Why is @mpesce standing in front of a green screen when there is nothing being keyed onto it?

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus BUT THAT IS NOT UNTIL SUNDAY AND @mpesce HAS ALREADY SOILED THE ENTIRE THING IT IS JUST OUTRAGEOUS WHAT WILL I DO?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

So between now and midday Monday I must write three articles, produce one podcast, fly to Sydney and appear at Sydney Writers Festival.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I suspect there’s a rather uncomfortable truth of pr0n that people like to dance around. [Shall I find a photo of that?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@R_Chirgwin I am always helpful, especially when it comes make sure people hear what you said.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

RT @jpwarren: @stilgherrian Did you forget how a corkscrew works? [No, remember that TVC for the beer with the woman?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jpwarren

Yep, I did just speak with @marcfennell for more than an hour. Mobile phones don’t cause brain tumours, so that’s OK then.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

My life gets increasingly weird.

via Janetter for Mac

@domknight What @marcfennell says is true, remember the spontaneity of @891adelaide nights when I produced them, shortly before WWII.

via TweetDeck in reply to domknight

@marcfennell Sure. I’ve got nothing else happening but watching my computer melt down in a glorious VM thrash thanks to Kiss and a lizard.

via TweetDeck in reply to marcfennell

@marcfennell Oh dear God, well, you might as well call me now given that @domknight has prevented me from being able to sleep early.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to marcfennell

@domknight Thank you for that. I suspect the chances of @marcfennell and I comparing notes before we go on stage is, well, about nil.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to domknight

@jclacherty “Unwilling to pay the cost of secure systems” is almost universal, alas. We are so fucked.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OaaSvc

Oh bother, @domknight, I should’ve got you to plug my SWF panel “iSpy”on Sunday. swf.org.au/component/opti…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @The_Knuckle: So who won the Symantec Trip to San Francisco, sorry, New York? [NFI, sorry. I was otherwise occupied.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to The_Knuckle

@jclacherty There IS good work to fix those industrial control systems and other embedded systems, yes. Will it be enough, I wonder…

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OaaSvc

What @domknight and I didn’t get around to talking about, “Russian crims evade transaction profiling” zdnet.com.au/russian-crims-…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @jeamland I do wish you guys would stop telling me things like that. I do try to stay respectable.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@domknight Nah I was enjoying it too, and it helped me clarifiy my thoughts about the whole event. And no plans for me, so it was perfect.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to domknight

Hah! Cheers, @domknight. I’d guessed we’d be talking for, oh, 10 mins. Half an hour later… ;) Hope we didn’t baffle ‘em too much.

via Janetter for Mac

On hold for ABC radio (digital nationally ‘cept Perth) talking , cybercrime, cyberwar with @domknight. Listen? abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

Everywhere except Perth, @domknight? Fark! AUSTRALIA, YOU ARE MY INFOSEC BITCH!

via Janetter for Mac

via Janetter for Mac

I’m in my hotel room, clearing my mind before my 2020 AEST radio spot with @domknight. Looking for the stream now.

via Janetter for Mac

@adamson “Go home”? I’m in Queensland. I can’t go home.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adamson

I’m on ABC @702sydney and NSW talking , cybercrime, cyberwar with @domknight at 2020 AEST, listen at abc.net.au/sydney/

via Janetter for Mac

So, the editor still doesn’t like my story. They think my brain has imploded. I’ve been told to sleep on it and try again. Beer!

via TweetDeck

Article revised. Holding my breath and propping up my self esteem.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. The article didn’t survive first contact with the editor. Rewriting now…

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “I feel like I never want to drink again.”

via Janetter for Mac

Thing, with words in it, filed for @zdnetaustralia. Now, back to recording a few people before they disappear.

via Janetter for Mac

“Cybercrime golden age over in two years?” Eugene Kaspersky reckons so, writes @mukimu zdnet.com.au/cybercrime-gol…

via Janetter for Mac

People are in the Speed Debating session but, as far as I can tell, there’s no speed so I’m back in the media work room, writing.

via Janetter for Mac

Wandering around, grabbing people for quick podcast interviews. you one of the people I wanted to grab? Ping me.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently they’re doing security on firewalls now.

via Janetter for Mac

Susan Landau is of course making me feel increasingly grumpy that Australia does not have, like, a Bill of Rights and stuff.

via Janetter for Mac

S Landau: “I’d like to talk about the Fourth Amendment, which is something we have and you guys don’t.” INDEED. PLS FIX, NICOLA!

via Janetter for Mac

We should be right, @bigmac. If the OS says “secure” on the box it will be. History has proven that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bigmac

So, the lovely, delightful Mr Kaspersky is describing how he’d hack a cruise missile in flight and… well, a World of Unicorns!

via Janetter for Mac

Damage to economy globally, just from malware-based criminal attacks (not spam etc), $100+ billion. [citation needed]

via Janetter for Mac

@bleeters Eugene Kaspesky is saying this. YOU tell him to leave.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to bleeters

