Mark Fowler has never been the same since he was elected leader of the London Perl Mongers. The strain manifests itself mainly in releasing various [cpan.org] modules [cpan.org] to CPAN, giving talks [2shortplanks.com], and use of the Trelane nick on #london.pm for endless procrastination. Doctors are still seeking a cure.

As Busy as the Proverbial Bee

[ #12722 ]
This wouldn't be a proper journal if I didn't spend time whinging in it how overly busy I am atm, rather than getting on with things that I should be doing. That said, if you're reading this, then don't give me anything else to do, okay?

I fly out to YAPC::NA on Sunday, and I still need to tweak my slides. I could do that there, but I'm not taking any computer with AxPoint installed on it with me, so I'll not be able to. I guess I could install it on my Mac OS X laptop...but who has the time?

The IBM that has AxPoint installed on it's going back to IBM for some screen repair (since I'm out of the country for a week it's the only time I can realistically be without it.) Of course this means that I won't have it to generate slides. It also means I need to do a full backup before I send it away - anything important is checked into subversion, but there's probably some critical config file somewhere on this damn thing that I'll never find again. This may take several hours.

Oh, and I'm tech reviewing a book. This takes forever. Many many many many hours. And it has to be done before Wednesday.

A Non-Perl event that's taking up some of the time is my brother's wedding on Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it, but it add more complicated dependencies. For example, I've got to take my suit to the dry cleaners today if I don't want to get stressed out about it being ready in time. Maybe I should doing Gant charts and milestone diagrams. There's some other major stuff going on immediately after YAPC::NA that I need to get sorted (which I won't bother you with in my Perl journal) but let me just say I'd probably need a a2 sheet to fit my chart on if I did one.

Aside from all this, I've got the usual problem of packing, working out where my suitcase and suit carrier are. And it's not like Sky aren't showing the last ever episode of Buffy on Thursday evening, the night before I go away. Arrrgh!.
