I suspect what I just did is some sort of sin or other. And isn’t that sentence true so often!

Dear God, if you plan to destroy people’s buildings during tonight’s storm in Sydney, is there anywhere we can tweet suggestions?

via Janetter for Mac

@emmackat @RatbagsDotCom All that said, I don’t mind a bit of stormy weather. But I’ve been fighting a cold as it is.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to emmackat

I’ve decided to stay warm and dry in Sydney ‘cos the fire will have gone out and I just checked the forecast.

@oberonsghost Thank you. I thought my unshaven and un-made-up self looked OK on the monitor, and I got a clean shirt from wardrobe.

@mpesce I AM HIPPIFYING YOUR TELEVISIONS AND I WAS NOT THE FIRST PERSON TO MENTION CHATROULETTE SO I AM THEREFORE THE SENSIBLE ONE.

RT @mabster: If ever there was a time to remember the apostrophe, it’s when you’re talking about something owned by Christine Anu.

via Janetter for Mac

It must be one of those strange Universal Rules that in a week when I’ve had no time to get a haircut I’ve already done two TV spots.

via Janetter for Mac

@RobWauters The journey back isn’t any more worrying that the journey down. I think I just want an early night though. Decisions…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RobWauters

I have a beer. I have a power outlet. The next question is, back to Wentworth Falls now, or stay the night in Sydney?

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, the spot is recorded. I’m on @theprojecttv tonight talking about, erm, men with their pants off because it’s a hot day.

via Janetter for Mac

@AdmiralMarketsA BitCoin for cabs is useless to me. Where’s my receipt to claim it back on tax? I actually WANT an audit trail.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdmiralMarketsA

@robcorr Shaun Micallef. Most media spots end with a couple of blank Cabcharges and a handshake and a get out of here next guest!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to robcorr

Ah, Cabcharges! The media industry’s universal currency! Which is why it’s a bit rich to bitch about anyone else’s Cabcharge habits.

via Janetter for Mac

So that’s that. I think I need a quick drink somewhere now. And a power outlet.

via TweetDeck

We’re in Pyrmont, but the cab driver doesn’t know where he can and can’t turn.

via TweetDeck

In a taxi en route to Channel TEN in Pyrmont. Well, stuck on George St in the rain.

via TweetDeck

Why on earth am I catching the train INTO Sydney during this storm? Oh yeah. Television. @theprojecttv, this time.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I am turning off the internets to save . I’ll turn it on again when I am down on the Sydney plain.

via Janetter for Mac

@darrenpauli Oh hang on, you’re talking about the other thing. That’s different.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenpauli

@darrenpauli YES I AM DOING IT WHY ARE YOU NOT DOING IT DO I HAVE TO DO ALL YOUR TELEVISIONS FOR YOU NOW?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenpauli

I suppose I should have been paying attention to what the segment producer just said on the phone.

via Janetter for Mac

“Root me and I’ll profile your lame new startup.” Is that a thing?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @paulwallbank: @franksting first they came for the unemployed, then the social media experts…… [OH IF ONLY…!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

Television, what even is it? But I’m doing it anyway.

via TweetDeck

Plans change. I find myself about to catch the 1443 train from Leura to Central, heading to Channel TEN. Oh dear.

via Janetter for Mac

@Leighlo @alexkidman Thanks. I don’t care either way, I just thought it odd that given what Sony DOES spam me about that this one wasn’t.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Leighlo

@youngnick I can guess which one you read. All hail Discordia!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to youngnick

Oh is all this Sony / Google TV stuff happening at E3? If so, that’s why I don’t seem to know about it.

via Janetter for Mac

“I acquired your information from thomasnet, and know that you are in need of plastic parts and metal parts,” you email? Erm, no.

via Janetter for Mac

@rodthegeek I used to carry a spare phone battery, but for some reason don’t now. Trickle-charge off the laptop if desperate. Or stop work.

via TweetDeck in reply to rodthegeek

But bugger this, I’m going for lunch and shopping so I can get it all done while it’s still above 5C. Calling the cab…

via Janetter for Mac

@rodthegeek Well, yes, transmitters drain power. But “charging strategy”? Um, I keep the phone plugged in as much as possible?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rodthegeek

