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.

No free time; diving

[ #24068 ]

No free time
Up until about 5pm today my April calendar was surprisingly free. This is very rare. Normally having a free day or week is pretty amazing, let alone an entire month. I had planned to catch up on all those things that I consider overdue the business paperwork, scuba equipment servicing, buying a wetsuit, harvesting wild plants, investment decisions, writing articles and courses, recreational programming, and a good deal of relaxation.

At 5pm a nice client called and asked if they could book me for the next four weeks. There's a few executive decisions that need to be made their end, but there's an excellent chance that it will go ahead.

The way I figure it is that I'm exchanging one month in return for sufficient funds for five perpetual days. Put another way, this potential month of work means I can five days a year less each year for the rest of my life. That's pretty good.

My next free period is in October, which we have been planning for a holiday since last year.

Diving
Have at least one, and hopefully two, weekends of diving coming up. This will probably be our last chance to go diving in Melbourne before it gets too cold. I'm a little envious of our friends with drysuits who can brave Melbourne's cold waters all year round.
