@en_gy Darling Harbour has fireworks every Saturday night as a standard attraction.

And that’s the second and final interview for the “Patch Monday” podcast. I’ll do the last edit and link on Monday morning, I think.

via Janetter for Mac

Bracing myself for the last tasks of my overly-long unexpected working Saturday: record final podcast bits and back up the data.

@R_Chirgwin Shakespeare did many great things. Understanding physics was not one of them.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Surely that depends on the natures of surprise, shock, delight and pantlessness?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Thinking thoughts. Some of them are complicated.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s all a matter of whose arse you get off on.

via Janetter for Mac

Ms Rinehart does seem to having difficulties with her current heirs. I’m sure we could come to some, erm, “arrangment”. @johncarneyau

via Janetter for Mac

RT @johncarneyau: Or “Get off your bludging fat arse and inherit a mining empire like a normal person.” [Well, now that you mention it…]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @thehuxman: I’m slightly aroused by the new pic [And this is quite right and proper.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @R_Chirgwin: You left out Twiggy. [Well, I’ll need something NEXT Christmas!]

via Janetter for Mac

@SmurfingBeer I don’t excrete waste. It’s inefficient. And I don’t know where to, erm, obtain someone else’s discreetly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SmurfingBeer

This does feel a lot better, you know.

via Janetter for Mac

And then I could get a rubber stamp made to look like a dinosaur with Clive Palmer’s head and stamp it on the wrapping paper.

via Janetter for Mac

The message could be something like “Haha you are such an arsehole you should drink and socialise less and work for $2 an hour.”

via Janetter for Mac

I think that for Christmas this year I’ll just buy everyone a copy of Gina Rinehart’s new book, inscribed with a personal message.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus That’s given me an excellent idea about how I will run my airline.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus “Coral Economy Class”? I’d demand an upgrade to sandstone. Then again, too pushy and they’ll downgrade you to gravel.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, it was annoying that Saturday became a long and solid working day, but it’s pleasing that it’s all gone to plan.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis plein de vérités. Les vérités de toutes sortes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Je l’ai sur l’autorité de particulièrement bon que certains de ce que vous dites n’est pas tout à fait vrai.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il va remarquablement bien ici, étant donné que mon samedi est devenu une journée de travail inattendu. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @aziazone: Actually it is now the rice harvesting season in rural thailand and all return to help out. [Oops. My brain-calendar is bad.]

via Janetter for Mac

Nov-Dec is riot season in Bangkok ‘cos poor farmers have a work lull and can be hired as rent-a-crowd protesters. That’s my understanding.

via Janetter for Mac

Thai police fire tear gas at anti-government protest in Bangkok, reports @SBSNews bit.ly/10JXVrt Or as we call it, November.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bernietb: Wentworth Falls. We can’t stop here, this is @stilgherrian country. [Quite so. Keep movin’, stranger.]

via Janetter for Mac

Fucking thing up. At least it’s up.

via Janetter for Mac

@voiceofapollo Oh 0500 exists. But it does mean I’m a bit slow now, as I meander my way through the “Patch Monday” podcast production.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

@drearyclocks @eldonnn I’ve yet to explore Auburn properly. Must do so. Sorry the internet ate your comment, @mraikos.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to drearyclocks

RT @bernietb: Crossing the Nepean. pic.twitter.com/sQCOKC8F [Yeah, it’s been done.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @nanopunk: Video games is a “gender thing” according to [Like in French, where tables and tractors are a gender thing too?]

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbowler Oh thanks for making the connection.Yes, @stigm, deserves credit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbowler

Many thanks to Stig at @CampaignMonitor, whose suggestions last night saved me a lot of time this morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Reggae made from ukuleles? Deliberately? That’s like taking anthrax and making it radioactive!

via Janetter for Mac

@vealmince I don’t hate ukuleles. Hate is too strong. It’s more about despising the kind of non-Hawaiians who think they’re wonderful.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

@juhasaarinen Do you want me to come over there and slap you?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Yesterday’s blog post “Two casually racist encounters concerning Auburn” has generated two “interesting” comments. stilgherrian.com/politics/two-c…

One low point in my life is knowing the “correct” way to spell ukulele. In scare-quotes because there’s nothing correct about ukuleles.

via Janetter for Mac

@markatextor That’s up with perpetual motion machines, alas. What constitutes spam is in the mind of the recipient.

So, you know that special kind of hell that is constructed from HTML tables and spacer.gif? There. Oh, and it’s got to render in Outlook.

via Janetter for Mac

Oddly enough, pre-0700 is actually a good working time for me, so I’m starting on this email template fixing now while my brain is fresh.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan: Fix client email templates (now); prepare for then 1300, 1800 record “Patch Monday” segments; interspersed problem-fixing.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering whether I should tell @R_Chirgwin about the collapsing bed, or whether that would just lead to a need for “explanations”.

via Janetter for Mac

Glaring at an inconvenient and as-yet-unexplained charge on my MasterCard statement. THIS MAY WELL DISRUPT MY PORCINE PLEASURES.

via Janetter for Mac

Indeed, @SnarkyPlatypus, I remember when Christmas was held in December. late December, even. Nevertheless, there is now do much free booze.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s quite depressing to see so many people who claim independence of mind turn into consumerdroids at the snap of a finger.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Merci. Je souhaite aussi que l’indulgence invite aux plaisirs du porc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I can look forward to next week, though. Already three lunches and three Christmas parties (yes, I know) booked.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Le problème devrait être facile à résoudre, mais de temps. Et je suis irrité par la nécessité de travailler aujourd’hui.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Sat plan, draft: Fix email template rendering problem; record bits for “Patch Monday” podcast; deal with certain irritations; quiet night.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il me semble assez bien, en dehors de “la nécessité” de se réveiller avant l’aube. Et HTML. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ataraxite Oh, um, yes. Obviously. Of course.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite This could only be true if they were buried alive in a scrubland setting and a concrete slab laid over the top.

via Janetter for Mac

And so it begins again. It seems I must experience 0500 while wide awake this week. Alright then. Pricks.
