Emerges. That wasn’t long, was it? Ah, the things I do for clients…

via Twitter Web Client

OK, the blue bar is indeed the answer to all my dreams. I am in love with a rectangle of pixels. Tomorrow (today) will be OK. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

Wondering is this new blue bar, getting slowly longer, is a sign that I’ve broken the back of this technical problem.

@BadTmy A truly tiny world. I was interviewed on ABC Radio this arvo, the network manager found out via Twitter. Must figure out who he is.

@callumj Sadly I have returned to that Windows Update hell just now. Registering wuauserv.dll and related has been no help.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to callumj

@BadTmy Some commenters didn’t like my Crikey piece. http://is.gd/2rxV One doesn’t get that I can’t be there all day to publish lunchtime.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timehhh

@BadTmy Your point about Ovum choosing to be there rather than being paid is probably true. Support a good client, plus learn stuff.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timehhh

@callumj Heh! It’s cool… I’m sure I’ll see it again soon enough, a lot of clients have had this problem but don’t yet realise it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to callumj

@callumj Ta for the hint re Microsoft Update and DLL registers. Will have to look out for that linkage. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to callumj

@BadTmy Cheers re Crikey article. At time of writing I wasn’t sure who paid Ovum to be there. ;) I haven’t had time to see what happened.

@StuartLivesey I’ve found Windows XP SP3 frequently prevents subsequent updates installing. Must uninstall SP3, install all bits manually.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

Home. Two work tasks to complete before day’s end. 1. Revise invoices so client can pay $Xk. 2. Download Windows updates to client computer.

via Twitter Web Client

@glittertrash It’s cool. I’ve survived Weds at The Sly Fox before, even the wet t-shirt competition. $7 absinthe cocktails FTW!

via Cloudhopper in reply to glittertrash

The Sly Fox. Uhoh.

via Cloudhopper

Oh. SMS should go to person not Twitter. Or be more interesting for random viewers.

Apologies to the ABC’s Paul Turton http://is.gd/2qQa for mis-spelling his name in a recent tweet http://is.gd/2qQd I should fact-check. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

There is no virus, but I am in Windows XP Updates Do Not Install Hell Without A Paddle.

via Twitter Web Client

@LacqueredStudio Well the ABC thingo is all over and done with now. :) Went quite well, I thought.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@StuartLivesey Gee that’s a subtle point about whether something was “republished” or just “linked to”. http://twurl.nl/svzgp1

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@StuartLivesey Yeah the process for how this happened is indeed interesting. http://is.gd/2qLY

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

I gather I’m on ABC Regional Radio with Paul Turtur at “approx 5.22pm” talking about the United Airlines Big Oopsie. http://is.gd/2qJF

via Twitter Web Client

Doing client invoicing while sitting at a client’s doing virus scans and rebuilds. Saasu.com makes life easier like that.

via Twitter Web Client

@LacqueredStudio That’s the news cycle, babe! 0925 keynote, 1010 speech emailed, 1145 Crikey deadline, 1330 Crikey emailed.

@lewellyn @gregdwyer Those aliens can be so, so cunning, I know. I’m glad to be able to help.

Oh cool! You too can stop alien abductions! http://www.stopabduction…

Excuse me, God, did I say it could be just 13C outside? Exactly who’s providing services to whom here?

via Twitter Web Client

Wed plan revised: 1300ish scheck out Oxford St client’s 2 x possibly-infected computers; still @SnarkyPlatypus gym & dinner evening I guess.

via Twitter Web Client

Just finished writing a piece for Crikey decoding Senator Conroy’s keynote from this morning.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus So, if Senator Conroy and I are soulmates, that’d make you…? No, let’s not think about that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@franksting Ta for linkage to the workshops which preceded today’s Digital Economy Forum. http://is.gd/2qhU

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Plan change. Just got a copy of Conroy’ keynote speech. Writing something about what I’ve been ranting about this morning.

via Twitter Web Client

@ssharwood has covered the small business mismatch thingo. http://is.gd/2q83 More evidence that you just can’t port US/European answers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

RT @dizzystuff: “Is it a leopard print satiny caftan, like the ones you can order from tv-guides? Because that would be full of WIN.” Sicko.

via Twitter Web Client

Too much information about RCDs. Residual-current devices. http://is.gd/2sIu Wikipedia, will you marry me?

via Twitter Web Client

@infrequent RCD problems can’t be the toaster. We don’t have a toaster. I’m guessing aircon. Nothing else was being switched.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sun10384

@tathamoddie @allisonr @LacqueredStudio Twin Towers example is apt. With death impending, choose less-frightful method? What would I choose?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tathamoddie

@andrewdotnich For “Stilgherrian Live” I think I might put a cheesy music loop on until I get home. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

@LacqueredStudio @trib Mark Day’s yarn is the same old blogger=bad journalist=good waffle, no new analysis. http://is.gd/2sHq Soylent Green.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@Mediamum I find it interesting that you keep comparing me with Rove McManus. We must talk some time…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

No, not a blackout. RCD triggered. Twice now. Wonder what’s being dodgy.

via Cloudhopper

Power failure, Enmore?

@LacqueredStudio Suicide in the face of impending doom isn’t unknown. Examples from WWII. I imagine it’s about being in control?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@Mediamum I’m working on more flexible ideas for “Stilgherrian Live”, with programs from a local cafe, actually. With inerview guest(s).

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

@Fifikins I thought I already pleased you? Endlessly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fifikins

Uhoh. evening schedule conflict. MCAP http://is.gd/2sBG from 6pm, speeches ~7pm, and “Stilgherrian Live” at 9.30pm. How will it all fit?

@firstdogonmoon This is an excellent time to remind everyone that Julie Bishop IS Samantha fox. http://is.gd/d6r

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

RT @firstdogonmoon: “Tool provides an elegant soundtrack to thinking about Sarah Palin and Julie Bishop. Not like that though, ewwww.”

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: Finish on client computer; 1100+ return same to Oxford St etc; 1600 chiropractor; evening http://is.gd/2sBG with @ApostrophePong.

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn Will your temptation be easier or more difficult to manage if I mention that the client is http://www.saxfetish.com …? [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

@glenmcfarlane Not quite sure what you mean by “taking one or he team” this time round, but this partic client is getting very good service.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glenmcfarlane

@lewellyn Actually, I’m “hiding” quite a lot from the Twitterverse, or at least choosing not to talk about it just now. ;)
