@ClintonDucas @GuardianAus @guardianstyle It’s not something I’d have in my own style manual, but there’s coherent argument for it.

@ClintonDucas @GuardianAus No, that’s in accordance with @guardianstyle for initialisms said as a word. They write “Nasa” too.

@phantomdiorama Well, the ISPs do have all the data, it’s a matter of what a mandatory retention scheme would record from that stream.

RT @kateiselin: @stilgherrian @R_Chirgwin Looks like it’s haunted, if you ask me. [This is also quite likely.]

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin I think that’s probably enough good news for one evening.

@R_Chirgwin Wet carpet extends out to the bathroom door.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin The water is about 5mm deep on the desk. Walking on the carpet to get there makes visible puddles around one’s feet. Joy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

So, @R_Chirgwin, carpet and desk in the back bedroom are splashably saturated, the ceiling is imploding. pic.twitter.com/jdZpPIiP5c

Oh dear, @R_Chirgwin, it appears that the storm was too much for the roof. Investigating the extent of the puddles.

@NewtonMark This was much the same, but with a cloud of steam from vaporised sap, and shards and splinters everywhere.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@franksting Nope, at the other end of the stormfront. It’s doing a pretty good job up here too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@swearyanthony Yeah you should be able to do better than that.

RT @PeteLawler: Do I have to tell you again, @stilgherrian? It’s Soapy the Ankle QC. [It’s true. I keep forgetting.]

via Janetter for Mac

@NewtonMark Same. When about 6yo watched my favourite back-yard climbing tree blown to smithereens by a direct hit. I was in awe.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@jasonlangenauer “Soapy” is apparently a reference to a “pompous and effete” barrister from “Rumpole”, but @MikeCarlton01 knows more.

via Janetter for Mac

Lightning strike 100m from where I’m sitting.

via Janetter for Mac

Just think, this was what A-G Soapy the Ankle WANTED to do as his first priority in office. From here on it’s LESS well thought through.

@therevmountain Oh I wasn’t part of the strike! I presented a local Sat night program on @triplej Adelaide 1990-1991.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to therevmountain

@therevmountain And I was one of the people playing it on the radio (@triplej, 1991, but the local ADE and PER programs ain’t remembered.)

An NWA reference dates one somewhat.

@R_Chirgwin I am far from caring that much about any of this, however.

@R_Chirgwin I’ve re-scanned to find the new SBS, but it ain’t finding much.

@R_Chirgwin Didn’t you have any shorter cables?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Oh, the device is finding more this time.

via Janetter for Mac

Sadly, @oberonsghost, the device does not seem to be able to find all the signals this far from the centre of the universe.
