@alanjlee Lol! Well, I don’t normally do stories like that, but it was such a high-profile site and the timing worked for me schedule.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alanjlee

Pondering how hectic to make the rest of the week.

via Janetter for Mac

@alanjlee Yeah I haven’t had a chance to re-check what they were doing. Browsing images? Meh. But the entire code and config base? Hah!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alanjlee

@R_Chirgwin Heh. Ms T has a wicked sense of humour. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@semiboganman Oh, give it time. I reckon we’ll see a couple more days of Click Frenzy vivisection. If only there was a catchy anagram.

RT @atirere: if only her almonds were activated [Oh dear God, let’s not go there again!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: @stilgherrian “generative jockey”. [Exactly that, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

“She smells of almonds, like a plump Bakewell pudding; and he is the spoon, the whipped cream, the helpless dollop of warm custard.”

via Janetter for Mac

Oh I can’t deal with any more of that.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis dans une frénésie. Je clique à plusieurs reprises. Et vous?

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Westbound. And not before time.

via Plume for Android

@dannolan Yes, I think that’s the only rational response. I have been baffled all day.

@dannolan Everything is legal if it’s for retail trade.

@snare Oh, now dry and dirty is how I like ‘em, but I don’t know West Winds Sabre. I shall investigate in due course. Thank you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to snare

Dammit. Now I want a martini.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh thank you, @snare, I hadn’t noticed the thing. Possibly BECAUSE I’M AN ADULT.

via Janetter for Mac

I think the name alone (“Click Frenzy” WTF?) sets back Australian online retail a decade. Sounds so… cheap. And not in that good way.

via Janetter for Mac

“Has Click Frenzy fail set back Australian e-retailing?” ponders @spandaslui zdnet.com/au/has-click-f…

via Janetter for Mac

@snare @0x1C Hah! I never got a martini. Or a smell of one. I has disappoint. But we did notify. Persisted, even, following a hang-up.

RT @SisterMorphine: It’s like prom night all over again. [Yes, this IS a reply to my immediately previous tweet. Happy Wednesday.]

@firstdogonmoon YOUR ELECTRICAL LETTER WEBSITE PAGE HAS A DOG TALKING ON A TELEPHONE DO YOU DICTATE THE ELECTRICAL LETTERS TO SOMEONE ELSE.

@snare “Secret” is a relative term. Also, shut up. ;)

@flashman Darren Arnott told me he’s no relation to Click Frenzy’s Grant Arnott.

RT @ivovic: @stilgherrian @posty pic.twitter.com/99HvEDUI [Yeah this seem more like the bits of the internet I’ve seen.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: @stilgherrian Joe Abley explained it in 2005 tech.groups.yahoo.com/group/nanog/me… (“What is `Internet’?”)

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, that’s what I get for asking questions, or even just musing aloud. People respond. Sometimes helpfully. Most times not.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s starting to look like a Lessons from Click Frenzy episode of the Patch Monday podcast could be a thing. More angles than a triangle.

via Janetter for Mac

Sometimes I wonder how the internet works at all.

via Janetter for Mac

Told you I had a SEKRIT. Well, it isn’t that SEKRIT any more. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Password exposed in Click Frenzy security slip” zdnet.com/password-expos…

The amount of spin emerging from this Click Frenzy idiocy is… dizzying.

via Janetter for Mac

@DrMiaow More princes. More pubic hair. It’s win-win, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DrMiaow

Oh. Wrong prince. Or wrong public hair. One of them.

RT @elronxenu: @stilgherrian What more could we ask of you. [Pictures? A brief symbolic dance?]

via Janetter for Mac

@MetaMikeBiggs I know, I tend to be depressingly well-behaved on other people’s daylight radio programs. But that way I get asked back.

No I’m not tweeting this… just yet.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering what I should now do with the very funny and (non-)SEKRIT information I’ve just been given.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BundyB: Did you try the shrubbery outside your window? [Oh! Oh! I remember that party! Well, bits of it.]

via Janetter for Mac

Looking for my pants.

via Janetter for Mac

And the radio is done. I’ll post the audio of that later today, should my recording have actually worked.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for the ABC @702sydney wireless radio thing… stand by…

via Janetter for Mac

Right, I’m ready to talk Click Frenzy on ABC @702sydney right after this news bulletin. You may listen at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

RT @leslienassar: Nah, you need something that pairs well with “frenzy”, like a zombie apocalypse or Gangnam Style. [Stop it. Stop it now.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @gusworldau: I’d say no. This was way more predictable than a train wreck. [As you said here lifehacker.com.au/2012/11/click-… yes, and I agree.]

via Janetter for Mac

Considering whether I should use the term “train wreck” or not.

via Janetter for Mac

I guess the solution to all this is to hire some botnet time from your friendly local Russian mafia and DDoS yourself well in advance.

via Janetter for Mac

You can get a good sense of the Click Frenzy technical timeline from @jdub’s Twitter stream from last night.

via Janetter for Mac

@teags Your Twitter client isn’t correctly handling replies, so I have no idea which tweet you’re disagreeing with. Also, watch for updates.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to teags

RT @NewtonMark: 2Gbps of TCP RST packets :) [And every packet was 40% off.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark There were claims of 2Gbps of non-image content last night. Skeptical, nobody I talked to saw anything like that via peering.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: No, Click Frenzy hastily (and badly) migrated to cloud front after their Ultraserve VPSs exploded. [Thank you. Explains.]

via Janetter for Mac

So Click Frenzy was running on Amazon CloudFront? I suspect plenty of fingerpointing between them and developers right about now.

via Janetter for Mac

I seem to recall @seamus and I solving the entire problem of online retail in Australia last night. Malt generates expertise, you know.

via Janetter for Mac

For my sins, I’ve just agreed to join the discussion of Click Frenzy on ABC @702sydney just after 0900 AEDT. Listen at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

Hitler finds out that Click Frenzy crashed, of course. youtube.com/watch?v=GcgJOR… HT @garystark

I also approve of the Google Translate robot’s pronunciation of เผ็ดมาก.

via Janetter for Mac

In the spirit of a tweet I saw earlier, ก๋วยเตี๋ยวรสเผ็ดรสเผ็ดมาก has produced the usual next-morning result. And thus the world is framed.

via Janetter for Mac

@johnthelutheran Oh you dear sweet thing, you’d like people to check the context before they tweet? Just start on the gin now and save time.

@juhasaarinen @mynokiablog Hi! My name is also Michael. As far as I can tell, there was no cocaine last night.

Me, July 2011: “In IT’s dance of the inflating elephants, Microsoft is stumbling” crikey.com.au/2011/07/22/in-… Can Elephant dance now?

via Janetter for Mac

Microsoft has bet the farm on the world agreeing that The Interface of Little Squares is the future they want. We shall see.

via Janetter for Mac

But with Nokia strapped to Microsoft, they’ll need a Plan B. One assumes Lumia models also run Android in Helsinki back rooms.

via Janetter for Mac

Consensus was Nokia now has good kit, and the brand has plenty of goodwill. “It’ll be interesting to see how it goes,” we said.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s @mynokiablog’s pics and unseemly gushing copy from . There were people there too, I recall. mynokiablog.com/2012/11/20/nok…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh well. Just wait until 2013, when certain plans will be revealed. Just you wait.

via Janetter for Mac

Why am I even looking at flight schedules? What is wrong with me?

via Janetter for Mac

In theory I still could get to Melbourne today for @BusinessSpec’s 5th birthday party. But it’d be a bloody expensive free drink.
