@seancarmody Chatting here does nothing about it. We should all immediately PHONE or WRITE to our MPs to complain. Chatting changes nothing.

@seancarmody Indeed. The risk is “special powers” to deal with “terror”, then redefining everything as terror. Thin end of wedge etc. But…

@chris23 Yes, just for one day. Sadly, what happens when you realise that you’ve already had your day…? ;)

@stub “Let’s show him some STUB love” brings images of amputees to mind. I shall not describe the rest of the scene lest it arouses the PM.

NSW Premier Iemma thinks having no trains = teh terrorismz. http://is.gd/NP1 No, arsehole, just INCONVENIENT, embarrasses YOU. How DARE you!

CafĂ© plays David Bowie’s “Heroes”. Mr Bowie & Mr Eno, you rock. http://is.gd/NOQ Mr K Rudd finds young girl “sexual”. Sick. http://is.gd/NOU

Shit! I just turned the teapot three times sunwise, not widdershins. I hope that’s not going to screw it up. It’s Earl Grey, it should cope.

@ApostrophePong There’s WiFi at Blue Fig Cafe, also detecting Enmore Theatre box office. Eat at cafe once, get WiFi password, good to go. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Tuesday revised (Mosman now tomorrow): Brunch on Enmore Rd (will try cafe that says WiFi); project management from my desk; evening at home.

via Twitter Web Client

What shits me most is that these clients have such little understanding they don’t even know they’re getting a good deal or service. [Done.]

via Twitter Web Client

Tuesday plan (now that “emergencies” covered instead of ignored): one more coffee, then work from Mosman client’s office; evening undecided.

via Twitter Web Client

@glenmcfarlane Yeah it’s a bit like declining fire insurance, then calling to order some as the house is burning.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glenmcfarlane

Wed TOTALY rearranged: write about iPhone for Crikey.com.au; lunch meeting CBD (more soon); brain implode; gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus

via Twitter Web Client

Nice to see Rep @johnculberson tweeting from the floor of US Congress http://is.gd/OFm even if he is a Republican. ;) WHERE ARE OUR POLLIES?

via Twitter Web Client

Wed plan: Get out of here as quickly as possible and head to the Mosman client’s office for the day; then gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.

@chris23 I do recall a suggestion of building a veranda down the entire east coast to prevent global warming. Maybe they’ve started already.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chris23

I’ve looked at this nuclear warfare option in some detail and it’s just too goddam inconvenient. I suggest we just ask them nicely. Or poke.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Another problem is that I live in Municipality of Marrickville. They declared themselves a Nuclear Free Zone. Separate physics here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Via @johnculberson: US Dems proposes Reps’ tweets be approved before tweeting, as “official;” comms. http://tinyurl.com/6mkvvk [PDF] Insane!

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Ah, yes, good plan. But, um, I’m fresh out of nuclear weapons this week. [shuffles feet.] I don’t suppose you have one you could…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

“100 Unbelievably Useful Reference Sites You’ve Never Heard Of” http://is.gd/ODV Well, heard of SOME of them, but a nice list just the same.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Notes weather forecast for 13 max, 4C min, wonders whether some mistake has been made, whether an umbrella is blocking out the sun.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Oi! My ENTIRE LIFE is a mythic cycle! And I have evidence… a stupid fantasy-like name, for starters!

@seancarmody ‘Pong my quest I found a 6-pack of Singha, perfect accompaniment to larb ped and friends. It was a struggle… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Victory is mine! The Quest has been fulfilled! And now, the perilous journey home… 500 dangerous metres.

via Twitter Web Client

After a struggle, the Third Obstacle has been overcome! The Quest is almost complete!

via Twitter Web Client

Success! And the Third Obstacle: avoiding forces of Royalty and the Minor Nobility.

via Twitter Web Client

Success! Now the Second Obstacle: the Sirens’ Call of the Elusive Feral Mammal…

via Cloudhopper

The First Obstacle: many Chariots on Stanmore Rd. The Warren View provides sustenance so I can brave the crossing.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. The Quest has Begun!

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong It seem you’re the ONLY person on all Twitter to use to tag the Thaksin corruption story. http://snurl.com/2ushh

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@seancarmody My pleasure, Sean. I enjoyed catching up on your recent blog posts. You write well and point out key issues.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@monnie Telcos use credit reference agencies for assessments. All they know about you is fed into secret algorithms to say “good” or “fail”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monnie

@trib Devil’s Lair 5th Leg has its moments (wine named after a dog’s penis!), it may not work with what @ApostrophePong finds in Thainatown.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@ApostrophePong hath given me a Quest! I must travel some 500m to Enmore Road and find something nice to drink with dinner. Wish me luck…!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@Akula True, Photoshop’s “Save for web” is a Fine Thing, the bit I use constantly. But I’m exploring options for OS X ‘cos that’s ALL I use.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

@Akula If you can teach someone everything they need to know about Photoshop CS3 in 5 mins, they don’t need Photoshop but something cheaper.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Akula

@PeterBlackQUT They let @mpesce speak from the stage because he’s famous and owns a suit. I have to sit up the back and hurl insults.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@trib “Shall we take apart the old media there together?” Oh, absolutely! You bring the spanners, I’ll organise a nice sharp knife…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@PeterBlackQUT It’ll be scary… both @mpesce and I will be tweeting from … expect a Twittermeltdown!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@matthooper @NathanaelB Yes but ANY new technology has people moaning “it might be misused”. The Wheel is used on both ambulances and tanks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to matthooper

@AshleyAngell @ApostrophePong Talking CAN be fun, yes, depending on who you’re talking to and how much the 1900 charge is… I’m always fun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AshleyAngell

For the Future of Media Summit, since I can’t find an existing , I propose … pass it on! http://is.gd/N8P

via Twitter Web Client

@AshleyAngell Your friend Dan asking whether Twitter is fun is like asking whether the phone is fun. Confusing the channel with the content.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AshleyAngell

Sorted! I’ll be at next week’s Future of Media Summit wearing Crikey.com.au hat and my own rather fetching beanie. http://is.gd/N8P Mwhahaa!

via Twitter Web Client

@seancarmody Cool! Writing to MPs about dodgy laws for World Youth Day is a Good Thing. I’ll write to the Princess of Marrickille soonish…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Rejoice! I have returned! And I am wrapping up work for the day (mostly).

via Twitter Web Client

OK folks, going off-grid (well, off THIS grid) to work thru backlog of client communications. Back after The Outage (presumably).

via Twitter Web Client

The VMWare/Parallels question was for @4fthawaiian rather than me, but the consensus does seem to be in VMWare’s favour.

via Twitter Web Client

@4fthawaiian VMWare or Parallels to run Windows on your Mac? My Apple dealer told me to get VMWare recently, though I forget his rationale.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 4fthawaiian

Retweet @seancarmody: Posted my thoughts on the Australian music industry http://ping.fm/JT5jP Nice work, spot on, sir!

via Twitter Web Client

It gets better! Client with no support contract, needed emergency response, is given 1st troubleshoot info. Says, oh, we entered data wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear AusCERT, the email you just sent was written with such bureaucratic neutrality as to be completely opaque untl the 6th reading kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe if the spectacle WAS the NSW ALP machine impaling Iemma on a stake”, we’d have PLENTY of trains to take us there!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Mediamum If govt wants trains to “run smoothly” they should invest in them, not invite 200k pilgrims to gawk at some bloke in a silk dress.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

@JBUB Um, no, RailCorp doesn’t do the strikes, their staff and their staff unions do. I suspect RailCorp wants things to run smoothly. ;)
