For those who asked, Fox Sports 1 was showing some weird mutant Muay Thai for overweight middle-aged men trying to prove something.

via Twitter Web Client

I think I shall base my cult on what Fox Sports 1 is showing right now.

via Cloudhopper

Wow, thanks for all your advice on starting a cult. That’s quite heartening. I’ll prepare a plan based on your input tomorrow, my minions.

via Cloudhopper

I think I might start a cult.

via Cloudhopper

Oh dear, someone isn’t having much luck with mechanical things today. Things with 3, maybe 4 moving parts! So confusing!

@AndrewColley @firstdogonmoon Actually, I reckon a Vengaboys t-shirt at an AC/DC gig would be the way to go.

via Twitter Web Client

“Three-quarters of SMEs do not have a social media policy.” Quickly, Dr Watson! More snake oil! http://bit.ly/bpIMmZ

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon Au contraire! I think wearing a dinosaur t-shirt to AC/DC would be more than appropriate.

I have a brief spot on Radio 2SER’s “The Fourth Estate” at 9am tomorrow. 107.3 FM or podcast at http://bit.ly/75Vhl Ping @gabfran

Inside Story has yet another analysis of the iiNet case. Anyone would think it was important. http://bit.ly/cFWHre

via Twitter Web Client

OK, I’m in studio mode for an hour, recording a radio spot for tomorrow morning. Stand by.

via Twitter Web Client

@gabfran I will gladly pimp my media spots to you individually, yes. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

@princessnowhere I have been doing quite a bit of writing/talking about the iiNet case, so need to sound as if I have half a clue. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to allthepie

@gabfran Yes, I have another piece about the iiNet case coming out soon. Plus I’m mentioning it on a radio spot again tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

Also, @newmatilda has a legal analysis of the iiNet case by an actual lawyer. http://bit.ly/cBFksi

via Twitter Web Client

I see @newmatilda has done an excellent cartoon about the law. http://bit.ly/c5vqEM

via Twitter Web Client

@gabfran I did indeed read @robcorr’s summary of the iiNet decision. It triggered this http://bit.ly/b6Fe6V

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ShoesandYoga

No @gabfran I don’t think it’s possible to read all the Copyright Act in one go. Just bits referenced by Cowdroy J in the iiNet case.

via Twitter Web Client

Also, I think reading the Copyright Act is making my head go funny. http://bit.ly/131Uk

via Twitter Web Client

Story filed! That all required a good deal more effort than it should have. I demand a refund on this Thursday, it’s defective.

via Twitter Web Client

@crikey_news Your home page link to “Internet Explorer 6: The True Hollywood Story” is geb0rken. You have removed all joy from my morning.

@Secret_Sydney I don’t mind of a sekrit watering hole “ain’t pretty”, as long as it isn’t too busy on Friday evenings.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Secret_Sydney

@ApostrophePong I’m happy to follow up that unlicensed use of your photo if you like? I do a very good threatening phone call or letter.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to ApostrophePong

Postcode, click. “The site’s URL may not be displayed on any website without Woolworths’ written permission.” Fuckwits. http://bit.ly/bhaXlF

For various reasons, I am no longer in the CBD. That’s what you wanted me to say, isn’t it, Officer?

via Cloudhopper

OH: “Look, the fact is I work in an advertising agency. It’s as simple as that, OK?”

via Cloudhopper

I am in the SEKRIT location, preparing myself for an influx of dodgy humans.

via Twitter Web Client

Whatever your question, the answer is probably “because people are stupid”. Or “sharks”.

via Cloudhopper

Are there actually any sekrit quiet little drinking spots in the Sydney CBD on a Friday night?

via Cloudhopper

Tunnelling under your city.

In the age of everyone as a contractor, isn’t the banks’ distinction of “business” and “personal” accounts rather quaint.

@SnarkyPlatypus Democracy is a PR program run by the Australian Hotels Association.

