@SnarkyPlatypus Sadly, yes, broadcast TV isn’t quite dead yet. Channel 7 still picks up audience showing repeat ABC docos.

@SnarkyPlatypus But we have Teh Intertubes! We can have any porgram we want from anywhere, should they distribute it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Actually Channel 9 is more your Thaksin kind of station. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe if we’re lucky Thailand’s Constitutional Court can dissolve Channel 10 as well.

Time to re-pimp my backgrounder on the Thai political crisis: http://is.gd/9rBf @ApostrophePong’s: http://is.gd/9D3S

@alicam Army chief General Anupong has been quite clear that the days of the army intervening to choose sides are over. That’s a BIG change.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to alicam

Anyone want to open a book on how many minutes until the tanks roll in Bangkok? If I were Gen Anupong I’d have them ready to go.

RT @BreakingNewsOn: AP: Thailand’s Constitutional Court dissolves second party in ruling coalition for electoral fraud.

@SnarkyPlatypus @ApostrophePong Thai Constitutional Court bans PPP, PM etc. Will the red-shirts accept or is it tanks on the street tonight?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

@kcarruthers Now that Puppycam is going away we should find someone with some baby calves and set up . All the way thru the process.

@bennglazier I don’t hunt pho specifically, but one I had at the Thanh Bihn in Cabramatta was rather good.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bennglazier

@elomis Very little mint in the pho. I’d have expcted more, actually. Though plenty of basil, lime and chilli.

Walking to Marrickville and back provided Vitamin D and excellent Vietnamese lunch, but exhaustion and a return of the fever. And coughing.

via Twitter Web Client

@dcw303 Those 9-5 coders are who I mean. Don’t learn anything new unless work pays for training. Scary.

via Twitter Web Client

@Warlach When I see these guys, their input seems to be the monthly PC mags. I’m not a good judge tho.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Warlach

@servantofchaos @Warlach Tech types not into social media haven’t heard of Conroy’s Rabbit-Proof Firewall yet. They’re very disconnected.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to servantofchaos

My 1500 meeting at The Rocks has just been cancelled. Instead, @ApostrophePong and I will soon walk to Marrickville Rd. Sun and coughing.

@Jon_Seymour Your response to Clive Hamilton is a gem, Sir! “With Extremeists Like These, who Needs Moderates?” http://is.gd/9Ob8

@coljac I think Thai Politics 101 could work as a 1-man-show with finger puppets representing the key players.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to coljac

Wed plan: 1200 medico appointment to see how bad this fever really is; nothing else.

via Twitter Web Client

Chicken soup had better be the cure-all it’s meant to be. With garlic. I feel truly dreadful. So does @ApostrophePong. Ah well… [exit]

@paulanthonywils I wrote a backgrounder on Thailand the other day, tho some of the subtleties are in the comments. http://is.gd/9rBf

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulanthonywils

The Telegraph (UK): “Spectre of civil war stalks divided Thailand” http://is.gd/9QQC Makes the point that the PADis anything but.

via Twitter Web Client

@websinthe You can probably find the suggested journo rates at http://www.alliance.org…. but it’s not an ‘award” in the strict IR sense.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

Another good backgrounder on the Thai situation, from “New Matilda”. http://is.gd/9Qgm

via Twitter Web Client

[sigh] PAD have said they won’t leave BKK & DMK until remainder of cabinet resigns now. Don’t want them as caretakers. http://is.gd/9QFJ

RT @BreakingNewsOn: AP: Thai prime minister accepts court ruling to step down.

Reading @thaicoup’s Twitterstream, I don’t think he / she / they are taking this entirely seriously. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

RT @thaicoup: ASTV english channel showing about some ancient war or King ..in thai… Coup-O-Meter adjusted to 99.555%

via Twitter Web Client

I see that @jeffjarvis has decided the word “media” is now singular. http://is.gd/9QyS I think I agree.

via Twitter Web Client

@georgierecruits I imagine (speculation) that no-one would do violence on the King’s birthday, which is Friday, but maybe that’s all.

via Twitter Web Client

@thetowncrier As one key man who taught me my radio craft said, “All the best ad libs are written down well in advance.” ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to thetowncrier

@georgierecruits For all the chaos seen on TV, it’s really only in small, key areas… the Old City, the airports. I’d happily go to BKK.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @thetowncrier There could be a program about the making of a reality TV show like Australian Idol or Big Brother…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

My throat has been getting steadily worse thru the day, and that’s without any drunken rants or oral sex. This could be serious.
