@SnarkyPlatypus Déçu que j’ai mal dormi, malgré le médicament. L’amertume sera expliqué sous peu.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis plein d’amertume et de déception, et très peu de sommeil. Et vous?

Emerges. Very slowly. It’s not my fault.

Fading. Finally. [exit]

@gnoll110 [nods] Politics is a weird business.

via TweetDeck in reply to gnoll110

@gnoll110 Ive no idea what the ACTU thinks of Abbott’s plan. I’ve been a bit out of the loop this week alas.

Guardian: “Does a Mac need anti-virus protection?” has interesting comment thread http://bit.ly/chwCuU

via TweetDeck

@linzc As I say, “viruses” are not the only threat. There IS Mac malware. Less common, sure, but that’s still not “none”.

@sharonpakir As the article counts them out, umami is the 5th taste. Fat makes 6.

via TweetDeck in reply to sharonpakir

Plus @jenbishopsydney “viruses” are only one of many threat types. There’s a variety of cross-platform nasties.

RT @jenbishopsydney: I thought macs didn’t need antivirus? :-S [A common misapprehension, that. Mac malware less common, but it exists.]

Using Norton AntiVirus for Mac for the first time. Have encountered a bug. In chat with their live support.

Insomnia will lead me to tweet all sorts of shit until the medication kicks in. That’s “balance” too, after two days of exhaustion.

ABC Chair Maurice Newman’s climate science background: investment banking and “close personal friend” of John Howard.

via TweetDeck

In further news, for medical advice, we ask a kitchenhand, a hairdresser and an architect. For “balance”.

via TweetDeck

ABC Chair, not a scientist, pleased to hear more non-scientists on climate science. Tool. http://bit.ly/bv8Fz6

Oh no, @wolfcat, the “Feed me now” is far less subtle than than. It is a loud, sustained, complaining howwwwwwwlllllLLLLL!!

via TweetDeck

OH: “Purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr purr!”

@gnoll110 Is your question whether I have any comments on Abbott’s proposal? Or whether the ACTU does? Or whether Crikey does?

via TweetDeck in reply to gnoll110

Wow. The ACTU is running ads on Crikey (and elsewhere?) saying the Abbott will re-introduce WorkChoices under another name.

via TweetDeck

Indeed @adamnelson an epidemiologist once told me that unusual weather brings out the unusual bugs. Although he may have been lying.

Thank you @mrsnickhodge, each day has been an improvement. I’m hearing this gastro is widespread over Sydney, so to speak.

@andrewdotnich Look, just go and eat your goddam sheep, OK? :P

Dear Hewlett Packard, if you were Dell you’d notice me pointing to this comment about your fucked-up URLs. http://bit.ly/aEZOwZ

@andrewdotnich I’m fairly sure that “butterfly” is not a verb. Except in the Taoist sense that all nouns are, ultimately, verbs.

Decided. There shall NOT be an episode of “The 9pm Edict” tonight. My energy levels still haven’t returned sufficiently.

via TweetDeck

Ah. A delegation from the Feline Empire is expressing dissatisfaction with the catering arrangements, or more precisely the lack thereof.

via TweetDeck

Fungus is your Fabulous Friend, @sylmobile

via TweetDeck

Deciding if I have the energy to do an episode of “The 9pm Edict” tonight. I’m recovering, but still nowhere near 100%.

It’s OK not to know what “market cap” means, @jmacmullin. It’s good that some people know about things other than the share market.

Thanks @jeamland I’ve always preferred the actuality of ambient sound to the artificial silence of a studio.

Compliance paperwork is bad for the brain.

@overingtonc It sounds like you’re suggesting names from some cultures are “more Australian” than others. Are you from Cronulla?

via TweetDeck

@overingtonc By “Australian name”, do you mean an Anglo-Irish one? Or an Aboriginal name? Or one reflecting our breadth of culture?

via TweetDeck

@Tim_Beshara Increasingly I think Tony Abbott is incapable of generating a clear policy direction for the Coalition.

via TweetDeck

Poor choice of words @jonoabroad sorry. Entourage’s data structure is fragile. iCal’s just seems slow for very large calendars. YMMV.

Confused by clients who reply to an email asking a specific “A or B?” question with “Thank you”.

RT @Nickhodge: MEDIA SCEPTICISM ALERT: The science is still out on Haim’s death… Don’t fall for groupthink!

via TweetDeck

Can I bill this to anyone, or do I have to go and do some work now?

via TweetDeck

Oh hang on @rbbrown @Nickhodge it wasn’t quite the right joke. Damn. @rbbrown, you were MUCH more subtle!

via TweetDeck

@rbbrown The very first obligatory Corey Haim / Richard Wilkins joke was just tweeted by @Nickhodge. http://bit.ly/c9VKQx

via TweetDeck

Confused by cow and sheep noises coming from the kitchen.

via TweetDeck

Agreed @jmacmullin there IS certainly a groupthink phenomenon once journalists form a narrative pack, if I can coin a new term.

@Warlach I have been a mushroom for a few days now. But I have also been sick for a few days, and a little subdued.

Does anyone have the full text of ABC chair Maurice Newman’s speech from yesterday?

via TweetDeck

Thu plan (belated): Complete annoying compliance paperwork; write many difficult emails; get out of the house; order of play TBA.

via TweetDeck

@jmacmullin From the fragments, it’s admittedly hard to understand what Newman was really on about. He waffles generalities, not specifics.

via TweetDeck in reply to jmacmullin

If you’re going to question science, at least do so scientifically.
