I wasn’t aware I was obliged to provide “suitable entertainment” for random arsehats who hadn’t even bothered to say hello.

via TweetDeck

RT @ashmidalia: And this is where I click “unfollow”. For the offensiveness more than the inaccuracy. But there’s plenty of each. [Bye!]

via TweetDeck

Thanks, @CameronWatt @JonathanHepburn @chrisjrn @LucasJamesAU, that probably means this mess in salvageable.

via TweetDeck

Hypothetically speaking, does Vaseline conduct electricity?

“I’ve nominated myself as the new sheriff of the blogosphere… The Daily Mail can go fuck itself.” arseh.at/t6h

I would also like to thank Russia for trolling Eurovision so comprehensively. youtu.be/YdgbM8k_wNg

via TweetDeck

@Ausflatfish Ah, I missed that tweet in the river. I remember seeing Iranian newsreel footage of women assembling the shredded strips.

via TweetDeck in reply to Ausflatfish

Dear Ministers Bowen and Clare, we’re the richest fucking country in the world. Show a bit of fucking compassion.

via TweetDeck

Dear Ministers Bowen and Clare, any fool who can read a chart of numbers properly knows policy our end is irrelevant. Fuckwits.

via TweetDeck

Dear Ministers Bowen and Clare, YOU are the government, so YOU set policy. And the boats’ arrival is determined by the passengers’ need…

2. “Another boat as Coalition ‘turn back’ policy continues to unravel’, timestamped minutes apart.

via TweetDeck

1. HMAS Maryborough intercepts a SIEV off Ashmore Reef, 34 passengers and 3 crew aboard.

via TweetDeck

@Ausflatfish @CassPF From memory the US Tehran embassy also used strip-cut shredders, not cross-cut, which makes it rather easy.

via TweetDeck in reply to Ausflatfish

The two government media releases I just received, when combined, indicate a rather distasteful piece of opportunism behind the scenes.

via TweetDeck

RT @Telegraph: Stand by for exciting news about @Telegraph iPhone and Android apps. [No, I’ll get on with life. Tell me when you’re sorted.]

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. “Accidental headline of the year” arseh.at/t6e HT @johnthelutheran

via TweetDeck

@maninultimo Oh I take that back. It appears I was taken to a randomly-chosen .xxx registrar.

via TweetDeck in reply to maninultimo

@maninultimo I see .xxx at USD 99.99 a year. Oh. And it’s GoDaddy under the hood. There’s a problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to maninultimo

Ah! Horus 22 will be launched tomorrow around 0900 ACDT. arseh.at/qn8 Track it at arseh.at/qpc

via TweetDeck

Say what? @dotXXX says performers get a free .xxx domain name? I assume there are terms and conditions attached. Possibly other apparatus.

via TweetDeck

@CassPF Thanks, but it’s not a commiserations thing. It’s a far more sensible way to have planned it actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to CassPF

@piecritic I’m not sure that it’s about winning or losing as such… though I do feel lost.

via TweetDeck in reply to piecritic

Since I have been so unproductive this eveving, I shall be up early to write one piece before 0900 and another on the train to Sydney.

via TweetDeck

@BennettArron How do you spot them? From a distance? I didn’t think they had to wear the badges any more?

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@piecritic So, I am completely at a loss for how to respond to that tweet.

via TweetDeck in reply to piecritic

Ah, I still chuckle a little chuckle when Stratfor’s Geopolitical Weekly email arrives.

via TweetDeck

It’s like having doctors who’ve never studies anatomy, surely @piecritic @NewtonMark?

via TweetDeck

But how can people admin systems and networks when they don’t understand how anything actually works, @piecritic @NewtonMark?

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark: Geez, don’t you people know anything about UNIX virtual memory performance tuning? [Not these days. Amateurs. Sigh.]

