I can no longer be trusted with the internet. You can have it now.

BUT IT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING TO NOT QUESTION MY ANALYSIS I AM SMARTER THAN YOU ARE AND HERE IS THE DIAGRAM!

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I think we do need a Melissa/Dannii showdown of some sort. [Something like this youtu.be/GIuvlqKX0TY …?]

via TweetDeck

“Barbie Girl” (Sam Kekovich v Melissa Tkautz v Justice Crew), so full of right! arseh.at/qex HT @clutterbells via @SnarkyPlatypus

via TweetDeck

More passive-aggressive bullshit.

via TweetDeck

@en_gy Can’t go to bed yet. There’s wine left.

via TweetDeck

@en_gy It’s been a long day. I don’t have the energy to complain all night.

via TweetDeck

7C tonight? Orly? Well, I can’t be arsed lighting a fire. I’ll just complain on Twitter in the morning.

@buckleup Bah! By the weird-as-shit-worldview standards of the Blue Mountains I’m the very picture of logic and reason.

via TweetDeck in reply to buckleup

@buckleup Oddly enough fish and chips would probably have been a less-salty thing, since I couldn’t screamed NO FUCKING SALT YOU ARSEHATS!

via TweetDeck in reply to buckleup

@R_Chirgwin @zzap I usually don’t use any salt in my cooking. This is… way more salt than I find pleasant. Also organ is just fine thanks.

via TweetDeck

@zzap Osmosis? [digging into old memories] Partial pressure in solutions… so I soak the chicken in water overnight, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to zzap

There must be a method for getting salt out of roast chicken. Cold water extraction or, um, look, I don’t understand what I’m saying.

via TweetDeck

If in Wentworth Falls, NEVER buy chicken from Falls Take-Away. It is always way too salty. Three fails out of three.

via TweetDeck

The cybersecurity panel recorded with @stiennon @seankopelke will be on ABC Radio National at 0810 tomorrow and at arseh.at/qer

via TweetDeck

The backlog of @replies will be dealt with either 1. a bit later or 2. never. Larger numbers are more likely.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Hah! That password is not only glorious and true, it also works. Many thanks!

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Oh excellent, thank you! That’ll help counteract the over-salted roast chicken. Now all I need is the Wi-Fi password. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

And… we’re at Bunjaree Cottages. I shall consider dinner before taking anything too seriously.

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS I’ve got a heavy case to shift, I’m jot going to open the fucking door for you too!

via TweetDeck

Is it true that Telstra BigPond, a company that wraps itself in the flag, still charges for data from our national broadcaster’s iView?

via TweetDeck

@chrisgander I didn’t see, but whatever caused our train’s departure to be delayed momentarily is unlikely to affect you a month hence.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisgander

Half an hour until I arrive at Wentworth Falls. I thought I’d have more of a nap but was woken by so-called “revenue protection officers”.

via TweetDeck

There is Something Happening at Strathfield station.

via TweetDeck

@charispalmer Yes I like to think I do a better class of manufactured outrage.

via TweetDeck in reply to charispalmer

RT @unsungsongs: ABC is looking for a new ‘Head of Arts’. Is it you? bit.ly/AjIi2L [Sure, I’ll sort out those lazy cardiganfolk.]

via TweetDeck

@charispalmer It’s OK, Charis, I’ll make up some… um, I mean report on some news for you soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to charispalmer

The 1653 service to Mt Victoria always seems more civilised. Is this because it doesn’t stop at Blacktown?

via TweetDeck

Snap poll! Which US radio presenter with the initials IG sounds most likely to be a serial killer?

via TweetDeck

All taxis should play Duran Duran. That is all.

via TweetDeck

This Ira Glass worship is all a bit creepy, I find.

via TweetDeck

RT @paulmp he specialises in “weddings, scenery, maternity, newborns, engagements, autos, spots, portraits”… so nothing really [Glorious!]

via TweetDeck

So are you all sick of cost photograph yet? Now a certain editor can see why I didn’t call. Editors shouldn’t be allowed on Twitter.

via TweetDeck

@paulmp Hah! I hadn’t clicked thru to see his other work yet. I don’t think I’ll bother now, thanks for the heads-up. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp Exactly. His costings included bullshit and left out vital stuff. But it’s still “brilliant” because… why? Any handwaving will do?

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp Yes, I did read the post, and that’s not how you do costings. Plus if I wanted that image I’d book a photographer on a day rate.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

Mobile, somewhat later than planned: Train back to Town Hall; collect suitcase; cab to Central; train to Wentworth Falls; etc.

via TweetDeck

@paulmp That’s my entire point. He was saying this is what the photo COST, and his costings were rubbish. Utter rubbish. Accounting fail.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp But I think you think I’m saying that photographs shouldn’t be paid for. That is certainly not my position.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp Gawd, Mr Six Thousand is no Gursky! Mr Six Thousand clearly has an inflated idea of his image’s worth. That’s what I object to.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp “Stole”? Have you thought of starting a music company? Copyright infringement, sure. Theft, no.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp Obviously no-one should use his work without permission, but that’s just a bullshit price in a buyer’s market.

