I would like to express my disappointment with the initial impressions given by this week’s set of supplied sleep patterns.

RT: “Patch Monday” podcast: “Partitioning porn from PowerPoint: VMware’s virtualisation vision” zdnet.com/partitioning-p…

@ApostrophePong Try this, by Charles Waterstreet, who co-created Rake and indeed inspired it. smh.com.au/opinion/societ…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Ah well do enjoy. I thought they did a slight cop-out at the end of S01, but the start of S02 more than makes up for it.

@ozdj Where have you been? The domain t.co didn’t work for SEVERAL WHOLE MINUTES! People were JUDGING TWITTER.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj It’s like the carry-on earlier about that Twitter glitch. Why are you arsehats “troubleshooting” (read: guessing) what you can’t fix?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

@ozdj Who the fuck knows or even cares about the specifics? It’s broken, it gets fixed or replaced as a unit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

Oh good. My backup drive just failed. Toshiba 1TB USB 3.0 just a few weeks old, tho it always did seem to fall off the bus a bit too often.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, it’s “Black Mirror” episode 1, “The National Anthem”. Such a glorious thing!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Yes, people, you really must watch @charltonbrooker’s “Black Mirror” at 2130 tonight on SBSONE. You must.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar: I have seen some stupid, stupid shit today. [Did it have feathers? Please tell me it had feathers.]

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong Oh good! Which episode(s) have you managed to watch so far? We’ve had “Rake” S02E05 broadcast on Thursday.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

Being well-behaved.

via Janetter for Mac

Having reviewed last week’s footage, I think I might insist that all my TV spots are done as live crosses to a cocktail bar.

via Janetter for Mac

The reading is Allison Cerra’s “Identity Shift” on identity, technology and trust, ‘cos I’m interviewing her on Wed. theshiftonline.com

Tue plan, draft: 0837 train to Sydney, reading en route; 1100 unallocated; 1200 NetSuite media lunch; more reading; evening TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

By “free” time, I mean time that should be spent catching up on research for things I’m committed to the following day.

via Janetter for Mac

Planning tomorrow’s journey to Sydney. Allowing 5 minutes leeway is ambitious, I think. So I may have a little “free” time at 1100.

Steve Ballmer joined Microsoft on 11 June 1980”, @juhasaarinen @rashasman, so it was all just chicken heads then. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Steve_Bal…

Microsoft staff photo, 7 December 1978. These people are to blame, and you can see why. retronaut.co/2012/10/micros…

AniOBrien@biebersdaley: How does gaga have 30 million followers if there’s only 7 million people in the world???”

You have got to be shitting me.

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Partitioning porn from PowerPoint: VMware’s virtualisation vision” zdnet.com/partitioning-p…

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Now I need a scalpel…

via Janetter for Mac

I think it’s important to take whatever personal gripes you have today and attach them randomly to one of my unrelated tweets.

via Janetter for Mac

“Tonight on ‘I’m an Instant Fucking Expert’, the domain name system.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @michaelneale: Only one anus. Single point of failure.

via Janetter for Mac

Another of those great myths: that “business” is somehow more special than people. See also “business grade” versus “consumer grade”.

via Janetter for Mac

@AdamFowler_IT I don’t see why it makes any difference, but I used the word “people”. Businesses are just collections of people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdamFowler_IT

And how is t.co more of a “single point of failure” than twitter.com itself? Think it through, arsehats!

via Janetter for Mac

So, when people gloat about “single point of failure”, how many different, independent domains do they run on themselves? Hypocrites.

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed! Whew! And I managed to mention porn in the title. It’s a gift.

via Janetter for Mac

Well some of us are busy.

via Janetter for Mac

Still editing the “Patch Monday” podcast, but there is progress. It shall be finished in time. Shut up.

via Janetter for Mac

NewtonMark Bullied. RT @ozdj: You can’t make this stuff up. “One Direction star on crutches after being beaten up by a squirrel” arseh.at/2y0b

Note to self: Assume every recording will end up having to be edited for a podcast, unlike this dog’s breakfast I’m currently working on.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I want to cry now.

via Janetter for Mac

Then we’ll dig out everything you’ve ever said that we can portray in a negative light, and every embarrassing photo, a laugh and laugh.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose, though, you’re showing us how we should all treat YOU if you ever, anywhere, say something that’s not 100% sphincter-perfect.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, another tweet you didn’t like. Hit them and hit them and hit them and hit them and hit them and hit them oh FFS grow the fuck up.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Settling into audio editing. It’s a thing I planned to do at some stage, so it might as well be today. I may be some time.

via Janetter for Mac

“Wonder Computer of the 1980s”, as spruiked by Mr William Shatner. retronaut.co/2012/10/captai…

via Janetter for Mac

“Today on ‘I’m an Instant Fucking Expert’, the rights and complexities of Free Speech.” Muppets.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @sylmobile Well, I consider myself lucky that I saw a waratah in flower at the roadside! I wonder if it’ll still be there today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Shoes, that was. High-heeled shoes. Alan Jones, shoes and CCTV. Oh wait. Look, can we start again?

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder if there’s some way of combining Alan Jones, shows and CCTV into the one “Patch Monday” podcast.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast, of some description. This’ll be interesting.

via Janetter for Mac

Blog post: “Weekly Wrap 122: Fatigue and a helpful waratah stilgherrian.com/weekly-wrap/12…

via Janetter for Mac

You’re forcing me into tweeting this link to a Mike Carton yarn, aren’t you. “Prissy shrieks of fear and loathing” smh.com.au/opinion/societ…

via Janetter for Mac

If you expect me to cope with the world you are presenting me with today, then I demand more and more powerful drugs. Immediately.

@SnarkyPlatypus Pourquoi? Certes, même dans le climat actuel, il sera assez pour vous?

“The woman, from Miranda, was granted conditional bail to appear in Sutherland Local Court.” They’d have a macro for that, I guess.

via Janetter for Mac

It must be strange living in a world where the only things that happen are the things in the news headlines and on the comment sites.

via Janetter for Mac

Forget that annoying turd on the radio, THIS crime must be reported fully. For society’s sake. police.nsw.gov.au/news/media_rel…
