Thank you @jasonlangenauer for finding tonight’s truly fucked-up website and concept. http://arseh.at/1wv

Hard-coded bias in Google’s “algorithmic” search results! The bastards! http://arseh.at/1wu

@CastleJames Amused to be asked “father’s date of birth”. How the fuck should I know? He’s been dead for decades.

via TweetDeck in reply to CastleJames

If I’ve been rude to you in the last 2 hours, it’s stress over this visa application. I will now return to being rude for the usual reasons.

via TweetDeck

@kristinmoore2 Yes, this is very much going to work as a journalist. http://arseh.at/1ht

@kristinmoore2 I now have to request “expedited” processing.

via TweetDeck in reply to kristinmoore2

@kristinmoore2 There shouldn’t be any reason for the visa to be declined, but the interview timing means it’s a bit tight. We shall see.

via TweetDeck in reply to kristinmoore2

Lots of people seem to be interested, so here the US Category I visa and its rules. http://arseh.at/1wq

via TweetDeck

@kristinmoore2 For the US Category I visa, it’s not how you’re paid but whether you’re “doing media”. Lying about your intent gets you jail.

via TweetDeck in reply to kristinmoore2

Possibly not quite as fuck. I will find out tomorrow. Probably.

via TweetDeck

@GumbyRoffo To repeat, a “representative of the foreign media” is not eligible for the US visa waiver program.

via TweetDeck in reply to GumbyRoffo

This process would be easier if the US Consulate’s web server didn’t keep throwing cluster authentication errors.

“Are you a member or representative of a terrorist organization?”

via TweetDeck

@purserj No, I cannot use ESTA. I am a “representative of the foreign media”.

via TweetDeck in reply to purserj

Gawd, all this visa paperwork so I can fly to the US and be sexually assaulted. There must be a cheaper option.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus No, the 20% isn’t about the flouncing but about that other question.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@peterjblack Could you call your ask-me Tumblr “Freedom to Dixer”? As in Dorothy?

I wonder if anyone else recognises @ApostrophePong’s new avatar…

via TweetDeck

No, not on the 702 stream, @EnsignR. “Statewide” is all ABC Local Radio stations in NSW except Sydney, Newcastle, Wollongong.

via TweetDeck

@jmacmullin I think I’ll be lucky enough to avoid having to read the NBN business plan for a few days yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to jmacmullin

I’m 30 mins I’ll be talking on ABC Radio Statewide NSW talking newsworthy malware and Facebook death notices. No stream, alas.

via TweetDeck

Home. Explanation may or may not come later.

via TweetDeck

These half-arsed mustaches don’t help. Is there some way to pay people to shave them off?

via TweetDeck

The RI on platform 19 is utterly inadequate.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Central station; Stanmore station; home; 1745 chat on ABC Radio about something.

via TweetDeck

I have the Document.

via TweetDeck

Gosh you really don’t like the hipsters, do you.

via TweetDeck

I can stab this hipster waiting for a cab, right?

via TweetDeck

@smperris Is that a challenge? You reckon I should try to get into your office?

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

I am loose in the Sydney CBD. Phear!

This is an off-record briefing. I shall not tweet.

@Yin_Izanami Mind you, I think I would fulfill the role of intergalactic diva quite well. In the right circumstances.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

From 1330 I will be in a DFAT briefing on ACTA. http://arseh.at/19q I may or may not tweet stuff, depending on the format.

via TweetDeck

@Yin_Izanami I think I may have to go back to choosing my own avatars after this unholy occurrence.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

In @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast, “Conroy, ‘poo or get off the pot’: Oakeshott” http://arseh.at/1wf

via TweetDeck

@Yin_Izanami You are right, Sir, it does appear that way. I am told that it is “appropriate”. I do not know why that would be.

via TweetDeck in reply to yinettesys

RT @rossdawson: Sometimes the computer knows best. [So… Senator Conroy IS rootable, and I just don’t know it? Egad!]

via TweetDeck

Android wanted to auto-correct “ropeable” to “rootable”. Erm, no thanks.

via TweetDeck

So the Senate has gagged Sen Conroy? He’ll be ropeable. There’s a bad joke in there somewhere.

via TweetDeck

@theburgerman Oh I haven’t seen the Conroy / Joyce video. I faved it just as a reminder to self for later, when on non-mobile bandwidth.

via TweetDeck

Leaving vowels out of product names isn’t clever you know. Maybe it was amusing once. Maybe. But not now.

via TweetDeck

I just forgot to do both of the things I planned to do before getting on the train. I am so awesome.

RT @yewenyi If the tea party happened today, would it be branded as an act of terrorism? [I plum reckon it would be.]

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Enmore Rd; King St errands; Newtown station; Wynyard station; loitering; 1330 Angel Place for DFAT Briefing.

No it’s OK @jasonlangenauer I’m allowed to read treaties. I went to a private school.

via TweetDeck

Reading and attempting to understand international treaties is not an enjoyable experience.

@jeffsonstein I’ve been told before that diversionary attacks are a regular part of the infosec world. Wouldn’t be surprised.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

It is important to have an understanding of your target market. http://arseh.at/1w0

via TweetDeck

Thanks @Asher_Wolf now I just have to decide which infosec expert(s) I should talk to about that internet traffic hijacking.

@SnarkyPlatypus Le Google est un échec. Il ne comprend pas le genre des noms. En anglais, «But I like it.»

RT @NewtonMark: If I win a swabbing without a lottery ticket, one hesitates to imagine what I’d win in a jackpot. [It’d need rubber gloves.]

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark: And of course I got “random” explosives swabbing for the sixth time in a row. [Buy a lottery ticket now!]
