I am back at Wattle Cottage. And, @engochick @middleclassgirl @tweetingtechno, I left the SEKRIT wine reserve where it was. I have my own.

via TweetDeck

Ah, I just discovered the SEKRIT wine reserve!

via TweetDeck

Right. Dark Night mission time. Torch, 300m dirt track, turn off generator, obtain bed linen… This’ll be fun.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin No, you did not read… *I* will rework the copy. I think I can sort this out for you with minimal drama.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @rohmac That said, I also intend to tidy up the website a bit over the next few weeks. The copy needs reworking, I say!

@rohmac Commission? Well, no but I’m kinda the caretaker when @R_Chirgwin isn’t here in exchange for, well, I live here.

via TweetDeck in reply to rohmac

So lovely indeed, @drueyjay @jennyeather @_LeonieGSmith, but if it ever stops raining and we have a bushfire we’re dead meat.

via TweetDeck

Since I’m plugging Wattle Cottage, it looks like this flic.kr/p/9DJnYd and is down this track flic.kr/p/9DJm5Y

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin No! I shall explore properly upstairs later, once I have obtained linen from the storeroom… 300m away down a rain-swept track.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

It’s not too bad tonight, @_LeonieGSmith, down to 10C with a max of 16C and rain tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

Here is the view from the balcony in question, @drueyjay, and from the dining table. flic.kr/p/boPMcV flic.kr/p/9DJDkb

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I chose Wattle Cottage specifically for the view of the birds from the balcony, so if the lyrebird is about I shall find it.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Right. I think I have cheated sufficiently to get the fire going. The wine glass is enormous. Things are progressing well.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin “It’s like kick-starting a bus!” World’s smallest bus! Are you sure you’re pulling it the right way?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin It’s not urgent. The generator started clearly and required minimal brute force.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Note to self: Next time, before walking 300m thru rain to generator shed and 300m back, check if you also need to collect bed linen etc.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin Manual generator start procedure successful. I feel so butch now.

via TweetDeck

Bullaburra. Last stop before Wentworth Falls. 13 minutes late. Wine-buying. Cab-riding. Suitcase-dumping. Battery-checking. Fire-lighting.

via TweetDeck

@NereadersDigest @SnarkyPlatypus I have no idea what you’re talking about.

via TweetDeck

This whole @jimschembri thing has me baffled. arseh.at/szn

via TweetDeck

Pro tip: When a client asks for an invoice to be sent early, it’s because they intend to pay it late.

via TweetDeck

@krcraft Thank you. I was fairly well behaved today though.

via TweetDeck in reply to krcraft

I’m still not sure about “overtopping”.

via TweetDeck

After reading story 16 in today’s @crikey_news I am laughing and laughing and laughing.

via TweetDeck

@piecritic I beg to differ. Apart from the day the Blue Mountains was declared a disaster area this is the only significant delay in a year.

via TweetDeck in reply to piecritic

Mind you, 131500.info says “good service” on the Blue Mountains line. They have their own reality over there. With paisley badgers.

via TweetDeck

It appears that this train is running approximately 14 minutes late because rain.

via TweetDeck

Grab it with your teeth and shake it and shake it and shake it and shake it and shake it and shake it and shake it and shake it good.

via TweetDeck

I do like the 1723 from Central to Lithgow. First stop Parramatta. Second stop Penrith. And then up the hill.

via TweetDeck

@bigmac I suspect I’ll be the one delivering the buzzwords… :/

via TweetDeck in reply to bigmac

@SnarkyPlatypus @saasu I see that I’m the post-lunch pick-me-up. I suppose I should hand out stimulants.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Oh look! The @saasu Cloud Conference 2012 program for 11 May is online! With scary keynotes! arseh.at/szu

via TweetDeck

Fear not, @SisterMorphine, I’m only heading 100km west. That should be just clear of the blast radius.

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite I’ll know on Monday what the week looks like. I suspect an evening late in the week.

via TweetDeck

Somebody please say to me: “Go West, Old Man.”

via TweetDeck

Offering bribes.

via TweetDeck

@ataraxite @sylmobile @SnarkyPlatypus Please keep me informed so I might plan Sydney visits appropriately.

via TweetDeck

Drifting south thru the CBD, eventually in search of electricity, ale, suitcase and train. In that order.

via TweetDeck

The conference gave ended.

via TweetDeck

Fuckin’ big kitchen fire.

via TweetDeck

RT @redneckninja: Firefighters say the smoke above the Sydney CBD is from a kitchen fire on King St. No injuries reported.

via TweetDeck

RT @thespurofthings: @stilgherrian @seamus ING is actually on fire. [So that’s a direct sightline for you?]

via TweetDeck

RT @seamus: There’s just a little smoke at this stage. Definitely seems like something blew out big then burned out quickly.

via TweetDeck

RT @seamus: Looks like its on the Four Points on Sussex? Something exploded followed by fire? arseh.at/szs

via TweetDeck

RT @seamus: WTF? Seriously big fire or explosion in Sydney CBD?? pic.twitter.com/rsQUZBbU

via TweetDeck

Grrrr. I am the Tiger Team.

via TweetDeck

And now @ChrisGatford is showing us how to do break-and-enter without the break bit.

via TweetDeck

He’s been logging the reported A&NZ security incidentsarseh.at/szq6me12

via TweetDeck

I’m fairly sure @ChrisGatford just said he reckons we only hear about 5% of the data breaches that happen.

via TweetDeck

PCI DSS is failing us, says @ChrisGatford. It’s not being enforced. He calls for mandatory data breach disclosure.

via TweetDeck

Hacker @ChrisGatford thanks Sen Conroy for detailing his infotech in the AFR. “You might as well paint a big target on him.”

via TweetDeck

The Australian Army has a new website. army.gov.au

via TweetDeck

So @ChrisGatford goes for lulz, but then complains that the silly mistakes keep on happening.

via TweetDeck

@caseyjohnellis Oh, you’re in the room? I’d better behave myself.

via TweetDeck in reply to caseyjohnellis

Or a World of Warcraft account, which is like wearing two pairs of flares made of different fabrics, and singing Abba.

via TweetDeck

Mind you, this money laundering technique requires having a Second Life account, which is a bit like wearing flares in public.

via TweetDeck

Now Dietmar Kahles said he wasn’t going to show us how to do money laundering but, you know, he is.

via TweetDeck

+10000 RT @jeamland: @glengyron They should totally make @stilgherrian Speaker. But only if they replace the gavel with a shotgun.

via TweetDeck

+100 RT @franksting: I’m still laughing at @bigmac putting his hand up for being on Second Life

via TweetDeck

The report of the independent inquiry into the Australian media is out. So that’s the media sorted then. arseh.at/szo

via TweetDeck

RT @jeamland: Mainly because we can’t get say “The Honourable Stilgherrian” without falling over. [Oh yeah.]

via TweetDeck

I can reveal that I am not a cabinet minister.

via TweetDeck

I’m back at the Marriott Sydney Harbour for … though I’ve been told I’ve missed a couple good sessions. Here we go…

via TweetDeck

Right. Unexpected webby work complete. Time to get my act together and head over to the conference. Today is determined not to go to plan.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Cyber Crime Symposium arseh.at/sze Day 2; return to Wentworth Falls, possibly writing en route; TGIF.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin @sylmobile If there’s no info at 131500 then the trains are not currently affected. I assume. Should I be concerned?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Ah, entries for the Lizzies, the IT Journalism Awards, close today. arseh.at/szd

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin I’m not sure what you mean, but possibly 131500.info?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin So, the son can’t be packaged onto a train? Is he afraid of trains?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Oh hello, Friday. I know you!
