@SylviaDiscount “Saint Steve of the Crocodile”? Traditionally pictures like St Sebastian, pierced by stingrays rather than arrows?

Sitting in the UTS foyer, Broadway, awaiting the phone call which heralds today’s first recording, for “A Series of Tubes”. Hi, @R_Chirgwin!

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Yes, I can see buying a $85k statue of Steve Irwin holding a crocodile like a sex toy as a high priority for most.

@CathyJ I have now moved beyond the tapeworm. [See! Who said Twitter wasn’t useful!]

Mobile. Enmore Rd / King St / Broadway / UTS / Radio 2SER / somewhere quiet to finish a Crikey piece before 1200.

via Twitter Web Client

@mpesce But EVERY edition of “Stilgherrian Live” is “special”. :) However I’ll be doing a commentary and Q&A on RuddN#nbn

@SnarkyPlatypus “Libres et équitables” contient une de mes préférées des mots!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Thu plan: 0930 podcast recording; 1000 radio 2SER recording; write for Crikey?; lunch; webby bits; 1500 gym; 2130 “Stilgherrian Live”.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je pense qu’aujourd’hui sera un autre jour ridicule. Comment est tout dans La République de l’Ornithorynque?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@firstdogonmoon The really sad thing is that I remember the answer to “Where’s my Mars Bar?” [thwack!]

Emerges. Like the happiest tapeworm in the world. Even happier, maybe.

Home. Exhausted. Brain reeling with SEKRITS. Weekend now please. [exit]

via Twitter Web Client

@jdub Oh it shits me that people ask stuff which would be answered by just reading the news.

via Twitter Web Client

BTW, I’m not interacting much tonight ‘cos my brain is full of the SEKRIT project. I may be able to reveal something tomorrow.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @bigjsl: DBCDE docs can be found here http://bit.ly/BCNf4 for those that wish to have a rational conversation.

via Twitter Web Client

I wonder how many of the armchair-expert sysadmins discussing have bothered downloading the docs from the DBCDE website?

via Twitter Web Client

@firstdogonmoon You left a word out. “My dishwasher is my ONLY friend.”

via Twitter Web Client in reply to firstdogonmoon

@Zenobeach I live under a runway approach. I’m very conscious of the limitations of wireless. Each tech for its own use. :)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rugbybirthdays

RT @paininthenet: @stilgherrian mate you are the “Bert Newton” of Aussie social media! Respect! [Oh whacko.]

via Twitter Web Client

@Zenobeach I think you’re mistaken The isn’t just a “home Internet connection”, and remote surgery is a real research area.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rugbybirthdays

And that quote came from New Matilda: “Just So We’re All Clear On Twitter” http://is.gd/rmzx

via Twitter Web Client

@sophblack OK, I just found that description of me as a “chuckling man with a crew cut, and a big round face”. Fuck. LOL. http://is.gd/rmzx

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sophblack

@Zenobeach It doesn’t have to be either/or. Wireless has its uses, but it’s inherently less reliable.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rugbybirthdays

@Zenobeach If a surgeon is operating a remote robot with a scalpel in my chest, does not want a wireless link, kthxbai.

@SilkCharm SYD to ADL? Yass, Wagga, Narrandera, Hay, Balranald, Miralie, Manangastang, Ouyen, aim for Lamaroo and Tailem Bend.

via Twitter Web Client

Dear Whiney Fagboi at next table, your clichéd whiney fagboi voice is starting to shit me. Also, your friend’s buttcrack need not be seen.

via Twitter Web Client

Is Rudd’s NBN similar, politically, to Billy Hughes’ wireless telegraph link to London? http://is.gd/ra3l Hat-tip @crikey_news.

via Twitter Web Client

@VenessaHunt @bennglazier @JoelyRighteous I may have a beer. Just the one. Much like this Guinness which just, um, appeared officer.

via Twitter Web Client

I have escaped the North Shore, dignity intact. And gym has been postponed. So what now?

via Twitter Web Client

@FiBendall Sssh! It’s a SEKRIT meeting! No-one knows I’m here. Anyway, SEKRIT meeting is over now. Normality resumes.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to FiBendall

OK, going dark for my SEKRIT meeting in North Sydney. People have such excellent teeth over here! Baxoon.

@michaelmeloni I suppose there IS a challenge. All those RJ-11 sockets clogged up with lube… messy!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to michaelmeloni

Folks who’ve never wired up anything further than their pr0nz stash to the TV suddenly reckon they know all about infrastructure.

via Twitter Web Client

The best part of the NBN is that all the armchair network engineers who infest Whirlpool now have an excuse to bore ALL of their “friends”.

via Twitter Web Client

I think tomorrow night’s “Stilgherrian Live” will have to be a backgrounder and Q&A about the National Broadband Netwo#nbn

via Twitter Web Client

@edave Why is “only” 100Mb? ‘Cos you have to engineer a network to a spec. But yes, you can upgrade later without laying more fibre.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to edave

@Nickhodge Today’s Crikey video http://tinyurl.com/ck49gl WAS for my show tomorrow night. And still may be. It’s FULL OF WIN!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

@martinbarry @mrsnickhodge So the Opposition’s maths is not only late, but wrong. Says it all, really. ;) (OK, mine was shit too.)

via Twitter Web Client

Mobile. Enmore Rd / Newtown Station / North Sydney station / 1600 SEKRIT meeting / brain explodes. Attention limited.

via Twitter Web Client

ROFL! Opposition “discovers” 500,000 Aust’ns won’t get NBN. Um, “90% of Aust’ns” = 10% of 21.5M miss out. You only got this today?

via Twitter Web Client

Even more me in “Crikey Clarifier: National Broadband Network, Part 2” http://bit.ly/DqKu [free to read]

via Twitter Web Client

More me in Crikey today (I know): “NBN: Pricey, but it’s building for the long term” http://bit.ly/FuUe [Paywalled, but 3-week free trial]

via Twitter Web Client

RT @firstdogonmoon: Existentialism and misogynist poultry. Today’s First Dog On The Moon [cartoon] is free on Crikey. http://bit.ly/31smWF

@mr_billiam Maybe I should publish MOAR SEKRITTER as a special recipe for spaghetti marinara.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mr_billiam

@chris23 NBN=faster, filter=slower over-simplifies things, I think. It’s not just about moving a single “speed” point along a 1-D scale.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to chris23

@mpesce No, my SEKRIT meeting isn’t with @kcarruthers, but EVEN MOAR SEKRITTER!

via Twitter Web Client in reply to mpesce

Wed plan: Write for Crikey; lunch somewhere, late; 1600 SEKRIT meeting North Sydney; gym/dinneq with @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Cloudhopper

@ozdj So that’s all broadband is for you? “High speed porn”? You should try using some of the other bits of the Internet! ;)
