@cinnamonshelper @nzJayZee Thanks, glad you found the podcast of interest. Hmmm… time to re-pimp. /cc @RidT

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Fantasy book series should never be more than 5 books long anyway. [s/5/3/]

@Glebe2037 No problems. iTunes tries to be too smart about RSS feeds. I’ve seen those bad time readings before when updating the file.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Glebe2037

@Glebe2037 A replacement MP3 file was uploaded later, but same length ~45min. Dunno where it gets 1h+ from.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Glebe2037

The word “inspiring” is going to be used excessively tonight, I can tell.

RT @leslienassar: Why does the town in need to be saved? Is it of particular strategic importance? [EP’s granny’s place.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@ataraxite Possibly there is more than Nazi. I am not an expert on such things.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m getting so confused by all this.

via Janetter for Mac

The Archbishop of Canterbury is a Nazi? I assume that’s on Sunday 30 May?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @m_jns: OH: “I support gay marriage, gay adoption, and Ian Thorpe in general.” [Hey, who needs context?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to m_jns

It appears that some @replies are not showing in Janetter. But that’s OK, because different @replies are not showing in the web interface.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I am the goose. I read “Sydney” as “Sunday” because it was close to the rest of a date-like thing. I should perhaps give up on today.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I’d assumed the Ashton Kutcher / Steve Jobs thing was an April Fools hoax. Or really bad slash.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose it’s better than the goose who just invited me to something on “Sunday 30 May”. Erm…

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve never had to render a third final version of a podcast ever before. What is it about today?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh I don’t believe this. I uploaded another wrong version of the audio file.

via Janetter for Mac

@max_au Nah, this is just “only employees have access”. That said, in IT field, I’ve NEVER had a client ask about quals of prof memberships.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to max_au

My understanding is that handsome and intelligent people are about to make me look slightly less stupid.

via Janetter for Mac

I love non-linear editing. It means you can fuck things up 30x real time.

via Janetter for Mac

This is the frustration of being a freelancer. Corporate types don’t trust us with access to the CMS. FFS, I have people’s root passwords!

via Janetter for Mac

Uploading a new version for @zdnetaustralia to post, but I don’t know when that’ll happen.

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck. There’s a mix error in the middle of the podcast, with the theme music crashing back in where it shouldn’t.

RT @kateausburn: “Boatpeople” is not a word. instagr.am/p/I6L0-yCBuo/ [No? Politics aside, It’s a clear word for a clear concept.] cc @phbarratt

RT @mpesce: Will we find you busking for train fare home? [Up here it’s more like being found unconscious at the side of a rural road.]

RT @Pollytics: There’s no such thing as the most accurate pollster unless you suspend mathematics

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Pollytics

I might as well spend my last remaining cash on more beer. It’s the only responsible thing to do.

If you were paying attention you would know which Hegel, @mrgrumpystephen.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mrgrumpystephen

Did Hegel do any porn?

RT @feed_the_chooks: I have a theory that Dockers = ALP & Eagles = Libs in terms of confidence & sense of entitlement

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feed_the_chooks

@feed_the_chooks Bugger. We didn’t really do Hegel in Computing Science. Hello, Wikipedia! /cc @MediaMook

@feed_the_chooks So you subscribe to the cyclic view of history? /cc @MediaMook

RT @lukehopewell: It’s disturbingly hot in this office. [Well that’s because YOU’RE there!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

Well that’s the way it started here, so I don’t see why you should be excused the misery.

via Janetter for Mac

Piecing together several tweets into a narrative, I have determined that my initial assumptions were probably wrong.

MT @sspencer_63: @Pollytics Biggest issue with telecommuting is upload speeds… [Prezactly. Focus on video downloads poisons the debate.]

@expectproblems I am now laughing so much it’s bringing tears to my eyes. Well played.

This IS my job, wanker. Besides, I’m busy judging people.

OH, man pointing to Carlton Dry tap: “Does anyone actually drink that shit?”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Dymaxion: New theory: transhumanists are hoping that if they have sex with enough robots, they’ll be eaten last. [But, look at them…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Dymaxion

I believe I mentioned that the day turned to shit some time back? This is how we make it better.

