@RatbagsDotCom You’re quite right. I should never be silly.

via TweetDeck in reply to RatbagsDotCom

I think I might wait until @smh goes live online and then return to wrapping up my recording session.

via TweetDeck

I’ve never been a big fan of hypocrisy.

via TweetDeck

@savourybanana @SnarkyPlatypus I suppose you’re right. I generally succeed through pure stubbornness.

via TweetDeck

Well, after all that farting about, I have 10 whole minutes of completed podcast. This is now a good shooting ratio. Not good at all.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus There is a conspiracy against sleep. A global one.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The Force, @savourybanana? Or antlers and a riding crop, @SnarkyPlatypus? I’ll mix what I’ve done into a Part A and reconsider over wine.

via TweetDeck

I have the sneaking suspicion that I’ve produced myself into a corner, metaphorically speaking.

via TweetDeck

John Della Bosca? Oh, if you say so.

via TweetDeck

@bleeters There’s not a lot of video on my audio podcasts, in general. Usually.

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

It is one of the great frustrations in the world that audio editing always takes longer than planned, even when you plan for it.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if there really is a secret stash of wine?

via TweetDeck

Starting the recording.

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Talking @TheGlobalMail on Radio 2SER”, with this evening’s audio. bit.ly/yyAFlJ

via TweetDeck

Ah, @chrisjrn @externallylaws, Pavlov had nothing on you guys.

via TweetDeck

Puzzled by a lack of specificity.

via TweetDeck

This is coming together slowly but rather well.

via TweetDeck

@vanderaj Oddly enough, I have an idea for a novel which is part military techno-thriller part disturbingly sexual gay soap opera.

via TweetDeck in reply to vanderaj

@chrisjrn No, no pun. It’s purely a tribute to Ms Attard before I talk about @TheGlobalMail

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Hmmm… I’m having trouble finding sound of vision of Monica Attard reporting from that tank in Moscow. Anyone have linkage?

via TweetDeck

More your “Villain enters, stage left”, yes @iain_chalmers, and not your programmy stuff, @chrisjrn @eddit0r.

via TweetDeck

Writing a script. You have been warned.

via TweetDeck

Arranging my whoring schedule with @engochick. No, that sounded wrong.

via TweetDeck

Now I know I needed to get plenty of billable work through February, BUT JESUS FUCKING WEPT!

via TweetDeck

RT @djsflynn: Social media explained… yfrog.com/octefldj [It’s true, this explains everything.]

via TweetDeck

Right, so the email I’ve received in the last two hours would indicate that the IT PR industry is now operating at full strength for 2012.

via TweetDeck

@adm_76 Oh the branding for community radio is important, I think. But it does focus on the broadcasts. The internet is big now.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

@adm_76 Ah, well, being on the internet I figured the live stream was sufficiently global for everyone. Do I have to come down there?

via TweetDeck

50-minute phone calls. They’re good for you, right?

via TweetDeck

@Margarita890 Oh I’m not sure I’ve necessarily done things the best way! My media career has been… odd.

via TweetDeck

@Margarita890 Ah, I’ve been “doing media” for 30+ years now. “Can you comment on X?” Sure, call me back in 15 minutes.

via TweetDeck in reply to Margarita890

I should’ve said that @AttardMon reporting from the engine desk of a Russian tank was one of my wet-making media moments.

via TweetDeck

So, I just blurted some instant opinions on @TheGlobalMail to Radio @2ser for “The Wire”, on air at 1800 AEDT at bit.ly/duk0ul

via TweetDeck

@Margarita890 I’ll find out momentarily. My phone is about to ring and a young journalist will interview me about said new opinions.

via TweetDeck in reply to Margarita890

Forming opinions. And quickly.

via TweetDeck

RT @sarahcuda: i won’t be content until my entire twitter feed is full of pandovatars [Easier just to get a dildo, you know…]

via TweetDeck

RT: “Patch Monday” podcast: “Society 5: our democratic digital future” with @willozap bit.ly/xkdVQU

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar Nah, this isn’t a fully-stocked bunker kind of place, it’s more your backpacker in shallow bushland grave environment.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

I hear thunder. The sky is starting to darken. I might sloth at the cottages rather than go into the village. Indecision.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin True, I’ve kinda figured out what the next couple of weeks are likely to look like. All shall be restored, fear not.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

I’ve just noticed that my life has exploded down the entire length of this large 4-bedroom house. Must clean before @R_Chirgwin notices.

via TweetDeck

Oh. If I’m having lunch up in Wentworth Falls, I suppose I should actually go there before lunch is over. That requires pants too, I guess.

via TweetDeck

No, @jonoabroad, I think lorikeets ARE coked-up avian hipsters.

via TweetDeck

Also, Walkley Freelance [Journalist] Conference is in Melbourne on 30-31 March. bit.ly/wSMUnm

via TweetDeck

Entries now open for new “Walkley Award for Best Freelance Journalist”, pass it on. bit.ly/A2RchF

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad Hah! Lorikeets are very social birds, lots of calls that bind the group. /cc @michaelneale

via TweetDeck

@i386 I lived near a colony of lorikeets, learned to distinguish their calls. Their calls have purpose. /cc @jonoabroad @michaelneale

via TweetDeck

I am ignoring your sarcasm about Safer Internet Day, @jeamland.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar Yes. Ridiculous. Because an audio production workstation called “Reaper” is so much more sensible.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar I use Reaper, which does pretty much everything that ProTools does.

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@michaelneale Actually, the lorikeet rain warning is 10 mins in Sydney but it seems to be longer up here. Half an hour?

