OH: “Cessnock? It’s probably not your fault. It’s an accident of birth.”

via Plume for Android

RT @kofeyh: @stilgherrian sounds like a crappy app.

OH COME ON SOMEONE HAD TO SAY IT.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kofeyh

I just can’t wait until people’s colostomy bags start tweeting their fill level hourly through the kolost.my iPhone app.

RT @barrysaunders: @stilgherrian price is no object. [I am advised that when it comes to procuring children it never is.]

via Janetter for Mac

Putting my theory to the test.

via Janetter for Mac

There can’t possibly be any harm in having just one more beer.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @barrysaunders: I’ve spent all day []REDACTED]. I feel like a 12 year old. [I’ve no idea where to procure one at this hour sorry.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @vociferousmadam: @stilgherrian Swedes can’t swear! [This can’t possibly be true, surely?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vociferousmadam

OH, clean-shaven old bloke in the pub to fully-bearded old bloke: “There’s some Greek women with beards like that, mate.”

via Janetter for Mac

IKEA is self-satirising, @screelman.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @screelman: Can’t help you with Finnish, but could help you with Swedish cursing. That way you can offend people in IKEA!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to screelman

Clearly I must learn to swear in Finnish as well as Thai.

via Janetter for Mac

@mikko @juhasaarinen Swearing is fascinating. I must write up @ApostrophePong’s practical jokes in Thai with non-native speakers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stilgherrian Slut. [I beiieve the correct term is “audience development”.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@juhasaarinen @mikko @w_nicht Thanks for Tosiaan and links. I’ll explore once I’ve explained why Telstra shouldn’t export our web logs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Oh, sorry, there was a new fan at the pub and he introduced me to someone and drinks were bought.

via Janetter for Mac

@nphair Well @theprojecttv was phoning around late morning to find talent, but if they couldn’t get anyway the story can’t run.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nphair

@juhasaarinen @mikko Seriously, though, I found it fascinating that Finnish seems to be sideways from every other language on the planet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen @mikko Gentlemen, with the deepest respect, they are not actual words. They are the result of a long, long vodka session.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

RT @leslienassar: What’s Black Caviar’s position on TPVs? [Small drawing, bottom right of every TVP card issued since 1 December.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

Why do I suspect that something unnatural is going on between the Prime Minister and @firstdogonmoon?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @chrisjrn: @stilgherrian I bet nobody ended up watching it :/ [Yeah well I wasn’t there, obviously, but they must be taught a lesson.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

So who ended up going on @theprojecttv tonight to talk about the Telstra mobile web tracking thing?

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce Oh for sure, I come in VERY handy duri… I mean THEY become very handy during the holiday season. SEKRIT PLUM FAIRY SKILLZ.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Sure, if I had to choose the most appropriate tool for policy development in a modern complex democracy, I’d have chosen Twitter.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce I am but a humble plum fairy at the end of a long and stressful day. Plum fairies are, to tell the truth, rather useless.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

So, a theme is developing here, isn’t it.

via Janetter for Mac

MT @GrahamPerrettMP: Julie Bishop was blocking Mal Washer’s passage … [No! No I can’t read any more of this tweet!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GrahamPerrettMP

That reminds me. I never wrote up the full comparative analysis of my with @Rove’s the following weekend.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Fisting as opposed to shafting, methinks. [Given my invention of Twitterfisting stilgherrian.com/human-nature/f… yes of course.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fairfax now has a “digital first” strategy? Well, yes, I recommend some gentle finger work to relax us before the full shafting…

via Janetter for Mac

@garystark @_LeonieGSmith If you’re going to speak disparagingly of the caper then I’m afraid I’ll have to ask you to step outside.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garystark

@lomantik Thank you. But I really just tweet the stuff that happens in my head. Well not all of it, obviously. @miss_shiny

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lomantik

@mikko @juhasaarinen Also, Australian experts would never develop a word that long. Too much effort.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

Oh yeah. Google Translate. So, @mikko @juhasaarinen, what differentiates a hupputakkihakkeri from any other hoddie? The grim determination?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

@mikko @juhasaarinen So, simply “hood-wearing hackers”? We did a tiny look at Finnish in my linguistics course, but that was before WWI.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stilgherrian I assume anything north of the Arctic Circle is vodka slush. [If not, why not? Ping @mikko @juhasaarinen]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@bastardsheep Yeah. We all worried about nanobots doing the grey goo thing to the whole planet. Who knew it’d end up being the Grey @smeg?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bastardsheep

I don’t actually know what means but given @mikko and @juhasaarinen I assume it involves reindeer and too much vodka.

via Janetter for Mac

So it’s true, @mikko. Hackers wear hoodies. Or balaclavas. Or both. pinterest.com/mikkohypponen/… Or is it just ? /cc @juhasaarinen

@sirneggles I grew up on a dairy farm. I think I’ll be the judge of what to do with cows. stilgherrian.com/50-to-50/03/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sirneggles

RT @Rubenerd: Still no word about my phone data. Been almost 48 hours since I paid the bill! [Don’t worry. It’s in Chicago.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Rubenerd

Your fixation with haemorrhoids disturbs me, @miss_shiny.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to miss_shiny

Fuck the cows, I say.

via Janetter for Mac

@_LeonieGSmith It just arrived. It has a cheesey creamy sauce, and what look like chopped chives.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LeonieGSmith

Yes, corned beef is an agreeable choice.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Dr_Craig_Wright: @stilgherrian Come on…you make at least as much hot air as I do :) [Well yeah there is that…]

