On my way to the 2009 Perl QA Hackathon in Birmingham

[ #38703 ]

I am writing this entry from Dubai airport, 16 hours into my 27 hour two-leg flight to Birmingham (Which, by the way, is a new record fastest time for me, since going to the UK and certainly anywhere other than London is usually a 3-leg flight).

Nerd hihglights of the trip so far include a brief sighting of the "Civil Engineer Porn" Burj Dubai as my flight was coming into land, and the somewhat astonishing moment when every single entertainment-related seat and wall screen on my Emirates SYD -> DXB flight simultaneously triggered a linux kernel panic and rebooted.

Holding true to it's reputation (at least in Perl QA/CPAN circles) as the most incompetant Linux distro, the OS used for the entertainment system was of course RedHat.

On the suggestion of RJBS, I've also been hacking towards a "Strategic Module Reserve", a collection of previous half-completed modules that I can drop onto PAUSE as soon as he pulls ahead :)

  • See you Friday night, then. I wish at some point I could get you so frustrated with wanting to do new things with TAP that we could "borrow" some of your energy for a while. I could even donate a test module or two for your CPAN numbers :)
