@glengyron I gather there was been some news today regarding the ETS, yes. I suppose I’ll read it over lunch.

@SnarkyPlatypus If Crikey IS run by sagebrush, it would explain a good deal.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Crikey story filed! It contain no mention of sagebrush, because I know they are watching my every move.

Did anyone notice how the goat guy on “Stilgherrian Live” looked like @Nickhodge?

via Twitter Web Client

If you just missed “Stilgherrian Live” episode 52, it’s at http://is.gd/2f84I … thouh it’s never the same without the live audience.

via Twitter Web Client

@plasmaegg Oh, I can’t give attention to chat while presenting the program, but if they kick you for using normal words then Ustream goes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to plasmaegg

30 minutes until “Stilgherrian Live” at http://is.gd/2eZq4, plinkies start in 20 mins. Be afraid.

via Twitter Web Client

OK, one hour until “Stilgherrian Live” at http://is.gd/2eZq4 … you have been warned!

via Twitter Web Client

@neg2led No, I think you are completely confused. Which is fine. But wrong.

Nominations for “Cnut of the week” close in 30 minutes. http://is.gd/2elyd

via Twitter Web Client

I need three keywords to select the closing program videos. Suggestions?

via Twitter Web Client

Oh lovely. I have been nominated as my own “Cnut of the Week”! http://is.gd/2eSl0

via Twitter Web Client

@courtney_gibson “Facebook Lite” is like “Arsehole Lite”. I mean, where do you start?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to courtney_gibson

Look, if you have ANY self-respect, nominate someone for “Cnut of the Week”. http://is.gd/2elyd “Stilgherrian Live” is in 3 hours.

via Twitter Web Client

Facebook is such a piece of shit.

via Twitter Web Client

Why am I retweeting machinations of the Canberra beltway elite which mean NOTHING to 99% of the population? Sorry.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Jester_Jeff: Denis Richardson to be next SEC DFAT: http://is.gd/2eCF1

via Twitter Web Client

We have so few nominations for “Cnut of the Week” that you’ve got a VERY good chance of winning the prize. http://is.gd/2elyd

@willhughes The formal maths scares me too. I did “Theory of Computation”. We’d have exam questions on reproducing Turing’s work! Scary.

RT @BernardKeane: Huge Public Service changes just announced by Govt - major upheaval among Secretaries. More to come.

via Twitter Web Client

@garthk Plastic sheeting. Lots of plastic sheeting. Buy a whole roll, in fact, and get the bulk discount. And bleach. I know these things.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to garthk

@CassieST I live in Enmore. There’s ALWAYS suitable eateries. I am… sated. For now.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CassieST

@ADevenish Mate, if we nerded it up any more you’d go blind. No. Wait.

via Twitter Web Client

@vealmince Oh iPhone developers are too busy revelling in the brand new joys of COPY & PASTE to, like, respond to work offers.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to vealmince

RT @aussexparty: Re asp emission trading policy we prefer not to trade or share emissions and use condoms but watch this space. [Oooh!]

via Twitter Web Client

@Nickhodge Actually, I think I might explain λ calculus tonight. http://is.gd/2ezGB That’ll sort the sheep from the goats.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@Nickhodge Erm, no, the Entscheidungsproblem http://is.gd/2ezuy is probably too tough even for Crikey’s indolent public service retirees.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

RT @Warlach: “One in four Australians have developed an iPhone app. See your Doctor today about an Android Dev Kit.”?

via Twitter Web Client

@renailemay Well, yeah, 3000 sounds a lot and Jeez, tabloid exaggeration FTW, eh? ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to renailemay

Starting to wonder if “iPhone app developer” is the new synonym for “herpes”.

via Twitter Web Client

Also, nominations are open for “Cnut of the Week” for tonight’s “Stilgherrian Live”. http://is.gd/2elyd

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Pollytics: As someone asked at Poll Bludger - what’s the Australian Sex Party’s policy on emissions trading?

