Well, that’s a mix of weird, almost-amusing, insulting, accurate and mildly disturbing answers so far. I won’t ask that again!

Is there a specific word for the position you have to adopt when cutting your own toenails?

via TweetDeck

@mogams Oh, do I get the feeling you are no longer in Sydney?

via TweetDeck in reply to mogams

@FixedR6 Au contraire, Canberra justifies all manner of crimes.

via TweetDeck

Why am I in Canberra? eCrime Symposium starts tomorrow. arseh.at/ltm

via TweetDeck

@Lyons_Ben I’m in Canberra several times a year these days. It is pleasant enough.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lyons_Ben

I do so recommend “86th Birthday Rage [very long] [first post] [hello!]” arseh.at/m2t HT @RealNickHodge

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Dunedin. Right. You’re really trying to get me moist now, eh?

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

OH: “I wouldn’t call myself bossy, but it was pretty clear he wasn’t going to tell people what they needed to do.”

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark Keating seems annoyed … [Just end the tweet there. Always true.]

via TweetDeck

In honour of the hotel’s faded 1970s ambience, I’m drinking Campari and soda.

via TweetDeck

“Air Marshalls Conference Dinner”? Now that’s the one to gatecrash.

via TweetDeck

RT @wuthy Better to starve and die a lonely hungry death. [True. So very true.]

via TweetDeck

Can I be arsed going downstairs in search of food?

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer Your comment was flagged as spam, for some reason. Feel free to make up your own explanation.

via TweetDeck

Checked in. Irritated with ill-provisioned hotel broadband, firing up my own.

via TweetDeck

DJ664 only 30% full, maybe. Acceptable RI.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Long. Island. Iced. Tea. Full. Shots.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@COScivmilcoe But.. but… it says “artisan”. I must object!

via TweetDeck in reply to COS_ACMC

@COScivmilcoe I’d much rather be sitting in The Rocks than flying to Canberra!

via TweetDeck in reply to COS_ACMC

So, Strandbags, on Saturday your website said you’d received the “email” (really an online form), but in fact this was not true…

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… that seems to be clear now. Onto the South Dowling St sector, no sign of alien invasion. Yet.

via TweetDeck

Um, tunnels are the other way up, but southbound traffic is still rooted.

via TweetDeck

Eastern Distributor under Cross City Tunnel has an “incident”. Traffic upfuckage of the big upfucked kind.

via TweetDeck

@ma_ttie I fly whoever those what is paying pay to fly me. Today it is Virgin.

via TweetDeck in reply to ma_ttie

Oh scroll back, fools!

via TweetDeck

Mobile. Cab. Airport. Canberra. All that.

via TweetDeck

Mr @BernardKeane explains why Access Economics is a crock. arseh.at/m3i

via TweetDeck

I click on the link in @VirginAustralia’s email to get a single-entry to their lounge, and get a 404. I am filled with confidence.

via TweetDeck

@RatbagsDotCom Ah, I bought “Nation Review” back in the day. For a time in the ’80s, I got to chat with Mungo off-record every morning. Joy.

via TweetDeck in reply to RatbagsDotCom

Indeed, Mungo Wentworth MacCallum is a bit EKSTRA SPESHUL today.

via TweetDeck

RT @AgnessMack A little bit of Mungo never hurt anyone bit.ly/spvnHb [It’s pleasures like this etc…]

via TweetDeck

Look, if this keeps up I’m just bloody well going to Canberra.

via TweetDeck

Swearing isn’t a descent, @lukehopewell, it’s an escalation. A worthy and much-needed escalation.

via TweetDeck

Oh. This power outlet isn’t actually delivering, y’know, power.

via TweetDeck

@gths My “bespoke prescription lenses” don’t come with precision stepper motors and online tech support either.

via TweetDeck in reply to gths

RT @mpesce: How many Right-Wing Dalek accounts are there? [Erm, could there be a left-wing Dalek?]

via TweetDeck

RT @rossdawson: Agree. you might want to have a look at @sneakingduck bit.ly/mZJnvB - more reasonable tho still room to improve imo

via TweetDeck

To clarify, it’s ~$300 for frames, ~$600 for multifocal lenses… but still, a fucking robot just churns out polished plastic.

via TweetDeck

@darrenpauli Hah! I’ve got one word to say to you: “Britian”. ;) [Or is that too cruel?]

