@jeamland “Virgin will give you 5GB/month + $520 call credit for $100/month”? Well, now all I need is the Nokia N96!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Agreed, iPhone tethering is bound to appear soon. I like less crap in pockets! Still, 3’s 6GB mobile for $39/month is appealing…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@middleclassgirl Yeah, I must be tired if I took that bait. ;) I am totally pwn3d.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

As it happens, Micah from Vodafone just called to see if I’m happy. No date for N96, but best data plan is their iPhone plan.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Current plan is a Nokia N96 (when they become available) to replace my N80. Good camera, swappable battery, tetherable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@middleclassgirl “Someone like you”? ;) Oh I’d have an iPhone if: 1. better battery life, 2. tetherable as 3G/HSDPA modem without jailbreak.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@ianlyons Hey, at least I didn’t DESCRIBE how I coped with the situation!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ianlyons

@middleclassgirl Well my phone ISN’T an iPhone, but it lives in my pocket so, yes, it goes to the toilet with me. So do my fingers and toes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

I really really really wish someone, anyone!, had remembered to buy toilet paper. (Yes, this is via SMS.)

@spinopsys Actually, the fact that @GreensMPs are here AT ALL is a bonus. Where are the others? Can they even use their computers?

via Twitter Web Client

@sealfur Yes, please keep me informed of all facts at all times. Crikey may even publish me again what I stop slagging off all journalists.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sealfur

@ocean “Twitter is very important. It’s the last social network you’ll ever need”? LOL! No, that’s different. That’s TEH TRUTHZ! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ocean

@sealfur [nods] I have nothing that “needs” me to explore Chrome TODAY, or this month even. Will await someone else’s summary.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sealfur

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah I’m still feeling fuzzy and tired, like exhaustion after a long fight. Must’ve been my dream about Her Majesty.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GreensMPs I really hope your presence on Twitter isn’t always going to be a deaf monologue. If it is, have humans come here too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreensMPs

@sealfur My gripe isn’t the Thing, but All Else Ceases when a Shiny New Thing Appears. I’m a fan of independent thought. Ask @kcarruthers.

Meanwhile, the closing date for anyone wanting to build Aust’s National Broadband network is 26 Nov. http://is.gd/2a5Om Sen Conroy says so.

@funkycoda And, even if Chrome IS the coolest thing since caramel-flavoured meth for children, IT WILL STILL BE THERE TOMORROW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to funkycoda

@mpesce @melissapierce Ah no, I think I’m still recovering from a fortnight of severe pain. My body says, “Oh! No pain! Let’s sleep!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Besides, dear Chrome Sheep, it’s Windows only and I use OS X and Linux. What use is it to me now? Nil. So piss off.

via Twitter Web Client

If anyone else tells me Chrome is “very important. It’s the next and last browser you will ever need,” I’ll kill them. Empty marketing hype.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers @SnarkyPlatypus Someone suggested @stub Pub Trivia for 3rd Wednesday each month, so 17 September, 2 weeks from today?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@SnarkyPlatypus The Caffeine Nap sounds counter-intuitive, but it works. http://is.gd/2a4G Sadly, I didn’t sleep for 15 mins but 2.5 hours.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK have just had a coffee, will try the quick catnap process to re-wake soon. Ciao.

@lewellyn Right, so something the world needs? Cheap water filter for 3rd World. Cure for cancer. End to corruption New… web browser. Wow.

The Twitties are fucked. Best tweet of the YEAR? Timeframe, people! This is LIVE! Where’s the daily/weekly contest? (Challenge to coders…)

@jeffsonstein I coined the term “feral goldfish” here: http://is.gd/asR And it’s cropped up elsewhere too: http://is.gd/zN3

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@oliyoung [smirks] I actually don’t even know what Google Chrome is. I figure if it’s actually important someone will tell me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@lewellyn I meant @dpn, and I have erased my mistake and re-tweeted. No-one will notice if we delete a few more tweets to cover our tracks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@dpn @lewellyn Your comments re Chrome are diametrically opposite. Discuss.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dpn

