@garthk Nah the ASP isn’t WTF material, just a jumble of content and unfactored code. The usual naive non-structure. Thankfully a tiny task.

ICANN, the Internet body for overseeing domain name management, loses its own domain name to a hijacker. http://is.gd/MWF Oversight FAIL! ;)

In the names of all the gods, why require me to re-cut ASP code on a Monday? ASP written by someone who’s far from a professional developer!

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, you’re 100% right. It’s the same old problem: being too nice to clients who don’t realise how nice I am. [Shoosh, you.]

Do not strangle clients… Declining planning meeting as expensive then sending a stream of emails asking “Do you think XYZ is good for us?”

via Twitter Web Client

Do not strangle clients. Declining support contract but then 18 months later expecting emergency response! Breathe… Breathe… Breathe…!

Emerges. Like a concrete tapeworm from the anus of the world’s biggest concrete sheep. “Victory is ours, Matthew! Victory is ours! Rejoice!”

@jeffsonstein Why do you lower yourself to even attend an event with the “word” “megatrends” in the title, let alone endorse it by speaking?

@jeffsonstein Tweeting from bed via matching MacBook Pros is perhaps sicker than tweeting each other in the same pub. Welcome to teh future.

New venue involved sushi & miso. We mostly avoi@garthkrthk’s rainstorm thru deployment of guttering and a $3.99 umbrella of dubious quality.

via Twitter Web Client

Working on the principle that it’s tragic to eat dinner and lunch at the same pub @ApostrophePong and I are moving to a new venue. Stand by.

via Twitter Web Client

Concentrating on Bluetooth and then (apparently) doing some copywriting for @ApostrophePong and ignoring @mpesce’s dubious fearmongering. ;)

@Alegrya Look I think I’ve answered enough questions on this issue. This press conference is over.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@SnarkyPlatypus I have never, and never will be, associated with goatpr0n being downloaded at Kelly’s.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Ah, @ApostrophePong and I are at l’Hotel at the same time! That explains where all the freaking bandwidth has gone! Bigger pipe plz kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Kelly’s does so only have one room. There may be 2 levels, BUT THERE IS NO DOOR! I am the gatekeeper, are you the keymaster?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@trib What’s amazing about Robert Fripp’s “Exposure” is that the vocals (OK, screams) was originally intended for Daryl Hall! See newish CD!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@ApostrophePong You lie! You are not at Kelly’s. I am looking around the room now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Ah! The day is complete now that I’ve linked it back to Robert Fripp. http://is.gd/ymz And I see @trib is in a vaguely parallel universe. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Excellent! We are fated to succeed. And the signs are with us: “It is impossible to achieve the aim without a giant concrete sheep.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Grymhorn Ah, “need” is a tricky word. There are only Seven Needs in the world, which match the Seven Categories of Satedness (see earlier).

@mpesce The T-Card failed. It’s time to Re-Sink the Belgrano. Phase 2 commences tonight. Activation EFA6-425R-TJ7D-M3N1-S4J5. All hail Eris!

@mpesce Plz doez not mention me in your evil revilutionz, try not to raise more than 1 flag/week semtex assassin bomb president kthxbai. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I saw that same rookery of nuns at the sameish time yesterday, walking eastbound along Broadway by Victoria Park. IT IS THE SIGN! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Oh dear oh dear… YouTube has started suggesting videos I might like to watch, based on what I’ve been watching lately. Algorithm skew FTW!

“When you bring your lovin’ to me-ee / Let your love come easy and free-ee, Yeah / You know what I mea-ea-ean.” http://is.gd/N4o Way classy.

@colco @kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Wow the biggest response I’ve had all day is to me describing what I had for lunch! Prioritisation FAIL!

via Twitter Web Client

A decent rare steak and a pint of Kilkenny puts the world into proper perspective. Even if we’re doomed if we continue to eat so much steak.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk No, tomorrow I shall be at Mosman. Joy. But you may wish to consult with @Alegrya about the day’s bookings for The Afternoon Office.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@deconstructo “If you want to forget…”? Oh no, Sir! My memories are some of the most astounding things I possess! They SHALL be preserved!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deconstructo

@glittertrash Kelly’s On King, Newtown, “Irish” pub, has free WiFi upstairs, officially to 7pm, in reality 8pm, hence: The Afternoon Office.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glittertrash

Mobile. Errands to King St, Newtown, then back online from The Afternoon Office. The one with free WiFi, RSA-trained staff and a jukebox. ;)

And look! There’s @misswired’s photo of my dinner from Friday too! http://is.gd/N0h I’m so glad teh internetz record everything of value. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@marclehmann That’s at least TWO double gin & tonics you owe me. I think we’ll have to sort that out soon. Coopers Ale failed to provide. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@bigyahu @liubinskas In total agreement re http://saasu.com. I’ve used it for a year now, VASTLY better than MYOB for me. YMMV, of course…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bigyahu

@jeffsonstein Whack-a-Mole is not a metaphor, it’s a “lifestyle choice”… no hang on, I could be getting that confused with something else.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@garthk @ApostrophePong Here is @misswired’s pic of us at the C Bar on Friday night replete with ad hoc LANage. Geeks much? http://is.gd/MZK

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

YES! I’ve FINALLY guessed the combination of lies I told Yahoo! when I signed up. Now I can haz Flickr again. Many senseless deaths avoided!

“I can try to pretend, I can try to forget. But it’s driving me mad, going out of my head…” http://is.gd/MZm Yes, God bless Mother Russia!
