There’s a cafe in Wentworth Falls called Blue Mist. If I had a restaurant I’d call it The Red Mist. For some reason.

In position. I have a clear shot.

Of course the yellow-tailed black cockatoos come right up to the house and taunt me when my camera is missing. SCREECH!

@R_Chirgwin You’ll be wanting more washing powder to cope with the infinite number of towels that need washing.

via Janetter for Mac

@edklein_ Nah, that’s just normal regional / sociocultural variation in vowel sounds. The ɪ sound seems to vary quite a bit in Australia.

RT @adm_76: Not quite… If its “old” it’ll cost $5, if it’s “retro” it’ll be $50. Just walk down Regent St, Redfern. [Yeah, I charge $50.]

“Retro” is just a fancy word for “old”. I think from my next birthday I’ll just say I’m getting more retro.

RT @ataraxite: Everything is slash now. [What the deformed cat says is true.]

So Page & Brin slash is a thing now?

via Janetter for Mac

Clever readers will of course point out that Google pwd the goddam phone anyway, so I never did have a choice. Except to crush it to dust.

via Janetter for Mac

To recap, to use Google Voice Search, just search, I MUST give it full write access to the phone even though I don’t use those features.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah. “Control your phone with Voice Actions”. So, Siri Lite. Can choose language, SafeSearch, “Block offensive words”. Can’t turn off writes.

via Janetter for Mac

So, the Google Voice Search Android app needs to READ SMS, sure, but WRITE them? EDIT them? SEND them? For why?
