@chrisjrn @jdub @Asher_Wolf I think it’s a bit more complicated than that.

I assume that if I whinge loudly enough that Python-iView will magically become an OS X package file by the weekend? ;)

via Janetter for Mac

Anyway, here’s Python-iView on GitHub, and the Streisand Effect can do the rest. github.com/akent/python-i…

via Janetter for Mac

iView app’s small buffer is a bug, @abcmarkscott, that stops it working on slow links. So Python-iView is a systems patch to fix that bug.

via Janetter for Mac

It’d be in SPAA’s interest for programs the ABC has already paid for to receive a wider audience, encouraging DVD sales and syndication.

via Janetter for Mac

R_Chirgwin @stilgherrian Great heavens. The Whirlpool page for the iView downloader I used has also been removed (presumably by demand). Dumb…

via YoruFukurou (retweeted on 9:12 PM, Sep 18th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I never could work out the acronym for SPAA. Shouldn’t there be a “C” in there somewhere?

via Janetter for Mac

I do hope that everyone responding to my tweets there READS THE LINKED BLOG POST FIRST LEST THEY LOOK LIKE AN ARSEHAT.

via Janetter for Mac

I can’t use iView NOW, @abcmarkscott, in Sydney CBD, because hotel bandwidth lacks. Python-iView would solve it AT NO COST TO THE ABC.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, @abcmarkscott, the takedown notice against Python-iView is wrong-headed. Please make it stop. mibus.org/2012/09/18/let…

RT @NewtonMark: I don’t think I’d get upset at ibises stealing babies from the park. It’d be just like The Stork, only backwards. Symmetry.

@lexiphanic @GeordieGuy @pressdarling Also who is not-present. Planning a weekend BBQ can wait. Evolving work drama needs some focus.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lexiphanic

@pressdarling @lexiphanic I’ve misread the intent of your language, oops.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pressdarling

@pressdarling @lexiphanic Why not let it evolve naturally? Why do you want, as your language seems to imply, to manipulate a change?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pressdarling

@lexiphanic @GeordieGuy @pressdarling But if I’m having a casual lunch with a mate, I won’t worry if they do a few other things too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lexiphanic

@lexiphanic @GeordieGuy @pressdarling If I’ve taken time for an “important” meeting, I’ll be angry if the other party doesn’t pay attention.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lexiphanic

@lexiphanic @GeordieGuy @pressdarling Why single out this one factor, presence? Surely social context, power/status issues etc dominate?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lexiphanic

@pressdarling @lexiphanic No, it’s not a simple yes/no answer. Never was.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pressdarling

@lexiphanic @pressdarling Dunno. Your life. Run it how you want. Though I note we interrupt dinner at home to answer landline phones.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lexiphanic

@pressdarling @lexiphanic That is to say, frowns, stiff posture, punch in the face etc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pressdarling

@pressdarling @lexiphanic You guys are asking, essentially, “What are the social cues that I’ve done wrong?” So, same as everything else.

If these are “alarming” links, @abc730, how come NONE of the police interviewed seem alarmed, or said they were alarmed? Were YOU alarmed?
