@johnthelutheran You could gainfully drop all the words in that tweet after “people”. Leaving the hashtag, of course.

@Tailgator1 @renailemay @abctech @joshgnosis @phildobbie @R_Chirgwin @NBNCo I’m “lesser extent” ‘cos I haven’t written any re NBN this year.

@Tailgator1 @renailemay @abctech @joshgnosis @phildobbie @R_Chirgwin @NBNCo Interesting point, though maybe just opinions forming over time?

@johnthelutheran We’d be living in Martian colonies with windows made of pure diamond by now, that’s where we’d be. With atomic rifles.

It’s starting to sound like you’ll need some serious deprogramming upon your return.

“Code-breakers foiled by WWII pigeon”? Yea, no, I think the pigeon didn’t know the code. abc.net.au/news/2012-11-2…

@SnarkyPlatypus Certaines difficultés techniques ont été rencontrées par un client.They est difficile et prend du temps. Je vais pleurer.

It is all so very confusing.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La fin de la semaine se conduit mal. Et pas dans le bon sens. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That’s quite enough for this week. Except for the bits that didn’t fit

@Diamondback1949 Depends on your needs. But now that I think about it, all email clients are simply endured.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Diamondback1949

Email template designers need to be able to say “Your customers use Outlook, that’s your problem right there.”

via Janetter for Mac

@CampaignMonitor Also, why do clients always discover weirdnesses in little-used templates late on a Friday afternoon? ;)

via Janetter for Mac

@CampaignMonitor More specifically, tables in final email have added style information in the td tags! Que?

via Janetter for Mac

@CampaignMonitor Hey folks, I seem to be getting extra formatting code / odd line spacing in the campaign using a repeater template. Huh?

@RealNickHodge “Via Belgium” is not the scenic route.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@mpesce Sometimes it’s better taking the scenic route than focusing on dull efficiency.

@bubbiting Oh I’m glad I’m not the only one who found @mroesch interesting. ;)

via Janetter for Mac

I see that someone is living in my future.

via Janetter for Mac

@voiceofapollo Well thank you. But I wouldn’t go as far as to say I understand what I’m talking about.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

@voiceofapollo Guilty as charged. Computing science major, ran a network support business, still have some legacy clients. It’s quite sad.

@neerav I pretty much posted my day’s plan. ;)

@juhasaarinen @R_Chirgwin “My evil dies but my hands mimic nodes, nerves not rings”, says Janetter’s translate. Possibly in error.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@R_Chirgwin But that’s what journalism IS. You Google stuff, and then you write it.

RT @ssharwood: fill it with text files that say “i want to buy nuclear products” and see what ads/people turn up ;-) [I decline your offer.]

Installing Google Drive. I feel dirty.

via Janetter for Mac

@samhighley Yeah I’m pretty sure this is a sign you need to find a new job.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to samhighley

@pfdotn It’s even worse. I can do regular expressions.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to spooky416

Using rsync. Because I can.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Yeah I think you might have missed the implied “someone will be paying me for this” bit.

Rhetorical questions seem to be failing this morning.

Oh. I used my Macquarie Dictionary Online. A writer of Australian English should have a subscription.

@mr_s_wilder True enough, but I suspect that I still won’t be a fan.

via Plume for Android in reply to mr_s_wilder

@mr_s_wilder Oh I’m all for the rich tapestry etc, but not when it obscures meaning. That word is way outside my vocabulary.

via Plume for Android in reply to mr_s_wilder

@mr_s_wilder People should just say everyday then, I reckon.

@johnthelutheran @JohnBirmingham @il_beavo I was heavily indoctrinated by the “Plain English” mob in my 20s. Fancy words are for arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnthelutheran

johnthelutheran @stilgherrian I read an article by a barrister the other day which referred to synallagmatic contracts. No, not a clue, now you mention it.

@JohnBirmingham Ah right. I’ll file it under “words that wankers use to try to make themselves look MOAR SPESHUL but not”. Hi @juhasaarinen!

New blog post: “Talking Click Frenzy on ABC 702 Sydney”, with 10 mins of audio from Wednesday. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @juhasaarinen I think the chances of me doing things the same way as Michelle Grattan are fairly small.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@juhasaarinen Are quotidian postulations a good thing? Or do I need to get a cloth?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

There’s just so many angles to the Click Frenzy debacle. Maybe a sensible analysis will be welcome after the Frenzy Reporting Frenzy.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering whether Click Frenzy should be a thing for the “Patch Monday” podcast or whether we’ll all be sick of it by then.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Sort out client’s confused webby work documentation; plan “Patch Monday” podcast; plan next week; lazy Friday evening.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je vais avoir un week-end paresseux dans les montagnes, je pense.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je crois que je suis heureux de la façon dont la semaine se termine, mais me demander quand je suis éveillé. Et tu?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Well, it’s almost 5am. It’ll have to do.
