Sitting on IRC, playing with my MD player and trying to figure out its FUCKED UP INTERFACE.

Finally succumbed and downloaded a flash player. Skin Two's fetish doll almost makes it worth it though. I've got me a dreadlocked, tattooed Asian girl wearing "armour" and "warrior" gear.

Found out airfare prices for YAPC::Europe today. Hopefully I can get someone else to pay for it :) Also started the ball rolling for YAPC::Australia. Hope lenzo gets back to me soon so I can get a real website happening.

Perl 6 proceedeth apace. All caught up on the -language list, as much as I ever will be.

Meanwhile, heaps of interesting contracts seem to be popping up in Netizen-land, and everyone seems pretty happy... even though one of the coolest one is in Forest Hill. Our guys didn't like going to Wheelers Hill to do Perl/database/ecommerce stuff, but they seem to not mind the idea of Forest Hill for more interesting work.

Why are so many places with "hill" in the name so flat? I heard of a tshirt a while ago that said "I climbed Mount Druitt". Those who know Sydney's west will get the joke, I guess.

Business cards due soon. I'm going to be a "General specialist". Bron's going to be a "special generalist". Someone else is getting a surprise set of cards, but I can't say who, because that would spoil the surprise. Duh.

Tanqueray is good but not as good as Bombay Sapphire. And the ingredients list for Bombay Sapphire is tres cool.
