I think I’ve had enough of you for today.

via Janetter for Mac

Actually working on this thing after 7pm on a Sunday s bit silly, given how early I was working this morning. I shall do it tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

I am back at @bunjaree. I have poured myself a drink. I have started work on something that is long, long overdue.

via Janetter for Mac

@Hack_packer Yep, and people still don’t back up their data, still turn without indicating, still don’t wash their hands after a slash…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Hack_packer

@NewtonMark I did do it yesterday. And I did it again today, in the other direction. I’ll do it again in Wednesday too. Excitement plus.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@Hack_packer @thecrouchpotato Well there’s the thing. There’s no news in this. It’s a stock standard phishing attack, not even a new one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Hack_packer

@Hack_packer @thecrouchpotato I only dig into details of specific hacks when I need them for something I’m working on, or for a client.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Hack_packer

@Hack_packer @thecrouchpotato Oh don’t look to me for authoritative hack news! I don’t follow that news cycle closely. I’ll be days+ late.

So it would appear that @GreenJ has .phallen for the phishing …

via Plume for Android

Your deadline for writing a submission to  is tomorrow, Monday. Stop “hacking”, start writing.

via Plume for Android

All these recipes involving “shaved fennel”, don’t chefs ever wax?

@bleeters HOW VERY DARE YOU HAVE BETTER OPIATES THAN ME THERE IS NO JUSTICE.

via Plume for Android in reply to bleeters

Sure, but I’ve been drinking. How much did they pay you for this again? instagr.am/p/Of57xDiFrg/

Oh who knows? But there’s four of them. instagr.am/p/Of5tnMiFrV/

RT @SnarkyPlatypus Matchbox 20 - what even is it? [A studio apartment in Newtown, renting at $600 per week.]

via Plume for Android

RT @NickHodgeMSFT There are a lot of nerds here [That’s why they pay him the big bucks.]

via Plume for Android

Speaking of Edicts, can someone record me a quick 30-second voiceover some time before 2000 AEST today? Deep M or F authoritative voice.

via Plume for Android

@SnarkyPlatypus No, alas, because snow and hackers. But patience will be retarded sooner than you might think.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers I have a half-written Edict concerning “Insiders”, but I’d have to watch another episode to complete it. :(

via Plume for Android in reply to kcarruthers

@Colvinius I’ll definitely listen now, thanks Mark. It sounds like there’s plenty I’d find intertesting. Will re-plug when I’m done.

via Plume for Android in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius Sigh. This ethical perfection malarkey is bloody complicated!

via Plume for Android in reply to Colvinius

RT @alanzeino @stilgherrian fuck you’re a worthless, pitiful excuse for a no–surname human being [Compliment of the day, thank you. XXX]

via Plume for Android

RT @en_gy “Sydney Mardi Gras” is an anagram of “Dreary Gays Minds” Well, that’s that then.

via Plume for Android

Has Steps ever played Waves at Wollongong?

via Plume for Android

Ayn Rand is to normal human compassion as cocaine addiction is to pleasant family gatherings around a grandmother’s dinner table.

via Plume for Android

RT @mwyres @stilgherrian @joshgnosis That’s the best one since someone figured out “Stephen Conroy” was an anagram for “Hypo Net Censor”…

via Plume for Android

@Drag0nista I’m having a lovely day, thank you. Most of my work is done, and the oysters are satisfactory. And you?

via Plume for Android in reply to Drag0nista

RT @joshgnosis “Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan” is an anagram of “My ultimate Ayn Rand porn”

via Plume for Android

RT @R_Chirgwin Who was it that described the Canberra gallery as useless, dishonest, mendacious, solipsistic, drunken brain donors? [You?]

via Plume for Android

@puggle01 I’m fine, thank you. The wine list has finally arrived, finally.

via Plume for Android in reply to puggle01

@kcarruthers I’ve watched “Insiders” at times in the past, but not for ages. It seemed like an inefficient use of my time. Low S/N ratio.

via Plume for Android in reply to kcarruthers

RT @CBXn “Insiders” would be a good title for a high-school amateur gynecology club. [The difference being…?]

via Plume for Android

I’m fairly sure that’s how you get good service at an Italian restaurant.

via Plume for Android

WHERE THE FUCK IS THE WINE LIST YOU INCOMPETENT WHORE?

via Plume for Android

@jeamland Everything is a pretend thing hosted on a real thing. Echoes of Echo.

via Plume for Android in reply to jeamland

People who watch “Insiders” and imagine anyone gives a fuck.

via Janetter for Mac

People who thought that Groupon was a sustainable business model and a way forward for human society generally.

via Janetter for Mac

People who’ve been thinking about “international incidents” for a whole day and think they’ve grasped more subtleties than professionals.

via Janetter for Mac

Now all I have to do it wait for the bleeding to stop so I can clean up all this blood before checking out of the hotel. And then lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

One week from today I’ll be headed to San Francisco for Vmware’s VMworld. Yes, on their tab. stilgherrian.com/personal/visit…

via Janetter for Mac

Well that’s all the blog posts caught up with, and I’ve sorted out all my plans except the second half of my San Francisco accommodation.

