@Manic_Henry @OEHmedia @atlaslivingaust I just remembered that we had an IR motion-triggered webcam here one time. Must track it down.

@Manic_Henry @OEHmedia @atlaslivingaust Good idea. I’ll do so in the morning, and see if I can squeeze out a better image.

@Manic_Henry @OEHmedia Oh right! Well, I can provide a formal report to someone if that’s helpful.

@NuclearAnthro Indeed! It’s the first time I’d seen a wild quoll. A carnivore, so essentially a marsupial cat.

@jodiem @zdnetaustralia I was just thinking, yes, a much more practical “10 Things To Do This Month”.

via TweetDeck in reply to jodiem

@jodiem @zdnetaustralia Maybe I should out together a 45-minute session that I could present to small businesses.

@jodiem @zdnetaustralia Actually, that’s about targeted attacks, but the Top 35 list is still useful.

@jpwarren @hughstephens So you run a black flag ransomware campaign just before you launch your service. Problem sorted.

@hughstephens @jpwarren Yeah someone like Telstra could surely do this as an effective service for small business? Scale is the trick?

@aarghpirates The tools exist on Windows and OS X to automate it, though, so it’s not rocket science. It just had to be thought through.
