RT @unsungsongs: Noticed how similar the words “minister” and “monster” are? Neither had I! Til then. That can’t be a coincidence can it?

@HappySinger Excellent! Bulk mailings of Bibles to random strangers! All hail Eris!

@HappySinger Does that “send a free Bible” website have any way of authenticating who you’re sending a Bible to? Just askin ‘… ;)

@trib “Is there a way to tell which Firefox plugins are eating memory?” Witchcraft?

I can tell that I am going to get seriously cranky very very soon.

@iain_chalmers Anyone who recommends rolling out wireless broadband rather than a fibre NBN deserves a bullet in the head.

@jdub I tried calling you but your telephone is full of FAIL.

@mtcmorris Newtown on Friday arvo probably means others working from cafes too. But it’s shitful “broadband”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtcmorris

Dear Virgin Mobile, ping times of 6000 milliseconds and rising while online in Newtown is rather shitful kthxbai.

@BrookeHaskins Eat cheese. I think the way to wrap up Friday is to start at one of the cheese platter and devour the lot. Wine optional.

@m_williams1212 Oh yes! The Africa thing (Project ) kicks off soon. I arrive Dar es Salaam on 27/6. Bloggaqe with more details soon.

@BrookeHaskins O hai! :) See, there’s my social interaction for the day! ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, new followers? I turned off email notifications a while back. But you’re allowed to say hello and I might even say hello back.

I think I might tweet my individual emotional response to each and every paragraph of the story. http://tr.im/oeD8

Mind you, best customer service response ever: “I wish I could do more but I am just a pawn.” http://tr.im/oeD8

I can help but wonder whether Crikey’s coverage of the Snuggie has the potential to become obsessive. In a good way. http://tr.im/oeD8

RT @SMinney: Just days after Unix turned 40. Coincidence. [Isn’t EVERYTHING deeply connected to everything else?]

Project briefing done. Now, lunch somewhere to absorb everything. Bloggage will emerge later this afternoon.

via Cloudhopper

Mobile. Enmore Rd / back streets Newtown / Parramatta Rd / ActionAid office for Project briefing. Lots more news this afternoon!

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “Project TOTO: The Big Briefing” http://tr.im/okNx Finally, you get to see the plan. Such that is is.

@trib Indeed, WordPress forums say it’s a caching problem. I guess iiNet’s transparent cache is giving me wrong JavaScript.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Botheration. Image upload is broken in my WordPress 2.8. I WANT TO SHOW YOU MY PICTURES!

via Twitter Web Client

@trib It’s not sane, agreed. But it’s true. I know a contractor who got MUCH more work as soon as he tripled his charge-out rates.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib You pay US$749 for a Forrester report to reassure board members it’s High Quality. It it were cheaper, it would not be trusted.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@thatguyben Oh you poor, poor fragile people… ;) Hats off to @Scott_Drummond for such awesome linkage though. Well played.

Writing the blog post about the Project briefing that I should have written yesterday.

Emerges. It’s 0545 in Sydney and just 8C. But in exactly two weeks I’ll be here: http://tr.im/ojrG Dissonance! Envy?

dd SnarkyPlatypus I have erotic dreams about Frank Sartor. And a dedicated tissue box.

@iDarryl I’m from Adelaide. My entire life is a horror movie set-up.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iDarryl

So which part of “teen German backpackers” are you having trouble with, exactly?

via Cloudhopper

@middleclassgirl I have NO idea whether I can get the bandwidth to do a “Stilgherrian Live Zanzibar”. Working on it though.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@iain_chalmers No no no, the OTHER Zanzibar. The one with beaches and 5-star resorts and hydrofoils and extreme poverty.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to iain_chalmers

Awesome! Zanzibar is governed by “the semi-autonomous Revolutionary Government of Zanzibar”! http://tr.im/ofXx

@courtney_gibson I’ll have my people talk to your people. Does the ABC have an office in Dar es Salaam?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to courtney_gibson

@courtney_gibson “I need a whole thermos of bonox and a taser and I reckon I could take them all.” Can I submit that as a program pitch?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to courtney_gibson

@courtney_gibson I would have thought that after this week you’d need something a LOT stronger than a Bonox! ;)

@sylmobile Sweeney’s, yes! There’s still some great old-school pubs in the Sydney CBD, despite what the whingers say.

@OkayStill I’m meant to get raffle tickets with each drink I buy. I will confront the publican, I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to OkayStill

So why don’t I have any tickets in the meat raffle? It’s outrageous discrimination!

via Twitter Web Client

WTF? A “winmail.dat” file? Do I need to reconfigure your Exchange server before we can talk?

via Twitter Web Client

@casus_belli Re my “cranky” tweet earlier, I was having trouble with a recalcitrant client. They’ve been dealt with. And I’ve used bleach.
