RT @jonathonio: POLE-VAULTING IS COMMUNISM

via Janetter for Mac

So, @bernietb, to be clear: “Battleship” is not the best movie ever made? Well thanks for your insight.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SummersAnne: @stilgherrian No typos. You can’t be that drunk [No, it’s just that I’M A PROFESSIONAL.]

via Janetter for Mac

The cab company has apologised for leaving me in danger of sobering up. Though a cab has yet to arrive.

via Plume for Android

Yes yes the fucking high jump too get over yourselves.

via Plume for Android

Note to Media: Today, during the pole vault, is the ONLY time when it’s legitimate to talk about “raising the bar”.

via Plume for Android

RT @bernietb “RIMPAC” - . At least…I don’t think it is. Is does refer to the navy, thoughip

via Plume for Android

OH, chap watching the Sport: “Fuck she’s huge! How fit are these people? Look at the muscles on her. Look at her arms!”

via Plume for Android

I have summoned an autocab.

via Plume for Android

RT @JohnBirmingham Why do I get the feeling Sophie & Vernessa are going to rub those Pomeranians all over their pubic mounds?

via Plume for Android

Thank you, Android, for fucking up my use of the word “commend”.

via Plume for Android

Is the word you’re looking for “euphonium”?

via Plume for Android

I must say, now that the pub switched to that sporting event, there’s some serious rootability on offer.

via Plume for Android

@mpesce Then you’re in for a special treat

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Everything. Is. A. File. Everything.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

OH: “So who’s that Aussie gummybear who can’t fuckin’ jump a fuckin’ highjump any more?”

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce So, you’ve just discovered unix?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT @bigyahu: @stilgherrian shouldn’t @abc730 put a super on the footage? “archival footage of an arseclown”? [Yes, that’s basic disclosure.]

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Have you got Foxtel here? They might have beach volleyball.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Little_steps00: @stilgherrian you must be shitty a lot. [Yes. Yes I am.]

via Janetter for Mac

@bigyahu The bigger arseclown is that news outlet. That vision of Conroy and fibre was shot last year.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigyahu

I do get a bit shitty when SHOCK HORROR HEADLINE takes precedence over generating understanding of a complex issue. Hello, @abc730.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look! Uhlmann reckons scrutiny of the NBN is blurred by politics. WHO FUCKING KNEW?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look, @abc730! Spinning numbers and “billions” without giving the percentage increases? How very disingenuous!

via Janetter for Mac

And, @abc730, it’s a “cost blowout”? Within 5% is within accounting standards margin for “meets budget”, isn’t it? FFS stop the tabloidism!

via Janetter for Mac

So @abc730 refers to the NBN as “the fast lane on the information superhighway”. Welcome to 1997. Give me strength.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @DrMobs: I currently have 0.264 square metres of human cells growing in various flasks and plates. I could build a person! [Watch her!]

via Janetter for Mac

Some of the people in this production of “South Pacific” appear to be homosexual.

via Janetter for Mac

Lisa McCune is an actor, it says.

via Janetter for Mac

Watching @abnews be patronising to a child.

via Janetter for Mac

The barman has just admitted to losing my food order, so he’s given me a free beer while I wait.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @barryofarrell, when you’re on TV in a hardhat with other hardhats behind, it looks more like bad pantomime than authoritative.

via Janetter for Mac

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, Gentle Tweeters, we are objecting to a new journalist writing about their experiences. Welcome to the Hypocrizone.

via Janetter for Mac

@pollenizer Example: “discover commodities”. I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to discover a commodity. I honestly have NFI what it means.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pollenizer

@pollenizer I can’t really judge from single-tweet descriptions. There’s a bit too much startup jargon that I don’t understand.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pollenizer

OH: “Sure, but I’ll be single by this time tomorrow.”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ben_hr: @barrysaunders @stilgherrian I had some chocolate earlier [Rock fuckin’ on!]

via Janetter for Mac

Has @pollenizer just turned into that Twitter account that tweets random fake TED talks titles?

via Janetter for Mac

Can I have whatever drugs you’re on tonight?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @pollenizer: ‘Discover commodities with your photo driven news ’ Good Idea?? [I don’t know. What does it even mean?]

via Janetter for Mac

I also see that someone has discovered that interns are not experienced journalists. Well spotted.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “[X] isn’t gay, but he drinks at gay bars because he knows he can take his shirt off and act like a dickhead and not be thrown out.”

via Janetter for Mac

@Snipergirl You’re at the extreme of the bell curve, yes. Maybe I should just give you a gun too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Snipergirl

RT @R_Chirgwin: @stilgherrian For completeness, RICH, inconsistent, self-centred cunts. [True. Ivy league FTW.]

via Janetter for Mac

Also, this week is the first you’ve noticed that Facebook is run by a pack of inconsistent, self-centred cunts? Well done!

via Janetter for Mac

THERE IS SOMETHING ON THE INTERNET I DON’T LIKE MAKE THEM DELETE IT.

via Janetter for Mac

lewellyn @stilgherrian @glengyron I still say twibbons is one of the stupidest portmanteaus of the past decade. Almost as stupid as the thing itself.

via Blaq for PlayBook™ (retweeted on 6:04 PM, Aug 8th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

Signing a petition to send to Facebook, well that’s certainly putting your life at risk for democracy. D-Day veterans, take note!

via Janetter for Mac

Oh, if only GetUp! could become involved… Surely this has reached the ratings-winner status they need before “action”?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: @stilgherrian Are we going to need more twibbons? [Yes, we most certainly need more twibbons.]

via Janetter for Mac

And now we’ll see all the dipshits imagine that this means I support this worldview. Sweet Fucking Jesus how STUPID are you?

via Janetter for Mac

After all, it’s much easier to block your view of some nasty, toxic aspect of society than get off your arse and do something to change it.

via Janetter for Mac

Don your Peril-Sensitive Sunglasses now and JUST MAKE IT STOP.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yes! We can’t have free speech if people might say things we don’t like!

via Janetter for Mac

@OliviaIllyria Yes, how DARE the newspaper be objective call the page by the name for such a thing in Facebook’s taxonomy. HOW DARE THEY!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OliviaIllyria

The sheer fucking arrogance of people who reckon their worldview is one that overrides, just this once honestly, someone else’s rights. Bah!

