RT @cshirky: 4yo, pointing @ Twitter: “Is that the internet?” 7yo, older and wiser: “Yes. Everything that isn’t a movie is the internet.”

@tdm911 That “Batmobile” has a “cassette player”, whatever that is. http://is.gd/1XrF Surely THIS is the Batmobile? http://is.gd/1Xs0

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

Hmmm… 7 people found my website by searching for “homer simpson pussy”. That’s not right.

@wolfcat @Nickhodge @ApostrophePong @stilgherrian Not Alzheimer’s, the pre-1985 music clips are all @SnarkyPlatypus’ fault. Honestly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@tdm911 Thanks for drawing my attention to @Alcoa, I needed something to be negative about. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@Alcoa may be on Twitter, but it’s just PR. “Alcoa does good. Alcoa does good.” Polly wants a cracker. Talking, not listening. Yawn.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alcoa

@erkpod Oh BTW I forgot to say that “stankydorco” if the most awesomest new word since @firstdogonmoon’s “olympicest”. Bravo!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

I could also attend @stub by Ustream or Qik video, but that would reveal that I’m curled up in bed reading.

via Twitter Web Client

Since I can’t be at @stub tonight, I’ll wear my @stub Pub Trivia green sunnies avatar for the night.

Nice post on Ustream’s blog, “The Anatomy of a Successful Music Broadcast Event” http://is.gd/1Xmo

Finally watching last week’s Clarke & Dawe video on sub-prime investments. http://is.gd/1XkC

@Fush Oh, I was “joking”. This is what was on the ABC. http://www.helveticafilm… It’s on teh torrentz, apparently…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

@Fush OK, you win. Wasn’t that movie http://www.snurl.com/fon… on the ABC the other night? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

@andrewdotnich Ah no Zapf Chancery is a cliché. A far better one is Aldo Novarese’s Stop. http://is.gd/1Xhu

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

Listening to this episode of “The Goons” right here –> http://is.gd/1Xhd “The Great British Revolution”

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewdotnich @SnarkyPlatypus Oh undoubtedly our current universe is Comic Sans.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@andrewdotnich Computers are better than typewriters, we should be able to make a new physics with DIFFERENT TYPEFACES!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@andrewdotnich The Goons’ universe had a much better kind of physics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@mhawkins1970 Hmmm… I dunno whether a picture of coffee is enough. And @SnarkyPlatypus’ suggestion is just wrong.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mhawkins1970

No coffee in house. No wallet means no money to buy more coffee. This. Is. Serious.

via Twitter Web Client

@raena Yes, thankfully the bank still has my wallet. I assume they’ll deduct the usual $40 for any reason they make up before returning it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to raena

Incorrect sequence: 1 Leave suburb by train. 2 Remember wallet sitting on bank desk.

Work in St Ives is done. I await my private helicopter and connecting hovercraft. The 21st Century rocks!

@totalomnivore “Rick Astley”? No, never heard of him. You must be thinking of someone else.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to totalomnivore

@misswired Well my Twitterstream this morning … including http://is.gd/1X4v … is a fair representation of reality. Find your keys?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@totalomnivore “Rickrolled”? I haven’t the faintest idea what you’re talking about, sir!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to totalomnivore

@DrMiaow I doubt it’s related to the Facebook Trojan directly, but then all good malware is modular these days anyway. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DrMiaow

I’ve just been told that they’ve mentioned this Trojan.Blusod on commercial radio in Sydney just now. Widespread?

via Twitter Web Client

@eskimo_sparky Alas, I will not be doing @stub tonight, as my liver is sending me smoke signals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eskimo_sparky

@lzcd Heh! I should’ve saved a copy to see if “All your base belong to us!” is in there somewhere. Heck, I’ll just download it again. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lzcd

“Are you sure keep your computer exposing to cyber terrorists?” Yes, I am sure. [giggles]

via Twitter Web Client

Heh! Resuming from screensaver, it pops a “recovered from serious error” dialog. If you cancel it, you get another scary but cute warning…

via Twitter Web Client

… then it says, “oh hai, credit card details to register pls kthxbai”, and your money is pwn3d.

via Twitter Web Client

Cute. The trojan generates a fake BSOD as a screensaver, and installs fake anti-virus software warning of “3094 viruses on your computer”…

via Twitter Web Client

“Ladies and Gentlemen of St Ives, I present unto you ‘Trojan.Blusod’, the latest addition to your computers’ software.”

via Twitter Web Client

@RozP Hey, we must need to add in a Rockroll every now and then, to liven up proceedings. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein The “Blue Screen of Knowledge” is @eskimo_sparky’s, from memory, alas not my original thought.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Northbound, passing thru Artarmon. It still hurts. Reading a serious book is probably the wrong strategy.

via Cloudhopper

Well at least ignorance is wide distributed, both here http://is.gd/1WMh and here http://is.gd/3EI … [sigh]

@lewellyn I’m assuming the Cyber simulator is for running legacy petroleum industry and defence applications, so $12k is cheap.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@lewellyn Yes, “Desktop Cyber emulator” for “one PC is US$12,500 + optional US$4,000 for annual maintenance”. [giggles]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

RT @ChrisSaad: @alper Thanks for the video that explains the [US] presidential process http://is.gd/1YX4 Yes, another Common Craft effort.

