@VirginAustralia Thanks, I thought it might be a phone-to-fix job. Cheers.

@VirginAustralia Problem. My card was charged fare + $70 for an extra bag each way. But the booking only has the fare, no bags. How to fix?

via TweetDeck

@ScooterDMC That was a thought, but given where I’m starting from, $35 per flight extra is the better option.

via TweetDeck in reply to ScooterDMC

@_midofo_ Yeah, but it’s happening thru clever screen-scraping, not because the data is published in a sensible format.

via TweetDeck in reply to _midofo_

@SnarkyPlatypus I doubt that it could happen in SG unless SG changes dramatically.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@VirginAustralia Hah. Hardly. But I believe your Twitter-CRM integration issues a warning of some kind. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to VirginAustralia

@SnarkyPlatypus Um, he still IS making videos. Commentary on the election process. youtube.com/watch?v=wU6m4v…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus By “eventually”, you mean “Monday”?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@VirginAustralia Anyway, that gives me the ball-park figure, which will do for now. Ta for your help.

via TweetDeck in reply to VirginAustralia

@VirginAustralia Thanks very much for that, I’d forgotten that deal. But I’m not a musician, but a journalist and podcast producer.

via TweetDeck in reply to VirginAustralia

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh he’s out because his sentence was shorter than the time he’d spent on remand. Unless he’s been hit with more charges.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh, while you’re there, please pass on my regards to Amos Yee.

@mrgrumpystephen Mate, if you fly with hard drugs on @VirginAustralia you have to share with the cabin crew.

@VirginAustralia I see that for a Saver fare, I’m allowed 23kg in a checked-in item. How much is an extra checked item SYD-MEL?

via TweetDeck

@CompleatCunt @VirginAustralia Ah, no, we’re talking mic stands, cables etc. I won’t fit in the backpack. We’re up to 11kg so far.

I’m basically trying to work out how to get my recording kit to fit into @VirginAustralia’s luggage weight limits.

via TweetDeck

Wow. I can just type “Sennheiser e835 weight” into Google and it extracts the weight from the produce specs.

via TweetDeck

@bradsprigg Ah yes, it certainly is. But hey, let’s focus on what other people can be blamed for, right? God, what a mess it all is.

via TweetDeck in reply to bradsprigg

@bradsprigg Not “ignoring” at all. That’s a separate question. We’re talking about the vehicles.

marshontap Speaking as a daddy, I can confirm that dictatorship is the preferred and proven model. If you want a daddy for a PM, you’re an idiot.

I say, the agenda for next week’s @AISA_National conference is packed with good stuff. aisa.org.au/aisa-conferenc…

via TweetDeck

It would appear that the US Treasury isn’t aware that the entire third world runs on Toyota 4WD vehicles. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

via TweetDeck

@dobes @R_Chirgwin @darrenpauli Well there’s a future podcast episode sorted, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@SnarkyPlatypus It’s certainly something to consider putting on the CV.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

LOOK I AM JUST READING FROM THE NEWS REPORT THAT @MarkDiStef WROTE SO PLEASE DIRECT ALL COMPLAINTS IN HIS DIRECTION.

“… not necessarily a sugar daddy, in the purely sexual and materialistic senses. Although I can imagine Malcolm giving a good rutting.”

The pleasant listening experience of Apple Music’s House channel is marred by adverts for Telstra mobile phone plans. A clash of styles.

via TweetDeck

So @glengyron, has your little game of “Daddy Turnbull and the Creepy Family” been drawn to @MarkDiStef’s attention?

via TweetDeck

I hadn’t realised there’s @austlii equivalents across the Commonwealth and other Common Law jurisdictions. commonlii.org

via TweetDeck

@jonkudelka You’re imagining things. Goddam cartoonists are always imagining things.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonkudelka

There are things being tweeted with which I choose not to engage.

So @austlii is hosting the Law via Internet (LvI) Conference 2015 in Sydney on 9-11 Nov. Fascinating. lvi2015.org

Thu plan, draft: Kick off some client geekery; map out production schedule for next seven weeks; lock in next week’s logistics; wine.

@chris23 Ah of course, yes. I am a fool.

@chris23 My original headline was that they should be sent to re-education camps, but there was a complaint.

@chris23 Chrome, too, is a kind of religion.
