Dear Virgin Mobile: “34% packet loss” and “round-trip min/avg/max/stddev = 342.890/1670.658/4505.247/1063.523 ms”. WTF?

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Oh I knew someone would whinge about that. Yes, yes, TCP/IP is wonderful, packets can be out of order etc etc. Now fuck off.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Dear Virgin Mobile, I know you gave me a bigger data cap, but can you please deliver ALL of the packets I send, in the order I send them?

So, if you’re from Wales and staying in Collaroy, WHY ARE YOU IN MY VILLAGE? Kinda cute, but incomprehensible.

@noblemonkey Everything is explained in today’s @firstdogonmoon cartoon. Well, SOMETHING is explained. Possibly.

RT @jeamland: Maybe all water buffalo are called Warren… [Perhaps this is true. Like all patch-fur’d dogs are called “Spot”.]

via Twitter Web Client

@alixjasmine It is a tease, true. But I still want to know why it’s ME who ends up finding out about the dodgy incidents.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alixjasmine

@firstdogonmoon So, Warren the Water Buffalo belongs to Ricky Ponting? The plot thickens! What is Ponting’s relationship to Matt Preston?

via Twitter Web Client

Hearing stories about an incident involving a gun which I can’t tell you about. My world is weird.

Mobile. Enmore Rd / lunch / wherever the mood takes me thereafter, while still working.

Oh. CupCakeCamp this Friday isn’t just gluttony. It’s gluttony AND helping @RSPCANSW. http://is.gd/2vOa6

@samotage Will Ruperts pay-wall deliver on parts 1, 2 and 3? http://is.gd/2vF2q Um, no. It’s about what content you create/reveal, not $.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to samotage

@zhasper Nope, not ratemynetworkdiagram.com, ‘cos I’m talking photos not diagrams. Maybe I was hallucinating.

@SnarkyPlatypus I would never speculate about anyone else’s drugs.

Aha! “A Series of Tubes” 93 podcast now online. http://is.gd/2vBct Pacnet on NBN, Twitterbabble and Government 2.0.

RT @franksting: should i source some of the drugs @HelenRazer appears to be on?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @akent: You can find a lot of good data center / cabling photos on Flickr. http://is.gd/2vADK [Ta for that.]

via Twitter Web Client

@Emesel Nope, not thedailywtf.com, it was a site specifically for photos of cabling and data centres. My Googlefu is full of FAIL.

@trib Why even spend time “weeding out” spam followers? I gave that up long ago. Don’t even look at follower notifications now.

@jg_rat I’d go for getting me to buy you a beer. We’ve been talking about the TV series for a VERY long time. Like me and my two books.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

@SnarkyPlatypus Just cos you’re raising the bet and call the shots now on me, ooh.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I wonder if I am writing anything for Crikey today…? [Passive aggressive, moi?]

via Twitter Web Client

@jg_rat Funny you should mention that. @SnarkyPlatypus and I have been talking about writing a really good crap TV series…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

@jg_rat Ah, RHG and CWB were so entertaining! Glad you enjoyed. I might turn it into a blog post.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

@WorldofRusty “Spy cameras?”, you say? Is this in regard to The Saga of RHG and CWB? Maybe stalkerish overkill.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WorldofRusty

@marclehmann I’m fairly sure that RHG from last night is bogan by default. She is from Collaroy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@SnarkyPlatypus Tweetdeck can do non-bogan characters if you switch its preferences to the “international” font. But it’s bogan by default.

@SnarkyPlatypus Si l’alcool a désormais pris son tribut, il est temps de passer à la prochaine grande chose.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jjprojects Hah! Well, we DO need “more innovative work around innovation”. Or work ON innovation, possibly. “Around” makes me stabby.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je ne peux pas penser à quelque chose d’intéressant à dire en français. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Last night I dreamed that I got a government grant of $3500 to innovate… something… and I can’t remember what.

