Just a simple [cpan.org] guy, hacking Perl for fun and profit since way back in the last millenium. You may find me hanging around in the monestary [perlmonks.org].

What am I working on right now? Probably the Sprog project [sourceforge.net].

NZOSA Fun

[ #34722 ]

So as I mentioned the other day, I went to the New Zealand Open Source awards this week. The current president of the NZ Open Source Society is Don Christie. Don is also a director at Catalyst IT Ltd where I work. When he came out to give his speech, Don arrived at the podium, squinted out into the spotlights and delivered this classic opening line:

«It's not like doing it in front of the bathroom mirror is it»

Fast forward to Friday and I'm alone in the lunch room at work waiting for my sandwich to toast. I saw the whiteboard and decided to try my hand at immortalising that line with a cartoon. Sadly my drawing skills are rather poor but I was happy enough with the results - I thought it might be a minor talking point at beer o'clock that evening.

A little over one hour later, I was back at my desk and thought I'd see if any pictures of the awards dinner had shown up on Flickr yet. So I did a search for 'nzosa' and got exactly one result.
