RT @nanopunk: […] black pearl eyes, red tatts and bunch of leather clad gimps as my posse. [Yeah, I think I went to that club once.]

via TweetDeck

RT @captain_beef: @cosmicjester Cliff Richard is on Graham Norton. [He should just get a bicycle or a scooter or something.]

via TweetDeck

Can you get long-cartridge 7.62mm NATO rounds in silver?

via TweetDeck

@nanopunk Hello. You’re dangerous. I shouldn’t talk to you without a chaperone and a fly whisk.

via TweetDeck in reply to PitcherJenna

Reaction time is a factor in this, so please pay attention.

via TweetDeck

RT @derekbarry: British company develops urinal gaming technology arseh.at/ow4 [DON’T CROSS THE STREAMS!]

via TweetDeck

You simply can’t trust the BBC in these matters, @GeordieGuy.

via TweetDeck

Surely that would be better as a colon rather than a semi-colon? Fucking incompetents.

This “television” thing. How do I pause it so I can pop to the bathroom and refill my drink? I think it’s broken.

via TweetDeck

You can send pandas by FedEx? Well fuck me!

via TweetDeck

@antoniodini I am truly intrigued by the tweets you decide to RT.

via TweetDeck

RT: New blog post: “Oh dear, it’s a caption competition, Fiona and Ben” feat @bengrubb and @aussexparty’s Fiona Patten.

via TweetDeck

I am not a “bomb pedant”, @benmoretti @SBSNews, the bomb was the subject of the goddam story! And it was The Wrong Bomb!

via TweetDeck

Ahem! @SBSNews, did not that archive footage just show a Lancaster dropping a Tallboy bomb, not a Blockbuster?

via TweetDeck

I am committing the deep, deep error of watching television news.

via TweetDeck

@HappySinger Thank you for your kind words. It was fun doing the Edict and I do hope to find a way for it to return more frequently.

via TweetDeck in reply to HappySinger

I was just visited by this kookaburra, and two others. flic.kr/p/aQGhrx

@jonoabroad @mpesce @Wyld Sadly there are no photos of me with the FN SCAR-H assault rifle, or “battle rifle” as they style it.

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad The muzzle flash in the Browning Nighthawk shot is better. flic.kr/p/axVDtq

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

Yes. When I want to learn about Islam, I ask Cardinal Pell. [nods] I also stick knitting needles deep into my ears for fun.

via TweetDeck

Oh, when did @@TweetMyCouncil happen, @henaredegan? WHY AM I TOLD NOTHING?

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Always someone or something else to blame…

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@dobes I thought letting people hear their own foolish comments was enough punishment. And it just wanted it to stop. Took forever to edit.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@dobes Actually, the real answer is “Because it’s so superbly edited and presented”. No? Oh.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@dobes I have no idea! There’s something about vox pops that compels people to keep listening. Also, train wrecks.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@michaelmeloni @bob_bain Yes, @bengrubb does indeed “have sunnies on his head indoors Alex Perry style”. Whatever that means.

via TweetDeck

@dobes Thank you. Bonus points for The Breeders perhaps partially make up for the endless bad jokes.

New blog post: “Oh dear, it’s a caption competition, Fiona and Ben” feat @bengrubb and @aussexparty’s Fiona Patten. arseh.at/ovv

via TweetDeck

@mukimu @lukehopewell @dobes BTW have you gentlemen been pointed to the podcast with party bits? arseh.at/otj

via TweetDeck

@lukehopewell @mukimu Oh dear. Mukimutel sounds like a heavy duty laxative.

via TweetDeck

@mukimu I would like to join your bnew telco. Will it be filtered? Will it have free iView? /cc @lukehopewell

via TweetDeck in reply to mukimu

@eCitizens I used to have burning questions, but then I was prescribed the ointment.

via TweetDeck in reply to eCitizens

@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly I’m fresh out of vodka so cannot subscribe to your newsletter, um, theory.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Debunking first-hand the vodka-soaked tampon thing. (“Gentlemen, you may want to skip down a paragraph.”) arseh.at/ovr

via TweetDeck

@tweettomnow I take your point. I was thinking more in terms of “the story so far” for those not up to speed on it.

via TweetDeck

@tweettomnow Make up his mind about which aspect of the story? Surely you’re not expecting some kind of simplistic good/bad thing?

via TweetDeck

Good summary and reality check of the Carrier IQ smartphone privacy dramas. arseh.at/ovo

via TweetDeck

No, there is no photo, @jonoabroad @avismulhall. I chose to experience it rather than turn it into work.

via TweetDeck

Yes, I really have just watched a kookaburra sitting in a gum tree with a snake in its beak. The cliché exists.

via TweetDeck

The small snake that @R_Chirgwin’s kitten Bones played with the other day has just been caught and taken away by a kookaburra.

via TweetDeck

@sroc Mayhaps. I guess in the context of a @zdnetaustralia item it’s assumed we’re not talking about low-tech retail operations.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

@benmoretti I’m not buying into that. The point in the spectrum of humans at which you label their mindstate an illness is highly political.

via TweetDeck in reply to morebento

@sroc I think you may have missed the key word “online” along the way somewhere…

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

@sroc Um, name, email address, delivery address, credit card number, buying history, data obtained from advertisers. Suggest you listen. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

When someone has “a unique perspective”, that is, everyone on the entire planet thinks different, that means they’re psychotic, right?

via TweetDeck

@sroc Indeed, to a first-order approximation, it’d be true to say “Facebook privacy? No-one gives a fuck.”

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

@sroc While the podcast conversation is primarily about retail, the syllogism is valid. Perhaps Facebook has it right? They still grow.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Privacy: get it right or fail” with eBay’s global privacy guy. arseh.at/ovm

via TweetDeck

Hah! Someone just emailed me a link with a warning: ‘Via @nanopunk, so…” And they were right, of course.

via TweetDeck

@Douglasac10 Oh I missed yours, sorry, but I must admit the “I hate Comic Sans” thing is more tribal fad than understanding type history.

via TweetDeck in reply to Douglasac10

Thank you, @en_gy @purserj @DrMiaow @rachmw, your words have been conveyed to the client. There is laughter their end.

via TweetDeck

@RantItLouder Heh! Well, you have just caused me to schedule in a review of the security of my data centre arrangements. ;)

via TweetDeck

Oh, @purserj @KarlskiB, these guys have been a client for a decade. We can speak openly and frankly.

via TweetDeck

Now, Part 2. Telling a client that the origami video transition is…? How harsh should I go?

via TweetDeck

Goodness me, @PointZeroOne @RantItLouder, none of this is even happening on this continent. None of it.

via TweetDeck

Whew. OK. Nothing to see here, folks. Move along now.

via TweetDeck

Copying the 1GB tarball of last night’s backup from the NAS back to the web server. Shut up. I’m a professional.

via TweetDeck

Oh fuck fuck fuckitty fuck.

via TweetDeck

Oh. I had hoped that the Monday plan would be valid for longer than 20 minutes, but apparently not. Let’s see how we can do this…

Robot wasps build a nest, kinda. arseh.at/ovh

@R_Chirgwin 0815 AEDT, 50.4V on the battery, forecast 14C party cloudy, but right not it’s bright and clear. A Victory Day for solar energy.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Mon plan: Manage client webby work; plan this month’s writing; update an article I wrote for reprinting in a book for schools (true); TGIM.

via TweetDeck

Nice commentary on Twitter by @charltonbrooker but a misleading headline. arseh.at/ovg

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin They’ve have to be succinct with the report. Not much room to write on moths, even bogongs. @joshgnosis @j_hutch @ScottRhodie

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin
