  • @josephgrossberg I’d like to talk NRC/TDD but since I cannot MSG you *shrug* HeyHo, and so it goes. signed, sihly aulde drunk #
  • 7.1B … was that EU or US$? my my my, nice to know banks have intelligently implemented BPM. Nothing for me to do, nope nope. #
  • NBT? D&D that allows macros. (Not a chance; no need, with toyz. FWIW I used WP5.1 and AWK in MIL-SPEC R&D *sez the aulde drunk*.) #
  • What a waste of space CA is. 18 minutes ago I had 15 feeds filtered. Now "Fetch Feed" fails. Yaaaa right. Fuckers are eating sushi in caf’. #
  • Things CA are like dealing with over-bred poodles. "Water bowl" … "Bowl", "Water", join! Yesss, gooood yuppie! #
  • Pipes! output Preview fails. Reinstall each and every single feed. All good! *clap hands, scratch ass, wipe nose, repeat* #
  • NB: if Yahoo!Pipes HQ is in OR then all is forgiven … I know anarcho-geeks are unreliable, but I’d trust them w/my life. (cliff climb?) #
  • Q; is software /in any sense/ fractal? *Warning – this is a trick quiestion.* #
  • All functions Fail. When I was young, I’d spend Fri. night producing $20K-$50K of IT. Now, with toyz, waste my fucking time. Grande? #
  • p.s. do 7 man/years work in 2.5 yrs … do the arithmuhtik #
  • RFE: zoom out in Pipes! Because everything’s gone to shit, I need to go from Input 1 to Output. Can’t … too big. #toyz #
  • Time for TV. 1st London Review of Books was swamping other feeds. Now? 0 output, though it validats. I fucking hate the industry. #
  • Problem found: the pipe is fine … the DeBug output is bullshit. *clap hands; scratch ass; wipe nose; repeat* #
  • !Funny: step by step I have to ignore "Preview Failed" in DeBug output. I peek the feed, and step by step, better. Someone got $$ for toyz #
  • Now http://opendemocracy.org/xml/rss/home/index.xml doesn’t respond. #toyz #
  • Has /anybody/ run latency tests on services? This is crap, folks. The intertubes is like somesorta ecstasy puppy-pile … foolish. #
  • "Cat" is 16. Q: what should I expect from him regarding sociability and manners? *Warning – trick question* #
  • !Prob I hacked Soviet birds&subs you didn’t. Prob: raised kids? climbed cliffs? rode bikes? busked? split wood? lit fires? Dang … ‘sup? #
  • *Looking forward to clapping and scratching my ass and picking my nose, and I tweet this cuz I’m A-list so it matters* *Gack Ptui!* #
  • @hrheingold "Since when did I ever do anything for the bucks?" Good sir, you need a court jester; your "friends" serve you poorly. #
  • I say I didn’t buy that cottage on the coastal cliffs of OR cuz y’all have crazy gun laws. I lie. I didn’t cuz y’all are Americans. *sorry* #
  • 3 times I edited FeedBurner details. Still wrong. *Fuck!* My dad died when I was 7 … what the fuck is /your/ problem?! #
  • @ink_slinger We haven’t talked. It’s as though we’re in seperate cities; the AB dynamic. I /am/ angry. Punk yuppie kidz’ software sux. #
  • @bear It pains me that Matt is soooo busy. WP + WordPerfect macro programming language = world rule. #
  • What’s 300MHz Win98SE good for? 2 hrs on Pipes! = > http://snipurl.com/1xsg5 < but 2 minutes on FeedBurner locks me up hard. #
  • Study of Bush / senior aides’ 935 pre-war lies > http://snipurl.com/1y3bm < "War Card" > http://snipurl.com/1y3c2 < (Condi’ … #
  • @factoryjoe You wudda loved PoWow. #
  • No need for kidz to go to Davos for Marie Antoinette treatment, they only need to lust for a job with google! (Karik? Scobble?) #
  • @dpn URL for torrent? #
  • Q to my US "friends". Since justice is for $ale in your country, how can you hold your heads up? Nothing more. Just that. #
  • This is twitter, right? And tweets don’t count for much, right? Ok: truth … I’m a very very very good sniper. That means skill+patience. #
