@cfsmtbation @RSprachrohr Thank you. I shall listen once the Internet of Trees starts behaving itself.

@jleyden @TheRegister A better headline would’ve been “Pommie punters particularly prone to piss-poor patching.” Remedial classes for you.

Oh wait. The SchnitzelBot is actually called @SchnitzelFollow, because the internet is a thousand kinds of stupid.

That earlier tweet reporting a schnitzel-related dialog with a local was missing the word “not”.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je fais affaire avec les complexités de la vie dans un village. avec de l’alcool. Et vous?

Getting grief from the publican because he recently saw me at another pub.

Receiving explanations of things that I never wished to understand.

Now I’ve been asked how long they have to wait before I get arrested under section 35P. No respect, these people.

Local, seeing my schnitzel: “What an awful meal.” Me: “Well it’s fucking well for you.” All laugh.

Oh. They gather early.

@cfsmtbation That’d be easier if I were familiar with the band’s oeuvre. But it’s a good suggestion.

I have decided to have a schnitzel and some wine, and then escape before the Oktoberfest Hallowe’en Karaoke Extravaganza starts.

Struggling to get my head around the concept of a combined Oktoberfest / Hallowe’en Karaoke night.

@__Marijana_ Thank you. It does only address one very narrow issue in relation to the data retention bill, however.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to __Marijana_

Wondering whether changing “criminal law-enforcement agency” to “criminal-law enforcement agency” might be a good amendment to the Bill.

“Telcos relieved at limited scope and cost of data retention law”, says @smh. smh.com.au/federal-politi… Does the story supports the headline?
