No idea how to delete a status update on @Linkedin@twitter.com. Fifteen years on the site, still haven’t a bloody clue about the logic behind its interface.

You can order pigs' ears at Cha. Thank goodness there are places in Wellington where you can get normal food now.

Incredibly clever ‘page not found’ at Peugeot.

Is it me or is particularly sucky tonight with every fourth to fifth entry an ad? Might have to go off-app to avoid the ads. Also booze ads still appear despite them being switched off permanently in (which means Instagram lies about its ad settings).

When I first saw Batman Begins, I thought it was meh. Now with the passage of time, I think it’s meh.

Sad to learn that Koro Wētere, CBE (Ngāti Maniapoto) has passed away.

Moment of levity I remember: when he sent a telegram to Billy T. James to say Billy was not the new Minister of Māori Affairs (as announced on a sketch), and signed it ‘Uncle Koro’.

Seven seasons of Hawai'i Five-O, and no one figured out she was a Cylon.

Surprised we’re only up to season 6 of Hawai'i Five-0. Going to be a while till we see Kiwi-born Samoan actor Beulah Koale (who replaces Daniel Dae Kim) as one of the leads.

Since I’m neither Sam Neill nor hold public office, rather than Tweet a congratulatory message, tonight it seemed more sincere to go straight to the PM’s Instagram and comment along with thousands of others in the ‘village’.

In my blog: As the most experienced long-video Instagrammer, welcome to the club dlvr.it/QY1x07

Nothing new here, I’ve been able to do (nearly) 10-minute videos on Instagram since April, on the regular app. (Link via @happyfishmedia@twitter.com.) news.cgtn.com/news/3d3d674e355

When TV1 said Baby Clarcinda was 3·31 kg, I (and I am sure a whole bunch of people over a certain age) was going, ‘I have no idea if that’s a big or a little baby.’

(She’s 7 lb 5 oz in old money.)

Thinking about using Mastodon as my main social network, with automated Toots going to Twitter.

Yes, I know they meant it is now the Manawatu–Whanganui Regional Council, but that’s not how the piece was introduced.

I may have recalled this wrongly, but I’m sure I heard the radio news say that the Horizons Regional Council has officially opted to adopt an h in its spelling. Had no idea it used to be the Orizons Regional Council.
