Yeah don’t tell me which government ministers are attending RSA Asia Pacific. Send plane tickets. [Is that too unsubtle?]

via Tweetbot for iOS

Group 1 is boarding. I’m in Group 3. In halal cattle class.

@michaeltwofish Well, I fully intend to plan some more travel with associated media very soon.

@NicholasFryer Thanks. Alas, despite being familiar with the trans-Pacific commute, I still can’t sleep on these fuckers.

They’ve said that we’ll be boarding soon. Once we start, I’ll turn off the FondleSlab and see you in Sydney tomorrow morning.

PeteDotAscian @stilgherrian @chrisbrownie Why stop at one ibis? Party time.

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 2:40 PM, May 20th, 2013 via Tweetbot for iOS)

I probably shouldn’t be allowed near the Internet.

Trying to understand why people seem to get into such dramas at airports. I’ll just assume it’s because they’re idiots.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@franksting No, that was all done in 15 mins, ages ago.

@garystark Jesus wept, there’s no Walkley for Entitled Whinging, you know.

@jeffsonstein I have yet to visit the UK. People seem to want me in The America mostly.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jeffsonstein

@garystark @michaelneale What? Oh your poor precious little petals. This is a good airport. Try Nairobi some time.

@gattaca Nah, man, I’m tired and not drunk whatsoever, so I’m happy to have someone sort the details. And he was legit.

via Plume for Android in reply to gattaca

Cleared. And grateful, for the Nth time, these guys’ badges don’t read “TSA” but “Team SFO”.

via Plume for Android

Oh great. Thanks to the efficiency of BART, I’m now at SFO nearly three hours before departure time.

via Plume for Android

I also love BART train operators’ delusion that their low audio bandwidth mumblings are at all comprehensible over the electric roar.

via Cloudhopper

I love taking BART. It’s like 1972’s concept of the future.

via Cloudhopper

Dear The America, take care of your goddam veterans. Ex-Marines asking $2 to help with BART tickets? FFS! I gave him five.

Bother. My car booking has been screwed up. Looks like I’m getting BART to the airport.

Damn damn damn! They have Cao Ni Ma (grass-mud horse) for sale in Chinatown and I didn’t keep enough cash. Aaaargh!

So he drops on the table not my bill, but the dessert menu. THESE PEOPLE ARE EVIL.

Waiter just asked “Are you able to finish that chicken, or do you want a bucket?” Yeah, they get it.

@nicilind I am not in a position to explain your breakfast.

I’m going to go and hide in a corner. Let me know when it’s over.

Jack Kerouac was a softcock.

via Plume for Android

That and fact they’re playing Sonny & Cher.

via Plume for Android

Look, @jeffsonstein , the very fact that the place is called “Jack Kerouac Alley” should be sufficient warning.

via Plume for Android

@jeffsonstein Oh God, I can’t go anywhere after this except the airport. Or a vomitorium.

via Plume for Android in reply to jeffsonstein

If you’re wondering where the other 20 cloves of garlic are, they’re inside the chicken.

via Plume for Android

This dish is called “Forty clove chicken”, and it is what it is.

So with that done, it’s an early dinner at The Stinking Rose. And then a long-haul flight. Is this a crime against humanity?

via Cloudhopper

Or, you know, um, how many fingers am I holding up? This is how it all started last time.

via Plume for Android

Or two, obviously.

I’ll get to lunch eventually, but I must first have a refreshing $8 Bloody Mary at Vesuvio. vesuvio.com

@SnarkyPlatypus Je dois trouver un endroit qui accepte mes cadeaux.

@rayhasaust Guessed as much. Jailbreaking is a moot point, I won’t be doing that.

@SnarkyPlatypus Je ne sais pas encore. Je vais décider une fois arrivé à la plage nord.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. Il est lumineux et ensoleillé, et je suis sur mon chemin pour trouver le déjeuner. Je suis mélancolique. Et vous?

Hmmm… Is there a way to make the FondleSlab’s home screen something more useful than a grid of icons? It seems… primitive.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@dahowlett Yeah that was always a colleague’s policy. Be customers’ first thought for help every time.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to dahowlett

@jeamland @druey Thanks, now I just need to start using AppDotNet… ;)

via Plume for Android in reply to jeamland

The Apple Store on Stockton has neither of those in stock. Heading, on their recommendation, to a nearby Target.

via Plume for Android

Sun plan, 1145 PDT: Apple Store; wander San Francisco, including lunch at North Beach, probably; 1900 car to SFO; 2235 UA863 SFO-SYD.

via Janetter for Mac

To the folks who suggested Tweetbot to me, yes, I agree. Nice bit of work. Is there one for AppDotNet? ;)

via Janetter for Mac

@ivovic Ta. I have a couple USD 50.00 Amex gift cards, so my plan was to spend one on the cover and the other on a long lunch.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Thanks for all those suggestions for now. I reckon I’ll check the Apple Store now, since it’s close and I have to check out.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

RT @BXGD: Probably because nothing can beat etsy: etsy.com/search?q=ipad%… [Indeed. Alas, I leave the US in 11 hours. I’ll explore later.]

via Janetter for Mac

@ivovic Indeed, and the Belkin Chambray looks like exactly what I want. I’m guessing the Apple Store will have it too.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Heh. Tastes always differ. That Evouni one is gorgeous. “Daily maintenance”? That might count me out. I trash the tech tools.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Please do! I want to grab something at least before I catch my plane tonight.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Something folder-like that can also stand up for watching stuff? TBH I haven’t thought it thru, I never planned to have a tablet.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

@ivovic Ah yes, I see your point. I’m not wanting to go TOO weird, tho. Maybe just a choice of fabrics or something. Not, oh, carved teak.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ivovic

No-one seemed to know of a place to buy an interesting iPad Mini cover in San Francisco except the Apple Store. Surely there’s others?

via Janetter for Mac

Another excellent breakfast at @cafemason consumed. Now getting myself ready for my final day of wandering, and then departure.

via Janetter for Mac

Sun plan, draft: Breakfast, Cafe Mason; wander San Francisco with no clear plan (tho I have a list); 1900 car to SFO; 2235 UA863 SFO-SYD.

via Janetter for Mac

@Beautyon_ @StealthyApp No, you’re just not differentiating between “many” and “all”. You’re saying “always”. Anyway, that’s all for now.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@iansambo I haven’t tried. But I figured that’s what is was from screenshots, tho, and didn’t think that was worth giving away more privacy.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iansambo

@Beautyon_ @StealthyApp Anyway, I can see you REALLY want to Believe (I mean this neutrally, I’m smiling), so let’s wait for the diagram.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@Beautyon_ @StealthyApp My point is that there may not BE a proxy “behind” where the blacklist blocking sits. Proxies don’t appear by magic.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@iansambo What do you find good abut Flipboard? Seems just another player wanting to insert itself in between me and my reading to track it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to iansambo

@Beautyon_ @StealthyApp It’s a “normal” scenario, too, but I know you’ll need a diagram, to prove Proxy Magic don’t exist. Wait, Sir/Ma’am!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@Beautyon_ @StealthyApp I’ve a scenario in mind, yes, but LOGIC says that if the possibility exists you can’t claim proxy will ALWAYS work.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Beautyon_

@StealthyApp @Beautyon_ I’ve already mentioned the *kind* of problem: A proxy needs an unblocked path to the target. Can’t guarantee that.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to StealthyApp

@johnb78 Well, I won’t be a “West Coaster” for much longer. About 14 hours to go.
