It seems like it has taken ages to arrange, but the time is finally here. I have the movers coming on Monday. They say it will take three days to pack up my house into a 40ft container. Then its bye-bye to everything for at least six weeks.
I have tickets booked to fly to Dallas on Friday, then its a week of house hunting before I start back at work.
Hopefully it will not be too long before I find a house to buy in Dallas and get broadband access again. Until then I am in temporary housing, so I will probably have to use dialup from home. Of course I will have internet access from work, but with TI's firewall policy it will be resticted to http access only.
So if anyone is trying to contact me over the next few weeks, don't be surprised if the response is slow.

Neither am I because the details you give me are nothing. You give
nothing then there is nothing I can return.

OK, maybe I was a bit blunt in my first reply, but he then followed this with a long essay, which I just ignored.
Then today, over a month later, I get
"Neither am I"? Are you sure you didn't mean "So am I"?
Do i need to write you another fucking 50 page guide on how to
communicate online for those who never learnt to communicate offline?
Which is nothing more than an attack on me and only served to get him added to a blacklist.
Why do people shoot themselves in the foot by directly attacking the same person they are trying to ask for help?
This time at TI I should get to do much more perl stuff too.
I have also just heard that that TI will be applying for an expedited VISA, so I could be back in Dallas before October. Wheee!!!
I have worked from home for many years now and to be honest I am quite looking forward to returning to working in an office. Working from home really narrows that line between work and non-work and whenever you are at the computer you feel you should be doing work.
I have had some problems recently with buffer under run while buring CDs on my iBook. So I decided to try to burn to a CD-RW, after all if the burn fails I could just erase the disk and retry.
Well thats what I thought. The problem is that when you insert a disk OS X tries to mount it. But instead of warning it cannot mount it, it keeps on trying, *forever*. The only way I have found to stop it is to eject the disk, although it can take sometime to respond to the eject key being pressed. So there is no chance to erase it.
Oh well I suppose my wifes windows box has to be useful for something
Today I finally changed search over to using Pod::Simple::HTML, with a few modifications, which has resulted in a speedup of more than 5x in rendering POD pages. The changes I made have been sent to Sean and will hopefully be in the next release.
