Transmitters off. See you in SYD.

via TweetDeck

@OhCrap Yes and no. I know places, and it is for work so deductible.

via TweetDeck in reply to OhCrap

@OhCrap Thanks but no thanks. :) As I say, the week has been arranged around not having that kind of travel time.

via TweetDeck in reply to OhCrap

@OhCrap Yes, being in Sydney and close to the CBD is kinda the point. The week’s tasks have been arranged around that.

via TweetDeck in reply to OhCrap

Meanwhile Telstra whinges to the government that they can’t be forced to tell people their usage because it might be out of date.

via TweetDeck

Good God! DiGi Malaysia just SMS’d me to say I’d spent MYD 1 [AUD 0.30] already today and offered cheap calls and SMS through to midnight.

via TweetDeck

Oh there’s always Wentworth Falls, @OhCrap, but I have appointments in Sydney on Tuesday and Wednesday so Sydney was the plan.

via TweetDeck

Botheration. My usual Sydney hidey-hole is booked out. Looks like I’ll have to get creative about tomorrow night’s sleeping arrangements.

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: You know what Germaine Greer said about going through immigration? [No. Please spare me? I’m delicate.]

via TweetDeck

Ta to everyone who updated me on the Newcastle port expansion. I was behind the times there.

via TweetDeck

Shuttle train journey to satellite terminal complete. Nearly 90 mins until departure. Time for dinner.

via TweetDeck

Through customs and security.

via TweetDeck

Through Immigration.

via TweetDeck

Having checked in at KL Sentral station, I walk straight through the irritation of the departure hall.

via TweetDeck

We have arrived at KL International Airport. You can stop your stopwatches now.

via TweetDeck

I daresay I will regret that tweet fairly shortly.

via TweetDeck

Hey you folks who seem to be tweeting about an annoying TV show. Can you bloody well use the hashtag so you’re properly filtered out? TIA.

via TweetDeck

@tweetingtechno Ah yes well, it’s unlikely a Malaysian petroleum engineer voted for anything much in Australia. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetingtechno

This is definitely 160km/h. I know those cars on the freeway are at [ahem] 130km/h or so and we’re passing them with some alacrity.

via TweetDeck

@tweetingtechno Definitely a my misunderstand. Ta for the clarification.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetingtechno

@tweetingtechno That said, I’m not entirely sure which of my rapid series of tweets you’re referring to. Confusion abounds.

via TweetDeck in reply to tweetingtechno

@tweetingtechno Sorry, which categorisation is “your aspiration mates” meant to place me into? I’m not a big fan of politics by tribalism.

via TweetDeck

@smperris Well, you do the maths. arseh.at/kz5 57km in 28min = 122km/h average speed for the trip.

via TweetDeck in reply to smperris

I was talking to a petroleum engineer about the backlog of coal ships off Newcastle. He asked why they don’t expand the port. What to say?

via TweetDeck

I’ll have you know I’m spending AUD 11.30 on this train trip, @smperris!

via TweetDeck

The KLIA Ekspres departs Sentral. Start your stopwatches.

via TweetDeck

It’s a shame Australia’s politicians are too busy thinking up new ways to be cunts to refugees to provide, you know, infrastructure.

via TweetDeck

True. Free 4G internet and 230V power on the 160km/h train that takes precisely 28 mins to get to the airport. “Developing world” my arse.

via TweetDeck

There is AC power on the train. And, reputedly, Wi-Fi.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Here’s the next train already.

via TweetDeck

Checked in to MH123 at KL Sentral station, baggage gone, but missed the KLIA Ekspres by 60 seconds.

via TweetDeck

That young man is practicing his English by repeating the station announcements and making cow noises at slow-moving commuters. I like.

via TweetDeck

I’d like to say something clever about how you can’t possibly go in the wrong direction on a MONOrail, but I can’t just now.

via TweetDeck

Dear Backpacker, if you’d just unpaw your girlfriend for a moment you wouldn’t be BLOCKING THE ENTIRE KUALA LUMPUR MONORAIL SYSTEM!

