GIANT CHICKENS ON THE INTERNET!

via Janetter for Mac

I still don’t understand why Tony Jones has started killing his program guests. Well, I do actually.

via Janetter for Mac

Since I’ll be up early, writing, I’m going to be mostly ignoring you now. It’s been special.

via Janetter for Mac

White and green buttons, @juhasaarinen. The Machine is demonstrated at 4 min 20 sec into this bit of the episode. youtube.com/watch?v=kigFI9…

via Janetter for Mac

RT again: Blog post, apropos of my most recent tweets: “Gerry Anderson’s greatest invention” stilgherrian.com/internet/gerry… [PRESSING. THE. BUTTON.]

via Janetter for Mac

Well, that seems to have caught a few people’s interest on a rainy Thursday night.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. @phildobbie says “zee-dee-net” not “zed-dee-net”. He’s already caved in to the cultural imperialism as @zdnetaustralia morphs. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

RT @pressdarling: Skinny dudes in double-breasted jackets: why? [Because Australia’s overly-restrictive firearms laws.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pressdarling

RT @NewtonMark: Universal Declaration of Human Rights article 12. [Oh. So this bit here then? en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal… Yeah that.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@jamezpolley My sincerest apology for a couple of tweets not capturing the entire subtlety of a 30-minute podcast conversation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

@jamezpolley As Geoff Huston explains, the language of the Telecommunications Act is rather straightforward.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

@jamezpolley Have you listened to the podcast? Knowledge of the URL should go to where required for my comms, and nowhere else. Full stop.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

RT @joshrowe: @stilgherrian sounds like a good reason to send everything down the wire via SSL [Agree 100%. Seems telcos can’t be trusted.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshrowe

@jamezpolley That’s deliberately obtuse. Very poor analogy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

Even if it IS a “tiny” percentage, Telstra, IT’S NOT YOUR GODDAM DATA! Your job is to prevent ANYTHING about my comms being sent elsewhere.

via Janetter for Mac

“Tiny minority” of URLs have personal IDs encoded not as query strings, Telstra? You’ve got research to back that up? Published where?

via Janetter for Mac

On @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast, Telstra waves it away as just failing to explain it properly. WTF? zdnet.com/is-your-phone-…

via Janetter for Mac

On the “Patch Monday” podcast, Geoff Huston says law enforcement agencies should now be involved. zdnet.com/hands-off-our-…

via Janetter for Mac

I’m starting to get even less impressed with Telstra’s response to this send-my-URLs offshore thing. Zero comprehension it’s not their data.

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardKeane It’s like a pollie in 1982 having not heard of “Japan”. Major shaping force for decades, yet ignorance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane I don’t get why pollies other than @Birmo @SenatorLudlam @TurnbullMalcolm @KateLundy and maybe 2 others aren’t embarrassed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane Did you use the “word” “cyber-savvy” today? Really? And you don’t feel, like, dirty at all?

via Janetter for Mac

It must be hell at @zdnetaustralia, getting everything working on a new CMS. I figure I’ll just plug stuff that seems to be being missed.

via Janetter for Mac

Can I be arsed scrolling back?

via Janetter for Mac

Nope, podcast RSS feeds at @zdnetaustralia are still broken. I’ll replug “Patch Monday” later. And “Twisted Wire”, if @phildobbie got it up.

via Janetter for Mac

@fiona_greens Ah, it just takes confidence. And arrogance. Do that and you’ll be in government in no time!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fiona_greens

@nazzer You can also hear Geoff Huston talk about the Telstra URL offshoring thingo on “Patch Monday”. zdnet.com/hands-off-our-…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nazzer

BernardKeane A cult that believes in Xenu, DC-8 starships and trapped aliens must know what it’s talking about when it says something’s “preposterous”.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 6:27 PM, Jul 5th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Now, is there anyone I haven’t offended yet today? Anyone feeling left out?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @joshgnosis: I can’t tell if the mothball smell on my train is an old person or a hipster in opshop clothes. [They’re interchangeable.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

