@gabfran Oh excellent, yes, I look forward to meeting you at SoGiKII! http://tr.im/nocT Anyway, must concentrate for now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

@gabfran For your nomination to count, it has to be at the website. :) http://tr.im/nm9Q

Also, don’t forget @yin_yin’s music special filling in for @Nickhodge at 8.20pm-ish AEST at http://tr.im/no1F (that’s 45 minutes from now).

There’s just one hour left to nominate a “Cnut of the Week” for tonight’s “Stilgherrian Live”. http://tr.im/nm9Q Yes, there’s a prize.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I am mostly preparing for “Stilgherrian Live” now, so attention is reduced.

via Twitter Web Client

@hortovanyi I gather @Nickhodge is taking a brief break from his program but has arranged suitable musical interludes.

@yeebok Only nominations on the website count, now that there’s a prize n’all. There’s rulez n’stuffs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yeebok

Meanwhile nominations are still open for “Cnut of the Week” for tonight’s “Stilgherrian Live”. http://tr.im/nm9Q Yes, there’s a prize.

@mpesce OK, a strange man is now singing at me. Sort of. And you are to blame. I think.

@Gelfand This is a client who’s previously said “We haven’t changed anything”, but failed to mention the new router and ISP. No, no change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to YouSaySam

Dear client on the phone, when you say “wireless isn’t working”, please tell me at the START that it wasn’t ever set up to begin with. FFS!

@SnarkyPlatypus I think it was something about Fitzgibbon being sacked for destroying the Sun, and @mpesce being the new Defence Minister.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @wolfcat: In order on my twhirl stream for fitzgibbon news, @crikey_news then @abcnews 1 min later @sunriseon7 then @SBSNews.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @crikey_news: BREAKING: [Defence Minister] Fitzgibbon is gone http://is.gd/NJEY More from @BernardKeane soon…

@mpesce YOU HAVE DESTROYED THE SUN! AGAIN! HOW MANY TIMES DO I HAVE TO TELL YOU?!!??!!!1!

@SnarkyPlatypus Speaking of retro, I’ve sent TWO faxes today. It feels… a little odd.

@SnarkyPlatypus Hey, speaking of “The Fox News of Women’s Basketball”, have you seen this website? http://tr.im/nmkR

@michaelmeloni To be honest, I’ve only had the briefest of looks at “The Punch”, so no real opinion yet. Let ‘em settle in, I say.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

“Stilgherrian Live” will doubtless happen tonight, so you’d better nominate a “Cnut of the Week”. http://tr.im/nm9Q Yes, there’s a prize.

@yin_yin What time does your “alternative and electro paradise” music feed for @Nickhodge start tonight?

via Twitter Web Client

@archielaw There’s also various media interest building for Project TOTO too. Innerestin’ times.

@R_Chirgwin I’m envious now. Wentworth Falls is magnificent at this time of the year! So beautiful. My weekend is full of tax paperwork.

Just discovered http://permatime.com, a useful tool for linking people to a local translation of a specific time, e.g. http://tr.im/ntvr

Just recorded my interview for this week’s “A Series of Tubes”. I seem to have been in a sillier/snarkier mood than usual, eh @R_Chirgwin?

via Twitter Web Client

Tryng to be an expert in everything telco-related this week in the next 15 minutes. Wish me luck. Periscope down.

@trib @jodiem It’s not about the amount of support, but whether local knowledge is available. I’ll write more about it later today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@jodiem @trib [Not aimed at you, but] Operating system zealotry is easy with an ADSL2+ link on your desk, power and a shop nearby.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@jodiem @trib Again, it’s about what can be supported in the field. Linux is useless if no-one in town knows how to troubleshoot it.

Fri plan: 0900 ASOT podcast recording; desk day of planning & comms; 1700 client Google AdWords set-up; gym & dinn@SnarkyPlatypusPlatypus.

@jodiem @trib Perhaps I can find a suitable Linux geek at Lenovo to advise. Reliability and support will be enormous issues here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@craigthomler I don’t think I’ll make it to Canberra for . Too close to Project . Unless someone wants to sponsor me.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to craigthomler

@jodiem @trib I was thinking of putting Linux on them, yes. But would that work the battery life right? And what do end users want?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

@jodiem Sure Macs work in Africa, but I’m setting up systems for others. If Apple gives us MacBooks I’ll take them too. Battery life?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jodiem

Lenovo is providing hardware for Project . I have a IdeaPad S10e netbook and ThinkPad X200 to trial, more to come to stay in Africa.

via Twitter Web Client

FFS! This Lenovo S10e IdeaPad (netbook) is trying to do face recognition on me before I’ve even had coffee! Not a pretty sight.

@craigthomler If by “screaming fans” you mean “demanding cats in search of fish”, then yes.

@SnarkyPlatypus Les Irlandais sont, par définition, une crise de foi incarnée. Aussi, 11% de chômeurs.
