Rendering new audio files. And emptying the mini-bar. One causes the other.

Fuck. I missed one of the fucks. I’m definitely going to have to upload a new version of the podcast now. Goddam fuckitty fuck fuck.

via TweetDeck

@JMRooker I seem to recall that DirecTV legal battle. I’ve been around too long. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to JMRooker

@JMRooker Heh! They’ve probably already thought of it. Thanks for the compliments. Much appreciated, especially since I’m so exhausted.

via TweetDeck in reply to JMRooker

Ah bugger. Just found a distracting mix error in the “Patch Monday” podcast. The theme plays during @SenatorLudlam’s comments. Will fix.

via TweetDeck

@bleeters I appreciate your point, but I also have real stats on how long workflow changes take, and it’s all non-billable. /cc @Wyld

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

@BernardKeane Thanks. That was such a quick and dirty cut-down of the forum that I feared killing the narrative structure.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@Wyld @bleeters I had a Slackware box in 1995. I run Linux servers. It’s not about learning. It’s constructing new workflows in new tools.

via TweetDeck

Oh. I’ve just seen the time. The Moon is New. Kung hei fat choy. bit.ly/PfTkh

via TweetDeck

@bleeters I’m certainly not against the idea of migrating to Linux, but I’m also aware of just how much work is involved. Not now.

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

There. I’m pretty sure that’s all I did that was published today. Maybe. I just can’t tell any more.

via TweetDeck

Becoming irritated with the crashiness of my MacBook Pro. I’ll have to fix this at some point. SIgh. I will now pimp my stories, however.

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane I should be in Sydney on Wednesday evening. If that proves to be the case I’ll have my people call your people.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

Returned to hotel for a slothy evening, unless someone has a better idea.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn Where “best” us.Android automangle for “near”.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@chrisjrn Lurking best your last reported.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn I’ll be down as soon as I’ve finished running the backups.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@chrisjrn Go for Hawksburn, I think. I’m at my hotel and awaiting a reboot so I can get a fix. Navigationally speaking.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Podcast uploaded! Editor placated! I can… breathe and think. Stand by.

via TweetDeck

ID3 tags added, uploading…

via TweetDeck

Compressing to MP3. Adding ID3 tags is next.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn Yep, will send mite details very shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Fark… running over deadline… bleeping f-words… compressing….

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn 100% chance of meeting up, I have mere minutes left on work…

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@AnonNep So, why not mention the bit where I also call the FBI “ham-fisted”? I loaded just as much criticism on them.

via TweetDeck in reply to GoldieSev

Negotiations with editor extend that deadline to 3 hours. We can do this. Well, we must do this.

via TweetDeck

Whew! @zdnetaustralia story filed! Now to edit a 2.5 hour forum into a 40-minute podcast, script links, record and mix in 2.5 hours. Um…

via TweetDeck

OK, head down again, typing for a living. I’ll interact again once the “Patch Monday” podcast is filed.

via TweetDeck

Eating has put me behind schedule. I am screwing up today right royally.

via TweetDeck

@ConcupiscentGuy Ah, I’m remarkably busy. Such subtleties escape me. Especially when I don’t know you and there are no indicators.

via TweetDeck in reply to QuixoticGuy

Isn’t being able to read the connections between people and read their their relative social status a basic social skill?

via TweetDeck

@ConcupiscentGuy Erm, I’m trained to read body language, but anyone can pick it up from a book. Or by being half intelligent and watching.

via TweetDeck in reply to QuixoticGuy

Ah. Awkward body language indicates that’s probably last night’s trade.

via TweetDeck

OH: “That Herbalife stuff? It’s all marijuana.” “What’s that?” “So is that a 4GS?” [There’s a combination of personalities that’ll last.]

via TweetDeck

And when you think about it, it’s fucking rude for people to start giving your schedule to another company without asking first.

via TweetDeck

Baffled by people who just assume I give Google my entire schedule, contact list and the like. Why would I do that?

via TweetDeck

RT @franksting: Why isn’t it “The Biggest Looser”? [True. You think they’d get this sort of thing right for TV.]

via TweetDeck

MT @charispalmer: Don’t Argue says AU banks provide some of the best service in world bit.ly/zqI86C [Hah! Talk to @ApostrophePong.]

