyper critical/moaning old bastard.

Try core convos they're usually more suited for this.— Théodore Biadala (@nod_) May 26, 2015 @mikebell_ @emma_maria88 @DrupalConEur its been tried before nobody shows up - so community summit on Monday instead— mortendk (@mortendk) May 26, 2015 no no no...

It's Scrum Jim! 14 May 2015
