If you support the right for two people to get married regardless of gender, then please respectfully and politely contact your local federal member and let them know.
Those who oppose this have already started up their very effective networks, and we will need to work very hard to counter it.
If you're not sure who your local MP or Senators are, I recommend you use http://www.openaustralia.org.au/ to find out. Just punch in your post code and it will let you know, as well as give you a run down of their voting history.
Do it, DO IT NOW!

So Bill Shorten has announced that he and the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Tanya Plibersec will be putting a bill to the house to allow Same Sex Marriage.
Honestly I'm torn.
The cynical part of me thinks the whole thing is an exercise in futility. Unless the Coalition allows a free vote amongst its members the bill is doomed to die in the House of Reps. If I was going to be really cynical I'd think this was an attempt to take the wind out of the sails of the greens who were proposing a similar bill to start in the Senate.
On the other hand, this is probably the first sign I've seen of Shorten actually stepping forward on an issue that hasn't been focus grouped to death. SSM doesn't have universal support within the Labor party (hi Joe deBruyn you reactionary old fart), and by putting his name directly on the bill Shorten is showing some leadership at last.
If you support Same Sex marriage, or as it's known in other parts of the world, Marriage, I'd urge you to let your local MP know how you feel. Do it politely, do it succinctly but make sure you do it.

Good news everybody!
This week I've started pulling everything together to bring both For Science! and Purser Explores The World back to the internet airwaves :)
I won't reveal what the return episode of Purser Explores The World is going to be about, but suffice to say it's going to continue the same explorations and interview style that previous episodes had.
For Science! of course is going to be the return of Mel, Mags and I doing our thing about science news and getting our rant on (well Mags and Mel more than me but anyway). I'm also going to be looking at either expanding the show to include a new segment or create a smaller podcast that will be talking to researchers around the country, not more than say 15 or 20 minutes long in which we find out a bit more about the work the researcher is doing, how they got started in science and so on.
I have some other thoughts about Angry Beanie and its direction, but they are for another blog post I think.Blog Catagories: angry beanie
Update: It turns out the DA was trolling. We all now know that DrupalCon North America 2017 will be in New Orleans. I've kept this post up as I believe the information about handling unpublished nodes is relevant. I have also learned that m4032404 is enabled by default in govCMS.
When a user doesn't have access to content in Drupal a 403 forbidden response is returned. This is the case out of the box for unpublished content. The problem with this is that sensitive information may be contained in the URL. A great example of this the DrupalCon site.
The way to avoid this is to use the m4032404 module which changes a 403 response to a 404. This simple module prevents your site leaking information via URLs.AttachmentSize DrupalCon-Philadephia.png139.21 KB
