@bigmac Look, I’m sure you know exactly the imagery that was in my head, and gratuitous Nazis in my podcast is not a problem.

@semiboganman @JohnBirmingham “pornithology” should so be a word.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@JohnBirmingham Oh yeah. “Penguin House, feeding 10am and 3pm daily”. It’s a difficult one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JohnBirmingham

@JohnBirmingham I see what you mean, though Penguin House sounds like a fancy chook shed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JohnBirmingham

@Wyld I also thought @mumbrella did a great job moderating.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

@Wyld I recorded an interview with the t-shirt designer in San Francisco, will so something with it eventually.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

@Wyld Also, I did dress for the occasion. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

@Wyld Well that was kinda the aim. As you may see, I worked from notes made while Victoria Doidge was talking (though I did prep lots).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Wyld

@Wyld It’s worth watching? I currently don’t have the bandwidth to watch video. :(

I think I might start a shame file of tech industry PR people who use “embrace” as a verb meaning “decide to use”. Tedious cliché FTL.

Tue plan, previewed: 0830 Windows Phone 8 launch; re-edit @technologyspec story; errands Enmore/Newtown; return to Wentworth Falls.

@semiboganman @BernardKeane Oh I certainly wouldn’t waste good wine of tax calculations.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to semibogan

@semiboganman @BernardKeane I believe that most tax accounting procedures works better with wine.

For the remainder of the day I’ll empty this bottle of amenity while sorting through various loose ends.

via Janetter for Mac

Apple has indeed nailed the traditional unix man page, @deconstructo. The bastards. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

My “repair volume” fails in OS X Lion GUI Disk Utility are bugs therein, not problems with the encrypted Toshiba Canvio drives. I think.

via Janetter for Mac

Hey Apple sysadmins, is there a decent HOWTO for command-line diskutil for encrypted CoreStorage volumes? The man page is a tad turgid.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je ne suis pas sûr. Je dois augmenter la taille de l’échantillon.

This train doesn’t have any flashing pictures at all, just continual low-level reminders of the pointlessness of existence.

@Beaker Indeed! @myrcurial @gattaca and I seemed to be on the same psychological page very quickly. Scarily so.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beaker

@Beaker And thanks again for the intros. We had fun, and there’s some moderately bad jokes in there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beaker

It’s a shame “Patch Monday” is more about ICS/DCS rather than SCADA. Couldn’t use “SCADAgeddon” or “SCADAing on thin ice”. Next time.

via Janetter for Mac

@myrcurial @gattaca Thanks again for your time, Gentlemen! A fun conversation. Let’s hope the listeners agree! zdnet.com/cybergeddon-no…

@indigoid If I understand what you’re asking, the answer is insanely easy to discover.

@vanbadham I linked to the @dailytelegraph piece a few times earlier. Scroll bars FTW!

“Patch Monday” podcast: “Cybergeddon now? Industrial control systems targeted”, a reality fix from @myrcurial @gattaca zdnet.com/cybergeddon-no…

via Janetter for Mac

Good, the @technologyspec piece is scheduled to run on Wednesday, which means I can fix it tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Time for a shower and shave and general preparation for the journey to Sydney. I’ll aim for the 1449 train arriving 1645.

via Janetter for Mac

“Patch Monday” podcast filed!

Editors are so cool.

RT @mukimu: Front page of amazon.com is full of lulz today. [He speaks truth.]

via Janetter for Mac

Maybe the story will be held over until tomorrow. That way I can make it less shit. This kettle is taking too long. I should light the gas.

via Janetter for Mac

Disjointed. The word is disjointed. Is “disjoined” even a thing? Maybe I’ll have a coffee, and cry for a while.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ve filed my @technologyspec story. It’s too long, too disjoined, and fills me with the usual fear that it’s shit. But I filed. Done. Next.

via Janetter for Mac

Running late and long with my @technologyspec piece. I’ve sent my words so far to @SupratimA for machete application and wisdom.

There’s quite a bit of imagery online, should you wish to change your avatar today.
