Post-dinner conversation: dealing with the prolapsed hernia. What has God wraught?

I’ve just been accused of having short-term memory problems, and if I could remember by whom I’d hit them.

@paullyoung now transferring to Crown on Goulburn / Elizabeth, pass it on.

He’s slowing down, all talk. If it kicks off my priority ain’t Qik.

via Twitter Web Client

A drunk mouthing off to the driver. It may kick off. Passengers ready to help.

Wondering whether to involve myself with The Incident on the bus.

via Twitter Web Client

Departing Enmore for ATM on Enmore Rd then some sort of transport mechanism to the city for @paullyoung’s bridge circle at the Civic.

@BrendanB No, http://is.gd does not handle in URLs at all. Have to use something else.

Is the fact that I can read and debug DNS zone files a good thing or a bad thing?

Ah, Sydney is ALL CLASS! http://is.gd/eFax HAT-TIP @mgherman.

RT @GaryPHayes: Viral that sums up Adelaide succinctly iSpiderman, by recent co-speaker Dario http://twurl.nl/o1gfmj [This. Is. Superb.]

@ApostrophePong http://mylanguage.gov.au has a support note about Khmer, but only for Windows. Not there yet!

@facibus Librarians are nothing but trouble. They gather up all sorts of knowledge and then let people look at it. They’re evil.

@cameronreilly Heh! Yes, there’s always a “nice” chicken-or-egg problem with multilingual resources.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: This is not Adelaide - we do not solve our problems by performing a sequence of bizarre, yet intriguing murders

via Twitter Web Client

@paullyoung I think I WILL join you for drinks tonight. The gods know I need a drink after today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paullyoung

Excellent. http://mylanguage.gov.au is a new directory of Internet resources in Australai’s 60 most common languages. Not just govt stuff.

@SnarkyPlatypus Kill them. Kill them all. You know you want to.

RT @franksting: [The hoax article] is still up on Quadrant website http://tinyurl.com/74u6r6

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod Still reading the background, but Quadrant’s response at http://tinyurl.com/9u6s52 should be a hoot.

@zhasper Alas, I only pass on Crikey tech blooper reports. I’m just a contributor. @crikey_news may be better, or email subs@crikey.com.au

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jamezpolley

Crikey’s lead today is about right-wing magazine Quadrant being caught publishing a hoax story. Fun. http://is.gd/eEqW

@saline [smirks] The Dalai Lama? The “Bono of Buddhism” himself, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to saline

I would now like everyone to sum up their entire political worldview in one naive slogan of 140-characters or less. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Of course, with people’s discretionary spending dropping, less will be spent on non-vitals, and the arts companies will get desperate.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod We hardly need to piss away more of our limited funds on promoting entertainment.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

@Skigod You’re missing the point. We ALREADY have a surfeit of arts, writing, performers, music, more than anyone could ever experience.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

Unemployment to double? Transport overloaded? Water supply overloaded? “Oooh! Let’s promote the fireworks!” Makes Nero sound responsible.

via Twitter Web Client

@Skigod Yes, I am a cynic, and wear the label as a badge of honour. Problems facing Sydney? “Lack of entertainment” is not one of them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Skigod

I tell you, arts administrators and events promoters are multiplying like fucking cholera in this city. And about as useful to society.

via Twitter Web Client

Wow. http://vivacity09.com/ Another promotion of Sydney arts and music festivals. Like we have such a fucking shortage of indulgent shit.

@auntie_abc My censorship material is at http://is.gd/4XCK, my Crikey stuff all linked from http://is.gd/28pR

via Twitter Web Client in reply to auntie_abc

@ragnarok1971 Ha! No, you stress the chilli plant thru under-watering or severe pruning, triggers extra capsaicin production in defence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@auntie_abc A moral panic re censorship won’t work, as it’s too abstract for anyone but the cognoscente to grok.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to auntie_abc

@auntie_abc I’ve written a lot about this previously. I’ll have to do a “story so far” piece I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to auntie_abc

@auntie_abc “Why are govts focussing on the net as the problem re child-p*rn, copyright, etc., but not perps?” Moral panic by Family First.

@fictillius I shouldn’t have to “work out how tom play the Telstra support game”, though, they should do their goddam job right. ;)

@Matt_Tulk I have yet to need to call Optus (Virgin) support, but will be reporting the next IP dropouts in detail.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

RT @martin_english: @trso to close down the NZ tax department, you’d just accuse them of file-sharing ? lol [That’d seem to work, yes.]

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Glad our chilli crop is fiery. Then again, I have used The Technique to maximise heat. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@Matt_Tulk But in a big organisation, parts can be good, parts bad. See Telstra, Next G, and BigPond “support” respectively. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

NZ introduces anti-file-sharing law where mere accusation gets your Internet connection cut, no appeal. http://is.gd/eIJe

via Twitter Web Client

@Matt_Tulk Actually I do use Optus’ 3G network, via Virgin Mobile. It’s shit. Choosing it was a mistake.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

@agit8 Interesting-looking projects at http://agit8.org.uk/ so I may have to explore. Ta.

@MarketingMag It does say “marketing” in your name, but I will follow back anyway ‘cos there does seem to be a human in there. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MarketingMag

@MargaretSimons But if you’re not the hoaxer, that means there’s a second person, which makes it… A CONSPIRACY! YOU COMMUNIST! ;)

Emerges. So far so good. The first 2 minutes of today have been successful.

I’m home and @paullyoung and his friends have been left to their own devices.They’re dangerous.
