Dealing with time zones.

via Janetter for Mac

It is currently 6C and dropping fast. Disgruntled.

via Janetter for Mac

@0x1C Yeah, could be. [Shrugs.] The world’s a fickle place and I’m an arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 0x1C

@NicholasFryer It still sounds very suspicious if you ask me!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NicholasFryer

I suspected that the idea of the Corrupted Nerds podcast would pull ahead of the others. stilgherrian.com/personal/choos…

via Janetter for Mac

@NicholasFryer It’s sounding like you want a servant!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NicholasFryer

@timfdavis How many jellybeans are in the jar?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to timfdavis

RT @jplonie: there’s a square root joke in there somewhere. [Only if you’re like 15 years old.]

via Janetter for Mac

Yep, I’m going to maths the fucker beyond all redemption.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @timfdavis: a naive bayes classification algorithm [Wow, yes, I should just use every axis of measurement and maths the fucker.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @juhasaarinen: Money and malleability. [Well, yes, that could be a point of view I suppose.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @purserj: I thought axes would be used after deciding which ones to discard [Yes, yes, all in good time. Let’s get the first bit done.]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @StilCyber: cyber-Well, cyber-more. cyber-BTW, cyber-no-one cyber-apart cyber-from cyber-now, [That’s almost a protest chant.]

via Janetter for Mac

So hypothetically, if a friend were wanting to rate all the men he knew to decide which to discard, what would be the axes of measurement?

via Janetter for Mac

I might adopt as a thing that I say, since that’s what @triplejHack said that I say.

via Janetter for Mac

So there’s a internet poll in my blog post “Choosing my next media directions: you’re doing it, OK?” stilgherrian.com/personal/choos…

via Janetter for Mac

@duncanriley I’ll be interested to see what you think of Janetter. I’ve been using it quite a while, and tend not to explore alternatives.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to duncanriley

Glad to see my piece “Backwards attitude to online identity erodes our power” still getting traffic. zdnet.com/backwards-atti…

via Janetter for Mac

@awelder @franksting Which fits with my disinterest in reporting on gadgets. Yes, the new one is better than the old one. Ho hum.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to awelder

@awelder @franksting Aha. So not so much a “tech writer”, but a “writer who understands tech”, or brings those sensibilities. Science FTW!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to awelder

@zerogeewhiz I don’t like their shifty little eyes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

@zerogeewhiz Thank you. By which I mean, fuck off.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to zerogeewhiz

@franksting Hah! Ta. Yet when I tried to objectively explain how @TurnbullMalcolm’s NBN policy was being pitched, the punters told me off!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

RT @0x1C: @snare DID I SAY TERMINAL I MEANT CALCULATOR =] [Are you sure? I don’t think your story adds up…]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @0x1C: .@snare Well this works: system(“/bin/launchctl asuser 0 /Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app/Contents/MacOS/Terminal”); [HAHAHA!]

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting @awelder Quite often I think of dropping the “geek” from my Twitter bio, leaving it as “word-whore” and the topics I cover.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@franksting @awelder That’s most kind, thank you. But sometimes I do worry about being typecast as a “tech writer”. A little. [Shrugs.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@lukebunyip Oh thank you, I’m glad the metaphor can be used in such widely different scenarios.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukebunyip

@RichardParnell @sylmobile Ah well, I’ll do the Penrith coverage at some point. But yes, you’re a week early. I arrive in SJC on Mon 13/5.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RichardParnell

Says the WordPress Forums: “Your password has been reset and a new one has been mailed to you.” Arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac

I must admit, @sylmobile, live-tweeting a trip to Penrith Panthers or just sitting in a shopping mall could be quite fun.

via Janetter for Mac

@jameslyne Oh sure, @Beaker soon had those fractious lights under control.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jameslyne

New blog post: “Choosing my next media directions: you’re doing it, OK?” stilgherrian.com/personal/choos… Contain an internet poll.