@PolAnimalAus I’ve actually found @Telstra to be quite reasonable, with most staff trying hard to find something that suits my needs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PolAnimalAus

“Hello. I’m a random stranger. Could you please change business X’s network so that…” WTF? NO! JUST, NO.

via Janetter for Mac

Completely baffled by IT workers who seem surprised that you won’t discuss a client’s network when you’ve never heard of them before.

via Janetter for Mac

@BeauGiles That mention of 120GB before wasn’t per month, btw, it was just a supposedly discounted way of pre-paying for usage.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BeauGiles

@Telstra Oh, forgot to add, this can be personal or business (I have an ABN), I just need, say, 18GB or 20GB on a phone instead of 12GB.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@BeauGiles Those plans are for having another device, so paying a second “access” fee? Outside requirement spec.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BeauGiles

@Telstra And VASTLY MOAR USELESS CALLS AND SMS is not a selling point for me but signs of a scam, paying for things I don’t need.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@Telstra So, requirements: Postpaid (ideally), phone used as tethered modem, 12GB sometimes not enough, no more devices to carry (ideally).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@lomantik I’m talking @Telstra here. One of @VodafoneAU and @Optus doesn’t have reception where I am right now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lomantik

@skwashd Hmmm… The last time I asked @Telstra about that it was the same problem: max provisionable data was 12GB. Way too confusing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to skwashd

RT @jamezpolley: @Telstra do allow tethering to your ipad. which doesn’t help at all if you don’t have one. [And another thing to carry.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

It seems insane to market a network as “leading” or whatever, plug the benefits of a smartphone, then limit its usage to under 500Mb/day.

via Janetter for Mac

@Telstra I’ve been in this mobile data idiocy zone before. I don’t undersand why I just can’t buy more data for the device I have.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@Telstra Thanks Ash, not useful. :) I occasionally hit the 12GB max provision for postpaid phone (it’s tethered modem a LOT). The answer?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

RT @bleeters: fwiw pretty sure anyone using WEP, WPS or WPA these days really is just offering free WIFI. [There is that, I suppose…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

Tue plan, unordered: Solve mobile data usage riddle; re-stock food supplies; planning for remainder of the month; stay warm and dry.

via Janetter for Mac

Now, was it @Telstra that had some prepaid 120GB of mobile data thingo hat someone told me about the other day?

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks to sophisticated fraud detection procedures, identity theft is now almost impossible. notalwaysworking.com/backdate-to-th…

@eraaustralia And even better would be that tool on a website, so farmers could use whatever computer/phone they already had.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to eraaustralia

Isn’t that in the US Declaration of Independence?

via Janetter for Mac

GIVE ME YOUR WET SHEEP FOR I SHALL DRY THEM!

via Janetter for Mac

At this point I would ike to thank @jeamland, not just generally, but also quite specifically.

via Janetter for Mac

@no_filter_Yamba Well, I’ve never been a gambling man… make of that what you will.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to no_filter_Yamba

RT @en_gy: Doesn’t wool shrink? [I thought you were supposed to wash it once first. And rain IS cold water so they shouldn’t shrink anyway.]

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @mukimu Well I know cows. Cows are smart enough to, like, seek shelter. And they’re made of leather wrapped around yumminess.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

I have always wondered why sheep are particularly in need of alerts rather than cows, pigs, chickens, horses. THEY ARE WRAPPED IN WOOL FFS!

@dannolan The BoM does not appear to have an “everywhere” forecast, the pricks, but Sydney has the same winwd as up here yes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

So today. 8C max. Cloudy, a shower or two soon, then winds to 65km/h. Let me just reconsider the number of wheelbarrows required. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes I do not support the policies of the Notional Socialists.

Spelling is for fascists.

Britain finally sees sense, begins rounding up the unemployed for use as slave labour. guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/jun/04…

via Janetter for Mac

So why pay attention to the opions of people who haven’t first demonstrated that they know anything about what you’re asking them about?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m not entirely sure how many hookers fit in a wheelbarrow, but it should be enough to begin with.

via Janetter for Mac

So, here’s how it’s going to work. I’ll get out of bed if you bring the wheelbarrow full of drugs, money and hookers.
