“Patch Monday” podcast recorded, edited, mixed and compressed. I’ll do the words that go with it in the morning. Supper now, then bed.

For my audio editing, @danwarne, I use Reaper. reaper.fm Overkill for my simple podcast needs, but I’m used to high-end tools.

via TweetDeck

So, moving from a dual-core to a quad-core processor makes audio editing heaps, heaps faster. Who knew?

I was about to mention “Women’s Weekly” as a monthly magazine, @michaelneale. Then there’s “The name of the thing is called…”

via TweetDeck

Starting to edit up the “Patch Monday” podcast. It will perforce be “Patch Monday on Tuesday” this week.

A brief nap does work wonders on a hot, humid day, does it not?

TEDx is to the 21st-century middle class as travelling freak shows were to the farmers and workers of 1880s America. Discuss.

Fixing things with pad thai and codeine. For everything else, there’s Mastercard.

Considering the economic perils of unpolished nails.

Surely we could do something about this weather by just killing more people in carefully chosen categories.

via TweetDeck

Lack of sleep combines with outrageous humidity, then conspires with audio degradation of battery life. Losing focus.

RT @R_Chirgwin: But we know that strong identity is required for security! [So you’d want to get it right?]

via TweetDeck

@brettatitnews That this stupidity is standard is reason for hitting them even harder with the stick. Mindless copying of mistakes.

“To cure offence … each meal must include a single Shiraz grape peeled by a 15-year-old Bangladeshi immigrant clad in red silk.”

I set the surname field to “I_do_not_have_a_surname_so_you_had_better_delete_this”. And I indicated a special dietary need, namely…

RT @jeamland: One for each name. Duh. [Oh. Of course. “Now trust us with the securities of the clouds and things.” Jesus wept.]

“The Mobile field is required. The Office Number field is required.” Why, Trend Micro? Why the fuck do I have to have two telephone numbers?

via TweetDeck

Registering for Trend Micro’s Canberra Cloud Security Conference. Everyone must have a company, a job title and a two-word name. Arsehats.

Interview with @alexgkirk recorded. Sweating. Must find beer and electricity.

High-tech offices in old warehouses really do have to look a certain way, don’t they.

Dear World, you are permitted to wear your baseball caps right side to, EVEN IF YOU ARE LEBANESE.

That attractive look when a wheezing fat man jogging by the harbour wipes his sweaty brow on the bottom hem of his t-shirt, revealing all.

@acatinatree Sorry, I WHAT onto Tim Burrows’ face? Ewww. /cc @mumbrella

@WealthForTeens Hah! No, I’m interviewing @alexgkirk for my podcast etc. I haven’t done a job interview in 15 years or so. But thanks. ;)

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Wandering slowly to Millers Point for my 1300 interview recording, grazing on snacks along the way; wandering back again.

via TweetDeck

But @acatinatree, how can @mumbrella be “website of the year”? There’s not even any porn on it!

via TweetDeck

RT @leslienassar: Let me try that… HEY TWITTER I’M IN MELBOURNE FREE FOOD? I CAN RIGHT WORDS! [FFS feed him, People! Danger lurks!]

via TweetDeck

Well, that didn’t take long. Lunch in Sydney tomorrow with Zach Nelson, CEO of NetSuite. SEE, PEOPLE? TWITTER JUST FUCKING WELL WORKS!

via TweetDeck

I think @max_au is trying to talk me into signing up for some sort of suicide pact.

via TweetDeck

@max_au Could either of us actually have one more conversation about BYOD security management without throwing ourselves off a cliff?

via TweetDeck

Oh. I need a meeting in Sydney tomorrow morning, or possibly a nicely-catered lunch, to make tonight’s extra stay tax deductible. Hint.

This week’s “Patch Monday on Tuesday” podcast features malware researcher @alexgkirk of Sourcefire VRT. He’s at @ruxcon on the weekend.

via TweetDeck

@nicola_sydney Oh hell no! The hackers had well and truly infiltrated this website. No time to chase them, only to clear up the mess.

via TweetDeck in reply to nicola_sydney

@nicola_sydney But I do have rather a long and varied technical background. Not a good yardstick. I’ll blog this stuff at some point.

via TweetDeck in reply to nicola_sydney

@nicola_sydney Ah! WordPress, plus plugin for bookings system. That’s “easy” with my experience. Figuring out what the hackers did, less so.

via TweetDeck in reply to nicola_sydney

@nicola_sydney I’m afraid my Irony Detect-o-Tron™ is a bit faulty today. I am unsure how seriously to take the questions.

Dear @seamus, can you please explain why you sniff people’s computers? ARE YOU SOME KIND OF BICYCLE SEAT PERVERT? HUH? HUH?

@expectproblems The new computer is a MacBook Pro 15” 2.4GHz i7 quad-core thing.

Mon plan: Make hastily-built website go live; produce “Patch Monday” podcast inc 1300 interview (so it’ll be late); minor plans; collapse.

via TweetDeck

Sadly @kofeyh it can’t be a day off. I still haven’t started the “Patch Monday” podcast yet.

via TweetDeck

After a weekend with unexpected hackers, emergency website building, and replacing a dead computer, let us consider the plan for Monday…

via TweetDeck

No, PR People, it is not an “exclusive invitation” if you emailed it to hundreds or even thousands of people. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

RT @BundyB: Specialised horological devices have been created for just this kind of existential dilemma. [Well fuck me dead!]

via TweetDeck

I believe this is Monday. Given the weird upsets to my work and sleep patterns, this is by no means a fact about which we can be certain.
