I love it when people discuss security or privacy failures as if they’re branding and perception issues.

via TweetDeck

Or even worse, those arsehats who RT every little crumb of a positive comment they get. Annoying fuckin’ attention-whores.

via TweetDeck

Oh please don’t keep referring that tweet to @mpesce. Oddly enough, he wasn’t the inspiration.

via TweetDeck

@NetPresident Really? I still think that was a rather poor episode. I’ll have to re-listen when there’s a bit of distance.

via TweetDeck in reply to NetPresident

Q: How many futurists does it take to change a lightbulb. A: I have a new book.

via TweetDeck

I’m so glad we have the Daily Telegraph otherwise privileged self-righteous outrage junkies would have to roam the streets lynching niggers.

via TweetDeck

I’m sure the rising stabbiness levels can be countered with MOAR WINE. I’m sure of it.

via TweetDeck

RT @expectproblems: My hands are shaking from the clap.

via TweetDeck

Battles the Anzacs won, @RealNickHodge? The Battle of Brisbane? arseh.at/sgx /cc @purserj

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: @RealNickHodge Greece is a hole into which German money is poured. [Money, and dead paratroopers, from memory.]

via TweetDeck

@peterhau I particularly like how you’ve said they work fine when you don’t even know my requirements. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to peterhau

@jeamland Yes well… glad you stopped that. But this is for digital asset management, not photo manipulation.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

So Microsoft killed Expression Media for Mac. I guess that means buying in to the whole Aperture vs Lightroom wankfest.

via TweetDeck

@Wyld It would be physically impossible to remain that mad for that long.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wyld

@chrisjrn Oh I’m thinking of all sorts of additions / changes new contributions to the podcast. Stay, as they say, tuned.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@chrisjrn Oh good. Stevedoring is still in the to-be-written list. It’s good. The Prahran segment wasn’ what I’d originally planned but hey.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Replug: I did actually post “The 9pm Edict” episode 17A earlier in the week. Apparently not total crap. arseh.at/sgv

via TweetDeck

@Wyld Thank you. But 1. I thought that was actually a poor episode; and 2. I’ve known your good lady for a long time and she’s insane.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wyld

Exactly that, @WarWraith @bacco007, the engineers turn weight loss into a systems optimisation problem.

via TweetDeck

This Jacob’s Cereek Reserve Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2010 is acceptable. It almost makes up for not being able to do this rebuild tonight.

via TweetDeck

Right. Well clearly the only answer to that little glitch is to open the pinot noir.

via TweetDeck

OH, ABC Radio, on helping people lose weight: “The best men to work with are engineers because they’re obsessive-compulsives.”

via TweetDeck

So, my plan for the evening is to ensure I have all my software licenses recorded before wiping this computer and reinstalling everything.

via TweetDeck

Wondering whether I should go to the effort of lighting a fire. Only going down to 12C tonight. Hardly seems worth it.

via TweetDeck

@elisedavidson Oh that is sacrilege, young lady! At the ABC, cricket has priority. This shall not be questioned.

via TweetDeck in reply to elisedavidson

Poor @domknight, limited to the digital radio [is that even a thing?] and the streams, sounds a tiny bit desperate for audience.

via TweetDeck

Goodness me. Things appear. Then they disappear. The internet is rather special.

via TweetDeck

@skywake Ah no, I wasn’t referring to NBNCo’s comments, but to the political discussion of “enough satellite”. /cc @david_glance

via TweetDeck in reply to skywake

@R_Chirgwin Yeah it’s been miserably overcast and I didn’t run the generator last night. 46.4V just then before I went all motorised.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

So, the next thing I’m doing involves a jerry-can full of petrol. This pleases me no end.

via TweetDeck

RT @captain_beef: Liquorland - the Starbucks of booze [I never thought it’d be possible to genuinely insult Starbucks, but there it is.]

via TweetDeck

Back at Bunjaree Cottages, having survived the brief period of . Let’s get the overnight energy sources sorted next, shall we?

via TweetDeck

Well, in the Mountains one makes do.

via TweetDeck

The ignorant youth at the checkout is at least cheerful and friendly and, if I ha e maybe one more drink, of passably acceptable RI.

via TweetDeck

Liquorland Katoomba files a semillon sauvignon blanc under “red wine”. Expert advice should be available then.

via TweetDeck

People eat this shit? Christ, where’s the bottle shop?

via TweetDeck

“Self serve chickens.” Do your own jokes, folks!

via TweetDeck

Yes yes I know I’m in a supermarket and this won’t end well.

via TweetDeck

Look, mate, you could manoeuvre that shopping trolley far more quickly if you rid it of all that bullshit crap you’ve loaded it with.

via TweetDeck

Obviously I approve of kangaroo sausages as a concept, but “Kanga Bangas”? FFS grow up!