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 Ah, “squelch” used properly! The mark of a true comms tragic^H^H^H^H^H^H engineer!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 “How?” So, have you heard of this thing called the “internet”? That’s kinda what it’s for. I think. Isn’t it?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

@scottcarson1957 So, what you’re saying is that LAX is a false flag operation? Are these the Antarctic Nazi Lizards AGAIN?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

Pondering my next podcast in a certain series, “The 9pm Gold Coast”.

via Janetter for Mac

@scottcarson1957 I have doubts about this so-called “Homeland Security”. All they seem to say to me is “Welcome back to America, Sir!”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

True, @Beaker, but for most people that happens at around 0330 on a Sunday when the fourth pill is kicking in. Allegedly.

via Janetter for Mac

What @Beaker has failed to mention is that in the MIDDLE of his keynote he started talking to the lighting equipment.

via Janetter for Mac

Once more, I draw America’s attention to the disturbing reality of my arrival there this coming Saturday. stilgherrian.com/personal/visit…

via Janetter for Mac

@Beaker It was not DURING your keynote. You asked if anyone had questions, and I had a question. Well, more of a speech, really.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beaker

RT @Beaker: There MAY be tequila in the vicinity [Good God, man, you know what to do!]

via Janetter for Mac

@19bk69 Nah, the actual building of the technology is the work of minions. Engineers and suchlike. It is none of my concern.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@19bk69 @mpesce @JohnBirmingham I don’t understand why I am in this question. I have no idea what you’re talking about.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 19bk69

@dufussy This is true. But I do, in fact, have gas again.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dufussy

We have bottled flames again. And no gas leaks, because I checked, not like that other time which never actually happened so you are wrong.

via Janetter for Mac

Having dealt with the DNS problem, it’s now time to find the spanner and lug the 65kg LPG cylinder so I can have a hot shower.

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen I’m fairly sure that we should stop now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

Just stumbled upon my 2011 presentation “Tweeting your way out of Paranoia” (13 min), and it still works today. stilgherrian.com/internet/tweet…

via Janetter for Mac

@juhasaarinen Are you sure that’s not the wrong kind of India?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

RT @shiftkey: @stilgherrian “it’s a Unix system, I know this!” [“Hey 1968 called, they want their operating system back”? OK, DNS != 1968.]

via Janetter for Mac

Right. Having gathered many log lines of evidence, I’ve delegated it all to a support engineer. That’s why the Good Lord invented India.

via Janetter for Mac

Editing /etc/named.conf, because I can. Ancient knowledge is returning to the front burner of my brain.

via Janetter for Mac

Yeah I probably should have checked the back-translation. Still, the introduction of shaving to the dialog makes things much better.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus Non J’ai l’intention de raser au sol nu. S’il vous plaît envoyer de l’argent et de la drogue.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Je suis plein de pensées, mais la plupart des idées sont sur ​​le système de nom de domaine. Et vous?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Noting that my nice hot Sunday morning shower will be delayed until I can be arsed swapping over the 65kg LPG cylinder.

via Janetter for Mac

RT: New blog post: “Talking LulzSec and hacktivism on @triplejHack”, and why the program frustrated me. stilgherrian.com/conversations/…

via Janetter for Mac

New blog post: “Weekly Wrap 152: LulzSec, Optus, radio and thinking stuff” stilgherrian.com/weekly-wrap/15…

via Janetter for Mac

@jeffsonstein Yeah I’m not very good at the sloth part. My life needs a bit of simplification.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jeffsonstein

Sun plan, draft: Washing and cleaning and tidying and filing and stuff; blog post; sketch out an article I want to write; sloth.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @jstogdill: Quick. Name the Great Lakes. [OK, I name them Simon Peter, because tradition.]

via Janetter for Mac

There is a man on the radio glueing things to the back of a platypus. That sounds a bit wrong to me.

via Janetter for Mac

Good morning, Sunday.

via Janetter for Mac

@michaelneale I believe that ABC news car photo to be “real”. For some value of real. I’ve had that image for ages.
