@jeffsonstein Twitter certainly had throughput improvements over last fortnight. Not fast enough for live radio,… maybe OK for conference.

@Limburger LOL! No, “sticky white nightcap” is not a euphemism. ;) It’s a Gramps 2004 Botrytus Semillon.

@servantofchaos “Are you calling a betacam vs VHS clash?” No, don’t think mobile platform has to be only one dominant player. May revise.

@garthk I remember the day CH and I found an obvious firewall/DNS flaw in one of the major online casinos. We chose not to pursue it.

@jeffsonstein That said, most proposals are “This is what we want to do, now we need to document the justification.”

@NathanaelB ROFL! No, there was a lot more than that one 22-page memo before setting of the nukes. Still…

@garthk I have only just been introduced to @MissRFTC’s work, alas I know nothing about her methodology.

@trib Swinburne report has plenty of quotable numbers. Stats less old /conservative than ACMA/ABS due to faster turnaround.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib I haven’t actually READ the Swinburne report yet. I tend to tweet what I find before going back to digest.
