If O'Reilly cooperates, I'll go to OSCON

[ #25837 ]

I was asked if I was interested a couple of months ago, but it wasn't until yesterday that approval came through for the company to pay for it. Of course then I had to OK it with my wife (because she's working and it will leave her with extra child care she wasn't prepared for). That's OK as well, so I'm going!

So I bought my airline ticket, then tried to buy a conference ticket. Wrong order. O'Reilly can't process my order. :-( I sent them an email, got no reply. So I waited a while, tried again from the same form and got no confirmation page. My credit card didn't show a charge, so I figured that there was a timeout on their end. I tried from the start again, got to the end and again they can't process my order.

So right now I'm flying to Portland at the same time as a conference that I can't purchase a registration at. Wonderful.

In other news, my employer is looking for another developer. If you're good at Perl and are interested in working for Rent.com (a subsidiary of eBay) in Santa Monica, I can put you in touch with my boss.

  • My credit card had a hold put on it because of unusual activity.

    Well, I admit that I don't often fly in the middle of the week and then sign up for a conference, but it was legit. :-)

    All straightened out now.

    Cheers,
    Ben
