Targetgate latest. Try not to laugh too hard. twitter.com/Targetaus/stat…

via Janetter for Mac

@PointZeroOne My eventual aim is to have it be a weekly thing. That will once more be the target for a subscriber drive starting soon.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne Yeah I keep forgetting that non-time-critical podcasts may not be listened to for weeks. Thanks for the reminder.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

@BundyB @PointZeroOne Well there is that, yes. The Edict in particular I spend WAY too long on, given the original idea.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BundyB

@PointZeroOne Well, @5at5daily is often a little early, but also often not there at all. [Shrugs.] But the Edict needs to be more regular.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

@PointZeroOne That saddens me a little. Having worked in live media, delivering “late” carries a very, very deep sense of failure.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to PointZeroOne

@GordyPls Would it be cruel to now refer to that tweet as a failure?

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

There is something wrong with @jeamland.

via Janetter for Mac

@GordyPls I am not understanding your presumably excellent tweet. I am therefore sad and confused.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to GordyPls

I have decided that the next episode of “The 9pm Edict” will be on Tuesday, not Monday, because schedule.

@R_Chirgwin Oh don’t worry about that, they’re like $2.50 or something. And you presumably had a bunch of laundry to carry.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to R_Chirgwin

I do like Wednesday’s forecast of “intermittent c…”@j_hutchch. That’s kinda how Sydney is every day, though.

The fourth wave of storm cells bypassed the upper Blue Mountains, it seems. Wave five looks like it might bring a little more rain.

There was a gap in the third wave of storm cells, so we missed out. There’s now a fourth wave coming in soon, and a fifth beyond that.

via Janetter for Mac

@BruceHore Actually, our storms are coming in from the north-west today, so you’ve got your own separate bunch down there.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to BruceHore

@juhasaarinen Twitter is broken, eh? I shall notify the media. No wait.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to juhasaarinen

And that’s the second storm cell gone. There’s a few more coming now, and they seem to be getting bigger.

via Janetter for Mac

The second stormfront has just hit. This is the one with a bit of grunt.

@1johnhampshire That’s really quite funny. Even if I “dig out detail”, there’s no way to tell what is or is not “dodgy”.

via Janetter for Mac in reply to 1johnhampshire

I know. I’ll decide whether to install the new firmware or not by running a Twitter poll. My security and privacy will be assured.

via Janetter for Mac

The person who made that Android comment was laughing. They also work for [AGENCY REDACTED], which makes it only slightly* creepy.

via Janetter for Mac

Still, as I discussed with some infosec types the other day, “Stop being so precious about your ‘security’. It runs Android, FFS.”

via Janetter for Mac

So, new firmware was indeed released last weekend. But how can I tell whether this is what I just downloaded? I can’t.

via Janetter for Mac

“Improved network stability when on roaming” sounds legit. As does “_spcseas_” inserted into the file name. And it’s a nice blue.

via Janetter for Mac

It’s all OK, though. Magic internet pixies will ensure that my phone will only download and install legitimate software.
