@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis en appréciant le calme de la voix de sénateurs. Et vous, mon Monotreme brisé?

Senator Abetz is asking his “three quick questions” before Senator Birmingham comes back. One is whether ACMA is one word. No, spell it out.

via Twitter Web Client

Senate Estimates is returning after afternoon tea. http://is.gd/kuXY They’re just trying to find Senator Birmingham.

via Twitter Web Client

@jeamland It may be muzak, but it’s SENATE muzak! ;) (And anyway, Muzak Corp has filed for bankruptcy.)

NZ Govt to delay implementation of s92 of copyright law, may suspend if no agreement reached. http://is.gd/kuIY

Typical! I just get my Senate Estimate video stream up and they take a tea break! Gotta love Canberra.

via Twitter Web Client

Senate Estimates live streaming at http://is.gd/kuXY or on A-PAC on pay TV.

RT @BernardKeane: ACMA currently being grilled @ Estimates on internet censorship by Simon Birmingham

@websinthe OK, I am IN this story at http://tinyurl.com/bh44cc but I’m not nyet sure if I UNDERSTAND it. More absinthe may be needed.

Mobile. I think I might do Enmore Rd / King St for lunch.

Queensland Premier announces election date via YouTube. http://is.gd/kumB I supposed this makes her “cool” or something.

via Twitter Web Client

@davidkudrev I’m only watching it so I understand what the Crikey crew is talking about. I’m sure it’s important.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to davidkudrev

BTW, the Crikey Team’s liveblog of The Oscars is at http://is.gd/ku1o and I daresay it’ll be mildly amusing.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, so I’ve got The Oscars live in Livestation, streamed from ABC WAAY Alabama. The Internet’s like that.

via Twitter Web Client

So, has NINE got a livestream of The Oscars up? If not, why not? There’s no TV reception but I’d watch their adverts if they streamed.

@snarkosaurus I’m neither pro-<abstract concept> nor anti-<abstract concept> for all values of <abstract concept>. More nuance please!

via Twitter Web Client

I DEMAND some sort of centralised point of control! This is just… just… ANARCHY!

via Twitter Web Client

@trib So you’re claiming to be in charge in Canberra? Let’s just establish that before we get too carried away.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Whoever is in charge in Canberra, please tell @Nickhodge and @mpesce what’s going on kthxbai.

via Twitter Web Client

@marclehmann @paulq Yeah, I do brief 2-page Proposals outlining our broad approach and giving a fixed price for an initial scoping phase.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to marclehmann

@JoeTrippi I imagine your schedule is packed, yes. I’m MSFT’s “official heckler” ;) so I daresay we’ll catch up anyway.

Video: Scientologists blame psychiatry for 9/11 and the Holocaust. http://is.gd/kBqe Bonus revealing interview with L Ron Hubbard Jr.

@Cocodmonkey The Internet has grown faster than the number of experienced Internet network administrators. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cocodmonkey

@Cocodmonkey NO, the DNS problem relates to my own primary DNS and the secondary provided by the data centre I use. What’s up with Unwired?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Cocodmonkey

I hadn’t realised the political term “Dorothy Dixer” was specifically Australian! http://is.gd/kB0k

via Twitter Web Client

Tue plan: Solve a DNS problem (Grrr!); kick off 2 new web dev projects; prep tomorrow’s “Stilgherrian Live Road Trip” to Yass. I think.

via Twitter Web Client

@megpickard It’s a lovely Sydney day, so maybe oysters and vodka at Sydney Cove Oyster Bar on Circular Quay. Seafood and sun in any event.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to megpickard

@paulg @marclehmann The problem with RFPs is that “how” you’ll solve a problem is often half the work, and they want it up front for free.

via Twitter Web Client

@DDsD True. Also, planning so it goes smoothly is “invisible” work. Clients want to SEE that you’re working. Plus few know how to do it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DDsD

RT @DDsD: Though you need to remember that when there is no downtime, there is no work for the “IT consultants” ;)

via Twitter Web Client

Astounded at how few “IT consultants” plan migrating a client’s Internet hosting so that there’s no downtime or lost email. Slack, that is.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Shouting at the Moon again, I see?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

Whacko. Just what I wanted to solve this morning: DNS zone transfer problems affecting 180+ domains. Who can I escalate this to?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis comme Julie Bishop. Je suis comme un dragon. My exhalaisons peuvent tuer.

@JoeTrippi If MSFT’s minions haven’t booked you into dinner in Canberra tomorrow night, there’s http://is.gd/kwpK as a geeky gathering.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to JoeTrippi

@deanlk @CTUB Your dinner plans at http://is.gd/kwpK seem correct. I shall also mention them to @JoeTrippi.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai tué les fourmis, mais j’ai encore un mal de gorge. Je suis la toux de temps en temps. Êtes-vous le mieux?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@trib Indeed, it HAS to be in T&Cs if you plan on doing it. With a nice big draw-attention-to-this graphic or something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib I did see one company’s T&Cs which said on 2nd occurrence of late payment the culprit’s name, amount and date would be published.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib I’m always intrigued (in the abstract) that people will rather lie about when they’ll pay than admit they’ll be paying late.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@RozP The ants are inappropriate in number, location and activity. But they’re all dead now.

via Twitter Web Client

Emerges. The themes of the morning are cats, inappropriate ants and a sore throat.

Some chubby man in a denim jacket just started talking to me about bread rolls and the Nazis. Why do I attract there people?

via Cloudhopper

First rain spots in Enmore. Either that or a pigeon just shat on me head.

via Cloudhopper

@Nickhodge I seem to recall someone else describing “Underbelly” as “porn for people who don’t have the Internet”.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

Under 90 minutes until the rain hits inner west and central Sydney, I reckon.

@ApostrophePong Radar shows Parramatta was just dumped on, massive storm inland from Gosford. http://is.gd/iBFI

@timdunlop @BernardKeane There’s a bunch of people saying that Internet censorship is a vote-changer for them. Significance? @Pollytics?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh look! Senator Lundy asked a Dorothy Dixer so Senator Conroy can read his media release into the record. Again. We’ve heard all this.

via Twitter Web Client

@BernardKeane Oh fuck it! I’ll ask out loud. Is Senator Conroy drunk? Or has he got something weighing on his mind?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane Conroy, tho, is fibbing when he says the plan has “never” been about anything but the ACMA blacklist. See ALP Policy! ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to BernardKeane

@smperris Ah, no, but Senator Conroy is slumped forward, his suit is crumpled. He has slurred words a little. Well, a lot actually.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to smperris

@BernardKeane Conroy is looking well off the pace in Estimates at the moment. He looks tired, waffly etc.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Peut-être que le Sénateur Bernardi souffre peut guérir ce que vous.
