Only started with Perl4 and Perl5 in 1995. I was doing AWK etc for 12 years before that, and resisted switching. I've been doing OO since before C++ hit bigtime, with Objective-C and SmallTalk, so I really like the (no longer new) Perl5 OO style; and the Lispish Map style is also an old friend. What do I hack with Perl? All data that passes my way; systems monitoring scripts at $DayJob, weather data at night, and I cheat on NPR word puzzles.

Blizzard vs Boston.PM

[ #22882 ]
The previously mentioned blizzard rearranged my weekend as well as others' and cancelling Boston.PM's already once postponed Tech meeting as collateral damage. At www.Arisia.org, I did see two Boston.PMongers - Emily and Dante were each there.

Dante was running the useful Lan party, the Internet room. (There was also a recreational Lan party in the gaming room which was otherwise otherwise table-top gaming.) This was particularly useful as the hotel's meetingroom WiFi and pay-inroom BB were unreliable at best, and in Blizzard conditions I wasn't going to be walking down Newbury Street to get free bits (WifiMug ).

Luckily for me, Emily's photo of me didn't come out well.
