The utility of the Emergency Duck is being lessened by a concomitant peformance of shit covers of Prince songs.

via Janetter for Mac

@gsperk All of ZDNet’s podcast feeds are broken, I’m afraid. Badly-formed XML generated by the new global CMS. No ETA for a fix, sorry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gsperk

Investigating the duck situation. Or about to, anyway, after a short walk.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, I’m with @oberonsghost on this one, @SnarkyPlatypus. Though there’s always a chance that something other than duck would be obtained.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

Wondering whether it might be worth deploying the Emergency Duck this evening, or whether that would be overkill.

Somehow, @atirere, I think kigu.me is not for me. Not in formal situations anyway. But thank you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to atirere

@chrisbrownie @mpesce @wolfcat I’ve been called a lot worse. Still, you know that being stabbed wouldn’t be anything personal, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@R_Chirgwin Yeah it seems the PPP authentication is rooted. So anyone who drops off can’t get back on. They must be stressed beyond belief.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

As expected, there are no @iiNet internets in Lilyfield.

via Plume for Android

@EnsignR Stylists exist, advising on clothes for executives, films, all manner of public figures.

via Plume for Android in reply to EnsignR

@chrisbrownie @mpesce @wolfcat I have neither owned nor worn a suit since I left school.

via Plume for Android in reply to chrisbrownie

I am currently escaping the CBD.

@jeamland I’m fairly sure that a surveillance and targeting satellite was just moved into position to cover your every move.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@bluntshovels Oh as I said before, I have a bunch of speaking engagements coming up. Plus I’m doing more TV these days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bluntshovels

@wolfcat I. Am. Not. Taking. Fashion. Advice. From. @mpesce. That. Must. Be. Understood.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wolfcat

@SnarkyPlatypus Is this the “If it’s good enough for Sir David Attenborough” principle as it relates to safari suits?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s purely a matter of showing a little respect for the aesthetics of other people’s stages. So, um, Shakespearian?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Yin_Izanami @jamezpolley Fortunately my Next G phone’s data billing cycle rolls over tonight at midnight. I will be able to cope. Probably.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

I need a stylist to tell me what sort of clothes I might look good in. (The answer “none of the above” is not acceptable.)

via Janetter for Mac

Gawd I’ve got rather a lot of speaking engagements coming up.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m sure that I know people who have tools which will ensure said neighbours’ wireless doesn’t stay secure for very long…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Yin_Izanami I AM HAPPY TO GIVE YOU LESSONS IN SCROLL BARS AND POSSIBLY ALSO THE CAPSLOCK KEY WHICH IS SOMETHING WE ALL NEED TO UNDERSTAND.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

@Yin_Izanami So, when you discover the utility of the scroll bar, you’ll see what my situation is… ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

Hmmm… It’s sounding like there still won’t be any @iiNet ADSL when I get back to Lilyfield. That’s going to prove inconvenient.

via Janetter for Mac

@rashasman @CommBank I still don’t understand why the lazy sods find their PIN to be such a burden.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rashasman

@rashasman I did ask @CommBank about NFC. They say they need cooperation from the vendors in giving access to the secure parts of the chip.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rashasman

@Andrew_Zammit Thank you. Yes, that conversation with @RidT was fascinating. I’ll definitely invite him back again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh I don’t think it’s the banks that make the money from my insecurity…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

My work at the big yellow and black bank is done. Words recorded for a podcast, there is. The next thing appears to be called “Peroni”.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen @stilgherrian Nice is a bit like self-harming, isn’t it? [Yes.]

via Plume for Android

Jeez, these banks must be pretty cashed up. Oh. Yeah.

via Plume for Android

Entering which bank? Because I can. I used to have an office in this building.

via Plume for Android

I’m a nice piece of work. Like that, @juhasaarinen …

Lurking in the vicinity of a financial services organisation, where I’m due at 1500.

via Plume for Android

OH: “I think when you say ‘fashionable’ you mean ‘common’.”

via Plume for Android

I wonder if Jason Donovan remembers meeting me. Remembering things wasn’t his strong suit at that time.

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Lunch; light rail to Sydney CBD: 1500 meeting Commonweath Bank; remainder TBA and enjoyed.

via Janetter for Mac

@iiNet @S7U @NikkitaDixon @iimjones Ta for all the commentary on this one. Looks like a doosey!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iiNet

@NikkitaDixon @S7U @iiNet The support person on the callback just now said that the exchanges out in NSW are “pretty much all of them”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NikkitaDixon

Oh well, that memory limit is only hit in the admin interface, and then only when editing a particularly long page. No rush to solve it.

via Janetter for Mac

@Tuna So “grep -R ‘memory_limit’ *”, is what I say! ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Tuna

@Tuna The host in this case is me, and that’s been ruled out too. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Tuna

@iiNet Thanks muchly for that. Sadly my tethered phone keeps switching IP addresses, so not a good substitute. @NikkitaDixon

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iiNet

@Tuna @trib @mjec Already ahead of you all on that one, guys. The EAA is becoming malodorous. Wondering if there’s some SEKRIT Apache wank.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Tuna

@iiNet I haven’t got a callback yet, but I suspect the problem isn’t just those three exchanges. ;) @NikkitaDixon

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iiNet

@kofeyh Way ahead of you, Sir! Some quite Advanced Arsehattery is going on here. Excellent Advanced Arsehattery.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kofeyh

This is especially annoying given that phpinfo() reports that mem_limit is actually 256M you silly silly and quite ill-informed computer.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear WordPress, I have told you that define(‘WP_MEMORY_LIMIT’, ’128M’); therefore “Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted” is arse.

via Janetter for Mac

@iiNet Oh I see! Thanks. The fault report didn’t list the exchanges. I shall call and whinge momentarily. Cheers. @R_Chirgwin @NikkitaDixon

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iiNet

Well the 0800 interview that became the 0830 interview went rather well. At least something is working this week!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mikko: Never judge a douche by its bag.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mikko

Actually no, I’ll try yo do the recording now using SkypeOut, since that seems to be more reliable than SkypeIn. Maybe I should use pigeons.

via Janetter for Mac

0800 interview recording is moved to 0900 because Skype doesn’t seen to reliably offer inbound calls through its SkypeIn numbers.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus A replacement machine is around $2600. An extra $1500 for a speed and battery life bump isn’t something I can afford.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Waiting for my 0800 interviewee to call. I hope it’s not that thing where SkypeIn numbers go unreliable.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Liquid damage isn’t covered by warranty. Apple replaces major sections whole. Motherboard and keyboard assemblies here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fri plan: 0800 Websense phone interview; de-rice house; tidy table; brunch; more interviews Sydney CBD; TGIF, with an early collapse.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Pas tout à fait. L’ordinateur peut ne pas récupérer. Est-il donc 1100 $ + pour les réparations? Ou une nouvelle machine?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli de plus d’un peu de confusion et beaucoup de fatigue. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Something needs to be done about my appalling sleep patterns. Bombing Castle Hill might work.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh thank you, IMAP, for taking the emails I just wanted to move from one folder to another and disintegrating them. I do love your work.

via Janetter for Mac

IMAP is the work of the Devil.

via Janetter for Mac

It appears that @iiNet cannot provide the internets at Lilyfield because iinet.net.au/status/fault.p… Ping @R_Chirgwin

via Janetter for Mac

For those following at home, I’ve put the hard drive from my comatose MacBook Pro into an old MacBook (thanks @oberonsghost) until success.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Here we are then. And it’s Friday. Let’s see if we can clean up this disaster called Planet Earth.
