@jonoabroad What A/V do you run on that Android device? Maybe download the .apk and give it a scan.

@franksting @PointZeroOne @kjmci @jonoabroad I wonder how many Androids visiting @newscomauHQ will end up as part of a mobile botnet.

Hey @newscomauHQ, you may want to check out your ad networks. Mobogenie? Orly? pic.twitter.com/7YtRjCH6D3 @jonoabroad

via Janetter for Mac

@jonoabroad That there’s an advert wanting to install it make me suspect it’s a dodgier version, possibly even trojanised.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad “Mobogenie is a manager for your Android Smartphone”, says their more official stuff, which sounds dodgy as all fuck.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad There’s stuff called Mobogenie listed as a PUP (potentially unwanted program) by some A/V firms. Spammy, privacy-stealing etc.

@madman_42 @Pozible The IBM model 026 and 029 aren’t that different, but our 029s were newer (of course) and didn’t jam as often.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to madman_42

@sw @Pozible Yes, but unlike so many other “up and to the right” charts, this one has a scale. For now, anyway.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to sw

@archoo You’re right, the kitten thing is a bit of a sideshow, but it’s still astounding that various websites were changed in response.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to archoo

I’ve updated the @Pozible project with a chart showing progress. It’s all explained at pozible.com/edict1 pic.twitter.com/w5DzzpnJx5

@cheshireb I find it unlikely that these 130 pages are deep maths.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to cheshireb

@acaderama I’m pretty sure it was PM&C only too, but I’m in the middle of video editing right now.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to acaderama

Mind you, taking an entire working week to look at 130 pages is more than a quarter of an hour per page. That seems very, very slow.

via Tweetbot for iOS

For folks pondering the Stop Tony Meow FOI, the decision-making time is looking at each of the 130 pages and deciding what to redact.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Have you just dribbled back from a long weekend? Dud you know that I’m resurrecting “The 9pm Edict”? pozible.com/edict1

via Tweetbot for iOS

RT @rashasman: You don’t need to know what you’re doing you just need to know more than the other people doing the same thing [True.]

via Tweetbot for iOS

Oh. Maybe I do actually know what I’m doing.

via Tweetbot for iOS

And even though the settings were the same as used previously. Oh well, adding in another production step.

via Tweetbot for iOS

Botheration. Somehow the video and audio recordings have gotten out if sync, even though they were recorded in the same app and file.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@alixstone @GreenJ Thank you. I don’t know what it’s about either.

@SnarkyPlatypus Bonjour. J’ai été obligé de déployer le canard d’urgence aujourd’hui. J’ai de la fièvre. Et vous?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

I wonder how that compared to the number of pages at PM&C on, say, Soapy the Ankle QC’s Freedom for Racism Draft Legislation.

via Janetter for Mac

How can 130 pages of documents about a silly joke indicate anything except advanced narcissism and paranoia by the PM and his people?

via Janetter for Mac

RT @tobiasziegler: meowception pic.twitter.com/EeCCscPx8W [Perhaps we need a Royal Commission into kitten photos.]

I agree with those who’ve suggested a @Pozible to get the $720 needed to get the actual documents. righttoknow.org.au/request/all_in…

No further duck-related information, sorry, @virag064 @CarmenAngerer @Max_in_Sydney @msjenjenjen, Emergency Duck must be protected.

RT @gusworldau: The idea is they slide down your throat. Shades of Linda Lovelace. [Are you sure? Ping @scottcarson1957.]

via Janetter for Mac

Ah, @scottcarson1957 has the answer to the “sliders” question, and it’s not complimentary.

via Janetter for Mac

Who decided that tiny hamburgers are called “sliders”, what is slidey about them, and how many times should they be punched in the face?

via Janetter for Mac

Graham Burke also thinks that being given “sliders”, that is, shitty miniature hamburgers, is “being treated like royalty”. Arsehat.

@oberonsghost Aw, I just got caught at a vulnerable moment.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to oberonsghost

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost No problems. But please, add “Organise proper data backups” to your to-do list, please. :)

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost Yep, and this photo shows the difference between IDE and SATA connectors. pic.twitter.com/7ChmWrtxTs

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost If you need/want to do it yourself, just take the drive into Jaycar, tell them you want a USB adpter for it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost Well the connectors look very different, but it’s likely written on the drive too, or look up the model number.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost It’s either an IDE or SATA connector on the drive, so you want either an IDE-to-USB or SATA-to-USB adapter.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost The specific thing will depend on the type of drive, but this stuff is standard work for computer tech shops.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to ErezGordon

@ErezGordon @oberonsghost Just take the hard drive out, get an adapter, and plug it into another computer. If HD is dead, though, it’s dead.
