@rsf001 @chrisjrn Thanks for that. VH-YVC certainly had all the latest kit, at least as far as I could see from the back end.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to rsf001

Can someone please look up the VH reg of the Boeing 737-800 that flew VA669 CBR-SYD tonight? Seemed bloody new.

Just chatting with one of the pilots. Agreed, the Boeing 737-800 handles damn well when it’s… like… empty.

Confirmed, we’re flying a Boeing 737-800 on VA669 CBR-SYD with 12 passengers. instagr.am/p/VOJej-iFkf/

VA669 is nearly ready for boarding and, yes, it’s about 12 passengers instagr.am/p/VOIzEICFj5/

Has that traitorous little arsehole gone there without me?

via Plume for Android

So how it works is that they have pre-prepared plastic bowls of laksa that they put in the microwave… What has God wrought?

via Plume for Android

Airport laksa should be OK, yeah? instagr.am/p/VOGYieCFin/

RT @jplonie @stilgherrian @VirginAustralia do you have enough fuel to get to Ibiza? [Fuel, vodka, whatever…]

via Plume for Android

Hah! The flight delay has been reduced to zero. It seems all 12 of us will be ready to board when the new plane arrives.

via Plume for Android

I should probably book some Sydney accommodation at some point soon.

via Plume for Android

RT @RealDavidHeath yeah it’ll take half the time anyway. :) [Well, not really. From CBR it’s all load and taxi anyway.]

via Plume for Android

The @VirginAustralia staff and I are considering turning VA669 into a party bus, or plane.

via Plume for Android

Haha! VA669 has replaced the ATR 72 with a Boeing 737-800… for “about 12 passengers”. Also, delayed 30 mins.

@Jester_Jeff Thank you. Operation Strawberry Kisses is Go!

via Plume for Android in reply to Jester_Jeff

I so hang out with the wrong kind of people.

via Plume for Android

OH: “Remember when operational code names weren’t PR but two random words? Like Scarlet Dog?” “Yeah, and Strawberry Kisses!”

via Plume for Android

No, not like that. You people are grubby.

@SnarkyPlatypus No-one in Canberra needs to tail me. I use Android.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@Jester_Jeff I am. I’ll pop over once I’ve finished this pint.

via Plume for Android in reply to Jester_Jeff

@SnarkyPlatypus What if you’re already 37% more suspicious? Hypothetically speaking.

via Plume for Android in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

If you were tailing me before, just a heads up. I’ve gone to King O’Malley’s and put on a hoodie.

Why are resignations always “shock”? Haven’t these alleged journalists heard that people resign from jobs after a while? Try Xanax, folks.

@giddeygirl Sir has little knowledge of the cafés in Civic, and shall be ploking himself in the first one that looks halfway decent.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to giddeygirl

You know, @SnarkyPlatypus, B Kliban has covered this “Christopher Pyne is a virile unicorn” thing before. a2.ec-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/145/a…

via Janetter for Mac

SnarkyPlatypus Today’s key message is that Pyne is a virile unicorn.

@jeffsonstein Oh all manner of things definitely did not happen that day. ;) 39C temps. Hot. Dusty. Loud. Stupidly fun. Nothing sank AT ALL.

via Plume for Android in reply to jeffsonstein

@faldo Scroll, Sir, and contact its keepers. I was but passing by…

via Plume for Android in reply to faldo

@jeffsonstein Ah. In my case it was a demo day with 3/9 South Australian Mounted Rifles (SAMR) light cav. We Def did not sink the M113, OK?

via Plume for Android in reply to jeffsonstein

I think I’ll walk back to Civic for a late lunch with a little wine.

via Plume for Android

@jeffsonstein Heh! Yes, your memories of the M113 are rather different from mine. Yours may not have sunk, perhaps?

via Plume for Android in reply to jeffsonstein

@SnarkyPlatypus A helicopter assault on Melbourne is not an unreasonable concept.

I suppose I could always wander up to Russell and throw rocks at random secure buildings until I get shot in the head.

Mobile. Attention limited.

via Janetter for Mac

BTW, if any Canberra denizens meant to catch up with me while I was here, well, there’s probably a good opportunity this afternoon.

via Janetter for Mac

Judging by the seat selection screen, VA669 isn’t exactly going to be a crowded aircraft this evening.

via Janetter for Mac

Sat plan: Check out; visit Australian War Memorial (a museum too, y’see); drinks, maybe (who? where?); 1905 VA669 CBR-SYD; evening TBA.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes, yes… I visited Maroochydore with the Lizard People last year, remember?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @en_gy: @stilgherrian @BernardKeane @mishnmash Oh great. I’ll never get that image of Latika and anal beads out of my head now. [Ermph.]

via Janetter for Mac

I don’t think I’ve actually been to the Australian War Memorial, so that shall be my plan unless a better one suddenly materialises.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: I think some French grammar pedants just died somewhere. [Un bon commencement…]

via Janetter for Mac

@BernardKeane @mishnmash You don’t need a cabinet shuffle to distract the press gallery. A ball of string or a few coloured beads will do.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BernardKeane

@SnarkyPlatypus Je serai à Maroochydore dans environ deux semaines. Tuez-moi maintenant.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je viens juste de commencer à comprendre combien peu me tire à Sydney ces jours-ci.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je considère mes options, avec une certaine mélancolie. Et vous?

@aimee_maree My brief from @zdnetaustralia was quick highlights from @timberners_lee’s speech, max 600 words. Speech maybe ~9000 words.

@aimee_maree @zdnetaustralia To be honest, I’m not a big fan of sentences starting “You should…. :) I’m not unfamiliar with BitCoin.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aimee_maree

@aimee_maree @leslienassar @twoscomplement Sorry, I’ve no idea what you’re trying to say, if your words do follow on from the linked tweet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to aimee_maree

Suddenly realising that I don’t HAVE to be in any specific place for the next two weeks. Instead of Sydney tonight I could go… anywhere!

via Janetter for Mac

OK, lots of suggestions for Canberra to-do things there, thank you everyone. I’ll ponder over breakfast. And then book my flight out.

via Janetter for Mac

@glengyron Ah yes. You understand. Thank you. Though it’ll “only” have been three days.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to glengyron

RT @mjec: Find air vents on the secret tunnel out of APH. Check progress on the new ASIO HQ. Throw rocks at ANU’s gravity wave detector. [!]

Waiting for suggestions for interesting things to do in Canberra today. My intention is a 1905 flight out.

“2-In-1 iPotty with Activity Seat for iPad” is a thing. Our species jumps the shark. ctadigital.com/item.asp?item=… HT @BoingBoing via @juhasaarinen

via Janetter for Mac

@kmac Yes, @timberners_lee’s point was about mobile apps versus native (for-iOS, for-Android). Or am I really missing something?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to kmac

Tho, @leslienassar @twoscomplement, as Adam Curtis explains on TV, Silicon Valley culture is pure Randroid. thoughtmaybe.com/all-watched-ov…

via Janetter for Mac

Agreed, @leslienassar @twoscomplement, “I can think of it therefore I have a right to it” runs beyond selfishness into solipsism.

via Janetter for Mac

@leslienassar But the video interview with @timberners_lee by me and @simonhackett will appear at @iiNet late next week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to leslienassar

@leslienassar I don’t know if Friday morning’s @timberners_lee speech will be posted. There were quite a few linguistic “tells”.

@johnthelutheran Yeah I was a bit confuse by @timberners_lee’s praise of m.ft.com, but hey I’m just reporting his words.

via Janetter for Mac

Happy Saturday. Today in 1887 the first Groundhog Day was celebrated in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania. No-one understands why.
