Christmas. “Oh, my, has it come to this?” A Postal Tale. arseh.at/ozj

via TweetDeck

Watch out, folks, @mpesce has discovered arithmetic.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Must you really use the face of some thick lipped boy? … That sounded wrong.”

via TweetDeck

OK, that’s hours, not days. 48 hours until @jessradio departs. This WILL be interesting! @TheGlobalMail is bigger than I thought.

via TweetDeck

Wow. ABC’s @jessradio is now Middle East correspondent for @TheGlobalMail, leaving within days it seems. Congrats, I guess!

via TweetDeck

Twitter killed my blog / comment cycle. I miss stuff like “Maybe the government knows more than you do” arseh.at/oze

via TweetDeck

I responded to the Nazis. This was possibly a poor choice. The first poor choice I’ve ever made since dinner time.

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer I wish to point out that the Adelaide Institute is not representative of the fair city in any way.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus IIRC they’re not big fans of the Imperial flag there. Something something Hiroshima something never again.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@BennettArron Thank you. Although I’m not sure that I did anything. Well, a discussion of Hitler and the nature of Evil, sure. OK then.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

Oh. 7 December. 70th anniversary of the US entering WWII. That’ll bring out the brown-shirts…

via TweetDeck

RT @gilfer: well what else do you expect from nazis? [Well, yes, I suppose…]

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS! Now I’ve got Nazis on my website going all pro-Hitler anti-Jew. Sigh. arseh.at/oz8

via TweetDeck

That said, Sophos Anti-Virus found a copy of LOIC I’d forgotten I had. Alex Kirk was right. Stay away from RAR files. arseh.at/mss

via TweetDeck

As it happens, @jplonie, I’m just wrapping up the fixerating of all that Bug in OS X Lion PDF rendering, it seems.

via TweetDeck

@jplonie Bah. Cost-benefit analysis. Dopplr: Works, mostly. I wait sometimes. No thinking. TripIt: Thinking needed. /cc @chrisjrn

via TweetDeck

Yeah yeah TripIt, @jplonie @chrisjrn, the but Dopplr’s problems get fixed after a few days and I’m not that concerned. When I get time…

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn Yeah, but the ONLY thing I use Dopplr for is listing travel on my website and having it go away automatically when done.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Dopplr’s genius: “Sorry, we couldn’t add those trips: We can’t find a city called ‘Sydney, Australia’.” Good buy was it, Nokia?

via TweetDeck

Fixing the universe by deleting things.

@R_Chirgwin @natecochrane @gusworldau @sylmobile @neerav I can’t help but think you’re ruining a quiet weekend away.

via TweetDeck

@johnthelutheran SC Magazine’s story by @darrenpauli followed that angle. NSW Privacy Office not happy. arseh.at/oz5

via TweetDeck in reply to johnthelutheran

@Drag0nista Maybe getting re-married is akin to a slow-motion pokie machine. Just one more try…

via TweetDeck in reply to Drag0nista

“Getting married for the third time is like bringing a burns victim to a fireworks show,” says Robin Williams.

via TweetDeck

“The holiday from hell…” DRINK!

via TweetDeck

@BeauGiles Oh, did you mention it too? Quite a few people suggested it, sorry. Plus, um, I am aware of what exists in the market. Oddly.

via TweetDeck in reply to BeauGiles

RT @jplonie: of course it doesnt do anything but thats another matter ;-) [Yeah I’m sure @duckblog told me something about that…]

via TweetDeck

Price, @leslienassar? Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Edition is free, but no support. arseh.at/oz1

via TweetDeck

Wow. Seriously impressed with install process for Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac. 89MB download, 2 mins to install, no restart required.

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane Your tweet text says iTWire, but the link is (correctly) to iTnews. arseh.at/oz0

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

Waiting for a blue rectangle to get longer.

via TweetDeck

Me at CSO: “Want data? Scoop up those lost USB keys” None encrypted, most have data, 2/3 infected arseh.at/oyx

via TweetDeck

@spottedpelican Say what? I use arseh.at for almost all my URL shortening. Have done for months. [confused] /cc @firstdogonmoon @sortius

via TweetDeck in reply to spottedpelican

If you wanted to do an audio comment for “The 9pm Edict”, doing so before 6pm would be an advantage. arseh.at/otj

via TweetDeck

“His art is about creating conversations”, @ozdj @RealNickHodge? Someone stab the arsehat. That’s not a USP, that’s just vague wank.

via TweetDeck

@BeauGiles I don’t think TeamViewer is exactly designed for “webinars” with hundreds or thousands of attendees.

via TweetDeck in reply to BeauGiles

@purserj What what? What are you saying? Logical analysis mumble mumble troublemaker mumble something something thingy.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Today’s @firstdogonmoon cartoon is not only free, but nutritious and promotes regularity. arseh.at/oyu

via TweetDeck

“Cloud databases no panacea for data security”, writes @zyzzyvamedia arseh.at/oyv

via TweetDeck

CSO story filed. Time for @crikey_news and ice cream.

via TweetDeck

@GoToMeeting It’s all cool. I knew it’d be ambitious. I’m on a 3G link in scrubland 100km west of Sydney. /cc @franksting

via TweetDeck

@franksting @GoToMeeting It’s probably a bandwidth thing. You should work for someone who can actually provide decent bandwidth.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

So, @GoToMeeting works just fine (of course) until screen sharing blows away my Next G uplink capacity (of course).

via TweetDeck

RT @jeamland: Pwned again! [Prezactly. Prez-fucking-zactly. And it’s still installing.] /cc @expectproblems

via TweetDeck

Ah. This appears to be the first time I’ve needed Java on this newish machine. Insert three more minutes.

