@trib Oh I suspect Vodafone will be incapable of the flexibility needed to keep me as a customer. I’ll tell them that directly.

@firstdogonmoon Price will drop substantially once it’s long enough not to piss off the folks who bought early/expensive.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon iPhone plans (& mobile data generally) will drop, yes. They’re at “early adopter” stage. http://is.gd/1giz

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon I have still to chat with Vodafone to see if they want to do business. Otherwise… I suspect Virgin may get my money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@neerav I’ve also been told that masturbation can be quite refreshing in the early afternoon. http://is.gd/1gi1

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@Limburger Ah yes I do know the coffee / brief nap / awake technique. I think getting out of the house will help. Off to Mosman soonish.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@firstdogonmoon Who did you eventually decide to get your iPhone from? I mean, “The Devil” ultimately, but the retailer?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

Up until 0200 dealing with disc problems, so energy and enthusiasm is starting to fade. Will an apple help?

RT @NathanaelB: Google StreetView of ASIO, DSD and DSTO complex at Campbell, Canberra http://tinyurl.com/6csnsp There’s your flag today. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris Yes. Truly excellent toys. Just don’t take them out of the building. And don’t talk about your day at the office to anyone, ever.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@smperris Absolutely! DSD would have cool things to do. Provided you want to work in a bunker in Canberra, that is. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

Wow! DSD recruiting ads on ZDNet! “Malicous IFRAMEs? Heap overflows? You’ll love what we do.” http://www.dsd.gov.au LOL!

via Twitter Web Client

@rogerchristie what? You want Google to give you a free world map AND a free t-shirt? Greedy! :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rogerchristie

RT @eskimo_sparky: I […] replace “unknown error” with “you should eat a chocolate now” - it makes me feel a lot better seeing that msg ;-)

via Twitter Web Client

@rogerchristie Well, various people saw and even photographed the Google Street View cars. And then were overjoyed. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rogerchristie

For the cheaparses who don’t subscribe to Crikey: “Oh no, Google took a photo of my house!” http://is.gd/1gf9

@chris23 Thank you. You have reduced my productivity even further. :P http://twistori.com/ more at http://tinyurl.com/2trchw was the cause.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chris23

Wasting far too much time staring aimlessly at http://twittervision.com

via Twitter Web Client

Also “Journalism Is Dead”, a ‘true diary’ from a newspaper office http://is.gd/1g9A Hope he/she can continue to be this funny!

via Twitter Web Client

Via @kiyoshimartinez: Fake LA Times http://www.notthelatimes… “State sells San Diego to erase budget deficit.” [smirks]

Wed plan: A bunch of desk stuff this morning, lunch somewhere, Mosman mid-afternoon, evening undecided. It’s all a mess and unispirational.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib BTW, I assume you’ve seen yourself in “Australian twitterati talks malware” [sic] at http://is.gd/1hvb ?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Douglas Adams is unlike to be offended, since he’s dead. However HHGG is certainly literature, since it’s influenced our language.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib I was thinking, the ad-buy offer would be a good scam, yes. Flattery, then gather bank details for payment, i.e. identity theft.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Hmmm… Someone says they want to buy advertising on http://stilgherrian.com. I’m not necessarily sure that I want ads.

via Twitter Web Client

And now my Twitterstream, is overloaded with pub trivia comments. Yes, that must’ve been a good idea.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge “The Invasion of Senator Wong” sounds like a good movie title, but I for one will not explore it further. (Hi, Penny” [waves].)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Emerges. Even with an early night it aches, is blurry. Maybe it’s Thursdays. I never could get the hang of Thursdays. A literary reference!

via Twitter Web Client

Earlyish night for me, got very little sleep last night and brain has imploded. “Situation normal”, some might say. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

Opp environ spokesman compares Sen Penny Wong to Saddam Hussein. http://is.gd/1gCg Good to see rational debate on planet’s future from Libs.

via Twitter Web Client

@j_stirk Nah I’m OK. I think the pattern I’m seeing is just leave one drive out, then copy data off. RAID is to be retired when done.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to j_stirk

@j_stirk Oh please don’t tell me RAID horror stories. ;) This one just throws out random drives once it’s finished building. No data loss.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to j_stirk

OK, I shall remember this @stub Pub Trivia concept and chase it in the morning.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Well @SnarkyPlatypus and I already form a team, “Amanda’s Womanly Juices”, a reference to our former immigration minister.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

That cunting RAID array threw another drive out, too. Must be a bad cable or a bad SATA controller. [sigh] Computers are such bullshit.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @misswired That’s Tues @ The Duke, Enmore; Weds @ Marlborough, Newtown; Thurs @ Botany View, Newtown.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers @misswired Yes, a @stub pub trivia MUST be one of Reta’s Trivia Magic nights. @ApostrophePong and I are, um, special with her.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

I was just thinking that I could gather Sydney’s mostest kickarsest pub trivia team.

via Twitter Web Client

I believe my steak will be ready shortly. The Warren View gurgles along, with a smattering of young funksters.

