I’m back at Bunjaree Cottages. is no longer an issue. I’ll deal with the empty gas bottle in the morning after a cof… Oh.

“It doesn’t matter how long you live there, if you’re a farang you’re always a farang,” says the chubby old man with unconvincing hairpiece.

“The traffic is chaos, and there’s no road maps of Bangkok. It’s just the way they do things over there,” he continues.

I’ll be at the pub shortly.

via Janetter for Mac

Do excuse me if I fall silent for a bit. I’ve just been seriously misrepresented in an email to colleagues and I’m pretty fucking furious.

via Janetter for Mac

@dnee All that proves is that cliché is more popular than using accurate words. Which was my entire point.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dnee

“Hackers could decapitate the internet… Nightmare scenario.” Oh FFS, BBC! bbc.co.uk/news/technolog…

via Janetter for Mac

There’s nought wrong with the word “regulator”, @dnee, and it’s more accurate to boot. “Watchdog” is a stale news cliché.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dnee

Tonight on “I’m an Instant Fucking Expert”, the law of false and misleading advertising. SIgh.

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Journalists, you don’t HAVE to use “watchdog” when writing about ACCC, ACMA etc. It doesn’t actually display your wit and clue.

via Janetter for Mac

The Australians United To Kill It With Fire Party? Yeah I’d join that.

via Janetter for Mac

It was long but OK. Ducks are aligned, and the gradual handover to new developers should work just fine.

via Janetter for Mac

Crossing the Nepean. Again.

via Janetter for Mac

Questioning the world of Apple? Does the ACCC realise the trouble it’s in now? PEOPLE ARE GOING TO BLOG ABOUT IT!

via Janetter for Mac

There should not be a place called Doonside.

via Janetter for Mac

Departing Strathfield. Lowering expectations.

via Janetter for Mac

I wonder which sub-species of urbanfag he’s waiting for.

via Janetter for Mac

Those big yellow “no standing” areas on CityRail platforms? Snipers. It’s the only solution. Trust me.

Mind you, given the school I went to…

It’s amazing how young Newington boys become complete and utter little arseholes.

Storm, meet teacup.

I doubt that the success of the Queensland Premier hinges on how many Twitter followers they have.

via TweetDeck

RT @NereadersDigest @chrisjrn @teknetia @theqldpremier @AnnaMBligh @Campbell_Newman Bah. People choose who they follow. No issue.

via TweetDeck

Ah yeah. That’s the way to do it. Head appropriately pulled in.

via TweetDeck

RT @chrisjrn @stilgherrian @teknetia In this case, @theqldpremier was renamed to @AnnaMBligh. And @Campbell_Newman still exists…

via TweetDeck

I’d go further, @teknetia. It should be illegal. Destruction of government records.

via TweetDeck

RT @teknetia I find it retarded when people delete all prior tweets - like @theqldpremier account. It’s like they don’t get it or something!

via TweetDeck

Right. I’ve exhausted my interest in this town for today. I shall now commence my return journey westward and to higher altitudes.

via Janetter for Mac

MT @JohnGunders: @GreenJ Flashblock kills autoplay videos. [Or, I can avoid yet more fiddling and just not go there.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JohnGunders

Most news coverage of “cyber” issues reads like a WWII reporter referring to a Spitfire as “an elaborate mechanical bird”.

via Janetter for Mac

@HappySinger Memory loss is a tragic affliction and the scourge of the elderly.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to HappySinger

@becadroit It’s true. I fail at internet. Sorry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to becadroit

So, there IS a Julie Bishop fan club! Awesome! twitpic.com/91vgkm HT @HappySinger

via Janetter for Mac

@aujdo Heh. Mind you, Fairfax can probably already cross-match my browsing to my identity.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aujdo

You know, “Don’t make fissile material” would have been the obvious solution, but we’re just a tad late to make that decision now.

via Janetter for Mac

So, has the government ever given actual facts about “the threat of nuclear terrorism”, apart from waving it as scary thing?

via Janetter for Mac

Speaking of Julie Bishop, it’s time to tell you all again to Google for “neo-con sex kitten”. I know. I have no shame.

via Janetter for Mac

So, @aujdo, give Fairfax more tracking data in exchange for them being polite? Fuck that. There’s other news outlets. /cc @GreenJ

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aujdo

RT @joshgnosis: @dobes @stilgherrian We may need one of these for Julie Bishop. bit.ly/cD5OVP [“May”? We DO need one.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

Delete “almost” for me. RT @GreenJ: honestly fairfax, those autoplay videos are almost enough to keep me away from your story pages

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

Laughing at politicians who believe they can assess the security implications of network gear by walking around the factory where its made.

