Dear Telstra, by all means stop adding new content to Now We Are Talking, but why do the Memory Hole deletion foolishness? Mis-step, folks.

Christ this Internet thing is a piece of shit.

@_Tors @penbo @Colgo The noun “peninsula” does not have an “r”. The adjective “peninsular” does. That’s a Princes education y’see. ;)

@lewellyn But I don’t even know what you do. Apart from the things I hope, secretly, that you DO do.

@leehopkins Oh, I’m all in favour of robust debate. But I still hate the video. http://bit.ly/11Lb4b

Hmmm… I don’t really have enough paying projects lined up for October-December. Must fix that.

@ragnarok1971 You’ve just given me a very good idea, but I can’t possibly mention it in public.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

@DaniBevins Oh, do you really want me to destroy the sense of ambiguity?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DaniBevins

I think I need a little private moment now.

RT @Pollytics: And honestly, who doesn’t secretly wish to be spanked by the Member for Sturt? [Ah, a truer word was never written!]

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news Today’s piece “Why it’s still hard being a bear” http://tr.im/y3Jr is not the queer social anthropology I was expecting. :(

via Twitter Web Client

@ragnarok1971 I think the best thing that can be said about your taste in food, Sir, is that it’s “uncomplicated”. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ragnarok1971

Fish. With pasta. The combination has a certain appeal.

In other exbiting news, I appear to have successfully ressurected my moist telephone. I’m sure you’re all thrilled.

@firstdogonmoon Thank you. I have always understood you to be a man of rectitude.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@firstdogonmoon Oh. Don’t mind me. The Question Time Bingo cards ARE all different. http://tr.im/y3De I am made of FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch part B; maybe to King St if errands require it, otherwise to somewhere else, to write.

via Twitter Web Client

I had to look up what “sententious” actually means. That’s probably a good thing.

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Um, but… doesn’t everyone’s bingo card have to be different, so they call “ORDER!” at different times?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

RT @firstdogonmoon: How good is this? Free First Dog because today we are playing Question Time Bingo! http://tinyurl.com/mksus7

Thanks to @R_Chirgwin, a new “A Series of Tubes” podcast appears. http://tr.im/y3tG Me on four Gs and five 9s; Arbor Networks on security.

@Taezar Ah! There’s a couple of conspiracy refs in the Australia in Space timeline I did for Crikey. http://tr.im/y3tl

@trib OK, well I’ll spam my comment onto your blog too. ;) http://tr.im/y3qw

@SnarkyPlatypus Combined, of course, with the issue of baseballs bats.

Posted a frustrated comment on @leehopkins’ site. http://tr.im/y3iX So sick of Relentless Barrage Of Big Numbers (RBBN) videos. Cliché FTL.

via Twitter Web Client

Apollo, I know you don’t understand why I would want to eat an apple, but I do. Even if it is a plant. That’s why you’re a cat and I’m not.

@kcarruthers Slate reckons the Cupcake Crash is coming. http://tr.im/y3cW Tend to agree. Hat-tip @crikey_news.

Some interesting thoughts on “Owning Eyeballs” from @janchip. http://tr.im/y3by

@ParisSite I was not aware of the Queen of Japan cover. http://tr.im/y3aF Now I am.

I perhaps should not put all of the supplied chilli into this tom yum gai.

“I was made for lovin’ you, baby. You were made for lovin’ me.”

via Twitter Web Client

@leonaskene Sadly, I think a Sydney to Brisbane soup delivery could work against the freshness aspect. ;)

Making Tom Yum Gai for brunch.

@nwjerseyliz Yes, Sydney is in the highly-variable few weeks as winter rolls into spring. @mpesce just whinges about it constantly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nwjerseyliz

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I consider Donna Summer’s “4 Seasons of Love” album to be the authoritative source on seasons.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @SnarkyPlatypus Sydney’s local Aboriginal tribes recognised SIX seasons. http://tr.im/y33f

@paulkidd I really really hope you’re agreeing with me about the animal noises. That would REALLY make my day.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulkidd

@babyexpat @abcdnews I don’t mind a story on sewing, if the hobby has indeed become drastically more popular. Unless it was a PR pitch.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sagabrown

@abcnews Please stop making lame puns in headlines. It’s childish and beneath the dignity of a national broadcaster.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Another improvement could be to have the buttons make animal noises when you press them. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Excellent. And it’s not even 9am yet. The day’s off to a good start!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, now that a couple others have joined me in criticising @trib’s nav system, we all get to form an angry mob and beat him to death.

via Twitter Web Client

@chieftech @trib I shouldn’t HAVE to click around to find out what’s under each button. The button’s label should tell me. Time is money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chieftech

@trib @servantofchaos Kitchen cannisters are labelled “flour”, “sugar” etc, not “bake”, “sweeten”… cleverness is wasted on the proles.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Confused by your website nav. Looking for blog. Is that “Read”, “Discuss”, “Converse” or “Interact”? How do last 3 differ? Slap!

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon I think we have a new segment there for the new-style “Stilgherrian Live”. Shoosh. I didn’t mention that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

Tue plan: Write for Crikey; write client user docs; lunch somewhere lovely; start mapping out a biggish new web development gig; dunno.

via Twitter Web Client

@penbo Actually, it’s @SnarkyPlatypus who has trouble with shoelaces. That’s the Jesuits for you. Pip pip!

@firstdogonmoon Perhaps the “Stabbiness Propensity Guide” should be for other fields too? Politics? TV hosts? Richard Wilkins = 5 daggers.

@SnarkyPlatypus Les chats regardent maintenant les protestants par la fenêtre. Peut-être ils vont apprendre les bonnes manières.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Best. Comment. In. Crikey. Ever. (OK, so it’s from Guy Rundle. Even so.) http://tr.im/y754

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Les chats sont à mâcher trop fort. Ils sont une honte pour eux-mêmes et la réputation de notre famille. Et vous?

@macleanbrendan I am completely warm and dry because I know how to read a weather forecast and weather radar. Also, luck.

RT @ApostrophePong: We (I and @stilgherrian) have decided to go to Newcastle for by train. I hope it makes @unsungsongs happy. [Oh OK]

@commuter_dirge I have indeed met @Warlach, and I would never question his proportion of waterbuffality. It’s PERSONAL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to commuter_dirge

@maverickwoman @trib I’d call it 1991. Tim Berners-Lee only finished all the WWW software at Christmas 1990. http://tr.im/y46a

via Twitter Web Client

@Warlach Apparently you are just one consonant short of being a water buffalo. Ask @firstdogonmoon. Squeep!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@BernardKeane I think the “sum yun gai” joke has already been done to death, though the pun on “chicken” could be explored more.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

The Cupcake Camp video is also on Vimeo, and also better compressed there, says @ApostrophePong. http://tr.im/y44a

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Why do I care now about something I can’t see until late October? I can’t remember that far ahead!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

You know how I said I probably shouldn’t put ALL that chilli into this morning’s tom yum gai? Well, I did. And I was right.
