RT @RealNickHodge: @stilgherrian or, if you feel like going vegan, you can eat an elephant [Wot!?]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

RT @MikeCarlton01: Taronga Zoo, but it can be a bit of a struggle. [God, you’re as bad as @RealNickHodge. You should reconsider.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

RT @RealNickHodge: Taronga. [Yeah I’d kinda been assuming someone else had already killed, dressed and cooked the kangaroo.]

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Looking ahead, I have been asked to find somewhere in Sydney where excellent kangaroo can be eaten on Thursday night.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

I have been branded a softcock and ridiculed by the assembled townsfolk.

Even though Phil’s advice was “Keep drinking, there are more lasers,” I have retired to the safety of my room.

@bbotezatu @_GlennCollier Hah! I suspect there are still some very different attitudes between Bucharest and Bangkok.

via TweetDeck in reply to bbotezatu

RT @timpoliti: @stilgherrian By “fucking automangle” I assume you meant “duck wing quirkabhow”. [Correct.]

via TweetDeck

OH, from MC: “Keep drinking, we do have the final of the laser tag.”

Not lover, loser. Fucking automangle.

Yes, there is a spreadsheet on the big screen during this dinner we are such lovers. instagram.com/p/zZi0UXiFjG/

@OaaSvc Nah fuck that. Me and another guy are explaining that we’re from a parallel Earth that’s exactly the same as this one.

@OaaSvc @mibus I have confirmed that I can obtain broadcast-quality audio of the two keynotes. I’ve no idea when I’ll get time to edit.

via Plume for Android in reply to OaaSvc

Time to pop down for a pre-dinner drink, I think.

DystopianYA “Wait,” I whispered breathily. “We don’t need to have sex. Overthrowing the government is just as good a marker for growing up.”

via Twitter Web Client (retweeted on 5:55 PM, Feb 22nd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

@OaaSvc @mibus Yeah I’ve just checked, Recording to MP3 with auto-level from the audience. It’s surveillance-grade audio only.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

@OaaSvc @mibus I recorded the two keynote discussions, but at reference quality only. I doubt they’d stand up to podcast use.

RT @R_Chirgwin: So the question becomes what is the best approach to writing up the data retention discussion? [Emoji.]

RT @swan_legend: .@SenatorLudlam calls on crowd to go see Citizenfour. Seconded. [Is there an edit without Greenwald in it?]

via TweetDeck

Ludlam, asked about the NBN: “No, If we start on the NBN, I’ll burst into tears in front of you and that’s what you’ll write up.”

via TweetDeck

R_Chirgwin Someone behind me. Shorten “has rarely missed an opportunity to miss an opportunity. @SenatorLudlam “I wish I’d said that.”

via YoruFukurou (retweeted on 4:56 PM, Feb 22nd, 2015 via TweetDeck)

Ludlam says he knows for a fact that there’s real disquiet in the ALP caucus over data retention, including quite senior members.

via TweetDeck

@swan_legend @paulwallbank Note which bits are inside the quotes. :) “Opponents” makes no sense in context.

via TweetDeck in reply to swan_legend

Ludlam is letting his deep, deep cynicism show in front of a room full of journalists. He jokes that he’ll regret this.

via TweetDeck

Ludlam: Proponents of data retention are “lucky they have an incompetent Attorney-General and a bully as Prime Minister.”

via TweetDeck

“[REDACTED],” said @SenatorLudlam.

via TweetDeck

Ludlam’s inquiry into the Telecommunications (Interception and Access) Act tables its report on 18 March. aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_…

via TweetDeck

Ah, the JPCIS report into data retention is scheduled to be tabled this coming Friday 27 February. aph.gov.au/Parliamentary_…

via TweetDeck

Being reverse-heckled by @SenatorLudlam. Again.

via TweetDeck

Ludlam is doing a fine overview of the history of data retention policy development.

via TweetDeck

Ludlam says the feel of the data retention debate right now is much like that around the internet filter a few years about.

via Twitter Web Client

Anyway, I don’t have time to worry about that now. I have information to absorb.

