I want to thank Damian for the Perl 6 talk. That was excellent. :-) Too bad I attended the seminar an hour late because of production issues at work. But luckily I didn't miss too much I think. :-)

Damian's presentation was very clear and concise, I enjoyed listening to him very much.

After seen what Perl 6 can do, my overall attitude about Perl 6 has changed a bit. I have turned from a non-believer of Perl 6 to someone who's eager to get his hands on it.

That I did. I downloaded parrot (with incomplete Perl 6 language parser) after getting back to work, and started to play with it a bit. I think it's not a bad idea afterall, especially if I could use the JIT of parrot to compile Perl 6 into native machine code (I am doing research on this at the moment), or just write a stub that has parrot attached with compiled pbc's (Parrot Byte Codes). I always wanted a true Perl compiler, and Perl 6 + Parrot seems to give the answer.
