Westward ho! With a bunch of weekenders who have no idea what “quiet carriage” means, and this lacks the signage.

I’m glad so many people appreciate my predicament.

@scottcarson1957 Thank you. I’m a tolerant man, but even I have my limits.

I have found a pub that is capable of serving me both food and beer, so there’s that.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I have just found a pub whose kitchen is not open on Sundays. I will return later to burn it to the ground.

@semibogan @juhasaarinen I appreciate how you make things simple for me.

My emergency duck has been sabotaged. The quiet duck spot has been inundated with 300+ rugby fans for a rowdy thing.

Sun plan, redraft: Chores (done); tram to Haymarket; lunch; train to Wentworth Falls, sulking en route; wine; re-plan the week ahead.

The nearby cafe’s kitchen is closed already. What the fuck is wrong with these people?

@JoshuaWithers Ta. I’ll have a squizz and get back to you later today. I’m rushing to lunch right now and don’t have the docs handy.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JoshuaWithers

@JoshuaWithers … but I’m happy to look at that pricing if there’s cheaper on the market here.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JoshuaWithers

@JoshuaWithers I’ve gone under the cheapest actual Australian retailer I could find, and then there’s a 2-year warranty covering courier…

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JoshuaWithers

@JoshuaWithers Where can you get it new for $420? And yes it’s new, as the tweet said, a warranty replacement.

Re the Zoom H6 for sale, I accept credit cards, and if you’re in the Sydney metro area I can deliver in person. Or not, if you prefer.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I’m selling a Zoom H6 audio recorder, overkill for my needs. Brand new warranty replacement in (opened) box + 2y warranty. $460.

@scottcarson1957 I agree, the Manifesto is key to the whole lifestyle.

I’m surprised no-one’s tried to sell me a virtual desktop yet. I guess they value the bruise-free nature of their own face.

Hey The Other Kind of Developers, can anybody recommend a good ssh client for an Android tablet?

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@PeteLawler Look, I just need to get into a shell on my remote Linux server. From an iPad. That said, I do gave an Android tablet here.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to PeteLawler

@scottcarson1957 That’s pretty much my option, yes. Also, stop washing and shaving and go live in the mountains. Oh wait.

Hey Developers, can anybody recommend a good ssh client for the iPad?

@scottcarson1957 Such things aren’t open on the weekend. It’s like the third world here. Wait, no, the opposite.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to scottcarson1957

@OaaSvc Yes, but not because of that. Because @crikey_news use the word “terrorism” in a headline I’ve been labelled a Zionist. Hilarious.

OK, now to fix my temporary vision problem. The procedure calls for mineral turpentine and methylated spirits, in that order.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@swearyanthony Well, I’m making that assumption. I’d need a thing to add a USB port in any event. All. Too. Hard.

@erkpod @carolduncan a plus the whole 6-channel thing would be very useful for certain kinds of work. The Zoom website shows configurations.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to erkpod

@erkpod @carolduncan a superior all round. Mics have bigger surface, more rugged, better interface, hard faders. Beautiful kit.

@carolduncan It’s brilliant gear, yes. A powerful tool. But I’ve found that I can use a Zoom H2 for my simple needs.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to carolduncan

@virag064 Well Zoom do now make video cameras. Have a squizz at their website.

@reselsnark @leslienassar Indeed. Alas, I don’t gave one, and the budget for new hardware is empty.

If you produce a podcast and you live in Australia, you may want go see my immediately previous tweet about a new Zoom H6 recorder for sale.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I’ve decided to sell my Zoom H6 recorder. It’s overkill for my needs. Brand new warranty replacement in (opened) box + 2y warranty. $460.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

@blahjedi “Hitherto”? Apple’s idea of autocorrect is hilarious. Anyway, I’m sure the meaning came across.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to blahjedi

@JL_Whitaker I don’t have the budget for that. It’s easier for me to rearrange the schedule.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to JL_Whitaker

@blahjedi Kinda, apart from the ability to run OS X software. Thanks for hitherto offer, though.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to blahjedi

@leslienassar Thanks. Fortunately Tuesday is a conference all day, and Monday is planning. Wednesday is the killer, ‘cos I’ll have to write.

RT @mpesce: did it die? [It did. Graphics card died. That’s integrated with the logic board so all that’s being replaced. Also keyboard.]

I guess it’ll be a chance to check out some iPad and Android tablet apps. Though I can’t read data off the encrypted Time Machine backup.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

It’ll be interesting to see if I can plan things so that I can still work without my MacBook Pro until about Wednesday.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Sun plan, draft: Laundry; fix glasses; re-plan week ahead (a); deploy emergency duck; afternoon and evening TBA, depending on (a).

Is there some kind of support group for people who read ‘mX’?

@jeamland This app could be called UberUber. It would ask why you have requested an Uber and offer suggestions for improving your life.
