It’s not crispy new, but…”Jersey Shore” in the style of Oscar Wilde. http://youtu.be/Mhk5Rjz7…

@ibbers Evelyn Waugh’s “Brideshead Revisited”. 1981 mini-series on ABC iView atm, thought I’d see how it holds up after 20 years.

“Beware of Anglo-Catholics, they’re all sodomites with unpleasant accents.” Oh, Waugh!

Heavy rail missed by 30 sec, now light rail missed by 10 sec. I am the happiest and most cheerful man in Sydney.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Heavy rail then light rail back to the “cave”; in theory, an early night followed by an early start for a day of making medias.

In all likelihood the next “Patch Monday” podcast will be a nice long interview with Amazon’s CTO, Dr Werner Vogel.

@iphoon Gawd, flying from Melbourne to Beijing on Jetstar would be a bit of a road trip! $149 plus how much in pain and anguish?

I think the state of journalism in Australia will be improved if more people screech at each other on Twitter. [nods]

@commuter_dirge @acatinatree As long as @klout has the cat metrics right then it’s worthwhile. Mind you, they demand two names. Fuck ‘em.

Reasons not to treat @klout as gospel, part V: You have more than eleven neurons. “Influence” measures are bullshit. /cc @acatinatree

acatinatree Reasons not to treat @klout as gospel, part IV: several of my “most influential” topics were snarky asides I made which were heavily RT’d

Websites that only show you 6 or 8 pars of a long feature and then demand you re-load their entire graphics-bloated site are run by cunts.

I’ll be at Amazon’s AWS Cloud Tour 2011 in Sydney tomorrow. http://arseh.at/8xl It’s booked out, but I’ll report on it somewhere.

via TweetDeck

Re-assessing the afternoon and evening timelines, given some changes advised by email.

via TweetDeck

Wow. T-rave. It’s really cheesy.

via TweetDeck

It is, however, a shame that comments are not open on @TurnbullMalcolm’s NBN FAQ. http://arseh.at/8xf

via TweetDeck

For your reading pleasure, an NBN FAQ from @TurnbullMalcolm … enjoy! http://arseh.at/8xf

Mobile: Light rail, heavy rail, lunch and errands. With luck, a client might have paid their invoices. With luck.

via TweetDeck

Ah, this guy really has spotted the flaw in the carbon tax. Nice work. http://arseh.at/8xd

via TweetDeck

Waiting for moisture to evaporate so that I can emerge from the cave. Metaphorically.

via TweetDeck

RT @RichardGiles: Can anyone recommend a good projector for office use? [I reckon http://youtu.be/Ps9Sr0HN… would work in most offices.]

via TweetDeck

@Annieb25 Well, I don’t recommend lots of things, but my Google+ op-ed is http://arseh.at/8ve People make their own choices /cc @maggotts50

@matt_levinson I’m not so sure it isn’t “blind early adopterism”. My gut feeling is that the shiny-chasing really does over-ride all else.

via TweetDeck in reply to matt_levinson

@R_BurtonBradley I’m sure there’s a YouTube video explaining how to turn a clothes dryer into some sort of weapon.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_BurtonBradley

Baffled by electricity.

via TweetDeck

Fuck. I just did all of my washing except the one item I really wanted to wear this afternoon. The laundry is conspiring against me!

via TweetDeck

@matt_levinson The point of the article, which I’m sure you read before tweeting, is that the exchange is insufficiently transparent.

As @the_chaser_ taught us, there are several kinds of experts on TV… http://youtu.be/kuPdnTHS…

@carolduncan Oh, I understand how and why it started, with very good intentions. But NSFW has turned into a bizarre puritanism IMO.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

@carolduncan I don’t subscribe to that whole “NSFW” bullshit. How DARE people impose their narrow-mindedness on my working environment.

via TweetDeck in reply to carolduncan

Your cute cat videos have no power over me, @elronxenu, I am sad and bitter, inadequate and middle-aged.

via TweetDeck

Duran Duran’s “Girls on Film” released 30y ago today. Behold! http://youtu.be/-A1Ytk_N… HT @StephenHarrod via @carolduncan

Once I have uploaded these files, @mpesce, I AM NEVAH USING TEH INTARWEBS EVAH AGAIN!

via TweetDeck

RT @darrenpauli: I hear packets conduct better through the air than dirt. [Obviously. Dirt is so… dirty. The grit clogs the tubes.]

via TweetDeck

RT @Cacotopos: Have you tried wireless? I hear wireless is good enough and better than the NBN. It’s like, quantum or something.

via TweetDeck

What’s worse, I can’t really start on any of my other work ‘cos it’ll slow the upload even more. And I’m the only personal in the building.

via TweetDeck

Uploading 2GB of data. It’s taking 4 hours. I’m less than 8km from the Sydney CBD. No, nobody could use the NBN’s speeds. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

RT @NickEvershed: I’m a keen bushwalker and even I’ll admit that webcams give better views of things that’re quite difficult to see. [True.]

via TweetDeck

Personally, I wonder why people don’t just get off their arses and watch the animals that exist all around them. Webcam = moar betteror?

via TweetDeck

Ustream is pimping its top live animal webcam feeds. This is why the internet was invented. http://arseh.at/8x1

Wed plan: Washing while researching; errands then lunch, Enmore/Newtown; bunches of writing, probably; evening TBA, but quiet, probably.

@dain_ger I think I’m nostalgic for the first half of this tweet.

@joshrowe Mind you, just because someone’s locks are shoddy doesn’t give someone else the right to enter. That’s Great Geek Myth #4.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshrowe

@joshrowe But yes, a few unused soundbites from me made the point that the telcos “protect” your account with nothing but security theatre.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshrowe

@joshrowe “I don’t think the industry has caught up to the reality of how easy it is to get hold of someone’s information,” I said. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to joshrowe

Does 2009 count as nostalgia yet? If you think so, this is for you. You’re welcome. http://youtu.be/xXorPRK4…

If you missed the excitement of me talking to @abc730 from under a bridge yesterday, it’s at http://arseh.at/8wt Yes, I’m a troll.
