@NathanaelB I will piss on whatever and whomsoever I choose, thank you, young man! :P

@SnarkyPlatypus Crikey is one big urine sample. Especially on Fridays.

Crikey article written. Bladder emptied.

@garthk OK, I am now following @lowflyingrocks because, like, my paranoia levels are nowhere near high enough.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@broady Maybe it doesn’t matter if anyone sees, but I’d have thought that if you were committing a crime then discretion would hold winnage.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to broady

@WarWraith What’s the matter, Wendy? You seem upset…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to WarWraith

@DenubisX Yes the Crikey commenting hoop-jump is almost an Olympic event now. :/

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DenubisX

It’s funny how guys dressed as drug dealers with drug dealers’ cars making an exchange that looks like a drug deal imagine that no-one sees.

via Twitter Web Client

@DenubisX If I appear to be relevant, they may pay me more money. Like @firstdogonmoon.

@SnarkyPlatypus “Hello. I’m from the Gin Storage Equalisation Agency and I understand you have a problem with excess gin. I can help.”

RT @pixel8ted: I thought the obvious evidence that comm radio is shitting itself was personified in Kyle and Jackie O. real mouth breathers.

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat Well if Crikey think people read my blog they might invite me to http://blogs.crikey.com…. … if I stop swearing. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

Anyway, if people want to talk about Internet censorship, please post at Crikey http://is.gd/4G1p so I look relevant. ;)

WS-FM’s spin on Rees’ new transport plan announcement: NW suburbs “abandoned”. I guess we’ll see the tumbleweeds soon…

[smirks] That 30-day policy has been in place since 2004, just without COMPUL.SORY penalty interest clauses http://is.gd/4GsC

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus There is something reassuring about using “liver” and “odyssey” in the same sentence.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Wow! Small-business suppliers to govt (under $1M) will be paid within 30 days or govt pays interest! http://is.gd/4Gsb

@plasmaegg You raise a good point: What is the granularity of a filter? An IP address? A site? A Twitter account? An individual post?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@oliyoung I’m with you on all of that except one thing: it should not be government-funded.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@nickhac Oh commercial radio is shitting itself. Its ad roster is full of erectile dysfunction and ambulance-chasing lawyers. A cheap motel.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to nickhac

Anyway, enough about Internet filtering from me today! @SnarkyPlatypous has vodka and I don’t, and that’s just wrong.

via Twitter Web Client

If ignorant and lazy parents want someone else to do their work for them, then they can pay for it and the market will provide. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

@oliyoung “The govt should encourage and promote those who do.” Ooohh no! The govt should NOT be promoting any partic thought-comms regime!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

How much does ACMA spend NOW just dealing with the completely-and-utterly-illegal stuff? How long to respond?

via Twitter Web Client

There’s also the entire administrative aspect. Your legit site was blocked by the govt. How long does it take to fix? What will this cost?

via Twitter Web Client

@wolfcat And the 2% false-positive and false-negative rates are the BEST filters, the ones which killed performance the most.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wolfcat

@oliyoung Neither should we dump them into the online world and expect some automated government babysitter to do parents’ work for them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@oliyoung John Brimingham got this right in January. http://is.gd/16K1 We don’t dump our kids on the street and expect govt to protect them.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@oliyoung Well I contend that filters are “next to useless” FULL STOP, but at least doing on the client means the rest of us don’t suffer.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@oliyoung @plasmaegg No, filtering at ISP is wrong. One home, one Internet link, can be shared by people with very different filter needs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

@plasmaegg AFAIK the Internet filtering thang comes from placating noisy Internet-illiterate Christian fundamentalists. Senate numbers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

@LacqueredStudio Both policies suffer the problem that they assume it’s the government’s job to do parenting. Which it’s not.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@LacqueredStudio Everything’s easier from Opposition. Nevertheless, looking at the policies on their merits, the Liberals’ is less bad.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to LacqueredStudio

@SnarkyPlatypus Please stop discussing fellatio with Rupert’s minions, it can lead to problems later. Julie knows.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@DDsD Yes, the advert did actually have a web address at the end. :) I didn’t go there though. It felt dirty.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

@SnarkyPlatypus “Better than” and then “John Farnham” nearly always leads to a tautology.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I actually agree with Senator Minchin: free Internet filters for those who want them, under THEIR control. Not blanket filtering.

