“The jacketed bird could be strapped to a block of wood and put into an apparatus,” and WWII is won. Kinda. http://arseh.at/88c

Methinks I’ll go off-grid, since I was awake at 0500.

via TweetDeck

@EnsignR No, my blog is useless these days. You’ll have to await me actually writing the thing tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to EnsignR

WTF? These self-entitled cunts want compensation from Virgin Atlantic? FFS, someone kill them! http://arseh.at/88b

via TweetDeck

RT @Steve_Ollis: You’ve failed to mention The Fanta Menace. [If that’s the only way I’ve failed today then it’s a win.]

via TweetDeck

@BennettArron You should be able to get last night’s 7.30 at http://www.abc.net.au/7…. it’s the story on cybersecurity.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

@gjfitzgerald I can’t speak for anyone else but, no, you’re way wrong. I’ll happily point to things that show my age, but music is not it.

via TweetDeck

@gjfitzgerald The Doors? Like from four decades ago? Um, no. Hardly.

via TweetDeck in reply to gjfitzgerald

Oh dear. ABC’s “7.30” will not be happy with me when Crikey goes out at lunchtime tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

Sadly, @jonaholmesMW @MelbourneBitter, typing a ⸮ requires weird-arse Unicode key sequences, and I CBF’d looking them up. I copy’n’pasted.

via TweetDeck

@BennettArron I admire your ability to scroll back. It’s a lost art, you know.

via TweetDeck in reply to BennettArron

There’s already an irony marker, @jonaholmesMW, and it’s ⸮, dated to the 19th Century. http://arseh.at/887 /cc @MelbourneBitter

via TweetDeck

RT @captain_beef: From what I’m seeing in pubs, they need to do a story on ‘The Ever-growing Cider Menace’ [Agreed. And not just cider.]

via TweetDeck

@gilfer Actually, @BennettArron explains identity theft rather well. He’s one of the good guys. http://arseh.at/6zl

@johnb78 Well the more you tell me, the more I reckon the global drug figure must be bullshit too. I think I have a Project now!

via TweetDeck in reply to johnb78

I’ve just referred to “statistics laundering” in my replies to @johnb78. For the background to that term see http://arseh.at/886

via TweetDeck

@johnb78 Mind you, that figure for the size of the global drug trade could also be the result of statistics laundering.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnb78

@johnb78 Ta for the linkage. If “cybercrime bigger than drug trade” results from “statistics laundering” I’ll gladly drop it from my spiel.

via TweetDeck

@johnb78 You’re looking at millions of $20 transactions skimmed off random punters, plus bigger frauds the banks don’t talk about.

via TweetDeck in reply to johnb78

Marushat is very credible actually, @johnb78, and “cybercrime bigger than international drug trade” has been true for ~5 years now.

via TweetDeck

Apparently the internet is used by people these days, and some of them are not nice.

via TweetDeck

Jesus, guys, let’s just completely fail to distinguish between serious infosec breaches and random DDoS attacks. 7.30, you’ve been pwned!

via TweetDeck

“The ever-growing cyber menace”? FFS!

via TweetDeck

Gawd last night’s “7.30” story on cybercrime really is a tad lame, isn’t it. The very first sentence is wrong. http://arseh.at/883

via TweetDeck

I still say one of my best times in Bangkok was celebrating King’s birthday with Patpong bar girls. http://arseh.at/882 http://arseh.at/881

Glorious abandoned Sathorn Unique skyscraper in Bangkok http://arseh.at/87x which I saw in 2007 http://arseh.at/87y Ping @ApostrophePong

via TweetDeck

@BrandDNA Erm, finshing off a luxury skyscraper would be a very expensive way of providing for the homeless. Besides, people DO live there.

via TweetDeck in reply to BrandDNA

@cowspanker Mine was quite Protestant, but it’s not that. I’m one of the folk living with depression and anxiety and such fun stuff.

via TweetDeck in reply to cowspanker

@cowspanker Nah no regrets. But it’s less about fitting in the ego and more the effort needed to dispel the insecurities. Uhoh. Psychology.

via TweetDeck in reply to cowspanker

RT @ikostar: I think the important thing is to contradict yourself on each network so you kindof cancel out. People respect that. [Agreed!]

via TweetDeck

Is it greedy being on two ABC networks simultaneously? I mean, I am talking different things.

