OH: “Do they even have cheese at Seven Hills?”

via TweetDeck

Since when does “joy without limits” involve an orangutan? Optus, you are sick fucks.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Simon le Bon has aged…”

via TweetDeck

The Prime Minister’s XI is presumably like Nero’s fiddle, but with respect to flooding rather than fire.

Plus, @VIRGINBLUE, surely you’re not so gullible as to buy that bullshit about water not being “international standard” unless bottled? Hah!

via TweetDeck

And besides, @VIRGINBLUE, the “legal ramifications” are the same whether you serve water from a bottle or a tap. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Hey @VIRGINBLUE, regardless of this passenger’s complaint, drinking water is a basic health need, not “catering”. http://arseh.at/38p

Everything about Artemis’ [cat] condition is being posted at http://arseh.at/368 @clairemarieking. There probably won’t be any news today.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if there’s anything in the house that’d tell me what my FIDONet email address was. I suspect there is. I’ll check when I get home.

via TweetDeck

Memories, yes @expectproblems … Certain proddings from a certain journalist have got me digging out certain old BBS connections.

via TweetDeck

I did click “Active Nodes”, yes @NewtonMark, and was a little bit thrilled. ;)

via TweetDeck

Goodness me, the FIDONet website seems to be a little bit out of date… ;) http://www.fidonet.org/

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @jasonlangenauer Surely one doesn’t pay for one’s own celebratory hookers and blow?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Sadly, 50,000 tweets did not trigger the appearance of hookers or blow, celebratory or otherwise.

via TweetDeck

Interesting comments coming back on my Crikey piece re Vodafone, too, including some solid disagreement. http://arseh.at/38j

via TweetDeck

The consensus is that I did use the wrong word. I’m not especially worried, given I just confused “here” with “hear” in a Crikey comment.

via TweetDeck

Did I confuse the usage of “affect” and “effect” just before?

via TweetDeck

The key thing about Artemis’ treatment now is that bloods are only taken every 48 hours. It takes time for any changes to have an affect.

via TweetDeck

No further news about Artemis yet today, @moldor, nor perhaps any, but if there is it’ll be posted at http://arseh.at/368 within an hour.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Up Enmore Rd and, potentially, beyond in search of lunch and the fulfillment of certain errands.

via TweetDeck

@iain_chalmers You’re right, but I didn’t think it worth explaining the difference between password hashes and encryption. Not this time.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

Je suis extrêmement fatigué. Encore une fois.

Me at Crikey: “Vodafone’s infosec balls-up a symptom of wider problems” http://arseh.at/38j

via TweetDeck

True @bgosford @thetowncrier “moonbattery” is a fine word.

via TweetDeck

@infoholic I’m fairly sure the figure is that “overseas online retail” is ~2 to 3% of total Australian retail. It was [ahem] from memory.

via TweetDeck in reply to infoholic

@thetowncrier Awwwwww… But what word or words could possibly convey the same rich flavours as “arsehattery”?

via TweetDeck in reply to thetowncrier

RT @infoholic: “Arsemillinery” also opens the scope to use a term like “arsefascinator”. [I think I like the direction this is heading…]

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed! Whew! What a busy morning that was!

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast at @zdnetaustralia: “Avoiding Vodafone’s Wikileaks moment” http://arseh.at/38f

via TweetDeck

Oh I do like “arsemillinery”, @BJBurch! That adds a certain amount of class to the proceedings, I feel.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if @thetowncrier will let me use the word “arsehattery” in my piece for Crikey today. We shall see…

via TweetDeck

RT @pilky: First Wikileaks, then their followers. Next the follower’s followers. Eventually the US will get their real target: Kevin Bacon

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! And now, it seems, a quick piece for Crikey. Ah, Mondays!

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; brunch & local errands; client webby stuff, late from late week sigh; gym & dinner, it says here.

via TweetDeck

The last Artemis update was yesterday evening http://arseh.at/368 There will be a minor update very late this afternoon. Thanks everyone.

via TweetDeck

Emerges. Cautiously, and in a little pain. Well, quite a bit of pain. Bloody back.
