@leehopkins Re the discussions at http://is.gd/kc8q, right now it’s tl;dr and between me and the gin bottle. It doesn’t stand a chance.

@lucasng @Jen_Bennett @jeffsonstein It’s the same call to HP. 30 mins now. I can get on with other things while I wait. For now.

On hold at HP’s server support line for 20 minutes so far. Not impressed.

@franksting @websinthe Well, as I wrote the other day, “Clive Hamilton, you’re really starting to shit me!” http://is.gd/jFpn

@kirkbroadhurst VSS = Volume Shadow Copy Service. (Yes, I know that looks like it should be VSCS. Welcome to Microsoft.)

@awmitchell Hardware problems I can cope with: HP server on-site warranty service FTW!

@vealmince I was using BackupAssist. Seems good. I think my VSS problem could well be hardware. I need to Phone a Friend.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

Dear Twitterverse, if VSS is dying with “Unexpected error DeviceIoControl” and Ethernet goes dodgy too, should I suspect a hardware fault?

via Twitter Web Client

@AmbrosiaSw Oh hai. You make good softwares and stuffs for Mac. Snapz Pro X is my friend.

Too funny! @websinthe asks Clive Hamilton to justify his assertions and Hamilton claims he’s being silenced. http://is.gd/kaV0

@crikey_news Yes, actually, @leoh1llary makes a lot of sense. You know it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@leoh1llary Thank you for the thought, but I don’t think I’m eligible to win @crikey_news competitions. You would be though?

@barrysaunders @leoh1llary @wolfcat @afficionados_hh @snaglepus @stufromoz Of all your speculations, “State Government” was perhaps best.

@saline Thank you, m’dear. But should you really encourage my snark? ;) That way danger lies.

@retrogrrl Why can’t it be an “all-ages event” not a “family-focussed event”? Why subtly exclude everyone who isn’t a “standard” family? :)

Listening to a flock of corellas playing noisily in gentle rain. In our desert country, rain causes joy, not gloom. Fuck you, England!

Sat plan: Final touches on a new client website; stretch; gym & late lunch w@SnarkyPlatypusypus; evening unplanned, probably quiet.
