Anyway, that’s enough Thursday.

RT @sylmobile: How do you digitise photos from negatives? [With a scanner with a backlight for that purpose. Just look in the feature list.]

@johnthelutheran If I had a horse, I would paint a QR code on the side of it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnthelutheran

Anyway, I should never look at new products after sunset, because they just confuse me and I’ll get cranky.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, each playing card is a promoted app to download. With QR codes. They’re still a thing? instagram.com/p/cL99u8CFoE/

Nokia Lumia 625, because I’ll deal with that in the morning. It looks alien. instagram.com/p/cL9nuLCFnz/

Nokia playing cards, because, um, Windows is a gamble? (Hey, I didn’t design this messaging!) instagram.com/p/cL9V-1CFno/

@BruceHallas True enough. But my new plan is to deal with one catastrophe at a time.

via Plume for Android in reply to BruceHallas

Well that would’ve all gone more smoothly if I’d have charged the phone. Battery life problems will be the death of our civilisation.

Given all the shots about to appear, I’ll do some reference images on a Samsung Galaxy S III. ‘Cos I haven’t unwrapped it yet.

via Plume for Android

@WP_DownUnder Oops, missed the timing on the Q&A. I’ll try to find that out shortly.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to WP_DownUnder

Not sure what led, but they’re closing by pimping turn by turn navigation, MS Office and the music service.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Like the LG, this new Nokia shoots a bunch of frames, choose best shot. This is 10, was LG’s 6 frames?.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Arrived late, with @alexkidman in hand. So to speak. The presentation has already started.

via Tweetbot for iOS

I hope Nokia has tested the 4G reception. Walsh bay is notorious for being in the shadow of that sandstone cliff.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@franksting @cjlambert I truly have no idea what you’re talking about.

via Plume for Android in reply to franksting

En route to the Nokia launch at Walsh Bay.

Has someone told Tony that you don’t turn back boats with “protocols”, but demanding, dangerous hands-on work in the middle of the ocean?

via Janetter for Mac

I must also warn @ApostrophePong about the galah plague of Boulia, Queensland. abc.net.au/news/2013-07-2…

For reasons I can’t explain, I just stumbled across my 2007 essay “Stay alert, ye nameless, toiling animals” stilgherrian.com/politics/stay_…

@jturner_ibrs Somehow, the nation will have to survive without my wisdom today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jturner_ibrs

I sounds like @jturner_ibrs is at a thing that I should be at. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s a website for it. sysadminday.com But seriously, the LAST thing sysadmins need is more cake, ice-cream and pizza.

via Janetter for Mac

And no graceful power-down shit either, folks. Just yank that power cable straight out of the socket. Or use a meat cleaver on it.

via Janetter for Mac

Tomorrow 26 July is “SysAdmin Day 2013”? Excellent, guys and gals! At midday, turn OFF every machine you manage. No taking for granted!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: @dananimal square screens are in this season. rectangles are out. [Yeah, Henri Cartier-Bresson was on and on and on about it.]

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @dananimal Not if you shove it in sideways. No imagination, these people.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

I have no idea what the actual fuck I’m commenting on. But, I strongly suspect, neither do the participants. So childish. So tedious.

via Janetter for Mac

The problem when people think they’re “entitled” to something, they don’t appreciate it or take proper care of it. It’s a lack of respect.

via Janetter for Mac

“As a consumer, taxpayer and journo I’m entitled to an opinion.” Entitled. There’s a word. Is it 1/3 of an opinion per, or different maths?

via Janetter for Mac

Heh. “Diaspora communities and their influencers”, eh? Now there’s a phrase that doesn’t come cheap.

via Janetter for Mac

Has anyone on the Coalition front bench ever, you know, read a book about battleships, or watched “Hogan’s Heroes” or something? Anything?

via Janetter for Mac

A shame we got rid of the F-111s, they could’ve dropped copies of the Herald-Sun into those Indonesian transit camps.

via Janetter for Mac

So yeah, tweets are always perfect.

via Janetter for Mac

There must be some mistake. Actual media wouldn’t just make up stuff about the Chief of the Defence Force, surely? They’re professionals.

via Janetter for Mac

DavidHurley_CDF Contrary to media reporting I have not provided advice or recommendations to the Coalition on asylum seeker issues.

RT @smperris: ‘Police appeal’? This object makes law enforcers more attractive does it? [So like tequila shots, in my experience.]

via Janetter for Mac

Good advice there, Assistant Commissioner.

via Janetter for Mac

“Assistant Commissioner Dein says he is keeping an open mind and it’s important not to jump to conclusions.”

via Janetter for Mac

More details? “Police appeal after object found at Campsie Police Station” police.nsw.gov.au/news/media_rel…

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently an object was found recently at Campsie Police Station.

RT @ssharwood: an eight legged sea creature, excellent grilled with garlic and a squeeze of lemon [Excellent, where do I sign up?]

What’s “Optus”?

@michaelneale That makes sense. It would fit what I thought I heard, and the tone. Oh well, onto the next adventure…

via Plume for Android in reply to michaelneale

I was paying attention elsewhere, so I surely heard it wrong. And yet it’s creeping me somewhat. Weird.

via Plume for Android

I can’t have heard that right.

via Plume for Android

OH, man to young children: “You know we’re not allowed to talk in public places about people being kidnapped.” OK, then.

RT @SBSNews: Clive Palmer’s dinosaur park plans get tick of approval sbs.com.au/news/article/1… [Oh thank God, I was so worried!]

In further news, the Attorney-General lists 96 objects found at building sites that can be used to bash people to death.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, if you don’t ALREADY know you can make a bomb out of ordinary household chemicals, it just means that you failed chemistry.

via Janetter for Mac

It is inevitable that today the Attorney-General will say the Boston bombings are proof that we must all have chemical sensors up our quoits

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently there are 96 chemicals. They have a website. “Many household chemicals can be used to build a bomb.” chemicalsecurity.gov.au

via Janetter for Mac

Is there a particular reason that the Attorney-General wants us to be afraid of chemicals TODAY?

via Janetter for Mac

Also today, the Attorney-General will cause 18 explosions to prove that chemicals are dangerous, any anyone who asks for them is terrorism.

via Janetter for Mac

“I have, Muriel. I have.”

via Janetter for Mac

“Have you ever wondered, Joyce, about the kind of people who’d be in a club together, whichever club, and choose to do that to people?”

via Janetter for Mac

“I know, Muriel. By the way, did you see how that Mr Rudd has found a way to be even more of a cunt than run concentration camps? So sweet.”

via Janetter for Mac

“Um, but Muriel, isn’t it the THIRD word that’s meant to be the two-syllable one? ‘Dum. Dum. Dah-DUM’?” “I know, Joyce, but it’s a start.”

via Janetter for Mac

“Goodness, Muriel! Did it have a three-word slogan?” “It did, Joyce. ‘Engage. Know. Choose.’”

via Janetter for Mac

“Hi Muriel, how’s your day?” “Well, Joyce, after feeding the cat, I went on the internet and engaged positively.” Yes, that’s how we speak.

via Janetter for Mac

This morning Senator @KateLundy and The ACMA launch the Digital Citizens Guide to “positive online engagement”. Gosh. cybersmart.gov.au/digitalcitizens

via Janetter for Mac

If it’s OK by you folks, I’ll just say a general “thank you” to everyone for all the various messages and replies. They’re appreciated.

via Janetter for Mac

According to my telephone, Telstra now has 4G at Wentworth Falls.