Pro Tip: If you want someone to respond to your Twitter DMs, send them to that person and not to yourself.

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy Mental illness is a continuing, hidden tragedy in Australian society.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus While I appreciate the video of the black man fiddling with his underwear, that’s not at all what I was visualising. Mostly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

New blog post: “Talking NBN propaganda on @BallsRadio, FM 99.3”, 13 mins of audio from 14 Aug. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: @stilgherrian @ozdj I am sitting next to a BoM developers here at His response to this request is “No” [Prick.]

via Janetter for Mac

@ozdj Oh if only the BoM’s supercomputer could respond to “Fark it’s cold!” Ideally with a baseball bat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj Imagine how weather forecasts could be improved if there were 2 million real time weather stations in Australia!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Pump faking when wide open - I don’t even. [Sorry, what does this mean exactly? Please draw a diagram.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @markatextor: Gold. pic.twitter.com/4fIxb5H7 [Yep. Star Wars jokes I usually find to be lame. Points for this one.]

via Janetter for Mac

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mpesce: Uncle Mark is in a child-spoiling mood today. [So @VirginAustralia will move you to another seat.]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus I am afraid. At that very moment I also spilled my coffee, all over some scrap papers rather than anything important.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Sudden urge to use Gerry Anderson’s special machine. stilgherrian.com/internet/gerry…

via Janetter for Mac

People who can’t properly use @ versus # on Twitter should not have the right to vote.

via Janetter for Mac

Noting that @evacox is much more forthright and interesting in speech than in her writing. I find the latter repetitive, often dull.

via Janetter for Mac

So @markatextor is repeating the “I don’t have that excuse” and “no excuses” soundbites. Watch what pollies say in the week ahead.

via Janetter for Mac

Comfortable, secure, well-off Australians are feeling “disempowered” by a few score desperate people in a boat that’s about to sink?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @roger_wegener: Textor is spot on [About which bit? Without specifics you sound more like a fan club member.]

via Janetter for Mac

Lovely work there by @markatextor piling together a whole bunch of unrelated issues that piss people off to create a miasma of fear.

via Janetter for Mac

“Social license” is yet another way of linking “unlicensed” with “illegal” in people’s minds. Very clever, very nasty propaganda.

via Janetter for Mac

But either way, arguing over the words used is a bullshit distraction from the political, social issues and treatment of humans.

via Janetter for Mac

@andrew_hedge Erm no, it is illegal to ENTER Australia without approval. It is NOT illegal to arrive somehow and seek such entry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to egadheg

So @MarkTextor was delayed getting on air by ABC security? Run by G4S. They have no sense of urgency. Outsourcing fail. Say no more.

via Janetter for Mac

New blog post: “Talking bullying and Twitter laws on @BallsRadio”, 10 mins of audio from 8 Aug. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

To bring my blog up to date will require five new “stuff I’ve done” posts today. I’m finding the process rather reflective.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est scandaleux que vous souhaitez demander un âge entier pour vous-même. Cette arrogance!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Après avoir été ravagée par les Libanais, je suis bien remarquable. Je suis maintenant de réparer l’univers. Et tu?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@GreenJ Twitter for good? Last year strangers (mostly) gifted me $4000 to pay vet bills, even though the cat was finally put down.

via Janetter for Mac

Sun plan, unordered: Update blog (4+ posts); lunch (Parramatta) (probably); plan week ahead (QLD, SFO); return to Wentworth Falls (train).

via Janetter for Mac

@GreenJ Yes I know there’s The Communards and Jimmy Somerville solo works in there, but the punters probably won’t notice.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ But you make me feel so real. People like you have suspicious minds. OK, now I’ll stop.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ Well that’s that out of the way then. abcrn

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

Possibly @Gonski is not the same Gonski who wrote the review of Australia’s education system.

via Janetter for Mac

So has @GreenJ made the compulsory @Gonski Beat joke yet?

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Yes I know, BBC is going to the dogs. This week “tape recorder” archaisms, the other weekend they dissed me personally.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Royal Irish Regiment members given tape recorders to document experiences, capture thoughts. 1000 today, then podcast. abc.net.au/radionational/…
