@NicholasFryer I suspect so, but it’s a little too early to tell.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer Thanks very much. It shall be my rainy day thing tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NicholasFryer I hadn’t noticed that sort of variation. But yes, it does work.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@megwall6 @JulianBurnside They were. But the action was all overseas. AFP (and, I think, ASIS) cooperation with other nations’ people.

via TweetDeck in reply to megwall6

@BXGD @JulianBurnside I don’t disagree with any of that.

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

@BXGD @JulianBurnside Well indeed. I won’t click though, because I’ve already watched the TV news tonight. Terrible tragedy.

@Gin_ev_ra Heh. Anzac IS a white male ceremony, yes.

“China ‘seriously concerned’ at New Zealand hack attempt report”, reports @Reuters reuters.com/article/2015/0…

via TweetDeck

@yinettesys Well yes, that was never submitted for approval, and was universally condemned.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

“‘Tiny hearts’ and ‘balls of steel’. Is this really what the world thinks of Australia?”, writes @JulianBurnside theguardian.com/commentisfree/…

via TweetDeck

@yinettesys They didn’t. It’s an official event, RSL being part of the organisers. It’s an Anzac Day event.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

@NewtonMark No, no. “Default fears” are things like spiders, snakes, the dark, clowns… yeah?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@yinettesys They already do. As you’ll hear further in, use of the word “Anzac” requires ministerial approval.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

@petstarr @monsieurarion Oh dear. I was going to mention the Florida one in the podcast, but linking the two is glorious.

via TweetDeck in reply to petstarr

@SnarkyPlatypus @yinettesys Look, I think I’ve spoken to you before about this.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@yinettesys So yeah, about this “white male” thing…

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

Me at @zdnetaustralia today: “Banning VPNs won’t fix streaming video geoblock grief” zdnet.com/article/bannin…

via TweetDeck

@yinettesys Well it can be anything, but ideally building on the Anzac Day discussions from the last episode. stilgherrian.com/edict/00040/

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

I’ve got three comments for “The 9pm Edict” so far, and they’re all from white male. Maybe someone would like to fix the imbalance.

via TweetDeck

Is the news triggering Anzac Day feels? You can send an audio comment for “The 9pm Edict” until 1700 AEST Tuesday. stilgherrian.com/edict/00040/

I bet @LeeLinChinSBS could stop this rain in an instant by using her special powers. But she won’t. She’ll be responsible.

via TweetDeck

@ClintonDucas I was thinking that myself, but wasn’t confident enough to go hard.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClintonDucas

Hey folks, it’s just fine for Crusader Rabbit to “celebrate” Anzac Day. He was a trainee priest. See gloss 2. oxforddictionaries.com/definition/eng…

via TweetDeck

@NicholasFryer @SnarkyPlatypus Well that concerns me. I don’t think this audience is ready to handle anything “weird”.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@SnarkyPlatypus @NicholasFryer I’m certainly happy with the state of thinking right now, yes.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@NicholasFryer Noted. I have two other contributions as well so far.

@ChiyaManga I know it’s a big thing. But I’m referring to the behaviour of the crowds, not the significance of the event.

@ssharwood True, but it’s not the thousands who’ll be there this year.

@Jumss If you ping me an email, I’ll be less likely to forget to organise something. Seems like a face-to-face thing?

via TweetDeck in reply to Jumss

@Jumss Squerb-related? Quite probably, but the next three weeks are insane for me, and I won’t be in Sydney at all this week..

via TweetDeck in reply to Jumss

I’ve just receive a message, “[NAME REDACTED] has been removed from the ditch”, which is even funnier because I know it to be the truth.

via TweetDeck

Oh, and I see that the fibretards are out to play today. Bonus.

This is going to be one of those weeks, isn’t it.
