@nigelwadsworth @SnarkyPlatypus I would like to think that what I say is mostly true.

via TweetDeck

Just in case the new-style RT got lost, this is the press-to-sing quality site of which I speak. arseh.at/smj

via TweetDeck

Just how deep can I dig this hole, I wonder?

via TweetDeck

“Number” of lesbians, @anthonyspiteri, not “amount”. Countable noun. Very important distinction. Unless they sing when you press on them.

anurbanheart So, turns out the Internet DOES have a site where you can play lingerie-clad women as an instrument *eyebrow raise* cupsizechoir.com/?k=1

They don’t have vaginas north of the Tropic of Capricorn.

OwenJones84 Right, that’s it. Richard Dawkins is so irritating I’m converting to evangelical Christianity. Creationism and the full whack.

@mattwarman Advice to Nick Ferrari of @LBC973? Ignore all who suggest he pay attention to Twitter trends and do whatever it is he does.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus At this rate I’m starting to wonder whether I can believe everything I see and hear in the news. :/

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I guess it’s fair to say I don’t want to know the actual answer to that question, but that goes for so many questions really…

via TweetDeck

I wonder whether @4corners’ producers go back through their poo from the previous week and look for signs of worms?

via TweetDeck

Here @MattCowgill ask whether Teh Medias chose to misrepresent the cost of living report or just didn’t understand. arseh.at/sme

via TweetDeck

There’s a fair chance I’ll actually prepare something for that panel, too.

via TweetDeck

A week from tonight I’ll be on this Freedom of Information panel on Sydney. Along with sensible people. arseh.at/smd

via TweetDeck

@dnee Indeed, but that’s a moot point in this instance. It would appear that sales continued despite inconsistent price labelling.

via TweetDeck in reply to dnee

I truly loathe corporate bullshit language like @Typoshop’s “bad experience” that tries to smother an unethical and probably illegal act.

via TweetDeck

“Bad experience” and “pass it in to the team”, @Typoshop? But how will you be making good? /cc @j_hutch @eimabird

via TweetDeck

@dnee “You are entitled to pay the lowest price if more than one price is displayed,” says govt’s factsheet. arseh.at/smc

via TweetDeck in reply to dnee

@dnee My understanding is this isn’t about contract law but consumer law in relation to price labelling.

via TweetDeck in reply to dnee

Well, @j_hutch, @Typoshop’s bio makes them sound stabworthy to begin with, but it’d be good for them to make good to @eimabird I’d say.

via TweetDeck

Erm, that’s not just “bad customer service”, @j_hutch, if true it’s illegal. Why did you let @Typoshop get away with it?

via TweetDeck

So there you go. Profiteering happening already. Thanks, @wolfcat. arseh.at/smb

@R_Chirgwin 50.0V on the battery. She’ll be right.

@kjmci Your venue is the Alexandra Hotel, Leura.

via TweetDeck in reply to kjmci

Wondering how many supermarket security machines have to screech before any staff member actually bothers to investigate.

via TweetDeck

Imagine slaughtering them all en masse post.ly/5MTRJ

via Posterous

I will now brave the Double-Bay-on-Hill that is Leura to find something to take back to eat and drink tonight. Promise no deaths. Probably.

via TweetDeck

RT @caspians: IBM is looking for smart graduates: arseh.at/sm9 [Yeah well good fuckin’ luck there!]

via TweetDeck

Slogans are not insight.

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS don’t RT that one-trick arsehat!

via TweetDeck

@ragnarok1971 Just be thankful you’re already in hospital.

via TweetDeck in reply to ragnarok1971

RT @Stacey0: If you’re in a park in Australia and don’t have a football it’s legal to use an Ibis as a replacement. [True, and encouraged.]

via TweetDeck

‘Entertaining”. Great. Shall I do the little dance as well?

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Yeah well you can keep your expensive Happy Hour schooners and running water and civilisation and roads and, um, shut up.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

RT @zackster: Yours Pynefully RT @EnsignR What valediction does one use when signing off a ranty email? Regards doesn’t seem right.

via TweetDeck

THERE IS ONLY ONE REMEDY TO THE ENTIRE MEDIA NOT BEING RUN BY UNICORNS AND THAT IS HAPPY HOUR $3 SCHOONERS FUCK OFF THE LOT OF YOU ARSEHATS.

via TweetDeck

RT @stokely: Yes, then they grow a single horn from their foreheads before galloping off into the magical forest.

via TweetDeck

Some subeditors discuss the matter before they make significant changes to your copy. Or so I’m told.

via TweetDeck

@networkjanitor I’m talking tomorrow night. I hate to think what I’ll end up paying for mid-week next week. If I can afford it.

