RT @zackster Seriously a story on @theage suggesting trying Skype instead of a mobile call on a congested network at the races? [Oh clever!]

via Janetter for Mac

@Asher_Wolf Thanks. You shan’t have long to wait. It’ll be done and online by 2000 AEDT.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Asher_Wolf

@Selyst That whole story is such a debacle!

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Selyst

@MDI05 Indeed, though that’s a very different problem of course.

@vanbadham @R_Chirgwin @carolduncan @SeandBlogonaut @Cacotopos … others have certainly crowdfunded getting to conferences. Look around.

via Janetter for Mac

@vanbadham @R_Chirgwin @carolduncan @SeandBlogonaut @Cacotopos I wouldn’t follow my model per se, ‘cos the aims are different, but yes…

The next Corrupted Nerds podcast, on electronic voting, is all but finished. Just waiting on sponsor stuff. Pleased.

@LapTop006 Oh ta, Geoff Huston’s stuff is always easy to find. ;)

RT @petercoffee: Grinding up pavement / rev’g to gravel isn’t even just Texas thing. 3rd world USA - ft.com/intl/cms/s/0/f… [Wow that bad?]

via Janetter for Mac

@jpwarren Yep, I’ve been meaning to post all that at some point. Do feel free to remind me next week.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jpwarren

@LapTop006 For some reason I can’t connect to that just now. A mystery for when I’m not on (self-imposed) deadline.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LapTop006

Texas is letting some paved roads revert to gravel. Not a good sign. nytimes.com/2013/09/13/us/… HT @petercoffee

@NewtonMark Mine have all been dominated by conferences, so long days with far too much American hospitality. America is dangerous.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark If I could trade the boring part of podcast production with the fact that I’d just have been in the US again… Tough choice.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to NewtonMark

@LapTop006 It would be lovely if you could name and shame, but I suspect not, right?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LapTop006

I use a digital audio workstation (DAW) called Reaper, @jpwarren, which is complete overkill for what I currently do. reaper.fm

MT @NewtonMark: The OneWorld lounge has hijacked 1.1.1.1 for their WiFi captive portal. Jesus goddamn christ. [What the actual fudge?]

via Janetter for Mac

Note to self: That audio channel will eventually appear in the mix if you turn off that button labelled “Mute”.

@caseyjohnellis @kcarruthers You are not helping, Casey. Not in the least little bit.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to caseyjohnellis

@jasonlangenauer You need to look at the problem from the other end.

@adm_76 Agreed. Indeed, these exact issues are discussed in the podcast interview. And it will definitely be online later today.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to adm_76

@franksting You really must listen to the podcast when it’s done.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to franksting

By a happy coincidence, the next Corrupted Nerds podcast is about electronic voting. I hope to finish it this afternoon.

@jplonie @jeamland There’s a difference between riling and thermonuclear.

@jeamland I am quite capable of riling myself, thank you.

It strikes me, @jperlow, that competition for thin/light was once vital, the public indoctrinated, then no-one noticed when they were done.

@LaTrioli @BreakfastNews It’s an odd existence there in breakfast TV land. Happy 5th to you and the team. [Waves.]

via Janetter for Mac in reply to LaTrioli

Oh right, so it’s ABC @BreakfastNews’ birthday as well as the NSA’s? I always knew there was something odd about @LaTrioli.

via Janetter for Mac

RT @adm_76: for who? [That’s classified.]

via Janetter for Mac

Apparently 4 November is the NSA’s 61st birthday. I hope there’s cake.