via TweetDeck

@swearyanthony @OaaSvc @dez_blanchfield I suspect that could have been a strategy a couple weeks ago. I’d need a soldering iron first now.

via TweetDeck in reply to swearyanthony

That said, @dez_blanchfield @OaaSvc, Apple will always replace them under AppleCare. Except this machine has clocked over the 3-year mark.

via TweetDeck in reply to dez_blanchfield

@darrenyatesau Nah, it’s the DC side, just next to the Magsafe plug.

via TweetDeck in reply to darrenyatesau

Yep, @OaaSvc @dez_blanchfield, moving as much as I do, the DC side’s cable frays at one end or the other. They last about 12 to 16 months.

Bitdefender has done its own survey in Australia. I think I’ve seen this in a press release. instagram.com/p/zY0fspCFjZ/

Assistant Commissioner Morris has zoomed off, and we’ve gone straight into a security and network management session.

via TweetDeck

@Damneus @ClaireRPorter It’s about $33 per customer request. These figures are all known.

via TweetDeck in reply to Damneus

Morris’ concluding remarks before the Q&A. instagram.com/p/zYvcbXCFpD/

via Instagram

Morris notes that 41% of the IP addresses accessing “serious” material in that case weren’t retained, so off the hook.

Morris is about to present three of the case studies from the AFP submission to JPCIS.

via TweetDeck

Currently the AFP pays about $1.5 million a year to telcos to cover the costs of getting access to telco data.

Morris stresses that it’s not the free-for-all that some fear. instagram.com/p/zYt-u0CFmO/

Morris is talking through these issues now. Stressing “limited” nature of it all. instagram.com/p/zYtuZiiFlv/

@R_Chirgwin Well that sort of thing is bound to happen when you have so many arsehats in the one place.

@Andrew_Zammit @profsarahj There’s at least the NSW Coroner’s inquest. I believe there’s at least one more again.

An earlier tweet was meant to include the word “thus”. Please do the needful.

By the way, @ClaireRPorter, we’re using the hashtag , despite any official statement to the contrary.

RT @gths: Everyone seems fascinated by my milk woes. [Well, any of your fluids, really. Do continue.]

via TweetDeck

@ClaireRPorter I’ll be popping over shortly. It’s only a few kilometres from where I am.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClaireRPorter

Of course, they’ll be questioning Crusader Rabbit about the report without actually having seen it yet. And this the framing is complete.

via TweetDeck

I do hope some of the press gallery report what the Martin Place Siege report actually says, rather than what Crusader Rabbit says it says.

via TweetDeck

T minus 25 minutes and counting.

via TweetDeck

@ClaireRPorter It’s Assistant Commissioner Tim Morris, actually. National manager of High Tech Crime Operations.

via TweetDeck in reply to ClaireRPorter

That’s the first of several reports on the Martin Place Siege to appear. The NSW Coroner has one to come too. And I gather there are others.

via TweetDeck

It’s out. “Martin Place Siege: Joint Commonwealth - New South Wales Review” dpmc.gov.au/pmc/publicatio…

via TweetDeck

RT @gths: what… the milk went weird two days before the used-by date [End times.]

@posty @SenatorLudlam Yes, a discussion panel would have been good, but 40+ tech journos as your audience is pretty solid too.

@Steve_Lockstep @joannejacobs I haven’t seen a rat in four years here, but I’d assume there were some in the towns.

via TweetDeck in reply to Steve_Lockstep

@joannejacobs Well respect to the lizards, obviously, but there’s not too much wrong with an antechinus. Except that they shit everywhere.

via TweetDeck in reply to joannejacobs

@kevthecamel The images that come up with a Google search for “mouse” and “antechinus” show the differences very clearly.

via TweetDeck in reply to kevthecamel

@kevthecamel Yep, shape of head, of ears, of colour (well, with the species we have here), the way they move, their sheer boldness.

via TweetDeck in reply to kevthecamel

@joannejacobs It’s an antechinus, not a mouse. They’re handy carnivores, who eat up the spiders and other annoyances.