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub Yeah, Labor in the Reps, and me and all of Steve Fielding’s mates and Nick Xenophon and half a dozen rent boys as the Senate! WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

@mpesce This may seem strangely anachronistic, but why don’t you PHONE the Immigration people? FFS!

@GreenJ While you lot are all watching Question Time, real stories are escaping. And somewhere, a unicorn is dying…

RT @renailemay: 20yo Adelaide guy arrested for massive 3,000 PC worldwide virus attack: http://bit.ly/Q0CbT [Except 3000 is TINY.]

via Twitter Web Client

@scttw Actually, let’s have a DD and then I’ll have a go at the Senate. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scttw

@KevinRuddPM OK, forget the DD bit, smarter people than me have made the point. Just… go for it, mate!

via Twitter Web Client

Antony Green: “Does Labor have Nine Potential Double Dissolution Triggers?” http://is.gd/2etVo Hat-tip @BernardKeane.

via Twitter Web Client

@scttw Your point about double dissolutions and half-quotes, ah, yes, well, maybe a screwdriver in the neck is the way then.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scttw

@CassieST An iPhone app is of no value to me. ;) Also, a list of restaurants with past problems is no guide to my food today.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CassieST

@KevinRuddPM Yes, double dissolution please. Getting rid of Fielding would be worth losing half a dozen seats, IMHO.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I want an early election so we can get rid of Fielding the arsehat ASAP. [Hear hear.]

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub Well, if there’d been a coal sale worth billions, it’d be front page news. Technology doesn’t get a run. Why is that? Media FAIL. ;)

Wondering whether I succeeded in explaining formal methods for software verification to the proles. I mean, to Crikey readers.

For those who don’t know, “A Series of Tubes” is a near-weekly podcast on which I often am. http://is.gd/2fPA1

via Twitter Web Client

“A Series of Tubes” podcast input recorded. @R_Chirgwin will have fun editing THAT rant down to length!

via Twitter Web Client

“Evony - A patchwork of stolen parts”, and also a security risk IMHO. http://is.gd/2fNQu

via Twitter Web Client

No, Tweetdeck, Twitter is not “All Good”. It’s mostly fucked-up and pointless, actually.

via Twitter Web Client

Are there any websites that DON’T have that Evony advertisement on them?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @desplesda: Historic internet figure Jeff K also pioneered the term “assboat”. [Do you mean THIS Jeff K? http://is.gd/2fMwY Gosh.]

via Twitter Web Client

@chartoftheday Why doesn’t today’s chart of smartphone market share http://is.gd/2fM81 say whether it’s US or global figures? Grrr!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus @Pollytics But “The Perils of Julie Bishop” IS a neo-con porn movie! Just Google “neocon sex kitten”! http://is.gd/2fLtp

via Twitter Web Client

@sophblack Does the Wankley winner have to be Australian? What about “Investor’s Business Daily” on Stephen Hawking? http://is.gd/2fKHC

via Twitter Web Client

RT @CADbloke: I think the “tard” suffix has some untapped potential left in it. Also “arseclown” is semantically vivid. [Agreed on both.]

via Twitter Web Client

Fri plan: 0930 record for “A Series of Tubes”; desk morning; lunch somewhere different (where?); Potts Point in the late afternoon; TGIF.

@courtney_gibson “Does it mean attributing to someone you don’t like is an ArseHat Tip?” It does. I like.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to courtney_gibson

@Pollytics “The Perils of Julie Bishop” sounds like she’s tied to the tracks in the path of an oncoming train. Actually… hmmm… yes!

via Twitter Web Client

New blog post: “Episode 52 is online, Senator Steve Fielding!” http://is.gd/2fJVJ

via Twitter Web Client

“Arsehat” is such an excellent word.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Fielding is still an arsehat.

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Quelle coïncidence! Je me sens comme un scandale impliquant un chanteur pop japonaise! http://is.gd/2fG33

Is it just me, or is the stock-photo “grandmother” on the Skype download page somewhat… disturbing? http://is.gd/2fFQB

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il ya un certain montant d’inconfort. J’espère qu’il va bientôt passer. Et vous, Monsieur Ornithorynque?
