@HazRobert @crikey_news @702sydney I’ve no comment more generally than today’s irritation. But you can’t keep pulling out resources forever.

@rpy That said, I should give them all a try. I’m one of those people who finds a thing and stays with it until I really need to change.

@loupascale Thanks, Louise. This was my frustration in a nutshell. I was making breakfast but had better situational awareness. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to loupascale

@rpy I confess, I wasn’t using yours, but one of the other ones. Still, it’s about getting data to people, right?

@ElishaPearce @evanspw @KetanJ0 Thanks. I’ve had more compliments re that @crikey_news yarn than I was expecting.

Two hours from now, in Sydney, hear @privacyint’s @carlynyst chat about “Data Retention: the European experience”. efa.org.au/events/

I don’t know what any of those things mean, obviously. I was just told they’d be funny.

They said I’d get free trips on my Opal card, but I’ve licked it and licked it and nothing happened.

Parramatta. That’s more than 3/4 of the journey over, yet the is still perceived as the distant west of Sydney, somehow.

@dobes @RealNickHodge It’s going to be hard to top today’s effort.

@RealNickHodge @dobes In both cases, as soon as possible. Obviously.

RT @michaelneale Apparently that storm was, in parts, at the upper end of a category 2 cyclone/hurricane. So a bit more than a “bit of wet”

I am becoming convinced that some people fear that if they can’t hear their every thought voiced aloud then they might cease to exist.

I have been informed that I should call @R_Chirgwin “Chirgy”, or so says a source close to the matter.

@AussiePeteC @love0ntoast @abcnews @702sydney Yes, and the official advice has been utterly clear about this for many hours.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AussiePeteC

So, I shall now be turning my tweets and anger into a column for somebody. It’s a living.

via Janetter for Mac

@AussiePeteC @love0ntoast @abcnews @702sydney The point is that those roads are closed between Katoomba and Lithgow, not “into the city”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AussiePeteC

@MikeCarlton01 It’s just brilliant, isn’t it. As I said yesterday, it’s like the 1950s never ended!

Maybe @702sydney should be honest about this geographical vagueness and just refer to everything as “Past Glebe”.

No, @abcnews @702sydney, the storm did not cut power “to” three power stations, it cut power “from” them. Prepositions. What even are they?

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il fait froid et humide et déjà les idiots ne nous aident pas. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Still, @robbie_buck @702sydney, I suppose from inner Sydney “the Blue Mountains” is just an amorphous “here be dragons” blur. All good*.

via Janetter for Mac

Erm, @robbie_buck @702sydney, misleading to say “Blue Mountains line is closed”. Only beyond Katoomba to Lithgow. Bulk is unaffected.
