I keep forgetting they’re brothers. Too many possibilities.

@monkeytypist @SnarkyPlatypus Well, according to the internet it should be: Voici les pompons pour vous.

@vanderaj @curphey Thanks for the heads-up. I’ll certainly follow up when it’s not 1740 on a Friday. ;) I’m exhausted!

UPDATED with Attorney-General’s Dept response: “Govt’s DisasterWatch: the ‘9/11 of apps’” arseh.at/p1n

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Does that ellipsis signify the arrival of the Special Operations Group? [If it does, I’d better put my pants back on.]

via TweetDeck

Response received from Attorney-General’s Department. Stand by…

via TweetDeck

The tag has been fixed, @jplonie, as has the spelling, @WarWraith @franksting @leslienassar… TGIF.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar You, Sir, are a walking soundbite. A national treasure. Well, you should be put into a wooden chest, anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@jplonie Ta for the heads-up. I have asked for a fix. I have no access to the CMS.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

@leslienassar Sorry, Leslie, something my end auto-mangled your name and I didn’t spot it. Have asked it to be fixed. /cc @franksting

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Govt’s DisasterWatch: the ‘9/11 of apps’” with @leslianassar @nambor @keithahern arseh.at/p1n

via TweetDeck

Second story filed. Third story abandoned because brane.

via TweetDeck

RT @vanderaj: @stilgherrian you should interview @curphey [About…?]

via TweetDeck

@jplonie @AISA_MAN @GTRoberts Hah! Comments on the website please… ;)

via TweetDeck

Bolding all the things.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, @WarWraith, as you said that I was sub-editing a client’s Christmas marketing email. Kill me. Kill me now.

via TweetDeck

RT @WarWraith: @stilgherrian you have the makings of a fine internet marketer, sir! [WASH YOUR FUCKING MOUTH OUT RIGHT NOW!]

via TweetDeck

I don’t know why I created that false sense of urgency. I won’t be thinking about it until later. HURRY! WHILE STOCKS LAST! You arsehats.

via TweetDeck

You have less than two hours to create a caption for this pic of @bengrubb, @aussexparty’s Fiona Patten and me. arseh.at/ovv

via TweetDeck

RT @paulwallbank: Cats. Editors love cats. [This is true. So, we need an information security story that includes cats.]

via TweetDeck

Whew! Draft of second article thingy send to editor personage. I wonder what my third article will be about.

via TweetDeck

RT @firstdogonmoon: For the next 24 hours only… First Dog on the Moon personalised avatars are only $20 - DM me your email address …

via TweetDeck

@jamezpolley Ah yes, good point. My fuzzed brain didn’t even make that connection. Mind you, I’m deep in something else right now.

via TweetDeck in reply to jamezpolley

RT @peterjblack: a louis vuitton condom … for only $68 a condom arseh.at/p1k [I’d say this is such a wank, but then…]

via TweetDeck

I have a media release here from a company called “Samsung” about some product called “Galaxy Tab 10.1”. Apparently that’s a thing now. ;)

via TweetDeck

@jamezpolley Editorial firewall. We have no communication with salespeople. They’ve no influence on us. But I do hate those ads. /cc @LiamT

Me at @crikey_news: “Turnbull overstating the uncommercial NBN case … mostlyarseh.at/p1joI

via TweetDeck

Being upgraded.

via TweetDeck

@adm_76 Probably not a good idea this early in the day.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

@adm_76 I’ll draw a diagram later. Oh wait.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

RT @adm_76 “One really wants to try and force a real mouth around that.”

via TweetDeck

“Toy?” “Het?” Dear Android, stop be dangling my words.

via TweetDeck

@ForsakenDAemon If toy add asterisks it only counts as one word.

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

@jeamland And they wonder why they don’t het more media coverage, I bet. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

jeamland Dear @stilgherrian, I am at a loss to work out how one is meant to pronounce the acronym “AGCNCO”. Can you help me? Yours, Perplexed.

via Twitterrific for Mac (retweeted on 1:07 PM, Dec 9th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

Second story mostly done, just waiting for some comments to come back. And transport. Waiting for transport.

via TweetDeck

I am arriving at Central. I hope this news excites you.

