Anyway soon you’ll all be watching That Program and shouting at the TV so you can amuse yourself with that while I’m working.

ETA for the podcast is now more like 2300 AEST because I am either being creative or being an idiot. Sigh.

@wobster No worries. Though Tuesday will be the Solstice and the shortest day for Sydney. Choose your celebration.

via TweetDeck in reply to wobster

@wobster No. Because the Solstice is at 0834 AEST Tuesday, closer to the night of Mon-Tue. This differs elsewhere due to a round planet.

via TweetDeck in reply to wobster

Sunset. The longest night begins.

@_midofo_ Ah! If I hadn’t already set my own timers… ;)

via TweetDeck in reply to _midofo_

It’s just 30 minutes until sunset in Sydney, at 1654 AEST. Are you ready for the Solstice? twitter.com/stilgherrian/s…

@dmeeze It’s silly stuff, I agree, but a bit too difficult to explain to a non-technical audience. (I should do a column on it some time.)
