I think I had better go away now.

@ScottRhodie Huh? You mean you don’t have NBN pajamas? How about edible underwear? /cc @RealNickHodge

via TweetDeck

So @raajmenon in Willunga has 100Mbps NBN via @Internode and I am jealous. I love the cons he lists. http://arseh.at/8dy

via TweetDeck

Flannel NBN jammies, @RealNickHodge? I HAVE NO NBN JAMMIES! @ScottRhodie had better fix this or I will turn on them with such spite!

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge Relocate the creepy crawlies? The lazy sods can relocate themselves! They’ve got 4x my leg count.

I have seen the spider, and she has seen me, and now she has wandered off somewhere. I would never hurt her, @RealNickHodge

Dear Huntsman Spider Trying To Hide On The Bedside Table: Fail.

The @mpesce refers to my article “The only NBN monopoly seems to be on ignorance” http://arseh.at/8cn

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: You know, Malcolm is going to touch you inappropriately because of your @ABCthedrum artice. [One can only hope. I’m lonely.]

via TweetDeck

Actually, I suspect the thing that uses the most energy here is my MacBook Pro, ‘cos its power supply doesn’t cut back consumption properly.

via TweetDeck

At this point I should probably not mention the 4kW petrol generator.

via TweetDeck

Yes, @RealNickHodge, I’m burning carbons in that sucker. 12, 13, 14, any carbons I can find. Sustainable carbons from ethical trees.

For those following the Morsø Jernstøberi wood-burning stove thriller, this is the pic you want. http://yfrog.com/khc1jtj HT @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck

RT @wolfcat: ( now with less typo’s ) [Or, as I’d sub it, “now with fewer typos”. Less/fewer fix, remove random apostrophe.]

via TweetDeck

RT @jeamland: Nø reely, a Morsø once bit my sister… [Gotta love a literary reference…]

via TweetDeck

@gevauden Do you think this strategy is wise? DO YOU NOT UNDERSTAND THE DANGER OF ZOMBIE PIGS? [Oink.]

via TweetDeck in reply to gevauden

I’ll say it again. The Morsø Jernstøberi wood-burning stove in this house is truly glorious. Can’t find a pic of the exact model though.

@alexkidman Take your fingers off the keyboard now, and walk away from the computer. Keep your hands where I can see them. /cc @flexnib

via TweetDeck in reply to alexkidman

@alexkidman @flexnib I’d have thought there’s only a handful of choices when it comes to sour squirmy worm injections.

via TweetDeck in reply to alexkidman

RT @jplonie: The people who had the forethought to archive the web for history are the real criminals. [True dat.]

via TweetDeck

@oliyoung I doubt that you’re alone in wishing that the Internet Archive’s Wayback Machine wasn’t quite so good.

via TweetDeck in reply to oliyoung

Digging old versions of my personal websites out of the Wayback Machine. Like, 1996. Scary. http://arseh.at/8do

via TweetDeck

RT @flexnib: Ok have ODed on Sour Squirms >.< [Not possible.]

via TweetDeck

@lifewithlilycat @valeriekhoo It’s yet another example of how difficult it is to kill misinformation. Propaganda relies on that…

via TweetDeck in reply to lifewithlilycat

That punctuation-poor magazine cover I just linked to? It’s a fake. Sorry. Sigh. http://arseh.at/8dh HT @DDsD

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Quite possibly this image has relevance. Some folks would rather not view it in mixed company. http://arseh.at/8dg

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. This REALLY shows the importance of punctuation. http://arseh.at/8df HT @valeriekhoo

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Indeed, “Patch Monday” should be a stroll down memory lane for you this week.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@RealNickHodge @NewtonMark I would not be surprised to discover that Jamestown is the debauchery capital of the Southern Hemisphere.

via TweetDeck

RT me: “Patch Monday” podcast: “ISP filtering goes ‘voluntary’” with @NewtonMark @peterjblack & Aust Christian Lobby. http://arseh.at/8cv

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Yes, young man, apparently you are quite irresponsible. I let that tactic stand because I think it speaks for itself.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Punctuation is so important.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer What does the Tories Bear look like? This? http://arseh.at/8dd Or this? http://arseh.at/8de

“Shady Characters: The secret life of punctuation”, a blog what typophiles might, erm, phile. http://arseh.at/8db

“Why did Telstra’s share price fall post deal?” @phildobbie explains. http://arseh.at/8d9

