  • 01:02 @misswired I’m regularly in that part of the world (and never knew about Fireworks foods!) So could drop by if needed. #
  • 01:04 Fireworks Foods. Online. Based in North Rocks. Chilli sauces, Mexican products & Spices!! Awesome. Who knew? (@zbender did) #
  • 02:17 looking at is.gd/4QXTS instructions for how to setup a staging site for wordpress #
  • 03:07 Aww rats. I can’t seem to get bit.ly/3BGauZ working on WP 2.8.5 – why would wiping the dashboard help? #

  • 15:58 .@scoutsact has some great Twitter lists for Scouting – twitter.com/scoutsact/lists #
  • 16:01 Twitter lists are great and all – what’s the solution for ‘canonical’ lists? Interesting problem. #
  • 16:04 Seeing who has a key Twitter account in what list is a good way to discover things : twitter.com/ScoutsAustralia/lists/memberships #
  • 17:46 Applejack is something that makes you sad when you need it and it hasn’t been installed yet. I’m a sad panda. #
  • 19:12 @jodiem that’s a great GAFYD & WordPress solution. Very tempting indeed. Still banging my head on the self-hosted version ;) #
  • 19:42 Bugger. On time to pick up the boy from rock band rehearsal – didn’t you get the message? "Finishing at 8pm & having pizza." No. Did. Not. #

  • 12:22 RT @davewiner: Internet Archive’s S3-like server API. Yes, they really did it. Claims to be a free clone of S3 … r2.ly/mzgk #
  • 15:15 While Miss 9’s ankle is healing from last week’s sprain, her sinuses are worse. Doctor visit today wins us CT scan & specialist referral #fb #
  • 15:45 @Bel sure it is, lite milk makes *anything* healthy. Out of interest – how does one make a nutella milkshake? #
  • 16:20 is there a good wordpress plugin to allow user registration/authentication from Google (preferably google apps on my domain)? #
  • 16:53 @Bel too easy ;) #
  • 16:54 @Froosh there seemed to be a couple of likely candidates when I searched wp.com but I was hoping for a recommendation first. Will test. #
  • 20:42 @micmerty I’ve found ‘DVR Lite’ works on Aussie TiVo as remote control & to see now playing – what are you using? #
  • 20:56 @micmerty aha … Great when you get it going! Don’t use it that way myself. Check out pytivo for sending stuff onto your TiVo. #

  • 15:14 @micmerty Sweet – the extra drive space really is a must as soon as you have a few movies saved forever. Enjoy TiVo & use the thumbs up/dwn! #

  • 21:15 @TessaFroosh No we’re not down for #AJ2010, just Mr 12. #

  • 15:54 Darn, 7-eleven Strathfield has ‘run out’ of #freeslurpee ! #
  • 16:10 Happy 7-Eleven day! twitpic.com/oksnn #freeslurpee #
  • 16:44 .@slurpeeOz Happy 7-Eleven day! My daughter & I at Burwood, NSW : #freeslurpee twitpic.com/okws1 #
  • 16:48 @jokay Sorry to hear the sad news #
  • 17:23 Found @ianwoolf while waiting for the Ashfield 7-Eleven’s back in 5 sign to come down. Moar #freeslurpee :-) #
  • 17:44 @Froosh you get unappreciative crowds sometimes … What training are you doing? #
  • 17:46 @limburger2001 thanks – we had a late start & Miss 9 is on crutches so we’ll only get five stores done I reckon. Fun though :) #freeslurpee #
  • 18:12 … and Five Dock makes five (7-Eleven’s visited, 4 with slurpees for us) #freeslurpee Now for some lunch, err, dinner! #
  • 18:33 Whoops, 7-Eleven at Drummoyne on Victoria Road. #freeslurpee number five. Plenty of cups left too! #
  • 20:10 @PeterBlackQUT A mac monk & proud of it (naturally) since 1986 #
  • 20:19 Hadn’t seen the cat for nearly a day, on a hunch I opened the garage – out came a grey flash, heading for the food bowl! #
  • 21:52 @jambled I just heard fireworks around Homebush … Spooky. No idea exactly where though. #

  • 10:55 Awesomely late start to the day, d’oh! #
  • 11:47 @IanWoolf apparently a good idea since it already has a life of it’s own :-) #armsyd #
  • 11:49 @brentcu SuperBowl has been broadcast here for many years, now with extra digital channels to fill, TEN show the Sunday/Monday night games #
  • 11:50 @piawaugh "when you help somebody / you can’t help helping yourself!" brilliant lyric #avenueQ #
  • 13:14 Yay! RT @IanWoolf via @nambor: It’s raining in Bondi so we’re postponing #ARMSyd – vote for a new time that suits tr.im/ARMeetupSyd #
  • 13:33 @jodiem reckon I’ll check top ryde out tonight along with Target that opens at Rhodes (ikea) today #
  • 15:35 RT @Warlach I would love to see #IWantFreeCheese to become a trending topic in honour of @Annabelcrabb #Media140 #
  • 15:38 [enters the Cheese shop] #IWantFreeCheese #
  • 16:14 I’ve been handed a playing-card size block of ‘platinum’ – how to check it? I was thinking calculate the volume & see if the weight matches? #
  • 16:29 @IanWoolf approximations should be fine to start. So how to do this n a kitchen? How do I find the target weight? #
  • 16:34 Kitchen scales test comes up light – bar claims to be 32 ounces troy but weighs approx 830 grams (expected 995 grams) #
  • 16:44 @IanWoolf measuring errors indeed. Old 70’s kitchen scales do not inspire confidence. Maybe try scales in fruit section at supermarket? #
  • 17:00 Here’s a great article on testing potential counterfeit platinum bars, with calculations! ow.ly/zouc #
  • 17:11 Now measuring the bar with these digital calipers I have handy. Not sure if I have accurate enough volume containers for displacement. #
  • 17:21 Going by the numbers, the ‘platinum’ bar I have here should mass 2kg, but a quick check shows 830g. Checking common densities, it is brass. #
  • 18:04 To keep the Archimedes fans happy (@ericscheid) I’ve done a rough displacement test. That gives 115 ml, vs calipers measure 93.95 cubic cm #
  • 19:18 @nonspecialist could be all sorts of things really. The one thing I’m sure of – it isn’t platinum. Glad it isn’t my money :-) #
  • 21:13 @kristydarby write them cranky pants on then! Remember it is all about the volume :) You can do it. #nanowrimo #
  • 21:28 @jodiemoule they are extraordinary facts, with more to come. Flabbergasted at #addictedtomoney #
  • 22:17 @matpacker did you upgrade the internal drive or add external storage to your mini? #
  • 22:34 Channel 7 up their old tricks on new 72 channel – Stargate Atlantis ran 14 minutes overtime. Why the frak shouldn’t we download? Frakkers! #
  • 22:57 @glasses_direct 42 pairs of course! #
  • 23:01 @franksting have you tried @glasses_direct? #
  • 23:01 @glasses_direct oh noes, 43 then #
  • 23:42 @franksting sure do – there’s a few good cheap sites that do. @headwellred has had success with Zenni Optical. #
