RT @juhasaarinen: @joshgnosis Cheap, good enough, enormous reach… [Yeah I know that brothel too.]

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @joshgnosis @juhasaarinen Anyway, who needs digital radio with 128kbps audio streams on mobile internets?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

For those catching up to this century, compare the meanings of “cybernetics” and “robotics”.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen @BernardKeane Hey don’t drag us into @jonaholmesMW’s cyber-robot fantasies!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@joshgnosis @R_Chirgwin Yep, digital radio has always been an answer in search of a question. Like AM Stereo.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@jasonjordan I’m afraid to say I have no idea what the reference is.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jasonjordan

If I were a cyber-robot I could steer-drive my auto-car to the pharma-chemist to buy some medico-drugs.

RT @BernardKeane: I wish I was a “cyber-robot”. [Don’t we all, Bernard, don’t we all.]

@R_Chirgwin One-hour generator run ended, battery at 49.6V. I’m retiring for the night, so I’ll leave you to pass on any instructions.

A “cyber robot”, @jonaholmesMW? As opposed to… the other kind? Ahem! [Yes, I’m catching up.]

YOU’D BETTER STOP YOUR NAUGHTY NUCLEARS, NORTH KOREA, OR BOB CARR WILL CONDEMN YOU AGAIN!

via Janetter for Mac

Goodness me, Bob Carr has condemned the North Korean nuclear test, so they must be quaking in their boots in Pyongyang.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Contact made, Jim just arrived, will call you shortly.

via Plume for Android in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin At 1840 AEDT we’re at 47.6V on the battery. I’ll run the generator for an hour but there’s little petrol after that.

@Aitch_El Gosh, I wonder if I can tell the difference?

greymatter78 I used to worry I followed too many cute geek girls on Twitter. Then I remembered I’m reading their tweets, not going through their trash.

@juhasaarinen @mpesce “Pendant”? So how’s it hanging? @ididlatin

I just abandoned any hint of a plan to get to NICTA Techfest in Canberra tomorrow. I support the move tho. Getting pollies onside is vital.

One more, then shopping.

JUST IMAGINE MICHELLE GRATTAN HAVING SEX WITH KIM JONG-UN AND A PIG AND TRY TO GET THAT IMAGE OUT OF YOUR HEAD.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mpesce: I guess the only real question is does this one involve pig f**king? [Adobe? Grattan? North Korea? All of them?]

via Janetter for Mac

If Fairfax plays this right, the departure of “senior” “political” “journalists” could be spun into a real strength. Bet they fuck it up.

via Janetter for Mac

“Kevin Rudd has elevated the temperature surrounding Labor’s leadership,” begins The Grattan, without citing units of measurement. Fuck off.

via Janetter for Mac

And when you’re delivering finished images, @missayme @NickEvershed. what does “industry standard” mean, exactly?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to missayme

Oh FFS! I thought the Grattan-on-Rudd-comeback tweets were joking, but no. This bullshit is real. theconversation.edu.au/rudd-puts-gill…

Actually, forget “Fail-Safe”. Make it FOUR grams of speed and “Threads” on repeat for six days! And here it is! youtube.com/watch?v=_MCbTv…

So folks know that Photoshop isn’t the only image editing software on the planet, right?

“She’s used a fair bit of petrol,” says the race-caller of a… greyhound. OK then.

Tim_Beshara Media diversity is great. NewsLtd, Fairfax & now the Conversation & Guardian. Four different ways to read about KRudd leadership tensions.

@derekbradley Yeah it’s just a nuke going off. A pissy little one. These kids need to get a sense of perspective.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

Look, the only rational response to today’s news is to plug two grams of speed and watch “Fail-Safe” on repeat for the next six days.

Someone else has emailed me some rubbish about a “cloud hub”. The WHOLE POINT of “cloud” is not having “hubs”, FFS!

via Janetter for Mac

Getting sick of people emailing me to ask me stuff that’s on my website. HAVEN’T YOU HEARD OF THE INTERNET?

@marcfennell That’s so sweet. Yes, you can duck and cover if you like.

I refer to “Woodside gas deal could redraw Australia-East Timor borders” at @crikey_news crikey.com.au/2013/02/12/woo…

via Janetter for Mac

So Australia withdrew from the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea before negotiating boundaries with East Timor? Well aren’t we cunts!

@R_Chirgwin A 2-hour generator run has returned the battery to 49.2V at 1300 AEDT. Lunch, then we’ll see what the charge rate is today.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Thank you. I shall refrain from stabbing anyone for the time being.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @michaelneale: batteries, how do they work, you can’t explain that. [No. I can’t.]

via Janetter for Mac

Amused that I can lose 240V while working and not notice for half an hour.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Yes, an actual blackout. Duration unknown, though the MacBook Pro’s battery will take 30 mins to fill again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin No, he should keep an eye out for me. I am gathering the knives… [There’s no sign of life today.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Battery at 42.8V, generator started 1055 AEDT. Half a tank of petrol, none left in any jerry cans. I’ll run for two hours now.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look, @bunjaree has run out of electricity. I’ll just pop down to make some.

I suppose they were always protected by the sweet, gentle, nurturing souls of their subeditors. Oh wait.

It’s like they’re on a new planet, “OH THIS IS SO TERRIBLE SOMEONE SAID SOMETHING I DON’T LIKE.” Yeah, guys, we face that every day.

Is it just my perception, or do workers at Big Media Companies make more of a Big Deal about blocking someone than the rest of us schmucks?

Tue plan: Various urgent client webby tasks; lunch (where?); catch-up planning and blogging; let the stupid people live one more day.

via Janetter for Mac

What marks you as intelligent is taking an unrelated event elsewhere on the planet and making it about Aust party politics. Actually, no.

via Janetter for Mac

Tue plan, draft: Plod through the backlog of annoying client webby tasks, generally without killing anyone; something different from that.

It would appear that @kcarruthers 1. had a Yahoo! email account 2. has had it compromised. Whacko.

@terrymarc You’re falling for the trap of assuming that what you find important knowledge others do too. It’s much more diverse than that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to terrymarc

@terrymarc Well of course there are people “out there” who don’t even know the basics. They were possibly too busy just surviving.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to terrymarc

@terrymarc Perhaps you could regale us with your standard 5000-word presentation on the life and work of Charles Darwin, from memory.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to terrymarc

@terrymarc So you’d be confusing curiosity with ignorance. Or do you think everyone knows everything to know about Charles Darwin?

Here’s a link, for those curious about Charles Darwin but too sodding lazy to copy his name into a search box. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_D…
