Hmm… My fingers are being uncooperative today. Please translate my typos as you wish.

via TweetDeck

Ya also mfor the various suggestions on stopping Fairfax’s autoplay videos. I’ll blog about them later today.

via TweetDeck

RT @phildobbie: Imagine your frustration though, if you turned on Channel 7 and it said “click here to play”. [Yes, but that’s television.]

via TweetDeck

Dear Fairfax Arsefats, if I wanted to watch the video I would have pressed the “play” button. Surely you know this by now?

via TweetDeck

Channel NIne has an “exclusive” interview with Bert Newton? Gosh that’ll win you a Walkley, eh?

via TweetDeck

Oh do try to keep up with current events.

via TweetDeck

Dear Political Journos, total 2CP votes nationally has no constitutional validity whatsoever, SO STOP THIS WANKERY!

via TweetDeck

The verb you are looking for there is “play” or “fiddle”.

via TweetDeck

Dear IT Gadget Reviewers, trying something at a few random locations is not a “test”. Testing is an engineering discipline.

via TweetDeck

RT @bengrubb: Richards has fixed his article. Woop. [Yeah, gigabytes, megabytes, like, it’s all the same, right?]

via TweetDeck

“Coalition one big happy family, says Truss” http://bit.ly/bkr9HQ In other news, porcine aviation now widespread.

via TweetDeck

@DanielleWarby Just tested. No, the Townie’s internets are geb0rken. Unwired’s uConnect is full of fail.

via TweetDeck in reply to DanielleWarby

@ragnarok1971 I agree. A “do not like” button should be everywhere. Except on my stuff, obviously.

via TweetDeck in reply to ragnarok1971

@DanielleWarby I bring my own internets to the Townie, so theirs may still be broken. And next time I see you, please say hello!

via TweetDeck in reply to DanielleWarby

Oh hang on, that might not be ethical. Only click if you do actually like it.

via TweetDeck

Click on the “Like” button you cunts.

Re-pimping my @zdnetaustralia Patch Monday podcast: “BYO computers: cloud security risk?” http://bit.ly/9um1Kf

A “35Gbps Wireless Modem”? Orly? David Richards, you are an arsehat. http://bit.ly/c2y2GI HT @bengrubb

via TweetDeck

I do love the way the entire political media in this country is currently lecturing three people about what they should do.

via TweetDeck

@franksting Yeah, God just gets it right sometimes. It’s glorious.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Oh that’s right, it’s Monday and that goddam television program is on again.

via TweetDeck

Now laughing at all the DMs I’m getting wanting a link to the smeggery mentioned previously. Why are people so unkind?

via TweetDeck

@franksting Yes, Sir, this is the Town Hall Hotel in Newtown, And that blast of sunset lasted just a few minutes.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Laughing at the most gorgeous piece of smeggery I’ve just seen, but which I can’t link to because they’re probably watching.

@PointZeroOne Sometimes things are said which are particularly wrong, and they are not said by me.

RT @KyBusiness: Infigen (ex-Babcock & Brown Wind) CEO: we’d benefit from greater Greens influence - they can work with big business [Gosh!]

via TweetDeck

I have ensconced myself in a location with 240V, 7.7 standard drinks and a view of some minor interest.

via TweetDeck

And Bill Heffernan, yes, obviously.

via TweetDeck

@SuperOpinion Oh sorry, Sir. Monday afternoons have become a brain-dead time for me. I have trouble processing subtlety.

via TweetDeck in reply to SuperOpinion

@SuperOpinion Who is George Orwell? Or who is Robert Graves?

via TweetDeck in reply to SuperOpinion

@mpesce I have always been a fan of plain speaking. As was George Orwell and Robert Graves.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Given that it’s clear who you’re writing about, I think your story should also include the phrase “self-aggrandising wanker”.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce I would only use the word n00b if you’re going for a sense of nostalgia in geekland. But that’s just me.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@firstdogonmoon I know, but the lies are alwways so transparent. Lies! Lies!

via TweetDeck in reply to firstdogonmoon

It does look like contacting the Crikey office this afternoon might be… unfruitful, however.

via TweetDeck

I suppose at some point this week I should think of some more words to write for money.

via TweetDeck

Hah! Pi to 138 decimal places is SO EASY to tweet! http://bit.ly/c7Ngmq You are full of fail, @jpoh!

via TweetDeck

Or a dead dog, thrown down a deep well for play.

@SnarkyPlatypus I see that your training in money laundering is coming in handy in your new role as “refunds processor”. Congratulations.

The audio of @BernardKeane’s “Politics behind the Scenes” at ANU is now online http://bit.ly/d2iyGu

via TweetDeck

What disappoints me is that all this time could be spent analysing the policies rushed out before polling day.

via TweetDeck

Or maybe an article about what “the Australian people” intended, as if they’re some hive-mind with a single thought.

via TweetDeck

Here’s an idea. Why don’t journos write pieces telling the three independents what they think they should do? That’d be original.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Non, l’oiseau qui ne peut pas voler n’est pas nécessaire. Un peu de chaleur et d’étirement suffira.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Also, my understanding is that the Coaltion is not a “party” in law, so it’s Abbott’s tongue versus Truss’ too. Measure, lads!

via TweetDeck

Has anyone added up all the MPs tongue lengths yet, to see which party is “ahead”?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour.Mon dos se sent comme un serpent après qu’il a été chassé par un tracteur. Un tracteur vert. Et vous?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Re-emerges, with intermittent success.

via TweetDeck

Emerges, kinda.

via TweetDeck

Oh, fight amongst yourselves now… [exit]

via TweetDeck

If you need proof then http://youtu.be/msbkw8g3… HT someone who is probably too embarrassed to own up.

via TweetDeck

Actually there is something wrong with ukuleles per se. They’re shit.

via TweetDeck

There’s nothing wrong with ukuleles per se, just the white middle class westerners imagining they’re SO fashionable for liking them.

via TweetDeck

Should any of you pedophiles want a ukulele, my client Fender Australia can provide a nice one. http://bit.ly/bzvndA [Unpaid plug.]

via TweetDeck

Sorry, links to “World’s best ukulele player” are pretty much the musical equivalent of links to “World’s most elegant pedophile”.

via TweetDeck

That’s a fucking ukulele isn’t it? Have you no self-respect?

via TweetDeck

RT @jasonlangenauer: Oh, this is good: Charlie Brooker in the Grauniad on the “ground zero mosque” madness: http://bit.ly/bsPpdx [It is.]

I’m out of touch. Since when has @leighsales been in lower case? How very modern.

via TweetDeck

@deptofinternets I am not “cynical”. Ever.

via TweetDeck

Deadlines, @bernietb? Then don’t call it a “test”. Call it a “first look” or a “trial” or something.

via TweetDeck

Not only engineers can test, @alexkidman, but just a LITTLE science here would help. The media is too pwned by the vendors IMO.

via TweetDeck

@TheFacelessSpin And if The Ranga wants to claim 2CP total votes as relevant, then she’s an arsehat too.