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark Hah. No resource limits? Better strategy: swapping 0 and O in all the test data files so no-one’s assignments worked. Wasn’t me.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Mind you, I did one on uni’s CDC Cyber 173 once. Had permission to use the whole mainframe for a special project. Killed it.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Heh. I hadn’t seen a VM thrash in so long it took me ages to figure out what I was looking at.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Moving to Lion on 4GB RAM, tab-heavy browsing and multi-GB audio edits, got a few proper old school VM thrash meltdowns.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

RT: Me at @CSO_Online: “Adobe learns that security is a numbers game”, quoting @bradarkin arseh.at/t5o

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark My MacBook Pro has no vmstat. [sulks] Or do I have to sudo it?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@SnarkyPlatypus @jg_rat There’s a reason I’m Google’s #1 result for “neocon sex kitten”.

via TweetDeck

@jg_rat Hah! I don’t know that the readers of Good Weekend are quite ready for me. Maybe small doses to begin with. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to jg_rat

@externallylaws @SnarkyPlatypus Yeah that’s what I meant. I could have worded it better but I am tired and confused.

via TweetDeck

Oh, did I see somewhere that Fairfax needs a new columnist who can say “cunt” a lot? Hello!

via TweetDeck

@purserj There’s been no talk of sponsorship for the podcast, no, but I might explore than for series 2.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

@fat_asian Given that we’re about 100km apart, this seems unlikely.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@feed_the_chooks IF I FIND OUT WHERE TO BUY ONE I WILL LET YOU KNOW BUT I AM SURE THEY ARE EASY TO FIND IN A BIG CITY.

via TweetDeck in reply to feed_the_chooks

I don’t think it’s “arrangement”, @ataraxitem. It’s when you know it is 100% on, should you choose, but it just hasn’t happened yet.

via TweetDeck

RT @feed_the_chooks: @stilgherrian WERE YOU GIFTED A SEX VOUCHER FROM A RELATIVE? JESUS WEPT. [NO I WAS NOT FFS PAY PROPER ATTENTION!]

via TweetDeck

Now I’ve forgotten why I even asked. You people have deliberately confused me. You are most unkind.

via TweetDeck

“Fucktingency” has its charms, @SnarkyPlatypus, but I’m sure there’s an existing word. Isn’t “booty call” when it’s on, @externallylaws?

via TweetDeck

RT @michaelneale: I’m thinking some kind of gift voucher from an open minded relative. [That’s more than a bit wrong.]

via TweetDeck

I think it’s only “fuck buddy” if it’s happened at least once, @BobGrrl. No, not “marriage”, @patrickkelso @sleemol or middle age @jg_rat

via TweetDeck

What’s the term for when you’ve got a standing invitation for a root if either of you can be bothered getting around to it ever?

via TweetDeck

@VivicaDelicious I don’t mean to sound cranky (well, not yet) but I don’t know how the event’s politics / machinations work. Sorry.

via TweetDeck in reply to VivicaDelicious

@VivicaDelicious @bob_bain Maybe your question is best addressed to the event organisers. It’s a media launch. I was invited. I am media.

via TweetDeck in reply to VivicaDelicious

@bob_bain Tomorrow night’s Sexpo launch is a media event and cocktail reception, not for general public. Sexpo runs Thu-Sun.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bob_bain

Hey @firstdogonmoon have you seen this tweet? arseh.at/t67

via TweetDeck

The image of Gina Rinehart eating her own young is appalling, @SammiMarks, and we must never tell @firstdogonmoon. She is a delicate swan!

via TweetDeck

Gosh this whole Gina Rinehart legal battle thing is the tale of a caring, thoughtful mother, isn’t it. Not. arseh.at/lgm

via TweetDeck

So it would appear that @firstdogonmoon is living the dream again. “THEY HAVE MADE ME THEIR KING” indeed. arseh.at/lgm

via TweetDeck

All I know about The Great Porn Debate, @fat_asian, is that stars Ron Jeremy plus “Craig Gross from the XXXChurch”.

via TweetDeck

At this time tomorrow night I’ll be well into tweeting from the Sexpo Sydney launch and The Great Porn Debate.

via TweetDeck

Oh. I’m meant to be writing.

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting Erm, I’m after specific WordPress hosting services packaged as such. Next layer up. Like @wpengine or @Pagely. Am I unclear?

via TweetDeck

Ah! Federal Court appeal of NRL and AFL and sport generally versus Optus TV Now continues tomorrow morning.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @TaraMacca I will say that the “84,000 attempts” number being bandied about is meaningless bullshit, currently writing about it.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @TaeraMacca And if you don’t trust my word on that, here’s Interpol’s. arseh.at/t5z

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @TaraMacca So if The Hypothetical Brisbane Dentist had one dodgy directory, all access to their whole domain gets blocked.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark @TaraMacca So you know the Interpol blocklist is domain-based? Accessing any file on a blocked domain gets counted, AFAIK…

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Thank you, @wpengine, I’ll investigate your WordPress hosting in due course.

