@mediahunter @waydomatic I won’t get around to watching Black Mirror until tomorrow night, via SBS On Demand.

thegrugq btw, big shout out to “units”, which is a fucking awesome Unix command that you probably don’t know about.

RT @michaelneale: Sometimes I think RAID is a pro-level troll. [THIS IS PURE INTERNET PHILOSOPHY, SO PAY HEED YOU ARSEHATS.]

via Janetter for Mac

Anyone who “trusts” their information to the internet has clearly never met a systems administrator or discussed their medication.

@michaelneale @RealNickHodge @SnarkyPlatypus LOOK YOU SICK FUCK I ALREADY HAVE ZEN-LIKE PATIENCE I AM WAITING FOR A RAID REBUILD FUCK YOU.

RT @waydomatic: Attention: Black Mirror Series 2 starts on SBS2 tonight at 9.30. Brilliant TV. // @mediahunter [OH THANK YOU THIS IS VITAL.]

@RealNickHodge Utterly insane, yes. Wonderful, also yes. Kinky, no.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge There’s nothing kinky about a modular kernel with hot-loadable modules.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge @SnarkyPlatypus Sadly, in my case, the equivalent to shearing is Linux kernel modprobe configuration.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to RealNickHodge

@RealNickHodge Indeed. And if you know how to do something, the gods know, you’ll end up having to do it.

@LexPlans @SnarkyPlatypus @NicholasFryer I think it’s because I DO have the sysadmin skills that I choose NOT to jailbreak devices.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LexPlans

@SnarkyPlatypus @NicholasFryer @LexPlans Also, jailbreaking iOS == given up most of its security advantage and take responsibility yourself.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

RT @SnarkyPlatypus: Apple’s iOS keyboard is a piece of crap. [Yes, what IS the iOS equivalent of Android’s SwiftKeys?]

@sortius @swm0904 Ah! Yeah, the subtleties in the stats make it easy to spin it in any direction, or just make mistakes. Happy days!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sortius

@swm0904 @sortius Or, now that I think about it, “mobile” is not a unit of measurement. So what aspect/metric of it are we talking about?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to swm0904

@swm0904 @sortius Hey, we’re linking to the raw @ABSStats, draw your own conclusions. “Grow” is now a clear word, y’see.

@SnarkyPlatypus Pas un mariage, non, mais une conférence sur la sécurité. C’est la même chose.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. L’Australie est devenu un endroit très étrange en effet. Je vais demander cette déclaration sur mes dépenses.

And I’ll bet I get into trouble for that one too.

@chrisbrownie Indeed. So someone else will run something else. Pitches have just been emailed to editors.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to chrisbrownie

@vealmince And thank you, there’s an op-ed sorted for this week. ;)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to vealmince

@chrisbrownie That’s what I like about @ABSStats. They’re not “remarkable findings”, they’re solid confirmation of reality.

Dear Punter, please stop lecturing the barmaid for not selling jugs of Pimms if you’re not actually intending to order one. Arsehat.

via Janetter for Mac

@witmol True enough. As I’ve said many times before, “Dull literalism will be the death of our species.”

via Janetter for Mac in reply to witmol

@witmol Thank you. Though I suspect that when I use “cognoscenti” I’m drifting into sarcasm. I can’t tell any more.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @DrMiaow: Chronic Trump Syndrome? [How about “Chronic Narcissistic Trump Syndrome (CNTS)”? Yes, that’s deliberate.]

via Janetter for Mac

Damn. I’ll have to make another errand to Katoomba today. That’s slightly irritating, but it’s a lovely day up here so not all bad.

via Janetter for Mac

@mjec Thanks. I’m not as familiar with the fine-grained details of FOI Act as I perhaps should be.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to mjec

mjec @stilgherrian FOI s 7(2A)(b) permits exemption purely on origin of the document without regard to the content. Hence summary of media exempt

I’m not really arguing that point, ‘cos that’d be the fallacy of “argument by personal ignorance”. I’m just trying to think it through.

via Janetter for Mac

The only reason I can think of is that the minister subsequently said something different, and this document would prove him a liar. Or…?

via Janetter for Mac

Wait. “Talking points” are what the minister would say publicly. What psychotic logic says what the minister would say can’t be said?

via Janetter for Mac

I probably should have done that at a higher resolution, but I think the point is made.

I wonder whether said AGD “analysis of media reporting” named journos and indicated whether they were friendly or not. That’d be a fun read.

via Janetter for Mac

“The same goes for an analysis of media reporting on the issue,” reports @amworldtodaypm. So that’s reassuring.

“Talking points about what effect PRISM would have on the privacy of Australians was considered too sensitive for public release.”

Tue plan, draft: A morning of comms and planning; an afternoon of writing, or perhaps podcast production, depending; quiet evening.

via Janetter for Mac

Tuesday, after a suitably pleasant sleep-in. The cicadas are already at full throttle. But, thankfully, no sign of the Giant Lunar Beavers.
