Hey, @oberonsghost, at least when I suffer an, um… “un incident impliquant des traces de dérapage”, I don’t run to @SBSNews!

RT @SBSNews: Cardinal Pell angered by newspaper “smear” bit.ly/10BIgOn [Doesn’t he use toilet paper like everyone else?]

@reddishraven @antloewenstein @_chesty Golf is not an actual thing. You have been misled.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to reddishraven

@ProfMESmith @ECPR Oh @captain_europe is obviously the way to go, provided we’re talking Eurovision and wind machines too! @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ProfMESmith

I should probably be prevented.

via Janetter for Mac

@ProfMESmith @ECPR “Europe as a security actor”? So, like Arnold Schwarzenegger? Or more Jean Claude van Damme? How cools is that!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ProfMESmith

Well, @dead_aeroplane, maybe coming under attack by Gary Numan is something we REALLY need to be afraid of.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jonoabroad: why are you tweeting police media releases? [Because they, combined with @SourceBottle, define reality.]

via Janetter for Mac

MattCowgill People are *really* committed to the idea that the ABS/ILO definition of unemployment is some kind of nefarious neoliberal plot

RT @juhasaarinen: If he’d driven five kids, would the analysis have returned a higher or lower reading? [Further experiments are needed!]

I wonder whether Justice Bennett uses an iPhone or iPad, or a Samsung Galaxy S or Note?

I see that @nphair will be talking about the RBA (not-)hack on 2GB at 1835 AEDT. Stream at 2gb.com

I think I’ll revive my call to use the prefix “electro-” instead. It’s just a sensible. BEWARE NATION-STATE ELECTROHACKERS AND ELECTROWAR!

via Janetter for Mac

I still have trouble believing that our national broadsheet actually used the word “cyberhackers” in a headline today. WHAT OTHER KIND?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jonoabroad: I think you mean butter. [Oh yes, sorry. That should be “Buttering the facts.”]

via Janetter for Mac

Laughing at the gullible.

via Janetter for Mac

Clarifying the facts.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Alas there’s nothing in the media release to indicate one way or the other. No incentive for police to find out, either.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

“These particular tabs are identifiable due to an imprint on the paper of recording artist Psy doing the ‘gangnam style’ dance.”

via Janetter for Mac

There’s “bad acid” circulating the NSW North Coast, according to @nswpolice police.nsw.gov.au/news/media_rel…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh, I’d missed the “tablet simple enough for a woman to use”. It’s certainly a bit special. arstechnica.com/gadgets/2013/0…

RT @charispalmer: They might as well say “I watch what my kids do and I’ve learnt I should cry more to get what I want” [Business Council?]

via Janetter for Mac

Kudos to @MissyByte for just describing SXSW as “Burning Man, but with clothes and wi-fi”. HT @Beaker

via Janetter for Mac

Agreed, @charispalmer. In which other aspect of their work would execs be happy to say they have no direct experience of current reality?

via Janetter for Mac

charispalmer The words “I watch what my kids do” or “I observe my children” should really be dropped from the vocab of execs talking about tech *please*

Anyway, @newscomauHQ, there are ways of dealing with this dishonesty. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @firstdogonmoon: @stilgherrian @newscomauHQ was it the one about the fairy wren? [Sadly it was not.]

via Janetter for Mac

SnarkyPlatypus @stilgherrian I dunno, she may have been serious about that lame joke. You never know when a random plane will fall out of sky and kill you.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 1:08 PM, Mar 11th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@russellmahoney Gosh, what does @QantasAirways immediately previous tweet say? *Thwap with a phone book*

via Janetter for Mac in reply to russellmahoney

Oh FFS ROFL! Look to see which of my tweets just now was RTd by @newscomauHQ, quoting me completely out of context. Fraudsters.

via Janetter for Mac

And now, I hope you’ll join me in my heartfelt tribute to fine Australian journalism by smashing our faces into broken bottles.

via Janetter for Mac

I would like to thank @newscomauHQ for their generous support of Qantas’ tribute to a great Australian businessman. Well done everybody.

via Janetter for Mac

So, all in all, we start with a lame joke, fail to get the photo right, fail grammar, and fail to provide useful information on watching.

via Janetter for Mac

4. [My personal fave] It begins: “Don’t panic if you see a Qantas plane flying over Sydney’s CBD today. It’s not a terrorist attack.” Oh OK.

