I'm married and living in the mountains of western North Carolina with our 14-year-old son. I've loved Perl since 1995, when I started a web site that became my livelihood when I discovered employers would pay to put help wanted ads on it.

In Toronto for YAPC; this is so cool!

[ #25377 ]
Tonight I got into Toronto for my first trip to Canada and my first Perl conference ... wow. Big town, big hotel.

While trying to get money out of the strange cash machine in the lobby of this residential dorm (the old Metropolitan Hotel), I met Mark Stosberg, who currently maintains CGI::Application. It was so much fun to be able to talk to him about it at dinner, and his Cascade application. He's very pleased with the new plug-in capabilities that have been built into version 4 of CGI::Application and with the plug-ins that have been written for it already.

I think I passed Larry Wall in the hall. He's speaking tomorrow at 9:30 a.m.

The high-speed Internet access in the rooms works very well. Costs an extra $5 per day, but on top of the already cheap room rate it's quite a deal.

People have been friendly; there's a certain twinkle in their eye when they realize you're here for the Perl conference, too-- "Hey, another geek like me!"

A Canadian fellow came all the way from the Yukon Territory. I believe I passed Autrijus Tang (sp?) on the street; I think he flew in from China.

Really looking forward to the sessions tomorrow!