MT @DEEWRspokesman: Watch or join Peter Garrett’s live online school funding forum with parents today 6.30pm AEDT [Yeah bong on for that!]

Sturgeon’s Fucking Law. SIgh.

I think I need to make a stamp, “If you bury the lead one more time I will bury you!”

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong “Crab”. You mean “crab”. At least I really, really hope you do.

“Dear (Contact First Name), If you missed our Weekend sale…” Fuck, that makes me feel special.

via Janetter for Mac

Second par “reveals” that “only a few years ago” the technology in question was not as good as today. Third par? Large files are large.

Today’s stabby-making snowclone lede: “Whether you’re X or Y, Z has never been more affordable.”

OH: “Happy 21st birthday, [REDACTED]. Have a good night. Don’t get arrested.” “Ah, wouldn’t it be good to be young again!” “Fuck no!”

via Janetter for Mac

I have arrived at The Grand View just in time to order lunch. I am the only customer in the front bar.

via Janetter for Mac

As soon as this backup finishes I’m going to walk into Wentworth Falls and have a steak, I think. And then do the running-late tasks.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @garystark: Sounds like it’s saying “nooooo …. nooooo ….” so it must be Tony Rabbit. [Interesting theory, but I’d never be partisan.]

Anyone know what this chirping critter is? [MP3] stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via Janetter for Mac

@soilisms Not quite sure how that’s spam. :) We have plenty of antechinus here at Wentworth Falls. Bunjaree Cottages are in eucalypt scrub.

via Janetter for Mac

Exchanging knowing glances with an antechinus before he heads back under the shrubs.

via Janetter for Mac

@ScottRhodie It’s OK, I’m more amused than annoyed. I’m annoyed about every other shitty thing that’s happening today though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ScottRhodie

Right now there’s a technical briefing on the NBN rollout in their North Sydney office. Apparently streaming this is beyond their skills.

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Cyberwar: don’t believe the hype” with @RidT zdnet.com.au/cyberwar-dont-…

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, a media release with Jamie Oliver in it, THAT WILL SO FUCKING WELL CHEER ME UP!

via Janetter for Mac

New topic. New message thread. New subject line. WHAT IS SO FUCKING HARD ABOUT THAT?

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. And now I seem to have a disaster brewing. Well, an additional disaster. The week is not starting well.

via Janetter for Mac

Studio mode. Quiet please.

via Janetter for Mac

Did I say “wrappers” rather than “rappers”? Goodness me. My fingers know something I don’t. A bit like @en_gy’s, I suppose.

via Janetter for Mac

There is certain evidence to suggest that @en_gy knows more than he is willing to admit.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan: Complete “Patch Monday” podcast; SEKRIT project; lunch Wentworth Falls; comms & planning catchup; research a feature story.

via Janetter for Mac

PEOPLE OF EARTH, I AM ABOUT TO PROPOSE A PLAN FOR THE DAY, BUT IT MAY HAVE TO BE CHANGED. PLEASE BE ALERT BUT NOT ALARMED.

via Janetter for Mac

Why do all white-boy wrappers feel the need to stand in a way that suggests they have serious spinal deformities?

via Janetter for Mac

At 1500 AEST today I’ll be hosting a webinar on whether my immediately previous tweet should’ve had another comma in the second sentence.

via Janetter for Mac

Despairing for humanity. And chances are, YOU are the cause.

Rearranging the day’s plans because unreliable arseholes.

Please ask every editor running a Girls Around Me story: Why did you choose to cover THIS app and none of the other location-aware apps?

via Janetter for Mac

@nigelwadsworth That’s an entirely different issue. What “shocks” people is irrelevent, especially when news media tell them to be shocked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nigelwadsworth

If Girls Around Me is penalised without 90% of the rest being shut down too then the industry’s sheer hypocrisy will be proven.

via Janetter for Mac

Girls Around Me developer says only used publicly available data, being made privacy scapegoat. He’s right. news.cnet.com/8301-1009_3-57…
