That’s enough for one Tuesday, unless you know the Secret Methods. Gone.

Thank you @zuzu @kelisha @retrogrrl @moldor @Reemski @jplonie we’ll see what we discover tomorrow.

New blog post: “Artemis’ kidneys are not responding”. And yet “even more feisty”. http://arseh.at/3ai

via TweetDeck

News about Artemis has just been phoned through. It is decidedly, um, mixed. On way home to write it up. Stand by.

@csimps0n My disgust is about it preying on people’s natural inclination to be generous and give away far more than that dollar.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

@csimps0n It’s not a dollar for a click [action]. It’s a dollar to be a “fan”, far more value, allows your image to be used in marketing.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

@csimps0n I was filled with contempt two decades before Twitter was even thought of.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

@csimps0n I think you’re wrong to associate the bad behaviour with the medium. It’s just normal human nature laid bare.

via TweetDeck in reply to csimps0n

I stand corrected since the identity of the commenter was just revealed.

Hilarious 3rd comment on @Davidramli’s piece about Bing Lee. Not obviously an interested party at all, no. http://arseh.at/3a9

via TweetDeck

But @eddit0r an “army duck”, as in a DUKW, is still aquatic, no? http://arseh.at/3ad

via TweetDeck

@GeordieGuy Well, it’s not just hanging out where I do, it’s also choosing to listen. Most folks have things in their ears.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

An “aquatic duck”? As opposed to…?

@WallabyRoad Harvey Norman has donated $200,000 to currently, since you asked.

RT @Colgo: The news.com.au home page is currently in a stripped-down format to allow the site cope with the traffic surge from

via TweetDeck

@HappySinger @franksting The FB comments are sad, yes. People don’t realise becoming a fan is worth FAR more than $1 to a retailer.

“Bing Lee uses Queensland floods to boost Facebook fans”, writes @Davidramli http://arseh.at/3a9 Ping @ilikebinglee

via TweetDeck

@Davidramli Oh I certainly don’t mind, Sir! Let me just pimp that link…

via TweetDeck in reply to Davidramli

Has someone replaced the Prime Minister with a robot again?

via TweetDeck

I see @ilikebinglee is trying, and in my opinion failing, to spin their way out of this. http://arseh.at/3a8

via TweetDeck

On a different topic, yes, there will be blood test results for Artemis in the next hour or so. We’ll see whether her kidneys responded.

via TweetDeck

For @ilikebinglee that $10k ceiling on their donation-with-a-catch is 0.002% of their annual turnover. Now there’s true generosity, eh?

via TweetDeck

Not that it’s a pissing contest, but if Harvey Norman can just GIVE $200k as a donation, @noates, then it makes @ilikebinglee look lamer.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong How very Thai, they’ve finally decided? Well done.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

I mean, if my followers can donate $3000+ for a desperately sick cat with no strings, a major retailer like @ilikebinglee can do far better.

via TweetDeck

I should probably mention @ilikebinglee so they pick up my previous tweets and see how exploitative I, and others, think their actions are.

via TweetDeck

@lomantik And you’ve stayed sane? I’ll have to send you the Special Information Package. And sedatives.

via TweetDeck in reply to lomantik

The damage is indeed repaired, @SnarkyPlatypus. Or at least it feels that way.

via TweetDeck

Exactly, @M_Hickinbotham, there’s lots of variables but I’d have guessed that $1/fan would be a bargain price for setting up a fan base.

via TweetDeck

Ordering a third thing.

via TweetDeck

The more I think about it, Bing Lee and Appliances Online’s strategy is just off. Tasteless. Not “looting”, @facespacetwit, but poor form.

via TweetDeck

I see Appliances Online is also going the friend-on-Facebook fundraising look. http://arseh.at/3a4 HT @lomantik

via TweetDeck

Could a marketing person please tell me what the usual acquisition cost for a new fan would be for a Bing Lee-like business?

via TweetDeck

Bing Lee, just GIVING money and goods is a better look. Plus you’re big enough to add a zero or two. http://arseh.at/3a3

Some people really are idiots.

No @jasonlangenauer the thing is not the $30 thing. Maybe it should be the $30 thing. I will seek advice.

via TweetDeck

There’s actual US/Aust price comparisons in @R_Chirgwin’s piece on the Harvey / GST thingo. http://arseh.at/39z

Ordering a second thing.

via TweetDeck

If consuming a second thing after a first thing is ever a mistake, then a third thing will always repair the damage.

@Anthony_Caruana I can’t quite take the rest of the day off, but I will roll it back to reading and dealing with minor little tasks.

via TweetDeck in reply to Anthony_Caruana

I’ve also just realised I didn’t do a “Tue plan” tweet this morning. I guess that shows what kind of day it’s being. Can I sleep now?

Mobile: Enmore Rd errands; somewhere that’s not my desk to read and research; remainder TBA.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suppose que votre vidéo implique une technique différente pour la gestion de la fatigue. J’approuve.

Je suis extrêmement fatigué. Encore une fois, encore une fois.

Dear Gallery Journalists, I’m seeking to understand this disaster, effects, response. Your political horse-race game disgusts. Fuck off.

via TweetDeck

Extremely disappointed with Gallery journos who, while a huge disaster still unfolding, can only focus on the political point-scoring game.

@NewtonMark @JohnBirmingham “Tail?” Huh? Now I am more confused than even when I started today.

Imagining a saddle on @JohnBirmingham. Just remember, he started it. Giddy up.

You’re allowed to say “frequently hundreds of per cent cheaper” at the ABC, @deptofinternets, ‘cos that’s science. Separate department.

At some point this morning, I shall stop feeling like crap. And at that point, I’ll decide on the day’s targets.

@dsturnbull I don’t think “left” / “right” applies this this esr post at all. But you could, like, read it? It’s not that long.

“Geeks are consumers of culture; hackers are producers”, says Eric S Raymond. http://arseh.at/399

That sounds like a euphemism for something that costs $30 extra.

@ragnarok1971 “Patch Monday” podcast works thru iTunes for me just now, my guess it was a temporary error at CBS’ end.
