@dfg77 You’re too kind. Thanks, that does help me calibrate my frustrations.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 Perhaps. I’m still in the “oh fuck another self-imposed deadline missed” hole.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 Yeah I was a bit, erm, ambitious with my timelines. I ended up on a client rabbit hole for much of the day and didn’t finish it.

RT @kcarruthers: why does SharePoint hate me? [Because SharePoint hates everything. That’s what it does.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Given that I’m not going to finish stuff for “The 9pm Edict” subscriber thingy, I might just blog today’s radio spots and sulk.

@cogntvdissident Really, 2000 nukes is just an appetiser. I’m after the main course.

Thank you for all your helpful* suggestions regarding a nuclear armageddon. You will be thanked.

Hypothetically speaking, how many nuclear weapons would one need to let off to guarantee destroying all life on earth?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to WP_DownUnder

Looking back at the day’s plan, I see that I’ve achieved precisely none of it. So there’s that.

@PacketNetworks That did cheer me up, I should mention belatedly, despite it being such a dad joke.

@dananimal I don’t think the loss was in the wi-fi between here and the building where the DSL comes in. I think it’s in Telstra’s bit.

@jeamland @mjec I agree, both Perl and the Molotov cocktail possess certain stark practicality and efficiency.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

@jeamland @mjec It’s not as sharp as I thought it could be. Possibly because they don’t understand the true beauty of Perl.

@derekbradley As an aside, the fact that I know what a lsof problem even is should be a cause for concern.

Tue plan: Set up and launch subscriber drive for “The 9pm Edict”; break for shopping, Katoomba; @5at5daily; evening TBA, if there is one.

via Janetter for Mac

@AshGhebranious This is true. I shall file it under “learning experience”. I have many learning experiences. One day I shall learn from one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AshGhebranious

@derekbradley Yes, it was very much that sort of thing.

@scott_thewspot Apple has not confirmed the speculation. It’s currently supposition based on when certain attacks tools were available.
