@jdub I may give Nambu another try. It lacked some feature I wanted last time I looked. Maybe it has it now.

@jdub Tweetdeck’s “international” font setting is what you seek. As I told @SnarkyPlatypus recently, Tweetdeck is “bogan by default”.

@Warlach I did have “‘Good riddance,” some will say” in the article, but I cut it for length. I must’ve been channeling you.

@jasonlangenauer I do like “ensoupilated”, tho perhaps it sounds too close to “depilated”. Maybe I’m just “souped up”?

In the state of having eaten soup.

@Colvinius @BenFordham Has anyone reported on the affair between John Della Bosca, Christopher Pyne and Malcolm Turnbull’s dogs?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Colvinius

@bryceroney Um, “even” the ACTU had something to say on the NBN? They are a major lobby, and a $43B project = lotsa jobs .

@barrysaunders Oh, I have a mostly-written response to you sitting there, dated some time in 1837. I will review and hit “Send” today.

@SnarkyPlatypus I wasn’t actually envisaging the pills being for Phil Burgess, but now that you mention it… that could be ALMOST as good.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Reminding myself of Phil Burgess is upsetting me. There must be some sort of pill that can fix this.

US advertising spend, first half 2009 vs first half 2008. http://tr.im/ychH Only cable TV up. Internet ads drop least, B2B mags down 32%.

@derekbradley Facebook, Hotmail… a caller said Gmail… all sorts of vastly improved scams on the Internets! Ah, Springtime for Hackers!

I did manage to mention goats in the interview, though, even though it was about IT security. Just the once. It’s a talent.

via Twitter Web Client

On hold for ABC Radio 891 Adelaide, about to be interviewed, not about goats, and listenable at http://tr.im/yc8t

via Twitter Web Client

@Opheli8 Why on earth would I add “-goat”? That would REDUCE the number of goats! That wold be SILLY!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Opheli8

Listening to ABC Radio 891 Adelaide at http://tr.im/yc8t to get myself into the right zone for chatting with The Bald Brothers in 15 mins.

Not every Google search is improved by adding “goat” to your search terms. True.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pense que je veux faire un film appelé “Les Chèvres Sans Fin”. Avec Limahl. http://tr.im/yc5p

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Apparently I will be on ABC Radio 891 Adelaide in about half an hour talking about goats. Or maybe it was Facebook. One of the two.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Sinon, peut-être vous vous sentez comme une chèvre à la fin de Flashdance? http://tr.im/yc2t

@franksting I would re-read “The Third Policeman”, except that it would involve effort and also require more whiskey.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@SnarkyPlatypus I find that it’s much easier to use the Spice Girls for passive-aggressive gestures than, say, Oasis.

@p_perez Whenever I wonder about things, I ask the Googles, or the Bings, and they tell me the answer. Often, the correct answer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to p_perez

@franksting Oh dear, I haven’t read any Flann O’Brien for a million years! I loved Sergeant Pluck’s atomic theory of the bicycle.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Except that the connectivity figured itself out. We had pig and asparagus and Swiss brown mushrooms and video.

via Twitter Web Client

Disappointed that poor connectivity through iiNet to ABC iView will prevent us watching what we wanted to watch.

via Twitter Web Client

We’re about to go home and do something unnatural with a pig. And asparagus. Just picture it for yourselves!

@grum You, Sir, should be moderately ashamed of yourself. But then, that’s nothing new. I should be ashamed too.

@mrsnickhodge What, you were telling @yin_yin that hookers are cheaper than phone sex lines? Such a modern, thoughtful mother!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mrsnickhodge

@yin_yin Look! Labels! Standard office stationery! http://tr.im/y8Pa Many sizes available!

via Twitter Web Client

As an aside, “The Economics of Sex Work” http://tr.im/y8OC fits what I learned when researching this for ABC Radio way back.

via Twitter Web Client

It continually intrigues me that a 1900 phone sex line is far more expensive than actual sex with an actual hooker.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @barrysaunders “Available in Australia” is one of those irregular adjectives… ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@DDsD @SnarkyPlatypus Personal phone calls are OK, but at $2 a minute they do tend to rack up the charges.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting If I have anything that is HUMUNGOUS, it’s not what I get paid by Crikey. Let alone a “salary”. :P

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@yin_yin “Paper I can print on and then stick to things?”, Um, it’s called “computer labels”, from any office supply store.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to yinettesys

@natachasuttor Well, Optus, 3 and Vodafone are hardly even there, so by any measure Telstra is still leading the pack.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natachasuttor

@mediahunter I have been told by @ApostrophePong that we’re going to Newcastle for , yes. It was not explained who’s paying. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mediahunter

RT @jasonlangenauer: Smile you miserable bastards, life can’t be that bad.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Crikey is always an interesting read. The fact that they pay me money sometimes would never affect my decision to say that, no.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@mpesce I completely get Telstra wanting to flag a change of direction, but tossing 4 years of content into the memory hole is silly.

via Twitter Web Client

@natachasuttor Actually, Telstra is (was?) most advanced of the Big Four telcos in social media. This may just be a single mis-step.

@smartbrain Ah! Your knowledge of Thailand’s comms laws will of course exceed mine. Any links to good starting-points (in English)?

It is my intention to take a short walk to somewhere I may write quietly for a moment, accompanied by a glass of red wine.

@smartbrain Hah! The 4G roll-out doesn’t START until March 2010. Assuming in-schedule. 1/10th the size of BKK, plus richer.

@gtveloce Carmel Tebbutt told me problem was Newtown station was linked to old tram sheds as one planning item. Couldn’t get consensus.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to gtveloce

@mayorofnewtown My pleasure. I’ve also asked Heritage Branch for an on-the-record response. We all play our part… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mayorofnewtown

Retagged: Heritage Branch doesn’t have Newtown station plans online, have to visit Sydney or Parramatta. http://tr.im/ycD6

via Twitter Web Client

Well, or to Town Hall House in the Sydney CBD. Still, what’s so hard about putting a few documents online, Heritage Branch?

via Twitter Web Client

Ha! NSW Heritage Branch IS archaic. To view Newtown station plans, must go to Parramatta 0900-1600 M-F. http://tr.im/ycD6 FAIL!

Oh finally! Renovation plans for Newtown station! http://tr.im/ycAu

@htgoldcoast There is also no suggestion that Kyle Sandilands had anything to do with Michael McGurk’s murder either.
