@SnarkyPlatypus You’re only bemused at us humans because you have more nipples than we do. ;)

Rose Bay police responded to a complaint from anti-child-abuse campaigner. Needed to be seen to be responding. Did they aim to be shot down?

@Mediamum “Does media like this a: attract pedophiles, b: create pedophiles, c: form a release for pedophiles d: none?” This is the core Q!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

Retweet @andrewbarnett: “news.com.au blacking out nipples on henson images is explicitly casting the images as sexual” Agreed. Adds badness.

@dedlam Morning! Would this photo be considered “obscene” in China, do you think? http://is.gd/lnN Causing furore here. http://is.gd/los

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

@kcarruthers Shock jocks never suggest that you INFORM yourself before expressing outrage. They’re outraged, you must too. Think as I think.

Crikey’s eurovision form guide. Tacky. Of course. http://is.gd/loJ

What’s sad? When anti-child-abuse campaigners attack art they make themselves look foolish and weaken their case against the REAL bad guys.

@andrewdotnich Lots of commentary on Bill Henson’s work and “meaning” online. He’s a major international photographer. “Beauty” is a start.

@franksting Anyone who finds Bill Henson’s photos to be “sexual” are the ones to worry about, IMO. It says something about THEIR sexuality.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@kcarruthers I stopped listening to AM talk radio “outrage” the day I stopped producing it. ;) Manufacturing outage is toooooooo easy.

@ccastano You’re in Europe, you “get” art. Aust has conservative backlash like US. UK report: http://is.gd/los Aus comment: http://is.gd/lot

@leslien Ah! So you’re admitting to somehow being behind the spoiler, eh? I just KNEW you were a complete bastard.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting I understand parental protectiveness, that’s healthy. But let’s base “It’ll encourage the pedophiles” on evidence, not paranoia.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

To complain about ABC New spoiler go to http://is.gd/lol and address complaint to Online News Editor. More people is better.

@andrewsayer Well, when the goddam spacecraft is tweeting too, one does have to pay attention. Next mission, we want REAL tweets from Mars.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewsayer

Timeline of Australia’s space age: http://is.gd/6KK Slightly snarky.

via Twitter Web Client

Post from 2006: “Why the US space program is shite”: http://is.gd/lFj Just so we put a downer on this space stuff…

via Twitter Web Client

@MarsPhoenix I think it’s quite sweet that you still run on California time. Total ignorance of global society FTW!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MarsPhoenix

Internet geeks can watch space geeks live at NASA TV. http://is.gd/3YX Bloody exciting, people looking at screens.

via Twitter Web Client

@allisonr Except @MarsPhoenix is slightly too cheerful, I think. It needs a touch of grumpiness too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to allisonr

@BernardK It’s physical damage to the power connector (aluminium dents easily!), continuing to degrade. Maybe cracked motherboard. Details.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to 19bk69

OK, the good news is that the brick works (24V FTW!) and PowerBook G4 has been persuaded to charge. New Macbook Pro can wait until tomorrow.

@andrewbarnett NASA uses SI units, but they translate into American for, um, Americans.

via Twitter Web Client

@MarsPhoenix If you fuck up that propellant pressurisation procedure, God help me, I will come out there and slap you!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to MarsPhoenix

And now the fun part. Did my Powerbook’s power brick die? Or the motherboard power controller? Multimeter ahoy! (Twittering from server.)

via Twitter Web Client

@babycakesjase OK, you’re following me too now, Exactly what did happen on the weekend? ;) Welcome to my Twitterworld, please be careful.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to babycakesjase

@mcluhan8 Hi Tom, and welcome to you too. Long time no see. You’ll see far, far too much of me this way. Fish notwithstanding.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mcluhan8

@andrewsayer Welcome to my Twitterworld. I think you’ll find it easier to cope with today than across the weekend. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to andrewsayer

@andrewbarnett Have found even v2 to be reliable, but that’s hardware version. Software updates from Netgear can solve stability problems.

via Twitter Web Client

@andrewbarnett Netgear DG834G is usually pretty reliable. Have you made sure you’re using current firmware?

via Twitter Web Client

Emerging. Russia. Russia explains everything.

via Twitter Web Client

@Alegrya Hugs promised. And a happy ending…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

Dear Twitterverse, can haz Apple 45W power brick for PowerBook NOW to test if that’s what’s died?

via Cloudhopper

OK, my power supply has just died, I have 2.5 hours of battery life left, perhaps. Life is… annoying.

via Twitter Web Client

Pls can haz feedback on whether you can hear my audio at http://stilgherrian.com/… …?

@Fifikins You look FAR too cheerful with idea of that cane toad’s impending frozen death. http://is.gd/lrP

@TimNoonan Twitter going through a database rebuild right now. “Older” button appears, but with inaudible rollover to say it’s not active.

@al3x Ah I see your problem there at Twitter. You’ve got whales clogging everything up. Just clean out those goddam whales!

@garthk There were also a few shells fired into Sydney by Japanese subs offshore, including those that launched the midget subs.

I keep confusing Godwin’s Law http://is.gd/lqS with Metcalfe’s Law http://is.gd/lqR and they’re not quite the same.

@MarsPhoenix Good luck with the final approach, brave little explorer. (Hat-tip to @rosshill.)

@a_makohon “Reboot” from “pulling oneself up by one’s own bootstraps”. How does a computer load its first program? It needs a program first.

@SnarkyPlatypus Don’t say “smell like teen spirit” or the Rose Bay police will arrest you for pornography.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Your presence in this memestream is far too prominent! http://is.gd/lq3 As is mine.

@SRindler Welcome to my Twitterworld! Happy to follow someone whose bio reads: “It’s time you realized the futility of everyone’s efforts.”

via Twitter Web Client

@JoshAnstey Actually I *don’t* want Twitter to get fixed “quickly”. I want it to get fixed properly”. ;) Less haste = better result.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoshAnstey

@dedlam Thanks for China angle. In Europe, of course, Henson would be a complete non-issue. Australia becomes more like US daily. Alas.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to dedlam

Retweet @dedlam Henson’s photos prob never reach public in China. “Minister of Culture… censors anything inappropriate with wide powers.”

via Twitter Web Client

@Mediamum Oh there are even mashups: Google Maps showing sex offenders in your neighbourhood! Be afraid! Be always afraid! Buy things now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Mediamum

@ApostrophePong just posted http://is.gd/lp6 and Google Ads showed links to child sex offender registers. Now suddenly no Google Ads at all!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@kcarruthers Hetty would be rent-an-outrage. Guaranteed to give good quote. We had a few of them at ABC, an animal rights guy especially.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Retweet @andrewbarnett: “M’lady offered the view she’d rather pedophiles got their jollies playing Nintendo Babiez than with real babies.”

Should PM Kevin Rudd have given an opinion on Bill Henson photos? http://is.gd/loZ

I should say, this discussion of the Bill Henson photos is giving me PLENTY of material for my own article. ;)
