@Rodicurus @Asher_Wolf That said, Paller did point out how to make the sysadmins look good so the pointy-haireds pay attention.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Rodicurus

@Asher_Wolf I don’t disagree. In the cold light of day, Alan Paller’s straightforward recipe recipe sounds just a tad more difficult.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

RT @Asher_Wolf: the biggest obstacle with trying to turn sysadmins into heroes is it requires a huge cultural shift for most workplaces…

@thornae Having done linguistics as well as media production, I’m in awe of the work that must go into Bad Lip Reading.

RT: Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Cyberwar is happening now: turn your sysadmins into heroes” zdnet.com/cyberwar-is-ha…

via Janetter for Mac

So if I was meant to do something involving you and email or phone calls today, HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

via Janetter for Mac

Taking the long way around.

OK, I’m late to this, but the most recent Bad Lip Reading is rather special. youtube.com/watch?v=Qlwilb…

This whole Jamie Oliver thing is more complicated than I thought, @thornae @missdi_k @aDB @juhasaarinen @jplonie @D_Keating @jonbergan

RT @joshgnosis: When online forms require you to enter a surname, you should just use ‘Gate’. [This has merit, yes. Or merlot. One of them.]

via Janetter for Mac

Do all the -gate suffixes grate with you. @purserj? Is this a new scandal? Gategrategate, perhaps?

via Janetter for Mac

Vodka must be on special in Auckland this week.

via Janetter for Mac

What can be done to prevent Jamie Oliver?

via Janetter for Mac

This is ridiculous. It’s still well above 22C here. At 1930 AEDT. THE MOUNTAINS ARE BROKEN.

via Janetter for Mac

@DrMobs @ret56fe There must be some… painful way of dealing with these situations.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to DrMobs

The train arrives at Wentworth Falls at 1910. I might try The Grand View for dinner again. The Mon-Tue specials may have changed by now.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @expectproblems: Remember, kids - it’s not a meal if it doesn’t begin with a tequila shot. [Sound advice.]

via Janetter for Mac

@leslienassar There is that. But in this case there seemed to be little self-awareness. I think he was more a giant amoeba.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

In fact, I’m probably more pleased that the sprawling fat man has fucked off.

via Janetter for Mac

Also pleased that the fat man who sprawled his arms and legs into my half of this double seat alighted at Emu Plains. My back straightens.

via Janetter for Mac

Pleased the “Patch Monday” podcast “Data retention’s underlying attitude problems” is getting some traffic. zdnet.com/data-retention…

via Janetter for Mac

@karalee_ Yeah, most cats seem to have too many wheels. No wait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to karalee

@dobes @zdnetaustralia I fully support any practical recommendation along the lines of Mr Paller’s. He seemed such a practical man.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dobes

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Cyberwar is happening now: turn your sysadmins into heroes” zdnet.com/cyberwar-is-ha…

via Janetter for Mac

I want to use the term “rolling stock” but I suspect that would encourage people to post videos of cats on skateboards and such.

via Janetter for Mac

The platform staff seem disinclined to engage in “explanations”.

via Janetter for Mac

The 1723 train to Lithgow is, once more, lacking what we in the trade call a “train”. Still, we’ve got a few minutes to go.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @grantshow I initially read that as ‘railway gimps’. Which is different. [That’s correct, yes.]

via Plume for Android

@SnarkyPlatypus From the coastal prairies to the mountains, yes.

Well there’s the story filed for @zdnetaustralia. Whew. Time to get a ferry to Circular Quay and a train back to Wentworth Falls. Slowly.

via Janetter for Mac

The final stage of today’s writing is upon me: destroying 15% of what I’ve created to make the rest better. Editing, thy name is Knife!

via Janetter for Mac

I can admire a man who can correctly use the subjunctive.

via Janetter for Mac

@mrn300 Seems pretty butch, yeah. (Sorry. Compulsory dad joke.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mrn487

Ah good, there’s power over by this table… instagr.am/p/RMB7BOCFug/

@en_gy You found time to go to the Imperial?

via Janetter for Mac

@nanopunk No, I am not wearing “togs”. Make of that what you will.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PitcherJenna

@CarmenAngerer @GreenJ @WoollyMittens Does it help if I say the power outlet doesn’t work and I’ll have to find somewhere else in an hour?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to CarmenAngerer

OH: “Music these days is all about software.”

via Janetter for Mac

Departing for today’s office. instagr.am/p/RLsihfiFsP/

As an aside, I’ve decided that today’s writing will be best conducted at Manly overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

RT @NickHodgeMSFT I Hope This Helps to Explain youtu.be/FavUpD_IjVY via @YouTube [Perfectly, thank you.]

I think I might just work here for a while… instagr.am/p/RLpukliFpl/

BTW, what are we on today?

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Walk to a railway station; train to Sydney CBD; eggs.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan: Breakfast (Sydney CBD?); write for @zdnetaustralia; return to Wentworth Falls; plan future “Patch Monday” podcasts en route.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis très heureux à la perspective de prendre un train avec les gens ordinaires. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Being trolled by a half-arsed amateur narwhal.

via Janetter for Mac

@ozdj If Im getting you a pony then I’m definitely getting the dipping sauce as well. It’d be gauche not to.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ozdj

Final RT: Me at @CSO_Australia: “DSD confirms: application whitelisting is the go” cso.com.au/article/439955… “Catch, Patch, Match,” folks!

via Plume for Android

Thu plan, draft: Write, probably for @zdnetaustralia; return to Wentworth Falls; organise future “Patch Monday” podcasts; what else?

via Plume for Android

WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT IS GOING TO BE 33C TODAY IN SYDNEY HOW IS THAT EVEN POSSIBLE YOU NEED TO RETHINK YOUR STRATEGY QUICK SMART.

via Plume for Android

Ermph. I’m not sure whether this is acceptable.
