@michaelneale It’s not about blood, sadly, but it is certainly something you’d be interested in.

@NuclearAnthro Yeah, the ol’ fucker had his moments.

That’s what happens when your country was a bit shit at WW2 and then continued to be a bit shit. You end up blaming a meaningless universe.

Actually the whole Disillusioned Italian Communists genre is worth the occasional read.

Actually, if I’ve said the answer to your question is to read Jorge Luis Borges then you know you’re in trouble. Also, Italo Calvino.

Also, a tessellated map projection is a glorious piece of maths. This AuthaGraph projection is magnificent. But it’s not “truth”.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

Note for the hard-of-thinking: Yes, I know the purpose of this projection is to display relative surface area, and that’s a good thing.

Only if “truth” equals “surface area” rather than “distance” or “direction”. The articles does say all maps are fal..twitter.com/i/web/status/8…Jx

@TripView @ashabeeeee Thanks for that, mate. Maybe we need separate feeds to tell is when the feeds are late. ;)

@davispg I think we know where the blame lies here, Paul.

Wait. So it’s not Delta Goodrem?

via TweetDeck

@ashabeeeee @TripView Actually I’m now wondering if it’s time for an update on how live transit data is being handled in AU. Politics etc.

via TweetDeck in reply to ashabeeeee

Ron Boswell and Delta Goodrem in the news on the same day. That’s pretty special.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@ashabeeeee @TripView You know it’s all made of data feeds, right? Just imagine that it’s all done by the ATO.

via TweetDeck in reply to stilgherrian

@richardaedy But, I’ve got a list of UX suggestions that’d increase compliance and reduce stress. Will send to @TrainLinkWest at some point.

via TweetDeck in reply to richardaedy

@richardaedy @TrainLinkWest It’s odd how a little noise in a quiet carriage is more stressful that a lot of noise in a normal one.

via TweetDeck in reply to richardaedy

@TrainLinkWest DM me where you’re based and I’ll send some in.

@formalbeer What did they do with all the minced pigs?

Great work from the guard on run W535, @TrainLinkWest. Extra Tim-Tams for him today!

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

@davispg @TrainLinkWest Tazers were discussed as a possible workaround.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to davispg

@davispg @TrainLinkWest I’ve spoken with the police about this, but they’ve pointed out that gunshots themselves would be loud.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to davispg

@formalbeer That contraption on the roof may be said scrubber. Alternatively, a thing for mincing up pigs.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to formalbeer

That reminds me, I must write up my UX notes regarding the quiet carriage notices and announcements. Lots of ways they could be improved.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to stilgherrian

I hope, @TrainLinkWest, that the guard on run W535 about to depart Central is loud and clear about the quiet carriages. Many mumble.
