Finally, it’s time to talk about submarines. The spring series of The 9pm Edict continues with a conversation about what submarines in the 21st century can and can’t do with defence analyst and illustrator H I Sutton of Covert Shores.Continue reading “The 9pm Underwater Doomsday Conversation with H I Sutton”
With me being distracted by thoughts of nuclear submarines, my week of Monday 20 to Sunday 26 September 2021 wasn’t as productive as I’d hoped — but then it was the off week of my fortnightly cycle. That said, there was plenty of birdlife in the sunny weather.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 591: Spring, birdlife, and a nuclear distraction”
This week of Monday 27 January to Sunday 2 February 2020 seems to have been my actual start of the year. I got some writing done. I got a three-hour podcast done. And I didn’t die in the heat when I went for a quiet drink.Continue reading “Weekly Wrap 505: Finally, productivity begins for 2020”
North Korea launched yet another ballistic missile in the general direction of the ocean. So stick a nuke on it, and we’re fucked. Well, Japan is fucked. Or the oceans is fucked. Whatever.
There’s also stories from my recent travels, cybersecurity, spooks, terrorists, and something from the Dough Anthony All Stars. And of course Nicholas Fryer with a look through The Arch Window.

This episode of The 9pm Edict heads into a eucalypt forest in search of the internet, and encounters a dog.
You’ll hear about the National Broadband Network’s fibre-to-the-node trial, Russell Brand, Bertrand Russell, the 20th anniversary of a sarin nerve gas attack in Japan, the 25th birthday of the internet in Australia, the 60th birthday of nuclear power stations, Hillary Clinton and the mangoes, Google co-funder Larry Page’s threat to kill 100,000 people, and the arsehattery of Village Roadshow co-CEO Graham Burke.

Stilgherrian’s links for 30 September 2009 through 13 October 2009, gathered automatically but then left to languish for two weeks before publication.

Maybe I should just stick these Delicious-generated links in a sidebar? Or do you like having them in the main stream and RSS feed?
