ACMA states bleeding obvious: “Online skill levels essential to maximise benefits from the internet and minimise risks” http://is.gd/mE03

@GreenJ You could use http://spellr.us/ It must be good, @Jasoncalacanis says so and he isn’t evil at all. [See how long before he replies.]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ Alas, my next piece had better not be about goats nor contain ANY spelling or grammatical errors. I’m fucked.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@rbbrown Ah, no, I can reassure @GreenJ that he doesn’t need a rogue apostrophe to make him look foolish.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

RT @jeamland: If you can’t see the rogue apostrophe, it can’t eat you. It’s like a fnord. [But Crikey is FULL of fnords!]

via Twitter Web Client

@rbbrown I think it’s a clear indicator of the general lapse in moral and quality standards to be expected under a Labor government.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

@rbbrown The first rogue apostrophe is in the first paragraph of the editorial. I’m trying not to see any more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

Trying to think of something sarcastic to say about ad:tech that isn’t completely obvious. I’m getting old.

via Twitter Web Client

@rbbrown So, you’re admitting the rogue apostrophe IS your fault, then? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbbrown

@GreenJ Can Crikey please send everyone on a remedial course covering “its” versus “it’s” at length and with electrical procedures?

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffjarvis on “customised” newspapers: “like Detroit trying to invent the mechanical donkey”. http://is.gd/mCKp

via Twitter Web Client

Maybe we could cross-breed the hordes of unemployed and unemployable sub-editors with the cockroaches. (Anyone want to run with that?)

via Twitter Web Client

@voirol True, that ACMA survey does confuse the source of the information with the medium and device it’s delivered on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to voirol

@maenad_au “Ersatz” means “replacement” or (in English) “substitute” or “fake”. Not coffee. http://is.gd/mMeX

“Internet is Australia’s most trusted medium - ACMA” http://is.gd/mEry Hat-tip @mumbrella.

@andrewbarnett Hey, I’ll gladly “try @jodiem”. That was in relation to…? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

RT @GreenJ: [Twitter is] full of 40 somethings and ersatz fascists. Facebook for time poor grown ups.

via Twitter Web Client

Wondering whether to clean up the chicken carcass or leave it as a monument to feline ingenuity.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyone done a site in http://goodbarry.com? Looking for (near) future potential work? You know where to find me!

via Twitter Web Client

@hopeinhell They’re scary stats. Sadly, closing down “men” as a criminal organisation probably doesn’t work. :/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

@vardenrhode But surely not ALL Americans can be idiots? I mean, you invented the Twinkie and drive-through banks!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vardenrhode

Tue plan: Desk morning inc 1000 podcast recording; 1500 client meeting Surry Hills (new web dev); evening gym/dinner with @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Maybe we could get the National Rugby League banned as a criminal organisation?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@tdm911 What is it with (particularly) Americans being shocked seeing on screen or paper words which are used in conversation?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tdm911

@rbbrown A $10 note for a $6.70 ticket is legal tender (see Currency Act). Take the driver’s number and lodge a complaint. :)

RT @BrynAU: The Sydney Theater Company has a nice selection of titles http://bit.ly/DnSE [Yes, including “Her Excellency Professor”! WTF?]

via Twitter Web Client

Last call: Colleague in Vic seeking .NET / Umbraco developer for work on major pharmaceutical stuff. stil@stilgherrian.com and I’ll pass on.

via Twitter Web Client

@4fthawaiian Your web form to Google Docs to email thing: Do you have a recipe? How long would it take to set up from scratch?

via Twitter Web Client

@agit8 O hai. Do you know of anyone already doing something like Stopped Clocks in Australia?

via Twitter Web Client

@bb600 That was the true identity of Fake Stephen Conroy… wasn’t it, @stephenconroy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bb600

@neuraxon77 If that was a deliberate pun, you are either awesome or a complete tragic. You choose! ;)

Optus sign-up form lets you be Bishop or Major but not a General. You can be “The” tho. http://is.gd/mLao Curious selection!

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “Let’s fix the Stopped Clocks”. http://is.gd/mL2z Anyone want to help me start a Sydney chapter?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Les sons de crier sera entendu à Quai Circulaire. Mai Dieu, aie pitié de leur âme.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@comedy_nerd For some reason it’s “Indian myna(h)” http://is.gd/mKQx but “noisy miner” for Manorina melanocephala http://is.gd/mKQ3

via Twitter Web Client in reply to comedy_nerd

@facibus There is a distinct possibility of a “Stilgherrian Live” tomorrow (Thursday) night, yes, provided things are not too stressful.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La Pleine Lune est peu de temps après 1330, cet après-midi, Sydney temps. Êtes-vous prêt?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Gosh, Apollo! How did you know I wanted the bin emptied and a chicken carcass scattered across the entire kitchen? You’re such a clever cat!

