@eddit0r Actually, no. Poorly configured Exchange servers can wrap attachments in a winmail.dat. This fixes it for OS X: http://tr.im/ouej

@calrion What’s in winmail.dat that I’d find useful? The documents which were forwarded to me via a client’s Exchange server.

When you phone Newtown Police Station, you hear immediately that they recruit officers reflecting the area’s cultural and sexual diversity.

Installing the Letter Opener plugin for OS X Mail.app so I can read those daft winmail.dat attachments. FFS, it’s 2009 people!

@Rubbachook Um, it may be liberating to be uncontactable, but given that my task is to report from the field that’s not a bonus. ;)

Don’t think about social media’s “usefulness”. Think of it as a hobby. http://tr.im/oB8C Good point, @tomewing!

@sylmobile Good idea! Yes, if you can’t make the farewell http://tr.im/oB44 donate your beer money to ActionAid! http://tr.im/oB4h

@SnarkyPlatypus Une fois de plus, je regrette mon puissante imagination visuelle. Il est trop, trop tôt.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’utilise Excel à 8 heures. Ma vie se désintègre rapidement. Et vous?

Uhoh. I’ve just been told TZ is in comparison to KE and UG a strange country in terms of the Internet. Expensive and bad quality.

@yewenyi @hopeinhell I’ve written before that Sydney essentially runs on cockroaches. And is run by cockroaches. Respect.

@mbalara You should avoid buying coffee in my own kitchen before I’ve fully woken up and looked in every orifice. Um, wait. No.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MattBalara

I’m reasonably sure I didn’t request this cockroach in my coffee.

via Twitter Web Client

I shall meditate upon your responses, thank you. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

OK, who else shall I offend before going to bed?

@st0rmy_au Hardly. I don’t need to take grumpy pills. I take then other kind.

RT @zdnetaustralia: “RT @stilgherrian: Battery low. Internets dead.” [What? That’s IT news? FFS you are so full of FAIL. (But thanks.)]

via Twitter Web Client

Battery low. Internets dead.

There is no such thing as a “social media expert”. It’s all too new to have “experts”. We are all learning.

Anyone who thinks social media needs a “club” with fees and membership levels and all that hierarchy is a wanker. There. I’ve said it.

via Twitter Web Client

Looking at Facebook URLs and noticing what an ill-structured piece of shit it is.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. I didn’t bring a Nokia phone charger. My internets may die soon.

@kahlerisms Beef vindaloo. Clearly. Butter chicken is for n00bs.

Looking at my reading list, anyone would think I’m going to to Africa or something.

RT @anthonybaxter: Can we offer suggested additions to the record? Do criminal records have a comment thread? [Yay! THAT’S social media!]

via Twitter Web Client

@DDsD @facibus @wolfcat Thank you for your votes of confidence. Humph!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

RT @iain_chalmers: That incident with the dwarf, the Velcro, and the sink plunger wasn’t technically _criminal_ though, was it? [No.]

via Twitter Web Client

@EmperorNorton No, I don’t get hazardous duty pay. The opposite: ActionAid gets a hefty discount, and lotsa freebies. I’m insane.

I’ve just asked the lovely people at Newtown Police Station to send a copy of my criminal record to ActionAid. Stop laughing.

@nickorloff I think being towed away twice would be too much of a violation of personal space for most car owners. Plus it ain’t cheap.

@jmacmullin It is indeed Schadenfreude, and the best kind: the kind that happens while I have a cup of tea and watch. ;)

Taking pleasure in watching the tow trucks haul away the cars left parked in King St after the Clearway time started.

@calrion I had thought that if you played the radio in public (e.g. a shop), you still had to pay the extra license. I’ll ask around!

@calrion As @eddit0r put it, “ugh the ghosts of Exchange 5.0”. I haven’t seen it happen in ages. It’s a sign of old configurations.
