Finally finally, go listen to last week’s “The 9pm Victory over the Adult Hedgehog Onesie Bomber” ‘cos it’s good. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck

Oh, since I’m queuing up tweets to go out while I’m drinking gin, let me add that a new, more regular podcast schedule will start on 1 July.

via TweetDeck

Announcement part 3. A further episode of “The 9pm Edict” will appear some time around the Winter Solstice on 21 June, maybe with a bonfire.

via TweetDeck

If you don’t know what a Public House Forum is, then you should listen to the first two. stilgherrian.com/edict/00049/ stilgherrian.com/edict/00054/

via TweetDeck

The location for said Public House Forum recording, and the guests to be humiliated, will be announced in due course. Suggestions welcome.

via TweetDeck

Announcement part 2. The episode after that will be “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3”, to be recorded on Sat 4 Jun at 1400 AEST.

via TweetDeck

Here is an announcement in three parts. 1. The next episode of “The 9pm Edict” will appear next weekend, 21-22 May. It’s a Blue Moon too!

“Tony Ate… at Eight” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth, with jam. 0800 AEST, repeated 2000 AEST.

Me at @zdnetaustralia Friday: “It’s time to tell the truth about data sharing and data breaches” zdnet.com/article/its-ti…

via TweetDeck

@joannejacobs I have to look it up every time. Spelling “shemozzle” is a shemozzle.

via TweetDeck in reply to joannejacobs

I’ve just had cause to use the word “shemozzle” while opening a support ticket. It is a good word for a bad situation.

via TweetDeck

@smidgey @WhatsApp Yeah I’m not sure that I want an entire lexical database inside every damn app.

via TweetDeck in reply to smidgey

Look, I was just following standard procedure. First, before any thinking, complain loudly on Twitter. Then find someone to blame.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Hang on, @WhatsApp. I take that back. Your new security model won’t let you call out to get spelling checked. As you were. I am an arsehat.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Oh well done, @WhatsApp, you’ve managed to make it WORSE than the in-browser app. Bravo. twitter.com/zackster/statu…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

How the hell is the new @WhatsApp desktop app a 54MB download? It’s just a wrapper around their in-browser app. What have I gained here?

via TweetDeck

Just to be clear, I’m not watching . I don’t know why you are. I mean, I’m the one with a mental illness.

And matches.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Is anyone thinking that the will achieve anything other than making absolutely everything even more terrible than it already is?

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Well, there’s a goodly amount of wood under a blue tarp. [Shrugs]

WordPress has suddenly filled me with self-doubt. pic.twitter.com/NzmnHOYV3l

I have started a fire.

@twitchiebitch @monsieurarion Indeed. Everyone knows the canopies are the little umbrellas in the cocktails.

via TweetDeck in reply to twitchiebitch

@RahmiBey Yeah you’d better dive fast. “And” is a word, represented by a single character, the ampersand.

via TweetDeck in reply to RahmiBey

@SnarkyPlatypus @onekind My thing will be online today because tomorrow is Saturday. But the whole report is at www2.deloitte.com/au/privacy-ind…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@awelder @franksting I just wank without the self-congratulation. It’s more a wank with despair.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@franksting @awelder And there’s been some stunning work this year from quite a few people.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting I am not going to the Lizzies this year, no. You’ll have to cope without me.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting @bigmac OK, that fits with the point being made, that there’s been a significant shift in consumer sentiment in this period.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

“Drinks & canapés provided.” Four of the finest words in the English language.

@SnarkyPlatypus As it happens, the Deloitte Privacy Index did not rank real estate well. pic.twitter.com/jfEZiU559W

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@bigmac That’s probably the thing that we being referred to, yes. By “not new”, not old is not new?

via TweetDeck in reply to bigmac

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains no cybers whatsoever.

via TweetDeck

@zackster Oh I haven’t even thought about that yet! It’ll happen Monday, probably.

via TweetDeck in reply to zackster

@zackster Oh God, is it? I guess that’s how it has to be done.

via TweetDeck in reply to zackster

@zackster I’m told it explains that data can be transferred to and fro, yes?

via TweetDeck in reply to zackster

@zackster Ah gotcha. That makes sense in the context of what was said. Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to zackster

Well, I’ve been told there is such a warning. I don’t use Facebook so I have no idea.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Hey can a Facebook user please grab me a screenshot of the privacy warning it supposedly now gives when logging in to third-parth sites?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @glengyron So we had links other than politics. Which is why we got the first interview when she’d refused all others.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @glengyron She was quite level-headed, except when she was trolling me. She’d been a teacher and taught my presenter’s kids.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@glengyron @SnarkyPlatypus Anyway, unlike certain other federal political ex-leaders, she kept her promise to leave politics alone.

via TweetDeck in reply to glengyron

@glengyron @SnarkyPlatypus Well yes, all of that, but she felt strongly that you live in your electorate. We spoke about this at length.

via TweetDeck in reply to glengyron

@SnarkyPlatypus @glengyron True. We had the first interview with Haines after the result, then drank vats of wine with she and her husband.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Plodding through my writing, but being distracted by messages, and by the joys of starting out the window.

via TweetDeck

Right, time to get some writing done.

via TweetDeck

@brentspargo No need. I’m in the Mountains today, and will be here across the weekend.

via TweetDeck in reply to brentspargo

Fri plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia; laundry; get a fire going; organise the next few weeks; tell people; open a wine; start the weekend.

via TweetDeck

Is the election campaign still going, or has everything just imploded?

“Tony Ate… at Eight” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth, with jam. 0800 AEST, repeated 2000 AEST.

@incorrect Too many, I reckon, causing all this wind.

via TweetDeck in reply to incorrect

Fri plan, draft: Write for @zdnetaustralia; laundry; organise the next couple of weeks; get a fire going; open the wine; start the weekend.

via TweetDeck

Why is it still so windy?

via TweetDeck

Friday. Just empty it out and give it a bit of a rinse and it should be alright. Friday.