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… I’ll have to reply to stuff when I get some electricity. Laksa trumps 230V.

via TweetDeck

Who tweeted the link to this article on Forth? It’s bringing back memories. Wonderful, scary, moist, shivery memories. arseh.at/kyz

via TweetDeck

Time for one more laksa and pain killers that have no codeine in them.

via TweetDeck

This is not a word. And I say this as a descriptivist. post.ly/3B3KO

via Posterous

@oberonsghost Besides, I wouldn’t dare make up a name like Titiwangsa.

via TweetDeck in reply to oberonsghost

RT @oberonsghost I’m just having a kind of day where there are mammaries everywhere… [They ARE everywhere!]

via TweetDeck

@PointZeroOne I’ll be catching the monorail again shortly, when I head to Sentral to catch the KLIA Ekspres.

via TweetDeck in reply to PointZeroOne

Leo Sayer? Orly?

via TweetDeck

This monorail actually goes somewhere useful.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… Hope there’s somewhere to shower at the airport later. I’m going to reek after all this walking.

via TweetDeck

Jesus wept! As that guy reeled in a 20cm fish it was almost stolen by a lizard about a metre long!

via TweetDeck

Guys fishing in the concrete-banked river. Looks filthy, but elapsed time between fish caught is less than 60 seconds.

via TweetDeck

Oh. That’s over with. Bothersome efficient urban transit systems!

via TweetDeck

Learning by doing. KL Transit from Bandaraya to Titiwangsa.

via TweetDeck

I’m getting very tempted to just have a beer anyway, and live with the “violently ill” part. Projectile vomiting tends to focus politics.

via TweetDeck

Oh, and has Prime Minister Gillard really done what a headline I just saw suggests she’s done? FFS! When did her brain get scooped out?

via TweetDeck

No, WordPress.com, I will NOT give you carte blanche permission to change my Twitter profile just so I can comment on someone’s blog. FFS!

via TweetDeck

@Peter_Gill Ta for the offer. But only a few hours left, I’ve been here since Wed. Just time for a little look-see today, I’m covered.

via TweetDeck in reply to Peter_Gill

Today’s KL achievement: Not killed by that motorcycle.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Not sure where, but I have GPS and cash.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Did I write down my flight times wrong? I did. Departure time is 2210 KL time. Not 2110. And certainly not 1910. I am an arsehat.

via TweetDeck

@HazelHassan Thanks, Hazel. I’m about to check out and decide where to wander today. My flight isn’t until 1910.

Suddenly reminded of my brief treatise on books, sex and unicorn horns. arseh.at/kym /cc @ZaraBaxter @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck

@ZaraBaxter @R_Chirgwin Don’t get me started! Someone can do one creative thing and leech it for 70 years… Bah! Make ‘em sing every day!

via TweetDeck in reply to ZaraBaxter

Mon plan: Unplanned randomness in Kuala Lumpur, which still can’t involve alcohol; possibly some comms catch-up; MH123 KUL-SYD.

via TweetDeck

@ZaraBaxter I believe I used the word “should”, not “would”… and who’s doing the frowning? /cc @R_Chirgwin

via TweetDeck in reply to ZaraBaxter

@ZaraBaxter @R_Chirgwin Whether an algorithm is implemented in hardware or software shouldn’t affect its legal status, should it?

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems The white ghost talking into the fluffy thing attracted a lot of attention. I should’ve taken a shot from my POV.

Recording the “Patch Monday” podcast in the streets of Kuala Lumpur, a small video. youtu.be/94OvmQzL1hE

“Doppelganger domains a big hole in email security”, writes @LiamT. Hackers really do have it easy. arseh.at/kyi

via TweetDeck

@Wyld Thank you. I believe the wind will be at my back, too, what with the Jet Streams and things.

RT @jasonlangenauer: Oh my Lord in His heaven. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall is slow cooking rabbit in rendered pork fat. [Ah, health food!]

via TweetDeck

Monday. In Kuala Lumpur. It’s my last day here. I’ll be doing everything possible to avoid work without being arrested.

via TweetDeck

Attempting moar sleepz, before my final day in Kuala Lumpur. I reckon I can get another 4 or 5 hours, unless an editor needs me.

via TweetDeck

@JonoH Seeya matey, take care. [waves]

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Hah! Well, yes, in my case it’s now A-9. Nine days until I can have alcohol again. No Kasperskyhospitalitybooze was very .

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Yep, was in Jalan Petaling briefly on Sunday arvo, standard pirate shite it would seem. But this has primarily been a work trip.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Mind you, if I was in AU, this is roughly when I’d be waking up now, almost. I think my body is objecting to the lack of alcohol.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

@JonoH Well, I’m still in KL, so it’s “only” approaching 3am. But I slept 8.30pm to midnight ‘cos exhausted, then woke to finish my writing.

via TweetDeck in reply to JonoH

“Patch Monday” podcast filed, finally, along with a security checklist article based on @toxzique’s presentation. Fark.

via TweetDeck

My sleep patterns are truly screwed. I crashed from 8.30pm to midnight local time, and now I’m finishing the writing I needed to do.