  • Don’t know the "Hillsborough Boys"? Don’t know John Grisham? So, really, Web2.0 is your licence to unfeterred ignorace. Ass!=star dip.shit. #
  • @davewiner Isn’t "pre-impeach" just shuck and jive? That’s a lotta cred to demean, Mr. Winer. #
  • @yourdon Ed, I’m right gun-shy after a time with NSA and such. How about we corral "discourse" and "dialectic"? Just BPM w/twist. Say you? #
  • Dig: Grisham is wealthy from sales of .25B books yet talks of "risk" from speaking out. Americans are in.sane . simply that. #borg #matrix #
  • @yourdon I think last time I got foul.ball with you was when I asked about Steve Ciarcia. Older than the Stones, you say? *grin* #
  • *an aulde drunk repeats* Q: is software in any sense "fractal"? (Steve Martin gets it. You could too. It’s called authenticity. Do. Or not. #
  • "Cat", 16, is now with the living dead. My proddings have confirmed male bladder problems. I did the Tibetan ritual. *Om!Mane.Padme.Hum!* #
  • @philcrissman huh huh … eye on the ball, ayup. "Pri-order", we called that, back in the bad old days when shit mattered. ^5 #
  • @factoryjoe The header’s boilerplate ads triggered my gag instinct. I know y’all find that just fine; I’m old. CBC &tc. FWIW. Aulde drunk. #
  • "XYZ was named to Red Herring’s list of ‘25 Titans in waiting’ in early 2007" Holy fuck, I guess I should just STFU. #
  • huh huh huh Scott’s good: he paried XRDS and came back with yet.another acronym. *snort* #
  • If "simple always works" then why are you yuppie kidz so allergic to discourse? Nothing simpler. Nothing. Camp-fire simple. *evuhl grin* #
  • "Gee, I’d like to be in charge of your ZipCode. Or your Avatar. Is that okay?" *!BEHIND ME, SATAN!* Guys? Don’t be feckless twits. Don’t. #
  • @jjprojects 1708 we landed in Quebec. 1704 in Acadia. Dunno about "X day", but every day is a good day for home-brew beer. c{_} #
  • @marshallk "Self-directed" c/w a) cell-phone, b) connectivity, c) 1.2GHz+ etc etc … it’s a loyalty test bro’ … c’mon … Darwinian. #
  • @marshallk Oh-wooops, forgot the gold-standard: credit card. #
  • The battle lines, despite yuppies’ kidz existential dismissal, have been drawn for some years. Income disparity. Stuned? Sorry .. your bad. #
  • Advantages: I am merely drunk, while those around me are /fucked/. I did MIL-SPEC for years, also busking for years. Not a fair fight. #
  • Q: Is "mutual admiration" always foolish? A: Nope. Dig > http://snipurl.com/1ya0e < lovely interview. Frenz w/frenz. #

  • Hey, puppy: 2002 I started (reluctantly) on blogspot. Read an honest man’s blogroll: http://mozdawg.blogspot.com #
  • Integrity: word and deed coincide. CA: explicate the finest while acting like a cocaine whore. #
  • Dig : "Look out, cuz soon I’ll be able to afford to host my own world on the the web, and THEN lookout!" #braindamage #matrix #bord #

  • Total 4 hrs working with Pipes! Mashable, Digg, even RWW, they all thrash my rig. But you’ll let Yahoo get fucked up the ass … just cuz. #
  • 2 kinds of folk: the fucked up wannabe-hippies, and the yuppies who just watched. (Oh-wooops, then there’s us. Is that 3? Yaa. 3. Fractal?) #
  • w/respect to the assembled horde; doesn’t this seem just plain fatuous as a tweet: "I’ve yet to find a failsafe way of overcoming jetlag." #
  • OMG look at me, I am such a jet-setter I now nothing about jetlag … ain’t I speshull? Honest to Christ! Who you patronizing?! #
  • NOW HEAR THIS: ALL HANDS WILL GRAB A FUCKING BRAIN. #

  • Day after day I’m reminded why 95% of the world’s population is in blood-lust for Amerkkka … snotty priggish twits, thou art. #
