Back at the SEKRIT location, bathed in sweat.

via Plume for Android

Unreasonably long fuse.

via Plume for Android

RT @iain_chalmers How about the “402 Payment Required” response? [How about we just strangle the entitled fucktards?]

via Plume for Android

OH: “… my favourite tofu and tomato sauce dish…” Because the world needs more than one?

via Plume for Android

Being trolled on a tram. Where it’s done with style.

via Plume for Android

Resorting to T-pop ballads. Yes, the situation is that desperate.

via Plume for Android

Oh well, I’ve thrown the hand grenade now. It has long fuse. The suspense is unbelievable.

via Plume for Android

Being machine-gunned with bullets of irony.

via Plume for Android

RT @shiftkey: hahaha making people read RFCs is an easy way to win a debate [It’s Friday. It’s not worth expending any more energy.]

via Janetter for Mac

May I recommend that everyone follow @missamanda for her insights into human nature. She really is quite clever.

via Janetter for Mac

@missamanda Right. Your deployment of logic is to say that I’m stupid. Well done, arsehat. Brav-fucking-o!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missamanda

RT @chrisjrn timbl should be able to help on Friday. [Well, I’m interviewing Sir Tim Berners-Lee with @simonhackett for @iiNet on Thursday.]

via Janetter for Mac

Because “It wasn’t what I expected” is the logical fallacy of argument by personal ignorance.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe someone could point out the bit in the HTTP protocol specification that says that links go things that are free.

via Janetter for Mac

@missamanda Being “surprised” by something. Goodness. Did you consider calling the police?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missamanda

The odd thing is, I’ve been using the internet a decade or more longer than the Instant Fucking Experts telling me how it’s “meant” to work.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe someone can explain why it is SO FUCKING TERRIBLE to be told something costs money. Sense of entitlement much?

via Janetter for Mac

@jonkudelka Yes, well I have a way of dealing with people who might object. youtube.com/watch?v=ZCldL3…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonkudelka

@missamanda Yes, I can imagine how your entire day might be ruined by that terrible happenstance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missamanda

@MongrelNews Fucked if I know. I’m just a contributor to @crikey_news, emailing in my stories. They don’t trust is with access.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EmuAnon

I still think it’s bullshit to warn people that a link might be paywalled. You recommend books, films and music you have to pay for.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “Why you SHOULD worry about cybercrime (but it’s no war)” crikey.com.au/2013/01/25/sti… (Paywalled, free trial.)

via Janetter for Mac

For those not already well into the traditional Australia Day process of getting shitfaced drunk for three days, I shall tweet a link.

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardKeane Oh no, it is paywalled from here too. I just didn’t look properly earlier, it seems.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@MongrelNews Thank you, I guess, even though that’s a bit cruel.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EmuAnon

@joannejacobs I’d recommend seeking urgent medical attention.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joannejacobs

Oh. I was paywalled?

via Janetter for Mac

Early, but let’s revisit @ApostrophePong’s excellent Australia Day photo stilgherrian.com/human-nature/p… and a new national anthem stilgherrian.com/politics/i_am_…

via Janetter for Mac

@JenBrockie @markatextor Oh dear. This is getting very close to “FOOD IS NOT THE SAME AS WHEN I WAS A CHILD MAKE IT STOP”. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JenBrockie

@markatextor Are you flirting? You’re flirting, aren’t you!

via Janetter for Mac

MT @markatextor: The modern, stacked sandwich is the pretentious food equivalent of a war crime [True. Thank God for meetings at the pub.]

via Janetter for Mac

The meeting is over, and I have moved to the corner window. Should anyone care.

via Janetter for Mac

A good business meeting is a business meeting with free prawns.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dannolan: @GeordieGuy @stilgherrian I yield to the calendar gods [Wot? Pope Gregory? Julius Caesar? The Mayans?]

via Janetter for Mac

One more meeting to go. And I’m two minutes away from the pub where it is being held.

via Plume for Android

This afternoon has included a very successful conversation about a certain production project next week and rather too much sweating.

via Janetter for Mac

So .ics files are the work of the devil. No, you cannot just email things into my schedule.

via Janetter for Mac

Typical. The only decent on the train alights at the first stop.

via Janetter for Mac

chrisberg i only support cyberhuman rights

@seamus The Pun Gmomes are going to eviscerate you, you know that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to seamus

Suspicion breeds confidence.

via Janetter for Mac

“Freedom protects hate,” @BernardKeane, so we’d better get rid of all that hate-riddled Freedom.

via Janetter for Mac

@posty @mpesce @hyper_mpesce “The cyber prefix seems to be used non-ironically only by policymakers and the mentally feeble,” I wrote today.

via Janetter for Mac

@PointZeroOne @dawnstarau @Idealaw You are of course forgetting the worst of all, CYBERPOX!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

GreenJ i think we need to pace ourselves on the Katter candidate outrage people. 150 seats. several months. etc.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 2:15 PM, Jan 25th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@dobes I suspect that No Doz makes the intended meaning clearer, though doling out gov-speed to building sites has a certain absurdity.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@GreenJ Dear Sir, is your breakfastifying of a holiday-only nature, or have done something with that other woman?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

