I suspect that some or your speculation is roughly 180° wrong.

“Prison Pandas 2”?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m never going to hear the term “gummy bear” in quite the same way ever again.

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder if pandas are allowed in prison. That could be kinda hot.

via Janetter for Mac

Please love me, Tony.

via Janetter for Mac

Reading the week’s political news, I’m kinda wishing I was a baby panda…

via Janetter for Mac

@jplonie I think I know where you’re going with that, and I think this conversation stops now. @en_gy

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@R_Chirgwin Just turn off the counter for “unread tweets”. It’s a daft stress-creator, like “unread books” or “unvisited countries”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@en_gy @jplonie The other day this guy told me prison was way hot. Nothing to do but go to the gym, take drugs and fuck other men all day.

SnarkyPlatypus The best way to deal with a Virgo when drinking is to throw up so they can occupy themselves with cleaning it up.

RT @Dextress: Tweeting from the Notifications bar in OS X Mountain Lion, lookin’ pretty sweet. [Sort of like drinking from the toilet?]

via Janetter for Mac

@jplonie @en_gy Oh I haven’t forgotten it. That was a rather tame savaging with the aid of facts. It’s not like I hacked his Grindr profile.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

Wondering whether I should have boat noodles for dinner, given that I’ve already had larb moo tod as a late lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

@maldamkar An ASIO primary check would only be revenge if they were actually a national security risk. You don’t know it’s happening.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maldamkar

@en_gy That’s sad. At least your lack of grammar skills go noticed. So that’s something.

via Janetter for Mac

@maldamkar It was part of my job. Most of the requests I sent anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maldamkar

Suddenly remembering. In my first proper full time job I had a pad of forms to request an ASIO primary security check on anyone at all. Fun.

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie I don’t go anywhere special. I just listen to the world instead of having a non-stop personal soundtrack to my life.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@en_gy I bet you don’t get people harassing you for not being able to pick the lock. :(

via Janetter for Mac

I love it when people who clearly have no fucking idea about operating system design try to play OS fanboy zealot wars with their “facts”.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “It’s an Asian language. It doesn’t really matter what order you put the words in.”

via Janetter for Mac

Sometimes there’s a right of reply. And sometimes there’s a right to just shut the fuck up.

via Janetter for Mac

Excellent. I’ve just managed to over-commit myself for the next couple of days. And that’s not counting the albino Peruvian hookers.

via Janetter for Mac

@CassPF I forgot to thank you earlier, but as it happens AFP was trying to arrange Neil Gaughan for me as well. They just confirmed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CassPF

RT @CNETAustralia: Want to know what goes on in Australia’s biggest game studio? cnet.co/MHSNkJ [Not really, but thanks for asking.]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh it’s just @expectproblems. I think he’ a Virgo or something.

via Janetter for Mac

If you have time to tweet a whole series of tweets about rules for drinking, you’re clearly not doing it right.

via Janetter for Mac

Story filed for @CSO_Australia. It’s about “the endless sorry parade of data breach apologist weasels”. You’re welcome.

via Janetter for Mac

Look, people, click through and read the fucking stories! Don’t expect the journalists to tweet you a personal point-by-point summary.

via Janetter for Mac

@mukimu I look forward to your mother, teachers, neighbours telling the TV crew “But he was always such a quiet boy…”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

@mukimu Hang on, why are they asking YOU when the bomb will explode? That’s the sort of thing I get asked. I mean. Um. Look at the flowers!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

Given the “quality” “thinking” behind Anonymous’ efforts in Australia, you can see why @BarrettBrownLOL lamented. zdnet.com/anonymous-crip…

via Janetter for Mac

@BaneAu Well, if you read @mukimu’s article I think you’ll find that it answers your question.

@RealNickHodge @mpesce I believe Thailand still has a major NSA-funded gaydar installation left over from the Vietnam War era. Up north.

@ozdj So @NAB has branches is Nauru now?

mixmif BCA fear: If we accept it is appropriate for government to decide something, what is the risk they may seek to decide something else?

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 2:46 PM, Jul 26th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I love how most of AAPT’s PRESS RELEASE is yet another it-don’t-matter spin. Yeah, we lost your data, but only a bit, nothing to see here.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @michaelneale: @stilgherrian stand back, you know regex [Oh this is true! I have regex and I now how to use it. I am not a geek.]

via Janetter for Mac

ISSUING A PRESS RELEASE IN ALL CAPS BECAUSE IT IS VERY SERIOUS SO SERIOUS IN FACT THAT I WILL FORCE REPORTERS TO FIX THE CAPITAL LETTERS.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear IBM, why on earth schedule your Security Symposium at 0800? We do have other day-start things to do before we settle into meetings.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ericscheid: Things were so much simpler when the industry counted “hits”.

