@Asher_Wolf Not quite sure what you’re asking, but that sounds like a choice needs to be made. Though I’m tired and not analytical now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@SnarkyPlatypus That’s not quite what ASIO said. Mostly. But I’m doing my thing in the morning.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@lionel_bischoff @notsmartblog A shame, but the video is incidental. Go for the MP3 file.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lionel_bischoff

You know, is kinda one of the most important political issues this decade. But hey, go on about gadgets you want to buy, OK?

via Janetter for Mac

Less brilliant, “Patch Monday”podcast’s “The politics of data retention” from July. zdnet.com/the-politics-o…

via Janetter for Mac

If you want to understand , listen to today’s very fine @RNBBing abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll repeat this. @notsmartblog’s “You Are Not So Smart” podcast is worth your while, Possums. youarenotsosmart.com

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus No idea. It was a skink of some sort, I think, and a foot long and pwning the kitchen bench.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Congrats to @notsmartblog for knowing how to do cold open on a podcast.

via Janetter for Mac

Meanwhile I shan’t worry you with this morning’s encounter with the lizard. Scary though it was.

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @sylmobile Excellent, if I get time tomorrow morning I’ll get some photos of that waratah.

Having alighted at Wentworth Falls, I’m on my own instagr.am/p/RCUYe4iFpP/

@leslienassar Look this is the Blue Mountains. You just don’t understand.

via Plume for Android in reply to leslienassar

The skateboaders over there have caused a random explosion. I love this town.

via Plume for Android

Thank you, young man. I asked for it dirty. You delivered it dirty.

via Janetter for Mac

Very dry. Very dirty. A martini, Sir! instagr.am/p/RCPabziFmp/

So the next train is at 1826 so one more drink is called for.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce I’m kinda just hoping you know the difference between AEST and AEDT, being as you are an Expert.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Oh yeah. This photo. “Just friends.” flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

@michaelmeloni Surely you can work out all of these things for yourself.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

RT @juhasaarinen: What’s the best anti-Halloween self defence weapon? Mace? Claymores? [This en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wincheste… but I’m traditionalist.]

via Janetter for Mac

Noticing that the only other person here since I arrived, and pacing me, looks like she’d give the late Queen Mother a run for her money.

via Janetter for Mac

@dmflower @SnarkyPlatypus I’m sure we can work something out. I’ve been reading the NSW Surveillance Devices Act closely of late.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dmflower

@dmflower All OH are being kept. Possibly they’ll turn into a script some day. Filming these folks is illegal, alas. Ping @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dmflower

RT @sylmobile: Isn’t a web browser some kind of reading thing? [I thought so too. Or PDF readers. But apparently not.]

via Janetter for Mac

@hailants The Long Island Iced Teas are quite respectable here, and I agree about their utility. But I have decided to explore today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to hailants

Actually, I haven’t read anything of book length in quite some time. Trying to remember what that might have been.

via Janetter for Mac

Suddenly realising that I don’t have an ebook reader of any kind, hardware or software, and wondering whether that even matters.

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost I am not encouraging these people to spend any longer at the bar than they are. Juice them up, then evict them, I say!

RT @retrogrrl: Where are you? 1977? [Apparently so.]

via Janetter for Mac

They’ve decided that cocktails would take too long, maybe another time, so they’re lashing out on Tia Maria on ice.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “What’s Cointreau?”

via Janetter for Mac

Sooner or later this group of ladies will tire of reading the cocktail menu out loud to each other and actually order something.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “Ernest Hemingway!” “Really? All I saw was ‘sparkling’…!” This could take some time.

via Janetter for Mac

Ah. It would appear that Champagne Charlie’s extensive and traditional cocktail menu is a new and foreign land for these ladies.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Woman At The Next Table, your friend has hinted “birthday” and “cocktail” twice now. Stop offering to buy her Devonshire Tea FFS.

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, he seems to be dealing with an extreme peppermint tea situation. Poor sod.

via Janetter for Mac

Awww… That lad is looking at my drink with envy as he orders… a peppermint tea and a macchiato for his guest and himself.

via Janetter for Mac

Death in the Afternoon, it’s called instagr.am/p/RCCi1wiFtf/

via Instagram

So what happens now is that I’ll buy some unhealthy things to eat later, and then I’ll go for cocktails. By myself. Fuck the lot of you.

“The Secret”, says @notsmartblog, “This is just my opinion, and the opinion of all of science, is bullshit.” Indeed. youarenotsosmart.com/2012/05/30/yan…

Enjoying catching up with the first five eps of the “You Are Not So Smart” podcast from @notsmartblog. youarenotsosmart.com

via Janetter for Mac

@matthewlandauer Sorry about that. I suggest you seek urgent medical attention.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to matthewlandauer

@caseyjohnellis Ah, that may not be so useful, as one of the two examples I have only in audio. But there’s an idea for the future.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

@caseyjohnellis Inneresting. I’ll drop you some details a bit later. I’m still forming my ideas about what I’m doing this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

The very fact that it’s all per-platform apps shows the immaturity of the mobile internet. So much for interoperability.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @en_gy: Any suggestions for a rental property search app? [“The internet”?]

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis Hence wanting to explore the reasons why, psychologically, people get angry when asked questions. @SenatorLudlam

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis And there, I think, is something I might explore over the next 24 hours. @SenatorLudlam

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

MT @joshgnosis: ASIO’s David Irvine gets very defensive [on @RNBBing] abc.net.au/radionational/… [Also others at scott-ludlam.greensmps.org.au/content/estima… I reckon.]

via Janetter for Mac

Do I know, or am I followed by, or do you know, a psychologist who knows how to read people’s verbal body language, as it were?

via Janetter for Mac

Nothing new there.

via Janetter for Mac

So certain Liberals are accusing Labor’s foreign minister of “prancing”? Memories are clearly very short…

via Janetter for Mac

@marcfennell It’s Sunday. Everyone else at the gym will be munted too. Wait. What?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

RT @sylmobile: “@stilgherrian looks nice and moist.” [I’m glad you noticed. And I am.]

Sun plan, unordered: Reading catch-up; partake of a Sunday roast somewhere; plan the fortnight ahead, kinda, inasmuch as it’s possible.

via Janetter for Mac

Given that @RNBBing includes an interview with ASIO Director-General David Irvine, it’s a must-listen. abc.net.au/radionational/…