Oh that’s right. I remember now. @dobes took my amphetamines.

via Janetter for Mac

WHERE ARE MY TICKETS TO PONYCON AU?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: @stilgherrian problematic communicating utilising infrequent verbiage exclusively [Capacious commiserations substantiate.]

via Janetter for Mac

Words can be very dangerous, you know. youtube.com/watch?v=OGFz9g…

via Janetter for Mac

OMFG, @dobes, I just realised… I WRITE WORDS. I AM PART OF THE PROBLEM.

via Janetter for Mac

Beware of words. Especially popular words, because the more popular the words the more dangerous they fnord are. The. The. The. The. The.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: Trending cyber-hype! RT @runoutoftweets: stay safe friends twitpic.com/bxzn7i [I resign. All security advice is now written.]

via Janetter for Mac

AdrianChen A dystopian future where millions are imprisoned for pirating “Downton Abbey” + a prison hierarchy emerges based on what season you pirated.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 1:55 PM, Jan 25th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@dannolan It’s true. @leslienassar died for our sins. No wait.

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “Why you SHOULD worry about cybercrime (but it’s no war)” crikey.com.au/2013/01/25/sti… It’s a response to crikey.com.au/2013/01/24/ele…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @suffert: Italian-language page at MSN redirects to Cool Exploit Kit, serves ransomware flip.it/llbQj [Bonus functionality!]

via Janetter for Mac

When someone tweets two sentences, and the second one is “Just ask @dannolan”, does it really matter what the first one is?

via Janetter for Mac

@ozdj @RealNickHodge @bernietb It’s hard work, but someone’s got to do it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

“Martial partners”? So, like NATO?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @darrenpauli: xkcd.com/899/ [Yes, these are very good numbers indeed.]

via Janetter for Mac

Now playing at the SEKRIT location: Irene Cara’s “Flashdance”. youtube.com/watch?v=ILWSp0…

via Janetter for Mac

It’s so sad to see a former client’s new website with stuff done in ways that you would’ve killed in early production, let alone go live.

via Janetter for Mac

Not as difficult as a barbed wire enema, matey.

via Janetter for Mac

Strong evidence has just been tendered which suggests that I can’t count beyond single-digit numbers.

via Janetter for Mac

dobes We need to change the flag in order to provide stimulus to the tattoo industry.

erkpod It’s Day 5 of Social Media Awareness Week? So why am I finding out about this now? Furthermore, do I care? LOL

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 11:04 AM, Jan 25th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Story filed for @crikey_news. Story for @zdnetaustralia dropped because things change. Time to find my pants.

via Janetter for Mac

SnarkyPlatypus Anybody wearing the flag as a hijab?

StephenAtHome I believe Ayn Rand’s first love poem went: Roses are red/ violets are blue/ finish this poem yourself / you dependent parasite

Fri plan: Write for @crikey_news (now); write for @zdnetaustralia; errand Enmore; plan next week inc Canberra; 1630 meeting Haymarket; TGIF.

Intel launches a smartphone for Africa. And calls it Yolo. Sigh. theverge.com/2013/1/24/3912… HT @dahowlett

via Janetter for Mac

@yinettesys That said, is there any chance you could point me to any other similar search strings that you’ve seen?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

RT @sylmobile: Australia has the opportunity to be the first country with a QR code flag.

via Janetter for Mac

@yinettesys Indeed. But I mean a search of Twitter so I can find who posted it first, so I can trace back to whoever first did the hack.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to yinettesys

OK, time to write my response to @BernardKeane’s “Eleven reasons to be sceptical of warnings of cyber warfare” crikey.com.au/2013/01/24/ele…

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland Yeah just think about that question for a while, and then think about whether you needed to ask it. Ever. @thornae

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@shiftkey Ta. Sounds like it’s going to be hard to figure out where it started. Unless I think of a magic set of search terms.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@shiftkey Is this something you discovered, or something you found out from elsewhere?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@thornae I have a number of ideas gurgling in my head, potentially involving @jeamland and a variety of other interesting folks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thornae

RT @shiftkey: oh come on github.com/search?p=2&q=%… [Hey everyone! Programmers are the most intelligent people in the world!]

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus If tennis players suffer a legitimate injury then they have ways of shutting these things down during the match.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@thornae Thank you. As you presumably saw, it was a straight-up commercial decision by @zdnetaustralia tat I couldn’t argue against.

@gusworldau Are you suggesting that I would have to plan ahead to include alcohol in my day?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gusworldau

@SnarkyPlatypus Il n’est pas nécessaire d’entrer dans les détails spécifiques à ce stade, ou alors mon avocat m’a conseillé de dire.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus J’ai été livré avec un médicament spécial. Tout est maintenant parfait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fri plan, draft: Write for @crikey_news; plan next week, including Canberra; 1630 meeting Haymarket; remainder TBA.
