@sirneggles I’m a bit rusty on power grid grade generation. I was briefed once years ago, when Adelaide’s Dry Creek station was opened.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sirneggles

@sirneggles My understanding is there’s fine-grain control to match engine power to load, to maintain the 50Hz/60Hz AC output.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sirneggles

@SnarkyPlatypus On me dit que le budget n’est pas en mesure d’inclure une bombe nucléaire de 10 kilotonnes. Décevoir.

I’m… I’m kinda a bit shaky now. Visions of a world without “The Inbetweeners 2”. Jesus, Burke, and I thought “Threads” was scary! [Shudder.]

via Janetter for Mac

Burke is right, of course. The fabric of our society would be destroyed if it were not for “The Inbetweeners 2”.

via Janetter for Mac

“Crazies”, that is to say, people who are mentally unstable when compared with Village Roadshow co-CEO Graham Burke. Goodness.

@Colvinius @eldifusor By comparison, I might use a conference hashtag to participate in the conversation even though I’m not there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Colvinius

@Colvinius @eldifusor There’s a point: Does the hashtag mean a tweet IS from/about Ferguson, or merely “related” to the narrative? Dunno.
