I hope the ECG sensors aren’t too fussy about location.

I can’t be bothered taking a photo ‘cos that would mean stuffing around with lighting. Suffice it to say, I’d never make astronaut.

via Janetter for Mac

That took longer than expected. And it looks far less organised than the imagery. But data logging has commenced.

@reselsnark @Sam_Hickey Nothing needed in the hair. Two ECG sensors on the temples, one on the forehead.

@Sam_Hickey Indeed. I had a talk-through, and there’s step by step instructions. But there’s quite a few sensors, yes.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to Sam_Hickey

RT @Sam_Hickey: are you doing that at home or in a sleep lab? [Not in a sleep lab. A hotel room ‘cos I happen to be in Sydney. Unaided.]

Either way, I shall live tweet the Operation of the Medical Apparatus later this evening.

@EdwardMandla Anyway, if businesses bring income and employment to a local area, the council is surely already listening closely.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EdwardMandla

@EdwardMandla And board directors already have a vote in their local government. I can see we won’t change each other’s minds.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EdwardMandla

@EdwardMandla Sadly, this is mostly reinforcing my perception that local government is little more than self-serving rent-seeking.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EdwardMandla

@EdwardMandla What’s this “household” and “partners” rubbish? It’s a democracy of PEOPLE. Individual actual humans. Not made-up entities.

@EdwardMandla @JennaPrice @jason_a_w The very idea that some people get another vote ‘cos they’re also “business people” is abhorrent.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EdwardMandla

@EdwardMandla @JennaPrice @jason_a_w We really need to merge all the local councils in the metro basin. One vote per citizen. Sorted.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to EdwardMandla

@EdwardMandla @JennaPrice @jason_a_w They old furphy. They already have a vote, as a citizen. An extra vote ‘cos paying “more” money? FFS!

@jonoabroad @kpfaulkner In any event, the Austeyr is standard issue in the Australian Army. If it’s an assault rifle, that’s what it’ll be.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @kpfaulkner I have never used the Austeyr. It is not my favourite weapon, for various personal reasons.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to jonoabroad

@jonoabroad @kpfaulkner My favourite gun? I didn’t know I had one. But I can’t quite see what they have. Presumably the F88 AusSteyr?
