Banksia Cottage attained. Collapse imminent.

Not at all stabby.

All that clever research reduced to a single out-of-context factoid that marketers can stick in their presentation. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

@maxcelcat Oh, that. I’d assumed that vanished long ago, to be replaced by some sensible sort of spam controls. Sigh. As you were.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maxcelcat

Feeling better about my embarrassing mistake, a mere oversight, now that I’ve seen an embarrassing lack of industry knowledge.

via Janetter for Mac

@BobGrrl I beieve you’ve just proven my point. @GeordieGuy

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BobGrrl

@maxcelcat I don’t understand. If they don’t tweet, why does it matter if you follow them or not? Then if they do start, you’ll see them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maxcelcat

Please stop confusing people with facts.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, only in sufficient quantities.

via Janetter for Mac

@jturner_ibrs @GeordieGuy I think it’s fairly safe to say that I haven’t lived full stop.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jturner_ibrs

@vanderaj Do not discount the power of dropbear dung.

RT @GeordieGuy: @stilgherrian who uses default ringtones? [People waste their lives thinking about choosing ringtones?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

Dear Samsung, could at least SOME of the Galaxy S III’s ringtones sound like a phone, not a yoga teacher beaming in from Planet Dolphin?

via Janetter for Mac

1. I am an idiot. 2. I have emailed off a fix. 3. I have just opened a beer.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh! Dropbox had a MAJOR failure early June? cso.com.au/article/390939… Yes, great example. I’ll use that. Saw “6 June”, didn’t notice “2011”. Poo.

via Janetter for Mac

“That’s interesting,” I thought. “Have there been incidents?” I went looking. Mitt Romney’s Dropbox hacked? cso.com.au/article/426880… Nah…

via Janetter for Mac

So, last week there was a security “webinar” warning about using things like Dropbox, and also some IBM people talked to us about it…

via Janetter for Mac

@GreenJ At this stage I don’t care if the pig can’t fly. Just being able to stagger down the hallway and puke in the bathroom would be win.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

Sow’s ear, meet silk purse.

via Janetter for Mac

Making urgent telephone calls.

via Janetter for Mac

How the fuck did I not notice that in choosing Dropbox security examples, I picked the wrong one to use? Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

via Janetter for Mac

So, the @CSO_Australia thing I wrote that I linked to is based on an incident a year ago, not a week ago. Ta, @damncabbage @iain_chalmers

via Janetter for Mac

There is a reason that writers need good, informed editors, and I have just provided a classic example. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Fuck.

via Janetter for Mac

Now… what was I doing…? Oh yeah.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yeah. Me at @CSO_Australia: “Prepare yourself for more Dropbox-like security disasters”. cso.com.au/article/428526…

via Janetter for Mac

Making damn sure it doesn’t end well.

via Janetter for Mac

This will not end well.

via Janetter for Mac

Encoding my replies.

via Janetter for Mac

Decoding the messages.

via Janetter for Mac

The carbon tax seems to have screwed up PC sales too. zdnet.com.au/idc-blames-car…

via Janetter for Mac

It was easy enough to produce the “Patch Monday” podcast before we had a carbon tax.

via Janetter for Mac

Facing the ugly reality of it all.

via Janetter for Mac

Pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt pfzzt BANG BANG BANG BANG BANG crash oh.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s like all my ideas are V-1s, and I haven’t realised that they’ve invented radar-controlled anti-aircraft guns.

via Janetter for Mac

Pausing to reconsider.

via Janetter for Mac

Something about sausages and the media.

via Janetter for Mac

@perissology @ReachOut_AUS (Right now it’s got to be a topic that I mostly have my head around and can prep fast for a 1-person interview.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to perissology

@perissology @ReachOut_AUS It’s rather a good idea, actually, and noted to follow up, thank you. I couldn’t get my head around it today tho.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to perissology

That whole 29 minutes of quietly sobbing plan is starting to look like the best bet at this stage.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Hat, if there is still a Rabbit down in there somewhere, could you just move it up a bit so I can reach it and pull it out?

via Janetter for Mac

That moment when you realise your plans were fatally flawed from the very beginning, and you wish you’d realised it at the time.

via Janetter for Mac

So I’m up to Step 4 in the previously-announced order of play, and all three podcast ideas have crashed and burned in front of me.

via Janetter for Mac

Stressed, annoyed and disgruntled, all at once. At least Churchill got to bomb Dresden.

via Janetter for Mac

@fivewalls @beneltham @dannolan If you prefer to read off paper, fine, but FFS you lose your “content” if your house burns. Have backups?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fivewalls

@fivewalls @beneltham @dannolan Sorry, WTF does ANY of that bleating have to do with the quality of the news or novel you’re reading?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fivewalls

@beneltham @dannolan I once wrote a thing about the paper fetish, in the context of books and bleating novelists. crikey.com.au/2009/07/21/lit…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to beneltham

Every writer who conflates “journalism” with “newspapers”, the process with the factory and distribution mechanism, should be slapped HARD.

via Janetter for Mac

So have people notcied how @BernardKeane’s drugs have kicked in?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

So, you lawyer types who follow me, any of you are or know someone good with workplace privacy and surveillance law?

via Janetter for Mac

@matt_levinson @piawaugh Yes I am glad you put the word ‘secret’ in scare-quotes because otherwise I would have to kill your entire family.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to matt_levinson

Jesus, almost use a sachet of decaffeinated coffee by mistake. Why do hotels even do that?

via Janetter for Mac

No, I’m not talking about anyone’s damn products ever again. Unless you say that everything is cool and awesome their heads explode.

via Janetter for Mac

Did I just see a commercial Twitter promotion that was, essentially, “Feeling down on Monday? Buy more stuff!”? Yes, yes I did.

via Janetter for Mac

Hint to politicians regarding the asylum seeker thing: the issue is NOT about your re-election chances but being human. Try to imagine that!

via Janetter for Mac

Why did I ever agree to do a podcast that had the word “Monday” in the title? Was I drunk?

via Janetter for Mac

I am noting all your suggestions. The order of play will be: 1. this coffee; 2. long hot shower; 3. read news over breakfast; 4. production.

via Janetter for Mac

“A good start”?

via Janetter for Mac

BTW, it’s like this every day for producers of live talk radio. We’re on in three hours and have no idea what we’re doing… Two hours…

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile @bleeters @R_Chirgwin Patent battles? That would require talking to lawyers. On a Monday. I get to charge extra for that, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Or maybe an episode that’s just 29 minutes of the sound of me quietly sobbing, with traffic heard in the background.

via Plume for Android

Would it be acceptable to do a podcast that’s just reading out your tweets about football and Egypt? Oh no, that’s right, that’s television.

via Plume for Android

So I’m doing “Patch Monday” podcast from scratch today and I don’t even have a topic. Should have set an alarm. OK, getting out of bed now.

via Plume for Android

RT @clutterbells RT @Gizmodo Why Spotify didn’t exist in the ’80’s. Hilarious. gizmo.do/gt3w

via Plume for Android

Monday? But why? Surely there’s another way?
