Thank you, @DrMiaow. That’s precisely what I suspected.

RT @DrMiaow: Yes. It trains kids to mine for free, for the love of it, so when they grow up she can can pay them less than $2 a week.

@RealNickHodge I have the strong suspicion I was doing neither.

I seem to remember saying on the radio that Minecraft was sponsored by Gina Rinehart. Is that right?

@R_Chirgwin @michaelneale Yeah but I’m LEAVING the pub ‘cos I’m on the wireless in a little over an hour. I didn’t get ejected.

Having dismantled the crustacean and associated creatures, I have left the pub and will soon be commencing my journey southward. Thrilled?

Oh. It’s a “Christmas Members Night” at this pub. A shame I’m not a member. And a shame it’s not fucking well Christmas yet.

via Janetter for Mac

So, I’ve had this radical idea of having dinner at the very same pub in which I am currently sitting.

via Janetter for Mac

@faldo @MicroWiki @702sydney @domknight Interesting distinction between “legitimate” and “real” there…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MicroWiki

Yeah I’m sure it was all totally accidental.

via Janetter for Mac

@oberonsghost @SnarkyPlatypus @sylmobile Yeah “long day” seems to be a theme for a few people. Not long to go now.

jdub @stilgherrian There is absolutely nothing at all between North Sydney and Ultimo. It is like a post-apocalyptic hellscape plus a bridge.

@SnarkyPlatypus I’m sure Ms Albrechtsen speaks for all of us when she speaks of decency.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Wondering where I should have dinner. Somewhere between here in North Sydney and the ABC in Ultimo. There much be somewhere.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah I just agreed to be on ABC @702sydney etc with @domknight after 2000 AEDT tonight. Bitcoin-Central as a bank? Wow! guardian.co.uk/technology/201…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @ssharwood: @stilgherrian see my third tweet [Christ, do I have to read ALL the tweets?]

via Janetter for Mac

Mind you, as Janet Albrechtson quite rightly said on Friday, decent people don’t need a code of conduct to behave decently.

via Janetter for Mac

Except, @ssharwood, that Code of Ethics is for “journalists”, not random arsehats on the wireless.

I think my response, the only sensible response, is to stay at the pub and keep drinking until everything makes sense again.

Of course I was brought up in that rather quaint culture where lying, in and of itself, was wrong. I am such a fool.

via Janetter for Mac

Amused to see people defending the practice of lying about who you are in order to humiliate people as public entertainment.

Suddenly noticing the physical state concomitant with having been awake since before 0500. I’m sure a second beer will help.

via Janetter for Mac

So @juhasaarinen is alleging that @darrenpauli was sober when he wrote a news story? How does that even work?

via Janetter for Mac

@jdub @paulwallbank @kcarruthers We’ll have to point out some of the more outrageous statements this evening.

@recklessrei I’m not sure whether to call you dreadfully cynical or a realist. That depresses me in itself.

Yes, things are running a bit late. One more 15-min session before lunch. I’m not an assessor for this one so I can come up to speed.

Just to be clear, I’m not actually loitering outside the school. I’ve gone for a coffee instead. Because I’m responsible.

I am early. But loitering outside a girls high school is both inappropriate and inappropriate.
