@R_Chirgwin @jplonie It would be interesting to see if Alex would actually explode. But we’d then have to kill his whole family.

@markatextor Oh I think I probably agree. I’m too tired to think clearly tonight.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin I don’t think you’re allowed to burn Alex to make electricity.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Ah. And I’m on the 0847 to Sydney tomorrow, back up on Saturday. The forecast is not promising.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@markatextor I’m not quite sure what you mean. Is this the “Android is less well-integrated than iOS” thing?

SpaceKidette If you can’t accurately articulate the facts of a situation in context so readers understand can you call yourself ‘journalist’?

So I wonder if Samsung puts a “hard-coded management account” into their smartphones? That’d be sweet.

RT @dead_aeroplane: @stilgherrian That one of the Kray twins? [No, but in a way you’re thinking in the right directions. There were clues.]

via Janetter for Mac

Well that was all much more complicated that it needed to be. Please send copious quantities of bourbon and ketamine.

@shiftkey My planning has been atrocious lately, sorry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@shiftkey Alas, three fingers of scotch would require heading out into that storm and making my way to the village.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

It’s true, [redacted], this is the solution. I do quite agree. youtube.com/watch?feature=…

via Janetter for Mac

It has started raining. Solidly. And the thunder is increasingly ominous.

via Janetter for Mac

Adjusting my expectations. Downwards. More sulky now.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s rather a lot of thunder happening out there.

via Janetter for Mac

The media covers Julie Bishop because 1. important things said? 2. rootability? 3. habit?

It’d be helpful if @ZDNet’s / @zdnetaustralia’s RSS feed mentioned the author’s name and which effing country a story was about.

@joshgnosis @SnarkyPlatypus Given that description, I think I agree with your assessment.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: What is a vegetarian parma? Does Not Compute. [This is a fair question, but my interest in the answer is zero.]

RT @paulwallbank: Ooh an “Empower Your Service Desk with Gamification” workshop. I wonder if @stilgherrian would like to go with me to that?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @iain_chalmers: “This may require a regular expression” Now you’ve got two problems..nedbatchelder.com/blog/201204/tw…qO [This is moderately true, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

I think (fingers crossed!) that we’ve finally found the cause of a thoroughly obscure and annoying problem that’s plagued us for days.

via Janetter for Mac

via Janetter for Mac

Right. I’d better start looking at this client webby problem. I’m bracing myself. This may require a regular expression. I may be some time.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: @snerdish I demand that you delete the inside of your pants.

via Janetter for Mac

That said, @mumbrella, a cinema is not a public place. That means they can ask you to leave, but I don’t know about making you delete.

GreenJ can i just say that the debasement of the term ‘meme’ over the past 15 years is symptomatic of something or other. thank you.

Right. Time to get this interview done so I can stop pretending I actually feel human this morning.
