@safzoro No, seriously, DO NOT do a Google Images search for “cher prolapse”, I beseech you!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to safzoro

@mpesce The fever isn’t a problem. Probably. Anyway, I should go find moar better drugz soon. I’ve nearly run out. Been inside all day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce What have I done NOW? BTW, another good word to add is “prolapse”. Trust me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Almost any Google search can be dramatically improved by adding either “naked” or “duck” to your search terms. Also YouTube.

RT @a_makohon: Somehow listening to your conversation has lead to this: http://is.gd/tP25 [The word “inevitable” comes to mind.]

@WarWraith @mtcmorris @Bosun_McShiny @Pollytics @Wyane Bah! You’re all wimps! I can find you worse. Much worse.

@lelak And here’s a picture of Cher’s original “gownless evening strap” (love the phrase!): http://is.gd/tP4y

I’ve just been told that I’m like Cher. I’m guessing like this. http://is.gd/tOUL

@martin_english There are architectures where only some traffic is opened up, but I’m sure we’ve been thru all this before?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martin_english

@mtats There’s been no change. ACMA’s blacklist is granular at URLs, not IP addresses, therefore packets must be opened to check the URL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

For those who don’t believe things are real without a URL, here’s Senator Conroy’s media release. http://is.gd/tOoX

@DDsD I’m sure Optus and the filter would have nothing to do with the . A government would never make deals like that. Ever. Ever.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

@ADevenish Well, the transcript of “Q&A” is at http://is.gd/p3ba and a search for “Optus” soon reveals… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@delperro No, no link to that yet. Media release arrives via email well before they can get it on the website, for some reason.

via Twitter Web Client

@ADevenish Conroy had said (was it on “Q&A”?) that they were still speaking with Optus and others. I guess agreement has been reached.

via Twitter Web Client

Senator Conroy’s office has just announced that Optus is taking part in the Internet filtering trials.

Kudos to Atlassian for raising $46k for Room to Read thru their $5 Stimulus Package. http://is.gd/tooI

via Twitter Web Client

@CADbloke But yes, http://is.gd/5Q7 is a better version. (And I make no assumptions about what’s “safe” for someone else’s workplace.)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CADbloke

@CADbloke Me? ME more polite than someone? BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHABBQ!!!1!1!!1!

@SnarkyPlatypus Now that makes FOUR ways in which I’m superior to Virginia Trioli. When will those ABC bastards sit up and take notice?

“Australia’s top 100 Journalists and news media people on Twitter” http://is.gd/tNKc Hat-tip @earleyedition.

@HighTechDad Yes, the ServePath crew solved the problem promptly, as usual. Thanks. I’ve been a very happy ServePath customer since 2004.

@Darcy1968 I new that I’d get a few people (re-)addicted to James Burke’s material. (My post http://is.gd/tNSB and yours http://is.gd/tNzl.)

RT @owenhodda: Or for $14.95 they could get this http://howtousegoogle.com [There’s your free plug. Now buy me drinks.]

RT @martinlau: On the note of “stop randomly asking”, you might also wanna bookmark http://lmgtfy.com/ [OH YES! YES! YES!]

via Twitter Web Client

@patrickgibsonau Bah! You don’t HAVE to talk corporate wafflespeak. It’s just a lazy habit everyone gets into. Seriously.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to patrickgibsonau

Bookmark http://downforeveryoneor… for the next time you “need to know” whether something’s broken, and stop randomly asking.

Server outage traced to an Ethernet card which decided, of its own volition, to switch to half-duplex. I guess it was having a hard day too.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: A rather agreeable article about Australia’s obsession with property and housing policy http://is.gd/tLmj [Very agreed.]

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, my server appears to be back online. Now, to see if there’s any clue as to what happened! What a life I lead!

via Twitter Web Client

@dhgarske I doubt that NetRegistry uses ServePath. ServePath is a San Francisco data centre. Still, things are deeply interconnected.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dhgarske

Waiting “patiently” while the sysadmins at ServePath figure out why my server has gone offline. I hope that clients are equally patient.

@Alex_Manchester There does seem to be a problem with my website for me too, though it appears to be a routing problem in the US.

@coljac A jacket with “CNUT” written on it no more makes you a cnut than a t-shirt with a chicken on it turns you into a chook.

@charispalmer @shermozle Heh! I should dust off the “How to communicate like an actual human” seminar I did for some IBM staffers in 2004.

@mpesce After telcos, banks and PR? I suspect the next obvious choices are airlines, advertising and journalism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I’m trialling a new method for boosting the immune system: telling the whole universe to go fuck itself, one sector at a time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Wyane Nah, you can’t string people up by their tongues. Use nails.

via Twitter Web Client

@sicsicsic I do mean a gun and not a camera, yes. A crossbow, harpoon or syringe full of strychnine would all be acceptable substitutes.

@mpesce I have Special Technology to prevent sneezing during the program. ;)

Thu plan: Continue to stay warm; more bookkeeping & related; some writing; stay warm; “Stilgherrian Live” at 9.30pm Sydney time.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh. My SEKRIT project is now 95% likely to get the green light, up from 90%. Perhaps only days until I find out for sure.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Remember, @Nickhodge, me and perhaps @mpesce will be doing a Very Special Thing with you for !

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@wheelyweb Agreed: “Video for video sake is an empty gesture.” As are the press-button gimmicks in http://is.gd/tXFM It detracts from story.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wheelyweb

I think I’d like this building for my SEKRIT HQ. http://is.gd/tXEs Hat-tip to whoever scrolled past too quick for me to see, sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

Someone suggested that I should do brief video reports, like @Rocketboom but with less blonde chick. http://is.gd/nGvG Comments?

I’d like to see the word “drongo” in wider use. That’s this drongo http://is.gd/tXz4 not this one http://is.gd/tXza.

@earleyedition I’m happy to RT your list of Australian media types on Twitter. http://is.gd/tNKc The Gods know, we ALL need more spam. ;)

@ridsy I “get” to swear? We all “get” to swear, we can all choose what we say (more or less). Self-censorship is criminal.

I’ve just been looking back at last night’s Twitterstream. I have no regrets. But I do have a bathplug, @alanjlee. So there.

@SnarkyPlatypus Si vous combinez des Membres du Parlement et du feu, vous aurez une Révolution. Pour le mieux!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Si vous combinez des conditions météorologiques et les chats, vous créez La Gêne.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

There are now too many ideas, too many seed pods and not enough bathplugs. All these problems will be rectified tomorrow. [exit]

@BernardKeane Of COURSE @TurnbullMalcolm has dogs. Dogs are sycophants. He needs their blind devotion. And tongues.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong If I can’t have a moment alone with a fat balding man with thick glasses and a safari suit, then life is not worth living.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@BernardKeane Alternatively, you could just show a photo of @TurnbullMalcolm and laugh for 4 minutes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane You could do a podcast with a kitten, like Blofeld in Bond. However I suggest a goat, like Senator Xenophon. http://is.gd/tR4I

@EmperorNorton You have destroyed my dreams. I hope you’re happy now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to EmperorNorton

In other news, the top search term bringing people to my website is no longer “stilgherrian” nor “heath ledger jokes”, but “fisting”. Gosh.

via Twitter Web Client

@ozdj Gosh you mean you get the same kind of emails as I do? Have you been talking to Mrs Marilyn Zup-Eureka from Armenia too?
