Ah good, I only have 7.5GB of data to back up since Tuesday. I could probably type that back in if I needed to. Ahem.

via Twitter Web Client

@ssharwood I believe @ApostrophePong went with Western Digital Passport for working data, will back up to his WD MyBook Studio RAID 1.

Best lost & found notice this week: “Have you seen this telegraph pole?” http://bit.ly/siZKt

via Twitter Web Client

On that note, I think I might run my own backup now, before heading for lunch. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@mjec In this case the data does need to move between home office and edit suite. But backups were only done at home, weekly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mjec

@mjec Perhaps, but weekly backups mean you have to re-do up to a week’s work if you roll back to the backup.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mjec

@ssharwood Um, we’re talking full HD video here. Cloud backups are WAY too slow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ssharwood

Everyone please take note of @ApostrophePong’s story: WEEKLY BACKUPS ARE NOT ENOUGH! http://bit.ly/h9Cjo

Crikey story filed! Erk! Brain explodes!

@ParisSite @pressdarling @gtveloce @gnoll110 @seancarmody @SnarkyPlatypus Stop it. Stop it, all of you. You are not helping.

@BernardKeane Yes, a raven punch is better than a donkey punch. That has really helped me write about Senator Minchin now. Bastard.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

I now have the mental image of being pecked to death by Senator Nick Minchin. It’s ludicrous. But I think I might have to go with it.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh fuck. Mixed metaphor. I write about ravens circling, but then throwing the first punch. I am full of fail.

@derekbradley @IanKath Wikipedia’s article on Treasure Trove needs more than a skim to understand. http://bit.ly/QDMay He can expect reward.

@derekbradley The story says he’s splitting the find with the farmer who owns the land. Not sure what UK law says about this.

Dear Lazyweb, how good’s the crypto in Apple’s Keychain? Would you trust it with clients’ server root passwords?

@WoollyMittens The Australian dust storms made news all over, it seems. And yes, car and window washers were very busy afterwards.

Oh God! Alan Kohler has emailed everyone about how he’s listenting to more Joy Division. Stock market crash imminent!

@mpesce Ah, when you say “mark my words” they’re marked by @markyourwords. Another world-saving invention!

@WoollyMittens Hello from a slightly pink Sydney. @mpesce is whinging, but that’s pretty much all he does.

@grum OK, you have just posted the best video in the universe ever. http://bit.ly/6yB2X I have to watch it again.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grum

@seancarmody Well REAL holes, those which are pool halls for drug dealers f’rinstance, at least have a certain honesty about them.

@nanopunk “Diss my burb”? Well, apart from the faux niggaspeak, that’s precisely my point: Of all the places to meet, The Clock? FFS!

@MattBalara I get it! It’s kinda like a portable Dutch oven! Awesome!

@MattBalara What is this “film” thing of which you speak?

@redshoes: “Do we invite pubs to win our awesomeness on a Friday?” Well, it’s a competitive business. Short answer: yes. Compete.

@smperris Where are you based again? I’ve found the key is patronising a local business that cares about its regulars.

RT @grum: i love working out in the sun but it makes working on a laptop impossible with the glare. solutions? [Alcohol? Speed?]

@ScottRhodie I agree. But if the venue pays minimum wage so staff are shitty, and no pleasant atmosphere, they don’t get my money.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ScottRhodie

@franksting Some pubs in Sydney give great service. You just have to get out of CBD / Surry Hills where they have a sense of entitlement.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@ScottRhodie Maybe he had a crap day, indeed. But it’s his JOB to make people feel welcome and entice them to come back.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ScottRhodie

@franksting @afficionados_hh There are venues which would 1. appreciate 50+ punters and 2. show some respect. Not the Clock.

via Twitter Web Client

@ScottRhodie Last time I was at , the guy clearing back bar at midnight was aggressive, neither smiled nor said thank-you. Filth.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ScottRhodie

@franksting @afficionados_hh Indeed. If a group brings 50 people into a venue to spend $, show some thanks. Or least respect.

via Twitter Web Client

@ScottRhodie Ah yes, habits are hard to break. :) But a yobbo-filled aggressive-staffed pub is not where I want to unwind week’s end. YMMV.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ScottRhodie

@afficionados_hh @ScottRhodie If the focus is Surry Hills, which it is, I reckon there’s enough people to colonise a new venue.

via Twitter Web Client

@afficionados_hh I don’t have to go to , true, but it could work a LOT better with another venue. People are fine, venue less so.

@seancarmody Hah! @GreenJ is on holidays. He’s only interested in cocaine and hookers. Or, as a family man, “Gardening Australia”.

@dhgarske Oddly enough, $50 is the value of the upfuckage in question. How did you know?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dhgarske

I know it’s an appliance company, but a radio advert saying “Spend $4000 on Smeg” still sounds… diseased.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce I warn you, The Clock Hotel is a hole. The worst kind of mass-market beer barn there is. should consider a new venue IMHO.

via Twitter Web Client

Discovering administrative upfuckage from a year ago which means I owe people money. Not a lot of money, but still… depressing.

@SnarkyPlatypus Aujourd’hui est le jour de la chèvre, et non le jour du poisson. Cela doit être rappelé.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Hmmm… The Google back-translation of my last tweet is not only a little wrong, it’s also a little disturbing.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je me demande pourquoi il est si frustrant pour organiser le poisson. Ils sont difficiles! Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@derekbradley By the definitions, it would appear to be Treasure. BBC slightly wrong: “trove” was dropped from legal descriptor in 1997.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbradley

@derekbradley @IanKath If not deemed Treasure, it’s his / the farmer’s. If it is, Crown usually pays market value for items to museums.
