@smperris Now that you mention it, I have no idea what a typewriter would have cost then. I’ll have to find out.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@smperris Thanks. Language really has fascinated me since I was a kid. I think it was my 6th birthday I asked for a typewriter. And got it.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@franksting Thanks, and agreed. The article really was inspired by the quotes I used, and a flash when I saw the theme linking them.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Thank you, @NewtonMark @smperris @franksting, I do appreciate the feedback. Writers’ insecurity is a terrible thing.

via TweetDeck

@jonhaskell1 Ah yes, the pay rise for MPs… though I didn’t see his TV spot on that. I suspect I can live with that.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonhaskell1

@jonhaskell1 Conroy’s “promotion”? Say what?

There’s rather a lot of rain happening out there.

via TweetDeck

Gawd, I got so distracted by that fractious fire that I’m now not sleepy like I was before. And now it’s almost 2200.

via TweetDeck

@moldor That’s a fine python! But I suspect he’d still cause fear if I draped him around my shoulders like that.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @GeordieGuy Would OpenOffice.org offer a conversion path? (Mind you, installing X then OO is overkill if it’s not urgent.)

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

No, @miss_shiny, I’m reasonably certain that’s not me. I have never been to a Walmart. Or Oklahoma. arseh.at/p8b

via TweetDeck

@moldor Yep, snakes are still a problem. Not photos tho. Well, I haven’t checked for ages, but my last close encounter triggered The Fear.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

There’s probably firelighters in the storeroom, @emmackat @scottnich, but I’m, you know, a man.

via TweetDeck

And… I think we have a sustained chemical reaction. The hissing sound is nothing to be concerned about. It’s perfectly natural.

via TweetDeck

Goodness me, @R_Chirgwin, that “stove door open a crack” really creates a blast furnace!

via TweetDeck

That’s what arson investigators call an accelerant, @moldor @cinderella_oz, and I have a… history there. arseh.at/346

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @bob_bain, but @R_Chirgwin @RubinaCarlson (also thanks) pointed to Conroy on YouTube. youtu.be/bKk0jEVQB_U

via TweetDeck

Experimenting with how much extra newspaper is needed to initiate combustion when all the kindling is just a little bit damp.

via TweetDeck

RT @michellegrattan: Re Stephen C - someone had to create a distraction from the problematic reshuffle. [Oh Michelle, surely not?]

via TweetDeck

RT @BobGrrl: just light the forest, save the gathering of the kindling part. [Good idea. I’ll save @R_Chirgwin a lot of work too.]

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile, if someone has the relevant audio of Senator Conroy they could send me, it could well end up in A Certain Time-Titled Podcast.

via TweetDeck

Min temps next six nights: 8C, 6C, 8C, 9C. Time to light a fire. Gathering of kindling commences. Conveniently, the forest is full of it.

via TweetDeck

About to arrive at Wentworth Falls. A bright evening is pretty, but flags a cold night ahead.

via TweetDeck

@asunderland Maybe we can be lurkers when @mpbowers webcasts his hip replacement surgery.

via TweetDeck

@mpbowers I wouldn’t worry. I’m not sure “lurker” is even used any more. Except by old people.

johncarneyau MT @labcoatman: Will the discovery of the Higgs boson prompt a new meme? “Plancking”: standing the minimum possible distance from things

via Echofon (retweeted on 6:49 PM, Dec 13th, 2011 via TweetDeck)

Watching @BernardKeane and @theprojecttv just now reminds me how Twitter has totally changed “old man shouting at the television”.

via TweetDeck

@mpbowers You hadn’t heard “lurker” before in relation to Twitter, or at all? It’s fairly old online slang.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpbowers

Crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

II just worked it out. Senator Conroy used a word that working journalists, politicians have never heard before, let alone used themselves.

via TweetDeck

Note for the hard of thinking: I am differentiating between “children’s TV” and the formal classification system. Kids watch NPC? Fuck off!

via TweetDeck

OH FFS YOU STUPID ARSEHATS, SINCE WHEN HAS THE NATIONAL PRESS CLUB LUNCH BEEN CHILDREN’S TV?

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin The lack for Dick Turpin photography may have been a factor, but I don’t remember the details.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin The avatar? Oh, the term “highway robbery” came to mind on Thursday, so… here we are.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@helenperris O hai. Our brief stay in Toongabbie is over. Alas, I didn’t take advantage of the impromptu platform tour.

via TweetDeck in reply to helenperris

And we’re moving again.

via TweetDeck

RT @max_au: blast radius? [I hope so. A small nuke would be a vast improvement on the current methods of urban planning in these parts.]

via TweetDeck

RT @erkpod: Website says as of 1744 that a train requires repairs at Kingswood. Seems strange to hold you at Toongabbie for that.

via TweetDeck

CityRail problem is a “mechanical failure” of a train at Kingswood. So, not terrorists or anything.

via TweetDeck

“I think the printer’s broken… Could it be a problem with our network?” arseh.at/p83

via TweetDeck

Train crew’s tone of voice more serious than such thing are normally said.

via TweetDeck

Incident at Kingswood. No trains moving beyond Blacktown. We’re holding at Toongabbie platform until further notice.

via TweetDeck

See? There’s another one.

via TweetDeck

“Women Laughing Alone With Salad” arseh.at/salad HT @GreenJ @drgreen

via TweetDeck

I don’t know what everyone’s on about. I’ve just received Senator Conroy’s speech and PowerPoint slides. Neither say “fiddesticks” at all.

via TweetDeck

RT ‘cos I approve of the headline: Me at @technologyspec: “Time to drop the ‘e’” arseh.at/p7l

via TweetDeck

Note to surveillance team: I have left the SEKRIT lunch with @max_au at Silverbean, Enmore Rd. Crocodile & prawn stew was most acceptable.

via TweetDeck

Town Hall station is awash with CityRail Revenue Protection Officers.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I don’t know. Is this about something that happened on the internet?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Some of the @replies I get are wrong, and some are even moar wronger.

via TweetDeck

Pondering the pig.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Why is it called Newtown? All these buildings are old. It should be called Oldtown.”

via TweetDeck

When it comes to drugs, in the singular case of caffeine it’s socially acceptable to boast about how much of a loser addict you are.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Checking out; walk to Town Hall station; train to Newtown; errands and lunch in Enmore / Newtown.

via TweetDeck

I do love it when editors are even MOAR LINKBAITIER than I am.

via TweetDeck

Me at @technologyspec: “Time to drop the ‘e’” arseh.at/p7l

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. That story was for @technologyspec, not CSO. So sending it to @charispalmer was actually correct. Less-shit last par provided too.

via TweetDeck

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: @MSAU Can you check my mailbox on Level 3. Thanks. [Microsoft. Integrating the online and offline worlds.]

via TweetDeck

CSO story filed. Mostly. The last paragraph is shit, @charispalmer, but I’m still thinking about it.

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: Is it wrong that when I get stressed, I put all the HAL dialogue from 2001 on loop? [Only if you then masturbate.]

via TweetDeck

Writing. Hectic. With dodgy internets today. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Write for @technologyspec; errands in Newtown/Enmore; write for CSO; minor client webby bits; return to Wentworth Falls.

via TweetDeck

@jeamland Communications shall be put in place later today.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

Chewsday. I’m sure I didn’t ask for this.
