@joshlemon Thanks, though I didn’t intend to imply that about BoM. I guess I rushed that. Then again “military” just equates to patience.

@FakeDanTosello @zdnetaustralia I have yet to use the word “cybershambles”, but the day must be close.

@dobes The main advantage to this approach is that finger-pointing and apportioning blame will lead to more hilarious Senate inquiries.
