Amused by the hotel’s broadband plan with a 300MB/day limit before being throttled to dial-up speed. “Amused” means stabby-making, right?

via Janetter for Mac

So that’s the @zdnetaustralia story filed.

This security intelligence software would be a lot simpler if it wasn’t so goddam complicated.

@nanopunk I think I might need to re-watch “Howell’s Moving Castle” … or not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

@engochick @NewtonMark Mr Newton was suggesting that I don’t need to wait for Facts any more.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engochick

RT @NewtonMark: It’s 2012, it’s the Now Generation. You don’t new to wait anymore. [Please convince @engochick of your view on Facts.]

Whoever designed Yahoo!’s authentication-before-I-can-pay-you workflow should give up the fucking mescaline.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Yahoo!, why do you make it so fucking difficult for me to give you money? Are you looking to be bought by Microsoft too?

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @sylmobile I would like to watch you try to persuade the cat as to the benefits of your strategy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Waiting for some Facts to be Confirmed so that I can commit the final act of Journalism.

MT @j_hutch: iiNet has been forced to “manually intervene” in my internet connection. This can’t be good. [Beware “digital insertion” tho.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

Oh. That was a bit wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian read.bi/JS7Xg7 Do you have an electronic backdoor too? [My backdoor is fully steam, matey!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Still waiting to see if it’s a yes or a no regarding the Nazi shape-shifter sleeper agents.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @engochick, for reminding me that perhaps not everyone is going to understand my analogies to pre-WWII military technology.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, that’s enough feeding of the chooks. (Do chickens even like meth?) Time to write some words for money.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bernietb: Can’t do one without the other. [Your primary school was clearly very different from mine.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bernietb

You know, I’m pretty sure maths and meth aren’t the same thing.

via Janetter for Mac

@1159 Hah! Thanks. Mind you, if Mr James WAS dead already there’d be cries of “Too soon!” Now if he dies while we’re saing all this…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 1159

@mpesce Since you brave the waters of TechCrunch so we don’t have to, thank you, do you have a feel for whether it’s improving or declining?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@CBXn @1159 My mistake, sorry. With all the tribute links being posted yesterday and the “lost battle”, I assumed he was done.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CBXn

@jeamland @elronxenu Yes, Confusloth is held on 27 Confusion. I said that bit already to one of the other stupid people with no Googles.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

I could fall in love with a man who knows what a caltrop is. Well, except perhaps for that one then.

via Janetter for Mac

Clive James, passionate defender of Western liberal democracy, dies just as Queensland and Commonwealth governements do… what? Oh yes.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @purserj: And todays episode of the odd couple features @stilgherrian and @mpesce [This would be so wrong, however you look at it.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

Fri plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia (nearly done), @CSO_Australia; enable clean clothes; plan “Patch Monday” podcast (@mpesce on maths?).

@D_Keating I’d like to see the new, shiny Brisbane though. Perhaps you could persuade somebody to email me my flight and hotel details.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to D_Keating

@D_Keating Haven’t been to Brisbane in years, but I did a day trip to the Gold Coast on Wednesday.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to D_Keating

@mpesce WTF DO YOU MEAN THAT ARITHMETIC IS CANTANKEROUS NOW WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOUR PLANET HAVE YOU BEEN AT THE PEYOTE AGAIN.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Oh, so like in the dotcom boom, you add together 5 companies worth $1M and the resulting company is worth $50M? Yeah that worked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT @Prohairetic: i will contribute to an annual kickstarter to fund this position [Well now we’re getting somewhere! Thank you.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Prohairetic

I wonder if there’s some sort of job where I could have an assault rifle and when people publish obvious arsehattery I get to shoot them.

via Janetter for Mac

@lukasp @samesame Hmmm. Actually the statistic doesn’t say that, because a de facto couple may or may not have an intent to marry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukasp

So, we’re not quite 24 hours into the new solar year and already I’m disenchanted with the entire human species. “In your image”, God? Orly?

RT @seamus: CNET Australia is now advertising for a new journalist to cover the Home Entertainment beat. Details here: seek.com.au/Job/journalist…

I think it’s so sweet that you think “words” have “meanings” in the “news” media, @NewtonMark @FT

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @paulwallbank: Floating? If she’s going to capture the Alan Jones vote she’s going to have to climb into a chaff bag as well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

I dream that one day an Australian government will notice that “Being a cunt to the world’s most vulnerable people” is not such a good look.

via Janetter for Mac

Presumably the PM is announcing that all MPs are volunteering to float in the open ocean for 36 hours? I mean, if it’s such a lark…

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Minister Clare, there’s a level of caring for our fellow human beings another notch up from “Oh they probably won’t die straight away.”

via Janetter for Mac

Did Jason Clare just say that the NSW rail system is being replaced by a canal filled with water heated to 29C?

via Janetter for Mac

A government minister in particular requires an astounding ability to make enormous, obvious facts physically invisible to their own brains.

via Janetter for Mac

I admire the ability of politicians to say, in public, that there is “no problem” (or “issue”, gag) when it’s obvious to a 10yo there is.

via Janetter for Mac

@markparton THIS IS NOT THE POINT SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP.

via Janetter for Mac

That’s all NSW transport ministers do, @SnarkyPlatypus, is announce things that will never happen. Often because they can’t. It’s magic.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Mistress Insomnia decided to pay a visit last night, too, but I showed her! I wrote a 1000-word story. Hah!

@sylmobile @bleeters It’s a lesser-known Discordian holiday, held on 27 Confusion, yes. That’s the spirit.
