@JoeHockey While I get the train regularly, the ferry is a much more pleasant journey. A bargain, compared with tourist boats. Enjoy!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JoeHockey

I wonder whether @JoeHockey and John Faulkner will also be catching the train to Parramatta for this gig.

via Janetter for Mac

Helping @BobBrownFndn catch the right train to Parramatta for his gig tonight. Because I’m helpful.

@TurnbullMalcolm I assume you’ll be blogging about it later?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

@TurnbullMalcolm I might leave you enjoy the pleasures of Rockdale today. :) More important to hear from the good burghers there than me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

So there’s still time for me to get to Rockdale RSL, if you need any help there, @TurnbullMalcolm? ;)

Apparently that appears to be the entirety of the lyrics.

“With so many light years to go / And things to be found (to be found) / I’m sure that we’ll all miss her so / It’s the final countdown.”

“Oh, We’re heading for Venus (Venus) / And still we stand tall / Cause maybe they’ve seen us / And welcome us all, yeah”

via Janetter for Mac

“I guess there is no one to blame / We’re leaving ground (leaving ground) / Will things ever be the same again? / It’s the final countdown.”

“We’re leaving together / But still it’s farewell / And maybe we’ll come back / to earth, who can tell?”

True, @damncabbage, in the first Dotcom Boom I was told off for putting too much detail in a business plan. Looked “too finished for VC”.

@bernietb Yes, I’m familiar with the term . Which reminds me, it’s been ages since I’ve been to Newcastle.

via Janetter for Mac

@dobes @DownloadABC We could, too. Webcam plus late-night recordings plus blackmail equals profit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

RT @dobes: @stilgherrian @DownloadABC you should say that we could fund NDIS with it. Really hit the mainstream. [Excellent idea!]

@RacheyFountain But go with “the dark web” as an intro, and I’ll compare with with “the criminal underground”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RacheyFountain

@RacheyFountain It isn’t really a thing. It’s just stuff that happens that doesn’t draw attention to itself, like blokes in a pub car park.