Eugene shows ecommerce site for hiring time on botnets, you get refunded for the zombies that get cleaned out.

via Janetter for Mac

A 700k-computer botnet could wipe Australia off the internet, “once you connect to the internet”.

via Janetter for Mac

Note, says Eugene, that criminal hackers speak Russian, Spanish etc. Hacktivsts speak English, German etc. “Internesting split.”

via Janetter for Mac

A n y t i m e y o u ’ d l i k e t o g e t t o s o m e c o n t e n t , E u g e n e …

via Janetter for Mac

Eugene Kaspersky is currently explaining that we use computers to run the world, sometimes via the internet. DID YOU KNOW THIS?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @NickHodgeMSFT: Did you order the cows to do this? is.gd/2JANVr [These are not the cows you’re looking for.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NickHodgeMSFT

“Finally you [Australia] wil have the internet as well,” says Eugene Kaspersky.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mukimu: This morning is full of issues. [And the morning still has hours to go… ARE YOU READY, PLANET EARFH?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

@GreenJ No no no. The Wiggles are selling their Facebook shares so they can invest in Amanda Palmer’s new song on Kickstarter.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

Can anyone in Surry Hills confirm… concrete barriers and anti @MargaretSimons Gatling guns being wheeled into Holt Street?

via Janetter for Mac

So, attendees, this 22yo arrested last night with 18 dodgy credit cards. Crime of the Century? police.nsw.gov.au/news/media_rel…

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, @derekbradley, I’m sure there’s a time when, if I’d suggested Donna Summer was one of your heroes, you’d have punched me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbradley

HAHAHAHAHA! “Stilgherrian says in his Podcast lionising Dennis Shanahan…” franksting.net.au/2012/05/18/our… Lovely work, @franksting!

via Janetter for Mac

In a very real sense, @BernardKeane is the first swallow of summer. (No, that’s not a gay reference.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

BernardKeane Richard Wilkins reporting Gordon Sumn…. oh, never mind.

GreenJ ‘she really defined diva long before people knew what the word meant’ … morons mourn donna summer

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 7:32 AM, May 18th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

SnarkyPlatypus If you’re going to pay homage to Donna Summer, listen to full 17 min version of “Love To Love You” & take a drink everytime you hear a moan.

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 7:32 AM, May 18th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I’m guessing that if I head down for breakfast now the restaurant will be pretty much empty.

via Janetter for Mac

@smperris I don’t think that means what you think it means.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

RT @dahowlett: Confession time. I ate at Panda Express Orlando Airport. I enjoyed it. [I always knew there was something wrong with you.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dahowlett

Fri plan: Day 3 of 2012 conference.auscert.org.au/conf2012/ wherein I record podcast interviews and finish writing at least one thing; TGIF.

via Janetter for Mac

John Pilger and Germaine Greer living together in a SEKRIT CAVE? That’s an OARSUM premise for a sitcom, @ataraxite! THEY COULD SOLVE CRIMES!

via Janetter for Mac

Obviously you cannot infer from this that McAfee is so incompetent that they do not notice information flowing on the internet.

via Janetter for Mac

Around this time yesterday I asked McAfee for some more McAfee jelly beans. I would like to thank AVG for bringing me some.

via Janetter for Mac

Is John Pilger still a thing?

via Janetter for Mac

Assessing my place in the world. I managed to get a few hours of sleep. The Pain levels have moderated. I should be more productive today.

via Janetter for Mac

I’m exhausted now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @sufistikat: @stilgherrian THINNER MAKE ME THINNER [THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT YOU LOOK FABULOUS!]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rachwriteswords

The best feature of the internet is that if you shout about it on Twitter for long enough it fixes all the things.

via Janetter for Mac

Well, the site is delivering pages. It only memory-bloats when I try to edit a post. I’ll deal with it later. I have work to do.

via Janetter for Mac

“root access alert from 1.138.REDACTED (AU/Australia/-)” YES I KNOW IT IS ME YOU ARSEHAT I AM GOING TO TEACH YOU HOW TO ADD INTEGERS!

via Janetter for Mac

67,108,864 + 83 > 268,435,456 THIS IS HOW PHP DOES ARITHMETIC WHAT EVEN AND THEY WONDER WHY THE HACKERS ARE WINNING THE INTERNET IS A JOKE!

via Janetter for Mac

Oh look! “memory_limit = 256M”, eh? WELL WHY THE FUCK ARE YOU TELING ME WHAT YOU TOLD ME IN THE PREVIOUS TWEET YOU LYING LIAR OF A LIAR?

via Janetter for Mac

“Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 67108864 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 83 bytes) in REDACTED.” Oh, I am so in the mood for this.

via Janetter for Mac

So to recap. I’m trapped at a Gold Coast resort with infosec geeks, cops, spooks, lawyers and the like for a third day. They drink.

via Janetter for Mac

IT IS FRIDAY SO YOU SHOULD BE AWAKE AND ALERT NOW.
