So what non-party non-media-company election websites should I tell ABC Radio about? Once that I haven’t already plugged.

@robbieg8s Indeed, I am tediously printing the PDFs to PDF, because they have carefully blocked “download”. Sigh.

@jasonlangenauer People who imagine that telephones increase RI automatically have no RI at all.

via TweetDeck

@franksting Of course, yes, Grayndler is much moar biggerer than mere Marrickville. Here be mappage! http://bit.ly/924jVf

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@jasonlangenauer There is a distinct lack of RI amongst those queuing through the night to buy telephones.

via TweetDeck

@franksting I’ll check with Antony Green, but currently he’s listing Grayndler as “very safe Labor” http://bit.ly/9G3ZSR @SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Grayndler’s a bit of a candidate backwater too, but then Anthony Albanese will piss it in http://bit.ly/bji4jt

@Nickhodge I don’t know how many arms the Swamp Stilgherrian had! I never saw it, and Ian Livingstone can’t remember which book it was in.

@stuarthorrex No, you don’t understand. Grilled cheese is disgusting. Truly disgusting. It destroys the cheese! BARBARIANS!

@Nickhodge I know only one fictional mention of me, an Ian Livingstone Fighting Fantasy Gamebook. A huge Stilgherrian emerges from a swamp.

@SnarkyPlatypus I have wine but no cheese. Is there some sort of quality cheese delivery service available? [Not a euphemism.]

@BernardKeane I haven’t digested Schwab’s piece yet, I just pasted it in. No brainpower for that sort of thinking. Nice he replied, tho.

That woman’s hair looks like a wig, but it’s clearly attached to her scalp. The only logical conclusion is that her entire head is false.

As if by a different kind if magic, I am at Stanmore station.

@qryss I ding think I am following you. Are you following me?

As if by magic, I am at Central station.

CityRail appears to have given up hope on even guessing an ETA for the Eastern Suburbs and Illawarra lines etc resuming.

Three Mancunian backpackers stand, hands in baggy shorts pockets, thongs, gaping up at the gym opposite. The lads have seen actual women.

Stick insect legs, generous round arse: her torso sits on two Chupa Chups. Her knees do not bend. Black vinyl jacket with hood, yellow fur.

The Hare Krishna number four, and only one is so enthusiastic that he can lift his hands higher than his shoulders. Their drumming is drab.

I have abandoned the railway. Drunk squeally women try to catch cabs which already have fares while their shoes fall off. 6.15pm. Lovely.

via Twitter Web Client

Delays on Eastern Suburbs and South / Illawarra lines at least 20 to 30 minutes.

via Twitter Web Client

At Kings Cross station. Due to a signal failure at Central station we are being indefinitely delayed.

via Twitter Web Client

@jonoabroad Oh. No. Kiwified is a speshul coad werd. It is speshul to speshul peoples.

En route to Kings Cross station and thence Potts Point, briefly. Then…? Moderately acceptable RI at Central.

@bryceroney I’ve always envisaged NSW Governor Marie Bashir as more the hit-woman type, then doing a water-borne escape on Sydney Harbour.

via TweetDeck in reply to bryceroney

@bryceroney Lots of stuff falls constitutionally under the Governor-General, but convention gives the PM actual command of the armed forces.

via TweetDeck in reply to bryceroney

Is the PM permitted to order assassinations under caretaker conventions? Just curious…

@jmacmullin The intention is for NBN fibre to completely replace copper, but customers will be able to opt out. I think that’s a flaw.

via TweetDeck in reply to jmacmullin

Thing is @Asher_Wolf there isn’t actually any news about IT and the election yet. Well, no NEW news. It might best be left a week.

@benmcginnes I’ve already covered the AGD’s discussions with ISPs on data retention in some depth on “Patch Monday” http://bit.ly/aAQWpB

via TweetDeck in reply to benmcginnes

@wolfcat The NBN announcement today is just to release the fine-grained maps of who gets fibre, who wireless, who satellite.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

Oh, “Patch Monday” is a @zdnetaustralia podcast, about IT etc. It doesn’t cover telcos ‘cos that’s @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast.

via TweetDeck

Wondering what I should cover in the “Patch Monday” podcast. There’s really been no IT / Internet-related election news as such so far…

It’ll be interesting to see how many people think that quoting counter-arguments indicates my actual opinion or voting intentions.

@3288chrisc Yes, it’s terrible that the ALP brought Australia thru the GFC in better shape than any Western democracy. Terrible.

@djackmanson “Wait and see” is a good strategy, yes. Just like global warming. Maybe it doesn’t mean anything. Just wait. And see.

Dear Fairfax, did I ASK you to play a video when I visited that web page to read a news story? No, I fucking well did not. So don’t, m’kay?

via TweetDeck

Pro tip: Having a whinge to your friends, who already likely have similar views because they’re your friends, won’t be the answer.

via TweetDeck

Supplementary question: “What will YOU be doing to help sway opinion amongst swinging voters in your nearest marginal electorate?”

via TweetDeck

If folks don’t like the polling reported by Fairfax today, my question to them would be “What are you going to DO about that?”

via TweetDeck

RT @jasonlangenauer: I must admit that when I hear the word ‘sangriafication’ my first thought isn’t that the sangria is administered orally

via TweetDeck

@beeso Them, yes. Note that Schwab now says his gripe is lack of cost-benefit analysis. I think that differs from his original Crikey piece.

via TweetDeck in reply to beeso

@beeso If you do write something, make sure to read the precursor pieces. I’ll be fussy about running it or not. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to beeso

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Malgré tous les efforts de l’hégémonie du chat, je suis presque prêt pour les activités de la journée. Et vous?

Sat plan: 1000 meet @SnarkyPlatypus at Central for our planned walk from East Hills to Petersham for sangrification; that is all.

@beeso I’m more than happy to post responses to Adam Schwab, since I won’t have time to respond until tomorrow at the earliest.
