@GreenJ More on oil and gas in Nigeria, including that it flares (just burns) 71M cubic metres of gas annually. http://tr.im/mZ7E

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

@GreenJ Um, why look at Nigeria? Two million barrels of oil per day might have a bit to do with it. http://tr.im/mZ77 Just a guess.

@eddit0r Yes, ABC/SBS are indeed a public good. And they’re making good use of the Internet within their appalling small budgets.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r By “public radio”, you mean what we’re now meant to call “community” ‘cos the ABC and SBS are the “public broadcasters”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

@eddit0r I think the key issue is that instead of N channels we now have infinite channels. What does audience fragmentation me for society?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to eddit0r

Just thinking that being accused of “Champagne Trolling” by @stephenconroy is high praise indeed. Chuffed.

via Twitter Web Client

@eddit0r But, public and community broadcasters can (or will) send audio streams cheaper online than broadcast. Customised, too.

@sylmobile Agreed, the 10-minute rule for naps is (usually) good. This is clearly not just tiredness though. It came on fast, too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sylmobile

I’m guessing that shortage of sleep thanks to unrelated insomnia helped push me into that 2-10%. Plus unrelated stress.

via Twitter Web Client

Yellow Fever: “2-10% may feel tired, headache, muscle aches, fever for 24 hours starting 3-9 days after the vaccine.” Correct.

A 3-hour nap has not really helped. I feel shocking.

@juhasaarinen Also, my all-caps tweet was not related to my question, so if that’s your angle, well, you just happen to be wrong. [shrugs]

via Twitter Web Client in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen Sorry, asking for advice occasionally is now “all the time” and “leeching”? And which “we” do you speak for, exactly?
