Dear Twitterverse, someone reading what you tweet publicly is not “spying”. Get a fuckin’ grip.

RT @sylmobile Was Ayn Rand a fister?

via Plume for Android

@sylmobile Pretty much any Google Images search can be improved by adding “duck” to your search terms.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Copying data takes too long.

@dfg77 It’s a sad day for Australia when someone can’t say “shits” on the internet. @benpobjie

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dfg77

RT @sylmobile: There is a bloke on Lateline that has an appalling fashion sense. [This is true every night.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

So, that’s an enjoyable dinner with a special person over. Let’s look at this hard drive duplication thing then.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh little piggie that was just so much pleasure…

via Plume for Android

I continue to be amazed by the things you can do with a pig.

@R_Chirgwin Huh?I plan on using dd. I know dd quite well. It’s foolproof. Apart from swapping input and output files. I can cope.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Not THAT much wine. And I just have to clone a hard drive. I know what I’m doing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@sineadleebris Glad you found the radio spot interesting. Must admit, I find the human behavior thing endlessly fascinating. @reblev

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sineadleebris

Next on the agenda: Finish this wine; dinner; hard drive jiggery-pokery as part of the eternal struggle against entropy; ultimate victory.

via Janetter for Mac

And that’s the second and final radio spot done for the evening. I’ll post the recordings on the website tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for ABC @612brisbane and ABC Local Radio around QLD to talk Twitter, trolling etc. You can listen at abc.net.au/brisbane/

via Janetter for Mac

Radio spot number 1 done. Opening the wine before spot number 2.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold with Sydney radio FM99.3 to talk banking and Facebook with @phildobbie. You can listen at fm993.com.au

via Janetter for Mac

Look, it’s OK, I’ve sent an underling to obtain a corkscrew.

via Janetter for Mac

WHAT THE FUCK DO YOU MEAN THIS HOTEL ROOM DOESN’T HAVE A CORKSCREW WHAT ON EARTH CAN I POSSIBLY USE INSTEAD THIS IS TOTALLY UNREASONABLE.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @sylmobile: The list of top NSW licenced venues and alcohol-related assault and other violent incidents during 2011: arseh.at/1hdu

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

And after that, I’m going to a small bar in Kings Cross, where I shall drink 54 schooners of full-strength beer and kill a child.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m talking Twitter and trolling etc on ABC @612brisbane and ABC Local Radio around QLD at 1745 AEST. Streamed at abc.net.au/brisbane/

via Janetter for Mac

I’m talking banking and Facebook etc with @phildobbie on Sydney radio FM99.3 at 1915 AEST. Streamed at fm993.com.au

via Janetter for Mac

You know, when I look for role models for how to behave after a few drinks, my thoughts always turn to the NSW Police.

via Janetter for Mac

@MelanieTait @meadea @AustralianStory @safzoro So, do I have to explain what “margin of error” means again?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MelanieTait

So that explains the vast TV OB crew at Circular Quay, @sunriseon7, of which this is a tiny part. instagram.com/p/NKya9TCFuZ/

via Janetter for Mac

RT @sunriseon7: We’ll ask @justinbieber a few questions tomorrow. If you have one to ask, tweet it to us now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sunriseon7

Um, of COURSE Kings Cross violence is “concentrated”. It’s the highest population density area in the nation!

via Janetter for Mac

Oh hang on, this thing isn’t satire? These ARE the people who govern our state? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Kill me now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kloussikian: George Souris MP for Justin Hemmes [Oh this stuff writes itself, doesn’t!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kloussikian

RT @BernardKeane: George Souris has had to stop talking - his feed from Clubs NSW is down

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

Oh yes, George Souris, the police visiting venues at 6pm on a Tuesday will solve late-night weekend violence. I’m sure it will. Arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

Wait. Hang on. George Souris is not George Soros? Well that explains why the former is being a far bigger cunt that the latter seems to be.

via Janetter for Mac

@Pollytics Well, I suppose we all have our secret pleasures.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Pollytics

@Pollytics There is NOTHING “cool” about an Excel file, “interactive” or otherwise.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Pollytics

I’ve always thought they were the blokes who, as kids, were never ever cool enough to know where to buy The Good Drugs.

via Janetter for Mac

Where would community radio be without tedious old blokes going on and on about their trainspotter knowledge of boring noodly jazz?

via Janetter for Mac

@0x1C So did I ever respond to your suggested collision of lockpicking and beer? I’m not sure that I did.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 0x1C

I am pleased to announce that the “Patch Monday” podcast RSS feed is working again and new episode are available.

via Janetter for Mac

@pandymonium01 @ScottRhodie @joshgnosis Great title for a country and western song, that. “Jesus Wants a Vagina”.

via Plume for Android in reply to pandymonium01

So, as usual we’re meant to believe the opinion of some csshed-up foreigner over, you know, the evidence. NSW, you’re just a whore.

via Plume for Android

Oh yeah. I have to change hotels now.

via Plume for Android

Of course any NSW Premier who, as a man, can face his own reflection in the mirror, wouldn’t just make shit up. Right, @barryofarrell?

via Plume for Android

Fuck off George Souris you disingenuous opportunistic cunt.

via Plume for Android

Hang on. Where am I?

via Plume for Android

I love my editors. Also, I have not been drinking. Also, have you read Orwell?

via Plume for Android

RT @stilgherrian RT @SnarkyPlatypus 8 pages of legal advice. Sigh. [Plead not guilty.]

via Plume for Android

RT @BernardKeane: British MPs have a cyber-panic is.gd/UthB8n [At first I misread that as “cyber-picnic”.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Just ate some Oreos. How unsatisfying. [Also, traitor.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Because I’m now listening to Tom Jones singing “Delilah”, you should too. youtube.com/watch?v=8a_T3U…

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy @barryofarrell @CloverMoore I’m assuming you’re all at least smart enough to insert the missing letters and words into my last tweet.

