Fading, going thud.

Excellent. I’m still Google’s #7 result for “used knickers”.

via TweetDeck

Make the bad man stop…

via TweetDeck

Here is the factoid related to that comment, @RealNickHodge arseh.at/nd0

via TweetDeck

Now now, @RealNickHodge, you know the special relationship I have with that song. youtu.be/NzDUcPfZoJ4 Ask Christian Kerr.

via TweetDeck

You people should have more respect for those of us who actually had to grow up in the 1970s. IT WAS VERY DIFFICULT TO UNDERSTAND.

via TweetDeck

Sorry, @RealNickHodge, balding man with big nose is not “better optics”. youtu.be/LhGJvGhIzaw

via TweetDeck

True, @glengyron @expectproblems, that is also a very SPESHUL video. youtu.be/tkOZWW3-EAU

via TweetDeck

I see your early 1990s Dick Smith TVC, @SoYoureJayce @ozdj youtu.be/kNqwdosmMJw and raise you this, 1982. youtu.be/JbCr15KkBxY

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems Trust me, the game has very SPESHUL Easter Eggs. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@SnarkyPlatypus Are you trying to confuse me with sensible explanations?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@expectproblems IIRC you’re not qualified to answer the question.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

But the answer seems to be, in a nutshell, yes. Thank you, @cjjosh @_darrensmith @chrisbrownie

via TweetDeck

Cub. Not cub. There’s a difference there too.

via TweetDeck

So is some sort of gay tongue-based equivalent to the Mile High Cub? [confused]

via TweetDeck

@roamz Oh I’d certainly have a squizz, but I’ll admit it’s probably not the sort of thing I’d use myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to roamz

RT @viveka: In person, @stilgherrian is uncannily like John Steed. arseh.at/ncr [Miss? I’ll have some of what he’s having.]

via TweetDeck

Wentworth Falls, as you say @R_Chirgwin, does not rock after dark. A gentle swaying, if you’re lucky, followed by a desperate heaving.

via TweetDeck

@roamz It’s OK though. I don’t have an iPhone, so I’m safe. ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to roamz

Oh bugger. The chicken is way too salty, to the point of being nausea-inducing. Resorting to vodka. Which goes nicely in ginger beer.

via TweetDeck

@roamz Oh Christ no! The less I know the safer I’ll be.

via TweetDeck in reply to roamz

RT @cinderella_oz Shopping in Wentworth Falls after 5pm on a Sunday evening? good luck with that. [Oh. True. Bottle shop, chicken, done.]

via TweetDeck

I am about to arrive at Wentworth Falls. Once there, I’ll decide about shopping and eating and things.

via TweetDeck

@miss_shiny The problem with elephants, though, is that they eat rather a lot and poo rather a lot.

via TweetDeck in reply to miss_shiny

@smperris @RealNickHodge Thank you. @smh did pay me to pontificate once. Well, they haven’t paid me yet, but I think that’s my fault.

via TweetDeck

RT @no_filter_Yamba: Does that mean all your falling is done in a forest? [Sadly, it doesn’t. I’d even settle for a copse.] /cc @Stacey0

via TweetDeck

@jplonie Apropos of your question the other day, yes, I will give you a screw. I’ll bring same to Sydney on my next visit.

via TweetDeck in reply to jplonie

RT @RealNickHodge: You can rent an Elephant for your future Hindu Wedding. arseh.at/ncq [Bonus.]

via TweetDeck

RT @miss_shiny: I always imagine you’re crossing the Nepean on an elephant. [o-one ever gives me an elephant. Or even lends me one.]

via TweetDeck

@jasonlangenauer I have fog too, you know, and it’s full of trains. flic.kr/p/aGbttr

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge I am The Future, you disrespectful wally. TREAT ME WITH THE RESPECT I DESERVE!

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

3. On Thursday night I’m on the panel for the @media140au gig in Sydney, Digital Anonymity. arseh.at/nai

via TweetDeck

2. I’m covering the Trend Micro Canberra Cloud Security Conference on Wednesday. Very excitement. arseh.at/mjl

via TweetDeck

1. I shall be in Canberra on Tuesday afternoon and evening, and it’s likely that I’ll have time to interact with the locals.

via TweetDeck

I have an interesting week ahead, which I shall now re-plug (despite an inadequate attempted troll against me) in three tweets.

via TweetDeck

Is there some reason @riskybusiness hasn’t been hog-tied and gagged yet? I mean, just for the pleasure of it, if nothing else.

via TweetDeck

Editing conversations about fiddling with DNS to block “bad things” reminds me of Casey Donovan and 2004. arseh.at/nch

via TweetDeck

Crossing the Nepean.

via TweetDeck

I have never existed, @Stacey0.

via TweetDeck

@dmflower Thank you. Well, thank Sydney Light Rail for their efficiency. And I even for one of the podcast interviews edited before Penrith.

via TweetDeck in reply to dmflower

Mobile. No phone battery. I am invisible.

via TweetDeck

And… the interview with @declanm is recorded. Now, to dash to the CBD, get a cable, not get rained on, and catch a train.

via TweetDeck

Patiently waiting for my 1600 interviewee, and slowly realising that the 1718 train from Central is an unrealistic fantasy.

via TweetDeck

Delegate, @SnarkyPlatypus? The only bit I can delegate is cable-fetching. Are you volunteering? Hand me the cables at Central.

via TweetDeck

Realising that once I finish recording at 1630 there’s little time left to get to the CBD, buy cables and catch the 1718 train from Central.

