@R_Chirgwin The towels are safe and dry in the dining room at Rosella Cottage. Shoosh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

BTW, @frogworth, it appears that another of @tfadp’s tweets actually NAMES the employee he’s slagging off for not wanting the buyout deal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to frogworth

@a7ndrew Thank you. I tended to write more passionate essays back then. That was four years ago? Gawd.

MT @SnarkyPlatypus: What is a “socially relevant” game? … Is it like Scrabble with bonus same sex marriage add on? [Yes. Or “HOODIE”.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I’m hoping he spent maybe $3 million on drugs and when he comes down he’ll realise how much of a cunt he looks.

via Janetter for Mac

“Games are fun. But they can be socially relevant too… We just added the word HOODIE.” Christ, give me strength! twitter.com/tfadp/status/1…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @benrhughes: sounds like he’ll be a good “cultural fit” at zynga… [And nothing says “culture” like “swab”…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to benrhughes

Oh here’s class! @tfadp is now worth squillions, but is too tight-arsed to subscribe to TIME to… read about himself. twitter.com/tfadp/status/1…

via Janetter for Mac

For that matter, whatever happened to employee confidentiality in the HR process, @tfadp? We can trust you with privacy then? Doubt it.

via Janetter for Mac

Wow, is @tfadp another of those startup-turds who looks down on any worldview other than submit-to-the-IPO cuntliness? twitter.com/#!/tfadp/statu…

bunjaree And now here’s the real rain, close lightning strikes, and sudden gusting winds. ^S

@yewenyi It’s a cable thing. ADSL loses sync and the stack has to be rebuilt. /cc @TheDanAnimal

RT @mikko: I never noticed before that Google has Really Advanced Search options: google.com/js/reallyadvan… [These are useful, worth learning.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

Switched to standby internets.

via Janetter for Mac

Whenever there’s a hint of a storm the ADSL goes AWOL.

via Cloudhopper

Internets down.

bunjaree Thunder is heard. ^S

Hasn’t anyone shot down that annoying ISS thing yet?

via Janetter for Mac

@NewtonMark Alas, that was an awfully large amount of work for very little comedy. I should go back to my audio editing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Yeah yeah the RV-6, VH-TRUJILLO … ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark I hadn’t realised you’d named your plane after Mr Trujillo.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

In iTunes update notes, I see a curious differentiation between “fixes a problem” and “addresses an issue”. Latter doesn’t do the former?

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong Ah! Sattahip is in exactly the right spot for that sort of landscape. I’ll search the satellite imagery later. Thanks!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Speaking of complex April Fools jokes, an iTunes update at 111MB. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: RT @mpesce That has got to be the most complex April Fool’s joke I’ve ever seen: microsoft.com/windowsphone/e…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@ApostrophePong Good thinking. A navy base makes sense, since it’s a DARPA project. Those low buildings on the beach below the hill a clue.

bunjaree RTA is now reporting that the Wentworth Falls traffic incident is over, but sounds like it’ll take a while for things to clear. ^S

via Janetter for Mac (retweeted on 1:08 PM, Apr 1st, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

bunjaree Just saw @Kylie_Simmonds tweet that she’s taken more than an hour to drive half-way from Lawson to Wentworth Falls, normally 8 min total. ^S

via Janetter for Mac (retweeted on 12:28 PM, Apr 1st, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

bunjaree Major traffic accident Great Western Highway east (Sydney side) of Wentworth Falls. Expect significant delays or use Bells Line of Road. ^S

RT @zzap: Be glad people you follow aren’t as stupid as these individuals i.imgur.com/jRVjs.jpg [I find it quite encouraging, actually.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zzap

Why is the Prime Minister involved in a marketing exercise for Woolworths? Is she getting free petrol coupons for life now?

via Janetter for Mac

@6564828 Yeah, a tad impractical. But it appears that something apart from the backup is hammering the external drive. I’ll leave it run.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@6564828 Ah that’s sweet! Misdiagnosing the problem, then suggesting a “solution” that means Buying More Stuff and another thing to carry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

Becoming irritated at how long it’s taking this backup to run. I would actually like to start editing this century.

OK, coffee then “Patch Monday” podcast editing. A great interview with @RidT about cyberwar being seriously over-hyped.

Explaining nature to a cretin.

RT @purserj: So we’ve got someone telling us how humourous science can be by blandly reading a script? [Writers != performers.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HappySinger

I suspect my Lebanese-Australian barber and Thai restaurateur acquaintances have a different Oz national identity, @Drag0nista

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Drag0nista

RT @Drag0nista: @stilgherrian true - but it is the white middle class national identity that is being criticised [True enough.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Drag0nista

I’m hearing a very white middle-class conversation about national identity here, @Drag0nista, or maybe I have the word order wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Drag0nista

If, @MarkTextor, Australia has a new national assertiveness and confidence, why do we still wait for cues from elsewhere?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: Amused at folks getting weird about “Girls Around Me,” even though everything it demonstrates can be done without the app.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

I do hope @RNSundayExtra mentions @JohnBirmingham’s “A Time for War: Australia as a Military Power” quarterlyessay.com/issue/time-war…

via Janetter for Mac

WTF? ABC Radio News is reporting propaganda that equates it to the Occupy movement and the Arab Spring? Jesus fucking wept!

via Janetter for Mac

Tweeting about your victory over the bacon is insufficient demonstration of hunter-gatherer masculinity.

Pro tip: To not be eaten by a shark, do not swim where the sharks are.

via Janetter for Mac

Flowers versus weeds is essentially class warfare, @RNSundayExtra.

via Janetter for Mac

I hear on @RNBBing the sign of an Ousider: pronouncing “Aldinga” like “Al Capone”. Whatever happened to SCOSE? Or listening to the talent?

via Janetter for Mac

@garystark I think it’s just the usual social thing of saying “Hey! Look what I found!” and sharing, but the style of sharing kills it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garystark

Annoyed with arsehats who destroy April Fools jokes as they pass them on. Yes, you’re clever, and thank you for ruining the fun.

Sun plan, unordered: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; 2 x blog posts; end of month administrivia; finish documentation. Poo, a work day.

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong I’ve sent you a photo of mine where I reckon the hills east of Rayong are the same as those behind the robot. Hard to tell.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

I find it curious that people can work in radio for so long and still sound like they’re stiltedly reading a script.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh no, it’s sphincter woman again.

via Janetter for Mac

So @mukimu’s “So you want to be an ethical hacker?” has FAR more “votes” than any other @zdnetaustralia story. [smirks] zdnet.com.au/so-you-want-to…
