I would never squeal.

via TweetDeck

OH: “Squeal!”

via TweetDeck

I will kill you, you know.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Read the books, you lazy cunt.”

via Janetter for Mac

DON’T YOU CONFUSE ME WITH THAT FLOPPY-HAIRED FAGGOT YOU CUNT!

via Janetter for Mac

There seems to be some confusion about Charlotte Church’s cleavage, Kate.

via Janetter for Mac

Charlotte Church has ample breasts.

via Janetter for Mac

Ducati, eh? Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BennettArron: Prime Minister’s Questions is like a Two Ronnies’ sketch where no one answers the questions being asked….

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BennettArron

@BennettArron FFS! She’s an Aussie! No threat. What’s wrong with you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BennettArron

“6. What are some strategies that could be implemented so that gatekeepers and PR firms can build a strong relationship?” See previous.

via Janetter for Mac

“5. Between Journalists and PR practitioners, who do you believe holds more control and why?” Well, who pays for the booze? Der.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @gjfitzgerald: What’s the point in linking to the @australian? Um, if that’s where I got the info, that’s who I link to.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gjfitzgerald

FFS, people! Your lame anti @australian reactionary idiocy is as predictable as the partisanship you profess to object to.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Colvinius: Good journalism - investigative, analytical, insightful - is worth paying for. There, I’ve said it. [It needs to be said.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

Let’s be real here, people. Media factories, deadlines, airtime to fill. Sixty seconds out, a fucking cockroach is headline news!

via Janetter for Mac

“4. How do you decide if something is news worthy?” Well, um, how close are we to deadline?

via Janetter for Mac

Crikey/UTS work said, what? Well over 50%? And tech journalism was the worst, with 78% of stories the direct result of PR.

via Janetter for Mac

“3. In a survey in 1991. Public Relations Practitioners believed that 40% of output was based on Public Relations.” Hahahahahahahahaha!

via Janetter for Mac

As an aside, I will post the email I’m writing for this student. I’m on a roll here.

via Janetter for Mac

“2. What is journalism to you?” Hahahahahahahahahahahaha!

via Janetter for Mac

Oh dear, this poor student is going to have to cope with what I’m going to tell them.

via Janetter for Mac

“1. Could you please explain what you currently do and how you got there?”

via Janetter for Mac

I will respond to tweets shortly, except the ones from That Person, but right now I’m helping a student with their assignment. And drinking.

via Janetter for Mac

NewtonMark There are two more shuttle ferry flights coming up. For the last one they should release it at height and let it land by itself.

via Tweetie for Mac (retweeted on 6:31 PM, Apr 18th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I’m sure you are.

via Janetter for Mac

Leon Byner is still alive?

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “So this is the last year that television rights exist, eh?”

via Janetter for Mac

If you link to a story at the @australian you must screech “PAYWALL!” but if you link to a book or movie that costs money say nothing.

via Janetter for Mac

I have the utmost respect for everyone who might wear a zebra print blouse and screech when they giggle at the gentlemen’s little jokes.

via Janetter for Mac

Don’t worry, as soon as my phone has recharged I’ll be asking her if I can take her photo. With her toxic blue “drink”.

via Janetter for Mac

Sorry, Miss, is there something wrong with YOUR table? Why is it acceptable to pass your empty Bacardi Breezer [sic] bottle to my table?

via Janetter for Mac

So, if you’re a Lesser Office Wendy, is it compulsory that you skwawk unbearably at the slightest hint of alcohol?

via TweetDeck

Ships. Beer. Uhuh.

via TweetDeck

I have seen today’s future, and it is full of people running towards me and throwing things at me.

via TweetDeck

Being supplied with: 1. 3D glasses. 2. Alcohol. This will end well.

via TweetDeck

LG is also going on about the “distraction” of the frame around the image. Personaly, I’ve never found that a real-world problem.

via Janetter for Mac

Note to Samsung: I’m tweeting MUCH more from LG’s launch because I have a chair to sit in, in a room with 3G reception.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @en_gy: Are they at least showing the videos on the new TVs? [No, not yet anyway. But we get hands-on later.]

