Sometimes I wonder how the IT industry can even work.

I have electricity and internets.

I think I shall now board QF449 and head to Melbourne. I have no phone battery left to tweet with. You’ll just have to cope somehow.

@jonstribling I suppose you would be biased as an employee, but I’ll let the client know.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonstribling

A client asks: Is Sensis any good as a Google Adwords reseller? Is there someone else we as a small business should consider?

via TweetDeck

During that short battery-induced hiatus, I found my way to Sydney Airport.

@jonoabroad I am at lunch. Tanstaafl. The price of lunch is buzzwords.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

I love it when the tech guy says something his MD just said for marketing purposes is not true.

via TweetDeck

I am in Buzzword Heaven.

At Bilson’s, about to be fed courtesy of NetApp. Such a burden.

via TweetDeck

Oh, that could have been a haiku @nzlemming, yes. The moment has passed.

via TweetDeck

Broken bus is broken. The driver laughs.

RT @marclehmann Infographics vs. shockgraphics > my thoughts. http://bit.ly/shockgraph… [Agree 100%. Numbers must have context.]

@ssharwood It’s hard to be certain about these things, but the train did seem to lack a Bruce Willis.

via TweetDeck in reply to ssharwood

4yo girl just asks middle-aged female train passenger, a stranger: “Are you going to see dead people today?”

via TweetDeck

Changing trains at Strathfield.

@MikeStuchbery “They’ll have Tyrion Lannister on them”? What’s Tyrion Lannister? Some sort of fungal disease?

via TweetDeck in reply to Mike__Stuchbery

Me at @technologyspec: “The keyboard is dead”, so will the PC follow? http://arseh.at/9c4

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin AFAIK wget won’t re-write query-based URLs into something that’ll work when browsed locally as static HTML.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @joshgnosis: John Howard, George Pell, Keith Windschuttle and Peter Costello cited in Norway terrorist’s manifesto http://bit.ly/pYyAAX

via TweetDeck

RT @jdub: Front-loading washing machines are weird. [I know. Have you ever watched “Time Tunnel”?]

via TweetDeck

The test for journalists seems to have been a popular suggestion. I like that so many of you immediately thought of ducks.

via TweetDeck

That’s two suggestions for Site Sucker for my website archiving task. http://www.sitesucker.us Thanks, @norton_tim @jonkudelka

via TweetDeck

I shouldn’t pick on Fairfax. They are not acting alone. Maybe there should be some kind of test for journalists. Like they had for witches.

via TweetDeck

FFS! Can we get a few people to kick every Fairfax journalist in the head chanting “Correlation is not causation”! until they understand?

via TweetDeck

RT @peterjblack: don allan asks “Is Murdoch being hacked to death unfairly?” http://j.mp/nfpMdU [Murdoch has been HACKED TO DEATH??!??!?!]

via TweetDeck

Dear Webby Folks, years ago I’d use w3mir to create a static archive on CD of a dynamic website. What would one use these days?

via TweetDeck

@jojoeffe I think you’re over-thinking it. WAY over-thinking it. A one significant figure guesstimate is just fine to make the point.

via TweetDeck in reply to jojoeffe

OH, primary school teacher to kid: “I’m only one year older, but don’t forget your father uses a lot of makeup and I don’t.”

Spotted at Wentworth Falls station: 10yo boy wearing a houndstooth trilby with lime green Crocs.

Waiting for the taxi, there’s bound to be one soon http://post.ly/2dA8A

@hortovanyi No, arseh.at is not a critique of individual links. But perhaps of the whole world? [shrugs] It amuses me…

via TweetDeck in reply to hortovanyi

@bigjsl Oh these IT vendors! I’d be happy with a hole-in-the-wall noodle bar but they INSIST on fine dining. What am I to do? ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to bigjsl

CSO: “Apple patches iOS flaw that threatens encrypted traffic”, writes @LiamT http://arseh.at/9bx

via TweetDeck

@hortovanyi I dunno about what’s “with” it, but I’ve been using @thepatus’ arseh.at URL shortener for months. There is no deeper meaning.

via TweetDeck in reply to hortovanyi

@a7ndrew @ben_hr Erm, I didn’t say it was “just” maths. But it’s probably futile to seek rich explanations in single tweets.

via TweetDeck

I’m in Melbourne to cover IBM’s Pulse 2011 event Wed-Thu for @zdnetaustralia should anyone care. http://arseh.at/99q

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: 0836 train to Sydney; errands Enmore/Newtown; haircut; 1200 NetApp lunch Bilson’s; 1630 QF449 SYD-MEL; dinner Movida; collapse.

via TweetDeck

@a7ndrew @ben_hr “Fairly strong assumption”? What, linear distribution of rollout or maybe acceleration after initial settling in?

via TweetDeck

Good comments coming in on my “Politics of NBN pricing: comparing potatoes and pomegranates”. Mostly. http://arseh.at/9aw

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge I am pleased to you are, as usual, assisting the smooth running of the Universe.

@franksting @ben_hr Quality of copper can make a huge difference to ADSL speeds. Or being on the exchange boundary.

Sorting. Trashing. Packing.
