The reconstructed mute filters seem to be holding up so far. A bit of leakage from some boring partisan cannon fodder, but that’s normal.

RT @garystark: I’m in a shared ride van. [I believe in less PC times they were called paddy wagons.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garystark

Quite a few people have pointed out that Mr Rabbit could be both of the things I suggested. Yes, there is that.

via Janetter for Mac

@jeffsonstein No, that’s correct. It’s returning after a gap. The planned election series plugged in that last “episode” never happened. :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

Here’s the full text of Mr Rabbit’s speech from tonight. scribd.com/doc/220679289/…

via Janetter for Mac

That is to say, if he believes it he’s a fool, and if he doesn’t believe it then he just straight-up lied about his thoughts.

via Janetter for Mac

Good God. Mr Rabbit said Gerard Henderson is “one of our foremost public intellectuals”? He’s either a fuckwit or a liar. No other choices.

via Janetter for Mac

That said, and as I keep stressing, my interest is not party-political. Both “sides” have played this game. One side can do something today.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @PeteLawler: Maybe should follow it up with a trip to a Labor heartland area [Indeed, in due course. That’s why we need more episodes.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PeteLawler

My visit to Morrison’s home turf is explained in this video. youtube.com/watch?v=fz_Tnl… It’s now schedued for this coming Saturday.

via Janetter for Mac

I haven’t seen @4corners yet, but it sounds like my visit to Morrison’s home turf on Saturday will be even more interesting now.

via Janetter for Mac

So, thanks to Apple’s inability to string a couple code subroutines together, there shall not be an updated graph of my @Pozible tonight.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce @Wyld You mean Umberto Eco. But yeah, all these Italians look the same.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

RT @mpesce: Why wouldn’t they just convert it automatically and STFU? [Why indeed. If only they could have contacted the vendor… Oh wait.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mpesce

Yes, I was still using Numbers ’08. Because my needs were simple. But you can’t just copy it from a backup.

Oh they’re such jokesters in Cupertino! Why would you even make things that worked like this? pic.twitter.com/YMPP8xkGkz

@elronxenu Really? Does the job for me, generally, apart from this import arsehattery.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to elronxenu

@elronxenu I refuse to call it “Mail.app”, because that’s not what it appears as. It’s by Apple and it’s called “Mail”. “Apple Mail”. Cope.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to elronxenu

How can Apple Mail not know how to read mailboxes created by itself? I mean, it has to read them to work to begin with!

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Le sommeil semble être une anguille insaisissable. Il ya beaucoup de raisons de faire appel à l’astéroïde.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Apple Mail has a seriously fucking weird idea about what an “Import Mailboxes…” command should do.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis contrarié, et impatient de l’arrivée de l’astéroïde. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac

This “sharing economy” shared media group mind seems to be down to the current cover story on @WIRED. That’s even funnier.

I detect that the “sharing economy” is more evidence of a single shared (and not very clever) group mind in the world’s media this week.

@kjmci Part of the job description for a general media journalist or producer is to have a wide range of knowledge. This is a huge gap.
