@Debichan As it happened, I crossed from right to left, past the Dendy after dinner, back past the Enmore Theatre to where I am now.

@nazzer True, alas. The Hub is sitting there idle on Newtown Square. It’s a great shame. Something should be done.

They leave the railway station, social bifurcation. Right-turners to arthouse film at the Dendy. Left-turners, Hilltop Hoods at the Emmore.

Enmore Rd at dusk on a Saturday night: that calm before storm moment, empty restaurant tables ready for action.

@snrkl Lens Culture is in my RSS reader as a “read when I have free time” (opposed to “must read daily”).

Sat plan (remainder): Soon, to somewhere for a late lunch / dinner; back home for a quiet, warm night.

“Totally Wasted”: Mother Jones magazine’s major feature on America’s “War on (Some) Drugs”. http://tr.im/sTVv Plenty to ingest, um, digest.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong I will have to get out of bed now, though, because there is no food apart from gin. Wait.

@Matt_Tulk Fever is fading slowly. Diagnosis: “Could be any bloody thing”. Standard viral procedures: rest, fluids, drugs, hookers.

Former Swiss police photographer Arnold Odermatt’s artful photos of car crashes. http://tr.im/sTJJ

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: The Twittrix can entertain you. If that does not work, resort to drugs and hookers. [Can has home delivery?]

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. @ApostrophePong went to a farewell party ‘cos I want to rid myself of this fever. And now I’m… what’s that word? Bored. Poo.

@gga I had never thought I’d ever see “Daniel Dennett” and “hot tub” in the same sentence. So there you go.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh bah! What, exactly, is disturbing for children about magic raccoon testicles? http://tr.im/sTnv

@firstdogonmoon I think there’s a cartoon there: “Ways of thinking about Christopher Pyne”.

via Twitter Web Client

@yin_yin That’s gotta be toxic in about 427 different ways!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yinettesys

RT @yin_yin: OMG! Microwaving an OLPC Laptop!!! http://bit.ly/oQvQE

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus No, of course not. It’s always GOOD to think about Christopher Pyne. At ANY time.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I still want to get “The Avenging Narwhal Play Set” The koala is full of win. http://tr.im/sTfj

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@barrysaunders I am happy for there to be a distinct lack of gnashing of teeth. ‘Tis a most annoying sound.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Somewhere I still have notes from a series of Daniel Dennett’s lectures I attended. One was about how hallucinations work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, there are many things to like about the The Guardian, and that footnote is one of them. ;) http://tr.im/sT9N

“The folly of pretence”: Daniel Dennett (swoon!) on believing in belief. Militant atheists need to move on too. http://tr.im/sT9N

@barrysaunders Oh FFS I just mistyped! I’ll delete the tweet and start again, shall I?

Message for my planned dinner companions: Yes, we’re being sensible and making sure my fever is 100% gone, so no dinner for us tonight.

Data unpacked. Drop into correct directory of backups. Run rsync. 15 seconds later, everything works again. I love you, rsync!

via Twitter Web Client

Some of these many gigabytes of data are old versions of old things that really could be deleted. Customer support databases from 2000? Bah!

via Twitter Web Client

Far too many gigabytes of data to trawl through to find the 200MB of files I actually need to restore. I must have patience.

via Twitter Web Client

Excellent. I just completely broke the SupportSuite installation for my business. It’s a good thing last night’s backups ran properly.

@nickobec I had a book, which I’ve lost since alas, which said “by 1975 there will be weekly Shuttle flights”. Ahem.

@SnarkyPlatypus Tous les événements des licornes, en quelque sorte. Mon traducteur est plein des anguilles.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je peux proposer un défi passionnant que de soupe à la citrouille, si vous le souhaitez.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kerryank I’ve sorta written that already, in “Why the US space program is shite”. http://tr.im/sSjp Sorta. But yes, why aren’t we on Mars?

Wondering whether to write something about Apollo 11, given SO much has been written already.

