Home. Collapsing.

Faking it, successfully.

I’m not drunk.

Latest Artemis news is that kidney enzyme levels moving solidly towards normal. Steady recovery in short term. Good indications. More soon.

via TweetDeck

@johnvacy Oh Richie Wilkins, I had no idea we were so intimate and informal!

via TweetDeck in reply to john_nee_vacy

Idiot. Don’t ask her. She’s clueless too.

via TweetDeck

What on earth would you do with a gaff-rigged two-masted ship anyway?

via TweetDeck

OH EVEN IF YOU DON’T KNOW FOR SURE THE ANSWER IS SO FUCKING OBVIOUS YOU CAN JUST GUESS YOU MUPPET!

via TweetDeck

Eddie McGuire is so hot.

via TweetDeck

No signs of a Willisee yet, nor even a Daddo brother, @johnvacy. I guess we’ll be stuck with Richard Wilkins.

via TweetDeck

Oh good. Channel Nine to the rescue. Australia is safe again. Though ninemsn still ain’t got this flood charity show on the home page.

via TweetDeck

Why does the weather forecast require a flashing glinting 3D rendering of the word “weather” spinning across the screen? Insecurity much?

via TweetDeck

@KyBusiness I’ve been having a Friday all day, I think. I have accomplished nothing.

via TweetDeck in reply to KyBusiness

Since there may still be people who don’t know the blog “Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber”… http://arseh.at/36v

@Colvinius @NewtonMark @BernardKeane @GeordieGuy See? These $2.80 neck protectors are truly a bonus!

via TweetDeck in reply to Colvinius

I’m tall enough, as it happens.

via TweetDeck

I’m glad Channel Nine is showing “The Shak”, because it really is the best program on network TV this decade. Or any other.

via TweetDeck

RT @deconstructo: Maybe it says “you gotta be this tall to ride me”… [Well, he was rather tall…]

via TweetDeck

Oh \God that bogan there has two lines of Thai tattood on his neck. I hope it says something unsavoury involving elephants.

via TweetDeck

@Colvinius @NewtonMark @BernardKeane @GeordieGuy And RPG-7s have piezoelectric fuzes, it says at Wikipedia. http://arseh.at/36t

via TweetDeck

@darrenpauli Hah! That won’t go down well. ;) It’s OK, I’m sure inspiration will strike across the weekend.

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenpauli

Failing to think of a theme for the “Patch Monday” podcast. Failing to do anything productive, actually. My brain is mush today.

via TweetDeck

“Five of these can also be used to create a cold fusion reactor, a real bargain. Just don’t take one apart…”

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane Exactly! Subverting the entire structure of modern physics for under $3 is a bonus. Normally you need CERN and a few billion.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@WarWraith Ah, court cases and conversations with in-laws are so easy to confuse… it’s about the wigs, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

Oh @mootpointer @dlachlan I am seriously not across anything to do with Vodafone currently. I’ve been, erm, busy. Distracted. Insane.

via TweetDeck

Oh look, @NewtonMark! “IR Infrared Magnetic Therapy Self-Heating Neck Protector” at dealextreme.com! http://arseh.at/36s

via TweetDeck

@dlachlan I haven’t been following the Vodafone class action at all, sorry, so I have no opinion.

via TweetDeck in reply to dlachlan

I daresay we’re talking small amounts of data, @rycrozier, but advertising anything as “infinite” is still a straight out lie, eh Vodafone?

via TweetDeck

Vodafone advertising “infinite social networking”? How long before they get told that”s as dishonest as “unlimited”? Fuckwits.

via TweetDeck

Yes, it was, but not everyone got that part.

via TweetDeck

@DrMiaow “AusPac 0014”? Gawd, I think I remember dialling into that thing in the 80s. This gets scarier as the day goes along…

via TweetDeck in reply to DrMiaow

My my my, the English cricket team really is a prime collection of desirable and attractive manflesh, isn’t it.

via TweetDeck

@BeauGiles @jpoh Why can’t you stab them in the face?

via TweetDeck

Well that’s the fastest-forming consensus I’ve ever seen! It’s in the Magna Carta, you say @BundyB? Well, can’t argue with that!

via TweetDeck

Just checking, but in 2011 we’re still allowed to stab hipsters, right?

via TweetDeck

Transvision Vamp? WTF? I’ll have to find a way to prevent that happening again.

via TweetDeck

She just left, taking the man she just met for lunch before she meets her girlfriend Rhianna at the cinema.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: One word: tranquilisers. [For me or for her? That’s the question…]

via TweetDeck

My God. She’s 42. She looks older than me. All that Australian sunlight takes its toll…

via TweetDeck

She is now attempting to rock out to LCD Soundsystem. Dancing in her seat while inviting the random young man to some event on Sunday.

