Fading. For various reasons. Thud.

@NickHodgeMSFT @jasonlangenauer “Hate”? That’s a little strong. This is just neutral observation of extreme upfuckedness and stupidity.

via TweetDeck

RT @jasonlangenauer: Oh. I’ve written a language that has significant whitespace. Does that make me satan? [Yes, as do other acts.]

via TweetDeck

Christopher Pyne?

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile, back at the Perl… This is Truth. xkcd.com/224/ As is this. arseh.at/nhh HT @unixbigot

via TweetDeck

Coughing. And spluttering.

via TweetDeck

Jesus fuck! The glass on the left has vodka. The glass on the right has water. DO NOT HAVE A BIG REFRESHING MOUTHFUL CARELESSLY!

via TweetDeck

@fat_asian Look, I can’t do all your research for you… but it’s not difficult to discover.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

Of course Perl takes forever to install, @BeauGiles, it’s undiluted Nectar of the Gods. As source code.

via TweetDeck

You’re quite right. Especially given people’s thingo-detectors failed them.

via TweetDeck

So you folks tweeting from the UK, a “pound shop” is a brothel, right?

via TweetDeck

RT @greymatter78: @SoYoureJayce and you can’t getting any spacey-er than following Sagan’s footsteps. [Espesh if you SMOKE AS MUCH DOPE!]

via TweetDeck

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: Furries ruin everything. [I’ve added punctuation to make you look respectable.]

via TweetDeck

@fat_asian I am near Wentworth Falls tonight. Canberra tomorrow night. Somewhere in Sydney tomorrow night, depending on offers.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

Good advice which I may just follow, @atirere @BundyB @alexkidman @racingjo. Also, predictable.

via TweetDeck

RT @HappySinger: Home to the smell of @purplefae’s mung beans. [Is that a euiphemism?]

via TweetDeck

Erm, I’m in the middle of a eucalypt scrubland, @Wyld, I cant just call Dial-a-Watermelon you know!

via TweetDeck

Running out of things to pour vodka into.

via TweetDeck

RT @chriskkenny: I want a carbon neutral iPhone. [Oh FFS don’t tell people how much damage their gadgetry causes! They’d implode.]

via TweetDeck

@chriskkenny But surely the iPhone is more your latte-making device?

via TweetDeck in reply to chriskkenny

RT @chriskkenny: I hope the new iPhone includes an espresso machine. [See? That’s humanity right there. And people say he’s a Fascist…]

via TweetDeck

@zuzu Thanks. Sounds like you’ve got plenty on your plate at the moment though. Good luck with all that!

via TweetDeck in reply to zuzu

@Jester_Jeff I suspect we can come to some accommodation regarding the apples. I’ll have my people talk to your people.

via TweetDeck in reply to Jester_Jeff

So, there really are people so stupid and bling-addled that they talk about what features might be in the next iPhone? Fuckin’ losers.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Ah, but these are the… um… special Canberra apples. @Jester_Jeff knows all about them.

via TweetDeck

@dolldolldoll Good God! You mean OS X doesn’t have mutt installed already? What sort of half-arsed operating system is this?

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@Jester_Jeff Apples could well be interesting, yes. That’s what got Turing in the end, too.

via TweetDeck in reply to Jester_Jeff

@dolldolldoll Interesting suggestion, but I won’t install anything much new until I get these backups sorted! ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@dolldolldoll Oh I’ve built all sorts of sysadmin processes out of rsync over the years. Always wondered why it isn’t more widely known.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

RT: “Patch Monday” podcast: “SOPA: war on the internet continues” with @declanm @BernardKeane arseh.at/nei

via TweetDeck

@dolldolldoll Yeah, you just convinced me. I just stopped the Finder copy, now running my good friend rsync.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@dolldolldoll Exactly. This is the old Time Machine backup from my now-dead machine, but I want to keep it for archival porpoises.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@dolldolldoll Yeah I’m wishing I’d used rsync now, but I feared getting some of the Time Machine linkage upfucked. Tempted to re-start.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@en_gy I still don’t understand. What is “Xtube”?

via TweetDeck

Exactly. “What I want from a restaurant website.” arseh.at/nh5 HT @mrtiedt

via TweetDeck

@obrijo Heh! Canberra has a slow night on Mondays?

