For those who are wondering where the hell I've been, I have a friend from the Netherlands staying with me and we'll be at OSCON, the Open Source Convention, being held here in Portland, for the coming week. Amongst other things, the Perl Conference 8 is being held there. Admittedly this doesn't mean much to most of you, but it's pretty important to me from a professional stand-point.
Plus, I get to catch up with friends from all over the world. Tough to beat that :)
