ServiceStack is just plain awesome when it comes to developing web services, though it's gone commercial for v4 onward. Nancy is another popular alternative - it's basically Sinatra for .Net. Every time I go back to WCF I want to stab myself in the face.

Yes, I'm in. We'll be the only .Net shop in the room as usual.

I've attended several and I'm a .NET developer too. You'll be safe. Yes there's loads of Ruby and Node devs there but in the main people aren't prejudice. My experience is that it's more about ideas and not about language implementations.

We're .NET as well -- safety in numbers?!

I'm not really a .Net (although I've done some C#) guy but I would kill for a bit of type safety in the large python code base I work on! Someone pleeeaaase start a Haskell company in London :-)

You really should, I've got one at my office and one at home.

No love for IE at all by the looks of things.

Really nice smooth animation.

It would be nice if the alerts appeared in the centre of the screen though... I find that jerking my eyes up to the top of the screen and then back down to what I was looking at quite intrusive.

Ideally you could specify an HTML element to place the notification near, and then pass whatever element the user activated to trigger the notification. Or you could specify target coordinates, and compute the desired location yourself. Both of those ought to use optional parameters, though; defaulting to center seems reasonable.

If you look on the demo page (http://fabien-d.github.com/alertify.js/), all of the alerts get injected into #alertifylogs.alertify-logs which is positioned by css and therefore should be easy to overwrite:

    .alertify-logs {
        position: fixed;
        z-index: 5000;
        bottom: 10px;
        right: 10px;
        width: 300px;
    }

The problem is, I believe, TFL won't open up their API without charging for it.

I'm sure Apple think they've got a patent on it already so why not use it?

It's a good thing they got rid of that chap's arm, or they would have got a cease and desist from HostelWorld.com

I wrote to the UK's Advertising Standards Authority regarding misuse of the word "unlimited" as relating to broadband and mobile internet.

Their response was that "as most people wont hit the limits, they can call it unlimited".
