OH: “Have a good night, guys, enjoy that next bottle of wine.”

via TweetDeck

@damana @SnarkyPlatypus Correct, a complete lack of undertheoceanness here.

via TweetDeck in reply to damana

So Ryde also has those cunts who park across the footpath.

via TweetDeck

Right. I have dawdled enough. Time to walk the final bit to dinner.

via TweetDeck

You’re too right this isn’t Atlantis, @SnarkyPlatypus! It is severely lacking in anything of Atlantic proportions.

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce Transit cops!!! RUN FOR YOUR LIVES!

via TweetDeck

Is this even a place?

via TweetDeck

Efficient and prudent operation of the public transport system has delivered me to Outer Mongolia well ahead of requirements.

Download navaids.

@BernardKeane Oh Dear God I always knew you were secretly 13 years old! Also, well played.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

OTOH, I’ve just caught a bus of the same route number, just 10 mins earlier.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonkudelka: You are an embarrassment to the Xtreme Commuter community. [This is true. But I do have two bottles of wine.]

via TweetDeck

Running early for a bus change. I choose to wait until the planned bus rather than trying to be clever and risk committing route failure.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Bottle shop; walk down Balmain Rd; catch a combination of buses to Ryde; walk to where dinner is to be had.

via TweetDeck

@blahjedi Odd thought here, I didn’t consider myself to be particularly close to the industry. :) Perception is an odd thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to blahjedi

@Wyld Well, iiNet seemed to the most psychologically acceptable exit strategy for @simonhackett, I just assumed they were haggling.

via TweetDeck

Hah, @Wyld! Denials of corporate mergers are right up there with “The Prime Minister has my complete support.”

via TweetDeck

Now, can everyone stop pretending this is a surprise?

via TweetDeck

@simonhackett A nice innings all round, Sir. Good Fortune with whatever you choose to do next.

via TweetDeck

@Colvinius Internode is/was very much the geek’s ISP.

via TweetDeck

@Colvinius A lot of the iiNet-buyout-is-bad is the romance of @simonhackett having kept Internode as his personal company for so long.

via TweetDeck

RT @engochick: Wow. iiNet’s buying Internode. More to come on ZDNet Australia soon. [Gosh.]

via TweetDeck

30 minutes until the Solstice.

via TweetDeck

I might write a blog post on the weekend, “Things I have learned from the internet”.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: It’s what the internet is for. Learning. [This is true. I’ve learned many, many things from the internet.]

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad Oh thanks, because I’m not really familiar with the ways of sheep.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

New blog post: “Visiting Ballarat for Linux.conf.au 2012” arseh.at/pm2

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad So, as a reference point, what non-disturbing things do lambs usually say to you?

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@mpesce Yeah well the flesh-eating goats were bound to turn up again sooner or later.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Are you saying that they’re right this time?

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@IanKath I think the numbers are cached around the place, ‘cos I see 6665.

via TweetDeck in reply to IanKath

@leslienassar Didn’t Larry Wall cite laziness as one of the three programmer’s virtues?

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@Koalanon Nah, I know. It’s a piece that’s a little more timeless and can stand being on the home page for a week and a half.

via TweetDeck

@IanKath Hmmm? I don’t really look at the numbers. Some pleasing pattern, is it?

via TweetDeck in reply to IanKath

See that thing I did just there? That’s called “logic”.

via TweetDeck

Ah, it looks like my @technologyspec piece is to be posted tomorrow, based on the rather clear evidence that it wasn’t posted today.

via TweetDeck

Me at CSO: “Permission-greedy apps not always rogue or lazy” arseh.at/pm1

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @nanopunk Neither of you people are helpful. I have ignored your suggestions.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Walk to nearest little supermarket; buy stuff; walk back. Exciting, eh?

via TweetDeck

The visitor has been and gone, and the CSO story has been filed. And errand and lunch looms.

via TweetDeck

Thanks for suggesting @MakerFaireMel on 14 Jan, @KathyReid That’s a definite “will consider”.

via TweetDeck

@CollinVanUden Arriving on the Monday some time TBA, departing on the Saturday. I hope I live up to expectations.

via TweetDeck in reply to CollinVanUden

@Nicholosophy Heh. I know fuck all about Drupal but, yes, an interview should be done. I’ll see if the event is on the agenda.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nicholosophy

@Nicholosophy Drupal Down Under is probably not something I can get budget for, alas.

via TweetDeck in reply to Nicholosophy

@CollinVanUden Oh hello, Sir! It shall be good to catch up. Assuming we will be catching up.