via Twitter Web Client

Tweet #6000, and all I can think of saying is, “I’ll respond to those excellent suggestions re RAID after I’ve had some dinner.” How boring.

via Twitter Web Client

Now I’m wondering if there’s an explanation of RAID for non-technical people, so they at least learn what it does.

via Twitter Web Client

@Maab RAID can be either a physical device or (in this case) software which controls where the data is stored and mirrored on the discs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

@Maab There was no real risk to his 200GB of photos, he just couldn’t access them. Much stress.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

@Maab Ta. RAID turns a bunch of discs into a big, safe storage device. When it works. This one didn’t, held @ApostrophePong’s photo archive.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Maab

YAY! The RAID has successfully rebuilt, except for the one faulty drive. And I just happen to have a spare on the shelf. Again, YAY!

via Twitter Web Client

@viveka Ah! @mpesce is to blame for many, many things… [shakes head sadly] Today has not been THE best day to start following me, but hey.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to viveka

@BrendanB Yes, @renailemay caught me in that 30-minute window mid-morning after coffee, before gin. Hmmm, do I really want that on record?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh look! I’m Twitterati, “one of the nation’s most prolific twitterers”. [smirks] http://is.gd/1gsE

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus You now know what the Spice Girls were singing about in “2 Becomes 1”, but do you know where my keys are? http://is.gd/1gsr

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers I am glad we’ve had this conversation. I feel that we’ve become closer through our poo. We are one.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers A book? “What your poo is telling you”? What does your poo tell you?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@smperris @BrendanB SNAP, boys, more or less. ;) Certainly this process is shitting ME, hopefully not the data.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

Mind you, I still don’t know why I’m tweeting the rebuild of a RAID array. Perhaps I’ll talk about my bowel movements instead.

via Twitter Web Client

RAID is happily rebuilding. However when it gets to the end (90min) it will (again) shit itself. Task: figure out why and stop it happening.

via Twitter Web Client

Returning to the week’s Great Question, “Will I manage to get this freaking RAID array up and running again?”

via Twitter Web Client

Did I leave keys at the bank? Can’t call branch direct. Must go thru call centre, layered IVR, be transferred. Then phone rings out. Cunts.

via Twitter Web Client

@DenubisX There’s been some interest so I’ll write a brief HOWTO sooner or later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

@DenubisX Start with “Skype for interviews” http://is.gd/1f5u Audio Hijack Pro to record audio, Auxiliary Device Output to split to Ustream.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

@seancarmody Oh I have a spare house, yes. It’s called the pub. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

OK, Universe, have it your way. Mosman plan abandoned for the 28246th time. Not enough time left before COB. Now, those keys…

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… Spare house key found, but still worried about the location of the others. Oh well.

via Twitter Web Client

No, Dear Universe, I mean REALLY grateful and RIGHT NOW plz kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Universe, I would like to leave the house now. If you would be so kind to reveal the location of my keys I would be most grateful.

via Twitter Web Client

@vealmince Oh agreed. French rap is an abomination. No wonder its fans are into “deviant behaviours including theft, violence and drug use”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

Retweet @jayrosen_nyu: Video of me explaining the web’s “ethic of the link” and the news industry balking at it. http://is.gd/1giX (4:21)

via Twitter Web Client

@eskimo_sparky Agree with you re clients paying. I did my bit, i.e. did the work. Now it’s your half of the deal. Only arseholes renege.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eskimo_sparky

@markhjones This was my Great Firewall of China piece, if you missed it. ;) http://is.gd/1aZG

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markhjones

Retweet @Limburger: Teenager? Like Pop music? Then you must be struggling with your sexuality… http://bit.ly/328mK1 Note, @SnarkyPlatypus!

via Twitter Web Client

@markhjones @bronwen Yes I spoke with Amnesty’s Sophie Peer re , will DM details. She’s not deep tech, I read up on that if useful?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to markhjones

@logaan Writing your own KPIs? I suggest “pints consumed” and “attractive staff laid” should be there.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to logaan

@jg_rat ‘“ads = harsh reality”? Certainly if the aim is to make money. That’s not my aim with http://stilgherrian.com, at least not for now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

RT @Limburger: “It’s fine, like a warm stream running down the side of your leg every time you tweet… invigorating.” Lovely.

via Twitter Web Client

I just couldn’t bring myself to use software called “Twinkle”.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus “Jars of honey and anteaters”? I’m going to pretend I haven’t the faintest idea what you’re talking about. “Sic ‘em, Rex!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kerryank No-one who knows Senator Wong would expect her to be interested either. ;) I was good friends with her late brother as it happens.

Thu plan: Quick email purge; 1100 client meeting The Rocks; 1330 lunch with web dev Surry Hills; desk; 2130 Stilgherrian Live Alpha ep 8.

via Twitter Web Client

Though that said, a few thousand visitors a month to certain pages, I could generate a few dollars… [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client

All that said, I have nothing against advertising per se, I just want my personal site to be about me, not distracted by anything else.

via Twitter Web Client

@marclehmann LOL! You’ve ALREADY crossed to the dark side: you worked for a BANK! ;)
