@daev Heh! I hope you still agree with “nice one” when it’s published. ;) But I’ve written a bunch for Crikey before. http://bit.ly/fTcQ1

@SnarkyPlatypus “Grincheux.” est un tel mot délicieuse. Je ne sais pas combien de temps j’ai dormi, il a été très intermittent.

@ozdj Oh the “set your timezone to Tehran” idiocy! Don’t get me started!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Le blâmer est tel un vilain mot. Je préfère “l’inspiration”. Comment êtes-vous ce matin?

Also, Apollo is being rowdy ‘cos we won’t let him outside post-surgery. And we won’t for another week or more

@Pollytics I wish it was just that, but alas the insomnia is rampant.

Astounding video mix. A shame the music is cheesy. It’ll doubtless be a hit. http://bit.ly/3MDaMw

Why would anyone care about a Civic Video store full stop?

via Twitter Web Client

Why would anyone care that a Civic Video store is “under new management”?

@FixedR6 Ah. There’s very little that dould convince me to waste my time in what is the bullshit self-referential wankery of Second Life.

Happily, @Warlach and @SilkCharm have provided fuel for my next month of sexual fantasies.

via Twitter Web Client

@natecochrane Hmmm… I’m happy to use URL shorteners in tweets because I see tweets as ephemeral. I don’t care if they die tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Agreed. URL shorteners means there’s another thing which can fail and break the links.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

@natecochrane Have you got linkage to your concerns about URL shorteners?

@renailemay Are you aware that when I phone your switchboard number at CBS Interactive it rings out? Who do I slap?

@natecochrane Yes, I know the “paywalls break the internet” theory. I think it confuses transport layer with content layer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

The “Men of the Public Service” calendar competition is… scary. http://bit.ly/1GhkLn HT @crikey_news, kinda.

via Twitter Web Client

@natecochrane Paywalls aren’t Fail per se. I was writing more about the exit-Google plan when (some) news is commodity.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to natecochrane

RT @crikey_news: It’s first-comment-held on the blogs. [Which is WordPress default anyway.]

via Twitter Web Client

@peterhau I don’t know Crikey’s moderation process. Maybe ask @crikey_news or @GreenJ? Maybe it’s first-comment-held?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterhau

@natecochrane I think everything is the Crikey email is paywalled until @GreenJ decides which stories are not. I think. The Frog knows all.

The Irony Curtain has fallen! My “Dear Rupert, this is how the internet works. Google it.” is no longer paywall’d. http://bit.ly/1nUVRt

@GreenJ Ah, this mean you will bring down the Irony Curtain? ;) HT @BiteTheDust.

@jdub How dare you confuse me with facts that are factually factual facts!

I’m in Crikey talking Murdoch’s paywall and de-Googling, ironically behind a paywall. But Googleable. http://bit.ly/1nUVRt

I need a Venn diagram. And a gun.

@unsungsongs Heh! I also figured you’d actually SEE it today, rather than being lost in the wedding day chaos. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

@unsungsongs Also, I have not said it yet: Congratulations to you and your wonderful lady Narinda! [blokey hug]

@glengyron I wasn’t invited as Crikey, but ‘cos I presented at the Walkley Public affairs conference. Are @crikey_news people coming up?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to glengyron

I’m guessing that “I’m from the media” doesn’t work for getting into the Walkley Awards free, given that EVERYONE is from the media.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @unsungsongs: You might get a chance to punch out Glenn Milne!? [Now that’d be worth the price of admission alone!]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, it’s $165 a ticket, discounts for tables of 10. Plus what to wear? Still, I could liveblog it for the lulz. Wanna come?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @Warlach: You could say you misread it as Black Face and make a comment about the reporting of the “Hey Hey” fiasco…[Hah!]

via Twitter Web Client

I’ve been invited, but can I afford to go to the Walkley Awards? Can I even do “black tie”?

@tristankenney @andrewbarnett Thanks for your help, but I won’t look at it again today. It’s not critical.

via Twitter Web Client

@tristankenney @andrewbarnett Thanks for that regex tester. http://bit.ly/1wR3D Alas, it says my pattern is correct, but it still fails.

“News v Google: the tale of the tape” from @GreenJ http://bit.ly/1xuiFa And @ysambart likes my comment, thank you.

@andrewbarnett That regex didn’t work whether I escaped the { } or not. I will come back to it later methinks.

Impressed that a spammer passes links through StumbleUpon before its final destination.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeffsonstein To match an email subject starting with “{Spam?}” I should need “^{Spam\?} .*$” but it is failing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Regex is truy awesome but my regexfu is sadly wobbly this morning. I behaves not how I would wish.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeffsonstein

@ozdj Indeed. As if one of the best online intelligence forces in the world couldn’t tell if a tweet came from Iran or not. Fuckwits.
