Right. And now I’m adding the word “troll” and all its related forms to my global filter because media. So fucking sick of it.

For such senior people to be unable to clearly explain what they’re proposing is, as I say, dangerously confused.

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, having watched the video, I read the body language as a reaction to embarrassing inability to explain themselves.

via Janetter for Mac

How can it be about identifying parties to “internet communications” but not include the web? Heard of Facebook?

via Janetter for Mac

How the heck can a URL be content, not metadata, when that’s precisely what identifies the other party?

via Janetter for Mac

AFP’s explanation of “communications data” is deeply unsettling. Dangerously confused. scott-ludlam.greensmps.org.au/content/estima… HT @SenatorLudlam

Finished eating mussels.

Yeah I’m pretty sure that your toilet smelling of pine trees is not actually “natural”. Please consult a urologist.

Overhearing a blinged-up woman of a certain age whine that the remaining few 80-cent bread rolls haven’t been marked down yet.

I’m off to the supermarket then. Make sure you wait for 20 minutes and leave by a different door.

via Janetter for Mac

If you think I’m cranky now, @corduroy, wait until I cross the threshold of the supermarket. In about 15 minutes. I love supermarkets.

via Janetter for Mac

@russellmahoney So just like what happens when, say, a Prime Minister has a conversation with a TV host? ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to russellmahoney

Is there a single sentence in recorded history that began “A Tasmanian Senator” that ever ended well?

via Janetter for Mac

Noticing someone MISSING THE ENTIRE FUCKING POINT but I’ll let that one through to the keeper.

via Janetter for Mac

@paulwallbank Would that be the electric chair you’re talking about there?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

Frustrated cynical tweet about the pointlessness of outdated “democratic” procedures.

via Janetter for Mac

@ssharwood I mean the latter, but upon further consideration you do have multiple purposes. @iain_chalmers @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

Yes, @iain_chalmers @SnarkyPlatypus, and we need another pair of shotguns for @ssharwood it seems.

via Janetter for Mac

Choosing unwisely.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus MOAR SHOTGUNS are too much to carry around. One decent shotgun and plenty of ammunition suffices.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @jendudley: @stilgherrian your problem is what now? [WHERE DO I START? WHERE DO I JUST… START?]

via Janetter for Mac

Shorter Abetz: Moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan moan.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus But I don’t want a paradigm shift. I want a Winnebago and a decent shotgun.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jendudley Well there’s a bonus. ‘Cos reporting service outages when the service’s users already know beats, y’know, doing journalism? Hah!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jendudley

I must be coming down with something. For a few minutes just now I was pondering getting a real job.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @abcmarkscott Why is it important for @AntonyGreenABC to be standing not sitting? His legs improve his analysis or our understanding?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@jeamland @leslienassar All tweets are unique. THEY ARE SPECIAL FUCKING SNOWFLAKES YOU BASTARDS!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeamland

I hope everyone appreciates the glorious train wreck of my concept integration in these tweets. This takes a special skill. Brewing.

via Janetter for Mac

On the other hand, Alan Jones may finally change his ways. “O noes! @stephenfry tweeted about me! I will resign tomorrow!” Yeah, but no.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah, @johnb78, a bunch of random foreign YouTube viewers will have exactly the same Australian political impact as Nyan Cat…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnb78

@avgaunz I think that portraying Ruxcon as me drinking with @bigmac will work against my chances of getting someone to fund a trip.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to avgaunz

THAT HORRIBLE MAN WE DON’T LISTEN TO IS HORRIBLE AND ALL MY FRIENDS TOLD EACH OTHER HE WAS HORRIBLE AND WE ALL AGREED.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: ONE POINT TWENTY-ONE GIGABLEATS [Yeah gigableats is the real measure here.]

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, I suppose “2 million views on Twitter” is much like “Olympic opening ceremony with a TV audience of eleventy billion”.

via Janetter for Mac

@SBSNews No thanks. I’d rather stab forks into my eyeballs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SBSNews

Yeah I know, like how dare anyone question the hand-wavey social media “statistics” that show how wonderful the recreational outrage is

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell @GeordieGuy @JuliusFlywheel Oh give poor @VodafoneAU_Help a break, they’ve got enough on their plate as it is.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@OliviaIllyria ‘Cos 2 million of anything on Twitter in Australia seems unlikely to me. Are there even 2 million Twitter users here?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OliviaIllyria

@OliviaIllyria No, my question is about what you’re counting. 2 million of what events, exactly?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OliviaIllyria

OH: “Thank you. Please collect your tickets and badger.” I think.

via Janetter for Mac

@OliviaIllyria How are you counting as 2 million the “views” for ? “Views” and “readership” are vastly different things.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OliviaIllyria

Starting to accept as fact that I won’t be going to Melbourne this weekend for Ruxcon. It’s. All. Too. Hard. (And. Not. In. A. Good. Way.)

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie I’m not sure what I’m looking at there. A user-edit screen showing the existing password? @IMGSTG @troyhunt

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@ssharwood @Vodafone_AU Well really that’s all a question of form factor, isn’t it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

I approve of the insult “What a jar of mussels”, @firstdogonmoon.

via Janetter for Mac

@ashdonaldson @SnarkyPlatypus Couldn’t park employees deploy one of those spike things on a handle that they use to pick up litter?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ashdonaldson

@derekbradley Thinking about that, I could just get Woolworths to deliver the shopping. Silly me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

There’s a first time for everything.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @ashdonaldson The risk of some sort of brain-destroying alien blancmange lava lamp environmental catastrophe, that’s what.

Mobile: Shortly, a cab to Leura; lunch at Alexandra Hotel; further work there until it’s time to do the shopping.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @ashdonaldson, English tourists should be banned from removing their shirts within 20km of a built-up area.

via Janetter for Mac

People who use “around” as an all-purpose preposition. Lose the hand-wavey vagueness, please.

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis You’re making a lot of assumptions there about my tastes, young man.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

Tue plan, Part B: Finish triage; lunch Alexandra Hotel, Leura; client webby loose ends; more planning; shopping; quiet evening sydsaminning.

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis Maybe you should use the hashtag for these events ‘cos that’s what looked like to me. And everyone.

RT @ssharwood: I will no longer utter the phrase “like a Silicon Valley startup” or respect those who do [I HIGHLY COMMEND THIS STRATEGY.]

Yet another media release about a vendor’s “next-generation” product. Sigh. Sooner or later we’ll have to start moving beyond that.

I did not set fire to the petrol bowsers.

By rights I shouldn’t have RTd @norton_tim but, because he has an animated GIF avatar, beaten him to death in front of his whole family.

An important part of my plan will be to find a mistake in the world somewhere, decide who to blame, and go on and on and on about it.

via Janetter for Mac

Tue plan, Part A: Triage the remainder of this comms backlog and create Part B accordingly; brunch, somewhere; execute Tue plan, Part B.

via Janetter for Mac

I did not set fire to the bus.

via Janetter for Mac

Wait, what? Tuesday? But it’s not even daylight yet! I’m going to report you, you little fucker!
