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.

BCS Followup

[ #17792 ]
Darn, I broke my new year's resolution and didn't write in this as often as I need to. I need a script to upload the text file to use.perl.org. There are a lots of modules on CPAN. I should work out which to use.

Yesterday acme, davorg and myself went to judge the BCS programming competition. We took our own team along who came a wonderful seventh out of eight teams. I would have been more disappointed but they weren't that far behind the others (remember, I got to see everyone's answers as they came in,) and they had a much smaller team than the others (only two members compared to four to five.) This put them at a significant disadvantage as they couldn't have people thinking about the other problems while they were working on one.

Next year I hope Perl will do a lot better; With more notice so that we can arrange a bigger team I think we could clear up.
