@Manic_Henry @_crispinb @bunjaree Wow. Now I’m feeling special. It was strolling along the verandah in broad daylight! [Preens.]

via TweetDeck in reply to Manic_Henry

@Manic_Henry @_crispinb @bunjaree Hah! I am slowly becoming more thrilled with the sighting than I was at the time. Beautiful critter, too.

@ResignInShame Thanks. That’s the best image I could squeeze out of a distant phone shot.

@eldonnn @bunjaree That’s feasible. Though getting run over by a car would be more common, I suspect.

@ResignInShame In between. Cattish. That’s a garden chain leaning against a table on the right of the photo, so there’s a scale.

@evcricket Probably easier if you use a computer or a phone or something.

Quolls are bigger than I realised.

via TweetDeck

@_crispinb @bunjaree Yes. @Manic_Henry has reminded me how little evidence there is of them living up here.

via TweetDeck in reply to _crispinb

It took me a moment to grab my phone, and by then the quoll had strolled from the verandah to the bottom of the garden. (2/2)

via TweetDeck

My crappy quoll photo is up on @bunjaree’s website. First time I’d seen one in the wild, and it was 2m away. bunjareecottages.com.au/2015/12/01/bun… (1/2)

@SnarkyPlatypus Well, another journalist and I were discussing scrounging from a certain Shenzhen-based firm.

@jasemurphy Heh. I used to record phone calls with a speakerphone and a cardioid mic on a sort boom pointing down into it. Did the job.

via TweetDeck in reply to jasemurphy

@will_ock This is pretty much @R_Chirgwin’s suggestion. Oh well, I’ve got a working Android set-up for the moment.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@dobes @will_ock Well it works. I’ve been using Total Recall on an unrooted Android device quite successfully. Apart from one glitch.

via TweetDeck in reply to dobes

@R_Chirgwin @franksting Ah that would work, yes. Assuming I had the Mac with me. In which case I’d just use Skype and Ecomm’s Call Recorder.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@will_ock Yeah, that’s always classy.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@will_ock This explains why there’s apps that want to charge me for a 3-way call to record it their end and send me the MP3.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

@franksting NSW Surveillance Devices Act 2007 is the relevant legislation here, and any sensible journalist knows it well.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@franksting Not if you ask first. And even then, if you’re a party, only if you cause or allow the recording to be heard by anyone else.

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

@_crispinb Yes, yes, very good. [Pats gently.]

via TweetDeck in reply to _crispinb

@franksting I mean for recording the phone call. (Yes, I have all manner of gear for the rest of things.)

via TweetDeck in reply to franksting

Sorry, I should have been specific, @will_ock. I did indeed mean recording the phone call.

via TweetDeck in reply to will_ock

I’d been using Total Recall on Android. Very good, except when it failed to record a call yesterday for some random reason.