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Ah, just heard some lorikeets do their “It’ll start raining in 10 minutes” screech. Time to get the washing in.

via TweetDeck

Oh. So tomorrow’s Safer Internet Day? How come I never find out about that until the day before?

via TweetDeck

@willozap I just remembered my old blog post, “The really real revolutionary revolution of the Internet” bit.ly/2YkGIG

via TweetDeck in reply to willozap

The black cockatoos are being particularly rowdy this morning. That probably means it’ll rain soon.

via TweetDeck

@moldor No sign of the earbuds, but I had to get this morning’s story written first. I’ll be a’looking soon, but I have little confidence.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

@moldor Hey, I have determined that Eddie Maguire does not get paid as a director of Collingwood Football Club. So I had to drop a joke.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

Right. A draft of my article has just been sent to the editor, so his fresh eyes can point to the crap bits. Editors are a Good Thing.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Society 5: our democratic digital future” with @willozap bit.ly/xkdVQU

via TweetDeck

My story has taken a downward turn. I am Googling some information and Eddie Maguire. May God have mercy upon my soul.

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: Cider can be your reward. [It can. For I must head into Wentworth Falls for lunch once I’ve filed.]

via TweetDeck

OK, the precis has been sent to the editor. I now await his comments before doing too much more on the article. Which is due lunchtime.

via TweetDeck

I shall now begin to write. My editor wants a precis of what I’m writing before I’ve written it. So I shall do this.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin You seem to be suffering a certain cynicism today. There are pills for that.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@mattdasilva Did I not just say that I hadn’t explored @TheGlobalMail yet? I have other things to do first. I may have to slap you.

via TweetDeck in reply to mattdasilva

As an aside, I wonder what @TimNoonan will make of @TheGlobalMail, since UX is already standards-breaking.

via TweetDeck

I haven’t explored @TheGlobalMail properly yet, @timwattsau, but sites that don’t respond to my trackpad gestures to scroll piss me off.

via TweetDeck

I might also write about @TheGlobalMail, since it’s traditional to rip into a new masthead on their very first day. Poor sods.

via TweetDeck

Mon plan: Write about death of TV; lunch in Wentworth Falls; discuss evil plans with client; continue planning next 2 months; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

Thank you for your sympathy and/or useless advice, @expectproblems @bleeters @SnarkyPlatypus. I knew I could rely on you.

via TweetDeck

Annoyingly, in mid-May I cannot be in San Francisco and the Gold Coast simultaneously. I must Make a Choice.

via TweetDeck

@johnthelutheran I am suddenly getting a very different perception of your family life. Also, calling the police.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnthelutheran

RT @BundyB: And tomorrow’s [dawn] will now be overcast and horrid. [Perhaps. Then again, up here they’re still stunning.]

via TweetDeck

Always differentiate between thumbsuckers and goat-chokers, says @johnemcintyre bsun.md/ArsUC4

via TweetDeck

I am pleased to have quietly watched a truly beautiful dawn from my mountain top this morning. Tomorrow’s shall be filmed.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if I could stick a Tcl/Expect wrapper around this bloody thing… [grabs bolt cutters]

via TweetDeck

@trib And I can say that as someone who did actually study Latin at high school. It was that kind of school.

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

Food for thought: You’d need two whole Hollerith cards to hold just one tweet.

via TweetDeck

@trib I’d just do “antechinuses” myself, since I’m speaking English. Fake Latin wankery is wankery. And fake.

via TweetDeck in reply to trib

The antechinus is fucking loudly in the ceiling. I repeat, the antechinus is fucking loudly in the ceiling.

@ataraxite What have you done to cause all those flights to cancel? Have you been a bad boy? Again?

Since there is a shortage of news on the internet, we now have @TheGlobalMail theglobalmail.org

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Have you considered that your strategy of choosing shit airlines might be an error?

via TweetDeck

@BennettArron Well, Your Excellency, I trust you will treat our planet well. Also, about this pay rise…

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@BennettArron Light years ahead of Australia? Then you should be able to name three things that clearly demonstrate that alleged “fact”.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@natecochrane I would respond to your comment about “Stilgherrian Uncut” but, as it turns out, you’re too late for that.

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

@BennettArron Now I hope this doesn’t come as a shock, but has anyone ever mentioned that Wales might be a bit, you know, backward?

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

Oh. Monday? Already? Uhuh. Monday. Right. I’d like to speak to your supervisor, thanks.

via TweetDeck

Enough for one night. Thud.

via TweetDeck

@IanKath This week I’m thinking through my balance of work for the next few months. The Edict and “Stilgherrian Live” are on my mind.

via TweetDeck in reply to IanKath

@IanKath I have most of an episode of “The 9pm Edict” written, just haven’t been in the mood to record. We’ll see how this week goes.

via TweetDeck in reply to IanKath

@ireckon @stokely Stop it. You’ll make me feel old. I can remember when internet stuff was built by people who knew what they were doing.

via TweetDeck

@david_glance I’ll comment on @TheGlobalMail when I’m actually able to see it. But I tend not to do instant judgements on new media outlets.

via TweetDeck in reply to david_glance

@ireckon I’m of the opinion that any sysadmin that can’t shift stuff seamlessly isn’t actually competent. But so few understand DNS TTLs.

via TweetDeck in reply to ireckon

@purserj @TheGlobalMail Oh I’d put a holding site on a Small Server while getting the Big Server ready for prime time.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Sometimes it feels like the well-established techniques for shifting stuff around the internet with no break in service are Lost Art. I cry.

via TweetDeck

@TheGlobalMail If you’re blaming my ISP then it’s DNS caching? You didn’t reduce TTLs? That’s a bit of a trap for young players, eh?

via TweetDeck

@TheGlobalMail So if you’re all just sitting around waiting, why not just cut it live? It ain’t network TV. ;)