Pimping your Facebook photo reveals your narcissism. Wired: http://tr.im/sYWa Original research: http://tr.im/sYWd Hat-tip @shanselman etc.

via Twitter Web Client

@moorjames But…it’s pretty fucking lame that ALL you tweet is that same tweet to everyone who mentions “hosting”. Please evolve.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to moorjames

@moorjames That comparison of cheap hosting http://bit.ly/J5lMQ is useful yes. And yet, I have clients who want smething other than cheap.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to moorjames

@seancarmody @kcarruthers Maybe I should pimp my little hosting service a little more, eh? :)

@trib We all pick our own tribes. Truly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@glengyron I’m resisting listening to them now. I need to sleep, not ramp up for a party. No, really.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

I still don’t believe they let us build a giant pyramid in the Masonic Centre, with strobes for the eye at the top. They found it “amusing”.

via Twitter Web Client

@glengyron Oh, I didn’t know you knew Club Escape. Try this cmments on this sekrit Facebook link then. http://tr.im/sV8K

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@glengyron Yes, DJ Angu$ is putting some Club Escape episodes online. Triple J Adelaide 1991. It’s… amusing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@yin_yin Maybe we can burn down @olpcbrasil for lame olpc text matching idiocy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yinettesys

Home. Surrounded by quilt and cats and a small amount of warmth. Downloading sekrit ancient audio files of me on the radio in… 1991.

@ApostrophePong I am assuming Crocodile Senior continues to be a fine modern Thai diner. I am envious of your choice.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

The pumpkin soup at the Warren View Hotel is over-priced at $12. Very ordinary. Not even garnished. I am disappointed.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib That’s something to do with the dynamic of which tribes occupy a space when: geeks, marketers, government, politicians. Maybe.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@michaelfieldcom Aha! Understanding my perspective is best done in small doses, and not on the weekends. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelfieldcom

@michaelfieldcom This is a more business-like topic than I usually tackle at this hour, so I’m not really taking it seriously.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelfieldcom

@michaelfieldcom Hence, even if I haven’t seen something, that’s just the argument from personal ignorance. A fallacy. ;) http://tr.im/sUWw

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelfieldcom

@michaelfieldcom Well, I look at the world through a prism more political than marketing and commerce, so I’m not the best to ask.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelfieldcom

@dkhall44 Thank you. The fever DOES subside. Slowly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dkhall44

@michaelfieldcom Yeah, dodgy online peddlers taint things. But even more ethical ones descend on social media like vultures.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelfieldcom

@mpesce Ovens and steam turbines are more efficient than hamster wheels. Just sayin’.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce The fever seems to be every slowly getting better, thank you. It lingers, but lingers less.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce We should not be pandering to marketers’ cheap buzzword addiction, but curing them of it. Srsly. Or just killing them outright.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Also, it says “thought leadership”. I’m starting to get stabby.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I know that preso gets to the point about two-way, but it’s all tl;dr for marketers. They’re not very bright.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Venisejb I know, I know. I’ve been keeping my website address secret by… putting it on my Twitter profile and everything else I do. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Venisejb

@mpesce How about a preso that says “Hey marketers? Shut the fuck up! The rest of the world actually MAKES and DOES things!”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I’m not sure http://bit.ly/HrbV3 IS a preso marketers should see. It starts by telling them big numbers they think they can spam to.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@Venisejb Oh everything I do is linked off http://stilgherrian.com in one form or another. Except the bits that aren’t ‘cos they’re sekrit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Venisejb

@Venisejb It’s the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney, where Conroy was launching that report I wrote about the other day. He didn’t hit me. ;)

@TykaL I think the key thing is Australian hip hop artists being Australian, not trying to slavishly copy boring American stereotypes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to _tyrone_

@TykaL I don’t know Hilltop Hoods as well as I might, more familiar with some of their (somewhat unknown) predecessors.
