November 1st, 2012

RT @einspruch: And if they do it more than once? [SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP SHUT UP.]

via Janetter for Mac

The people who tweeted the following words shall die. Twinventing. Twats (though that’s clever). Twivilised. Twankers. Twyhards.

via Janetter for Mac

RT: Me at @crikey_news: “Google defames us all, but should we sue?” crikey.com.au/2012/11/01/sti… [Paywall’d, free trial.]

via Janetter for Mac

People who “invent” “new” things by putting a “tw” on the front because Twitter is involved, somehow.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor Why are you singling out economics?

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin You’re only praising me ‘cos I was wearing the same t-shirt as your wife and… no, I’ll stop there. @nanopunk

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

“I’ve long since learned never to try to teach French to Americans.” clientsfromhell.net/post/347356196…

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah self-plugging is probably the most efficient way.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah so I’m back at @bunjaree and whatever I promised you will happen some time between now and Christmas. 2015.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I am going shopping now. In a supermarket. So as you know this will deliver me into a calm and rational state.

via Janetter for Mac

“Here’s Josh at the track.” HI JOSH YOU MEDIA GOD YOU.

via Janetter for Mac

Um, you didn’t see the word “another” in that previous tweet, OK? Thank you, Friends. Friends. Hugs. Kisses. Can I buy you a drink?

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck I hope none of these guys top themselves tonight. I am so not in the mood for making another statement to local detectives.

via Janetter for Mac

At least it’s not Sky Racing 2, right? So there’s no need to kill your children, wife and yourself until NEXT week.

via Janetter for Mac

Just imagine that you wanted to make your career in the media and at age 45 your role is afternoon presenter on Sky Racing 1.

via Janetter for Mac

@en_gy HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Kill them.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @lvlld: Today we are all fake rabbits.

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHA THE DOGS CAUGHT UP WITH THE FAKE RABBIT AND SAVAGED IT STEWARDS ARE SORTING IT OUT HOLD YOUR BETS.

via Janetter for Mac

Sure, you get a far better perspective on Australian politics by spending the afternoon in a pub getting drunk and watching the dog racing.

via Janetter for Mac

Indeed, @fivewalls, Wikipedia says Westfield has 4000 employees worldwide. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Westfield… Now add in all the retailers in their malls.

via Janetter for Mac

Just to make it clear, I’m not really Marie Antoinette.

“Please select your bet value, or press ‘end’ for a badger.’”

via Janetter for Mac

voirol There is no such thing as “based around”, let alone “focused around”. Quit equivocating by choosing a fuzzy, but wrong, preposition. /rant

via Twitter for iPad (retweeted on 5:18 PM, Nov 1st, 2012 via Twitter Web Client)

SHUT UP THEY HAVE MORE THAN 350 FOLLOWERS.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah this is definitely turning me into an alcoholic. MOAR WINE. This will end well.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Thank you. Please collect your tickets and badger.”

via Janetter for Mac

Seriously, the bio for @WestfieldLabs is a hoax, right? I mean, click through and read it for yourself and translate it into English.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bryceroney: @stilgherrian You don’t want to read the account’s bio then. [Oh. You’re right. I fell 85% more stupid already.]

via Janetter for Mac

This tweet contains so many things that confuse me. twitter.com/WestfieldLabs/… “Westfield Labs”? “Property Hall of Fame”? WTF?

via Janetter for Mac

EAT CAKE, MOTHERFUCKERS!

via Janetter for Mac

YOUR NARCISSISM SHALL NOT PROTECT YOU, @jonoabroad @michaelneale!

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale @jonoabroad NO I WANT TO RAZE HIS HOME TO THE GROUND AND RENDER HIS ENTIRE FAMILY BACK FOUR GENERATIONS TO VAPOUR.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

There are three times more people in Australia with a single name than arrive, supposedly illegally, by boat each year. abc.net.au/unleashed/2943…

via Janetter for Mac

At least Ubank didn’t email my password in plaintext YES HELLO TELSTRA BIGPOND I’M LOOKING AT YOU.

via Janetter for Mac

Whoever asked before, yes, @UBank has a Twitter account. That’s neither here nor there. Their web forms betray them.

