MT @leslienassar: @mpesce @djmattyg007 Facebook should buy … Mudhoney. [FINALLY SOMEONE IS MAKING SENSE!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@sylmobile @smperris @jplonie It’s called “fritz” where I come from. “Devon”? Bah!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@mpesce @paulwallbank @rbersten Apparently I will be at the ABC on Thursday, but you can blame @marcfennell this time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@rmccue I agree with what you say. I think I’ve decided it’s Perl. Just to be difficult.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rmccue

I suspect that @smperris should be put on suicide watch.

via Janetter for Mac

@rmccue Actually, if what I just wrote doesn’t parse without error, the language is bullshit. A null statement should be valid.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rmccue

@paulwallbank @mpesce @rbersten Who’d be so stupid as to waste good LSD on the ABC?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

You’re completely right, @rmccue, assuming certain common things about the unnamed language’s grammar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rmccue

RT @vealmince: A stage version of Insiders? I like it! [Have I ever said that I love you?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

@R_Chirgwin I have no idea what you’re referring to. The word “clock” does not appeat in His Majesty’s Wikipedia entry.

via Janetter for Mac

Did I mention that I was on a panel at Sydney Writers’ Festival? Well, I am living proof of my own theory.

via Janetter for Mac

I should start a series of public talks where people sit on a stage and repeat the bleeding obvious mixed with bullshit. Seems to be the go.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jplonie: @stilgherrian it’s so hard to please you sometimes. [Well that’s because you’ve never really tried. Not with true passion.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

Podcast structure #1: openmic($n_presenters); while ($TIME <= 3600) { say(randomstring()); laugh(10)}; rollcredits(); upload(); exit;

via Janetter for Mac

Hmmm. Someone just recommended a podcast, but it’s just another trio of white Americans crapping on about stuff and laughing at their “wit”.

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting It would appear that nice grannies in Poland are an essential component of cybercrime. zdnet.com.au/cybercrime-its…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

I see @paulwallbank has gone off reservation again.

via Janetter for Mac

@macleanbrendan Hang on, have we crossed over into some sort of fantasy world here? @joshgnosis

via Janetter for Mac in reply to macleanbrendan

@HarrisonPolites Oh if I’m in Melbourne any time soon the plans will be spammed across the internets, fear not! Look forward to meeting you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HarrisonPolites

@franksting @Dom_Innate I’ve only been on once, but I did manage to get in a reference to rent boys. So perhaps my work is done.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

RT @Dom_Innate: @stilgherrian can you be that smug too? [I coud take lessons. I’m a fast learner.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DomSequitur

RT @sleemol: @stilgherrian you would not be on any dates, though. [So no change then. No risk.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sleemol

The Man with the Tie is credited as “The Daily Grind”, but last post was February. thedailygrind.com.au I wonder what he does now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @samquigley: Are gigalitres dominoes or recession? I haz confuse. [I suspect they’re sovereign risk.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to samquigley

@treespiepurr Well, you’ve inspired me to dig into the meaning and history of “sovereign risk” now. Cheers!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to treespiepurr

Seriously, @ataraxite, why can’t you do something less harmful, like sell crack to children?

via Janetter for Mac

So if you can get set up with hookers by your enemies, imagine what could happen if your friends organised it! Let the fun begin!

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe if I bought a tie with diagonal purple and silver stripes I’d be on more often.

via Janetter for Mac

Today we can all pronounce “gigalitres” and sould like we’re intelligent because science.

via Janetter for Mac

Careful, @BernardKeane, you’re making sense on the television again.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve lived on this planet for half a century. I read history. “Sovereign risk” only became a thing in the last year. I call bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. So I fell asleep.

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Cybercrime: it’s just too easy”, with @mikko and Graham Ingram. zdnet.com.au/cybercrime-its…

via Janetter for Mac

A Slender-Billed Cuckoo-Dove is trying to monster the Crimson Rosellas. Unlike the last time flickr.com/photos/stilghe… the rosellas are winning.

via Janetter for Mac

Listening to the latest “Lexicon Valley” podcast, in which the hosts suggest more interesting ways to insult Jews. itunes.apple.com/au/podcast/sla…

via Janetter for Mac

Sorting our @marcfennell’s schedule for him, while cooking kangaroo and bush tomato sausages. My versatility astounds me sometimes.

via Janetter for Mac

Wandering to the storeroom and back.

@miss_shiny One of the joys of freelancing is that “break for a few days” means “no income this week”. But it’s an easier week this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to miss_shiny

@awmorris Yep, @SalmatAtHome has plenty of people doing call centre work from home. @iiNet also.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to awmorris

@monkeytypist All is revealed with the aid of a scroll bar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to monkeytypist

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Are you contagious? Maybe you should take a walk in Leura. [Oh I like your thinking. I need more phlegm for that.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And that’s the “Patch Monday” podcast filed. I can now reveal that I have a headache and still feel shit. I AM DISEASED!

@R_Chirgwin So that would be the species known as “Dad Joke”? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@joshgnosis I keep thinking of the cyber posse as Dad’s Army with punchcards. youtube.com/watch?v=x2GQri…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

The podcast production goes to plan. I am pleased. I also need to take a break now and stoke the fire.

via Janetter for Mac

In studio mode, finally. Quiet please.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank There’s no Law of Conservation of Stupid. More humans than ever before, but Stupid isn’t being diluted.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin endless supply. As soon as the fools spend all their money the goverment just gives them some more.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

RT @paulwallbank: My god there’s some dodgy conferences out there. I wonder how much life is left in that business model? [Lots: fool/money]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@garthk I’m suffering Monday morning fuzz, but I seem to recall that story and that researcher’s name. @riskybusiness, you brain working?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

RT @purserj: Seriously? Kidney health people running around in their undies at wynyard [This is why we, as a species, are doomed.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@garthk That’s not looking like a new web page? Or it’s not dated? Or am I missing something? @riskybusiness

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

Cambridge researchers found a back door in a Chinese-made chip used in US military hardware. cl.cam.ac.uk/~sps32/sec_new… HT @garthk

via Janetter for Mac

@garthk @riskybusiness Interesting story. I’m on deadline now for today’s episode, UK time zones work against me. But I will follow it up.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

@SnarkyPlatypus Je pense qu’il est juste de dire que je gagne tous les lundis.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So @ataraxite your magazine correspondent i.imgur.com/8TnI0.jpg needs one of these, I should think. Those wacky Swedes! stilgherrian.com/human-nature/i…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il ya une certaine lenteur à propos ce matin. En outre, la dignité. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

And the rest of the week should still be much as outlined in my Weekly Wrap post from yesterday. This pleases me. stilgherrian.com/weekly-wrap/we…

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; continue poking at that prolematic bit of client PHP code; relaxing evening.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yeah. it’s also the 75th birthday of the Golden Gate Bridge on 28 May, though it’s still only 27 May in the US. @GGB75.

via Janetter for Mac

Happy birthday also to Ian Fleming en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ian_Flemi… and Jeff Fenech en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeff_Fene… though why am I telling you this I don’t know.

via Janetter for Mac
