One advantage of QF108: plenty of room down the arse end of the aircraft. See you in SYD at 0740 AEST. Transmitters off.

Other PR firms might like to read my recently-updated contact page for some unsubtle hints. stilgherrian.com/contact/

I’ve made a note of their phone number, and will mock them at length in a blog post tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

I didn’t make out the name, but an arsehat Melbourne PR firm just phoned 5 mins after sending an email asking if I wanted an interview.

via Janetter for Mac

There is a balding man in a purple shirt and a suit bag from Harvey Nichols. He is flouncing. I want to punch him in the face.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, I’d beter go clear security etc and get to the gate lounges. Back online in a bit.

@jamezpolley Thanks. I can’t get that site to work for me here. Weird firewall shit at LAX. What flew AA3135 SJC-LAX tonight? @chrisjrn

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jamezpolley

@chrisjrn @dobes Well, I’m not paying for the flights so I don’t get to choose.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

I’d scheduled work en route, but the B744 has no seat power. There goes that plan. I WILL JUST HAVE TO DRINK ALL THE THINGS INSTEAD.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jamezpolley: @stilgherrian @chrisjrn flightradar24.com/data/flights/q… makes it clear that it’s been a 744 for all recent runs [Enormous. Big. Poo.]

via Janetter for Mac

That fact that I know this much about the gate configurations at LAX disturbs me. Also LAX Wi-Fi is shite.

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisjrn @QantasAirways Well seatguru.com is listing both aircraft types as an option, but yes I think QF108 is generally a 747.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisjrn

Hang on. I’m on @QantasAirwayss QF108 not QF12, gate 121 at LAX not 102, which from memory can’t handle an Airbus A380. I’m in a Boeing 747?

American Eagle’s Wikipedia entry suggests it was an Embraer ERJ-140, seating 44. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_…

via Janetter for Mac

@chrisbrownie Yeah when people said MD-80 I was thinking “Nope, this is way smaller than that.” Didn’t get the registration number, alas.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

That was NOT an MD-80 I flew, you useless fools! Not even close. Try an Embraer 145 family model of some sort. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Embraer_E…

via Janetter for Mac

Caught shuttle from American Eagle satellite to LAX Terminal 4. Walking to International Terminal.

Touchdown Los Angeles.

via Cloudhopper

I take that back. Never been in one of these little things. On board. Adequate . Transmitters off. See you in Los Angeles.

via Cloudhopper

@chrisbrownie @zerogeewhiz Ah! Flew one of these from Las Vegas to LAX once. Got upgraded to first and fed triple scotch.

Right. Time to check out and get the car to San Jose. Tweets intermittent.

RT @juhasaarinen: @stilgherrian Nobody. It will be a lonely, lonely and sad event for you. [Good. I can’t stand people.]

@peterhau I know nothing about an @AuTechHeads party, but then I won’t be looking at my schedule for next week until tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to peterhau

So who else out of the Australian tech media mafia is going to Microsoft’s Tech.Ed on the Gold Coast next week?

Thank you, Dionne Warwick, for the lead-in song for all my radio spots today. youtube.com/watch?v=jqWt49…

via Janetter for Mac

@ShadyPhoon Well surely Gerard Henderson won the Hugo?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to highonprose

The @phildobbie radio spot is recorded. I’m packed. I’m lining up recording times for ABC @1057darwin. The limo arrives in 45 mins. Glamour!

via Janetter for Mac

“Enormous mutant star goat!”

via Janetter for Mac

It was only the Hugo Awards. Not like it was the Nebula or anything.

via Janetter for Mac

Sorry, we give a fuck what Gerard Henderson thinks… why? I mean, is there a shortage of bitter old men in the media suddenly?

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll shortly be recording a piece about online bullying with @phildobbie, and it’ll be on Sydney’s FM99.3 after 1900 AEST tonight.

The B-Ark wouldn’t have a waiting list so much as a velvet rope, @SnarkyPlatypus.

So that I get it right in a radio spot, I finally looked up what Charlotte Dawson actually does. B-Ark, really.

Every two-bit hack imagines they churn out a Walkley winner every day. It’s all the OTHER journos who are bad. @swearyanthony @NewtonMark

“Future of media” gigs (which always turn into “save my job as it is right now”) are full of special pleading, @swearyanthony @NewtonMark.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to swearyanthony

swearyanthony Its that simple, hypocrites. You don’t get to play “I’m a special snowflake”. You get free speech, so do the rest of us.

@dahowlett Yep, I intend to have a late dinner at LAX. Then supper on the Qantas Airbus A380. But right now I feel like noodles, I think.

@ataraxite Not all Americans, no. And not even all Americans on TV. I think. They just feel the need to shout the news at you.

It would seem that you’re not allowed to speak on US TV news and current affairs programs unless you speak in a high-pitched gabble.
