@JustJimWillDo No thank you. I am satisfied with my carrot. The carrot has satisfied me.

I just ate a carrot.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je n’ai pas un poney. Ce doit être corrigée. En outre, vous pouvez le tuer dans son sommeil.

@adm_76 I think so. At least until I complete the next podcast.

If this is how Twitter “works”, @kcarruthers @firstdogonmoon, I’d hate to think what it looks like when it’s broken.

@firstdogonmoon Hello, whoever you are. Do I even know you? You bet you are. You bet I am.

@semibogan @jonoabroad YouTube knows me. I typed “fu and it suggested “funky town pseudo echo”. Is this a good thing?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@dfg77 @expectproblems @dannolan @Menulog In the village culture up here, yes, taxis will run all manner of errands for you.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dfg77

@semibogan @jonoabroad I am not in the village right now. I am in K Town. It’s Fun, K Town. youtube.com/watch?v=VnejLm…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@dannolan I’ll go through this slowly. There are vendors on @Menulog who have alcohol as part of their commerce.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dannolan

@dannolan What are you on about? You can order alcohol on @Menulog. Forgetting this “everything has to be an app” BS, just phone your local.

@MalwareJake @comcastbusiness I’m willing to accept this argument. :) As I said earlier, good luck!

@MalwareJake Elapsed time 7 hours 15 minutes. Was that, technically, an indirect complaint about @comcastbusiness?

@ssharwood @mappingbabel Wait. So we want to stick it to this The Man? Or only behind his back? Or not at all. I’m lost.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

@mappingbabel Ah yes this makes sense. It’s hard to stick it to The Man when you ARE The Man, or aspire to be him.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mappingbabel

@mappingbabel My nasty-minded little theory: It’s because at a show, rather than at a club, someone else is the centre of attention.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mappingbabel

@gazoombo @thegrugq @kennwhite Well now we’re just getting far too sensible.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to gazoombo

@kennwhite @thegrugq I just thought of one, in fact. The business is called “The $2 Shop”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kennwhite

@navy1944 Oh wait, I see. I was retweeted by @BlogsofWar. As you were. Still, it IS a very good podcast… [Ducks.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to navy1944

@kennwhite @thegrugq Can I suggest putting -subj parameter in single quotes, to prevent some weird edge case causing parameter substitution?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kennwhite

@navy1944 @BlogsofWar What? That’s the first and only time I’ve mentioned it.

“Pentagon preparing for long war in Iraq, Syria”, says @starsandstripes. stripes.com/news/pentagon-… Crusader Rabbit says six months. Confused.

via Janetter for Mac

@nigelcameron @peterwsinger Not quite. ASIO spied on itself, and IGIS reported on the event. It’s still an embarrassing own goal, of course.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nigelcameron

@Steve_Lockstep Oh don’t get me started on that sort of short-termism. I will want to start stabbing things. Again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@helveticade @alexeckermann Perhaps. That’ll take about six weeks, the psychologists tell me. Plus or minus. Typical time for habituation.

via Plume for Android in reply to helveticade

@alexeckermann @helveticade Really? Hmmm. I’d prefer interface elements not to be screaming for attention. It’s distracting.

The new iTunes icon. Sigh. Apple seems intent on adopting the colour palette of a kindergarten child vomiting up all the crayons they ate.

@BlogsofWar The pleasure was all mine. The first two episodes provided much food for thought.

National security? Intelligence? Technology? You should be listening to @BlogsofWar’s new podcast “Covert Contact”. covertcontact.com

@Steve_Lockstep I might start looking for some of the research on agent-based modelling of the spread of political ideas. It may relate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@Steve_Lockstep Ah excellent. This is like what happened when evolutionary scientists starts looking at stock market traders. Kinda.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@Steve_Lockstep I want to add “[citation needed]” before retweeting that. It’s not just curve feels, is it?

@nancycato1 Oh my loose ends will be tidy soon enough, thank you. I’ve already fetched the implements.

@docbaty Ah yes, I think it was yesterday morning that I tweeted a link to a UK news story about that glorious green thing.

@sylmobile Maybe if you passed it around to show them afterwards, they’d be more sympathetic.

@Taco_Lad Yes. You are in grave danger. You must delete them all immediately, and then burn your computer.
