package Move; BEGIN { }

[ #658 ]

The movers are coming tomorrow to pack everything away and put it in the truck. Luckily we paid the extra to get the movers to do the packing, so all I have to do now is tidy up my office and the garage. And it's 9:15pm, and I've had a glass of wine. I wonder if my wife would kill me if she knew I was just writing my journal :-)

I also lose the connection for, and *, so if you use those, beware it will be down until the middle of next week, when I hopefully get my DSL line installed. Yay! I can't wait to browse at 500K/s rather than 64K!!!

I also started work today on a Pure Perl XML Parser. I'm basing it on the kind of parsing I did with XML::XPath (the XPath parsing, that is), which is predictive parsing. Unfortunately I'll have to do it quite differently since XPaths can be quite easily tokenised with regexps, and I don't want to go that route.

Anyway, watch this space. I hope to have bugger all to do tomorrow but stay out of the movers' way and work on it. :-)