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: The gentle desk day I didn’t get yesterday because I was at St Ives (projects to prod); evening gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.

@lewellyn Like long words? Try “Donaudampfschiffahrtselektrizitätenhauptbetriebswerkbauunterbeamtengesellschaft”! http://tinyurl.com/7clv5

Sorry, World, this tweet http://is.gd/1YVB has a typo. It’s the Cyber 173 mainframe. There’s no such thing as the Cyber 183.

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn I seem to recall the Big Thing about the Cyber 173 upgrade was pre-fetching CPU instructions from RAM, a very new idea then.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@lewellyn The Cyber 173 http://is.gd/1fk4 was an upgraded CDC 6600 (better pics) http://is.gd/1YVk 256k x 60-bit words, 25 or 40MHz.

@StuartLivesey If your laptop has a PCMCIA/Cardbus slot, you can get an additional graphics card for that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@cpanczak I didn’t even know it was raining, I can’t hear it inside ‘cos of anti-jet sound treatments. I feel cut off. I need to move house.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cpanczak

@StuartLivesey Yes, when at my desk the MacBook Pro has an external monitor plugged in for more screen real estate.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@StuartLivesey Or should that have been “Yes”? The two LHS laptops are clients’ there for the day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@StuartLivesey No the 2 blank monitors are Ubuntu file server (to be retired) and a spare. The right-hand laptop drives far-right screen.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@ApostrophePong You’ll like these fine pics of the Coronation of Tonga’s new King, George Tupou V. http://is.gd/1qOV

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@lewellyn Ah then you would have so loved programming a Cyber 183 like this http://is.gd/1YP8 IN ASSEMBLER! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@jeffsonstein Yes, the Large Hadron Collider has a certain erotic appeal. That link again: http://is.gd/1bR6

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@mspecht @trib In that sense, Brightkite is just Google Street View 2.0.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mspecht

@mspecht @trib World Domination 2.0 is when you get enthusiastic amateurs to do all the work and then you cash in at the end.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mspecht

@trib Yes, all those things are traditional for world domination. And the white cat should be long-haired and have one blue eye, one green.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Speaking of @ApostrophePong’s photos, these http://is.gd/1YLv should so be… spiked. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn Precisely. If I were planning world domination I’d have one of these http://is.gd/1bR6 or one of these http://is.gd/1YLd ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

Emerging. And I am not “Planning the world domination”, despite this photo by @ApostrophePong. http://is.gd/1YKs

via Twitter Web Client

@misswired Well, @ApostrophePong has the other pair. I am not The Keeper of Green Sunglasses.

@adrianlynch Did you just say, “Let them eat goats”?

@franksting The ABC has been doing very well on Wednesday night for AGES… strong line-up, new satires etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting Yes, “The Hollowmen” includes Merrick Watts of Merrick & Rosso fame. http://is.gd/1Xya

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@tdm911 Yes, at least @GreensMPs are feeding out current stuff, but still just standing there talking at us, not interacting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@mr_gadget LOL! No the glasses in my current avatar are from @stub Pub Trivia. See also @erkpod, @Fush, some others… http://is.gd/1Nc6

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_gadget

@franksting No, no older eps. The ABC only leaves one episode online a a time, can’t seem to get out of “weekly schedule” mentality.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Yay! “The Hollowmen” is downloadable now, tonight’s episode online already. See note attached to http://tinyurl.com/5jvwyq

via Twitter Web Client

@tdm911 Just found “50 Ideas on Using Twitter for Business” http://is.gd/1NgJ@Alcoa and @GreensMPs take note!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@tdm911 According to http://is.gd/1Xtz the original Batmobile has “Duo-Stereophonic tape deck w/ 6 Muntz speakers”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@Tarale Well yes it’s the crapularity of TV that dissuades me from buying a $200 signal booster. If only ABC put EVERYTHING on iView.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tarale

@Tarale @Nickhodge Thanks to poor TV reception here under 16R, we’ve been off pretty much all live TV. 80GB/month bandwidth FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tarale

@mhawkins1970 @ChaosNoir OK, I shouldn’t have started this discussion… “sanitary pad erotica”?
