Copious Free Time

[ #1906 ]

So this is my last day in this contract. From Monday I'll have Copious Free Time.

Actually I may not. Here's a list of things that I want to get done next week.

  • Finish writing my talks for the German Perl Workshop
  • Finish an article on the Template Toolkit that I promised to one of the UK Linux mags two months ago
  • Write an article on nms without being rude about Matt Wright
  • Write up a book proposal
  • Start work on a paper for TPC
  • Start work on my new Data::Distributor module idea

I've probably forgotten stuff. I'll probably find I just hang out on #perl and instead :-/

Oh, I guess I should add "find a job" to that list.

    • I dunno, it wouldn't be too hard to write a good article that doesn't slam Matt too hard. It just takes effort and care. Something along the lines of:

      Many web sites use scripts from Matt's Scripts Archive, run by Matt Wright. These are programs written when Matt was much younger and still learning Perl, and he hasn't kept them updated over the years, and they are filled with numerous bugs and security flaws. Until now, however, there's been a lack of alternatives, and those alternatives in existence w
