I don’t like where this is heading.

Learning interesting facts. Quite interesting facts. I shall share them at some point, but not today.

Helping the television industry. Again.

RT @RealNickHodge: And the NZ cover band “Mashing Lamb Shanks” [I approve of this tweet.]

via TweetDeck

Today’s idea for a band name: A trio called “Lamb, Skanks and Mash”.

Mon Dieu, je suis tellement fatigué!

Catching up on four days of @firstdogonmoon all at once. Feeling a bit giddy.

Ah, it appears that this “fastidious cunt” was also Governor-General of Australia at the time. As a hobby, I guess.

And here’s a picture. Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester from 30 January 1945 - 11 March 1947. http://arseh.at/74a

OH: “In 1946 we had a dinner for the Duke of Gloucester at the Australia Club. He was the most fastidious cunt I’ve ever met.” Win.

RT @AndySHastings: That question did have the smell of a well baited hook about it. [Yep. There’s a standby blog post sorted.]

Gawd. Pavlov would have a field day with you lot.

What’s “NBN”?

@ApostrophePong Oh a tech consultant job sounds too much like actual work. I’ll stay with journalism, I think.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@ApostrophePong Well indeed. But I don’t think anyone will pay me to go to Bangkok. Unless I can tour some tech factory towards Rayong.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

Riots in Bangkok again, @ApostrophePong? Now I want to be there this time!

RT @johnemcintyre: More than 211,000 are signed up for the Post Rapture Looting event on Facebook. [Must. Prevent. Rapture.]

You’re right, @vealmince.The right and proper follow-on to “You annoy the shit out of me” is “May I buy more of your products?”

via TweetDeck

Dear Corporation, it’s already fucked that I have to wait on the phone. It’s more fucked that you play ads at me. I’m already a customer.

via TweetDeck

@Steve_Lockstep Oh yes, I will be re-examining encryption on all my devices right about now.

via TweetDeck in reply to Steve_Lockstep

Current task: Trawl thru the backlog of email and other messages and arrange my priorities for the next few days. I haven’t forgotten you.

via TweetDeck

Sat down with a cold cider. Yay.

via TweetDeck

@cmlh Thanks. I’m not sure whether I’ll be following the story, was only booked by ZDNet for the conference, but will touch base if I stay.

via TweetDeck in reply to cmlh

Touchdown SYD, baggage wait in progress.

Thu plan: 0855 JQnnn OOL-SYD; find accommodation; sort client-developer drama; writing writing writing; deal with comms backlog; sleep.

@lexiphanic @Taezar Thanks. Cab driver says 30 mins too. We.are en route.

via TweetDeck in reply to lexiphanic

How long in a cab from Broadbeach to OOL?

Dear Conferences, I DO NOT NEED OR WANT A BACKPACK. I bring my own, for laptop and equipment. I have a pen. Please stop this insane waste!

via TweetDeck

Taking all the printed crap from the backpack and throwing it out, unread. Discarding the backpack. PR people please take note.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… My regular hidey-holes look heavily booked, rates are not so good. I’ll figure it out once I get to Sydney.

via TweetDeck

@KristenObaid Nothing particularly new here IMO, nor to do with journalism as such. Digital devices can be seized if they contain evidence.

via TweetDeck in reply to KristenObaid

Pondering where to sleep tonight.

via TweetDeck

@KristenObaid Evidence must be kept all the way through any criminal trial and, if anyone is found guilty, until appeals period expires.

via TweetDeck in reply to KristenObaid

@KristenObaid My understanding is that emails originally piqued interest, but I’d call that rumour. @bengrubb won’t see his iPad for months.

via TweetDeck in reply to KristenObaid

@joshrowe Alas the Zoolander reference is lost on me. I haven’t seen the movie. /cc @KristenObaid

via TweetDeck

@KristenObaid This is non-trivial. DSD only recently issued security rules for iPad. Do we even have iPad forensics yet? /cc@joshrowe

via TweetDeck in reply to KristenObaid

@KristenObaid Police must extract files from @bengrubb’s iPad while preserving forensic “chain of custody” to use as evidence. /cc @joshrowe

via TweetDeck

Christ there should so be some sort of intelligence test before people are allowed to post comments on websites. Or vote. Or breathe.

And so we finally come to Thursday, for which we are both grateful and concerned…
