I have no desire to see Monckton deported, @stevejme. I’m a fan of free speech. He has a right to say his piece.

via TweetDeck

@Wendycarlisle That “challenging”, eh? I have no scotch here, so it’ll wait a day or two. I’ve heard good words said, however.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wendycarlisle

I have yet to listen to @Wendycarlisle’s “The Lord Monckton roadshow” yet. It’s might be too much. http://arseh.at/947

via TweetDeck

@smperris No problem. That sort of thing used to be a “job”, kinda. Another set of now-useless crap in my head.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

@smperris Erm, Monckton IS a Peer. He’s a Viscount. And therefore a Lord. Just not a member of the House of Lords.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

Apparently Parliament’s letter to Monckton isn’t clear enough, @SMCoates http://arseh.at/943

via TweetDeck

@ssharwood Yep, I usually pay for “The Monthly” on paper too. I’ve found it a handy on-train read when 3G reception is shite.

via TweetDeck in reply to ssharwood

You may be interested in this story by @MargaretSimons on @abcmarkscott and the challenges he faces, @ssharwood http://arseh.at/940

via TweetDeck

@ssharwood I agree that the ABC had been attempting great things. Not all have worked, and the budgets are too small, but it’s a start.

via TweetDeck in reply to ssharwood

@ssharwood Oh I’m not referring to any bit. It’s just that many discussions of what the ABC should do imagine limits that don’t exist.

via TweetDeck in reply to ssharwood

@iStalker72 Yeah I concluded that about 10 hours ago and filed my story accordingly. http://arseh.at/93k I may do an update tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to iStalker72

@ssharwood Have you considered your question in terms of the ABC Charter, rather than hand-waving? /cc @mpesce @bajopants

via TweetDeck

@macleanbrendan I buggered it up, though. It’s not from ABC TV.

via TweetDeck in reply to macleanbrendan

UK Parliament’s cease and desist letter to Viscount Monckton of Brenchley. http://arseh.at/93y

via TweetDeck

ABC UK Newsgate’s choice to run the 1966 doco on Rupert Murdoch was inspired. This tedious onamism James Murdoch, rather less so.

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Did you know banging your head against the table forces your body to absorb alcohol more quickly?

via TweetDeck

Banging my head against the table. Repeatedly.

via TweetDeck

Now @michaelmeloni @Tim_Coronel you two need to compare legal notes, I think. /cc @JohnBirmingham

via TweetDeck

RT @JohnBirmingham: OK. Gig time. Let’s fuck this cat. [Not long ago, you weren’t allowed to do that on stage.]

via TweetDeck

@tobiasnixon TV? This was on 7.30 a week ago? Thank you. Though I wasn’t sure I explained very much at all.

via TweetDeck in reply to tobiasnixon

Sadly, @thornae, I did get the tin eye tis spampot. Mind you, I don’t seem to get as much spam as some others. I cope.

via TweetDeck

Hah! That’s funny, ABC. All that test tone, and then when the program starts it’s clipping like a shearer on meth.

via TweetDeck

I do not have 1kHz tinnitus, @Tim_Coronel, but I can tell in a moment that the ABC is using 400Hz. :P

via TweetDeck

Listening to test tone before a one-off broadcast is comforting, actually. My old radio producer brain says “Relax, the OB is working.”

via TweetDeck

ABC UK Newsgate is the digital radio channel from 2000 AEST, but there’s a stream at http://arseh.at/93u currently with a test tone.

via TweetDeck

Thanks, @mpesce, for reminding us of Adam Curtis’ “Rupert Murdoch: A Portrait of Satan” http://arseh.at/4uy

William Shatner kicked off Google+ for “violating standards”. http://arseh.at/93t

New blog post: “Talking LulzSec vs Murdoch on ABC 774 Melbourne”, with the audio of same. http://arseh.at/93s

via TweetDeck

So at 3pm it was 2C up here, apparent temperature -1.6C. And then the Katoomba weather station failed. Wish I’d picked up wine yesterday.

