Twitter updates for 2008-03-11

  • An hour on the phone fries one’s brain, even when it’s with a good friend and colleague and "delivered good outcomes". #
  • I wish people would stop sending me interesting things to read. Just for an hour or so, so I can make a client a bit happier. #
  • Apparently yesterday was "Commonwealth Day". Did this actually have any relevant to anyone? #
  • We can all give up this web development and media stuff now, check these guys! http://www.ebaumsworld.com/video/watch/239803/ #
  • Hmmm… reducing a client to tears just how wasn’t quite the intended outcome. And there isn’t a field for that in my CRM system… #
  • How daft is MYOB? Just sent me a promo fax (3 copies!), headed "Start the year fresh". START? It’s the MIDDLE of MARCH! FAIL! #
  • @NickHodge Which "data gone"? MYOB’s of the tear-filled client? #
  • @NickHodge Data OK. Had kept morn free for client, but no call. Now committed until day’s end. They called wanting instant fix. I vented. #
  • @mpesce No, children of your cousins are "cousins once removed". #
  • Twitter is excellent. Instead of having to look up Wikipedia, you just ask here and someone else looks it up for you. #
  • Hey this so-called "National Binge Drinking Strategy" is to STOP binge drinking! WTF? #
  • @Fifikins Re Westpac ATMs, you may like this little sketch then… http://youtube.com/watch?v=OAknJSsXQRY #
  • Hmmm… is there any way to FORCE Twitter to use something like tinyurl.com, even if the URL fits into the message? #
  • @zhasper "Michelle the bank-slut" LOLZ. Yeah her logic is shitty. Offers a receipt and then says I can’t have one so there. Ignorant bitch. #
  • @mpesce Careful what you say, or you’ll end up sounding like what I write. 😉 #
  • About to disconnect the client-whinge feed… #
  • @aglick35 Hi, new Twitterstalker(tm)! I hope you find something entertaining, controversial or at least mildly erotic. #
  • OK, already I don’t like seeing a daily digest of my tweets. Too scary! http://tinyurl.com/2mwv2u #
  • @NickHodge Don’t worry, you fucking bastard, I’d never censorship myself! Arsehole! #
  • @Fifikins Just take a deep breath and remember, with Westpac we’re… saving penguins or something. With harmonica music. #
  • Ah! Absinthe and Bickfords Lime works quite nicely. Genius! #
  • @NickHodge My pleasure. There’s a few more words I can use, if you like. Some of them are truly excellent. #
  • What’s wrong with this headline? "Govt invites sports chiefs to binge drinking conference." [smirks] http://tinyurl.com/33pwdb #
  • @Fifikins This is what you need then! http://www.cyberhymnal.org/htm/c/r/crownhim.htm Crown HIm with Many Crowns! And lots lots more! #
  • @Fifikins Oh dear! I Keep running into choristers! And I wasn’t even a Catholic! #
  • @NickHodge The LOLbible has already been started, running on MediaWiki somewhere.\ #
  • Indeed the lolcatbible is at http://www.lolcatbible.com/ and I blogged about it 9 October: http://stilgherrian.com/religion/lolbible/ #
  • 1. Oh hai. In teh beginnin Ceiling Cat maded teh skiez An da Urfs, but he did not eated dem. #
  • 2 Da Urfs no had shapez An haded dark face, An Ceiling Cat rode invisible bike over teh waterz. #
  • @kcarruthers @kcarruthers nickhodge I am a prophet to my people! #
  • @NickHodge Thoroughly agreed re the importance of Ada Lovelace and Alan Turing, but sorry, never could get into the nasal, droney NZers. #
  • @kcarruthers Sorry, but as a Discordian I am forbidden to believe anything I read. All hail Eris! #
  • @crispin_harris @vandra Twitter needs a wall-to-wall display mode – though certainly not in this specific instance. #
  • OK, Twitterverse, you are my moral compass. Should I have another drink before bed? #
  • @Fifikins Didn’t think Catholics did the Bible? Catholics will do ANYTHING. And you don’t even need to buy them a drink first. #
  • @kcarruthers Oh, yes, I quite frequently commit random acts of discord. What’s "DS9"? #
  • @bronwen ‘Pong http://www.outtospace.com 😛 #
  • @bronwen Yep, that’s @ApostrophePong and his current obsession with abandoned furniture. The portfolio is more representative though. #
  • I find it very scary that I’m at least acquainted with 6 of the Top 100 at Tweeterboard. #
