Thank you AGAIN very much to the folks who persisted watching and who’ve been SO complimentary!

The epic (epic fail!) episode 8 of Stilgherrian Live Alpha is available to view at http://is.gd/1i8E Ustream recording!

via Twitter Web Client

10 mins to Stilgherrian Live Alpha episode 8 http://stilgherrian.com/… Is the Ustream chat working OK?

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett I promise you, no Mary Poppins. In fact, nothing G-rated at all. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

45 minutes to airtime and even I’m getting worried about the material I’m assembling.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, home and preparing for Stilgherrian Live Alpha episode 8 in just under 90 mins. http://stilgherrian.com/… is the place to be.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Pedants, my previous tweet used “WFT” when it should have used “WTF”. FMD. I hope you will cope. Yours faithfully, Stilgherrian.

via Twitter Web Client

This is bizarre! There was a cane toad toxin spambot on Twitter. WFT was THAT about? http://is.gd/1hXK

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce We are all cane toads. It’s just that some of us are still to accept that fact.

Just over two hours until Stilgherrian Live Alpha ep 8 is live at http://stilgherrian.com/… … time to head back from the pub?

@SeandBlogonaut @paccadoodle Viruses attack at random, and HAPPEN to replicate in weakest. Evangelists CHOOSE the weakest. More sinister.

@ApostrophePong Learning how to digitise footage? Does that involve teh computerz?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@nickobec @LacqueredStudio Yes, for a government that promised “evidence-based policy” there’s very little evidence of this evidence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nickobec

@ApostrophePong Sending me a file? Um, well if you’re on the net at ALL then upload to, oh, Basecamp or your website.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@mpesce Actually, DON’T patch your DNS. Then you can claim that anything supposedly done from your computers was probably Teh Hackerz.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@nickobec Glad you’re reading ACMA Internet filtering report. If any major insights, do please comment at http://is.gd/18y3 ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nickobec

@LacqueredStudio Oh you can’t have ANOTHER nomination. ;) And besides, I’ve already mentioned Senator Penny Wong today, with anteaters.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

Retweet @DavidFeng: State of emergency declared for Beijing tomorrow? Tweets have it, but no mainland (official) site can confirm this.

via Twitter Web Client

@LacqueredStudio Thank you for nominating Mick Keelty, yes, that is an excellent choice. Or should it be Kevin Andrews?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@SnarkyPlatypus Almost everything would be better if it was “Total Eclipse of the Heart”… public transport, food, the government…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I have also just bought a Skype-In number so I can take talkback calls. Have I taken one bold step too far?

via Twitter Web Client

@erkpod No, this is when both the @stub geeks and the fresh young nubile geeks all sang together. It goes FOREVER.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

The drunken singing goes on for a VERY long time though. The song involved makes that almost inevitable. It’s embarrassing.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… well far more votes for drunken singing or some combination involving same. But I do want to drop the art in too. Extended episode!

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Twitterverse, for my program tonight, which random video? Drunk people singing a dodgy song, or contemporary art from Cockatoo Island?

via Twitter Web Client

Mind you, making up a graphic for a group of people is always a pain in the arse.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewdotnich @DenubisX Ah yes, Aussie telcos and the Menindie Lakes water-retention folks are good ideas. I also nominate Greg Barns.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@erkpod Ah no, I’m on from tonight from 9.30pm Sydney time. Looks like I’m confused about time. Again.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

And, I need some nominations for Cnut of the Week: people like King Cnut the Great who are trying to hold back the tide of change.

via Twitter Web Client

Hmmm… Is Stilgherrian Live Alpha up against the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games? I’d better get a flag…

via Twitter Web Client

The Governator’s plans thwarted by… COBOL! http://is.gd/1hRh Not enough programmers to change California’s payroll system as he wants.

Migrating to the “proper” Afternoon Office(tm), Kelly’s On King, Newtown. ETA 1615 Sydney time.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m afraid I can’t see Crikey’s headline “Saddam Wong’s Coorong” without thinking grubby thoughts…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@misswired Yes, was QUITE surprised to see you pop up there. Now I know who your employer is… known him for years.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

Meetings over, a quick recharge at the C Bar before heading back to the village.

via Twitter Web Client

Excellent client meeting, more consulting work to do. En route to Surry Hills by cab. Sydney feels like spring.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Yes, Stilgherrian Live at 2130 Sydney time, including “The Shave” movie.

via Cloudhopper in reply to mpesce

@SnarkyPlatypus You thought WHAT was anteaters and Senator Wong?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@firstdogonmoon SnapzX Pro (sp?) from Ambrosia Software can record any section of the screen to video. Not free, but cheap.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@SilkCharm 1100 client meeting in The Rocks, then a 1330 in Surry Hills.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

En route to The Rocks.

via Cloudhopper

@SilkCharm [smirks] Pls don’t refer to Crikey as “trad media”, at least not out loud. They like to think they’re hip’n’cool with teh kidz.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@DavidFeng I’m enjoying your tweets from Olympic City. Crikey.com.au is looking for contributors from Beijing this week, DM for more info.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidFeng

Fri plan: Get through as much of email / client contact backlog as possible. Mid-PM to Mosman to FINALLY set up their backups. Evening TBA.

via Twitter Web Client

@tdm911 Yes, that 747 pilot is obvious sick of the armchair experts thinking they know everything from a few hours of Flight Sim. ;) Good.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@WarWraith @greymatter78 @CameronCollie @CCarney And to you , hi too. Even more overloaded with new followers today, new protocol needed.

Who posted the link to YouTube video of planes landing at St Maarten, almlost on the beach? Here’s the cockpit view! http://is.gd/1iQV

@SnarkyPlatypus The Carpenters? No, if aliens are to gain the best impression of earthlings, they must first see http://is.gd/1iQO

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

There are just so many things I’d intended to do this week, yet there is only today left. Dying RAID arrays are time-suckers.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Yes, I am a beast. I’m not quite sure which KIND of beast, exactly but, yes, I am a beast. And now to bed. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon’s latest video for Crikey.com.au: “Focus on Peter Costello” http://is.gd/1ig4

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon But you do stuff for Crikey EVERY day! You must be RICH BEYOND MY WILDEST DREAMS!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon [smirks] Yes, we are special Twitter-Crikey-Facebook friends. That’s VERY special.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon “Relaxed” perhaps, but not “drunk”. But perhaps that’s all part of the media magic?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@kcarruthers I would never feel “guilty” in that way because I am not a “Catholic”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

“What” “have” “I” “done”?

via Twitter Web Client

@misswired “I” “am” “using” “them” “because” “it” “wasn’t” “really” “a” “phone” “but” “Skype”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@misswired Thank you for “phoning in” too, that was kinda fun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@deanlk I’m not sure how long before the next series, but I don’t want it to be too long. I want to maintain the momentum.
