@jeffsonstein As that great philosopher H J Simpson said, “Sleep is for the weak”. http://is.gd/j1Y However I see non-tweet times 0000-0400.

Reviewing video footage from Eurovision at the Pub… scary!

via Twitter Web Client

OK I’ll have a poll at the start of the program to decide whether there’ll be any Eurovision material. I promise not to rig the result. Yep.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I am assured by @garthk that it is indeed a feral goldfish. He made it: refer all complaints to him.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@jeffsonstein I am detecting certain anti-Eurovision tendencies from the North Americans and ex-pats. You simply do not understand!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@garthk I have no energy for snarkiness today, not after snarking for Crikey and awaiting my new Macbook Pro.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@mpesce Oh, surely I have to show video highlights of our Eurovision pub night? @SnarkyPlatypus’ explanation of The Mid-Tempo Gap FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce You will be happy to know I will have better CPUage for tomorrow night. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

I am sharper now. Better pixels all round.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk (It looks blurrier to me ‘cos Twitter’s scale-down-to-icon isn’t the best.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Does this new avatar work to your satisfaction then?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk My advice is that “they” has been a non-gendered singular pronoun for centuries, an they need to learn to speak English. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Wait? They have mechanical watches now? [Snuffs out striped candle.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

Emerges. Thinks: “Project management? Conference? Streaming media? All in one day?” Fuck, I’m gonna need a LOT of these alkaloids…

via Twitter Web Client

@SuperMacMan Oh it’ll be left until the weekend! Conference tomorrow and my own micro-media tomorrow night. Plenty of client work on Friday.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Shaun_R

@SnarkyPlatypus Well Google is mystery FULL STOP. ;) I type in text, it tells me things. I think it’s run by teh evil cane toad cockroaches.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein Oh tomorrow with TV/movie/telco people will be funny. People ask why I don’t return to radio. Um, because it’s the PAST?!?!?!?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@SuperMacMan Agreed with all of that. Independently I’d just decided to do a complete manual transfer to the MBP as a “clean environment”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Shaun_R

@jeffsonstein Well both Sydney and San Francisco are cities of 5m people full of queers on a picturesque harbour. Say no more! EQUIVALENCE!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@dizzystuff Sorry, did you just say “cocktail party”? I can usually hear those words at a range of 450 metres… in the wind.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve previously written about Apple and Google as dangerous cults. ;) http://is.gd/mTw

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jeffsonstein Yep, the Sin City of Sydney corrupts all. except those who were pre-corrupted. I still like being called “cherished” though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@Fifikins Drowning cockroaches gives you joy. Freezing toads gives you joy. Are you an evil witch?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fifikins

@SnarkyPlatypus I thought I was already one of the Children of the Damned for not going to the gym tonight?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Retweet @metarand: “Carriers - deer in the iPhones headlights - my Mobile Content World take: http://snurl.com/2b1mk” I’m going tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, working out details is what tech support is paid to do. i *can* figure it out, but why learn something I’ll never use again? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@SuperMacMan Agreed, a manual transfer to a clean install is good. I don’t need the USB key tho, have plenty of network and drives here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Shaun_R

The new MacBook Pro (correct capitalisation) is a joy, I’m sure. Migrating from a battered well-hacked Tiger PowerBook G4 is tedious.

via Twitter Web Client

I’ll leave Mac migration for now. Conference tomorrow. I’ll call Apple on Friday. If no joy I’ll do a manual transfer on the weekend.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce The old G4 does go into target mode. The CD which is in the drive is remotely mounted by new machine, but not the G4’s HDD!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@jeffsonstein They are media and marketing people in TV, movies and telcos, they have no clue whatsoever. I will heckle beyond all belief.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@garthk Old machine isn’t visible as Firewire drive with Command-T startup; via ethernet there’s a “network error” after ~10 mins (untimed).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

Tweet 3001, but it’s not from the new machine. :( The OS X Migration Assistant is teh FAIL. Well, or the old machine is teh brokenz.

via Twitter Web Client

This is tweet 3000. PowerBook “posen” will be shut down. My next tweet will be from “danzig”. Newer, faster and fewer embarrassing stains.

via Twitter Web Client

Sometimes I wonder whether my use of Twitter is appropriate. Sometimes I think “appropriate” is such a Victorian concept. Sometimes I don’t.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Twitter’s new role: domestic disputes at a distance in public. ;) I’m phone-fucking rice as we speak. Misinterpret ad lib!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong’s photos from Eurovision at the Pub: http://is.gd/mOO I’ve got the video camera. Guess which one is @SnarkyPlatypus… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ssharwood You get a traffic spike for Bill Henson, I get one for Samantha Fox. 12500 additional visitors this month to http://is.gd/d6r

