Just in case you like to know, I'm currently full-time father of 2 kids, half-time Perl hacker, sort-of DJ, bicyclist, no longer dreadlocked and 33 years old

I'm also head of Vienna.pm [pm.org], maintainer of the CPANTS [perl.org] project, member of the TPF Grants Commitee [perlfoundation.org] and the YAPC Europe Foundation [yapceurope.org].

I've got stuff on CPAN [cpan.org], held various talks [domm.plix.at] and organised YAPC::Europe 2007 in Vienna [yapceurope.org].

Because they didn't want to support another database. They are using Oracle and MySQL, and that's it. I was lobbying for Postgres, but in the end the corporate policy won. I can see their point, but it was still painful...

The new and shiny oe1.orf.at is finally online!

As you might expect it's crafted using the finest ingredients of Modern Perl: Catalyst, DBIx::Class, Moose, HTML::FormHandler, KinoSearch. Relaunching the site was a nice project, even though there were some setbacks:

The hackathon will start in ~ 2 weeks, so here's a quick update on our status:
  • We have a new sponsor: 123people.com. Yay! pst++
  • Unfortunately David Golden, Ricardo Signes and Barbie can not make it.
  • We accepted two last-minute requests from Miyagawa and Gabor Szabo.
  • There was a tiny problem with the hotel, which luckily got spotted by Ovid. We have fixed that problem now.

Especially as after briefly skimming the docs the only differences between the two seems to be dance(); vs shagadelic();, but I know there has to be more to it :-)

It came to my attention via brian d foy's blog post that the next Nordic Perl Workshop will take place in Iceland - which sounds very interesting. At the same time I decided that I need to take a longish break after working very hard for the last two years. So I will combine my holiday with NPW!

After typing ack 'sub foo' lib for the approximately thousandth time during some refactoring sessions, I couldn't be bothered anymore and added the following snippet to my realias (after some googling on how to get params into an alias, which does not work in bash, so I had to solve it via a bash function):

sack () {
   ack "sub $1" lib
}

The "Search" on freedb.org is really bad, IMO. I usually have to click through some pages until I find the metadata I'm looking for.

And I'm not sure if submitting data generated from vinyl will work, because the whole point of freedb and all this CD-autometadata-thingy is that they take a checksum of the CD and use it to look up the correct track listings (/me thinks...)

During YAPC::Europe, Nicholas Clark mentioned a new util called perlthanks. It's basically perlbug, but for submitting thank-you-notes instead of bug reports. Nicholas said nobody had submitted a proper perlthank yet. So after installing 5.10.1 today, I said thanks.

It seems that I missed "first post" by two slots, but well...
