Oh look! “The 9pm Edict” episode 18. arseh.at/spd Ping @en_gy

This uploading malarkey seems to be taking somewhat longer than expected.

@2FBS Precisely. I choose tools that make sense / seem useful for me. But I still speak out against stuff I think it wrong. /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS “Just responding badly in some areas to change”? I understand your point, but disagree. There’s a strategy at play. /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS There are more choices than give in to everything or live in a cave. Presenting it as all or nothing is bullshit IMO. /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS I don’t think I’ve ever pitched Facebook as THE bogeyman. But I’ll admit to inconsistency in the tools I use. /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS Forgive me if I’m misreading you. It’s been a long week.

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS Nothing to do with “bored” for me. It was Facebook’s unethical behaviour. arseh.at/7g arseh.at/sp4 /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS So what sort of response would have been acceptable? I’m genuinely trying to understand why you’re having a go at me.

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS It’s not about appearing cool, bashing or sneering. I happen to think that Facebook is an ill-advised path. [shrugs]

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@2FBS I’d take your comments more seriously if you didn’t fold in the “self appointed intelligentsia” etc bullshittery. :/ /cc @Colvinius

via TweetDeck in reply to 2FBS

@Colvinius Hah! You shouldn’t encourage me, Sir! That way madness lies…

Me at @CSO_Australia: “Mobile security a ‘game-changer’ for Aussie telcos: Analyst” arseh.at/sp3

via TweetDeck

Hah! Business mag wants to know how people have increased their web traffic. arseh.at/sp2 “Use the c-word in your headline”, right?

via TweetDeck

This thunderstorm is causing merry hell in my wireless broadband internets thingy.

via TweetDeck

But that said, @TheLoudestVoice, I did suggest to someone earlier that I would drink wine before finding out about the new iThingy.

via TweetDeck

Good thought, @TheLoudestVoice, the whole “messaging to work around telco costs” thing is a fun little topic. /cc @Radio2UE

via TweetDeck

A bit of jealousy about the photographs, @chrisjrn @tweetingtechno @nomadiquemc @oberonsghost?

via TweetDeck

Wondering what piece of tech news to talk about on @Radio2UE tomorrow for 5 minutes. Any suggestions? (Not swimmers and televisions.)

via TweetDeck

Ah. Apparently he is a swimmer and he will help televisions, somehow.

via TweetDeck

Why is Samsung sending me photographs of scantily-clad athletically-built men?

via TweetDeck

@JFlamestar @Wyld Thanks, Mark. But James, you’ll be right… ;) youtu.be/ZCldL3q4u-Q

@R_Chirgwin Am Banksia Hütte, alles ist in Ordnung. [But there’s a deepish puddle on the main track in, photo to follow.]

via TweetDeck

@iiNet Yeah I already tried a known-good power socket. It is as I suspected. Thanks for your help.

via TweetDeck in reply to iiNet

@iiNet We’ve got zero lights. Zero activity. I did smell a tiny bit of burnt electricity. Does either the power supply or unit have a fuse?

via TweetDeck in reply to iiNet

Story filed for @CSO_Australia. One task down.

via TweetDeck

Assessing priorities: 1. Cider. 2. Finish and file story. 3. Damage control.

via TweetDeck

As soon as the rain lightens up a bit, I suppose I’d better wander around the cottages and do a damage control report.

via TweetDeck

@iiNet I don’t suppose you could point me to a troubleshooting procedure to see if a BoBLite was fried by lightning down the phone copper?

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale I have the maximum 12GB/month that Telstra will provision to a phone. It’ll do me until we find another router.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Also, in the 2m dash from cab to verandah, I got completely saturated, This is a BIG storm.

via TweetDeck

Hey @R_Chirgwin, a lightning strike 50m from Rosella Cottage appears to have just fried the BoB Lite. It smells of burnt electricity.

via TweetDeck

Lightning has knocked out Wentworth Falls’ power. Meanwhile at Bunjaree Cottages, solar FTW!

via TweetDeck

Big raindrops. Which would be nice, except I’m sitting with my shopping waiting for a cab. And there is no cab.

via TweetDeck

@andrewdotnich Yes, the amazing thing about the Kuala Lumpur monorail is that it’s actually useful!

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

Blame Apple for all the things.

via TweetDeck

I have a sudden urge to ride Kuala Lumpur’s monorail. Alas, I am not in Kuala Lumpur.

RT @leslienassar: There should be a Walkley for fact-checking. [Hear hear!]

MT @zdnetaustralia: AFL set to apply for a .brand top-level domain bit.ly/wyj4Ww [So THAT’S how they waste the $153m rights fee…]

via TweetDeck

I have just performed an activity called fact-checking. It has, as it turns out, prevented me from significant goosery.

via TweetDeck

RT @firstdogonmoon: I’M BEING SILENCED! [‘Bout fuckin’ time.]

via TweetDeck

OK, so I am writing this thing now and not being distracted by you.

@expectproblems Did you notice? You’re two days ahead of the Guardian! arseh.at/sop

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Does someone need to go around to Qantas’ IP lawyers and slap them about with the concept of fair dealing for parody and satire?

via TweetDeck

@charispalmer Indeed. While the original plan was for “a few weeks”, it’s been over a year now. @R_Chirgwin and I have found a win-win deal.

via TweetDeck in reply to charispalmer

@charispalmer Awwww, surely just stepping onto the verandah is still kinda indoors? But you have a lovely, lovely spot there!

via TweetDeck in reply to charispalmer

@charispalmer Oh that IS lovely. I take it back. Then again, flic.kr/p/bnMfRV

Explain to me again why PowerPoint needs to accept incoming network connections?

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad I didn’t read the article. I was at the presentation.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@michaelneale @jonoabroad Well there’s the flaw in your plan. You can’t make me do that.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale @jonoabroad So did you read the article, you guys?

via TweetDeck

@jonoabroad The telcos are indeed, as you put it, on struggle street. Just like the banks. Poor things.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad No, it’s not that growth only comes from new customers. It’s also that the ARPU is already high in Australia, we won’t pay more.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

The mobile telco sector is about to hit some tough times in Australia. Growth less than 1%? Buggerama! arseh.at/sos

via TweetDeck

Oh. The new new Twitter. Yes, I see what you mean.

@yeebok If you go to the arseh.at website the lovely @thepatus has provided instructions on how to make it work in various Twitter clients.

via TweetDeck in reply to yeebok

“Is it time to leave Facebook?” asks the Guardian. arseh.at/sop What took you so long, asks Stilgherrian.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Minor urgent webby work; write for @CSO_Australia; shopping; re-plan planning things that got needed to be replanned; quiet night.

via TweetDeck

I do think it’s rather lovely for @AusLawReform to RT my things and leave the arseh.at URLs intact. What a lovely government we have.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @EnsignR Ah well, there I go, forgetting to notice the old halting problem. Let me re-listen to that and adjust reality later.

via TweetDeck

@swearyanthony @purserj My Google+ account was/is “suspended” rather than wiped out. I am not really sure what that means.

via TweetDeck

And here we are at a little thing I have decided to call “Friday”. Whacko.
