“If he does hear you saying that he’ll fuck you harder than Ron Jeremy and with less warmth.”

A: “Be there or be square!” B: “I can do both.”

Somebody please hose down @NewtonMark … /cc @SnarkyPlatypus

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Wondering what a literal nanny state would be like. [Suggest that’s a dream sequence in our sitcom. Remember that?]

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @R_Chirgwin Indeed, there’s all sorts of yummy critters up here. That could be an add-on product to the rentals.

via TweetDeck

To answer that other question, Knighthood.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I’m a sort-of fan of Freesound.org, having used them for various things in the past I should upload some stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin No problems. I just stuck the H4n by the dam for a minute. I’ll do a longer one some time and upload to a CC audio site.

via TweetDeck

RT @grantshow: Do you develop in .NET? We may have a referral for you… [To a very good psychiatrist, in fact.]

via TweetDeck

@lukehopewell It does indeed sound like a battle out there! I’ll do some more ambient recordings over the coming weeks.

via TweetDeck in reply to lukehopewell

That is One Fuck Of A Lot Of Frogs, @R_Chirgwin!

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “At night, quiet bushland not so quiet”, with audio. arseh.at/ogk WHAT ARE ALL THESE NOISES?

via TweetDeck

@QF1 Ah all this was explored last week… arseh.at/ogi

via TweetDeck in reply to QF1

@SnarkyPlatypus I suppose I should get my vodka from the next building so I can better prepare such a diagram.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@esseeeayeenn @Drag0nista I’m assuming the rimsky comes after a few brewskis. With a friend. But I dare not ponder further.

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @technologyspec: “Influence without Klout” and something about rectal temperatures arseh.at/odu

via TweetDeck

Twitter is not to be trusted.

via TweetDeck

Of course @mrjohnclarke has previously explored this excuse for a ship sinking. In 1991. youtu.be/3m5qxZm_JqM

via TweetDeck

Prince William is spending quite a bit of time being useful at the moment. Also, great excuse for sunken ship. arseh.at/ogf

via TweetDeck

Some things just need to be said out loud, @R_Chirgwin, and that is an important part of my role on your planet.

via TweetDeck

Skyrim still sounds wrong.

via TweetDeck

RT @CassPF: For no particular reason, this: youtu.be/y5PrM-Ex824 [Hastags removed ‘cos they’re now redundant.]

via TweetDeck

So, folks wanted Larry Page to sort out Google’s technical strategy, and now that he’s doing so they’re whinging that things are changing…

via TweetDeck

@RatbagsDotCom @R_Chirgwin If we’re comparing Bob Dylan to anyone of anything, might I suggest an asthmatic duck?

via TweetDeck in reply to RatbagsDotCom

Not that I can think of a recent example of suffering that. But it pays to issue a warning from time to time.

via TweetDeck

Mind you there should be a special prison for editors who remove rhythm, emphasis and juxtaposition, draining all interest from one’s prose.

via TweetDeck

You have arsehat commenters, @R_Chirgwin. Paired words is how we’ve created rhythm and emphasis for, oh, A THOUSAND FUCKING YEARS!

via TweetDeck

BernardKeane It must be destroyed. Every note. Every piece of improv. Every degree of cool. Extirpated from the canon. Who’s with us?!

I am now going to make my way to Central station and escape this madness. Kind of.

via TweetDeck

It’s true, @bernietb @peterhau @engochick, bacon chocolate bars. arseh.at/ofb I feel sick now.

via TweetDeck

I would much, much prefer illegal bacon, @engochick, and I suspect you would too.

via TweetDeck

I think I need to wrap all my afternoon tweets today into one big, indigestible bundle of bitterness.

via TweetDeck

@dananimal PS, better not put your business website on a URL because some website URLs have malware on them.

