mukimu I’ve noticed my tweet frequency is proportionate to the amount of alcohol I’ve consumed. I need to tweet more.

@RealNickHodge I’m sure that I can connect to the Eurovision in some way. I will be in The America.

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Mobile broadband’s false promise” zd.net/10mkFuI

via Plume for Android

I have arrived at the place.

I love how @ozdj is live-tweeting his felching session.

via Janetter for Mac

@NickHodgeMSFT I wouldn’t have thought so. “I don’t wish to hear from X” is about personal taste, like not reading Dickens.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

I do say, @NickHodgeMSFT has an excellent Twitter mute list. nickhodge.com/blog/?p=3336

Oh that’s right. The thing is tonight. I am not going to the thing.

via Janetter for Mac

PitcherJenna Stupid sexy garlic bread.

I have arrived in Sydney and sent a thing to an editor. I’m not sure which is worse.

via Plume for Android

On a train. Writing. Ignoring you.

via Janetter for Mac

Secretly hoping we have another encounter with Bicycle Woman.

Mobile: Stand in the Sun; taxi to Wentworth Falls; pie, or substitute; 1331 train to Sydney Central; remainder is SEKRIT.

RT @cjlambert: @stilgherrian they have Freedom in The America. [Yes, but only for The Americans, not us Aliens.]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh, this is the reason for being in The America from Saturday. stilgherrian.com/personal/visit…

via Janetter for Mac

I seem to be ready for Sydney and beyond to The America. There’s 25 minutes until the taxi arrives, and I can finish writing on the train.

via Janetter for Mac

@Davidramli Oh that happened last night, and it’s been going all day. Quite amusing, really.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Davidramli

@michaelneale Sure, buy 2x devices, or just 2x SIMs, and pay 2x minimum monthly charges etc. I’m looking at base plans for an article tho.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@BeauGiles And yet that 120GB plan is not listed amongst the business plans on their website. telstra.com.au/business-enter…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BeauGiles

As far as I can tell, that Telstra 25GB/month mobile broadband plan is the biggest quota on offer in Australia? Kogan’s “unlimited” is dead?

via Janetter for Mac

@Telstra Ignore the peanut gallery, I’m just after a date for when that plan started being offered. Fact-checking. @jplonie @SnarkyPlatypus

via Janetter for Mac

@lucisam That’s right, that’s why I used the words “moderately misleading”, and then talk about choosing the time of comparison.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lucisam

@Telstra Folks, how long has your 25GB/month mobile broadband plan been available to customers? Seems new to me?

via Janetter for Mac

Well, Broadband Fans, nothing on today’s must-do list includes “talking about broadband some more”. So I’m off to do those other things.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh good, I’ve won $750,000 in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change / Nelson Mandela Foundation raffle. I’ll take the meat tray.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @dobes: O rly? pic.twitter.com/nBWkI1310p [Sorry, @TurnbullMalcolm, he’s right. You are so dumped.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @McDermie: @stilgherrian You support “supporting learning to read”? You elitist leftie! [Damn, sprung!]

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Write for @zdnetaustralia, belatedly; pack; tidy; train to Sydney, working en route; haircut; TGIF, in large doses.

via Janetter for Mac

And now some other dumbfuck arsehats will take THAT tweet as somehow “supporting the Liberals”. No, just supporting learning to read.

via Janetter for Mac

I find it astounding (well, I don’t) that people straight-up say a policy don’t say X when it does say X. Are they liars or just morons?

via Janetter for Mac

@rkjobling @murpharoo While not a @TurnbullMalcolm fan-boy, whatever that is, I have taken the trouble to read what’s being said.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rkjobling

@rkjobling @murpharoo @TurnbullMalcolm “Our target of universal access to minimum download data rates of 25 megabits per second by 2016…”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rkjobling

@jmacmullin @TurnbullMalcolm Huh? “Respectful debate about policy differences”? Oh you poor deluded boy… ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jmacmullin

@KierenAsh It’s interesting that “FTTP is faster” seem to be the end of the argument for so many, not the other factors. [Shrugs.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KierenAsh

@KierenAsh Though that’s a minor thing when you can put 1000/400 against any of them. And no-one’s arguing that FTTP isn’t fastest.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KierenAsh

@KierenAsh But the Coalition policy also has some at higher speeds on FTTP or HFC, so I chose to fudge-factor that in. Can argue either way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to KierenAsh

RT @DoctorKarl: Eclipse, Sydney, 0840 ( max at 0858) instagram.com/p/ZG7JFsJJ6l/ [Oh great, that’s ALL I need!]

via Janetter for Mac

@TurnbullMalcolm Harsh but probably fair. And the hatred one cops trying to put your case fairly, which is kinda the job of analysis! Hah!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TurnbullMalcolm

I suspect @TurnbullMalcolm would be surprised to see me described as one of his fan-boys, given how our conversations usually go.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s the article itself, though the nasty “went viral on social media” line [shudder!] was added by an editor. crikey.com.au/2013/05/09/you…

via Janetter for Mac

PositiveTony @crikey_news @stilgherrian Next time decleare your @TurnbullMalcolm fanboi status that is clear from reading your tweets

PositiveTony @crikey_news @stilgherrian Would appear whilst attacking people for not reading background paper you didn’t read or understand it

limchit85 @Dream_Brother_ @stilgherrian Looks as if he got paid by Turnbull to write this rubbish. Even a 5 yr old can do a better job.

The funniest are those whose bios and avatars embody the news-cycle imagery of party vs party, as if that’s all there is in the world.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s Friday, and I’m laughing at all the party-political tribal fucktards who’ve been hallucinating about what I believe. It’s quite funny.