@Pollytics My opinion i always hard. Even before I read your blog post. http://bit.ly/vFpQ6

RT @GreenJ: that’s so funny. quick, someone, build a paywall. RT @jason_a_w: Oh come on Good Living, “Sydney’s best eggs”. give us a rest.

@Sparkly_Tiara No-one has solved the Script Challenge yet. http://is.gd/2wQjc

via Twitter Web Client

For those following the Saga of RHG and CWB, they did just dash in and out again. We didn’t follow or take photos. We are not stalkers.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. There. Everything is balanced again. Mostly.

via Twitter Web Client

You people are so grubby.

via Twitter Web Client

RHG and CWB dashed in, grabbed their jackets and purses and stuff and have gone. We know what happens next. Sorry, no pics.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Look, it’s not MY script! This is reality unfolding. Also, @ApostrophePong is here. We may do a pic. Maybe.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ApostrophePong knew exactly where I am. He’s just walked in and grins. He’s seen RHG and CWB sitting on the steps.

via Twitter Web Client

RHG says, “Do you want a ciggie?” And they pop out to the street, out of my line of sight.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, she’s a one-trick pony. Again, “I thought you guys all hated me. I thought you had a girlfriend.”

via Twitter Web Client

RHG plays the card AGAIN! “Oh, I really thought you guys hated me!” CWB says, “No! We really liked you.” He is her puppet now.

via Twitter Web Client

Small talk, now that they’ve realised everyone else has noticed them. RHG is still worried that all hated her at Glastonbury.

via Twitter Web Client

Bar manager visits their table: “Guys, guys, I think you need to get a room. Seriously.”

via Twitter Web Client

@DDsD @ApostrophePong I can’t use Qik. The red light on the phone would be SO obvious in the evening light. Need to get better hardware.

via Twitter Web Client

“I seriously thought you guys hate me,”: says RHG.

via Twitter Web Client

They go for the kiss again. RHG is more assertive, hands on his body. “I was waiting for you!” says RHG. Silence as they snog.

via Twitter Web Client

RHG says: “But I thought you were brushing me off! That’s why I walked past you! ‘Oh, that’s that drunk bitch from last night’.”

via Twitter Web Client

CWB says, “I was so never interested in Siobhan! Like, no way!”

via Twitter Web Client

Ah! RHG says: “Seriously, at Glastonbury, all my friends knew you! ‘Jack [CWB], he’s the hot one’, they said. I was waiting for you!”

via Twitter Web Client

They argue, about who was interested in whom at the club, and then silence as RHG puts her hands on CWB’s neck and kissing him.

via Twitter Web Client

They’re back. RHG can’t keep her hands off CWB’s chest. Can’t blame her. Nevertheless, they’re rat-arsed drunk. Here since 1300, I’m told.

via Twitter Web Client

Bar manager and I agree: This script was written 10,000 years ago, and plays out the same every time. Also agreed: no more Sambuca shots.

via Twitter Web Client

The kiss is rejected. “I just want to shoot the cows,” says RHG. And she runs away into the rain, CWB follows. She’s left her jacket, purse.

via Twitter Web Client

RHG staggers as she looses a few rounds. CWB puts his hands on her hips and goes for the kiss.

via Twitter Web Client

Another round of Sambuca shots are sunk. RHG (raven-hair girl) and CWB (Cute Welsh Boy) start a game of Big Buck Safari II.

via Twitter Web Client

The “other Welsh boy” and the third guy have left. The new, cute Welsh boy has bought another round of Sambuca shots.

via Twitter Web Client

The other Welsh lad, less cute, seems annoyed that the newer, cuter one is getting more attention from the raven-haired girl.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @wolfcat: Brisbane temp falling. New August record 35.4C at 3:55pm up from 32.2C 14 Aug 1946 old record broken by 3.2°!

via Twitter Web Client

So, the young woman with long raven hair at the table with the cute Welsh lad and two mates is buying a round of Sambuca shots. At 1645.

Tue plan (late-ish): Potter-at-desk morning; webby-work afternoon; reading-writing evening, probably. Plan subject to change.
