@franksting Indeed, I shall be, erm, enjoying working from Perth tomorrow courtesy of the flying kangaroo, no thanks to Canberra.

Friendships are building between those who shared the disruption of . An experience almost as moving as a hashtag, or twibbon.

via TweetDeck

Feeling much refreshed after a quick shower. Dealing with quick schedule changes, then I can finally eat.

Back at the Pan Pacific Hotel.

via TweetDeck

In a cab, halfway back to the Perth CBD.

via TweetDeck

Down to about 100 in the queue for the taxi.

via TweetDeck

Of course is now an issue.

via TweetDeck

The queue is moving very fast though.

via TweetDeck

Oh. Approx 300 people ahead of me in the queue for a cab.

via TweetDeck

I suspect Twitter is geb0rken, but when I tweet the hotel it’d be divine if someone brought booze ‘cos my cards are maxed until tomorrow.

via TweetDeck

I miscounted. NOW it’s 5 parties ahead of me.

via TweetDeck

About 5 parties ahead of me in the queue.

@SnarkyPlatypus The Indian Pacific would be lovely. Yes. Does Qantas run the trains?

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Half-way. I have a story to tell later of a queue-mate’s disastrous holiday. This part is nothing.

via TweetDeck

Past the one-third mark in the queue. Progress.

via TweetDeck

The queue has moved maybe 10 or 15%. People are mostly patient, even joking good-humouredly.

via TweetDeck

People wanting to do redeye to MEL then up to SYD first thing have been moved to another queue. I’ll give that a miss.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus I’ll be here overnight I’d say. Too busy photographing the queue to join it.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

People are re-booking. Those who must urgently be in Sydney or beyond get priority on an overnight flight, I think. We wait quietly.

via TweetDeck

Passengers from QF566 queue for further instructions instagr.am/p/J_-MVIiFvN/

via Instagram

Passengers milling in the gate lounge. No signs of anger, just confusion and uncertainty.

via TweetDeck

We are disembarking the aircraft. An aircraft that the captain reckons is OK to fly.

via TweetDeck

Canberra is full of cunts.

via TweetDeck

Just been told we’re loading more fuel for a fast flight, but waiting for Canberra to give us post-curfew landing dispensation.

via TweetDeck

Discussing the ins and outs of the Sydney Airport Curfew Act, the post-2300 shoulder period.

via TweetDeck

Still sitting in the ground. Cabin crew tell me they could still make up time but I reckon they’re all on drugs. MOAR PRETZELS!

via TweetDeck

Engineers currently in hold investigating.

via TweetDeck

This is serious. They’re handing out pretzels.

via TweetDeck

Flight was scheduled to arrive in Sydney at 2230, just half an hour before curfew. We’re more than 30 mins behind our 1615 AWST departure.

via Cloudhopper

Speculation is that it was something moving in the hold below us, just aft if the wing. I’m in 44G.

via Cloudhopper

Transmitters back on. Our Qantas A330-200 is back in the bay. While taxiing some crew and pax heard a crack / bang sound. Techs investig …

via Cloudhopper

Transmitters off. See you in Sydney in about 4 hours.

via Cloudhopper

All this shit is obviously a lot funnier in your own heads.

via Janetter for Mac

So I’m fixing a problem with a shell script while waiting for my flight to start boarding. I need professional medical help.

via Janetter for Mac

Exit row. Score!

via TweetDeck

Checkout was all too efficient. Awaiting the airport shuttle.

via TweetDeck

Right. Time to check out and get the shuttle bus to the airport. That will prevent me throwing the desk out of the 11th floor window.

RT @decryption: ah, but does it disrupt the industry? [Yes, and it does so in a way that changes the game in a transformative revolution.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to decryption

I also find that the corporate bumph lists the Big Name Companies he’s worked for, but doesn’t say anything about his engineering work.

via Janetter for Mac

Preparing for an interview tomorrow, I discover that the vendor’s product “redefines” the categoruy. Just like every other vendor’s product.

via Janetter for Mac

@daveyk317 Twitter would have been thinking that they wanted power users using code they controlled, not something that might block ads.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to daveyk317

@daveyk317 My pleasure. Just be aware that old TweetDeck is now unmaintained software. No-one’s watching to fix any holes that are found.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to daveyk317

@therevmountain I doubt it has immediate impact on me or what I do. I prefer not to fill my life with it. A summary down the track will do.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to therevmountain

@therevmountain I’m guessing you’re referring to whatever happened in Canberra. I filtered it out immediate I saw the headless chickens.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to therevmountain

Suffused with a sudden, deep sense of cynicism.

via Janetter for Mac

@daveyk317 FWIW, I just scanned that TweetDeck .AIR file with Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac andit found nothing. [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac

@daveyk317 Really? I just link to oldapps.com/tweetdeck.php?… so that’s where you headed? What AV do you use?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to daveyk317

@AndySHastings Apart from the Instagram filter, there’s reflections in the window. And a scratched-up lens. So it’s all quality imagery.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to AndySHastings

@daveyk317 The Adobe AIR-based TweetDeck, the one before Twitter rewrote it? stilgherrian.com/internet/twitt…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to daveyk317

@BernardK Ta for that, but I won’t be going to anything at 0730 when my flight only arrives at 2230. And I’m already over-booked this week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@BernardK I have no idea what you’re talking about. That’d be a “No”, I guess.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

Sun plan: Un-mess my messed-up schedule, I think; 1615 AWST QF566 PER-SYD; 2230 AEST arrive Sydney, Qantas willing; get to hotel, collapse.

via Janetter for Mac

Sunday? Oh, I suppose…