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn We have a plan for a plan there, Sir. More closer to the time.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Tue plan preview: Write for Crikey, @zdnetaustralia; meeting Melbourne CBD; lunch with Crikeyfolk; more writing; 1800 DJ859 MEL-SYD.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia; edit “Patch Monday” podcast; put together photo story; dinner somewhere, somewith.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn @jeamland Oh bugger. Abort abort abort. I can’t see how to make “lunch / travel” fit with “complete podcast by 4pm”. Arithmetic.

via TweetDeck

Turning my editorial negotiations and suchlike into a plan for the next two days. Stand by.

@jeamland @chrisjrn OK, lunch today then. Ping me an address to arrive at once I’ve finished this first story and found pants.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

@jeamland @chrisjrn Actually, my expected dinner engagement tonight just fell through. Maybe some oipen after-work drinks?

via TweetDeck

@jeamland @chrisjrn Yep, I can go to Collingwood. I just need 240V and a horizontal surface to work at. Writing and podcast edits.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn @jeamland If qe’re to do lunch today I’ll have to be near South Yarra as I’m on deadline. Well, unless I work elsewhere this arvo.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@chrisjrn @purserj @ABCthedrum Hah! Thankfully I have too much to do today to read the comments. Or is that “alas”?

via TweetDeck

Me at @technologyspec: “Beware the piracy clones” bit.ly/wNsluf

Me at @ABCthedrum: “Collateral damage in the copyright wars”, with comments open. bit.ly/xYnHB9

Negotiating with editors, obtaining coffee, smiling at the way it’s all congealing.

via TweetDeck

@thepatus Hiya. arseh.at is fine from here now too. I must’ve been temporary late at night. Wad def down from multiple locations tho. Ta.

via TweetDeck in reply to thepatus

Nap over. Let’s see if that helped.

via TweetDeck

NewtonMark 4%. Try harder Australia. RT @tweeveetv: Nationwide, the Young Talent Time reboot had 8,326 Tweets 21% were RTs 4% contained profanity.

via Echofon (retweeted on 7:43 AM, Jan 23rd, 2012 via TweetDeck)

Second of four articles filed. But now I’m sneezing and hitting microsleep. I’d better have a nap.

via TweetDeck

Media alert! Ranga in Chief on ABC Radio National at 0735. That’s in 5 minutes.

via TweetDeck

This second article is going OK, and will be finished soon, but I think I might need another nap after that. We shall see.

via TweetDeck

Sneezing. Uhoh.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile @ataraxite Well this house is all well and good. bit.ly/zzDijf Until you measure the soil lead levels.

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite WTF? If I can’t afford to buy a property of my own, which I can’t, and someone can’t own a second one I can use, where do I live?

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite @thepatus I’ve had to resort to sheepified URL shorteners. It’s like eating at McDonald’s, but without the individuality.

via TweetDeck

@itison Now I grant you, feck.it is rather special… /cc @thepatus

via TweetDeck in reply to itison

So arseh.at is down, and has been for some time. Ping @thepatus.

via TweetDeck

So that’s 1 of 4 articles filed. But it was the trickiest, and the thoughts that generated it feed into the others.

via TweetDeck

@BarrettBrownLOL Will do, thanks. I’ll email you shortly so you have my details. I only fire up Skype when I’m actually recording.

via TweetDeck in reply to BarrettBrownLOL

@BarrettBrownLOL BTW, a chat with you for @zdnetaustralia’s “Patch Monday” podcast would be good some time. bit.ly/5II0B9 Possible?

via TweetDeck in reply to BarrettBrownLOL

@BarrettBrownLOL Thank you. I’d seen a lot of confused variants and knew they couldn’t ALL be right!

