@trib But we got ANOTHER blackfella as Australian of the Year. http://is.gd/hcdF Isn’t that enough for you bleeding-heart lefties? ;)

ROFL! I’ve been using Google for the last week signed in as someone else! I’m gonna seriously screw the stats they’re collecting on him!

via Twitter Web Client

@trib I dunno that picking on Rudd for not following up the Australia Date change is that big an issue. He’s ACTED on little else either.

My Australia Day posts from 2008 include a picture http://is.gd/hc5g some words http://is.gd/oui and a new national anthem http://is.gd/mgk

RT @BiteTheDust: Multiple small fist shakes near head is “hurry up” in Ngaanyatjarra finger talk. If done at waist/hip level it means “Wait”

via Twitter Web Client

I think the number of people who had a response for my “double fist pump” question last night is all together too large.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. New Moon is at 1853 AEDT. We will all turn into cows. Be prepared.

via Twitter Web Client

Too much for me. Brain imploded. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

Should I ask what a “double fist pump” is?

via Twitter Web Client

@segdeha Let’s face it. Software development is one of the most boring things on the planet, and SVN its least interesting tool.

FFS, so many candidates for post-natal abortion!

As I buy my ticket, bus driver says, “Thank God! Someone who knows where they’re going!”

This bus is full of westie whitetrash.

Why are there no tuktuks? What sort of fucked up city is this?

@ApostrophePong has hiccups and is rather embarressed.

RT @segdeha: Gosh, I wonder why no one’s RTed my blog post about recovering from checksum errors in SVN? :-)

RT @kcarruthers: just realised I’ve been confusing the Pope with Capt Picard recently.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon’s photostream is just a wonderfully witty journey. http://is.gd/h8PM I smile muchly.

@kcarruthers True ADA’s female reference in anti-Catholic. COBOL then. One letter from “cabal. Opus Dei would love it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Watching this pub transform from a sunny family-friendly afternoon into a cud-munching-bouncer ID-checking hole of the night. George St FTL.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers I don’t think Perl would be suitable for the Vatican. Too practical, too individualistic, not enough ritual. Maybe ADA.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

RT @Jon_Seymour: @stilgherrian the pope could not possibly use a *nix variant - too many aborted child processes

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong’s first Australia Day as an Australian. http://is.gd/h8H6 How should we spend it? Not like this! http://is.gd/oui So how?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @andrewbarnett: @stilgherrian teh Pope uses IBM assembler on a 3090 mainframe

via Twitter Web Client

RT @joshsharp: @stilgherrian the Pope uses Linux, of course. Jesus preached open source.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Snipergirl: @stilgherrian he uses P++ and BibleScript

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers The Pope? So what programming language does the Pope use? And which development environment?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Paddy Maguire’s, George Street. All the bar staff are Irish, yet none of them have a fucking clue how to pour an ale. Cancel their visas!

That boy’s shirt said “KIss me, I’m shitfaced”. If I were too, I might. Symmetry.

@facibus BTW, I have not yet decided whether to do a “Stilgherrian Live” tomorrow, but if I had the giant inflatable ox… [moistens]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@fictillius Thank you for keeping us informed of all Amazon Gnome-related activities. http://twitpic.com/16w6 Your efforts will be rewarded.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@commuter_dirge There are reasons I knew you to be a man of quality.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

Let’s face it, if anyone knows how to improve the lot of a giant inflatable ox, it’s me.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus Hehe! No. If you are blind drunk then it’s compulsory to liberate (not “steal”) the giant inflatable animals.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus True, not only is it compulsory to be blind drunk to steal inflatable animals, but vice versa, as it were.

via Twitter Web Client

We must liberate the inflatable ox!

Loose on Sussex St, with @ApostrophePong taking pics. Little Hay St to Dixon St.

@JohnLacey @trib There’s a little discussion of vs framing at http://is.gd/fhsu which may assist.

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnLacey @trib These folks already imagine the Internet spouts porn at children unbidden. You DON’T want to reinforce their frame.

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnLacey @trib It’s not even about “the general populace”, it’s about changing minds of filter-supporters where they make a difference.

via Twitter Web Client

@ragnarok1971 @mediahunter You have skewered me, Sirs Yes, “Stilgherrian Live” is not about pleasing people. That’s another service… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@Taezar Y’know, a 24-hour production has the slight problem of taking, like, 24 hours to do and 48+ hours to prep.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Taezar

Hmmm… Australia Day “Stilgherrian Live” thoughts are either quite early or quite late. If I do it, won’t be able to please everyone.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I was Moroderised several times during the 1980s. Maybe if Hunters and Collectors had been produced by Moroder… [sigh]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Have I mentioned that I think Hunters and Collectors were shit?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus True. Social media is all about tools. And they’re all on Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

It’s not a song of inspiration. It’s a song of desperation. Another night wasted. A song of shared misery and defeat.

via Twitter Web Client

Dreary, awful song. Dreary, over-rated band. Only remembered because its rhythms match drunken staggerings before last drinks are called.

via Twitter Web Client

@djackmanson “Throw Your Arms Around Me” is only a suitable national anthem for the “drunken yobbo westie” demographic, sorry.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to djackmanson

@facibus One of my fave faux-cuisines, coined by the late Toby Wong (brother of Senator Wong): “Mr Wong’s Authentic Malaysian Duck Pizza”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

Reminder: We should all be singing Australia’s NEW national anthem. http://is.gd/mgk Approved by Kevin Rudd! http://is.gd/fp1L

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis très sain, je vous remercie. Je suis sentant des signes de santé de chaque orifice. Et toi?

@martinlau @zhasper @facibus Gentlemen, your minds seem to be in alignment. Well done.

@timdunlop Are you saying that politicians should not receive awards, or only not from governments of their own party? http://bit.ly/Q5u7

@jeffsonstein Ah! http://zemanta.com failed to find new bits because of a network glitch my end. AJAX killed by a Boeing 747 overhead.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein Hmmm… Algorithmic addition of “stuff” to your blog means you have the same stuff as others. Where’s YOUR unique view? FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein I was that http:/zemanta.com/ is about finding related content, but it seems not to be trying very hard.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein: BTW, I put http://is.gd/hcrA pinto http://zemanta.com/ and it found NOTHING. Not sure what it’s meant to do.

RT @jeffsonstein: Join the movement: Write the Australian PM and demand @stilgherrian be named “Deputy Australian of the Year”

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein Bah! My “record of excellence” isn’t “consistent”. It doesn’t fit into a nice neat middle-class category.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@kategroom A manager-mentor once told me you create traditions simply by repeatedly telling people what they are.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kategroom

@kategroom I think ANY date could be Australia Day. Attach the rituals and the rest follows. Works for Christmas-pinched-from-Pagans. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kategroom

@chrisberg Welcome to Twitter. Beware, Sir, my own Twitterstream is high-volume and a bit scary.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein LOL! If I ended up Australian of the Year that’d indicate we really were in deep poo-poo! ;)
