@bbedit Well yes, but you make your own choices about your consumptions of psychotropics. ;)

@HappySinger Oh thank you. Well, I hope we see similar interest in my soon-to-be-announced cuntspiking.

via TweetDeck in reply to HappySinger

@ret56fe It’s 600 lines of PHP. It needs about as much optimisation a a nativity play. No, I don’t know what that means either.

via TweetDeck in reply to ret56fe

@cocaine_ I believe I have been using BBEdit since version 1… which is distressing.

via TweetDeck in reply to PlRATES

@HappySinger Oh don’t listen to what stupid old faggot has to say!

via TweetDeck in reply to HappySinger

Well that’s quite enough programmifying for today. I’ve broken the back of it, only a bit of tidying tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

@en_gy @stufromoz @jasonlangenauer I have a blog post coming soon, “The art and science of ”.

via TweetDeck

Whenever I see “$PHP_SELF” I think of dildos. True. Well, ish.

via TweetDeck

@cocaine_ I’ll write my own code, thank you very much. I’m not leaving it to no machine.

via TweetDeck in reply to PlRATES

@cocaine_ Dreamweaver? What the fuck for? No, I am using my dear old friend BBEdit.

via TweetDeck

If at first you don’t succeed, MOAR DIVS!

via TweetDeck

@craigspry I’ve always found willful ignorance to be deeply unsettling.

via TweetDeck in reply to craigspry

@grantshow It’s lovely, yes. “Orthogonal is such a woody word.”

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

Fair point. Most people don’t realise how farking complicated this stuff is.

via TweetDeck

The problem with only working with code occasionally is that you have to keep looking up everything you can’t quite remember. Slow.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer @expectproblems Fortunately I’ve never used Java, though I learned enough to tutor a friend through his IT course.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Are you sure? I thought you treated them with toxic chemicals and scraped their bottoms.

via TweetDeck

I think programmers accumulate programming languages like ships accumulate barnacles, @jasonlangenauer. And the fix is the same.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Oh how could I forget JavaScript? Oh, and also sed and awk, kinda. But I haven’t written anything serious / big in ages.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Oh some of them weren’t what I was taught, but I did language design / compiler construction. For my sins. And Linguistics.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Assembler for CDC Cyber 173 mainframe, DEC Vax-11, Z80, Motorola 6502, 68000… um, what was the systems language of Vaxen?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer BASIC, Pascal, FORTRAN, COBOL, PL/I, SNOBOL, Lisp, Forth, LaTeX, Perl, PHP, PostScript, bash, AppleScript…

via TweetDeck

@grantshow Ah yes, another sacrifice to the Altar of Orthogonality! Beware, I did a shitload on language design. I will parse your arse!

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

Oh. Of curse something sensible like uc() doesn’t work. strtoupper() my arse. Productivity now at 20% of what it should be.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer The code I was taught to write? Or the code I am working on tonight? This is PHP. Then was… many things. Shall I list

via TweetDeck

Thanks be to all the gods, I was brought up to write neat, readable code. I first wrote this in 2005, it says here. I still understand it.

via TweetDeck

@mbachelard It kinda works, the obscure-language reference, but I’d have chosen a different language? Which one? A religious question!

via TweetDeck in reply to mbachelard

@mbachelard Well, perhaps not easy. Just looked at this code properly for the first time in 2.5 years. It’s more complex than I remembered.

via TweetDeck in reply to mbachelard

I think I’ll knock off this little bit of programming before calling it a night.

via TweetDeck

@GT_DJ Hah! fate works the way it always does. A shame we’ll not meet. But yes, do send the guide!

via TweetDeck in reply to GT_DJ

@grantshow Wow that’s at least three references today alone! Were there more? I faded out a bit mid-way.

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

@GT_DJ It looks like I’ll be in LA for the night of Sat 22 Oct. Does that town have, like, a pub or something?

via TweetDeck

RT @johnthelutheran: I shouldn’t worry. They’re probably already set up to block at “Stilgherrian”. [True, that. If they have any sense.]

via TweetDeck

I wonder, if I use my Twitter bio line as my email signature, will arsehat corporate mail filters block me on the word “whore”?

via TweetDeck

@piawaugh Catching up would indeed be good, ‘cos I haven’t managed to do Canberra again yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@piawaugh And I mean “A @piawaugh Joint” like “A Spike Lee Joint”, a kind of place. arseh.at/l6a

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@piawaugh I’m just checking my schedule and… it should be possible. I’ll book a spot now, can always cancel out if needed.

via TweetDeck in reply to piawaugh

@WarWraith I had the last metronidazole yesterday. In theory drinking begins tomorrow. But I may have to resume, abscess is slow to clear.

via TweetDeck in reply to WarWraith

@jasonlangenauer @en_gy I think I shall do the Disappointed Mongoose.

via TweetDeck

Live “Public Sphere” consultation on Digital Culture in Sydney, 6 October. A @piawaugh Joint. arseh.at/l69

via TweetDeck

I’d rather not ask my liver, @GeordieGuy. It’s still trying to comprehend this world without alcohol.

via TweetDeck

One bit of my brain thinks I just finished lunch. Another bit, the bit that understands clocks, disagrees. I should consult other organs.

via TweetDeck

As I linked in arseh.at/l0b at CSO, @DanielOCnr @NewtonMark @riskybusiness, it’s called statistics laundering. arseh.at/886

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @riskybusiness Hey, the Attorney-General is already high on the “cybercrime bigger than drugs” trope. arseh.at/l64

via TweetDeck

@riskybusiness Indeed, and worth doing. Good piece, Sir! Whereas I’m more the Alan Jones of infosec. No wait.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

Or, in this instance, ankles.

via TweetDeck

That tweet would’ve worked better if I’d made a time travel / Back to the Future / short person joke. I would’ve been worth the kneecaps.

via TweetDeck

Oh, it’s just @riskybusiness catching up with last week. ;) arseh.at/l62 @BernardKeane was there a day earlier. arseh.at/l63

via Twitter Web Client

Ooh! I just felt a strange disturbance in The Force.

via TweetDeck

@engochick There is some excellent material in “Harry & Paul”, such as that, but also some repetitive catchphrase stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to engochick

Oh dear, Google. “Win an iPhone”, I ask. “About 680,000,000 results” is your reply. That’s sad. /cc @engochick

via TweetDeck

But… but… @engochick? I thought you were shitting iPhone’s from every orifice, like everyone else? youtu.be/s_-VvLMdF7g

via TweetDeck

Laughing at arsehats who think that commenting on a month-old blog post is a sensible way to get technical support.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear! Naughty NBN Co, not reporting your KPIs to the parliamentary committee on time. Slap! arseh.at/l5x

via TweetDeck

RT @grantshow: I’ll give you a reference. [Erm, yes, but what would it say?]

via TweetDeck

LinkedIn has determined that I might like to be sales director at ninemsn. I’m not sure they’d agree, as it happens.

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: Minor client webby work; routine comms that can’t wait; write for someone, somewhere, probably; conquer pain and fatigue [how?]

via TweetDeck

My day is getting off to a very slow, painful and significantly unproductive start.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I’m on rather a lot of medication as it is so I’ve been trying to avoid sleeping pills.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Well at least my shoulder is slowly improving, if not my insomnia. It’s a start.

via TweetDeck

Wednesday. I am not impressed.
