@SnarkyPlatypus Pantalon est en train de changer aussi difficile que de changer les trains?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis sur le point d’assister à un sénateur sur la vidéo, de sorte que je porte des pantalons. Et vous?

Dear Twitterverse, what’s a good way (widget?) to add a list of forthcoming engagements, with links, to a WordPress blog like mine?

@fridley “A bird pretending to be cat?” How do you know I’m not a cat pretending to be a bird?

@retrogrrl Apollo is the opposite. All 6.5kg of him stands in a prominent place and SHOUTS his DEMANDS FOR ATTENTION! He has good lungs.

Emerges. “Miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow miaow,” it says.

It is late. I am SO fit from the gym I’ll burst soon. I’d better go. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@suziam So, not all people are interested in firewarms. Who knew? :) OK, we have a slot open. I will pursue tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to noopkat

@suziam You may be a but do you want to go target shooting one weekend?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to noopkat

@babyexpat More than a feast! A whole cow is like half a ton of meat.

via Twitter Web Client

Maybe we need to recruit another MINI driver so all 12 shooters arrive therein.

via Cloudhopper

Botheration. He didn’t succumb. OK, I’m off to gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus. Attention reduction procedures initiated.

via Twitter Web Client

@babyexpat Shooting a cow seems remarkably unsporting and… well… boring. They just stand there. You shoot. Plop.

@infoholic I haven’t created this week’s “Cnut of the Week” page yet, but will do tomorrow at http://stilgherrian.com I need minions.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to infoholic

@Wyane In Bangkok there’s a military-style shooting range right on Silom Road. I’ll try it next time I’m there. Yes, easier than Australia.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyone thinking of joining us for shooting should check the P650 form http://tr.im/kC5c to save embarrassment if they’re ineligible.

via Twitter Web Client

@paininthenet We’re doing the Try Shooting program. http://tr.im/kC4n Booking a private date once I know when is.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paininthenet

@mrsnickhodge Oh @SnarkyPlatypus was up for it too. There’s 6. So six more shooters and we have our private session. With guns.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrsnickhodge

@paininthenet No, I don’t think you get to choose your own victim. Which is a shame, I know, but there you have it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paininthenet

@Nickhodge @mrsnickhodge @yin_yin @ApostrophePong The shooting range confirms that if we have 12+ people we can choose our own date/time.

@rbuerckner It shouldn’t need regedit to fix an association between a MIME type and a program. Surely that’s done within the browser config?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@wraptinweb @rbuerckner Indeed, I’ve tried the stream with VLC as well as Quicktime and it works fine. But for tomorrow all’s good.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wraptinweb

@rbuerckner One day you’ll have to explain to me how a computer can do ANYTHING without “installing software”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@rbuerckner The stream is Quicktime MPEG-4 H.264 video / AAC audio. Got Quicktime installed?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

Shit! The Australian Sex Party (political party) is at http://sexparty.ORG.au The .com.au site is a different kind of sex party. Oops.

via Twitter Web Client

Sen Kate Lundy’s broadband forum tomorrow http://tr.im/kBMe will be streamed at http://tr.im/kBMg and they’d like people to test it now.

via Twitter Web Client

@willhughes Your query about whether @stop supports is even funnier now that I know the real @stop is creative director at Twitter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

@Mediamum Well as long as you HAVE a phone, even if you don’t answer it, then yes obviously you have a LOT in common with @stop members.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

I think I might form Sydney Telephone Owners Posse (@stop). Get together with people in Sydney who also, like, HAVE A PHONE!

via Twitter Web Client

@sydneytweetup Hi. What’s your differentiator from @stub and from, well, anyone just saying “Who wants to go to the pub tonight”?

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong There’s a storyboard template in Apple Pages, but it sounds that you more need a stylus/tablet for quick sketches?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@duncanriley Happy Birthday @theinquisitr! If you’re that badly behaved as an infant, may the gods help us when you hit puberty!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

@mpesce “Listening to ‘Kashmir’”? Is that code for “I’ve had too much hashish”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@jg_rat I agree. There’s nothing better than hurling an infected corpse over the walls to focus attention. http://tr.im/kB3a

@healthengine NSW health “under siege”? It was a technical failure. No-one was at the gates with trebuchet. Enough tabloid clichés!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to healthengine

RT @seancarmody: That’s unexpected! Australian retail sales up 2.2% for March. Consensus was only 0.5%.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib I can see a serious need for non-patronising but non-jargon orientation sessions for politicians.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib You’re right about the “preaching to the choir” aspects. If they’re watching a streaming seminar, they’re already here.

via Twitter Web Client

Q for Judy: How DO we get politicians to listen to people outside their traditional circle of advisors? To talk directly?

via Twitter Web Client

@tom_worthington How do we encourage the actual politicians to put in the effort to learn? Overcome their egos?

via Twitter Web Client

@piawaugh Maybe the process is 1 to 3 “official” outward tweeters, known well in advance so people can follow?

via Twitter Web Client

Stick AND carrot? Do we need to emphasise it’s politicians’ JOB to improve their performance, just like everyone else.

via Twitter Web Client

Disappointed. Folks tweeting are repeating speakers outwards, instead of contributing inwards. Anyone can already watch.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Apollo, maybe you should have done your farts BEFORE deciding to curl up on my lap. Well before.

via Twitter Web Client

@BeerAndSport The stream works fine for me on a 12Mb link here in Sydney. I’m not running it. ;) @piawaugh?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AndrewMosey

Notice how that even though it’s a “raw” feel, is already more authentic than Tanner & Conroy’s over-produced failblog.

via Twitter Web Client

@babycakesjase Hmmm… I didn’t make a rule against entering again, so I guess you can, indeed, enter again. http://tr.im/kGQo

via Twitter Web Client in reply to babycakesjase

@einspruch I haven’t been told where is yet. They’re playing with my mind. @FiBendall is slightly evil.

Sen Kate Lundy’s “High Bandwidth for Australia” http://tr.im/kGjJ is 9am (nearly now), stream at http://tr.im/kGjM

via Twitter Web Client

Since there’s a “Stilgherrian Live”, nominations are open for “Cnut of the Week”. THERE’S A PRIZE! http://tr.im/kGQo

via Twitter Web Client

Thu plan: Watch Senator Lundy’s seminar; lunch somewhere on King St; an afternoon of “paperwork” at my desk; 9.30pm “Stilgherrian Live”.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Pants off to work. [It does look like he’s changed professions.]
