@zacmartin (That and my budget is tight, unless clients pay their bills before I head to the US on Saturday.)

Your Beerend is a useful project, @zacmartin, but with no permanent base I’ll support it in spirit only for now. pozible.com/project/11432

@jonoabroad I can just use the basic tools in this, for instance. wordpress.org/extend/plugins… Or even just not bother any more.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad But this is not a particularly urgent thing. I may replace it with a list of events I’m at, there’s stuff to do that already.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad No, maps are easy, you turn the list of locations into KML using Google Maps shit. City, arrive and depart times, optional note.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@ThomBus And then there’s @ApostrophePong, whose Thai use-name is ‘Pong, a great test for forms that fail to sanitise input data properly.

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad It’s just a simple list that expires. There’s a widget for displaying tables, I’ll just cron it out of a CSV file or some shit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad My website is made of WordPress, so it has to plug into that. The requirement spec is this image. twitpic.com/co2dc5

Congratulations, @Pozible, on your sign-up form having a “Full name” field that just accepts a string of characters.

via Janetter for Mac

Don’t you try to out-arsehat me, boy. I’m a professional.

via Janetter for Mac

@mongrel43 Look, if you’re going to try that approach then clearly I need to also write my own HTTP server in Ada.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mongrel43

@indigoid @adm_76 Yeah I’m magnificently unimpressed with @TripIt, and yet this is supposedly help us as a success story.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to indigoid

RT @Asher_Wolf: Bourke St Mall, Melbourne being evacuated due to bomb threat according to reports. [Another happy @TripIt user?]

via Janetter for Mac

I can see me having to write my own damn WordPress widget to do this. And I’ve been avoiding learning how to do that for years.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. @TripIt is useless. No apparent concept of “trips” being chains of transport links with stops. “Plans” come from itineraries, not me.

via Janetter for Mac

And now @TripIt is offering to show me a video that contains animated leprechauns, or some shit.

via Janetter for Mac

I think the problem is that, conceptually, @TripIt doesn’t log trips, but destinations. If they have airports and hotels. I’m crying now.

via Janetter for Mac

So I merge the Katoomba-Sydney trip with the Sydney-SFO trip, and the Katoomba-Sydney part vanishes. That was helpful, @TripIt.

via Janetter for Mac

Because I am going from the Blue Mountains to Sydney, @TripIt has suggested flights from Canberra to Sydney. Because obviously.

via Janetter for Mac

“We’ve sent an email with a verification link,” says @TripIt for Android, even though I used my password to log in. No email here yet tho.

via Janetter for Mac

@semiboganman Sure, Hack and Background Briefing are very different beasts. But surely in 2013 they’d have learned from previous stories?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

So @TripIt knows where Wentworth Falls IS, it just insists I choose a different nearby town. This makes no sense. twitpic.com/co1v2e

via Janetter for Mac

Ah that’s right. TripIt doesn’t know about Wentworth Falls (because it doesn’t have an airport?). It’s very aviation-centric.

via Janetter for Mac

@docbaty That’s quite right, Steve. The future is advertising. Mad Men is part of a long propaganda strategy to reduce our hate of ad men.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to docbaty

@ClaudiaHayworth Nah, that’s just an echo of the factory-employee media workers thinking that’s the only kind of media there is. Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClaudiaHayworth

@timfdavis Well, I’m a tad rusty at all that. So I suppose that makes me a project manager. I need to find some rootable dev geek…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

I assume people have noticed that “social” is about machines reading all your stuff? You can still be completely social without “social”.

via Janetter for Mac

@timfdavis I didn’t use ANY of the “social” stuff in Dopplr. It was just a handy way to manage a list, count miles & carbon, and draw a map.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@timfdavis Yeah Nokia didn’t really understand what the internet was back then, so they were too busy losing half a billion Euros.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

@timfdavis Ah no, as I said in the next tweet. TripIt is WAY too much ugliness and overhead for a simple list of towns that auto-expires.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

If you’re at a loose end, all four of the radio spots I did this week are now on my website, under “Conversations”. stilgherrian.com/category/conve…

via Janetter for Mac

So, WordPress plugin to do a simple “here’s where I’ll be when” itinerary like Dopplr. Any suggestions? Not TripIt. twitpic.com/co1nsx

via Janetter for Mac

Dopplr steadily collapses. “Sorry, we couldn’t add those trips: We can’t find a city called ‘Sydney, Australia’.”

via Janetter for Mac

@kimogrady1 Thank you. I must admit, I was surprised that @triplejHack seemed so behind the pace on understanding hacktivism’s subtleties.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

New blog post: “Talking LulzSec and hacktivism on @triplejHack”, and why the program frustrated me. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

RT @juhasaarinen: Bitdefender blocks arseh.at URLs. [LOL! I know people there, I’ll email them to complain, or something.] @thepatus

via Janetter for Mac

@lewellyn Well, something might be possible on the weekend of 17 to 19, but I haven’t worked through all the planning yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

Sat plan: Sloth and read, pretty much. And do a bit of tidying.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, toute l’action se déroule sur la planète.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@lewellyn Which two days? There are certain traditions to uphold.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis étant contrôlé par le temps lui-même. Je blâme le passé. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Good God, they have THREE dress rehearsals for the Eurovision Grand Final? eurovision.tv/page/malmo-201…

via Janetter for Mac

So, 2100 on 18/5 in Malmö is midday 18/5 PDT in SFO and 0500 on Sun 19/5 in SYD. @SnarkyPlatypus @R_BurtonBradley
