I run Perl Training Australia [perltraining.com.au].

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.

Exporting training; Anniversary.

[ #21402 ]

Exporting Training
Most of Perl Training Australia's business domestic, but from time to time we export our training; almost always to New Zealand, which is practically another state of Australia anyway.

However today we exported training to the Netherlands. No PTA representative is traveling to Europe, nor is a delegate coming over here. Instead, the group in the Netherlands are re-selling that training to an office in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is then transferring the training to a person in their Sydney office. The person in Sydney will be attending our course.

Recursion in business is a wonderful thing.

Wedding Anniversary
Yesterday was our one year wedding anniversary. It's been a very, very fast year. We received cards, flowers, and best wishes, and went out for a lovely meal in the evening.

Coming back from dinner we helped keep a well-dressed but unconscious man in the recovery position and monitored his vital signs until the paramedics arrived. The paramedics suspected a narcotics overdose and explained that victims are usually okay provided they can provide treatment before their heart stops.

Our fellow happened to still have a beating heart, and hadn't completely stopped breathing, and so with oxygen, assisted respiration, and some very effective pharmaceuticals the paramedics had him conscious and lucid in a surprisingly short time.
