Make it habitable to the point where other people can enjoy spending more than ten minutes there.</li><li>Procrastinate less. Start with the simplest thing first and then just keep going.</li><li>Contribute some genuinely useful modules to CPAN. My only contribution to date (<a href="http://search.cpan.org/~marcb/POSIX-SchedYield-0.0.1/lib/POSIX/SchedYield.pm"> POSIX::SchedYield</a>) seemed useful enough to upload, but is hardly the stuff that'll make someones day.</li><li>Learn how to conciliate "Release early, release often" with being a control freak.</li><li>Give back more to <a href="http://perlmonks.org/">perlmonks</a> than I get from it (I suspect this is going to be the hardest, that site is just so damn helpful).</li><li>Lose weight, at least 5 kgs. I'm not really fat, but my gut shows I like the beer and it has to go. The belly, that is, the beer will continue to flow<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:-).</li><li>Transcend from test-first to test-driven development.</li><li>Start a revolution. Somewhere.</li></ul> tirwhan 2005-12-31T10:48:07+00:00 journal