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad Yeah but I’m gonna focus the laser on your house anyway. Fuck it, it sounds like fun.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@joshrowe I will admit I was surprised by the number myself. I thought “a couple hundred”. Alas, I can’t really data mine Medicare further.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshrowe

RT @Pollytics: Wow - the Tea Party News Network tpnn.com It’s like overdosing on PCP [And so much cheaper!]

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad @purserj Yeah well I DO have a Twitter account and you guys are now so fucked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad Also, one of the basic privacy principles is that you don’t collect information that isn’t required to deliver service. Rude.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad At the point where they’re required by law, if I do business with them, to accurately record personal information. Privacy Act.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

RT @snerdish: @stilgherrian Look, just put down “prostitute” and get on with your life. [Yeah, you’re right.]

via Janetter for Mac

So Ubank is now driving me to drink. MOAR WINE.

via Janetter for Mac

And if you want to claim it’s “unusual, Ubank, well, Medicare and DFAT get it right and there’s 13,461 mononyms in Oz. abc.net.au/unleashed/2943…

via Janetter for Mac

Besides, Ubank, the idea that people do just one thing to make money and fit into a cog-in-machine category is completely brain-dead. Twats.

via Janetter for Mac

Ubank, a system that can’t cope with actual name varieties in Australia is incompetent. My “occupation” is none of your business.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, Ubank, I’ve just abandoned your account-creation process because of that arsehattery and I’ll be asking questions formally tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey Ubank, I must have a 2-word name and provide my “industry” and “occupation”? Really? I can’t commit document fraud to join you, sorry.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @scotartt: It’s not event a good regular expression. This would match it -> 04 [True. I’ll mock them later.] @tobin @damonism @mgherman

via Janetter for Mac

Hahahaha! Ubank thinks consumers know regular expressions! “The [mobile phone] value must match this pattern: ^((04[0-9]*)+)$” Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan, updated: Finish this glass of wine; shopping; dinner; writing into the evening. I HAVE BEEN CHECKING MY FACTS, HAVE YOU?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @nomadiquemc: who are these gay people just handing over their willies to @HelenRazer anyway? [No idea what this means. Don’t tell me.]

via Janetter for Mac

@frankarr You’re auto-promoting glue sniffing now? Brave, Sir, brave… ‘)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to frankarr

@dannolan @jeamland “Ermph, I prefer the Sugababes”? Yeah, I’m down with that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

@absalomedia If you have the hash of the password, ten seconds ‘cos there are rainbow tables out to all alphanumerics of, what? 10 chars?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to absalomedia

And… the radio is done. Only time to do facts, not opinion. I’ll post audio later, and teach @rglover702 how to pronounce my name. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

At some point this half-hour you can hear my quick comments on the Google defamation case on ABC@702sydney, streamed at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

Hah! There’s another dog called “Hallucinate Drunken Treasure”.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Too late! But Sheeza Wineo just won that race, and paid between $4.30 and $5.50 for the win depending on which TAB. Bugger!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

LOL. There’s a dog racing this afternoon called “Sheeza Wineo”. There’s an unhappy husband.

via Janetter for Mac

@kd__ Thanks. My 30-year-old Stats 1H is… fuzzy at this distance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kd__

Hello Stats Geeks, can you point me to anything explaining margin of error when it’s all power curves not bell curves / normal distribution?

via Janetter for Mac

At some point between 1530 and 1600 AEDT I’l be talking briefly about the Google defamation ruling with @rglover702 on ABC @702sydney.

via Janetter for Mac

I have to write a thing now, but once that’s finished I’ll come back and work through the flower ID suggestions. Thanks. Baxoon.

