“I know who [Bitcoin inventor] ‘Satoshi Nakamoto’ is, says Ted Nelson”, writes @R_Chirgwin, with my feelpinion. theregister.co.uk/2013/05/19/ted…

Is there any way of deleting iTunes from the iPad? ‘Cos it just suggested Cat Empire.

RT @dahowlett: Stop moaning, grab a few bevvies in the Castro and experience real SF life. [You have a point. I’m too tired tho.]

via Janetter for Mac

Next observation: Mail is iOS loads me settings from Mail for OS X, but not my filters and other rules. That’s a bit shoddy.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeamland Oh for sure, I can’t do a bunch of work without SSH.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

RT @mjec: gnupg is also free [And you’ve just reminded me to sort that crypto shit out, thank you.]

via Janetter for Mac

@Colvinius @domknight “Stabby”? Ah, and I suspect “arsehat” too?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@jeamland Thanks. I (still) use NetNewsWire for OS X. Dropbox I use already, yes. iView is indeed a thing I use (but not from the US).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

Right. 1Password for iOS is $18.99, while the 1Password Reader for Android is free. I get the picture.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll start by going thru my Android device and downloading the equivalents.

via Janetter for Mac

So, NetSuite gave all the media at SuiteWorld an iPad Mini. (Yeah, I know.) So, since I’ve been doing Android, what are the must-haves?

via Janetter for Mac

@Colvinius @domknight Ah, we have never met, and yet you know me so well…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

Colvinius @stilgherrian @domknight I see the milk of human kindness is running as warmly as ever in your veins.

@domknight @Colvinius So people are whinging that their sky-chairs with food and drink service lead to a bit of inconvenience? Diddums.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to domknight

@deejayqf That’s my understanding (and postr-exhaustion memory) from having read all the news stories.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to deejayqf

@deejayqf No, Exetel was a downstream “victim” of the block by AAPT, with customer complaints, at least if I recall correctly.

jstogdill A pox on websites that put each paragraph on a separate page.

@scottcarson1957 Oh cool. Apart from school stuff, I can’t remember my first. Probably some ranty letter to the editor somewhere.

Oh. This red wine has triggered a sneezing fit. Histamines FTL.

via Janetter for Mac

Given that the job of an editor is to edit, I’ve sent my rambling unfocused things to said editor. And opened the wine.

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe they could say stuff like “Getting this new client has got us bleeding from every orifice, and that’s before we start servicing them.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jdub: Then you’ll be all, “Why did the executive have to say ‘moist’?” [At first, yes. And then I’ll phone them as soon as I can.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @zerogeewhiz: We once got a letter from Rockdale Council telling us about exciting changes to our garbage collection. [WTF? Arsehats.]

via Janetter for Mac

One day I’ll read a vendor press release about a new customer or partner, and the quote from the executive will not use “excited”. One day.

via Janetter for Mac

@lewellyn Yeah it’s less than 24 hours until I head to the airport now. But this shouldn’t be my only visit this year.

@juhasaarinen Let’s just nuke the lot of them and give another species a go.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Shaun Micallef voices the Aust Bureau of Stats app, @sylmobile? I should never have introduced him to Supernaut. [Grumbles.]

via Janetter for Mac

People are just stupid, @juhasaarinen. I recommend against them.

via Janetter for Mac

If people are so goddam worried by “spoilers”, why does anyone still stage Shakespeare, read Dickens, or go to see a movie remake? Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

So in theory, the fact that last night’s curry has started to return should mean that the article I’n trying to finish will win a Walkley.

I’m back at the hotel, and it’s just gone 1915 PDT. I’m going to finish this goddam article, despite my lack of focus, and then collapse.

via Janetter for Mac

@lewellyn I won’t be doing anything tonight. Once I’ve filed, I’ll be totally out of energy. I’ll rest and try for an early start tomorrow.

NicholasFryer Just stumbled into a dog show. 2 comps just announced: who looks most like their dog and which can lick owner longest. Not making this up.

@sprawldcity Given their first app was only January, a Census data app, I’m guessing @ABSStats is testing the waters before spending more.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sprawldcity

@sprawldcity @ABSStats That question can be answered by looking at the page. Apple’s App Store is the only link. runthattown.abs.gov.au

I think I might retweet that Bitcoin thing, now that people are awake.

@prestontowers When I checked the numbers years ago, Opera Australia was already subsidised over $100 per seat per performance.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to prestontowers

@piecritic The fact that we joined an illegal land war in Central Asia, killing hundreds of thousands, makes me mad. But hey, priorities. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

Whinging about $100k on Skywhale? Refresh your memory of the money given to Mozart cover bands and Verdi karaoke clubs (Opera Aust).

“Take control of any neighbourhood in Australia”? I do hope no-one at the ABS has read “Ender’s Game”.

@lewellyn I’m currently seeing if seafood and a beer will help me regain the flow I had earlier. It seems to be working.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

@lewellyn No plans yet, but TBH I think that when I eventually finish this goddam article I’m writing I’ll just throw myself into the ocean.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lewellyn

Yay. Flow has been regained.

OK, enough about “Satoshi Nakamoto”, Shinichi Mochizuki and Bitcoin for now. I’ve GOT to get this article written.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeffsonstein Work, yes. I’ll take about 2.5 hours to write, and them I’m loose in San Francisco until late Sunday night. It’ll be terrible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein There is that. ;) Alas, I must stop thinking about that for now, and finish the article I’m commissioned to write.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein People have told me that. “Computer Lib / Dream Machines” was a huge influence on me. And now if he’s right about this? Wow.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

@jeffsonstein Heh. I was wondering when you’d get to the Ted Nelson tweet. ;)

@pblakez @feesable And the hiding is illegal, and if too much goes hidden then The Authorities deploy resources to track it down. [Shrugs.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pblakez

@pblakez @feesable But isn’t tax about where you do business, not which currency transactions are done in?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pblakez

@feesable @pblakez Dollars or Bitcoin, if you don’t account for your cash transactions, The Authorities will still make your life misery.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feesable

@feesable @pblakez Anonymity-thru-crypto appeals to the fight-the-Man teen mentality, but real commerce just wants efficiency.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feesable

Oh OK, so we already have bitpay.com from some PayPal founders. That’ll work. bitpay.com HT @pblakez

via Janetter for Mac

@feesable @pblakez Key factor is a critical mass of users, IMO, business people not geeks. Ease of use leads to that, and a trusted brand?
