@stufromoz I haven’t got a feel for the scale of telco call centres. 40 sounds … a significant number of sackings?

@ericalloyd Thanks. It’s always good to drop in the occasional Middle English word. Though “ken” is perhaps more Scottish.

Apparently editing the user dictionary that TweetDeck uses, to remove mistakes, requires arcane magic beyond the ken of mere mortals.

What a strange, blurry two-hour half-nap that was. That’s what extended insomnia then a hot day will do for you, I suppose.

Home again. Sweaty. Disappointed that the rain didn’t hit Enmore.

Mobile: Enmore Rd, probably, for lunch; potential errand to King St; remainder TBA depending on air temperature.

As soon as I have finished scanning this dead rat [not a euphemism] I shall seek out lunch.

I was wondering who ister Drysdale was, @Colvinius. Worked for Fraser? Hmmm. And yes, a lot of ifs. Nice thought experiment though.

@katedoak Erm, the Mbox is used. I used it. Repeatedly. Indoors and outdoors.

@jasonlangenauer People buy all sorts of old shit if it’s got an Apple logo on the front. It disturbs me.

via TweetDeck

It’s the 15” version, @damonism, but either way it seems worth the effort of wiping the drive and selling the little sucker.

via TweetDeck

Well I can see them selling for $150+ on eBay, @fictillius, so maybe it’s worth it. I’m starting to wipe the hard drive now.

I wonder if anyone would want to buy my old PowerBook G4 running Tiger.

@phonakins Thank you. Househunting is a PITA at any time, of course, but more so when the timing is bad and health isn’t good.

Hang on. Who changed that weather order? 33C in Sydney today? With the air conditioning broken? There goes my productivity!

@lottruminates But I appreciate you explaining how Twitter works. I’d have never worked it out otherwise. Your advice is invaluable.

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates You didn’t point to anything that clarified or corrected, you just told me I was wrong and started lecturing me. Difference.

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates Oh? So that’s how Twitter works? People can see what I say, and can respond? FFS! WHY DIDN’T YOU TELL ME EARLIER?

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates But I agree, I should read every book, paper and tweet by people before I link to a news article that quotes them. Practical.

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates Thank you. I enjoy being lectured at by strangers about how I should read the work of someone whose work I read. It helps.

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates Actually, I retract that. I’m sorry for not including stuff which wasn’t even in the article in my tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to lottruminates

@lottruminates I’m terribly sorry for not including every word in the article in my tweet about it.
