Mt Boyce apparent temperature right now is -2.6C. Fuck the lot of you.

Having made certain gas bottles talk to certain plumbing at night when I am freezing, I am feeling just so butch right now.

via Janetter for Mac

@franksting @jplonie I read that off the apparent temperature at Mt Boyce weather station just now.

Yeah, I so you people in the city take this shit for granted. instagram.com/p/cyjVmAiFmm/

Seriously, holding a LED touch in your teeth while persuading an LPG bottle with a left-hand thread to behave itself in -0.9C temps…

via Janetter for Mac

Oh you arseholes have no idea how much you take energy for granted.

via Janetter for Mac

Also, I see that I’ve just run out of LPG for the building, so I may freeze to death* overnight. (*I’m using hyperbole, arsehats.)

via Janetter for Mac

Friday night, 7pm, and I’m editing a podcast. I seriously need to get my life in order.

What if you alter a bank’s credit contract before you sign and return? In this Russian case, the punter wins. So far. smh.com.au/money/borrowin…

@snerdish @kimogrady1 Oh dear. Well, they were different days.

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Can Australia’s digital spooks escape an NSA-level backlash?” zdnet.com/can-australias…

RT @cafedave: Are you on the lists for the other parties? Starting to wonder… [Me too. Surely they have media lists better than this, tho?]

via Janetter for Mac

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Is there anything Tones won’t kiss? [So, we need a Buzzfeed-style list. “Ten Things Tony Won’t Kiss.”]

via Janetter for Mac

Campaign emails received thus far, Day 5: Labor 217; Coalition nil; Greens nil; ISOC-AU 1. Not counting individual emails replying to me.

via Janetter for Mac

@kimogrady1 @snerdish Ah, well, I’ll have to bow to your (presumably) superior knowledge on that one.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

I should mix a few samples from that into the Corrupted Nerds theme, as a tribute.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: DMob Acid - We call it Acieed youtube.com/watch?v=Krfy5Q… @Asher_Wolf [Yes, that would be the one.]

via Janetter for Mac

Dear Clients, there’s still time to pay your bills before the weekend. No need to hold back now.

via Janetter for Mac

@kimogrady1 @snerdish True enough about AGD being in there now. I’d love to have been a fly on the wall for those turf-war negotiations!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

RT @Asher_Wolf: ASD. I wonder how they pronounce their new acronym aloud? [If it were ASiD, we could shout “Aciiiiiiiid! Hands in the air!”]

via Janetter for Mac

@mukimu Heh. Well, it was Defence Public Affairs, but yes, they recorded the call “for quality and coaching purposes”. 24-month contract.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mukimu

@kimogrady1 @snerdish The name change, by itself, can’t change ASD’s operational limits. My understanding is legislation would be needed.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EX_V19

By the way, DSD being renamed ASD was part of the Defence White Paper 2013 announced 3 May. defence.gov.au/whitepaper2013/

via Janetter for Mac

SnarkyPlatypus Why is the whole media turning into Buzzfeed?

via Tweetbot for iOS (retweeted on 3:51 PM, Aug 9th, 2013 via Janetter for Mac)

We now say “Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), formerly the Defence Signals Directorate (DSD)”. I checked. Also, they recorded the call.

via Janetter for Mac

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It’s not every day I get to mention Fangataufa.

ASRC1@TonyAbbottMHR please stop calling seekers illegal, I don’t like it”. God.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @glengyron: Airships and they would have won a vote. [I’m with you on that. There’s such unimaginative transport policies here.]

via Janetter for Mac

Also expect to hear earnest voiceovers about Labor’s campaign running out of puff, or steaming ahead. Ha ha ha ha fucking ha.

via Janetter for Mac

We can expect to see steam trains on television tonight. Steam trains are a core part of Labor’s plans for Australia’s future.

Bearing in mind that my @zdnetaustralia column is op-ed not news, and other factors, I shall riff off the Lavabit shutdown and stuff.

RT @BBAnimals: do NOT put dogs in tights pic.twitter.com/Gca3Nb4XWx [Also an important warning. HT @jonoabroad.]

via Janetter for Mac

Previous tweet HT @sylmobile. I was already aware of this serious security issue, but I hadn’t passed on the warning, so thank you.

@OaaSvc For best results, Google “neocon sex kitten”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OaaSvc

So @dobes, slideshow stories always do well, right? So I assume we’re going with Top 10 Neocon Sex Objects? I could go 12, actually.

via Janetter for Mac

Thank you, @hughstephens @OaaSvc @jeamland @dobes @gavincostello, it’s Lavabit and/or Top 10 Neocon Sex Objects so far.

@RealNickHodge Well it keeps you off the streets, I suppose.

RT @ABCNews23: Alan Jones interview: Revealing, honest and warm. pic.twitter.com/IfsVAyZp4i [Does this cross a line? I don’t think so.]

@hughstephens @zdnetaustralia While I understand where your heart is, I probably don’t need help writing crap. I do that already. :P

I’m still not sure what to write about for @zdnetaustralia. I had a couple brilliant ideas yesterday and then I forget them.

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan: Update “Corrupted Nerds” website; comms catchup; write for @zdnetaustralia; re-schedule August; production for “The 9pm Election”.

Of course it’s now, at the end of the three-day iTunes approval process, that I notice the typos. Oh well, they’ll update in due course.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @RatbagsDotCom: I misread that as “9pm Erection” and thought “Now, there’s a man with a well controlled timetable”. [Yep, I’m organised.]

via Janetter for Mac

Fri plan, draft: Quick comms catchup; write for @zdnetaustralia; re-schedule August (until December?); production for “The 9pm Election”.

I’m annoyed that I slept in, but I figured that would probably happen given last night’s irritating little series of adventures.

via Janetter for Mac

Friday. Bleeding heck.
