@dnwallace ROFL! Um your SL avatar pic on Flick says “This photo falls outside your current SafeSearch filter.” Do I dare press “Yes”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dnwallace

@Fifikins I think your choice of Bombay Sapphire as your blue avatar for mental health week is inspired. Or very, very wrong.

@ApostrophePong and I need a driver for a road trip to Cowra next Tuesday, possibly going late Monday and staying. Details to come.

@DavidFeng “Automatically censored due to the presence of excessive off-color language”? Wow, lucky that you don’t tweet like MY tweets! ;)

RT @kerryank: “@middleclassgirl Pull a goat’s what?”

via Twitter Web Client

Ah I see that Crikey DID publish my, erm, polite critique of Peter Faris’ rant about photographer Bill Henson. http://is.gd/3DO5

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Hey @DJPoyner asks if @SnarkyPlatypus is real or just “an even more twisted projection” of me. I can’t remember. Plz remind me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@DJPoyner “Is @SnarkyPlatypus real or is he just an even more twisted projection of yourself?” You’ll have to ask him, I can’t keep track.

@Maab @limburger2001 I wish to purge Miss Overbleach from my memory, if it’s all the same by you.

@lelak The fuck/kick Venn diagram has little overlap, unless you’re Gilles de Rais I suppose. http://is.gd/1N3F

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lelak

The Duke, finally some rationality. And, just as importantly, wine. In a moment, internettage.

via Cloudhopper

Oh hello, young man, yes of course you may have the vacant seat next to me.

via Twitter Web Client

Town Hall station. Ratio of people I’d like to fuck to people I’d like to kick is depressingly low.

via Cloudhopper

Yes, Miss Overbleach, your low-cut blouse is a huge success and we are looking at your breasts. Alas, they’re your only interesting feature.

via Cloudhopper

@SnarkyPlatypus I do indeed refer to The Pointer Sisters’ original. WTF are “Girls Aloud”? Should I worry that I don’t know? That you DO?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Moderate technical WINs prevail today. The lunch venue playing “Jump (For My Love)” is not one of them.

via Cloudhopper

ABC News report on Bangkok posted an hour ago has nothing new of substance but good backgrounder for non-Thais. http://is.gd/3Ga6

via Twitter Web Client

My understanding is that the 2 dead in Bangkok were a female protester (chest wounds) and a male killed by the car bomb. http://is.gd/3G9S

via Twitter Web Client

A Twitter search for “Bangkok” http://is.gd/3Etq reveals too many wankers like http://is.gd/3G6K and http://is.gd/3G6T … oh well.

via Twitter Web Client

Nothing really new from Bangkok since last night’s BBC report. http://is.gd/3E34 Troops deployed but most patrols currently unarmed. 2 dead.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Looking at the Bangkok situation before anything else.

via Twitter Web Client

Home. Nothing on Bangkok that Twitter can’t tell us. [exit]

via Cloudhopper

New narrative from BBC: Troops deployed in Bangkok after police fail for second time to disperse anti-govt protesters. http://is.gd/3E34

via Twitter Web Client

@coliwilso Yes @ApostrophePong and I are tracking @smartbrain and also http://is.gd/3Etq … discussing… current thinking: “routine coup”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

RT @kohsija: “In bangkok now teargas is just a toy.” @ApostrophePong agrees. Teargas is being polite: teargas is not gunfire.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Angkut: “Dear all, the political unrest in Thailand is limited in a certain area around the paleament [sic] in Bangkok only.”

via Twitter Web Client

RT @smartbrain: “Teargas really opens up your sinuses. Anyone with blocked sinus should come here.”

via Twitter Web Client

Going quiet while we try to figure out what’s happening in Bangkok. @ApostrophePong’s hometown, a city which has become key for me.

via Twitter Web Client

Surreal. Simultaneously tweeting tasteless jokes about child sexual abuse, live news of tanks in Bangkok, and Chomsky. Hello 21st Century.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @docbaty: http://tinyurl.com/4aczhs Fatal car bomb in central Bangkok.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Oh Noam Chomsky’s a wanker. Some spooks I know think he’s full of shit politically. But he was very important in the 1950s.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@josh909 I’ll point to one part of the dolly if you point to the other part. Can a friend take photos?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to josh909

Heads up! Tanks and gunfire in Bangkok. @ApostrophePong is just looking for the details now.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Ah, alas I did such a deep-theory Comp Sci major that an exam included being able to reproduce much of Alan Turing’s work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@mr_gadget Don’t worry, I love YOU in an even more special way than @limburger2001’s parish priest. (Explore not these damaged psyches.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_gadget

@kcarruthers Ah well I encountered Chomsky through Computing Science too. He created the theory underpinning all sane programming languages.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@misswired Well I can create the Wi-Fi. Sharing out a certain telco’s wireless broadband is remarkably successful. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@jeffsonstein Don’t mention cows. I grew up on a dairy farm. I know more about cows than you ever, ever, EVER want to know.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Fuck! Too many @stilgherrian things to reply to. I love you all. I love you all in that special way that you can’t ever tell anyone about.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers A linguistics dropout you say? Then if I say “transformational generative grammar” you are my slave, right?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Daylight Saving is bullshit. If you want more daylight to go to the beach just fucking get up earlier. Don’t fuck up everyone else’s clocks.

