“Tony Ate… at Eight” is a tribute to Abbott’s love of things in his mouth, like his foot. 0800 AEST, repeated 2000 AEST. Lest we forget.

@indigoid Well that certainly looks interesting, but I might just have a quiet lie-down instead.

With respect to having had leftovers for breakfast, it would seem that I have chosen… poorly. 💩💩💩💩💩💩💩☣💀

@indigoid It’s improved as it’s gone along. About 90 mins to run now. There’s about 440GB to shift all up.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to indigoid

Time remaining 4 hours 37 minutes. 1. Who needs linear time? 2. I might as well slope off for a couple hours.

This was a purely informational tweet to indicate what I might be doing for the next few hours.

Just to be clear, my comment about the Time Machine restore wasn’t a request for technical support or your advice on any matters whatsoever.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Restoring a Time Machine backup of my to-be-repaired MacBook Pro onto the loaner machine. Time remaining 6 hours 36 minutes, it says. I see.

@MartinStoermer @upulie Bingo. And to explain the cryptic clue for @sylmobile, UK code name was PURPLE POSSUM.

@BundyB They’re bouyancy-neutral, remember.

@BundyB I think you just stand them on one end.

Mon plan, supplemental: Yes, it’s pretty much a work day for me. I’ll try to balance that out some time soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Mon plan: 1230 lunch and collect loaner computer, Rozelle; set up same; laundry; deal with geek-for-hire task list; finish podcast script.

@smidgey The magic age seems to be 13, according to a bunch of legal systems anyway.

“Give me a child until he is seven, and I will give you the man,” said (allegedly) St Francis Xavier.

via TweetDeck

Does the Justice Minister understand that the younger a person is, the more they’re susceptible, not less. The Jesuits certainly did.

via TweetDeck

“It is of great and ongoing concern that people so young remain susceptible,” ‘cos kids have never been susceptible to influence before.

via TweetDeck

I’ve had to put that PDF on my own website because the minister’s office doesn’t seem to be able to achieve that sort of efficiency.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

The Justice Minister has weighed in on the “Teen Anzac Day terror plot”. It’s “truly chilling and disturbing”. stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl… (PDF)

@wobster If you have tired of eel attacks, you have tired of life.

@NicholasFryer Sounds like much of my personal life.

via TweetDeck in reply to NicholasFryer

@NewtonMark I have tweeted a bunch of tweets on this very topic earlier, and will be saying things in a certain podcast tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NicholasFryer Definitely not recording until tomorrow , for what it’s worth. I have some things to organise today.

via TweetDeck

@jeffsonstein I can’t speak to that. I’ve never been to NZ. But the roundel of the RNZAF does feature a flightless bird.

Hey @LanguageLog, here’s a lovely eggcorn for you, though perhaps you’ve seen it before. twitter.com/axmcc/status/7…

via TweetDeck

@riskybusiness @newscomauHQ @abcnews @nswpolice @smidgey Yep. Hey if things looked bad, act. Cool. Anyway, I’ll mutter more in the podcast.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@nswelectric @mikebairdMP That, in my view, is a bizarre reading of events, and a complete misunderstanding of why “alleged” is used.

via TweetDeck in reply to nswelectric

@smidgey Indeed. “Police state” is bandied about a bit too easily. If this really were a police state, they’d have sent The Van long ago.

via TweetDeck in reply to smidgey

I agree. @newscomauHQ is much better than @abcnews on this. @nswpolice did discuss it further. Ping @riskybusiness twitter.com/smidgey/status…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@smidgey I’m drafting my script later today, plan to record and post the podcast tomorrow.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to smidgey

@smidgey That’s a bit tough to answer in a tweet. I’ll discuss it in my next podcast though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to smidgey

It’s silly wording, in my view, because they’re already alleging that very thing. But it’s just a copy-paste formula.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

No, don’t infer anything from that. It’s standard wording foreshadowing something they intend to argue in court… twitter.com/durasellbunnie…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

This is a curious sequence of concepts, although that may just be a side-effect of how the story is ordered. pic.twitter.com/JFWVyMSOhd

@riskybusiness There’s a lot of huh every day (most not @nswpolice). I’ve just got time to whinge today.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

Anyway that’s enough whinging for now. I’ll have a coffee. And then do some more whinging.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

… and I noted that the story doesn’t have anything about potential harm and likelihood of success of this “plot”.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Oh, here’s the ‘Anzac Day terror plot’ story. My first tweet linking to it didn’t appear… ab.co/1YOS5SN pic.twitter.com/0jqZIwHmW9

Jesus Christ, people, it’s a toll on a motorway, not a nuclear winter. twitter.com/nowestconnex/s…

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@riskybusiness @nswpolice Yes, we are certainly safer than ever before in human history. Genuinely, well done.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness @nswpolice Indeed. And I’m willing to accept ALL of this if the argument is supported. I’d just like it to be.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness @nswpolice I was thinking exactly that as I typed that tweet. Yeah, rumours can be bad.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness @nswpolice I’m not angry-shouty, “I’m just asking questions”. Yeah that’s corny.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

@riskybusiness @nswpolice Or, maybe get all that organised before holding a press conference? After all, the message was don’t be deterred.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to riskybusiness

Maybe this kid had a solid plan that could have caused significant harm, but there’s nothing in the news stories to support the claim.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Police officers have to justify why a gun was drawn every time it happens, so surely this more serious claim needs serious justification?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

It’s all too easy wave the magic terrorism wand to turn on the special powers, and it’s fair to ask whether it was justified.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

For the hard of thinking, note that so far I’m not accusing @nswpolice of anything other than being shit at explaining themselves.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

We deserve a better explanation from police for arresting 16yos than “Oh it was terrorism”. Why was it terrorism not just a dickhead kid?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I’m perfectly willing to be convinced, but I’m not going to accept a bunch of emotive words supported by neither facts not reasoning.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Why is the kid’s age a “measure of the ongoing task”? Wouldn’t kids easier to detect than trained professionals?
