@karalee_ @michaelneale We all need subeditors (copyeditors for our American friends). It’s sad to see them go…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@karalee_ @michaelneale It’s odd what people end up reacting to. I do like the idea of “imperial evidence” though. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@michaelneale @karalee_ Ah yeah “Streisand effect” may not be the right thing. I gloss over such fine-grained details.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

Thank you, @karalee_, for calling bullshit on this thing in this way. mumbrella.com.au/dumb-ways-to-d…

The publican seems keen to stress the message “Everyone’s a winner here!” as he takes their cash. I’m not so sure.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah I probably shouldn’t be watching this in the company of some old tradies. They are… unimpressed.

RT @gilfer: Why is Alan Jones murdering pensioners and stealing their clothes pegs? [No idea what this means, but people need to know.]

via Janetter for Mac

Well done, @moldor, I’ll put you down as the creator of hipster glue-huffing.

via Janetter for Mac

@kcarruthers Translated, you now have no idea who’s got copies of your data. Well done.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Even by the standards of “reality” TV, the direction decisions in this episode of “The Block” thing are remarkably shit.

via Janetter for Mac

michaelmeloni @stilgherrian Australian kids grew up on eating Clag glue. I’m sure Dick Smith even has his own brand of Dick glue for the kids now days.

RT @bernietb: Don’t do [the ACA liveblog]. Then there will be evidence to prove pre-meditation when you start the murdering. [Oh yeah.]

via Janetter for Mac

So now we have a prime-time TV program about wallpaper paste. This is wonderful.

via Janetter for Mac

Is this legal, Channel Nine?

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, I think quite a lot of things.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I should start liveblogging “A Current Affair”.

via Janetter for Mac

Watching “A Current Affair” and learning all the things.

via Janetter for Mac

Laugh track, studio audience and the “boink” sound. Lovely, @dobes @bernietb @snerdish @alexkidman @TatteredRemnant @chrisjrn

via Janetter for Mac

Nine News and Australia’s Funniest Home Videos, the difference is…?

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Jeez, this calamari is a bit salty!” “Yeah, that’s why it’s called salt’n’pepper squid.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @gnoll110: Tell me again, why petrol/diesel isn’t in the carbon price, while electricity (coal) is? [I dunno. I didn’t do it.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @akent: “Everyone knows that debugging is twice as hard as writing a program in the first place…” tmblr.co/ZRVp_wdubp_K [True.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @timfdavis: we should blockade the central west [Well, only three roads need be blocked…]

via Janetter for Mac

That image really sums up the Blue Mountains: Once pleasant villages obscured by yet another Linfox truck.

via Janetter for Mac

That was an extremely exhausting afternoon. I think I really need a proper meal at the pub rather than my own half-arsed equivalent.

via Janetter for Mac

“I think our minds must be too highly trained, Majikthise.”

via Janetter for Mac

In my defence, I’d like to say that this code has worked just fine for seven years. And at least it’s not Ruby. @dobes

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, using a Perl script to parse a directory structure and auto-generate an httpd.conf AuthConfig section. WHAT WAS I THINKING? @dobes

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Or even better, 4. nuke me from orbit. Please.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes The problem with “just no” is that the alternative is rewriting an entire access control system. Or curling up in a ball and crying.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Returning to Apache AuthConfig Hell.

via Janetter for Mac

It all seemed so terribly clever at the time…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Wyld: Could be worse. Could be sendmail. [What if I tell you the httpd.conf fragment is generated by a Perl script I wrote in 2005?]

via Janetter for Mac

Me at @crikey_news: “Geeks doubt motives of Telstra’s ‘shaping’ trial” crikey.com.au/2013/02/11/gee…

via Janetter for Mac

I’m taking a brief break from Apache AuthConfig Hell to relax, by smashing my own face with a house brick.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @rohan_p: “Abort,retry,fail” should be a keyword though. [Compulsory lifestyle choice, I’d say.]

via Janetter for Mac

Which “genius” decided that “deny,allow” was a keyword, i.e. with a comma in it? I want his or her head on a spike by day’s end!

via Janetter for Mac

Returning to Apache AuthConfig Hell. I may be some time.

Story filed for @crikey_news. A bit of food, now, and then confirming that the day will proceed as planned.

paulwallbank Can someone explain to me how Fairfax writers moving to The Conversation and Guardian is a win for journalistic diversity?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 9:45 AM, Feb 11th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Mon plan: Write for @crikey_news; brunch, here at @bunjaree; yet more client webby things through the afternoon; quiet evening.

QPSmedia 4 horses on Bruce Hwy at Beerburrum. No horsemen spotted, but status of the apocalypse can still not be confirmed at this time.

via Facebook (retweeted on 9:40 AM, Feb 11th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

That last tweet started in the Instagram app with @bunjaree, but by the time it got to Janetter the @ was removed. So who did that?

via Janetter for Mac

@gattaca If only. I’d be spinning that dial as far as it would go…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gattaca

Monday, apparently.