via TweetDeck

@martinbarry Ta for the typo report. I’ll have to tell @crikey_news. I don’t have access to the CMS, otherwise I’d do it myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to martinbarry

RT @dr_nic: Can’t quite bring myself to read a press release about an organisation now having over 300 followers on Twitter… [Pls send!]

via TweetDeck

On hold for ABC @774melbourne to talk, you guessed it, the @LulzSec hack of News Int. Live stream at http://arseh.at/897

via TweetDeck

RT @Warlach: My iPhone just insisted on autocorreecting Newtown first to ‘bestial’ and then to ‘jewfish’… [Class, Apple, all class.]

via TweetDeck

Time lapse of 12,000 nytimes.com home page screenshots in a few minutes. http://arseh.at/93p HT various, thanks.

via TweetDeck

It appears that @LulzSec is having trouble proving itself to an editor. Mate, you should try writing for them!

via TweetDeck

I’m told it was snowing at Blackheath earlier, but nothing at Wentworth Falls yet. Though it IS a mite parky out./cc @nathanjstitt

via TweetDeck

RT @nathanjstitt: Powdery white stuff is coming down hard. Great Western @ Lithgow. Mitchell @ Yetholme closed. Roads around Jenolan too.

via TweetDeck

It seems @abcgoldcoast’s phone and my phone don’t wish to cooperate.

via TweetDeck

On hold for @abcgoldcoast to talk the @LulzSec hack of News International. Live stream at http://arseh.at/8gb

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC @774melbourne at 1604 AEST [in 75 mins] talking LulzSec’s hack of News Int. Live stream at http://arseh.at/897

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge Whatever happened to Respectember and Fuckofftober? The first one was an ABC thing.

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC Gold Coast at 1510 AEST [in 70 mins] talking LulzSec’s hack of News Int. Live stream at http://arseh.at/8gb

via TweetDeck

I do like the fact that the background image on @LulzSec’s Twitter profile is Nyan cat.

via TweetDeck

It’s raining and my internets have gone to shit.

via TweetDeck

Me at Crikey: “LulzSec 1, Murdoch 0: News Int, the hacker, becomes the hacked” http://arseh.at/93k

via TweetDeck

I am lively and intelligent, I am fun-loving and nimble. Am I not, @mpesce?

via TweetDeck

RT: Me at CSO: “LulzSec hacks UK’s “The Sun”, News International” http://arseh.at/93a [I’ll have more on this story later today.]

via TweetDeck

Tue plan, PM edition: Write more on LulzSec vs Murdoch in between radio spots about same, all while watching the rain that just started

via TweetDeck

Should anyone care, The Sun is back online. http://www.thesun.co.uk/

via TweetDeck

RT @robcorr: Clarification: Kirby didn’t write about “the sodomy of fence”, but “the sodomy offence”, a subtle but important difference.

via TweetDeck

RT @purserj: the bom says you’re going to get wet: http://arseh.at/93g [Uhoh. The Precipitation Cometh.]

via TweetDeck

I see a beautiful blue sky as I cook lunch, but the forecast up here says “8C, showers, snow at times”. Confused.

via TweetDeck

I think I need to eat before writing anything else. Are you going to let me eat breakfast now, @LulzSec?

via TweetDeck

Your Twitter followers are OK, @dmflower. It’s just that the lookup to display the count is turned off while Twitter traffic is high.

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed. I’ve given them a selection of offensive headlines to choose from.

via TweetDeck

That News International killed their own DNS is my suspicion too, @TLydon007, but suspicions are not facts and I must report accordingly.

via TweetDeck

@LulzSec Are you actually claiming responsibility for the News International DNS being down as well? That’s not clear…

via TweetDeck in reply to LulzSec

Updated story at CSO: “LulzSec hacks UK’s “The Sun”, News International” http://arseh.at/93a

via TweetDeck

Oh right! I’ve just worked out why this tomato juice tastes weird. There’s no vodka in it.

via TweetDeck

ROFL! Sky News reports @LulzSec’s News International hack as being done by “The Louise Boat” http://youtu.be/DG7IURgr…

via TweetDeck

@jkerrison @Get_Shortened Nothing “very strange” about it. Twitter was merely overloaded for a while. As the error message said.

