Opportunity: use the side door

[ #1231 ]
Who's Like Us? D*mn few -- and most of 'em are dead:

My friend called. Wow. Things seem to be going pretty well, and we'll see how they go in the future. Somehow, all of my hurt and anger just faded away, when I realized who it was. So that's one more person I know in Dallas, which brings me to...

Work:

The book will go into "production" this Thursday. There's obviously some stuff left to do as the copy editors and layout folks work their magic, but the big writing duties are over. Since I'm barely paying the bills, it looks like my grand experiment has fai(including the <LINK> tag support).led, for now. I need to find a real job.

I don't know if the job offer in Dallas is still open. I resisted while things were shaky with my friend, and I'm still not sure how that's going to turn out. I'm not superstitious, but I'm not sure I should call Jeff and ask if he still has a place for me. It almost seems like if he repeated the offer, it would be a sort of sign that I should move to Dallas.

I do like it here in the Pacific Northwest, and there's plenty of family in the area... but not a lot of places looking to hire a Perl guru who's just finished a book on weblog software, with Extreme Programming and Quality Assurance experience. Yes, that's a hint.

Programming:

I see that the Everything Engine is now available under the Artistic License. There are a lot of modifications I'd like to make... lots of places where performance could be improved. Hopefully I'll have some free time to do just that.

Patching:

Fixed a bug in Perl and several in Slash (<LINK> tag support even made it to Slashdot). I really ought to write some book reviews, though the Perl Refactoring Browser looks like such an interesting project...
