We finally moved to the new office in Kensington High Street

Not only the office is a very good one


but I’ve also received the Welcome invite:

We know that with the end of the week approaching you are all feeling rather anxious where to go for a quick drink after work, what with the trusty Warwick and Glassblower being so far away.

Never fear, we’ve organised a bit of a pub crawl to welcome you to our new home in Kensington, so please join us tomorrow from 5pm at the following pubs:

5.00pm The Greyhound

Located at 1 Kensington Square, W8 5EP, this pub is a local for most at Northcliffe House. Down the Young Street lifts and across the road to the right.

5.45pm The Builders Arms


A short walk away from the Greyhound, this pub can be found at 1 Kensington Court Palace, W1B 5JB, and has a rather cosy beer garden to make the most of what’s left of the summer!

6.30pm Archangel


A favourite of mine, this bar can be found at 11-13 Kensington High Street, London, W8 5NP, has a lovely conservatory area, downstairs dancefloor and is open til 2am.

For those of you that think you may become regulars here, we’ve managed to secure loyalty cards for Archangel, giving you 50% off all drinks (excluding champagne) from 5.00pm – 8.30pm, Monday – Thursday. Pop around to see me to collect yours!

All you need to do is print off the attached token and show it at each of the pubs to claim your drinks whilst we are there.

HTML5 support on WP7

After updating my Omnia 7 to mango (http://create.msdn.com/en-US/news/Mango_Beta) the first thing I was curious to test was the HTML5 support of the browser.

Basically the WP7 browser offer the same support of HTML5 as IE9 on Windows 7:

IE9 on Windows 7 IE10 Preview 2

Chrome 13 Firefox 5

WP7 Mango  

As you can see, the font support is not quite the same, but I have to say I’m a bit disappointed buy the result, even if it’s all I could have expected.

It’s still very disappointing to see IE10 so far behind Chrome and Firefox.