Competitive cycling? Drugs? Really? And no-one suspected? Gosh.

via Plume for Android

I can’t possibly respond to ALL your tweets about the General Sydney Cluedearth today, but you know I love you. With a broom handle.

via Plume for Android

They are all playing with their things. instagr.am/p/MsN1LWCFjD/

via Instagram

Paul_Murton Don’t bother complaining abt taxis to Transport NSW. Still waiting for a response to mine lodged on 27/5 despite 2 follow-up calls. Useless.

via Echofon (retweeted on 5:25 PM, Jul 5th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

RT me: New blog post, apropos of my most recent tweets: “Gerry Anderson’s greatest invention” stilgherrian.com/internet/gerry… [PRESSING. THE. BUTTON.]

via Janetter for Mac

I think it is important to lecture those who criticise you, ideally adopting a patronising tone.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently all scroll bars have ceased to operate now. On the entire internet.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @0x1C: I can think of about 27001 reasons for a beer or six right now. [I can think of only 1337, so I fail.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 0x1C

New blog post, apropos of my most recent tweets: “Gerry Anderson’s greatest invention” stilgherrian.com/internet/gerry…

via Janetter for Mac

Is Sydney holding a Stupid Cunt convention today?

via Janetter for Mac

So, doors. You know doors? Doors are magical. If you close them after yourself, that freezing cold draught you’re complaining about stops.

via Janetter for Mac

YES, I WILL GLADLY FIGURE OUT YOUR BUSINESS’ NEEDS BY ASSEMBLING YOUR SERIES OF RANDOM BRAINFART EMAILS INTO CLEAR INSTRUCTIONS.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen No no no, I’m just reminiscing. Tuna. Pork. Tuna and pork. At the time time. In my mouth.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

RT @jdub: I give you… MELBOURNE. R@firstdogonmoonon: someone on this tram smells of guinea pig hutch

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jdub

Pigs: Tuna of the Sty.

via Janetter for Mac

Whoever decided to combine yellow fin tuna and pork with the sharpness of grapefruit deserves a knighthood.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jplonie: @jturner_ibrs @stilgherrian take a look at the permissions CBA ask for in facebook on both sides of the transaction. [Hmmm?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

RT @stevemcilhatton: @stilgherrian re:banking surely a complete wank is better than an incomplete one? [Oh. Yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stevemcilhatton

@shivakum The bottle is useless. It is empty.

We’re still in the Q&A, mains just arriving now.

via Plume for Android

Why is doing your banking in Facebook seen as a good thing? It’s like flushing your toilet thru your car dashboard.

via Plume for Android

@nickgilbert No NFC yet, not enough devices to be worth it. Yet. No timeframe given.

via Plume for Android in reply to nickgilbert__

The @CommBank Bump, using GPS and accelerometers to confirm payment thru adjacent phones, is interesting but NOT P2P! Ahem.

via Plume for Android

I think @CommBank just announced that they’re abandoning arithmetic.

via Plume for Android

“Social banking” still sounds like a complete wank to me.

via Plume for Android

@vealmince Flying Fish. And I’d already chosen the tuna and the snapper.

via Plume for Android in reply to vealmince

@nickgilbert @semiboganman It’ll be a while before we get to Q&A.

via Plume for Android in reply to nickgilbert__

Yes, it’s  firm @CommBank … and sauvignon blanc.

via Plume for Android

About to arrive at @FlyingFishAU for the @CommBank briefing. Presumably Kaching for Android etc.

via Plume for Android

Has anyone suggested we all watch “Eat the Rich” tonight?

There seems to be a gap in the rain. I might make my way to Pyrmont now. I can amuse myself down there until @CommBank’s lunch starts.