  • And for the fucking record I /know/ the skateboard pre-dates my invention. Shove it where the sun don’t shine, sophist. #
  • /Whirls, tossing djembe, freaking out Cat, straps on dumbek and latches onto alto recorder, wishing he’d punched in sub-woofer/ #
  • @elsua Hey bro’? What ever happened to "Boarding in a few minutes". It’s a plane, not crossing the Red Sea. ‘sup? #
  • @blaine Shiet mahn, citrus is potent … never w/breakfast (B12 … yog, yaa?) and /never/ within sight of wine! *Eeeew!* ok.fine, w/vodka #
  • /me 54, doing dervish thing at 2AM, looking back over week’s diet (8 litres of ale) … "1 glass of OJ wudda killed me!" #
  • Oh, did I mention that my life’s goal is to talk to yuppies’ kidz w/o loosing _vipassana_? Yaa. Mebbe I’m that lame. Mebbe they’re that … #
  • Yahoo!Pipes "AceBlogs’Feed" up to beta > http://snipurl.com/1xsg5 < … there’s gotta be a way of getting OPML in there w/o CSV. #
  • @notaphysicist Everything I know about guru / student relationship I learned from whassisname, the dolphin guy. Later, ethology. #
  • @dahowlett I worked with our version of the Enigma machine … betcha that counts for nothing at all. Am I wrong? 0_o #
  • Once upon a time we needed secrecy. Now? Not a bit. Everyone is /totally/ mind-fried. "Continuous partial attention"; "social objects" pfft #
  • @notaphysicist After studying quadratics, you look in dictionary? Please, please, tell my you were looking into etymology. #
  • Yuppie kidz’ software is such trash … 99.5% buzz … filtered by pub-time, 3rd item in feed is from Digg, 11 f’n days ago. #toyz #
  • @dahowlett "I’ve no particular view" Ah. A moment ago, it was an artifact of interest. Now, _no se_. *shrug* The crowd luvzya. *shrug* #
  • @dahowlett But hark! There’s a parallelism here … last time, it was my mention of beer, to which you were "Oh, 24/7" and then "huh?" #
  • NB: whether it’s home-brew beer or CODE-WORD hardware, it’s always just "social objects", null and void except for A-list valuation. #borg #
  • I just explored a rather elaborate Drupal-style CMS. It left me more convicted than ever: CA is seriously brain-fucked. #
  • After all that, Rick Ellis isn’t even on Twitter. I mean … really … WTF … #
  • @Scobleizer You know, I indulge in self-deprecation as a literary device. But you and your friends? Trust: words don’t fail me … 140 … #
  • @Scobleizer p.s. as one brain-damaged CA savant put it, "When you listen only to your audience, you lose sight of …" That serves you? #
  • What the word for CA yuppies? Folk who are literate, energetic, perky, creative, and entirely blank … callow? cavalier? *long-lived gods* #
  • @dahowlett ’96 and ’97 we had that sorta thing happening. ‘cept you didn’t need to register for comment. #
  • @dahowlett Now … http://qik.com/video/10263 … that’s the sorta existentiality everyone should find foundational. We need it. #
  • @Scobleizer "It’s fun hanging out at Davos" I’m quite sure you could get to WSF instead. We created IndyGlobal. Your sort ignore that. #
  • *Look at me! I’m live in Davos! I’m drinking champagne! @’ me so you can be on my radar!" Callow? Cavalier? What’s the word I need … #
  • /me ponders "Scoble" and "fair" in the same sentence … tries again … w/respect, tries again … #
  • @RobinGood TU for link; 3AM I just put Ry Cooder on and poured another tankard to get "Davos" out of my craw. cheers ^5 #
  • Charisma … the A-list really doesn’t have a clue. But A-list they are. #
  • Folk use the web to escape time and place? to talk about tech from Davos w/o ref to ethics? Ah-lha. Kye.ho. A dark age indeed. #
  • A perfectly lovely Yahoo!Pipe, and I can’t get a single sort to work. What part of "Sort by dc:date" means "Hop, skip, and jump randomly"? #
