OH: Don’t be fooled by the muffin! It’s just a piece of cake!

@Nickhodge @facibus You’re both being bad influences on me. Given some of my current SEKRIT PLANS it’s even more bad. Explanations later.

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge If you’re taking out teh why don’t you use like a Minigun or a Metal Storm or something?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@facibus I don’t know rifles, except the Mauser pre-WWII single-shot .22 I had years ago.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to facibus

@ericscheid @facibus Hair-trigger is a problem, but you can get an ointment for that.

via Twitter Web Client

Sorry, typo. I meant an M72, not an M76. That and the Browning 9mm. Stick to what I know. Oh, and the Carl Gustav 84mm. Shoosh.

via Twitter Web Client

@facibus I can handle a sword, I’ll be OK. Mind you, I’d be more comfortable with a Browning 9mm. Or an M76.

RT @Nickhodge: Don’t forget. ABC1 8.30pm Four Corners. “Cyberbullying”

via Twitter Web Client

@middleclassgirl Should I ask, “What is ‘a fucking glitter storm’?”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@middleclassgirl I am excellent, thank you (despite the pain), and happy with my work today. Yourself?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to AnnabelAstbury

@SnarkyPlatypus If it is indeed a slippery slope, can I provide a list of names?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@mr_billiam @SnarkyPlatypus I hereby coin “AHE” as the approved TLA for “All hail Eris!”.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus I may have succumbed to the Sirens’ call, but the Sirens serve a rather fine prawn salad. What’s a boy to do?

@bradleybones Heh! “Professionals” get to classify themselves, they’re trained to know the rules. But 21M Australians making content? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bradleybones

@bradleybones My answer is that the govt had to be seen to respond to complaints, to “add to the blacklist” was the process created.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bradleybones

@bradleybones The list is provided to filter-makers, but there’s no law to enforce use. Rudd govt’s plan is to enforce its use by all ISPs.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bradleybones

@bradleybones Since ACMA can’t order non-Australian sites to take down content, the blacklist was created. http://bit.ly/cIGI

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bradleybones

@erkpod Hah! The Veronicas are BASED in LA these days! You are at the very centre of Pseudo-Sapphicism!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to erkpod

@bradleybones “What is the point of the blacklist?” Do you want the government’s answer or my answer? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bradleybones

That @mpesce bloke will be on ABC Radio National’s “PM” in a moment. Streamed from http://www.abc.net.au/rn/

via Twitter Web Client

@websinthe Indeed. ACMA is implementing the policy it was handed, with whatever pissy budget they got. That it’s shit is unsurprising.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to websinthe

That said, the blacklist contains URLs which included session IDs or navigation parameters or search queries. It was “technically poor”.

via Twitter Web Client

@websinthe @HappySinger @shermozle LOL! Now we’re getting into hypotheticals. :) ACMA just provides a list of URLs to filter-makers.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @jdub: It appears that [ACMA is] not legislatively capable of using wildcards anyway… discrete URLs only. [Ah that’s probably true.]

via Twitter Web Client

@shermozle Well, yes, can’t do wildcards with MD5 hashes. So we need ‘crypted distribution. Are they paying us to sort this out? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to shermozle

@rbuerckner PDF is wrong for the ACMA blacklist: it has to be included in “approved filters”. A text file of MD5 hashes might work.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rbuerckner

@garthk I am fucking sick of cultural imperialism being reinforced by lazy programming. Maybe acceptable 20 years ago but not now. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@mr_billiam Well ACMA doesn’t make the filter, they just compile the blacklist and hand it on. Still, from my inspection, it’s rubbish.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_billiam

@wraptinweb ACMA was distributing the “secret” blacklist in plaintext via unencrypted email. I mean, just how stupid can you get?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wraptinweb

@cameronreilly Senator Conroy hasn’t exhibited sufficient spine to give a clear “Yes”.

via Twitter Web Client

@cameronreilly On the second batch of leaked blacklists, Senator Conroy said it “seemed to be close”. http://is.gd/oZNc

via Twitter Web Client in reply to cameronreilly

@garthk “Apostrophes aren’t valid username components.” Orly? Or, “O’Reilly”? Why can’t someone use their name as a username? Discuss. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

RT @aramadge: ACMA boss slams media coverage of blacklist leak in internal email. http://is.gd/qX83 [Shall we all laugh now?]

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / late lunch / ad lib from there. Attention reduced.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce @firstdogonmoon Oh, today’s cartoon is not-free. We shall have to show @thechicken another way.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce Has anyone messaged @thechicken to tell her about her new-found fame in @firstdogonmoon’s cartoon, I wonder? I will now.

