I haven't died, I'm just really busy. Advanced Perl 2ed is taking most of my time, and the rest is being spent managing layoff fun at Verio. This means I haven't had time to finish the Linguana data models, or many updates to my modules.
Realistically, I probably won't make much progress until just before OSCon 2002, as I'll have at least one Linguana paper there. If you've been looking for related information, please have patience. I will get busy there next year.
