@Venisejb Thank you. I don’t understand how the other thing is even possible, but that’s a question for whoever set things up.

You can imagine how pleased I am that the Sydney Monorail breakdown is lead story on the @abcnews website tonight.

Emergency duck deploy!

@dananimal @RealNickHodge @SnarkyPlatypus You are confusing all the ducks. It is unhelpful. And unhealthy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dananimal

@QuixoticGuy So terrorism, communism or liberal media. Them’s the choices. A grim future lies ahead, whichever path we choose. Outstanding.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to QuixoticGuy

It’s not quite an emergency, but I still might pop down the road and deploy the emergency duck. It will please me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

@QuixoticGuy Hardly. No, it’s just sheer unadulterated bullshit. A random cavalcade of catchphrases and name-dropping. Watch the videos.

That is a good rule.

@GTRoberts Agreed, an interesting conversation. I’m also trying to make them more timeless, bouncing off news perhaps but of lasting value.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GTRoberts

@GTRoberts Heh. Thanks. I know what you mean. I’ve been trying to broaden the topics and it does seem to be working.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GTRoberts

@GTRoberts While I liked “flustered duck”, in audio “custard duck” worked better as a not-quite-expletive.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GTRoberts

RT @PointZeroOne: Apple Custard Duck? Sounds delicious. [Yes, and most delicious indeed for Google Maps and Microsoft Bing Maps.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. It’s all about the custard duck that is Apple Maps. And it’ll be on your internets this afternoon.

via Janetter for Mac

@junyer @GeordieGuy The point I’m making is that copyright infringement isn’t “theft” and is being increasingly criminalised. Agreed?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to junyer

@junyer That post by @GeordieGuy sets out a restricted meaning of “illegal”at odds with the point I was making. geordieguy.com/2012/02/the-le…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to junyer

@junyer @GeordieGuy You’re suggesting that infringing copyright law is not illegal? Really? I chose my words carefully there. Try again.

via Janetter for Mac

Possibly “flustered duck” works even better than “custard duck”.

via Janetter for Mac

I can’t use strong language on “Patch Monday”, so I’m thinking I might describe Apple’s iOS 6 Map as a “custard duck”.

Oh. Well that was easy. This week’s “Patch Monday” podcast will be a reality check on Apple’s iOS 6 Maps. I could’t resist.