Whatever they were.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland I have no idea what you’re talking about now. You’re weird.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@semiboganman Further proof that pentesters are not to be trusted, Sir! ;) @SnarkyPlatypus @gusworldau

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@SnarkyPlatypus @semiboganman Heh. It was fun when @gusworldau and I seemed to kick off the cynicism at that lunch. Nods around the table…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Imagining AIMIA presentation “People in flats N% more likely to download an app than use a mobile website compared with house dwellers.”

via Janetter for Mac

Exactly, @bjkraal. Survey asks about products providers can sell. Who apart from them classifies their world that way or even gives a shit?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bjkraal

RT @bjkraal: It’s stuck in the idea that you do sms OR email OR whatever. No. People “do work” or “tell their partner they’re on the bus”.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @gusworldau, for your “BYOD And The Illusion Of Control” lifehacker.com.au/2012/07/byod-a…

via Janetter for Mac

This indeed the AMPLI survey for AIMIA, @bjkraal. But “functionalist”? I’d use a different f-word to describe it…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bjkraal

Yes, AIMIA, a survey on smartphone use needs to know if I live in an attached house, a semi or a flat. Scope creep FTL. Survey abandoned.

via Janetter for Mac

Entire AIMIA survey structure is “Please explain how you use your smartphone in terms of these legacy product and service category silos”.

via Janetter for Mac

Silly AIMIA survey on smartphones differentiates between “getting information” and “visiting websites” and “entertainment”. Venn diagram?

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Too many open browser tabs, open emails, notes on paper scraps. The next 90 mins sees them all closed off, dealt with or scheduled.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar Draw Something has dropped from 14.9 million daily active users to 3.4m. Best $200,000,000 ever. [I see no bubble here.]

via Plume for Android

@TheDanAnimal @helveticade @purserj @semiboganman And we talk about TV stations “filming” a news story. So?

via Plume for Android in reply to TheDanAnimal

@purserj @helveticade @semiboganman @TheDanAnimal Is there reluctance to call internet streams “radio” or “station”? They exist.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

RT @Serrels: @stilgherrian @Tuna Oh man. You are dead to me. Avocado is my *life*. [Yeah Rub it on your body while watching TV then? Sicko.]

via Janetter for Mac

How can you even put that thing in your mouth?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ScaredyCat44: I have my own avocado tree and everything! [Just having that thing growing near you has poisoned your mind.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Tuna: *cough* avocado is not a vegetable its tasteless soap… disgusting rubbish… [THIS IS EXACTLY RIGHT, PEOPLE!]

via Janetter for Mac

You’re all fuckin’ captive to the avocado lobby. You have no idea.

via Janetter for Mac

AVOCADO ARE NASTY EVIL GREASY TASTELESS ALIEN FUCKING SLIMEFRUIT AND SHOULD NOT BE ALLOWED ANYWHERE NEAR FOOD.

via Janetter for Mac

@purserj @semiboganman But ANYONE can start streaming NOW. No license No tower / transmitter. Seem captive to radio licensing thought.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@barrysaunders How dare you even suggest that I would troll, Mr Saunders!

via Janetter for Mac

@semiboganman @purserj Figures I had at ABC some years back was 1/3 of daytime radio audience in moving vehicles, less breakfast and nights.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

Thu plan, unordered: Write for @CSO_Australia; also @technologyspec; document client database; plan next week; catch up on reading; sloth.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @purserj: still pondering why no one’s setup a “community radio station” wholly online yet [No recipe to just copy, both org and tech.]

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost I read it as “I’m just too stupid and lazy to even imagine how I could find the email you sent me the last three times.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@dannolan My Portuguese friends tell me that Oporto is about as Iberian as a yak. @bernietb @alanzeino

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

@dannolan The only problem I have with any of that is that Oporto is inexcusably shit and you should be embarrassed. @bernietb @alanzeino

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

I love emails from clients saying “I can’t remember…” Yep. That’s why we invented writing, paper, computers to do the remembering for you.

via Janetter for Mac

I think the opening words will be “Dan Nolan symbolises everything that’s wrong with western society…” @bernietb @dannolan @alanzeino

via Janetter for Mac

@bernietb It’s fine, @dannolan @alanzeino are now the inspirations for a 5-minute segment in a certain podcast that’ll re-appear soon. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bernietb

@dannolan @alanzeino It’s new so you must have it now? And that’s it? That’s the entire summation of your impulse control? I weep for you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

@dannolan @alanzeino Well lovely, it worked for you. But where’s the urgency come from? What’s the fuckin’ rush, in the vernacular?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

@dannolan @alanzeino So explain to me again the need to rebuild your work tools in the first day or even month of a new OS.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

Well, having finished most of the rearranging I think I’m almost ready to commit it to a Plan for the day. Almost.

via Janetter for Mac

Rearranging my day a little after having received certain messages.

via Janetter for Mac

It may be Thursday, but I’m frustrated by the narrowness of the columns.