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Quick shopping; cab back Bunjaree Cottages; run generator; light fire; get on with whatever it was I promised myself I’d do.

via TweetDeck

Hang on, did I just see @abc730 start down the path that eventually leads to a police media release that includes the word “grooming”?

via TweetDeck

Today on “I’m an Instant Fucking Expert”, we are all satellite communications capacity planners.

via TweetDeck

@david_glance Oh FFS don’t introduce actual technical issues into the discussions!

via TweetDeck in reply to david_glance

MT @mpesce: And Santorum has won Colorado. [And the second-placegetter wins TWO Montanas.]

via TweetDeck

RT @R_BurtonBradley: Do those vapour inhaler things work for smokers? Anyone know? [Depends how much meth you put in ‘em.]

via TweetDeck

I wonder when in the yes/no reportage of this new satellite thing someone will publish some actual traffic statistics and projections.

via TweetDeck

Jesus wept. Just wiped sideways by @edhusicMP’s tweet. “Speech in tribute”? That means… Fark.

via TweetDeck

RT @jonoabroad: Cash is 3, money is 5 *cough* [Oh dear, @nswpolice. BTW, I don’t click thru to Facebook. Zuckerberg need not know we chat.]

via TweetDeck

@nswpolice Um, Officer! Officer! That’s only 4.

via TweetDeck in reply to nswpolice

@ScaredyCat44 Now what did the original tweet say?

via TweetDeck in reply to ScaredyCat44

What’s a “George Monbiot”? Sounds like something a Victorian-era cable-laying ship dredged up mid-Atlantic and was exhibited at the Academy.

via TweetDeck

STOP ASKING ME QUESTIONS. YOU DIDN’T ENTER IN TIME. YOU DON’T WIN. END OF FUCKING STORY!

via TweetDeck

Sadly for you, @ScaredyCat44, I’ve read a transcript of @TurnbullMalcolm’s presser. That is not accurate summary. And entries closed 1500.

via TweetDeck

No, @jonoabroad, the deadline has passed. You ALL lose. Anyway, there is no wine. @dobes, you can sod off n’all.

via TweetDeck

Number of tweets received summarising @TurnbullMalcolm’s presser for a chance of q bottle of wine: 0. Fuck the lot of you.

via TweetDeck

RT @daev: Self control: The only way to survive in this world dominated by idiots. [Oh dear boy, that is not the way! Give in to the rage!]

via TweetDeck

Using slightly inappropriate sexual innuendo in an email to a major government instrumentality. And they love it, the bitches.

via TweetDeck

Yes, there really are @FatherBob Bobbleheads. $29.95 each. Sigh. arseh.at/sgo HT@martin_english

via TweetDeck

Why does the government keeping issuing media releases about what Tony Abbott says? Isn’t that sucking themselves into his framing?

via TweetDeck

“Asteroid cream”? Oh well played, Android!

via TweetDeck

The man at the next table is explaining in a little too much detail the condition that the asteroid cream managed to fix.

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @kim_weatherall. Sportsfolk crashing through the laid-out ALRC process shows zero respect for “best & fairest” traditions.

via TweetDeck

@Margarita890 You understand NYC? I’ve never been there, but I understand that’d be quite an achievement! ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to Margarita890

@R_Chirgwin Or, “The world is changing! Make it stop! We need you to make things never change so we don’t ever have to evolve.”

via TweetDeck

@Margarita890 Ah yeah, a lot of aoparently-cryptic tweets will reflect what I’m seeing in my own unique timeline. Also very localised.

via TweetDeck in reply to Margarita890

Trouble understanding NRL / AFL / Criket response to Optus thing? Remember sportsfolk aren’t chosen for intellect or respecting others.

via TweetDeck

One day, Certain Large Employers will realise employees are just that, not slaves. Online interactions aren’t just about work.

via TweetDeck

NRL, AFL, Criket try to bully govt into rush decision on copyright? arseh.at/sgk But review is about to start! arseh.at/sgl

via TweetDeck

SOPA/PIPA fail, studios try anti-piracy ‘charm offensive’. arseh.at/sgj

Heading to Katoomba for lunch. Best tweet summarising @TurnbullMalcolm’s presser (my choice) by 1500 AEDT wins a bottle of wine. Tag

via TweetDeck

RT @AusLawReform: Professor Jill McKeough appointed as ALRC Commissioner for Inquiry bit.ly/xWhTfX

via TweetDeck

@zdnetaustralia Your challenge, should you choose to accept it, is to headline a story about contracts that doesn’t use “inks”.

via TweetDeck in reply to zdnetaustralia

As an aside, whoever said that you can’t use TweetDeck with one hand was misinformed.

via TweetDeck

People of Earth, brace yourselves! I. Am. Getting. Out. Of. Bed.

via TweetDeck

Bah, @R_Chirgwin! Any journalist who can’t write an interesting story about space technology and the future should kill themselves now.

via TweetDeck

Christ, if I see any more of these tweets from the PM’s presser then I’ll end up drinking two bottles of win for lunch and writing an Edict.

via TweetDeck

Dear Apple, the new iCal app shipped with OS X Lion is an unworkable piece of shit. Love, Stilgherrian.

via TweetDeck

So if the Press Gallery can’t ask the PM intelligent, informed questions about the NBN satellites, WHAT THE FUCK ARE THEY FOR?

