Fark, I just saw the forecast for Friday night. @R_Chirgwin will be well please by the bed of glowing hot coals he’ll inherit tomorrow.

I have suggested the young lady take the first cab. Chivalry is not dead, but it’s fucking cold.

@onlineeds Apparently the retard’s name is Daryl and he’s a known tosser. A shame he’s not watching.

Well that was the third most ineffectual threat of physical violence that I’ve ever had to face. Regulars in the bar confirm he’s useless.

@jplonie @PointZeroOne I don’t know whether Gnaomi is in the main storage facility or in the last couple of boxes at a friend’s place.

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: Do you still have the topless gnome? [I do, but Gnaomi is in storage with my furniture and stuff.]

@bubbiting That reminds me, someone said they were organising access to the CMS so I could fix things like that. I must chase.

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting AFAIK what I file for CSO Online just gets copied, pasted and marked up for formatting. Subs are rare online, tho ZDNet has them.

via TweetDeck

@bubbiting Yeah, typos all the way through, I imagine. It’s normal on tight deadlines. I guess our workflows need improving.

via TweetDeck

All the way through writing that story I was thinking, “I need a beer”. Do you think it shows?

via TweetDeck

Me at CSO: “AVG 2012: your local pub bouncer made digital” arseh.at/ksg

via TweetDeck

Beer. I has it.

via TweetDeck

Somehow the cab driver knew, automatically, that he was taking me straight to the pub.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Cab to The Grand View Hotel, Wentworth Falls. I’ll be the unshaven tramp in the grey hoodie.

via TweetDeck

You are right, @jonoabroad, the Need for Beer over-rides the Need for Closure. I have just called the cab.

via TweetDeck

I will wait for my CSO story to appear online so I can tweet it before going to the pub. It’s what we call an Act of Closure.

via TweetDeck

RT @onlineeds: Pop into the blue mist and get a hot chocolate from the grumpy but wonderful alan. [Another time. Beer is required today.]

via TweetDeck

Wow. The day’s targets have all been achieved. Apart from the errand to Wentworth Falls, which I’m about to do. That’s quite remarkable.

via TweetDeck

CSO story filed. Whew! It’ll be on the internets at 5pm.

via TweetDeck

Writing is interrupted by a kookaburra outside the window, until it’s chased away by three currawongs. The kookaburra retreats, disgruntled.

via TweetDeck

Settling into write a thing for CSO. And what a lovely day for it.

via TweetDeck

There! I’ve planned what I want to do with Kaspersky Lab’s people in Kuala Lumpur next Thursday and Friday. Now, PR Minions, make it happen!

via TweetDeck

@garthk Compare @HamishBarwick’s piece arseh.at/ks8 with mine arseh.at/kod and see if we agree on what was said. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to garthk

@garthk Ah! Schneier cites “Social media could render covert policing ‘impossible’” by my colleague @HamishBarwick, same event I was at.

Pro tip: In the forest, open doors let in both fresh air and copious flies.

@joshgnosis @j_hutch Really? I’ve seen CRT TVs and monitors sit on the street for weeks because no-one wants them, even for free!

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @joshgnosis We must surely be getting to the point where CRTs, and plasmas with analog tuners, are dying in the dust?

via TweetDeck

@joshgnosis No set-top boxes to be seen. DVD players, yes. STBs no. Though they would presumably work a treat.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis We have CRT TVs here at Bunjaree Cottages ‘cos they use less power, a vital attribute ‘cos we’re off-grid on solar.

The client’s email campaign has not only been assembled, it has also been sent. It’s about something happening tonight, so no rush at all.

via TweetDeck

Dear Client, your email template has a slot for a landscape photo. The portrait photo you just provided is unhelpful.

via TweetDeck

Thu plan: Create client marketing email; plan Kaspersky Lab / Kuala Lumpur coverage; write for CSO; errand to Wentworth Falls; quiet night.

via TweetDeck

I’m glad I got up early to enjoy that Spring sunrise, ‘cos a client just dumped an urgent job on me as well. A full day ahead!

via TweetDeck

@DrJJoyner @seanpaulkelley Yep, Google’s data mining, or potential for same, is moving towards being a front-burner issue, methinks.

via TweetDeck

I also wish to report that taking the day off yesterday was a remarkably sensible idea. I thoroughly recommend it.

via TweetDeck

Hello Thursday. Hello September. Hello Spring. I’m looking forward to watching the sunrise at the other end of the valley in under an hour.
