@juliailse Why thank you. Probably. I’m not sure that I should be encouraged though.

Ah. Open-mic comedy. This is an even more annoying circle of Hell. I should interrogate him about the anchovy situation.

Ah. They have ” entertainment”. I don’t want to. Be “entertained”. I don’t need to be “entertained”. I’m eating my goddam dinner.

You know, folks, it’s pretty bloody obvious when you comment on a tweeted headline without reading the fucking article. Arsehats.

@0xAli Well, there is chicken, but the anchovies are key to the Caesarness, otherwise it’s just a chicken salad. Surely.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to 0xAli

Exactly what sort of heathen misfit makes a Caesar salad without anchovies?

@Timcammm One recent data centre (Google?) was located specifically for nearby nuclear power plant and a river for cooling water. Huge.

via Plume for Android in reply to Timcammm

@Timcammm Consider the data centres are rack upon rack of bays full of high-density hardware, which then has to be kept cool.

via Plume for Android in reply to Timcammm

@Timcammm It’s been a while since I recorded that so I don’t have the direct links handy. Plus I’m out and about. But…

@Timcammm @crikey_news The podcast is actually quite an engaging conversation about energy issues, even if I do say so myself.

It’ll be a quiet dinner somewhere nearby, then an early night of reading for me. Now, what do I feel like? The urge for oysters has passed.

via Janetter for Mac

@SMinney @firstdogonmoon It sounds uncomfortable, so at least $10,000, I’d say.

“Missing out on the rorts? Not now that everyone can play TROUGH!” Yes, a game from @firstdogonmoon! crikey.com.au/2013/10/09/mis…

@SMinney Thank you, though sorry to hear you’ve been ill. Maybe that should be recorded on @firstdogonmoon’s Peccary Interests Register.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SMinney

That’s better. I haven’t written anything, but at least my eyes aren’t threatening to fall out of their sockets.

via Janetter for Mac

Exhausted. Also, tired. I think I shall have a brief rest, and then freshen up for the evening.

via Janetter for Mac

Chilli and coriander. With the oysters, not the blueberries, what, do you think I’m INSANE?

Suddenly, I have a craving for oysters.

@oBleeter Well, the personal budget is not so ripe. I’ll have to figure a way around that.

via Plume for Android in reply to oBleeter

@PointZeroOne Huh? Of course you can round off any number to simplify the story. 9.4% (for example) as “fewer than one in ten”. Problem?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

@oBleeter The power/hold switch on my H4n died the other day, so I can only use it as a USB microphone. The time is ripe.

@PointZeroOne “More like” would depend on how much fewer the “fewer than” was. Rounding, motherfucker, do you speak it?

The cockatoo has retreated to a nearby railway structure and, with yellow crest erect, screeches his territorial call. He’s very annoyed.

Sydney’s forecast for tomorrow is a max of 37C? I can only assume that band of nomad lunatics has taken over the Bureau of Meteorology.
