OTOH, @snare, given the Assoc of Computing Machinery, I should probably down tools now. Just in case.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @snare: does lifting glasses count as operating machinery? [My working definition is “moving parts”, so probably no.]

via Janetter for Mac

“This medicine my cause drowsiness,” notes again, after a two-hour unscheduled nap. Oh. I’d better not “operate machinery”.

@timwattsau @feed_the_chooks How do you know that a specific tweet was the reason for the followers? Correlation is not causation.

@MrSABlack I’ll have to considerable that point of view. :)

Thing is, @bengrubb, how can that even be news at @smh if you didn’t quote one single tweet?

via Janetter for Mac

“Criminals breach Australian tax system”, writes @bengrubb. smh.com.au/it-pro/securit…

Fri plan, belated: Food; clear backlog of client’s little webby tasks; cry; early TGIF, if possible.

DARPA is encouraging retweet spam? Or just wanting to map your social graph for their own purposes? Ah, that’s so funny.

And in all of that, what has the audience, the people you’re meant to serve, learned about cows? Nothing whatsoever. So what’s the point?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @pseudomorph: Of course. Then there is a second story in ‘Joe Hockey says Swan’s calculations incorrect, cows actually blue’. [Indeed.]

via Janetter for Mac

Are cows green? WHO CARES! A POLITICIAN SAID THEY WERE, WE’D BETTER TELL ALL THE EVERYONES NAO! Fuck me dead.

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, one-sided heresay is how the press gallery works. “Wayne Swan said cows are green!” Tippity tippity tappity tappity type. GNUS!

via Janetter for Mac

Heh. The ONLY new fact in that @smh yarn is “Fernandez has been contacted for comment,” i.e. status report on the news-gathering process.

via Janetter for Mac

@metarand Thanks very much, Rand, much appreciated.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to metarand

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Also, reporting what people say on Twitter is not “breaking news”. [Yeah, I think they mean “broken news”.]

via Janetter for Mac

In the rush to screech “X said Y on Twitter!”, did we forget that one-sided heresay isn’t quite the same as news, @smh?

via Janetter for Mac

Glad @JezFernandezABC’s story made @smh, but remember when we got protagonists’ comments BEFORE publishing? smh.com.au/nsw/anyone-who…

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis Heh. I’m not sure that @StilCyber works in a tweet-response basis. Mind you, I haven’t looked closely.

@j_hutch @lukehopewell @dobes Referring to people by their surnames was, I think, a middle class thing. Slave to Breeding etc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Quelque chose a tourné mes intestins dans un tunnel de la misère. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Fri plan, draft: Check comms for urgent stuff; schedule all the things; develop some sort of new plan based on those things. Yeah, vague.

via Janetter for Mac

@JezFernandezABC I do hope you got the driver and/or bus number and reported it. I’ve found Sydney Buses quite responsive on other issues.

@j_hutch @lukehopewell @dobes I often see confusion when people dawn that given name = person, surname = family, not Mr surname = person.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@j_hutch @lukehopewell @dobes Heh. Host edge cases aren’t thought about until they’re encountered.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@Davidramli @j_hutch @lukehopewell @dobes “Not having the same ring” is more about individual familiarity with a language pattern.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Davidramli

@j_hutch @lukehopewell @dobes You mean like “President Suharto”? Um, yes. Honorific then person’s name, however constructed.