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@paulmp His “this photo cost X” calculation was bullshit. Completely undermined his argument IMO. And $6k for a generic sunrise? Bah!

via TweetDeck in reply to paulmp

@mrgrumpystephen @paulmp Thank you for completely missing the point.

via TweetDeck

Whinging entitled photographer demonstrates why we still need accountants. arseh.at/qe7 HT @paulmp @wolfcat

@Jayne13 Communing with Ibises seems to involve a decorated shopping trolley and much dancing around a moreton bay fig tree.

via TweetDeck in reply to Jayne13

Is @lukehopewell a “technology expert”? Well bugger me!

via TweetDeck

A new island has just erupted into the Red Sea. arseh.at/qe6

Oh dear. The Old Woman who was Communing with the Ibises in Belmore Park just walked in. Her name is Tammy, apparently.

RT @excid3: This is how the internet is created arseh.at/qe5 HT @jdub

@SulphurCocky Aust was unusual at the time for linking online and offline business identities, but I reckon the result is trustworthiness.

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@saasu I just fell in love with you again for “{Date+1M}”. It’s these little things…

via TweetDeck

All IT media releases begin thus: “[Company] [generic improvement verb] [vague business jargon] with [product name].” Who the fuck cares?

via TweetDeck

@dmflower Thank you. Yeah, if you’ve learned something today, well, that’s a wrap. /cc @crikey_news

via TweetDeck in reply to dmflower

@SulphurCocky The .com.au domains have been linked to business identities for many years now. Aim is that .com.au == legitimate business.

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@4_martinis The $185k isn’t to “register a domain but “set up a top-level domain registry”. It’s a solid amount of work.

via TweetDeck in reply to 4_martinis

Me at @crikey_news: “The snake oil that is domain registries’ big fat new revenue stream”. With bonus typos! arseh.at/qe2

via TweetDeck

It appears that a thing called Bar Racuda will soon open on Enmore Rd.

via TweetDeck

Also, typos. Sorry. I was in a hurry.

via TweetDeck

Suddenly realising that one of the examples I used in my @crikey_news story today is entirely unconvincing.

via TweetDeck

RT @Sephyre You could say that about any speculation for an event that hasn’t finished yet. [Yes. Yes you could.]

via TweetDeck

Dear Media, do you know when we’ll know who the next US President will be? November, that’s when. Until then, shut the fuck up.

The young woman resolves certain difficulties in her personal life by shouting at the man from 30m away.

via TweetDeck

No, I’m not explaining how I know that.

via TweetDeck

But just to make it clear,you’re not allowed to have sex on Druitt St. Not at lunchtime, anyway.

via TweetDeck

Time for these errands over to Enmore and Newtown. And lunch. Yes, lunch.

via TweetDeck

OH, three older women planning their travel: “It’s a lake. It should be nice.”

@SulphurCocky ISPs are in the ideal position to detect and deal with zombies They have the relationship with the end users. /cc @LiamT

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@ozdj @NickHodgeMSFT So, apparently I’m… what? A whole day behind the pace now? NFI what you’re talking about.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozdj

Story filed for @crikey_news! Whew! Goodness me that was some, um, creative typing.

via TweetDeck

Writing. Shoosh.

via TweetDeck

RT @en_gy: Where on earth am I going to squeeze @stilgherrian this afternoon? [Now show on the dolly where the bad man squeezed you…]

via TweetDeck

Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to get all this shit to fit back in the fucking suitcase.

via TweetDeck

Thank you, @BernardKeane @xrobau @en_gy, all as helpful as ever. (@en_gy Call back after midday, I’ll have time for you then.)

via TweetDeck

Who just tried to phone me?

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ A pleasure, Jonathan. So, what’s the difference between “industry consensus” and “groupthink”? ;) @stiennon @seankopelke

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

I think I’ll walk back to the hotel, check out, write the @crikey_news piece and then head to Newtown.

via TweetDeck

And… we’re clear.

via TweetDeck

Recording begins.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems I know you’re disappointed, but double-zombie headlines are good for the, you know, traffic.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

I am in TARDIS 1 at ABC Ultimo. There is a strong buzzing noise in my headphone. Or there may be bees in my mind. One or the other.

via TweetDeck

“Australia’s zombie infections doubled in 2011”, writes @LiamT. Is iCode failing to deliver results? arseh.at/qdz

via TweetDeck

@seankopelke Indeed, Sean, look forward to chatting with you, @stiennon and @GreenJ shortly.

via TweetDeck

@MetaMikeBiggs Our concepts of breakfast are vastly different.

via TweetDeck in reply to MetaMikeBiggs

Mobile: Cab across to ABC Ultimo, which should be fairly quick.

via TweetDeck

Can I sneak a quick @crikey_news story into this morning’s plan? Why yes, I think I can.

via TweetDeck

The breakfast cheese platter is not excessive, no Sir!

via TweetDeck

It’s still scheduled for 0810 tomorrow even if you didn’t see me mention it. I am not Schrödinger.

via TweetDeck

If you saw me mention an ABC Radio National panel on cybersecurity for 0810 this morning, that’s now scheduled for 0810 tomorrow.

@Melissa_Moyle Visiting the NBN Display Centre in Melbourne isn’t a bad idea at all. I shall consider.

via TweetDeck in reply to Melissa_Moyle

@R_Chirgwin No, the @firstdogonmoon badges would be mine. Must’ve slipped out my my box of crap onto your floor.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Wed plan: 0930 ABC Ultimo recording; errand Newtown/Enmore; errand Sydney CBD; train to Wentworth Falls; planning en route; shopping; sleep.

Wednesday. Here we go. Kinda. Ermph. Oh. Oooo. [Thud.]