via TweetDeck

@barrysaunders I’m hardly surprised there’s APANA and Indymedia links. The provide-tools-to-community attitude is much the same.

via TweetDeck

@shermozle I seem to recall having some outrageous $3/minute dial-up internet access. Compuserve, maybe even. Scary.

via TweetDeck in reply to shermozle

@ApostrophePong Her presents are some books, including a story by Mem Fox, a well-known SA children’s author.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Official Dept Defence photos of HMAS Melbourne’s anti-piracy operation with UK-flagged tanker CPO China. http://arseh.at/36p

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh you would love this glorious clash of aesthetics! She’s really, really trying to be young and hip and failing dismally.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

What astounds me, @shermozle, is that I seemto be connected somehow to half the bloody people behind APANA!

via TweetDeck

Oh she’s definitely a grandmother, @ApostrophePong, she showed me the presents she bought for her granddaughter.

via TweetDeck

@shermozle Yeah I don’t even think I could use a network that didn’t exist. ;) It must’ve been a FIDONet BBS with an internet UUCP gateway.

via TweetDeck in reply to shermozle

She buys him a drink, but has trouble. “Boomers…? Boo…? What beer?” “No, Bulmers. It’s a cider.”

via TweetDeck

Snarfing some random young man walking past, she reads cards for him. Less convincing given she has to read the interpretation from a book.

via TweetDeck

Grandmother trying to be 25yo again. Bleached and permed, black hairband, and dancing to her jukebox music: Coldplay.

via TweetDeck

And I had a 20MB hard drive too, @NewtonMark @jplonie :P This one. http://arseh.at/36o

via TweetDeck

@jplonie @NewtonMark Oh dear, this nostalgia is becoming ridiculous. :)

via TweetDeck

Yes @zerogeewhiz I’m meaning the Suburbia as in suburbia.com.au / suburbia.org.au … ah all this history! Ta for the tip!

via TweetDeck

@peter_tonoli I remember APANA being relatively conservative, process-oriented. I imagine Suburbia / Assange was, um, less so.

via TweetDeck in reply to peter_tonoli

@peter_tonoli I think the dots are simply trying to understand the politics and culture of the non-commercial internet at that time.

via TweetDeck in reply to peter_tonoli

@viveka @NewtonMark Oh, I had a Pegasus address too. And FIDONet. And, oh, God, I might stop now.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I know your connection, Mark! apanix.apana.org.au was how I connected to the internets in the… erm… even late 80s?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Indeed @NewtonMark I knew Assange ran Suburbia, hence my enquiry. A colleague is trying to join some dots and find some names.

via TweetDeck

Hey any fellow old-fart geeks know whether APANA is still doing anything? Website updated 2006! Also, was Suburbia ever part of APANA?

via TweetDeck

I don’t think it’s a Rickroll if you just hear Rick Astley. I think the essence of the word is that deception or misdirection is involved.

via TweetDeck

@darrenpauli Nah, I’m not really a “big reader” of anything, but I browse all sorts of shit.

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenpauli

Actually, make that bigger than a WWII aircraft carrier. It’s 47,000 tons. A US Essex-class is about 32,000 tons.

via TweetDeck

New Finnish-built car ferry in English Channel as big as WWII aircraft carrier. http://arseh.at/36i

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd lunch / errands; possible errand to King St; remainder TBA. Still pondering ideas for the “Patch Monday” podcast too.

via TweetDeck

@ibbers Artemis is named after the Greek goddess of the hunt. The other cat is Apollo. He was Artemis’ twin sister, though the cats are not.

via TweetDeck in reply to Prohairetic

Fri plan: Proper breakfast up the road shortly; shopping & errands; plan Patch Monday podcast; client webby work to wrap the day; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

Thank you @therevmountain @seanpryor @Shaunnagh @viveka @trib the latest Artemis news is now all at http://arseh.at/368 in its own category.

via TweetDeck

@HeraldSunEye Indeed, this is all truly amazing, and such a wonderful example of people’s generosity of spirit.

via TweetDeck

My God. Bank account has another $845 that’s come in, in addition to the $2100-odd thru PayPal. Some I can’t identify. Thank you so much.

via TweetDeck

@caldron_baidu Oh I’d love to take the ay off, but I really do need to get some billable hours in, and get “Patch Monday” podcast sorted.

via TweetDeck in reply to caldron_baidu

RT @NewtonMark: Newtown sunshine breaks / Stil stands for his morning piss / Poetry later. [That’s lovely. I think.]

via TweetDeck

@caldron_baidu Thank you. The support has been astounding, but I’ve been running on adrenalin, I think, and now I’m just wiped out today.

via TweetDeck in reply to caldron_baidu

It’s too early for poetry.

via TweetDeck

The latest Artemis news is at http://arseh.at/368 @caldron_baidu, I am just waking up, or trying to. Exhausted but OK.
