Good God! The Linksys QuickVPN client software was… quick! Et voila! The client has remote access!

Dear Apple & Movie companies, pls explain why movies provided without media, transport, packaging & retail margins are not VASTLY cheaper.

via Twitter Web Client

While halfway from Point A to Point B, I dislike discovering that things I need at Point B were left at Point A.

Excellent, my morning at Mosman has gone according to plan. And now, to see if the same applied to the afternoon at Northbridge.

RT @jeffjarvis: #080808 observation: In art, you concentrate on what’s done well, in Olympics athletics, on what’s done wrong. I prefer art.

@gnoll110 Or maybe just to One World Government with black helicopters. [Dons tinfoil hat.] [Heads down to do client work.]

@kcarruthers Well yes. I mean, buying the first batch off the production line of bleeding-edge tech? We’ve been here before, people. [sigh]

“What’s Behind the iPhone 3G Glitches” Apple, as usual, denies problem and refuses to comment. [sigh] http://is.gd/1rml Hat-tip @garthk.

Fri plan (finally): A sensibly-paced day at my desk (or another desk) on end-of-week documentation, planning etc. Lunch King St? Night TBA.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, we’ll make sure your European Tour is available to all in sound and vision. I’m thinking an N96 myself too, not iPhone.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus [nods] The N96 itself has been out since May. It’s just this thing about dividing the world into separate pieces… [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus All I can find re the Nokia N96 in Australia is “3rd quarter”, i.e. “very soon”. Can see grey-market ads.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Nokia Australia still has the N96 as “coming soon”. http://is.gd/1tyD Anyone have a release date? Available overseas?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@paullyoung In Australia, NSW at least, you surrender your phone, laptop etc in the security check before being allowed in.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung But yes, if it does break the rule, or a judge’s specific permission is needed, this is Contempt.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung Rules do vary state-by-state in the US. And we do have Judge Judy after all, which is a courtroom live on TV as entertainment…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung David Gerlernter’s book “Mirror Worlds” was about “when the theoretically public becomes actually public”. This is exactly that!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung [nods] Working out my POV too. :) But, a courtroom is usually open, and transcripts public too.This DOES make it immediate…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@paullyoung Looks like standard court reportage: Quote only exactly what was said in the courtroom.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

E.g… RT @SpokesmanReview ‘“He said he’s killed way more people that you probably didn’t even know about,” Shasta told the officer’ …

via Twitter Web Client

@paullyoung What’s the difference between, say, a radio station doing hourly news updates on a trial and tweeting every X mins? None, I say.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

@SnarkyPlatypus You were whinging about people whinging about the SMS changes? Here’s a graph! http://is.gd/1tkz Ta, @garthk.

@lewellyn There really is something Haiku-like about Twitter’s 140-character limit. I should write a HOWTO. ;)

@stewartizer @hollingsworth Hi chaps, welcome to my Twitterstream. It’s not always about Germaine Greer, thank the gods.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Note that I typo’d “Germaine Greer” as “Germaine Green”. Embarrassed. Concerned about grammatical tense too. Will try to do better.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, now it IS time for me to go to bed. I shall be dreaming of Germaine Green AND Julie Bishop AND possums AND Morris Iemma in a spa. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

Can I play piggyback with Germain Greer?

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon … of when hiking on Kangaroo Island, our meal was so bad we buried it, possums dug it up… and then left it untouched.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon “Quick, boil Julie Bishop in a big pot and make stew that has to be buried in a big hole”? Gosh… that reminds me…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

Is it time for me to leave the North Shore yet? Should I head South again?

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Why are you asking me? Don’t you have teh googlez on your computers?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce If Germaine Greer had any credibility she’d have had a fatwah put on her 20 years ago.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

(I should point out that I’m being snark-assisted by @SnarkyPlatypus to my right at this table tonight.)

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Well, “cleverly-disguised multiple-personality disorder with a rich dash of mania thrown in” is the nice way of putting it I guess.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@dnwallace Yay! You have solved the problem of @mpesce’s “special Sagittarian nature”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dnwallace

I should mention that I’m a friend of the trivia mistress, as it were, and know she does Good Questions.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon I like (1) participation by Twitter (2) the word “twitly”. But would the other teams trust us?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@franksting The @stub Pub Trivia is rock-up, but it used to fill tables quickly so I say 6.30 turnup for 8pm Game On.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@mpesce If you want your Australian citizenship then you need to obey the laws… of pub trivia as much as Barton / Bradman / Wattle.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Reta, the dominatrix of pub trivia, will ban any team using tech. Besides, cheating at pub trivia is lower than anything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@neerav You should get Google on your computer. It reveals this: http://tinyurl.com/553z43 A pub website, with menu, voila!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

@mpesce Well as long as you understand your place in the pecking order. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce That’s what? Pesce Live Alpha? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@stub Pub Trivia numbers check: Who’s planning to be at the Marlborough, Newtown, next Wednesday night?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stubbbbbb

Yay. Finally completed work and, by my reckoning, finished the on-site work for this client’s project. I am now loose on the North Shore. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Waiting for the last backup of the last disc partition to verify always takes the longest amount of time. It’s special relativity, I think.

via Twitter Web Client

This retro-futuristic synthesiser looks far, far too cool. http://is.gd/1r78

via Twitter Web Client

Exciting last tasks for the day: initialising the two backups drives on this computer. Thankfully only 8GB each. IT is exciting.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Is it the goats which are in peril? Or me? There is a pub nearby here in Northbridge, should I brave it later?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jg_rat Uh, I have “master keys” to their entire info infrastructure, why bother just rifling the drawers? (One answer: these chocolates…)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

Enjoying that quiet time now the client has left me in their office, they’ve gone, and I’m just wrapping up loose ends.

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung @linkman77 @lukehodges @Mrgareth Hi and hope you find something interesting while following me. Will explore your worlds later.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

OK, this is scary. I will be working at Northbridge well after 5pm. I will still be on the North Shore after dark!
