Struggling to stay awake.

I seem to be having vowel problems.

Somoene in the crowd at the cricket is playing “The Final Countdown” on trumpet. It is the End Time.

via TweetDeck

@jayrosen_nyu In the context of you may want to look at what @JonPowles has just been tweeting. Curiouser and curiouser.

via TweetDeck in reply to jayrosen_nyu

Also, I do not wish to follow up ANY of your tweets related to “sphincter competence”. The entire concept is wrong. Just wrong.

via TweetDeck

I think I might start a national newspaper just so I can sue the lot of you unruly cunts.

via TweetDeck

I could sit here and watch this all day. We have some odd tribes in this village.

via TweetDeck

Watching the signals of tribalism emerging.

via TweetDeck

I really didn’t need to know that there is such a thing as “sphincter competence”.

via TweetDeck

@paininthenet NOOOOOO! That was a joke! I am not in Crikey’s Melbourne office! DO NOT TRUST ME!

via TweetDeck in reply to paininthenet

@paininthenet Alternatively you can just send me your credit card details and I promise trooly rooly not to go buy new furniture.

via TweetDeck in reply to paininthenet

@crikey_news I think someone needs to see this. @paininthenet is possibly unhappy. http://arseh.at/29h

via TweetDeck

Alas I have no direct link to the Crikey free trial process, @ericscheid, but I’m told that subs@crikey.com.au people are helpful.

via TweetDeck

“Wax tubes”, @rycrozier @jdub? Why does that get me a little… excited?

via TweetDeck

Guy Rundle’s Crikey piece on WikiLeaks is free to read though. http://arseh.at/29g Does that make me MOAR SPESHUL?

via TweetDeck

Me at Crikey: “WikiLeaks slammed by Wikipedia co-founder, disrupted by hacker” http://arseh.at/29f [Paywall’d, free trial]

via TweetDeck

@angelavoipierre I should mention that most organisations are “doing it wrong” ‘cos their disaster recovery plan doesn’t exist.

via TweetDeck in reply to angelavoipierre

@angelavoipierre Amazon has stable, secure infrastructure. Whether this is permanent depends on paying the bills and Amazon’s T&Cs.

via TweetDeck in reply to angelavoipierre

Whether WikiLeaks is on ACMA’s blacklist or not is unknown, @sexenheimer, unless someone uses a product that uses it?

via TweetDeck

@angelavoipierre “Quick”? If you can’t move your hosting in under four hours then you’re doing it wrong.

via TweetDeck

WikiLeaks’ stuff is hosted on a separate domain http://cablegate.wikilea… out of Amazon and octopuce.fr.

via TweetDeck

It appears that WikiLeaks is back up and running, hosted out of Amazon’s cloudy bits.

via TweetDeck

That snarky FT article on Australia’s parliament is quite amusing, I agree. And snarky. http://arseh.at/29c

via TweetDeck

RT @JohnBirmingham: Why is my master Steve Jobs allowing Rupert Murdoch to wear his turtlenecks? [To hide the electric collar?]

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; lunch; errands; back to my desk because there’s things to be done this afternoon, unfortunately.

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast at @zdnetaustralia: “Cybercrime: the FBI’s worldview” http://arseh.at/295

via TweetDeck

Personally, I’d have thought that if you’re citing a report as evidence, you’d at least mention its title. [grumble]

via TweetDeck

I’ll start watching everyone doing the selective-quote thing a bit later. Meanwhile I reckon it’s time for lunch or brunch or some meal.

via TweetDeck

And here is the report! “Superfast: Is It Really Worth a Subsidy?” http://arseh.at/293

via TweetDeck

Here’s @JohnQuiggin’s take on said report. http://arseh.at/292 Still looking for said report.

via TweetDeck

@purserj I’ve no idea. The report isn’t even named in that Fairfax/AAP story, let alone linked to. It’s not on tghe agency’s website.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

“Labor downplays critical report on NBN”: evidence supporting fibre claims “surprisingly weak” http://arseh.at/290

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed!

