Work almost done in Surry Hills. Who’s up for an early-minute ale or something later?

@delic8genius Interesting blog post about the , Sir! http://bit.ly/aBiKA I’ll probably respond properly later.

@ellyhart It’s nothing exciting. Moving a client to their new laptops. Lots of copying and installations of crossing off checklists.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ellyhart

On site in Surry Hills. Part B of the installation proceeds, and all seems like it shall go to plan today.

Moving beyond Cheech & Chong playing the Enmore Theatre at all is the news that they’re playing FOUR nights!

@tomatom @SylviaDiscount @josh909 Thank you all for your expert knowledge regarding tomatoes. The world will be a better place.

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown Station / Town Hall station / CBD errand / Surry Hills client for most of the afternoon.

Cherry tomatoes make rather inadequate buttplugs.

@willemrt “Blog spam”? Bah! I chose DELIBERATELY to link to 3quarksdaily because that was my source. No different from a RT. A credit.

Problem with Telstra policy: Can’t use “trademarks” in own blog posts, yet the very WORDS “Telstra”, “BigPond”, “Next G” etc are trademarks.

via Twitter Web Client

Amused: Telstra’s policy specifically lists “imminent departure of key executives” as something you can’t mention. Happens a lot?

DD SnarkyPlatypus Careful! We are not yet authorised to talk about Operation Java.

@mpesce Some people do seem to be hung up on logical explanations for why things are named the way they are. They are so dull.

@mpesce This map may be of assistance. It’s all quite clear. Though perhaps not to Andrew Bolt. http://is.gd/tyxd

@mpesce My understanding is that despite Oracle buying Sun, Java will continue to move ESE at 11mm/year, thanks to Plate Tectonics.

Tue plan: Head into my SEKRIT CBD eyrie to plod through “paperwork”, planning and bookkeeping, with breakfast en route.

@Wyane I suspect that @SnarkyPlatypus and I live in some sort of parallel universe early in the morning.

@DDsD It’s been clear for years that Internode and iiNet are the most clueful ISPs. The fact that they’re run primarily by geeks may help.

@bigjsl Installing Ubuntu and getting Bluetooth to work does not make you a “guru”. WRITING Ubuntu’s Bluetooth drivers gets you closer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bigjsl

@bigjsl 35% of Whirlpoolers calling themselves “guru” http://bit.ly/4rqmzW is precisely Dunning-Kruger. (And self-selected.)

24 disgustingly beautiful images from the Cassini mission. NASA is such a bunch of pricks. http://is.gd/tuKs

You can now tweet directly from your brain. True. Your tweets are still just as stupid. http://is.gd/tvVF

@SnarkyPlatypus Ces images inappropriées à apparaître sur mon écran d’ordinateur, pour les non sollicitées. Clive Hamilton est consternée.

@SnarkyPlatypus S’il vous plaît, Monsieur! Je vais être obligé de vous montrer des images de la bande de garçon japonais inapproprié!

I think I’m pleased to see @mayorofnewtown appear on Twitter. I think. The politics are… confusing.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis stupéfait par la richesse de l’univers. Et vous?

@FiBendall We have a producer? That’s excellent news. Now we just need the project. ;) Several appendages are crossed!

@SnarkyPlatypus Is there anything I can do to help you get gruntled again?

@BernardKeane See, there’s a reason why I should be Australia’s Ambassador to the UN. I’d show them what “stunned” really means.

@Nickhodge I think male fashion needs to see the return of the codpiece. Especially amongst politicians.

@duckscratch I think NSW Schools gazetted the school holiday calendar before the feds made the Anzac Day decision. They plan 5 years ahead.

@duckscratch @desertgirl_2 “Mistake gives NSW teachers, students extra holiday” http://is.gd/toMI Would the ABC be wrong? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, maybe I’m special and in-touch and need to link to an Anzac Holiday clarifier. http://is.gd/toFH It’s wrong: NSW teachers have 27/4 off.

via Twitter Web Client

Astounded to hear people only just finding out about the Anzac Day holiday arrangements. FFS stay in touch!

@TheKomodoDragon And yes, it may well be a sign of the Apocalypse. I live in fear.

@mr_billiam The sentence was “Please replace the photo on the ukulele page with this one, it’s urgent.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_billiam

I never thought I’d live to see a world where “ukulele” and “urgent” appear in the same sentence. We live in strange times.
