@OaaSvc @NewtonMark I’m fairly sure there’s not even an internet. We’ve been conned.

The bustling nightlife of Katoomba. pic.twitter.com/1J43ySzpYZ

OK, time to do the shopping, I think.

via TweetDeck

@thehuntinghouse What version? I’m always fully patched and I’ve not encountered that.

via TweetDeck in reply to thehuntinghouse

@NewtonMark Last I looked at the attendee list, I was the only journalist going. 2017.apricot.net/attendees/ I’ll re-check later.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Anyway, I’m happy that APNIC is paying for it all. I’ll learn a lot, meet some people, and visit Vietnam for the first time.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark I imagine that different national NICs have differing on all manner of, say, routing policies.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Yeah it seems clear to me that the official program is a fig-leaf for backroom dealmaking between the national NICs etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark That was very well played, by the way.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Hah! I’m immune to Geoff Huston’s doom-mongering. I was inoculated early on.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark This conference will remind me how much has changed since I did my own network stuff, back when. It’ll exercise old brain cells.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark Noted. I also see that Geoff Huston is doing a bunch of presentations.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@natecochrane Indeed. My personal in-my-head style book has a few peculiarities. Like I never put the stop in, say, “Mr Smith”.

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

@NewtonMark Nah, I hit that with an IPv4 address.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark That looks like AUD 5.99 well spent. Installing now.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@natecochrane Oh I just stumbled across it this evening. It looks like a reasonable starting-point if you’ve got nothing else.

via TweetDeck in reply to natecochrane

@NewtonMark Yep, it’s an iPhone 6S Plus on Telstra postpaid. Looking now.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

Hey @NewtonMark, what’s this thing called IPv6 they’re teaching people to roll out?

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Anyway, I have an interview booked in with @timoreilly, so that should be fun.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@PeteLawler I have absolutely no idea. I will be seeking advice from the locals.

via TweetDeck in reply to PeteLawler

Maybe I’ll just spend the week eating pho and drinking dodgy Vietnamese whisky.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

This will also take me further down the network engineering rabbit-hole than I’ve been in quite a while.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I say, the program for the main pat of APRICOT / APNIC43 is fleshing put quite nicely. 2017.apricot.net/program/schedu…

@bubbiting That’s true. I’d also throw in an Oxford comma, but that’s probably an old habit from writing radio scripts.

via TweetDeck in reply to bubbiting

@shaneoneill Ah, I’m actually using Google’s DNS at 8.8.8.8, which is something I’d forgotten. I used it to work around a buggy LAN once.

via TweetDeck in reply to shaneoneill

Is this another cautionary yarn about Trump and the US Constitution? I kinda hope so. twitter.com/TeenVogue/stat…

via TweetDeck

@broek_af Yeah? iTunes sorts them as if the “The” wasn’t there. Maybe it should be “Aaaardvark! The 9pm Edict”.

via TweetDeck in reply to broek_af

Did you know I did a podcast the other day? “The 9pm End of the World, Probably” stilgherrian.com/edict/00065/ Go listen. pic.twitter.com/OqrznQM95F

@ozmusiq Yep, macOS has curl. I have noted your tip for future use.

@SunEconomy Heh. Yeah I just discovered it myself. It looks quite comprehensive.

@bigbadave It’s a lovely 17C here in the upper Blue Mountains right now.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigbadave

@bigbadave I’m just drinking beer while working, and avoiding going to the supermarket.

via TweetDeck in reply to bigbadave

@ozmusiq @jetztgibtshaue No that’s not the problem. I am signed in.

via TweetDeck in reply to ozmusiq

How many Australian editors use Amanda Greenslade’s “Free Online Style Guide for Australian Writers and Editors”? editoraustralia.com

via TweetDeck

@staticsan Oh yeah, I can get there. But you can’t copy-paste from that window, at least not everything. And there’s no export button.

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

@smidgey @jetztgibtshaue @mjg59 Nah, I get the same access blocked message from the LAN side.

via TweetDeck in reply to smidgey

Just to be clear, I stopped caring about any of this about 15 minutes ago.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@troyhunt @noreasonspec @jetztgibtshaue @mjg59 I can see the certs, but I can’t see a way to export the certs. I may be blind.

via TweetDeck in reply to troyhunt

So all this is very interesting, but your recommendations are now adding up to pentesting the pub’s network from the inside. Yeah nah.

via TweetDeck

@staticsan Only by running openssl from the command line to get badcert.txt at stilgherrian.com/wp-content/upl…

via TweetDeck in reply to staticsan

Well, @jetztgibtshaue @mjg59, I tried. And the router address isn’t responding on that IP:443. pic.twitter.com/DBezWMoe1c

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue This is also some bullshit unencrypted captive wi-fi network and I feel slightly sick now.

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue Oh hang on, it’s remembering me, so cycling the wi-fi doesn’t help.

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue The pub uses some hospitality industry provider for their wi-fi. Hold on.

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue I’m using Chrome Version 56.0.2924.87 (64-bit) for macOS.