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

Met at CSO: “LulzSec hacks UK’s “The Sun”, News International” http://www.cso.com.au/ar…

via TweetDeck

RT @LulzSec: News International’s DNS servers (link web addresses to servers) and all 1,024 web addresses are down. [Right then.]

via TweetDeck

Cooks, broth etc.

via TweetDeck

RT @LittleCatDesign: I believe N = Nanananahnahnaaahna [Nicely played.]

via TweetDeck

So, all News International sites are now offline. If you’re scoring this, what is it? “LulzSec N, News Intl 0.” But N equals…?

via TweetDeck

@Mafesto Well, yes, DNS lookups aren’t browser-specific. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to Mafesto

“Firefox can’t find the server at www.thesun.co.uk”? Well, I guess that’s a defence against hacking…

via TweetDeck

Thanks again to everyone who confirmed bits and pieces of the LulzSec story for me. Much appreciated. Too many to reply individually.

via TweetDeck

CSO story filed! Whew! I file by email. Let’s see how long it takes for it to appear on the website.

via TweetDeck

Ah no, not redirected to the Twitter feed. Redirected to the fake story as per my blog post. http://arseh.at/936 I’ll go with it working.

via TweetDeck

OK, I’ve got lots of others confirming that redirect. My guess is the Next G link I’m on had it all cached to buggery. Thanks!

via TweetDeck

Thanks for that @andrew_hedge @katinacurtis etc, I have a screenshot already but the redirect didn’t work for me and some others, it seems.

via TweetDeck

No no, I know what it’s doing now. The Sun’s DDoS protection will have kicked in. I need confirmation from 0730 AEST on fake story redirect.

via TweetDeck

Did anyone witness for themselves the @LulzSec redirect from thesun.co.uk to the fake story? It didn’t work for me. Just want to confirm.

via TweetDeck

Tue plan, replacing anything I might have had in mind beforehand: Cover the @LulzSec hack for CSO and Crikey and… anyone else?

via TweetDeck

I really do with @LulzSec would time their hacks so I could have a decent breakfast before having to cover a breaking story.

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “LulzSec claims to hack The Sun: screenshot” http://arseh.at/936

via TweetDeck

RT @LulzSec: TheSun.co.uk now redirects to our twitter feed. Hello, everyone that wanted to visit The Sun! How is your day? Good? Good!

via TweetDeck

RT @imtimhanlon: Use us.gizmodo.com :) [Cheers! See, you are NOT a cunt. This much is obvious.]

via TweetDeck

FFS Gizmodo.com! Don’t fucking well redirect me to Gizmodo.com.au unless I can get to all the current stories, you stupid cunts!

via TweetDeck

Bother. I should’ve done that screenshot in a way that also showed the URL in a browser. Oh well, I’ll wrap it in a blog post shortly.

via TweetDeck

Indeed, @mgherman, the claim from @LulzSec is that the site is now overloaded. 287k followers. Probably triggered DDoS protection.

via TweetDeck

RT @LulzSec: So we have a better idea… hold on… [Oh, this is going to be an interesting morning…]

via TweetDeck

Screenshot of @LulzSec story inserted into www.new-times.co.uk/sun/ just now. http://arseh.at/935

via TweetDeck

So @LulzSec is busy hacking The Sun’s home page? I can’t confirm that, but they got this story into News Intl. http://arseh.at/934

via TweetDeck

Microsoft offers US$250,000 bounty for Rustock botnet leaders. Scam? @LiamT reckons not. http://arseh.at/933
