Don’t tell anyone, but I have ice-cream, and I’m going to eat all of it.

via TweetDeck

@rik_ferguson Ah, that would be lovely, because I’ve never been to the east coast. But alas it’s just AISA in Sydney.

via TweetDeck in reply to rik_ferguson

Speaking of avoiding eye contact, @rik_ferguson, your people are trying to ensure we meet soon. They seem determined.

via TweetDeck in reply to rik_ferguson

rik_ferguson Complete silence attempting to avoid all eye contact and all mirrors.

Oh. I misunderstood this as a draw-to-attention thing,not a suggestion. I will sheepishly ask tomorrow. twitter.com/trentyarwood/s…

@NuclearAnthro Our possums are marsupials. Are your opossums marsupials?

@max_au @figgled I shall do some investigation, thank you.

@natecochrane Do I have to put pants on for that?

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

@djshaneday Getting @LyleShelton upset about the homosexuals is a bit like annoying bees. Easy, but ultimately pointless.

via TweetDeck in reply to djshaneday

@D_Keating For the podcast or the possums?

via TweetDeck in reply to D_Keating

Maybe Senator @HumanHeadline has the Saturday off. That’d be a hoot.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@davispg Maybe the wind turbines can fix that.

THERE ARE POSSUMS HAVING SEX IN THE CEILING AGAIN AND IT IS LOUD AND ANNOYING.

via TweetDeck

@sirneggles Ah yes, but is it funny? People will accept all manner of rubbish in a festival.

via TweetDeck in reply to sirneggles

@incorrect If I can possibly avoid that, yes. Although chartering a helicopter is about $5000 from memory.

via TweetDeck in reply to incorrect

Are there any funny people in Melbourne? Like, does the city ever do anything with humour?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@stevemcilhatton Well I must admit, I’m not a bad shot.

@mokargas I think cholera can be cured, though.

I wonder if I could get Andrew Bolt.

@jodiem I have already emailed @firstdogonmoon my “Unappealing, unpaid podcast proposal”. He is just so famous these days though.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

Anyway, I’ve just started sending emails to random people in my address book, so there’s that.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

As you can see, the panel consists of a comedian, a cartoonist, a journalist, and @paulwallbank. For some reason.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The topics depend on what’s in the news and who’s in the panel. twitter.com/jodiem/status/…

Here’s what “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 3” looked like, and sounded like. stilgherrian.com/edict/00059/ pic.twitter.com/FcdWPTpnKf

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Pondering what Melbourne people might be interesting to have on that podcast panel.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@NewtonMark I decided to focus in getting things right for Melbourne. There’s a “normal” Edict this Tuesday night.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Fact 2: “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 4” will be somewhere in Melbourne on Sat 29 Oct. Details will emerge later this week.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Fact 1: “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 4” will NOT be in Sydney this Sat 15 Oct.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I even got the Weekly Wrap written nice and early. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Despite what appeared to be a busy day, it actually turned out to be reasonably restful. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@SydneyTom_ As always I am late to the game. I used to have underlings who kept me informed in such matters.

@PollHereford The Christmas Carp sounds like a terribly misconceived sex toy.

via TweetDeck in reply to PollHereford

Great name for a band, though. “Band of Fishwives”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@PollHereford You don’t want carp. I am familiar with carp and they’re nothing but trouble.

via TweetDeck in reply to PollHereford

“They smoked small pipes of tobacco, took snuff, drank gin and were known for their colourful language.”

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The Wikipedia has a nice discussion of fishwives. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fishwife

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@PollHereford How the hell do you get fishwives so far inland?

via TweetDeck in reply to PollHereford

They might as well broadcast the sound of a dozen kitchen blenders with a trio of fishwives shouting at them.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Oh. I was quite enjoying this quiet lunch until someone decided we need motor racing commentary at high volume because it’s so interesting.

via TweetDeck

@dobes It’s some sort of epicentre over there. It can’t be healthy for you.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@dobes I had someone tell me about that place yesterday. It’s a thing, apparently.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@jodiem “Simple Calendar - Google Calendar Plugin”. You have to set up API access to Google Calendar, but that’s not especially annoying.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@peter_tonoli Cool, I’ll check it out online, and then send a scout around.

via TweetDeck in reply to peter_tonoli

@SnarkyPlatypus Sydney folk think travelling any longer than 15 minutes is all too hard. See also Tropfest in Parramatta Sulkage.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus It was. Though the numbers have been roughly the same for each one. Melbourne is more participatory though.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I also have to figure out who’ll be on the panel, but I’ve already had some thoughts about that.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@Lobes Though that said, we’re using stage mics so theres good sound.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lobes

@Lobes They sound ideal. We don’t want to disturb the punters, or them and their music or screens to bother us.

via TweetDeck in reply to Lobes

This is how we did the last Public House Forum. The panel on the top table, and a bunch of reprobates having lunch..twitter.com/i/web/status/7…VW

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The Spreadeagle looks interesting. Main need is an area that’s a bit separate, for the noise both ways. twitter.com/ScottFitzG/sta…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This is a great set-up, but overkill for what we need. Just need a long table for the panel, and tables for maybe 2..twitter.com/i/web/status/7…M8

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

That should’ve said “note” not “noite”, but I do like that alternative word. twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Noite also that I’m after recommendations for a suitable Melbourne pub to recordThe 9pm Edict Public House Forum 4” on Sat 29 Oct.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Note that “The 9pm Edict Public House Forum 4” will NOT be recorded in Sydney this Sat 15 Oct. I’ll focus on Melbourne instead.

@SnarkyPlatypus @jpwarren There’s the US series too, by the way, so I assume Shelley Birse will be involved somehow.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jpwarren Roth is a very complex character indeed. Whereas Lara Dixon is just evil. And the foreign minister makes a transition. Go her.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@SnarkyPlatypus @jpwarren Though now that you ask that, I’ll make certain enquiries.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus @jpwarren The long arc is certainly open to a third series, but that’ll be an ABC decision, probably not until the new year.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jpwarren I see what you mean, but the overall arc is about the shifting moral stance of the key characters.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

I finally got around to watching the final episode of “The Code” last night. I think the cyber ending worked rather well.

Victory over the Machines!

Hurrah! The thing that seemed to work has seemed to work for a second time! I am a fucking genius! (Except for doing this on a Sunday.)

via TweetDeck

@munin Yes, a delay in calendar items going from my Mac to Google Calendar, then a delay before WordPress pulls them down. Much crying.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

Hurrah! Something seemed to work! I think some weird-arse bullshit caching problem was being problematic.

via TweetDeck

Maybe I’ll just set fire to all the things.

via TweetDeck

@munin Thanks. There is a troubleshooting procedure to follow. At least the WP plugin devs have good documentation.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin Thanks. I’m just trying to pull out a calendar via the API and stuff it into WordPress. I think it’s a WordPress cache problem.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

@munin Requires knitting needles inserted deeply into both ears, and wiggled. I have no idea what I’m doing.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

I probably shouldn’t have tried setting up something on Google Cloud Platform before breakfast. I am an arsehat.

via TweetDeck

@indigoid There’s more than just going to the con. I’ll post a more details today or tomorrow, ‘cos the rough version was maybe too rough.