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

For my sins, I now have a media pass for Mobile Content World in Sydney. Missed today, but looks like I’ll catch up fast. http://is.gd/mJF

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Thank you, Twitterverse! I can haz red wine?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@mpesce I would never have teh *special* sugar cubes… on a Wednesday before a silly conference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

My god! It’s full of stars!

via Twitter Web Client

@dedlam Yes, “blog meme” is a completely perverted usage of the word “meme”. Misses the point entirely.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

@tibbetts_sound Tonight’s storm in Sydney looks small but intense. Radar view: http://is.gd/5JA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tibbetts_sound

@ragnarok1971 Yeah was watching the cloud approach as I took the cab home. I took a quick snapshot, will upload later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@SnarkyPlatypus Copying 70GB of data and other testing takes a while. Anyway I know we’re worked out our schedule by our usual telepathy. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Massive raindrops begin in Enmore. Slow, but huge.

via Twitter Web Client

BIG thunderstorm rolling in over Sydney’s inner west. Fat, noisy and threatening. Like… go on, name someone! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Dilemma: gym or unpack the new ‘puter, ready for work tomorrow? Can do gym tomorrow instead?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dedlam Just use the word “meme” randomly in important conversations, it’ll make you sound clever. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

@dedlam A meme could be as simple as “red light means stop”, as complex as “Bill Henson’s photos are child pornography”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

@dedlam As a gene is the base unit of genetics, a meme is the base unit of ideas, concepts etc. Also used in blogging to mean a silly game.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

Lightning over Newtown.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ve just taken possession of Steve’s lustbox, I see people looking at me differently.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Wynyard Hotel, the sign saying “restrooms maintained to highest standard” doesn’t stop stale urine smell.

Unpacking is a private moment between consenting adults and warm hardware.

via Twitter Web Client

There will be no photos of unpacking. It’s like every other MBP. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@royal618 At NextByte Clarence St (well pub across road while RAM sorted). No can do coffee.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bennglazier

En route to Sydney CBD to collect new Macbook Pro etc. AFK.

@jeffsonstein Tweetstats looks like I don’t sleep ‘cos they’re aggregate tweets over 4 months. http://is.gd/j1Y Daily pattern varies wildly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@hwakelam You’re not allowed to marry dinosaurs. Illegal. Also uncomfortable. Much pain in the breeding times.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hwakelam

Going to Mobile Content World conference tomorrow for Crikey and me. Program at http://is.gd/mJF Anything of particular interest?

via Twitter Web Client

@cybersomatic Absolutely. I’m willing to be convinced that Sea Shepherd are not pirates who should be jailed. But it’ll take good logic. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cybersomatic

@jeamland Yeah two containers of narcissism a day is a lot just for personal use. “Steve Jobs arrested Thursday for trafficking narcissism.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@andrewdotnich Narcissism is essentially free, except for shipping costs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

Retweet @Warlach: “Just heard from Hotmail that they are aware the service is bouncing emails sent from Gmail. WTF?”

via Twitter Web Client

“Apple takes delivery of 188 mysterious ocean containers”? http://is.gd/nfi That’s just the quarterly re-supply for Steve Job’s narcissism.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus They’ll certainly come in handy at Mobile Content World if the vibe is what I think it will be, too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus The “special” sugar cubes will indeed come in handy if you follow the conversation @jeffsonstein and me, yes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Retweet @jeffsonstein: “@stilgherrian as alkaloid-ridden #1 neocon sex kitten of Oz… I may have trouble selling this vision to some.” YAY!

via Twitter Web Client

@avalterra Welcome to my Twitterworld! It says “futurist” on your thingy so you may find @mpesce and @metarand of interest.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to avalterra

@jeffsonstein One day I will mention that the alkaloid I referred to just now is “caffeine”. But not today. This tweet never happened. Ever.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Damn you, Google algorithms and your geographical knowledge! At least in Australia I’m #1 for “neocon sex kitten”!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@Nickhodge Someone once told me that heroin would make your pain go away. He did not look like a person to trust for this sort of advice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Plz be not in pain, it’s not good for you kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Thu plan: Clear inbox; order stuff for client’s new data network; Mobile Content World conf; Stilgherrian Live Alpha ep 5 @ 9.30pm Syd time.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein You’re right about radio, the Bay area, and Google. Google for “neocon sex kitten” and see who you get!
