@NewtonMark Alas no, the RSS feed is still broken wrt the .mp3 enclosures. I know they have a fault report in.

via Plume for Android in reply to NewtonMark

OH, young man placating new lady friend: “No, I come here all the time. I’ve just never had CityRail people chasing me before.”

via Plume for Android

And for making new friends.

via Plume for Android

Sigh. Napalm is not for burning in little decorative pots. Napalm is for splattering by the dozens of litres into your foes.

via Plume for Android

@mpesce @nanopunk @jplonie That wouldn’t even be stable at room temperature. Useless.

via Plume for Android in reply to mpesce

@middleclassgirl So that San Andreas fault thingo, can it be encouraged?

via Plume for Android in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@jplonie @nanopunk Just make Napalm B. Much easier, I’ve found. Erm, I’m told.

via Plume for Android in reply to jplonie

Tapas. Android doesn’t know what tapas is. And it’s from the Bay area. Pathetic.

via Plume for Android

OH: “So where’s your lady? She’s still at that tapes place? But it’s 9.30! That’s just weird.”

THERE WAS A REASON I WAS TAUGHT TO USE MILITARY GRADE WEAPONS AND THIS IS THE REASON I KNOW IT.

IT’S 2100 ON A FRIDAY NIGHT IN SYDNEY WHAT SORT OF DEPRESSING HIPSTER ARSHATS ORDERS HOT CHOCOLATE KILL THEM NOW.

I’ll up your ante!

Right, you little pig, I’ve got you right where I want you.

OH: “But she’s changed so much since I’ve moved in. Is she jealous? She’s just so rude to me now.” instagr.am/p/MvIA3TiFta/

OH: “The reason she’s doing that is just looking for attention.” “But she’s good a good life!” instagr.am/p/MvHhxuiFtW/

Screw you, I’m outta here. instagr.am/p/MvFP9miFs8/

I started typing “spammy” but Android suggested “sodomy” so, well, it’s the weekend I suppose…

via Plume for Android

@zdnetaustralia @AdamFowler_IT @purserj I’m trying not to be too spammy but I may whore around the manual url a bit more on the weekend.

via Plume for Android in reply to zdnetaustralia

THAT THING THAT I HAVE BEEN DOING WELL I AM STILL DOING IT.

via Plume for Android

@AdamFowler_IT @zdnetaustralia RSS feed is still broken? Alas I’ve no ETA. I’m rather removed from all that, I’m afraid, a mere stringer.

via Plume for Android in reply to AdamFowler_IT

Oh. That new website wasn’t about what I had hoped.

via Janetter for Mac

I AM STILL WAITING PATIENTLY.

via Plume for Android

@johnthelutheran You would rather the nuclear waste be transported at INCREDIBLY FAST SPEEDS OH-SO-SAFELY? ‘Cos that’d be fun.

via Plume for Android in reply to johnthelutheran

@Knorts Why would anyone hate a shop? I mean, apart from psychopaths?

via Plume for Android in reply to aahmusing

Still waiting patiently.

@iain_chalmers I’m fairly sure that I can’t even DO petulant!

via Plume for Android in reply to iain_chalmers

@CommBank Thanks for that. It seems sometimes apparent inconsistency is a deliberate, rational decision! @vxx2

via Plume for Android in reply to CommBank

I appears that and Twitter’s API limit are about to conspire, @riskybusiness and spectators.

via Janetter for Mac

They stare into the pit, seeking the city’s lost soul. instagr.am/p/MuqTiIiFl0/

via Instagram

@riskybusiness I’ll write about this, I think, ‘cos while I acknowledge the reality of being visible I’m talking about something different.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness And it’s precisely that attitude that I think is deeply, deeply wrong.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness That is, the very entity that’s in a privileged position to protect the comms deliberately jeopardised it.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness The difference here is that someone didn’t randomly stumble upon it. It was deliberately, systematically leaked by the telco.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I understand your points. I just disagree. I think it’s important to sustain a bit of attention at this sort of level too.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I gather you subscribe to the theory that if you didn’t hide it well enough then it ain’t private? I don’t.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness Attention to this issue a little now doesn’t preclude attention to other issues too. Walk, chew gum etc.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I don’t deny there may be more serious immediate problems, but that’s not a good reason to gloss over issues of principle.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I’m saying both, I think. I believe it’s illegal IANAL, I think it’s wrong regardless, I’m concerned it’s a wrong attitude.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I’ve seen your comments, but for me this is simply “Oi, not your data to be doing ANYTHING with except intended dest”.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness Perhaps, but it’s not about PII I reckon. It’s any piece of comms being transmitted to 3rd party. I’m with Huston. Telco Act.

via Plume for Android in reply to riskybusiness

Now @bengrubb is ruining our fantasy. There’s a sentence you don’t see every Friday.

via Plume for Android

@bengrubb Was there anything along the lines of very few? Clearly I had the impression of it being dismissed as a minor problem.

via Plume for Android in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb Bugger. I was reading other stuff while listening. Did I paraphrase something and mistakenly quote-mark? I’ll retrace steps later.

via Plume for Android in reply to bengrubb

With age comes less collagen. Rather than stretching, skin tears. It’s inevitable. But the pain receptors fade also. A balance.

via Plume for Android

There’s a slight ulceration at every crease in the greying skin of each cheek.

via Plume for Android

Decaying teeth. Bleeding gums. Long passionate kisses.

