@lewellyn I was thinking of pricing it SLIGHTLY higher than “free”, my generosity does have some bounds. ;)

@garthk Ah, you have a matching Mac Mini to sell too? Well… we can advertise it as a “server cluster” to get a better price! Commerce FTW!

@SnarkyPlatypus School hols? @ApostrophePong won’t like the extra kiddie-traffic at the restaurant. But “Fairies” is playing Enmore Theatre.

Before I offer it on eBay, anyone want a Mac Mini G4 1.25GHz 512MB 40GB, all original packaging, 3 weeks of AppleCare left on it? DM offers!

Retweet @neerav: our federal government info blog would be “power of conclusive certificates & blocking FOI requests” :(

Mon plan: A sensibly-paced desk day at home, with an empty house for added concentration; lunch Enmore/Newtown? Evening TBA, probably quiet.

UK Govt has a WordPress blog (yes!) about freeing up up information! “The Power of Information Review” http://is.gd/MTa Where’s ours, Kevin?

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Everything seems subtly different. Is that something the government has done, or is it an emergent phenomenon? Someone should look.

Pottering at my little desk before bedtime. Copying files, stressing the network, causing civilisation to fall in small, undetectable steps.

@andrewbarnett “I have no evidence that Twitter receives these missives; it just makes me feel better to post them” Like praying, really? ;)

@andrewbarnett Mind you, I could turn for The Veronicas…

@andrewbarnett Ages back @SnarkyPlatypus plugged his pop-laden MP3 player into my Mac. iTunes imported everything. Kylie made me a criminal!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I BLAME YOU! Syncing iTunes onto my new Mac. First song copied: Katrina and the Waves “Walking on Sunshine” http://is.gd/MGt

@seancarmody @garthk @erkpod Sounds like geek tours work then… unless they’re all now protected from teh terrorismz. On my “someday” list.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@seancarmody @garthk It might be fun to run geek tours to places like container terminal, Sydney Harbour control tower, sewage treatment…?

@Grymhorn Well, I’m guessing it’s Unicode FAIL. Twitterific has Unicode, but Twitter has a bug handling greater-than signs, this is similar.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Grymhorn

@Grymhorn Hmmm. Twitterific counted exactly 140 chars. Twitter web says I went over, but the ellipsis … shows no more chars. Unicode FAIL!

Finishing downloading software while @ApostrophePong finishes making Nam Tok (น้ำตก). Isan food FTW! http://is.gd/MDT Water buffalo, beware!

I’m copying files from the old computer to the new computer, and discovering in the process what a complete mess everything is in. Cleaners!

@garthk Quitting all other apps on OS X? Or just Vista VM? Note: I’m not THAT desperate to play games on the train.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@garthk Bugger. Sounds like I won’t get to play Silent Hunter III on the train. A WWII submarine sim with bad sound is an unspeakable crime.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

I’m HOPING the distorted sound is a Vista thing and not a VMWare Fusion thing, ‘cos then I can run an XP virtual machine too. Where to look?

via Twitter Web Client

What else is Vista good for?

via Twitter Web Client

Bugger. The combination of Silent Hunter III, Windows Vista, VMWare Fusion, OS X Leopard and a MacBook Pro does not work. Distorted sound…

@DamienL @ehelfant Hi hope you find something of interest in my Twitterworld. How did I blip up on your radars, may I ask? Something I said?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear, that’s the very first thing I’ve tweeted today, and it’s 3.19pm now. I suppose that’s a healthy disconnection from the grid, no? ;)

@lewellyn &a@ApostrophePongPong: Whatever you do, don’t t@SnarkyPlatypusypus that you found a mattress, or he’ll make an obscure political joke.
