@bernietb @Pozible I think the core problem here is that @franksting can’t work internets.

via Plume for Android in reply to bernietb

@bernietb @Pozible @franksting Yes, that’s the sort of thing I was thinking of. It looks remarkably like that in the admin interface.

via Plume for Android in reply to bernietb

@franksting @Pozible @bernietb Oh, today’s update was number 14, I’ve assumed they appear under the “updates” menu item. Now I am confused.

@bairdjulia The AFP doesn’t need a warrant to get phone metadata (numbers, times, duration, location), only for listening to the content.

via Plume for Android in reply to bairdjulia

@bernietb @franksting I’ve been meaning to ask, does @Pozible send the updates by email?

sabinewolff Reporter saying the Indonesian F-16s “screamed overhead” leaving Darwin in “a very loud manner”. Yeah, that’s because they’re F-16s.

@semibogan @Bugcrowd Excellent, I’m glad our best people are on the case.

chrisberg major foreign policy crisis yes but did you see what that guy tweeted

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 3:55 PM, Nov 21st, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

Nah, @skwashd @0xAli, anonymous sources never no-comment. The news value is either the comment itself or the authority of the name.

via Janetter for Mac

You know, @Bugcrowd will be so fucked once the last bug is removed from the internet. No forward thinking there at all.

RT @BundyB: But now you can write “we attempted to contact but they are yet to provide a response.” [EXACTLY JOURNALISM RIGHT THERE YES.]

via Janetter for Mac

I SO AM A JOURNALIST BECAUSE I JUST MADE A TELEPHONE CALL AND THAT’S LIKE HAVING AN ACTUAL SOURCE. Got voicemail but.

via Janetter for Mac

@BundyB See, that’s sporting commentary in a nutshell right there!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

@BundyB No, but they can tell you when you’re doing it wrong.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

Sporting commentators just know everything about fuckin’ everything, don’t they.

@abaranov @michaelneale Well I’m glad that someone is finally taking security seriously!

@abaranov @michaelneale Are you sure you’re not taking this just a little more seriously than the situation warrants?

All that said, the line “No, it was a proper home-made flamethrower” was acceptable social commentary.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @BundyB: Are you taking about that whatever-it-was with three guys on arsing about on a cricket pitch? [Yes. Yes I am.]

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently, on Channel Nine, “ignorant racist yobbo cunt” is an aspirational demographic. Sorry, what’s that Mr Howard? Oh yes. As you were.

via Janetter for Mac

Fuck that was dreadful. It wouldn’t pass muster on rural community radio mid-dawn. But Channel Nine puts it to air with a Toyota logo.

via Janetter for Mac

At what level of television network management is it decided that international sports coverage should be larded with ignorance and racism?

via Janetter for Mac

On the television there is now some patronising racist bullshit about goats and “doing things differently over there” as cricket “coverage”.

@saasu Thanks, Coralie, as I think about it now it should be a straightforward job. Be in touch soon.

Jesus fuck I just accidentally clicked through to some politics live blogue. I felt my entire brain melting into a puddle of pointlessness.

So in the Philippines, fishing boats got destroyed, right? So they made new boats out of abandoned refrigerators. theatlantic.com/infocus/2013/1…

@saasu Yes, @Pozible has a comprehensive CSV export for projects. Thank you, I shall drop you an email some time between now and Monday.

RT @Altraider: Play Kenny G at 78 ? [WTF? That’d sound like leprechauns on amphetamines.]

via Janetter for Mac

I couldn’t sit at my usual table in this establishment, which is not a pub, obviously, because a Christmas tree has stolen the power outlet.

via Janetter for Mac

I saw on the internet a profile by a chap seeking a gentleman friend and he listed his music as Kenny G. Imagine what a dud root he’d be.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @safzoro: I am amazed that John Denver hasn’t provoked more killing sprees. [Also, Kenny G.]

@SpawnRich It probably depends which kind of meme you mean, Dawkinsite or Cheeseburger.

@shaneobrist Thanks. It’s a magnificent spring day in Sydney, and I’ve got an afternoon of pondering ahead. It may happen over ale.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to shaneobrist

@smartbrain I shall! This conversation has reminded me how long it’s been since my last visit. I’ll have to make an excuse.

via Plume for Android in reply to smartbrain

@shaneobrist It’s true, I have just retrieved the forgotten object and am now changing plans to avoid a plague of year 10 and 11 students.

@smartbrain Oh we have our own version of ballot box idiots this year. Western Australia will have to have a whole new senate election.

via Plume for Android in reply to smartbrain

@smartbrain Thanks. There’s my afternoon reading sorted. I haven’t kept track of the current round of democracy style.

via Plume for Android in reply to smartbrain

@smartbrain Oh I wasn’t trying to downplay the situation… There was gunfire. There were tanks.

via Plume for Android in reply to smartbrain

@smartbrain You gave the impression that you loved it. The adrenalin rush?

via Plume for Android in reply to smartbrain

@smartbrain Hah! But surely my point was that you were NOT a traditional journalist, nevertheless you were committing acts of journalism.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je viens acheived une heure de panne. Je suis un chapeau du rectum. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Oh excellent. I have just walked half an hour away from a thing that I left somewhere half an hour ago. Further walking will now ensue.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, people, that was a glorious little flurry of predictability, wasn’t it. You should be ashamed of yourselves.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks to Twitter, we just shout random demands and expect people, the right people, to pay immediate attention to us. It’s all me me me!

via Janetter for Mac

@saasu So, do you guys have an easy way to import bookkeeping data from a @Pozible project? Or will I have to do, like, thinking and stuff?