via TweetDeck in reply to obrijo

I don’t know what that means. Obviously. Someone just told me it would be funny.

via TweetDeck

RT @Helishingly: if you type Alan Jones toilet incident in google you get 55,000 results [Yeah? Try the same search on Xtube.]

via TweetDeck

I’m tethered to this spot by 240V cables, and there’s still 3 hours to run on this file copying, so I’m going to take it out on you.

via TweetDeck

@grantshow Hello. I need to know that you were successfully reblimped and that there has been some fine blimping episodes.

via TweetDeck in reply to grantshow

BTW, I’m in Canberra tomorrow afternoon / evening and no-one seems to have offered hospitality yet. What’s wrong with you people?

via TweetDeck

“Overdone: Why are restaurant websites so horrifically bad?” arseh.at/nh4 HT @leslienassar

via TweetDeck

RT @DavidFeng: Excellent civilized Shanghai Chinglish @sdweathers @lonniehodge @GA Yu post.ly/3xtuI [Agreed.]

via TweetDeck

Speaking of MAD SKILLZ, remember this classic? arseh.at/70d

via TweetDeck

RT @vealmince: *rolls eyes* Clearly you don’t understand cutting-edge UX. [Oh there’s cutting involved, trust me!}

via TweetDeck

“MAD SKILLZ”, @jasonlangenauer? These Flash designers all used to be 14yo suburban whiteboy wannabe hip hop DJs in 1991, did they?

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: What the hell kind of restaurants do you eat at? [Restaurants where other people are paying.]

via TweetDeck

Why do restaurant websites insist limiting my view of their information to a tiny little scrolling mini-sphincter?

via TweetDeck

RT @Xavier_Ho: Just landed. Hello Sydney. [This town is really going to the dogs…]

via TweetDeck

@servantofchaos I suspect the Toaster is more a self-soiling appliance. Sort of like an electric heated reverse-colostomy.

via TweetDeck in reply to servantofchaos

I’m already going to one event with “cloud” in the title this week, @snagy. Two would trigger the urge to shoot myself in the face.

via TweetDeck

@danielstone Ah, you imagine ADF wants to discuss policy, rather than just getting what they ask for or shafting the minister? How sweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to danielstone

Hey Kids, want to be a Toaster ? Try this Fantastic and Worthwhile Jobâ„¢! arseh.at/ngs HT @servantofchaos

via TweetDeck

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: But it has prize draws & everything! [Yeah, a prize for anyone with anything new to say about Teh Effing Cloudz.]

via TweetDeck

“Cloud 2.0”? Oh FFS! IDCs little 10-city roadshow wins the biscuit for inane branding. arseh.at/ngn

via TweetDeck

@drueyjay I actually don’t mind. I usually leave things in OS-default configuration anyway. Things tend to be more stable that way.

via TweetDeck in reply to drueyjay

Being unfairly stereotyped and stigmatised.

via TweetDeck

Gosh, my article about the insulin pump hack published 21 Oct is still #4 most-read at CSO. arseh.at/ng0

via TweetDeck

The rosellas are being quite unruly today.

via TweetDeck

@dananimal Oh I’m happy to let Finder do its thing, within its quirks. Dealing with new applications requires Thinking.

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@dolldolldoll A Time Machine backup was one of the directories on that disc, yes. But hey, I copy in two batches. No drama.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

@dolldolldoll Ah nope, that’s not the task. I’m just shuffling things amongst discs to make things clearer.

via TweetDeck in reply to dolldolldoll

OS X Lion refuses to copy from one HDD to another because “selection contains both backup and non-backup items”. FFS they’re just files.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin TweetDeck seems to have a bug counting characters when not-shortening not-quite-URL domain strings.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@neerav I’m thinking I should arrange my national visits media accreditation well in advance. Would you advise that?

via TweetDeck in reply to neerav

“Barack Obama’s security circus arrives in Oz: In Pictures” by @neerav arseh.at/nft

via TweetDeck

I am to please, @R_Chirgwin @crazyjane13, I aim to please. And also disturb.

via TweetDeck

Concepts that deserve to be in a sentence. Wilson Tuckey. Sophie Mirabella. Masturbation. There. I’ve said it.

via TweetDeck

If you are free of satire, you are free of life. And also, possibly, kidney failure.

