ChrisJohnRiley If your project doesn’t have ASCII art, why did you bother releasing it at all???

Experiencing anxiety because there should be a comma rather than a full stop at one point in my immediately previous tweet.

@memberful Quick question. Does your WordPress integration currently handle more than one WordPress site in one Memberful account?

Well, @dobes, Churchill was an alcoholic and Kennedy a meth head, so therefore Mr Rabbit is…

RT @dobes: “Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce has likened the political courage of Tony Abbott to Winston Churchill and John F Kennedy.”

Gosh, some of you are rather uncharitable when it comes to Mr Kenny.

“I did not have sexual relations with that canine.”

via Janetter for Mac

I still don’t get the argument. A reasonable person would believe that Chris Kenny would have sex with a dog? People would think that?

via Janetter for Mac

Dear ABC, can you please broadcast a ‘shopped image of me having sex with… oh, any animal you like and give me $20,000? I’m cheaper.

I daresay that eBay staging the emails is as much about spreading out the customer support load etc as about mail server load. @steveathon

via Janetter for Mac

RT @steveathon: the question is why they are not FORCING a password change and text / snail mail verification. [No small task, that.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to steveathon

@KathAlbury I don’t think eBay has given an exact date, but “earlier in May” is their official line. Yes, that’s too slow, in my opinion.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KathAlbury

@davispg eBay’s statement to investors yesterday said they’d seen no increase in fraudulent activity. I believe their data mining is good.

RT @RatbagsDotCom: I got my email from eBay yesterday morning. [OK, so 145 million emails will take a while.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RatbagsDotCom

I hadn’t checked since early this morning Sydney time, but ebay.com.au now also has a message as first home-page carousel item.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s my quick and dirty PDF of the email eBay is now sending out. stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via Janetter for Mac

eBay tells me the email asking users to change their password is starting to be sent now to all customers, but it’ll take a while of course.

via Janetter for Mac

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia, finally. i was simultaneously doing something that I think you’ll appreciate, but that appears tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. That was easier than I’d feared. Well, onto actual productive work. Finally.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, preliminary matters: Sort out this keyboard problem, and maybe find a mouse as well. And a gun. A gun would be handy.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan: Hearty breakfast (done); write for @zdnetaustralia; podcast production and related syadmin tasks; @5at5daily; quiet evening.

@LeonieGSmith On ebay.com, but not on ebay.com.au as far as I can see, and I just refreshed. They’re a bit slow.

@davymark1 Yes. Definitely. And everywhere else you may have used the same password. Today.

I’m seeing “No” a lot in reply to “Have you received notification from eBay?” I’m looking for anyone with “Yes”. No need to reply “No”, ta.

via Janetter for Mac

So has anyone actually recieved this notification that eBay said they were going to start sending yesterday?

That’s serious incompetence. Things like width, height, turning circle etc are the basics of the engineering spec for any railway system.

@R_Chirgwin Oh, the other day you mentioned a spare keyboard? I eem to have lost “v” as well as “l” now. (Don’t ask how I typed that.)

@R_Chirgwin I think you’ll agree that the voltage shouldn’t be dropping that fast when drawing just 1.2A.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Something is very confused. Half an hour later we have this, and one inverter showing red “low” light. pic.twitter.com/7mHM6eBXvN

@Trev_t4e @myxer99 Yes, I’m with you on that. Again, I’ll follow up that matter this afternoon.

@R_Chirgwin Feel free to call when you’re able, should you feel the need. I have coffee now, and am addressing my plans.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin There is power. I am using it now. But the instrumentation says I’m not.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin There was no power. I reset. Voltage went down to 42.9V. Ran generator for 15 mins. 49.9V, dropping rapidly to this 10 mins ago.

@R_Chirgwin Now I am completely confused. Zeros on the right? I need coffee. pic.twitter.com/vqZqWuRy18

RT @jeamland: I see @stilgherrian’s “wake up” tweets as being a mixture of a day planner and @hottestsingles. [Yes, plus other things.]

Friday. It will be worse that you can imagine. Even if you have a very vivid imagination. Friday.
