@smperris Indeed, it’s delightfully simple. And old. The failsafe track circuit for railways was invented in 1872. http://arseh.at/3ms

@TimLovitt I didn’t see the Telstra text-speak thingo, no. I usually don’t follow PR accounts on Twitter. I rely on email for that.

“Pre and post prandial peripitation” is a tad long, @obrijo, and sometimes it isn’t prandial. “Daily Dross” is a bit dull, @yeebok. Code?
