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.

A moment of rest; SAGE-AU 2005

[ #24546 ]

A moment of rest
The next month is pretty busy, with short-staffing and training courses. However I do have a small moment of rest before that starts. Both Friday (tomorrow) and Monday will be spent in my own office, and while I don't have a hope of completing the huge amount of work that I have outstanding, I expect to complete a significant portion.

Yes, I'm calling work "rest". It's restful in comparison to the remainder of the month. There's also the weekend, which will probably also be spent "resting".

SAGE-AU 2005
I've been accepted as both a tutorial presenter and technical speaker (with a double-slot) at SAGE-AU 2005. While the tutorial is on Perl (no surprise there), the presentation is on the joys of starting a small business, and how it can be very different to what most people expect. I've got plenty to write about, my main challenge (as always) is judging my audience.

For those who haven't attended a SAGE-AU conference before, they tend to be extremely well catered, and be filled with incredibly clueful people. It helps that this year has a lagoon, heated swimming pool, beach, and five-star accomodation.

    Argh. Of all the years I can't go, this would be one of them. {sigh}

    Hopefully, next year will be earlier in the year again (why getting so much later, so that it conflicts with other things I do), and I'll get to go (instead of being denied my visa like last year).

      Hmm, let me look at your schedule [stonehenge.com]: Dragon*Con [dragoncon.org], followed by two GeekCruises [geekcruises.com], including Perl Whirl where you are a speaker.

      It's a tough choice: the world's largest SF&F convention followed by a cruise in the Caribbean, or hanging out down under with Australia's best and brightest SysAdmins. I can certainly understand how you'd be dissapointed, since I clearly have the
