@therevmountain No, I don’t generally watch TV. How could you tell?

What is this turgid shit? This is a MELODY? Emperor’s New Fucking Clothes at work here, people!

via TweetDeck

“This one is basically a melody-based opera”? Mr Beresford, what does that even mean? The reporter let it got thru to the keeper too. Fail.

via TweetDeck

Jesus! You can taste his fucking hair products now, can’t you!

Just how far up did your tongue go, mate?

If I write a book, can I have a shirt like that? Or do I have to recycle a tea towel like you did?

No, you ignorant woman! “Twitter” doesn’t reveal the subject of an injunction, PEOPLE do. As they always have in their conversations.

via TweetDeck

“Chris Uhlmann explains.” Is that a sentence?

via TweetDeck

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: $4000 for a babby bison. we could go halves. Feed us for months. [There’s so many other possibilities too.]

via TweetDeck

The Atlantis landing, @jg_rat? Nah. While it looks cool, it’s about time that dangerous POS was retired. Sunk cost fallacy FTL.

via TweetDeck

Oh Christ. Judith Fucking Lucy. Get me a bucket.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, @7PMProject, your panel’s commentary on Facebook is way, way behind the pace. I’ll be in MEL next week.

via TweetDeck

Some man staring at the camera claims that “at any time there are 80,000 pedophiles trawling the internet”. I like his eyes.

via TweetDeck

Oh here we go. Let’s make Facebook fix parents’ inability to communicate with their children. At least @7PMProject asks sane questions.

via TweetDeck

So what should I watch next? @7PMProject?

via TweetDeck

Oh. The housing bubble bursts tomorrow night. So why did you buy such a huge house, you idiot?

via TweetDeck

How long is this ad break?

via TweetDeck

“It still kills germs… it never felt that good!”

via TweetDeck

Still to come. “The housing bubble is about to burst… on the brink. Which suburbs will surge, and which will plummet?”

via TweetDeck

Danger! Chiropractic Australia reports surge in Zumba-related injuries.

Everywoman punter says she’s from Western Australia and she love it.

Reporter recites numerical factoids about Zumba that you could read for yourself on their Wikipedia page.

Zumba zumba something something reporter shouting over music to prove he’s on location.

“It unblocks your nose quickly without that nasty dripping down your throat.”

via TweetDeck

Coming up after the break, “Brand power. How products gain our trust… and how they lose it. And Zumba!”

via TweetDeck

I imagine that Channel Seven would have no interest whatsoever in that line of argument, would they Mr Stokes? Cunts.

via TweetDeck

“It’s disgraceful,” says some media expert I’ve never heard of. “It’s loopy land,” he says. “They’re not Darth Vader.”

via TweetDeck

Next story. Concerns about the media, and calls for inquiries following Murdoch thing. “Even here.” apparently. EVEN IN AUSTRALIA!

via TweetDeck

They have helpful links on their website, so it’s OK. Thank you, Channel Seven!

via TweetDeck

There is ominous music.

via TweetDeck

Clearly we need a new law. “You may not do something what some other person might get upset about and you are a cunt.”

via TweetDeck

She seems unable to understand that the problem is not the law, but the selfish cunts who challenge the dead person’s will.

via TweetDeck

“It’s enabling people to destroy families,” says some woman. This next story is about people being able to challenge wills.

via TweetDeck

“They should be G-rated,” says some random man. Do they not realise what a woman in a bikini probably IS G-rated?

via TweetDeck

Someone called Suzy says it’s wrong for there to be X-rated material on billboards. “You can’t escape them,” she says.

via TweetDeck

They now ask an advertising executive whether sex sells. “Yes,” he says.

via TweetDeck

In the next story, billboards that have women in bikinis on them. Lyle Shelton does not like Apparently all of this is news.

via TweetDeck

The exclusive story is about a shop. It has lower margins and prices. Customers of the shop tell the camera what they paid for things.

via TweetDeck

I am improving my knowledge of the world by watching “Today Tonight”. They have an exclusive story, apparently.

ABC’s Afghanistan correspondent Sally Sara is now on Twitter as @sallysaraABC, poor thing.

