@corduroy I assume the max temp at 0046 just means it was leftover heat from yesterday. It was warn here yesterday, yeah?

Relax, @jplonie @weezmgk @purserj, it’s a stove. A Morsø stove, in fact.

When it’s a cold and windy night ahead, lighting a fire creates a certain mood of comfort and security.

@WoollyMittens It IS spring. Warmer days, sure, but at night with no cloud? The heat just zooms out.

Oh fuck. Katoomba forecast, 8km from here, is 5C overnight minimum. Looks like I’ll be gathering some firewood shortly.

via TweetDeck

Fark. I am knackered.

via TweetDeck

I have arrived at Bunjaree Cottages.

via TweetDeck

@ambiej Yeah but there are cheaper ways for me to correct any errors in my thinking. Sigh.

I have also just been informed that it looks like now owe $100 to the Member for Bradfield’s favourite charity. We shall see.

Me at Crikey: “NBN retail pricing neither a bargain nor an extravagance”, it’s headlined. arseh.at/l55

via TweetDeck

On a train, westbound.

Not the first time Amazon has been pinged for this stuff. From 2008: is.gd/w9nFUx HT @purserj

via TweetDeck

RT @purserj: This isn’t the first time amazon has been pinged for this is it? [NFI, sorry.]

via TweetDeck

Gosh that Amazon story is rippling and echoing fast through the Twitterverse. So it should be completely forgotten by nightfall.

via TweetDeck

So, Amazon bullies its warehouse workers? arseh.at/l4z Also, Wonkette has many stupid commenters.

@miss_shiny Thank you. I shall have a Boozing Status Update later today.

@AndySHastings You’re right. Victims shouldn’t be embarrassed whether robbed or conned. You inspired a story pitch, just accepted. Thanks.

via TweetDeck in reply to AndySHastings

@en_gy I don’t mind cheap.

via TweetDeck

@en_gy Hah! The story needs more codeine, or I need more codeine? I think I’ve probably had quiet enough… for now.

via TweetDeck

Codeine-addled story filed. Now, to await the editor’s judgement.

via TweetDeck

OK, I must shower / check out / write now. I’ll deal with @replies once that’s all dealt with. But I do still like you all.

via TweetDeck

You’re right, @nphair, it’s all “unauthorised access”, so maybe the hacking vs phished distinction is a distraction.

via TweetDeck

RT @kcarruthers: I think we’re going to see a lot of businesses using … ‘social business’ & ‘social enterprise’ from now on [Kill me now.]

via TweetDeck

Tue plan: Write a thing; return to Wentworth Falls; shopping; maybe write another thing, depending on pain and bile levels; quiet night.

via TweetDeck

That sounded a bit wrong.

via TweetDeck

@GreenJ I know. What can I say? I’m on drugs. I’ll submit to the first hint of vaguely-attractive offer.

via TweetDeck in reply to GreenJ

RT @LaTrioli: You be careful: this journalism thing can get addictive … [True. An editor emails you in a moment of weakness and… gulp!]

via TweetDeck

Oh fuck a lizard on a pogo stick, I think I just committed myself to writing about NBN retail pricing today.

via TweetDeck

RT @eddit0r: Exactly it’s the difference between being robbed and conned. [That nails it, thank you.]

via TweetDeck

But “I was hacked” frames it as being a victim of something complicated, technical. Not “I made a stupid and should be embarrassed”.

via TweetDeck

RT @Wyld: It’s all engineering, it’s just the tools used .. the end is the same. [Maybe we need to better differentiate aims and methods.]

via TweetDeck

It’s Dementia Awareness Week. arseh.at/l4o Which runs for 11 days. Please insert your own jokes here.

via TweetDeck

From the other direction, “social engineering” is a big part of hacking, or should I say cracking”, @NewtonMark @Mark_Butler_MP @garrettj

via TweetDeck

RT @NewtonMark: Big difference between “being hacked” and “giving your password to a bad person.” [Yes, but…]

via TweetDeck

So @Mark_Butler_MP, when you become a Minister of the Crown, how much information security training do you get?

via TweetDeck

I probably shouldn’t have used the word “scam” but perhaps “trick”. Needed: Taxonomy of bad things that can happen online.

via TweetDeck

It’s the old “my Twitter account has hacked” stuff, @posty, so we’re talking DMs linking to malicious sites.

via TweetDeck

So @Mark_Butler_MP fell for a phishing scam. Should we let him call that “being hacked”? It’s social engineering, sure, but… HT @garrettj

My chat about Twitter trends with ABC @666canberra yesterday is now online at arseh.at/l4m so you might want to avoid that.

via TweetDeck

Tuesday. Stretch. Ouch! Oh, Shoulder, must you do that? Erk. Apparently you must.
