@GeordieGuy True, those protocols are for any carriers. Using pigeons is just a lazy default, I know. My head is hanging in shame.

It appears the pigeon-Internet protocol of RFC 1149 http://bit.ly/aWPBP was updated in 1999 to provide QoS http://bit.ly/wR6Wa

@SnarkyPlatypus: “A 8-ball of speed with a flask of Xantini?” Well, it’s a start I suppose… [shuffles feet]

via Twitter Web Client

I think I would like to purchase a new set of sleep patterns.

@wolfcat Um, “daylight savings abortion reform”? How would that work, exactly?

@NewtonMark If the ABC had any balls, the Twitter back channel would be scrolling across the screen live.

Six million women have doubled the size of their lashes. Well, that’s good then.

@SnarkyPlatypus “Pynehorne” is a very special word. I’ve just been thinking about it. Thinking about it a lot.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Any sentence that contains both “rohypnol” and “goat” is a wonder. Just one more word would make it perfect. Guess which?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus What if the goat is asleep? Or otherwise, um, incapacitated?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I have many skills which should impress you. May I demonstrate a brief representative selection?

@glengyron My entire perception of everything is broken. It is ALL beyond repair. But maybeI can still con a few people.

He was wearing red basketball shows (Converse) and hair tied back, does that cancel out the bandana? I don’t know these things.

via Twitter Web Client

So what does a black bandana in the rear right jeans pocket mean again?

I have no choice over what I listen to. I am a puppet of… of everything. I am absorbing the Messages.

“Call 13 24 10… What do you think people say behind your back?”

Why does everyone on commercial radio shout all the time?

Commercial Radio Learnings: Australian households spend more on gambling than gas and electricity, and something about 4kg of cocaine.

The traffic reporter sounds disappointed that there’s been no crashes to disrupt traffic on Sydney’s roads. She must die.

Holocaust and incest jokes not a good “fit” with the “Windows brand”. Go, Family Guy! http://bit.ly/swuvs

Sorry, why do I have to pretend to be a baby cow? I don’t understand commercial radio. Also, “Moo!”

via Twitter Web Client

@Headwellred Being “cool” and “funny” doesn’t pay the bills, Hon! Snake oil is a sensible retirement plan. Compared with the other one.

“Twitter will molest you.” http://bit.ly/2eBQUh Indeed.

RT @grantshow: http://twitpic.com/ncqx1 - It’s coming…. [And there are no screaming babies. Yet.]

via Twitter Web Client

@stephenconroy It’s OK. @Colvinus can be Voice of Reason at Media140. I will just absorb and reflect the Zeitgeist. A whole bucket of it.

Drinking an entire bottle of snake oil, in preparation for Media140. It goes down s m o o t h !

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; King St errands?; then back to a desk of writing, somewhere.

@BernardKeane It appears that the Crikey website is several kinds of broken all at once, which does not bode well.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

Dear cPanel, why is your “empty directory” button, which DELETES email without recourse, coloured GREEN?

via Twitter Web Client

@grantshow As the oldest of 7, you’ve already had your chance to take revenge. ;)

@erkpod Some people NEED a lot more self-education than you. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@erkpod Conferences work well for people who need their self-education to be in structured, concentrated bursts, I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@erkpod People pay for all sorts of rubbish if it’s packaged and marketed well. Need I list examples?

@misswired If you have photos of me on Flickr, by all mean tag them. I’m quite happy with that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to misswired

@artsdigitalera I’ve asked to be kept informed, anyway. :) Intriguing process, anyway, so I’d perhaps write about it if not a player.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to feesable

@SnarkyPlatypus True, $160k doesn’t buy much Geek, depending on level. It’s a subsidy, not the full cost.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Thank you, @misswired, for this new and perhaps alarming photo of me. What is my emotion here? http://bit.ly/3Q834x

via Twitter Web Client

An Australia Council-funded “Geek in Residence” program eh? Intriguing. http://bit.ly/4wQC42 HT @artsdigitalera

@CitrixLicensing Well, I know as much about the incident as in the article. However it IS the man’s job there’s probably thought behind it.

Fri plan: A desk day, with project-planning and writing, broken only by a brief local errand and lunch; evening unallocated, probably quiet.

@CitrixLicensing On the drugs, the chap is saying it’s because of their inherent nature, not ease of access.
