@bernietb I haven’t had a single beer all day.

@riskybusiness SeaSides Australia is pretty much compulsory you realise.

Realising my tactical errors.

@R_Chirgwin There’s a joke in there about flake, but I can’t be arsed.

via Plume for Android in reply to R_Chirgwin

OH, man on phone: “Yeah, I’m in the pub with Stilgherrian.” LIKE THAT EXPLAINS IT YOU BASTARD.

Also, yeah, waylaid.

Me at @CSO_Australia: “High praise for Oz DSD’s ‘Catch, Patch, Match’” cso.com.au/article/440206…

Great. I find out just now that today’s the 100th birthday of the Lithgow Small Arms Factory, now Thales. IF I’D KNOWN I’D HAVE GONE, TWATS.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I’m writing again now. Further interactions in due course.

JoyceCarolOates Rumor that “Donald Trump” is not an actual person but an original creation of R. Crumb.

Drinking Old Mout Boysencider, which is both very red and very boysenberry. It is on tap today. oldmoutcider.com

Get in the van, Nostradumbarses. Off to Camp Wrongness for you.

Is @marcfennell even conscious and sober at this time of the week?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh dear @marcfennell! No more appeals in Movies vs iiNet. It went to the High Court, game over. For that case.

Listening to @marcfennell’s latest @DownloadABC, with not too many jokes about the perfection of 7.9 inches. abc.net.au/radionational/…

@NickHodgeMSFT @wolfcat This seems to be a terrible oversight. Windows 8 is clearly doomed. Also, can be used to navigate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@NickHodgeMSFT Is there an Apple Maps app for Windows 8? Just asking questions…

Significant arsehat levels today.

Mobile: Walk dirt track then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; 1300 train to Katoomba; 1315 lunch The Old City Bank Brasserie, I think, maybe.

via Janetter for Mac

@eldonnn Well the blog posts are long since done, and the washing too. We’re well into the day’s plans now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to eldonnn

Fri plan, updated: To Katoomba for lunch; write for @CSO_Australia; shopping; TGIF, though probably an early night unless waylaid.

via Janetter for Mac

@riskybusiness No worries. I’m into another “filter out the BS” phase, so it all strikes a chord for me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness Well, for what it’s worth I reckon you’re onto a sensible idea there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness [nods] I can see value in something that’s not vendor- or government-sponsored. Do it as Chatham House Rule? Could win.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness I guess I’m asking what your unique selling proposition would be. Not that I’d be in the target market, I’m guessing. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@RealNickHodge You’re advocating universal caesarian sections?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@riskybusiness The target audience for the forum would be…? How would you want to pitch it?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to riskybusiness

@jason_a_w Thanks very much, Jason. Doing an extended editorial was a bit of a change for “Patch Monday”. Pleased with the feedback.

politicalmath I hate hipsters. Their smug faces, vegan diet, tiny feet & sawdust bedding. No wait. Hamsters. I hate hamsters.

@GreenJ What would happen if someone sent Pussy Riot to Nauru?

RT @dobes: Let’s not pretend anything useful actually comes out of these “regional launches” anymore. [Oh so true. WE HAVE STEAMSHIPS NOW!]

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland You’re hallucinating and/or living in the past.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@AdamFowler_IT Oh good, thanks. Except @SenatorLudlam isn’t “government”. The Greens need, oh, just a couple more seats for that to happen.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdamFowler_IT

@AdamFowler_IT @ssharwood Indeed, plus I praise Microsoft at length for other things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdamFowler_IT

@AdamFowler_IT @ssharwood Big difference between “anti-Microsoft” and discussing and concluding that they got something “sub-optimal”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdamFowler_IT

@AdamFowler_IT @ssharwood Oh I know it’s not a go at me, but I don’t think it was a particularly anti-Microsoft conversation either.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdamFowler_IT

Living the launch vicariously through @ssharwood because I have been cast into the outer darkness.

@trib It’s weird. AFP and AGD folks seemed genuinely to believe that one-page document defining metadata was clear. It’s worrying.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to trib

@Andrew_Zammit Indeed. I’ve conversations with FBI, NSA and US Secret Service officers with full names on their cards. Different world.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

@caseyjohnellis Thank you. But did I get the logic of that preamble right? “Which is a good thing” on the blog, I mean, not the podcast.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

I am chastened by the fact that the most common search terms bringing people to my website continue to be “steve irwin jokes”.

However, MSFT, I do grant you that there could be all manner of undiscovered things in my email.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on. A Windows 8 launch today, which I know nothing of, and a Windows Phone 8 launch Tuesday, which I do? Left hand, right hand, MSFT!

TumblrTXT Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

@SnarkyPlatypus Duke University AND a truck-killing bridge! DURHAM HAS EVERYTHING!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fri plan; 2 blog posts; washing; write for @CSO_Australia; plan “Patch Monday” podcast(s); something involving a pig; maybe even martinis.

via Janetter for Mac

The life of that Durham (North Carolina?) bridge is further documented at 11foot8.com, which is rather sweet,.

Hello, Friday. Pig of a day. I have a sore throat. I will have to arrange a pig for later. I am not a crook.
