@SnarkyPlatypus There, I’ve corrected it, also edited the past so the original mistake is not visible here. Though it IS visible on Summise.

Retweet @SnarkyPlatypus: Shame is a concept that only exists for the insecure ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@Entregreeneur Oh, we’re turning this into a contest eh? I guess I’d better ensure that every single tweet is exactly 140 characters, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

Loose in the CBD while a big fat hard drive defragments. Users now have an excuse for slacking off.

@SnarkyPlatypus I believe the view visible in http://tinyurl.com/6g5ap4 is what you don’t want me to enjoy.

@SnarkyPlatypus “Will all ur moons be in alignment?” You have only a few short minutes until that question (and others) will be answered…!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

New Moon is at 1220 Sydney time. That’s under 40 minutes from now. Everything will be perfect after that, of course, @SnarkyPlatypus [smirk]

via Twitter Web Client

Watching the vast southern expanses of Sydney from a vantage point 53 floors above the Sydney CBD… oh, and maintaining client systems too.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus That makes me sound… well… grubby, sleazy & not particularly salubrious. I AM A MAN OF QUALITY! [Humph!] ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Less than two hours to go until the New Moon in Gemini. That will, of course, stabilise everyone’s emotions and calm the world. Ahem… not.

via Twitter Web Client

@deconstructo A special Act of Parliament allows me to emerge today, the New Moon.

Passing Town Hall in a bus. 30 mins ahead of schedule. I shall gawk at @mpesce on tv like a prole.

via Twitter Web Client

@seancarmody You’re right re AM radio and phones. I didn’t have teh streams set up, so @mpesce would be over by the time I’d done all that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Head down today as I reschedule the entire next couple of weeks. This is not going to be the most pleasant of things. At least it’s Friday.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus If you are going to invoke the trigger word then pls wait until weekend kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Why can I not listen to AM radio on my phone? Nokia FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client

Finally good to bn out the door at the right time of the day. Fresh world!

via Cloudhopper

Fri plan: client work in Mosman, and perhaps from elsewhere; projects to de-upfuck (“downfuck”?); 1800 meeting at Wynyard; evening relaxing.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Wet and 15C max, it says. Friday, though, which makes up for many, many things. Will I continue this silly 140-character challenge?

via Twitter Web Client

I just finished watching (finally!) @mpesce’s presentation at . http://is.gd/Lca 25 minutes well spent, despite the slides teh fail.

via Twitter Web Client

@jayrosen_nyu LOL! That’s scary! I write for Crikey sometimes, usually snarking about techclueless politicians. We’re glad we stole @mpesce.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@jayrosen_nyu You may also be interested in the half-day Aust Politics & Technology Forum in Canberra right after PDF2008.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@lewellyn Well I couldn’t DM @jayrosen_nyu just then, either from web or through the API. You Americans must just shut the fuck up. [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@jayrosen_nyu DM is geb0rken atm, so http://is.gd/Lca is @mpesce’s video, page before is the text. Enjoy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@SnarkyPlatypus Bah! @eEntregreeneur issued the challenge and I will continue to tweet exactly 140 characters because I am a bloody Taurean!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@willhughes That’s a superb link, thank you. http://xkcd.com/329/ And I’ve just added it to my Delicious feed so it’s blogged tomorrow. Yay!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

@jeffsonstein Amazing trust from client Tuesday: they paid $3k deposit when we haven’t even talked about the project! “It’ll encourage you.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@cait As I said earlier today, I simply cannot see you say “I’m getting more into FF” without having completely the wrong thoughts. Sorry…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@jayrosen_nyu In recent presentations @mpesce has said it’s not “content is king” but “connections are king”. Can provide links if you want.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jayrosen_nyu

Retweeting @jeffsonstein RT @failwhale: “Traveling in style! http://tinyurl.com/2hxwzu (this is gorgeous)” Agreed, that is REALLY beautiful.

via Twitter Web Client

@cait What I love about the REAL Turing test is the subtlety of it… It’s not faking a human, it’s faking a human faking. http://is.gd/Lau

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cait

@jeffsonstein It always keeps coming down to “trust”, and trust is something which is earned slowly, and lost suddenly. Another essay there!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@lewellyn @jeffsonstein I reckon we’ll eventually have compulsory labels. Like “artificial sweetener” we’ll have “artificial sentience” yes?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

Well, http://identi.ca has now fallen over for me. I’ll try to discover some numbers from the folks who run it. It’ll be interesting, maybe!

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein OK, so it’s not nice to pretend to be human to make money. In what circumstances IS it OK for a bot to pretend to be human? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@nicholaspatten @Hiredgoon Hi new followers. Hope you find something interesting. I’ll check out your worlds when I’m not quite overwhelmed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nicholaspatten

@kcarruthers Here ya go: “Scaling a Microblogging Service - Part I” http://is.gd/fN6 I found this VERY comprehensive. You may too… go 140.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers Plus every single user’s connection matrix is unique and changes in real time. Let me see if I can find that great blog post…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers There’s a BIG difference ‘tween micro-blogging (mostly one-way) to what Twitter is now (cocktail party): the interaction speed!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus “Entropy requires no maintenance.” Someone famous said that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@lewellyn The usual pattern: 00:00:01 Wow new thing. 00:00:02 Oh, it’s running slowly. 00:00:03 Hmm, this is fucked. 00:00:04 Wow new thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

I note that http://identi.ca already has load problems. THIS IS NOT MICROBLOGGING, PEOPLE! This is live real-time matrix-switched messaging.

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn There is no such thing as “excess gin”.

@robynp [smirks] You can get everything you need at The Production Book http://is.gd/L8F The producer’s bible for film & television in Aust.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to robynp

@SnarkyPlatypus Fuck off. I’m home. I’m the very model of sobriety. I am even here, on Twitter, saying things which will reach 140 chars. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dizzystuff NSW has plans for a new coal power station too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@seancarmody It’s an intermittent problem, and my own WordPress / Apache skillz are defeated.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Right, now I really AM leaving for the gym, walking there briskly along Enmore Road and King Street. @SnarkyPlatypus, here I come……….!

via Twitter Web Client

@Entregreeneur has just knocked me off the #10 spot, but I’m confident I can get back there when I arise early on Friday morning. 0600 FTW!)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Entregreeneur

(If you’re wondering what I’m talking about, see http://tweet140.com and note that I’ve been in the leader board most of this week. So far.)

via Twitter Web Client

(Though given that he seems to be tweeting his ENTIRE life story I could be facing a tough challenge here, folks! Do wish me luck, peoples!)

via Twitter Web Client

I doubt very highly that I’ll tweet anything between now and morning, but I have to aim at 140-character messages to beat @Entregreeneur! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I’m FINALLY off to the gym, having dealt with felines and the digestive tract. @SnarkyPlatypus will just have to keep pedalling for now.

via Twitter Web Client

@ReneLeMerle Obviously I enjoy giving you a hard time. ;) Still, with my client the r’ship is all about trusting me to give good recco’s. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ReneLeMerle

@ReneLeMerle Wdnt me to refer clients? Don’t try to bribe, just be best for their needs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ReneLeMerle

@mpesce By “k00l kidz” we mean the must haz bright shiny ADHD analysis-free plankton, yeah? ;)
