@SnarkyPlatypus Naturellement, ce que vous dites est universellement vrai. Je ferme les yeux. Ciel, aidez-moi! http://is.gd/igoB

@SnarkyPlatypus Je veux tuer les petits animaux innocents. Quelqu’un doit être puni.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Comme vous avez pu le constater, les dégâts sont essentiellement spirituelle plutôt que psychologique, physique.

Emerges. Kookaburras. Aches.

@facibus If “love” is the answer then it must’ve been a fucking stupid question.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

Yes. To all your questions, the answer is “Yes”.

@middleclassgirl has arrived. She’s buying drinks. We’re so fucked.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Hey if I’m at my desk before 0600 then I can be away from it now. Anyway, I’m writing and doing research. True.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Sydney folks, @middleclassgirl is in town. Drinks / dinner at Kelly’s, Newtown, 6.30pm. I’m here, um, checking that Alles ist in Ordnung.

@weirdchina If you like those mini-adventures, you might like @ApostrophePong’s “Bangkok Express”. http://is.gd/ibgm

@Nickhodge What have you got against Ewoks, you intolerant cunt?

Rhetorical question: Why is Skype’s website ALWAYS slow? Always.

Breakfast for the woman in front oe me: a sausage roll, a chocolate cupcake and 2 cans of Coca-Cola.

RT @OpenAustralia: First day of this year’s parliament up now on http://www.openaustralia…

via Twitter Web Client

@adavid No, I’m not looking for the details. I was looking to see how well the news sites handled giving me the information.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to adavid

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown station / Town Hall station / Hyde Park / coffee / lunch / Sydney CBD aimlessness and ennui.

@DianaRusso I think your tweet at http://is.gd/ihwG is a tautology: You’re eligible if you’re eligible. But what is the eligibility test? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DianaRusso

@rossdawson That actually looks a fine bunch of speakers etc at “Enterprise 2.0 Executive Forum 2009”. http://is.gd/ihrk

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rossdawson

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t get porked because the ATO would rather me be paying them not them paying me kthxbai. Pricks.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@kcarruthers Are you a pig now? @SnarkyPlatypus says I must ask you directly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to kcarruthers

Good God! @rossdawson’s mob just sent me an email which includes a photo of @kcarruthers WEARING LIPSTICK! IS SHE NOW A PIG?!!??11!!?

Wed plan: Pain; errands; 1100 Sekrit Coffee in CBD; ad lib after that, though I have plenty of loose-end work. Shall I work in the CBD?

@middleclassgirl Wayne Swann’s stimulation? There’s only one answer to that! http://is.gd/ihf3

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

RT @R_Chirgwin: Eligibility not documented by media in fact sheets here: http://is.gd/igFX [Isn’t Wayne Swan a sex god, eh?]

via Twitter Web Client

Ta to everyone now sending linkage. I’ll sort thru it shortly and RT some. My test, though. was whether news sites could tell me directly.

via Twitter Web Client

“Bonus will be available to Australian resident taxpayers who paid tax in the 2007-08 financial year…” http://is.gd/ibpH Hat-tip @liedra.

via Twitter Web Client

To the people who suggested that no-one actually knows the rules yet, this is probably true. But “experts” have opinions anyway. Ah, news!

via Twitter Web Client

Even the PM’s own website has generalities. http://is.gd/iaOD What’s so hard about linking to the actual documents?

via Twitter Web Client

@R_Chirgwin As I’m not a member of a Howardesque “family” I don’t even know what Family Tax Benefit art A or B even means. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @ohmynothingness: Eligibility details have not been published on the ATO website, just info on how to get the money IF you’re eligible.

via Twitter Web Client

However “workers” is ambiguous. Propaganda word! Does that mean “employees” only, or does it include contractors and self-employed?

via Twitter Web Client

@jasongray Yes, http://livenews.com.au/ has “What you’ll get from Rudd’s handout” linking to a clear bullet-point list. WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jasongray

A phrase like “low and middle income earners” means “all”? “Some”? “Many”? Clarity please, news outlets!

via Twitter Web Client

http://news.ninemsn.com…. FAIL! Below-the-fold link “Govt releases $42b stimulus package” same phrase as SMH.

via Twitter Web Client

ABC News FAIL! Good banner-link to “FULL COVERAGE”, but lead stories are analysis and response. News cycle moving too fast?

via Twitter Web Client

http://smh.com.au FAIL! Link from “Rudd’s plan to save the nation” to “low- and middle-income earners, farmers and families” no definitions.

via Twitter Web Client

(My test is that from looking at the headlines/links I should be able to see that there’s a story which answers my question.)

via Twitter Web Client

http://news.com.au FAIL! Home page links to “Experts’ verdict”, Rodd’s video (I don’t want to watch again), stories on interest rate cut.

via Twitter Web Client

@paulwallbank There’s $950 for “low and middle income earners”. My test is to find out whether that includes me, ‘cos I don’t know.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

My test for Australia’s news sites today: On your front page, can I see clearly where to find if I’m eligible for Rudd’s $950 handout?

via Twitter Web Client

Emma Phillips’ photo of Pauline Hanson is glorious! Will it win the Moran Contemporary Photographic Prize? http://is.gd/igJP

@imdesign2 @zzap I suspect that all knowledge is false, anyway. Nothing to see here.

Codeine FTW. Definitely FTW.
