Pleased that I’m still Google #2 for “used knickers”, and #1 for that search on Google Images. Life is good.

@RickyMaveety Yes, the Bracelet Fail object is indeed a sex toy. This link may help, if not at work or in church. http://bit.ly/iLvQa

@caspiansmith Thanks. I agree that more openness of court process could lead to more “plain English”, which can only be better.

The redoubtable @MargaretSimons updates the “Twitter in court” story. Where is @AndrewColley? http://bit.ly/4wZwKT

@Nickhodge I’d always imagined that penguins would be done more or less as sushi.

@wendy_hogan @glengyron @plasmaegg Thank you. It’s always fun to have a variety of outlets and styles for one’s ‘umble rants.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wendy_hogan

@firstdogonmoon @sophblack I do have a preference for saucy penguins. Wait. That sounds wrong.

@Nickhodge “Serious Journalism Gig”? Nah, I’m just a slut for words. Or is that a word-slut for money? Or something.

@LiamT If the Oz stopped @AndrewColley tweeting then it’s a bit of an own goal. Tweets were a constant reminder to read his yarns.

@seanpryor NP. Another good use is virtual machines for testing, many pre-loaded configurations, which you can roll back to after play.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seanpryor

@seanpryor In my case, having to occasionally run Vista without having a whole separate computer, just my MacBook Pro, is bonus.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seanpryor

@seanpryor There’s plenty of good points to VMware, yes. But whether it’s right for your client depends on what the ultimate goal is…

@seamus @expectproblems I hate editing myself when I’m sounding cheerful, repeatedly, when I have a hangover and want to kill.

I see that my Vista VMware virtual machine has found yet another reason to require a restart.

@eddit0r Tis party is at 9.30am so, alas, I suspect there’s no “reasonable amount of free piss”. I will make enquiries, however.

@Emesel I do indeed mean that kind of Circular Quay 2am New Year’s Day anthropological fun. Or Australia Day. http://bit.ly/4qE5Mg

Deciding if I want to go to Microsoft Australia’s Windows 7 launch party. Could be fun from an anthropological viewpoint.

@leslie_nassar “Torrens River, medical waste, and hideously deformed Yabbies”? That’s not a prank, that’s the Adelaide lifestyle!

via Twitter Web Client

@leslie_nassar I’m very tempted to invent a fake Internet prank as a prank, just to prove the point.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, and anyone using VLC, just paste this link to get the stream. http://bit.ly/ywd1W Thanks, @WoollyMittens.
