  • 08:55 @rbuerckner who declares #swineflu pandemic? That’s what I’m trying to find out! #
  • 11:05 Our school is renovating the toilets – see www.bog-standard.org/ for ideas. Why isn’t Biogas www.adelaide.edu.au/biogas/ here? #

  • 16:17 To replace a Powerbook G4 15" with a Macbook Air or MacBook Pro 15", that is the question. Worried about screen real estate on teh Air. #
  • 17:02 @agronaught Awesome fun you’re having with the EEE – Will be interested to see how Missuses and kiddies find the size & power … #
  • 17:20 Thx @trib & @SociallyCubed – votes for MBP noted. No-one is voting Air, which is interesting. Also an SD reader means I’d clear my pics more #
  • 18:06 Time to put my head down and sort my tax out. If I go astray in the next 72 hrs perhaps you could point me back on course? #

  • 15:53 @jpoh @decryption @garthk depends which bus Apple have the SD reader on inside the MacBooks. Most likely on the USB bus (along w/isight etc) #
  • 16:01 @jpoh @decryption @garthk Actually Apple state "maximum speed of 240 Mbit/s for SD media using the SD card slot" #
  • 16:04 Well the ASX 200 looks to close today around 4018. Shows how much my short term guesses are good for πŸ™‚ #
  • 16:19 My screensaver is a slideshow from my Flickr friends – but @alegrya is so comparatively prolific it might as well just be her pics πŸ™‚ #
