I’m fairly sure that most of what you are saying is wrong.

OK, I’m heading downstairs for the Seafood Buffet BBQ. I may be some time.

alexkidman @stilgherrian I think you’ll find that we’re not reporting. It’s more like mass tweeting the PR line… so far.

I see that the technology journalists are reporting that the new thing is better than the old thing.

RT @jg_rat: Stand by for live exposé “@stilgherrian: My trouser belt is about to break.” [This is an accurate report, yes.]

via Janetter for Mac

My trouser belt is about to break.

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan, previewed: Local Government IT Conference all day; break at 1130 to record @DownloadABC; 1700 conference dinner.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je crois que Google a une nouvelle fois échoué à capturer correctement les nuances de la langue vernaculaire.

@JennyGardinerMP Ah, Ms Gardiner, Emerald Beach is your patch, or one of them? I see you’re originally a fellow South Australian.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to JennyGardinerMP

@Davidramli Yes, I’m fairly sure it will end up like that later this evening.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Davidramli

@SnarkyPlatypus Il n’y a aucun danger. Tout l’alcool devraient éviter tout risque de danger. Puissiez-vous profiter du train.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Yes, Opal Cove is an actual place. It’s near Sapphire Beach.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Ma présentation est faite, et en 45 minutes au barbecue buffet de fruits de mer commence. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

People who can’t follow procedure, even when it’s provided for them in easy bullet points.

via Janetter for Mac

@samhighley None of those three things hold much appeal.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to samhighley

Stunning views of the Pacific Ocean. Oh wait… instagr.am/p/R_8bPXiFvO/

via Instagram

I have checked into my room at the Opal Cove Resort. I have an hour and half before dinner during which I can amuse myself. Repeatedly.

via Janetter for Mac

@elronxenu @carolduncan I think it was indeed the fish or the chicken they were digesting, not my presentation. Oh well.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to elronxenu

I really don’t know how what I said was received. The audience was very quiet, and there was only one question. I was on after lunch.

via Janetter for Mac

And my presentation is done. I’ll be posting it as a podcast and transcript in the next few days.

via Janetter for Mac

Twenty minutes until showtime. I’m doing a final editing pass through my script.

via Janetter for Mac

@deejayqf Thanks for the suggestions. My strategy will be to wander into town, walk around, and see what strikes my fancy. Then tweet it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to deejayqf

@en_gy In Android, at least, you still have access to the user’s In Case of Emergency contacts even when the phone is locked. So, facts.

via Janetter for Mac

@deejayqf Thank you. It ids my intention to have drinks and dinner somewhere appropriately local on Friday night. Any suggestions?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to deejayqf

@stevemcilhatton Thanks, Steve. I’m just over by the registration desk putting the finishing touches on what I’m going to say.

The view from Opal Cove Resort, Coffs Harbour instagr.am/p/R_RLwVCFsx/

via Instagram

Touchdown Coffs Harbour.

via Plume for Android

OK, time to turn off the transmitters. See you in Coffs Harbour.

via Plume for Android

RT @alexonthebus Do they still weigh you before you board one of those things? [They did ask my waist measurements.]

via Plume for Android

Drew_Bowie Why does Pell fear a “witch hunt”? Did something bad used to happen to people accused of witchcraft? Really? Who did that?

via TweetCaster for iOS (retweeted on 8:32 AM, Nov 14th, 2012 via Plume for Android)

FFS. After all that, there’s a different Bombardier Q400 on the tarmac as well, and we’re boarding that. Aviation is so complicated.

via Plume for Android

Coffs Harbour is GITMO with bananas, according to @jplonie. I shall find out in a couple hours.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s like having TV coverage of, say, football presented by people who’ve never seen a game.

via Janetter for Mac

Why are the people presenting the solar eclipse on TV completely ignorant about them? Surely this is basic literacy of common science?

via Janetter for Mac

@jplonie I don’t think extraordinary rendition flights hand out boarding passes and operate to RPT schedules. Rendition to Coffs Harbour?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jplonie

@smperris I have no idea what you’re talking about.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to smperris

Qantas has decided that this will be our aircraft instead. Even more smaller. instagr.am/p/R—ILYiFsm/

via Instagram

Ah no. Qantas have now provided a Bombardier Q300, whose registration I can’t see from this angle. Photo follows shortly.

via Janetter for Mac

There’s smaller Bombardier aircraft parked nearby. VH-TQE. Is that what we’ll be flying? I WANT TO KNOW NOW.

via Janetter for Mac

Hang on. That Bombardier Q400 VH-QOJ was just started up and it’s… departed for somewhere. There wasn’t anything on the destination board.

via Janetter for Mac

@sylmobile No, that’s the correct size for a Bombardier Q400.

via Plume for Android in reply to sylmobile

Flight QF2106 will be using this aircraft instagr.am/p/R-8Ml6CFrA/

@jplonie And the metal detectors don’t even detect coins any more. This makes them better, or something.

via Plume for Android in reply to jplonie

@dead_aeroplane I just want to be reassured that the things actually work.

via Plume for Android in reply to dead_aeroplane

I am in Terminal 2 and I was not found to be carrying explosives.

via Plume for Android

@oberonsghost Ah. 0840 departure. Inadequate timing for this. Not that I really care.

via Plume for Android in reply to oberonsghost

@ataraxite I was going to assume so, but there are weird wobbles in the sky. And it’s too early.

via Plume for Android

Is the eclipse at the same time as the New Moon? If so, I’ll be in the air at that time.

via Plume for Android

Mobile: Checking out; walk to Town Hall station; 0647 train(s) to Domestic; usual airport things; breakfast; 0840 QF2106 SYD-CFS.

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan, supplementary: I’m presenting at the Local Government IT Conference in Coffs Harbour. stilgherrian.com/personal/visit…

via Janetter for Mac

Wed plan: 0840 QF2106 SYD-CFS; check in; finish presentation; 1345 deliver presentation; writing catch-up; BBQ; prep for @DownloadABC.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite Oh I don’t disagree with your theory. Indeed, I practice your theory.

via Janetter for Mac

I don’t think you’re committed to the cause.

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite Hey, the story of how the wine export industry changed from generic “Kangaroo Red” brands to the modern wonder is fascinating!

via Janetter for Mac

@ataraxite I believe that “Chateau Chunder” was an ABC production. It was certainly on the ABC a few weeks ago.

via Janetter for Mac

Heavy rains and high tides have brought floods to Venice, the worst in years. Here’s 29 photos. theatlantic.com/infocus/2012/1…

via Janetter for Mac

I think you should have gone to Finland.

@ABWho1969 @nthorpe I’ve been compared with Hunter S Thompson several times before. I don’t have guns, though, which is a shame.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ABWho1969

@voiceofapollo If I go to Melbourne next week, Wed night is the event I’d be going for. I wouldn’t be able to hear your band rehearse. :/

via Janetter for Mac in reply to voiceofapollo

Wed plan, draft: Finish writing presentation; 0840 QF2106 SYD-CFS; check in; 1345 presentation at Local Government IT Conf; remainder TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

Hello, Wednesday. You are going to be a busy day, aren’t you!