via TweetDeck in reply to CollinVanUden

I think I committed an evil by listing my favourite editor as BBEdit. Fuck ‘em, narrow-minded little platform zealots!

via TweetDeck

I will book my flights etc once I’ve figured out if there’s stuff in Melbourne either side I should also be at.

via TweetDeck

So, I’ve just registered for Linux.conf.au in Ballarat from 16 Jan, which I’m covering for @TechRepublic and @zdnetaustralia

via TweetDeck

RT @Nicholosophy: What would you prefer? Operation Come Safe? [Nah, that’s more a gay safe sex campaign, innit.]

via TweetDeck

RT @FPTom: I much preferred “Operation smoking pile of twisted steel and death”. [Well yes, I think that much is obvious.]

via TweetDeck

Meanwhile NSW Police have been up all night thinking up the name for “Operation Safe Arrival”. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

Should anyone care, here’s an up-and-to-the-right chart showing Android activations reaching 700,000 per day. arseh.at/plw

via TweetDeck

RT @nanopunk: “Pass the peas, bitch.” Nope, not swearing. [Yeah, um, oh… When you put it like that it does sound a bit like swearing.]

via TweetDeck

Whew! @technologyspec story filed. It’s about Facebook, and I don’t swear in it at all. Not even once. “Bitch” isn’t swearing, right?

via TweetDeck

Ermph! My brain wasn’t built for 0930 deadlines. Nearly there, though.

via TweetDeck

Final pimpage! Me at Crikey: “Still mid-game in the digital year that was”, as recommended by @BernardKeane arseh.at/pko

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I suppose American Airlines, being in Chapter 11, can ONLY improve. If it doesn’t, it’s no longer American Airlines.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

WTF? American Airlines just emailed to “share our sense of optimism and outlook for even brighter days to come”. I’LL HAVE WHAT THEY’RE ON!

via TweetDeck

Ah yes. Summer Solstice is today at 1630 AEDT / 0530 UTC. Well, today for us here in The Lucky Country.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin The visitor will contribute to the almost unnavigable must-tidy-sometime, but only temporarily. Also, a ship wouldn’t fit.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Thu plan: Finish @technologyspec story; receive a visitor; finish CSO story; map out web development work; dinner in Ryde.

via TweetDeck

@GTRoberts @RealNickHodge Well, the lovely young Lebanese gentlemen at the barber shop I frequent discreetly trim said odd hair. They know.

via TweetDeck

RT @RealNickHodge: 6.52am. Tired and grumpy. Fuck, is this what it is like to be old? [Yeah, pretty much. Also, hair grows inconveniently.]

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile @adm_76 I think both of you gentlemen need hosing down with cold salt water.

via TweetDeck

For those that care, the new influence measurement tool Kred has just dropped out of beta and gone live at kred.ly

via TweetDeck

@ksablan Ah! I didn’t make the Romper Room connection. And here’s me growing up with Miss Michelle! I always knew the mirror was a fake.

via TweetDeck in reply to ksablan

@ksablan Anyway, I like the little rituals some people have on Twitter. Your greeting. @mpesce’s affimation of the day’s plan.

via TweetDeck

@ksablan Hey, well, it was 0100 when I came up with what I think is a good lede and the next four pars just flowed. Something’s working!

via TweetDeck in reply to ksablan

@ksablan Well, Sir, you’re a true gentleman. Australia itself treats me well. Mistress Insomnia, not so much. But hey, I get writing done.

via TweetDeck in reply to ksablan

@ksablan Hi there. I hate to think what I’ve done to blip up in the Orange County Register’s newsroom. Was I using bad language again?

via TweetDeck

Fursday. And I haven’t shaved for two days, so Fursday it indeed is. That and I’ve been writing much of the night.

via TweetDeck

OK, back to writing since I’m in the mood…

via TweetDeck

@tijs Thanks very much, Tijs, much appreciated.

via TweetDeck in reply to tijs

@tijs I’m hoping my email with interview questions made its way to you?

via Twitter Web Client

Well that’s most of tomorrow afternoon’s CSO story written. Well, THIS afternoon’s I suppose. I’m feeling righteous.

via TweetDeck

@sidb Ah, you have protected tweets. I’ve put in a follow request so you can DM me the answer if you like. Thanks.

via TweetDeck

@sidb Hi, are you the same sidb who asked this question about @twistory? arseh.at/pjx Just fact-checking I’ve got the right name.
