@anthonybaxter My whole fucking life is “inappropriate content”. :(

via Twitter Web Client in reply to anthonybaxter

@techydude Yes. @abcmarkscott and I are so very, very similar. It’s his turn to invite me to lunch and an interview, anyway. ;)

WTF? William S Burroughs and Gloria Gaynor were Scientologists? http://bit.ly/1oENGx [Fixed link, HT @jdub.]

Hmmm… Did the video/audio of my talk at Media140 Sydney end up anywhere on the intertubes? I’[d like to know what I said.

via Twitter Web Client

@techydude Perhaps. But people don’t use videos of dancing goats to inform their corporate strategies. Which is a shame, I know.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to techydude

@stephenconroy I’m with you, but “factoid” has morphed its meaning a bit now. http://bit.ly/JIeTr

via Twitter Web Client

No no no no! Please don’t play “Tequila Sunrise” right now! Ah, tequila… [drifts off]

via Twitter Web Client

Well, @trib, as I’ve said before and will probably say again, “Factoids are not insights.”

via Twitter Web Client

RT @stephenconroy: If all the people who linked to that video was a country, I’d be massing tanks at the border.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh dear, did @abcmarkscott link to that annoying, statistics-mangling “Social Media Revolution” video? Yes, he did.

“Are You Ready To Lose Your Privacy?” by @NewtonMark is well worth reading. http://bit.ly/1m0MoO

@frankfil Yes, those figures match my understanding of iiNet’s size as 3rd-largest ISP. Mind you, I could’ve just bloody well asked them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to frankfil

@frankfil iiNet’s 750k “services” could well be 370k “customers”. My invoice lists 3 services”: phone, ADSL2+, IP addresses.

@R_Chirgwin I daresay my colleague with the audio file upfuckage would be happy with a command-line tool.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

@derekbarry Given that he started his Twitter-hate experiment before lists were available, I think your point is moot.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to derekbarry

@frankfil Yes, iiNet’s direct debits have invoice numbers and, indeed, emailed invoices. DD is about payment, not invoicing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to frankfil

Experiment: Unfollow all your friends, replace them with hate-filled nut-jobs. http://bit.ly/298mBk HT @kcarruthers

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung You don’t send invoices to people who aren’t current customers. ;) Invoice numbers, not account numbers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

iiNet invoice numbers sequential? Deduct last month’s from this month’s, looks like 370,697 customers. Sound right?

@D_Keating Mark Morford has a… disturbing way with words. And I love it. I think.

OMGWTFBBQ! Antony Green has finally caved in and created @ABCElections! QUAKE IN FEAR AT HIS MIGHTY BRAIN!

Well, @jasonlangenauer @thewinchesterau I do pity JavaScript coders, for many reasons, but there ARE worse things. Kinda.

via Twitter Web Client

@NathanaelB So, you’re asking questions without having read @Warlach’s article and my comments where we already answer all this? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

@NathanaelB @Warlach Twitter’s RT function doesn’t allow you to add comments at all. Neither does @ev’s blog. http://bit.ly/2lLqcf

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NathanaelB

Problem: MP3 & AIFF files on CD-ROM with bad blocks. Need: Read files until they hit problem, salvage audio. OS X answer is…?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jasonlangenauer: Does anything ruin the day as thoroughly as cross-browser Javascript debugging? [Cancer? Being shot in the head?]

via Twitter Web Client

Twitter’s new RT? After 5 mins still agree with @Warlach’s and my points. Will not use. http://bit.ly/3LJUaL

@I_enigma Alas, as with any disaster, the stories of problems emerge slowly…

via Twitter Web Client

@willhughes Yes. Yes, I was indeed asking for that. And it’s interesting (uhoh!) to see who took the bait.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to willhughes

Dear @Warlach @Cocodmonkey @lelak, that was all WAY too obvious and you should be ashamed of yourselves.

via Twitter Web Client

There’s no need to tag tweets “interesting”. If it’s not interesting, don’t fucking well tweet it!

@NereadersDigest No, no shandies at all for me last night. “Just” insomnia and felines.

@SnarkyPlatypus @pressdarling Govt involvement in marriage was for clarification of inheritance, pensions and tax. http://bit.ly/1FeJn9

@seancarmody Actually, more a middle-class office worker imperialism.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

@seancarmody I consider the whole concept to be American cultural imperialism and I will not use it.

@leehopkins Yes, I’m Google result #1 for “used knickers” in Australia today. #4 for “nude adolescents”, it seems.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leehopkins

@jg_rat Yes, you did just get Sherbet-rolled. I thought we needed a change from Mr Reynolds.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jg_rat

@leehopkins My top search terms now: “steve irwin jokes”, me, “heath ledger jokes”, “nude adolescents”, “fiona patten”, “used knickers”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leehopkins

OK, I’m a bit overwhelmed by how big the response was to an off-hand comment about “tuna fish”. Someone needs to pay me for this.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @gga: The only explanation is that all western culture is morally bankrupt and will shortly collapse into its hollow inside.[Yes.]

via Twitter Web Client

No, everyone, this is not a “tuna”. http://bit.ly/1GBkdj Nor it this. http://bit.ly/ucAsP

via Twitter Web Client

I will now have a “tuna prickly pear sandwich”.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh. Tuna = various prickly pears, especially erect, treelike species Opuntia tuna and others, native to Mexico, bearing sweet, edible fruit

via Twitter Web Client

Also, why do Americans always say “tuna fish” as opposed to just “tuna”?

via Twitter Web Client

I never knew tuna sandwiches were so versatile. http://bit.ly/2XstgV

@Mrgareth Thank you. But I’ll live. I was working from the text at http://bit.ly/4V44K so most of what I said is on record.

@nicolejensen @ChrissieM Indeed, please see http://bit.ly/1M1NPV and http://bit.ly/G7yxp re “no advertising material”.
