This… this is… um… hard for me to say, @dolldolldoll, but… um… I don’t actually feel like a glass of red right now, thank you.

I’ve never thought of “Passing the Native Title Act” as a euphemism before.

Here’s what happened the last time Eugene Kaspersky and I were allowed to meet. HE STARTED IT with the aliens! zdnet.com.au/is-cloud-secur…

via Janetter for Mac

Upon reflection, I really do need to interview Eugene Kaspersky next week, don’t it. Peas in a pod, we are.

via Janetter for Mac

And retweeting that cunt from Foo Fighters can stop about now too.

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder if people will ever work out that watching television isn’t compulsory.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s OK, folks, I did study linguistics and I know that’s not really how vowels work. My vowels work just fine.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe if I just filter out all the tweets with vowels in them. I’d limit myself to talking with Poles, Czechs and the Welsh.

Note to self: “101 Dalmatians” is NOT a classic Croatian orgy porn movie after all.

via Janetter for Mac

Antares is clogged with chocolate? Has someone told @ProfBrianCox? Can I tell him?

via Janetter for Mac

I grant you, @jonoabroad, the regexp filter “.*” worked a treat too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@R_Chirgwin It’s kinda therefore like that Disney movie “101 Dalmations” but not quite as many spots.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @mpesce: Crash Twitter? [Sadly not QUITE that good but almost. Twitter suddenly became… “sensible” is a strong word, I know, but that.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

WOW YES YES YES YES I JUST ADDED “#” TO THE GLOBAL MUTE FILTER IN JANETTER AND IT DID WHAT YOU KNOW YOU HAVE ALWAYS WANTED IT TO DO!

via Janetter for Mac

If I see a word I don’t understand, I just add it to my global filter. Twitter, indeed life, is hard enough without all these challenges.

@sylmobile I have another picture here that could go with that caption.

@magia3e Ah. “Big Bang Theory” isn’t on my little list.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to magia3e

@magia3e I haven’t the faintest idea what you’re talking about. Is it something I should be aware of?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to magia3e

@SnarkyPlatypus Beggars cant be choosers. And I was begging for this. Or gagging. I always get them confused.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Right. You can stop your whinging now. I’ve fixed it.

in other words, no clear conclusion can be drawn about the relative quality of work versus home computers, unless misdirection is intended.

via Janetter for Mac

MT @forrester: 50% … say the technology they use at home is better than the tech they use at work. , [So 50% don’t.]

@pocketcasts Thanks. I suspect @franksting is just hearing a rattle of phlegm in my throat first thing Monday. Classy podcasting here. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pocketcasts

@franksting @pocketcasts I have a cold, was a bit nasal and throaty. You’re not just hearing that as a technical problem, with the theme?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting @pocketcasts MP3 on CDN is exactly what I uploaded, plays cleanly for me in QuickTime player, iTiunes, Reaper… [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@pocketcasts Can you guys replicate what @franksting experiences with this episode? zdnet.com.au/removing-the-a… You don’t recode the MP3s, do you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting Thanks. I’ll see if I can replicate that. I cross-checked the audio production workflow, I used all the usual presets. Stand by.

@R_Chirgwin With 49.2V on the @bunjaree battery and only Rosella and Waratah Cottages tonight, we won’t need generator top-up of the solar.

via Janetter for Mac

Waratah Cottage obtained, along with the 2006 Coonawarra Shiraz and the fire lit earlier. Broadly speaking, that’s all that’s on fire, now.

So the garlic-in-coal-mines thing was a Thatcher-oriented “joke”…

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder if you can grow garlic in disused coal mines?

via Janetter for Mac

“Woolworths boasts an import replacement program and at the top of the buy local wish list is garlic,” said Landline. abc.net.au/landline/conte…

via Janetter for Mac

“One of the hardest crops you can grow in the world,” say Landline garlic blokes. “So hard to handle and everything has to be done by hand.”

via Janetter for Mac

I hasd no idea that the garlic market was so complicated, thank you @niltiac @sholtomac @RouleReport @johnvacy.

I retract my comment about Woolworths and garlic. There is Australian garlic, 20% more expensive but bedecked with flags.

You don’t even need a gingerbread house these days! instagr.am/p/KT_LJSCFqW/

Woolworths paints “supporting Aussie farmers” on their wall, but the only garlic you can buy is from Argentina. Ahem.

Dear America, you do know the difference between “confident” and “delusional”, right?

RT @glengyron: Printing you a Tshirt with “WHOSE ORSM” on it for you now. [Thanks. It’s my 30th birthday on Wednesday.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

It would appear that one audition criterion for hosting “The View” is the ability to squawk nasally at 200wpm for an entire hour.

via Janetter for Mac

OH, American TV on teen male fashion: “What’s better than a t-shirt that shows how confident you are, like ‘I am awesome’?” Erm, death?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Kristen_Boschma: Arrgggghhh I ban the use of “exciting” and exclamation marks at our joint!!! It’s exciting to try new words!!! [Yay!]

So when the NRMA Insurance TVC starts “With the cost of living going up…” should I just assume the rest of the advert is also a lie?

I suppose the big question for the AusCERT 2012 information security conference next week is “Who’s turn is it to get arrested?”

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve come to the conclusion that PR and marketing people think “exciting” is a punctuation mark, needed mid-way through all first sentences.

I think I agree with Eugene Kaspersky, @bleeters: Apple is 10 years behind Microsoft in security. Microsoft learned the hard way, changed.
