Who gets a fucking latte at a Lebanese restaurant? Arsehats.

RT @jeamland Hello, SYD! [So where are we drinking?]

OH: “… and then I was knocking back bourbons like crazy. Angela thought it would be really dangerous.”

via Plume for Android

OH: “… like he’s really cool, you wouldn’t get robbed or anything.”

via Plume for Android

Well this is all going quite well. Considering.

Essentially, @jplonie, we are all prisoners in John Howard’s cellar.

via Plume for Android

He had exactly as many apples as he had light bulbs. There’s a message in that for all of us.

via Plume for Android

I think he is keeping someone prisoner in his cellar.

via Plume for Android

An awkward man in a torn brown leather jacket carries a shopping bag with 40W bulbs, apples, and a book about Nazi propaganda.

via Plume for Android

Look it’s all going fabulously and nobody has been stabbed.

What’s the acceptable nomenclature for a group of overweight Cantonese artfags gawking at the trinkets?

via Plume for Android

@juhasaarinen Oh, wish I’d realised. I’ve been in Sydney all week.

via Plume for Android in reply to juhasaarinen

How come they let stupid people drive on the public roads?

via Plume for Android

Mobile: From Lilyfield to somewhere closer to the CBD, and thence to lunch.

via Plume for Android

Well, there’s tequila.

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Microsoft sucked into ever-growing NSA vortex: who’s next?” Contains drug references. zdnet.com/microsoft-suck…

@SnarkyPlatypus Oui, j’ai relié les objets du désir via les méthodes nébuleuses. Il fait partie du changement.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@oberonsghost Indeed. I do like it when @stubbornmule explores some statistical linguistics.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis impatient à un après-midi ensoleillé. Mais mon épaule me fait mal. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“How common are common words?” asks @stubbornmule, comparing “asshole” and “arsehole”. stubbornmule.net/2013/07/how-co…

Sat plan: Organise clouds, client webby work (both done); washing; shopping; depart Lilyfield; 1400 long lunch, maybe into Saturday evening.

via Janetter for Mac

I think I have put too many things into this cloud all at once.

via Janetter for Mac

@GenerallyInept Ah right, yes, optimised for different applications. But there still seems a LOT of different ones.

via Janetter for Mac

@justjjoke Hah! That’s not quite the answer I was expecting, but biologically accurate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to justjjoke

@mogadeet Well, it’s not something I’d ramp up an argument about. People are entitled to their own view of what risks are acceptable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet “Mind closed” and the phrase “mount a defence” sound like hard work. But I can probably do a few pars on it some time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

“iPeriod Ultimate for iPad”? Jesus, stay away from that girl on Certain Days.

via Janetter for Mac

Also, just how many different menstruation calendar apps does iOS need? Ladies, can you help me here?

via Janetter for Mac

My next question is “Why does Apple’s pig-ugly calendar app in iOS not let you start the week on a Monday?” Fucktards.

via Janetter for Mac

Finally, 24 hours later, I’ve archived 12 years of calendar data, and synced the rest from MacBook Pro to FondleSlab Mini via a cloud.

via Janetter for Mac

@mogadeet Overall, your plan holds much merit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet Indeed, I’ll leave my critique of the control-all-the-things-personally strategy to another time. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet I think the main problem is just not enough sleep full stop. But that is changing.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

In fact, I think I just did something inconvenient with a cloud.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan, draft: Organise clouds; client webby work; washing; shopping; depart Lilyfield; late and long lunch; Saturday evening in Sydney.

via Janetter for Mac

@AdrianOHara I couldn’t tell you. I’m in Sydney.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdrianOHara

@AdrianOHara I wouldn’t mind being stabbed in that way. It’d mean I was probably Prime Minister at some point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AdrianOHara

Good morning, Saturday. Why does my shoulder hurt?

via Janetter for Mac

@mogadeet @petercoffee @franksting So this would now be the third time I’m saying I haven’t read the article. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet @petercoffee @franksting But, I have other things on my mind right now, so my thoughts on that can some another time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet @petercoffee @franksting A familiar argument. But not-100% control is not the same as 0% control. Division of labour etc.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet @petercoffee @franksting I think you’re assuming certain architectures for “cloud”, but I haven’t read the article yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@petercoffee I’ll read the diginomica piece on the train on Sunday, and pimp it during a sensible Australian time. My sleep patterns… :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petercoffee

It’s a great brain-dump of your current thoughts, @petercoffee. Should have the podcast up by Tuesday, Sydney time. @franksting

via Janetter for Mac in reply to petercoffee

@franksting Exactly. Microsoft continues to be a rag-bag of products heading in a direction of some rough description.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting I’m currently editing an interview with Salesforce.com’s @petercoffee that DOES contain some insight. Nice contrast.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting That memo just confirms my impression that Steve Ballmer is an arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting No, I have not. I suppose I had better read the damn thing. This is the one? “One Microsoft”? microsoft.com/en-us/news/Pre…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@mogadeet The fact that NSA matters get a look-in on a comedy-news panel show is, in general, a good thing I think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@mogadeet Hey, it’s a lightweight program. But yes, I do get paid an appearance fee.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mogadeet

@franksting Neither for me, usually. But they’ve just joined the loyalty scheme I use, so I get Certain Benefits there now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting Rydges isn’t so bad a hotel brand. I’ve stayed at a lot worse.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting Yeah it’s pretty special, isn’t it! Kinda detracts from the brand.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

Here’s me, “Talking NSA and spying on The Project”, from Monday night’s TV. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

Since my op-ed for @zdnetaustralia has probably been held over, I might as well re-pimo some of the other stuff I’ve pumped out this week.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @ClintonDucas @RobWauters. The process has begun, which means there’s starting to be some structure to the chaos.
