@divadybhsa @shiftkey @danger5tv Yeah, I’m remembering how many goddam drinks are in that show. But you deserve it, Sir. Brilliant series.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to divadybhsa

BTW, @shiftkey, I see @danger5tv creator @divadybhsa is making each of the cocktails as the episodes air tonight. Good plan.

via Janetter for Mac

@shiftkey Yes, I was going to watch along again with everyone tonight, but I’m enjoying the quiet sounds of the night now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@shiftkey Um, in amongst the many, many things that are in @danger5tv, “Sensible Chuckle” magazine is a small one. Like “Fist for Men” mag.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

@wine_o_phile Yeah, possums can be extremely confident little buggers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to wine_o_phile

Well, there’s half an hour of possum-related distraction. I may just make it through the night.

RT @iMim4: With that face, I’d give him the whole loaf and the toaster to take home. [No, it’s a con. Like pandas and their damn eye trick.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iMim4

RT @Sam_Hickey: it looked like it planned to steal the toaster [Yeah, the little fucker. And then stood its ground.]

via Janetter for Mac

Can’t speak to gender, @organicperson, I wasn’t looking at that end of the possum.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m sorry the photos aren’t sharper, but the light wasn’t so bright, and I was too busy laughing.

via Janetter for Mac

The little fucker was going to try it on, too.

via Janetter for Mac

That possum is a lot bigger than I thought it would be, @R_Chirgwin. Nevertheless, I have persuaded it to go out the way it came.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: Things I found out while my mother was visiting from Adelaide this week: She’s a Corby truther. [Like mother, like son…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @magooify: Because it looks more like something from a porn film. Maybe titled “arse-ter chef”. [Oh… Um, alright then.]

RT @daniels_den: Is @danger5tv on @SBS2 any good? [“Any good”? It is superb beyond all compare. Heathen!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to daniels_den

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. It does. And it is. And if you don’t mind, the emergency duck and I shall have a quiet, private moment together.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ericscheid Oh I plan to get comprehensively ducked, trust me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ericscheid

Amid many cordial greetings and best wishes for the new year, a request for emergency duck has been made and accepted.

via Janetter for Mac

Approaching the Place of Enduckment.

@adam_kent Perhaps Adelaide, but it seems unlikely.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adam_kent

@SnarkyPlatypus I will speak with it personally on your behalf.

@stufromoz Thank you. This should be fairly straightforward. It’s a standard process, and we’ve all done it before over the years.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to stufromoz

I think this might be an opportune moment to re-initiate the emergency duck procedure.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Larry Wall lists laziness as one the the three virtues of a good programmer. The computer is meant to be doing the work.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin No. The coder viewpoint is “I’ve already done it once, so now it should just happen.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @kcarruthers: Sometimes @johnmcternan is simply correct.
@BernardKeane [Sometimes. Sure. Stopped clock, and all that… (Winks)]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kcarruthers

Besides, @R_Chirgwin, I’m really not in the mood for an ambulance ride tonight.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah look, @R_Chirgwin, that all sounds too hard. I have series 1 of @danger5tv on the laptop, so I’ll just watch along with everyone else.

via Janetter for Mac

I assume the engineers are in India, because they made a classic 30-minute error in a timezone calculation when setting up the schedule.

via Janetter for Mac

Not that I’m really working. I’m more just sitting around whinging while engineers … somewhere … will be doing the actual work.

via Janetter for Mac

I don’t think I’ll bother @R_Chirgwin with it. I can’t see the TV from the dining table where I’m working anyway.

via Janetter for Mac

Can I be bothered asking @R_Chirgwin how one obtains a television signal in this house?

via Janetter for Mac

MolksTVTalk The @danger5tv S02 premiere tomorrow 9:30pm @SBS2 is as close to perfect as your find for a TV series. Do not miss it.

So, the server migration is scheduled to start at midnight AEDT. The engineers are about to start their pre-migration checks. I wait.

via Janetter for Mac

“You can provide [the password] in this ticket and it will be secure.” OK. It may well have been. Until you emailed it back to me.

via Janetter for Mac

@morebento @johnmcternan @BernardKeane There’s something wrong with you. Deeply and tragically wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to morebento

@SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz I’m glad I did. I got quality service, whether conscious or not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Pro Tip: Whatever happens when I am unconscious is not my fault. @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz

via Janetter for Mac

How can it even be my fault, @SnarkyPlatypus @stufromoz? I was unconscious!

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stufromoz I blame @stilgherrian for my only trip in an ambulance. [Why is it MY fault?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

johnmcternan @BernardKeane Kale should be washed, shredded, steamed and thrown out of the window as no use to a human being.

@jmwinkelman1985 @thegrugq Yeah, um, look I grew up on a dairy farm. Obviously there’s a lot I’m not permitted to talk about.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jmwinkelman1985

@pbkub @KetanJ0 Well in the US, “socialist” is now just a generic bad-thing word that you throw at any damn thing you like. It’s handy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pbkub

@pbkub @KetanJ0 No clue on the Flickr page, but it can’t be any earlier than the 1950s, because the B-52 is in it.

@reubenacciano I suspect your father is not the only one like this. There is much anger here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to reubenacciano

A man shouts at the TV, berating a horse for an inability to run in a straight line at speed to suit his investment strategy. With swearing.

@scottcarson1957 Yes, when the little woman lets you down, there’s always beer.

@ClintonDucas I don’t quite know what is happening, but I will check to see if the phenomenon is repeatable. Because Science, obviously.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClintonDucas

@19bk69 No, I have things to do this evening.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@ClintonDucas I am consoling myself with a sub-$5 schooner of Coopers Pale Ale while I make alternative plans.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClintonDucas

@ClintonDucas No, no you don’t understand. There are NO emergency animals available at all. Nor consolatory vegetables. All is dark.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ClintonDucas

@SnarkyPlatypus Nah, it’s deathly quiet here during the day these two holiday weeks. They’re still open for dinner tonight. I shall return.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

This comes as quite a shock.

via Janetter for Mac

Uhoh. I seem to have encountered a difficult situation. Emergency duck is not available at this time of day until Monday. I must re-plan.

via Janetter for Mac

@mrgrumio Ooh, tricky question. I’d better not comment on your personal situation vis-a-vis your role as a communist infiltrator.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mrgrumio

@scottcarson1957 Ain’t that the truth. The five-cent Coca-Cola was sort of along those lines.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 My God, you’re right! How did America survive this onslaught by those cunning, filthy Reds?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@SnarkyPlatypus No, not yet. I’m about to do that right now though. Just as soon as I find my shoes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

OK, I’d better get this show on the road.

via Janetter for Mac

I’d never thought of the electricity grid as communism before. Man, no wonder they were so fearful! Communism wired directly to your home!
