@ioerror Good to meet you (briefly) earlier. I shall doubtless harass you at a suitable juncture in the coming days.

So that involved pig, chocolate, rice, sauterne, riesling, very nice pig in fact conversation and detriment.

“My God, it’s full of geeks.”

@hornmaths Thanks, I think I will pop out to make sure I have thew latest details and make human contact etc.

I have checked in to the Sovereign Park Motor Inn, Ballarat. It seems quite pleasant and the staff are lovely.

@bsains Hah! Well what I REALLY need right now is a smartphone whose battery lasts all day. Was off-grid for a while there.

via TweetDeck

@zerogeewhiz Well I dunno, I would’ve had to make up facts and stuff. You may have had actual facts.

via TweetDeck in reply to zerogeewhiz

Dear folks, it’ll take me an hour or so to check in to accommodation etc. Where should I head after 1700? Uni to register? Or…?

via TweetDeck

@zerogeewhiz Say what? Which “they” is this and what have they roped you into doing?

via TweetDeck in reply to zerogeewhiz

Should it be of interest, I’m at the George Hotel, Ballarat, until I plan out the rest of my day.

via TweetDeck

Arriving at Ballarat.

Pro tip: Uploading media files from a moving train in rural Victoria is fraught with difficulty.

via TweetDeck

Gosh, views on Victoria’s trains are certainly mixed. Ta for the feedback, useful and otherwise. ;)

via TweetDeck

As an aside, how come Victoria has proper trains?

via TweetDeck

The 1407 departs Southern Cross station for Wendaree, but I’ll alight at Ballarat. If you’re not sick of me telling you yet.

via TweetDeck

So, the “Patch Monday” podcast is recorded. I’ll mix and upload it on the train, which departs in 18 minutes. The plan is kinda working.

via TweetDeck

Angry with technology.

via TweetDeck

@Richardrichar16 I’ve made enquiries about streaming, but no reply yet. The Greens are organising the event. I’m just a muppet.

via TweetDeck

Recording the podcast in a pub with the cricket on in the background works for you, right?

via TweetDeck

It’s true, @gusworldau, beer and food is easier. But the Royal Melbourne Hotel seems to be providing all that I need.

via TweetDeck

Arriving Southern Cross station. About to search for electricity. And, potentially, lunch and a cleansing ale.

via TweetDeck

@jdub Yeah but you’ll give me shit anyway. I have resigned myself to that.

via TweetDeck in reply to jdub

No, @jplonie, listening to my podcasts does not make you a victim of an online scam. Ahem. You can trust me.

via TweetDeck

So when I turn up at with a MacBook Pro as my work machine, will I be treated as an outcast?

via TweetDeck

Australasian Consumer Fraud Task Force is surveying you lot what have been victims of an online scam. arseh.at/qiz

Sensible Plan #24676: Do not start performing hardware tests while running off battery on a moving bus.

via TweetDeck

Ta for the linkage to the Apple Hardware Test, @BeauGiles, I’d wondered where the hell that all went. arseh.at/qix

via TweetDeck

Oh, good ‘ol memtest, eh? Thanks @sirneggles @Wyld, my past has come back to haunt me.

via TweetDeck

I’m starting to think this MacBook Pro has dodgy RAM. What’s the memtest thingy du jour for OS X these days?

via TweetDeck

RT @PointZeroOne: While you’re in Melb, you gonna goto efa.org.au/2012/01/08/war… [Yep, I’m covering that event for @zdnetaustralia

via TweetDeck

Too weird and annoying. Will head into the CBD to record the podcast at a place with power outlets. Where would that be, locals?

via TweetDeck

Grrrr, I meant, Android. FTL.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… Segfaults when launching various apps on my MacBook Pro? Here…

via TweetDeck

Thanks for the welcome, everyone. I’m only here in Melbourne long enough to do the podcast and head to Ballarat.

via TweetDeck

@thetowncrier I’m bot sure if I’ll have time to pop in today, but def Mon-Tue next week.

via TweetDeck in reply to thetowncrier

@jonoabroad I’m completely sober. It’s only 1000.

via TweetDeck in reply to jonoabroad

@antoniodini I’m on the way to Ballarat in rural Victoria (90 mins train from Melbourne) to cover Linux.conf.au … from tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to antoniodini

Touchdown MEL.

via TweetDeck

Transmitters off. See you in another state.

DJ820 SYD-MEL, seat 14F on this little 737-800, so I will be rescuing the rest of them. Giggle.

via TweetDeck

Folks, when they say “boarding shortly”, there’s no need to go and stand over THERE like some sort of livestock. Still time for more gin.

via TweetDeck

That rescheduled boarding time was a bit of a lie. Is anyone surprised?

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh it’s anything in and out of Sydney gets delayed. The airport is full. Also, our aircraft only just arrived at the gate.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Did I mention the 10-minute delay? I don’t think I did, but it’s hardly worth mentioning. Yet.

via TweetDeck

And we’re through security. Time to find electricity and eat my sandwich.

via TweetDeck

Goodness me. There’s a Virgin staffer who looks just like @lukehopewell except more earnest.

via TweetDeck

Ah no problem, it’s just a full flight so do I mind an exit row. I most certainly do not!

via TweetDeck

Uhoh. Please see guest services for assistance with your check-in.

via TweetDeck

@Melissa_Moyle Both interest and annoyance. It was supposed to be a straightforward travel day but the podcast has to be done too now.

via TweetDeck in reply to Melissa_Moyle

@SulphurCocky Well, I don’t have a fixed home atm, I shuttle between Wentworth Falls, Sydney and travel for work. MacBook Pro is the studio.

via TweetDeck in reply to SulphurCocky

Mobile: Avoiding the rain and getting a train to Sydney airport.