“How to pick a password that’s hard to hack”, a fair version from the LA Times. http://arseh.at/8d8 HT @paulwallbank

@wordmistressAUS I can’t DM ‘cos you’re not following, but feel free to run stuff by me to cross-check facts. I’m not precious about words.

via TweetDeck in reply to wordmistressAUS

@wordmistressAUS Sure, quote me as much as you like. Just by name is fine. A link to my website or the specific item piece if digital, ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to wordmistressAUS

@wordmistressAUS No problems. This 10-min radio spot I did last week also covers some of the NBN basics. http://arseh.at/8ao

via TweetDeck in reply to wordmistressAUS

@leslienassar You are such a help, in so many social situations. Has anyone ever told you that?

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

Hello to the real @AlanKohler now nn Twitter. Please be very nice to him, folks. Sucking up to the proprietor always looks good, right?

via TweetDeck

Mid-afternoon slump. Blergle.

via TweetDeck

OK, my current residential situation is such that PayPal’s standard procedure doesn’t work. Kelly is escalating to compliance. Helpful.

via TweetDeck

Right. I’m now going to phone PayPal and attempt to (finally) resolve the arsehattery I wrote about in May. http://arseh.at/76r

via TweetDeck

Unlike Telstra & Optus, Primus isn’t sure what it’s doing about it’s voluntary ISP filtering commitment. http://arseh.at/8d2

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad It’s just Volts potential difference across battery outputs. It’s indicative of total kWh in storage, another gauge shows that.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

What a glorious day in the Blue Mountains! Only 11C temperature, but bright, clear and sunny with no wind. And 54.4V in the battery.

Westpac reckons bank account portability is too hard. http://arseh.at/8cy @charispalmer deflates that claim. http://arseh.at/8cz

“Patch Monday” podcast: “ISP filtering goes ‘voluntary’” with @NewtonMark @peterjblack & Aust Christian Lobby. http://arseh.at/8cv

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! And now to do something warming and pleasurable with a chicken.

via TweetDeck

@jclacherty @NewtonMark Indeed, there’s a whole ‘nuther article about NBN POIs and backhaul and competition. Maybe @GreenJ wants that too?

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @jclacherty And yes, that meant considering the neighborhood-to-POI link part of the CAN rather than backhaul.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @jclacherty I deliberately glossed over the subtleties of backhaul ‘cos the piece was already over target length.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Botheration. I put too much wood into the stove earlier. Does anyone feel like a sauna?

via TweetDeck

Interview recorded. Now to quickly edit it, record my links and package up the podcast. That’ll take an hour, I reckon.

via TweetDeck

About to record an interview with Australian Christian Lobby’s Lyle Shelton to drop into today’s “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar I can’t take credit for the headline, I’m afraid. I filed the @ABCthedrum op-ed without one ‘cos creativity escaped me.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@anthonygrego If Alan Jones is saying the opposite to me, I figure I’m on the right track then. The man lies to his audience.

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonygrego

@jplonie You can hear Benioff do his “Beware the false cloud” routine on this podcast. Very roadside preacher. http://arseh.at/2ot

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@Bustler Ta. I suspect Telstra shareholders hope the opposite, that Kohler is right and I’m wrong. Though we’re not mutually exclusive.

via TweetDeck in reply to Bustler

From @37signals, a rant against “Tech journalists who make no sense” http://arseh.at/8cs HT my RSS reader and @trib

via TweetDeck

RT @bigjsl: I hope they squander the $11bil on cloud & dividends. [Not that you’re biased, Sir, but scary thing is I can see it happening.]

via TweetDeck

I wonder when other commentators looking at Telstra will stop the “O noes! No moar copperz!’ and ponder what $11 billion could buy them.

via TweetDeck

Alan Kohler also has “Telstra-NBN deal: doing the maths” http://arseh.at/8co but did @NewtonMark spot a problem? http://arseh.at/8cp

via TweetDeck

@ABCthedrum I think the last par in my thing should now say “Thursday” rather than “yesterday”. The weekend wasn’t that, um, distorted.

via TweetDeck in reply to ABCthedrum

“The only NBN monopoly seems to be on ignorance”, says the headline on my thing at @ABCthedrum http://arseh.at/8cn

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday podcast; brunch; plan client webby-work; write an article; plan more articles; quiet night.