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue I must have some kiddie-grade Chrome. That “Learn more” link takes me to generic consumerwaffle. support.google.com/chrome/answer/…

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@jetztgibtshaue Good thinking. But I suspect this could have something to do with the pub’s wi-fi provider.

via TweetDeck in reply to jetztgibtshaue

@mjos_crypto Thank you, Sir, that’s doing the trick.

via TweetDeck in reply to mjos_crypto

I’m clearly not seeing something here, folks. pic.twitter.com/gTa5Zovqcb

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@jpwarren Nope. No export, and it’s not all copyable content.

via TweetDeck in reply to jpwarren

Or in Safari, for that matter.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

OK, so in Chrome, how can I grab the contents of the SSL certs for easy copy-paste?

via TweetDeck

@mjg59 @tacticalmaid @NewtonMark Thank you. I’ll let the venue know. They use some hospitality-industry provide for wi-fi authentication.

via TweetDeck in reply to mjg59

@NewtonMark @bigbadave Also, I did not accept that certificate.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark @bigbadave Ah, I’m using the wi-fi at the pub. It probably has content filtering.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@NewtonMark That sounds rather a lot like some internal SSL setup on the routers, presumably to the China access to the data.

via TweetDeck in reply to NewtonMark

@bigmac @jplonie So are you like 11yo or something?

@munin I’ve been to Bangkok twice and there were no oysters for me.

@Wyld @NewtonMark Maybe Apple just doesn’t like Google’s certs yet.

via TweetDeck in reply to Wyld

@nkav Perhaps, but I also have to use my name on things I want to work properly.

via TweetDeck in reply to nkav

@Spoonyman Indeed. There’s no way they’ll stand out from the other 1000+ vendors on the show floor.

via TweetDeck in reply to Spoonyman

@Spoonyman It continually amazes me that some PRs want to brief on things that we already know. Things that we already brief people on.

And the thing I love* most so far? This vendor’s appealing* pitch. Hint: This is not news. Buy an advert. pic.twitter.com/zWoUt1AzZQ

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Another thing I love* is the vendor that’s been emailing pitches every three days since New Year. Different headlines, same talent.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

One thing I love* about the approach to @RSAConference is the endless pleading for journalists’ time from completely unknown vendors.

via TweetDeck

@DrRhysPockett Well yes. By and large, “They” in countries like AU and US are generally trying to support democracy. Bad apples, etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to DrRhysPockett

@DrRhysPockett True. But a lot of people’s suggestions to “hide” from government agencies are based on flawed assumptions.

via TweetDeck in reply to DrRhysPockett

@munin Provided you’ve posted from two different machines in two different locations.

via TweetDeck in reply to munin

Dear Everyone, it’s a bit late to cleanse your social media accounts of anti-Trump sentiments. “They” will already have copies.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong Heh. The Vietnam War was pretty hot. But a Vietnamese friends says it’s only bitter old war veterans who care any more.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@NuclearAnthro Lulwut? Yeah, like we’ll email “semtex” and “bomb” on Jam ECHELON Day? Bah.

via TweetDeck in reply to NuclearAnthro

@ApostrophePong Oh yes, sorry, the airport code for HCMC is still SGN.

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@iain_chalmers After all, I had @JohnBirmingham’s old outfit elbow-deep in my private life a while back.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@iain_chalmers That said, I’m sure our FVEY colleagues are already well aware of my and my chaotic life.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@iain_chalmers I haven’t decided anything yet. I might just wipe my laptop and phone and take minimal data.

via TweetDeck in reply to iain_chalmers

@ApostrophePong Alas, I don’t have the budget to get to DC. If I do skip returning to SYD, my flight will be SFO-BKK and then BKK-SGN.

5th International Conference on Cybercrime and Computer Forensics (ICCCF), Gold Coast, 16-18 July. icccf2017.com.au CFP still open.

@ApostrophePong BTW, I got my US visa today, so yeah I’m in SFO from Sun 12 to Sun 19 Feb.

via TweetDeck

@ApostrophePong @samprimrose Wasn’t it on of the teachers who’d made us all lunch?

via TweetDeck in reply to ApostrophePong

@samprimrose Oh yes. And it takes time to process. @ApostrophePong and I had to do a film shoot at a school. No time, so we had an escort.

via TweetDeck in reply to samprimrose

@BXGD Oh think you still have a few journalists in The America, don’t you?

via TweetDeck in reply to BXGD

Also, I selected “Australia” from the drop-down country menu, but it was a write-in for state. So I wrote “Befuddled”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

I just filled in a form that demanded two names, so I put “Stilgherrian” and “Emperor of the Galaxy”.

I think that’s how encryption works.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

By “reliability informed”, I mean someone sent me their opinion via Signal. Everything sent via Signal is true because it’s encrypted.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

Hmmm. My phone wanted to change that to “All hail Eric”, which is suitability chaotic.

I have been reliably informed that all of the Twitter accounts for Senator Bernard’s new thing are false. Even the true ones are false.
