I think I might collapse now and then have an early start. That usually works much better for me. Ciao.

I do not understand the reference to cards and numbers, @maldamkar @captain_beef

via TweetDeck

Thanks, @chrisbrownie @chrisjrn @laurenetrim @bernietb @bleeters, and anyone else I missed in my blurry scrollback. Glad a bed is nearby.

via TweetDeck

Long hot shower achieved.

via TweetDeck

Hotel achieved.

via TweetDeck

Judging people.

via TweetDeck

RT @gevauden Foxtel seems to be made up of weight loss shows and shows about cake.[Fair, balanced.]

via TweetDeck

Train achieved.

via TweetDeck

@j_hutch @NewtonMark You’re looking for the annual report in the Telecommunications Interception Act, link on my @zdnetaustralia yarn.

via TweetDeck

Touchdown Sydney.

via TweetDeck

Transmitters off.

via TweetDeck

Bravo to @VirginAustralia staff for staying bright and cheerful after what has obviously been a shitful day at MEL.

via TweetDeck

Win. Boarding. See you in Sydney.

via TweetDeck

DJ879 starting to board, finally. With luck, some other indignant, ignorant passenger didn’t hear our gate change, and I’ll have their seat.

via TweetDeck

Loud, indignant but primarily ignorant woman loudly and indignantly complains they should’ve told her the gate had changed. They did, lots.

via TweetDeck

@chrisbrownie Oh head over here to DJland! Lots of tires, sweaty and disgruntled people to watch!

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisbrownie

Part of the chaos, I’m told, is that at least one @JetstarAirways flight MEL-SYD was cancelled and people are all over the shop.

via TweetDeck

@djon3s Trust me, I won’t tell a soul.

via TweetDeck

Looks like @VirginAustralia has been having a messy day MEL-SYD. No wonder staff look frazzled. That and 34C heat. bit.ly/w4Ignx

via TweetDeck

@djon3s Ah, no, I didn’t try creating a tunnel. I’ll remember that for next time. Thanks for the reminder.

via TweetDeck in reply to djon3s

RT @smperris: In Australia? _That_ many virgins? Did Gina Reinhart open up an open-cut virgin mine in the Kimberly or something?

via TweetDeck

New Australian media outlet The Global Mail says it’s launching soon. Videos from team at www.theglobalmail.org and I’ll check them later.

via TweetDeck

Aiming at DJ879 MEL-SYD, scheduled 1830, now delayed to 1900. For the time being. Hoping the @VirginAustralia gods sacrifice enough virgins.

via TweetDeck

Also, Melbourne Airport, the SSL certificate on apc.aptilo.com is expired. Fix it. Also, you owe me a refund ‘cos I couldn’t connect.

via TweetDeck

Hey @chrisjrn @adamnelson @NickHodgeMSFT the flight is still overbooked by one. Delaydd to 1855 departure. I’ll be checking shortly.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, RI in this terminal is worth the wait.

via TweetDeck

Efficient Paul at @VirginAustralia desk has me on standby for the 1830 flight. See how we go.

via TweetDeck

Arriving at MEL. Stand by for stupidity update.

via TweetDeck

RT @networkjanitor: It depends whose stupidity ;) [Oh. Well that answers that question. Botheration (this calls for strong language).]

via TweetDeck

Does travel insurance cover gross stupidity?

via TweetDeck

@RealNickHodge Alas, I just booked non-refundable accommodation in SYD for tonight. Let’s see what @VirginAustralia’s options are.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge “Microsoft research reveals nearly 4 in 5 news stories are sourced from Twitter.”

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

Sigh. That’ll teach me to get so little sleep on intense work trips that I skip all not-editorial emails.

via TweetDeck

Or maybe, @PointZeroOne @AndySHastings, I can ask the driver to go really really really really really really really really really fast.

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn @VirginAustralia Do I admit it’s my fault? I put the flight incorrectly into my diary and assumed I was correct. Pooramadrama!

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

Oh. Um. So, DJ859 isn’t actually 1800. It’s 1600. It is now 1720. Do you think I’ve missed it, @VirginAustralia?

via TweetDeck

So, being on this bus rather than the previous bus is cutting it rather fine for the 1800 flight. This could be interesting.

via TweetDeck

My mobile internets may fail at any moment.

via TweetDeck

and not paranoia, honestly.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Cab to Southern Cross station; but to Melbourne airport; DJ859 MEL-SYD.

via TweetDeck

@reghunt Oh, sorry, I’m just rushing about. I’ll be posting something in terms of a reaction soon enough.

via TweetDeck in reply to reghunt

@chrisjrn Erm, some of us are actually media professionals of long standing and know how to properly license the material we use.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

2-for-1 drinks vouchers FTW!

