@MarquisO It was indeed a good presentation. I’ll be trying to generate a story out of it tomorrow. is something that you know, or not.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to MarquisO

Since I’ve been awake since something like 0400 I’ll now be minimally polite before collapsing. Here we go…

via Janetter for Mac

Wait. Are we putting @swearyanthony to death?

via Janetter for Mac

I’m surprised I didn’t know ANYONE at that SANS event. I’m not at all surprised that the was abysmal.

via Janetter for Mac

@sh4nw @viveka That’s all good then. I think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sh4nw

@sh4nw @viveka Hah! That IS officially too weird now! She was randomly walking past as I left Central.

I love how the presenter is roaming the room with a bottle of James Squire in hand. This is REAL infosec, kiddies!

@seamus All noted, Sir. I’ll give you a buzz in the morning.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to seamus

Nearly 70 people have arrived so far. One is a woman.

Hmmm… “Indulgent porkfest…”

@maldamkar I’d be happy with arts funding being cut if the cuts were to that vast indulgent porkfest of major performing companies.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to maldamkar

@dobes Good thinking, 99! I’ve been wondering what to put on my business card.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

If the police find something difficult and time-consuming we should immediately discard all the laws.

Oh. I’m not actually a member of SANS or AISA but, you know, arrogant media prick.

@sexenheimer @mootpointer @caseyjohnellis All good points, I merely pass on how I’d feel about it. As I’ve said, YMMV.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sexenheimer

angusware Watching Tony Abbott avoid using the word “boat” when describing John Gillard’s arrival in Aus was excellent. He opted for “transport”

@mootpointer As I said to @caseyjohnellis before, I think what you say is going to be unique to your relationship with that individual.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mootpointer

@mootpointer YMMV, obviously, but my warning stands and I still think it’s not the way to go about it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mootpointer

@cheshireb Someone told you drinking carrot juice cures the black dog? No jury in the land would convict you for that murder!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cheshireb

@mootpointer Answering that sort of question as an opener just ain’t going to happen. I know people want to help but that’s not the way.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mootpointer

@GreenJ @firstdogonmoon They’re not generally interchangeable, you know.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GreenJ

@cheshireb @caseyjohnellis Actually, do this. Hand the apparently-depressed person a porcelain kitten and a hammer. “Here, have a go!”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to cheshireb

Actually, @caseyjohnellis, when the black dog bites, the LAST thing you want is “R U OK?”Likely reply: OF COURSE I’M NOT OK NOW FUCK OFF.

via Janetter for Mac

An alternative, @caseyjohnellis? A friend would already know what to ask. And they’d ask ‘cos they noticed, not ‘cos of a campaign.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

To be clear, if anyone asks me “R U OK?” on Thursday, especially if written thus, I will punch them in the face. Great cause, dumb question.

@Montejam I can’t DM ‘cos you’re not following me, but I’ll be able to deal with that in about 45 minutes.

For some reason I like Wentworth Falls as Summer Hill Peaks, @Gwyntaglaw, and the style of pub fits.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Gwyntaglaw

RT @Gwyntaglaw: I’ll play, @stilgherrian: can we agree that Wentworth Falls is Leichhardt Heights? Or maybe Summer Hill Peaks?

As an aside, Blaxland is really a kind of Toongabbie-on-Hill, yeah?

Hmmm… Somewhere between San Francisco and the Blue Mountains I seem to have lost a pair of pants. Shut up.

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed. Its title is “Good-guy hackers and other infosec anomalies”, and it’ll be online some time this afternoon.

@HarrisonPolites @technologyspec Orly? I thought the article was a bit shit, to be honest. YMMV, obviously. Thank you.

@erkpod I have plenty of bits recorded. I just lost 12 hours on Fri-Sat to other things. So this week’s will be a quick and dirty.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to erkpod

Why did I ever agree to do a podcast that had “Monday” IN THE TITLE?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: You need to combine the power of a twibbon and a retweet with an online petition to get optimal effect. [Oh of course.]

via Janetter for Mac

Oh yeah, ‘cos rude people online will stop being rude ‘cos other people signed a petition. Oh FFS when are they building those canals?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @bernietb: I call that “normal”. [True enough.]

Story filed for @technologyspec. I think a brief walk is called for, before producing a “Patch Monday” podcast of some sort.

@Idealaw It was social bonding, no more malicious than asking a new worker to get a can of striped paint or a pad of verbal agreement forms.

@Idealaw The “trolling = offence” equation forgets that trolling was originally a playful, or at least non-malicious, baiting of n00bs.

Here’s my “Patch Monday” podcast interview with @AppDotNet founder @daltonc. zdnet.com/au/app-nets-ra…

“Think @AppDotNet is just a Twitter clone? Then you’re missing the point,” wrote @mathewi. Indeed. gigaom.com/2012/08/13/thi…

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Oh I know that about IFTTT. I hammered the “follow” button in @AppDotNet a little too quickly and got throttled, I suspect.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Hah! I’ve broken it! (OK, I know that’s what “alpha” means.)

via Janetter for Mac

@Idealaw Clearly anyone who says anything even the least bit offensive to anyone ever should be banned from the internet. Silly cow. Moo.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Idealaw

I am now starting to post certain key tweets to @AppDotNet, starting with this one. In theory.

There’s something special about reading Federal Court decisions before 0600 on a Monday morning.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen IIRC I’d written “box” in the article, but realising its pun value for the headline was all @joelgibson’s work. @smh

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

@miss_shiny Well, this piece will be on the internets at @technologyspec before midday. Do let mw know what you think.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to miss_shiny

Wow I’m still rather pleased with my @smh op-ed on Optus TV Now. Shows what a good editor can do. Thanks @joelgibson. smh.com.au/opinion/societ…

via Janetter for Mac

I praised the original Federal Court decision allowing this “cloud VCR” smh.com.au/opinion/societ… but the Full Federal Court overturned that.

Alas, @miss_shiny, I’m doing an op-ed on the Optus TV Now case being denied a High Court appeal. technologyspectator.com.au/optus-slams-tv….

Refreshing my memory of the Optus TV Now case. Being reminded that AFL CEO Andrew Demetriou is a complete and utter arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

OK, settling into the first piece of writing for the day. Thank all the gods, it should be straightforward enough.

via Janetter for Mac

Wow. It requires a remarkable piece of arsehattery to bring me disgruntlement so early in the day, but someone has achieved it. Applause.

@michaelneale I’ll investigate it, thank you. But for now I suppose I might as well have a coffee and start working through the tasks.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale Oddly enough, I have been using melatonin for the last week to readjust after travel. It does little for me.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to michaelneale

I do have a lot to do today, so perhaps this is useful. Or will be useful eventually. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently my brain would like be to be awake now. So I am awake.
