Interview done! Amused that the last question I was asked was “Will there be a ‘Stilgherrian LIve tonight?” Fucking ABC Radio! ;)

OH: “Do you know how many pills she had at Splendour? Like, 8 pills, and then she got sick. And she’s still sick.”

@alpharia Well, ACMA takedown notices are an exercise in futility, full stop.

According to the empty cartons, that house has just bought matching Guns’n’Roses and AC/DC bar stools. Class.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; autobus via King St to Broadway; 1530 ABC Ultimo; 1600 loose near Railway Square. Be afraid. Be very afraid.

@ApostrophePong I don’t know that it’s MY cat litter, exactly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

I will shortly depart for my 3.30pm interview at ABC Ultimo. Anyone over that way after 4pm?

via Twitter Web Client

Hilarious! Mention 4chan and Twitterbots called @anonnnnnnnnn rewteet it. It’s as if Twitter doesn’t have a search function!

via Twitter Web Client

@steven_noble Alas, I have no idea whet the, erm, medical condition is in that photo. I suspect I don’t want to know.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to steven_noble

@damonism The link was not to 4chan. Even if it were, that’s not an AFP-seize-computers thing, but an ACMA takedown notice.

@mpesce I think everybody would feel even MOAR BETTERER had @crikey_news retained my link to the culprit’s website. ;)

@franksting Oddly enough, an opt-in micropayment system, as you put it, is “under consideration” for a refreshed “Stilgherrian Live”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@glengyron I’m not so much worried about clashing “Q&A”, there’s a million channels. But the program does wipe out late arvo / night.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

@SilkCharm “Adoring audience” is all well and good, but they don’t pay the bills or clean out the cat litter, do they?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SilkCharm

@mtats My dodgy link did not appear in Crikey. But a search for the site’s name will soon reveal it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

@gabfran The cats, they do not fart. Well, not because of the beans. They have little understand of or interest in beans.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

@Tarale I’m not sure whether I’m doing a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight or not. I am feeling uninspired today, to tell the truth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Tarale

@glengyron I suspect I’m more like “House MD” than “CSI”, for several reasons.

Minestrone, Day 2. This household is personally contributing 15% of Australia’s greenhouse gas emissions.

@VixofTLS @andrewdotnich It says the images are a “video stream”, so I’m guessing it can be a webcam. Get it at http://tr.im/yiYs

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @michaelmeloni Yes, it captures images. And 30fps video. 640x480, 130x magnification. http://tr.im/yiYs

Do I want a USB digital microscope for $55?

via Twitter Web Client

Y’see, @GreenJ clicked on a link in my Crikey piece today and now says he’s never talking to me again. I wonder whether the link will stay.

via Twitter Web Client

@mtats When I said “DDoD” before I meant to type “DDoS”, but I know you knew that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

Apprently I will be at the ABC in Ultimo at 3.30pm this arvo to record something for that electric wireless telephony broadcast thing.

via Twitter Web Client

@mtats Yes, as in DDoD != Hacked. “There was no unauthorised access to the site’s infrastructure.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mtats

@mpesce @NewtonMark I just spoke with Attorney-General’s Dept. Nothing was “hacked”. See Crikey today. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Waiting for the Attorney-General’s Department to call me back. They’re such lovely people.

via Twitter Web Client

@kcarruthers Ah, the old “our suburb is too nice to have crime” fallacy, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

@sammyjopeters Yes, your example is one kind, specifically an adverbial clause. “Stilgherrian cried because he scraped his knee.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sammyjopeters

RT @captain_beef: Is that like one of Santa’s elves? [Oh yes, I do like Santa and the Subordinate Clauses!]

via Twitter Web Client

@sammyjopeters To avoid execution, read this. http://tr.im/ynLv Wikipedia prefers the term “dependent clause”, for some reason.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sammyjopeters

OH FFS IF YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT A SUBORDINATE CLAUSE IS THEN YOU REALLY DO DESERVE TO DIE!

When I said the Michael McGurk murder was getting curiouser and curiouser, I didn’t mean THIS curiouser! http://tr.im/ynwp

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ll scout it out tonight. I think I could get sponsorship or other support for those live tweet sessions. It’s Art!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I could do a “gonzo” live tweet from the eastern ‘burbs. People liked the originals. http://tr.im/ynpA and http://tr.im/ynpX

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, this is Sydney’s Charing Cross. It’s really Waverley. http://tr.im/ynox Where will I have a TGIF vodka after that?

via Twitter Web Client

Prime time in Facebook is Monday to Wednesday, with a chart. http://tr.im/ynmG

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: Desk morning of various loose ends; errands and lunch; record “A Series of Tubes”; 3pm client Outlook support Charing Cross; TGIF.

Sydney Buses proposes a new MetroBus route 30 from Mosman to Enmore. That’ll cause anti-matter annihilation http://tr.im/ynhm

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis entièrement disposé de spéléologie, de cordes et de petites lampes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je me sens inadéquate. Vous êtes un exemple pour nous tous. Dieu merci, c’est vendredi.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Home. Finally. [exit]

Commas are important. So are colons. Look, it had to be said.

via Twitter Web Client

As you may have guessed, I have found electricity.

via Twitter Web Client

@ThePlasticAge Sorry, Sir, are you suggesting some sort of mass group necrophilia ritual? I mean, just to be clear.

via Twitter Web Client

Is there any reason why we shouldn’t round up all backpackers and bulldoze them into a trench of some sort?

via Cloudhopper

Uhoh. Spare phone battery not charged. I am about to lose the Internets. You are about to lose me. You must try to cope, somehow, petals.

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris @mpesce Well, let’s just say last night’s “attack” was courtesy of “Operation Didgeridie” and you can Google it on Bing. NSFW.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce But, if you nominated pseudo-Anonymous, I would want to show everyone the photo of the Disturbing Genital Condition!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

@firstdogonmoon @SnarkyPlatypus Agreed. Today’s cartoon could well become a fine graphic novel. You and @BernardKeane should go on retreat.

via Twitter Web Client

My decisions is that there will NOT be a “Stilgherrian Live” tonight. You will have to cope somehow.

via Twitter Web Client

OMFG! There’s something WRONG on the Internet!

via Twitter Web Client

@charispalmer My story did get subbed, but canon/cannon is subtle. They were more worried about the link to the disturbing genital photo.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to charispalmer

@safzoro Thank you. “Loose-cannon loser” was means to have a certain rhythm. I read all my writing out aloud for the final edit.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to safzoro

@awrd @smperris Ha! I’m currently in the Clare Hote… I mean, a quiet park deciding about “Stilgherrian Live”. Feeling very CBFed though.

via Twitter Web Client

I did mean “loose cannon”. They are not the same thing. Not by a long shot.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear. In my Crikey piece today I refer to a “loose canon”. And I’m not even Catholic. My head is hung in shame.

via Twitter Web Client

@ApostrophePong @Warlach @craigthomler Sadly, an ABC TARDIS only allows you to talk to some hidden voice. http://tr.im/yjxL
