@Taco_Lad @expectproblems Well to be honest I don’t watch much film or TV at all these days.

via TweetDeck in reply to Taco_Lad

@Taco_Lad @expectproblems I haven’t read or watched any of it. No interest. But I bear it no ill will.

via TweetDeck in reply to Taco_Lad

@expectproblems You should know better than to be different.

@PeteDotAscian @zdnetaustralia Oh thanks for that. Sometimes it all gets a bit forest-trees and The Phear sets in.

@RealNickHodge @NewtonMark @bastardsheep Shoosh! You’re not meant to reveal the location of the alien base.

via TweetDeck in reply to RealNickHodge

@NewtonMark @bastardsheep Yep, May 1982 to July 1987. I was there mid-1982 to late 1984, from memory. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Departmen…

Me at @zdnetaustralia: “Australia ‘may do dumb things’ with crypto in 2016: EFF” zdnet.com/article/austra… Possibly a disjointed rant by me.

@NewtonMark @bastardsheep So we actually ran the airports as well as air nav.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @bastardsheep I would imagine so. This was… when? Early 1980s, when for a brief period the CAA became the Dept of Aviation.

@bastardsheep @NewtonMark These days, of course, it’s just an intranet or some shit, not version-controlled loose-leaf binders.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@bastardsheep @NewtonMark My first full-time job was maintaining NOTAMs and maps and engineering specs and shit for SA-NT.

via TweetDeck in reply to bastardsheep

@NewtonMark I’m assuming approach-departure and the rest of it in the air is centralised somewhere these days?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark How does that work with the tower closed? Who’s doing ground control?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@OaaSvc Oh I was actually referring to a long hot shower. But I may grab some red, now that you mention it.

via TweetDeck in reply to OaaSvc

Well that’s improved things significantly.

@PMBarraclough @notsmartblog Sorry, I’m not trying to give you a hard time. :) I’m just fascinated by how this works.

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

@PMBarraclough Hah! May I recommend the @notsmartblog podcast on self-delusion. We fool ourselves constantly. youarenotsosmart.com

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

@PMBarraclough The rose-coloured glasses of nostalgia. :) We remember the best bits and imagine we always produced stuff that good.

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

@PMBarraclough There’s also a phenomenon that linguists call the recency illusion. We think ‘bad’ grammar is increasing when it’s not.

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

@PMBarraclough There’s that, yes. We saturate ourselves in every pissy little hostage-taking. I’m sure it’s bad for us.

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

@PMBarraclough Is it really any worse than it used to be, though? I use this photo to illustrate. pic.twitter.com/vubmW3iXN2

via TweetDeck in reply to PMBarraclough

Exactly, @interrogativus @JustJimWillDo @iPhoneBen. Something needs to be done.

via TweetDeck

I wish weird things would stop happening.

via TweetDeck

The consensus is that it is, and therefore it is. Thank you.

via TweetDeck

Is it that time yet?

via TweetDeck

@joneaves Which is more than I do. I just have Feelpinions.

via TweetDeck in reply to joneaves

@joneaves [Nods] Well, my brief is to stir the pot, and that’s done. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to joneaves

@joneaves I guess my point is that the devil is in the detail, and the detail work hasn’t been good.

via TweetDeck in reply to joneaves

@joneaves I am willing to be convinced I’m wrong.

via TweetDeck in reply to joneaves

@zackster Except that’s not the way the data retention works. It’s logging users’ IP, not the servers. But yes.

Me af @zdnetaustralia: “Australia ‘may do dumb things’ with crypto in 2016: EFF” zdnet.com/article/austra…

via TweetDeck

Column filed for @zdnetaustralia. It contains a number of cybers, including cyber stupidity.

via TweetDeck

OK, back to the word-shovelling. Baxoon.

via TweetDeck

Plodding through the writing. What sort of idiot does this for a living?

via TweetDeck

Fri plan: Write for @zdnetaustralia; clean up loose ends on a certain geek project; bookkeeping; TGIF; quiet night. with luck.

via TweetDeck

Hmmm. Well, that’s a lot better than it was before. It’s not brilliant, but it’ll have to do.

via TweetDeck

Repairing the internet.

via TweetDeck

@jeamland No, it’s dead calm. I just switched everything over to 4G and that’s fine. The DSL has just gone all lossy.

via TweetDeck in reply to jeamland

Hmmm. My internets have gone wobbly.

via TweetDeck

@GBoroughGrowler True enough. I suppose anal bleaching is much like premium chocolate in that regard.

via TweetDeck in reply to GBoroughGrowler

I mean, the core point is that I don’t think I need to change the colour of my anus.

via TweetDeck

@jperlow So this is pretty much a range of ideas that I don’t want in my head right now.

via TweetDeck in reply to jperlow

@SnarkyPlatypus I think I kinda get why people might want it, but I am still a bit confused.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

@jperlow I’m not knocking it as such. I just don’t need it at 0800 on a Friday.

via TweetDeck in reply to jperlow

I’m quite happy with the colour of my anus.

via TweetDeck

I just got a pop-up advert for anal bleaching. :(

via TweetDeck

It looks like it’s going to be a bright sunny day here in the upper Blue Mountains. Light winds and 23C.

via TweetDeck

Fri plan, draft: Write for @zdnetaustralia; clean up loose ends on a geek project; bookkeeping; TGIF; quiet night. with luck.

@ResignInShame It’s a busy one for me, I know that much.

via TweetDeck in reply to ResignInShame

So what dickhead things have happened overnight?

via TweetDeck

Friday. There shall be no respite. You brought this on yourself, you know. Friday.
