@feesable I had a thing on, alas, so blame @marcfennel for moving the time. Anyway, you got to talk with @joshgnosis and he’s kinda OK.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feesable

@BundyB @DownloadABC Well @marcfennell told me some yarn about studio booking times being changed into when I wasn’t available but yeah.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

Klout founder Joe Fernandez must bathe in the Kool-Aid daily, and supplement it with weekly enemas. What a load of buzzword-laden shite.

Damn! I wish I hadn’t been bumped from @DownloadABC this week. Trolls and anonymity AND Klout! I’D HAVE GONE POSTAL! abc.net.au/radionational/…

@miss_shiny You can’t have a Belgian police dog in a museum about Australian police!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to miss_shiny

I’m so happy I’ve got my computer back I’ll have to change the sheets.

via Janetter for Mac

@miss_shiny It is taxidermied, yes. The museum also has a studded dead police dog of some (previous) fame. It’s a bit… weird and sick.

@oberonsghost Thanks for the loan of your MacBook. I’ll give it a clean-up and return it to you when the tides are right.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite I don’t see how my tweets could be improved. They’re already the pinnacle of discourse as they are now.

via Janetter for Mac

My God, this screen is so bright! The metal case so smooth and shiny!

via Janetter for Mac

Good evening. I am now tweeting to you live from my newly-restored MacBook Pro. A mere two months after the most expensive beer ever. Ahem.

via Janetter for Mac

Jesus, this last screw is tight.

via Plume for Android

The leg is still painful, @stufromoz, thanks for asking, but I daresay it’ll be better after a rest. I’ve had to move around a lot today.

via Plume for Android in reply to stufromoz

Fri plan, evening edition: Pub plan abandoned; stay warm; eat soup; reinstate MacBook Pro to operational status; early night, if possible.

Here’s the book, free download: “Underground: Hacking, madness and obsession on the electronic frontier” gutenberg.org/ebooks/4686

via Janetter for Mac

Having read “Underground”, I think that to consider it a Julian Assange biography is… perverse.

via Janetter for Mac

Film adaptation of “Underground”, billed as a Julian Assange bio, premieres in Toronto this weekend. theregister.co.uk/2012/09/06/ass…

Misread that for a moment.

I have never worried a wombat, @juhasaarinen, though I have kicked one. Her name was Sue and she was grumpy and being a PITA.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen Er, no, I’m talking about chefs. A new word for you. But there IS life beyond pickled reindeer hooves and vodka.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

BTW, I do realise that everybody is “ethnic”, but I know what it looks like from the ‘burbs.

via Janetter for Mac

Pro Tip: If you want your own program on Australian TV this decade, don’t study acting or journalism. Become a chef. Preferably ethnic.

@PacketNetworks It is with great disappointment that I must report a complete lack of missiles.

@gikku Thanks for the suggestion, but I’ve eaten at the Canton Palace in Wentworth Falls twice, and both times were underwhelming.

I see there’s a fair amount of sympathy for the 3yo twins. I’m inclined to agree.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland Yeah I let that one through to the keeper. If you want to goto then devil take the hindmost, I say.

Ah! The 3yo is/are twins. SEKRIT TWIN LANGUAGE MIND GAMES. Also, the mother is maybe 7 years older than her twins.

via Plume for Android

OH: “Next time you go to the toilet when I tell you.” I know, those infants and their MIND GAMES.

via Plume for Android

OH, mother to 3yo: “Why didn’t you say you wanted to go to the toilet when I asked you? Don’t you play your mind games with me!”

@SnarkyPlatypus They should do a drama about Singapore in 2010. Accountant goes to shopping mall. Student does homework. That sort of thing.

@katedoak @domknight Thank you. The screechy tinfoil-hattery tends to marginalise what’s actually a very important discussion.

@charliedrummond No need to apologise. But I’m pleased to be able to say that it’ll almost always be my typing at fault, not my spelling.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to charliedrummond

I’ve thought of doing this sort of thing, but someone has actually done it. now-here-this.timeout.com/2012/09/05/tub… HT @garthk

via Janetter for Mac

@charliedrummond My typing goes to shit when I’m tired. And I’m very tired right now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to charliedrummond

I see all the venderspam emails for Microsoft Tech.Ed starting to flood in. Yes, folks, I’ll be on the Gold Coast from Tuesday afternoon.

via Janetter for Mac

@lewellyn @SnarkyPlatypus That’s quite right, because Australia’s Communist health care system doesn’t count. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

