@iDarryl Ah! I read “buggery of cause” as “perversion of purpose”. If you’d spelled it “of course”, I still wouldn’t have gotten it. Tired.

Me in Crikey, but paywall’d: “Budget IT: More NBN vagueness, border control and cyber-safety re-allocation” http://bit.ly/d12WdM

RT @jasonlangenauer: Oh, go drink some Victory Gin. Some of us proles got it. [Now that’s the best suggestion I’ve heard all day! Thanks.]

via TweetDeck

@firstdogonmoon Your “1984” reference is wasted on these proles.

@iDarryl Not sure of the point you’re making? Passports are done by DFAT. http://bit.ly/3KQKd

via TweetDeck in reply to iDarryl

@Nickhodge I think the AIM of DFAT’s new $100M passport system is to stop Mossad stealing them, yes. But will it? Mossad are happy pumpkins.

@jonoabroad Senator Barnett is truly connected with the Australian people and we should not mock him.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Apparently the Australian people are not happy pumpkins. Thank you, Senator Barnett.

@benmoretti “Kthxbai” is “OK, thanks, bye”, but with added… sarcasm? I daresay searches will turn up good explanations.

via TweetDeck

Ah thank you, @paris_david That was Senator Michaelia Cash, Lib, WA. Improving the tolerance of all Australians.

via TweetDeck

Dear Senate, you’ve 78 bills to deal with in 10 days. Please focus on legislation, not repetitive set-piece positioning statements kthxbai.

via TweetDeck

Oh. She’s gone.

via TweetDeck

Who the fuck is this annoyingly nasal redneck currently shouting in the Senate?

@jeamland RSS/iTunes links for “Twisted Wire” podcast are on the individual episode pages, like http://bit.ly/9xD8EW

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

Crikey story filed! And now, brace myself for a 1100 interview for tomorrow’s “Twisted Wire” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Kirk Koenigsbauer on stage. He is American and speaks fast. Speaking fast is important.

via TweetDeck

@benmoretti “Does it have a ribbon?” It’s a little early for that kind of programmatic specificity. More abstract nouns to go.

via TweetDeck

Office 2010 is a “quantum leap” forward. Does she know a quantum is the tiniest, tiniest step? Clearly not.

via TweetDeck

I believe it is also now compulsory for product launches to have Three Abstract Nouns. “Cloud” is concrete tho, but only just.

via TweetDeck

Tracey Fellows, Microsoft MD Australia. We have three things to take away today. Innovation. The Cloud. Productivity.

via TweetDeck

Oscar Trimboli is on stage. He says this is a very exciting day for them. Of course it is. Excitement is mandatory.

via TweetDeck

The video includes some writing in a foreign language, and brown faces, to demonstrate that Microsoft is Global and Cares.

via TweetDeck

Next, there is a video with louder, more up-tempo music, with a drum pattern and expensive CGI.

via TweetDeck

This is a product launch, therefore can haz funky but not-too-challenging music.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Out to th front of the house; cab Enmore to Dawes Point; 0915 wherever this launch is.

via TweetDeck

@gabfran This may help, m’dear. http://bit.ly/a7UnAH Ping @SnarkyPlatypus [RT me from last night. I was ignored. I sulk.]

via TweetDeck in reply to ShoesandYoga

We should develop some sort of Kool-Aid Quotient (KAQ) for product launches. Apple’s are always at 11.

via TweetDeck

Microsoft Office 2010 & SharePoint 2010 business launch in Sydney starts 0930. Follow it via has10au

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Microsoft a de nombreux mamelons. Et pas seulement Microsoft. Ainsi, de nombreux mamelons! J’ai vu aujourd’hui 18 ans déjà!

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Thu plan: 0930 MIcrosoft Office 2010 launch, Dawes Point; lunch (where?); 1500 SEKRIT corporate meeting; gym & dinner w@SnarkyPlatypusypus.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai l’intention de passer la plupart de la journée à sucer les mamelons de grandes sociétés. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@rod_benson Thank you. I think the yabby is a noble beast, and much misunderstood.

via TweetDeck in reply to rod_benson

Last night’s tweet re current historically-low US tax http://bit.ly/9Hsfp1 is half-right http://bit.ly/ayGlIP

via TweetDeck

@Pattycam Morning. Isn’t “tweeps” an interesting label, as if the most relevant thing is whether someone uses Twitter . A curious tribalism.

via TweetDeck in reply to Pattycam

Emerges. ฉันชื่อกุ้งมังกร. HT @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

Is this the best newspaper correction so far this year? http://bit.ly/b7FkKT

via TweetDeck

US tax bills in 2009 at “lowest level since 1950”, apparently http://bit.ly/aS7sio

via TweetDeck

Also, I am confusing the travel advice with other comments and something about a masturbating squid. Or a chicken.

via TweetDeck

This is intriguing. Each time I mention this trip I get heaps of travel advice. Thank you all. Still processing…

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer No Wi-Fi yet on Qantas A380s? WHAT WILL I DO WITHOUT THE INTERNET FOR 13.5 HOURS? Well, drink, I suppose.

via TweetDeck

Wondering how to get Qantas to upgrade me to Business Class. Ethically, of course. Does Qantas watch Twitter? Can I tweet from an A380-800?

via TweetDeck

@thetowncrier You should spend your entire presentation talking about Twitter. That’s what everyone else does these days.

via TweetDeck in reply to thetowncrier

@Reemski @jasonlangenauer Most organisations don’t get their programmers to look at the existing knowledge on naming practices. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck in reply to Reemski

@renailemay How is compiling your PUBLIC tweets an invasion of privacy? http://bit.ly/97PofO Also, where’s mine, @KarinaSilva ?

via TweetDeck in reply to renailemay

If anyone has SECURITY-related questions for Microsoft for my visit to Seattle, let me know. http://bit.ly/cI9pSv

via TweetDeck

@Reemski @jasonlangenauer Yes, a single name on a passport is a non-problem. The System is set up for this. Never been queried even.

via TweetDeck

Oh, it’s the Department of Homeland Security. This explains much.

via TweetDeck

Qantas Empire Airways was the name from 1934 to 1967. Nice to see the US government keeping it alive, keeping it real.

via TweetDeck

It appears that a computer, somewhere, has authorised me to travel to the United States. The fools, the fools…!

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile Yes, one-name is solved with “FNU” as given name. I consider my name to be a given name tho, not a family name. Oh well.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

Good God! The US electronic travel approval system lists Qantas Empire Airways as an airline. Yes, I shall fly with them!

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd and back again, collecting clean clothes and possibly something from the shops. But I’m not telling you what.

via TweetDeck

@BaneAu Yes, clients appreciate having a known human coordinating everything. A boutique approach, I guess.

via TweetDeck in reply to BaneAu

@BaneAu I host my clients directly on my own leased servers. Cuts one support step and a lot of hassle, adds much flexibility.

via TweetDeck in reply to BaneAu

Enjoying the thrill of migrating hosting for two client domains from one provider to another, when the first is slow and unresponsive.
