@frankfil “Testing MMS” devalues “testing”. They mean “playing” or “trying”. iPhoners are agog at what everyone else had years ago.

Wondering how much the western world’s collective GDP dropped today ‘cos everyone couldn’t wait to fiddle with iPhones.

Thu plan, D-8: Write for Crikey and talk for 2SER; set up ActionAid blog environment; write a story about a donkey.

@facibus You are quite correct. Please hand all iPhone owners a large wire brush immediately.

@GeordieGuy “Bitter”? About iPhones? Hardly. It’s just another tool for a job, and a tool not suited for the way I like to work. [shrugs]

@jdub It’s far less hassle for me to donate the space on my shared server than to put up with IIS on a short deadline.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@jdub Yes, I do think I’d rather not run WordPress MU on IIS. Though they have Joomla on IIS now, which is just… perverse.

RT @Matt_Tulk: Agreed [he] had to do Eftpos installations before getting another IT gig he is fat and lazy.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, I also agree that the NEWS.com.au piece @duncanriley wrote about was indeed a troll. http://tr.im/oPZ3

Yes, Dear Bloody iPhone-owning Sheep, you have new software. It’s routine maintenance. Like brushing your teeth. Grow up!

“Thinking about Twitter and the Iranian Election aftermath” http://tr.im/oQwx More common sense from @megpickard, to wit…

So, little ActionAid website, which version of Apache are you running? “Server: Microsoft-IIS/6.0”? OH DEAR GOD NO! NO!

@SnarkyPlatypus Malheureusement, je dois parler de la brebis à la radio ce matin. Et peut-être écrire à leur sujet.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh. Bonjour. Et vous? Est-ce que vos organes internes fonctionnent bien?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Apparemment, nous sommes tous des experts sur la politique iranienne, et de choisir les parties basées sur… couleur.

“Michael Gowers: get off your fat, lazy, entitled arse and go and take any job you can get.” http://tr.im/oPZ3 Nice on, @duncanriley.

Actually, it’s “The sleeping pills, they do nothing.” Which means I’m way more stressed than I thought I was. Hello, Thursday.

Emerges. The goggles, they do nothing…

For those who don’t know, my Special Power is buying the last few tickets and winning the pub meat raffle. Even in strange new pubs.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong Questions need to be asked about why we don’t get meat raffle tickets at Kelly’s. Maybe they fear my Special Power.

@alecthegeek Everybody has the right to be grumpy. And to be grumpy about grumpy people. ;)

@Matt_Tulk @alecthegeek Most people are never taught this stuff formally. Computer literacy is mostly an oral tradition. And wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

@aeoth @dananimal Oh, my experience is that MOST people don’t know the terms “browser”, “dialog”, “menu”. “cursor”.

via Twitter Web Client

Astounded (again) at how many people don’t know their own email address, or that .com. and .com.au are entirely different things.

1530. Time for a late lunch, then errands to Darlinghurst and the Sydney CBD. Exhausted. Attention limited.

Excellent. I hit today’s bookkeeping target, If all goes to plan, I’ll be eligible for my Rudd Election Brib… I mean, Incentive Payment.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, and I’m not paying attention to much else today. I am not being terribly interactive. Think of me as @Oprah.

via Twitter Web Client

Excellent. The bookkeeping is going well, and it does look like I’ll hit my target for today. This will significantly reduce the stress.
