I think I can overhear the manager explaining why they’re bringing me things that aren’t really on the menu.

@R_Chirgwin @pblakez Hah. I won’t get to see that, and you know it.

@scenariogirl I’m trying not to think too much about the details.

The bit I love is Mr Rabbit, Minister for Women.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Except perhaps the stuff about Mr Rabbit punching walls and harassing gays. Let’s not actually forget that.

Dear Political Writers, the world has actually moved on since your hormone-addled student politics days. Your tribes mean nothing to us.

People who blather about “The Left” and “The Right” as if they’re still explanations for everything in the 21st Century.

RT @R_Chirgwin: Still re the Oz article: 40,000 square nautical miles is a lot less than it sounds. What’s the square root of 40,000? [15.]

@jkerrison We do. I’ll ping you next I have a decent Sydney time coming up. Tonight was only arranged at 0800 today.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to jkerrison

@R_Chirgwin Well, I do also have certain privileges here too…

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to R_Chirgwin

@scottcarson1957 Indeed. I haven’t had time to think through the many, many layers of gameplay that must be involved in this.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to scottcarson1957

@R_Chirgwin True. I didn’t want to do the 2-hour train trip for an 0920 Sunday flight, so I cashed in a free night at the airport hotel.

@scottcarson1957 We should chip in and buy the RAN a few GPS receivers. Or the Immigration Minister who thinks he’s MINDEF.

@scottcarson1957 As an aside, have you been watching the “fun” between Australia and Indonesia these recent weeks?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to scottcarson1957

Uhoh. I think I’m coming down with a cold.

@scottcarson1957 The US and UK airlines always seemed to have more fashionable uniform than Australian airlines. We lagged badly.

@scottcarson1957 Thanks, Scott. I admit, I do like some of the graphics and imagery from the Jet Age. And the Space Age.

@ChrissieM I would have been passing through Penrith at around 1230. Perhaps I did.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ChrissieM

@OaaSvc @SenatorLudlam Thanks very much. I have no idea who or what “Ticky Fullerton” is, however. No, really. So I guess I missed it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to OaaSvc

@joshgnosis Yeah, but I’m going to get ideas anyway. Dressing in bike gear is probably the least of our worries.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to joshgnosis

ben_hr I wish I had more time for blogging. I have a lot of poorly-formed ideas I would like to inflict on others.

@derekbarry Indeed, though I doubt many will really understand the proof-of-work block chain maths that keeps it (supposedly) secure.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to derekbarry

@derekbarry The Bitcoin Wikipedia entry is a good a place as any to understand, broadly speaking, the aims of the maths.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to derekbarry

@derekbarry Hah! The numbers refer to stuff that determines how long it takes to mine a new coin, how that slows over time etc.

@paulwallbank @R_Chirgwin In SFO I was once asked “What vendors do you cover?” My reply, “It’s not about vendors”, led to genuine confusion.
