    Oops. That is all.

    Well, not quite all. The 'relay race' idea got me thinking. We should get suggestions on something for the three of us to work on; something that would hopefully be better than usual owing to us being in the same room and being able to shout at each other. We could even invite Other Perl People over occasionally to lend a hand, too. Productivity galore.

    What do you think? Does anyone have any suggestion

      What do you think?

      Pie is good.
      Pie 6 will be better.

      In a way I think this is an exception, from my recent memory the only time we've all been in at the same time, and capable of writing code, was Saturday afternoon, just before I went to the pictures.

      There's a non-domestic angle too, in case people are worrying we're going to start to argue about the washing up. I can sometimes find it really hard to get interested in someone else's suggestion, especially if it scratches none of my itches. Mark and I have this recurring conversation which goes something like:

      Me:    I'm bored and have nothing to hack on.
      Mark:  You're welcome to do anything from my todo-list.
      Me:    But none of those I care about writing

      which is especially odd as I like Marks modules, and one day will probably benefit from some of his todo-list items, should they get written.

      That's not to say I'm rejecting the idea, it's a good one, but if I don't find anyones suggestions interesting in some way they're unlikely to get the attention they need.