via TweetDeck

Well that’s Mr @BernardKeane recorded. One hour until I record @declanm and then it’s cable-chasing and train-catching.

via TweetDeck

“Patch Monday” podcast will be a good’un. Talking SOPA arseh.at/nca and copyright wars with @declanm, @BernardKeane, maybe others.

via TweetDeck

@ForsakenDAemon The word “catostrophe” is lovely and I shall try to remember it.

via TweetDeck in reply to ForsakenDAemon

RT @safzoro: So even under the current laws, you do have conjugal rights. [Yep, but can’t get married.]

via TweetDeck

Earlier today I was thinking that at this time I shall have had laksa, and now I have had laksa. That’s conjugation, right there.

via TweetDeck

RT @ForsakenDAemon: A catostrophe! [No, a laksa.]

via TweetDeck

Transferring to the SEKRIT duck laksa venue, where I’ll be out of contact ‘cos my phone is dead until I can get a new micro-USB cable.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @RealNickHodge At one level, The World always wins. At another, it doesn’t.

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge Somone needs to distract attention from the tedious The Australian vs The World narrative.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge I’m not sure that I ever had a Journalist License. I am a fraud.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

Noticing that I committed an Apostrophe Crime in my last tweet. Sorry.

via TweetDeck

@leslienassar Yes, LinkedIn has become as bad as Facebook with it’s “sharing”. Still, 90% of my life is “shared:” online anyway, so heck…

via TweetDeck in reply to leslienassar

@expectproblems Maybe you just need to be more creative, or at least inclusive, when itemising your experiences.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems Well you can also pimp yourself as filmmaker. That said, I do understand that’s not how it’s traditionally done.

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems I can see me using LinkedIn to find interviewees for sorties / podcasts etc. And to pimp my wares. But for normal people…

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

@BernardKeane I sent you an internet letter earlier. An electric one.

via TweetDeck

@expectproblems I was shown how to use LinkedIn for intelligence-gathering, but yeah it’s “business networking” (i.e. the unemployable).

via TweetDeck in reply to expectproblems

Pondering resuming my use of LinkedIn, which I had ceased after their (lack of) privacy idiocy back in August. arseh.at/9ti

via TweetDeck

Noting that “biased” is not the same as “obsessed”. Usually, anyway.

via TweetDeck

RT @thespurofthings: “@stilgherrian starting following @thespurofthings”. WHAT IS THIS BLACK MAGIC. [A lame kind of magic, of little value.]

via TweetDeck

@fat_asian Alas I will have to leave your show and tell for later. I am slowly drifting into work mode now.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@thespurofthings I agree. It’s too early for everything I’ve been involved with today. But what can you do? /cc @fat_asian

via TweetDeck

@fat_asian My life is already one continuous WTF experience. I doubt you could make it much worse.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@fat_asian Well “courtship” and “sexual congress” are kinda along different axes of… um, something. This is also an odd start to the day.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@fat_asian Right. I’ll have to create some sort of chart here. What happens pre first date, then each date, allowables and compulsories.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@declanm Hi there, Gentle Colleague (kinda). I don’t suppose you’d have a few minutes in the next 24 to chat SOPA for a podcast?

via TweetDeck

@fat_asian “Flirt”? I don’t flirt, young man. For me it’s more like some sort of clumsy stumbling into a jelly-wrestling pit.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@fat_asian I daresay you’re not alone in your love [polite version]. Also I’m afraid that really is the worst pun I’ve heard so far today.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

@fat_asian I’m sure that can’t be right. I’m not sure that sentence even makes any sense. Quite possibly I’m not the best person to ask.

via TweetDeck in reply to fat_asian

Oh God no, @R_Chirgwin! Don’t call Geoff Huston, he’ll tell us how the entire internet is falling apart. ;)

via TweetDeck

Is there a technical type who’d like to explain to the podcast punters why SOPA would screw the adoption of DNSSEC?

via TweetDeck

WTF? “Unsupported OS. This recorded Webinar is only available for Windows 2000 or higher.” Gee thanks, Citrix! arseh.at/nbo

via TweetDeck

Sun plan, unordered: Produce “Patch Monday” podcast; buy another micro-USB cable; duck laksa at SEKRIT location; return to Wentworth Falls.

via TweetDeck

RT @EnexTestLab: Rainbows come from the cloud ! [It’s true, they do. And if I never hear the word cloud again I’ll be a happy man.]

via TweetDeck

@mpesce Well, I might put some pants on and have breakfast or something first. Also, must find cable to recharge phone. It’s a busy life.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

@mpesce Ah yes, the politics of the domain name system is A Good Thing. Thanks. Now, how the hell to find relevant talent on a Sunday.

via TweetDeck in reply to mpesce

But are rainbows and unicorns really an IT or Internet-related issue, @mpesce?

via TweetDeck

Starting to wonder what this week’s “Patch Monday” podcast will be about when I record it today. Anyone have any requests?

via TweetDeck

Suddenday. Which hasn’t been all that sudden. It sneaked up. Bastard.

via TweetDeck

New blog post: “Weekly Wrap 76: Slightly more settled, still chaotic” arseh.at/nb1

via TweetDeck

@jg_rat “Hatrabbit” is an excellent word. And yes, I shall worry tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to jg_rat

RT @miss_shiny: Does ‘hat’ mean ‘ass’? [Yes.]

via TweetDeck

Hmmm. These are more fleas than I wish to be encountering just at the moment.

via TweetDeck

Wondering whether I should start thinking about the “Patch Monday” podcast now, or just do one of my Sunday hat-rabbit exercises.
