via TweetDeck

I think I’ll get complaints about my next choice… ;)

Now playing: Pop Will Eat Itself, “Touched By The Hand Of Cicciolina” youtube.com/watch?v=LNWu7E…

via TweetDeck

I think the only choice here is to change direction…

via TweetDeck

Hmmm… I’m not sure where to go after this track.

Now playing: Underground Resistance, “Jupiter Jazz” youtube.com/watch?v=xQv3dC…

via TweetDeck

Of course the correct orthographyis “U.S.U.R.A.” but it’s a holiday Monday.

via TweetDeck

@Retrovertigo Well, I might be flipping between Belgium and Italy, based on my random walk through YouTube’s recommendations and my memory.

via TweetDeck in reply to Retrovertigo

Now playing: Usura, “Open Your Mind” youtube.com/watch?v=7sPUpK… This is too easy.

via TweetDeck

Now playing: Praga Khan, “Injected With A Poison” youtube.com/watch?v=ikGtCA… I could say it’s in support of Belgium, but that’d be a lie.

via TweetDeck

Now playing: Lords of Acid, “I Sit On Acid (Extended Remix)” youtube.com/watch?v=YSdaag…

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin @AlisterAir @awelder If by “reality” we mean “how multi-million node networks are actually built”.

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin @AlisterAir @awelder Heh. Yes, arguments over NBN have always been in a different ontological realm from reality.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin @AlisterAir Suddenly thinking that @awelder may not have wanted to go this far down the rabbit hole. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin @AlisterAir @awelder Mate in Telstra Wholesale compared fibre to rats. “Can’t see ‘em, but there’s lots close by.”

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@R_Chirgwin @AlisterAir @awelder @NewtonMark True. When we needed more copper in Redfern around 2000, they just laid in fibre as well.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@JayMo31415 @R_Chirgwin Yep, it’ll keep happening for a few more days until Telstra gets it all sorted out.

via TweetDeck in reply to JayMo31415

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark Indeed. This was back in slide rule and drafting table days, remember.

via TweetDeck in reply to CameronWatt

@NewtonMark @AlisterAir @R_Chirgwin @awelder Is that just for the trench/duct, minus cable/fibre? Or full fibre cost?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark His real-world example was when a prototype Lightning got a fuel leak. Had to advise the pilot eject or return.

via TweetDeck in reply to CameronWatt

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark He taught me the importance of being so familiar with a problem you could do quick estimates in your head…

via Twitter Web Client in reply to CameronWatt

@AlisterAir @R_Chirgwin @awelder @NewtonMark I’m now out of my depth, haven’t done envelope-costing of this in ages. Gut feeling: nope.

via TweetDeck in reply to AlisterAir

@AlisterAir @R_Chirgwin @awelder @NewtonMark Not that many, really. And you’re paying up front to dig / build 50-year infrastructure.

via TweetDeck in reply to AlisterAir

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark The engineers enjoyed telling me what all these phone and electricity bills paid for, and I was eager to learn.

via TweetDeck in reply to CameronWatt

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark My first real job was the (then) Dept of Aviation engineering branch in SA/NT, paying bills and maintaining docs.

via TweetDeck in reply to CameronWatt

@CameronWatt @NewtonMark I think ILS is always-on, ‘cos you’d have several aircraft coming down the slot at 120-second intervals.

via TweetDeck in reply to CameronWatt

@ben_hr @awelder @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark Yep, and there’s also city-level gigabit fibre, like in Chattanooga TN and Lafayette LA.

via TweetDeck in reply to ben_hr

@awelder @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark Back in the early 90s (?) there were all manner of ideas for community / grassroots mesh networks.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@awelder @R_Chirgwin Indeed, that’s how @NewtonMark connected me to the internet thru APANA/APANIX back in the day. We shared costs.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@awelder @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark Absolutely. The internet as a network-of-networks is designed for additions at every scale…

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@R_Chirgwin @awelder @NewtonMark And there’s little chance of BMCC approving a DA for another tower.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@awelder Take all those figures with a big grain of salt. It’s been years since I costed out fixed microwave links. @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@awelder @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark Bandwidth is free after initial capex (well, there’s power, some maintenance), but real estate costs kill.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@awelder @R_Chirgwin @NewtonMark Fixed tower microwave links are ~$30k/link and say $150k/tower, plus or minus a bunch. My memory is old.

via TweetDeck in reply to awelder

@NewtonMark @pascalg15 @R_Chirgwin @DrMel_T @bigjsl OK, upper Blue Mountains doesn’t seem worth your own pipes.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@pascalg15 @R_Chirgwin @DrMel_T My understandong is iiNet has its own separate backhaul capacity, but @bigjsl or @NewtonMark will know.

via TweetDeck in reply to pascalg15

@R_Chirgwin … but the usual end-of-long-weekend congestion is not helping.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Hey that’s not a bad effort to restructure RADIUS nationally, which I believe is what’s happening…

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @pascalg15 @DrMel_T Yeo, ‘cos iiNet uses iiNet’s RADIUS infrastructure, not Telstra’s known-broken RADIUS.

via TweetDeck in reply to pascalg15

@R_Chirgwin You can’t do anything to change the situation except wait until the congestion clears. Telstra expect to fix RADIUS by 30 March.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin Ah, the “Sure, we can build an atomic aircraft!” principle. [Nods.]

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@R_Chirgwin Oh that’s congestion. RADIUS request for IP address renewal times out. This is the fault Telstra is currently fixing nationally.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin Oh the beacon thing was a separate, idle question. I know what they do, I used to pay their electricity bills. :)

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin I hadn’t realised jet engines caused EMI. Is it reflections off the turbine blades, or what?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin Where are the marker beacons for YSSY 16R?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin OK, then it’s not comms, but radar. And now I remember it was only on the heavies, not the mid-sized jets.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin It also fucked up our cheap crappy digital TV box, necessitating a reboot.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin All I know is I could reliably tell a medium to heavy jet was about to come over by wi-fi drop just beforehand.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin I thought I could detect a difference, but then a go-around would put the aircraft higher, increasing reflections?

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin I thought radio comms. But this guy things radar reflections. stilgherrian.com/politics/sydne…

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin We could tell, from duration of disruption, whether flight approaching 16R was cleared to land or told go around.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @R_Chirgwin Happened all the time in Enmore. High-powered ATC signal causes wi-fi TX to reset.

@R_Chirgwin @bigbadave Even if you can’t ping everything to everything individually, you can usually do it in steps and make deductions.

via TweetDeck in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin @bigbadave Log into the modem, ping outwards. If it shows no packet loss, but there is from your laptop, problem is the wi-fi.

@R_Chirgwin After the rain, I’d also reboot the modem. I’ve found that some cheap DSL modems don’t properly retrain up, only down.

@R_Chirgwin I’ve seen it before at the end of long weekends etc. Keep the kids amused while stuck in 5km traffic jams.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Or if it’s wi-fi dropout, it may be aircraft comms causing a dropout. I’ve seen that happen sometimes.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin I’ve noticed congestion at 0800-0900 weekdays as businesses come online.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to R_Chirgwin

@R_Chirgwin Dropouts or congestion? I’ve noticed packet loss when the highway is full of cars and people on 4G. Backhaul is shit, I think.
