They are certain that we would have chosen him named differently, didn’t you?

@jeffsonstein For some reason the two birds we have are styled the “Indian mynah” and the “noisy miner”. Foolish consistency, hobgoblin etc.

@kcarruthers Well I have been reliably informed that I am Cleopatra, Queen of the Nile! Revel in the glory of my barge!

@middleclassgirl Her has excellent suggestions! Dative FTW! http://is.gd/4oPk Tho personally I’m a fan of the subjunctive. http://is.gd/4oPn

@jeffsonstein In our back yard we have rainbow lorikeets, currawongs, kookaburras, skinks, striped marsh frogs and too many noisy miners.

@Maab Do I have any suggestions for them to modify that?

@barrysaunders You think the double-Tangara needs to be more than just gin. But you do like the idea of a 4-ounce drink.

via Twitter Web Client

I think more people should post not in the third person, but the second. “You are having a glass of voignier at The Duke.”

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Remember, “This side toward enemy” really IS an important safety tip.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Having a knock-off drink at The Duke after seeing @nickhac and accomplice along the way. We let simply anyone into our village.

One day I will try to change trains at Town Hall and not have my path blocked by the cud-chewers. Because Mr Shotgun will have done his job.

Uhoh. Commute. Poo.

Leaving Darlinghurst as the cockatoos gather for a noisy evening feed. Approaching squally weather makes them edgey.

@lnassar Agreed. “Energy” has been our bane for millennia. That and Oxygen.

via Twitter Web Client

@lnassar Yes, “Stilgherrian Live” is indeed a self-indulgent way of pissing away the world’s energy. And a waste of gravitons.

via Twitter Web Client

Digital photo frames are an abomination. Another self-indulgent way to piss away the world’s energy. Not much, sure, but it’s the attitude.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s just that @LacqueredStudio is still getting over the trauma of meeting me before his brain was fully formed.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh that tweet to the @GreensMPs was me suggesting how they should have done that tweet. Not MY opinion. Gawd.

@limburger2001 One of my current projects is with a practice of surgeons. I’m working in the reception area at the moment.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

Listening to the surgeons’ secretary patiently explaining to a caller that, no, she can’t give a quote for “a nose job” over the phone.

via Twitter Web Client

@LacqueredStudio Nol,, not the dating ladies bit. [shudder] The pointing out people’s character flaws bit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@emily_dickinson I havent thought of becoming a dominatrix. I don’t think I could claim the surgery on Medicare.

via Twitter Web Client

@LacqueredStudio But I AM surrounded by fools! FOOLS! Well I’ll show them! I’LL SHOW THEM ALL!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@LacqueredStudio: ‘A young lady I used to date thought she was “healing” people by telling them why they were inadequate.’ I COULD DO THAT!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@LacqueredStudio Sorry, are going for the St Paul role here? Mescaline on the road to… well, not Damascus but maybe Geelong.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@JonoH Telstra’s going have that blame problem facing them for YEARS. Being THE Australian telco brings them market share too though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Heh! I know it wasn’t aimed at me. I “buy” the line from iiNet, but they of course buy it from Telstra wholesale. Whose fault? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Tue plan (now that disasters have been covered): AM train the receptionist in new email system at Darlinghurst; PM billing etc; quiet night?

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong has a photo of our squid-cable at http://bkite.com/01Ucq Can see crap INSIDE that casing, no?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Telstra restored phone @ 0933, within stated period. Still, “stated period” = 2 days. “Cable fault”. Yeah, just after their work on Sunday.

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet, it’s still inexcusable that the interface did not EXPLAIN that we needed to contact a reseller to renew, give their details.

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet interface had no “renew” button ‘cos domains were in a reseller account, and that reseller no longer exists…

via Twitter Web Client

The Telstra cable outside our house is currently hauled out of the ground like a dismembered squid. Does it mean we’ll have phone/net soon?

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet, it seems so basic. User modelling, people! My task is to renew two domains. Did you not step thru this process during design?

via Twitter Web Client

(I am not looking for a “new” registrar. I have one, and procedures built around Enetica. Just astounded that TPP is so uselessly designed.)

via Twitter Web Client

@neerav I have a reseller account with Enetica, thoroughly recommend them. But this client left it too late to transfer out.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to neerav

TPP Internet, I have a credit card in my hand. I am ready. Why are you making it so fucking difficult?

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet, I do not want to look at smiling stock-photo people, I want to renew my client’s domains. NOW. The people I want to kill.

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #6: I log out, look for “renew” button. 3 different objects say “call now”… to the number you are “now” NOT answering.

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #5: The most prominent object INSIDE domain management interface is animated advertising for “easy domain management.”

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #4: “Our office hours are 8.30am to 6pm Monday to Friday.”

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #3. Call support 1300 665 491 first time, says “I’m sorry, your call was not answered, please choose another extension.”

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #2: “Renew domain” button takes you to domain management login page. Login, but there’s no “renew” button.

via Twitter Web Client

TPP Internet FAIL #1: Domain management interface does not load on Firefox or Safari for OS X, must boot Windows.

Emerges. Aches. Lack of sleep early in the week is a sucker but I would never, ever complain about something like that.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m knackered. I’ll leave @ApostrophePong to Wi-Fi to my MacBookPro thence NextG which has roamed to 3, since we have no ADSL2+. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH (I’m not in the mood for low-level geekery tonight, especially as our landline is completely cut and I dunno what you mean LOL.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@SnarkyPlatypus RT @jdub “eeepc 901 + ubuntu netbook remix == awesome. for your second hand recommendation pleasure.” You got one, @jdub?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@JonoH Enmore has always been a hell-hole for cell phones of all persuasions, on the boundary of everyone’s cells it seems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Ta for the tip, will try it in the morning. But why would we roam to 3 if there’s a functioning NextG cell? Or could a cell be down?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@SnarkyPlatypus Alegrya has an Asus EEE 900, I think , and finds it a handy beast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

At home in Enmore. No landline, no ADSL, (iinNet, but Telstra wire), and Telstra NextG is still roaming to 3. At least we’re online SOMEHOW.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Wow, can we get you runnin a Linux box? That would be nice. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

(I’m online now thanks to my Bluetooth to a Nokia N80 and Vodafone 3G uplink. Backups FTW!)

via Twitter Web Client

Still at The Duke but the Telstra NextG cell has failed? Roaming to 3 in Enmore? I sort of get a route, but 3 pings then it dies.

via Twitter Web Client

@plasmaegg I’m sure @nickhac’s Top 50 Australian Twitterati list helped the new-follower surge. http://is.gd/4lan And apparently I helped.

@middleclassgirl Sorting the tossers from the tossees, eh? Is that the sheep/goat axis, or another one?

@magia3e Thursday night is the regular “Stilgherrian Live” noght, but yes I have been known to do random editions whenever the mood strikes.

I am full of you waiting for Jo Koy wanting to perform for him at the Enmore Theatre. http://is.gd/4oPW [Fuck this is hard.]

@jeffsonstein @kcarruthers You’re wishing trouble telling us apart, aren’t they?