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: Which means game journos are quite underpaid. Must be why they’re so angry all the time. [No, just too much speed.]

via TweetDeck

RT @charispalmer: Technology Spectator is on the lookout for a new journo to work alongside Supra (Melb based). DM me if interested

via TweetDeck

OK, that’s enough of a mental break. Back to the writing. Shoosh, you lot.

via TweetDeck

Oh no secret there, @purserj, going rate for freelance tech journalism in Australia is 50c/word. @MargaretSimons lists the rates somewhere.

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: I can write an Apple vs Samsung article in just 1 word! Here it is: *sigh* [Congrats. You just earned 50 cents.]

via TweetDeck

“Eric Schmidt: Yup, Carrier IQ is a “keylogger”, writes @LiamT. Who let Schmidt out in public this time? arseh.at/p0t

via TweetDeck

@QF1 Now, I put a comma in that sentence to deal with people like you!

via TweetDeck in reply to QF1

Nope, @R_Chirgwin, I’m not doing Apple vs Samsung today. I believe @lukehopewell drew that straw.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed! Two more to go, one for ZDNet Australia and one for CSO Online.

via TweetDeck

I forgot to mention. I now have three things to write today, as well as plan the “Patch Monday” podcast. I am flat out!

via TweetDeck

OH, boarding at Blaxland: “Yes, I am talking. Shut the fuck up.”

via TweetDeck

Writing, on a train.

via TweetDeck

@franksting I haven’t sorted my mobile data yet. I’m on deadline today and haven’t had time. I’ll have fast internets in Sydney today.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@GrubUnit I couldn’t say. I haven’t read anything written by @mirandadevine in ages.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Sit on verandah; cab to Wentworth Falls; 1032 train to Sydney; and then to where I’m staying for the next few days.

via TweetDeck

@MediaActive @ireckon @asunderland @lelaissezfaire Thank you very much, I appreciate feedback different from the very first comment! ;)

via TweetDeck

@jayrosen_nyu Hiya I bought into the Crystal Cox you are not a journalist story. And I quoted you. arseh.at/p0q

via TweetDeck in reply to jayrosen_nyu

@timdunlop Thanks, Tim. I think part of Cox’s problem is that she’s defending herself and trying to “be heard” rather than, um, defending.

via TweetDeck in reply to timdunlop

@middleclassgirl In a strange moment of self-control, I decided that a Crystal Cox joke wasn’t a good fit with the tone of the article.

via TweetDeck in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@noplaceforsheep @Dramagirl @Dramagirl Thank you very much, glad you liked the @ABCthedrum piece. arseh.at/p0q

via TweetDeck

Me at @ABCthedrum: “When is a journalist not a journalist?” When they’re a blogger, kinda. arseh.at/p0q

@R_Chirgwin Sorry, it’s a BOB Lite, the one iiNet gave us all at KickStart last year.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Oh, I have a spare iiNet BOB device in the Studio too, still in its box! Don’t buy a new modem.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Fri plan: Bump out Rosella Cottage (pack, clean); train to Sydney, work en route; write for CSO; plan “Patch Monday” podcast; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin If I migrate to Sydney earlier, I can start using my “free” high-bandwidth link. And that speeds up my work anyway.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I thought of that, but that slower bandwidth can’t be used for Skype conferencing to record the podcast. And that’s the bulk.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Rearranging my schedule to cope with the diminishing bandwidth.

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: Good lord, they’ll let anybody onto AM these days … [Truth, that. In so few words too.]

via TweetDeck

I’m not in hiding, no. The significance is the highway robbery.

via TweetDeck

No, thank the gods, @paulwallbank. My comments on@amworldtodaypm were recorded at 2130 last night.

via TweetDeck

Sorry to hear that, @NeutronGirl @JennaPrice @miss_shiny, it seems insomnia has been many people’s them this week.

via TweetDeck

From one, to another, with a picture.

via TweetDeck

@moldor Actually that was a typo. It’s 25c/MB for data overruns for me currently (“discounted” from not-packaged $2/MB). Unhappy, I am.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

Friedday. A day of not using data until I can get to a different internet. Sigh. Also, insomnia.