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC Radio National’s “Life Matters” tomorrow at 0905 AEST talking cybercrime. Live stream at http://arseh.at/5q0

via TweetDeck

I’m on ABC Mid North Coast NSW tomorrow after 0900 AEST talking Facebook stuff. No stream, but frequencies listed at http://arseh.at/87s

via TweetDeck

About to record a spot for ABC Radio. I’ll tell you more once I know when it’s scheduled to be aired, but it’s tomorrow morning some time.

via TweetDeck

@UnderTheSea2011 Ta, but Wattle Cottage is being prepped for punters. I’m warmly ensconced at Tea Tree this week. http://arseh.at/3z9

via TweetDeck

Me at Crikey: “Forget Anonymous, LulzSec, the real bad guys are in your bank accounts” http://arseh.at/87q [Paywall’d, free trial]

via TweetDeck

Sorry. Setting a fire in Wattle Cottage. Not quite the same.

via TweetDeck

Setting fire to Wattle Cottage.

via TweetDeck

@awrd Hah! Sure. I’m chatting on “Life Matters” in the morning and then have deadlines, so the afternoon is better.

via TweetDeck in reply to awrd

OK, that’s two consecutive phone calls from ABC Radio wanting me for spots tomorrow. Anyone else while we’re at it?

via TweetDeck

RT @Skigod: It’s a good warm up for the ABC’s new legal drama Crownies, which starts soon I believe. [Yep http://arseh.at/87k 14 July.]

via TweetDeck

RT @robcorr: Lawyers who have seen [“On Trial”] (prosecutors and defence) are universal in their praise. Accurate, honest, sensitive.

via TweetDeck

Coffee not rationed in UK, but “replaced by substitutes made from roasted grains”, @vealmince http://arseh.at/87j

via TweetDeck

ABC’s “On Trial”, first TV in real Aust criminal courts, is superb (except unneeded music). First 3 eps on iView. http://arseh.at/87i

via TweetDeck

I’d assumed it was something like that, @vealmince. In the UK the WWII rationing continued until when? Mid-1950s?

via TweetDeck

RT @vealmince: I wonder if that’s a hangover from WWII and post-war coffee shortages - substitutes like acorns and chicory were very common.

The eucalypts have shed lots of small branches, but that seems the extent of it. Plenty of kindling to collect now.

via TweetDeck

Right. Let’s brave the sub-7C day to fetch the rubbish bins and see what’s been destroyed by the wind overnight.

via TweetDeck

Once more my @zdnetaustralia article is being served up with recruiting ads for the Defence Signals Directorate. Quite amusement.

via TweetDeck

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “AVG urges mandatory cybercrime reporting” http://arseh.at/87d

via TweetDeck

Crikey story filed. The yellow-tailed black cockatoos screech with joy. http://arseh.at/87c

via TweetDeck

RT @mpesce: Is it about teh ? [No. I’m not a weather presenter.]

via TweetDeck

Story for @zdnetaustralia filed. And now onto the next story.

via TweetDeck

Cybercrime Legislation Amendment Bill 2011 to be introduced into parliament today, to enable accession to the Council of Europe Convention.

via TweetDeck

Thank you for your cynicism, @jeffsonstein @iain_chalmers @glengyron. Also, the @technologyspec piece isn’t the one I’m referring to.

via TweetDeck

Me at @technologyspec: “The exploits of Freelancer.com”. They won’t be happy. http://arseh.at/878

Wed plan: Writing through morning, two articles; cook a proper meal; client webby-work-planning in afternoon; quiet night with fire.

A pale Sun rises. / Weak, it struggles through wind. / A new year starts, cold.

One tree creaks. Small sound! / Between its branches, pale sky / awaits a cold Sun.

Grey ash stirred to life / sudden sparks, a flame, a roar / pre-dawn silence ends.