via TweetDeck in reply to networkjanitor

Me at @CSO_Australia: ‘Blocking all .info domains is “censorship”: The Greens’, but it’s not a bad idea. arseh.at/sm7

via TweetDeck

Outraged at what I just paid for mid-week 3.5-star accommodation in Sydney thanks to the FaggotFest Surchargeā„¢.

via TweetDeck

Oh Dear God, why did I do that?

via TweetDeck

There is reason to believe that my immediately previous tweet did not accurately reflect the work of Australia’s Defence Forces. Sorry.

via TweetDeck

“Ship’s Company of HMAS Parramatta seized more than 240 kilograms of illegal narcotics… ‘This was a great day,’ Commander Blackburn said.”

via TweetDeck

Oh yeah. I’m on ABC Local Radio nationally tomorrow night from 2200 talking copyright and technology and stuff with Tony Delroy.

via TweetDeck

Normally I despise this bullshit but I’ll actually pay as a hashtag. Well played.

via TweetDeck

Jesus wept, that was the easiest troll in the history of western civilisation!

via TweetDeck

watermelon_man Was there ever a time, excluding Menzies, Fraser, Howard eras, obviously, when the media weren’t trying to destroy an elected government?

MT @AirservicesNews: Thu morning Airservices will tweet air traffic movements at Sydney Airport from 6-9am. Follow using [Um, why?]

via TweetDeck

Story filed for @CSO_Australia. Now, to see what else is happening on Twitter, my email, and everything else.

via TweetDeck

RT @HLMenckenBot: Of all escape mechanisms, death is the most efficient. [Oh I hear ya, brother!]

via TweetDeck

Committing acts of journalism.

via TweetDeck

Distraction. What I said before. Shut up.

via TweetDeck

MT @engochick: You have to be really careful when you use antlers. bit.ly/yTxy4n [THIS IS WHAT I KEEP SAYING!]

via TweetDeck

‘The Moose’s antlers were misleading”? Ah, thank you, @joshgnosis! arseh.at/sm0

via TweetDeck

OK, I must now not distract myself with that stuff, because I have a thing to write for a deadline thing thing.

via TweetDeck

Actually, I think I have Currency Act arse-about. But it’s still wrong for the government to force us to involve a commercial third party.

via TweetDeck

But y’see, @therevmountain, the Currency Act requires that payments must be able to be made in “legal tender”, IIRC.

via TweetDeck

So, Centrelink requiring a bank account to pay into rather than paying in cash… That’d be third line forcing, right?

via TweetDeck

When I start Googling the concept I discover “former lawyer turned happiness guru, Dan Bowling”, @Idealaw, so I’m even more suicidal now.

via TweetDeck

@Idealaw “Resilience training” for depression? “HTFU, you weak, sick people?” FFS, name and shame the cunts who are doing this!

via TweetDeck in reply to Idealaw

@kim_weatherall Cheers. Alas, I’m already booked out for Tue 21/2. February is becoming more annoying by the hour.

via TweetDeck in reply to kim_weatherall

RT @expectproblems: Seriously tempted to nuke my FB profile from orbit. Right now. [Finally, Butterfly, you are understanding…]

via TweetDeck

@Bondles DFAT has been holding background briefings for a goodly while now. IIRC they’re off-record though. I’d have to check my notes.

via TweetDeck in reply to Bondles

Have I missed DFAT’s Sydney briefing on the various IP treaties in the pipeline?

via TweetDeck

Don’t look at the internet, @R_Chirgwin. The Centipede is growing.

via TweetDeck

Backup finished. Autocab summoned. I’ve decided to try the Alexander Hotel in Leura for lunch. arseh.at/slz

via TweetDeck

OK, so the daylight saving thingo is a troll. Thanks, @tjridge. /cc @mwyres

via TweetDeck

Bugger. I knew it. Daylight Saving time is causing a drought. i.imgur.com/iqTO0.jpg HT @evcricket via @norton_tim

via TweetDeck

@franksting As it happens, I’m clarifying my thoughts on the .info block for a piece this arvo. Stand by. /cc @GeordieGuy @duckblog

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Yay. The fsck is finished, the backup begins. And once that’s done, I can depart in search of food and, perhaps, inspiration for writing.

via TweetDeck

@franksting I can’t see APH IT saying anything more about .info than emailed to Syd Walker. arseh.at/skw /cc @GeordieGuy @duckblog

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Waiting for a fsck to finish. Make your own jokes, people, I couldn’t be arsed. Yeah, make your own jokes about that too, if you like.

About to listen to @BernardKeane talk War on the Internet on @3RRRFM. Stream at arseh.at/qfu

Tue plan, pretty much unordered: Invoicing; write for CSO; lunch in some nearby town; shopping; 2 x blog posts; quiet night.

It’s Tuesday, and I’m not ashamed to say it.