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting (Rolling my own WordPress installs on a generic server is something I can do myself. In ten minutes. On my own server.)

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting No, I’m talking dedicated WordPress hosting, which usually means running WordPress MU and having wp-uploads on a CDN.

via TweetDeck

AVG has released “A Common Sense Guide to Working on the Move”, a security guide. Ain’t read it yet but arseh.at/t5y

via TweetDeck

@SexpoAustralia Is there an “official” hashtag for tweeting from the event? Or shall we just go with ?

via TweetDeck

Gerry Harvey explains why he DOES get online retail. Despite all the evidence to the contrary. arseh.at/t5x

via TweetDeck

@maninultimo That seems to have done the trick. You should have the relevant XXX details now.

via TweetDeck in reply to maninultimo

@maninultimo Twitter wishes to disagree about who’s following whom. I shall now put a bullet in the head of a random passer-by.

via TweetDeck in reply to maninultimo

@purserj Thanks for the offer. Appreciated. But re-doing the workflows for the Edict, well, no time for that. Plus the interview is daytime.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

@maninultimo I would love to DM you but, you know, following.

via TweetDeck in reply to maninultimo

Fasthosts in the UK offers WordPress hosting. Does anyone in Australia do that as a proper commercial service? Please email me if you do.

via TweetDeck

Pre-recording a chat to edit and sweeten later is far less hectic than stage managing a live production, @purserj @jonoabroad.

via TweetDeck

It’s not creating a live audio stream that’s the issue, @purserj @jonoabroad, but planning and scripting, and the live mix.

via TweetDeck

Sadly “The 9pm Edict” can’t be live, @jonoabroad, as that requires significantly more organisation. Not this episode, anyway. Patience.

via TweetDeck

Goodness me some people get tetchy, don’t they!

via TweetDeck

Also, on Thursday night my special guest on “The 9pm Edict” podcast is Mr Ron Jeremy. arseh.at/t41

via TweetDeck

You’re right, I will certainly need a special avatar for that event.

via TweetDeck

@engochick @nehadk I’m often days behind in dealing with email, so I don’t mind a call if it’s becoming urgent.

via TweetDeck

Tomorrow night I’ll be live tweeting from the Sexpo Sydney launch and The Great Porn Debate. Because I can.

via TweetDeck

RT @engochick: It is. “Did you get my email? Ra di ra di ra.” [Exactly that. And asking about email from just a few hours ago? Hah!]

via TweetDeck

It would appear that today is Australian PR People Confirm Your Schedules Day.

via TweetDeck

No, @purserj @NinePerth, why would I look at a Perth TV station’s website when I’m not in Perth and don’t watch TV? ARE YOU MAD?

via TweetDeck

RT @mumbletwits: Bob Carr likes to talk about Tony Abbott. Should fit right in.

via TweetDeck

Good Lord! @NinePerth sells sponsorship rights on their tweets! End Times, I tell you, End Times! arseh.at/t5u

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… I want to get a haircut before tomorrow night but I don’t have time to get to Bangkok and back. What shall I do?

via TweetDeck

Oh, does this hand feed me? [bite!]

via TweetDeck

So CBSi is looking for a Senior Web Designer in Sydney. They say “rock star” but they’re not really complete arsehats. arseh.at/t5s

via TweetDeck

Cat, meet pigeons.

via TweetDeck

In the interests of trolling, my “Gay marriage an irrelevant sideshow” from 2010. arseh.at/t5r

via TweetDeck

How dare you let these so-called “facts” interfere with my awesomely clever satire, @dobes!

via TweetDeck

Oh good, there’s a voiceover job going in Queensland. Must apply.

via TweetDeck

I wish to congratulate “Danger 5” for developing the concept of Nazi Super-Soldiers controlled via haiku.

via TweetDeck

Some PR people don’t read my tweets starting “Dear PR People”. Sadness.