via Twitter Web Client

@misswired Ah! Evolution of language, you say? Then my (semi-cancelled) major in Linguistics might trigger some… oh what do I need to say?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@coliwilso Ta, Sir! Yes, I was cool for a brief period 1990-93, in a small pond called Adelaide. That was a very different life.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@coliwilso Oh within the realm of geekery there is an understanding of electronica. But we are (still / for the time being) a minority.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@coliwilso Oh, people who grok electronic music are the minority. I am perhaps overstating my need to “connect” with the like-minded.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@coliwilso I presented “Club Escape” on Triple J and was part of “The Core” magazine. See http://is.gd/3E2N and http://is.gd/3E40

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@coliwilso Well, Orbital http://is.gd/3E2H produced some of the greatest electronic music to come out of the UK ever, that’s all. IMHO YMMV.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@coliwilso Sorry to hear marriage wasn’t a golden land of honey and lacewinged nymphs as marketed. Can’t say more, @ApostrophePong is here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@limburger2001 @ApostrophePong I’m amazed 1. the staple somehow lodged INSIDE the power socket, 2. that it didn’t blow up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@coliwilso Did you just say “Orbital. Halcyon.”? Are you married yet?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coliwilso

@ragnarok1971 Yeah, that’s your first sexual experience, and you’re then sprung by your parents. No psychological issues there, oh no Sir!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@ragnarok1971 Should I mention that I know someone whose first sexual experience was with his own sister in the wardrobe, and “interrupted”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@DJPoyner The blueness is about @blueday2008 for mental health week, culminating this Friday.

via Twitter Web Client

@IanKath Yeah, as I said, I don’t normally do mass events, but mental health IS such a vital issue I do want to make the point.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanKath

@limburger2001 Yes, wherever two or three are gathered together in the name of geekery, you are welcome to bring a laptop, my child.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

BTW, those Dell monitors… http://is.gd/3oJY They arrived today, the Dell guy phoned and explained, and I’ll publish their words tomorrow.

@artywah “Is the blue edition X rated?” What choices do I have?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to artywah

@misswired Narelle has barred me from drinking any Wirra Wirra wines until I try every other “decent white” on the new winelist.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@erkpod Good idea. Yes, “Stilgherrian Live” this week will be The Blue Edition. Saves on all those other colour pixels.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, it’s a beautiful electric blue sheep. Absinthe cocktail? Yes please. The blue one is called an “opium”. It’s nice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The bar manager Narelle just hassled @ApostropePong and me for both having laptops out. She was brandishing a paintbrush at me.

via Twitter Web Client

@limburger2001 Me? Hogging all the crazy? Nah, there’s plenty of crazy to go around.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

@DavidFeng LOL! That tweet about the misplaced apostrophe was over a month ago! http://is.gd/3DTs Am I really that memorable?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidFeng

(And before anyone says it, yes, my mental health probably needs more attention than most. Go fuck yourself.)

via Twitter Web Client

I normally don’t change avatars for events, but is just too goddam important. Mental health deserves MUCH more attention.

via Twitter Web Client

@twitter OH FOR FUCK’S SAKE I HAVE TURNED OFF THAT ELECTION BAR SO MANY GODDAM TIMES! FUCKING WELL STAY TURNED OFF!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to twitter

Mobile. Twitterstream will reactivate once I’m on the train north.

@lnassar “Blue Day is a scam to sell more Prozac”? Hmmm… surely you’re not being even more cynical than me? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar Yeah but “Talk Like a Pirate Day” doesn’t really focus on what piracy was and still does. I get your point, but must rush now… :/

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar Oh, maybe too harsh of me there. Still, mental illness destroys people’s lives and sweet fuck all is being done about it.

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar “Blue Day isn’t THAT different from the Pirate Day shit”? Dunno many people who’ve killed themselves through lack of “pirate talk”.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers I’d love to have lunch in “the bush” but alas I think it’ll be a packed day at St Ives. My schedule is toast already. :(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

So much blue in my Twitter timeline is screwing with my colour vision but a far better use of energy than that Pirate Day shit.

via Twitter Web Client

For those who missed it, the sheep is blue to mark @blueday2008 this Friday, part of Mental Health Week.

@ragnarok1971 The Telstra tech “calling card” has slots for name, date/time of visit and reference numbers. All have been left blank. Slack.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

Telstra, I take that back. We’ve found a card in the letterbox saying you’d visited, fixed the fault. Card wasn’t filled in properly tho.

via Twitter Web Client

According to modem logs, line noise killing my ADSL2+ stopped around 1440 yesterday. Will Telstra bother to communicate back to iiNet/me?

via Twitter Web Client

And now to tackle the huge pile of comms in my inboxen to see how that shapes the day. This is not going to be pleasant. For anyone.