via Janetter for Mac

MT @GTRoberts: When watching 3D porn, you can control the depth of the image… perfect for determining size of breasts, penis length

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GTRoberts

Idle question: Why are they showing us videos explaining the features rather than demonstrating them right now?

via Janetter for Mac

MT @jendudley: LG’s Magic Remote has wheel/scrolling ball, reminds me of my old BlackBerry. [Reminds me of theonion.com/video/apple-in… !]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

On the gesture interface: “We believe it will set the standard in this industry.” Watch out, Apple! Watch out, Kinect!

via Janetter for Mac

LG’s DualPlay gaming feature feeds separate player 1 / player 2 views thru the two 3D channels.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @snerdish: I bet on the inside, underneath the PR guff, he’s crying, crying because it has come to this.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snerdish

“3D depth control… customise depth of your 3D image… over 20 levels”. Someone needs to tell me why I’d need or want this.

via Janetter for Mac

LG has “3 pillars” in their strategy, Samsung has 4. But LG has four boxes in their diagram but gives Samsung only 3.

via Janetter for Mac

“…premium, high-quality products that enrich the lives of consumers”.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @purserj: looking at the smarttv website. They’re positioning twitter as “premium content”? [Quoted without comment.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

Indeed, @BundyB. Last night Samsung didn’t even mention 3D, and when asked said it was just a feature in all TVs these days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

The assumption in LG’s chart is that people bought 3D over non-3D because of the 3D, rather than other TV features.

via Janetter for Mac

“As William F Gibson said…” DRINK! (I don’t think I’ve heard anyone mention the “F” before.)

via Janetter for Mac

They’re really leading with 3D? Really? The word “3D” has been mentioned at least once in every sentence from the MD’s mouth so far.

via Janetter for Mac

Buzzword-laden video with overly-loud bass plays.

via Janetter for Mac

Is it even possible to talk about a television for a whole hour? I mean, assuming you don’t have OCD.

via Janetter for Mac

In LG’s defence, I will say that they handed out bottled drinking water, such as is done on long treks through a desert.

via Janetter for Mac

Program: 1445 Presentations start; 1545 experience TVs in rooftop gallery; 1730 ends. AN HOUR OF SIT-AND-WATCH PRESENTATIONS? ORLY?

via Janetter for Mac

I will shortly arrive at the MCA for LG’s launch. They say the hashtag is , I say it’s .

via TweetDeck

So is an audit slam like a poetry slam? That is, self-indulgent, lame, and good reason to choose another pub?

via TweetDeck

RT @SnarkyPlatypus Legendary basketballer. @rashasman [Oh. I’d have gone with “inventor of double-entry bookkeeping”, Eddie.]

via TweetDeck

RT @rashasman Because Kareem Abddul Jabbar was the greatest auditor of all time. [Now I’ll have to look that up, but later.]

via TweetDeck

Note to self: Remember that auditors’ reports always “slam” things. Always. It’s the Rule in journalism.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “The Clitoris of Freedom rules all.” Ping @firstdogonmoon

via Janetter for Mac

RT @stryqx: anyone used SafeSquid? [Why? What do you intend doing with the squid that might be unsafe?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stryqx

RT @davidcalculli: Parramatta wharf is completely flooded! pic.twitter.com/td0awINl [Only another 5 metres to go, God. You can do it!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to davidcalculli

Though apparently she doesn”t know how to turn her television off, or even walk away from it. Poor thing.

via Janetter for Mac

This Rachel Sztanski seems like a well-mannered and reasonable young woman. Just the sort of person you’d invite for a quiet chat.

via Janetter for Mac

@bhaverty That sounds a lot like innuendo, and I would never resort to that at lunchtime.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bhaverty

That last tweet was a bit of a collision of in-jokes. Sorry. Also, I regret upsetting anyone who might run a coworking space.

