Now I just need to hope that said phone recovers from sitting in a puddle last night. Silica gel FTW (I hope).

Replacement Nokia battery, genuine, at a good price just delivered from Quikshop. Nice work. http://bit.ly/7McQHU

@SnarkyPlatypus Well maybe @JoeHockey isn’t a puppet, but only ‘cos you’d need ropes rather than strings.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Learning many things.

via Twitter Web Client

@JoeHockey So, you think an initiative announced by your own party leader is “terrific”? Puppet much? You can do better than that.

RT @franksting: How come no one told me setanta has the African nations cup? [Because we hate you, pretty much.]

via Twitter Web Client

@smperris Yes, “pre-emptive” is a perfectly good term. And appropriate in this case.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

And now every crime involving an “Indian” gets a headline too. http://bit.ly/6DV0eV I expect better of my national broadcaster, actually.

The question has to be asked of @abcnews: “Why are you giving oxygen to old farts who weren’t there?” http://bit.ly/80r0cQ

Oh no, this dead kid was a Shore student? We’re never going to hear the end of this. http://bit.ly/80r0cQ

I see the instant experts are pre-judging the coronial inquest into Nick Delaney death. Cunts. http://bit.ly/80r0cQ

@WoollyMittens “Chook” is English and Australian working class slang. VERY widespread.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WoollyMittens

@josh909 I must reveal this is at Kelly’s On King.

@declanmurphy My Super Power seems to be winning the meat tray at random new pubs, not my regulars. Still, I have a chook.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to declanmurphy

@thewinchesterau It is not a $250 chook, no. But it IS the same HUGE chicken that we won the other week.

AJPEG, making image compression not efficient, but interesting. Beautiful work. http://bit.ly/8NB77g Ping @ApostrophePong

@grum The Google / Encyclopedia Dramatica story re Aboriginal racial abuse? Try this. http://bit.ly/7d3UI3

All the meat raffle tickets have been distributed. We merely await the manager to draw the prizes. My Special Power will RULE!

via Twitter Web Client

I am feeling confident about my chances of winning the meat raffle tonight. Punter numbers are low.

Lovely to see @JohnBirmingham troll China re Google and get counter-trolled in return. http://bit.ly/4yUgiy

Well @theggerus @viveka @notrez I’m on a mission this year to drastically reduce the complexity of crap that I have to deal with.

via Twitter Web Client

@theggerus The Nokia 8210 and 8250 are good phones, yes. I think some people use phone feature lists as penis substitutes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to theggerus

@notrez That said, that purchase decision was made over a year ago. I might not make the same choice now.

via Twitter Web Client

@notrez My “why I don’t have an iPhone” answer: No replaceable battery. Shit camera. I usually have my MacBook Pro with me anyway.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to notrez

It’s also rather amusing to see whose names and numbers are still in the phone’s memory. ;)

Using my old Nokia 6610 (not 6610i) while my N96 dries out. I’d forgotten how compact, light and easy to use they are. http://bit.ly/6Ii3US

via Twitter Web Client

I’m not sure that the world needs it, @theggerus, but it exists. So there you go. http://bit.ly/A7WML Thank you.

RT @Colvinius: Heh. Conan O’Brien puts his talk show up for sale on Craigslist. http://bit.ly/4q1GJb [And wittily written too.]

via Twitter Web Client

@lewellyn I’m surprised that anyone outside SE Asia is deciding to pick up hi5. Weird.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to lewellyn

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: So, I am apparently having Long Island Ice Teas this afternoon. [Oh! That gives me an idea!]

via Twitter Web Client

NSW Police warn parents and teens about mobile internet use. Scare story, but good advice for parents. http://bit.ly/624Sma

via Twitter Web Client

Gawd someone just sent me a hi5 friend request. And they’re not even Thai.

Mission(s) Accomplished! I feel like George W Bush! Unlike him, I shall quench my thirst and victory with a small lager.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; Camperdown; random quiet writing spot. Attention severely limited for the next 2 hours.

via Twitter Web Client

Thanks for all the backpack advice, btw. I’ll summarise later, but going mobile now with a non-smartphone.

via Twitter Web Client

While I’m asking, what have been people’s experiences with North Face brand backpacks?

