@bigmac I’m not cool, but I might pop in.

@SnarkyPlatypus @jeamland There’s a joke on there somewhere about plugging iPhones but I think I might let it slide…

Still trying to work out how you “roll” a window.

So, yeah, even Hitler has found out about Apple’s iOS 6 Maps… youtube.com/watch?v=GkDz4w…

Well hasn’t @firstdogonmoon done rather well today.

“Interesting” factoid: Akamai has had to face DDoS attacks peaking at 150Gb/sec. But they serve 8 to 10Tb/sec, so it kinda just washes off.

via Janetter for Mac

@decryption No problems. I always tweet my media output, plus it’s always listed on my website. You cannot escape.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decryption

And… the interview is done. Data backups happen now, then off for my errands including lunch. Finally.

via Janetter for Mac

About to record an interview with Alex Caro of Akamai. For some reason it’s a phoner with a bazillion reps listening in.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Eject the duck! No, wait. [I did wait. It’s happening now. So’s the Loperamide.]

Andrew_Zammit The least interesting part of the debate is speculation over what Roxon’s own view may be. Personalising it misses the point.

@nephstar Plus logging etc is presumably about safely operating machinery and managing and working in teams. They’re valuable skills.

@NickBryantOz That Eartha Kitt anecdote is just great. Thanks for giving it fresh air. I’ll definitely re-pimpo the story this evening.

@garystark @bastardsheep Yeah you two should probably be ashamed of yourselves right now.

Are Tasmanians really so stupid as to think that if they can’t have a job shredding trees that nothing else exists?

@YogaReach Well, deals are “agreed” and contracts “signed”. Who the fuck EVER says they “ink” things? “Just ink the invoice here, Sir”? No.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to YogaReach

@SnarkyPlatypus @oberonsghost If they don’t understand what they’re selling, why do they still have a job?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

If I see one more story that says a deal was “inked” I’ll shove a fountain pen fair up the writer’s arse.

RT @rashasman: so you think that email might have been better if it was called “how to spoon with the cloud?” [Makes as much sense, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

It continually annoys me that marketing and PR people are paid good money to write stuff, yet rarely get beyond tired, meaningless cliché.

via Janetter for Mac

So “insights on how to embrace the cloud”? Yeah, deleting that email.

Direct link to “McAfee Threats Report: Second Quarter 2012” (PDF) mcafee.com/us/resources/r… THERE! I HAVE HACKED MCAFEE’S WEBSITE!

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHAHAHA! McAfee’s drop-down menu of countries seems to be missing a few. That’s really funny.

via Janetter for Mac

What’s even dafter, McAfee, is your assumption that EVERYONE is part of a “company” with a “job role”. Such a stupid worldview.

via Janetter for Mac

Y’know, McAfee, all these required fields just to download your PR material is a bit fuckin’ scummy. enterprise.mcafee.com/content/12Q2-A…

@en_gy It’s one of my constant fears and whinges. The sheer helplessness of kids, and I don’t think it’s just the “young people today” myth.

via Janetter for Mac

@onlineeds If Saturday is an early start, then yes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to onlineeds

@en_gy You’d be far from alone. Look up “Free Range Kids” and the many, many parents deciding that the cotton wool is wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

@onlineeds I’m unlikely to be anywhere near The Grand View today, since I’m 100km away from it.

Well that’s the Balls Radio recording done with @phildobbie. Now, back to trying to schedule this day rationally.

Oh. So I’ll record with @phildobbie for Balls Radio kinda NAO and then figure out the rest of the day after that.

@ataraxite Yes, “Canard d’Urgence” has so many delightful flavours of meaning, unlike “Emergency Duck”. And it’s given me an idea,..