via TweetDeck

Why do people position “unelected” as a term of denigration? FFS, look at those who ARE elected! Is THAT your measure of quality?

via TweetDeck

jayrosen_nyu I have a new essay out in Australia. It says that the key to understanding the Murdoch empire is its culture of denial. j.mp/w3lmNG

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 1:41 PM, Nov 21st, 2011 via TweetDeck)

Also, the thing about codeine and vodka earlier? Satire, right? Satire.

via TweetDeck

FFS, people, if you only mention things that surprise you, then Twitter indicates that you have no memory whatsofuckingever! Kill yourself.

via TweetDeck

DID I SAY I WAS SURPRISED? DID I SAY I WAS SURPRISED ABOUT ANY SINGLE FUCKING THING THAT I SAID? MENTION IS NOT INDICATION OF SURPRISE!

via TweetDeck

We all yearn for Wilson Tuckey. It’s as much as I can to to keep my flies closed as it is.

via TweetDeck

Laughing at something that was intended as a joke but is probably true.

via TweetDeck

Hasn’t Sophie Mirabella MP chosen her bestest evah most attractivest photos for her website? arseh.at/nfe

RT: “Patch Monday” podcast: “SOPA: war on the internet continues” with @declanm @BernardKeane arseh.at/nei

via TweetDeck

Oh fuck me dead! Latest media release from Prime Minister is basically MOAR PR SPIN TO TELL PUBLIC WHAT WE DO IS SCIENTIFICALIST!

via TweetDeck

@bacco007 I think it indicates an attitude about attention to detail. Do Twitter, or don’t. I care not. But if you do it, bloody well do it.

via TweetDeck in reply to bacco007

@neerav And if they have split tweets between the three services, then @AusDefenceForce should’ve said that as a final tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to neerav

Bah, @neerav! If a major government dept can’t be arsed telling us what they’re doing or close down neatly, fuck ‘em. /cc @AusDefenceForce

via TweetDeck

Solving back pain with vodka and codeine. Well, no. Obviously not. That would be irresponsible. So that’s satire, right?

via TweetDeck

I see a certain infosec vendor has sent details of yet another “poll” with N so low on individual countries as to be meaningless. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Just remember, @NewtonMark, there ain’t much of an upgrade from water balloons to napalm.

via TweetDeck

@philipargy Please, Sir, you are an adult. Don’t add “tw” to things just because it’s about or happen via Twitter. Or I will cry.

via TweetDeck in reply to philipargy

Even if @AusDefenceForce just told us about interesting things already published. But to simply… die? Bah!

via TweetDeck

I don’t think so, @lukehopewell. Defence simply forgets that it’s not a SEKRIT empire unto itself. Secrecy as an excuse to cover up.

via TweetDeck

Wow. @AusDefenceForce last tweeted on 21 April. Once. And before that on 15 March. TWITTER SUCCESS IS OURS!

via TweetDeck

I’m just wondering, what sort of weapons load is your aircraft capable of, @NewtonMark? I ask out of, um, completely academic interest.

via TweetDeck

michaelneale @stilgherrian did they clarify that it was speed of sound in air, not in, say, a vat of elephant semen? as that would mess with the numbers.

via Twitter for Mac (retweeted on 12:07 PM, Nov 21st, 2011 via TweetDeck)

Hypersonic weapon travels 5x speed of sound, says Daily Mail. Of course. That’s the definition of hypersonic. Twats. arseh.at/nf2

“SOPA breaks DNSSEC, and won’t work anyway: Sandia National Labs”, writes @R_Chirgwin arseh.at/nev Yeah, what he said.

@pseudomorph That’s the problem with a weekly podcast, I know. There’s one every goddam bloody week!

“Ducks don’t have sphincters,” @Nicholosophy? How does that even work? That’d make “Fuck a duck!” an exercise in… um, should I stop?

So yesterday’s duck laksa lunch has met last night’s overly-salted chicken and suspect salad to… um, no, some things won’t be described.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. A long one, but an interesting one, talking about and the War on the Internet.

via TweetDeck

Recording links for “Patch Monday” podcast. Trying to sound light and bright, on a Monday morning, and probably failing.

Mon plan: File “Patch Monday” podcast; coordinate client webby work; invoicing; various comms catch-ups; early night.
