Oh dear. That seminar’s presentation is in PoweProint. With bullets. And slow reveals. And everything it shouldn’t have. I am ashamed.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: US consumer confidence at lowest recorded level since records started in 1967 http://is.gd/eeua Well yes…

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe I should dust off the “Effective Comms” seminar I did for IBM Asia-Pacific about writing like an actual human.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh not just that article! Almost EVERYTHING written about telcos is full of moronic jargon and empty clches.

RT @M_Hickinbotham: Fortune: ‘The future of wireless is Down Under’. Profiles Telstra Next G. http://is.gd/eetL [Bonus Trujillo hagiography]

@andrewbarnett Actually I’m rather good this morning, the best I’ve felt all week actually. I’m hoping this is a Sign.

RT @andrewbarnett: It’s OK - after some shaking, netbank woke, threw up in a bucket, then got to work

via Twitter Web Client

Codeine FTW! (Oh… No exclamation marks, please. They hurt.)

via Twitter Web Client

RT @andrewbarnett: netbank is clearly still passed out on the back lawn :-/

RT @shelisrael: Here’s a real idiotic thought: Peace on Earth. Goodwill to humankind. That ought to leave some folk rolling in the aisles.

@ApostrophePong Good morning. “Ask not what 2009 can do for you, but what you can do for 2009”, you mean?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@seancarmody @jeffsonstein Hi chaps, and Happy New Year. :) I think I’ll have to do a generic HNY message to get thru the day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

Emerges, in a New Year. so, this is 2009. It’s quiet.

RT @josh909: Does everyone else feel that the world would be a better place without Andrew G? [Yes. Definitely.]

via Twitter Web Client

So, we’re watching “Razzle Dazzle”, and @ApostrophePong is threating to play all the songs on . Be afraid.

via Twitter Web Client

Going off-grid to enjoy @ApostrophePong’s Masaman Curry and whatever dodgy drinks are in the fridge.

@SnarkyPlatypus: “People who weren’t on the whiteboard were a: offended, b: a platypus and c: wanted an avatar as well.” http://is.gd/efSD

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Definitely mouthwash.

@Nickhodge Does not your son have, like, school to go to?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@firstdogonmoon Congratulations on an AMAZING series of avatars, Sir!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@Nickhodge I want to get away from being a sysadmin but then yesterday someone offered to pass me all his clients and like, good $. [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge One night I typed “halt” into the wrong Linux shell. Remote machine. Saturday night. Emergency sysadmin callout $600 kthxbai.

Because I am a grown-up geek, I am permitted to use “screenshot” as a verb.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Look, Nick! I said “Thank you, Windows Server 2003”. http://is.gd/efz7 Screenshot that one, you don’t see it every day!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Thank you, Windows Server 2003, for warning me “Shutdown” requires a human at the remote location to start the computer. “Restart” please.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge @StuartLivesey Not paranoia. As you both know, HDDs can fail totally without warning. This must be done NOW.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

Upgrading a client’s server backup software. Yes, you heard me. NYE. But do you really want to run with no backups running?

@ApostrophePong reports that the “Upsinthe Euphorizer” absinthe lemon soda pre-mixed drink tastes like mouthwash. http://is.gd/efjr

@ZebraBites The teapot has gone. Actually, there never was a teapot. People are going crazy at year’s end. Madness, I tell you!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ZebraBites

RT @ikostar: @stilgherrian Well the psychedelic pseagull was the best avatar on the whole internet. [Better change back then!]

via Twitter Web Client

@shanegold @ZebraBites There’s a story behind the teapot, but maybe for another day. Should I revert to psychedelic pseagull?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ZebraBites

@bengrubb Well the quoted speeds ARE maximums. Just like a car sold as “can do 180km/h” won’t actually achieve that on Parramatta Road.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb I think @duncanriley wants to talk about Next G to someone who isn’t on Telstra’s payroll. Real-world speeds, not brochurehype. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

Those of you with idle hands (and eyes) may like to look at @ApostrophePong’s selection of 2008 photographs. http://is.gd/ef21

@garthk What you are seeing sounds like the Czech-built L39 Albatros. http://is.gd/ef0i [scroll down]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

I don’t think it’s an obscure avatar at all!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @NathanaelB Australia has a two-tiered legal system too. All of us, and then Justice Einfeld.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Documentation complete. Desk not really presentable, but Care Factor plummeting. Can has gin?

via Twitter Web Client

@dizzystuff Your new avatar… That posture… Can you blow bubbles from that position? Just askin’…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dizzystuff

@TheJamesGlover I’ve been told to follow you. Poor bastard.

via Twitter Web Client

And now REALLY back to writing that documentation!

via Twitter Web Client

@M_Hickinbotham I haven’t really thought it through and my brain is elsewhere today, bu do remind me to come back to these thoughts!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to M_Hickinbotham

@ELROSS True, I have sympathy for anyone who is represented by Budd. :/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ELROSS

@M_Hickinbotham Agreed, decent mobile broadband helps SMEs. But most can barely use the tools they already have. Time to help ‘em catch up?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to M_Hickinbotham

@waferbaby If you keep seeing me on King St (where I am many days) you should so more than just look. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to waferbaby

Enough frivolity and plummeting consumer confidence! Time to write some documentation. Baxoon.

via Twitter Web Client

@ELROSS Ah! The Special Bitter must be dishwater with Angostura. [nods] Now I understand!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ELROSS

@ELROSS @seancarmody Recommending Coopers over Fosters? I’d recommend stale dishwater over Fosters. If one could tell the difference.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ELROSS

@zbender Oh the core premise is OK: Next G is certainly a good network. But for Fortune it seems a bit of a light touch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zbender

@M_Hickinbotham If we ran a diff between that Fortune piece and your original media release, how many changes would it reveal? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to M_Hickinbotham

@ApostrophePong Nah we get those guys t handle all the t-shirt-making and we just take royalties.

@ApostrophePong To link to SBS media you can’t use http://is.gd ‘cos it don’t handle the in the URL. :/ Use http://tinyurl.com

@andrewbarnett You suspect wrong. I would never endorse @thefuckingpope. We are all popes. All hail Eris!