@leehopkins Every feral-goldfish geek on the planet is “testing” Chrome. [Tr: Installing, whingeing.] What value will you add to that? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leehopkins

@leehopkins Q: Why do you WANT Chrome? Because it serves a useful purpose? Or because it’s just some new thing you want want want WANT WANT?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leehopkins

I should SO be a finalist in the Twitties somewhere. I need a better pimp. http://is.gd/28uY

How to bring a Australia’s productivity to its knees: Release a new Google toy AND an iPhone model on the same day as a football final.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Step 1. Arrest all animators. Step 2. Distribute the hand puppets. Step 3. Declare me Tsar of Australia. [nods] Yes, this works.

RT @JasonBarnett RT @coldsnaplegal: Rage Against the Machine just took 200 people on unpermitted march toward river. Permit to walk?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus But you KNOW what happened last time I had Taurine. I mean, the ambulance arrived soon enough, but… sheesh! [Not a joke.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce Once I’m Tsar of Australia, ALL media will have to be performed live. Even newspapers and magazines.

Can’t I choose a different drug?

@mpesce @lewellyn Coffee AND sugar and all problems will be solved. And then I’ll be sick. No, I blame Spring. Spring and Peter Costello.

@firstdogonmoon Speaking of that Apollo mission, or maybe the other one, have you seen “Thanksgiving With the Kranzes”? http://is.gd/hKI

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

It’s decided, apparently. @stub Pub Trivia is Wed 17 Sept at the Marlborough Hotel, King St, Newtown. We must have the lovely Reta as host!

via Twitter Web Client

@metarand Mythbusters certainly do some fun stuff, and I’m all for a vaguely scientific method getting promoted.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to metarand

@SnarkyPlatypus Micah at Vodafone said unofficially they’ve heard “for Christmas” for their N96 deal, which in practice would be November.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers “Can’t you just collect ideas from hashtag & pop into the blog?” Perhaps, but then *I* have to do the work. [grumps]

Thurs plan: Yet another desk day “progressing” the too-many projects, possibly an errand to King St; “Stilgherrian Live” returns at 9.30pm.

@firstdogonmoon He was a Buddhist, and so was his owner. If either of them were cane toads they kept that fact well hidden.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

OK, “shooting fish in a barrel” is easy enough, but this takes it to another level entirely. http://is.gd/2bJg Thank you Mythbusters.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Wow my friend Bill had a cat called Rinpoche! Actually, he was Geshi Tashi Lodro Rinpoche.

I’m liking the nominations I’m getting for “Cnut of the Week”, keep ‘em coming! http://is.gd/29yf “Stilgherrian Live” is in just 14 hours.

@synapse It IS a small world. And, the person who was eventually hired for that job didn’t work out. So clearly I should’ve chosen you! LOL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mootpointer

@dnwallace Merci beaucoup. Actually, I wanted “Thank you, Sir” but Google says that’s “Merci Monsieur le Président” and I KNOW that’s wrong.

@kcarruthers Mobile optimisation of my website http://stilgherrian.com? I rely on http://tarskitheme.com for that, maybe I should prod them.

“Fine & fairly warm.” Thank you, George Orwell. http://is.gd/2ayD He was a journalist, not one of those awful bloggers, so no complaining.

I haven’t been watching . Have they got anything with a chance of averting the Obamageddon? Or are they just beating up journalists?

@enneff The only sensible response to the security guy is “All WHAT ‘terrorism shit’?” The man’s clearly paranoid.

Now I feel all left out ‘cos “everyone” is watching and I just have to IMAGINE the World of Incontinence. [sulks].

@mpesce It’s true, I tell you. I’d have to spend $200 on a signal booster. That buys an awful lot of beer. Almost 3 days’ supply!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I would join you on ABC1 but there is a conspiracy to prevent me watching broadcast television. Probably a good thing.

@earleyedition Yes, @Greens is rather lame. You think they’d clean up after themselves. ;) And not “testing” Twitter but “evaluating” it.

@SnarkyPlatypus Well you can always get an N96 on the “grey market”… I’m sure eBay can provide something labelled “N96”.