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy Dunno. I suspect senior politicians don’t actually any recent direct experince of normal society. @barryofarrell @CloverMoore

via Janetter for Mac

Excellent. I’m now doing two radio spots tonight. That and cloning a hard drive so my MacBook Pro can go to be fixed tomorrow. MOAR BEER!

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, I love the “*** PRIME MINISTER *** MEDIA ALERT ***” emails I receive. It makes me feel so important for a change.

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy So @barryofarrell? Either stupid (hello, big pub / small bar dynamic!) or deliberately distorting facts to have a go at @CloverMoore.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Is it as bad as Joy Division’s “Love Will Tear Us Apart”? [Now THEM’S fighting words. Not for me, obviously, but…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

The Cure’s “Close To Me” is a blight upon the history of music. Discuss. youtube.com/watch?v=UsBe2W…

ABSCensus The Sutherland Shire weekly household income is $440 higher than the national median. We thought they could do with some good news

OH: “I tihnk Lauren’s shacking up with your ex.”

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently @carolduncan is going to assassinate Justin Bisber.

via Janetter for Mac

Just as an aside, doesn’t “QI” have the most pathetic and and fucked-up theme music in the history of television!

via Janetter for Mac

@fictillius While beer bottles have their benefits, I’ve found an establishment (small e) with tap beer, 240V and Cliff Richard. I win.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fictillius

expectproblems The true measure of an experienced D&D player versus a newbie is whether or not you fart during awkward moments between dice-rolls.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 3:13 PM, Jul 17th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

So what did they call Caesarian Sections before Caesar?

via Janetter for Mac

@ScottRhodie @joshgnosis QUICK HIDE ALL THE VAGINAS LET US NEVER SPEAK OF THEM AGAIN IT’S THE CHRISTIAN WAY JESUS DIDN’T HAVE A VAGINA.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ScottRhodie

@liammannix Hatred consumes too much energy. All Stephen Fry manages to inspire in me is endless low-level bitterness and disappointment.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to liammannix

@fictillius While I admire and appreciate your naive generosity, YOUR OFFICE DOES NOT HAVE BEER TAPS WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to fictillius

HURRY UP PROLES SEE THE THING STEPHEN FRY DID TWO YEARS AGO BECAUSE CULTURE AND SYDNEY FFS KILL YOURSELVES N instagr.am/p/NK0v7XiFv8/

via Instagram

I just walked past The Establishment. I did not firebomb it. There is no justice in the world.

via Plume for Android

I need a 240V power outlet so I can figure out what I’m meant to be doing.

via Plume for Android

Actually, we should thank GetUp! for showing “Q&A” the way forward, as a medical emergency reality show.

via Plume for Android

RT @SnarkyPlatypus What has Getup done now? [More importantly, what has GetUp! done ever? Except devalue the exclamation mark.]

@en_gy Oh shut the fuck up and pay the drug dealer the money you owe him.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: What’s so elite about veganism and riding bikes? [Have you never ridden a bike with a carrot?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So stopbigbrother.com.au is registered to Australian Taxpayers’ Alliance Pty Ltd, a bunch of fuckin’ frootloops. GIVE ‘EM YOUR EMAIL, SHEEP.

via Janetter for Mac

WHY ARE YOU ASKING ME WHAT SORT OF COFFEE I WANT I HAVE NOT HAD TOO MUCH TO DRINK DON’T JUDGE ME.

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis Add that to your personal profile. “Can cite George Orwell appropriately”. Could attract the right kind of… interest.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis The word you’re looking for is “doublethink”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

I’m not getting cranky at all.

via Janetter for Mac

So the first thing I’m ingesting after my morning coffee is a rather nice sauvignon blanc. This could end rather well.

via Janetter for Mac

Uhoh. Lunch isn’t 1200 for 1215, but 1145 for 1200. I am late. One seat left. A man it talking.

via Plume for Android

There’s a “NSW Hospitality Minister”? Coke and hookers for all!

via Plume for Android

@AdamFowler_IT I haven’t checked today, but the podcast feeds weren’t working yesterday afternoon. Still weekend US time though.

via Plume for Android in reply to AdamFowler_IT

So that’s everything in the entire universe organised in under 90 minutes. Time to check out, drop off my washing, and get to Circular Quay.

via Janetter for Mac

I want to make a big wooden sign reading “margin of error”, pulp it, reprocess it into a baseball bat, add nails, and shove it up your arse.

via Janetter for Mac

@barrysaunders Huh? You talk about “class” as if it’s a bad thing. Have you seen those people?

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you for your advice on time management using electronic devices, which has been filed appropriately.

via Janetter for Mac

@shivakum Just got your message. Alas I have missed the @CommBank thing. I’ll give you a buzz later to arrange getting the things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shivakum

Tue plan: Pack (fast); 1200 lunch briefing Circular Quay; change hotels; clone MacBook Pro’s hard drive; 1915 radio spot with @phildobbie.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, there’s voicemail. Oh. From just before 1000. It’s an editor, asking me if I’m on my way to the @CommBank event. Erm. Oh. Ah.

via Janetter for Mac

Rearranging all the things. With coffee. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m fairly sure I’m not going to be at @CommBank’s mysterious event at 0930. I wonder if there’s anything about that on Twitter? Oh. Fuck.

via Janetter for Mac

Why is the loud drilling? Loud can’t start until 1000! Check time on phone. Battery dead. Check time on computer. Oh. Open curtains. Shit.