via TweetDeck

Downloading the @GoToMeeting app. Well, waiting for the very slow “Finding software” dialog to get that far.

via TweetDeck

About to do technical test for tomorrow’s @technologyspec “webinar”, “Board with security?” arseh.at/ou8

via TweetDeck

“Adobe warns of zero day Acrobat, Reader attacks,” writes @LiamT. Again. arseh.at/oyt Quick, give @expectproblems another Xanax.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @R_Chirgwin Certainly, yes. Implication is “no employees” means “small”. Multi-million holding companies have no employees too.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @R_Chirgwin Plus, Aust Buisness Register is businesses, not companies. I’m on it, as a sole trader. And I have no employees.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @R_Chirgwin One, for example, was a separate company for a client’s art collection, which he rented out to his other companies.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @R_Chirgwin I know various companies with no employees. Only the directors, or only used to shuffle monies around…

via TweetDeck

Wed plan, belated, unordered: Write for CSO; tech tests for @technologyspec webinar; finish fixing computer; plan “Patch Monday” podcast.

via TweetDeck

@miss_shiny @SalimPickens Thanks, I’ve credited you in an update to the Flickr entries. Much appreciated.

via TweetDeck

“The taxonomy of the Slender-billed Cuckoo-Dove is disputed,” but that’s our beast. arseh.at/oys /cc @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck

Or pheasant pigeon (Macropygia phasianella), reckons @SalimPickens, and yeah very, very similar. /cc @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck

Ah, I reckon @miss_shiny is right. Brown cuckoo-dove (Macropygia amboinensis). See eye markings. arseh.at/oyr /cc @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck

A bronzewing pigeon, says @R_Chirgwin, but there’s quite a few species. I’m guessing common bronzewing. arseh.at/oyq

Photo: This morning’s avian visitor to Rosella Cottage. flic.kr/p/aRAcRv What is it?

via TweetDeck

RT @mjec: Bugs happen. Their response appears to have been absolutely best practice too. Seems like they’ve done well to me…

via TweetDeck

At this point I’d like to ask everyone to send @expectproblems some Xanax and encourage him to take them. He’s right, though.

via TweetDeck

Yet more shit programming from Facebook: private photos exposed, again. arseh.at/oyn

via TweetDeck

BernardKeane Wondering why Victorian Police never assaulted Demis Roussos when he used to visit Melbourne. Dude wore nothing BUT a tent.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:40 AM, Dec 7th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

@bastardsheep Hence, concentrate on the act. Were they doing journalism? That means a “journalist” who just mouthed off loses protection.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep It’s an interesting area. I did a lot of reading / thinking / writing / talking on this in 2009 and 2010. Fun fun fun.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep Mind you, the “look at the act, not the person” meme was floating from @jayrosen_nyu, @MargaretSimons and many others.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep I wrote about this at arseh.at/1kc Indeed, @SenatorLudlam says it influenced our new federal shield laws.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep It should be about the act, not the person. Was it an act of journalism? Not who employs them or what club they joined.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

Personally I’d have added another $500k to the fine for being named “Crystal”, but I stand on very shaky ground here.

Oregon blogger not a journalist, ‘cos she’s not employed by Teh Mediaz. Loses $2.5M defamation case. arseh.at/oyk HT @jayrosen_nyu

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems @tomewing I want to make some desperately earnest pun on “Fight Club”, but I’m coming up blank.

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Correct. US patent 5,487,069 Wireless LAN, filed 23 Nov 1993, issued 23 Jan 1996, assigned to CSIRO.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@tomewing I particularly like the Randroid in the comments on that piece and another. Apparently I’m some sort of anti-business communist.

via TweetDeck in reply to tomewing

@tomewing Thank you. People make their own fun to relieve boredom anyway. Top-down imposed Official Fun probably isn’t the answer.

via TweetDeck in reply to tomewing

RT @tomewing: I have an awesome new workplace game in which workers collectively bargain for rights. But what to call it?

via TweetDeck

@tomewing You may appreciate my article about gamification from a few months back. arseh.at/6q9

via TweetDeck

RT @tomewing: Gamify Wall Street! Oh wait. [Precisely.]

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems @tomewing Problem is, calling it gamification convinces you you’re being hip and cool, not stuffing stale bread with heroin.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Oh. The second tweet was this one from @expectproblems but I can’t make it fit without destroying it. arseh.at/oyi

via TweetDeck

RT @tomewing: Isn’t “gamifying the workplace” … basically admitting that the jobs you offer are crap and have zero intrinsic motivation?

via TweetDeck

The following two tweets contain other people’s Words of Wisdom. They tell you everything you need to know about the world.

via TweetDeck

@peterhau Well, it’s not like I was going to crash out, I’d do a graceful unmount. But yes, I want Nothing to Go Wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

RT @leslienassar: You should have Ustream’d it. [Truth spoken, right there. And if I weren’t on mobile bandwidth I’d start now.]

via TweetDeck

I still haven’t got to the bit where I can start uninstalling and reinstalling software, unless disc encryption can be interrupted?

via TweetDeck

420GB of backups rearranged in 7 hours. 240GB on MacBook Pro backed up in 3h22m. Since 0230 the 640GB external HDD is now 36% encrypted.

via TweetDeck

For those of you with such tedious lives that watching me copy data from disc to disc is entertainment, the next tweet will be an update.

via TweetDeck

@JonoH I’m sorry to hear that. Chewstay was atrocious. Some of it is leaking into Waddlesday too. I am unimpressed.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

Waddlesday. Emrph.
