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.

Meetings, Meetings and Meetings

[ #18279 ]
So, there's been three London.pm meetings since I last wrote. First, there was the heretics meeting that took place at the Founders Arms. That was nice: Sitting by the side of the river on the first day of the year warm enough to do it. I still can't believe the barman had to ask "Are you serious" when I ordered twenty pints of special, a waggledance and a pint of lemonade. Maybe he had something against us Lemonade drinkers.

The main social meeting this month was at the Windmill on the eve of Good Friday, which meant it wasn't that busy. It's a small venue though so it filled up all the same. I was plagued by a terrible headache the whole day and ended up burbling to myself in the corner, or so it seemed.. hitherto finally turned up and we wished him a happy birthday in the traditional way(we bought him booze.)

Finally Abigale and his fiancee were in town, and unexpectedly so was I (long story...short version: don't lose your passport) so a few of us met up with them at the Windsor Castle (no, not that one, the pub in Notting Hill) yesterday and ate the truly excellent sausages.
