RT @dfat: Australia & Indonesia announce a Red Meat and Cattle Forum - check out this week’s bit.ly/tradetalk [Pants off!]

RT @carolduncan: @mediahunter One beer and I’m in my pyjamas under a doona. [What will you do for four beers? Asking for a friend.]

via Janetter for Mac

Who said @chrisberg could have fun?

via Janetter for Mac

Democracy is just fucked.

via Janetter for Mac

@shiftkey No, it’s all cool. It’d the arsehats that don’t get that a critique of a policy or tactic isn’t because I’m against the proposer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shiftkey

chrisberg hey if tony abbott is so opposed to invisible markets then what about derivatives lol

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 9:02 PM, Jul 15th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

@shiftkey Yep, for 90% of the punters, politics is nothing more than their side 100% right, the other side 100% wrong, Shits me to tears.

RenatoOpiceBlum RT @psael: Dropbox’s new security policy implies that they lied about privacy from the start —boingboing.net/2011/04/21/dro… cc: @Dropbox

Lest anyone thinks that me quoting that stuff is party-politcal tribalism, well, it ain’t. It’s about Mr Rabbit, and nothing but Mr Rabbit.

via Janetter for Mac

“This is an absolute joke and confirms … that Tony Abbott is simply not up to being the leader of the nation. Happy to take questions.”

via Janetter for Mac

“…and telling them that, ‘Look, this is just about the non-delivery of an invisible substance to no one’.” (2/2)

via Janetter for Mac

Senator Wong from her presser today: “I’d ask you to just pause for a minute and imagine Tony Abbott at an international meeting…” (1/2)

via Janetter for Mac

@adm_76 Yeah well @jdub is an arsehat, he can’t help it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adm_76

Look, @jdub, if you don’t understand Perl then you don’t understand computation. It’s as simple as that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jdub

Ah here we go. Electricity has been restored at @bunjaree. And there was much rejoicing.

via Janetter for Mac

FFS, how long does it take? Fuel valve on, ignition on, PULL!

via Janetter for Mac

Actually, @R_Chirgwin, I see a torchlight staggering to the generator shed. Standing by for the sound of electricity at @bunjaree.

via Janetter for Mac

Hahahahaha! Blackout at @bunjaree! Ping @R_Chirgwin. Waiting for excited activity from a nearby building. Putting my shoes on anyway.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jplonie: Gay AND a women. [No, I don’t think that’s even possible. No at Oxford. Maybe at Cambridge…]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I’m sure all Rhodes Scholars have been pure red-blooded heterosexuals with no hint of buggery whatsoever. [Of course.]

via Janetter for Mac

Yes, @jplonie, I know Rachel Maddow was a Rhodes Scholar, but that just shows how the whole concept has gone to the dogs.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jeamland: Does it say “No Poofters” anywhere? [I think that’ just generally assumed, and not spoken about.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Moral force of character and instincts to lead, and to take an interest in one’s fellow beings.” I do assume Mr Rabbit read all of them?

via Janetter for Mac

“Truth, courage, devotion to duty, sympathy for and protection of the weak, kindliness, unselfishness and fellowship; …”

via Janetter for Mac

“Literary and scholastic attainments; Energy to use one’s talents to the fullest, as exemplified by fondness for and success in sports; …”

via Janetter for Mac

So, this is what a Rhodes Scholarship is all about. I pretty much went to school with these arseholes. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodes_Sc…

via Janetter for Mac

Back at @bunjaree, having had an interesting impromptu meeting and done the shopping.

@1050Hz I’ve been to the US a few times, but not outside much of the left-hand coast tech world. I’d like to explore more. I know that stat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 1050Hz

What, @R_Chirgwin, is a “hipster chicken”?

Nine News is just now speculating that Kevin Rudd will go for an early election to capitalise on “soaring” popularity.

via Janetter for Mac

@Asher_Wolf @piecritic Exactly. And indeed I’ll be writing something about that very point later this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@MiaFreedman @nicchristensen Yeah, but @mumbrella understands that “having a business model” and “not paying people” aren’t synonyms.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MiaFreedman

@Asher_Wolf @piecritic Oh, I never meant (and never will mean) “unsurprising” as a reason not to talk about something!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@Asher_Wolf @piecritic Given that DDoSing commercial opponents has been around for years, DDoSing PPAU’s membership form is unsurprising.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@Asher_Wolf @piecritic Hang on, what? No, I didn’t tweet the datacentre DDoS thing. Or am I confused now?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@piecritic @Asher_Wolf I you don’t want it retweeted, don’t tweet it, Sunshine. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

RT @TatteredRemnant: The spoken word is both invisible and weightless. [Oh, I love you!]

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe the Liberal Party should be led by someone who can be trusted to stand behind the words that dribble from their mouth to microphone.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on, didn’t Tony Abbott say that, whatever he says, it doesn’t count unless it’s in writing? This’ll be a fun election campaign!

via Janetter for Mac

At 1500 AEST, Senator Penny Wong is holding “a brief press conference regarding Tony Abbott’s comments on climate change”. For the lulz.

via Janetter for Mac

davpope images.canberratimes.com.au/2013/02/27/406… MT @Hil121: @davpope Could you please give a link to your Greg Hunt cartoon? I feel the need to see it again today!

@garystark I know, the US is far less urbanised than Australia. Australia doesn’t realise it’s urban / suburban reality either though.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garystark

I love how Americans are always calling for “town meetings”, as if they’re still a 19th century rural republic. It’s so cute.

via Janetter for Mac

@willsmore298 You’d be confusing the man himself with the audience he’s trying to appeal to.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to willsmore298

@19bk69 Ah, yes, I’d mentally filed that under “domestic US story” so hadn’t noticed there’d been no further stories. That’s a slow-burner.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@19bk69 Who’s Michael Hastings? (Sorry I tend to skip over the comments.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

“Tony Abbott, a Prime Minister for all Australians who failed Year 8.”

via Janetter for Mac

@adm_76 Well, the train crew didn’t find it near my seat when they turned around at Lithgow. It may have been handed in elsewhere.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adm_76

Final plug, me at @zdnetaustralia: “Microsoft sucked into ever-growing NSA vortex: who’s next?” zdnet.com/microsoft-suck…

Mon plan, belated: A day of plodding through comms and administrivia, punctuated by lunch and shopping in Leura. We’re up to the lunch bit.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. I forgot to do a “Mon plan” tweet. And then I’ve been conserving bandwidth until I see if my 4G Wi-Fi thingo gets found or not.

Hello, Monday. I am “looking forward” to a 13C day with a shower or two increasing. How excitement.