Me in Crikey: “Bushwalking: cross-check everything, even official advice” http://bit.ly/6vJd8V Paywall’d, but 21-day free trial.

via Twitter Web Client

@a_makohon Yes, my point is kinda that the “veracity” / “voracity” thing is a bit o’ Crikey upfuckage. Fridays, eh? Who needs ‘em?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to a_makohon

@anthonybaxter Yes, Crumpler have good return / replacement policies and they’re well made. But not cheap. There’s a “cool surcharge”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to anthonybaxter

@dekrazee1 Do you walk with your Targus bag in the actual sun very much? I think it’s a UV / fabric durability issue.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dekrazee1

I’m not particularly after Crumpler, but I know they last. The Targus I got 2 years ago disintegrated. UV destroyed fabric?

via Twitter Web Client

Thank you @danpatmore, Rushfaster has a good laptop bag search! http://bit.ly/3RsPg7 And 20% for the next 8 hours.

via Twitter Web Client

I don’t think I could ever get “titty-fucked” and “voracity” into the same story. http://bit.ly/8j4OTf HT @crikey_news

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news Double negatives in the lead par really are a curse, aren’t they? I love “voracity” tho. ;) http://bit.ly/8j4OTf

@eddit0r Oh. There’s only search in the Flash site. Or, as I prefer to call it, the “make everything take much longer” site. Annoy-making.

“Search Engine Video #1: Does the Internet Make You Dumber?” 3 mins. http://bit.ly/5GWPr1

Dear Crumpler, your website shits me. I have to drill ALL the way down to see what size laptop each holds. Fail. http://bit.ly/5omHE1

@abcmarkscott Your tweet is missing the first “F”, Sir. Or possible the second one. http://bit.ly/5kIhI0

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mscott

@smperris I know of @Ihnatko’s research on drying out wet phones http://bit.ly/4jf2ho and have used silica gel before. I have a tub handy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, try another angle. “Futuristic Rabbi” results in a very different set of pictures.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Hmmm… Google Images search for “futuristic rabbit” and results #4 onwards are dildos. Something is wrong here.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, as I told you, the future When Rabbits Rule the Earth! Problem solved! http://bit.ly/4C7jE7

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus The important question for you to face is whether you represent the past or the future. For this party, I mean.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@nigelwadsworth A diagram of who bundles their toolbars where would, yes, be an interesting exercise. Onto it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nigelwadsworth

Yes @media_2010 @jasonlangenauer I think you’re right about the expensive not-Snuggie. http://bit.ly/4FqDYS I hope she wears it on 19 Feb.

via Twitter Web Client

No, Guardian, MV Steve Irwin isn’t “steaming” anywhere. http://bit.ly/4ygY3E It’s diesel. “MV”? http://bit.ly/5UtwQp

Ah @franksting that’d be like the Oxford police using their riot shields as sleds. http://bit.ly/79kCXb

Speaking of the media, remember The Hollowmen’s ABC funding discussions? http://bit.ly/2BSTn

@media_2010 Woman In Green’s name, job isn’t important. IS SHE WEARING A SNUGGIE? This is MEDIA here! http://bit.ly/4zuW6E

Oh botheration, Apollo. Is that a new claw wound on your rump? Looks like you’ll be going walkies later today.

Some people are skating on very thin ice this morning…

via Twitter Web Client

This is the music for the day. http://bit.ly/15yBtg Blame @feebsquared for this.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, there’s a place near Paddy’s Markets when you can get really good cheese.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe, instead of the gym, we could go to Paddy’s Markets and find you a suitably creative costume. Also, cheese.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Is this woman in green from the Media 2010 conference website wearing a Snuggie? http://bit.ly/4FqDYS

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Time travel? Well, wear rabbit ears then! You are visiting from When Rabbits Ruled the Earth!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Sorry, what is the theme again? I mean, if it’s a generic theme and you’re suitably creative with your interpretations…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Si vous vous sentez paresseux, peut-être acheter un diadème ou des oreilles de lapin dans un magasin commode?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis à explorer les merveilles de l’univers, en lycra d’argent et un casque transparent grand. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@nigelwadsworth In the same way that the Google Toolbar is often added to an Adobe Flash download, or Microsoft suggests defaulting to Bing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nigelwadsworth

@nigelwadsworth There’s a Yahoo Toolbar which they pay to have companies install as an optional extra with other software, or on new PCs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nigelwadsworth

Simple-minded extrapolation says Bing beats Yahoo Search by year’s end. http://bit.ly/5BtRJ7

@ApostrophePong This is the backpack I bought. http://bit.ly/7CMIbx If anyone plans shopping, please let me refer you for points.

@R_Chirgwin My gripe is not with guys like yourself who know the bushwalks, but with those who’ve decided the circumstances of a death.

@NereadersDigest I have moved past the bacon chicken narwhal. That was so 6pm. And so… disgusting. http://bit.ly/A7WML

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NereadersDigest

@grum You’d better hope that your blind random root also has no sense of smell.

This calls for the narwhal.
