Teaching the Silicon to Talk:

The book went into production a day early. So far, I've approved (and fixed the numbering of) the figures and illustrations, clarified some weird formatting things, and am waiting for the next stage. I don't know what or when. It will jump out from behind a chair and yell "SURPRISE YOU ARE NOT YET FINISHED!" and I will devote another five minutes to hitting things. Mostly keys.

Reliability:

I've just finished writing an article for at Perl.com on software testing with Test::More. Expect it shortly, unless he hates my vegetable analogies.

We Can End This Chapter, Anyway, Anyway...:

Tomorrow will be devoted to updating my resume and thinking about getting in touch with the last place to offer me a job. It's all the way across the country, which has its own unique set of challenges and rewards. I broached the subject with aformentioned friend who lives in the vicinity, and there was a distinctive lack of horrified screaming.

If that sounds somewhat wishy-washy on my part, it's because I'm terribly confused by several things. Having not worked a Regular Job for 18 months, my perspective is a little skewed. Besides that, I grew up, more or less. It's weird to wake up one day and realize you're an adult, but at least it happened before I hit 30.

Next up: tests for CPAN.pm. Yow.
