I help with Melbourne Perl Mongers.
I spend an awful lot of time talking about Perl, and have had my picture in the Australian newspapers with a camel. That's rather scary.
Looks like Advogato is feeling rather unwell. I find this disturbing, as I have some 3-4 years worth of diaries there. While I keep backups of almost everything that I do, I seem to have never implemented a backup strategy for my advogato blogs.
I'll scribble my thoughts on here in the meantime, especially as most of them recently have been all about Perl. However that shall be another time. I'm rather sleepy from a long week of work, and need a little sleep.