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenpauli

Digital camera with 10x optical zoom, 12 megapixels etc, under $300. Spectacle frames and fixed lenses, $900. Scam, anyone?

via TweetDeck

@Jester_Jeff Oh thanks. I doubt I’ll have time to go to MilCIS anyway, but defence vendors do have rather deep hospitality budgets! ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to Jester_Jeff

RT @peterjblack: “Court finds $29.99 unlimited TPG deal misleading” arseh.at/m3a [Yet ISPs continue with this bullshit.]

via TweetDeck

OTOH, @expectproblems, e.g. Toshiba Semiconductor (Thailand) Co Ltd is also in Bangkadi Industrial Park, Pathumtani. arseh.at/m39

via TweetDeck

@jkerrison Yes, it’s been ages since we’ve shared a cleansing ale. Looking forward to it.

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

@YogaReach Just one beer, cost to pub about $0.25, in exchange for personalised pimpage seems a poor exchange.

via TweetDeck in reply to YogaReach

dd @GreenJ It’s OK, your “Queensland holiday” SEKRIT is safe…

via TweetDeck

The article doesn’t mention SSDs, @expectproblems, but I’m thinking they’d have rather different manufacturing plants? Do I actually care?

via TweetDeck

Thailand makes 25% of the world’s hard drives. So, floods and… you know… prices up 180% arseh.at/m36 HT @seamus

via TweetDeck

So, has anyone ever seen @KimKardashian and @GreenJ at the same time? Spooky, right?

via TweetDeck

My @crikey_news email has an advert for some bloke called @JohnBirmingham and a “book”. Goodness me.

via TweetDeck

Surely the very fact that I even USE Twitter should get me free everything, right @RealNickHodge?

via TweetDeck

Thanks for maintaining my faith in humanity, @natbradford @logichappens @dugandjo @R_Chirgwin @LiamPomfret @1159 @grantshow and all.

via TweetDeck

Twitter is full of idiots.

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS, @RealNickHodge @dobes! “Measured.” Not “counted”. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

OK, time to go get my eyes measured…

via TweetDeck

@ozdj I flag it gullibility ‘cos the deal you get with a bank has nothing to do with how fancy their branch decor is. /cc @RealNickHodge

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack Hah! They have the lawyer covered: David Stewart from Wrays. Also @jkerrison. Whoever he is. One more TBA.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

Just confirmed I’m speaking at a @media140 mini-event on “Digital Anonymity” in Sydney on the evening of 24 Nov. arseh.at/m2x

via TweetDeck

@bhaverty Oh, I think the shorter hashtag does the job… meaning was conveyed. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to bhaverty

@ozdj @RealNickHodge I’m not convinced banks and gadget shops are comparable. Are people really so gullible?

via TweetDeck

Oh. Why didn’t anyone tell me about MilCIS in Canberra, also starting tomorrow? Well, tell me sooner. arseh.at/m2w

via TweetDeck

RT @snerdish: I thought you used US currency to buy nylons on the black market? [Possibly the world has moved on since 1944. A little.]

via TweetDeck

Trying to pass off US currency in exchange for something of value, i.e. a coffee. Failing. Hotel staff are too canny for that.

via TweetDeck

@ddowza It all comes back to focus, though. That focus could still emerge, but I don’t see how. Ah well, Monday beckons…

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

Indeed, @RealNickHodge, banks like Apple stores. But if the bank was truly “high-tech”, I’D NEVER NEED TO VISIT A BRANCH EVER! /cc @NAB

via TweetDeck

Why does @NAB imagine that pissing away cash on a “high-tech” theme park branch in Melbourne would attract me? arseh.at/m2s

via TweetDeck

@ddowza “Loss of apathy” seems a bit ill-focused though. I’m not seeing a coherent message, just a scattergun of whinge.

via TweetDeck in reply to ddowza

New blog post: “Wankitecture Sydney: why bother?” arseh.at/m2q

via TweetDeck

New “Patch Monday” podcast: “Bell Labs’ high-bandwidth future” with chief scientist Alice White. arseh.at/m2p

via TweetDeck

It struck me as odd to be talking “succeed and endure” when it’s not even at the 60-day mark yet, @ddowza. Such little sense of history.

via TweetDeck

Here’s one, @ddowza. “Why does succeed and endure where previous movements failed?” arseh.at/m2m

via TweetDeck

Bemused by articles proclaiming the “Occupy” thing a “success where others have failed”. What, exactly, has been changed? Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Maybe there could be some sort of auction website where people could bid… oh wait.

via TweetDeck

I’m fairly sure I don’t yet have a dinner engagement for Canberra tonight either. So that’s more or less a warning.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Planning; research; 1330 eye examination; more planning; more research; 1805 DJ664 SYD-CBR.

Mudday. Right.
