RT @ZenPsycho: Even David Tennant leaving Doctor Who? [Especially that. FFS, it’s a bloody TV program.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ZenSaiyuki

If I were in a relationship with anyone who got misty-eyed over a character leaving a TV series they would be so dumped.

Replug: “5 Conference Tips for PR Professionals”, an instructional video. youtube.com/watch?v=_EtaHB…

via Janetter for Mac

I am full of laksa and excellent ideas.

via Janetter for Mac

Thanks, @ozjimbob, I had seen ifttt.com ages ago but forgot about it. At a glance, it looks like it contains the pieces I need.

via TweetDeck

@Costus That’s the sort of thing, but I imagine bigger pieces exist. Delicious > matching WordPress login came close.

via TweetDeck in reply to Costus

So, I want to create a page, ideally ending up in WordPress, containing all the news stories I tag on a certain topic. I would use…?

via Janetter for Mac

Decided. Quiet dinner in Chinatown, then red wine at the hotel while I plan out my intense work schedule for Sun-Tue and beyond. Mobile.

via Janetter for Mac

Another annoying plug: Me, @TommyTudehope, moderator @marcfennell at Sydney Writers’ Festival tomorrow 2.30pm. Free. swf.org.au/component/opti…

via Janetter for Mac

It would be so easy for me to be passive-aggressive, if I chose to be.

via Janetter for Mac

Wondering what to do for dinner. I shan’t be doing any writing tonight. I’ll focus on that tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen I feel just magnificent, Juha. I could revel in a pig right now. I believe that’s the correct expression. A WHOLE PIG!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@juhasaarinen THERE IS NOTHING “BUNG” ABOUT MY YOUTUDE VIDEO EXCEPT POSSIBLE CONCEIVABLE THE MAN WITH THE SANDWICH.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Giggling in the hotel elevator.

via TweetDeck

The “people” getting on at Circular Quay are, by and large, squawking.

via TweetDeck

To avoid lugging the luggage at Central, I shall loopify to Town Hall.

via TweetDeck

Thank you all the lovely feedback about the video. I’ll watch it properly later, so I can appreciate Man in the Background.

via TweetDeck

I AM WAITING PATIENTLY ON THE RAILWAY STATION PLATFORM BECAUSE IT WILL BE A FEW MINUTES UNTIL THE NEXT TRAIN AND I AM PATIENT.

@juhasaarinen NUMERACY, MOTHERFUCKER, DO YOU HAVE IT?

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

Touchdown Sydney, after an extended episode of flying in circles.

via TweetDeck

Transmitters off. See you in Sydney.

via TweetDeck

Jesus, people, what is so hard about walk to your assigned seat, sit on it, and STFU?

via TweetDeck

@juhasaarinen That’s right. What did my tweet say? Sheesh!

via TweetDeck in reply to juhasaarinen

May I present, shortly, a short instructional film, “5 Conference Tips for PR Professionals” youtube.com/watch?v=_EtaHB…

via Janetter for Mac

RT @mukimu: yfrog.com/kem12tdj @stilgherrian thought we needed more snakes on a plane. [WELL WE DID WHY ARE YOU QUESTIONING ME‽]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

expat_erin All of my female friends are doing IVF. I’m getting a French bulldog. I don’t know what my point is.

The Aristocrats!

Woefully slow airport Wi-Fi is woefully slow.

via Janetter for Mac

Some people are so slow.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus @oberonsghost Or, airports have tables, chairs and alcohol, while suburban railway stations do not.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus They lurk on JQ406, still on its way from Sydney. They’re busy servicing other passengers. Serving, I mean. Probably.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus The problem with your theory us that THERE ARE NO FLIGHT ATTENDANTS BECAUSE THERE IS NO AIRCRAFT WHICH IS THE ENTIRE POINT!

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Because Jetstar.

via TweetDeck

Four males, various ages and tastes, with 2 hours to spare at Gold Coast airport. DM for pics and details.

via TweetDeck

Through security, but JQ411 is delayed to 1330 AEDT.

via TweetDeck

The t-shirt is an exhortation to tell everyone about DNSSEC. No really.

via TweetDeck

Worst t-shirt slogan: “DNSSEC is coming (please open your mouth)”

via TweetDeck

Narrow shoulders ahead.

via TweetDeck

“Worongary Town Centre” seems like a contradiction in terms.