@SnarkyPlatypus @lewellyn Look, I wish to point out that no-one was actually hospitalised. Well, um, you know what I mean.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Final medical tweet: Hospital staff said that checking out potential DVT is A Good Thing. It probably won’t be, but can be nasty if it is.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @lewellyn: @stilgherrian Now they’ll never let us drink in the same bar at the same time ever again. :( [Could be a wise strategy? ;)]

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, updated: Breakfast (finally!); blog post; write for @CSO_Australia; return to Wentworth Falls; plan next week en route; TGIF.

via Janetter for Mac

@lewellyn The medical opinion is that you’re to blame. Also long drinking sessions and forgotten stumbles. Ouch. @SnarkyPlatypus

via Plume for Android in reply to lewellyn

In other medical news, I’m about to collect my finally-repaired MacBook Pro from Apple Store Broadway. Further plans announced before lunch.

via Plume for Android

Thank you to the always-excellent Royal Prince Alfred Hospital staff. Thanks for all your good wishes too.

via Plume for Android

Was also told the DVT threat is mostly the result of airline lawyers avoiding blame.

via Plume for Android

All good. Delayed onset muscle soreness, that is muscle damage from a few days ago. Pain will subside. It will heal.

via Plume for Android

There is no blood clot to be seen. Theories have been floated, agreed with. Awaiting formal diagnosis and sign-off by treating doctor.

via Plume for Android

Oh. Still have to wait for the blood test. Maybe 30 minutes.

via Plume for Android

Wiping all the KY off my inner thighs.

I’ve been wheeled to the Vascular Lab in another part of the building. The porter was whinging about hospitals’ interpersonal politics.

via Plume for Android

Fri plan, interim: Ultrasound to confirm diagnosis; write something; return to Wentworth Falls; plan next week en route; TGIF.

via Plume for Android

Doctor reckons it’s a strained muscle (tho I can’t recall doing so), but she’s ordering an ultrasound scan to double check.

via Plume for Android

I’ve been moved to “our painful limb area, that’s the easiest way to explain it,” with one other walking guy.

There’s a surprising number of people who wander in here not understanding that the emergency entrance is not right for their not-emergency.

Hmmm… So that’s now the third pregnant bogan chick in pain and tears who’s come through. Mothers, is that how it goes?

And now, an episode of “Rescue: Special Operations”. This is a rare privilege.

via Plume for Android

The missile hits its target. Explode all the things. The general smiles. The woman is hugged. Roll credits.

Currently some sort of mutant giant is turning Stonehenge into a blue sparky power-projecting thing. A jet fighter has launched a missile.

@juhasaarinen “The trombone, doctor? I was, um, having a shower and slipped and fell on it.”

via Plume for Android in reply to juhasaarinen

The TV is showing the “Mockbuster Marathon”, which seems to endless really bad disaster etc movies. Crappy SFX FTW!

via Plume for Android

@JohnDobbin @cheshireb @ljLoch Thanks. Comments from triage are promising.

via Plume for Android in reply to JohnDobbin

Vital signs all good. My physical health has generally been good. “For a man if my age,” yes shut up I know what you’re like.

via Plume for Android

Triage nurse reckons it’s a maybe, maybe not for a small blood clot. So I await a doctor and then, probably, a scan.

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Downstairs to the foyer; taxi to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital’s A&E Dept; significant period of boredom. I’ll be tweeting.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @miss_shiny Thank you, RPA-near friends. I’ll see how I go.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Thanks, folks, no more urging is required. Please stop. As soon as I finish this coffee I’m getting a cab to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital.

via Janetter for Mac

@_laverne Yep, all is in order. I’m preparing myself for just that. Thanks for the urging. No more needed. @19bk69 @stufromoz @miss_shiny

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RamonaMargo

@_laverne The flight was 48 hours ago. But there’s no sensible explanation for, say, muscle strain.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RamonaMargo

@notrez @stufromoz You certainly know how to kill the party vibe, guys. ;) Fear not, while I seemed to prevaricate, my plan was clear to me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to notrez

@stufromoz Thanks heaps. Again, this was what I was thinking. Coffee, shower, and then the RPA. I can do my urgent comms from there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stufromoz

@stufromoz That’s what I was thinking. Tenderness in calf muscle, possible swelling, recent long-haul flight, started during sleep. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stufromoz

@JanetFulton If my recording worked I’ll post it on my website later today. I’ll tweet you the link. @1233newcastle @domknight

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JanetFulton

I’m guessing I need to be getting some ultrasound done, but what I don’t know is how urgently I should be scheduling it. Nurse?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh excellent. The symptoms of this pain, to my pre-caffeinated brain, are consistent with DVT. And with a million other things.

via Janetter for Mac

So this is Friday, and I have a strange pain in the calf muscle of my left leg. They are the two key facts framing my world right now.