That earlier tweet about 1000 and perhaps getting out of bed? Please RT, updating the referenced time to 1100.

via TweetDeck

Dear Universe, when someone tweets something or even flags it as news, it doesn’t mean they’re “shocked” or “surprised” by it.

via TweetDeck

Over-active censorware isn’t a “shock”, @posty, I never said it was. Question is how @QantasAirways responds to the problem.

via TweetDeck

“Fair go”, @Matt_Phipps? @QantasAirways knows problem now. I said it wasn’t a good look. I’m sure they’ll fix. /cc @dananimal @aussexparty

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong What am I looking at in this picture you posted? arseh.at/sg7

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Surely @QantasAirways wouldn’t be web-blocking the @aussexparty’s membership form? Blocking political activity? Not a good look.

via TweetDeck

Wed plan: 2 x blog posts; lunch in Katoomba or Lawson or Laura; webby client project planning; clear comms backlog; evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

So, it’s 1000. I should probably get out of bed.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. Just catching up with the silly Sky News social media guidelines. arseh.at/sg5 @jayrosen_nyu nails it. arseh.at/sg6

via TweetDeck

RT @R_Chirgwin: Loral is one of the biggies in satellite build, like Hughes, etc. NewSat’s complaint isn’t relevant to who builds the birds.

via TweetDeck

@feed_the_chooks I’d also like to personally thank you for keeping the phrase “feeding the chooks” alive.

via TweetDeck in reply to feed_the_chooks

@feed_the_chooks “Conditionality”? I for one would like to see that used in a sentence. A long sentence.

via TweetDeck in reply to feed_the_chooks

RT @chrisjrn: Let me guess, this is Conroy’s new Fibre-to-the-Low-Earth-Orbit scheme? [Well, space elevators arseh.at/sg4 are go.]

via TweetDeck

Loral Space and Comms [who?] wins $620m contract to build NBN satellites, writes @Davidramli arseh.at/sg3

via TweetDeck

True, it lacked “leverage” and “synergies”, @chrisjrn @mwyres @purserj @KathyReid. Well played. /cc @rlaadvisory

via TweetDeck

I just saw someone use “cloud”, “webinar” and “prioritise” all in the one tweet! Are you off your meds, @rladvisory?

via TweetDeck

You know, @chrisjrn @yewenyi, a Kickstarter-like funding of specific journalism projects is something I’d thought of doing this year…

via TweetDeck

Has someone let @abcmarkscott out of his pen again? There will be tears before bedtime, I tell you…

via TweetDeck

“Apple, Facebook, and how ‘open’ went out of style in tech” at @TechRepublic arseh.at/sg2 Ping @piawaugh

via TweetDeck

RT @yewenyi: You should offer yourself on ebay to get the money… [Or crowdsource funding? Podcast from RSA as branded entertainment?]

via TweetDeck

My avatars are never explained, @hortovanyi. Sorry.

via TweetDeck

RT @paulwallbank: I think Masters’ main point is how difficult it is to stuff all the AFL & NRL hysterical talking points into one article.

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: From reading his article I think his key whinge is “big business will make less money”. The kids angle is such a furphy.

via TweetDeck

You mean, @purserj, things like US Major Baseball League putting ALL games online in HD for $25? /cc @BernardKeane

via TweetDeck

@FutureSport Maybe my coffee is failing me, but I can’t figure out which stuff on that page you’re drawing my attention to.

via TweetDeck in reply to FutureSport

DrRimmer The role of copyright law is not, and has never been, to provide corporate welfare for the purveyors of sporting spectacles.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:30 AM, Feb 8th, 2012 via TweetDeck)

I refer to the massive RSA Concerence on security, @stufromoz. arseh.at/sg1 Microsoft paid my way last year.

via TweetDeck

Dear Internet, you still haven’t provided funding for me to go to the RSA Conference yet. Just so you know…

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane Yes, Roy seems to confuse “Without $millions football will suffer” with “sports bureaucrats and parasites will suffer”.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

Goodness. @smh rolls out the great Roy Masters to counterpoint my football-on-TV piece, and the commenters savage him. arseh.at/sg0