@arionian “Why?” Um, events have just unfolded such that Melbourne hasn’t been on my agenda.

via TweetDeck

There’s hipsters wherever you go, @anthonycole, just like E Coli and herpes.

via TweetDeck

Wow I just checked. It’s been 5 years since I’ve been in Melbourne!

via TweetDeck

Confirmed. I’m in Melbourne Wed-Thu next week covering IBM http://arseh.at/96c for @zdnetaustralia flying back to Sydney on Fri.

via TweetDeck

On hold for ABC @936hobart to talk hackings and stuffz. Live stream at http://arseh.at/960

via TweetDeck

Mainstream journalists are shocked by every little thing every single day. Have they never experienced anything before? Or just no memory?

via TweetDeck

I’m talking about the Tasmanian govt hack on ABC @936hobart at 1630 AEST. Live stream at http://arseh.at/960

via TweetDeck

Me at CSO: “Hackers target Tasmanian government website” http://arseh.at/965

via TweetDeck

@thepatus Oh dear. My tweet was missing an apostrophe. I am somewhat embarrassed.

via TweetDeck in reply to thepatus

@sharpcontrast @RealNickHodge @purserj Judge for yourself, Good People. http://arseh.at/964 CSIRO always denied the rent boy thing.

via TweetDeck

OK… being smiled at by an Australian Government agency is, I must say, weird and a just little bit creepy.

via TweetDeck

@AusLawReform Goodness you’re rather efficient today! I also love seeing the arseh.at URLs combined with the nations Coat of Arms.

via TweetDeck in reply to AusLawReform

And a bonus third CSO story has just been filed. That, and interviews for a forthcoming feature… I have been so productive today!

via TweetDeck

Me at CSO: “Watchdogs welcome Australia’s right-to-privacy move” http://arseh.at/963

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC @936hobart at 1630 AEST talking this faked govt email. http://arseh.at/95z Is it a hack? Live stream at http://arseh.at/960

Second CSO story filed. And now to prepare for my 1400 interview about SCADA security and firewalls. I have a wonderful life.

via TweetDeck

I’ll be in Melbourne Wed-Thu next week, schedule TBA. You have been warned.

“The Prime Minister is in Moorooka and will visit a Woolworths Petrol Station”, says the media release. She’s got such a cool job!

via TweetDeck

@thorfi I’m in a very blurry state today thanks to insomnia, so nothing is clear. That makes SQL even MOAR FUNZ!

via TweetDeck in reply to thorfi

“Transactions”? “Rollback”? You are all such wimps!

via TweetDeck

Done. The universe did not cave in. I did have a backup. I’m not 100% dumb, @dannolan @Rubenerd @LittleCatDesign @dannolan @thorfi.

via TweetDeck

Executing raw hand-typed SQL UPDATE commands against a live database. Because, you know, I don’t do bungee jumping.

via TweetDeck

First CSO story for the day filed! I must do another one for this afternoon, but for now I take a breather.

via TweetDeck

I’ve been setting the record straight wherever possible, @InnerWesty, such as this radio interview. Ignore my headline. http://arseh.at/95p

via TweetDeck

RT @crispin_harris: ‘Widely referred to as the Phone Hacking scandal’ ?? [That works. Includes the keywords but avoids idiocy. Ta.]

via TweetDeck

I refuse to refer to as “phone hacking” in CSO. Phone is wrong. Hacking is mostly wrong too. Must I keep it for recognition?

via TweetDeck

@jillhill99 The long game, internationally. There can be no ammunition for the argument that GITMO operated unlawfully etc. /cc @sylmobile

via TweetDeck in reply to jillhill99

@jillhill99 The DPP is surely just following (political) orders? I don’t know the subtleties of the chain of command there. /cc @sylmobile

via TweetDeck in reply to jillhill99

Thu plan, unordered: Write on privacy laws for CSO; re-write proposal bits; interview re SCADA security; plan “Patch Monday” podcast; comms.

via TweetDeck

@jillhill99 You’re probably reacting more literally to a random comment than it’s worth. I know the answer to that. /cc @sylmobile

via TweetDeck in reply to jillhill99

I say that without having read a single Dan Brown book, but intelligent people are meant to slag off what they haven’t read, right?

via TweetDeck

RT @sylmobile: Are the royalties that David Hick’s earns from his book really “Proceeds from Crime”? [No, but Dan Brown’s is.]

via TweetDeck

Thursday, properly. A magnificent view makes up for feeling crap. Mostly.

via TweetDeck

@jackpiggott You have my sympathy, Sir. Oh well, we’ll live.
