Watching “Hardcore Pawn” on 7mate. Because… yeah let’s not go into that.

via Janetter for Mac

Grammar. Fuck you all.

via Janetter for Mac

Eating what the barmen “reliably” informs me is “barramundi from Dubbo”.

via Janetter for Mac

Don’t say “punch”. You’ll get banned.

via Janetter for Mac

@ClaudiaHayworth I’m sure I have no idea what you mean. Oh dear.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClaudiaHayworth

@engin_eer @S7U Don’t worry, I’ll have words with @marcfennell next time we catch up. There are limits.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to engin_eer

S7U Look @marcfennell’s selfies have gone too far. Next he’ll be putting his donk in your plonk. pic.twitter.com/lcVv4RQ5QG

@alexkidman Yeah, I tweeted before @R_Chirgwin set the sub-$100 budget. And you’re the expert at this stuff.

Wow, One Nation’s poster-girl candidate isn’t the brightest crayon in the box, is she? au.news.yahoo.com/video/national… HT @petertaggart via @mwyres

The Prime Minister will be on @abc730, apparently. I have just received an alert.

RT @techAU: Robert Scoble loves Australia, hitting the town with Kogan - bit.ly/15N5GjA [Here’s a revolver. You know what to do.]

HannahDeMilta Have any snaps to contribute to my new Tumblr? “Australians Taking Pictures of Squirrels Abroad” bit.ly/15N4755

At the risk of sounding repetitive, the new Corrupted Nerds podcast was a damn fascinating conversation. corruptednerds.com/pod/c00003/

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Go a tablet, surely? More versatile device.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

OH, punter noticing Big Brother on the front bar TV: “What’s this shit? Put Cops on, at least that’s educational.”

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @purserj, I’ll load my stuff into @StitcherRadio when I get some free time.

via Janetter for Mac

Apart from @blubrry, what other podcast directories are worth the effort these days?

via Janetter for Mac

Submitting the Corrupted Nerds podcast feeds to Apple iTunes Store. It all goes smoothly, but I’ve done it a few times before.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “I mean, I don’t expect here to wiggle or anything, but she just sits there! She doesn’t move at all, not even the littlest bit.”

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “What’s wrong with that Tracy Grimshaw woman? She doesn’t move! Is she glued there or something?”

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, @ohsnapthread, because computers can’t change the case of letters. WT actual F?

via Janetter for Mac

@shrydar @madpilot Hah! Good luck with that. It probably goes back to the 1950s or maybe even earlier.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shrydar

@0x1C That’s not a bad thought. But I think they’re hoping we’ve all forgotten that part. Sigh.

Here’s @dobes’ version of that Queensland government / IBM story. zdnet.com/queensland-loc…

via Janetter for Mac

Gosh. Queensland Premier bans IBM from all new government work until they sort out their contracts governance. itnews.com.au/News/352669,ql…

@timhollo Oh nothing so grand! Actually, no suggestions at all yet. I’m just collecting the data points. “Slow news”, Sir!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timhollo

@purserj There is, below the embedded audio on each podcast page. I’ve only just finished debugging, so I’ll clean that up very soon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@timhollo That’s not what I’m testing. Well, “testing” is too strong a word.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timhollo

And I’m still laughing about it. Such arsehattery. Such mealy-mouthed spinelessness.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Gin_ev_ra: Are you still confident Coalition & Greens haven’t blacklisted you? (joke) [Oh I’m blacklisted but not by a political party.]

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s the Deloitte survey from which that Irish cybercrime impact figure was sourced. deloitte.com/view/en_IE/ie/…

via Janetter for Mac

Three days in, campaign emails received so far: Labor 117; Coalition nil; Greens nil; ISOC-AU 1. That is all.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BrianHonan: Cyber crime costs Irish firms 2.7% of turnover irishtimes.com/business/secto… [So like the McAfee research, at “shrinkage” levels.]

via Janetter for Mac

Exactly that, @McDermie. I have indeed abandoned Gartner’s form. I’ll deal with it manually and loudly on the day.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @McDermie: Always blank looks when I say to customers that making fields mandatory means people will just not fill in their form at all.

via Janetter for Mac

Whenever I see restrictions like that, I think “So don’t your developers know how to encode data inputs properly”?

via Janetter for Mac

And then Gartner delivers icing on the cake. Are we sure this is 2013? twitpic.com/d6x7g0

