@lewellyn Look, I never said that I might not still want to learn things on other days, just not last night.

I have probably learned enough now. [exit]

OK, so tonight I’m learning such an awful lot of new things about snow and breast implants… It’s a Sign!

@ivovic So you’re telling me that the world isn’t like in the Christmas movies? THEY LIE AT CHRISTMAS TIME?11?1!!!??

@courtney_gibson Yes, the silicone-implant-discus-throw is an AWESOME event! I am… inspired. Thank you.

@SnarkyPlatypus Now I just need to think which sport I should enter for the London 2012 Olympics.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus So, that’s TWO Orders of Australia for me then, counting the one for my services to the wine industry. Bonus!

I, too, will forgo my breast implants for the Nation. It’s the least I can do.

@jdub Perhaps we need to start spreading the hashtag to flag the idiocy of his anti-piracy proposals.

@BiteTheDust Does this Digital television switchover timetable help? http://bit.ly/4zDAAv Looks ages away in your patch.

Oh cute @jpoh but I don’t think that’s one of my fans. Yet. http://yfrog.com/3lvr5zj

@weezmgk Yes, the other day that I actually paid for software which was still officially beta. “Known bad”, yet I paid. Weird industry.

@NewtonMark Thank you. As I said in the podcast, I find myself drifting to security issues. Must discuss with @renailemay I suspect.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@bengrubb That “calculation” stuff sure sounds like a lot of hard work. Do you think someone has a machine to help with that?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb I ask ‘cos my brain isn’t comprehending the chart http://bit.ly/5IChpm the story at http://bit.ly/8mLVTK links to.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb So Telstra, with most ISP customers, also has most Conficker-infected. Or has that been adjusted to a % of users?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

Thanks @k_a_beck. If there’s any topics you reckon we should cover in “Patch Monday” do let us know!

via Twitter Web Client

@courtney_gibson Facebook’s “close account” is one of the worst: They keep your data anyway, “just in case you change your mind”. Pricks.

No, @ThePlasticAge … PayPal is a slow and inefficient piece of shit run by an overly-secretive and arrogant organisation.

via Twitter Web Client

How on Earth does PayPal get its website to run so godawful fucking slowly ALL THE FUCKING TIME?

via Twitter Web Client

Well @renailemay @Tempestrix I get enough “red tape” problems with my name as it is. I won’t tempt fate. Yet.

@SnarkyPlatypus Emailed by a job agency you haven’t used in 4 years? Implied consent under Spam Act 2003 has long since expired! Report ‘em!

@renailemay Maybe I should change my name again to include the “@” … ;)

@renailemay Hah! I was going to say something about NBN Co and the McKinsey mob but then realised it’s outside my patch. Curious, tho, eh?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@renailemay I see that the drudgery of a Monday at work has yet to kill your sense of wit today. We must fix this. ;)

@andrewdotnich I use Saasu for accounting. ‘Tis in the cloud, so my OS is irrelevant. VERY happy with it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewdotnich

And… “Patch Monday” is completed, uploaded and ready for His Worship. Ping @renailemay and time for a coffee.

via Twitter Web Client

Whew! “Patch Monday” edit done. Now, to compress, upload, and write some words for the website.

via Twitter Web Client

Busily recording and editing “Patch Monday”. I wonder whether my cranky mood will show through?

@martinwalsh True, I know nothing about tech. Nothing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to martinwalsh

Sorry @GeordieGuy you’re right, “GodMode” was specific to that tutorial. Headline and photo caption implies it’s Windows 7’s name for it.

via Twitter Web Client

Windows 7 has a “GodMode”? http://bit.ly/6t5Zv8 Is Microsoft AIMING to offend the devout? HT @renailemay

via Twitter Web Client

@bengrubb The entire world is confusing. auDA is but a small irritation. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@GeordieGuy No, that’s not an “Oxford comma” actually. The commas set off the “indeed” for emphasis. Forget that construct’s precise name.