So while you lot have just been sitting there contributing to global warming, I’ve showered and dressed and caught a cab into the village.

via Plume for Android

As the sun sets, it’s finally warm enough to take off my clothes and have a shower. Will I then have enough energy to go to dinner?

via Janetter for Mac

@BrigadierSlog Thank you. No need to rush, though, I don’t think I’d be able to get UK speakers sorted for this week’s episode.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog Oh my email address isn’t secret. It’s all over the shop. stil@stilgherrian.com does the trick. As do the spam filters.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog Well, my brain is too fuzzy to take all that in right now, but I’ve made a note to have a look tomorrow. Thanks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@nanopunk Yeah well NOW who’s the size queen, eh?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

@BrigadierSlog Is there really anything new and different about the way that happened though? Wasn’t it just the same thing scaled up?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@nanopunk @Prohairetic @BundyB @PointZeroOne I could really go one of those intergalactic grub things right now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

Clothing, @GreenJ? I always thought tha wast the Member for Mackellar’s natural outer derma?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@BrigadierSlog Is Natwest RBS still essentially the same IT management upfuckage as before, or is it a new and different kind of upfuckage?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

@BrigadierSlog Ah yeah, sorry. There’s no “Patch Monday”podcast this week. I fucked up my planning. In hindsight I was quite the idiot.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BrigadierSlog

RT @PointZeroOne: @stilgherrian do you know something we don’t? @Prohairetic @BundyB @nanopunk [Quite likely, I imagine.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

Yes, @johnthelutheran, I’m sure I can work an e into there somewhere. It’s more efficient that way anyway. Sorry, what?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnthelutheran

I have determined that it’s currently too cold in this building (“The Studio”) to have a shower. I’m now waiting for faster-vobrating atoms.

via Janetter for Mac

@BundyB @PointZeroOne Look you may mock @nanopunk now, but in the future she will keep you all safe from the intergalactic worm things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

RT @kcarruthers: @stilgherrian do you remain unwashed & undressed whilst using ‘cyber’ twice? [Yes. Yes I do.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Using “cyber” in a sentence. Twice. So it’s even better.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “‘It’s how we connect’: Telstra and the spy sites mystery” (No, I don’t either, but I’m tired.) crikey.com.au/2012/06/27/its…

Schrödinger’s email.

via Plume for Android

RT @BernardKeane Phillip “it” Ruddock now rises to claim vindication [You forgot the bit about gnawing on the flesh of infants.]

via Plume for Android

It’s 1500 and I still haven’t had that shower, but I’m going to open up that email anyway. We can all be unclean together on the internet.

via Plume for Android

I’m still not sure why Ms Rinehart is presenting in Question Time but I’m sure Twitter will make that clear as we go along. It usually does.

via Plume for Android

“Fairfax. I thought it was so bad I bought the company.” No wait.

via Plume for Android

Gina Rinehart attacked Earth Hour? Now that’s the kind of woman I could love. No, I’m not drawing a diagram.

via Plume for Android

RT @BZB Why is Sarah Hansen-Young in the Chamber? [Ballast.]

via Plume for Android in reply to BZB

Sod it. Addictive alkaloid stimulants before any of that.

via Plume for Android

RT @SnarkyPlatypus @stilgherrian Email requires cleanliness. [Depends on the email. And the recipients, surely?

via Plume for Android

@TelstraTim I live by the motto about writing that’s at the top of my website.

via Plume for Android in reply to TelstraTim

The firewood has been dealt with. So shower then open email? Or email first?

via Plume for Android

I didn’t write that joke.

via Plume for Android

A collaborative effort has yielded clean things. And now I must, um, help with the firewood.

via Janetter for Mac

For my next trick, I shall make Banksia Cottage look a little less like I trashed it.

via Janetter for Mac

@TelstraTim Oh no, that’s quite OK. I don’t need Telstra “clearing up” my opinion as I’m writing. Here or Chicago. ;) I’ll shut up now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TelstraTim

@TelstraTim Thanks. Any poor analysis can now be deflected with a “just as this story was being filed…” ;) I wouldn’t want your job today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TelstraTim

@TelstraTim Thanks, Tim. Do you know roughly when that was posted? Just so I correctly word the tag I’m about to add to the story.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TelstraTim

Story filed for @crikey_news. Meanwhile, I turned down @theprojecttv because I have another thing to write and can’t get into Sydney today.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose unshaven, unwashed, wrapped in a blanket, is right and proper for writing about Telstra tracking and exporting web usage data.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stilgherrian You need more coke and hookers. [THIS GOES WITHOUT SAYING WHY IS THIS NOT HAPPENING ALREADY?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

In a cottage in a forest, unshaven for days, unwashed, wrapping myself in a blanket to start writing. Journalism, the glamour profession!

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s 4.9C here at @bunjaree, the eucalypt scrub suffused with fog. Much like this photo from last time. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Wed plan: Write for @crikey_news; bump out Banksia Cottage; plan Sydney vs Blue Mountains schedule; shopping; write blog post; stay warm.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Le monde est encore dans le chaos, mais comme bien de la crème fouettée il devrait commencer à raidir aujourd’hui.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I’ll also confirm that there won’t be a “Patch Monday” podcast at all this week. I’m thinking civilisation might just be able to survive.

via Janetter for Mac

Before I plan the day I’m writing a thing, to myself mostly, explaining how both “Patch Monday” and my @CSO_Australia article went bad.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s two hours until sunrise. Hello, Wednesday.
