@bigbadave @davidgwynnjones @5at5daily These were from work accounts… though some did have specific holiday info, yeah.

@JohnBirmingham @hardy_bm It all matches both the feel I expect the book to have and your sense of humour.

@davidgwynnjones @5at5daily There’s a lot of media and geekfolk on the list, tend to have less restrictive email policies.

@ClintonDucas @5at5daily Oh thank you. TBH, I’d been thinking they’d been a bit thrown together, so that’s good to hear.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClintonDucas

That @5at5daily mailout triggered quite a few out-of-office messages.

via Janetter for Mac

@interrogativus Why thank you. :) I think I’d been saving up some snark.

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains stage coaches, a steam ship and a rabbit hole.

via Janetter for Mac

@BundyB I’m not sure that @JohnBirmingham describing the premise and me saying “Yeah sounds good” counts as “consulting”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

@Greybeard3 Well, I grew up on a dairy farm. I am more than familiar with the broad requirements of the task.

“A helicopter is no place for a hangover.” I’m sure we spoke about that first sentence too, @JohnBirmingham

Thanks to @AlboMP it’ll be another 20 minutes before I can start writing because I am too busy giggling.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to myrcurial

@Viss Heh! I suspect my account will have some reasons for what that is a bad idea at my scale. Still, tempting…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Viss

@myrcurial Jesus. I’m still having breakfast here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to myrcurial

@Viss Tell me about it. I still do some tech stuff for legacy clients, and most costs are in USD. It’s a four-year low and diving.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Viss

@myrcurial How tall are you? Are you the tall shambling looming sidekick? Or the short scurrying leering sidekick?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to myrcurial

@Viss I shall consider, thank you. The AUD is a bit shit at the moment, so I may wait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Viss

@MalwareJake It would indeed. But if anyone’s going to be the first, DPRK would be on my list.

Then again, @MalwareJake, DPRK is short of hard currency, and in the past has been implicated in drug smuggling. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pong_Su_i…

via Janetter for Mac

MalwareJake DPRK may have hired an attack group to hit Sony, but the extortion attempts ahead of info release aren’t consistent with mil/gov hacks.
