Stuff with the Perl Foundation. A couple of patches in the Perl core. A few CPAN modules. That about sums it up.

Irony

[ #21765 ]

I was chatting with one of our auditors today and noticed his British accent.

Ovid: What brought you to the US?
Auditor (sadly): The right-wing politics of Margaret Thatcher.

Much laughter followed.

  • Obviously, the guy tilts governments to the right wherever he goes. I say let's ship him to France.

    That doesn't need a smiley, does it?

  • Did he come over here in the 18 months that Margaret Thatcher held office before Ronald Reagan became President?

    Seems odd that you would abandon England due to Thatcher politics to run to Reagan politics in the US, the US being a generally much more conservative country than England.

    In the same period, he could have gotten fairly easy immigration to the much more liberal Canada or (at the time) Australia.