50 Shades of Yellow, in fact.

via Plume for Android

Maybe not buttplugs. Maybe fingers. Fat, nicotine-stained fingers with worn-down nails.

via Plume for Android

Good Lord! The jewels on that woman’s wedding ring are bigger than buttplugs!

via Plume for Android

I hereby declare it Christmas holidays.

via Plume for Android

I’m SO joining the Islamic Vegan Sexworkers Association, @firstdogonmoon, though without the vegan bit. Android wants to make it “Vegas”.

via Plume for Android

Je suis très fatigué.

via Janetter for Mac

@neerav Yes, but “small” is context-dependent. 1% can be ignored if it’s “doesn’t work in 40C heat”, critical if “explodes killing us all”.

via Plume for Android in reply to neerav

@PointZeroOne So the usual maths then. Cyanogen installs divided by eleventy billion.

via Plume for Android in reply to PointZeroOne

I just walked past something billed as “a Jamie Oliver restaurant”, yet I did not set fire to it.

via Plume for Android

Are there any reliable stats on the proportion of rooted / jailbroken smartphones? My suspicion is “vanishingly small”.

via Plume for Android

@vxx2 It’s certainly curious that one @CommBank app works with rooted, one not. I shall enquire.

via Plume for Android in reply to vxx2

@sarah_j_smith I’ll have a look at the video when I’m not on mobile bandwidth.

via Plume for Android in reply to sarah_j_smith

Mobile: Light rail to Sydney CBD; lunch; remainder TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

@vxx2 @CommBank “Supports” rooted handsets, or “seems to work OK” on them? I’d be wary of secure software on rooted devices.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vxx2

@engochick Well, maybe 45 minutes. Memory is… sorry, what were we talking about?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engochick

I don’t think I’ve watched ANY video longer than 30 minutes where people were wearing clothes.

via Janetter for Mac

@sarah_j_smith A FIFTY MINUTE VIDEO TO LEARN THAT SOME BLOKES LIED ABOUT STUFF ARE YOU MAD?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sarah_j_smith

I seem to have written a thing about @CommBank’s and social banking and stuff at @technologyspec technologyspectator.com.au/cashing-kaching

Wondering when I should turn on The Machine… stilgherrian.com/internet/gerry…

@cameronbec @bleeters @dfg77 @ConcupiscentGuy Just flagging that a pile-on-News-Ltd outrage du jour isn’t the only way of looking at it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Berecker

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, @SupratimA is reading it now, but I trust him to appreciate the hardships I’ve endured for this story.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@tlcassandra @SnarkyPlatypus @technologyspec It’s amazing what Google Translate and a couple years of high school French can do!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tlcassandra

And… that’s the @technologyspec article filed. @SupratimA did say “Go for it!”, so 600 words became, erm, 1400. Cough.

via Janetter for Mac

It’d be fairly stupid to assume that because I mentioned Point B that I had “missed” Point A.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently in a democracy the free media are required to do what the head of the army tells them. In a democracy. Free media.

The remarkable thing about Twitter is that it enables people in all walks of life to discover that it gets colder in winter.

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian @sylmobile I like those giant brake pedals. Needs some feet on them. [I shall arrange a picture later.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

RT @sylmobile: Form over function pic.twitter.com/raaChCHr [So this? “Wankitecture Sydney: why bother?” stilgherrian.com/arts/wankitect… Ah yes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui. Il ya une section centrale en expliquant en détail notre sodomisation par M. Zuckerberg. @technologyspec seront ravis.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je vous écris un article de fond peu de choses sur la fin de la civilisation. Je suis, par conséquent, heureux!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, I’m writing now. Tweets may be desperate pleas for you to do free work for me interspersed with venting at the arsehattery encountered.

via Janetter for Mac

johnthelutheran Amazon seems to think S&M pr0n is a “related category” to Lutheran history. Well actually, now you mention it… ;-pic.twitter.com/0Szf4Fsnsn

Fri plan: Write about @CommBank’s for @technologyspec by 1000; early lunch; record “Patch Monday” podcast; cocktail hour.

via Janetter for Mac

@bengrubb So, there’s two words. “Minority” which I used, “Majority” which you used. Scrolling suggests I was listening to “Twisted Wire”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bengrubb

Right. Here we go.
