@dsearls Ah yes! So many fields are ripe pickings for this sort of thing.

@BXGD There’s some deep human-nature thing at play there.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@BXGD Ta for that. So taking the NJPD stuff at face value, I’m fascinated by how a few people becomes many more in the re-telling…

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@BXGD So to get the timeline straight, there was an original WaPo story based on NJPD at the time, later withdrawn?

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@BXGD Well that’s shoddy work by them, sure.

@BundyB This sounds an excellent plan. But sadly your suggestion can’t be implemented today, because I do have a couple things to do.

via TweetDeck in reply to BundyB

Sometimes the first suggestions are the best. twitter.com/BundyB/status/…

So, I woke up well before 0500, and I’ve already had breakfast and a 90-minute nap. It’s now 1000. What’s the plan for the rest of the day?

@NewtonMark This is not to say that I’m not happy with it. On the contrary. It’s just to say there’s EVEN MOAR in the doco.

@R_Chirgwin Oh good, glad that worked. It’s also a good plan to run a Time Machine backup before each update, ‘cos they’re bootable too.
