@SnarkyPlatypus I have a word puzzle for you! How many one-letter-change steps to turn “train” into “vodka”?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@rosieryan Yes, absolutely! ALL content kept forever!

@bengrubb Indeed. Like, storage for the ABC’s entire annual comment input might cost… oh, $100 or something.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to bengrubb

“ABC policy is to delete story comments 3 months after they are published.” What? Only keep your side? That’s fucked! Hat-tip @neerav.

@wheelyweb You’re right, I suspect. I have never seen a pigeon in an actual pigeonhole.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to wheelyweb

The International Monetary Fund has emailed to say they have $2,700,000 for me, which is rather sweet.

@bengrubb @leighsales No don’t drag me into this! Besides, I’ve already been on Lateline. For a little bit. Once.

@BaneAu Oh I wasn’t referring to Twitter (solely). I just saw traffic levels in everything drop. Also sound outside.

Has the world just ground to halt or something?

@TheVASydney @AndrewNez @RickyMaveety @gabfran I have no idea what you’re talking about. ;)

RT @Nickhodge: One man’s unicorn is another man’s jelly wrestling Denny Crane. [Um, I need a brief private moment here now, I think.]

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Ahem. I believe there’s a federal statute against using the words “lawyers” and “jellywrestle” in the same sentence.

Need something geeky to help you waste the entire afternoon? Try “Encyclopedia Astronautica”! http://tr.im/trCh

@piawaugh Dare you to start routinely referring to all other industries as the “uncreative industries”. Dare you.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to piawaugh

@mpesce Comments are all on the topic of publishing and gloss over the unicorn sex, which I have thusly normalised for our society. WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Damn. I thought I’d get hate mail. Instead I got a “superb”, and even Verity Pravda said I was only “slightly wrong”. Must. Try. Harder.

@ikostar True, pretty much everyone has a camera in their pocked in western cities now. The game changes… ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ikostar

UK has 1 million fewer surveillance cameras than first thought, but still more than anywhere else. http://tr.im/trfU

@barrysaunders The lair is neither nefarious or not-nefarious. It is a neutral lair. Also, with windows.

via Twitter Web Client

@DamianM Oh, I didn’t actually see (or process) anyone waving to me this morning. Sorry.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to DamianM

@CameronWatt Yes, DIY plastic surgery by injecting yourself with silicone lube instead of, you know, silicone implants. FAIL.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CameronWatt

This is perhaps more a lair than an eyrie. “Lair” is a much-underused word IMHO.

Oh noes! My last tweet confused “there” and “their”! AAAAAARRRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH1!!1!111!!!!!

via Twitter Web Client

@hopeinhell True, their are state laws as well. Mind you, my experience with small-business clients is they have little idea of any of it.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to hopeinhell

@trib You are wrong, Sir. http://tr.im/tzZ1 Under $3M businesses count only if in certain categories.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@trib @chieftech @ireckon Median business in Australia by count is still a sole trader with a part-time bookkeeper, no Privacy Act.

via Twitter Web Client

@trib @chieftech @ireckon Also remember, Privacy Act doesn’t apply to small businesses with turnover under $3Mpa, i.e. most.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@SnarkyPlatypus Formidable! Tout le monde aime la politique d’une bonne bosse.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@ireckon Plus, small employers do not have “processes”, they just pick who they like the most and often have no documentation at all.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

@ireckon Oh indeed, employers will decide to hire or not based on what they see, then invent reasons later if they need documentation.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ireckon

RT @trib: Good piece on .au privacy law and checking up on your employees on their social networks. We’re well protected. http://is.gd/1I1xq

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Une fois de plus, par des rêves a conduit à un éclairage politique. Insolite, non? Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Someone also needs to add the 1970s South Australian political candidate, Sub Paragraph Three.

via Twitter Web Client

@unsungsongs @ApostrophePong Yes, unusual names on Wikipedia. http://bit.ly/QnztN Poor form for me to add me, but ANYONE can hit “edit”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

@leighsales You need Twitter client software like Tweetdeck or Nambu that offers groups, yes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to leighsales

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t know why you keep it such a secret. Beatrice is a lovely middle name.

@Matt_Tulk Yeah everything I’m heading says that swine flu fits within the usual annual mix of flu. So far, anyway.

@Nickhodge I think there’s been enough goat for one day.

Gogle Flu Trends shows Australia tracking much like any other year. http://tr.im/ttq1 Are this year’s death rates normal?

@_Soliloquy_ There were no Nigerian princes, in that email or any other that I read today.

This goat is having its revenge. And not in a good way.

@noblemonkey Powdered wigs. I think delivery by chaps in powdered wigs would be suitable.

This is altogether more rain than is warranted this evening.
