I meant more just musically, @PeteLawler @ChrissieM, but look at this stage I’ve obviously taken my pants off in readiness.

via Janetter for Mac

So, um, there’s “Goat Simulator: Nyan Goat”! Thanks, @PeteLawler @ChrissieM youtube.com/watch?v=fZYPKK…

via Janetter for Mac

I say, all power to whoever produced Nyan Cat, that VU meter is pegged at 100% right through the whole thing. [Adds to podcast mix.]

via Janetter for Mac

Has anyone done a mashup of Nyan Cat with the Goat Simulator theme yet, or do I have to do everything?

@alexkidman @SnarkyPlatypus @ClintonDucas Thank you, Alex, you’re such a wonderful little elf.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to alexkidman

@jon_lawrence Thanks. It didn’t last long, and neither did the waratah. They bloom infrequently. I’m very happy to have seen it.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

@SnarkyPlatypus @ClintonDucas If you ask @alexkidman nicely, he’ll point you to his lengthy blog post on this very issue.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@SnarkyPlatypus Maybe, but I’ve been stuck inside for nearly two weeks now. More or less.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That said, @jon_lawrence, it did snow here the October before last. flickr.com/search/?w=3389…

via Janetter for Mac

@jon_lawrence It’s 871m at Wentworth Falls village, we’re a couple metres below that. Snow is usually a little further west that here.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

@SnarkyPlatypus Now the word I’d have used. Glad I stayed in, though. I’m getting the podcast production done at least.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to retrogrrl

Winds are already gusting up to 80km/h at Mount Boyce, although the temperature has just risen there to 3C (apparent -5C).

via Janetter for Mac

For the rest of today: “A few showers, possible snow/sleet. NW winds 50 to 60km/h tending W.”

via Janetter for Mac

Ah. The weather forecast for the Upper Blue Mountains has been updated to “possible snow”.

via Janetter for Mac

Operational reasons my arse.

@jon_lawrence I suspect MEL is going to win this battle for my attention. AISA is usually worth going.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

@jon_lawrence Ah, clashes with both the AISA conference in MEL and @DiG_Festival NCL. I’ll add it to the problem list, ta.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

@jon_lawrence Wind’s from the NW here, and increasing to 70km/h overnight, gusting higher. Unless that changes we’re sleet, not snow.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jon_lawrence

It won’t snow here overnight because clouds are arsehats.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Mudgutz

Alex, who shares the cable with us, has also noticed degradation since the winds this week, but we can’t find a problem in that 200m length.

via Janetter for Mac

The gap there was because I ran into neighbour Alex, who says he’s been told that this IS the permanent fix.
