Good, he has his emergency Ganesh.

RT @nazzer: Never thought I’d find myself at the local Miss World judging but here I am… [Suffer!]

@gnoll110 The whole “steel industry espionage” story is beyond the understanding of poor liddle me.

A history of the Washington-Moscow “Hot Line”. http://tr.im/thwk Ah, Cold War history!

For another angle on the Stern Hu saga and China, check this translation of Chinese reports. http://tr.im/thsQ

@navytrident09 Your tweets from your mission are good, but too long for me to RT without too-hard editing. Keep up the good work.

@daiskmeliadorn Thank you. One can never have enough inappropriate unicorn sex.

Who’s on the Australian government’s Innovation Council? http://tr.im/thl0

@andrewdotnich Today you are: 1. Chatty. 2. Disturbing. 3. Equipped with large sinuses. I worry.

@GreenJ Ever since I was at the ABC last century, I’ve been amazed at how spontaneous “themes” seemed to emerge from the day’s stories.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Crikey is just full of parables and historical background today. An odd coincidence? Or @GreenJ’s Master Plan?

via Twitter Web Client

Yes, @jbud, @mpesce’s “Space to cyberspace” is a nice thought. http://tr.im/tgXw He’s so much more serious than me. Otherwise identical.

via Twitter Web Client

@durk94 Thank you, yes. Starting with unicorn sex and ending with a call to abolish the book industry was rather… fun. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DChapman94

@ParisSite Unicorn sex is an extremely serious business!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DavidParis

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / lunch somewhere / writing somewhere / 1700 Kudos Gallery, Paddington.

via Twitter Web Client

@juhasaarinen Nah not THAT much fun. I only get to write about it, not actually do it. Le sigh.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@mpesce Yes, I got my unicorn sex, but a drug reference was removed.I don’t know quite what to make of that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@erkpod Ididn’t offend myself, no. But then I’m not sure that what I write is Literature.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@kcarruthers Well yes I know, but today I think I offended every writer of Literature in Australia, an possibly the world.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

I am so going to get hate mail today.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH I must be at @ApostrophePong’s exhibition opening at 5pm. http://tr.im/tgCr However I shall monitor your movements around then. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@firstdogonmoon MasterChef in your cartoons? Wow. I wonder if there’ll be anything about unicorns in Crikey today…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@monnie Yes, the voice-(lack-of-)recognition systems are often shite. why START the conversation by pissing off your customers?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monnie

“Saving Paradise”: a great example of personal voice in an NGO blog. http://tr.im/tgmc Hat-tip Pernille Bærendtsen http://tr.im/tgmt

@Warlach This clever IVR had “…or press 0 to hear these options again”. Meh, I just chose at random.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

Dumb voice-response systems #27356: List departments, no “other”. And if you don’t know the department the person works in…?

@mhawkins1970 Erm, yes, I suppose I COULD rearrange those words for more fun… but I’ll leave that as an exercise for the reader. Ahem.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mhawkins1970

@GeordieGuy Well, if someone hasn’t kept backups (and MYOB files are VERY fragile!) then I call $750ph a Stupidity Tax. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GordyPls

@aqualung Actually, no,I don’t love those dodgy harbour booze-ups. Being trapped on a boat with drunken arseholes isn’t my idea of fun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to aqualung

Clever MYOB! “Fax this completed form to 1300 555 657”, a number which has been disconnected. Marketing FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client

It seems the sole reason I have a fax is to receive spam, from MYOB (fortnightly!) and dodgy harbour booze-up parties.

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown station / Town Hall station / SEKRIT eyrie office morning.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I’ve just committed to presenting something at @PennySharpemlc’s . http://tr.im/tpR9 But what?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus The weather has caught me too. I have my inside-out sheep jacket, and now I have to carry it around.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

What if Apollo 11 failed? Here’s the speech NIxon would have read. Yes, there’s always a backup plan. http://tr.im/tpHm

via Twitter Web Client

Is it just me, or is @TheBloggess particularly excellent today? http://tr.im/tpEW

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, I didn’t realise that today’s New Moon is also a solar eclipse (but not here in Australia). Should be fun.

Channel 9’s “Today” warning us off DIY plastic surgery kits bought over the Internet. Next up, do not put your head in a fire.

God it’s like putting your hands into a primary school fete.

via Cloudhopper

Can anyone explain why my jacket pockets are full of cake crunbs?

via Cloudhopper

@lrkane No, Scrambled Cafe is to slow, and too windy on the crest. I go to Le Bake, generally.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rahest

Wed plan: Breakfast on Enmore Rd now; work in SEKRIT Sydney CBD eyrie for the day (probably); gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.

@Matt_Tulk Blog posts like my Dell rant http://tr.im/tp0U tend to have a certain timelessness about them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

@SnarkyPlatypus Et c’est ainsi que l’équilibre de l’univers est préservée.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. L’aube est toujours plus belle au cours d’une école protestante?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Matt_Tulk For me the issue is things CAN break, so how fast are they fixed if in warranty. Do let me know how your Dell monitor goes!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Matt_Tulk

@RickyMaveety Nah, I couldn’t be arsed building computers. I’ve never been a hardware guy, though. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to RickyMaveety

@RickyMaveety I just don’t like Dell’s built-to-order approach. Usually I’m doing projects on a timeline and will order from known stock.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to RickyMaveety

Did people see @bengrubb’s “Libraries object to internet filtering” at iTnews yesterday? http://tr.im/torq

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear, looks like Dell has another unhappy customer in Guy Stevens. http://tr.im/toq5

Emerges. I’m hoping this doesn’t signal the return of the arise-insanely-early times.

I am home and give thanks to @mpesce and @JonoH and @ApostrophePong for various sins. [exit]
