Reviewing my photos from yesterday’s walk, I’m still baffled by “Euro Baby Cube” http://flic.kr/p/8o8nVc

How not to use satellite navigation http://bit.ly/9oosdT Note that they blame the satnav, not the driver ignoring road signs.

@Nickhodge Some of our tweets are working in parallel this morning. It bodes well.

@GreenJ For legal reasons, I shall assume you mean the story pitch I sent you, and not the hiring out @trib’s teenager girls as prostitutes.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est le lundi, mais pas comme vous le savez. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@trib If you have two teenage girls to loan me for a week, I’m sure the enterprise can be profitable. Erm, maybe that should be a DM…

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

@trib Hmmm… I’d say “bloody nightmare” is more on the scale of masked men kicking in your door and shooting you in the stomach.

“Antony Green’s head in a jar sold separately”? http://bit.ly/cdV00h Where, @crikey_news, where?

via TweetDeck

@trib Exactly that. Support costs climb if people phone to have info repeated at them. But you can check status http://bit.ly/d1cZHm

@trib I wouldn’t give an interim estimate. Impatient people start whinging as soon as the day appears, complaining that it’s late when not.

@trib I’m not @Internode, but it’s that E and the E can change depending on workload in the exchange. See http://bit.ly/akcCVz

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

@trib There is an “E” in “ETA”. If a staffer scheduled to move 50 pairs is sick, or if something else comes up, routine work gets dropped.

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

@trib Telstra will have given your retail provider an ETA when the order went thru, and the retailer can ask for an update.

@trib If you’re talking a DSL connection, quoted times are anywhere from 4 to 10 working days. Re-patching is done in batches.

This’d be easier, or at least more pleasurable, if I had a broom handle.

@SnarkyPlatypus @damana OK, so Drew Barrymore and tentacles in the same tweet is kind of a win right there.

RT @damana: “Oh, I love hugging. I wish I was an octopus, so I could hug 10 people at a time!” — Drew Barrymore [So, she can’t count…]

Which arsehat decided that when you’re scrolling down a web page, it’d be “cool” to wait for each photo to fade in before you could see it?

Some people just want to drain all the mystery out of the world.

@SnarkyPlatypus I think the problem with the CEC’s nuclear maglev monorail plans is CAN HAS MOAR MONORAILS! http://bit.ly/d2MdYw

@SnarkyPlatypus Not only is the marinara schnitzel wrong, I also like the ashtray next to food and the crotch-cam angle http://bit.ly/bhu4xN

Oh yes @willozap the CEC wants nuclear powered maglev monorails across the desert! http://bit.ly/d2MdYw

@mpesce It was about Ian Thorpe. Which category does that fit into?

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Excuse me! I’ll have you know I personally fixed Wikipedia myself this very morning!

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Wikipedia is Utopia? But it’s populated entirely by minor characters from Battlestar Galactica and gay porn producers. Oh. Wait.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce “Every educator and every student in Australia a contributor of value”? Sorry, in which utopia is this? Sturgeon’s Law, Sir!

@SnarkyPlatypus Je crois que j’ai été transformée par nos visites dans les belles régions du monde. Je suis en paix avec Panania.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli d’un certain sentiment de satisfaction béate, et quelques douleurs mineures. Je ris à les Googles.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I’m still not sure what I’ll be doing with this week’s “Patch Monday” podcast. I really do need to solve that little problem today.

@sylmobile So “@TurnbullMalcolm atop a power poll” is a political candidate? Does he have special pole-icies? Nyuk! Nyuk!

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

@expectproblems I’m guessing that Euro Baby Cube is a symptom of machine translation in some way but, erm, yes.
