@jplonie I have observed families, from a distance, and I Remember Things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@jplonie That would be the less-family-friendly one I assume? See also: whiskey.

OH: “I’m too sober for Balmain.” “There’s not enough wine in the world for that!”

@jplonie I have always been disappointed with the gay sex @wolfcat offers. I would take that as a warning.

“Australia’s Human Rights Framework Is Making Our Nation Great”? Sure, but a legislated right to free speech is still beyond us, Ms Roxon?

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad 1. That is remarkably good advice, thank you. 2. Do you speak from experience? (Asking for a friend.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

Yeah this is probably getting to be a bit too much laughing now.

There is NEVER only one copy of anything, @eraaustralia. Even after, say recording an interview a backup is the first thing that happens.

People BUY those USB sticks, @Xavier_Ho? I seem to have an endless supply given to me with stuff on them.

OMFG. Said Samsung USB flash stick has inded survived the washing machine and the tumble dryer. I think I’ll buy a lottery ticket next.

RT @ssharwood: anyone got the full list of winners? [I already asked. No response. Journalists are useless when it comes to facts.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

So, with N-hundred journalists and PR people in the room, did anyone actually post a list of winners as they were being announced?

via Janetter for Mac

Smirking with three kinds of joy.

Ah, the joys of troubleshooting a problem with a custom (unique!) WordPress plugin that I didn’t write and haven’t even read before.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bunjaree

I think I have been avoiding tackling this website glitch for almost long enough. Another coffee, then into the troubleshooting.

via Janetter for Mac

@mcgozzaman Oh goodness, no apology necessary. That was gentle, polite feedback by the standards of some of the stuff I get.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mcgozzaman

@Colvinius @stokely @RydeResident Ta for the feedback. Appreciated. It’ll be interesting to see what the reaction is. If there is one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@mcgozzaman [nods] Indeed. That’s why I was curious about a reaction to someting that was (for me) ages ago and quite disposable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mcgozzaman

@mcgozzaman It just built on a dialog that began with a dream the other day. stilgherrian.com/personal/going… I’m not trying to do Shakespeare here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mcgozzaman

@mcgozzaman I can understand your POV on the subject, thanks for explaining. Mine? “Cheap crap” is all a Friday night tweet to friends is…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mcgozzaman

@BernardKeane It would be even better if they flounced the law, I think. With wigs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@mcgozzaman I ask ‘cos that was last night. I couldn’t remember the context myself, and had to look back to see what you meant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mcgozzaman

@mcgozzaman Genuine curiosity, did you find that tweet via a search (“Adelaide”, maybe) or scrolling back thru my 60+ tweets since then?

@walkleys Is there any way of reading your weekly update without involving Facebook? Didn’t you used to have your own website?

@gaberivera @bleeters Whether a string of chars is turned into a link is a client-side issue but, yes, if Twitter also make that client…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

RT @bleeters: @gaberivera @medic60 iirc you can start with a number if followed by letters [Excactly. Censorship my arse.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

Plus it’s hardly “censored”, @gaberivera @medic60. I can see it, right in front of me, in both your tweets and in mine.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gaberivera

Um, the (non-)hashtag #420 “censored”, @gaberivera @medic60? Doesn’t start with a letter, so it’s treated as a number (like “#1 fan).