via Janetter for Mac

You’re all just guessing now, aren’t you.

via Janetter for Mac

Heh. That’s four completely different flower IDs already. Five if you count @R_Chirgwin’s original erroneous one. SCIENTS! @bunjaree

via Janetter for Mac

Can anyone ID this flower, just photographed at @bunjaree? Bonus points if you can ID the bug. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

That @crikey_news story seems to be paywall’d for the moment. Not sure if it’ll emerge momentarily or in two weeks. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “Google defames us all, but should we sue?” crikey.com.au/2012/11/01/sti…

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @theremonstrator, it ain’t Hakea laurina ‘cos that’s not yellow. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hakea_lau… @R_Chirgwin is a liar.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m not looking for “represent an OS” people but “represent an angle”, perhaps devs, UX, marketing, channel etc. @wheelyweb @NickHodgeMSFT

via Janetter for Mac

@superedge @NickHodgeMSFT @leslienassar It’s the “Patch Monday” podcast so, yes, recording it makes it much easier to publish. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to superedge

The flower I posted just before, @theremonstrator, is a Pin-cushion Hakea (Hakea laurina), or so @R_Chirgwin tells me.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering who should join me and @leslienassar to talk iOS vs WP8 vs Android for Patch Monday. Probably recording 1600 Fri. Any requests?

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Cab to Leura; lunch at the Alexandra Hotel; writing there also; remainder TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @phildobbie: @stilgherrian Or tomorrow morning. [Or, indeed, tomorrow morning.]

via Janetter for Mac

And that’s the @phildobbie Balls Radio spot recorded. It’s about the Google defamation case and it’ll be online tonight, probably.

via Janetter for Mac

Quick addition to today’s plan: Recording a spot for @phildobbie’s Balls Radio. Just, like, now.

via Janetter for Mac

Story filed for @crikey_news. Irritating snuffling continues.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, writing. Back in a bit.

via Janetter for Mac

@darrenpauli Yeah I’ll do that a bit later, when I’m not on deadline. It’s particularly stupid.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenpauli

@juhasaarinen If you mean the Google defamation case, that’s what I’m writing about for @crikey_news. I will he Having an Opinion on it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

I note that I tried a password reset yesterday when I saw Telstra email it to me in the clear (WTF EVEN?), which failed. Maybe that was it.

via Janetter for Mac

And… I’m on the internets. The good-humoured Telstra BigPond support chap did something that included a password reset and it worked.

via Janetter for Mac

Mobile phone call drops out. Well trolled. Redialing…

via Plume for Android

OK, calling BigPond support…

via Plume for Android

Thu plan: Sort BigPond problem; write for @crikey_news; lunch (where?); write for @CSO_Australia; quiet evening.

via Plume for Android

@jplonie I got post-paid. The pre-paid deal was not good value for the way I’d be using it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@domknight I’ve dealt with vast numbers of BigPond support problems for my old network management business. This is familiar territory. :/

via Plume for Android in reply to domknight

@DHS_Dassa Well it’ll only be 3G here at Wentworth Falls, so it should be the same as the tethered phone it replaces.

via Plume for Android in reply to DHS_Dassa

@lionel_bischoff Hah! It’s amazing what you can do with Google Translate and a little practice. I suspect my high school French would fail.

via Plume for Android in reply to lionel_bischoff

@bastardsheep Hmmm… We did lotsa stuff on screen at the Telstra T-Life Penrith yesterday, but I drifted off. Don’t want to go back today.

via Plume for Android in reply to bastardsheep

Well, I shall have a coffee and then call.

via Plume for Android

“Your modem cannot be registered at this, time, please try again tomorrow or contact BigPond activation support.” Ahem.

via Plume for Android

Attempting to connect to the internet using this little Telstra 4G device I got yesterday…

via Plume for Android

Fursday. And all the fur seems to be in my sinuses. Unimpressed.
