@crispin_harris Thank you. Yes, five radio spots this week, which is fairly busy. But given the news stories, not unexpected.

@crispin_harris No, I agree. I’ve been frustrated by the sick computer and the sore throat. Both seem to be getting better.

@crispin_harris @mpesce I wouldn’t want to go 45 mins on that. I’m trying to bring the podcast down to under 30 mins.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to crispin_harris

@mpesce I need to get the podcast out the door at some point.

@BXGD I can read that stuff, but you’re right, it’s hard work.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BXGD

@BXGD True enough. And earlier, I imagine.

@mpesce @nytimes Oh I couldn’t possibly comment on that, being the official media organ of an extraterrestrial regime.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

So it takes a decade for @nytimes to call a spade a spade. There’s conservatism, and then there’s wilful blindness.

@Manic_Henry @R_Chirgwin I don’t know the specifics, but I assume it’s seasonal, and we have an early spring this year.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Manic_Henry

@oggsie Ah yes, @GordyPls’ article is pretty good on this stuff. If I see another I’ll tweet it.

Saturday. The calculations have been made. The decision has been reached. There is nothing you can do to change the outcome. Saturday.
