@kcarruthers That’s a terrible way to talk about your husband.

Of course “social media reporter” is a thing, just like “heard at the pub reporter”.

@johncarneyau Ah. Turns out she didn’t know that 4WD is not 4-wheel steering.

OH: “I was trying to park and I kept hitting the kerb and I don’t understand because it was a four wheel drive.”

@dobes I’ve seen one of the lyrebirds once (we have at least two) and this is all I saw. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes Also, it was lyrebird time in morning chorus, cockatoos don’t live over there, nor squawk in that exact weather, nor do single bars.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@dobes Lyrebird, or someone gathered six different species of bird in the one spot and trained them to make their noise in turn.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Amused to be hearing the real yellow-tailed black cockatoos doing their thing, as opposed to the lyrebird’s fakery earlier.

via Janetter for Mac

Just finished discussing what I’ll be talking about in my guest lecture to media students at UTS next month. Should be fun.

So when the SMH goes to a “compact edition”, does than mean I can get away with a 13” MacBook Pro instead of the 15”?

@ackchung My thoughts on such things are non-existent. My gaming and gadget journo colleagues do that stuff. I do privacy and infosec.

@ackchung Or really, the last thing the internet needs is another person mouthing off about which platform is “best”.

via Janetter for Mac

@ackchung Nah, comparisons of the consoles for actual gaming isn’t my thing. Specs, fanboy-fights, yawn yawn yawn. :)

via Janetter for Mac

There’s definitely two lyrebirds at @bunjaree, @R_Chirgwin, ‘cos they’ve got very different routines.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey @R_Chirgwin, there’s a lyrebird doing his thing SE of @bunjaree Wattle Cottage. He’s nailed the yellow-tailed black cockatoo now.

@chris_stevenson No, that counts as *more than slightly* “burn it down before the contagion spreads”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chris_stevenson

@chrisjrn Yes. Yes it is. Also, “Squeak of Phear” would be a great band name.

The best bit of that video, @myrcurial, is at 1’32” when the presenter says “terrorism suspects” with that extra little squeak of phear.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai peur pour vous. Vous êtes en contrôle de votre vie? Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That’s right, @tassie_codriver, in 2013 it’s Chinese hackers versus Taiwanese coffee ambassadors. This will not end well.

via Janetter for Mac

So wait. They have hackers in China now? Well I never!
