Actually the pantomime horse is the only creature with an arsehole at each end.

RT @snerdish @stilgherrian who is in which end of the pantomime horse? [The only interesting question IMO.]

via Plume for Android

Oh and I see the Assange Family Players are staging another amateur theatrical. Excellent.

via Plume for Android

It’s a good thing the US has staged an Apple launch as a distraction from the political problems. Well played.

Well that whole sequence of events had a glorious informality in relation to its business… erm, thingy.

I’d forgotten how comprehensively shit this television program is. I am becoming more stupid with every minute.

via Janetter for Mac

They have put that television program on in the front bar. It’s worse than turning off the music and turning up the lights.

via Janetter for Mac

Twitter does seem very quiet on a Monday if you filter out all the TV and sportsball-related tweets.

RT @JohnBirmingham: @stilgherrian @R_Chirgwin long walk for a little bloke [And for a big bloke.]

via Janetter for Mac

Here we go, @R_Chirgwin, for those who don’t know Taiga. “Taiga Goes to the Pub” flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Imagine Taiga converted to a hot water bottle!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

You’d think if Google was paying $1.3 billion for a company they’d at least insist they spell their name properly.

via Janetter for Mac

I do love the fact that the NSA has activity books for kids. Oh, @yinettesys, I have a spare copy earmarked for you.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Me: From my friends at the NSA, for kids everywhere (in America) instagram.com/p/aUDDZciFiz/

RT @gusworldau: @stilgherrian I DARE YOU to try a white wine bolognese. [I am not a complete idiot.]

via Janetter for Mac

That last OH was also from the proponent of deploying snipers. I’m starting to like her, despite her fags-and-bourbon accent.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “How bad was this Bolognese? Did you use red wine? You’ve gotta use red wine.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: @stilgherrian Cyberjeggings. [Well for the cyberladies, obviously.]

via Janetter for Mac

I must remind @dobes at this point of @mikko’s collection of Hackers with Hoodies. pinterest.com/mikkohypponen/…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: my bad, it’s a bubble and they’re all going to physically explode when it bursts. [Yes. Obviously.]

via Janetter for Mac

SnarkyPlatypus Vodka helps decision making.

@glengyron Look, if you don’t mind I’d rather you keep all these so-called “facts” out of the way of my feelpinion.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

RT @cri: Google To Buy Waze For $1.3 Billion cri.ch/p796 [Think of these acquisitions as high-tech musical chairs. Bubble burst.]

via Janetter for Mac

There seems to be a dispute as to whether certain events actually happened or whether it was a TV commercial for beer.

via Janetter for Mac

She’s pretty damn passionate on the subject of snipers. She has the build of someone who might have done a bit of this work.

via Janetter for Mac

An old woman has just complained about traffic on the highway and called for the deployment of snipers. Seems knowledgeable on the topic.

via Janetter for Mac

OH, front bar informal trivia: “What’s the name of Julia Gillard’s dog?” “Bill Shorten!”

via Janetter for Mac

Yep, @semlouise @emmackat, and it’s like that every weekend, not just at the end of a holiday Monday.

via Janetter for Mac

J’ai convoquée le taxi.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Je comprends. Ma vie contient de nombreuses différences. Il arrive. Je hausse les épaules. Pour la plupart.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. La température baisse, et les approches du solstice. Je deviens irrité. La taverne va bientôt résoudre ce problème.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @ivovic: We have one Clive Palmer… this is far and away NOT the only example of public anime pillow love :P [Fair point.]

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @ivovic, I think it’s cruel to pin that bloke’s… erm, personal oddities on an entire nation. We have Clive Palmer, after all.

via Janetter for Mac

ivovic @stilgherrian brought to you by the same nation which brought us this: yeinjee.com/korean-man-mar… pic.twitter.com/UQAUzFO1mi

@skinnyraptor @artywah Yes, I had figured out that was the strategy.

So Samsung actually put, on the Galaxy S4 lock screen, “Life Companion” in cheesy type. Thought I was being trolled. samsung.com/global/microsi…

via Janetter for Mac

@eldonnn It’s a literary reference. For some value of “literary”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to eldonnn

@eldonnn Surely that only works if you’re Chinese. Or a fucking horse.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to eldonnn

Are you a horse? Are you a fucking horse?

Listening to another fine @onthemedia podcast “Surveillance Revelations, Turkish Media Looks Away, and More” onthemedia.org/2013/jun/07/

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose the plus side is that I got a lot of work done. On a long weekend. Y-fucking-ay for me.

via Janetter for Mac

So the weather in the Upper Blue Mountains is running according to forecast, which is cold with dribbly half-arsed rain and annoyingly.

via Janetter for Mac

Shouting at a cache. Which is in a cloud.

via Janetter for Mac

@davidgerard Yes, Sampression Lite looks like an adequate starting-point for the pilot series. How did you de-skeuomorph the paper curls?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to davidgerard

@jodiem @chieftech “SharePoint”? But it’s a podcast, not an internal phone directory and annoying compliance spreadsheets from HR.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jodiem

@chieftech This would be the argument against FOSS then? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chieftech

@nifmoran Bah! @mpesce wouldn’t know “polite” if it scooted out of his arse on razor-wire roller skates!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nifmoran

And no documentation? The CODE is the documentation? No, the point of YOU being the developer is so that I DON’T HAVE TO READ FUCKING CODE.

via Janetter for Mac

Somehow “perpetual beta” mutated from a call for innovation into an excuse for shoving never-finished stuff onto the suffering public.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose this is the never-quite-working future we’ll be stuck with because it MUST be built by a bunch of spoiled ADHD-riddled egomaniacs.

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile, “Shockwave Flash has crashed”, Chrome informs me. Yes of course it fucking has. That’s what it does. Adobe Performance Art CS6.

via Janetter for Mac

Also, lime green a your highlight colour? Make it stop. Lime green is not, has never been, and never will be suitable for polite company.

via Janetter for Mac

“This WordPress theme has 15 different page templates!” Yes, and none of them work properly. How about making just one that fucking works?

via Janetter for Mac

There, @davidgerard @jodiem, my immediately previous tweet summed up the universe of WordPress theme.

via Janetter for Mac

WordPress themes built by developers have too many moving parts and look pig-ugly. Those built by designers look nice but simply don’t work.

via Janetter for Mac

@davidgerard Yes, I’ve chosen a seemingly acceptable starting theme, but I’ve already had to patch it. I’ll hurl myself into a ditch later.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to davidgerard

@johnb78 Perhaps (I don’t know), but WordPress is what I know and I don’t neeant/ wnt to spend more than a day on this.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 True, but there’s also the chicken-egg thing of producing content to flesh out the theme (images etc) before you choose it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 So, thank you for confirming my worst fears before I’ve even begun. I might as well load the gun now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

That WordPress theme selection task would be made easier if I hadn’t maxed out the plastic before the banking system took a 3-day break.

via Janetter for Mac

The hardest part of the website thingy will be selecting a WordPress theme that works without me having to rip huge chunks out of it.

via Janetter for Mac

Mon plan, draft: Finish setting up a website for the SEKRIT podcast, breaking for lunch in a nearby village; plan the rest of the week.

@llament Oh silly me, I muddled my timezones. I’m sure Her Majesty isn’t even up to the fourth nightcap yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to llament

“Happy Birthday, Your Majesty.” That said, I suspect that the Queen is not yet awake. Unless young Harry has been at the pills.
