Sitting at Circular Quay, noticing how beautiful it is at dusk, telling the seagulls to fuck off they’re my goddam chips.

@cpanczak Heh! I was station manager at 3D Radio 1994-95, so this explains why your name rang a bell.

@alicam OK, so it wasn’t a mistake when I saw petrol under $1 a litre? Quick! Let’s build a bonfire! (Who should be thrown onto it?)

I see Pancakes on the Rocks is still staffed by @ApostrophePong’s Thai mafia.

Battery charged. About to find a nice location in The Rocks where I can quench my thirst with, um, mineral water.

@riayn Well some people also only deal with things when they’re an emergency, with the result that everything becomes an emergency.

@paulwallbank Fortunately I could leave te laptop on the charger during my meeting. I have nice clients.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@SnarkyPlatypus I would strongly recommend that you insert a thermometer into the relevant orifice, just to check.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Meeting at The Rocks done. No time for Darlinghurst errand. Will check to-dos in this office quickly and then… loose in The Rocks!

@SnarkyPlatypus “Emergency memory loss” is an awesome concept, which we should promote heavily.

@mpesce Oh bah! Every tweet I tweet brings joy the entire world!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce @trevorcook No the joy of being in Crikey is being published with David Flint and Clive Hamilton.

Watching Entourage use 80% CPU as it sets “deleted” flag on 70000 emails. Looks like it’ll take about 2 hours. 1.5h of battery left. Oh.

Mobile. To Enmore Rd / Newtown station / Circular Quay station / The Rocks for a client meeting. Some tweetage en route.

@skinnyjeans @Nickhodge There is no such thing as a “Taurean inner change agent”. Taureans do not change. Ever.

Microsoft Entourage 2008 works damn well for sorting out massive mailboxes like this too. 18205 left to download.

@Dianne_ The bikini will need to fit 87cm waist. Cup size isn’t critical.

@kurokaze204 We have SpamAssassin/MailScanner on the hosting server, but client didn’t turn it on. Add Apple Mail, works for me personally.

@kurokaze204 Downloading to use efficient local spam filters / rules to winnow, and as a backup. Webmail means look at every email by hand.

Ah, Gentle User, yes your mailbox has indeed put you over quota. The 73,499 spam emails in there may be the cause.

In 18th/19th Century, people of good will built Great Institutions to better society. Now it’s all “How can I monetise this?”

@Nickhodge I think you should get some Christmas Antlers like I had last year. http://is.gd/4t92 @SnarkyPlatypus looks great in them.

@GreenJ It’s also lovely to be getting Crikey story assignments via Twitter. It’s very modern and with-it.

@GreenJ No probs, boss. I see Bernadette McMenamin is calling us all child pornographers again too. http://is.gd/bLPQ

@Nickhodge I had to write a p-machine when I did Comp Sci, and then a Pascal compiler for it. For a Control Data Cyber 173 mainframe.

@Nickhodge I had access to a Lisa once. But then everyone did. She had a nickname because of that.
