And I think the Friday sloth before the Saturday off-grid starts now. Ciao.

via TweetDeck

Decision made. Tonight: sloth. Saturday: Mosty off-grid. Sunday work: one article, one podcast.

Finally at my Camperdown hidey-hole, deciding the shape of the weekend. I must get some rest, but there’s also work to be done.

“Yet mae,” she just called her boyfriend. Um ah!

@jillhill99 I once tried to report a broken security on some equipment hatch under Central. No-one seemed to be terribly interested.

OH: “Well, it’s Sydney. That’s all anyone eats. Thai Thai Thai Thai Thai Thai Thai Thai.”

I know the person you’re talking to is a long, long way away, but… YOU HAVE A TELEPHONE THERE IS NO NEED TO SHOUT!

You’ll be pleased to know that the young woman sitting next to me is earning $17.20 an hour, but it’s not selling.

@talopine As long as you were singing it is all OK.

Don’t bother telling me what’s new with Facebook unless it begins “Sunk, all hands lost.”

@nphair I’ve never said there’s no cyber threat. Far from it. But I’m getting cranky about the bullshitery. And gullibility.

via TweetDeck in reply to nphair

@darrenpauli @trib @BernardKeane As traditional threats decline, funding must be maintained. Or investors go to to Apple not Lockheed? ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenpauli

Thank you, @trib.@BernardKeane has framed this as a broad “fear the internets”, I’m seeing a broad “politicians fall for bullshit” theme.

via TweetDeck

RT @JuliusFlywheel Spin “Cyber Security Theatre” as Arts Funding? [Well that’d certainly see the funding cut, sure.]

via TweetDeck

@oberonsghost I would love me a G&T, m’dear, but… you know… Sigh.

All planned achievements for the day achieved, except the “TGIF” part. That shall now commence.

via TweetDeck

@smperris Be careful! The man behind me just started a sentence with “The problem with young people today…”

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@akent Yeah I figure the tongue was firmly etc. Cheers.

via TweetDeck in reply to akent

I don’t choose tools based on “hotness”, @akent. I have a workflow Delicious -> WordPress that works just fine, no need to change.

via TweetDeck

@paininthenet You’re not the first to suggest “Mister Stilgherrian” as a solution, but those class-based titles have always grated with me.

via TweetDeck in reply to paininthenet

OH: “What sort of phone have you lost?” “An iPhone with a smashed screen.” “Jeez, can you narrow it down a bit?”

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: Do websites have orifices? [They do when I’ve finished with them.]

via TweetDeck

@Wyane I note the Malaysian immigration card just had a free-text field, “Name”. That’s the way it should be done, IMHO.

via TweetDeck

@Wyane @Delicious I’m OK with “first name” and “last name”, ‘cos most people really are too stupid to get “given name” and “family name”.

via TweetDeck

“The last name field cannot be left blank”, @Delicious? Oh yes it had better be possible, or it’s broom handle time!

via TweetDeck

@The_Knuckle For some value of “attending”… /cc @LiamT

via TweetDeck in reply to The_Knuckle

Mobile, with improved shoulder, slightly: Train to Newtown; errand to Enmore Rd, King St; remainder TBA.

@athempel So… it appears that I’m not across the latest dwarf porn star badger-gassing news. I feel… not worried at all. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to athempel

Alas, @scooter_lass, badger-gassing is when folks get rid of badger “pests” by putting poison gas down their burrows.

via TweetDeck

@Saccaparami Nope. What’s now Medicare was very much a product of its time. It’s be written off as too “socialist” now. Bloody ideologues.

via TweetDeck in reply to Saccaparami

@trib Don’t YOU have a dwarf porn double? I thought everyone…

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

@sroc Ah oops. My misinterpretation. No argument there. I was thinking about the first half, provision of health services. Mea cupla.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

@Saccaparami Oh Hicks certainly didn’t get fair process. Assange, well, I dunno what diplomatic assistance he got, only seen PM’s rhetoric.

via TweetDeck in reply to Saccaparami

@sroc At the risk of being completely misinterpreted, the problem is that they’re remote and unskilled, not that they’re indigenous.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

Australian government cares so little about citizens that it funds one of the world’s best health systems. We’re 3rd longest-living people.

via TweetDeck

I agree with whoever tweeted this earlier. This IS the best headline so far today. arseh.at/l23

via TweetDeck

@Saccaparami Where did I say anything was “surprising”? :) You’re being a bit B&W, I think. Massive FOI changes, as just one example.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce @acidic I think the zombies are in Kuala Lumpur. The local bank guard had a standard zombie-shooting mil-grade semi-auto shotgun.

@awelder @chriskkenny Hey, I write for a living too. I spend half my day starting at a blank screen sweating. Or masturbating.

via TweetDeck

@alanjlee Oh whacko! I’m following you now so you can DM, but also my email and phone number are on my website.

via TweetDeck

I should clarify, @chriskkenny, I mean “Break a leg!” in the show-biz sense, not the ALP back-room sense. Still, while he’s there…

via TweetDeck

RT @chriskkenny: Happy to say my first guest on the new look Saturday Agenda tomorrow will be @AlboMP 8.30am [Break a leg!]

via TweetDeck

I have entered a special kind of hell: editing someone else’s table-layout HTML form code. In this case, it’s very special.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan, unordered: Client webby work; plan next few weeks, including Las Vegas trip; errand to Newtown/Enmore; change accommodation; TGIF.

@sylmobile No it only makes me a photojournalist if I took the photo. I was 10yo when this photo was taken.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

Oh cool. CSO has licensed the photo that I thought could illustrate today’s article. I’ll be live at 0730, I’m told.

Friedday, I’m a’fried.
