Sweaty. Checked in. Relaxing. Pondering.

OH, Chinese student: “He’s just the funniest white guy. He doesn’t mean to be funny but he’s so lame he just ends up being funny.”

RT @jonrussell lol train station stops in Thailand = bring on the crazy-assed hawkers [And it’s glorious!]

via TweetDeck

@nphair Hah! Come Sunday week every crackpot with An Idea for our trains will be queueing on Macquarie St!

Gawd. Read about these dodgy stoner arms dealers from Miami instead. http://arseh.at/52a

Cars. Not cats. Bloody hell. Don’t give amphetamines to cats. They’re too smug as it is.

via TweetDeck

Decided: “Patch Monday” will be a panel chat on recent events. But, security stuffs? Or Twitter and social media stuffs?

via TweetDeck

Not selling beer because some people might have too much is like not selling cats because some people might speed. Lazy policy-making.

via TweetDeck

OH: “I hate that little guy. They call him ‘Virus’. I don’t know why. But I hate him.”

via TweetDeck

Yes, @darrenpauli, beer too. Just like happened when our train stopped at a junction in northern Bangkok. Ice cold beers.

via TweetDeck

Dear CityRail, on a 2-hour train journey, why not allow vendors to join the train to sell snacks? Or would you want to “control” it all?

via TweetDeck

Oh God! There’s someone on this train who looks like a 14yo version of @nanopunk. She totally pwns the lower deck, from where I can see.

via TweetDeck

I’ve seen the RSA hack story but haven’t really digested it, @404ed. Maybe it’s time for a “state of security” panel chat.

via TweetDeck

Given that it’s 1530 and I haven’t decided what I’ll do for “Patch Monday”, I’ll be clever and do something highly topical on the weekend.

via TweetDeck

Yet another dodgy report on the extent of copyright “piracy” dismantled, this time by @beneltham http://arseh.at/528

via TweetDeck

Oh, my thingo about sock puppets is not a new story, as @BearnardKeane wrote earlier today. http://arseh.at/527

via TweetDeck

The train has significantly more passengers than I was expecting. The Japanese tourists, all old women, wear identical orange rain hats.

via TweetDeck

Indeed, @404ed, sock puppets for propaganda are nothing new. The new thing here appears to be 20 fakes under control of one operator.

via TweetDeck

Mobile. Details as previously advised. I assume you are paying attention. Why, I don’t know. You’re weird.

via TweetDeck

US military awards contract to automate sock-puppeting… sorry… an “online persona management service”. http://arseh.at/523

via TweetDeck

10 mins until a cab arrives to take me to Wentworth Falls village for a snack, then the train to Sydney for the weekend.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin After generator run inverter showed 84V in but dripped in minutes to 62V. Solar delivering 0.2kW in drizzle.

via TweetDeck

Maybe I’ll just announce that I won’t finish things by deadline too. It clearly makes things easier. For me.

via TweetDeck

Telstra won’t complete NBN deal by 1 July deadline for shareholder vote. http://arseh.at/51z

via TweetDeck

Hah! ABC’s subject page at http://www.abc.net.au/su… doesn’t include “elections”.

via TweetDeck

@peeyooshchandra I’ll flesh out my objections to gamification elsewhere, as they differ from @samdoust’s in places. Not for today though.

via TweetDeck in reply to peeyooshchandra

Here’s gamification proponent Rajat Paharia of @Bunchball speaking at Digital Directions 2011. http://arseh.at/51i

via TweetDeck

“Why ‘Gamification’ is as stupid as it sounds”, says ABC’s @samdoust. Which saves me saying it. http://arseh.at/51g

via TweetDeck

@ForsakenDAemon I’ll admit I haven’t even looked at the Pwn2Own stuff yet. There. I’ve said it.

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

RT @RatbagsDotCom: Debullshitting SEO is a PhD length project. There’s so much material there. [True, dat.]

via TweetDeck

@acaderama The “What can they do?” is easy, as long as they don’t want a Grand Plan. Same as now: Ad hoc growth where it’s needed.

via TweetDeck in reply to acaderama

I appreciate all these suggestions for “Patch Monday” topics. I’ll let them simmer over the next two hours. Feel free to suggest more.

via TweetDeck

… from a political viewpoint anything they might say now is irrelevant by 2013, @acaderama. Though @TurnbullMalcolm has a standing invite.

via TweetDeck

The Coalition’s broadband plans, such as they are, have been covered lots in @phildobbie’s “Twisted Wire” podcast, @acaderama … but …

via TweetDeck

SEO is a great topic, @dianehmartin, I haven’t covered it. De-bullshitting all that needs more prep, tho, so definitely a later episode.

via TweetDeck

Pwn2Own as a topic, eh @ForsakenDAemon? ZDnet has lots, linked off @darrenpauli’s story http://arseh.at/51b That’s not a “no”, though.

via TweetDeck

The dodgy piracy reports and iiNet’s anti-piracy body plans are interesting, yes @rorybaust, tho I have done a lot on copyright of late.

via TweetDeck

It seems Dilbert “solved” the parental lock issue 15 years ago. http://arseh.at/518 HT @johnthelutheran

via TweetDeck

I’m still pondering what to cover in “Patch Monday”. Any IT- or internet-related news stories you’d like more background on?

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Client project costing; organise “Patch Monday” podcast, and maybe record bits; tidy cottage; train to Sydney; evening TBA.

via TweetDeck

Indeed, @chading_aus, but “Wireless tycoon talks down competitors to wireless” ain’t much of a headline, eh?

via TweetDeck

RT @adam_turner: Bypassing TV’s parental lock is child’s play http://bit.ly/fuMIZd [Is anyone surprised by this? Anyone?]

via TweetDeck

One to bookmark, watch tonight: Adam Curtis’ doco “A is for Atom” on early nuclear power industry. http://arseh.at/516

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Oh I thought I spotted the power spike. Want a generator run before I head down to Sydney this afternoon?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Apparently it’s the inaugural National Day of Action Against Bullying and Violence, “focus on bystander behaviour”. http://arseh.at/515

via TweetDeck

@andrew_hedge Perhaps, but ‘Well, he would say that, wouldn’t he?’ is to attack the messenger not the message.

Peering into the narrow tube that leads to Friday, and wondering at its smooth interior.
