yesterdays emergency social meeting

[ #36168 ]

... was very nice, as expected. Not only where there cocktails (combined with an extended happy hour), but lots of international guests (Nicholas, Tara, nothingmuch). In fact, there where 5 Austrians, and 5 non-Austrians (UK, US/UK, Israel/Austria, Germany, Italy (hm, I now know at least 4 Perl people with dual citizenship, and AFAIK dual citizenship is rather rare...))

Topics included how to avoid beeing drafted, London airports, Israel "fences", reproduction rates of members of various religions, dogs as liveguards for empty plastic bottles, Italian vote results, and even perlish stuff like Moose (I just love, which lets you say perl -Moose) and App::Asciio. And that's only the stuff I remember now...

  • Well, we managed to answer my question as to "what's the word for killing a cat?" (felicide - not that I'm planning it), but we didn't have a good answer for "killing a kitten"). I wonder if this lazyweb is as good as that lazyweb [] (worksafe).

  • And what was the 'emergency' part of that meeting?
    • The 'emergency' was that we had several non-Viennese Perl people in Vienna. AFAIK is to be blamed for the term 'emergency meeting' (but then is to be blamed for everything...).
      • is to be blamed for everything...

        It's only because Dave told us to []. And in turn we all blame muttley [] (but I can't remember the origin of that meme).

        "emergency" meetings are meetings that have to happen on a particular day, usually because someone is visiting, but that day happens not to be the correct day [], and keeping the regular meetings [] on the correct schedule [] is very important. :-)
