@skwashd @GreenJ Why can’t the AWU have hookers and Cabcharge vouchers? Disappoint.

@marcfennell @karalee_ Nah, for the punters one big number sounds much like another. I’d just make them up anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

snurb_dot_info Well, fair enough: if anyone knows about being “under-minded”, surely it’s Paul Howes. ?

@ssharwood “It is backed like a weasel…”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

@karalee_ I admit, I’m doing the guesstimates in my head, as taught by an engineer who taught me maths. @TurnbullMalcolm would be horrified.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@karalee_ Good, fun episode though. As always.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

RT @GreenJ: what would the AWU talk about for an entire week? [Hookers and Cabcharge voucher auditing processes.]

via Janetter for Mac

@karalee_ Yeah that figure would have to be total licenses. So computers that CAN run Java rather than DO run. Anyway, warning was made. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@karalee_ That said, the holes in Java keep coming. It should be dropped. Victims wouldn’t know if they hit a website with malicious Java.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@karalee_ The number was for Java licenses installed. Most folks would never actually run anything needing Java. In enterprise, yes.

RT @jonoabroad: @SnarkyPlatypus polygon on polygon action. [Well, you wouldn’t want to be a square.]

via Janetter for Mac

I am also pleased that my editors let me use “social” as a verb in the headline. They’re very modern .

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe I should’ve said “group polygon action”.

via Janetter for Mac

Cool. “Tools to find like-minded individuals for more group polygon fun” survived the editors.

via Janetter for Mac

@ApostrophePong You’re not the first to suggest that Taiga should be animated. I was thinking stills-with-VO style.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

@Wyld Possibly because I have never actually owned, rented or operated a PlayStation ever. Not that it’s about gaming.

@feed_the_chooks Because you think that knowing an obscure band’s first album makes you smarter than an engineer?

There’s nothing wrong with being interested in a new toy, or pondering whether to buy one. But the faux urgency is utterly moronic bullshit.

via Janetter for Mac

IF I DON’T KNOW THE COMPLETE SPECIFICATIONS OF THE NEW TOY WITHIN EIGHT MICROSECONDS THEN I FAIL AS A HUMAN BEING OH FFS GET A FUCKING LIFE.

People complaining about the length of the Sony announcement could, like, do something else and just read the press release later.