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t go anywhere. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

@gavincostello @InnerWesty @pocketcasts So, I just said that the RSS feed is broken. SO IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT EFFING LAME APP YOU USE.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gavincostello

“Patch Monday” RSS feed broken, so new episode “Hands off our packets, it’s the law” with Geoff Huston can be found at zdnet.com/hands-off-our-…

via Janetter for Mac

@InnerWesty I retract that. That RSS feed does not appear to be iTunes compatible. At least it fails in iTunes for me just now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to InnerWesty

@InnerWesty “Patch Monday” podcast’s RSS feed was broken when @zdnetaustralia moved to a new CMS. new feed seems to be zdnet.com/blog/patch-mon…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to InnerWesty

RT @ozdj: @Rubenerd @stilgherrian @johncarneyau Bump is nothing to do with NFC. :-) [I know that NOW. But NFC is Teh Footure™, right?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj To be honest, the first thing I thought of with “Bump payments” was “NFC pickpockets”. Can’t be far away…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj Ta. I get confused by every little thing having a separate brand name. Are banks being like IT? My “bookmark” is your “favourite”?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

RT @c0up: Ooh, CBA’s Kaching adds the ability to check your account balance without logging in [So nothing could go wrong there…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to c0up

@ozdj What’s a “Bump payment” when it’s at home?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

RT @lukehopewell: Microsoft Australia wants a Social Media / Community Manager. seek.com.au/Job/social-med…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

How many times do you have to put up with the words “astral”, “spirit” and “reincarnation” before you’re permitted, nay required, to kill?

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell @dobes I am concerned that you have not yet plumbed the depths of despair with your laid-on-TV tweets.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

There’s gold in Leichhardt. instagr.am/p/MraRnFiFsz/

RT @chrisberg: the world went rapidly downhill when thatcher and reagan invented counting

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisberg

@dobes @lukehopewell I think a new standard has been set for our TV appearances. Mr P has a much better Being-on-TV shirt than I do. Sulks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Next time I’m on Lateline I’ll dress properly, for sure. abc.net.au/news/2012-07-0…

OH: “I might skip the custard tart. So just the Coke and the bacon and egg roll.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “A hangover? From last night’s football? Well what do you think we’ve got a welfare state for?”

via Janetter for Mac

Some wrong connections are being made, but I’m happy with that too. All hail Eris.

via Janetter for Mac

This calls for a sandwich, and I know where I can get one.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve decided that I won’t even try to be polite to mindless tribalists any more. I think you need to know how much I hold you in contempt.

via Janetter for Mac

Note to the hard-of-thinking: That I say one thing about one tribe does not mean I say the opposite about other tribes. You’re just stupid.

via Janetter for Mac

Most amusing is the endless defensive tribal posturing, as if somehow their own self-worth was intertwined with a US company’s image. Oh.

via Janetter for Mac

Seems the MSFT fans complaining it’s “shallow” have failed to notice it’s a teaser for a long-form magazine article. vanityfair.com/online/daily/2…

via Janetter for Mac

Reading comments on @VanityFair’s “Microsoft’s Downfall: Inside the Executive E-mails and Cannibalistic Culture That Felled a Tech Giant”…

via Janetter for Mac

I know this guy who was obsessed with the “fact” that a polar bear’s rectal temperature was one degree warmer than that of a human.

via Janetter for Mac

@ozdj Indeed. Apparently “The Next Evolution in Mobile Banking” needs a comprehensive wine list.

Dear Everybody Who Sends Me Email And Then Phones Three Times: It’s quite possible you and I have different understandings of “urgent”.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis impatient de mon déjeuner intime avec l’assassin robotique. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Ah HERE we go! This is a better link for the “Patch Monday” podcast. It’s about Telstra “sharing” your mobile web logs. is.gd/fp1L

via Janetter for Mac

There seems to be a new RSS feed for the “Patch Monday” podcast, which may or may not work. I haven’t tried it. zdnet.com/blog/patch-mon…

via Janetter for Mac

There IS a “Patch Monday” podcast, “Hands off our packets, it’s the law” with Geoff Huston, but the RSS feeds broke. zdnet.com/hands-off-our-…

Fuckin’ hipsters.