via Janetter for Mac

3. “The best place to view the plane is from Angel Place near Wynyard,” a narrow slot running the wrong direction. Maybe George Street?

via Janetter for Mac

2. “He earned the nickname ‘Mr Bow Tie’ for his sartorial elegance and preference in neckwear ran Qantas between 1983 and 2001.” Thud.

via Janetter for Mac

1. @newscomauHQ has used a photograph of the wrong type of aircraft, even though that information is in the story. HT @en_gy

via Janetter for Mac

So, @newscomauHQ tells us about the Qantas flyover of George St, Sydney at 1300 AEDT to commemorate James Strong… news.com.au/travel/news/qa…

RT @maxcelcat: It’s definitely a bird of some sort. A bird with red marks on its head. A Red Head Mark Bird… [I LOVE SCIENTZ! @bunjaree]

via Janetter for Mac

@carolprobets @R_Chirgwin @bunjaree It’s hard to out my finger on it, but it does seem a somewhat different pattern of bird activity atm.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to carolprobets

Yes, @myrtleviolet, it seems red-browed firetail is another name for the same critter.

via Janetter for Mac

@darrenpauli Heh. I was going to say, sure, but @R_Chirgwin is generally slow and wrong. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to darrenpauli

@R_Chirgwin @bunjaree Why are you focused on that end of the bird?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

And that’s without bothering to move my arse outside and see what some of the other movement in the undergrowth is all about.

via Janetter for Mac

Also see today: Ubiquitous crimson rosellas, pied currawong, superb fairy wren, New Holland honeyeater, slender-billed cuckoo-dove.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @D_Keating: “Slogans: The Future”. You’re welcome! [“Slogans: Fewer words for a bigger future”?]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BundyB: We need a slogan to promote slogans. Slogans have been ignored for too long. [I agree. Obviously.]

via Janetter for Mac

Can anyone identify this tiny bird, a pair of which were just seen at @bunjaree? twitpic.com/cacjlq

via Janetter for Mac

And slogans. More simplistic slogans. With more slogans we could save IT, and save the planet.

via Janetter for Mac

I think what the IT industry lacks is ego-driven blind tribalism informing our platform choices. If only we had some of that.

via Janetter for Mac

@neil312217 Well I’m assuming @lancehodges’ experience was in Auckland. I haven’t scrolled back to see where the others were.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to neil312217

The gentle rain begins.

via Janetter for Mac

The most interesting thing about the @BusinessSpec @technologyspec etc redesign is the @australian listed in the header with “Login” etc.

via Janetter for Mac

I know that currawongs’ general mode of operation is skulking, but this one is skulking more than usual.

via Janetter for Mac

What’s “China”?

via Janetter for Mac

I can smell the rain approaching the forest.

via Janetter for Mac

@ssharwood 1000 is hardly an “early bird”. Most other species have long since been and gone. Though this currawong is actually skulking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

Watching a pied currawong eat bird seed intended for parrots. Twat.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BernardKeane: every time I turn on Skype, a picture of @stilgherrian appears to tell me “pre-arranged calls only”. Bastard. [CyberChina]

“Hi, here’s an EFTPOS machine displaying an obviously-wrong ID. I’ll just insert my card and key my PIN anyway.” Herp-derp indeed!

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, I’ll ask in a non-reply. Any other pics of HERP-DERP EFTPOS out there? Where? Insider fun or defacement hack?

via Janetter for Mac

@lancehodges @juhasaarinen That’s the second photo of a HERP-DERP EFTPOS seen in a few days. Insider fun or defacement hack?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@CosmicRami Well “online” isn’t a context. Bullying happens through a social connection: school, workplace, church, sports team etc…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CosmicRami

“Cyber-attackers penetrate [Australian] Reserve Bank networks”, writes @cjoye with less screechy. afr.com/p/national/cyb…

via Janetter for Mac

@CosmicRami Thanks. I don’t think there needs to be any prefix. Bullying is bullying. Fraud is fraud. The “cyber” is not the crime.

Did I really write “last weak” just then? Well that’s week.

via Janetter for Mac

@pdyxs That and “exposure is everything for some people” tells me… something else about those some people. Attention sluttery FTL.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to pdyxs

@pdyxs People can make their own choices, but “You’ll get exposure!” when TED demands so much and is awash in cash reeks of a scam.