via TweetDeck in reply to BarrettBrownLOL

@BarrettBrownLOL I write about Anonymous from time to time. How should I cite you? Surely not “operative” as RT did? bit.ly/Ajx9FE

via TweetDeck

They just have everything so RIGHT in Nevada.

via TweetDeck

@stryqx Thanks for those more current stats. I tend not to pay attention to the Random Big Numbers. I should just make them up too.

via TweetDeck in reply to stryqx

@jasonjordan The only word that needs capitalising my in tweet is the one that starts with C. Which I left out.

via TweetDeck

If the world’s media are going to make “journalism” out of my tweets, they might as well get proper punctuation.

via TweetDeck

RT @MissKatiePrice: I have not been hacked at all. [Yeah, we figured that, you stupid, dishonest arsehat. Integrity fail, much?]

via TweetDeck

As usual, @johnthelutheran is right on the money. Sigh. And I’d never even heard of Katie Price before, truly. There’s an Edict segment.

via TweetDeck

MT @johnthelutheran: I expected so much better from Katie Price, and from “social advertising” types. Who’s left to believe in?

via TweetDeck

So why would anyone trust @MissKatiePrice ever again? What a fuckwitted poisoning of your own brand! Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

RT @johnthelutheran: WTF? Those “Katie Price hacked!” tweets turned out to be a /Snickers/ ad??? [Failing to differentiate editorial, ads?]

via TweetDeck

For a long time now I’ve simple assumed that it’s all bullshit, @jasonjordan. I suspect it works out quicker that way.

via TweetDeck

The URL for my immediately previous tweet about the ABC @702sydney stupid re Megaupload is arseh.at/qvs

via TweetDeck

Oh here’s a stupid from @702sydney. Megaupload “accounts for about 4% of internet uploads”? Orly? Try 4% of “internet traffic”. At its peak.

via TweetDeck

RT @langtry_girl: Whoever has hacked @MissKatiePrice’s Twitter account is a /genius/…..:-D [This. Is. So. True! HT @johnthelutheran]

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong @kofeyh There’s always the mini-bar… and then room service.

via TweetDeck

BTW, this first article is about Megaupload and Anonymous and SOPA/PIPA and the end of the world and stupidity.

via TweetDeck

RT @Nicholosophy: Over 9000. [Thanks, I’ll go with that.]

via TweetDeck

RT @LapTop006: I’d just go for a Sagan-esque “billions and billions”. [Yeah, but I’d have to have a couple of bongs first.]

via TweetDeck

What number are we currently using for “devices connected to the internet”? Two billion?

via TweetDeck

@kofeyh Hah! It’s only four articles that must be done by 0900 or so but overall your theory is correct. May I subscribe to your newsletter?

via TweetDeck in reply to kofeyh

@ApostrophePong I spent the afternoon at an Italian restaurant on Chapel St, South Yarra. arseh.at/qvr

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Right, back to my writing. I’m allowing myself one glass of Coriole sangiovese for each article finished before 0900.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

RT @LapTop006: Some would argue that at 1:15 am you’re meant to be asleep. [I support this argument. My editors, less so.]

via TweetDeck

So, it’s 0115 on a Sunday night. I’m meant to be writing. Instead, I’m searching my website for pictures taken in toilets. PLEASE EXPLAIN.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong This is the photo that started it, I think. “Unreliable Bangkok 3: Bureaucracy” arseh.at/qvq

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong My tastes in กะเทย may not be the same as yours. :P arseh.at/qvo Also, Google Translate fail. arseh.at/qvp

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

So I’m fairly sure that’s the first time I’ve used the word กะเทย in a tweet. /cc @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong Can you explain to me why I found Thai toilets amazing? I’ve forgotten. Or is that a good thing? กะเทยกะเทย!

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@johnemcintyre That said, I see you used one in your tweet, the other on the blog. I am relieved… and love your work, Sir.

via TweetDeck

@johnemcintyre It wasn’t the split infinitive, I’m with you on that. I was fearful of trampling on some subtle distinction of meaning.