RT @feed_the_chooks: “…cynicism is what passes for insight among the mediocre.” Joe Klein [This is PRECISELY why I’m cynical. Oh wait.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to feed_the_chooks

@garthk I continue to be intrigued about what I’m told about and what not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to garthk

@tim_cooke Sure, Yammer is used by all sorts of organisations. But it’s not a “personal use” tool so it doesn’t get much profile.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to tim_cooke

@GreenJ Indeed, you could do worse than talk to @jeamland about Raspberry Pi. He knows about this stuff. Ignore the hygiene issues.

via Janetter for Mac

@MoreThanDanny Hmmm. In NSW restaurants can’t charge for water. Does that mean they’re required to offer water though? Questions to ask!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MoreThanDanny

@charispalmer Well, I do like the idea of “faceless allegations”. Sounds like an eggcorn to me though. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eggcorn

via Janetter for Mac in reply to charispalmer

There was a @Yammer event in Sydney today? I’ve been mushroomed again.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh that’s just wrong.

via TweetDeck

1200 meeting finished. Plan successfully agreed upon. Brain only slightly fried.

via TweetDeck

I wonder if @charispalmer really means “faceless” allegations, or whether the more traditional “baseless” would be better?

So who, specifically, decided that convenient, clean drinking water would no longer be provided in public places?

RT @carolduncan: Macarons are over-rated. Discuss. [What’s to discuss? The macaronoids have some sort of serioius hormonal disorder.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to carolduncan

This +1000! RT @NewtonMark: ACMA is like the Two Ronnies joke about British police armed with truncheons: “STOP! Or… I’ll say STOP again!”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @jplonie: “ ” two of these are not like the other one. [You didn’t see what I just saw.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

That, and on a bright morning after overnight rain the scrubland is just fucking beautiful.

Mobile. I’m walking in to Wentworth Falls this time because bank account WTF and because obesity.

via Janetter for Mac

So, the gas bottle just ran out. While I was under the shower. I’m awake now. Far. Too. Awake. And shivering. And no time to fix and shave.

Congrats (belated) to @BleeplyApp for scoring a Pushstart incubator spot. shoestringlaunch.com/2012/03/pushst… My Oct 2011 profile at zdnet.com.au/bleeply-lets-y…

@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin @Idealaw My understanding is that everything has to be approved by Conroy’s office anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

MT @paulwallbank: A big concern I have with NBNCo is they seem to cherry pick their status as a private or govt org. [Exactly this.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin @Idealaw Lack of transparency has been my constant complaint about NBN being spun out to a separate company.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

@jplonie @R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank @Idealaw I’m coming in late, but don’t vendors have to give source code to DSD under embargo already?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

Tue plan: 0931 train to Sydney, writing en route; 1200 meeting Enmore; meeting CBD; 1723 train back to Wentworth Falls; evening TBA.

@juhasaarinen I don’t think you’re even meant to read the words on BI’s charts. Aren’t they just to make you feel like you’re clever?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@MollieCMYK Hi, but dear God no, I’m not “cool”. Nor, really, in Sydney most of the time but 100km west. You’re in for a big change!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MollieCMYK

Another Apple-masturbatory factoid chart from BI! Without Apple, tech sector profits “off” 3%, whatever “off”means. businessinsider.com/chart-of-the-d…

via Janetter for Mac

@R_Chirgwin @paulwallbank @Idealaw Surely a company can just choose who it does business with? There’s no right to be considered is there?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

Twitter says I’m similar to @GreenJ. Can someone in Melbourne please hand him the razor he’s about to ask for?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m doing The Long Commute today. More detailed plan followed shortly.
