In September, Telstra shutdown the 1194 Australian talking clock after 66 years.
To keep a bit of Australian phone history alive I've recreated it. Naturally it's on extension 1194 internally, but I've also pointed numbers to it covering timezones across Australia:
02 9099 4494 – Sydney/Melbourne/etc
07 3667 9594 – Brisbane
08 6244 3294 – Perth
08 7078 7794 – Adelaide
08 7918 0808 – Darwin
That was a fun little project!
It is proven! I am ewing on Keybase: https://keybase.io/ewing/sigchain#67ea6cce5098b4d97ce657d257bc2950fd86b76e7c382d1991e4a995a3fa69260f
Reading with some amusement how the luddites in the Australian government think they can get telcos to retain MAC addresses of all devices.
If only they knew how IP works. Good luck getting the MAC of any device behind my router.
Onboard B19. My first time on a new #sydneytrains Waratah Series 2. Still has that “new train smell”.
The best thing about work from home days is having Sybil the #cat sitting next to you.
She has fancy beds but this old towel is her favourite.
I'm Shaun. I live in Sydney, Australia.
During the day I do cloud computing projects for large enterprises.
After hours I love tech, travel, architecture, good food+wine, and getting out and about on my motorcycle.
I have a 12 year old #cat named Sybil who I adore.
I've recently taken an interest in a POSSE approach to my content, and finally got around to setting up my own Mastodon instance.
I post less than I should on my web site at https://shaun.net/

Oh my goodness I've just learned a thing about The Matrix that causes it to make a lot more sense: In the original script the humans were used as neural network compute clusters by the Machines and as a crucial component of The Matrix itself.
Which is why humans who were aware of the simulation could control aspects of The Matrix - their minds were part of its foundation.
Unfortunately the test audiences had trouble understanding this concept so the studio changed the human role to "batteries".
I do cloud stuff. Love tech, travel, architecture, good food+wine & exploring NSW on my motorcycle. 🏳️🌈
