Right, I’ve settled into an overnight stay in Sydney ‘cos of the early start tomorrow. And I’m almost prepared for @4corners. Almost.

@dmflower I’ve seen a couple random episodes of Veep on a plane a few months back, need to see it from the start.

@dmflower Those lines are by his fellow Scottish offsider.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dmflower

@dmflower Sorry, that’s a “The Thick of It” reference.

Patrickavenell A NSW man has been arrested for fixing a harness race. Keep investigating and the police might find someone who has watched a harness race.

Gai Waterhouse found guilty? Goodness me. How can this possibly be true?

via Janetter for Mac

Oh that’s right. @4corners is cybering tonight. I think I’ll need wine for that. Cheap wine. Really cheap wine.

via Janetter for Mac

Oh. @dmflower I just realised what your “joyous” reference was. I’m a bit slow. And not a horse. ARE YOU A HORSE? ARE YOU A FUCKING HORSE?

via Janetter for Mac

@lukehopewell Well, Orca, I think we can arrange this.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@franksting Oh yes, I had a go at CeBIT for spammy behaviour, so they gave me a discount code to hand out. Clever work.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

@lukehopewell Sure, Kitten. Or do you have another preference?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lukehopewell

@franksting Well, I’m Teh Media. I don’t pay the $1200, and I get paid to write words.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

RT @kofeyh: @stilgherrian no early morning cyber for you? [I couldn’t possibly comment. @juhasaarinen]

via Janetter for Mac

@mspecht Yeah but CeBIT isn’t for techies, it’s for PHBs.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mspecht

Here we go. CeBit Cyber Security 2013. cebit.com.au/conferences/cy… Opening address at 0850? WHAT MADNESS IS THIS?

via Janetter for Mac

ivovic @stilgherrian “cyber security” is the act of picking up the soap in a crowded prison shower, and hoping nobody notices your holes.

@dmflower It was a sad moment. I couldn’t get close enough for decent photo. So I just stood back and laughed at the visuals.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to dmflower

So, it turns out I’ll be going to some of CeBIT after all, covering the “cyber security” (whatever that is) day tomorrow.

via Janetter for Mac

Rearranging all the things.

@atirere Sadly Taiga didn’t join me on today’s Sydney journey. Perhaps this was a mistake.

via Plume for Android in reply to atirere

Just collided with the media hunting pack pursuing Gai Waterhouse down Sussex St.

Conversations with @petercoffee are always heaps of fun. Mentally exhausted after he zooms over the technology landscape.

I am so going to regret this.

RT @dobes Sorry Samsung, it’s not me, it’s you: zd.net/ZnwKWC [The delays with OS upgrades are inexcusable.]

via Plume for Android

Uhoh, I just said “Tub waan, ped ped krub” to someone in a position to provide same. Possibly a tactical error.

RT @rashasman: @stilgherrian was there a poll to report? [Is it a day with a Y in it?]

via Tweetbot for iOS

It’s already 1100, so why hasn’t there been any Labor leadership speculation?

via Tweetbot for iOS

Mobile: Stand around outside; 1010 taxi to Wentworth Falls; ATM; pie, probably; 1032 train to Sydney Central; lunch, somewhere.

via Janetter for Mac

Excellent. The Gift of Prometheus in a Big Bottle has been restored.

via Janetter for Mac

Not causing an explosion.

via Janetter for Mac

@SnarkyPlatypus As far as I know, there is no salad involved. Yet. But I shall ask.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Hey, break a leg to everyone at @GuardianAus, despite my snark. “Fresh” and “lively” will be tough to deliver. But it’s only Day One.

via Janetter for Mac

@mjec Undoubtedly. But @GuardianAus launches today, so that’s what I’m looking at.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mjec

@lenoretaylor Ah thank you, Lenore. That’d be the UK’s idea of the top story about Australia then. Or something. Let’s ignore that one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to lenoretaylor

Oh dear. “Top story”. twitpic.com/ctgwvt HT [redacted]

via Janetter for Mac

@nkmccallum Indeed, though it appears that Mr Palmer is blind to that connection. No dinosaurs, y’see.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to nkmccallum

SnarkyPlatypus There is no Grauniad Australia “Life and Style” section. I want a localised fix of whiny middle class people :(

Ah here we go. @GuardianAus, reflecting Australia’s rich cultural diversity. Oh, wait. guardian.co.uk/info/2013/may/…

@SnarkyPlatypus Je préfère être la maîtresse du matelas de la maîtresse de poing ou la paume.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Apparently Australia has “an important federal election” this year. As opposed to the other ones? Thanks, @GuardianAus!

sylmobile A .uk TLD, all sections except ‘news’ & ‘comments’ still UK Guardian… I mean, “launching” with a non-Australian sport section. Really?

via TweetDeck (retweeted on 7:13 AM, May 27th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

sylmobile Clive Palmer needs to build a replica of The Guardian of which Australians can be proud.

RT @juhasaarinen: I may be wrong, but it appears SEA used this trick: bit.ly/16YsHCO [It wouldn’t surprise me.]

via Janetter for Mac

“Sky News [UK] Android apps hacked by Syrian activists”, writes @juhasaarinen itnews.com.au/News/344588,sk…

@juhasaarinen I assume it’s another fisting metaphor.
