@SnarkyPlatypus Gratuit nourriture et de boisson? Très souvent, il s’agit d’Une Autoroute de l’Enfer! http://is.gd/l0Bk

The Digital Liberty Coalition has a new “official” Twitter feed at @DLC_AU. Beginner’s mistake: no URL to their website in the bio! Duh.

via Twitter Web Client

Another new follower: Bio is a link to a promotional website and nothing else, only 2 tweets are both links to the site too. Fuck off.

@wolfcat The mystery is why a computer on a 65W power supply would blow a 150W inverter. Has electricity changed since I was at school?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@wolfcat Indeed, @Nickhodge and I agreed that staying with 12V from car to MacBook Pro seemed more likely to succeed.

Also noting the stupidity of auto-follows on word-matching. The other day I said I don’t like rockabilly. So a rockabilly robot follows me.

Looking thru a bunch of new Twitterfollowers, noting how few said anything about themselves, meaning I’m unlikely to follow back.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai été inquiet au sujet de vous. Vous avez été un ornithorynque invisible! Comment vas-tu?

@BiteTheDust The Ustream video dropped out when we switched cells, but that’s because it timed out before Next G had finished its thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

@BiteTheDust Yass is hardly “exotic” nor “remote”, but we had very good Next G reception almost all the way from Sydney.

@wolfcat I remember your warning about inverters, but they were all working OK. For a while. And then they died.

Emerges. Today’s alarm-conspirators were the cats, a persistent currawong and a particularly aggressive honeyeater.

I. Am. Exhausted. Thanks to everyone I should be thanking, which I’ll do in some sensible way on Saturday. [exit]

@HappySinger Here’s a nice summary of how “what The Rabbit-Proof Firewall is meant to block” has changed over time. http://is.gd/kWjv

@DDsD It’s possible you said hi to Apollo rather than Artemis, they look very similar at a distance. http://is.gd/kWiZ

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

@Nickhodge Indeed, Artemis is usually very reticent about ANYONE giving her attention. http://is.gd/h76Y

@Nickhodge Um, please be rewording your previous tweet http://is.gd/kW2X kthxbai.

@Mr_Internets Your evil father didn’t tell you about ? Hmmm… But then I’VE been talking about for days. Catch up, boy!

via Twitter Web Client

Oi! Live in moments, you slack things! Pay Attention to me!

Twitpic. Twitpic. Twitpic. Bah! Whatever happened to IMAGINATION?

via Cloudhopper

Watching a fat chick being photographed hugging giant concrete merino testicles, and laughing. She was a Christian, says @Nickhodge.

Heading north out of Canberra in that red thing belonging to @Nickhodge.

@longzheng The penetration of Internet is Australia is 2nd in world, but the speed is… well, please wind the handle faster. ;)

@smperris @plasmaegg Yes, the Parliament House Wi-Fi went bad, so “danzig” is the hotspot by me and Telstra Next G [insert pimpage].

@willemrt Yes, one you’ve bought the product, everything is about cutting costs. Their costs.

Noting that downloading updated driver CDs from HP’s support website is unspeakable slow. Surely a huge company can afford fatter pipes?

@CADbloke Ah! The “converter” is what I’d have called an “adapter”. Ye, we’d decided to go that way next time. We have Learned a Lesson.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CADbloke

RT @CADbloke: Laptops are natively DC, so are cars (both run on batteries). Inverter: DC-AC, laptop PS:AC-DC. Converter: car DC - laptop DC.

via Twitter Web Client

@CADbloke Sorry, you’re differentiating between an “inverter” and a “DC converter”? Please explain!

Fri plan: 0830 record podcast interview; clear 2 days of accumulated cruft; 1300-1700 HP server diagnostics at Darlinghurst client; escape!

Talking about inverters is possibly the most boring thing I’ve had to do all week. ;) Isn’t this what we invented electricians for?

via Twitter Web Client

@iain_chalmers But it’s not the 65W power supply that died, it was the 150W inverter. Three of them.

@Mediamum 24 March is Ada Lovelace Day. http://findingada.com/ I pre-recorded an interview for that.

@franksting When was the last time you pursued an engagement model with your mother?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting Facebook is “pursuing an engagement model”? LOL! You mean “talking with people”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@Mediamum No, we were in Yass for only 3 hours on Wednesday. The video we shot will be online on 24 March.
