@lukehopewell Sadly for the future of a buttweasel URL shortener, there is no .el 2-letter country code. http://arseh.at/tg

I would like to thank @JohnBirmingham for introducing me to the word “buttweasel” today.

@cheshireb There’s so much I want to ask in response to that tweet, including a question including the word “desperation”, but it won’t fit.

I refuse to believe that I am older than Gretel Killeen.

RT @NineSortJam: Who would introduce a Sandra Sully biography, I wonder? [Gretel Killeen, I presume.]

via TweetDeck

@NineSortJam I will be honest and say that I don’t find Kerry O’Brien to be as outstanding a broadcaster as some make out. YMMV, of course.

via TweetDeck in reply to m_jns

@NineSortJam It is a sad but true fact that a documentary is automatically better if it’s introduced by Sandra Sully. I weep.

via TweetDeck in reply to m_jns

@NineSortJam My point about Four Corners was that if a stand-alone doco needs a presenter at all, there’s the journo who did the story.

So, Four Corners will have in-studio interviews [again]? So it needs O’Brien? Or is it cart-horse time, I wonder? Ta @dananimal @mjcp

via TweetDeck

@GiantGuineaPig Well given that it’s a routine security/bug fix for Office, there should be ZERO new “extra cool stuff”, I reckon.

via TweetDeck in reply to GiantGuineaPig

“Kerry O’Brien to present Four Corners next year”, people are saying? Why does Four Corners even need a presenter? What a waste.

@jonoabroad I must admit, I only stay with MS Office because of a perceived effort to move things to something else.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad This is Office 2008, so just the standard previous thing. It’s Office, so if your sister is used to it then maybe stay with it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Amused that a Microsoft Office 2008 for Mac software update can be half a gigabyte. Just how much was wrong to begin with?

@tom_cowie They have actual sport in America? You mean, it’s not just in the movies?

via TweetDeck in reply to tom_cowie

@tom_cowie I presume I’ve never heard of Bill Simmons because he covers sport, which is of zero interest to me.

via TweetDeck in reply to tom_cowie

I always remove FeedProxy tracking data and suchlike from URLs before RTing. Apart from the intrusion, they’re just plain ugly.
