@YingHaoLi I’m sure there’s a connection but I’d prefer not to think about it.

via TweetDeck in reply to YingHaoLi

@YingHaoLi Well this is clearly going to be excellent and it’s why we invented the internet.

@safzoro Well there’s no womb for that complexity, is there.

@semibogan @oberonsghost This is true, and it’s a mystery why more people don’t understand these basic points.

@nschultz Coopers Brewery has a lot to answer for.

@NewtonMark Yeah, but I’m not sure I want to go back.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@YingHaoLi Great to hear. And food is obviously the place to start.

via TweetDeck in reply to YingHaoLi

@NicholasFryer @CaseyBriggs @skwashd @NewtonMark You get calls at random times from political staffers calling you a cunt. This is nothing.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer @CaseyBriggs @skwashd @NewtonMark There are many possible answers, but this is pretty soft stuff by media standards.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

Adelaide is basically one giant conspiracy theory and training camp for serial killers.

via TweetDeck

@skwashd @NewtonMark @NicholasFryer @CaseyBriggs The word “shibboleth” comes to mind at this point.

via TweetDeck in reply to skwashd

@NewtonMark @NicholasFryer @CaseyBriggs So what you’re saying is that you don’t have enough serious things to get angry about?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@skwashd @MarbleBarSydney There is evidence to suggest that that’s an, erm, approximation.

via TweetDeck in reply to skwashd

@SquarespaceHelp Thanks. I’ve been meaning to check you out for ages, and this client provided the excuse. Very happy so far.

@skwashd @Laphroaig @MarbleBarSydney I’ve maintained calendar data since last century. It was Monday 19 December 2011, from 1830 to 2200.

via TweetDeck in reply to skwashd

@CaseyBriggs Is the term not “heaps Adelaide”?

via TweetDeck in reply to CaseyBriggs

Is there a comment that could possibly be more Adelaide? twitter.com/CaseyBriggs/st…

via TweetDeck

@skwashd @MarbleBarSydney @Laphroaig Wow. That’s more than four years ago. Have you checked that the relevant trading authorities approve?

@expectproblems “Go off”? Has is been there for more than a century?

I was actually on time with my Weekly Wrap this week, should you care about such things. It has ducks. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@NewtonMark You’re right. Putin has been pushing the boundaries, and with the US still coping (just) with two land wars in Central Asia…

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@AussiemacJ @leighformayor Yeah look vaginas aren’t one of my strong points either, but I do feel free to speculate.

via TweetDeck in reply to AussiemacJ

@1c75a @leighformayor Yeah, they should explain these things more clearly.

via TweetDeck in reply to 1c75a

@1c75a @leighformayor Yes, we all know the vagina acts as an expulsion device during childbirth, like circus cannons do with clowns. Voop!

The vagina as useless bystander. twitter.com/leighformayor/…

I’ve just been setting up a client’s @squarespace account and its resold Google Apps for Work email. The integration is fairly well done.

via TweetDeck

@will_ock I say, that’s a handy little utility. Cheers.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@twcau Yep, thanks, @Djelibeybi suggested that too, but it has all that stuff I don’t need, and I’ve found something that’s handy for me.

via TweetDeck in reply to twcau

So, Notification Centre, and then use System Preferences’ Keyboard section to map Command-Escape onto Show/Hide Notification Centre. Done.

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale This policy could lead to problems, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@Djelibeybi @bjango That does look good, but I only need the clocks. I don’t do anything that needs the system monitoring.

via TweetDeck in reply to Djelibeybi

Wow, @michaelneale still uses the Dashboard too. I really did think I was old-fashioned dropping it as late as I did.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Thanks. I’ll go with @snare and the Notification Centre. I’m surprised @NewtonMark @liquidparanoia still go wth the Dashboard though.

@R_Chirgwin Ishe smarter than a cat? Artemis took three lessons to learn that the striped marsh frog was not a thing to carry in her mouth.

OK, lazy question time. For OS X, a handy pop-up world clock, five time zones or so?

I’ve seen some videos, @BurgerKing. Come back when it’s triple fisting. twitter.com/R_Chirgwin/sta…

@pandymonium01 Well it sounded like it might be more impressive, but no. Indeed, the rain has now petered out entirely. Useless.

via TweetDeck in reply to pandymonium01

@R_Chirgwin Nah, it’s not even close to us. It’s a pissy, useless little thing. Much like Peter Dutton.

@michaelneale I’d only started hearing the thunder maybe an hour ago, but that’s when I opened a window on that side.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

Oh. It just began pleuting here at @bunjaree.

This thunderstorm has been brewing over past Katoomba for an hour now. I wish it’d get its shit together. pic.twitter.com/ltA7TLbb4h

@connor_ser @duckbytheoboe No, I am sick of you and all this ‘science’. They are bad people. Morally defective. And there the matter ends.

@dobes @caulkthewagon @kcarruthers You have not been cleared to be briefed on that part of The Plan.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@R_Chirgwin @LukeLPearson It’s a bit like complaining about The Wiggles because Dorothy the Dinosaur can sing.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @LukeLPearson Yeah, but it’s not the lamb advert’s job to present historical narrative. It’s meant to be OTT stupidity…

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@dobes @caulkthewagon @kcarruthers If you stay in The America then things might turn out differently.

@R_Chirgwin People are getting home and tweeting the story. Yours was the only negative one I’ve seen so far.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Oh, no, I didn’t think it was a subtweet. :) My paranoia may be extreme but it’s not without some subtlety.

@R_Chirgwin Don’t you normally start Operation Whinge Against The World at 1900?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin There is no joy in your life any more, is there. Everything it terrible, especially other people having a bit of fun.

So this year’s Australia Day lamb advert with @LeeLinChinSBS is completely over the top. au.entertainment.yahoo.com/a/30528401/lee…

@mattdasilva Perhaps, some of the other things there are kind of important too.

Sun plan: Tidy up certain loose ends (in progress); shopping, Katoomba; client sysadmin task; Weekly Wrap; certain ponderings, with wine.

Sunday. There is a New Moon, but it is functionally equivalent to the old one, so nobody will notice. Until they find the Thing. Sunday.