via Janetter for Mac

“Deep justicular fondling”? Yes, that is a thing. I’m from Adelaide, you know.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, Senator Wong, for yet another media release about what Tony Abbott said. I wouldn’t even know if it weren’t for you.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “$295 cash in hand at the end of the day.” “That’s a good deal. Did you want me to start tomorrow?”

via Janetter for Mac

Settling for second best, but with a window seat.

via Janetter for Mac

I have successfully crossed Market St. Hahahahahaha!

via TweetDeck

Tweets are running late and out of timetable order.

via TweetDeck

I don’t see how these “fashion” ” boutiques” upstairs in the Strand Arcade can be profitable. I assume they front for money launderers.

via TweetDeck

There seems to be a code. For “jewelry” read “cocaine dealer”. For “frocks”, “ecstasy”. And so on.

via TweetDeck

“Are you into your music?” asks the perky young man. I ask him what that even means. He seems confused now, negating the marginal RI.

via TweetDeck

I should’ve started this as a pub crawl.

via TweetDeck

People who build city buildings without verandahs to protect us from the elements should be chained outside them for six months.

via TweetDeck

OH: “No, I saw the first episode the other night. It’s just people singing.”

via TweetDeck

The stupid thing about male pattern baldness is that you never see any patterns. No stripes. No cheques. Certainly no paisley.

via TweetDeck

Since I’m early, I shall drop the heavy rail from my plan and stroll the length of the Sydney CBD to The Rocks.

via TweetDeck

That and your deafening fingernails-on-blackboard screech of self-entitlement.

via TweetDeck

I’d be more sympathetic of your claim to free tram travel without ID, ma’am, if you wore fewer than those 12 items of gold bling.

via TweetDeck

RT @BernardKeane: Enjoying The Guardian’s series on threats to internet privacy. Particularly given each story puts 24 cookies on your PC.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: You’ve just sucked several people into the Black Hole of Nostalgia. [It’s public service. Like geriatric care.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

All of BBC Radio 1’s “Essential Mix” programs back to 1993. All 910 of them, should keep you busy. soundcloud.com/das-boy/sets/e…

via Janetter for Mac

@SuzieVee03 Sure, email away. Address is on my website. Please make sure you give me a deadline.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SuzieVee03

@firstdogonmoon Next time you are in Sydney I’ll take you for a jolly day out in the Federal Court. Oh how we’ll laugh!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to firstdogonmoon

RT @grantshow: WTF is soy lite?! [An abomination in the sight of God. Also, wank.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grantshow

@MetaMikeBiggs @pcutler @iain_chalmers Not sure if I’ll have time for cofee and/or clocks at the MCA, I’ll see how I go after the event.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MetaMikeBiggs

Mobile: Steak sandwich at nearby cafe; light rail to Central; heavy rail to Circular Quay; walk (don’t run!) to MCA by 1430 AEST.

via Janetter for Mac

@firstdogonmoon Federal Court judges wear a black robe, no wig or anything. Not in normal hearings anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to firstdogonmoon

@nephstar @mayorofnewtown I’d just phone the council then. Quicker than farting about on the internet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nephstar

RT @jeamland: Hey look, @leslienassar only said you were “worthy”. I don’t think that requires legal action. Even if it is @leslienassar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

Oh, anyone know or is a defamation lawyer in Sydney? Someone may need to be told to pull their head in one day, I think.

via Janetter for Mac

@skwashd I have no idea about Friday, sorry, but generally the mornings are when I get a bunch of writing done. That’s still way behind.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to skwashd

@nephstar Newtown station plans would be in DA on council website (Sydney? Marrickville?), but I thought @mayorofnewtown had them on his?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nephstar

This is also remarkably good advice, given the weather today. animalstalkinginallcaps.tumblr.com/post/212720742…

via Janetter for Mac

I am a fan of well-developed life strategies, you know. notalwaysright.com/lets-address-h…

via Janetter for Mac

I mean that as a genuine compliment. Emphasis of doubt; build on existing beliefs, fears; use of rhetoric. Very good. /cc @TurnbullMalcolm

via Janetter for Mac

Media studies teachers should set @TurnbullMalcolm’s anti-NBN speeches as a class exercise in propaganda analysis. They’re very good.

