@chrisbrownie @NickHodgeMSFT No problems. Closest I’ve got to RFDS is a presentation of their saying they cover where NBN doesn’t

chrisbrownie Massive long shot, but does anyone on my Twitters have a relationship with anyone involved in the Royal Flying Doctor Service?

@leslienassar @joshgnosis Thanks, Leslie and Josh, that’s pretty much the first half of my column done.

RT @snurb_dot_info: Are we unhinged yet ? Are we unhinged yet ? <repeat until 7 Sep.> [Sound advice, this.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @AusElectoralCom: @glengyron Had to google headmate! Got authorised evidence of identity? lol [And it’s only the first night…]

via Janetter for Mac

@leslienassar @joshgnosis Yep, and it looks like I’ll be writing about it tomorrow. Questions shall be asked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar @joshgnosis Well, yes, that was my point earlier. A quick glance at the code suggests it’d be pretty easy. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

RT @leighsales: I love @JezFernandezABC ‘s newsreading. So authoritative yet warm. Very classy. [There is that, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

It’s pretty impressive, @WP_DownUnder @davispg, but it was a bright sunny day and the train was moving slowly at that point.

I don’t have the bandwidth to post the video I shot, but here’s a frame grab. flickr.com/photos/stilghe…

I wonder whether it’s worth looking at the JavaScript embedded in that thing, to ensure those third parties can’t access participants’ data.

via Janetter for Mac

The ABC’s Vote Compass is interesting, but I’m not happy with the third-party tracking cookies in it. abc.net.au/votecompass/

RT @expectproblems: OH: “It’s down to the bleached arsehole and the sperm whale.” [You mean “or”, no? Oh.]

via Janetter for Mac

I just listened back to “The 9pm Edict” #12 from the last election. Only 16 mins. I’d forgotten how it ended. Heh. stilgherrian.com/edict/00012/

via Janetter for Mac

RT @R_Chirgwin: Should I offer to play barrel girl for the draw? I still have The Turnbull Waistcoat. [I’ll bear that in mind!]

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin Oh, you poor, dear, innocent man, you have no idea what is about to unfold…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

NewtonMark Just checking, but since this is the first election since Australia was excised from its own migration zone, are we still eligible to vote?

via Tweetbot for Mac (retweeted on 5:41 PM, Aug 4th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Thank you, @ChrissieM @sylmobile @chrisjrn and others. All manner of things have been pondered over recent months. Stand by.

via Janetter for Mac

I do miss the drama of the Cnut of the Week prize draw from the Cocktail Shaker of Integrity.

via Janetter for Mac

Here’s the original web page for “Stilgherrian Live” episode 53. The frame grab explains it all, really. stilgherrian.com/stilgherrian-l…

via Janetter for Mac

As it happens, the last episode of “Stilgherrian Live” had a political theme. ustream.tv/recorded/20966…

via Janetter for Mac

Hmmm… So should “The 9pm Election” be an audio podcast, or video? I suspect audio, ‘cos I have the workflows. But video can show stuff.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @R_Chirgwin: Some suggestions for “maintaining the will to live” through this campaign will be most welcome! [Easy. Heroin. Lots of it.]

via Janetter for Mac

dannolan Fuck they are both such muppets

So here’s “The 9pm Edict” from the last time an Australian election kicked off. stilgherrian.com/edict/00012/ Yes, I’m re-working my schedule…

via Janetter for Mac

@tomjd @StartSomeGood Ta for that, but would my podcast style fit with your more -worthy causes? Last election’s: stilgherrian.com/edict/00012/

@smperris @chrisbrownie True. And Apollo 11 was nowhere near as good as you think. Here’s the AU feed. youtube.com/watch?v=CtwSgv…

Rudd accepts Sky’s plan for a debate tomorrow night, if Abbott will do it. And one every week of the campaign. Dear God, spare us!

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie I’m near Wentworth Falls, and threw a rabbit-ears antenna onto a nearby TV. I could get a better image, but CBF.

RT @sylmobile: @stilgherrian @BernardKeane @asouthcottmp don’t forget my placard pic on Friday! instagram.com/p/cfHc8Jkdc0/ [Oh dear God…]

via Janetter for Mac

I wish I had a dollar for every political news and blog “Publish” button pressed this hour.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BernardKeane: needed a “FIRST!” RT @asouthcottmp: First poster up in Boothby instagram.com/p/clHUsLtQND/ [And last to be cleaned up after.]

via Janetter for Mac

I removed the hastag from @AusElectoralCom’s tweet ‘cos people using arsehat hashtags don’t deserve a vote.

via Janetter for Mac

MT @AusElectoralCom: Once writs are issued there’ll be 7 days before rolls close. Enrol online aec.gov.au

via Janetter for Mac

So @smh was actually right? Fuck me dead.

via Janetter for Mac

So later up I’ll be telling you how you can help make “The 9pm Election” podcast happen, and also how you can prevent it.

via Janetter for Mac

According to @crikey_news, that date of 7 Sept has been confirmed by the Prime Minister’s Office.

via Janetter for Mac

“It’s on: PM names federal election date for Sep 7”, writes @crikey_news, instead of 7 Sept like Australians do. crikey.com.au/2013/08/04/rud…

via Janetter for Mac

Working title: “The 9pm Election”.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh you arsehats! Using as a hashtag? WHICH election? AND WE ALREADY KNOW THE FUCKING YEAR YOU MORONS.

via Janetter for Mac

dobes Geoblock down, that means it is going to be wall-to-wall talking heads. You’re welcome ex-pats.

The Prime Minister has just called a press conference for 1600 AEST in the Prime Minister’s Courtyard, Parliament House.

@soundscaper Yep, it’s perfect for top’n’tailing some clips and adding standard titles. And it’s right here on the computer.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to soundscaper

Editing video for the first time in ages. Old Final Cut Express won’t run. Using iMovie ’11, and finding that it’s not completely shit.

Sun plan, confirmed: Plod through a large-ish backlog of writing and podcast production and stuff, in whatever order feels more comfortable.

@SnarkyPlatypus C’est OK, j’ai mes propres méthodes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus J’ai beaucoup, beaucoup de choses à faire, et il est difficile de décider quoi faire ensuite.

Dear @RNBBing, that was a damn fine report on gender issues at ADFA by James Woodford. Thanks. abc.net.au/radionational/…

via Janetter for Mac

THEY HAD A ONESIE PARTY AT ADFA FFS WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE THE PLACE MUST BE CLOSED DOWN IMMEDIATELY.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. C’est un jour de confusion. Puissent vos voyages aller bien. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

ADFA being the Australian Defence Force Academy, of course. Reporter James Woodford was in the first group of cadets in 1986.

via Janetter for Mac

Listening to ’s @RNBBing’s “Would you send your daughter to ADFA?”, less Edwardian than the title sounds. abc.net.au/radionational/…
