~above - zion national park, utah, AUG 2001~

~10 JUL 2001~ i became a monk.

i'll be driving cross-country from mid-july through mid- to late august, during which time i'll take a vow of silence on perlmonks. all who wish to contact me, may do so at mikethepod at

~24 JAN 2002~ with a slight push, i became a friar

i'm back from my trip, and looking for clients. my girlfriend is currently finishing her dissertation in madison, wisconsin. i'm trying to convince myself she's only a day's drive from nyc.

~1 MAR 2002~ today i made abbot

i'm starting a job outside philidelphia, pa on wednesday, which i expect to last six months. the client does not use perl: they use only ksh. i wonder what the chances are that i'll be able to influence this? how long will i last without applying perl to my everyday business problems?

~14 APR 2002~ hmm. bishop...

...following my great tradition of updating my home node when i make the next level. ksh is boring, even with associative arrays and case statements. i'm prototyping a web front-end to a small db in perl with my downtime and trying to forget they'll want to convert it to java when i'm done.

[GotToBTru]: I appreciate the ability to highlight matching brackets/ parentheses/ braces, both for my own code and the inconsistently indented code of others
[Corion]: I like editors that automatically highlight the matching parenthesis (like % in vi), but that's roughly the extent to which I like editor support ;)
[GotToBTru]: same here Corion.
[Corion]: I tried for a short time (well, 8 hours now) to get Perl::Tidy set up but then found that it doesn't support (new-style) signatures and then stopped again ;))
[GotToBTru]: changing the font color of the rest of the document just because I typed a single quote character is annoying