via Twitter Web Client

Oops Nick Minchin was “appalled” http://is.gd/FRY at Conroy’s office trying to bully Mark Newton through the IIA.

via Twitter Web Client

Senator Nick Minchin weighs in on Internet censorship. http://is.gd/FRY Being “appalled” is a bit rich seeing as it started as THEIR policy.

via Twitter Web Client

WS-FM plays INXS’ “Burn For You” http://is.gd/4GlW I am somewhat pleased.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I *would* like a photo of you and the vodka, of course, but I would prefer some of the vodka.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

WS-FM just had an advert from the commercial radio lobby explaining that radio advertising is good for directing people to your website.

via Twitter Web Client

@franksting Well, everyone seemed to know about the Hamish & Andy-branded gravy-flavoured crisps, someone must be listening to 2DAY-FM.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

@franksting: “Get them to switch to 2SER”? BUt it’s a no-repeat work day on WS-FM, a radio station dedicated to urine-based sex-play!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to franksting

Awaiting a grilled barramundi at The Duke. Ben will take care of me, he is a good chef. The commercial FM radio news is less inspiring.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus We are ALL “wearing a Sailor Moon type schoolgirl getup”, except you. You’re weird.

I think I’ll head to The Afternoon Office™ for lunch and a wind-down afternoon, and do that client work tomorrow after some rest.

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news Nyer Nyer! :P Pimped my own piece here and on Facebook before the email even dropped. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to crikey_news

@Fush [smirks] My Crikey piece http://is.gd/4G1p may be “in the clear”, but has steganographic content for my bestest friend Sen Conroy. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Fush

@oliyoung Well I only said “the somewhat-more-rational Greens”, in comparison with Senators Steve Fielding and Nick Xenophon. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to oliyoung

Me in Crikey today: “Cheap tricks not the right response on internet filtering” http://is.gd/4G1p (Is is behind the paywall?)

@henrytapia “You are so Twitter.” Yes, I am so Twitter that it BLEEDS sometimes. Only around the Full Moon, oddly enough.

@JonoH I will definitely be putting together my thoughts about “Stilgherrian Live” and its future too. was rather fun. Add video!

@charispalmer @bennglazier I used to have some 1920s [?] German stamps overprinted as “10 billion Marks”. As a 7yo I thought myself rich!

@SnarkyPlatypus @SilkCharm @sammyjopeters @ApostrophePong Your suspicious unrepressed memories of George Michael lyrics fool no-one.

Ah, here’s another piece! Not a hovercraft either. More a selection of premium Tasmanian cheeses served with dried apricots and almonds.

It’s a really tough jigsaw puzzle. At last! You see that it’s Winchester Cathedral. You’re handed a new piece. Suddenly it’s a hovercraft.

@ApostrophePong says “I am going to make some eggs.” Wow, Ovulation R Us. “Do you want some?” Erm… let’s see first.

@seancarmody Well, that and the lyrics to “Careless Whisper”. Perspective, perspective…

@seancarmody Hi to 21C. I’m at pub, pints down, grrrl band on stage… but someone says the government has faked a media release? Pounce!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to seancarmody

RT @seancarmody: Naughty! Govt has changed media release dated 12 Oct: current http://tinyurl.com/3htue8 original: http://tinyurl.com/6qhyyq

via Twitter Web Client

Band changeover time. Someone has put a Beach Boys CD on. Bring back the rock chick with the Telecaster, I say!

via Twitter Web Client

And what’s EVEN WORSE? A friend visiting NYC said he’s met Sarah Palin. Hope we washed.

via Twitter Web Client

The cover band at Kelly’s is playing “Careless Whispers”! ROFL! What’s worse? @ApostrophePong is singing along. He knows the words!

@JonoH That Ericsson W25 looks like a nice piece of kit!

@Alegrya Yeah I’ll be at Kelly’s a while, it’s a comfy reading environment… at least until the bands arrive. ;)

Oh. This red indicator says “reserve battery power”. Time for me and this MacBook Pro to go hunting for 240V.

God, I suppose I should do something about all the new followers recently. Like swear at them or something.

@JonoH I think @ABD was trying to attract your attention. He enjoyed our road trip. ;) As an aside, we should also talk about Evil Plans…
