So, a long week it has been between client work, graduation and working with my colleague Mike on getting our business off the ground when I notice my Twitter feed wasn't feeding zip....
Change to Twitter's API? No.
Server polls hit maximum limit? No.
Razor syntax causing server parsing issues? No.
Curious. All in all, some three hours or so was spent tracking down this strange phenomenon. Coffee was required. I made my merry way to the kitchen, and brewed one of my extra kicking coffees. I played with the kittens for a few minutes and headed back to my laptop trying not to let my frustration spoil my mood.
I sit down and glance at my browser. I notice Disconnect, my new browser plugin flashing away. Cue the dropping penny. It's a privacy plugin to stop tracking cookies. I think I've been spending so much time coding and ironing out software bugs that every problem I encounter I assume to fall into that category. Lesson learnt!
