Also made Entity and [Base]Object abstract, since they probably should have been since day one! /cc @withknown

I've just pushed an important @withknown patch that deprecated Object in favour of BaseObject, for PHP 7.2 support. Plugin authors should update their code to use BaseObject, as Object will be removed in a future release...

Early warning for @withknown devs. It looks like we're going to have to introduce a couple of breaking changes to the class hierarchy to handle PHP 7.2+, especially storage types extending Object. I'll keep you posted...

What is the responsible thing to do with old computer hardware and games consoles which work, but are just obsolete? Consoles I'm thinking could be a good donation to a children's charity..?

Based on feedback from a friend I'm updating my CV to focus on impact rather than tech. Seems obvious, but for some reason I wasn't doing it! Good for the ego, my last project won an award ffs: http://blogs.kqed.org/pressroom/namle/

Folks! I am looking for new work opportunities in 2018. Ideally, FT or PT contract of up to 9 months in the Oxfordshire area, or longer/elsewhere if remote working is an option. Big bonus points for a social mission. Get in touch!

Merry Mythmas to you all!

Dear brexiters: 1) You could always have blue passports, the UK just decided on red ones. 2) The idea of a nation state is backwards and idiotic.
