@ApostrophePong Are you making a bad music video to go with it?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ApostrophePong

It was agreed with @chrisjrn that @mpesce needs to get into infosec so we can fight the hypercybers.

RT @deanemorrow: Dinner under the dome, Mt Stromlo pic.twitter.com/zE4xPMQ4 [Yep, this was the atmosphere.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @michaelneale: @jonoabroad @stilgherrian wasn’t there an S Club 7 song about that? [Confused now.]

via Janetter for Mac

@elronxenu Investigator, not inspector. More like a detective than a rubber-gloved minion.

@feesable Once tomorrow is done, anything and everything is possible, yes.

Exploding into the hotel room.

via Plume for Android

The bus driver from Transborder was fifteen kinds of excellent. And was formerly an investigator with AQIS.

RT @jonoabroad you leave your public keys in a bowl? [No, private keys. And on github.]

RT @cjlambert @stilgherrian oh ok I’ll look at some baby hedgie-ma-hogs on tumblr now. [Excellent plan.]

via Plume for Android in reply to cjlambert

@cjlambert This is not what you’d really call a hipster event.

via Plume for Android in reply to cjlambert

Key-signing parties sound wrong. Especially with those guys involved.

@snerdish I’m over David Attenborough. He never returns my calls and didn’t even acknowledge the jellyfish.

RT @snerdish I saw @stilgherrian but we didn’t kiss. [Well you should have asked.]

via Plume for Android in reply to snerdish

So we’re being driven into a pine forest…

via Plume for Android

We have just passed the corner of Steve Irwin Avenue. Those on the bus express some dismay.

via Plume for Android

We have buses, wave two.

via Plume for Android

There are more people than bus capacity. The buses will return in 45 minutes. There is no gin cart. Appalling.

via Plume for Android

And now we’re being herded into buses and being taken to dinner at Mt Stromlo. Or the delousing station.

via Plume for Android

MT @snerdish: @stilgherrian [is] like a motile cyber Pringle. [There’s one for the CV.]

Ironing a t-shirt. This is what my life has become.

via Plume for Android

Op-ed filed for @zdnetaustralia! Time to grab clean pants, have a quick shower and head in to prepare for the @timberners_lee recording.

via Janetter for Mac

@joshgnosis This is a fair point. I have fixed the Twitters. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

Oh. “Australian Election 2013: Where will the NBN and data retention be?”, writes @joshgnosis zdnet.com/australian-ele…

via Janetter for Mac

This timing is getting tight.

via Janetter for Mac

Re-discovering my use of the phrase “the ping-pong show of politics”. I shall have to use that again soon.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @monkeytypist: One fraud charge for every member of the House of Representatives. [Oh if only…]

via Janetter for Mac

“Prime Minister Alexander Downer”? Yes, that does sound rather pleasant.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @MarkWBurrows: Detectives arriving at Craig Thomson’s electorate office. pic.twitter.com/WfIH3Sob [Always such a attractive look.]

via Janetter for Mac

Is there a special collective term for a trio of wombs?

via Janetter for Mac

Hiding away at a Canberra restaurant to clarify my op-ed for @zdnetaustralia and then our questions for @timberners_lee at 1700. Also, eat.

@linuxconfau Thank you. The new badge has been collected, and I can confirm that it is shiny.

@DJBentley With universities everywhere in “cost recovery” mode, it’s a long way from the “free university” of 1970s to 1980s Australia.

OH: “You’re wearing a different shirt.” “Well you can only wear it so many days in a row.” They were joshing. I think.

via Plume for Android

@SnarkyPlatypus Well it would be against conference policy to actually shoot them.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Isn’t it obvious that the “rogue” ESSID is our friends and sponsors from DSD?

via Plume for Android

@LCANetworks I merely observe the human behaviour… :)

via Plume for Android in reply to LCANetworks

@SnarkyPlatypus (I flagged that “sic” because PG13 is not a thing in the Australian content classification system.)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus No. There’s an attempt on to locate the “culprit”, to be “outed and shamed”. Anything not “PG13” [sic] is hit hard here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

bunnie gets a round of applause for his hack of HDCP video encryption and “dead reckoning” which pixles to swap from timing info.

via Janetter for Mac

So these are the wireless networks I can see… twitpic.com/bzlzx8

via Janetter for Mac

I’m learning heaps about Linux on embedded hardware from bunnie, but nothing that is “news” that an editor will buy.

via Janetter for Mac

OH: “bunnie hacked the original Xbox. ‘Hacked’ is perhaps the wrong word. ‘Made more open’.” HEY GUYS, I MADE THE BANK MORE OPEN!

via Janetter for Mac

@SisterMorphine @gusworldau You people are confusing and should be prevented.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SisterMorphine

Amused that all delegates are being issued with soap. Making my way to the delousing station.

Uhoh experiencing sudden flashback to 1982, repressed memories returning.

@techAU Most consumers aren’t confortable changing the oil in their car, either, so they get it done by someone who knows how.

@NewtonMark Either that or we’ve moved into a realm beyond cow-tipping.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

RT @NewtonMark: @stilgherrian I see from your avatar that you slant to the left when you aren’t turned on. [Quite true.]

via Janetter for Mac

Thu plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia; morning at ; errands (inc haircut?); prep then 1700 interview @timberners_lee; conf dinner.

via Janetter for Mac

I suppose I should wander over to ANU and check in to , even though my writing priorities today are about other things.

Dear Everyone in Infosec PR: RSA Conference is weeks away. Either send me plane tickets or eff off and leave me to do THIS week’s work.

via Janetter for Mac

@linuxconfau Not yet. I haven’t even arrived at the conference yet. But I’ll certainly pimp things to you as they emerge.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to linuxconfau

I still don’t get how anyone ever imagined that UPnP was a good idea.

via Janetter for Mac

Noticing some remarkably shoddy typing earlier. I probably didn’t have any pants on.

@ozdj Same thing can be achieved with an AK-47 and 60 rounds.

@SnarkyPlatypus Il ya en fait deux possibilités. Un, une retraite confortable tôt conduit à l’impuissance. Deux, la dépendance à l’héroïne.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Canberra is hilarious. 13C overnight, 32C today. The coty’s name means, oin the local Aboriginal language, “City of Trolls”. Probably.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis tout à fait prêt à toute éventualité. Et vous?
