So I’ve been away a couple of days. Who’s Premier of NSW this week?

@seearjay Thanks. The weather was perfect. I’ll do better versions of these pics when I have the time.

Someone has produced another credit card, upon which MOAR DRINKS are being organised. I’ve chosen to leave them to it, despite the jeering.

So it’s almost 2245 and there’s some overly-complicated logistical operation going on involving six cases of wine.

RT @elronxenu: @stilgherrian You’ve done enough already. A Pascal programmer can write Pascal in any language. @damana @johncarneyau [True.]

I know they meant well, but that was truly horrid. And I ate all of it.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh Dear God, that is SO cherry. And the ingredients list includes “fruit and vegetable juice for color”. Unspecified.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m not sure which is more disturbing, the idea that cherry anything is Australian, or that it’s “wallaby yoghurt”.

@SnarkyPlatypus Indeed. Much of the bulllying was done BY the prefects. But that’s hardly new information.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Actually, to go by the kind of people who became prefects at the school I went to, fascism was generally what DID make people prefects.

via Janetter for Mac

Nigel Farage “a fascist, but that was no reason why he would not make a good prefect.” Sure. channel4.com/news/nigel-far… HT @SnarkyPlatypus

@PeteLawler @elronxenu And to think I nearly contacted the handset manufacturers for loaner review units to try their cameras. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteLawler

@Telstra Thanks, but I can see confirmation from other sources that they’re definitely locked to Telstra. Cheers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

@Telstra Thanks for the quick reply, Lindy. I suspected that would be the case. Annoying, but nothing you or I can do anout that. Thanks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Telstra

If I were more of a telco whore I wouldn’t be paying for mobile data at all, but I don’t want to do that except for specific projects.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks for that, @elronxenu @PeteLawler. I’d forgotten this battered, spare phone wasn’t actually 4G. But 3G is adequate for my needs.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh it was some budget provider in the selection available at a stall at the airport. I’ll try it with another provider.
