Optus removes Arabic ads from shopping centre after alleged threat to staff

Another complainant said migrants should learn English.

“This is Australia not islam,” the message read. “If these people wish to come to Australia, they should feel obligated to learn English if they are serious about becoming part of the Australian society.”

But Optus was quick to respond.

“Thanks for your feedback. Australia is a country while Islam is a religion,” Dan wrote on behalf of Optus. “The language used on the sign was Arabic, which is also spoken by a number of non-Muslim countries.”

That is amongst the dumbest things I’ve read on the Internet today, the original dumbass comment implying that islam [sic] is a country, not the Optus reply.

How We Stop ISIS – Waleed Aly

It’s Time For An eAustralia Card

Australian e-government is a long way behind many other developed nations. Our national leadership has utterly failed to comprehend why e-government should have been a national priority decades ago, and continues to offer little in the way of policy direction.

But I’ve just moved my blog again, this time it’s from to a self-hosted WordPress install. Basically don’t let you use certain embed codes, and those embed codes are something that I really want to be able to use…so here we are again, setting up another website.

Test posting a Theta m15 360 photo…


I’ve moved across to a self-hosted WordPress installation, and with that I can finally embed the images I’ve shot with my Theta m15 360 camera. To view the image correctly you’ll either need to be using Chrome or to have flash installed, I’m still looking for another solution so that flash won’t be required…but for now, at least it’s working.
