Oh “Dragon’s Den” is a real program? I thought it was just made up for that sketch show.

MT @corduroy: Instead of watching the rest of the voice, I’m doing this: arseh.at/tzr [No problem, but both are possible.]

Revelling in regexp Twitter filters.

@corduroy @drueyjay @AUSFestivus @fictillius @michaelneale You’re all rather a long way behind, gentlemen. Dealt with this ages ago. But ta.

MT @CatherineDeveny: Would you like a Royal Commission into sex abuse in the Catholic Church? [No. Shoot the lot, let God sort ‘em out.]

SnarkyPlatypus I do love loopy libertarians. They do loopiness like no other ideology can.

RT @purserj: the world smacked them because they were asleep at the wheel [Exactly that. Within Fairfax 1995-96l, no sense of urgency.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

Of course it was the smug arrogance of “we own the audience” that caused their problems but, hey, blame anyone but yourself.

via Janetter for Mac

Australian media with massive goodwill in their mastheads fail to adapt, blame foreigners for “stealing” audience. afr.com/p/business/mar…

It woud be wise of you to blame @jcmurty for my immediately previous tweet.

I’m none the wiser but, thanks to that little moment of shared joy, as a species we are now better equipped to conquer the galaxy.

RT @ApostrophePong: Shouldn’t we have Songkran everyday?! [Well obviously, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong “Support tickets will usually be processed before Songkran.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Sorry, there’s something in the news I don’t quite understand. What’s “Yahoo!” and what is it for?

via Janetter for Mac

@RatbagsDotCom Ah. @externallylaws has already dealt with that. But thank you. I see you’re still coping with Coldplay, so you’re excused.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RatbagsDotCom

@ApostrophePong I’m happy with either of those destinations. Washington DC may be easier: I already have a visa;

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong A web server shouldn’t crash. Do you need me to pop over and sort it out?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

I’m pleased to see that it got to all of 8.6C today. No wonder etc. bmcc.nsw.gov.au/weather/Katoom… HT @externallylaws

via Janetter for Mac

@externallylaws Oh thank you, that’s precisely what I need! I now know that it was and is as cold as I suspected. Erk.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to externallylaws

Any security company that uses Matrix-style dark-shades guys in their advertising should bulldoze their marketing people into a landfill.

via Janetter for Mac

Is there a proper weather station for Katoomba? BOM’s only reads at 0600, 0900 and 1500. Lazy turds.

Do not listen to the Finn. He is mentally disturbed.

@grantshow We need some sort of real-time AR app for that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grantshow

@grantshow Yes, that’d work. If they sack enough people, customers will recommend them to their friends. [nods] I AM SUCH A FAN OF FACTS!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to grantshow

@grantshow Hah! First one is to find out who to blame and sack (without knowing why), second one is to provide a brag number for marketing.

And the radio is done. I’ll post the audio a bit later this evening.

via Janetter for Mac

Now really on hold for ABC @702sydney to depress you all with my bleak view of humanity and Facebook. Listen at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

Look, I know what I’m doing.

via Janetter for Mac

Anyone would think Deputy Premier Stoner is trying to warp our views with cheap propaganda tricks, but surely only a cunt would do that.

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder why Deputy Premier Stoner is telling me what “average people” will think of a report before he’s even read the thing, let alone us.

via Janetter for Mac

Did someone just mention a bar?

via Janetter for Mac

Man on @702sydney explains: we’re too stupid to understand being given money ‘cos higher electricity prices means higher electricity prices.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @purserj There’s only so much pig and cow one can eat. [This is, essentially, not true.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Radio rescheduled. Will now be at 1710 AEST or so.

via Janetter for Mac

Amused that we live in a world that requires a bloke like the bloke on @702sydney just now who has to explain that lying is wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

No, not on hold yet. That was someone else who I was just very very rude to. Sorry, @sholtomac! Call back once I’m off the radio.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, on hold for ABC @702sydney to depress you all with my bleak view of humanity and Facebook. Listen at abc.net.au/sydney/

RT @purserj: 2 bucks to essentially yell in your Facebook friends ears? [Yes, exactly that.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

So whaddyareckon? Will Facebook’s pay-to-be-highlighed button on posts work? Given only 12% of your “friends” see any given post?

via Janetter for Mac

@sholtomac @sholtomac And automated scans for known vulnerabilities are what the kiddies START with.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sholtomac

@sholtomac Per year? My web server auto-blocked 27 probes to open ports so far today. Closed ports I don’t log. Dozens, hundreds per hour?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sholtomac

Pay $2 to get noticed on Facebook? heraldsun.com.au/news/more-news… I’ll be chatting with @rglover702 on ABC @702sydney at 1610 AEST.

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. Whew! Now, to interact with the world a bit. Let’s see…

via Janetter for Mac

So has someone told everyone going “The Wozniak Thing” they have to photograph their passes, or is it just an outbreak of mass stupidity?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Steve_Lockstep Astonishing & distressing: as politics necessarily gets more complex, mainstream political discourse gets more simplistic

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steve_Lockstep

RT @firstdogonmoon: “the thing about twitter is it doesn’t matter, it’s a realm of lies” overheard crikey office 2012

via Janetter for Mac in reply to firstdogonmoon

It appears that “The Wozniak Thing” is something that nobody bothered to tell me about.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh @Steve_Lockstep the very idea that politics is “left” versus “right” SHITS ME TO FUCKING TEARS ON A REGULAR BASIS. There. Like that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@etymon You fill me with much joy… sigh. I think I shall choose “despair” today.

@jonoabroad Cat 6 is more resistant to dropout-causing electrical interference. Kinks cause local capacitance something something physics.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Cat 6 is rated for gigabit, Cat 5 isn’t but can often deliver it in low-interference networks if you don’t kink the cables.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@hollingsworth @bhowarth Yeah I was helping with the spambots too. The post-lunch rise time in hashtag mentions would’ve been it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hollingsworth

Thank you, Hat, I now have my Rabbit.

via Janetter for Mac

@hollingsworth @mattei @leahmac @marclehmann I was told the camera was doing… something… which is why I didn’t set up my recording gear.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hollingsworth

So “regulating the internet” is a binary thing? It either can/can’t be, is/isn’t regulated? What arsehattery is this?

via Janetter for Mac

@mattei @saasu Thank you. I must keep and expand the explanation of just how good the malware industry is! @hollingsworth, do we have video?

@mpesce @foomeister BUT WHERE DO THE LORIKEETS FIT INTO YOUR “THEORY”?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@ozdj But if the dog gets to do all those OARSUM things that we all crave to do, why does it always look so disgruntled?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: You’re more of a Gold Coast person than a San Francisco person? [Yes. Obviously. *kills self*]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mpesce @foomeister Are you telling me that fax machines are full of lorikeets?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Oh that’s right. I could have been in San Francisco this week. Now why was it again that I decide to go to the Gold Coast instead?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar: What’s the technology equivalent of a urinary tract infection? [This is also a good question. Pretty much all of it?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

RT @foomeister: How do fax machines work? [This is a good question. I’ll have to ask someone old. @mpesce?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to foomeister

So, if anyone has some burning questions they’d want answered in a (technology-related) podcast, now’s the time to ask them.
