No, my understanding is that it’s disjointed reactionary crap, unlikely to go past the initial 5 eps. twitter.com/TwitterTVAU/st…

@_midofo_ That’s not particularly low rent any more. We’ll see if the development has low-rent places available. Won’t hold my breath.

I seem to have said some rubbish on @amworldtodaypm about the hack of the CIA bloke’s email. abc.net.au/pm/content/201…

@raejohnston @walkleys @AllanJClarke Excellent. In my defence, his work has been TV, and I watch little TV. I’ll check the @BuzzFeedOz yarn.

via TweetDeck in reply to raejohnston

@darkhorse166 @walkleys @QuarterlyEssay Yes, you should be ashamed. He puts his argument powerfully. And he’s a nice guy.

via TweetDeck in reply to darkhorse166

For reasons utterly beyond my comprehension, @walkleys has not put the finalists’ Twitter handles in the tweets about them.

via TweetDeck

These alleged cartoonists have also been nominated for @walkleys. twitter.com/walkleys/statu…

@raejohnston @BuzzFeedOz @walkleys Well there you go. I know not of @AllanJClarke’s work, so I’ll have to rectify that.

via TweetDeck in reply to raejohnston

And finally, at the VERY END, @walkleys tweets a link to a readable version. twitter.com/walkleys/statu…

I am VERY pleased to see David Kilcullen nominated at the @walkleys for his excellent @QuarterlyEssay. Read it. twitter.com/walkleys/statu…

Thanks to Eventualities, I’m not in Sydney tonight. This means catching the 0358 train to get to Domestic at 0606 for VA812 SYD-MEL at 0715.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Indeed. Anyway, there’s nothing to cause excess energy consumption, so it’s just the shitty cloud cover until today.

The waratah at @bunjaree’s Wattle Cottage isn’t quite so nice any more, @R_Chirgwin. pic.twitter.com/KmacRBPEKX

Ah yes, @R_Chirgwin, here’s that yellow waratah at @bunjaree’s Tea Tree Cottage. pic.twitter.com/lUtStCfWtX

I mention this because I see there’s plenty of room at @bunjaree. bunjareecottages.com.au Hit up @R_Chirgwin. (2/2)

I’m just thinking, after all this rain today, the Blue Mountains will be lovely on the weekend, with birds and the waterfalls… (1/2)

@R_Chirgwin Perhaps slavishly copying the handout, and it’s the government that can’t spell.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Is there a party tonight?

via TweetDeck

Well, @abcnews, that was the silliest mistake today, bra none.

via TweetDeck

@GiovanniTorre There’s kind of a resemblance, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to GiovanniTorre

This could run all day.

I hope @sarahgerathy realises she’s made a boob.

The whole project could still go tits-up, though. It’ll need support. twitter.com/treespiepurr/s…

Although some sort of overly-huge breast development, and/or a big lubricant pit, could be fun, eh @abcnews?

@iain_chalmers @mpesce The other day @R_Chirgwin figured out NBN will spend a total of $64 million on patch cables or somesuch.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@juhasaarinen @JonoH @franksting @mpesce Presumably th the resellers have access to the data, wrapped up in NDA arsehattery.

via Plume for Android in reply to juhasaarinen

@franksting @JonoH @juhasaarinen @mpesce I’m happy to be corrected on this. Where can I download the street by street cable plans?

via Plume for Android in reply to franksting

@JonoH @franksting @juhasaarinen @mpesce Indeed, all this stuff is known, but the GIS files are treated as SEKRIT commercial data.

via Plume for Android in reply to JonoH

@posty Ta for that. I’m not quite sure what to make of it, but it’s certainly a thing.

@bigmac Details, details. You need to chill more.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigmac

@bigmac “Presumed.” Yes, because that’s exactly what legitimate Word docs do.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigmac

@bigmac Orly? I didn’t look that closely, tok be honest. Was it something particularly interesting?

via TweetDeck in reply to bigmac

There is quite a lot of pleuting happening at @bunjaree right now.

JohnJohnsonson When Germany is pleading with the Jews to accept that it caused the Holocaust, you know humankind has climbed the Mount Everest of batshit.

@DCoopes @zdnetaustralia Gotcha. Yes, I’m frustrated as all get by the politicisation of technology choices.

via TweetDeck in reply to DCoopes

@SuthShireCncl Thanks very much. My column has already been published, but this will be useful for another later. zdnet.com/article/yes-of…

via TweetDeck in reply to SuthShireCncl

@DCoopes @zdnetaustralia I’m confused. What are the two halves you’re referring to?

via TweetDeck in reply to DCoopes

@scott_thewspot The joins are inside the cabinet/pillar, so no difference from now. Indeed, many runs will have fewer joins now.

via TweetDeck in reply to scott_thewspot

Listening to the latest “The Arch Window” from @NicholasFryer, which contains rather a lot of urine and details of his dysfunctional family.

So I wrote this thing for @zdnetaustralia about Australia’s NBN and 1800km of copper and cud-munching cretins. zdnet.com/article/yes-of…

via TweetDeck

I don’t understand this either, but I’m not sure why I need or even want to know about it. twitter.com/ataraxite/stat…

via TweetDeck

@marshontap @NewtonMark @karinakeisler Thanks, Tim. I do realise the questions is more for NBN or the Minister, but my impression matches.

via TweetDeck in reply to marshontap

@disassociated Indeed. I blogged about similar numbers some years back, but can’t find the post just now.

via TweetDeck in reply to disassociated

@NewtonMark I think that’s all been locked in with Alcatel-Lucent, but @karinakeisler @marshontap may be able to confirm.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@HumansOfThis My pleasure. “Support” is a bit strong, through. I’m just mentioning what I like.

JazzTwemlow Typical - on both sides: Chris Kenny goes to Nauru and already there are more articles about the media than there are about refugees.

This is why we can’t have nice things. twitter.com/LaughingSquid/…

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark But it’s why I find writing about NBN so goddam frustrating. Normally I avoid it, but the copper thing this week is insane.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark I’m sure I made the point about NBN being a stick to hit the other side with years ago, but can’t find it right now.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@JohnBirmingham @australian A masthead having a viewpoint is one thing. We all have our biases or standpoints. Barking unreality is another.

via TweetDeck in reply to JohnBirmingham

There’s plenty of good people at @australian doing good journalism, reputations soiled because of the masthead’s arsehat propaganda arm.

via TweetDeck

Is @australian a 14yo girl? It’s just “jealous haters”? Talk about narcissism. twitter.com/jason_a_w/stat…

@JonoH This is the core of my frustration. The politicians bleat about transparency, but the models are kept secret.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH @zdnetaustralia Bear in mind I’m not a telco reporter, this is simply an op-ed about the current politics. Other people drill deeper.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH @zdnetaustralia We don’t have the last, as far as I know, just handwaving. This is my point about transparency.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

Me at @zdnetaustralia Wednesday: “Yes of course the NBN is buying copper, but so what?” zdnet.com/article/yes-of…

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite I think we all know the answer to this.

Thursday. No, you can tell this is the right bucket because it’s steaming. Thursday.
