Approaching Sydney Central station on time for our scheduled 2137 arrival, give or take. Campbelltown to Central in 33 minutes as planned.

Passing Wolli Creek.

@michaelneale I think we were a few minutes late through Campbelltown, but we’ll be at Central pretty close to our scheduled 2137 arrival.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to michaelneale

@michaelneale No stops and fangin’ it in along the East Hills line. Just passed through Riverwood.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to michaelneale

And now non-stop Campbelltown to Central in 33 minutes. This shouldn’t be much of a challenge.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Passing through Menangle, but it’s dark now so I won’t bother with a photograph.

@johnb78 @SnarkyPlatypus It’s dodgy in a lot of places, actually. More at the Canberra end than the Sydney end.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to johnb78

Mittagong, which is stupid for at least six reasons.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Departing Bowral, doubtless home of some tedious thing or another. A pointless craft, I’m guessing. And crockery.

@DavidFeng That still looks better than the three-car Xplorer DMU that does the Canberra-Sydney service three times a day.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to DavidFeng

@Rubenerd Yeah but @DavidFeng trolls us both with his tales of Chinese HSR.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to Rubenerd

I’m live-tweeting my train journey, just like @DavidFeng.

Tarago is not what you’d call a large town.

via Tweetbot for iΟS

Right, I now have a window seat and nobody next to me. Unless someone books this seat while the train is en route.

@quarrellous @BentSpokeBeer I’ll give it a try next, unless I have to bolt for the railway station.

via TweetDeck in reply to quarrellous

@SnarkyPlatypus @johnb78 It’s impressive stuff. Though I’m sure you could run this scam with far less window dressing.

@nehadk This is true. But I really did like the desserts.

I’m looking forward to @RANDCorporation’s straight-faced write-up of the Cyber Kangaroo.

via TweetDeck

@jpwarren I see it more as a public service.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren More seriously, the consensus was that this is a commercial problem that needs commercial solutions. That I agree with. Heathen.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@jpwarren How dare you doubt the power of the Cyber Kangaroo.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

@hughstephens You can do what you fuckin’ like with it.

I sometime think we should take cybersecurity more seriously, but goddammit CYBER KANGAROO.

Australian Border Force podcast: Episode 1 border.gov.au/australian-bor… Episode 2 border.gov.au/australian-bor…

via TweetDeck

@SnarkyPlatypus Yes. And as noted here, internal resources have no cost. twitter.com/jdanton/status…

via TweetDeck in reply to SnarkyPlatypus

That whole podcast proposal isn’t even high-school level. I was judge for some Year 11 internet projects and they were FAR better than this.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I wonder whether Border Force has heard of the phrase “opportunity cost”, for that matter.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I don’t think they understand “royalty-free music”. It means no ongoing cost, or price scaled to audience. You still have to buy it.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I’d like to congratulate Border Force on developing such an innovative approach to project costing. pic.twitter.com/AR9e1XCOpB

@SMinney It was Chatham House. They couldn’t ID me.

Also correct. Also, Mamak was done for short-changing staff. They deserve no respect. And the food is average. twitter.com/SnarkyPlatypus…

@wolfcat The Ploughman’s here is really, really good, but I’m having a caesar salad.

via TweetDeck in reply to wolfcat

Bent Spoke staff are wearing Christmas caps and the Ploughman’s Lunch has been re-named the Sleighman’s Lunch. These people must be stopped.

In an excellent* move the site containing the documentation I need has gone offline for “maintenance”. Which is of course code for “broken”.
