@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, there are reasons I dislike being in the city at this time of year.

RT @ataraxite: The two aren’t mutually exclusive. [That’s not a commutative logic though.]

No, your tongue out like it is in that photo doesn’t make you look lascivious. It makes you look like you have a serious mental illness.

Did Jimmy Savile ever do Little Drummer Boy?

I dread the day when I will, inevitably, record a Christmas album.

via Plume for Android

Your tweets would be funnier if they weren’t the product of such comprehensive ignorance.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @brisvegas1 Oh yeah, I remember that time when I was double blind…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT @snare: @stilgherrian @mikko I guess as long as we don’t anthropomorphise apps we’ll be OK? [Never imagine them as bunnies either.]

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce I would like you to tell me several times more. While rubbing my feet.

I always thought that using the atomic bombs on Japan was wrong. And then I remembered karaoke.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mikko: @stilgherrian Also, it’s illegal to rob banks. So not a problem. [Oh so true. Ping @franksting @mpesce @jeamland.]

via Janetter for Mac

@jplonie Please. I’ve had enough good news for one day.

We should not question Samsung. They have robots equipped with machine guns.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @franksting @mikko @jeamland Mind you, Apple just says “No comment”. If you don’t talk about it, it doesn’t exist. Which is worse?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@mpesce @franksting @mikko @jeamland If this is Samsung’s sophistication level when it comes to security, we are truly screwed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT @OrkneyLibrary: Bread Sauce. Tasty or rank? [Rank.]

via Janetter for Mac

Samsung: “The issue may arise only when a malicious application is operated on the affected devices.” tech2.in.com/news/smartphon…

via Janetter for Mac

Samsung reckons their smartphones security flaw is only a problem if an app is malicious. So that’s OK then. tech2.in.com/news/smartphon… HT @mikko

Fri plan, previewed: Write for @CSO_Australia, @crikey_news; errands in Newtown/Enmore; some sort of dinner apocalypse; many regrets.

@gths Yes, West Coast Cooler is still a thing, and just saw someone saying they were drinking them. A man, even. Well, sort of.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gths

West Coast Cooler? Really?

In Sydney the Solstice is tomorrow 21 Dec at 2212 AEDT.

@thornae Yeah sounds like it. I’ve settled for stuffed chicken breast with various things.

BernardKeane if you were wondering “what does the world need now to really help the cause of online freedom”, would you really think of a global GetUp?

@thornae I feel like something healthier than schnitzel. Yes, I see the irony.

I tried quantitative easing once, but we really didn’t have enough lubricant.

OK. Indecisiveness, and laziness, wins. It’ll be dinner at the pub.

@GhostSwirv It’s almost inevitable, given that so much material is in so many places without permission. The internet is fucked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GhostSwirv

So, with the end of the world happening, are you across the details? youtube.com/watch?v=lSZ2by… Or the remake? youtube.com/watch?v=-hJQ18…

@CassPF It is the way of the future. The future will be very easy for us.

@GhostSwirv @GhostSwirv Sorry, I don’t understand your question. Can you rephrase it?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GhostSwirv

@_LeonieGSmith @GeordieGuy But $100k doesn’t buy you much “nationwide media cyber safety education campaign”. You’d need a fridge magnet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LeonieGSmith

Pondering dinner options. Just going to the pub is a lazy choice, but it does fit the requirement specification.

via Janetter for Mac

@_LeonieGSmith @GeordieGuy I remember at the time the help button was launched that it seemed silly. Just promote a simple URL.

I always laugh when I see the masthead “Fast Company”. Isn’t it better to have a profitable company? A sound company?

via Janetter for Mac

The Mayans lived in the Americas, right? So maybe tomorrow is when @JohnBirmingham’s books come true. OARSUM.

via Janetter for Mac

@cxi Oh indeed, it’s a completely unsurprising fact. Present company excepted. Mind you, us Australians aren’t far behind. PCE also.

There’s a strong consensus to the effect that my previous question about gin was ill-informed and the answer obvious. Sorry.

No, Starwood Preferred Guest, I’m not going to click to watch your end-of-year management puff piece vaguely rebranded as a Christmas card.

Noticing an email from someone that I forgot to reply to. Oh well, he’s been arrested by the FBI now so that’s not urgent any more.

@mikal Thanks very much for that. I’ll get it sorted my end now. Cheers.

Sentences which always sound wrong, no matter what the context: “No, it’s meant to look like that.”

@deconstructo @MyFathersthKing Thank you. For two totally different and two totally unrelated reasons. You may now have sex with each other.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to deconstructo

@cheshireb @iiadamogrady Yeah but as I saw someone tweet earlier, if the Mayas were any good at predictions there’d still be Mayans.

No, I don’t wish to join your Blogosphere. It sounds like a deformed Bouncy Castle, bad acid and several kinds of well-lubricated wrong.

When assessing priorities, my focus question is now “What, if any, is the potential downside of not doing this until 2013? Or ever?”

via Janetter for Mac

A day and a half left in the week, and all these things I’m meant to be doing? No, I think I might wave the Clever Charm of Cancellation.

via Janetter for Mac

Virtually no-one seems to have noticed my absence. That actually depresses me more than having unexpectedly slept in.

@cafedave Thanks for the restaurant recommendations.

@intrepidfear The NEW phone is working, yes. The OLD phone is as it was, since I haven’t had time to deal with it any further.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to intrepidfear

@DowntownNewtown Oh yes, that’d be for me. I only get to the post office every four or six weeks, so there’s probably a bunch. Thanks.

RT @intrepidfear: early start… [Yeah, I think the continual pre-0500 starts finally got to me! Surprised there’s no cranky phone calls.]

via Janetter for Mac

So, I sleep badly because of the warm night, then fall asleep as the day starts, and somehow manage to sleep through to 1300? WTF?
