@zzap There’s a reason I’m handling the whole Sydney Airport issue in public. ;) It’s a test of their style of response as much as anything.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@zzap I don’t think there’d be a flaw. No prior knowledge of this particular nuisance. A bit like later discovering toxic outfall?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@paulwallbank Oh no, the dodgy backups were a client’s. I was working on them remotely.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to paulwallbank

@Alegrya There are more heavies on 16R than 16L, and the aircraft are lower. There may also be ECM in operation [rumour].

via Twitter Web Client in reply to Alegrya

@zzap Actually, the neighbour / airport is causing a “nuisance”, a common law tort. IANAL, but I reckon a case can be made.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@zzap Ahem. I’m NOT bitching about the noise in the post, but electromagnetic interference. But, speaking of the noise… http://is.gd/qkw

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@fictillius A former RAAF intel officer has briefed me on the likely causes of the electromagnetic interference. They’d better not bluff. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to fictillius

@trib Keep me informed of Monday night plans. @ShanrkyPlatypus and I have gym, but may be around afterwards.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to trib

@zzap The other point of the post is that there’s been an increase in traffic, i.e. abnormal, more interference in working hours.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to zzap

@zzap 1. We didn’t buy the house. 2. Yes, we were aware of the airport. Der. 3. We didn’t conduct radio interference tests first. Do you?

@SnarkyPlatypus Exactly. We should also remove schools and kindergartens from street directories in case pedophiles find them too.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus You could do a Google Maps mashup of those kids’ tracking collars to provide a service to pedophiles. [nods]
