@michaelmeloni Can you confirm that AWO’s email to you is the SAME text as at http://tinyurl.com/68cyp9? She’s claiming different in Crikey.

@zhasper I’m not on FriendFeed, any benefit to me? I’m not responsible for your need for “imaginary friends”. (Can discuss other fantasies.)

@katska Re “How to Nap” http://is.gd/xuJ I was going to compliment Boston Globes’ widescreen layout, but saw it was images not live text.

@Warlach AFAIK Mark Newton doesn’t use Twitter. He strikes me as a bit old-school for that.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

BTW, I got a response from my MP, Anthony Albanese. It’s just the usual canned “party line” crap which misses the point.

@bengrubb Maybe someone should print it out and wave it at a camera to demonstrate the sheer volume of material.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb Of course Whirlpool is a relatively closed group. If only that energy of 7 x 50 pages went out to where politicians see it!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

@frankroche That’s my point. If @twitties’ projection is a linear model of a cyclic (daily/weekly) and growing tweet pattern, it’s useless.

@Entregreeneur I’m not the one to ask about “TV”. I haven’t watched live broadcast TV in months.

@pixel8ted Channel Nine is no longer owned by “media people”. Losing audience? Cut costs with cheap shows e.g. “20 to 1”. Result? Collapse.

BTW this week’s “Stilgherrian Live” won’t be Thursday night. I’ll be at a Gratner briefing about… about, oh, drinkng their free alcohol.

Hmmm… I really should do something symbolic to welcome all the new followers I’ve had recently. Maybe a slideshow on “Stilgherrian Live”.

@dekrazee1 The music used by SBS is “She’s Too Hot to Touch” by legendary Australian band Supernaut.

@DJPoyner Who needs soup at midnight?

@facibus Increasingly, I’m thinking that the covered-up story of the falllout clouds from the Maralinga atomic bomb tests hide something…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@facibus If they’re from Taswegia, can’t we just cut the cables and be done with it? They’ve all still got cousins etc for sexual relief.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@jeamland I’m toying with the idea, now, if creating a new category called “soup pr0n”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jeamland

RT @jeamland: @stilgherrian I want a device that finds me hardcore pornography whenever I make soup. Just for the surreality.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus Where are you getting this commentary about the pr0n filters?

@retrogrrl The problem is, he hides away for a day when injured and we only discover it when he’s swollen like a unmilked cow.

Wondering whether to take photos of the Penrose drain in Apollo’s front arm or not. He seems unfussed by it, but then it’s not his first.

If we have to put another goddam Penrose drain into that cat! Sheesh! Anyway he’s happy now. [sigh]

@JonoH I’m in Adelaide 20-23 November, if theory turns into reality. Other than that, it’s Sydney for me. Unless the alien thing turns out.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH When are we beering? Well, when are you in Sydney? I can’t do Brisbane any time soon.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Careful! Don’t get too excited about your MacBook Pro still being in Pudong or your head will explode. Trust me on this.

(Note: I nearly accidentally typed “as a well-maintained forearm”. That would be something very, very different.)

via Twitter Web Client

@monnie No, I haven’t considered it. Shit, even seagull shit, does nowhere near as much pleasurable damage as a well-maintained firearm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to monnie

I have never flown into a room to shit on someone.

I think I am starting to agree with those who find the seagull avatar to be somehow appropriate.

@kcarruthers Hotmail is down to install monitors. When Obama is President he’ll round up Republicans, feed them to the Nigger Jew-Lizards.

@doshdosh Aust’n research says number of voters deciding on election day here increasing, but making more informed choice. http://is.gd/6hrC

via Twitter Web Client in reply to doshdosh

@AshleyAngell What’s ‘really’ going on? Reality is a slippery subject, lots have had trouble with it in the past. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AshleyAngell

@AshleyAngell Every decision is a gamble, or has consequences, or whatever, yes. Just a matter of degree.

@IanWoolf Bernard Keane in Crikey today “ISP filtering: who’s exploiting the kids?” http://is.gd/6gHK explores other links.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanWoolf

@IanWoolf Internet filtering’s on ALP’s agenda largely because of an 11k-signature petition, most collected at churches. Normal politics. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to IanWoolf

@AshleyAngell @mokargas ALL choices affect us all. It’s a Buddhist thing. Or a quantum mechanics thing. Which is the same thing.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AshleyAngell

@IanWoolf “Internet filtering is a Church conspiracy”? Whaaaa…? I didn’t say that!

@michaelmeloni Ta for the AWO material. Yes, different email, same themes. But check this old stoush with @duncanriley! http://is.gd/6hdt

@wolfcat Ms Deborah obviously don’t see that her response makes AWO look even loopier on this issue. Very poor media management.

@franksting he NY Times mapping looks totally different on the front end from Google’s. No idea what the back end is. Different projection.
