Baffled. Possibly an early night will help, before an early start for Canberra. Possibly I’ll go slightly mad.

@phonakins Nah. As I said earlier, Canberra is about to be warmer that Wentworth Falls has been the past few days.

via TweetDeck in reply to phonakins

I still have time free in Canberra tomorrow and Wednesday afternoon, I think. It’s hard to say, given how my schedule changes so.

Larry Ellison’s tree-blocks-view lawsuit. His photo http://arseh.at/7hf My photo http://arseh.at/6yf I’ll say no more.

via TweetDeck

@paintmehappy Thanks very much for the offer, but I’d already gone off Twitter to get everything sorted. Just saw your tweet now, sorry.

via TweetDeck in reply to paintmehappy

I’ll wait until 6pm or so, book some accommodation online, and then scarper. Unless a better Plan B emerges. Which I doubt.

via TweetDeck

I can’t even remember what they wanted to talk to me about. It was their story, @NeilMcMahon, not mine. This is a fool’s errand.

via TweetDeck

No offer to pay, @Kimota. And to be honest, @drunkenmadman, I couldn’t be arsed drinking tonight. Half an hour, @melissahoyer? That’s gone.

via TweetDeck

A question of etiquette: How long do you wait at a pub for a journalist? I didn’t note their phone number.

via TweetDeck

@johnvacy Oh, I have my theories about the eventual demise of the filter policy, or maybe today “denoument” is a better word. We’ll see.

via TweetDeck in reply to john_nee_vacy

@johnvacy I don’t have an appointment with Senator Conroy on this trip yet, but I’m sure he already knows my views on the “filter”.

via TweetDeck in reply to john_nee_vacy

I have migrated to a certain place of drinking for my 5pm meeting. With a journalist. This will end well.

@andrew_hedge For this trip, Microsoft has booked a flight. But I do want to do the SYD-CBR train at some point soon.

via TweetDeck in reply to egadheg

@damonism Canberra has been warmer than Wentworth Falls the past few days. I’ll live. Though my warmest jacket is still in storage. Sigh.

Wed in Canberra: “Microsoft Politics & Technology Forum” w@IainDaleDale etc http://arseh.at/6h6

via TweetDeck

Tomorrow in Canberra: “Privacy and security in a connected world: anonymity, data loss, tracking and the social web” http://arseh.at/7g0

via TweetDeck

Well all this is hypothetical, @katinacurtis. I’m booked onto a flight at 0740 tomorrow morning. I have two vital meetings in Canberra.

via TweetDeck

I’m thinking the last time I took a long bus trip was in December 2007, Bangkok to Rayong. To look at this view. http://arseh.at/7hb

via TweetDeck

Hypothetically, that is.

via TweetDeck

“Popular with backpackers” isn’t exactly a recommendation, is it @obrijo? ;) Unless they share their drugs.

via TweetDeck

I’ve not considered buses for anything longer than an hour or so in ages, @obrijo. Is it possible to work on them these days?

via TweetDeck

OK, the SYD-CBR train thing has pressed a few buttons. Yes @beneltham appalling it takes so long. Alas @jonoabroad not steam.

via TweetDeck

Here’s the schedule for trains from Australia’s most populous city to the capital. Pathetic, eh? http://arseh.at/7h9

via TweetDeck

“Eye of the Tiger”? Goodness, is THAT the time?

via TweetDeck

@michaelneale I’ve been meaning to catch the train SYD-CBR some time, but hey Microsoft is paying for this flight, so… [shrugs]

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Um, yeah there’s a train SYD-CBR, though it takes 4.5 hours and runs once every six weeks or so. How embarrasment.

via TweetDeck in reply to michaelneale

This Vivid Sydney thing? More gratuitous energy wastage on coloured lights? I wouldn’t want to be associated with that!

via TweetDeck

Pondering where, specifically, to spend the night in Sydney before my ugly-hour flight to Canberra tomorrow. I’ll wait for the cheap deals.

via TweetDeck

@MrFlungabunga It must be a terrible burden working with those colleagues. You have my sympathy.

via TweetDeck in reply to MrFlungabunga

@Reemski @purserj OK, I’ll have to get back to you, ‘cos no Sydney dates are locked in beyond next week, and currently none are Mon-Wed.

via TweetDeck

@Reemski I know I’m in Sydney on Thursday morning, but will look at the calendar shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to Reemski

@Reemski Nah I’m more or less on my way, unless it’s starting to get too late for you? A re-schedule would work nicely for me actually.

via TweetDeck in reply to Reemski

It’s impossible for me to reach the station without wading ankle-deep in sneakers. Bus, I suppose.

via TweetDeck

Water 25cm+ deep along the sides of King St. Pavement inundated. Passers-by help prevent fallen man drowning.

via TweetDeck

King St, Newtown, submerged http://post.ly/27ftd

via Posterous

Oh. Newtown is currently being washed away in a deluge of biblical scale.

via TweetDeck

Right, that’s lunch, errands and snark done. Mobile again: Newtown station; Wynyard station; 1500 meeting; back to Enmore for MOAR meeting.

via TweetDeck

Oh no, @IainDale, you need to consider the Deputy Leader of the Opposition and Samantha Fox. http://arseh.at/7h4

via TweetDeck

IainDale Loving the hairstyle of the Deputy Leader of the Opposition here in Australia. I hear she was Krystal Carrington’s stunt double in Dynasty.

Perhaps one of you lovely junkies could coach @IainDale in the finer points? I’ve just eaten. http://arseh.at/7h3

RT @PeopleMagicHR: At least it’s not criminology. [This is true. But I wouldn’t mind starring in an episode of “Underbelly”.]

via TweetDeck

@caseyjohnellis It’s Monday, so I’m not sure whether to congratulate you or send someone around to slap you a bit. Perhaps both.

via TweetDeck in reply to caseyjohnellis

Not quite sure what to make of someone analysing my writing as part of their Honours thesis in anthopology.

via TweetDeck

@anthonybaxter I get the media releases from O’Connor’s office when they intercept a boat. If you like, I can warn you when it happens?

via TweetDeck in reply to anthonybaxter

Juggling conflicting requirements. I never was good at juggling.

I can’t wait until I’m 84.

@leslienassar Trainworking is the future, yes, as long as the battery holds out.

“Patch Monday” podcast at @zdnetaustralia: “Real issues for cybersecurity awareness” with @duckblog http://arseh.at/7gt

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed. @expectproblems is right, one can get a goodly bit of writing done on a train.

via TweetDeck

Cold wet rain is cold. And wet.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Well, my writing will be a quick piece based on my interview with @IainDale, so the rain won’t figure strongly.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems The mountains are beautiful in this weather. I’ll be writing on the train tho.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Mobile: Cab to Wentworth Falls; quick snack; 1031 train to Sydney; errands and meetings galore.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Nope. Sydney tonight, sparrow-fart flight to Canberra tomorrow, return to Sydney Wednesday night. Bunjaree on Thursday?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Generator off. Battery stable at 51.6V.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. And now to brave the cold and have that shower. Sigh.

via TweetDeck

In studio mode, writing and recording a cranky news summary for the “Patch Monday” podcast. As one does.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin The generator is on. I think it was 49.1V in the battery before I started, but I was more worried… um, no, not a fuel spill.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin You may indeed add something to do with Volts to my schedule. And I’ll get that under way shortly.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT me: New blog post: “@IainDale on politics, Twitter, radio and authenticity”, a 30-min podcast http://arseh.at/7gj

Mudday. Given the rain overnight, I suspect there shall be much mud, both here in the Mountains and in Sydney.
