@bragi0 A crowd. A multitude. A mob. A herd. A dozen. A lot. What the fuck is not to understand?

via Twitter Web Client

@bragi0 ‘How is “a lot” better then “alot”’. Even without a question mark, “a” indefinite article plus “lot” meaning “large number”.

via Twitter Web Client

Was my last tweet too aggressive? To… rude?

via Twitter Web Client

@komedio “Bulk follow friends”? Do you even know what the word “friend” means? Piss off, you parasitic cunt!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to komedio

@grum Oh, yes, “a lot” (meaning “many”) as a single word “alot”. Just fucking kill them. Painfully. Repeatedly. Until they’re really dead.

via Twitter Web Client

@grum As an aside, @SnarkyPlatypus can’t pronounce “masturbate” properly. He makes it rhyme with “mast” of a ship. O! Pax Britannia FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@barrysaunders Yes, he does have an anti-ESL bias. Maybe we can beat that out of him in the comments.

via Twitter Web Client

@grum For me, the capital crimes are “loose” instead of “lose”, and that other one that I can’t think of right now.

@mpesce Look, do I have to explain how the Internet works to you AGAIN? This is becoming tedious!

Dear Twitterverse, Australian firms doing website usage “ratings” are: Neilsen, Hitwise and who else? [Suffering brainfade.]

RT @Warlach: Reminds me of my favourite pick up line: “Does this rag smell like chloroform?”

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @Tagalongtess @Pollytics To make Possum Kebabs, you’d need to get a sword or a metal skewer and… not, don’t think it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Uhoh. We just used the word “bozo”. Without prior consultation. Should I be concerned?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Warlach I have a little something which may help your headache. Or at least help you forget.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@mpesce Yes, Twitter is down. We are not using it. [Christ, what a bozo…]

Mobile (but not far): Enmore Rd; lunch; errands if required; planning a client project while sitting somewhere with an interesting view.

Phone interview done! Now, shower then lunch then whatever else it was that I had to do this afternoon.

@benmoretti It may now be 15 cents a gigabyte, but I wonder what the reliability levels of the drive are like? Still, just buy spare drives.

@derekbradley My first HDD was Apple’s Hard Disk 20. That’s 20MB. http://bit.ly/9YbJD Can’t remember what it cost.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbradley

@joshuamck ROFL! The 2TB drive comes in an enclosure that supports up to 1.5TB drives? Maybe not such a bargain then. [smirks]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to joshuamck

Gawd. Seagate 2TB external drive (USB & eSATA) for AUD 299. http://bit.ly/K4WKe Suddenly I feel very old.

@lewellyn There’s part of me which wants to ask for more background information there. But there’s another part which does not.

RT @barrysaunders: RT @enkiv2: Ayn Rand was the Stephen Colbert of the 1950s. [My head just assploded.]

@lewellyn Everything takes longer for Americans. Except possibly hamburgers. And lynchings.

@JohnBirmingham Thanks, John, I hadn’t heard of MacSpeech Dictate before. It could be VERY useful for me. Thanks fr being a guinea pig.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnBirmingham

Thank you, @BiteTheDust, for “Can Sheepdogs Round Up Magpies?” http://bit.ly/vRjSs I do still love that photo!

via Twitter Web Client

@JohnBirmingham Which dictation software did you end up getting? I was toying with using an outsourced transcription service.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JohnBirmingham

@philipargy I seem to have the typing demons affecting me today. :/ I think it’s because I keep changing keyboards.

@mediahunter I’m not sure newspapers CAN win me back. Maybe they need to think about “news” and “features”, not “newspapers”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mediahunter

@mediahunter I don’t read newspapers any more. Fiddling with page size is hardly likely to lure me back. Deckchairs, Titanic etc.

via Twitter Web Client

Ah, Tuesday, is it? I think some heavy-duty William Shatner is called for. http://bit.ly/ClJii Dodgy video though.

@agent_x You should be ashamed of yourself. That’s not necessarily about your bad pun. It’s just general life advice.

@seancarmody Well, I do live the JPY version. But then there’s a story involving me and JPY which… um… no, another time. Or maybe never.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

Or maybe it’s time to remind everyone of the awesomeness of Mr William Alan Shatner! http://bit.ly/pkE8C

@SnarkyPlatypus Do you prefer Rolf Harris doing “Bohemian Rhapsody”? http://bit.ly/2S54Q0

@seancarmody I did play the DAAS version. I personally like the Beatnix version http://bit.ly/14Wzi2 or Kate Ceberano http://bit.ly/15A2Fc

@SnarkyPlatypus Do you really want a video of Rolf Harris touching himself? Really?

@grum I dream of being punished by you. Every Tuesday, in that blurry moment before I’m fully awake. And then I need to get a towel.

@latikambourke How come it’s still broad daylight now and your photo is at night? http://twitpic.com/i5f26 Can you TIME TRAVEL?

People who only sell software online but illustrate it with a retail box are losers. Stupid landfill-grade losers.

via Twitter Web Client

@daz77 @agent_x @MacYourselfhome Yes, yes… hummingbirds (who can’t talk, well not to me anyway) and hovercraft drivers. Ho fucking ho.

via Twitter Web Client

@damonism Hover also means I can accidentally trigger an annoying video / sound just by moving the cursor to click on something else. Grrr!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to damonism

Stupid ad: “Hover to watch the videos”. I can’t hover. I’m not a helicopter. Who apart from web professionals says “hover”?

via Twitter Web Client

I should have said “single-ply” not “singly-ply” toilet paper, but I do like the sound of “singly-ply” as a word.

via Twitter Web Client

I feel a blog post coming on. Also, who bought the singly-ply toilet paper? That was a mistake.

via Twitter Web Client

@mediahunter Or SMH needs to be relationship-oriented. What do you, Fairfax, do for me in my life? Maybe there isn’t anything any more.
