@NickHodgeMSFT You can fit a lot of pigeons in a ute. A lot.

@retrogrrl I should have said “coarse” rather than “crude”. “Arsehat” is a fine woody word, not tinny at all. http://youtu.be/T70-HTlK…

@retrogrrl I’ve certainly found “arsehat” to be a useful addition to the spectrum of swearing. A not-too-harsh mix of crudity and ridicule.

@mpesce Actually as a word I think “half-assed” is really quite fully-arsed. It’s a useful concept.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

It does not include “arsehat”, but dates “half-arsed” to 1961, “half-assed” to 1932. So now you know.

Main interview for “Patch Monday” podcast has just been recorded. Since it’s about surviving disasters, I’m now backing up the audio file.

I should have organised cheese for tonight.

@sylmobile “Devout Nasal Irrigator”? I don’t know where to even begin asking about the theology of that! Does it involve squid?

@CPKHarris I will be talking properly to http://qlditrelief.org/ at some point in the next 24 hours.

That previous link is to part of NYT’s excellent “Disunion” blog, following the Civil War as it unfolded 150 years later.

Pre-Civil War, US was just 4% of trans-Atlantic slave trade. But their ban made all the difference. http://arseh.at/3ez

@ApostrophePong Opposite here of course. Channel Nine is compulsory in every pub. This is a mixed blessing.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong But Sydney is not Queensland. Sydney or Bangkok, you’re still not “there” in the sense of being where thing are unfolding.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Indeed I had seen the Nine flood coverage drinking game, @ApostrophePong http://arseh.at/3ey All that said, Nine has done great work.

via TweetDeck

Nice touch, Channel Nine, with your promo, “Thank you to the people of Queensland for sharing your stories… It’s been humbling.”

Mobile: Stanmore Rd; Newington Inn Hotel for lunch; Borsellino Bros for shopping; back home, probably, for more podcast planning.

If you want to play Zork, you might as well play it via handwriting and a Livescribe Pen, no? http://youtu.be/Bf0XAf8_…

I’m just linking to http://qlditrelief.org/ @gnoll110 I have no connection to or knowledge of them at this stage. I’ll call them later tho.

The 3-2-1 Backup Strategy, and other tips. http://arseh.at/3es HT @infoholic

via TweetDeck

And, @garthk, how many had the documentation like account numbers and logins on paper in the drawer underwater for days?

via TweetDeck

RT @garthk: Crap; how many QLD businesses had off-site backups somewhere else in QLD that got flooded, too? :/ [Exactly. Wanna chat later?]

via TweetDeck

Related aside: “Patch Monday from 19 April 2010: “SMBs, you need to back-up too” with @garthk http://arseh.at/3er

Good suggestions @kcarruthers @iain_chalmers @nigelwadsworth @reselsnark and ta for the reinforcement @JohnBirmingham!

via TweetDeck

I should outsource all my thinking to Twitter. That’d be a good outcome for everyone!

via TweetDeck

OK, you’ve talked me into it. Now the next step in this challenge: Finding interesting and relevant talent on a Sunday afternoon.

via TweetDeck

RT @jason_a_w: I don’t think you should be concerned about providing useful information in a timely way. [Well, put that way… thanks!]

via TweetDeck

RT @deptofinternets: If it helps me to realise (again) the importance of backups, I’d listen. Then I’d do nothing about it (again). [True.]

via TweetDeck

I did think of the h.264 / WebM video format thingo, @jasonlangenauer, but to be honest it bores me and it brings out tedious zealotry.

via TweetDeck

Two of 44 eps per year is a bit much, @reselsnark, but @deptofinternets @djackmanson @jplonie @infoholic @GeordieGuy @jodiem think one’s OK?

via TweetDeck

Mind you, it’d just turn into another round of “Put everything in the Cloud, My Children, and Uncle [Choose Vendor] will save you!”

via TweetDeck

I must admit, “Oh look! Big event in news! Must attach my thing to that thing!” is usually a sign of sheephood. Remember Bing Lee…

via TweetDeck

I still haven’t decided on the topic for “Patch Monday”. Is disaster-proofing your business IT too soon?

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, not in order: One decent meal; household shopping; plan & record core interview(s) for “Patch Monday” podcast; write a thing.

via TweetDeck

Well here we are again…
