I worked at the ABC years before it became a terrorist organisation. I feel like I’m missing out on something.

@dobes @FergusonNews So, Utopia repeats then. Excellent.

@dobes @FergusonNews The Marines should have bayonetted the lot of them when they had the chance.

Nice work, @FergusonNews and team. The big question is whether the Labor Party will actually learn anything from it.

@StanDevia So, a database admin fixed it manually. As far as I know, the official workflows have not been fixed.

via TweetDeck in reply to StanDevia

@StanDevia I was hosting a Google Hangout for Hitachi Data Systems, so I got corporate relations to get it sorted “outside the system”.

via TweetDeck in reply to StanDevia

@StanDevia I’d given up trying to do it through “the process”, and ignored it for ages. But then I needed to fix…

@SnarkyPlatypus @PointZeroOne So did I. But I think the phases are (1) capex; (2) solidify funding to go weekly; (3) add features, specials.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

There is no clear or established answer to this question, @jonoabroad. twitter.com/jonoabroad/sta…

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne @SnarkyPlatypus I’m thinking the stretch goals should be better kit. “The 9pm Edict” is a telethon venue for updating my kit.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne @SnarkyPlatypus Yes, a series of specials. “The 9pm Katoomba”, “The 9pm People at the Beach”, etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

I should mention that for a couple weeks I’d been planning to do The 9pm Hardware Refresh as a first campaign, then focus on subscribers.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @PointZeroOne This sort of thing can be done a stretch target? Or, yes, as another project.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@PointZeroOne @SnarkyPlatypus You also want to get their signatures on release forms and that sort of thing.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

I think @elronxenu has hit upon a core feature of this Reward. You’d have to sign a waiver. twitter.com/elronxenu/stat…

via TweetDeck

Ah, @PointZeroOne has an excellent suggestion here. I’ll have to factor in the logistics. This doesn’t sound cheap. twitter.com/PointZeroOne/s…

via TweetDeck

Yes, @SnarkyPlatypus, it’s kinda like a telethon for “The 9pm Edict”. But not live. Though I would like to be live. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

via TweetDeck

Anyway, I’d like most of the things to be something that could end up in a special episode of “The 9pm Edict”.

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne Anything. I can give you the benefit of my opinion in literally* any topic.

Sadly, I can’t do falsetto, @franksting. Even with post-processing I just can’t do it. twitter.com/franksting/sta…

You would know whether the pants were on or off, @mattdasilva, because there would be video.

People have asked whether Rewards could be combined. An erotic poem as a wake-up call? Sure, why not?

via TweetDeck

Anyway, they’re my ideas. I’ll blog your gathered thoughts tomorrow night, and circulate the list for further input. 7/7

via TweetDeck

I had thought of offering to write and perform an erotic poem about a public figure of your choice. That’d cost. Pants-off extra. 6/?

via TweetDeck

How do they sound? And what other sorts of things could I offer? Livestream the production? Add video? Have a studio audience? 5/?

via TweetDeck

For $100, a Morning Glory. A wake-up call with a difference. I’ll phone you or your sleepy-headed friend at the appointed time. 4/?

via TweetDeck

For $50, a Two Minutes Hate. You choose the topic, and I’ll rant about it in the podcast for two minutes. 3/?

via TweetDeck

I’m developing a system of @Pozible Rewards such that people will be able to pay for certain things to happen. How do these sound? 2/?

So, people, I’ll be doing a @Pozible campaign and special episode of “The 9pm Edict” podcast to get a new computer and stuff… 1/?

@Mick_Peel @Jeff_Sparrow A “sovereign individual”, perhaps? I’d like to see Freedom Boy go down that rabbit hole.

@MjwCoach @R_Chirgwin Ah, I would’ve been into multi-sheet maps of hexagons, and something about tunnels and gryphons I can’t quite recall.

@Jeff_Sparrow I’m surprised he hasn’t burned down some significant public building in protest.

@SnarkyPlatypus @sylmobile So, what I need are ideas for “inducements”. But I have a few thoughts on that already.

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. “The 9pm Hardware Refresh” as a one-off, then in the new financial year an emphasis on subscriptions.

@ataraxite My thoughts exactly. But now it’s clearly dying. I need to get a few more weeks out of it though, to crowdfund a new one.

@ataraxite This is a late-2011 MacBook Pro, bought in November if memory serves.

via Plume for Android in reply to ataraxite

It’s a wonder this machine still works at all possible, to tell the truth.

Well the Wi-Fi doesn’t work under the recovery boot either, so that’s hardware upfuckage, I’d say.

via Plume for Android

@joshgnosis That is indeed impressive. I’m deep in the dying computer stress zone this morning, so I punted them your way.

via Plume for Android in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis Hah! Well, I think my decision to get the new computer quickly, before certain other things, will prove to be the right one.

via Plume for Android in reply to joshgnosis

Right, as far as I can tell, WiFiAgent isn’t starting properly because it can’t create a connection to securityd. It just goes into a sulk.

@SnarkyPlatypus It has many intermittent faults, most due to hardware failure. This could still be.