via TweetDeck

Mobile: Check out; 1030 cab to airport; loiter; 1245 JQ411 OOL-SYD; train (probably) to Sydney CBD.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently @mukimu and I are on completely different sets of intertubes. He should be grateful.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: @stilgherrian So when are you getting your own ABC radio show? [You mean another ABC Radio show. Dunno. @abcmarkscott?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

New blog post: “Talking 2012 and cyberwar on ABC Local Radio”, audio of me and @domknight stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

You know they do, Sir. You know they do.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile There was all manner of bread, but I had the liverwurst on crackers with smoked salmon, lemon juice and SEKRIT conspiracies.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

@sylmobile The liverwurst is sliced (approx 5mm), the slices laid out in a row, separated by a small square of grease-proof paper.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sylmobile

RT @paulwallbank: What if Bill Gates had been born in Australia? bit.ly/JmlPVI [Politicians would stop plugging Atlassian?]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

Liverwurst and smoked salmon is an acceptable breakfast dish. Capers are essential. [nods]

via Janetter for Mac

@RydeResident Agreed. It mean quick-quip replies to other people are given some context for the rest of one’s followers.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RydeResident

1. Shower. ✓ 2. Pants. ✓ 3. Breakfast? Oui.

via Janetter for Mac

@RydeResident Thank you, but it’s just standard copy-editing practice: your own edits/additions to quoted text go in [brackets].

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RydeResident

Actually, @paulwallbank, just calling it a “pop” makes them look ignorant. And vastly sheep-like.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to paulwallbank

paulwallbank Dear tech journos, a stock failing to ‘pop’ on its market debut is a sign of good management. Get informed or look ignorant

Shower pants breakfast. Shower pants breakfast. Shower pants breakfast. Shower pants breakfast. Shower pants breakfast. Here I go.

RT @jplonie: @stilgherrian how drunk were you. [So, I notice you express that as a statement and not a question…]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@expectproblems I know that you know that you’re going to be so pwned now, so I’ll let that slide.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

@expectproblems So, Kaspersky Lab, one of the top-5 infosec companies? THAT @e_kaspersky. He’s Russian, you know.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to expectproblems

That means your last chance to see me alive is Sydney Writers’ Festival tomorrow (Sun) at 2.30pm. And it’s free. swf.org.au/component/opti…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. That’s right. Going paintballing with @e_kaspersky on Wednesday. What could possibly go wrong?

via Janetter for Mac

jaykreps Startup advice overheard: you have too many hipsters, you won’t scale like that. Hire some fat guys who know c++.

via Echofon (retweeted on 7:52 AM, May 19th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

I wonder how many labour hours, across vendors worldwide, have gone into making pretty, meaningless diagrams of a “cyberintrusion”?

via Janetter for Mac

All those printed things you gave us, Vendors? THEY GO IN THE BIN NOW BECAUSE WE INTERNET THESE DAYS I HAVE ENOUGH SHIT TO CARRY.

via Janetter for Mac

@johnthelutheran Does Jesus get a look-in here anywhere? I mean, Debian IS the work of the Devil. I think we have identified your problem.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to johnthelutheran

RT @leslienassar: “@stilgherrian’s War on Grammar” would be a fine column. [This is quite true. Editors should take note, when they sober.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

Grammar, could please to be in my tweet immediate beforehand welcome?

via Janetter for Mac

I am not paranoid, @djshaneday, so I choose to believe that my computer crashing immediately after I wrote about the NSA to be coincidence.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to djshaneday

@JennaPrice Oh poor @edrabbit! Given that it was RTed by “famous people” it’s probably had a bigger audience that anything I’ve ever done.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JennaPrice

@djshaneday You’re starting to sound like @e_kaspersky, who prefaced everything yesterday with “When you’re on the internet…”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to djshaneday

@djshaneday I think you should be asked to leave the internet now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to djshaneday

The rest of my writing and “Patch Monday” podcast will be published on Monday. I’ll tweet other people’s stuff through the morning.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan: Clear comms; 1030 car to airport; 1245 OOL-SYD; train to Sydney CBD; check in; remainder TBA, but it’ll include some writing.

via Janetter for Mac

I do realise that the tense used in the tweet I just RTed indicates that it was probably written days ago but, you know, fuck you.

via Janetter for Mac

edrabbit Why is Facebook going public?

They couldn’t figure out the privacy settings either.

via Echofon (retweeted on 7:12 AM, May 19th, 2012 via Janetter for Mac)

@djshaneday Sydney is quite an accommodating old lady, there’ll be room for both us and more!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to djshaneday

Good morning, boys and girls. Today I shall fly back to Sydney!
