@jeamland @Pollytics @ABCFactCheck I don’t even know what a hedonic regression model is, but now I want one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

That said, those who had a go at @ABCFactCheck for agreeing with Rupert because… just ‘cos are utter, utter arsehats. Facts or GTFO.

Meanwhile, @Pollytics is ripping into @ABCFactCheck something fierce, and his points seem quite valid. This won’t end well.

Sometimes knowing the back story is too much information.

Methinks I might head back to @bunjaree, have an early night, and tackle the next little challenge in my world tomorrow.

@arikb @GuardianAus @NewtonMark So these are these “facts” again, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to arikb

Hey guys, apparently Apple is announcing something in a few hours. Has anyone thought of blogging it or giving an opinion of it?

via Janetter for Mac

You know, folks, you can just get on with other stuff while they’re counting those last few votes. It’ll still happen without you.

@NewtonMark @4corners I’ve found there’s a HUGE lack of understanding of data re-identification all over the shop.

I know, @bastardsheep, but my policy is to NEVER retweet a link that goes via Facebook. I refuse to do business with those arseholes.

Nice work, @NSWRFS, that seemed quite quick, bringing those fires under control. Good fortune for the long months ahead.

@thelaughingsub @BundyB I would’ve thought either would have been cited, but no-hyphen seems to win. Don’tcha hate that feeling!

I do so love the Macquarie Online. Worth the annual subscription. macquariedictionary.com.au @thelaughingsub @BundyB

via Janetter for Mac

@thelaughingsub @BundyB So, the Macquarie has “subeditor” without the hyphen, and they’re relatively conservative about such things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to thelaughingsub

@BundyB @thelaughingsub True. But there are places without subeditors, and one momentary slip of attention and you’re an arsehat in public.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

Noticing that I’ve been saved from an embarrassing error by the subeditor. Thank you, @thelaughingsub.

RT @jpwarren: I want to know what I’m supposed to do with all these spare leashes now. [Open a dungeon.]

via Janetter for Mac

Don’t get me started on the “unleash the power” or, conversely, “harness the power” that populate press releases like weevils in a bun.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @paulkidd: That and “going viral”. I’ve been going viral for 30 years and I can’t recommend it. [Well yes, indeed.]

via Janetter for Mac

Or, if you really must add the faux enthusiasm, maybe think of a word other than “embrace” for a change. You’re charging money for it.

via Janetter for Mac

What is it with PR people who insist on saying people “embrace” some new technology. Maybe they just use it because they have to.

If Telstra has started throttling people then can I add a few names to the list?

via Janetter for Mac

Finally filed the @zdnetaustralia column. Today is running very annoyingly behind schedule. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac

@XanderPlooy Ah yes, there is that. Maybe I need to change it to something more sparkly unicorn to improve my mood.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to XanderPlooy

Disgruntled. Today is not following the planned timelines.

via Janetter for Mac

Right, some third-party system mod is fucking up the WindowServer’s operation. Looks like some time to figure out the cause. But not today.
