Add to that the fact that I tried to walk through a window this morning and, well, that’s probably enough for today. Good night.

Whacko. A tooth and/or its filling just disintegrated. Let me just file that under “Things I have neither time nor money to deal with.”

RT @jasonlangenauer: People actually describe themselves as “dynamic”? [For some value of “people”, yes.]

@Drag0nista If a bit of variety and occasional surprises in writing is being a word snob, then I’ll have a pint of that snobbery right now!

via TweetDeck in reply to Drag0nista

@Drag0nista I see the linguists defending adjectives against the blanket adjectives=bad nouns=good stuff, but yes many can be trimmed.

@charispalmer Sentiment algorithms? Twitter-driven hedge funds? That’s just sick. At least you’ll get through it without using the c-word.

Editing my own writing, I decide that there’s no need to specify a “quick” straw poll. I’m pretty sure that’s the only kind.

The research for this op-ed is making me feel a little bit dirty. And not in a good way. Damn you, @charispalmer!

via TweetDeck

I’ve only just started my research for the article, @jasonlangenauer, but it does appear to be a case of arsehattery, yes.

via TweetDeck

Right. The headache has not gone, yet I must write. The subject of this op-ed will probably not be pleased.

via TweetDeck

Oh dear. “Empowering” people to deal with “issues” and “challenges” rather than “problems” shits me to tears. Corporate wank-words.

@BennettArron In the end, I did remove the dot. It meant I wasn’t using the actual business name, but one learns to submit. Willingly.

@JuliusFlywheel My goodness you’re in a serious mood there.

I’ve done what every sensible sysadmin should do with DNS problems. Delegated it to someone else. Or is that escalated?

via TweetDeck

If I were magical, @PointZeroOne, if I were a smart man,@D_Keating, wouldn’t I have a beard? Riddle me that! And I don’t mean a lesbian.

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: Because Paul Vixie has a lot to answer for, that’s why. [Can we register the new TLD “blamepaulvixie”?]

via TweetDeck

Troubleshooting a DNS fault. One server can’t resolve a certain domain, which is otherwise working fine. Why do I even know this shit?

via TweetDeck

NATA accreditation for which “all”, @nigelwadsworth? ACS members? ACS does want to be THE accreditation body for IT professionals.

That 0day vulnerability in Skype for Mac? Full disclosure is now at http://arseh.at/79y

The Australian Computer Society’s new CEO is Alan Patterson. http://arseh.at/79x

The effluxion of time has taught me that having a cheap pub hamburger for lunch may have been a tactical error. Yes, I said “effluxion”.

via TweetDeck

That nap helped. I still have a headache, but it no longer feels like my glassed are drilling into my face. Bonus.

Back at the Camperdown studio and fatigued. The nose pads caused this problem, I’m sure of it.

via TweetDeck

Returning from Circular Quay to Camperdown, by bus. Device batteries may not last the trip.

No, Client, if the Procedure says use the Password for Service A to authorise something, using the Password for Service B is not the same.

@ljLoch Given that nothing in the name of this pub could possibly relate to the hashtag , I assume I’m not at your preferred venue.

I have retreated to a small hostelry in The Rocks to read my notes from this morning’s briefing and see what story I might write.

via TweetDeck

@danielstone @sophiektarr I first thought your Proboscis Support System (P.S.S) was about Snort, wondered when you started covering infosec.

via TweetDeck in reply to danielstone

RT @max_au: @stilgherrian so how’s the snort 3.0 dev coming along then? [It wasn’t that kind of briefing.]

via TweetDeck

Sourcefire make Snort. All systems administrators know Snort. If they don’t, sack them. Sourcefire has 7 staff in Australia.

via TweetDeck

At Hotwire PR, The Rocks, for a breakfast briefing by Sourcefire etc: How prepared is Australia for emerging information security threats.

via TweetDeck

Well, those nose pad things on MY spectacles are bent somehow and they’ve left really nasty little bruises.

via TweetDeck

They’re called nose pads. Thank you @sophiektarr @sharpcontrast @pointlesswords @jackpiggott @jonoabroad

via TweetDeck

On a pair of spectacles, those two little plastic pads that supposedly cushion them as they sit on your nose? What are they called?

via TweetDeck

Tue plan, from a cab: Infosec briefing, The Rocks; write it up for @zdnetaustralia; write for @technologyspec; quiet night, I think.

via TweetDeck

Chewsday, and I’m late. Here we go…
