The view from 27L. Exit row, no idea where my baggage is. Whatever. See you in Sydney, kids. instagram.com/p/BQuRzzfg_mq/

No wi-fi in this part of the airport. But I have an exit row and no clean underwear. SO MUCH WIN.

Even more betteror, my credit card has been lifted. I LOVE INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL.

via Cloudhopper

Hang on. UA863 SFO-SYD from gate 100. This is the flight I usually catch.

via Cloudhopper

That said, I’m airside and have a valid boarding pass to SYD, so I really don’t care.

via Cloudhopper

HAHAHAHAHA This is going to be so excellent.

via Cloudhopper

Bad news: UA222 is delayed. Good news: I’ve been rebooked SFO-SYD direct. Bad news: We’ve lost my checked bag.

via Cloudhopper

Of course if you know Star Trek original series, a BART train is just an extended version of the Enterprise’s shuttle craft.

via Cloudhopper

One of the things I truly love about BART is that the on-train announcements are utterly incomprehensible.

via Cloudhopper

OH, at Powell BART station:
“So, Catherine the Great ha…”
“Horses.”
“Horses!”

via Cloudhopper

I love BART. It’s like the 1970s never ended.

Gin: Finished. Bar tab: Closed. Jacket: On. BART ticket: Found. THE ADVENTURE BEGINS.

@riskybusiness @joshgnosis Belay that. I misunderstood for a moment.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@joshgnosis @FakeDanTosello Which is, of course, a conflict of interest. Sigh.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@FakeDanTosello @joshgnosis Of course the way around that is to have FOI-able data archived off the device daily or whatever.

via TweetDeck in reply to FakeDanTosello

@FakeDanTosello @joshgnosis Sorry, yes, I was miles away. And yeah, that’s a valid point, if FOI processors are to limit their viewing.

via TweetDeck in reply to FakeDanTosello

@FakeDanTosello @joshgnosis Well the tools I’d seen were from Virginia or Maryland or somesuch place. Wisconsin maybe. Penrith. I dunno.

via TweetDeck in reply to FakeDanTosello

@riskybusiness @joshgnosis Oh. Yeah. I was assuming the phone backups were encrypted. As you were.

via TweetDeck in reply to riskybusiness

@joshgnosis Yeah I know, I’ve been following your saga. Their argument seems to be there’s no faster way that the way they know.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis The forensic tools I’ve seen demonstrated then give you a browser to view and search the data.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis Well it shouldn’t be. Unlock, attach standard forensic tool to data port, wait as long as a backup takes.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis Interesting. Unlocking the phone is in theory the only way, though my understanding is that Certain People have their ways.

via TweetDeck in reply to joshgnosis

@joshgnosis I’ll also admit I spend more time looking thru the natsec lens than the anti-corruption and transparency lenses.

@joshgnosis I was thinking it must look bad thru your lens. Dunno that WhatsApp changes that, tho ASD and Archives have diff viewpoints.