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, Gartner, it’s just so welcoming… not. twitpic.com/d6x741

I wonder whether @blubrry RawVoice Certified analytics will play nice with @CloudFlare.

via Janetter for Mac

The creators of Blubrry podcasting stuff for WordPress have launched RawVoice Certified validated audience metrics. create.blubrry.com/resources/podc…

via Janetter for Mac

@IFR2013 Also, the website doesn’t have the right HTML headers to automatically link the RSS XML feed into many RSS reader apps.

via Janetter for Mac

Erm “navy.gov.au wants to use your computer’s location”? Why is that, @IFR2013? Seems a tad… intrusive.

via Janetter for Mac

There’ll be an International Fleet Review on Sydney Harbour, 3 to 11 October. navy.gov.au/ifr/

via Janetter for Mac

It’s Royal Australian Navy’s centenary year. Here’s a preview of one part of the celebrations. news.navy.gov.au/en/Aug2013/Eve… news.navy.gov.au/images/cache/7…

But surely, @jplonie @jasonjordan, there must be some sort of limit on how many dead dogs you can dispose of this way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

RT @jplonie: FYI. Councils will remove dead dogs if you ring them. [Do they ask questions?]

via Janetter for Mac

Re-plug: New Corrupted Nerds podcast, in which @petercoffee explains why everything will end up in the cloud. corruptednerds.com/pod/c00003/

@gvandersee Yes, Springwood NSW. Default values, etc.

MsLeila Mum has decided she’s moving to Perth after developing a bit of a crush on Scott Ludlam. ‘I like his words, Leila’. Bless.

Anyone good at blogging able to be on a panel about blogging for business tonight 6pm at Springwood? They’ve had a last-minute cancellation.

HLMenckenBot Constructive criticism irritates me. I don’t object to being denounced, but I can’t abide being school-mastered by men I regard as imbeciles

via MenckenBot (retweeted on 12:27 PM, Aug 7th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@MadLid @franksting Oh ta for that, I’ll read it properly when my bran can work through the weirdnesses.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MadLid

So, this day of writing? Well, it’s 1130 and I haven’t started any writing yet. Because reasons. [Mashes face into keyboard.]

via Janetter for Mac

@marshontap You are most kind. But yes, the @petercoffee conversation is seriously interesting.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marshontap

@MULX No Facebook in here, but I think it’s certain JS not playing nice with certain defensive software. Oh well, I have a workaround.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MULX

RT @StatNerdery: Expecting two pieces of software written by large teams to play nice together is just silly. [This is also true.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @franksting: There are no bugs in chrome. Just unimplemented features. [Sorry, yes, you are quite right.]

via Janetter for Mac

So I’ll just be leaving the JavaScript console open at the bottom of the screen while I do this, OK? Fuck, the internet is a piece of shit.

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHAHA! It’s a bug in Chrome! This particular WordPress feature doesn’t work, until you open the JavaScript Console, then it does.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yes, opening the JavaScript Console, that scared the shit out of you, didn’t it! Decided to work now, have you? Good.

via Janetter for Mac

Bugger. I’ve broken my cloud.

via Janetter for Mac

That’s all rather scary stuff, @gusworldau @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Janetter for Mac

Recently @gusworldau asked “Can You Live On A McDonald’s Wage In Australia?” compared with US figures. lifehacker.com.au/2013/07/can-yo…

@jonoabroad Using RAAF aircraft for journos to tail the PM’s RAAF plane is normal. Far more flexible, easier to keep journos in the dark.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

Fucking JavaScript.

via Janetter for Mac

@eztephen I know about such jokes, and tend to agree.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to eztephen

@madman_42 Just to be clear, I’m not in the C-17. That’s just the pack following the PM. Maybe there’s some other shit in that plane.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to madman_42

RT @sciam: Threats to Sharks Destabilize Entire Ecosystems bit.ly/13ZZMYg [So never threaten a shark, boys and girls.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @PeteDotAscian: Buses are for us peasants. Never piss off the media during an election. [They’re always pissed off in election campaign.]

via Janetter for Mac

@aBleeter @LaTrioli Vote Compass’ sound good, but whenever a data set exists there’s always the temptation to capitalise on it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aBleeter

Somehow I feel that transporting a bunch of journalists in a C-17 indicates some sort of shortage of something somewhere. We have buses.
