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].

new server; HOP

[ #24289 ]

At $work, I got a new production server. Setting everything up (from a fresh Debian testing install to a running webapp) took mere three hours (one of those was spend finding a patch to a module I never sent to the author..). I can vaguely remeber that the same task took me several days some years ago.

I guess the speed improvement comes from better technolgies (aptitude vs. hunting tarballs on the internet and compiling by hand (and hunting libraries needed by apps/other libraries); cpanplus vs. downloading from CPAN by hand) and better knowledge on my side (eg. compiling perl and mod_perl without needing to look at the docs; having written a test suite for the web application)

And I recieved my copy of Higher Order Perl today. Yay! Can't wait until I get on the subway to start reading...