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark SSL certificates aren’t worth the cow they’re written on. Ask the Iranians. /cc @cameronreilly

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@ApostrophePong @jonrussell Don’t feel bad for not measuring up to Wolfram, possibly the greatest mathematician since Sir Isaac Newton.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Robert Gottliebsen reckons it’s Ice Age time for retail dinosaurs who don’t get the internet. arseh.at/t5q

via TweetDeck

@jonrussell @ApostrophePong It reminds me how much data we ALREADY have that no-one ever looks at because they don’t know how.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonrussell

@ApostrophePong Oh yes. And here’s Wolfram’s blog post with many more charts and the background. arseh.at/t4b

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Trying to understand the geometry of saucepan lids. Circles are so confusing.

via TweetDeck

So. Many. Towels.

Dear PR People inviting me to many meetings and things next week, I hope to have my plans sorted by this time tomorrow. Please be patient.

@tweeveetv So, please don’t use @ariannahuff and “fetishisation” in the same sentence. Please.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweeveetv

@GeordieGuy @GreenJ Add “[$]” to the link’s title attribute, problem solved I suppose. [shrugs] I don’t find “[click] Oh. [back]” a burden.

via TweetDeck in reply to GordyPls

@GreenJ @GeordieGuy Besides, people “pay” for every site they visit by having the shit tracked out of them anyway. Why focus on money?

via TweetDeck

@GeordieGuy @GreenJ And what’s so, so terrible about people discovering they might have to pay their way? Culture of entitlement much?

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ The question is the same as whether you mention the titles of books or magazines people have to pay for. Sure, link away!

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

So, the new Sales Report and Purchase Report Top 10 widgets in @saasu are very handy. Thanks, guys.

Me at @CSO_Online: “Adobe learns that security is a numbers game”, quoting @bradarkin arseh.at/t5o

via TweetDeck

@garystark @joshgnosis Well the case hinged on the “trade” part of “trademark”. BBC traded using that mark, the Met did not, nor others.

via TweetDeck

@garystark @joshgnosis You are, alas, wrong. The Met challenged the BBC’s trademark registration and lost. A decade ago.

via TweetDeck in reply to garystark

Tue plan, part B: Wash more towels; clear some minor client webby work; write another @CSO_Australia story; detailed planning a week ahead.

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis Both the word TARDIS and its visual appearance are BBC registered trademarks. But hey, they could license it.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

Story filed for @CSO_Online, finally. That was far, far more annoying to do than it should’ve been. Stand well clear, people!

via TweetDeck

You and me both.

via TweetDeck

Twitter buys Posterous? arseh.at/t5n I see a strategy emerging here. But I must not think about it any more just yet.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan, part A: Complete article for @CSO_Australia, quickly; develop Tue plan, part B.

via TweetDeck

Also confused about biscuits.

via TweetDeck

Confused. I am meant to be asleep.

via TweetDeck

@OliviaIllyria “Whoopie pies”? I see what they are but the name seems to belong to something else.

via TweetDeck in reply to OliviaIllyria

MT @misskylie77: these are macarons: arseh.at/t5i [Oh gotcha, the things you put under chair legs to stop them hurting the carpet.]

via TweetDeck

ALL THESE WOMEN ARE TALKING TO ME ABOUT WEIRD BISCUITS AND I AM CONFUSED AND A LITTLE EXCITED.

via TweetDeck

@swearyanthony That is a perfectly grammatical utterance I don’t understand your problem with it or are you just taking the piss?

via TweetDeck in reply to swearyanthony

@daev This is kind of the closest I have up here. flic.kr/p/bAbk62 So what am I looking for again?

via TweetDeck in reply to daev

WHAT EVEN IS A MACARON?

via TweetDeck

So the women have all said yes cupcakes are a thing and the men have said either no or the women will say yes or yes but he’s gay OK thanks.

via TweetDeck

@daev I thought cupcakes was 2009. Apparently I didn’t get the memo. Are memos still a thing?

via TweetDeck in reply to daev

I think the whole Lent thing is meant to apply when you’re conscious, @franksting, it’s something to do with Free Will.

via TweetDeck

Cupcakes are still a thing?

via TweetDeck

MT @franksting: I need to give something up for Lent. [Self-righteousness?]

via TweetDeck

Also, altogether too much opium.
