OH: “Oh, what’s it called again when you set up your corporate structure this way?” “Fraud?” “No, fraud’s the wrong word…”

@GreenJ Television is magic how dare you.

via Plume for Android in reply to GreenJ

Sorted. And errands done.

via Plume for Android

Intervening. In a loud, clear voice and with unmistakable intent.

via Plume for Android

The paper was yellow. So, you know, important.

via Plume for Android

A media company I’ve only ever dealt with by email has sent me a paper letter to say that from now on they’ll only communicate by email.

via Plume for Android

Ah bugger it, I’ll leave that stand. It’ll bring some momentary joy into your pathetic, pointless lives.

via Plume for Android

So perhaps I do the latter first, to ensure underwear supplies, then we meet somewhere?

via Plume for Android

I see the monorail is still running. I thought that had been dealt with?

via Plume for Android

Lunch was lovely, though.

via Plume for Android

So, is that everything covered?

via Plume for Android

Oh, and the Special Fucktard Award to those who think describing someone’s argument is agreeing with it. You stupid cunts!

via Plume for Android

The other personal fave is patronising little lectures that assume I first started thinking about anything at all on about Monday. Them too.

via Plume for Android

More assertions, though. More statements of feelpinion tweeted at me as if they’re documented facts. Yes, I crave more of that shit.

via Plume for Android

I’ll look at tweets in detail once my errands are done, but I won’t be polite to anyone who’s verballed me with what they imagine I wrote.

via Plume for Android

“You have 4 new voice messages” yeah whatever.

via Plume for Android

Lunch ends. Thank you, Dimension Data and Flying Fish.

BernardKeane @coljac @stilgherrian curious - do people ever stop thinking about Pete Smith? I don’t.

“Even handed”?” Objective”? Shit, sorry, I’ll try not to do that again.

via Plume for Android

Thanks, @Telstra, for acknowledging problems with data usage updates, and the extra GB to cover my unplanned overrun. Efficiently handled.

via Plume for Android

@drymogwai I’ll dig out the exact quote later. Yes, bandwidth asymmetry is worthy of discussion. A long term issue. @TurnbullMalcolm 

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@drymogwai Yesterday @TurnbullMalcolm straw-manned it as a demand for symmetric bandwidth, whereas I’ve just wanted it as discussion point.

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@drymogwai NBN Co’s products have specific upload speeds because they’re the negotiated wholesale products, but they’re not govt policy.

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@drymogwai Well, if the policy doesn’t specify minimum upload speed targets, then it doesn’t have any. Neither does Labor’s…

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@drymogwai Your assertion “no-one is talking about upstream” isn’t true. I for one return to it regularly. Answer is unchanged, not news.

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@drymogwai @TurnbullMalcolm He’s been asked various times. I’m assuming if you haven’t seen it then stories picked other aspects.

via Plume for Android in reply to drymogwai

@BrianMitchell_ @crikey_news I hope you took the time to comment and point out the specific lacks in a straight they-said plus impressions.

via Plume for Android in reply to BrianMitchell_

I’ve requested a call back from @Telstra, so we’ll see how this is handled.

via Plume for Android

So, @Telstra, at 0610 your call centre says I’ve used 59% of data cap, now your SMS says it’s 114%. Can’t trust your tools to manage usage.

via Plume for Android

Oh, lovely, I have time to walk down to Pyrmont for this lunch briefing thing. Starting to do that now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Next Iron Man movie looks like an expensive turkey. [You can see them at Establishment on Friday nights! Lotsa bling!]

via Janetter for Mac

@drymogwai I didn’t comment specifically on that. Just wasn’t time or room. But I note that upload speeds are being glossed over generally.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to drymogwai

Right. My 1600-word screed has been sent to @crikey_news. It’s no doubt riddled with typos, leaf litter and dead mice.

via Janetter for Mac

Fark, my @crikey_news yarn is turning into a big of a shaggy dog story.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Il est effectivement possible d’avoir trop de poulets.

Hang on. What do you mean you have to PAY your phone bills?

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis rempli avec les opinions de beaucoup, beaucoup de poulets gloussent. Ils me chatouiller. Et vous.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Wed plan: Write for @ABCthedrum (first in ages, done); sort washing; write for @crikey_news; 1230 briefing Pyrmont; errands; remainder TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

Thing written and sent to @ABCthedrum. It’ll be fascinated to see the reaction. I may need to get a bottle of vodka.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, time to stop thinking and chatting about what I’ll be writing, and actually write it. Baxoon.

via Janetter for Mac

@bradsprigg … though what it does do is present the range of possibilities that allows other people to be screechy on Coalition’s behalf.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bradsprigg

@bradsprigg I want to re-read the bits about overall NBN project cost’s sensitivity to variables, but overall it’s not too screechy…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bradsprigg

@nazzer I think the Coalition’s NBN announcement timing would be more “While the PM and team is in China”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nazzer

I’m guessing that will get people annoyed with me in both left- and right-brained ways. That’d be “balance”, or something.

via Janetter for Mac

Well today I will explain that NBN feelpinion for @ABCthedrum and then dig into the Coalition’s background docs for @crikey_news.

via Janetter for Mac

So at @crikey_news yesterday I wrote this about @TurnbullMalcolm’s NBN policy launch, and it upset some people crikey.com.au/2013/04/09/bro…

via Janetter for Mac

… it does mean that I can get on with using Twitter to gather the informed opinions of the populace to incorporate them into my thinking.

via Janetter for Mac

The weird problem with my Twitters is “resolved”, in that the problem has gone away via some magic. I don’t like that sort of magic, but…

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan, draft: Write for @ABCthedrum (first in ages); sort washing; write for @crikey_news; 1230 briefing Pyrmont; errands; remainder TBA.

via Plume for Android

And thus begins Wednesday. After a fashion.
