  • 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 #
  • 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! #
  • 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. #
