More self-entitled whining, people, that’s what we need! Bring me more whining!

Ah, all the griping about Sydney’s CityRail tonight! It’s just that selfless stoicism that helped us win the war!

RT @bajopants: Already have 24 cat videos! this is awesome, ty guys [“Internet records smashed!” reports Guinness editor.]

via Janetter for Mac

The fantastic thing about Twitter is that you get to despise so many different people from the comfort of your own home. Or basement.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mpesce: Distinction as a Service [Isn’t that the new escort agency?]

via Janetter for Mac

It’s not a bad gig she’s got, that Dame Helen Mirren. Just swanning around like an old queen, and she gets awards for it.

via Janetter for Mac

“Not much shocks you on the gay scene. But seeing Helen Mirren dressed as the Queen cussing and swearing and making you stop your parade.”

via Janetter for Mac

‘She says she used “‘thespian’ words” to tell them to be quiet.’ Uhuh. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-224235…

via Janetter for Mac

“‘Queen’ Helen Mirren scolds drummers”, eh? You don’t see a good scolding that often these days. bbc.co.uk/news/uk-224235…

RT @christopherneal: Anyone can declare whatever they like as “best practice”, that the beauty of it [True. I might have a go then.]

via Janetter for Mac

I agree with @SnarkyPlatypus, this is professional-grade trolling. dailymail.co.uk/femail/article…

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah I don’t recall Facebook ever being granted any statutory authority to declare what constitutes “best practice” in anything.

@scott_thewspot That’s OK, I think most days my very existence upsets @mpesce. And he’s not alone.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scott_thewspot

ikostar John key is lying on TV again. He does that a lot. In fact I don’t think he goes on TV unless he feels he needs to mislead us in some way

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 4:15 PM, May 6th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Well I think that worked.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah OK, @juhasaarinen @dwyer_jason, you win. For now.

RT @ssharwood: “survey reveals data massaged to support issuer’s point of view” is how most of them go, IIRC [Ah, so you got it too? ;)]

via Janetter for Mac

“Survey reveals” is also how all the best PR emails start. Combine this with what I said in the previous tweet for added effect.

via Janetter for Mac

Executives whose PR droids issue a press release with their guy’s “insights” on some tangential news item EVERY FUCKING DAY.

Mon plan: Sort out the mess that is allegedly my plan for May, starting at one end and working steadily until all the bodies are buried.

via Janetter for Mac

Hunter S Thompson never had this problem.

Covered in seeded mustard.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I just noticed I had a “Min plan, draft” earlier and not a “Mon plan”. No wonder everything is confusing.

via Janetter for Mac

@johncarneyau I quite like Adam Curtis’ style, the narrative illustrated with archival footage. That series is his most recent.

RT @expectproblems: You really think she failed? The trolling continues long after her death. [So Any Rand is the USSR’s L Ron Hubbard?]

via Janetter for Mac

Soviet trollbotics.

via Janetter for Mac

Theory: Any Rand was an early, failed Soviet experiment in robotics.

rycrozier Telecoms networks aren’t like bridges and tunnels. They’re organic. Like trees. Or compost.

RT @marshontap: Organic Networks. [Well they’d be fibre all the way, right? Fibre to the Bran!]

via Janetter for Mac

So this Conroy/Turnbull Hangout is two blokes shouting at each other on the internet? Yeah, the internet needs more of that.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: I think @joshgnosis should pull out a kitten and a pistol to shut both of them up. [HOW DARE YOU STEAL MY NEW WEEKLY PODCAST!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: @dannolan @wordsonaplatfrm what is an “actual linux desktop” person? [I think it’s a synonym for “asexual”.]

via Janetter for Mac

I might just have a bit of a cry now and be done with it. it’ll save time later.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jonoabroad: still no larger mobile plans? [Not with Telstra, no. Christ, you don’t want people USING all that bandwidth, it’d collapse!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: The freedom to be shaped or pay excess charges halfway through the month. [Yes, it’s about choice. That’s a choice.]

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes Yeah look when I phone Google they go all scared and hide behind their bean bags and demand free sushi or they won’t come out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes A suggestion for future Hangouts might be for an audio-only stream as well. But them I’m probably the only one who needs it.

via Janetter for Mac

I love how Telstra’s idea of “Super G Liberty”, the name of the top plan, is a chokingly huge 15GB a month. That’s top Freedom right there!

via Janetter for Mac

I can’t watch “Hangout with Turnbull and Conroy on ZDNet” right now zdnet.com/au/hangout-wit… ‘cos it’d max out my mobile data quota. Bonus!

via Janetter for Mac

Still, if you’d like to suggest which of several media-making ideas for me to pursue, do feel free to vote. stilgherrian.com/personal/choos…

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes The internet has been such a mistake. Is there any way we can shut it down?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

And only last night @0x1C predicted that exact thing happen. Gosh, he can foretell the future!

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, so the poll in my post “Choosing my next media directions: you’re doing it, OK?” has been gamed by someone. stilgherrian.com/personal/choos…

Min plan, draft: a morning of dealing with bureaucracies, and an afternoon of writing, interspersed with strangling non-paying clients.

via Plume for Android

@Pozible Why? That’s precisely what a name field should do, rather than impose arbitrary and not legally-supportable restrictions.
