@semibogan Petrol. It’s a little Honda 6kVA job.

@semibogan Sadly no. Just making sure we have electricity in the morning.

Ooh! Suddenly remembering that I need to burn some dinosaurs.

via TweetDeck

@drspacejunk Meh. I wasn’t going to sleep much anyway, because I have a ton of things to do tomorrow.

via TweetDeck in reply to drspacejunk

@drspacejunk Mt doctor has been working* very hard* to do the opposite.

via TweetDeck in reply to drspacejunk

Mr @jkerrison have an podcast, and it be called “Prompt”. kerrisonmedia.com/prompt/

via TweetDeck

@jkerrison Doesn’t it just! And Prompt looks really quite interesting. I’ll load ‘em in and listen tomorrow. (I have music on now.)

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

The spider is still at large, yes, @drspacejunk. But I’ve got the lights on now.

via TweetDeck in reply to drspacejunk

Well, I have only one thing to say at this point. stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

@staticsan @retrogrrl You know it’s the little once that’ll kill you, yeah?

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

@jkerrison Hang on, Kerro, I’ll be with you when I’ve finished being a drama queen.

via TweetDeck in reply to jkerrison

One morning I woke up in the The Studio at @bunjaree to the sensation of a huntsman spider walking across my face.

via TweetDeck

I could take a DNA swab from the phone, @yewenyi, but there’s no telling what else that’ll find. twitter.com/yewenyi/status…

via TweetDeck

I AM AWAKE NOW.

via TweetDeck

Well, so much for unwinding before bed.

I was bitten by a black house spider as a kid, and my forearm was swollen to twice its usual size for about a week and it hurt like hell.

via TweetDeck

I’m pretty sure it was a black house spider, which is similar but different.australianmuseum.net.au/image/black-ho… But it was dark.

via TweetDeck

I’m pretty sure it was not a male Sydney-Funnel-Web because it didn’t seem fat and hairy enough. australianmuseum.net.au/image/sydney-f…

via TweetDeck

I’m actually OK with spiders, except: 1. It was stalking me. 2. We’re been warned about Sydney Funnel-Webs, which we have here.

via TweetDeck

So, um, I baffed the spider off the table, but I didn’t have the lights on, and now I don’t know where the fuck it is.

The recording of “The 9pm Edict” podcast will be streamed live exactly 24 hours from now. stilgherrian.com/edict/live3/ pic.twitter.com/KNxvAX5JNu

via TweetDeck

@NewtonMark I really don’t think it should go beyond an hour. But then I suppose it’s the last one before a re-think. [Shrugs.]

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Meh. I’ll worry about it tomorrow. I’ll worry about something else now.

via TweetDeck

Wondering how I’ll fit everything into tomorrow’s podcast.

@andrewdotnich I’m sure it’s within His power to issue a recall.

via TweetDeck in reply to andrewdotnich

God should smite @andrewdotnich, that’s who God should smite. He knows why.

via TweetDeck

@GordyPls If there is a God, I know what He should do now.

And now the rain has stopped, and the Sun shines brightly, as the thunderstorm grumbles its way down the Mountains to Sydney.

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin @garystark The lightning has already passed, and the rain is easing. We’re done here. @BOM_NSW radar is delayed 10 mins, IIRC.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@gths Even more so when you’re sitting under it.

via TweetDeck in reply to gths

@garystark @R_Chirgwin Thanks, Gary, but “dry” may not be an option. I have to fuel the generator at some point.

via TweetDeck in reply to garystark

@R_Chirgwin The lightning patterns seem to be passing just to the north of us.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

Oh. Yes, @R_Chirgwin, that last pattern was substantially closer. And louder. pic.twitter.com/fBVItRuiAo

via TweetDeck

I say, this is rather mesmerising when you zoom in. lightningmaps.org/realtime pic.twitter.com/TIWW18GlnP

via TweetDeck

@R_Chirgwin There’s noting within 1500m yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I dunno. I don’t have a feel for that. But I have to fuel the generator anyway. What’s the URL of the lightning strike thingo?

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin It’s a ringside seat tonight. These lightning patterns should come with sn epilepsy warning.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

The path of the biggest storm cell takes it straight over the top of @bunjaree, and such that we go through it diagonally, so longer.

via TweetDeck

Ah yes, the REAL storm is about to arrive.

via TweetDeck

@sylmobile @R_Chirgwin Yep. I won’t be able to be sociable, because I’ll be prepping the podcast. But I’ll definitely be there.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

@sylmobile @R_Chirgwin Hang on, what’s going on? I haven’t been told about any need to be anywhere at any time.

via TweetDeck in reply to sylmobile

Thunder. And what seems to be the start of the pleuting.

via TweetDeck

@Karolus_P This hasn’t been made clear as yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to Karolus_P

There’s a theory extant that suggests that I should do the chores while dressed as a donkey after two lines of coke.

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus @garystark Oh. I was thinking more in terms of weeks.

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

Pondering how long you should wait after meeting someone before you use the words “stab them in the face”.

via TweetDeck

Chores are starting to happen.

via TweetDeck

Ah yes good excellent I’m sure that coffee will make the hard drive run faster.

via TweetDeck

God there are some useless people in the world.

via TweetDeck

@myrcurial Oh you don’t want to take credit for this one, trust me!

via TweetDeck in reply to myrcurial

Oh excellent. Today has already started to not make sense.

via TweetDeck

Sat plan, draft: Laziness, interspersed with household chores and brief moments of sheer brilliance.

via TweetDeck

Saturday. This had better be good, or there’ll be hell to pay! Plus GST. Saturday.

@Herring1967 Robot sex in Malibu! I believe this is relevant to your interests. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

I’m trying to work out how you could actually deploy such a poor AV product. Even random open source stuff does heaps better.
