@JohnBirmingham Oh excellent. I shall scroll back and, I trust, be both enlightened and amused.

I’ve been at the shops. In the meantime, @mediaalliance hasn’t accidentally declared support for Pol Pot or anything, have they?

@dfg77 Exactly that. Australians are very useful in that role, for a number of reasons.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dfg77

@dfg77 The “advisors” part is the interesting bit. That’s code for “access to Five Eyes intelligence”, I suspect.

How you “accidentally” write and send a government submission is a bit of a mystery to me.

Re-working my @zdnetaustralia column because certain arsehats realised what they’d done.

via Janetter for Mac

if the “copyright industries” really need 900,000 Australians to deliver their shit (which they don’t) then they’re ripe for drastic reform.

Now that Mr Rabbit has Stopped The Boats™ he can turn his attention to Stop the Pirates™. A man of action, he is.
