@cxi @scott_thewspot So really what you’re saying is that we need a new Denise/Dennis record type, say GN for gender?

@dobes @lukehopewell @SnarkyPlatypus I think I need a little quite time now, alone, without people watching.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@lukehopewell @dobes @SnarkyPlatypus Although I’m not sure how this tests how good a liar Luke is. Slightly confused.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell @dobes @SnarkyPlatypus It sounds like we’re starting to get a plan here. This is good.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@dobes @lukehopewell Did they have guns in The Hunger Games? I like guns.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

@lukehopewell Oh, we’ll have to devise some sort of test. Like some lame TV game show.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell Ah yeah I’d figured that because you are a really bad liar generally.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@lukehopewell Oh I agree. Which is why I’m about to say things on the electric wireless in Darwin.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@0x1C You speak the truth this time. I figured I’d berated the world enough for one day.

@dobes So, the traditional legal doctrine of “Suck shit, Coppers, you’ll never catch me!”? Fair enough.

BTW, if someone tweets party-political talking points at me, and that’s all that’s in their stream, well, I just mute them straight away.

Double-checking… yes, Verizon’s embargo for journalists was midnight US EDT, 1400 AEST. That’ll put some noses out of joint.

@phbarratt Actually that’s bad of me. Our lot are too respectful of the rule of law to do a coup, I would think. Or would like to think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to phbarratt

Also, @phbarratt, Abbott’s “lost control of borders” line is an insult to the professionalism of armed forces, customs etc. Wants a coup?

via Janetter for Mac

@glengyron Thank you, but don’t word it like that or there’ll be a parody account.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

phbarratt How many boats does Mr Abbott think have entered Australia undetected? None? So what does he mean when he says Govt has “lost control”?

When anyone boasts about how many visitors their website gets, always ask them whether they’ve filtered out the robots, spam comments etc.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s clear that the majority of the site’s traffic is malicious, followed by search engine reindexing, with humans running a distant third.

via Janetter for Mac

Also one zombie machine in Turkey has made 17,000 accesses, though they may be spam comments, not login attempts.
