Hoping that another early night will finally bring my sleep patterns back into some sort of normality. Off-grid apart from essentials.

@Steve_Lockstep I’m waiting for the video to see who went further off-piste in that one, me or Kaspersky. At least I hadn’t been drinking.

@wolfcat @bernietb Well more to the point, folders already have a sort-by-date option. And yes, the ISO YYYY-MM-DD works fine.

Suspecting a certain editor will turn down a proposed lede that includes both “fuckin’” and “cunts” in the first sentence.

via TweetDeck

@wolfcat Maybe they’d buy the t-shirt if you hadn’t caved in to arse-backwards US date formatting. Just a thought.

RT @jasonlangenauer: I find it’s very effective to take 10 minutes at the end of each day to proactively give up on the next. [Smart man.]

via TweetDeck

RT @damonism: You started working, or started giving up, at 0500? [Good question. In retrospect, my answer is “Both”.]

via TweetDeck

In case you haven’t worked it out, I’ve given up on productive work for the day. I started shortly after 0500 so I reckon that’s fair.

@TerrorBite Thank you, but all credit for arseh.at must go to @thepatus, for it is his thing.

Just what Australia needs: more bush lawyers. You’re welcome. http://arseh.at/75d

RT @Bruff: In my view, the ’s already happened, and we’ve all been found wanting. is our punishment.

via TweetDeck

RT @OzAz: “this afternoon” We’ve been doing it all week [That’s the saddest thing I’ve seen all day.]

via TweetDeck

So let me get this right. We’re basing our entire media and “joke” output this afternoon on what some ignorant arsehat said on a billboard?

via TweetDeck

RT @derekbarry: I’m hiding out in Brisbane for a few weeks to finish my thesis on survival strategies for country journalism. [Irony much?]

via TweetDeck

@natecochrane How come Adam Spencer got a hug from Eugene Kaspersky but not me? Riddle me that. We were both on panels with him.

Waves of fatigue again? And now body aches? Plan change: Lunch, then “Patch Monday” audio editing ‘cos it’s a non-brain task. Remainder TBA.

The National Classification Scheme Review has just released its Issues Paper. Submissions close 15 July. http://arseh.at/75a

I seems I was wrong when I said @bengrubb wouldn’t see his iPad for months. He just said he has it back already. http://arseh.at/758

via TweetDeck

I keep reading “carbon tax” as “cartoon tax”. [insert obvious comment here]

“MP facing child porn charges due in court”, says @abcnews, with world’s blockiest pixellation ever. http://arseh.at/751

via TweetDeck

Ta @peterjblack for explaining Australia’s laws on unauthorised computer access. That’ll be in the “Patch Monday” podcast on, erm, Monday.

Mobile: Drop off washing at laundry; breakfast at nearby cafe; return to SEKRIT hideaway for MOAR RECORDINGZ.

@kenada_ex Hah! You stayed for all of the tutorial days too? I’m amazed you survived!

@luke_smith A “demo” Facebook account? How so “demo”? That little snippet of info hasn’t been reported AFAIK.

“Qld cops denounce ‘ethical hacking’” http://arseh.at/72s Your audio comments to +61 2 8011 3733 or Skype stilgherrian

Going into studio mode. First recording is 0800, but have to decide the overall shape of “Patch Monday” podcast before then. Quiet please.

via TweetDeck

@adm_76 Yeah, the bastards never seem to put that sort of thing in the prospectus, do they? Bastards. Just… bastards.

via TweetDeck in reply to adm_76

You face your inbox and run through exactly the same tasks as the last 3360 working days. A sudden stroke then death seems appealing.

via TweetDeck

Does anyone feel that it turned out right? “I want to be a fireman” soon becomes “I’m an insurance assessor struggling with the mortgage”.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if Peter Garrett feels that his political career is as expected. Photo ops at primary schools and defending NAPLAN testing? Wow.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan, unordered: Sort recordings, do new ones, plan “Patch Monday” podcast; write one article; sort client-developer drama.

via TweetDeck

@jeffsonstein Yeah, there’s writers who seem to think the aim is to show how clever, well-read they are. It’s about the READER, arsehats!

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

Thanks again, @jeffsonstein. I’m used to writing for a general audience. If “average Jill & Joe” CAN’T understand it then I’ve failed IMO.

via TweetDeck

And all respect to @technologyspec for letting me use as my “Don’t do this” example the very technology they themselves use.

via TweetDeck

@jeffsonstein Thanks for that, Jeff. One day there’ll be a follow-up explaining that Facebook isn’t exactly a federated identity provider.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeffsonstein

I just re-read my @technologyspec op-ed “Privacy is a commodity” and, well, I’m quite happy. http://arseh.at/72t

Ten hours of highly-disrupted sleep and I still feel ratshit. This does not bode well.

Hello, Friday, you cuddly little thing, you.
