I had planned on writing a long entry as to where I've been, and what I've been up to for the last two years, however a cross between Fusion and Ubuntu killed that. So here is the abridged version.
The project I'd been working on for 3 years, finally received executive approval and funding, but the timeline was extremely tight. A management change brought a lot of finger pointing, and changes to how the department functions. Even though the department was successful for the 9 years prior.
So I left. Took a new job almost a year ago doing SQL development in a data warehousing, business intelligence, environment. Quite a bit different than the transaction based database work I had been doing.
What about Perl? Well I haven't done any real Perl work in about a year now. Although I have recently started a new project (more on that to come).
For some reason, I haven't been receiving emails for my PAUSE account. I was still getting lots of spam, so I didn't think there was anything wrong. Because I wasn't getting any emails, I figured no one was using the modules I wrote. Luckily David Bartle went out of his way to track me down over some issues with CPAN::Mini::Inject (and he supplied patches with tests!). I've now changed the email address that PAUSE uses, and am receiving mail again. brian d foy has since contacted me with an issue he's seen with Test::Output so I know it's really working.
To help things along, I've moved the repositories for these projects off of my subversion server (that no one seems to know about) onto github.
The repositories can be found at:
CPAN::Mini::Inject - http://github.com/ssoriche/cpan--mini--inject/tree
Test::Output - http://github.com/ssoriche/test-output/tree
