@ApostrophePong Snap! I was going to use that as an example. Camera and sound.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

It’s called “huffing”.

via Janetter for Mac

@Serrels So are your drugs finally kicking in?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Serrels

@expectproblems So what you’re saying is that your life has become a choice between being a failure or a loser. Yep, that’s it.

I simply don’t understand how Australia’s current children will grow into sensible adults without access to explosives.

@ApostrophePong People talk about “data journalist” as one job, but I see it more as a team of two people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong I reckon the best data visualisations need decent programming skills, so you can quickly manipulate the data.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

This thing on data visualisation that @ApostrophePong is posting pics from looks interesting. The Lizard People have all the fun.

via Janetter for Mac

@smperris Yeah I’m sick. Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible.

@hailants @riskybusiness @Asher_Wolf I wonder whether anyone will pick up that as a story though? :)

@hailants @riskybusiness @Asher_Wolf Yeah you said that. So what? The Oz searches in its own image database. Likely a junior. On deadline.

@hailants @riskybusiness @Asher_Wolf Really? I doubt I’d even have noticed if not stated. Rinehart’s an Invisible Gorilla here. So to speak.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

@smperris Oh I doubt I’d go to the expense of lubricant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

@smperris Now, I did give you the version number. Why might I have done that? And what do you think I might suggest next?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

@hailants @riskybusiness @Asher_Wolf Remember, news outlets often use a photo of completely the wrong person, let alone a subtle variation.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

@hailants @riskybusiness @Asher_Wolf What makes you think a busy newsroom junior pulling a file photo even notices such details?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

@smperris If that’s the only edit, you can even do it in QuickTime Player 7 and cut and paste.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

Of course what we have next, @riskybusiness, is the claim that police were in cahoots with Rinehart to cover her association… ;)

via Janetter for Mac

To help defuse the tinfoil, here”s a direct link to why Gina Rinehart was removed from a photo. au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/a/-/br… HT @riskybusiness

@RealNickHodge @michaelneale @SnarkyPlatypus I should probably contact the (distant) family member who’s been compiling the history.

@michaelneale No 4G here. I have 3G, but last I tried not quite enough to stream. And their video player defeats DownloadHelper.

@NickHodgeMSFT @SnarkyPlatypus I can see, phonetically, how Australianised French would sound more German than French in UK accents.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@SnarkyPlatypus My experience with Thai is that you get the proper pronunciation pretty fast when you’re surrounded by it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus I had wondered about that. Last time I heard you speak French aloud your pronunciation was atrocious. No offence.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Colvinius Thanks, Mark. I listen to podcasts etc when cooking, doing data entry etc. That’s now in the queue. I don’t listen live to much.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@SnarkyPlatypus I am told by an actual frog that your Français is quite good.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@dead_aeroplane @SnarkyPlatypus I have some high school French, but I use that to fine-tune Google by feeding it better English idiom.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dead_aeroplane

@Colvinius Plus I switched to the hard sciences at high school. Having Hamlet vivisected by bored 14yo boys did not convey its majesty.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius Well, you’ve inspired me to re-explore it. Been ages since I’ve seen a production of any Shakespeare.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@dead_aeroplane @SnarkyPlatypus Google Translate is your friend. The mobile app does voice-to-text and vice versa too.

@Colvinius Indeed, thank you, but is the Scottish play the best omen for me? ;)

@SnarkyPlatypus La décoloration est un effet secondaire des médicaments. Il va passer. Afrique du Nord alimentaire peut être délicieux.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Colvinius My overall strategy is to knock out whatever bugs ail me before I head to Singapore on Tuesday. Thanks for asking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius It’s a good lecture. You’re a fine storyteller. Fatigue hit me, so I’ll do the monologue tomorrow. Deadline is Monday anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli de la fatigue, qui je l’espère n’est pas d’origine porcine. Je suis tout à fait horizontale. Et tu?

Gosh, that @Colvinius chap seems decidedly popular.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m sure I can generate sustained infuriation that’d astound even @mpesce. That felt like a challenge too.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s @Colvinius’ Andrew Olle lecture without the audio problems of the MP3 posted earlier. abc.net.au/local/stories/…

via Janetter for Mac

@nehadk @paulwallbank @mpesce @kcarruthers @JoeHockey Oh please, MUST everything be turned into a party political? :( [Sulks.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nehadk

@mpesce @kcarruthers @JoeHockey I find that unlikely. I’m sure I could be more infuriating, for starters.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

So has @JoeHockey set us a challenge, to infuriate him even more than Austar/Foxtel tech support? But HOW?

via Janetter for Mac

Fatigue. Severe. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll take a break, listen to @Colvinius’ speech, and have a glass of wine before writing my opening monologue.

via Janetter for Mac

And the rough cut of the podcast core panel discussion is done. I probably spend too much time creating a false-stereo image. Back it up!

via Janetter for Mac

Hey ABC Radio folks, MP3 of @Colvinius’ lecture at mpegmedia.abc.net.au/newsradio/audi… seems to have audio skips? Can describe to anyone able to fix.

via Janetter for Mac

@bigmac I had the 4G’s Wi-Fi hot spot set to low power / short range. @R_Chirgwin was walking between it and me, stirring the EM waves.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigmac

@bigmac Well I’ll get the Ethernet over Powerline to Rosella Cottage back up soon, and we’ll be back on ADSL. But I figured out the problem.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigmac

Excellent, the “Patch Monday” podcast recording is done. Thank you, @kcarruthers @bigmac @leslienassar. Data being backed up now.

via Janetter for Mac

via Janetter for Mac

So @leslienassar is there but Skype is… misbehaving. We are conducting experiments now.

via Janetter for Mac

@kcarruthers @bigmac So @leslienassar has appeared. We’ll reconnect at 1115 AEDT precisely, OK?

via Janetter for Mac

@leslienassar Where are you? We’re all here!

via Janetter for Mac

Firing up the Skype.

Very shortly I’ll be recording the “Patch Monday” mobile OS trollfest episode with @kcarruthers @leslienassar @bigmac. So no opinions there.

@smperris Brute force attempts to do what? And watching for what purpose?

Yeah undercooked pork that was in the fridge for two days. I don’t see any potential problems here, do you?

Listen carefully, children. Hear that quiet sobbing? That’s the sound of @stilgherrian running out of butane before breakfast is cooked.
