Oh dear God, why must people RT that arsehole into my timeline?

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. The medication seems to be wearing off.

Feeling a very strong urge to play Sink. Very strong indeed.

@laurenetrim Erm, the “where” question is answered in the photo description. And in the map.

Also, at dusk that slender-billed cuckoo-dove from this morning flic.kr/p/bAbk62 came back for more food, and it brought a friend.

Why is @jg_rat telling @ERN_Malleyscrub about his sexual fantasies?

via TweetDeck

That’s right. I’ve got it now. The National Broadband Network will fail because of canal boats in it. Like Venice. It will sink.

via TweetDeck

Nothing beats a good canal, @SnarkyPlatypus. Unless the fibre is superseded by new technology. Or something. I seem to be confused.

via TweetDeck

No, there is no “south of Sydney” either, @chrisjrn. Sydenham marks the end of the world in that direction.

via TweetDeck

No, @chrisjrn, PROPER canals. Like คลองแสนแสบ. arseh.at/t16 Also, there is no such thing as south Sydney. Sydney has no South.

via TweetDeck

Sydney needs more canals so we can push things into them. [nods]

via TweetDeck

RT @ApostrophePong: I’m not expecting a harpsichord to be played live in Bangkok. [Then push it into the canal! Solved!]

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ll have you know met the founder of Deep Forest. He was French. And tedious. Oh, yeah, that explains…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Well that’s both interviews for the “Patch Monday” podcast recorded and edited. An easy assembly job in the morning before. Yay.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Here we go. Shoosh, or you’ll end up in the podcast.

via TweetDeck

Awaiting the appearance of talent on Skype before recording my interactions with same.

via TweetDeck

@acaderama What the fucking fuck? I was pleased to be 100km from that tedious, clichéd celebration-of-shallow-conformity FaggotFest™.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

There are good reasons for not letting common people access the free drinks in the lounge before their flight.

via TweetDeck

Audio from the Recordkeeping Roundtable panel “Freedom of Information?” with @Ausflatfish @purfler and me now at arseh.at/t14

via TweetDeck

So, time for a light dinner and some preparation for the 2000 AEDT recording. And then an early collapse, I think.

via TweetDeck

So, the bear’s piano performance of “Ride of the Valkyries” is inadequate. IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW!

“There’s no way in hell I’m gonna run around France chasing tail when Lady Liberty herself is in danger.”

THANK GOD FOR MULTI-MODE GAS-DISPENSING ROBOT DOGS!

“It’s nine in the morning. You see no issue with drinking at nine in the morning?” HOW IS THAT EVEN A QUESTION, CLAIRE?

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge Bzzzt! Russell Crowe IS on the list. I shit you not.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

No, Toni Pearen is not on the list. But Gai Waterhouse is. Sort of the same thing.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems So, did you watch the next “Danger 5” episode? It has a talking dog and zeppelins. arseh.at/t13

via TweetDeck

@BernardKeane Oh and of course Michael Fucking Leunig, star of whimsical giveaway calendars in a Fairfax newspaper near you.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@BernardKeane Surely the real national treasures on that list are Cheryl Kernot and John Howard.

via TweetDeck in reply to BernardKeane

@peterjblack And I realise your thingy is only quoting the headline. But the headline does not reflect the facts presented. Quite unusual.

via TweetDeck

@peterjblack Erm, that child porn access statistic is not how you summarised it. Any access attempts to whole domains, even robots.

via TweetDeck in reply to peterjblack

I’m thinking of leasing out one of Clive Palmer’s chins for holiday accommodation.

via TweetDeck

@jeamland Sorry, are you talking about fallopian tubes again?

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

That reminds me. I’m booked for a speaking engagement in Perth on 27 Apr and was reminded “There’ll be children in the audience”. Why?

via TweetDeck

Anyway, “self-centred billionaire cunt” is a vital component of Australian public culture. We would be a lesser nation without them.

via TweetDeck

Oh “Woman’s Day” is the official organ of Australian culture, @pblakez, didn’t you know?

via TweetDeck

People criticizing Clive Palmer being a “living treasure” should consider how devalued the term had already become. arseh.at/t12

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Battery at 49.6V, I think it’ll be fine.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

R_Chirgwin Clive Palmer, national living treasure, says his nomination is a “vote of the people”. Reality is now officially too strange. Get drugs.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 4:58 PM, Mar 4th, 2012 via TweetDeck)

Explaining all the things.

via TweetDeck

@sroc It’s a literary reference.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

Being chivalrous.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… hanging that quilt on the balcony to air turns out to have been a tactical error.

via TweetDeck

@CatrionaPollard Oh. I wasn’t challenging the figure, just looking for the source.

via TweetDeck in reply to CatrionaPollard

So, on the basis of that, what if we accidentally all the men?

via TweetDeck

RT @whatiris b
Because the women know that statistically, they’ll be rid of the men shortly. [Oh yeah. Ta.]

via TweetDeck

How come when women reach their 70s and 80s they become at one with the world, and men become bitter, self-centred arseholes?

via TweetDeck

@CatrionaPollard Did Ms Greer cite a source for that rape-in-army statistic?

via TweetDeck in reply to CatrionaPollard

@jacqueprior_ Either way, it is quite possible you need to up the medication.

via TweetDeck in reply to jacqueprior_

Suddenly remembering the nostalgic tone of stories in Ray Bradbury’s “R is for Rocket”.

via TweetDeck

Spelling and typing fuck you all.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Oh. It’s nit just a bookshelf, but a book CASE! How grand. Wanker.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

OH, woman: ” Yes… yes… yes! Yes! YES! YES OH YES!” Oh. She’s watching the rugby on TV.

via TweetDeck

@ABCNSW @abcriverina How will “liking” a SES Facebook page help the SES, exactly? Surely all it does is hand more mineable data to Facebook.

via TweetDeck in reply to ABCNSW

@expectproblems Mate, you’re going to crash into the bookshelf. Pull up!

