Emerges. Kinda.

Meanwhile, “An Engineer’s Guide to Cats” http://youtu.be/mHXBL6bz… and “Advanced Cat Yodeling” http://youtu.be/cxLG2wtE…

By the end of it, that cat looks in such a shitty mood. And rightly so.

@SnarkyPlatypus The cats and I all need valium after that! Or something a LOT stronger.

That goes for 35 minutes?

@SnarkyPlatypus Change CLAUDIA to CHLAMYDIA in the fewest one-letter-change steps?

@Colvinius [nods] I am happy with PM’s work, but of course I am addicted. Different styles for differernt audiences, is all.

I’ve only discovered today that Security Expo 2010 is in Sydney next week. http://www.securityexpo….

via TweetDeck

@Colvinius It’s all just curious questions from me, not attacks. Lingering questions from when I was at the ABC myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius Chicken/egg. Not listening to PM because it doesn’t speak to them? Or ABC abandons non-cognoscente? Deep Q about ABC, I guess.

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius There’s movement on the story today. But how is it presented so the non-cognoscente understand? @NewtonMark @trib @safzoro

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius I’m not so sure. I’ve been talking to non-journo non-politico types today and they’ve no interest until the winner is known.

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

Yes, I’m participating in horse-race journalism. I’m also a hypocrite. Like everyone is, if they admitted it.

@oliyoung I believe Mr Katter has been almost-patiently explaining that Australia is not a 2-party system any more. I wish him well.

Sorry @chippa I didn’t tag the first tweet “Chief meter maid hits back at Microsoft” http://bit.ly/9uYxTI

via TweetDeck

Dear Microsoft, don’t lie about what happened. It’s the 21st Century. You will be found out. And you have been.

via TweetDeck

As I suspected, Microsoft’s “surprise” at Meter Maids’ attire was a fib. http://bit.ly/9uYxTI But Roberta Aitchison, it ain’t “glamour”.

@expectproblems Dolphins used to always ride HMAS Aware’s bow wave as it left Port Adelaide. And they did on the day I was aboard. Glorious.

Emerges from a world of HTML and CSS and the lining up of text over images. What’s been happening, Gentle Sheep?

RT @GreenJ: What did happen to the Xorangamites in the end? [The men were put to the sword, their women and children sold into slavery.]

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St; errands and lunch; afternoon workspot. Do you notice a certain pattern emerging? I think you do. Stop it.

via TweetDeck

Thanks @anepiphany for placehold.it but in fact @jonoabroad with dummyimage.com was the one I was thinking of, ta!

Dear Nice People, what is that website again that when fed example.com/200x200.jpg gives you an outline image that size?

Launching BBEdit, for it shall be my home for the next few hours.

@jonoabroad Hah! “I can’t believe BBEdit is still around” is like saying “I can’t believe Photoshop is still around”.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Hello again BBEdit.

@mikesmithqld Alas you may be right. Gillard / Abbott comparisons are now about who is the less-worse communicator.

Note to Billy Connolly: SHOUTING DOES NOT MAKE IT FUNNIER.

via TweetDeck

@thornae I know not of Mr Connolly’s routine about bagpipes and stoned Pakistanis, but then Mr Connolly annoys me.

If Mr Rabbit IS trying to trigger another election, my gut feeling is that voters will be unhappy and punish him.

via TweetDeck

Yes, Apollo, sitting on the printer and pressing random buttons will indeed cause it to make curious noises.
