@BXGD @ABCthedrum True. It’s primarily a think thank to help the AU government set its strategic priorities.

@dobes That will be a glorious day. We shall all be grateful and joyous.

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh I couldn’t say. That’s part of the problem.

Suddenly remembering some of the people I’ve kissed this year because the immediate social-professional circumstances demanded it. Sad.

@drearyclocks Trust me, they are not interchangeable. But a malapropism means plausible deniability.

@zfybo Why, what’s he done this week? I’ve had the news turned off, pretty much.

@waxpancake Indeed. There surely needs to be canonical completeness involved.

@waxpancake I don’t want to punch you now. I want to send medication.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to waxpancake

@waxpancake Ah yes, see, that captures the obsessive-compulsive thing. It does seem to have been downgraded to “montage” lately.

@michaelmeloni “This supercut, like all others, consists of out-of-context scenes and dialog jump-cut together artlessly.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelmeloni

Who is responsible for the word “supercut” and have they been punched in the face yet?

via Janetter for Mac

@piecritic Yep. Now, the text field is ONLY used if the number-based transactions fails or gets reported as an error.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

@piecritic Then it evolved to operator keys in number, gets “no such account”, then looks up paper records to find the right number.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

@piecritic Pretty much. In paper days people may not have even known the recipient’s account number.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

@piecritic The transaction goes ahead based on the BSB and account number, but if it fails, a human looks at the text field to fix.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

@piecritic But it means the name OF the recipient’s account, e.g. “Example Pty Ltd T/AS Splotto”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to piecritic

@piecritic It’s a text field used to track down intention when an error is reported.