@renailemay I guess CenITex would be sensitive if they had a lot to hide? I’m not hearing anything positive about them… [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

That’s me in Crikey today, BTW: “The future of ‘quality’ journalism: lots of questions, few answers” http://is.gd/qWl6

via Twitter Web Client

@duncanriley [smirks] Thank you. Yes, I’m rather happy with Twitter as “blogging’s meth-paced spawn”. ;) http://is.gd/qWl6

via Twitter Web Client in reply to duncanriley

@renailemay That tip about CenITex blocking Crikey must’ve gone straight to the Melbourne office. I’m not across it. Hilarious if true.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

@GreenJ Ta. The “quallity journalism” piece isn’t my best, but it does sum up Thursday’s forum. The ABC will be deliriously happy.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ I’m sending you some words which you’re not allowed to “misplace” this time.

via Twitter Web Client

Don’t people know that http://status.twitter.com will answer 90% of the lame-arsed questions they keep asking about Twitter problems? RTFB!

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Easy decision: EVERYONE will have said everything about NBN before ABC Unleashed processes handle what you write. What can you add?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Amazed at how many folks are so gullible as to be in awe at the top-level headlines, failing to notice the weasel words.

via Twitter Web Client

Catching up: No NBN tenders accepted, govt will build 100Mbit/sec FTTH to 90% of population with new govt-owned enterprise.

via Twitter Web Client

Thank you, ABC2 livestream, for looping to play some other shit instead of staying live. Technology FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client

@impluvium If @BreakfastNews doesn’t know how to pronounce their Twitter name they’re idiots. They’ve had three fucking months to decide!

via Twitter Web Client

@NewtonMark LOL! No, the media was asked to gather at 0815 for an 0830 start. We must all wait for Mr Popular.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NewtonMark

@BernardKeane @crikey_news Please make sure to tag your tweets … and I will be doing the same. As will everyone else watching live.

via Twitter Web Client

@tardis_42 Yes, I DID notice that Twitter was acting strangely this morning… ‘cos… I AM USING TWITTER MYSELF! Ahem. Calm.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to tardis_42

@davesag @saline The PROBLEM is “jounalism” is begin equated with “newspapers”. That’s limiting people’s thinking. http://bit.ly/EccZ2

via Twitter Web Client in reply to davesag

@BreakfastNews AGAIN, you READ OUT the email and phone number but just say “on Twitter”! Read all or none! Consistency! Respect!

via Twitter Web Client

OK, National Broadband Network in 15 mins. I’ll be tagging my tweets , as will any competent or well-endowed person.

via Twitter Web Client

@courtney_gibson Yep, http://status.twitter.co… has the details of today’s whaleage. It’s a tad wobbly.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to courtney_gibson

@renailemay I’m sure Sky News will have the NBN announcement. My missing tweets, well before your breaking, also said ABC2 will have it. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

Roughly half my tweets from the last hour appear to be MIA. When you tweet as much as I do, you notice these things.

via Twitter Web Client

@saline “The thought of life without newspapers is distressing”? I’m sure losing ox-carts was distressing too. But it’s time to move on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to saline

RT @SnarkyPlatypus:Yes, I have always thought @stilgherrian and Jason Priestley had many qualities in common. [Well, obviously.]

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews Why spend so much time talking about newspapers? Quaint. More people now get their news online! Why not review websites etc?

via Twitter Web Client

@trib Uhoh. Now what idea have I given you? That could be a worry. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

RT @BreakfastNews: LIVE 0830 - Kevin Rudd to announce winner of contract to build the national broadband network… live on ABC2. [OK then.]

via Twitter Web Client

The ABC @BreakfastNews live stream, like so many ABC live streams, is at http://bit.ly/7nVfp If it’s not there, I will be very, very angry.

via Twitter Web Client

@BreakfastNews If you’re showing the NBN announcement LIVE then your last “coming up” failed to make that clear. [slap]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @impluvium: ABC2’s News Breakfast is going to show it live apparently. [If so, their last “coming up” failed to make that clear.]

via Twitter Web Client

It’s 2009. The PM is about to make an announcement. Will I be able to watch it live somewhere? If not, why not? Why must it be filtered?

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Je suis d’accord avec tout ce que vous dites à propos de Samantha Fox. Et de morses. Et tout le reste, en fait.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@penbo Mind you, after 17 hours I reckon the Twitterriver has well and truly flowed on.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to penbo

Rudd / Swan / Tanner / Conroy joint media conference announced for 0815 AEST. Looks like the NBN gets announced. Stand by.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@trib I am reliable informed that “อุบัติ” also means “emerges”. but it also a pun for “gruesome accident”. Or something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@penbo Oh, I meant just that your very presence will raise the tone of Twitter. Like, generally. In your own special way.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to penbo

Emerges. อุบัติ.
