@SnarkyPlatypus I shall be able to cope with Japan. I shall take special coping medicine.

I’m going to need quite a bit of wine to recover from this.

@timfdavis Yes, my ex @ApostrophePong is currently trolling me from Bangkok. “But it’s such an Asian thing.” And sending me stickers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

I just installed Line to check something out and my brain has just had a kitschgasm.

via Janetter for Mac

@TatteredRemnant Nope. I have never watched Game of Thrones.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TatteredRemnant

Oh that’s right, I have to watch three hours of video tonight.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh now fuckin’ Hodge is getting in on the act. Give me strength.

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I wasn’t aware the Isle of Man was so lacking in accommodation. [Hence not the Isle of Men, but just the one.]

@SnarkyPlatypus L’ordinateur a été fait vierge une fois de plus, puis sauvagement violée.

@SnarkyPlatypus Il a été un après-midi ensoleillé, remercient les dieux, mais seulement 12 degrés.

RT @jeamland: I have to say, @stilgherrian, that a lead-light George Brandis sounds delightful*. [Cut holes to let the clue waft in.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

RT @MsLods: Yep, still can’t download a new Attorney-General. [No. But you can fill him with molten lead. Hypothetically speaking.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MsLods

The internet is just stupid.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis épuisé, mais j’ai fait ce qu’il fallait faire. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

One more @jeamland is defaming me.

Net Promoter Score is bullshit.

@semibogan Look, both @snare and I may mistreat hardware, but at least his serves some purpose. I’m just clumsy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@gusworldau I have become remarkably tolerant of high buzzword density presentations. I just imagine them all as chickens.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gusworldau

Well the MacBook Pro has decided to behave itself, after shoved a chisel up its jaxie and twisted.

@nancycato1 @peterjchalmers @kcarruthers @paulwallbank That’s a football thing, isn’t it? IS THAT A FOOTBALL THING?

Oh look. Dodo has copped a formal warning from ACMA over consumer code compliance. That never* happens. acma.gov.au/Industry/Telco…

via Janetter for Mac

So that’s one whole thread of what I write about ruined by @semibogan, the arsehole.

via Janetter for Mac

semibogan Are we all still begging for security research to be taken legitimately? You should all know politicians respond to rhetoric, not evidence.

via Twitter for iPhone (retweeted on 9:45 AM, Jun 18th, 2014 via Janetter for Mac)

OK, that’s probably enough procrastination. Time to get the tools and start “fixing” the MacBook Pro.

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank Lovely. Just don’t choose the one with my name on it, because poison.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

RT @paulwallbank: Revisiting 2006 at pic.twitter.com/42PSLBKjrj [Awww… I’m missing out on all the fun today.]

RT @BXGD: Aren’t all Apple hardware problems fixed via paperclip insertion? [No, I found that it hurts if you’re not VERY careful.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

@sylmobile @kcarruthers A screwdriver has been suggested by @michaelneale and will be tried soon. I live in a forest and must improvise.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

Last night I posted “Improve July with The 9pm Edict”, which will compel you to part with your money. skank.com.au/news/subscribe…

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale Oh this machine has just been dropped too many times, all sorts of dents and warping of the shell,

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Ah, thank you, that sounds like exactly the thing. I was pondering what tool to try first, and that makes sense.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

Oh yes, @SnarkyPlatypus, there shall be pictures of ALL the problems. I may even make a video pointing out their operational impact.

via Janetter for Mac

Later today I shall catalog all the problems with my MacBook Pro and regale you with a fascinating* series of complaints.

via Janetter for Mac

My plan of action is to use some sort of blokely brute-force tool to, erm, undo the relevant bending. And then a hammer may be involved.

via Janetter for Mac

My MacBook Pro body is bent such that when a DVD ejects it encounters resistance which it interprets as re-insertion. And I must watch DVDs.

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan, draft: Make MacBook Pro behave; lunch and shopping, Katoomba; “The 9pm Edict” production; @5at5daily; an evening of videos.

@mwyres I suppose you could try to phish the domain-holder and then hijack the domain, but again you can do that at any time.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mwyres

@SnarkyPlatypus Comme mesure provisoire, remplissez un seau d’eau de Javel bouillante et le lancer sur lui.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mwyres Ta. I mean, lists of domains are public things anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mwyres

This is a theory someone has that I’m thinking might not be a thing.

via Janetter for Mac

Spam-Fighters, have you seen or heard of a correlation between a domain being “announced” as expiring and an increase in spam at it?

via Janetter for Mac

Today is going to be a very annoying day.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je gèle et à court de sommeil, et j’ai été amené à comprendre que beaucoup millinery de connards se passe. Et vous?
