Awesome. Optus’ satellite phone support team only works business hours, Australian time. Can’t activate the SIM until tomorrow.

“Service not provisioned”, it says.

Thuraya SO-2510 satellite phone UX fail: I’m having to use the manual to find the ON/OFF button.

@stinginthetail Ah, but a sanitised “professional” image that carves off your real identity is something I rail against! The jokes go back!

@SnarkyPlatypus I don’t think I can possibly explain the antlers. Maybe these photos can. http://tr.im/pqx2

@Pollytics Ahem! I assure you I was wearing pants when that photo was taken in the front bar of the Granville Hotel. Classy, eh?

I should put the bit about cows back in then.

@SnarkyPlatypus @stinginthetail Overly-sanitised? Well, the aim IS to give people stuff to copy and paste int conference programs. Hmmm.

I’ve just re-written my “About Stilgherrian” blurb based on a recent media-release version. http://tr.im/pqtU Whaddyareckon?

@yin_yin Start-up beeps depend on the motherboard, alas. Google for “POST error sound [motherboard model]”.

@JohnBirmingham Yes, Question Time as symbolic theatre. But, maybe Joe Hockey as a Gladiator is the way to go? Rudd as elvish archer?

@Mark_Chenery Another laptop from Lenovo? Hurrah! Satellite phone from Internode/Optus and camera phones from Telstra here.

@viveka No, THIS is @mpesce’s jumper. http://tr.im/ppZX And doesn’t he look fabulous?

@crushtor Oh yes, true, Labor and the Libs would indeed tweet Dorothy Dix questions to fill time. Still, it might get them onto Twitter.

RT @jmacmullin: I’d like to see ‘Twiiter’ meet ‘qanda’ meet ‘Question Time’. We should be able to tweet our questions and have them put. :-)

via Twitter Web Client

[smirks] I do detect a certain cynicism about Question Time in your responses. ;) But yes, I feel myself getting more stupid just watching!

via Twitter Web Client

Question Time. Um, how does a bunch of blokes in suits (and a few women) shouting at each other enhance democracy, exactly?

via Twitter Web Client

RT @Colgo: In cab. Eternal Flame by the Bangles comes on radio. Cabbie turns it up, starts singing along. [Jealous, @SnarkyPlatypus?]

@BecReedman The thing about me in http://tr.im/ppIs (scroll down) is a bit more up to date than “About Stilgherrian” http://tr.im/ppIy

@BecReedman To earn money, it’s a mix of freelance writing and media production, geek-for-hire and consulting about “Internet stuff”.

via Twitter Web Client

@BecReedman What do I DO? You mean, as to earn money? Or how I fill my time generally?

Me in Crikey today: “Government 2.0 Taskforce: first a logo design contest” http://tr.im/ppFD

@marclehmann Say hi to @shermozle. He’s looking for an accounting system and accountant. I reckon you’d know Saasu-friendly accountants. ;)

via Twitter Web Client

RT @stephenconroy: @TurnbullMalcolm You haven’t Tweeted since June 18th. Can we email you instead?

via Twitter Web Client

Crikey story filed! “Story”, I said, not “yarn”. Ahem.

via Twitter Web Client

RT @rbbrown: @stilgherrian Ahaha, you said “yarn”. ONE OF US! ONE OF US! [I can claim I was just being polite and using journo-speak. No?]

via Twitter Web Client

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, I do note that two of the mid-week days are both full of travel too. But… later. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Emerges. Significantly later than the plan called for. And yet I don’t feel rested, because the sleep was so broken. Botheration.

via Twitter Web Client

More information to absorb, but it’ll happen while I sleep. [exit]

@scotartt No, I hadn’t seen “Total Eclipse of the Heart: Literal Video Version”. I thank you. http://tr.im/prSi So will @SnarkyPlatypus.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to scotartt

@rvowles I bet you say that to all the boys. If I ask nicely, will you say it again?

via Twitter Web Client in reply to rvowles

OMFGWTFBBGQ! Someone just put TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE HEART on the jukebox! Someone tell @SnarkyPlatypus!

@caronne What is “it”? The phone? It’s on my desk? Tanzania? In Africa. I think.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to caronne

@GreenJ Then I shan’t tell you to remove the category “paywall” from the story and hit “Update Post”. ;)

via Twitter Web Client in reply to GreenJ

Shall I tell @GreenJ that I think I know the answer to his question?

via Twitter Web Client

@neg2led Thank you. :) Right now I’m stressed and exhausted, but it’ll be fine once I’m on the plane.

via Twitter Web Client in reply to sirneggles

@neg2led Why the satellite phone? Project TOTO! http://tr.im/pqKQ It’ll be needed in remote Tanzania.
