@thetowncrier Agreed. Saw “Frost/Nixon” yesterday and it’s awesome. And funny. Great moofie.

@garthk Hamas and humus are not the same thing, right?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@seancarmody Some words are innately funny. http://is.gd/dVRi “Hovercraft” isn’t on the list but it should be. “Eels” was icing on the cake.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@JohnCleese The consensus seems to be that it is INNATELY funny to say “full of bees”. I, however, blame YOU and Rowan Atkinson personally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnCleese

@franksting It may be “SOOOO wrong”, but not as wrong as http://santasm.net ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Now, is it innately funny to say “full of bees”, or only when @JohnCleese or Rowan Atkinson say it? http://is.gd/dVJq

@ecoknowgrapher Thank you for your compliments about my Christmas Message too, Sir! It is going to be an annual tradition now.

@SnarkyPlatypus @Nickhodge AsiaVision is going to be SO FULL OF WIN! http://is.gd/dVzs Like that msuic video over dinner last night.

@garthk I have already copied the vid to another drive. I want it to take up moar lesseror spacez on that drive.

@kcarruthers @franksting I think it helps if you also nominate at @shortyawards so @firstdogonmoon makes the finals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Oh. I can’t log into Microsoft Live Messenger. That’s gotta be a bonus.

@seamus Wow the Modbook is a rather impressive-looking concept! Turn your macBook Pro into a tablet! http://is.gd/22DD

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seamus

@Tarale And there is already an Apple tablet. It’s called the iPhone. ;) Want more surface? Glue a few together. Steve will love you for it.

@Tarale Evolution is all about niches. Niche markets are good. One Product To Rule Them All is old-fashioned.

@klintron [shrugs] Tools for jobs. There’ll be lotsa folks who bought OLPC XOs who end up hating them ‘cos [surprise!] they’re not 6yo.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to klintron

(There seems to be a lot of stuff in the IT world which, unless it reaches 95% global market share, is tagged “failure”. Like cancer.)

via Twitter Web Client

@klintron In what way as the tablet PC “failed”? I have clients who use them as an essential part of their workflows.

@Nickhodge Dear Mr Hodge. I said “Sennheiser” not “Spandau” http://is.gd/dUXZ kthxbai. Tho a Sten gun… http://is.gd/dUYd

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

If I dismantle this Sennheiser microphone, will I be able to put it back together?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge The WD HDD is now Apple format. Time Machine is backing up my MacBook Pro not for the first time ever honestly. That’d be slack.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

New blog post: “Gname the Gnome!” http://is.gd/dUzy Very, very important stuff!

via Twitter Web Client

@monnie Yes, I may well burn the printer. That’d make a good video actually! Toxic as all fuck though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monnie

@TwoDogs Oh I TRIED selling that Lexmark printer on eBay a while back. Not a single bid.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to TwoDogs

Oh you losers Western Digital! Your terabyte My Book drive was formatted as FAT? No wonder you didn’t like my 8GB video files! LOL!

via Twitter Web Client

You can’t even give away Lexmark printers, it seems. And who can blame them?

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwallbank Please don’t get me started on Vista, @Nickhodge might be watching and he won’t enjoy what I say. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

Does anyone want a Lexmark Z611 inkjet printer? “New” in box? Well, a couple years old. It was a freebie from some promo, sitting unused.

I am glad an unexpected error occurred. I wouldn’t want you to expect errors to happen.

@alicam @RuthEllison I think Orwell was somewhat obsessed with recording the minutiae of daily life. So were many then. Like logging IRC. ;)

@JonoH so what are you saying? That you’d like me to take care of the Spain trip for you? Oh no problem, man, when? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@susan_m Oh Bindi’s harmless. If a croc is to be released, point it in the general direction of her mother.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to susan_m

@garthk @jdub So what do your brains have in common that you had foreground/background swap when looking at my avatar?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@JonoH Oh it’d be easy to round up the Aussie Twitterers… just grab a couple of those Cessna Citations you love so much. And gin. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

RT @garthk: @stilgherrian, my eyes are falling out. I was reading your avatar background as its foreground. Ow ow ow. Ow.

@earleyedition I appreciate the alleged pic of me and @Colgo being intimate, but http://is.gd/dXn6 clearly shows a pigeon, not a seagull. ;)

@Nickhodge [smirks] Yes, @PeterBlackQUT and I have met a couple of times and we both pretend to have enjoyed it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@PeterBlackQUT Yes, when I need psychological advice I’d naturally turn to a… lawyer. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterjblack

@kcarruthers Yeah lemurs may be cute, but if I just took my advice from whatever it was that was cute then my life would be… oh… wait.

@kcarruthers Of course I didn’t miss your irony. I’ve been nominated for an award in irony. http://bit.ly/T8KF

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@kcarruthers Oh noes, is someone ELSE confusing “authority” with “popularity” or “well-linked”? “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know.”

@fictillius Oh. alas, the only response I can think of is unprintable. Even by my standards. Maybe I’ll talk about seedless grapes instead.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@fictillius Yeah the extra ” ” should be OK. Unless you’re gay.

@fictillius Yeah that last tweet needs work. And an extra space. Still, I like your koala.

@firstdogonmoon You’re number 5 nominee for the Shorty Awards design category now. http://is.gd/b4Z5

@brandstaetter Some news services choose not to use the word “terrorist” because it pre-judges people as guilty under anti-terrorism laws.

There are many strange categories in the Shorty Awards. http://is.gd/cZnm I am certain to win one of them, should I be [cough] nominated.

@Nickhodge Exactly. @mpesce will come back from his afternoon granny-nap and bewilderment will set in. Early-onset dementia is so sad.

So, Outlook XP on old computer, you’ve decided to crash. I hate you. I hate @SnarkyPlatypus too, but he has other uses so don’t tell him.

@garthk Oi! Just because I criticised your parenting skills that’s no reason to allude to certain repressed memories on Facebook!

@SnarkyPlatypus The answer to your question http://is.gd/e2vA depends entirely on HOW inappropriate the people were. And the bees.

@SnarkyPlatypus No, the number three is not significant. It was just for visual balance when I was composing the shot.

@SnarkyPlatypus The black ibises are the annoying distractions which distract me from my Mission. The cheese and tomato sandwich.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@posty Do I wake up and immediately start tweeting. No, I piss first. But then I need to check the status of the world. Twitter is fastest.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to posty

Here is a picture of Bert Newton http://is.gd/e2en and his Wikipedia page http://is.gd/e2dN and here is a video http://is.gd/e2g8

via Twitter Web Client

The sandwich was yummy. My heart attack went away. And then I woke up. And that is the end of my dream. The End.

via Twitter Web Client

But while I was waiting for them to make the sandwich, I was harassed by three black ibises. Do they even have black ibises?

via Twitter Web Client

So I stopped at the roadside stall for a toasted cheese and tomato sandwich. Hey looked really good and had filo pastry instead of bread.

via Twitter Web Client

It was a bright, sunny day. “Shit! I don’t have time for a heart attack,” I thought. “That’s HOURS in hospital! I have to find Bert Newton!”

via Twitter Web Client

So I went looking for Bert in the parklands near the TV studios, except I started to feel my chest pounding and my left hand tingling.

via Twitter Web Client

I was the floor manager, and Bert was nowhere to be found. Someone said he was drunk. I said “Der, of course he is. I’ll find him.”

via Twitter Web Client

It’s the very first interview with Obama after he becomes president, and everyone was questioning the choice of Bert, “Old Moonface”.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. I Had A Dream. And the Dream was about Bert Newton. And Barack Obama.
