@BrigadierSlog @PolAnimalAus Broadly speaking, businesses have a fair point. “What I have works fine for me. Why do I need to ‘upgrade’?”

Boat noodle is a safer option. Moo ping also. Oh. It is all moo. SUFFER YOU LITTLE PIGGIES.

Would tub waan be too dangerous on an upset stomach?

@BrigadierSlog Microsoft’s challenge is transitioning their whole being to new paradigms, versus companies that just start there from day 1.

@BrigadierSlog Windows/Office, like MacOS, is “documents”. That age is ending. “iPads can’t do Outlook” = “Car don’t even have hooves!”

@BrigadierSlog I don’t think they’re “out of touch”, just looking through a different prism, technical not business. Maybe wrong timescale.

I managed to do the whole thing woithout swearing once! Probably ‘cos it’s @zdnetaustralia’s masthead and not my own. Rules n’stuff.

So the “Microsoft? Is that still a thing?” podcast and the comments it generated? I have just responded. zdnet.com.au/microsoft-is-t…

@katska @Internode @matthewlandauer So, as usual, the internet proves that I’m pretty much unnecessary. Thanks folks.

Well that was a rather nice day of pondering and thinking. We should have a Winter Solstice every year!

@gusworldau @juhasaarinen @alpharia STOP CONFUSING ME STOP CONFUSING ME STOP CONFUSING ME STOP CONFUSING ME STOP CONFUSING ME.

God I used to know all this stuff backwards.

I might have to pop past Sound Devices on Sussex St later. They’re bound to have a Thing That Will Do The Trick.

@michaelneale Yes. Impedance mismatch, that’s what I thought. It’d distort to buggery. Poo. /cc @DeanBarnett @PointZeroOne

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@DeanBarnett Control? Or the microphone? But either way, yes, one would assume engineers make things backward compatible.

@imtimhanlon @DeanBarnett And thanks, chaps. It’s a long time since I constructed anything out of analog audio, though I used to do heaps.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timhnln

@imtimhanlon @DeanBarnett So the levels will work, but I need a 3.5mm phone 4-ring thingo to 3.5mm stereo. Would that be a thing?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timhnln

Hang on, it’s a phone. It’s not a proper 3.5mm headphone socket anyway. It’s a phone headset thing. I think I want to cry now.

via Janetter for Mac

So, phone headphone output into MacBook Pro line in will… bugger I’ve forgotten my analog audio standards. That will fuck up, won’t it?

via Janetter for Mac

Ah. The TuneIn app records internet radio, but encrypted so it can only play back on the device it was recorded on, “because copyright”.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je vous félicite de votre clarté de la pensée.

@juhasaarinen There shall be no animal sacrifices this year.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il s’agit d’une courte journée, et j’ai l’intention d’en faire plus court. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

[stretch] I believe this is Thursday. Winter Solstice is at 0909 AEST. I’ll be pondering that until about 1000 AEST, as is my routine.
