johnemcintyre In repentance, I have deleted two “iconics.” In the same story.

johnemcintyre I have allowed a “rain didn’t dampen their spirits” to get past me. Send someone over to rip off my epaulets.

The sense of entitlement runs strong at , @paulwallbank @SnarkyPlatypus, they are the (imagined, self-appointed) elite.

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, rather a nice shot. There’s no photo credit, alas, otherwise I’d hunt for more.

@indolentdandy @thecitizenweb Yeah I’ve noticed that. Drupal seems to require a lot more effort from out-of-box to site-online.

@BXGD @thecitizenweb That’s funny. I’m actually quite a fierce descriptivist. That said, Humpty Dumpty wasn’t right.

@seancarmody But didn’t the Illuminati move to a secret cave under the Antarctic? I wouldn’t know, I’m not a member.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to seancarmody

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, the company needs the dollars. The directors themselves may not have to spend a cent. Or possess ANY skills.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Andrew_Zammit Thanks. And re-reading it now, I am rather pleased with it, especially since it was written in a bit of a rush.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

@Andrew_Zammit Yes, I think @BernardKeane goes too far, but I needed some strong medicine indeed to counter Irvine’s.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Andrew_Zammit

@Colvinius Not so strange, actually: it was @klintron’s post that caused me to post my 1991 yarn.

Here’s the source for ASIO chief’s “single malicious algorithm” line, his speech of 20 Aug 2012. asio.gov.au/Publications/S… HT @SulphurCocky

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve had “company directors” as clients, and a bigger drift of self-important morons I’ve never met.

via Janetter for Mac

“John M Green is a company director, commentator and novelist.” I always love how people boast of being a company director. The elite! Lulz.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on, that “single malicious algorithm” line was from “Australia’s security chief, ASIO head David Irvine”? What the actual fuck?

via Janetter for Mac

Not only “doubt it”, @Andrew_Zammit, that’s complete bullshit. It even fails to know what an “algorithm” is. Is that from @australian?

via Janetter for Mac

Andrew_Zammit “a single malicious algorithm could switch off our lights, stop all planes flying, disrupt whole countries’ financial networks”. Doubt it.

So don’t you have scrolling where you live?

Fuck the Flyover. By the time I’ve showered and shaved and had breakfast and walked into the village, it’ll mostly be over.

“The Prime Minister is in Sydney today and will attend the NSW ALP Candidates’ Seminar,” the poor woman.

Suspecting that holding the Blue Mountains Flyover 1000-1200 is a mistake. Only very early-rising families can make it from the city.

@jperlow @joshgnosis Aw, that’s such a sweet belief… More seriously, there’s a vote-up button but no vote-down, only the “flag”.

@maldamkar Thank you. It was a couple of days in the brewing. Actually, some lines had been saved up for an occasion just like this.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maldamkar

@steffclarke @sebchan I thought it was much older even than that. I apologised yesterday for not checking the date before posting.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to steffclarke

@BXGD Heh. Well, I pointed out it’s in Australian English, not British. And re your previous, yeah, it’s all a spectrum, really.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

Sat plan, draft: Blog post(s); view Blue Mountains Flyover?; lunch Wentworth Falls?; mostly, though, a day of reading and, perhaps, writing.

Also a wonderful comment from Erika White: “Does is bug anyone else that this entire article is written in British English?”
