Hmmm… Is there a handy hardware engineer who can explain how Intel’s new 32nm processors will change their world?

@kcarruthers Erm, no, I don’t think Facebook gimmicks are worthy of coverage in an Australian IT industry program. Or anywhere else.

@dananimal If I ran Windows then I might choose Zenu Linksleuth. But POSIX would be good ‘cos then I could set and forget.

@grantshow Interview you? And the IT industry news story is…?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to grantshow

Erk, I still haven’t organised a feature interview for “Patch Monday” either. Summer slow news weeks FTL.

@The_Rooster Hmmm? I rotate avatars through all sorts of combinations. I wouldn’t read anything deep into it.

10 years ago, finding a Perl script to locate orphan web files would’ve been easy. Now, no, I can only find expensive GUI tools for Windows.

@peterhau I get what you’re saying, but still Avatar-related stuff isn’t really within what ZDNet covers. http://bit.ly/3RTWOU

via Twitter Web Client in reply to peterhau

@peterhau sing COTS hardware for film-making isn’t new, though. Only “news” ‘cos of the latest example, incremental not breakthrough IMO.

@iDarryl Senator Lundy would be good to talk to, yes, but I did one on Government 2.0 not long ago. http://bit.ly/7CX2SG

@leslie_nassar “Patch Monday” is a podcast about the IT industry, particularly Australia. Which “bitches” should I talk to? ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Still not sure what the hell I’ll talk about, and with whom, on the next “Patch Monday” podcast. Suggestions welcome. http://bit.ly/5II0B9

@nomadiquemc I’m with you, Sir. Running a company costs money, yet people want to run a NATION on the cheap? I don’t want cheap!

@coliwilso Err no I, don’t watch broadcast TV actually. Haven’t for a couple years, except by accident at the gym or the pub.

@JonoH We’re not talking about conference outcomes, we’re talking about travel costs. Don’t muddy the two lest I think less of you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH @smperris Indeed, after a 24 hour flight and straight into meetings, business class is just basic I think. These ain’t holidays.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Yes, and John Howard was a xenophobe who failed to connect Australia with the rest of the world. Not a good case study IMO.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

So,these 3D TVs. Tell me again how many hours of 3D content are broadcast each week? Sorry, I still have fingers left on that hand.

via Twitter Web Client

@JonoH Given that covers security, staff, media etc, $1.5M to send a head of govt to Copenhagen seems rather cheap to me.

@Nickhodge Oh I knew that the iconic Iwo Jima image had been staged, it’s just good to see the real one for a change.