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, it’s pretty fuckin’ challenging, isn’t it! Some people have worldviews you find completely outrageous. So you became their judge? Hah!

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “What are you doing in MY room? I’m going to take a shit in your bed!”

via Janetter for Mac

RT @DarrynKing: Need a confidence boost? Here are 47 million images of people sticking their thumbs up: bit.ly/O3XQsO

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bleeters: HAHAHA IDIOT MP ON SAYS @Telstra 3G GUARANTEES 12MB UP AND DOWN [Please name names. That’s sheer idiocy.]

via Janetter for Mac

Who else is going to queue up to denounce free speech? That’s what I want to know…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @smperris: I dislike how Australian sporting teams sell off their name to the highest bidder. [THEY ARE WHORES! FILTHY OVERPAID WHORES!]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NewtonMark: “ACMA investigates Facebook hate page.” Oh good, that’ll fix it. sbs.com.au/news/article/1…

via Janetter for Mac

Slowly plodding through the comms backlog. Expecting email from me? Yeah, we’re getting there.

Forthcoming webinar by Michael Angley, former USAF Special Agent, on the Occupy movement. www2.gotomeeting.com/register/29717…

via Janetter for Mac

@GeordieGuy Thank you for your en passant compliment. It’s true, I’ve been writing less for @crikey_news lately.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

Just let this roll over your tongue: “President Mitt”. washingtonpost.com/politics/romne… HT @Journotopia via @GreenJ

RT @wolfcat: @mpesce 6.5” is the biggest I have felt.

via Janetter for Mac

What a fascinating meeting! If this comes together it’ll also be a fascinating project. Anyway, time for the pub to finish today’s work.

via Plume for Android

Sorry, Senator Conroy, but I’ve dumped you for this instagr.am/p/ODfKu1CFln/

Mobile: Walk the dirt track then Railway Pde to Wentworth Falls; 1600 meeting with anthropologist; remainder TBA.

The NBNCo 2012-2015 Corporate Plan is online at nbnco.com.au/about-us/corpo…

via Janetter for Mac

I will say, though, the slides in the presentation are lagging behind the audio an outrageously inconvenient amount. Useless.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: @stilgherrian I thought was a hand just about to be made into a

via Janetter for Mac

Is it just me, or does the logo at the bottom of those slides look like a French Tickler?

via Janetter for Mac

@nanopunk Listen here, Young Lady, I’LL HAVE YOU KNOW THAT I HAVE SELF CONTROL!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

I shan’t be tweeting the presentation, since there’s plenty of others tweeting the facts under that hashtag. Enjoy.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @Matt_Phipps: Always code as if the person who ends up maintaining your code is a violent psychopath who knows where you live.

via Janetter for Mac

@NBNCo Well I have registered as “Stilgherrian the Benevolent”, which should suit your purposes. It may even be accurate.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NBNCo

RT @snerdish: You’re not suggesting the senator had someone murdered by sekret ASIS ninjas just to discommodate Turnbull? Of course you are!

via Janetter for Mac

Y’see, @NBNCo, surely to deliver the service (the webcast), you don’t need ANY personal information about me whatsoever! This is all a scam!

via Janetter for Mac

So, @NBNCo, could you tell me what those contractual obligations are, so I might give INFORMED consent to this? Or must I agree blind?

via Janetter for Mac

“We may use the personal information you provide us for the purpose of fulfilling our contractual obligations with the Company,” @NBNCo?

via Janetter for Mac

I also notice that to view the @NBNCo presentation I must agree to the privacy policy of the Markets Division of Thomson Reuters. Ahem.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear @NBNCo, you have surname as a required field to register for your webcast? Do I need to write a blog post about you as well?

via Janetter for Mac

NBNCo Corporate Plan presentation is streamed at media-server.com/m/p/984jes92 at 1400 AEST. Ping @phildobbie

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan: 1400 watch NBNCo launch begin; 1500 explain my life to an anthropologist; remainder TBA, but it’ll involve a pub at some point.

via Janetter for Mac

Perhaps if you’re near a political journalist you could point them to my immediately preceding tweet. Not that I’m cynical or anything.

via Janetter for Mac

Could someone ask Sen Conroy whether NBNCo launch was scheduled now knowing @TurnbullMalcolm would be tied up at Robert Hughes’ funeral?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m more interested in understanding the actual NBNCo Corporate Plan than documenting the lame paty-political soundbite battle.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh well I’m not too fussed. I’d be reading the thing before writing, and press conference soundbites contribute little to understanding.

via Janetter for Mac

@j_hutch @mwyres @semiboganman I got no email from NBNCo that I can see. I’m not prima donna about it, just surprised no-one told me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to j_hutch

@mwyres @semiboganman Email from Conroy’s office timestamped 1029. So 4.5 hours is relatively long notice from a Minister, still arrogant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mwyres

I see Senator Conroy is launching the NBNCo Corporate Plan in North Sydney at 1400. FFS why do we never get reasonable notice of this stuff?

via Janetter for Mac

I now observe that it is Wednesday, and I am connecting with the world at this time. I hope that’s OK with everyone.