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @jonoabroad “Boxed gin”? WTF? No, a pleasant young women in a schmick uniform opened a tab and ask for my choice of gin.

via TweetDeck

@reghunt I don’t know that the Google+ policy change is much of a help for me personally. And that announcement is patronising to the max.

via TweetDeck in reply to reghunt

Thanks for the photo tips, @KathyReid @SuperRoach @chrisjrn, I’ll be compiling the collection tonight and published first thing.

via TweetDeck

Appreciating being brought a gin and tonic because I looked thirsty, even though the bar hasn’t actually opened yet.

via TweetDeck

@case_pres Oh no you must dilute my Twitterstream to homeopathic proportions to avoid damage.

via TweetDeck in reply to case_pres

Lunch done. Returning to the cool of the hotel to assemble that photo story. Air conditioned taxi FTW.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Bend and stretch / reach for the stars /there goes Jupiter / here comes Mars. There, that should rid you of your earworm.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Random coffee achieved, now traversing RI-rich environment toward lunch.

via TweetDeck

And security have let me back out.

via TweetDeck

I have cleared security. Kinda.

via TweetDeck

So, this cab driver asks me a bunch of daft questions, I end up finding a route for him, THEN he turns on GPS. Driver 519867 taxi M-6043.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Check out; quick snack; find my way to Treasury Place; 1100 meeting.

via TweetDeck

Preparing (slowly) to emerge into another 34C Melbourne day. I hope my 1100 meeting person likes me sweaty.

via TweetDeck

@normative: Every time an obtuse columnist reduces copyright criticism to “everything should just be free,” an angel gets chlamydia”

via TweetDeck

@chrisjrn I’ll send you a mix tape of @ioerror’s fucks later. Oh. That sounds wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to chrisjrn

@sroc Orly? I happen to be logged into a Google account elsewhere, so I didn’t see that. I’ll investigate later.

via TweetDeck in reply to sroc

@SnarkyPlatypus: Thinking of kinky acts with a PR person involving a muzzle.” Yeah I know which one you mean. He’s OK though.

via TweetDeck

@bleeters Did you not see the “+”? Google is not Google+. Llamas are not frogs.

via TweetDeck in reply to bleeters

If there’s any Linux.conf.au photos I simply MUST see, please let me know. I’m compiling a photo story for @zdnetaustralia.

via TweetDeck

Editor’s response to pitch: “We decided Google+ is not a thing and we didn’t care enough about it to care about any of its dodgy practices.”

via TweetDeck

Direct link to that Google+ names policy announcement, with comments coming in. bit.ly/zGmcjy

via TweetDeck

RT @joshrowe: Google+ makes changes to their naming policy josh.tw/zJLyrh [Yet begins by repeated marginalisation of the different.]

via TweetDeck

@thetowncrier It strikes me that Shakespearian references will influence few swinging voters at Penrith. What a daft strategy.

via TweetDeck in reply to thetowncrier

@SnarkyPlatypus:Oh dear, another one trapped in Miranda Devine’s tentacles. She does it too well.” [Seen her shokushu goukan? 触手強姦FTW!]

via TweetDeck

@timwattsau @R_Chirgwin OIC. I’ll STFU then.

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

Miranda Devine is “official fluffer, foghorn of Liberal misery”? Oh dear. bit.ly/ylnqDi I just thought “disingenuous troll”.

via TweetDeck

You probably shouldn’t listen to the “Patch Monday” podcast yet. It’s still the version that has one of @ioerror’s fucks left in it.

via TweetDeck

@timwattsau @R_Chirgwin But that’s OK, it’s not like you have to work with words for a living or anyt… oh wait. [smirks] Sorry. In a mood.

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

@timwattsau @R_Chirgwin No, it’s grammatically a well-formed sentence. You knew the word to choose by meaning. You just spelled it wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

I won’t say this is the worst Twitter client I’ve ever used. I could be trying to use Photoshop, for instance.

via TweetDeck

@timwattsau Fuelling the fire, you know that spelling isn’t grammar, right?

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

Tue plan: Writing, supposedly; 1100 meeting, CBD; lunch with old friend; visit Crikey office; gap; 1800 DJ859 MEL-SYD; remainder TBA.

via TweetDeck

@timwattsau You cop a lot of PR operatives? How odd. Or did you mean “flak”? Inquiring minds…

via TweetDeck in reply to TimWattsMP

@LucasJamesAU: I thought Twitter’s plan for tweetdeck was for you to use the web interface.” Orly? Feels like it’s for me to impale myself.

via TweetDeck

BTW, your suggestions for the three notches beyond clueless are rather lovely and shall be recorded for posterity later. Keep ‘em coming.

via TweetDeck

It’s like the whole thing was designed by someone whose only knowledge of Twitter was gained from reading Mirande Devine columns and gin.

via TweetDeck

So now I have to wade through the 2000 chunks of jetsam I follow to find what my friends are saying. Fuckin’ fantastic. No offence.

via TweetDeck

You can see why Twitter doesn’t have a strong presence in Japan. All their developers whould have to commit seppuku. Daily at 1030 and 1530.

via TweetDeck

And then, Twitter, you have the temertity to put a “1” before the decimal point of the version number? You fucking frauds!

via TweetDeck

Oh FFS, Twitter! You put “TweetDeck” on this thing, have it log in to tweetdeck.com, but then don’t load my lists and filters? WTF?

via TweetDeck

I used the word “clueless” in a sentence yesterday. What are the next three notches beyond that?

via TweetDeck

Forced to used Twitter’s TweetDeck ‘cos my AIR one is crashing. Whoever “designed” this is a fuckwit. Engineered for DM fail. Arsehats.

via TweetDeck

Playing with fire, @mpesce. But then I suppose that can be so much fun too.

via TweetDeck

Disgruntled. Fair warning.

via TweetDeck

Chewsday. Thus is continues.
