@moldor I’m not sure you can criticise Apple’s hardware for not coping when a drink is poured over it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to moldor

@franksting Yes, I don’t know what happened with that link. I’m too tired to figure it out but try stilgherrian.com/personal/expen…

@smperris Oh yes, dd is pretty much everywhere, as are all of those low-level utilities. They’re what Unix is built from.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

Thanks also to @S7U @custa1200 @smperris for suggesting SuperDuper shirt-pocket.com/SuperDuper/Sup… but I may just use dd.

via Janetter for Mac

@moldor Oh yes. The brokded Mac story is told in part at stilgherrian.com/personal/expen… the rest in bitter tweets.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to moldor

RT @chrisbrownie: @stilgherrian dd [Yes, this is true. And I do know how to use such things. Thanks for the reminder.]

Dear Lazyweb, what’s the quickest OS X tool for cloning a hard drive?

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on. I’ll have to return the machine to service with its original HDD installed. So now I have to close the HDD tomorrow. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll be dropping off the machine at the Apple Store in Chatswood Chase, ‘cos that’s the only one with appoitntments that fit my schedule.

via Janetter for Mac

Doing up the screws.

via Janetter for Mac

I just realised I can reassemble my MacBook Pro with @oberonsghost’s OS X HDD to confirm that it magically came back to life.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @GumbyRoffo: @stilgherrian at least your not holding the two complete security bit sets. :-\ [Sad but quite possibly true. Sympathies.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GumbyRoffo

@SnarkyPlatypus @JohnBirmingham Yeah but the wretched bogans are usually desperate for a root so you… um, no, never mind.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The very fact that I own Torx screwdrivers marks me as a loser.

via Janetter for Mac

You’re only jealous because he’s got a book and you haven’t.

via Janetter for Mac

@henaredegan Sorry, I have a “toned down version of a rant”. I think you may be a little confused…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to henaredegan

@ChuckieCh There’s a part of us all that simply doesn’t want to face reality. Joy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ChuckieCh

@henaredegan Thank you. My irritation at the “It was on Twitter!” news made it an easy piece to write. crikey.com.au/2012/07/11/twi…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to henaredegan

Avoiding reassembling the MacBook Pro because I don’t want to face the likely awful truth, and it means being without this computer.

New blog post: “Talking DNSChanger on ABC Local Radio”, with last week’s audio. Yes, I’m running late. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

@manaz_d Indeed. But the thing is, I’m not actually interested in games.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to manaz_d

@ozdj Oh. I probably should have looked up @DrewUnsworth on Twitter, t be consistent. Oh well. Hi, Drew.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

Bleeding. From a shaving cut. Of course. Just below the nose. Of course. So I should stop bleeding some time in 2035. Sigh.

@swearyanthony @NewtonMark @BobGrrl @jeamland @D_Keating Thank you. So another thing that I probably won’t get around to. [nods]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to swearyanthony

@NewtonMark I do not understand the “cake is a lie” reference. Is there a Thing that I should be aware of?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@SnarkyPlatypus @jeamland My well-known self-control has prevented me from immediately using that as my Twitter avatar.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

What’s wrong with cake?

via Janetter for Mac

The “Patch Monday” podcast, it is filed.

via Janetter for Mac

@i386 Sorry, what was the question? Or, this blog post on the blog blogs about it. stilgherrian.com/personal/expen…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to i386

So it turns out that my podcast production workflows run significantly slower on a computer with only 2GB of RAM. Who knew?

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank Teaching backpackers the Responsible Service of Alcohol is one of Planet Earth’s great ironies.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

I am now in the Podcast Editing Zone. So shut your cake-holes.

via Janetter for Mac

That sentence doesn’t even make sense, let alone offer practical advice for living.

via Janetter for Mac

Stab it, just in case.

via Janetter for Mac

I see that hackinfo.tk, to which @crikey_news was redirected during its weekend hack, has been taken down for abuse. hackinfo.tk

@SnarkyPlatypus Et comment va votre lundi destiné à élaborer? Est-ce que des armes automatiques être nécessaire?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I am full of breakfast. Now, I shall make an article that is full of words, and a podcast that is full of even more words.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli de la détermination que cette semaine sera moins chaotique que la dernière. En outre, des conneries.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ozdj No, you can’t let them into the club until they’re at least 18.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj Didn’t you get the memo? It’s Annual Rub Noses With Your Workmates Day!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

Mon plan: Write for @CSO_Australia; finish “Patch Monday” podcast; write 2 blog posts; attempt final MacBook Pro recovery; re-budget; cry.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite I know those liquid-sensitive dob-stickers, but can’t see one in the MacBook Pro. I assume it’s Macical Invisible DobTech now.

Hello, Monday. Yes, it’s early, but I’m making up for doing SFA yesterday. And it was good.
