"Nigel Farage has a point"... isn't a phrase that I thought I'd ever find myself thinking, let alone uttering in public.
There's no doubt that there's a delicious irony in Mr UKIP finding himself the victim of some - what shall we call them - intolerent views, robustly delivered.
There's also no doubt that he's milking it for everything that it's worth.
As for UKIP themselves, and their views, I have no time for them*.
I've also no idea whether he was really barracked by genuine students, or a bunch of anti-English idiots (see here for my views on that sort of thing).
However, I do think that we mustn't lose sight of the fact that Scottish nationalism is, well, nationalism.

In a blog post last month I introduced Mock Server, an Objective-C toolkit to help with the unit testing of networking code.
Basically, Mock Server works by running on a local network port, pretending to be some sort of server (ftp, http, you name it).

Once or twice I've had the situation where I ran some unit tests in Xcode, and they seem to run incredibly fast. Too fast.
Spoiler: they didn't

Unit testing is great, but when you're working on networking code, it can be a bit of a pain in the, erm, transport layer.
I've been doing quite a bit of network-related code for Karelia recently, and I wanted to be able to unit test, so this became an issue for me.
