In case you are wondering what has happened to davorg, our beloved Perl Monger leader for life, Perl's answer to George Clooney, has gone walkabout in Orange, New South Wales, leading a herd of wild camels in a joyful naked romp through the dusty streets of the Australian outback town of Orange. Well, he attended a wedding there. When we asked to see the photos he took of the town sign of Orange for Leon, he said: "Erm, I won't tell Leon I went there".
After dusting himself off, our fearless leader spruced himself up for a meeting with an eager Sydney.pm at the VC Bar at 60 Miller St, North Sydney. It was indeed a great honour to shout Dave an Aussie beer, er, orange juice. Talk ranged over many topics, even *gasp* a possible YAPC::Oceania.
When I last saw him, Dave was being hauled off into the night by the Sydney.pm equivalent of Gellyfish. And he jets off to Singapore tomorrow at the crack of dawn.
Dave, it was great to meet you and your charming wife in person and thankyou for taking the time to chat to us.