via TweetDeck

New “A Series of Tubes” podcast with @R_Chirgwin and me talking NBN business plans, product roadmaps, POIs, politics. http://arseh.at/28v

via TweetDeck

I’m glad you added search to your website, @franksting, that’ll great for people whose internets don’t have Google or Bing.

via TweetDeck

RT @deptofinternets: Slacktivism has reached its final, perfect state; http://arseh.at/28r [I agree. This is glorious. Can we all go now?]

via TweetDeck

@kwyjibo79 You missed the following tweet, maybe? Where I point out that’s only amongst the docs published by The Guardian thus far.

via TweetDeck in reply to hailants

@Wyld I have yet to decide my pornoscan versus gropesearch strategy for the US. Maybe a little from column A, a little…

via TweetDeck in reply to Wyld

Mon plan: Write for Crikey; lunch & errands; review two new client projects; planning for US trip (a week away!); quiet evening.

via TweetDeck

Ah yes, @th3j35t3r has taken responsibility for the DoS attack on WikiLeaks. Background at http://arseh.at/28q Thanks, @ikostar

via TweetDeck

cuntoftheweek Sarah Palin is Cunt of the Week for being a media whore, being perennially fucking stupid and for demeaning US politics. http://bit.ly/M6tBk

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 8:03 AM, Nov 29th, 2010 via TweetDeck)

RT @mjec: DDoS traffic looks slightly different to popularity. Not to say @wikileaks necessarily knows that. [Also, economical with truth.]

via TweetDeck

WikiLeaks claims it’s under DDoS attack. http://arseh.at/28p Or just overloaded? Or just awash in its own sense of self-righteousness?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Je crois que la «Passion Pop» fera l’objet du ridicule au Daghestan.

via TweetDeck

I think that might be my new catch-phrase. “It’s practically the same thing.” It’s so… practical.

via TweetDeck

Well, that’s one of the documents read. 249,999 to go.

via TweetDeck

“[Drunk FSB colonel] highly insulted … we would not allow him to add ‘cognac’ to our wine. “It’s practically the same thing,” he insisted.

via TweetDeck

“The Dagestani milieu appears to be one in which the highly educated and the gun-toting can mix easily — often in the same person.”

via TweetDeck

“The alcohol consumption before, during and after this Muslim wedding was stupendous… thousands of bottles of Beluga Export vodka.”

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je dois remercier les gens puissants du Daghestan pour inspirer mon prochain dîner. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“Main activity of the day was eating and drinking”, “sodden with drink”, “bout of jet skiing in the Caspian”, “a couple of Azeri pop stars”.

via TweetDeck

North Caucusus oil-power relationships revealed at rowdy Dagestani wedding. http://arseh.at/28o

via TweetDeck

NYT’s coverage of WikiLeaks’ “The US Embassy Cables”, again only a small selection published: http://arseh.at/28n

via TweetDeck

Correction. That’s only the limited subset of documents that The Guardian has put online. 58 of 250,000-odd cables.

via TweetDeck

The Guardian’s well-structured site on WikiLeaks’ “The US Embassy Cables”: nothing directly on Australia. http://arseh.at/28m

via TweetDeck

“Oh you naughty tweeters - you’ve upset the establishment”, says @jjn1. About UK, but explains The Australian. http://arseh.at/28l

Cannes Gold Palm-nominated short “Truth in Advertising” from 2001, worth re-visiting. http://arseh.at/28k HT @JuzMcMuz

StatSheet’s “robot army” writes college basketball news using statistics. http://arseh.at/28j Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

via TweetDeck

Students? “You can smell the self-interest and grubby ambition lurking beneath the veneer of unworkable ideals.” http://arseh.at/28i

via TweetDeck

Oh. The WikiLeaks thing. I suppose I’d better get up to speed on that. That means getting out of bed. Coffee. Maybe event pants.

via TweetDeck

NYT feature explains how an arsehole uses customer complaints to boost his Googlejuice. http://arseh.at/28h

via TweetDeck

That’s outrageous.

via TweetDeck

Oh I get it. Monday. Right.
