~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 excite.com.
~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.
