What's New With Me

[ #28210 ]

So some time back I decided to take some time off keeping up with what everyone else was doing and try to accomplish 1 of 2 things I considered to be difficult. So far I am batting 0.

The first one was a personal task - learn Tagalog (the primary language of the Philippines). I learned a few more phrases but nothing resembling fluency.

The second related to the Perl community - write a book. I actually made significant progress on this one. My idea pitched to O'Reilly was well received. I produced an outline along with mounds of research. Unfortunately, life happens and I just could not in fairness devote the time necessary to writing a book when my family deserved it more. Oddly enough, another publisher contacted me unsolicited to see if I would be interested in writing a book on Perl for them. I realized that it would have been in direct competition with O'Reilly's Cookbook series and declined.

I am not sure what I should do with the book. I have thought about using the outline to write perl.com articles instead. Maybe I should just turn over my ideas and research to brian (http://use.perl.org/~brian_d_foy/journal/28208)

In personal news - Jean and I just returned from a 3 week vacation in the Philippines. I did something pretty serious to my knee and need to go to the doctor soon.

There are other things that I want to write about but wisdom tells me that opening my mouth will remove all doubt.

Cheers,
Limbic~Region