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@absalomedia Why would you even do such a thing to people? That’s just cruel.

via TweetDeck in reply to absalomedia

Also, a little onion.

via TweetDeck

Meat lover’s spaghetti has meat. Plenty of meat.

Does Parliament House, Canberra, use RSA SecurID tokens for remote access to the DPS network? Inquiring minds…

via TweetDeck

@kofeyh Goodness me. I might anger someone because of something I said. I quake in my sneakers. /cc @erkpod

via TweetDeck in reply to kofeyh

@grum @lukecaporn Chickens don’t have vaginas. Don’t ask me how I know that.

via TweetDeck in reply to grum

@erkpod Hah! I don’t think International Women’s Day is something people travel to. Or is it?

via TweetDeck in reply to erkpod

Oh I know there’s the FaggotFest Surcharge™, @Melissa_Moyle, but oddly Thursday is booked heavily and other nights nearby not. Go figure.

via TweetDeck

@moldor I’d previously avoided feeding the local fauna. But yes, they do seem eager to be pleaded.

via TweetDeck in reply to moldor

What’s happening in Sydney on this coming Thursday? Hotels are booked out or expensive.

via TweetDeck

Cab phone operator asks “Do you know where you’re off to?” Um, yes. Do they have to ask that a lot?

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Thursday at 2039 is the Full Moon, so that might work. I shall work on The Plans…

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite Apart from your need to kill everyone around you right now, would Thu or Fri be better for drinks?

via TweetDeck

Why would you even go there?

via TweetDeck

@networkjanitor It’s true, lorikeets are even more attention-slutty, but they seem to be in the minority at Wentworth Falls. Go figure.

via TweetDeck in reply to networkjanitor

Right, with the recording session set for 2000 AEDT, my next task is a decision: Which Upper Blue Mountains pub has the best Sunday roast?

via TweetDeck

Agreed, @R_Chirgwin, definitely a juvenile. Still some down on chest, and it wasn’t all that big compared with wattlebirds I have known.

via TweetDeck

Aha! Thanks to @Glebe2037 and @RealNickHodge I can confirm it’s a Little Wattlebird. A kind of honeyeater. flic.kr/p/bnhPxb

via TweetDeck

These rosellas are such attention-sluts!

via TweetDeck

Now here’s a conundrum. Random honeyeater, or wattlebird? Can you positively identify this bird? flic.kr/p/bnhPxb

via TweetDeck

That rosella is still sitting on the wicker chair just outside the door. He or she looks rather at ease.

via TweetDeck

New photo, as promised moments ago: “Rosella in da House” flic.kr/p/bnhNLm

via TweetDeck

Well, I don’t have to wait. A rosella has just come into the dining room. Photos to come soon enough.

via TweetDeck

Thanks, @drueyjay @bigmac. I’m tempted to stay at Wattle Cottage ‘cos one pair of rosellas is getting very bold, almost coming in the door!

via TweetDeck

@emmackat I still haven’t got my head around which parrot species prefer which ecosystem. But here it’s Rosellas’R’Us.

via TweetDeck in reply to emmackat

Australian Institute of Criminology website down. aic.gov.au A shame. Minister for Home Affairs media release just linked to it.

via TweetDeck

Just in case you didn’t click back thru the stream, this is a much better rosella photo. flic.kr/p/bAbkDR

via TweetDeck

@no_filter_Yamba Thanks, though I think the trick to looking like a competent photographer is just to not publish the crap photos.

via TweetDeck in reply to no_filter_Yamba

Oh. Starting with that photo means you scroll backwards thru time to get to the cuckoo-dove. But I’m sure you’ll cope.

via TweetDeck

So here’s the first “Awwww, so cute!” photo of a rosella. Then click back thru the set. flic.kr/p/bngvQG

via TweetDeck

Oh ta, @no_filter_Yamba @PardusXY @justjjoke. Yes, they have me well trained.

via TweetDeck

The cuckoo-dove, @smperris? Here’s one I prepared earlier. flic.kr/p/aRAcRv

via TweetDeck

Oh hello. And now the rosellas have arrived. Three of them. No, four. Photos coming shortly.

via TweetDeck

Gawd, a cuckoo-dove just walked up to the glass door on Wattle Cottage and indicated that some food would be nice. And I fed it.

via TweetDeck

I am really quite astounded at who gets to breed in this society. Quite astounded.

via TweetDeck

Look, I know it’s wrong, but “Tankard Reist” really does sound to me like a yeast infection common amongst brewery workers.

via TweetDeck

@SulphurCocky Google for “telco pricing site:zdnet.com.au” and variants, it might provide a few leads. /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky There’d be plenty on telco/ISP pricing over the years but don’t recall any specifics. /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky That explanation seems far from misleading. Whether an advert was or wasn’t is another story. /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky But unless it’s misleading, it’s just a provider setting a pricing model in a free market, no? /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky I don’t see a problem with “Do it this way to use our CDN deals so you don’t get charged.” /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky So to access “free” data items you must do so using the interface Amaysim provides? /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

@SulphurCocky I have no idea what you mean by “Twitter Excludes”. Can you link to a reference or something? /cc @brettatitnews @engochick

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

Sun plan, unordered: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; map out the week ahead; 2 x blog posts; consumer a Sunday roast somewhere.

via TweetDeck

Sunday, I suppose.
