Sat plan: Potter for a bit; 1130+ Darlinghurst client to merge two Exchange servers into one, amongst other things; relax when done.

@einspruch You’re quite right. Whenever you can’t remember who a particular woman was, there’s a 73% chance it was Pauline Hanson.

@ideogeny Yes, I know Zern Liew very well. http://eicolab.com.au/ He and I have worked together off and on since 1995.

@GreenJ We’re like Leonardo DiCaprio and that woman, whoever she was, in “Titanic”.

@tynanbryant Re http://is.gd/iERD, you should check http://is.gd/iERY because you’ve clearly got a long way to go http://is.gd/gMmk ;)

@GreenJ Just think: At this very moment, you and I rule the world. Except possibly for that Obama chap. And maybe Putin.

Emerges. An early start for a Saturday, but there’s work to be done, details of which will emerge later.

Home. Tired. Going off-grid as I have some work to do tomorrow (Saturday). Yeah, I know… [exit]

@gordonrenouf I’m not arguing that “pirate” isn’t emotive, just that it isn’t a recent invention by the music/film industry. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gordonrenouf

With @ApostrophPong, going… to Enmore Rd, apparently. And then… beyond, he says. I think he’s fibbing. Mobile.

via Twitter Web Client

The word “pirate” has been used to describe copyright-violators for more than a century! http://is.gd/iA6L My objection subsides. Slightly.

@Nickhodge Wow. The Findon Hotel, Adelaide. Class venue, Hodge! Check the photo! http://is.gd/iA2x Opposite a funeral home, I see.

@neuraxon77 Huh? “Fat cells use sensory nerves to feed information to the bra”? What sort of weird underwear is this?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Karaoke? Where? When? I shall put pants on even.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@einspruch Sir, most of us took lots of drugs so we didn’t have to remember the first half of the 1970s. Please don’t undo this work.

@awrd Why doesn’t the ABC have like a cheap-arsed Netbook in each TARDIS so people can see the presenter? Piss easy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to awrd

@einspruch No, sorry, yodelling, falsetto, flute and random shit-stoned drum solos all in the same song is FAIL! ;) http://is.gd/uI2

@servantofchaos What? Social media people have SALARIES? I thought all they did was meet for coffee and go to conferences! http://is.gd/izWa

via Twitter Web Client in reply to servantofchaos

@charispalmer I have a couple angles for that story on Twitter and corporate security if you’re desperate. :) I won’t swear.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to charispalmer

@raywelling What’s most funny about that review of the iFart app is the serious tone of the presenter. http://is.gd/izS8

via Twitter Web Client in reply to raywelling

@einspruch Correct. “Russian spammer Vardan Kushnir was found bludgeoned to death in his Moscow apartment” in 2005. http://is.gd/izRA

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

@einspruch Actually anti-spam laws resulted in a takedown of a major botnet and 60%-odd reduction in spam in…October, was it? They help.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to einspruch

January saw a 120% increase in email globally. 97% was spam or contained malware. http://is.gd/izP4

And, the video of 4 x iPhone Ocarina players doing “Stairway to Heaven” referred to in that piece. http://is.gd/6vYe There is no God.

@newsbee @TRON_Lord Damn, you were right. It put me to sleep too. Still, a nice day for a siesta. I’m back now.

via Twitter Web Client

Trying not to fall asleep after lunch. Listening to Rupert Murdoch’s address to analysts helps. Possibly. http://is.gd/izco

@SnarkyPlatypus I KNEW IT! Julie Bishop is one of the 33.5 Signs of the APOCALYPSE! http://is.gd/iyXw

RT @rbbrown: My Crikey story on Twitter (probably not actually interesting to people who already use it, but whatever) http://bit.ly/2XW4

via Twitter Web Client

@jg_rat I can’t help but think that “Brazilian judge” would be a job many of your readers might enjoy. “I give 9 points.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

If you just can’t get enough of me, I’m on @R_Chirgwin’s podcast “A Series of Tubes”. http://is.gd/iyI1

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Yes, it is mekhong. :) And it’s not at all dangerous, no Sir.

via Twitter Web Client

Fascinating. My drab tweets about food and alcohol generate the most responses. Thai whisky = whisky made in Thailand. Olives are a mixer.

via Twitter Web Client

@ebbye This is pathetic: I am following you back because your cat is named Hemingway. I need a life.

via Twitter Web Client

@rbbrown You writing about Twitter? Us “famous”? Bah! I already write about Twitter and I’m better than “famous”. I’m “interesting”!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

Is it really the case that the only food in the house is olives and Thai whisky?

via Twitter Web Client

Sorry, Random Caller, I have more respect for my family and friends than to try to sell them discount electrical goods for “vouchers”.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @middleclassgirl: There is a “economy” option called the “VD Experience” , I believe. [Well that relates to m earlier tweet…]

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl @SnarkyPlatypus Sadly “The V-Experience” upgrade was sold out, so we can’t get THAT up close & personal with The Veronicas.

There are a thousand ancient Greeks loose on this train.

@Aussiemandias No, @GuyKawasaki’s profile says “Online magazine editor”. [shrugs] I’m sure that’s not all he does.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Aussiemandias

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe you should tell @lancearmstrong that… ;) He’s watching, you know!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Aussiemandias Well, yes, if someone’s profile says “evangelist” it means they’re trying to sell you something. Yawn.

via Twitter Web Client

It’s about whether I “need” or “want” a by-the-minute stream of those folks’ worlds. Usually, no: summary suffices.

via Twitter Web Client

(I’m sure they’re all really nice people and give to charity and are kind to the pets etc etc.)

via Twitter Web Client

@Aussiemandias I don’t follow @GuyKawasaki or any “must-follows”. Why see the same as everyone else? Someone’ll tell me if it’s relevant.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Aussiemandias

RT @regator: [The word “crazy” is] completely interchangeable with awesome, incredible and bacon. [Try it in everyday speech!]

via Twitter Web Client

@Aussiemandias Guy Kawasaki’s comments are important why? [shrugs] I gather he did something in the 1980s. So did Bros.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Aussiemandias

@regator Why are all YouTube videos labelled “crazy”? Is that the new generic adjective?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to regator

@SnarkyPlatypus Les vélos … Matelas … Il est tout de même de l’Australie Occidentale avec le Parti Libéral!

@samotage Ubuntu may have “an office suite”, but the cost of retraining staff frightens small businesses. Move to Office 2007 hard enough.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to samotage

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis comme Julie Bishop transpiration au cours d’une difficile bataille de pré-sélection.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kurtv Agreed. Things like http://is.gd/iGeH are just an excuse to charge corporate clients lots of money for measuring… something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kurtv

Mobile. Eventually to Darlinghurst for 1130+ client work, but breakfast along the way somewhere.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett You cannot draw me into generalised comparisons of “Mac users” vs “Windows users”… That way danger lies. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@tdm911 Heh! That said, I’ve had plenty of small-business clients who didn’t know licenses are (say) per-computer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

Another list of Twitter lists of lists of lists lists. Lists. http://is.gd/aTVQ Stop making lists, people, and start communicating!
