@AmandaDean Dunno if it was released early, but I don’t use Windows every day so it’s not something I’d use at length yet.

@techAU I’ve learned that at IT launches “revolutionary” doesn’t mean, y’know, revolutionary. It’s more a punctuation mark.

via TweetDeck in reply to techAU

@AmandaDean I won’t have a real opinion until I’ve actually used it for a period. A quick look/demo is misleading.

via TweetDeck in reply to AmandaDean

Again, I can’t help but think all this complexity races ahead of small business understanding. Where are clear, simple tools?

The default charts in Excel 2010 are still fuckin’ ugly. And as always, just so much crap on-screen at once.

via TweetDeck

Demos are all aimed at larger business and power users. This stuff would completely baffle a SOHO operator.

Language patterms in these over-rehearsed customer case studiies are just like women’s morning TV cosmetic promotions.

Yes @benmoretti there is a ribbon, now in all applications including SharePoint.

Due to a fatality at Newtown, various trains are running indefinitely late. Including mine. Now making it up as I go.

@expectproblems Client moving multiple domains to new hosting, isn’t able to handle instructions for moving email. Needs other hand-holding.

@virtualpete This 3-train hop gives the smallest elapsed travel time. Or so says 131500.com.au … we shall see.

via Cloudhopper

@jplonie Oh bah! It’s a 2km pleasant stroll, less than half an hour, past a golf course and other delights.

Mobile: Enmore Rd; Newtown station; change at Strathfield; change at Epping; Beecroft station; walk to West Pennant Hills by 1100. Lovely.

Australia Council’s “Geeks in Residence” were announced a week ago. http://bit.ly/dbzBBt Nobody told me. Ahem.

@jplonie But you’re right, federated ID is an important issue, especially as more services move to the cloud.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@jplonie Federated ID is being used seriously in Europe for government / banking / health http://bit.ly/bRkY1d but perhaps not Microsoft’s.

Security questions can be at all levels @franksting ‘cos I’m in Redmond for 3 days and meeting people in every area.

via TweetDeck

I’m still looking for SECURITY-related questions to ask Microsoft when I’m in Redmond later this month. http://bit.ly/cI9pSv

Fri plan: 1100 client site West Pennant Hills (exactly) restructuring email; end-of-week wrap; “The 9pm Edict” podcast (after a long gap).

Emerges. Well, actually I emerged earlier, but I’ve been doing SEKRIT things while you weren’t watching.

via TweetDeck

Mobile again, in search of food. Attention limited.

via TweetDeck

On the train, nearly home. Long day.

via Cloudhopper

@Knorts I shan’t reveal the exact location. I’ll just say that I was in the Sydney CBD and listening.

@NineSortJam I agree. Libraries have gone downhill since the let the lower classes in.

Sadly, they are dispersing. And I must go for my errand, and then home.

“Going to Melbourne for business?” “No, for gangbanging, mate. You know what sort of girl she is.” “Your wife?” “No, she’s a recruiter.”

via TweetDeck

Oh shit! I’ve just spilled red wi… Um, ink. Red Ink. From books on… um … accounting. Onto my shirt. In the library. Bother.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. One of them, yes, in a suit, but with tie undone, has started singing. http://bit.ly/bDkVTA or http://bit.ly/4My8t

Wow, you’re ALL picking Underbelly refs, @AndrewColley @Brendan_McNally @ragnarok1971. Just, wow.

via TweetDeck

I’m not quite getting the gist of the conversation now, but it’s something about “unnecessary breast examinations”.

via TweetDeck

@chenglau There’s a lovely sequence in one episode of “Beautiful People” series 2 about saying boo to a goose. I shan’t spoil it.

via TweetDeck in reply to chenglau

“And they were like, ‘Mate, we’re in the middle of the street and gettin’ wooded up already! WTF are we going to do now?’”

via TweetDeck

“Pills? Eccies?” “Nah mate, Viagra. Yeah, they thought it was dinner with hookers! I had to explain, ‘Mate, nah, they’re not hookers!’”

via TweetDeck

“Yeah, I brought a couple of guys down from the Hills for dinner, and they’d popped a couple of pills before they left.”

via TweetDeck

They’re now discussing how many more beers they can have before one of them goes for dinner with his girlfriend, for her birthday.

via TweetDeck

“She’s so fuckin’ quiet at work, won’t say boo to a goose. But mate, after a few drinks? She’s just gagging for it!”

via TweetDeck

“Make, I dunno what was going on, but as soon as we got into the back seat of the cab she was straddling me! She was so up for it!”

via TweetDeck

At the next table, a big loud bloke in a striped business shirt holds forth to a group of five blokey colleagues…

I can confirm that this … library has an extensive, um, reading list. @jeamland @PointZeroOne

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk Indeed. Great to meet you and I shall visit you and @renailemay at the Delimiter office in due course. I shall bring lemons.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

Oh. There is Wi-Fi in this pu… this, um, this… this library. Yes, that’s it. Library. Where I am working. While I am lurking.

via TweetDeck

OH: Man 1: “So what’s this new client like?” Man 2: “Total cunts.”

via TweetDeck

I can also confirm that @nanopunk exists.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems I am lurking like a ninja who is too old, too fat, in pain, had little sleep but is still a ninja. With a new umbrella.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Lurking. Just lurking.

Your internets are very slow at Circular Quay, despite the quiet day,

via Cloudhopper

@expectproblems Let me just dimensionalise the importance of this engaging user experience…

via Cloudhopper

Loose, heading around The Rncks to Circular Quay. And what a lovely day for it.

via Cloudhopper

I’ve gatecrashed some Skype launch across the road. The buzzwords are slightly different.

via Twitter Web Client

OH: “Let me dimensionalise why that’s important.” Jesus wept.