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. With the sound of currawongs, honeyeaters and those countless noisy miners. And heavy jets.

via Twitter Web Client

Time to escape. Or collapse. Or implode. Too many typos, too much ambiguity. Too much facial hair. [exit]

@HappySinger Please tell Reta the Quiz Dominatrix at The Duke that I say hello.

@BiteTheDust Heh! Why is following me “living on the edge”? Like, I only TALK and stuff.

RT @ApostrophePong: New blog post: Essential Mardi Gras Parade Photos http://tinyurl.com/c9ul46

@ApostrophePong Yes, I need an Old Jew to explain why so many Jewish jokes are about a doctor an a patient. Even a Young Jew would do.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@ssharwood Excellent! This is perhaps a better Old Jew Telling a Joke: “emissions” http://is.gd/mG9w

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

@reallyjapan O hai! :) Yes, I did plug http://reallyjapan.com … amazing images, Sir! My partner @ApostrophePong is a photographer etc.

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl?” I understand the words individually… but put together like that they defy meaning. At least to me.

via Twitter Web Client

Or, for change of pace, the latest offering from “Old Jews Telling Jokes”: http://is.gd/mG3V One of my new favourite blogs.

via Twitter Web Client

And this image has sold me on the photoblog http://reallyjapan.com … yes, it is Teh Future! http://is.gd/mG1I

via Twitter Web Client

And also the Wall Street Journal’s “Photo Journal” http://is.gd/8X37 though that’s just “the day’s best photos”, rather than a theme.

If you like Boston.com’s The Big Picture, you’ll also like NPR’s The Picture Show. http://is.gd/ikWr

@bunnysofdeath I suspect that Coriole has just done a distribution deal with someone hence it appears around the place.

via Twitter Web Client

@lesleywhite Yes, Coriole is in McLaren Vale. Well worth a visit. They do an excellent Sunday lunch with matching wines. http://coriole.com/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lesleywhite

@lesleywhite The Coriole 08 is quite adequate. I got it from Enmore Fine Wines on Enmore Rd,they often get various Coriole in stock.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lesleywhite

@wolfcat I see @sunriseon7 linked to one of my tamer articles about Bernadette McMenamin. Maybe they’ll work up to more challenging ones.

Pottering around while sipping a Coriole 2008 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and wishing several parts of the universe would implode.

@imtimhanlon US$10 for a blog post (i.e. writing) is rather low compared with “real” writing. Maintains the idea that blogging is ‘easy”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to timhnln

@GreenJ Awwwww…At least be pleased that I didn’t make any jokes about your colon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

RT @duncanriley: Interesting: going rate at ACP for a blogger is $10 a post. http://is.gd/mE14

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown station / brunch / SECRIT eyrie / 1500 Surry Hills client meeting etc.

@brettw By “mysterious powers of psychic inference to assist in your quest” you mean “Twitter search”, I know. But it’s still magic.

via Twitter Web Client

@awrd I wrote about NRK’s BitTorrent work previously. http://is.gd/eQDT @eirikso ran that trial, he’s usually happy to speak about it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to awrd

@brettw Thanks for the pointer to GoodBarry implementors. I knew you’d know, somehow. ;) Will be in touch when I have specifics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to brettw

@crikey_news Instead, provide in-depth coverage of World Championship Wrestling and illegal cockfights.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crikey_news

@crikey_news Yes, yes, the Liberals are in-fighting again. Yawn. Suggestion: Don’t cover them AT ALL until they sort it out.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crikey_news

@jodiem I’m seeing GoodBarry as a potential answer for a couple 2- and 3-person businesses who need to ANY sort of simple workflow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@jodiem Ah a shame, ‘cos there’s a couple potential sites coming up which would be perfect for GoodBarry. I’ll keep hunting.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@R_Chirgwin Um, yes… 0845 is just fine for recording the podcast. ;) That went well.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

@StuartLivesey “If you run a serious business then Google Docs is simply not an option.” Why? Cost-effective web form to data capture FTW

via Twitter Web Client in reply to StuartLivesey

@4fthawaiian For coining the word “twecipe” I’m not sure whether to kiss you or spank you. You choose.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 4fthawaiian

@voirol Correct punctuation is what separates us from the lower mammals.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to voirol

RT @4fthawaiian: OK, as for a recipe: docs.google.com, create new form, click “More Actions”, embed, add to HTML of your contact page. :)