via Janetter for Mac

I think, finally, and I don’t wish to jinx this, that my schedule is now back to where I wanted it to be a week ago. I think I may cry.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @Kayako, for your ever-clear and comprehensive documentation, and live chat support staff who proffer useful tips.

via Janetter for Mac

I will speak no more of FileZilla. It is deleted It is behind me now. I probably will not kill its creator with a blunt grey-handled knife.

via Janetter for Mac

@neerav @ronsman @PointZeroOne @PacketNetworks Any tool has to be learned, but FFS an FTP program? We have mature interfaces for this.

via Janetter for Mac

@neerav @ronsman @PointZeroOne @PacketNetworks Copying next to or into a directory? How to stop something quickly? Non-obvious under stress.

via Janetter for Mac

@neerav @ronsman @PointZeroOne @PacketNetworks My argument was never about FileZilla “working” but that its interface was error-prone.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to neerav

Done. Solved. Excellent. Upgrade completed. Time for coffee and cleaning up the rest of the mess just created. (Reponses shortly.)

via Janetter for Mac

How to clean up the mess, quicly and with style: rm -rf *

via Janetter for Mac

But first, to clean up the mess I created ‘cos FileZilla is not at all clear about where things are going to be copied to. Grrr.

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck it, I’ll use rsync from the shell just like I always have done.

via Janetter for Mac

@rmccue Explain to me again how WinSCP runs on OS X? Recommendations before requirements spec == failure. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rmccue

I’m not talking about “reliability”, @neerav. I sit staring at it and I have no idea whether it did what I intended. I have deleted it.

via Janetter for Mac

FileZilla fills me with confidence in the same way that helium fills me with scale models of the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

via Janetter for Mac

FileZilla is: 1. Free. 2. The most confusing, ugly and dangerous piece of software on the entire planet.

via Janetter for Mac

Breaking all the things. Oops.

via Janetter for Mac

Following the Procedure. Carefully. Because I’m responsible.

via Janetter for Mac

Alas, there is no gin in this house. At least that I can find. Part B of the software upgrade it will have to be. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

Installing ionCube Loader was running a script. It took less than two seconds. So Part A was simple. Now, Part B! Or gin first?

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Install ionCube Loader. Upgrade my application to version 3. The ionCube version not the Zend version. Computers are so excellent.

via Janetter for Mac

Mehan thinks that Himanshu will be more suited to my desires and “needs” this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

In live chat with Mehar, who will support me. Technically. Though if he has an actual job he could be my sugar daddy.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh well, I suppose I’d better get this systems administration done so I can then do more interesting things, like throw myself into a canal.

via Janetter for Mac

The phrase “linked to” is another journalistic con, isn’t it. Could mean anything. Sounds serious. Explains nothing.

via Janetter for Mac

Appropriateness achieved. [nods]

via Janetter for Mac

God help @firstdogonmoon if he actually mocks anything with Anzac in the name. Except possibly biscuits. Nevertheless, I encourage it.

via Janetter for Mac

PM Gillard is in Albany and will announce something about an “Anzac Interpretive Centre”, which sounds like @firstdogonmoon invented it.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ozdj: CBD: Dark; howling winds; driving rain. Horrible. twitpic.com/9b0v5o twitpic.com/9b0v0k [This is beauty!]

I am: disgruntled; annoyed I don’t have my camera; feeling trapped indoors; adversely affected by the weather; disgruntled; 182cm tall.

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan: More annoying sysadmin stuff; invoicing; research; 1430 LG smart TV launch, MCA; remainder TBA ‘cos I’m still very disgruntled.

via Janetter for Mac

Kindly revert back if you are interested.

via Janetter for Mac

Laughing at corporate bullshit.

MT @purserj: Would that make it “house-gate”? [Oh, that is lovely work!] /cc @Idealaw

Nanny state political correctness gone mad!

via Janetter for Mac

Wednesday? Disgruntled. And apparently you’re not allowed to shoot down these aircraft because it’s “wrong”.