RT @crikey_news: Crikey team does the Rockwiz double and admits our first album and first gig http://bit.ly/abuRRy [I’ve added mine too.]

via Twitter Web Client

Hah! @damonism @notrez Nah I just re-tethered it to my laptop and used SkypeOut. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

It seems that my phone doesn’t want to deal with, like, phone calls. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @mjec: Well it uses ActiveSync as the sync protocol but it’s notably NOT using Exchange in the back end.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @trib: Even more interesting is that Google’s over-the-air sync for Google Apps uses Exchange back end too http://bit.ly/duI8am

via Twitter Web Client

Why Internode chose Microsoft Exchange. The key was Apple’s Snow Leopard, of all things. http://bit.ly/dhRsac

(Note that combining the facts in my last two tweets indicates a certain lack of sense on my part.)

Dear Oracle, it’s lovely that you’re advertising on Crikey, but FFS don’t animate your own cursors on screen. It’s lame and confusing.

via Twitter Web Client

Moderately gruntled, which is good.

Oh dear, did I really say “I’m not suggesting that Facebook is necessarily evil”? I did. http://bit.ly/9KI6gY

RT @deptofinternets: Replace your traditional definition of “burger” with “marriage”, and your self-hating intolerance is revealed!

@deconstructo You are deluded. There is no such thing as a “satay tofu burger”. http://bit.ly/aURiH3

@R_Chirgwin Wasn’t Jan Meijer a lovely chap! I also spoke with him for “Patch Monday”. Lots of good stuff on online identification.

@jdub If a “witness” can’t tell the difference between A Big White Grey Thing and a Pissy Little Brown Thing, they are not a witness.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to jdub

Helpful imagery. This is a wobbegong http://bit.ly/9Lk21S and this is a great white shark http://bit.ly/bsHvGV

How the fuck does “a witness” confuse a wobbegongs for a great white shark? http://bit.ly/aUcyKl

Do not encourage the use of the ukulele. I repeat. Do. Not. Encourage. The. Use. Of. The. Ukulele.

I see @abcnews is going with this “Snowmageddon” wankery. Sheep! Use grown-up words! I’d like to have some pride in my national broadcaster!

via Twitter Web Client

@trib SA laws extend “identify-yourself during election period” to all writers, commenters on “online journals”. Poorly worded, ambiguous.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

Yes @trib my article on SA’s electoral laws. @iBleeter and I must agree to disagree about it being “censorship”. http://bit.ly/9Grufl

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, this seems to be more your world-class athleticism. http://bit.ly/d5xB21

Oh. My insurance premium funders have just taken $409.27 from my bank account without any signed paperwork. Bonus. Sigh.

via Twitter Web Client

Yes @SnarkyPlatypus that’s definitely what we saw on Fox Sports 1 last night. http://bit.ly/9tH0im “World class cage fighting action” FTW!

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Alas, Fox Sports will not let us discover what we saw last night. http://bit.ly/6DQhXD

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est vendredi! Je suis impatient de kiwis, des orages et peut-être même de la vodka. Et vous?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Yes @iDarryl I did get the APRA/AMCOS music licensing fees for webcasts / podcasts, can email them to anyone interested.

via Twitter Web Client

Wow! @zdnetaustralia is now doing transcripts of “Patch Monday” podcasts? http://bit.ly/bNf5zo I feel special!

@Pollytics Have you noticed Hungry Beast’s McNair poll on internet filtering? http://bit.ly/8Y2wGI Worth an analysis?

Sat plan: Ponder the balance of my various media projects; gym & late lunch; quiet evening preparing for the New Moon tomorrow.

@unsungsongs I suggest that when you moved house you put your video camera second from the left, third shelf down.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to unsungsongs

@crikey_news “The Life and Times of Internet Explorer 6” works now. http://bit.ly/9D1T3i Must’ve been a temporary glitch, thank you.

@ApostrophePong Also telling everyone you’re applying for a job at ASIO will tend to make you ineligible.
