@renailemay Are you saying that your new business is freelance irony coach?

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! Whew! Ping @engochick and @renailemay

via Twitter Web Client

Transcoding a podcast to MP3 while the cats make far too much noise in the background. Distracting? Yes!

via Twitter Web Client

@engochick Ahem. Yes. Patch Monday. I have the key interview edited. Just have to script and record the news, then final edit and mix.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to engochick

I’ll absorb and respond to comments about schools funding later. I’m way behind my editing this afternoon.

via Twitter Web Client

@engochick O hai! @renailemay says you’ll have to cope with me now. A “Patch Monday” podcast coming… erm… soon. Ish.

Me in Crikey: “China isn’t our biggest hacker threat” http://bit.ly/5oJzyh

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Oh, erm, thanks! I’m busily podcast editing and haven’t noticed the last couple of hours. I should pimp it I guess. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@adamnelson It’s a searing exposé of the pool cleaning industry’s dark underbelly. Where DOES that chlorine come from?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to adamnelson

Crikey story filed! Without one company’s input. Corporate paranoia FTL.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Ideally I would have filed by now. As we approach noon @sophblack’s stress levels increase.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@Nickhodge Well their middle class middle management fear may mean they don’t get quoted at all. I’m right on Crikey deadline.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Waiting for sources to have their quotes approved. Why are corporations so goddam paranoid about their expert staff speaking?

RT @vealmince: Oh dear. Clare Werbeloff to co-star? [Yes, @vealmince. And the alleyway sex scene is something to behold!]

via Twitter Web Client

@Cacotopos Surely you jest? Corey Worthington is Australia’s finest new actor!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cacotopos

Oh dear. Corey Worthington wins film role in “Life in the Fastlane”. http://bit.ly/6M3COR Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

Tue plan (belated): A strange mix of errands across a 2km radius and complex regexp work on a client website, exact timing TBA.

@chasrmartin You know, http://bit.ly/5CEtGR shows how you could have made the point without it being a personal attack.

Both French http://bit.ly/7mW5U3 and German http://bit.ly/7XVdiT computer security agencies have advised against using Internet Explorer.

via Twitter Web Client

@chasrmartin No. I just said my first reaction was “Erk, tasteless.” Then you began haranguing me for not having solved all the problems. :/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

Note to self: “Do not have emotions. If you accidentally have an emotion, do not express it.”

via Twitter Web Client

@chasrmartin Yes, I’m TERRIBLY sorry for actually having an emotional reaction and expressing it. What WAS I thinking?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin Yes, as I say, it is a complex moral and social question. More complex indeed than an immediate emotional reaction.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin But, as I say, I found distasteful that people could still indulge in luxury near a disaster zone. That is my reaction.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin Or if not that, then perhaps a vessel with 1000 beds and a few doctors could come in handy. [shrugs] As I say, there’s options.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin I honestly think lying on beach so a few dollars of profit trickles through probably isn’t the most effective aid technique.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin Other options? Well, how about 2000 able-bodied people nearby doing something other that indulging in leisure pursuits?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@chasrmartin “Tasteful” an accurate (sarcastic) expression of emotional reaction. The logical one? Maybe there were other options.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

Ah, parochialism! “What does the Queen have against Queensland?” http://bit.ly/8p68LD

@theburgerman However I’d be prepared to open a hospital or lay a wreath at a memorial or review infantry or something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to theburgerman

@theburgerman Several hours of me at my desk, writing, and then maybe walking to the post office would be excellent footage. [nods]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to theburgerman

@chasrmartin I do like the way you’ve managed to reduce a complex moral and social question to an extreme either/or choice. Well done.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chasrmartin

@theburgerman Good morning. When @GemmaCoats finishes covering Prince William’s visit she can cover my life for a couple days. Great TV!

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est une belle journée, et je suis impatient d’être productif. Quelle est l’utilité de moi. Et vous?

RT @davekerridge: Best place to find updates on situation in Afghanistan? [Good question, Best answers?]

via Twitter Web Client

Ta @TimLovitt. For those looking for someone on the ground in Kabul, see @MyMarrakesh. It’s ouside my direct brief tho.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jamesmassola: So excited crust pizza has come to . So happy i could cry. Finally good pizza in the capital. [And that.]

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, don’t worry about Afghanistan, or about Google being hacked by China. The tennis is on. Shoosh.

via Twitter Web Client

Um @Cacotopos my sources didn’t come with links but, yes, http://bit.ly/7sJrEG is a good start.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh, in case anyone cares, a major Taliban attack on Kabul has just started. That’s in Afghanistan.

via Twitter Web Client

I’m gonna be lame and re-pimp my Crikey piece since it was lead today. “China isn’t our biggest hacker threat” http://bit.ly/5oJzyh

via Twitter Web Client

Gawd, pressing Facebook’s “like” button really has to be the lowest form of social interaction invented.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Cacotopos: Oh, you’re branching into PR and/or advertising then? [Touché. No, I don’t plan on becoming a complete cunt.]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @renailemay: Conroy has a new press secretary, name of Suzie Brady, former media advisor to NSW Transport Minister

via Twitter Web Client

So tempted to create a fake persona so I can comment on stuff online, especially my own bullshit articles.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh @jplonie don’t get me started on the “$300 of included value” bullshit of phone companies. I reckon that should be illegal.

via Twitter Web Client

Oh I see, Virgin Mobile, that 1800 number was a Telstra customer service number. That’s even more fucked.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Virgin Mobile, 1800 numbers aren’t “free” from my mobile, OK, but not even part of the cap? That’s pretty fucked!

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Minor local errands, then a quick knock-off drink while reading before dinner.

via Twitter Web Client

@ViciousPotato Mine? That makes at least two miracles then. I’m popping out to buy a lottery ticket.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ViciousPotato

@ViciousPotato Are you missing periods? You know what that might mean…
