@vardenrhode If it wasn’t 7.45pm at the end of a long fnord Friday, I’d try to define Discorida in a single tweet, yes. But I can’t now.

@kimberleighs Um, oops. “Vilkage” is a typo for “Village”, by which I mean my local village of Enmore. Maybe I need a Glossary… ;)

@ragnarok1971 Good God, Sir! You know (I think) how much I despise the strip generally, let alone during Compulsory Cliché Faggot Season!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@kcarruthers Yes, that’s Gnaomi. http://twurl.nl/iqxsnd She’s famous and in much demand.

@vardenrhode How many Erises are there? All hail Discordia.

via Twitter Web Client

@kimberleighs yes, Fu Man Chu has a great rep. But I think I might have dinner back in the Vilkage. Or not. Beer before decisions.

@plasmaegg @IanKath And you two gentlemen are also of like mind, but slower. :P

via Twitter Web Client

@barrysaunders @voirol @GarryMunro You are all of one mind, Gentlemen! “Have another”, indeed. :P

I am finishing at Darlinghurst now. I will have ONE beer at the Green Park. What should I do after that?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh FFS that man can can talk the hind legs off an elephant!

So, the offline diagnostics show no errors, but when save the log file you say you can’t detect the USB key. Notice any inconsistency, hmmm?

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Yes, dear, you’re wonderful and oh so special are you happy now excellent now go away kthxbai.

ROFL! It’s performing “Self Discovery”! Isn’t that usually done with crystals and incense, led by a tie-dye-clad woman named “Harmony”?

@ZebraBites I’m doing a full firmware and low-level driver upgrade on an HP Proliant running Windows Server 2003. Hardware diagnostics next.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ZebraBites

@ZebraBites It’s the right direction only if this computer is not in, say, Arabic. Which it isn’t. I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ZebraBites

My previous tweet may or may not explain why I just followed @AFTRS simply because @SilkCharm said so.

Watching a blue bar get slowly longer, rightwards. It’s not the first for the afternoon. It’s far from the last.

RT @jonseymour: Outbreak of unwarranted optimism in comments to @coljac’s New Matilda piece: http://bit.ly/CgXzF

RT @coljac: A timely reminder of the evils of , which as it happens, is still official Government policy: http://bit.ly/s4v1a

via Twitter Web Client

@coljac Yes, a bit bizarre: this whole thing is based on just a few vague lines of “policy”.

@timothygrey Agree that coffee at the Bunker in Darlinghurst is good, but I’m stopping coffee in the afternoons. My doctor says… etc.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timothygrey

@BiteTheDust The train to Newcastle would be a lovely journey but a challenge for Next G reception. They should put a microcell on trains.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BiteTheDust

Arrived at Darlinghurst. One client office isn’t ready for the server downtime. This a tad… disruptive.

via Twitter Web Client

@stufromoz Alas, yes, too far to travel. And Nurofen is likely to be… inadequate for the job. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to stufromoz

It’s Friday. I’m tired and I have a headache. I’m likely to be grumpy and impatient.

via Twitter Web Client

@coljac Do we have a case of people not being able to count Senate votes?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coljac

@Colgo LOL. It’s a bit like the people who think their life will finally become organised if they buy just one more organiser thingo. ;)

Sometimes I wish that instead of inventing more and more and more tools, people would USE the tools they already have to ACHIEVE something.

@NewtonMark @jeamland Alas, even ssh encryption is unlikely to speed up 15x the transfer of a .zip’d CD ISO image. ;)

@renailemay Is “having a really positive internal meeting” a euphemism for something? It sounds like “added fibre for regularity”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@terryworld A meaningful bio (or not) is a BIG factor for me deciding whether to follow back. I have a LOT/per day, so the decision’s fast.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to terryworld

@jeamland I was also thinking SSH could be faster than HTTP if there was a dodgy transparent HTTP proxy in the middle. “I’ve been Conroyed!”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Would routing differences really explain 15x speed difference? Mind you, would HTTP vs SSH?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@JonoH BTW, I was impressed with Next G on the road to Yass. Only significant drop-out was in hills just before Yass, which was expected.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Weird, tho, I get 15x faster pipe from HP t my US server, then still that 15x from that server to m in SYD. SSH faster than HTTP?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

Did I mention that Theodore Roosevelt was in my dream last night? I’m trying to remember what he wanted me to do.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis fatigué, mais heureux, après une longue et épuisante semaine. Et dans Les Pays de l’Ornithorynque?

via Twitter Web Client

@themediaisdying @kcarruthers Agreed, we’re consuming (and making!) more media than ever, just less interested in the factory-made product.

via Twitter Web Client

@cowspanker “Unique Oz visitors to news sites” can hardly become more than the 21.5M population of the country, though. Wobbly stats.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cowspanker

@themediaisdying “The Media” doesn’t see Qiking Thanksgiving Dinner to Aunt Maud in Cincinnati IS media too, only looks at its own needs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to themediaisdying

@themediaisdying “The media” isn’t dying, only industrial-age media ops. New media and its long tail grows rapidly. 24 hours in humans’ day.

@velvetsarah The 25+ club in Perth? I think it’s called the WA Branch of the Liberal Party. Oops.

@firstdogonmoon Yes, apparently you are a Twitterwhore. A beautifully-formed and highly sexy one, but a Twitterwhore nonetheless. Marry me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

If true, Microsoft should be fucking well ashamed of themselves. Being a lesbian is “offensive”? http://is.gd/kQ6K Hat-tip @stewartheys.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Hasn’t anyone told you? The entire universe is a “clever simulcra”. Especially you. And me. And @stephenconroy.

@deconstructo No, the man who had a friend named Adam did not sound cranky. It was more disbelief at the Authorities’ incompetence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to deconstructo

@abcmarkscott Good to see you on Twitter, Sir! You have a challenging time ahead!

@BrynAU Some folk liked my first attempt, tho it was better live. http://is.gd/4vNu

RT @seijaku0: Conversation I heard on the train a couple of days ago. Man to woman “the restraining order wasn’t gonna stop me from you”…

via Twitter Web Client

@BrynAU Glad you like my little observations. I plan to do some more liveblog observationals soon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BrynAU

I suspect these guys need to work on their opsec. Amd their personal hygeine.

Further explanation: “Coke’s not all that expensive at the moment. Adam’s got plenty of supplies. So whatever you want.”

Listening to another passenger explain how “they fucked up all the paperwork for me bail”.

OK, time to wend my way home to the village, using electric tubeworms as appropriate. Kings Cross on a Friday night. Erk. Wish me luck.

@vardenrhode I will indeed contribute a Thought in the morning my time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vardenrhode

@vardenrhode Alas, your definition focuses on one element, rather than finding the core. An important element, tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vardenrhode

There’s something rather appropriate about mis-typing “Discordia”. http://is.gd/l4wn

RT @GarryMunro: The main purpose of holding children’s parties is to remind yourself that there are kids more awful than your own!

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Ah no, the point was that I wasn’t bothering to try to sum it up in 140 chars because I’m too tired. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Um, yes, I am familiar with all that, given that I’m a Discordian myself. :) All hail Eris!

@kimberleighs There IS a Danish restaurant on Enmore Rd called The Gourmet Viking, but their food looks remarkable boring.

@Nickhodge Sorry, are you accusing me of making sense? FFS, what’s WRONG with you, man?

I am following the majority advice.
