My Latest Twitter Updates

  • @YagusMate @geeksrulz Yes, the professional abusers have made Twitter unbearable. I'm very disillusioned and contemplating a permanent exit. #
  • @geeksrulz @YagusMate For me its value is as a news source. But its domination by the media outlets and their staff is driving me away. #
  • @geeksrulz @YagusMate With a handful of exceptions, I don't want to read the tweets from people I read/listen/watch on the media. #
  • @geeksrulz @YagusMate But if you're into politics, news, current affairs, you can't avoid them. The celebrity culture is alive and thriving. #
  • @geeksrulz @YagusMate And I'm as guilty as anyone else in linking to media content and providing unpaid promotion for them. Am reassessing! #
  • March 5, 1983: Bob Hawke & the ALP were elected to office on this day 28 years ago, defeating Fraser & beginning 13 years in govt. #
  • There's some audio memories of the 1983 Hawke election here: http://auspol.info/cFRUeY #
  • @2FBS @eithniu I never block anyone but spammers. I filter the abusers and people I'm sick of. Perhaps that encourages them? #
  • @2FBS @eithniu It's not the turds! It's more a judgement on how I use my time. Impossible to compete with dominance of big names/orgs. #
  • @2FBS @eithniu My month away from most online activity after I was flooded has made me reconsider the value of much that I do online. #
  • @misseagle But where was he recently when we needed someone to part the waters? #
  • @2FBS @eithniu Suicide is such a dramatic over-statement. I have in mind a more gentle & partial euthanasia. #
  • Chuckling over shots of my old friend Foley in the approved ambassadorial position one step behind his minister: http://auspol.info/hMhoRt #
  • ABC TV News shows Benjeroop residents and farmers still flooded, a month after the waters hit. Some have boat-only access to their homes. #

  • @drng Yes, it was quite amusing but always with that edge to it. #
  • My desk and its accoutrements has been restored to its former condition. 12 powerpoints needed! #
  • And only one remote control still missing… #
  • @angrygoat I had 2×4 points put in the wall – only using one powerboard! #
  • @angrygoat That was what I faced – one electrician and some $ later… #
  • @Kimbo_Ramplin No, I have behaved highly responsibly. The electrician put the points in the wall & installed a new safety switch in the box! #
  • .@Kimbo_Ramplin And tomorrow I am going to treat myself to a digital radio, if I can find one with auxiliary input. #
  • @BiteTheDust At least 4-6 months before anyone from numbers 2-18 are back. Owners and tenants all moved out. The damage is quite amazing. #
  • @GeeForce77 The chair Wasserman holds is named after James Landon Knight, founder of the Knight Ridder newspaper company in the US. #
  • @GeeForce77 Knight Ridder has an interesting history that seems to mirror the problems faced by papers generally: http://auspol.info/gcLsgV #
  • China's National People's Congress opens in a show of stability and economic progress: http://auspol.info/ge2bqW #
  • Just watched last night's final 7.30 Report. A pity Heather Ewart couldn't continue hosting a program that isn't about the host… #

  • Oakes (sp) #
  • The video montage: #Insiders at its commercial TV trivialising best. #
  • Robb: This is not a scare campaign. The facts are scary. #Insiders #
  • Robb: It betrays a lack of conviction. That's why she has failed to establish any authority as PM. #Insiders #
