@juhasaarinen @bengrubb Absolutely. 6-out-of-10 pooeyness and 60C cooking are core elements of the story. Need to be in there.

Dear @ABCmediawatch, you should congratulate @bengrubb for proper investigative chook poo journalism this week.

via TweetDeck

@bengrubb Excellent. Well that’s real journalism then. I take back everything critical I’ve ever said about Fairfax. How pooey was it?

via TweetDeck in reply to bengrubb

@bengrubb Out of curiosity, did you head out to smell the chook poo for yourself?

via TweetDeck in reply to bengrubb

@juhasaarinen No, I did not mean to write “divershity”. I wouldn’t stoop that low. I am a Writer of Quality.

“Does anyone actually care if Fred Nile is occasionally whacking off over dwarf porn?” Ah, Crikey commenters! http://bit.ly/csuwEX

via TweetDeck

@bengrubb @juhasaarinen No need to apologise, Ben. Fairfax needs to maintain a wide variety of poo in its stories. Diversity of media FTW!

@mogams Indeed. Apparently politicians have to be less human that the rest of us, or suffer the angry wolves of the tabloid media.

via TweetDeck in reply to mogams

@mogams I too am puzzled by the puritanism of [gasp!] an adult watching legal pornography. That’s another story.

How come this @abcnews story on Bob Katter’s wishlist http://bit.ly/awz2XD doesn’t include or link to a list of the wishes?

@AndrewRobbMP “It’s inconceivable” is a logical fallacy: argument from incredulity / lack of imagination. http://bit.ly/bYwj8Q

Crikey story filed!

@RWKrajewski For the same reason, the Coaltion’s planned wireless investments don’t appear in the cash bottom line.

via TweetDeck in reply to AusRichie

@RWKrajewski You do know the NBN is in the budget and pre-election statement, yeah? And that assets aren’t cash? By all means critique that.

@henraah Well, yes, I’d like to see the fight between an MP and the IT folks. Would the latter have the guts to deny an MP’s network access?

Is earthwave’s 2007 multi-year contract still in force? They still list NSW Parliament under “Our Clients”. http://bit.ly/cwkysJ

Actually there IS a network acceptable use policy for NSW MPs and their staff, @henraah, I have a copy right here. Dated 2002.

This ARN story says earthwave was responsible for URL and web filtering for NSW Parliament from 2007. http://bit.ly/98rG5n

Earthwave’s 2007 media release says the firewall and access control hardware at NSW Parliament is Cisco.

In 2007, earthwave signed a “multiyear” contract to do NSW Parliament’s managed infosec. http://bit.ly/bZk6hj [PDF]

@henraah NSW Parliament is a different policy environment from the NSW public service, but yes it raises the issue of false accusations.

Victor, Nigerian bouncer at The Duke, next to Enmore Theatre, confirms that I don’t want to join this crowd. Nigerians know suffering.

You can say one thing about Enmore Theatre, they’re not judgmental.

@BernardKeane It’s ok, I have cat litter and an emergency box of wine.

At the bottle shop, Winston reports that the 1927 concert-goers have been buying a variety of cheap pre-mixed spirits in cans.

via TweetDeck

Theme seems to be mid-30s women with peroxide hair, leopard print scarves and heels, accompanied by bulky wog blokes in t-shirts and jeans.

via TweetDeck

Who are all these dull losers on Enmore Road? Oh. The audience for the 1927 concert. As you were.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s ok, the has caused me to abandon my location and go in search of cat litter.

@mumbrella Oh no! I cherish you for exposing this idiotic, hollow corporate language so we can mock it. Your role is vital!

OH: “They’re all lazy jerks anyway. It’s the internet, of course, they learn it at school.”

You can overcome this disappointment. It could be worse. Much worse.

@bengrubb It may be but I’m still trying to fathom the fish tank reference and Centrelink.

via TweetDeck in reply to bengrubb

I should go home and feed the cats, but this conversation is compelling.

via TweetDeck

OH: “For some reason he’s got to have a large fish tank. Well, you know… I told Centrelink, but I just couldn’t be bothered.”

I am not an expert on milk pricing, despite my dairy-ridden youth. I pass on hearsay. I think that makes me a “journalist”.

via TweetDeck

OH: “The thing is, at Franklins two litres of milk is $2.30. It’s worth walking in to Newtown to save the 50 cents.”

via TweetDeck

OH: “I’ve never liked hanging around in Newtown. It’s full of druggies and drongos,” says the old woman having dinner in… Newtown.

OH: “Sydney will be a nice city when they finish building it. Someone said so in the 50s.”

Who is your local member, by the way?

@bengrubb @juhasaarinen I somehow suspect we won’t make a trending topic on a Friday night though.

via TweetDeck

@RWKrajewski BTW, I’m not defending the NBN overall, merely pointing out that your critique misses important points.