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

@dananimal WTF? Shouldn’t sell books as a PDF from a reputable shop because bad guys send naughty PDFs by email? Irrelevant, surely?

via TweetDeck in reply to dananimal

Yeah @mpesce @swearyanthony and the wheel is so 15,000 BC BUT WE STILL USE THEM! Fuck you and your imaginary hovercraft!

via TweetDeck

RT @brypie Your tips for great roast veggies please :) [Sounds a very poor exchange for my advice. “Here, have a potato…”]

via TweetDeck

Yay, @MargaretSimons! Walkleys were never about whether someone is nice. “Lots of shits have won Walkleys.” arseh.at/ofa

via TweetDeck

So, snark aside, who’s got a well-set-up site for flogging PDF files to the punters? Maybe epub too, I suppose.

via TweetDeck

RT @patrickgibsonau: I suppose it’s more enviro-friendly than giving lumps of coal. [Absolutely true. And I have no coal.]

via TweetDeck

If I’d had any sense I’d have put together an ebook of my own essays from the year. Maybe there’s still time to do that.

via TweetDeck

Heh. Remembering the week @crikey_news forced me, I say FORCED me, to work blue. arseh.at/7rl arseh.at/7ud

via TweetDeck

So Michael @arrington is yet another startup-deluded prick? Who knew? arseh.at/oex Refer arseh.at/3je HT @rod3000

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne Thank Christ for that! I’ve been wondering how to get rid of you for months. :P

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

Recommended: @BernardKeane’s ebook “The War on the Internet” arseh.at/oew [Yes, I write for Crikey, but they control me? Hah!]

via TweetDeck

@karalee_ Thanks. @AndeGregson has the full 2-hour audio now too, so that’ll be online when he gets a Round Tuit. /cc @jessradio

via TweetDeck in reply to karalee

Watching @lukehopewell tread dangerously, and kinda liking it.

via TweetDeck

In service of literacy, a brand new video: “Aromatherpy (sic)” youtu.be/SkMtGuNaK50

via TweetDeck

Maybe the abbreviation is for Cloud Authoritative Guru, eh @swearyanthony @RealNickHodge?

via TweetDeck

Look, it’s time for a Bloody Mary, I think. But where?

via TweetDeck

This is possibly a bit old-school, @GLComputing, but I reckon the adverbs would be “digitally” and “socially”. YSMV.

via TweetDeck

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: I remember the days when you had to use cassettes with computers. [Hah! I remember when you had to use acetate 78s.]

via TweetDeck

RT @wendy_hogan: Indeed, all true. ridiculous that my Klout score goes up when I post pics of my kids on Facebook! [Oh that’s just silly.]

via TweetDeck

Considering cocktail options. Don’t judge me.

via TweetDeck

@wendy_hogan @engochick @lukehopewell Influence measurement? Gosh, I just wrote about that! [smirks] arseh.at/odu

via TweetDeck

Just a brief note, folks. “Digital” and “social” are adjectives, not nouns. You have been warned.

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at @technologyspec: “Influence without Klout” and something about rectal temperatures arseh.at/odu

via TweetDeck

Just to be clear, @karalee_ @jessradio, Patch Monday is personal half-hour highlights. Full audio to come soon.

via TweetDeck

Not panelled out with me yet? Thursday is @zdnetaustralia’s “Bringing the Cloud Down to Earth” arseh.at/oej

via TweetDeck

Patch Monday podcast: “Is anonymity online your right?” with @jessradio @karalee_ @Wrays @jkerrison arseh.at/oei

via TweetDeck

Dear SEKRIT Gatecrasher, you have been sorted out.

via TweetDeck

Loose in the Sydney CBD.

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @RealNickHodge, I’m always happy to promulgate the term where required and where editors permit.

via TweetDeck

BTW, if anyone wants lunch in the Sydney CBD or nearby today I’m probably free and can bring my own thermometer.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Me at @technologyspec: “Influence without Klout” and something about rectal temperatures arseh.at/odu

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. Whew! I still feel shit after insomnia and all that. What else has been happening?

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Biological Obstacles would make for an awesomely disturbing It’s A Knockout! challenge.

via TweetDeck

Plodding through the audio editing and scripting, despite the biological obstacles. “Biological obstacles”? Great phrase, lousy experience.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; clear comms backlog; return to Blue Mountains (yes, still in Sydney); strangle Insomnia.

via TweetDeck

Oh. 0600 was not my plan. My plan is now ruined. Let me rearrange my plan now, you bastard clock.
