@semibogan “Special PDF”? Well, yes, we have to confirm that the new email password works.

If anyone wants a really strong password to use for their email, let me know and I’ll generate one for you.

“An overwhelming number of people took the concept of a password hint too literally, and flat-out provided the password itself as the hint.”

“The most popular password, chosen by almost two million Adobe users, is 123456”, writes @gcluley grahamcluley.com/2013/11/top-50…

Yes, @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank, I let the “roo farmers” part through to the keeper. People are having enough trouble with the horse.

Look, @rashasman @halans, any business called “Mondo di Carne” is automatically a win!

@wendy_harmer @PSyvret Ah well, it’s the flip side of having this weird word-making job, right? Drink up and smile!

RT @halans: @stilgherrian hey, I like a horse steak! Juicy! [I’d like to try it some time. Not available here, I assume?]

via Janetter for Mac

@wendy_harmer @PSyvret I suspect you’ll get hate mail for the rest of your life for that one. Well played though.

@p0ndera Clearly I would never make such an argument.

@wendy_harmer @PSyvret Oh yes! Having grown up on a farm with farm dogs too, I can relate to that. I shall re-pimp immediately!

RT @alexkidman: So you’re advocating for an all-greyhound self-feeding cannibal economy, then? [ISN’T IT THE OBVIOUS SOLUTION?]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @michaelneale: @stilgherrian it’s a dangerous gateway towards vegetarianism. [And lesbianism. No wait. This is confusing.]

via Janetter for Mac

I love how the racehorse-dogmeat equation is only ever a critique of horse racing and not urban dog ownership.

@elronxenu @yinettesys So I just found myself trying to improve on that regexp. Send help.

Wait. What if Rebekah Brooks was INSIDE THE HORSE?

via Janetter for Mac

@semibogan @steve_evil Wait, you cull the hicks first, and then the marathon event goes for how long? Do I need to book extra nights?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

By the same logic, @yinettesys, we should not allow email addresses. Especially email addresses.

@semibogan @snare I am unarmed. They’re going to grab me as I get off the plane, aren’t they.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est la veille du voyage à la ville sur le lac. Je suis rempli d’inquiétude, sushi et au gingembre bière. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@semibogan @snare Just checking, “free range” is not the same thing as “free fire zone”, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@semibogan @snare Look, you’re not helping. I have to go to Canberra tomorrow and THEY are there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

RT @snare: @stilgherrian fairweather fuckwits? [That’s an improvement on what I was thinking, so yes.]

Thank you, @damonism @robcorr @nephstar, I’ll try Matso’s other brews some time, alas not on Cable Beach any time soon, @maldux.

@R_Chirgwin @adm_76 @purserj It sounds like Mr Harvey still can’t accept the idea that fundamental change is taking place.

via Plume for Android in reply to R_Chirgwin

@Taco_Lad @dev_dsp @pirate_taco I’ll leave you guys to lock in the logistics for Friday lunch then. I’m relaxed about such choices.

via Plume for Android in reply to Taco_Lad

@Taco_Lad @dev_dsp @pirate_taco Lunch could probably work, depending on what nasties lie in the email I haven’t opened yet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Taco_Lad

@Taco_Lad @dev_dsp @pirate_taco I’m likely to be on deadline first thing Friday morning, depending on how Thursday goes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Taco_Lad

@alexkidman I’ll have to check dates next week, but 4GB of RAM is way too annoying now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to alexkidman

@purserj @adm_76 That said, wasn’t there some Gerry Harvey arsehattery in the news the other day?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to purserj

@alexkidman That reminds me. Given my current MacBook Pro needs work, is there likely to be any sense in waiting for a bit before replacing?

@R_Chirgwin @loveont0ast You missed the obvious vagina dentata joke. Which is probably for the best.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Did I mention that I’m in Canberra from tomorrow afternoon to Friday afternoon? Well, I am.

via Janetter for Mac

@adm_76 @purserj Yeah, I don’t know why it’s blipped up again. Maybe it’s Annual Harvey Arsehat Week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adm_76

@adm_76 @purserj I think Mr Harvey would like us to take a Eugenic approach to it all.

@adm_76 @purserj Oh, that’d be the image of Harvey’s quote that giving to charities was a waste because you were supporting no-hopers.

@sylmobile Perhaps you misunderstand my needs and desires…
