Mobile. Enmore Rd, King St, @SnarkyPlatypus, gym, dinner and stuff. Attention very much depleted.

@stephenconroy Um, so why did you decide to reveal your identity? I thought it was all going rather smoothly.

via Twitter Web Client

@rbbrown Thank you. You are a very special human being.

@rbbrown @firstdogonmoon Heh! In my piece today there’s two (?) spots where I typed “SEO” instead of “SOE” (standard operating environment).

@bengrubb Crikey stories tend not to be edited/corrected once posted, perhaps because the daily email is still seen as the primary delivery.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@ragnarok1971 No, you should not point out the typo, because it’s already been pointed out and a comment added at the website.

@jeffunity I’ve already had a call about a Victorian agency that decided to do their own backups, having become aware of CenITex problems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffunity

@wayneoau Thank you. It’ll be interesting to see CenITex’s reply tomorrow. I wonder how widespread the problems really are… Hmmm.

@trib Ah! I haven’t got to my “afternoon coffee and savour Crikey” time yet. I really haven’t followed the ETS at all. I should, perhaps.

Department of Internets reviews new ABC Mobile. http://bit.ly/xKLA I smirk.

@trib Sorry, I have no knowledge of emissions trading schemes. I’m being dragged into this… why? ;)

@jeamland That’s a good method: one PC with locked-down SOE for a stable corporate comms platform, one open PC for developer-play.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@GreenJ @elerimai OK, I will not complain about apostrophes if you don’t complain about SOE/SEO mix-ups.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland I see SOEs as another tool for a job, i.e. not suitable for all jobs. 200 workstations in a call centre, yes. Lone developer, no.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@jeamland Yes, CenITex clearly screwed up MY Mac in Sydney by managing Windows XP boxes in Melbourne. I like your logic. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@mtats “SOEs are the work of the devil”? Hardly.

Me in Crikey today: “Is the Victorian Government running without data backups?” http://bit.ly/BPCxd [Free, not behind paywall.]

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland Bother. I thought I’d double-checked that SOEwas never typed SEO. Oh well.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

@stephenconroy Thanks for your insight. I never realised the Howard government was responsible for tentacle-rape. http://bit.ly/XFbS7

@mfarnsworth LOL! The story will be online before 2pm… You young folk are so impatient! Why in my day, we could WAIT for things!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mfarnsworth

And now, to discover where the Chinese hackers have hidden the kidnapped Kerry O’Brien. Oh hang on, that was a dream. Or WAS it? Confused.

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey story filed! I’ll be winning new friends in the Victorian government. Or not. Probably not, in fact.

@firstdogonmoon Independent media is, by definition, bad manners. If they had good manners they’d politely report the same as everyone else.

RT @andrewbarnett: Colleague, trying his first musk lolly, described it as like going down on the girl who works at the perfume counter.

@BrendanB How does punching your local councilman in the throat celebrate Ada Lovelace, exactly?

via Twitter Web Client

So, who else is doing something for Ada Lovelace Day? http://findingada.com/ I’ve recorded a video interview with a cool geek girl.

@Stuwiggle If I do have lunch on King St (by no means certain), I’m likely to be anti-social (reading) rather than looking for company. :)

Tue plan: A long, packed day at my desk, with proposals and project management; lunch on King St?; sysadmin evening (alas).

@garthk @trib The cross-link will change over time as they change importance. Sigh. This is not a medium for explanations. Fuck you all.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk @trib II’m thinking you START with a scatter-plot http://bit.ly/bU8fJ and THEN see what the clusters reveal. Maybe 100 exes.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk @trib No, you can’t assume how the axes might inter-relate, unless it DOES match some real underlying psycho-social politics.

RT @TheBloggess: Probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said about me: http://bit.ly/rCkAk [Yes, that’s true love.]

I reckon do a vast, multi-dimensional survey of views of many subjects and see where the data points cluster. And next week it’s different.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwallbank As I said last night, left-right analysis is 230 years old. It’s been dead far more than 10 years. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@trib I dunno. But the range of views on openness/privacy or group.individual or ETS or defence don’t map coherently onto those axes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@andrewbarnett @benmoretti @trib I’ve no idea what replaces the 2D Political Compass, except that it’ll be something multidimensional.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est une profonde, profonde conspiration.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Good to see folks using Political Compass, moving from 1D left-right “analysis” 230 years old to a 2D one only 40 years out of date. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@deconstructo Oui, incrementals are fine if there’s a recent full backup. The allegation is CenITex hasn’t done a full backup for a year.
