@ssharwood Well I did see there was a painter called Richard Maude, probably not the same person as the senior public servant.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

@ssharwood Do you know something that I don’t? I mean, obviously you do, but…?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ssharwood

@lukebunyip Oh yeah, this was a live 6-min backgrounder. In, talk, out. Not like filming bits for a package.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukebunyip

Does anyone else in the broadcast media need me today, or shall I just assume it’s beer o’clock? (Not that I already have, obviously.)

via Janetter for Mac

From Instagram just now: “joffaboy1 said ‘Tinky Winky?’” Welcome to my world.

via Janetter for Mac

Richard Maude is the new Director-General of the Office of National Assessments, if that means anything to anyone. [shuffles feet]

via Janetter for Mac

We won’t be talking too much about the specifics of this case because of the sub judice rules now that charges have been laid. Backgrounder.

via Janetter for Mac

I’ll be on @ABCNews24 shortly talking LulzSec. Streamed from abc.net.au/news/abcnews24/ or iView or, you know, digital TV (what IS that?).

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you to the folks who’ve just sent me some interesting links. I’m not sure how much of that I can use given Australian media law.

via Janetter for Mac

@mpesce Oh that’s ok then, yes, that’s a fair assessment.

@TheLegendaryRob @snerdish Correct. Well, I needed to move carriages to (a) make calls (b) get to a car with a toilet, but I raised safety.

@TheLegendaryRob If either of us knew the answer to that, would we be doing what we’re doing now?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob It was fascinating. Every single workaround suggested was countered with whatever inconvenience this would cause her.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob At that point I went back to see what was happening, and there were passengers shouting at her. Peace had been breached. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob I’d left things at that point, didn’t see what happened between then and when we stopped at Springwood. 10-min gap or so.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob Yes, I’d asked, she’d refused, and that’s when I first got the guard. She moved the bike then, but it still slipped back.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

@TheLegendaryRob I didn’t see the crucial transition, so I can’t comment on that. But she did comply with “move bike” eventually. [shrugs]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to TheLegendaryRob

Thanks for all your tweets, telegrams and postcards of support. Thank you, CityRail, for providing a calm-headed guard on this train.

via Janetter for Mac

Sorry about all the typos in the earlier tweets. Such things tend to suffer in the excitement of the moment.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jplonie: ask her about vaccines. [Oh that is scarily possibly true.]

via Janetter for Mac

Guard conferred with colleagues, decided they’d delayed the good passengers of this service too much already, we leave before police arrive.

via Janetter for Mac

Eventually she sulkily dragger her bike through the train to another car with a bike rack, telling me to mink my own business en passant.

via Janetter for Mac

We waited. Platform announcements said “This train will be delayed until the police have removed a young woman from the train.”

via Janetter for Mac

So we stopped at Springwood, guard telling colleagues, “I’m not moving the train with her on board.” She still didn’t see what was wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

She was still, “People can move it. See? That [fit young] man got past.” [But what about the older folk?] Guard decided he was over it.

via Janetter for Mac

So, I thought it was over, but the bike kept slipping back so its rear wheel blocked the door. The guard and passengers complained.

via Janetter for Mac

We’re rolling again. Stand by for an update.

via Janetter for Mac

We’re now stopped at Springwood waiting for the police.

via Plume for Android

After that, I’d slipped my phone into my bag, which is why I’m relating this a few minutes later. In future I’ll roll tape first.

via Plume for Android

During that, I did try raking her photo too, but she hid behind a backpack, claiming I had no ethical right to take her photo.

via Plume for Android

“Well,” he says, “I’ll just stop the train and call the police. I don’t have time for this. Your choice.” She sulks, moves bike.

via Plume for Android

He says, “It’s my job to keep the train safe and secure. You can stand next to your bike if you’re worried…” She was not impressed.

via Plume for Android

Enlisting the guard to help, she kicks off at him to demand why this car doesn’t have a bicycle rack. “It’s your job to answer questions!”

via Plume for Android

Explaining that it was a safety hazard, she replied that CityRail sometimes locks doors themselves.

via Plume for Android

Explaining that this was the way for me to get out of the QC and to the toilet, her reply: “You’ll have to go around, I was here first.”

via Plume for Android

The bicycle is owned by a woman who won’t move it because this vestibule doesn’t have a bicycle rack and she wants to sit in the QC.

via Plume for Android

And with that in mind, I think I’d better move out of the Quiet Carriage to somewhere where I can Make Some Noise.

via Janetter for Mac

So @ABCNews24 has bailed from the AFP press conference to bring us Tony Abbott repeating some party-political sound bites. Sigh.

via Janetter for Mac

Oi, @ABCNews24, I was watching that! We get pressers from Tony Abbott every day. We get a hacker charged rarely. Grumble grumble.

via Janetter for Mac

CORRECTION: The online handle of the man changed was: AusShock.

via Janetter for Mac

AFP is not at this stage revealing which website was hacked.

via Janetter for Mac

In the case of the hack with which he’s charged, it appears that he acted alone.

via Janetter for Mac

AFP says that the man charged was not betrayed by fellow LulzSec members. However he claimed leadership in forums and that wasn’t denied.

via Janetter for Mac

He is an Australian national, lived at Point Clare, worked in Sydney. 24 years old. [Can’t be hard to ID him from that, surely?]

via Janetter for Mac

The guy charged worked for the local offshoot of an international company that did information security. The company had no knowledge.

via Janetter for Mac

The allegation relates to a specific hack in Australia, a government website, but not federal government.

via Janetter for Mac

The guy charged had been claiming he was leader, which the AFP knows from their “monitoring of the environment”.

via Janetter for Mac

AFP emphasising that hacking and DDoS is a serious crime and they’ll come down hard.

via Janetter for Mac

AFP is alleging that during the LulzSec period this guy accessed a government computer system. “Skilled” is being used.

via Janetter for Mac

AFP press conference has started, streamed on @ABCNews24. @OzShock is the handle (check spelling?).

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Leighlo

@Leighlo And hey, “keeping it stable” is secondary to having any stream at all. Not everything has to be Hollywood production values.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Leighlo

@Leighlo Yes, I streamed Det Supt Brian Hay’s presser when @bengrubb was arrested and had 600 viewers, I think it was.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Leighlo

This is where I’m still amazed that no-one just has a 4G phone on Ustream or Livestream and streams every presser themselves.
