@wolfcat Yes, @SnarkyPlatypus has a special place in my menagerie. It’s specially reinforced and has a hose attachment thingy.

Selfish prick Queenslanders evict homeless croc. http://is.gd/5jB0 (But is there anything you can’t do with gaffer tape?)

OMFG! My Tweetstats have gone berserk! http://is.gd/j1Y Got that? THEY have gone berserk. I, on the other hand, am perfectly normal.

@trib Well, yes, webcam and Cam Twist software alike are limited to 4:3. Ustream is now offering 16:9 streams, tho, but dunno resolution.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib Yes, “Stilgherrian Live” is made in 4:3. Well, for the time being… ;)

@Lafinboy Not so much Cary Grant movie: too much light, the music funkier rather than mellow But that’s convinced me it’s a cocktail next.

Continuing to sip a gin & tonic at the Concourse Bar, Wynyard Station. Gently bubbling music and conversation in the background.

via Twitter Web Client

@m0nty For “Stilgherrian Live” I use Cam Twist for video mixing, Audio Hijack Pro & Soundflower for audio mix. I think I blogged links once.

Knock-off drink at the Concourse Bar, Wynyard Station. It’s not glamorous, but that’s the point. It’s relaxed, not full of drunk traders.

I has the Success Whale! My Darlinghurst client has taken good care of him. Well, they sat him on a shelf. He survived.

via Twitter Web Client

Wrapping up at the Darlinghurst client’s office. Have I covered everything on today’s checklist? Do I care enough to care?

RT @PeterBlackQUT: the wall street journal is preparing a piece on the proposed clean feed

I’m at the easternmost side of the white desk, leaning slightly back in my chair, in the inhale part of a breath. http://bkite.com/zomfgwtf?

Tweet 11,000. Significant? Not in and of itself, perhaps, but it’s happening at a time of Significance. You’ll hear more… soon enough. :)

@riayn I don’t think the comments were EVER open on that article. I may be wrong. It’s just bizarre though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to riayn

@michaelmeloni Right. Aust Women Online’s idea of “rational debate” is a screechy bulk email calling people “stupid”. Works for me. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

Meanwhile @mpesce’s take on the Internet censorship debate is up at ABC Unleashed. http://is.gd/5haJ

via Twitter Web Client

Last night I criticised Aust Women Online for their hypocrisy in http://is.gd/5cw1 Check their “rational debate”! http://tinyurl.com/68cyp9

@fabicus The problem when you say “you could go the full goatee” is that I can’t help but visualise farm animals. And it’s not wholesome.

@trevorcook Nice piece: “Newspaper: So, let’s pretend the Internet doesn’t exist” http://is.gd/5nS5 Now pls fix the typo in my comment. ;)

Wow. Japan sacks its air force chief after he says Japan wasn’t an aggressor in WWII. http://is.gd/5nzD

Sat plan (well, yeah): Potter around; 1200 Apollo goes to the vet; write essay for MEAA’s “The Future of Journalism” report; then dunno.

RT @deanlk: “I’d say a few rungs higher. Minor net celebs get cached. BB contestants instantly forgotten.” But EVERYBODY gets cached.

@retrogrrl @limburger2001 Ta. I’ve had more positives from that article than any other in Crikey so far. I’ve done 33. http://is.gd/28pR

via Twitter Web Client in reply to retrogrrl

@limburger2001 Thanks. Yes, phrases like “the pointy-steel-pokey thing” really do make me a “serious journalist”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to limburger2001

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: “You’re a minor internet celebrity tho. That puts you on the rung just below the first person voted out of Big Brother.”

via Twitter Web Client

Oh noes! My Crikey article “Conroy thoroughly tangled in his own Rabbit-Proof Firewall” [cough] escaped from the paywall! http://is.gd/5n51

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus How DARE you ignore my desperate pleas for attention! [sulks] [makes Conroyesque duck’s-bum mouth-pucker gesture]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Excellent. With free Internet access you can read what we’ve all been saying about Senator Conroy!

@Colgo The key is that the API (application programmers interface) is openly documented, conforms to simple standards.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colgo

@Colgo Twitter has an API http://is.gd/3xVf so anyone can directly interrogate the database of old tweets. Tweetstats uses that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colgo

He can’t be that damaged. He keeps eating, hobbling around demanding attention and wanting to be let outside. Probably just broken. Idiot.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. Looking to see when the vet opens so we can take Apollo and his swollen leg to get x-rayed or whatever they’ll do.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, computer away time… I’ll stay off-grid once I get home too… [exit]

I choose NOT to alight at Newtown on Hallowe’en since it’ll be full of wannabe gothlings who I’ll want to kick repeatedly. With a knife.

@middleclassgirl Heh! Yes that Saturday evening Tweetstream http://is.gd/4vNu was kinda fun. I re-read it tonight and enjoyed it.

Catchphrase humour IS the humour of pointless drunk fat blokes in urinals.

via Twitter Web Client

@Lafinboy Well “The Wedge” made a whole series out of the same 3 jokes repeated over and over again. “Little Britain” too. [yawn]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Lafinboy

@middleclassgirl “Poignant?” There’s nothing poignant about Wynyard Station. It is, as I say, a giant urinal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@neerav Fuck! My Follow Cost http://is.gd/42oY is “only” 3000-odd milliscolbes now, but it just said I had a “nuclear follow cost”! ;)

Despite the recorded announcement 724 times “The next train on platform 6 will not stop here” she still asks, “This one doesn’t stop?”

via Twitter Web Client

“Hey! Listen! [giggle] See who’s on this one! Hurry, man, and I’ll get the other one and beat youse! HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Oh, FFS!

via Twitter Web Client

“I reckon you’re gonna catch that one, and you’ll just miss this one! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Eureureureureureur!” So fuckin’ funny, yes.

via Twitter Web Client

Like most urinals this time on Friday, there’s a couple of fat drunk blokes thinking their meaningless sentences are the height of hilarity.

via Twitter Web Client

I know I’ve said it before, but Wynyard Station is really just a giant urinal with train tracks running though it.

via Twitter Web Client

The time has come for me to perform some sort of geographical transform. I’m hoping it won’t hurt. Well, that it won’t hurt ME.

@ragnarok1971 Exactly. I am as precisely normal as Kate Winslet. In many ways. In fact, has anyone seem us both in the same room? SPOOKY!
