@mediahunter Ah that makes slightly more sense now. Slightly.

New blog post: “Script Challenge prize finally organised”, of interest to maybe 30 people globally. stilgherrian.com/language/scrip…

@mediahunter @saasu I don’t understand the question. I just went to key in the order I just made and there was no contact for Amazon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mediahunter

So my little exercise with Amazon was convincing them who I am and where I live and where they can email me.

via Janetter for Mac

Wow. The last time I ordered something from Amazon was before 1 July 2007, ‘cos that’s when I started bookkeeping in @saasu.

via Janetter for Mac

No, @steven_noble, the aliens don’t phone me. The messages appear directly in my digestive tract.

via Janetter for Mac

Who just tried to phone me?

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen I am worse than far worse things than that, you muppet!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Fri plan, preview: Finish @zdnetaustralia article; 0900 North Sydney Girls HIgh School; errand; 1230 Watterson PR lunch, South Steyne; TGIF.

Using the internet to create food because fuck it.

@feed_the_chooks I’m fairly sure that no-one deserves to be filled with Coolabah. Not even bad people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feed_the_chooks

Oh. A request to reprint some of my stuff in a textbook. And one to do a guest lecture at a local university. Yes, the youth shall benefit!

via Janetter for Mac

Dealing with speaking invitations for next year, one as far ahead as June! Weird.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Anyway, I pulled the site out of Google’s cache and it was using the skin standard.css, so I’ve set it back to that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin The skin is just CSS, so you might have just changed the colours of things. [shrugs]

Google Maps launches SDK for iOS techcrunch.com/2012/12/12/goo… as predicted by @leslienassar on “Patch Monday” in Sept zdnet.com/apple-maps-you…

via Janetter for Mac

@btckr No problems. I just don’t have the energy to go on and on about things. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to btckr

@shiftkey Hmmm… I’ve never really been a far of eggnog. Possibly because I’ve not been exposed to a good one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@btckr I supposed I’d better come back and wrap this up. No dramas. A genuine glitch, it seems, fixed quickly. Memory loss strikes already.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to btckr

@chrisbrownie It’s Christmas. Why would anyone smile?

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie Oh thank you. And now I have a dilemma. I like yfrog.com/nzzwosp But I’ve traditionally used stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

Well that day pretty much went to plan, despite the unexpected glitches. And it’s a New Moon at 1942 AEDT.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, @R_Chirgwin, the @bunjaree website is operational in a non-ugly way again. But did we created our own skin for the booking calendar?

via Janetter for Mac

There is good news from Kiev! I repeat, there is good news from Kiev.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Well, the tweet came from me. And nothing about me is good.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes Oh yes. By 1100 is easy. I have to be back at North Sydney Girls High School by 0900. And I think I might skip the party.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes I was just venting about The Nature of Writing. But yes, it’s for that story. So thank you. I came up with a far more powerful point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Of course. Just 20 minutes before deadline I think of a far better metaphor to support my argument, but a complete rewrite will be needed.

via Janetter for Mac

This article has too too many many words. As does this tweet.

via Janetter for Mac

@SusanPAus Anyway, it’s been sorted now. My interest has plummeted. Besides, I’m on deadline. @Glebe2037 @lynlinking @earleyedition @btckr

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SusanPAus

@SusanPAus @Glebe2037 Yes, attribution seems to have been lost somewhere between @earleyedition and @lynlinking and @btckr [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SusanPAus

RT @btckr: I’m author TruthinMedia site. Clarifying source of contributed dbase. About info wp.me/p2QkUI-3 [Nice fast work, thanks.]

via Janetter for Mac

My comment at the Action Front for Truth in News Media is awaiting moderation. I kept a copy just in case.

via Janetter for Mac

Who the heck is the Action Front for Truth in News Media? …thinmediaresourcecentre.wordpress.com They stole @earleyedition’s old work. earleyedition.com/2009/04/22/aus…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @tweetingtechno: Huge rise in people using in-game chat in WoW. (US soldiers already doing this - WoW not monitored, FB is).

via Janetter for Mac

I forgot to say on @666canberra, imagine the morale problem if defence families couldn’t stay in touch with relatives via social networks.

via Janetter for Mac

The radio spot on ABC @666canberra, it is done. But once more the stream dropped out and I don’t have a recording. I has a sad.

via Janetter for Mac

Not an ADFA suggestion to ban defence folks from social media, @citizen_cam, but an op-ed in Fairfax. canberratimes.com.au/it-pro/securit…

via Janetter for Mac

Roughly 15 mins until I talk ADFA hack and banning military families from social media on ABC @666canberra. Stream at abc.net.au/canberra/

via Janetter for Mac

All that said, @kimogrady1 @darrenpauli, personal stuff online does risk covert operations. cso.com.au/article/398581…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @kimogrady1: LOTS of derp being said about this so called ‘ADFA’ hack. It is not a natsec breach. [True, still lame tho. @darrenpauli.]

via Janetter for Mac

At 1315 AEDT I’m talking the ADFA hack and “Defence staff should ‘erase their online lives’” canberratimes.com.au/it-pro/securit… on ABC @666canberra

via Janetter for Mac

Well that’s been an interesting morning of website-related break-fixing an troubleshooting. Not quite how this week was planned.

via Janetter for Mac

Note to self: North Sydney is not North Adelaide.

via Janetter for Mac

@bluntshovels @JB_AU I know @joshgnosis has been following spectrum for 3G/4G. And the rest, Josh? @BernardKeane too, tho he’s not tech.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bluntshovels

@SnarkyPlatypus Si cela est votre plan, puis une sorte d’accompagnement musical doit être fournie.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis ennuyé que j’ai brisé la chose qui ne peut être réparé en Ukraine. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Thu plan: Fix @bunjaree website; many minor client web tasks, inc WordPress upgrades; write for @zdnetaustralia; CBS Interactive Xmas Party.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin You will have just received an email that contains a decision to make.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@mulesrasch Try again. :) It most certainly is 13 December, coming up to 0645 AEDT.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mulesrasch

@R_Chirgwin They’re only warning messages that make things look ugly. As far as I can tell you still have a working booking system.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look, @R_Chirgwin! WordPress 3.5 broke the @bunjaree website a bit. I guess I know what I’m doing kinda immediately. Email follows. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

It is the 13th of December and I shall sail around the world. Actually, I won’t. It’ll be far more mundane than that.
